My first "real" cell charger was a Nitecore D4. Nitecore came close to replacing it a while back with the SC4, but they've certainly done it with these new two chargers - the USM2 and USM4. These chargers (most importantly?) fit 21700 cells, among other awesome features. Read on!
XTAR makes some great products, and have a massive line of chargers. Here are two new chargers, the D2 and D4. Very similar chargers, except one's a 2-bay, and one's a 4-bay. I think they could make great basic fast chargers, but I'm glad to test them to find out!
GearBest has been sending out these VC4 chargers lately, an I was on the receiving end. I'm pleased with that, since I typically like XTAR goods. This charger isn't new, and is quite simple, so could be a good standard. Read on to see how it tests!
I'd asked over and over for the Q4 charger from Nitecore, but it just never happened. Then they went and upped the bays by 2, and made the Q6! I'm happy to have one of those in for review! Thanks Nitecore!
Along with the XTAR PB2 I recently reviewed, XTAR sent the Dragon VP4 Plus 4 bay 2A charger. This is an interesting charger, with some unusual features, and I'm glad to give it a test, too!
I've been getting more Lumintop lights lately and that's something I'm pleased with! They make high quality lights, and fit some nice categories. This is the ODL20C, a 26650 thrower, with built in charging! Read on!
Liitokala is known for nice products which tend to be reasonably priced. This is their latest offering, an update to the Lii-100. This is the Lii-S1, which has a digital display, and the option to work no matter the orientation of the cell. A novel feature! Read on for more.
I've started talking to Lumintop directly, but this ODF30 isn't one they'd planned on sending. GearBest sent it out, and here's my test! It's a 26650 light with a Cree XHP70.2 emitter - a category that seems to be getting more interest lately. Read on!
Nitecore has a charger campaign going, and asked that I share this video on my site. I have used Nitecore charges for as long as I've been flashlighting, and I really like them indeed!
I had seen this charger randomly around the internet and it looks so fancy. I like fancy stuff. It also looks like a very capable charger. Here's my review of it. I'll say up front (and this might be the best place, too) that this charger is is advanced enough that my typical charger-tester setup. What I mean by that is the resistance in my usual setup got sensed by the charger and prevented higher current charging.
There's a new light on the block from Thrunite, and I weaseled a review unit out of them (just kidding, they sent it willingly!!). I'm excited to have this one, because there's not a ton of info out there on it yet, and it's nice to have an early copy!
The SkyRC MC3000 is a charger I've been asking GearBest to send for a long while. They finally agreed, and here's my review! This charger is ridiculously capable. I'll say up front that I will not be testing every capability of this charger. I might only just scratch the surface! But I will try to give you an idea about the charger, and if it lives up to the claims that will be useful for a flashlight enthusiast.
Here's the second charger from Folomov and Illumn.com that I'll be reviewing. This time it's a full four-bay charger, with claimed 3A charging capability.
I love getting Convoy lights for review. Here's another one, (and one I have been asking for), the Convoy X3. This is a 26650 format small thrower, with cell versatility and a great tint. Read on for more!
A new 4-bay charger by Nitecore! My main and most-used charger is a Nitecore (d4), which I'm very satisfied with. I was hoping this would be a replacement/upgrade to my old d4; let's see how it fares!
Zanflare recently entered the market with some flashlights, and now they have a charger on the market too! Looks pretty well built, but let's dive in and see how it works. This model is called the "C4" and it's a 4 bay, multi size, multi chemistry, analyzing charger.
I've had mixed results with Imalent - I reviewed a capacitive switch light of theirs a while back that I really didn't care for. I think they've improved it with this light, so I'm excited to put this Imalent DN70 through it's paces.
Here's a big ol' 26650 light that turns out to not really be that big! Carries well, onboard charging, on and on! Great light, read more to see the testing!
