    Default Charger that will work well for AW IMR 18650

    Ok gang I'm having a little trouble on figuring out which battery charger I should use with AW IMR high drain 18650.

    Specific charger models would help.

    Than you,

    Any 3.7 volt lithium battery charger that will take an 18650 size battery will work fine:

    Pila charger, Ultrafire WF-188, Trustfire TR-001, etc

    I have the WF-188 and I used it at 3.7v, 300ma instead of 650ma and it didn't hold. It went on the charger for about 5 hrs then turned green. It stayed powered up for about 10 minutes on a AW IMR high drain 18650. Tried it again and it was on for 5hrs again and its working so far. Just wanting a better charger

    What does IMR stand for? My other mods either used protected 18650 or Life PO

    That switch just sets the charge rate, I don't know if charging a large battery at a slower rate would affect anything. Sounds like you either have a bad batt or a bad charger to me. I've used that one in the past, but currently am using the TR-001, both are good chargers for cheap (actually regretting getting rid of the WF-188 since I've started using the 3V batteries again, so now I'm back to having two different chargers)

    That Sysmax charger should work fine, but for the price I personally wouldn't go for it unless I was in need of a charger for those other battery types it supports, as well. Can't speak to its quality since I've never used it

    I only use IMRs and theTR001 works great for me right now, I even bought the cheapie car adapter for it when I am out and about or power goes out. I am saving up my nickles for a Pila though.
