Perfectly adequate for the job in hand – CR2 Battery Charger Reviews

Pros:
Great charger. Can be used to charge either CR123A batteries, or by adding a little spacer CR2 batteries. Have tested for both batteries and charges quickly without batteries getting hot. I think it charges marginally quicker than the DSD charger, but appears to keep the voltage lower (i.e. around 3.7v instead of 4.2v). Since I'm using unprotected batteries, I haven't tried to charge them any higher so it's hard to tell.
Cons:
The silver finish is obviously very cheap and has started to rub off already. But do I care? No, not at all. It's a charger. To charge things. Looking pretty isn't in the remit of a charger, so it's not important to me.
Other:
Really good price for this. Have used it on a few cycles and all appears good so far. Will report back if anything should go wrong.
Bottomline:
You need to charge CR2 batteries? Why look elsewhere as this charger is cheap and works well. Pretty compact too, which, if you're like me and have tons of chargers and adapters is a good thing.

Thanks again, DX.
