I've never reviewed a battery charger here since starting this website almost twelve years ago, so please bear with me here.

Q: What do you think of when you hear the term "Lithium Ion"?

A: If you're like most people, you probably think of those fragile rechargeable batteries that blow up on you when you try to recharge them or short them out.

This charger is specifically designed to be used with Li:ION cells; however, according to its web page on the Alibaba website, it can also be used with Ni-MH and even NiCd (nickel-cadmium) rechargeable cells as well.

The unit can charge all types of Li:ION cells, such as RCR123A, 14500, 18340, 18650, and other sizes of cells.


Insert the cell(s) to be charged into the cradles for them; do this by placing the cell's negative (-) flat-end onto the moveable contact, and (using the cell itself) push it back toward the rear of the charger until the cell fits into the cradle for it.

In the center of the charger, there is a slide switch to select charge voltage; set it toward the 3.6 volt position for most Li:ION cells, most Ni:MH and NiCd cells; only set it to the 4.2 volt position if the cell indicates its voltage as 4.2 volts.

Plug the cord into a standard (in north America anyway) 110-120VAC wall receptacle; this charger may be used outside the US where household voltage is 220 volts or even 240 volts AC although you will need to procure a plug adapter to fit the AC receptacles in your country.

The unit also comes with a male cigerette lighter plug; the small end of its cord plugs into a small female receptacle on the side of the charger; input voltage when used in this manner is +12 volts to +24 volts, so it can be used in standard consumer automobiles as well as larger commercial trucks ("big rigs") that have a +24 volt electrical system.

When it is connected to outside power (either via household AC or vehicle DC), a red light on the charging cradle should then come on and let you know the battery is being charged. After approximately three hours (assuming the batteries were fully discharged), the red light on the charging cradle should turn green. You can then unplug the charging cradle, remove the battery, and install it in whatever they came out of or charge another one or two cells if necessary.

This is a battery charger, not a flashlight. So I won't try to flush it, run over them with a 450lb electric wheelchair, slam it into a concrete block, let the cat go to the bathroom on it, or perform any other indecency on it that a flashlight might have to go through.

Charge current is stated as 800mA (0.80 amp).
