The Best Value in an 18650 charger – 2x 18650 Digital Battery Charger Reviews

posted by damilkman on 06/23/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It plugs directly into the wall avoiding a tangled cord. Cheapest charger. Reliable and efficient.
Cons:
Lack of safety - The charge is not independent for each side and so if one is faulting the charger will not recognize this and go into melt down. On the other hand, if one battery is just below the voltage cut off point and will not charge by itself, you can put one in that is close and bring the low voltage battery back from the dead. Caution MUST be observed when practicing this. If you do not understand - don't try it.
Other:
LiPo batteries are great but they hold huge amounts of energy and some homework is needed before anyone starts using them. We use them at work for our flashlights and have saved hundreds of pounds of mercury laden batteries from the land fill.
Bottomline:
Buy it. I have purchased dozens of these with only one failure due to improper use.
