Good charger in shoddy casing – Battery AC Charger for 2*14500 (100~240V/US Plug) Reviews

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

Pros:
*The solderings and electric components are of good quality *Charges two 14500 batteries in a few hours *Indicator LED with three modes
Cons:
*Low quality, thin plastic casing *Several rather large holes into the charger gives a low quality impression *I feel that it could've been a bit cheaper
Other:
It feels shoddy but when I opened it I was pleasantly surprised to see proper solderings and all in all what seems like a simple but sensible design. Worth noting is that it does not have two separate chargers. If you insert two batteries, they're simply connected in parallell. I'm not charging expert so I'm not sure how this affects battery health and if it is potentially dangerous. If the two batteries are not fully discharged I'd rather charge them separately (yes, you can charge only one battery).
Bottomline:
It's good for charging this specific type of battery and from the looks of it, seems like a rather reliable product.
