The charger should be a 5v 1a, less and it will take ages to charge, if at all.
There is a pass through function, see if it'll fire while on charge. I don't recommend using it while charging normally but for a test I'll let it slide.
The charger I'm using is 9.0V  1.67A
Don't tell them that when you send it back (because the battery has been overcharged) Wink

Inside is a hard wired li-on 18650 cell, 4.2v max. The charging curcuit is 1100mah max. If your output figures are right then that'll be the reason it's not working.. should try and charge 5v 1a normal USB figures, it might be clever enough to know. Check and clean the 510 too

Yeah a laptop should do it. I've not seen an 18650 that's happy with a 2a charge.
