I have in my hands today the new Nitecore powerbank, which is a lipo pouch cell, allowing a very flat, rectangular (phone like!) size and shape. It’s also comparatively high capacity, so read on for some thoughts and testing!
I’ve tested a bunch of Vapcell cells, but I think this is the first charger. Also it’s been a long time since I tested a charger and so I ended up not testing this one in a timely manner. This is my last remaining 2019 review item. Sorry Vapcell and thanks for being patient! Also I’m stating up front that my charger reviews are likely going to get scaled back. In this case I’m basically testing the main feature, which is the ability to charge 4 bays at 3A each!!
XTAR has a nice new EIGHT BAY charger available, and it’s powered by USB-C. Those are both fairly unusual features. Also the charger is inexpensive, so it’s definitely worth consideration.
Here’s a random charger that BangGood dropped in the latest package to me. I didn’t know anything about it but it claims pretty fast charging over all 4 bays, so let’s see how it work!
Today I’m back at it with an item from XTAR. This is their new charger the VC4S. It’s a 4-bay charger with some pretty impressive capabilities! Read on for more!
Today I have another charger by XTAR in for review. I have reviewed a number of “simple” chargers by XTAR (the D2 and D4, for example). This is simple in the same way, but adds Quick Charge 3 connectivity. That means it should be capable of faster (much faster?) charging that other (non QC3) chargers. Let’s see if that pans out!
Second in my list of Vapcell cells directly from Vapcell is another 14500. This is presumably the same cell as the flat top, but with a button added. Performance should be very similar, though! Read on for graphs and more!
My first “real” cell charger was a Nitecore D4. Nitecore came close to replacing it a while back with the SC4, but they’ve certainly done it with these new two chargers – the USM2 and USM4. These chargers (most importantly?) fit 21700 cells, among other awesome features. Read on!
