Good PCM, but need upgrade – Charge/Discharge Protective Circuit Board for Rechargeable Li-Ion Batteries (17.4mm*1.9mm) Reviews

Pros:
Good PCB, good quality factory soldering. Also good solder pads, easy to use. Terminal voltage rating not very good, but acceptable. Short circuit protection also works well.
Cons:
Low work current in this version - about 3,5 - 4A max. I need about 7-8A, so last time i brought this PCM 2x in quantity for resoldering. I remove chip from one board and solder it to empty place on another for more current rating.
Other:
Good quality PCM board for protecting your LiPo/LiCo cells
Bottomline:
Good buy for low current applications (2-3 A), need upgrading for more current ratings
