    ^^^^ What he said ... but , I will throw in the BUT lol
    TR-001 chargers can be a bit hit and miss IMO ... check the charging with a multimeter and take a note of the cut-off point ... closer to 4.15-4.2V the betterer!
    Feel for heat , it should never get more than just barely warm to the touch . Either the unit OR the battery.

    I just dont trrust them as much as I would other chargers ( like Soshines etc) ... have had more than one TR crapout on me or those around me over the years

    the TR-001 is a charger I personally would never leave to charge unattended ( that's just me tho )

    fully recommend this. Has not skipped a beat yet. And charges super fast. Only takes 18500-18650 batteries though. I use an aluminium battery extension for my 18350s and it is fully charged from 3.5v - 4.2v in 15mins.

    Others to add to the list ... again fromSupersports600's ebay shop
    Soshine 18650 AU S1 MIX III V3 18650 RCR123 Charger FOR Lithium ION Battery | eBay The mix has the ability to charge a bigger range of sizes ... have had this model for over a year and its faultless

    This next one is a new one to SS600 and I am gonna pick one up very soon I think looks even more versatile it will also do LiFePO4 cells

    Super quick postage and great service ALWAYS from SS.... Hes the ONLY battery Guy I go to these days , unless I am looking for a size he doesnt carry ... and if he doesnt carry it ,its usually because its not a battery that meets his demanding standards ... yes this sounds like an ad for him LOL , but IMO he is the best seller of batteries in Australia , for quality , service and value.
