In general such things are OKish but slow. The Olight one is probably the best of them.

Great information Don - I was thinking of the convenience of such a compact charger option for short travel (overnight trips) or to keep in the laptop bag for emergencies. I guess it could be practical but I'd have to carry two of them....

It'd be a pita for me. It'd have metal swarf stuck to it and be latching on to everything I pass.. you'd see me melting it down before longĀ Negative

I hear that , around me it would have the fortune of a usb cord and be walking the green mile .

Burbon comes from Kentucky , scotch comes from Scotland . Others deserve no bottle .

If you are carrying a phone charger then one of the USB powered chargers might suit. The two I have are the Folomov key charger and the LiitoKala Lii-100 (I have three of these which cost me around ten bucks for the three in a sale). That and a suitable AC powered multi-USB output device and you can charge as many cells as needed together. Or there is the LiitoKala Lii-202 which can charge two cells simultaneously. Again USB powered and probably very cheap. There's a review here.

RE: different kind of charger...
In hindsight, the Folomov (bought with my own money and I never got the promised refund of the purchase price for writing a positive review) beats the Olight one. The Folomov won't overcharge your cells. The other side of that is it won't fully charge them either. The difference is about ten draws at 30W.

The LiitoKala is a third of the price and probably more durable. But bigger, heavier (By at least a quarter of an ounce) and generally different. It won't do 2A charging. Whether that is an advantage or disadvantage is up to you.
