    I hope my charger works. I trust batteryjunction to sell quality items. If i was a retailor owner i would never sell junk.

    That's the thing with Ultrafire . . . Sometimes you get lucky as Hell. But it's not worth the gamble. Imagine if one of the guests at the insane asylum got your keys and unlocked her cell door right in front of you. She might try to run, she might try to gouge out your eyes, she might just stand there looking up at the ceiling, or she might smile and give you a hug cause she thinks she's a little girl and thinks you're her daddy.

    And, with Ultrafire, even if it works perfectly fine now. That's no guarantee it's not going to act up down the road. That's why it's best to stay on the safe side and keep ALL the guests locked up.
    I trust lighthound not to sell junk if i was to own a business id never sell junk and a lithium charger is very serious business. I hope my charger does as its suppose to as it is advertised doing. I should just keep and eye on it while its charging. Once its green ill take it off so i dont have to worry about overcharging.

    When I first started in high power LED flashlight, without any backup knowledge/information, I ordered from HK eBay seller, some UltraFire, WF139 charger & batteries, 6 Red 3Ah & 4 Blue 2.6Ah, after that I joined CPF, one of the flashaholic told me the blue one is a fake, but my 6 Reds wouldn't charge anymore (not heavy usage), I tried with hobby charger, still no luck. After removed the protection pcb, 4 of them works (re-wrapped & put in a 4x18650 mobile USB power box), two went to recycle. While all the blue UltraFire working normally with the protection pcb till now.

    After awhile, I got a Soshine S1 mix-II charger, after Green led lit, I immediately measure with DMM, voltage ranging from 4.16 to 4.18, cells were barely warm, while WF139 cells were warm to the touch, I don't know which is a better charger, but my basic instinct told me not to use WF139...

    Onto my UltraFire flashlights, I have got

    WF-501A, WF-600L & RL-2088 (works fine, submerged in water basin, water gets in )
    U4-MCU (clicky switch worn, no replacement)

    Maybe I'm unlucky with UltraFire, but my other Tank007, Romisen & Fenix all water resists as they should be

    It comes in the mail Monday. So many mixed reviews and variances on the WF139.
    I do have hobby charger for my RC stuff lying around.

    That's my exact charger. I can charge lithium cells with this? How do you guys go about that?

    No, not unlucky. Ultrafire is the only China-based brand that can't even make a decent SureFire 6P clone.

    You mean lithium primaries? Don't even try it. There is no way to charge primaries on this, or any charger. I still recall a thread made by a new member a couple of years back in which his charger nearly caught on fire. He was unsure why he couldn't charge up the generic rechargeable RCR123 cells he had recently bought. He even provided a link to the site and sales page for the generic cells. I took a look, and discovered that they were not generic rechargeable cells. They were actually generic primary cells. And he was fortunate not to have burned down his house.

    I must hope that my WF-139 is a good one. I also bought it to charge other batteries like the 18650 etc... dunno why a reputable retailor would sell it if the charger QC varies so much. What if a newbies buys it and don't know better? I guess it falls into we are responsible for what we buy... oh well.

    Thanks for the heads up guys, this is a very serious heads up you guys gave me.
    Much appreciated.

    Lol ! No more UltraFire for me ~
    Meanwhile, those Blue 2.6Ah UltraFire still serve me good in my TK35 & RL-2088 / WF-800L use on clear night & indoor respectively

    Waiting to take delivery of a Jetbeam RRT-3 XML with three free 18650 batteries. Was able to take advantage of some of the sales going on too so am happy about the deal. I have wanted a triple XML light for some time that is not too big or too small that can really put up a wall of light at close to medium distances.

    Nothing too exciting at the moment.

    Just a Solarforce Masterpiece Pro 1 turbohead which I intend to put on a spare Moddoo 2x18650 tube I have laying around. I need a dedicated thrower with decent runtime. OK, I want it...lol.

    I ordered the Surefire Fury this morning. I thought I was done buying stuff for a while after receiving my HDS 200T several months ago. But I'm a surefire junkie and couldn't resist this one; 500 lumens for that price in that form factor was too much to resist.

    I recently turned down an insane, amazing deal on a NIB 400 lumen M3LT. Somehow my frugality has been rewarded with the release of this much more compact 500 lumen offering. Fingers crossed for a great product.
