One worked, the other not so much,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I previously reviewed this product 4 of 5 stars because it worked well after I removed one of the center pins to trick it to charge slower. This allowed it to charge my smart phone about half way on 2 rechargeable Eneloop batteries. I gave that one to a friend and bought another one. This time after removing a pin it got hotter than before and would charge a bit some of the time, but most of the time it would just get hot and my phone would not charge and eventually the charging light would flash. I've never seen my charging light flash before this. I never tried the 2nd one before removing the pin. The switch on the 2nd one I bought had a textured surface which makes me think it's a different design. Anyway the one that worked was bought October 2011 from seller ACC Stop. The one that didn't work was bought September 2012 from seller Tidbits and Pieces.
