XTAR VC4S Smart Battery Charger | 4 Bay

  • XTAR VC4S four-bay charger and is designed for charging Li-ion, NiMH and NiCd batteries. This charger comes standard with XTAR's Award-winning 0V Activation Function which can revive over-discharged batteries and bring them back to life.

    The VC4S supports QC3.0 fast charging to ensure that your batteries charge as quickly as possible. The USB Type C 3.0 input easily charges from a USB wall charger (not included) or powerbank.

    The VC4S Smart Charger will charge up to four batteries at one time and selects the optimal charging strategy by:  detecting the internal resistance of the charged battery; the type of batteries used; input power and it also adjusts it's charging mode depending on the quantity of batteries put on to charge.

    The XTAR VC4S has an integrated LCD screen that provides real-time information including charging status, charging mode and whether the charger is in grade or storage mode.

    Storage mode makes it easier to charge or discharge batteries to their rated voltage, perfect for Long Term Battery Storage. Grade mode tests the true capacity of your batteries by charging, discharging then re-charging your batteries back to their full potential.

    Automatic battery detection
    High precision and auto cut-off when batteries are fully charged
    TC-CC-CV charging method efficiently charges batteries 0V Activation function can revive batteries that appear to be dead from over-discharging and bring them back to life.
    Charge Mode: Once the cell is inserted, the VC4S recognizes the type of chemistry and automatically chooses the ideal charging current.
    Grade Mode:During this phase the charger tests the real capacity of the cell through a "charge-discharge-recharge" process.
    Storage Mode: In this mode the battery is brought to its nominal voltage 1.2V / 3.7V. This voltage is ideal for storage should the cell not be used for a long time.

XTAR VC4 before it, the VC4S utilizes an external 2-amp DC power supply. One of the changes from the VC4 is that they went to a micro-usb plug, instead of a round DC port. I like this change, as it is easy to replace or find when on the go.
The XTAR VC4S The charger has a few different options for how fast it will charge. When connected to a 2-amp charger, placing batteries on the outer two slots will charge at 2 amps, but will also charge 3 or 4 batteries at .5 amps per battery.
VC4S will charge batteries up to their peak voltage, depending on the type of the battery and is compatible with Ni-MH, Ni, CD, and Lithium-Ion IMR, INR, and CR batteries.
