Features and technical details
Conveniently powered by a USB-C supply, the new Xtar VC8 charger accepts up to eight batteries for simultaneous charging, depending on battery type. Highly portable; it connects to PC USB sockets or solar and smartphone chargers. sing clear LCD readouts, the voltage capacity, internal resistance and cell type will be displayed. A USB wall adapter is not included in this set but can be added in the bundles section on this page, it should be noted that if you are using your own adapter, it should be of 15W so that the charger can run at peak performance. The versatile VC8 Charger has the ability to charge 1.2 Volt NiMH/NiCd AAAA, AAA, AA, A, SC and C cells as well as Li-ion/IMR/INR/ICR 3.6V/3.7V battery codes 10440, 14500, 14650, 16340, 17500, 17670, 18350, 18490, 18500, 18650, 18700, 22650, 25500 and 26650. Also, it will charge protected and unprotected 20700 and 21700 cells. Other key features include: Input: QC3.0 i.e. 5 Volts 2 Amps or 9 Volts 2 Amps Channel 1 and 8 have a peak output of 3V that can be adjusted down to 2A, 1A, 0.5A, or 0.25A for each slot. He higher the Amp, the quicker the battery will charge. At the end of the charging cycle, maximum potential is 4.2V (± 0.05V) or 1.45V (±0.1 Volts. Selects 0△V (zero delta voltage) and -△V (minus delta) modes automatically to enhance cell performance. Automatic safety protection against polarity errors, overcharging and short circuit. Flame-retardant construction. Xtar has ensured it can get as much information on the condition of your batteries as possible, to ensure high quality charging. Grade mode (through channels 1 to 4) tests the batteries capacity through charge, discharge and repeated charge cycles and storage mode will double check for correct voltage level. Dimensions: 194mm (length) x 134mm (width) x 34 millimetres (height). Net weight: 350 grammes. Recommended operating temperature range: 0° to 40°C.
