These are way better for your batteries than the cheap chargers you can buy.

It's a matter of opinion but I would probably want to go for something that does C, D, 18650, ect cells as well.Xtar, Opus and Nitecore over LCD panel chargers with advanced features. XTAR charger: s.aliexpress.com/Jz67rQBV

I was asked before:
Why is the Xtar charger better than the one in the OP?

It can charge many many kinds of li-on and ni-mh ni-cd batteries as well as C cells. The vape market and laptops has pushed 18650 battery technologies very far it seems like madness to me not to have a charger that can do them all.

The price difference is nominal for a lot of future proofing and ability to charge many different cells.

Had several chargers, mostly cheap, took forever to charge. With kids around screaming for their toys, decided to go with Duracell. Have it since 2 years ago, no problems at all, 5-20 min and batteries charged. The 45 min Duracell is available for pretty much the same price as well. This is not to suggest the brand is better, it is about the speed. Also, not suggesting this is not a good deal.


Its better to slow charge batteries which this charger can do; the batteries will retain nearer their original capacity for longer.

They are ok but I had one lasted maybe 2 years before it died and it didn't really get much use..
Mine has been good, have had it for probably 2 years also.
I like the thick battery chargers for a fiver

Had very little use then just died.
Not sure if it's the power supply or the charging unit itself.

Does the Duracell charge larger batteries like the 18650s?

As far as I am aware it does not. So, I guess this will help if you have such batteries. I personally never came across a device in need of such battery.
How is the Duracell charging that fast it must be dodgy this type of charger is probably ok for vapers but most go for xtar, nitecore ones they charge at 1amp with two batteries then 500mah with 3 or 4 unless the Duracell is charging at 2 plus amp on all batteries I can’t see it fully charging them doesn’t seem right

Been charging my Eneloops at 500mA for months with the XTAR, still got factory capacity.

Anyway this charger OP posted is much better than most junk chargers, heat.

Agree. I guess for some, convenience may be better. Me, with 2 small children, I always get caught with no batteries when they get new toys. For me it's worth to 'destroy' the batteries, rather than having them screaming for hours:).

The XTAR is not a fast charger but it know it works well as I have one. A Duracell charger that charges in 15 minutes will charge much higher than 500mA I suspect. I think I also have one somewhere but not used for a long while.... I do remember the batteries coming out of it very hot!
Edited by: "afroylnt" 5th Aug
Must be pound shop low capacity AA if you can fully charge in 15 mins, decent Eneloops or other 2000+ma cells would take two hours on this chargers max charge rate of 1000ma.

Understand. Vapex do a good 8 bay charger (I do have one but use my XTAR now) if you had a large stock of rechargeable batteries.,,

Charger for 18650 = 1£ on ebay
Bought this when it was recommended on Hot Deals before. Rubbish build and lots of functions that the average person doesn't need. Tricky to use and comes with unintelligible instructions. Worst of all it won't charge batteries if they are completely dead so factor in buying a second charger to put a little bit of life into batteries before you can use it (just Google it). A complete waste of money.

Many of the smart chargers won't charge completely dead batteries but 10-15 mins in a non-smart charger usually gives them enough for the smart charger to take over.
Are these any good for Eneloop Pro?

Yes, I have had one of these chargers and use it with my eneloop pro's .It is a fantastic charger. Lots of options to refresh discharge etc etc

To put life into a dead battery to start it with a smart charger there is no need for a second charger, just use a good battery and end to end them to give a charge to the dead one. Method here.
Thanks for posting. Heat.
Had mine for over 2 years and fine I even use another charger via the 5v output to charge some other batteries in a charger
great price for this - I have the SC1000 (it's little brother that only charges AA and below batteries) as it was cheaper at the time and I didn't need 18650 charging. As this now costs less it's a no-brainer if you're after a decent charger to look after your batteries.

I also have a couple of 15 minute chargers too though - sometimes a fast charger is a godsend!

I had one of these Duracell fast chargers and it seriously harmed the life of a bunch of my NiMh batteries.

Fast charging shouldn't be done regularly, only if you're in a pinch.

I've had to recondition all my batteries I used in that fast charger in an Opus bt-c3100, I managed to regain about 90% of their rated capacity in average but initially most of my 2500mah batteries were around 300mah only

I know fast charging is not the best solution, I guess it depends on personal circumstances when using it. I use the Duracell charger since 2 years ago and only 2 batteries were affected so far. I've got well over 50 batteries, so this did not affect me that much, however I agree slow charging is better.
Great charger IMHO. Use it 4/5 times a week and no issues at all. Really simple to use, took a few minutes to get used to the functions.

As others have said it won't charge completely dead batteries but that's the case for most intelligent chargers

I use them in LED torches :-)
I have the XTAR and while it does a good enough job, I’d much prefer something like this. The screen is excellent on the XTAR but I’d like the option of manually selecting charging currents + the test feature this has to offer.Plus, it runs off 12 volts which is more convenient for me – I don’t know why they ran the XTAR on USB 5 Volts.It’s not much of an issue using a USB charger to power it but if you lose the special USB power cable you’re up a smelly creek without a paddle.Using a normal micro USB cable would have been better.

I have the AA/AAA version of this which I use more than the XTAR for charging AA and AAA cells, might but this and retire the XTAR and the older AA/AAA charger which has been hammered.

Tip, for totally dead cells buy a cheap USB charger, the pound shop variety preferably. Ikea USB chargers have some smarts in them whereas the most of the pound shop chargers are totally dumb. Cheap solution and you don’t have to store a huge mains charger.

:), no I am not. Tried for about a week and was not for me. Planning to try ago, so good to know what batteries these use.
I have had one of these chargers for almost 4 years now, and it has charged 7Dayshops 2500mAh as well as Eneloop 1900mAh batteries over and over.
I did pay £27.17 through Flubit when it was running for mine, which is named as BC-700 Alpha Power 9 in 1 intelligen Battery Charger.

I did a Deal about this (assume it's the same, the one I posted is branded Uniross) just before the New Year. I didn't buy one (though boyf has been happily using his and, no issues as far as I know) and commented on the dead battery conundrum hotukdeals.com/com…916

Also, hotukdeals.com/com…450

You don't need a spare charger for this. Get a battery that isn't flat and just bridge the negative and positive terminals on the battery with the one that is flat (use a screwdriver, paperclip or anything conductive). The flat battery will have a small enough charge for use in this charger.

To be fair, the Duracell fast charger I've got is many years old, they might have changed the method/circuitry since so your mileage may vary.

This is the cheap USB charger, LiitoKala Lii, I have lying around (in fact, I bought two) which cost me 76p hotukdeals.com/dea…909 - well-reviewed and often comes down in price. You can get larger sizes too, 2 and 4 slot.
