    Default NITECORE New i4 2016 Intellicharger

    Kind like locking the barn door after the horse is stolen but I'll ask anyway. Ordered this charger yesterday:
    Wondered if anyone has any knowledge/experience with it, gets good reviews on Amazon.

    Remember when pagers were a 'thing'?

    We've moved on.

    Welcome to CPF!

    I have the 2014 version and if you can overlook the sometimes high termination voltages on many examples and the exploding power cords on some other examples, what's not to like?

    No info on what "we've" moved on to? Just a link giving detail on older versions?

    My reply wasn't an attempt at being all inclusive and he wasn't asking about other chargers, just the NiteCore i4 2016 model, which is based on the 2014 model, which is based on an even older model, from circa 2011.

    I like the Xtar VP2 for quality two bay charging of all lithium-ion cells, but it doesn't do NiMH and it doesn't do 4 bays.

    The Xtar Dragon, the SkyRC MC3000, the Liitokala Lii 500 Engineer and the Opus BT-3100/3400 are all quality multi-chemistry consumer chargers.

    Spend a few hours reading here and HKJ's reviews on chargers:

    Well I've been using this charger quite a bit since yesterday and it looks like given the limited overall use it will be getting it should server me well with a wide variety of batteries.

    That's the hope at least.

    Get a digital multi-meter (DMM), even a cheap one and just check your li-ion cells and NiMH batteries coming off the charger. We should do this with every charger, frankly.

    Trust, but verify.

    Not a problem, I've got 4 or 5 very good multi-meters around, I used to be in Electronics before moving to computers and software a few years ago.

    Edit: I've already checked every battery that has been charged on it and they have all been right on the money, so far.
