This charger properly fits and recharges the 95656 Lithium ION battery pack for the EV3. I dinged one star because it came in a soft-pack pouch delivered via USPS (even with Amazon Prime) and the box was crushed. The unit was in the original box and labelled new.

This is essential if you want to use the 8878 Power Functions Rechargeable Battery Box. I can understand why 8878 doesn't come with a charger - you might want to buy multiple battery boxes but don't want another charger every time (indeed, I have three batteries but only one charger). But this is outrageously expensive. Five for Play Experience and recommended, simply because it lets you use 8878 - which is much more convenient than the 88000 AAA Battery Box. One for Value for Money because of the very high price.
