Has anyone seen or tried this banggood charger? SKU247512

This is really cute and I wondered if it works well. Banggood sku = SKU247512

If I’m not mistaken that’s a pretty new charger. I mean that they only carry it since a few days.
I too like the design, one ‘problem’ I see however is that it’s completely round so not that easy to put on the table steadily.
For the people that don’t want to look up the SKU, we’re talking about this single bay charger: http://www.banggood.com/5V-1A-Li-ion-Micro-USB-Charger-Mini-Battery-Charger-For-18650-p-984061.html

I did not want to get yelled at for posting a link where I should not have.

I am going to have to try that!

I never trust an unknown charger. Just get an Xtar Mc1 for about the same price

Just found out that Gearbest also has this charger, for $3.99 instead of $4.99 at Banggood.

They claim that this charger uses a ‘4057 power supply chip’.
The charger can not be used as a power bank though.

And like it. Just is not smooth and round. But, my few batteries are worth more to me than that charger…

I am in need of a few more 18650’s, they are kinda pricey to keep around. I would like to pick up a few of the more generic ones, but really do not know who sells junk verses ok batteries. I use mainly protected batteries, in case my kids get ahold of a light. I do have a couple of unprotected that go in my lights and I am getting ready to build a new C8 that will be a current hog so I will keep my couple of good keeppowers for it. I have a charger, actually 2 the Xtar MC1 and the Nightcore I2, so I do not have to have batteries with tons of capacity since my life does not depend on my light… they are mainly EDC at work and in my desk at home for power failures and such.

Thanks Matt

Good deals on batteries from kicken. It’s hard to see in the picture, but I think the sanyos are protected
