Don't leave it alone – OEM 2*18650 Lithium Battery Charger (110V~240V AC) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
* Decent charging time * Can be used for protected batteries (how ever som batteris may be a tight fit) * Dual-channel (see cons) * Cheap * Fairly good build quality * Good "full battery" indication, however it fails to stop charging when the light turns green (see cons)
Cons:
* The charger does NOT stop to charging when the light turns green. The green light usually comes on at 4.17v, but if I leave the battery in for another 10 minutes and check the voltage, the batteries are usually 4.19-4.20 volt. * The dual channels are not 100% independent of each other. This is not a con as long as the user keeps an eye on the lights and takes out batteries when the light turns green.
Other:
I have never been able to charge my batteries to more then 4.21 volt with this charger, but that could be due to the fact that I have protected batteries. I have never tried to overcharged batteries intentionally , and I probably never will.
Bottomline:
This is a fairly good charger for someone who has few batteries and does not want to spend much on a charger. However if you plan on charging your batteries while not in the same room and awake, I would go for a high-end charging, as lithium charging is a dangerous process.
