£10 cheaper than the one I bought, and that was the cheapest at the time available in the UK ><

@ look30 hi, ok im going to have a go from memory lol.. the i2 has a charge current set at 0.5a ? . the vp1 has selectable charge currents of 0.25 0.5 and 1.0 amp. so you can charge many more different li-ion batteries SAFELY than the i2. the 1 amp setting i use a lot on my hybrid or imr 18650 cells. the 0.25 is handy for small stuff like 10440 or low mah rcr123 etc. the vp1 has a digital display too. also on a more technical side i think the vp1 uses a slightly better charging algorithm than the i2.

the i2 can charge nimh/nicad as well..the vp1 cannot.

but indeed the i2 works fine :)

and just my personal opinion.. but ive seen a lot less posts of the VP1 getting hot/failing etc as compared to the nitecore charger. but thats just my opinion.

Does this have the ability to show mAh input and the capacity of the battery?

It displays the set charging current (0.25, 0.5 and 1 A) but does not show cell capacity, only charge progress. Two voltmeters show the voltage for each bay.
