Tiny and very useful charger – Mini 1A Lithium Battery Charging Module - Blue Reviews

posted by claudiopolis on 04/27/2013 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Very small, manufacturing quality is better than expected. This one charges any li-ion cell. Perfect for low power hobby projects. I ordered six, all are in good working condition. Very easy to integrate in projects. Completely flat backside, just some double tape on it and it's good to go in just about any project case..
Cons:
No mounting holes. I didn't needed those anyway but others may find them useful. Blue led for charging, red led for completely charged ... could have been the other way around. Measure charging current was only 500mA but that could have been my cell's fault, it's old. One month delivery time, I had to be very patient.
Other:
Maybe using two in parallel on several 18650 cells also connected in parallel could halve the time needed for charging, I didn't tried that yet, but I will.
Bottomline:
I'm happy I got them, I shall use every one of them.
