Is this good?
I've been wanting to buy this one for awhile now, does anyone have this charger - any pros/cons or should I get a different one?

Thanks

Spend the extra and get the VC4 - it's freakin' AWESOME.

The only major difference between the two other than the extra bays, is that this only charges at 500mAh, whilst the VC4 will charge two at 1A, or all four bays at 500mAh.

If you already have a fast charger get this, if you don't get the C4.

C4 does 2@1A, 4@0.5A, 4@0.25A
C2 does 4@0.5A, 4@0.25A

So if you have something that has 2 1A bays you're aswell getting the cheaper one

True, as the charge from flat feature is something you need once in a blue moon (but you'll be so glad you've got an Xtar when you do), so it could compliment another unit you already have. HOWEVER, I like the VC4 as it effectively replaces all my other chargers - the fact it can charge ordinary nicads is worth it for me. Of it had one amp on all bays, it would be the last charger any of us need to buy until battery technology changes.

Would this effect performance or only the time it takes to charge two batteries?
Thanks in advance

The XTAR VC4 charger is a combination of our XP4C and VC2 charger! The intelligent charger can recognize, charge, and display charging current, battery voltage, and charge capacity of both Ni-MH and Li-ion batteries at the same time! This is a USB powered charger so it can be plugged into any of your existing AC USB wall adapter plugs (e.g. Apple, Samsung, etc.)


For a extra $12 the vc4 will charge all your batteries not just li-on

Flashlights: I put in a battery and press the button, if I can see again they work. If not I replace the battery. If that doesn't work I strip it down and turn it into a vape mod and get a new light.

Just time. I used to be one of those idiots who told people that the slower you charge, the better it is for the cell. Total nonsense; all the cells we use can be charged at 2A with not the slightest impact on longevity.

The VC4 is better value- and can charge NiMH & NiCd

This would be ok for travelling or backup
