    Bought a $10.00 MS style charger off of Ebay today...

    Did I make a horrible mistake?
    All three of the ones that came with my lights no longer work, so I had to do something. Are there 'better' and 'worse' plug and play chargers to know about?

    Honestly it is probably about the same as your other chargers. Due to the constantly changing nature of Chinese lights and accessories, whats good today from a given seller may not be so good next week.

    Not plug and play, but IMO a hobby charger is a better solution at only about 3X the cost of the charger you ordered. Power it with the supply from an old laptop. Buy that at Goodwill for a few bucks.

    Yep, get an R/C car charger and make your own charge lead.

    That's too bad. For $7.95 you could have bought a real Magicshine charger. The MJ-6012.
    Magicshine has been selling this version charger for several years and we have almost zero problems with it. If there is a problem in the first year we can give you an immediate warranty replacement.
    If the cheap batteries that came with your light give out we also have Magicshine 4400mAh batteries for only $29.95. MJ-6038 Made by BAK, the largest manufacturer of Li-ion cells in the world.

    Thanks!
