The first thing I noticed out of the box about the charger is that it is well made and solid. No components rattled or were loose. Metal sliders and springs are high quality metal. The appearance of the unit is sleek and high tech. The size is virtually the same as the older Xtar VC4 model but gives the impression of a more sophisticated and premium product. During the charging time not one of the batteries became hot to the touch only slightly warm. They remained cooler in temp than any other battery charger I have ever used. When removing the batteries after charging I noticed that the charging slots were longer than my Xtar’s VC4’s. Way to go Xtar.

List of batteries used:
Xtar 18650-3.6V-10Amp-2900mAh-10.44Wh
Sofirn 18650-3.7V-3000mAh
Folomov 18650-3.7V-2600mAh-9.62Wh
Samsung 18650-30Q
EagleTac 18650-3.7V-3400mAh-12.6Wh
Xtar 14500-3.7V-800mAh-2.96Wh Black and Gold.
Vapcell 14500-3.7V-1000mAh Gold

Definitely a recommended charger. While charging all the batteries used they only became slightly warm.
***Please note. Xtar provided me the charger free of charge. All charging times are rounded up to the nearest minute.

I noticed flashlight and gear reviews posted on this site. If this review is in the incorrect forum or not wanted please inform me and I will delete or move it as soon as I notice the request. Not looking to cause any trouble or be a troll.

As long as your review is honest and fair, I am perfectly okay with it being here.  :D


Looks interesting, although I am still perfectly happy with my Intellicharger. 

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.
