I missed (or have forgotten) whatever happened there. If you have a link, I’d love to read it!
Nah man. Your doing just fine! Didn’t sense any tone at all.
Text is a bear sometimes. I also wasn’t trying pointed with you in particular when I said “why would you think they would do different with another product?” (paraphrased) but just trying to get the point across that there’s a huge difference between the occasional “oops! We had a design flaw on this one!” to the “What’s the max it can do?.. OK, put that on the label if you think it will help sell more!”
Kind of like the old cheap car stereo amps that were rampant in the 90’s. That “240 watt” amp in reality only put out 30 watts (even though it was 30w into 4 channels, since power is not cumulative, it’s still only a 30w amp). But nooo, let’s say each channel would deliver 60w for 1 second @20% distortion before the channel blew up. Well, 60x4=240w! Slap a sticker on it! and SELL, SELL, SELL!!!
Anyways. It’s a burr in my particular bonnet because I hate to see folks get ripped off. And in this case/application, potentially putting their safety at risk. So I can come off a bit harsh, or outspoken to some (OK, even downright loudmouth once in awhile lol) but it’s because of what I’ve seen, and views that have been formed/shaped as a bench tech, as well as a consumer.
So take it with a grain, or for whatever it’s worth, depending on the relative situation. But I always try to speak more to the facts (as I see/know/understand them) than the person or their choice(s).
Personally, I think the best brand of charger out there, both for the money, and safety, is Opus.
