simple and good charger – Digital Li-Ion 18650 Battery Charger Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Good build quality. Doesn't overheat while charging. Uses an IC for AC/DC internal power supply. Cheap price. Large 18650 battery holder lets you insert protected cells as well.
Cons:
No EMI filter and no fuse in 220V circuit. A little bit high output voltage without batteries connected, I have measured about 4.45V DC. The charge current depends on discharged battery voltage.
Other:
This charger has no timer protection and no overcharge protection. It doesn't shutdown when battery is fully charged. You have to disconnect it yourself.
Bottomline:
For its price charger is really good. It isn't a digital one, though.
