Charges batteries--if they fit. – Lithium Battery Charger for 18650 (100V~240V) Reviews

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

Pros:
It is affordable and somewhat easy to use (if you can get the cell into it--see the cons for more information).
Cons:
There's really only one con. Unfortunately, it is a big one. Two of the 18650 cells I bought (sku.20392) to use with this charger don't even fit in it. While another two I have (sku.5790) fit with some effort (and even more effort to remove them).
Other:
The indicator lamp on the unit will light if it is plugged into the wall or if a cell is in it. It would be nice if the indicator would blink if the cell was charging and stay steady when it was charged (or something like that).
Bottomline:
I have two of these chargers and will likely be modifying one of them to see if I can get my cells to fit nicely, otherwise I'll be buying a different charger.
