iEGrow USB Charging station with LCD-display

This charging station holds all common battery types - including the CR16340, which traplinked uses. But be careful: The power supply is only via a micro USB cable, as is also used for charging numerous smartphone models. Although this enables convenient charging in the car, from power banks and PCs, it always requires the right cable.
A self-illuminating LC-display shows voltage, battery level and charging time. However, the device does not have a test mode. The charger switches off after charging.

Our opinion: This charger is perfect to be left in the car and always have two freshly charged batteries ready. The workmanship is solid, the display on the display is easy to read. We welcome the detailed labeling. The batteries are clamped fairly securely and can withstand a few vibrations before falling out of the holder.
