Great battery charger! – UltraFire WF-188 Rapid Charger for 3.2V/3.7V Lithium Batteries (100~240V) Reviews

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

Pros:
-Great value battery charger for this price.
-This charger will charge just about any rechargeable lithium battery you can fit in it if you know how to properly use it.
-Has the ability to switch between 3.2v and 3.7v by a switch on the side.
-Has the ability to switch between mA ratings by a switch on the side.
-The charging cable is detachable for easy transport and storage.
Cons:
-Like most lower cost items from china the English manual is not very clear. It's very easy to misinterpret what the instructions are.
-The plastic on the battery charging unit feels cheap and of low quality.
-The switches on the side of the unit feel flimsy and not well secured.
-The spring loaded locking arms are not well constructed and the pointed tips can sometimes impress a small dimple on the batteries.
Other:
Bottomline:
Overall I would recommend this charger. For the cost of the unit and the vast array of batteries your able to charge with it the deal is worth it. Just use caution when loading batteries onto it. Also if you don't fully understand the instructions and what settings to use I suggest finding help online before simply guessing as it's possible to explode certain batteries under the wrong settings.
