Possible FP3 universal battery charger?

Am loving my new FP3+.

I would like to be able to charge my spare battery separately from the phone itself. I have found a universal charger that looks as though it could, physically, work: the pins seem to be adjustable and the pins are, in fact, blades, that should fit into the narror contact slots on the FP3 battery.

The charger is here:

I note the output voltage is 8.4V - 16.8 V, and the output current is 500-800 mA.

Question: Does anyone know if this would, in fact, work?

That I don’t know. But I do know a charger which works …

I guess, you should go for the optiong @AnotherElk has pointed to.

The charger you have linked to, says to be loading batteries with a voltage from 6.8 to 16.8. Since the Fairphone batterie has 3.8 only, I wouldn’t consider using this charger.

The batteries it is meant for (according to the product description) are ones for JVC cam-corders with 7.4V.

Thank you; yes - I suspected that voltage might be too high.

Got the Bilora LCD Li-Ion charger from eBay! I confirm: it works perfectly. Thank you!!! :smiley: :yum: :star_struck: :star_struck:
