Doesn't last => unrelyable => safety hazard – Mystery Balance Charger for 2/3-Cell Lithium Ion/Polymer Batteries Reviews

posted by Grexter on 06/05/2010

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

Pros:
It FEELS well made, sturty, alloy construction. When it worked, it worked :)
Cons:
Broke after around 10 hours of use/ 5 months. Both leds are blinking and not charging the battery. Yes, I have triple checked with 3 different batteries and 2 different chargers.
Other:
Suppose they spent the money on the nice anodized alu-housing, and cheaped out on the guts. This is NOT cool, the only thing more dangerous than a lipo battery is the lipo charger... Imagine if the auto cut-off breaks next time, that could easily start a fire.
Bottomline:
Do NOT buy this one.
