THE NEW VC4S HAS 4 INDEPENDENT CHARGING CHANNELS AND CAN CHARGE ANY CHEMISTRY. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY MY "GO TO" CHARGER.
3 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 VC4S is a 6th generation charger. I searched high and low for the best value (performance + price) in a modern charger and this is it. the VC4S even shows you how much capacity was delivered during charge.
Just like its two-station sibling, the VC4S displays detailed charge information on 4 separate charging channels. The VC4S 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 four different battery sizes/types at the same time because of the 4 separate charging channels.
Be advised, you can plug the VC4S into any USB port to initiate a charge; however, a standard USB port only delivers 500mA of current. If you put in 4 batteries the current (500mA) gets divided by 4. If you use the 3A USB wall adapter you can charge 4 batteries at 750mA per channel. If you are only charging on 1-2 channels, each one will get a maximum of 1500mA.
