    good charger

    posted by danko1 on 01/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good and versatile charger for the money, obviously does the job, values seem pretty precise- sometimes 120min need to be exceeded for proper charging. pretty small. powerplug makes it easy to use 12V-5A Charger as a powersupply
    Cons:
    User manual in poor English and too short, Charger not intuitive to figure out, is to hard to know how its works, it doesnt cam...

    Good Deal

    posted by Watslaw on 07/25/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I managed to charge everything I saw around: starting from AA/AAA batteries (using RE magnets) and electric screwdrivers and up to multi-cell laptop battery (certainly, having removed its case cover and giving a personal charge to each 18650 cell. It will p...
    Cons:
    Certainly, the very first - is a lack of main power supply. But this charger is intended for outdoor use (I mean for charging b...

    Cons:
    PLugs for balancing are non standard and proprietary for RC-Battery Packs. Had to improvise and build them from IC-DIL-sockets ...

    posted by bugxo on 02/14/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Charges most types of batteries. Works OK if you understand what are you doing. Have external thermal sensor. Nice design. Ease to use (menu is OK, Buttons too). Has sound alarm
    Cons:
    Transistor is not thermally connected to case (discharging with more than 2A at 4V (8W) can overheat the transistor and destroy...

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

    Pros:
    - Universal charger (the last charger you will probably ever need) - Very useful if you have many types of batteries - Includes thermal sensor - Solid build quality - 50W of charging power - Time, capacity and temperature charging end points
    Cons:
    - User manual in poor English and too short - Charger not intuitive to figure out (bad combo with con N1) - Overcharged my Ni...

    Would be nice if it came with plugs to make up bal

    posted by DonaldM on 03/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Charges most things. I've even charged a car battery with it - albeit somewhat slowly. With a bit of ingenuity making up battery holders it can be persuaded to charge most things though a lower current option for small capacity cells would be nice.
    Cons:
    Manual is confusing and a poor print job - the pictures are hard to make out. Nor does it do a very good job of explaining thin...

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

    Pros:
    Charge almost anything. Build quality was better than I expected.
    Cons:
    5W maximum discharge means it can take very long to discharge a higher voltage pack. Didn't detect the peak on a brand new NiMH...

    posted by Moritz on 01/05/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works great, and brought back some batteries to live. Charges much better than all the other Chargers I own. Supports all kind of Batteries.
    Cons:
    Sometimes the auto mode does not stop the charging (perhaps defect battery), so it is important to use the timer and the temper...
