To consolidate all the chargers to a single power supply & replace another broken 1S charger, the 15 year old Celectra was modified to take 20V. Technically, it can go to 25V, but the laptop power supply only provides 18V & it gets hotter as the voltage rises. The only change was replacing a 16V cap with a 25V. The Celectra is junk by today's standards, but it was all a lion needed from 2006-2015 when the Accucell 8150 was brought up.

The key ingredient is Polydimethylsiloxane.
