Great little charger – Digital CR123A Battery AC Charger Reviews

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

Pros:
Nice, fast charger. Charges a pair of Ultrafire RCR123's (sku 3273) in just over an hour. Cutoff voltage on mine is consistently 4.22v so they're getting a full charge. Very compact with no extra cords to lug around. AC plug stows nicely in the back of the charger.
Cons:
Protected cells are VERY tight in this charger and difficult to squeeze in since they're longer than non-protected cells. I remedied this by milling the plastic lip near the + end of the charger to clear the positive battery terminal and allow for easier insertion and extraction.
Other:
Will buy another as a spare. Since it charges so quickly I doubt that I'll ever need to use both of them at the same time though.
Bottomline:
Very happy with this charger.
