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

Pros:
This looks like the Nitecore i2. In fact, not only the "looking", the case or the status leds. It also is similar in "working". It charges perfectly Ni-Mh and Li-Ion, with (seems to) an adecuate charging algorithm The 2 channels are completely independent, and the charging current seems to be 500mA as in the specifications. The LED´s show the charging process. Each led means about 33% of the charging done... It can be powered via mains 110-220v or 12vDC with an adapter (not included). The packaging is nice too, and it includes a mains cable
Cons:
Is a bit ugly in the frontal part where the "marsfire" logo is placed, because if the huge venting holes it has
Other:
When battery is fully discharged all the 3 blink. Then when the battery is more than half, only 2 will blink. Then when charge is almost complete, only 1 will blink. When the charge is done, all 3 leds are light with no blinking.
Bottomline:
Good Ni-Mh and Li-Ion charger for a adecuate price. Recommended when you can not buy something more expensive
