        Used the VC2 to measure the total charge in the purple efest batts which are advertised as 2500mah.
        I used them in the ipv3 Li, and once it reached low batt ( around 3.2v ), i charged them using the VC2 - when fully charged a total of 2370mah had been delivered to the batts , each. Its pretty impressive, as has been my experience - these batts actually have the capacity that they are advertised to have

          Was considering the XTAR VC2 Charger SKU 2355101 and wanted to confirm if this would be a good choice. Saw the NiteCore IntelliCharger i2 Charger on amazon india as well and wanted a quick validation for the choice of charger to procure.

            XTAR VC2 is good to go buddy. The Nitecore I2 is also good. Both are good companies but I prefer the XTAR brand. Nitecore has some problem, it just keeps charging and charging and sometimes takes more than 5 hours to charge my 18650s. Whereas, the XTAR is a bit consistent and seems to charge batteries consistently. If today it takes 2 hours to charge my batteries, it would take almost the same time tomorrow and day after.

              Good thing about the VC2 is you can check the total maH dumped to the battery - this will tell you the condition of the battery
              I love both the VP2 & VC2

                I really haven't dived into the specs but XTAR has MC1 and MC2 also lmao .. Those are a bit cheaper ones but work pretty good

                  Thanks andy & kalc for the detailed explanation as well as the additional recommendation. Did a review of the XTAR MC2 and a couple notable differences wrt to the VC2 are:
                  a. LCD display screen in the VC2
                  b. Adopted from the VP2 charger, the VC2 can revive overly discharged batteries

                  Also, the dimension of the VC2 is slightly larger to incorporate the LCD. I am leaning towards the VC2 as it has been well reviewed and seems to be durable.

                        Hi There,
                        I am looking for the Nitecore new i4 (2016) model. Do you have that in stock? I saw one on your website but it does not mention whether it's 2014 or 2016.

                          Hello Andy,
                          How does this compare to the Nitecore New i4?

                            All good bro .. Nitecore i2/i4 are just analog chargers. You could compare the Xtar VC2/vc4 with the Nitecore D2/D4 though. The purpose is the same, and all nitecores/xtars are good at that.
