Hi folks! It's me again with another one of those "hypothetical" queries. If you've been in the flashlight game for a while, you've discovered lithium batteries and the benefits it provides. Both flashlight and battery technology has advanced by leaps and bounds yet chargers have pretty much stayed the same. Sure, we now have a universal charger that can do NiMH as well but that's about it.
How would you feel if there was a charger that...
Has a form factor of the UltraFire WF-188 (or bit larger)
Charge 16340 to 18700 size 3.7v Li-ion (EDIT REMOVED 10440)
Charge rate 0.5A / 1.0A
2 independent banks
LCD voltage readout
Is this something folks are interested in? The ballpark for this will certainly be more than the Pila, but probably than the Maha 9000 (yes, apples to oranges here).
Is there any MUST have? I can think of possibly 26650 support (will make charger bigger) or USB out (nice, but not necessary). NiMH is also nice but there are better full featured chargers for those. Discharging and capacity checking would make it much, much more complex and the price accordingly. Storage charging feature is something I feel MIGHT be of use.
