Thread: Charger Suggestions for 18650 Batteries

    Default Charger Suggestions for 18650 Batteries

    Looking for charger recommendations for both protected and unprotected 18650 batteries. I prefer a charger that is safe and pretty much automatic including shut down. I have an old PIVA IBC but can't find the manual and not sure how long they last nor the specifics anymore.

    I've got a Nitcore UM2 that I use to charge 18650s (protected and unprotected), 14440s, 14500s, AAs, AAAs and RCR123As with zero issues.

    I picked up a Miboxer "C4 plus" a few months ago. It's performed very well so far with both Li-ion and NiMH cells. It will automatically set the charge current depending on internal resistance, but this can be overridden manually.

    Anyone looking for a new charger should check out HKJ's charger comparator.

    Zanflare C4 is my primary charger, I have a few Xtar chargers that are good as well.
