Welcome to a new InTheMail, the series that will touch both your passion for electronics and your bank account at the same time. We have a selection of different items in this mailbag video and before we get started I would like to mention that packages started flowing in around 1st of May and things are moving, certainly not as before but there is some movement at least and I hope you guys are benefiting from the same improvement where you are located.
I’m gonna start with this multi-functional charger from LiitoKala, it’s model number Lii-402 and I actually have another one of their chargers but it’s the model with an LCD. I’ve been using that one for the past few years, it’s been working great but I needed a second one to increase the number of cells I can charge at the same time. I picked a simpler model this time, with just some LED indicators, it’s good enough for me, I mostly just plug in the cells and let them sit in there for a few hours before I return and take them out so I don’t usually check the information on that screen anyway.
This model takes a micro usb input 5V 2A so those 10W can then be distributed as mentioned on the packaging, 0.5A times 4 or something in between if you charge less cells at the same time. It can charge Ni-MH, Li-ion, Li-Fe and the battery slots are universal, they can hold a bunch of different types of cells so it’s a pretty useful charger to have. I got this one from banggood because it was in the EU warehouse but you can probably get it cheaper if you are willing to wait 1-2 months for delivery from China.
