- Blade Count:
Once I measured the charged batteries with a professional multi-meter, it became apparent that the charger is working flawlessly. Charges every cell to exactly 4.20V in balance mode. The only thing that may not work quite right is the mAh limit for shutting off the charger, but I'm using a timer for safety shutoff anyway.
I just bought two of these, primarily for the AC function, to charge inside the house in the kitchen or game room while I watch TV. I have only used one to charge Life, Lipo and Nimh batteries. Seems to work very well. I also purchased two Life transmitter batteries for my Futaba 14 channel radio. It had them quickly charged/balanced so I could start programming my new radio. I always balance charge my Li batteries, rather than fast charge, just seems so much safer all around. I almost did not purchase due to the bad critiques, but decided to buy two just in case I got a bad one. Luckily both work great, with no issues and still allot cheaper then the original. I'll update if anything changes, or after a few more months of use. Happy Landings, Rusty Nuts, SA, Texas.
