You get what you pay for....NOT – 18650 Digital Battery Charger Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Great deal - can't go wrong Surprisingly compact Has overcharge protection circuitry No cables to tangle
Cons:
Single circuit even though there are 2 charging bays. Better to charge one battery at a time. Otherwise, lower charge battery will not be fully charged when first battery hits 4.2V.
Other:
I saw and heard an arc at the electrical socket twice (out of 3 times) while plugging in the device. I make sure to plug in with no battery installed so a surge doesn't burn out the protection circuit on the battery.
Bottomline:
I am very pleased with this charger and feel it is a great deal. While waiting for delivery, I had wished I purchased the 1251 charger. I will eventually get the 1251 but I will buy one more of these too ~ one for home, one for the office.
