    Xtar's VC2s is a great little charger.

    I just received the VC2s I purchased from Amazon. The box the charger arrived in looks like the one I received direct from Xtar. The one difference is that the anti-counterfeit sticker is on the box and not on the charger itself. The anti-counterfeit numbers passed the look up as authentic on...

    Xtar's VC2s is a great little charger.

    Last I heard it is not recommended to overcharge Lithium Ion cells. 4.7 volts is overcharged. Cells could go boom and catch fire at that voltage to my understanding. Volt meters can be inaccurate either handheld or when incorporated in chargers. Does your Skyrc MC3000 display the voltage of...

    Xtar's VC2s is a great little charger.

    More testing this weekend. December 29-31, 2018. Will test the power bank function charging my tablet. Charge and discharge a completely different pair of batteries. Side by side charging of the VC2s and VC2 plus. Which one is faster? Checking the anti-counterfeit serial number and displaying...

    Xtar's VC2s is a great little charger.

    I thought that maybe it lengthens the overall service life of the battery since the last few minutes of the charge is the hardest on the battery(s).

    Xtar's VC2s is a great little charger.

    Before I found Xtar battery chargers I had gone through various expensive AA-D size NiMh chargers that were cheaply made and provided poor performance. When I needed to charge my first 18650 battery because I got a fancy flashlight I choose an Xtar battery charger for two reasons. Good product...

    Sofirn's C8A is a flashlight worthy of owning because it is fantastic.

    I own a few nice C8’s made by Lumintop and Nitecore. I thought these C8’s were nice and bright. Then I received a C8A from Sofirn to do a review. The Sofirn C8A turns out to be the brightest single emitter flashlight I own now. One of the things I like about it is that has a good amount of side...

    Photo review of the Sofirn SP32a flashlight.

    Sofirn SP32a flashlight review part two. For Part 1 of my Sofirn 32a flashlight review I charged the Sorfirn 18650 battery with the supplied single bay charger. It took approximately 2 hours and 51 minutes to reach a full charge. I then took many photos of the flashlight’s beam in various...

    Photo review of the Sofirn SP32a flashlight.

    [INDENT] Sofirn provided me the flashlight for review. It is a very well built light for the price. I am still analyzing the included battery and charger so no comment about those yet. The flashlight is very bright and heats up fast on turbo mode. I view this as good heat sinking. The beam is...

    Nitecore EA41 & Fenix E41

    Not looking to anger anyone or say anything negative about Fenix or Nitecore flashlights. Since it is to my understanding that the emitters in both the Nitecore EA41 & Fenix E41 flashlights rest atop a plastic shelf has anyone had a premature failure with either one of these flashlights? Thanks.

    Question regarding two eBay sellers: Quality China Goods & Hi-Fi Flashlights.

    Forgive me if this post is in the wrong place. Both of the listed eBay sellers are from China and of course sell flashlights. Has anyone had a good or bad experience with either seller? I am thinking of buying flashlights from them. Thanks.

    XTAR B20 XM-L U3 1000Lm 5mode multipurpose flashlight

    Just found this light. It has great specifications and it's just $50.00 at some retailers. Does anyone have some thoughts about it? It has a higher turbo output than the Fenix PD35.
