Cheap and Small! – Digital CR123A Battery AC Charger Reviews

posted by warlord on 04/19/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
-Handy built in plug makes it very portable and easy to travel with. -Small size makes it very portable. -Well constructed, was hard to open...

-Cheap enough to give away with rechargables and flashlights :D
Cons:
-Very tight with protected cells, had to mod it to fix this
Other:
In order to make this compatable with protected cells I took apart the unit and filed a small notch out of the plastic on (+) contact side. I also sanded down the (+)contacts a bit. This allowed the cells to be easily insertd and to be removed by tilting them out (+) side first. I also had to epoxy the contacts in place so that they wouldn't be pushed out of place when inserting protected cells.
Bottomline:
Very good price and portable. Does a good job charging my protected batteries but if you don't feel like modding it maybe you should spend a little more on a more flexible charger.
