Not to bad – Digital Balanced Li-Ion/LiPo/NiCD/NiMH/Pb Battery Smart Charger and Discharger Reviews

posted by utopiazz on 09/16/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
+ All cables supplied
+ Easy instructions
+ Sturdy Case
+ Temp probe supplied
+ Backlit screen
+ Charges almost anything
+ You can save charging profiles
Cons:
- Buzzer to loud
- USB port is not a USB port
- Inaccurate when balancing
- Gets hot when discharging (no fan)
Other:
The charger is cheap and it does what it is suppused to do. It is a good field charger or for charging LiPos for storage.

It also has a function for measuring capacity. But that seems to be quite inaccurate compared with my high end charger. The indication of capacity is quite good but it shows about 5% too much.
When discharging it gets quite hot. Put it on something that wont burn. For iinstande a ceramic tile when using indoors.
Bottomline:
It is a good charger for the beginner or for field use. There are plenty of similar chargers but with a higher pricetag.
