Have used them myself and they are pretty nice for money (feels cheap and a bit dangerous). Charges Ni-Mh to 1,4V and Li-Ions to 4,16. Haven't tried to leave cells into charger, so i can't comment if it really turns charging off.


Ontopic:

I'm defenetly interested of quality all-in-one charger to replace my seperate Ni-Mh and Li-ion chargers. Hopefully we are able to get it cheaper at hkequipment but even 28 euros is pretty good price if it turns out to be a good charger.

But still, I've seen something good. HKJ bought the charger. So he should receive it pretty fast since DK and DE are neighbors.  

 

Yes, I have put in a order for it and it will probably be here in about a week, then I need to do a lot of charge curves to test it. This means that the earliest time I can have any review ready will be in two weeks, but that is probably to optimistic (I might need to do some flashlight reviews before I can do the charger test).

I.e. I will probably not be the first to review it, but I might be able to answer some questions about it in a little more than one week, when I have done the first charge curve.

No prob, take your time Wink Those charging curves are very informative and useful (at least for me) Smile can tell many things about charger Wink Perhaps you will not be the first one, but I'm sure you'll be the first one with those charging curves.

Wow this is sure going to be a must have.........looks robust and should last a long time, hope they did not skimp on the plastic, and the spring on the terminals just dont pop off.

It looks like my future charger Surprised


Are there any pictures available showing C or 26650 batteries on it?

It states on the back label it charges them, but I am not 100% they will fit in diameter, it looks like they might collide with the side walls that sepparate the channels.

I wonder the same.

This seems a perfect charger for those who don't have a hobby charger, or don't have chargers at all.

Waiting for the reviews.

Apparently this is sold only by German shops. There are about 6-7 which sell this charger.

I think I will wait till prices settle down and more shops have it available, and only in case I can see it finally can charge 26650/C with room enough and not using magnets, aligator clips etc.

Probably in two weeks it will also be available in the USA. Then more people will talk about about it.

The only thing I don't understand is why they didn't make it 18700 compatible? :~ Make it 3 mm longer. Flat Stare

Hey guys stop, let the people review it first. There isn't anywhere written that it won't accept 18700.

I understand, but neither this says that http://www.dealextreme.com/p/trustfire-tr-001-multi-purpose-lithium-batt...

nor this http://www.manafont.com/product_info.php/trustfire-multifunction-liion-b...

 

This 18700 has been pushed by Xtar, right on this forum, most of the companies will not recognize that as a standard.

Anyway, I also think that 18700 might have problems with this Jetbeam charger i4, but someone has to review it first.

It does not really matter if the 18700 is missing, a 18650 cell can be up to about 70 mm long when protection is mounted. As far as I know only Xtar has ever marked a cell 18700.

Thats true, guyz Wink Hope I'm wrong again, but if you check those pics with 18650, you will see that there are almost no free space. Again, hope I'm wrong and it fits 18700 w/o problems. It's on my wish list, really nice charger Big Smile
