Quick update on Efest Soda charger
Just thought I'd let you guys know that the Efest Soda charger is doing a much better job than my cheap Chinese charger.

I've set it to charge the cells at 0.5 amps and every single cell I've charged is lasting longer and hitting harder - perhaps it's better to charge them at a normal rate instead of fast charging ?

Both my Sony Vtc3's and my Samsung 22P's are kicking butt far more than they were before. I don't think it's my imagination Tongue


Big thanks to Graham (gords1001) for a great gift that is being used religiously now Big Grin

Could be its terminating at a better voltage. Hkj gave it a good review, I had a look this morning.

Speed charging is rarely a good thing.  Gets you running quicker but never lasts as long and reduces the charge cycle life of the cells.  Great gift, Gords! Big_boss

The faster you charge the shorter the battery life will be over time. Guess it come down to what works best for you
