Pros:
Well, it worked fine with 2 14500 batteries. The batteries don't get too warm, neither does the charger. Did not measure any voltage or amperes. After charging the batteries, they seemed ok.
Cons:
The third battery was too much. The led started blinking green and does that now continuously, no matter if there is a battery or not, or if the battery is full or empty. While it worked, the battery did not fit very well. I needed to be quite careful that the battery gets contact and it would charge. I also tried one 18650 battery and that had a bit same issues. But not sure about that, since then the green light was already blinking.
Other:
Try to find another one that is better built. At least I hope I find one, since now I have 2 full batteries and 4 empty ones... And no charger.
Bottomline:
It might be that I was just unlucky, but wasn't very impressive.
