LiitoKala lii – 100 CHARGER Who Likes 'em?

http://www.gearbest.com/chargers/pp_272183.html

 

Some of us got in on the above GearBest charger offering for $4.  Gotta admit, for that price and what it does sounds too good to be true.

 So, I'm a little skeptical about what we're gonna get.  Not too many reviews out there...soooo,

Any of you out there using one got anything to say about it?

That dose look like a lot of charger for such a low price. I agree it does sound too good to be true, but it’s tempting nonetheless.

Just ordered one.
After finally giving away my 5 year old 2-slot OEM charger I need something to replace it until I decide on any of analysing Nitecores/XTAR/Opus/etc.

I have been using this charger for about a month now. Price is really cheap for 1A fast charger with pretty good build quality. All my 5pcs that I have ordered works flawlessly out from the bag. Nicjoy's version does not come with usb cable though. I did order a few pieces of LiitoKala lii samples last week to try out, hopefully they are as good as Nicjoy. Time to say goodbye to Miller and XTAR MC1 Plus.

I have ordered one as well. I thought i had read that liitokala had done some good chargers before, so i hoped this one would be good as well.

The big differences with other chargers is that can handle NI-mh battery.
How it works with Ni-hm?

Do you think is better than other chargers in the price range of 10$?
Because 4$ for Li-On/Ni-mh/power bank/portable/fast etc etc it’s too good to be true

(I ask you because I’ve now a Nitecore Intellicharge I4 V.2, just want to buy another, not 2-3 Wink
So before this Liitokala 100 I was looking at XTAR VC2 Plus Master for around 17$ (so another price range) and Nitecore UM10 at 9,35$, but this do not work with Nihm…)
Thank you

I ordered one a few weeks ago, price was $4.39 then. Probably will come next month (unless this package goes detour to Africa or somewhere else).

If this is as good as it says, I don’t see anything else coming close under $10. Especially not those $3 ebay chargers – absolutely no point to play lottery with them at all anymore.

I was a bit skeptical when I saw the specs too. I went ahead and made my first order after reading all the positive feedback from the buyers.

Seriously, I do not know how they accomplished it at this price point. Both my Li-ION and Ni-MH charged fine without sign of over-charging. Li-ION terminates at 4.18V sharp for 2 different batteries. As for Ni-MH, it terminates about 1.45V (my memory is a bit faint on this one).

There bound to be design flaws if you scrutinize it. I am sure HJK will discover them sometime down the road. I am interested of how it fair with other under $10 chargers.

I am not a fussy person in charging. Sometime I am just to lazy to power up my OPUS or XTAR just to top up one 18650. That is why it is my favorite single bay at the moment.

Note: above comments are based on Nicjoy charger version.

ordered two, shipped within 48 hours. awaiting them and they really seem like a great charger. Thanks freeme for your experience with the charger, might even order another one as a gift Smile

The only issue for me would be the size – for a 1 bay charger it seems on the larger side. (as you can see on the image above)

the code increased my total by $2, from 24.11CAD to 26.11 CAD. I wonder if its because i am not using USD.

every time I put in a code, the price goes up and a message that the ‘offer has expired’ pops up. lol.

I have to admit, I didn’t want to buy from GearBest but for a the price I can’t resist.
I did add $1.52 for “America Direct Express”

I used the code and it came to $4.04!

I am getting mad because this is the fourth time I had problems with gb

First time I ordered a flash deal item.. after a month.. never got shipped(too good to be true). had to cancel

Second time… ordered a normal item… Shipped after 2 weeks but never received. had to open paypal case

Third time.. similar than the second

Now… I am stupid. after my previous problems and a lot of bad comments and similar problems with them… I purchased again from them…. I dont know why..

hope this time they will ship and I will receive the items..
