Default Universal Chargers

I was kind of reluctant to create a new thread for this, but I searched for a while and couldnt really find a solid answer.

I'm looking to get a charger for CR123's but then wondered if a universal charger would be a better investment.

Are these any good/ will they work well with any Li+ battery without damaging them?

DealExtreme: $13.90 UltraFire WF-139 3.7V 14500/17500/18500/17670/18650 Battery Charger (AC 100~220V/DC 12V)

DealExtreme: $8.81 TrustFire All-in-One Charger (for 10430/10440/14500/16340 /17670/18650/CR123A)

It says it charges all the diff types at 3.6v..is that the standard?
Excuse the excess of questions.

I have DealExtreme: $8.81 TrustFire All-in-One Charger (for 10430/10440/14500/16340 /17670/18650/CR123A)
If your planing on getting more then a few lasers. You will appreciate the universal charger. As of now I have lasers that take cr2,cr123, 18650 cells.
Now I have just one charger and don't have to go digging for 3 different chargers.

heh I've just been searching for advise too.
Got some crap DSD charger that doesn't seem to work any more, and I need to charge up some 18650 and RCR123a cells so I can get accurate readings on my brand new Kenometer

I'll get that Trustfire one too. Thanks

I highly advise against getting the TrustFire all in one charger.
