Would be nice if it came with plugs to make up bal – Digital Balanced Li-Ion/LiPo/NiCD/NiMH/Pb Battery Smart Charger and Discharger Reviews

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 things. And it would help a lot if I didn't need a magnifying glass to read it at all.
Heat dissipation ought to be better.
Other:
The buzzer is VERY loud - but it can be turned off. Personally I prefer to leave it on on general safety grounds.
Bottomline:
Non-working USB port is a pity. Would be nice if it was usable for logging stuff. Not a deal breaker though. Charges things just fine, replaced quite a lot of other chargers.
