Pros:
I have two of these chargers. I have a number of flashlights and both 18650 and 16340 batteries. This charger has two independent charging channels unlike oher li-ion chargers thst charge two batteries in parallel. it seems to stop charging once a battery is fully charged (4.17v) rather than continuing to trickle charge like cheaper chargers, this is a good safty feature. The pull up connections for 14360 cells are easy to use and make the charger very versitile.
Cons:
a bit slow charging large cells. More expensive than some other chargers.
Other:
Would be nice to have to option of a UK adapter. Spiderfire do one with a UK adapter but is is more expensive.
Bottomline:
It is well worth paying the little bit extra for this charger.
