This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Note the particularly useful feature for restoring apparently dead cells:

The NEW i4 charger from Nitecore improves upon the original model with six new features:

100% Charging Acceleration
Active Current Distribution Technology
Expanded Compatibility to Support 3.7V and 4.35V batteries
IMR Battery Restoration
Automatic Current Selection Based on Battery Capacity
Automatic Detection of Non-Rechargeable Lithium Batteries
100% Charging acceleration means the Nitecore NEW i4 can charge at up to 1500mA current in one slot.

Active current distribution (ACD) technology allows for the dynamic distribution of the NEW i4's charging power. For example, if two batteries are being charged in the NEW i4 and one of them completes charging, all charging power will automatically go to the other slot and charge the battery at the fastest speed.

Expanded compatibility to support 3.7V and 4.35V batteries allows you to charge a host of batteries with a single charger. Compatible with 1.2V, 3.7V, 4.2V and 4.35V. By simple operation with the V button it is easy to set charging voltage in each slot independently.

IMR battery restoration will restore 0V depleted cells by pressing and holding both the C and V buttons simultaneously.

The NEW i4 can intelligently select the most appropriate charging current based on automatic battery capacity detection.


Available with either a UK or Continental wall plug - please select from the drop down menu.

Safety features include:

Optimisation for IMR charging by monitoring the voltage stays within safe limits
Overtime charging protection, limiting to 20 hours
Made from fire retardant, flame resistant materials
Automatic Intelligent Temperature Control preventing overheating

You beat me to it in posting this
I bought two of these, from 7DayShop, a few months ago when they were £13.99.
Excellent units - they've charged / revived every battery I've thrown at them, and will even charge C and D size (only two at a time though because of their physical size).
Have some heat

Silly question, do they include any battery? Thanks

What do you think about comparison with this

amazon.co.uk/Ama…nVl
Nitecore make some really nice chargers as has been seen on here a few times, but they are better known for their torches such as the Tiny Monster - never seen the price change much on these, but then who pays nearly £400 for a torch?

Absolutely not comparable.
The Amazon one is just a basic, non-intelligent charger for AA and AAA Ni-MH batteries only.
The posted deal is for an intelligent digital charger, mainly intended for eCig (18650) batteries but will charge / revive nearly all types & sizes of rechargeable batteries.

Hope that helps.
Any recommendations of AA and AAA batteries to go with it ?

Easy. Eneloops or IKEA Ladda 2450, which are identical and much cheaper [waits for arguments to start]
Need one for my car

Does it really revive batteries too? There must be a special mode for it. Can you elaborate please? Thanks.

I had several AA and AAA batteries that were 'dead' due to previous charging with a basic charger followed by a long period of non-use.
The terminals also had extensive oxidation on them, so I cleaned these up a bit with some fine sandpaper and then tried charging them. The basic charger I had didn't even recognise the batteries at all, but the Nitecore i4 thought about it for a few minutes, and then started charging them quite happily.
You can also manually set the charging voltage for any individual compartment, but I've never needed to do this - leaving it in automatic mode has worked perfectly every time for me.
Anyone got this? have the Nitecore D4 model and whilst awesome, gets far to hot for my liking...is this the same?

Yes I have, and no it doesn't get hot at all.
I've posted a few previous comments above that may be useful to you.
Will this do 16650 batteries?
Does the D4 have any major advantages over this i4 model?I can see it’s £6 more expensive for the D4

'fraid so. But, to be fair, I did personally carry out some detailed testing on them, comparing the results with those from Eneloop, and it entirely backed up the claims made.

I've now switched entirely to the IKEA version.
Great charger got a older version a couple of years back.Charges majority of size batteries even my vape batteries.Hot.
Pretty comprehensive, and well regarded, test site post here:

Not a perfect charger, but very cheap at this price and pretty much all-purpose.

Just nicked this from same site as mentioned on the above comment: lygte-info.dk/rev…tml

I have the D4 and my only quibble is how warm it gets (I'm sure its not faulty or anything as completes the job everytime). It gives you digital info on top of what the i4 does, but cant honestly say that doesnt matter that much for me. Using it for mainly 18650s and coming from a very basic, but reliable Efest Soda - takes ages with 4 batts on the go, but thats prob the same with all of these.

"Displays voltage, current and time."

Does it display the charge in mAh too?

More cycles vs.. higher capacity.

Fujitsu, AmazonBasics, Duracell Recharge Ultra, Eneloop, LADDA, etc. Check where they're made, if it's in Japan and they're low self-discharge NiMH they're all made by the same factory and equally as good.
Anyone tried the IMR battery restoration? How is it?
I was going to get this a few weeks ago but plumped for the XTAR VC4, cost me £16.95.
Nice piece of equipment although a bit more expensive.

Bought an intelligent charger off 7 Day before and it failed just out of warranty.

Wasn't branded Nightcore but looks very similar.

I had to Google that.
What a convoluted name that is.

The slowness isn't down to your USB charger then?
Maybe someone can help me here......

I purchased a Nitecore i4 over a year ago....

Unfortunately I had some nearly new Energiser AA batteries in it and when I came back to the unit three had essentially exploded.... Not hollywood exploded...... but their innards were splashed all over the place....

My retailer... one guess... was excellent in providing a refund even though the unit was slightly out of warranty, but since then I have been using an old faithful legacy Energiser universal charger.....

My likes on the legacy charger are:

1) That it has a lid.... so if anything should happen, all the mess is contained within the unit....
2) It is reliable and has not blown any batteries
3) Has simple indicators

Whilst i love the above the drawbacks are....

1) You have to pair batteries
2) Doesnt charge "non standard" size batteries
3) Not very fast
4) Getting fussy with some of my older batteries
5) Cannot repair failed ones like the nitecore claims to


Can anyone recommend something that gives me all the benefits, but none of the draw backs....... Also I am nervous with Nitecore due to past experience and headache, so would prefer a traditional brand ie energiser, duracell, Panasonic etc.....

Thanks for reading my book and I appreciate any help or tips...
