Worked well, as it should, for first few days then i had some issues with it. I thought it had gone haywire but it was likely doing what it was programmed to do...being a "smart" device and all! What happened was, the LCD was indicating a charging battery in the 4th slot, though no battery was there and i was unable to switch between li-ion, LiFePO4 or NiMh/Ni-Cad.
It was stuck on NiMh in that 4th empty slot! Nearly drove me bonkers. However, it went back to normal after a day or 2 and i should mention the other 3 slots worked fine the whole time of the incident, even charged a few batteries during. I was just about to send it back because of that issue but It is still going strong a week after getting it. I prob did something and it went into some kind safety mode or something.
Anyway, I believe it will be a good charger and i hope it lasts me years especially for the price but time will tell. I charge 18650, RCR123A, and NiMh AA so far i'm glad i bought it and i have high hopes as I, like many, have gone through a few chargers and charger chords in my day.
Pros:Looks good, lcd screen off mode while charging, has some safety features I like, its light, easy read LCD screen, pretty user friendly so far. i like being able to charge various types and sizes of batteries at the same time however there is a small con regarding that...
Cons:Regarding multiple battery charging, with 3 or 4 batteries in the charger you can ONLY charge in 375mAh mode and NOT 4x750 mAh. It not really that big of a deal. I checked and they mention that in the description 375mA X 4 / 750mA X 2, but i overlooked it and didn't see it before i purchased, another con its plastic id like something beefier, sturdier for this price
