XTAR VC2S USB Battery Charger
Xtar are a brand that have lead the charge on real high quality chargers and useful accessories, and they’ve never changed course after being founded in 2006. We’re bringing back the best, because you deserve it!
The VC2S is the newest version of the favourite VC2 Plus! The S brings along a brand new coloured screen that’s much clearer with its info than the Plus. Bright white popping on a blue background makes it easier to see the detailed info you’re into while charging, like the current capacity, charging current and internal resistance of the battery, changed by a click of its single button.
It also has a clear error display in case of a battery not charging as it should, or the battery being wrongly orientated, and colour coding to show when batteries are charging and are full to the brim!
The S is also capable of putting out two amps across one bay, or one amp across both bays, and of acting as a power bank if you need an extra charge up of your devices on the go! All the usual XTAR quality rolls on with three stage charging, 0V activation and auto ID of NiMh or Li-On cells as standard these days.
The charger is constructed of tough and fire resistant ABS materials, and has overcharge, reverse polarity and short circuit protections. Keep it safe, silly.
