Will this charge other mods besides ego-brand mods?
I tried researching online to find an answer to this, but I couldn't get a clear idea if this would work or not.

1) Do these work with Ego-brand mods only, or with anything with Ego cone (510) threading?
2) Can they be used on mechanical mods (e.g. nemesis) or vv/vw mods (e.g. Itaste SVD, Vamo V5, Smoketech SID)? Can I use this instead of buying a separate charger?
3) If yes, then are there any limitations/ restrictions to doing so (e.g. certain batteries only, incomplete charge)?
4) If these are Ego only, is a usb passthrough like this SKU 1353300 also the same?
5) Is this adapter capable of both output and input? (i.e. Can you use this to charge your battery and use it to charge external devices with your battery?)

+4 details
1) I use them for the EVOD kits and the no name 1300mah batteries from here no problems

2) I don't think so. I've just pulled one apart to check the circuit and it appears to be a voltage regulator only with no charging circuit. Hard to be 100% sure as the IC is not labelled. Lack of current set resistors tells me it is definitely not a TP 4056 which is the most common chip used. It's a good idea though and you could easily rig once up for mechanicals using the TP4056 module sold here with a 510 connector on the end. SKU 1585501. Definately not for VV/VW mods.

3) As above

4) Nope. Those pass through have an adjustable voltage regulator for the output, no charging circuit

5) No.
