    I just recently got a vamo and went with a Trustfire Tr-001 charger.I am charging 18650 and 18350 batteries at 3.7v and the side switch has a 3.0v and a 3.6 setting.I assume that the 3.6 is what I need, and do all these chargers have that option??

    Hi Steve,
    I have two TR-001s and neither of them have that option. They don't have any switches on the sides. I bought them from two different places as well.
    Are you sure its a TR-001 and not a different model?

    Yes set it to 3.6 for your IMR and protected li-ion batts.

    Yes, use 3.6. It sounds like you have the TR-006 multi charger.

    That is weird, because they don't have a switch. Is it black or white?

    I don't know Steve. My guess is its for people with lower volt batteries so they can use the 3.0 volt setting.

    From what I've read the charging voltage is 4.0 volts on the - what do we call them? - standard TR-001s.
    I'll do a bit of checking.

    The ones without the switch should charge it to 4.2 and switching it to 3.6 should do the same. You can check it with your VAMO when it's fully charged and it should say 4.1 or 4.2.

    Output on the TR-001s is 4.2 volts, but some have measured it at 4.05 volts.

    Yes, mine would charge the batts to 4.18 volts consistently. I only use them with the 18350s now, because I use an Xstar for the 18650s.

    Ah - then the switch is probably not output voltage, but a guide to the voltage of the battery being charged.
