The new VC2S has 2 independent charging channels, can charge any chemistry, and can also work as a PowerBank to charge your other devices via the USB-OUT port.
2 Amp wall adapter (US Plug) is NOT included. If you want the adapter, please add it via the drop down.
Xtar chargers are top notch and the VC2S is a 6th generation charger. I searched high and low for the best value (performance + price) in a modern charger and this is it.
One question that always arises is, how full is my battery? You can check this with an external volt meter, but it's about time that we integrated this into the actual charger right!? The VC2S does that and more.
The VC2S also allows you to charge ANY type of rechargeable battery that will fit: Li-Ion, Ni-Mh, and even Nicd. The charger automatically detects the battery type and sets the appropriate charge parameters. You can even charge two different battery types at the same time because of the 2 separate charging channels.
The last cool feature of the VC2S is the USB-OUT function. That means you can put a full battery into the charger and use that battery to charge an external USB device...like your cell phone.
Be advised, you can plug the VC2S into any USB port to initiate a charge; however, a standard USB port only delivers 500mA of current. This is enough to power one charging channel. If you put in 2 batteries the current (500mA) gets divided by 2. If you use the 2A USB wall adapter you can charge 2 batteries at 1000mA per channel.
