    Minding Your mAhs Ep33 – Golisi S4 charger safety defect recall – Where is Golisi?, has been uploaded to my Battery Mooch YouTube channel.

    On April 17th, 2020, the Golisi S4 charger was recalled in the European Union (EU) for having two serious safety defects. As of May 14th Golisi has said nothing about this!

    *SIGH*

    The S6 is not under recall but still makes me wonder; a pity, I truly love my S6, I've tried all the cheap-side chargers and it beats them all hands down

    I got it based on your opinion - and I have loved it more than any I've tried so far

    I am safe still using a Trustfire TR-001 charger for over 4.5 years now.
    All magic smoke is still contained in unit.
    Have another identical one as backup just in case.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, and you still have your first allowance of 5 cents buried in your backyard :giggle:

    (Just pulling my best buddy's chain here folks)

    Some of us like seeing a little of what's going on with the charging and have options for how fast/slowly we charge and the ability to charge more than 2 at a time

    I have had to move that 5c to 10 different back yards over the years.

    My philosophy. the simpler something is the less parts to fail.

    BTW I used to also use an intellicharger 2 bay charger as well. It went bad.
    I ripped out the workings and put in 2 protected single cell charger modules and set it up to run from 12-15 volts so as to have a car charger. For under $5 in parts.

    Yeah, those are lacking in the "intelli" part

    imho the 2 main things to prolonging charger life.
    1. if mains driven use a good surge suppressor.
    2. never let the neg end of the slide just snap back up.
