Suprisingly Well Build – Mystery Balance Charger for 2/3-Cell Lithium Ion/Polymer Batteries Reviews

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

Pros:
Right after I received it, I opened it up. It is suprisingly well build. The blue metal package is very well machined, looks sharp but with no sharp edges. It is as well build casing as an iPod nano. Aluminium, very light too. They used high quality PCB and well-layouted and marked. Looking at the SMD parts they used to build the thing, it seems like a high quality product.
Cons:
The whole product could be smaller. Plenty of extra space inside the casing. Casing is designed for 2 PCB, could have taken advantage of that. Charge quite slowly. Faster charging will welcomed. Cannot directly connect to 240V supply. Need to use own 240V-12V power brick.
Other:
There's 2 SMD chip that is marked with black marker to prevent cloning of the product.
Bottomline:
Everything looks beautiful, outside and inside. Looks just like what Apple would have made. It really only have 1 function, that is to charge batteries. Haven't test whether there is overcharge protection.
