Power bank ! Cool
As far as i can tell this doubles as a power bank hence the usb port underneath and the samll switch.
In the wishlist it goes, great portable charger that can charge my phone with Nitecore quality.

EDIT: Maybe not... Bummer
The tiny switch makes less sense now, if it is only pass-through

Using "regulation" as poorly disguised prohibition is criminal. Vaping is not smoking, reduces harm and saves lives.

I've been looking into this since I need a new charger and prefer one with micro usb input.
Doesn't look like it can be used as a powerbank unfortunately, just charges other devices from the usb when plugged in.
Also haven't seen anything about charging nimh batteries on any reputable sites, nitecore themselves lists it as li-ion and imr only.
Still looks like a good charger tho, and it's in the wishlist for now.

Edit: well the um20 is in the wishlist, but the rest applies to this one too...

That means while charging a battery you can also charge another device by connecting it to the USB output of the charger.

Edited the OP - bummer.

lol i had the picture of it unfolded open and i clicked on the tab real quick and i thought it was a gun lol! this is pretty decent, be great for in a car but i paid about that much for my i2, i would rather have less fancy features and get 2 battery sleds instead of 1 very fancy slot.

There is a 2 bay version, that's the one I'm interested in, still decently priced at 15 bucks.
Still want to confirm if it charges nimh batteries first before I buy tho...
