    Reuleaux RX200 internal charging! Testing, analysis and ramblings :)

    Great post on Reddit regarding the RX200.... I have read a lot of stories about different issues, this should hopefully clear things up and dispel a few rumours

    https://www.reddit.com/r/electronic_...ting_analysis/

    TL;DR Charging batteries in your RX200 via USB is safe but potentially doesn't give you good battery life. External charger is better.

    Excellent work and many thanks to the author and tester VapeyMcGyver!

    ...and just to reiterate what VapeyMcGyver is saying: the issue is that the internal charger is unable to balance the charge in the batteries, but safety is maintained because it stops charging when the strongest cell gets to 4.2V, and stops discharging when the weakest cell gets to 3.2V.

    Internal charging is convenient for occasion use, but maybe shouldn't be the recommended method.
