    i4 V2 is generally ok, but 4.6 volt is not good. Try replacing the batteries in your DMM.
    My website with flashlight, battery and charger information: lygte-info.
    More than 200 battery reviews and 80 charger reviews.
    Compare 18650 LiIon batteries or smaller (RCR123, 16340, 14500, 10450) LiIon batteries.

    Or try to confirm the reading with another DMM. I assume you mean the i4v2 and the i2. Which one is giving you this problem and are you getting different results with the other charger?
    If the reading is truly correct (unlikely), you must get rid of the charger and batteries in question ASAP, for your safety.

    If your i2 charge battery to so high voltage, you should send it back for repair. It must be something wrong and never use it.

    Default Beware this overcharger too

    Overcharging to 4.6V is bad enough, but beware there are even worse devices, e.g. cheap eBay chargers that overcharge at 12V (according to eBay reviews). It is scary and puzzling that 173 of these were sold to unwary buyers. Hopefully only some of the devices were defective.

    Below is a picture of said device. Please spread the word about the danger of this device so that no one suffers property loss or personal injury.
