@ddistrbd1 I would NOT buy that product. Something doesn't look right to me, and some of the wording is not relevant or misleading.

Look closely at their charge curve depiction, look at my actual and look it up online. Online look for at least 5 sources before deciding the correct depiction and then compare them to mine and the Ali charger. If you can't read mine, just ask, and I will tell you. The absorb time is 2 hrs 2 minutes, remember how we told the charger to do an absorb cycle of 20 mins per battery and I have 6 batteries. I just found there supposed curve on the internet, here it is.

@ddistrbd1 Probably the best resource for anything battery related is Battery University. The section on charging Lithium starts at BU- 409 read it and be enlightened. Don't miss the simple guidelines at the end. Now that my secret resource is known, I don't need to answer any more battery related questions, right????
