Super duper battery booper – Universal Cell Phone Lithium Battery Charger (US Plug/100V~240V) Reviews

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

Pros:
super simple uses a third movable "stud" to keep the battery straight across the contacts. springs open enough to charge EVERY old cell phone and tablet battery I own. Spring is stiff enough to hold the battery securely, but not at all hard to spring out to place the battery in for charging.
Cons:
The swing out plug is a little funky. It is a non-polarized "US plug" that works OK, but doesn't stay in an older wall outlet very well. NO instructions.
Other:
Even Google translate had no idea how to translate the writing on the box. Combined with the non-polarized 'almost-US' plug... I suspect this is meant for the Japanese market? Or possibly, it is just a Chinese Unpolarized NEMA 1-15 plug? Either way, It's better to plug into a power strip, with a second outlet supporting the body. Usb port is a nice addition, if you have a spare phone battery, but no dedicated battery charger. this lets you charge over usb AND keep your spare topped up. Voltage sags a bit under "rated" draw, but still charges phones fine. Would not suggest trying to charge your tablet through that port however.
Bottomline:
Charges the batteries. Cheap as can be. Gets the job done.
