The XTAR VC2s is a seriously good bit of kit and at fantastic value for money. Outperforming the competitors dramatically. Complete with fast charging the charger is an incredible value, highly efficient and an economical charger. Capable of charging a wide selection of batteries quickly and from low charge. USB compatible makes the VC2s internationally compliant. Advanced onscreen readings give a host of valuable data about your batteries whilst in charge mode. The high quality and reliable charger can also be used as a power bank and a standalone USB charger.
Soft Start Charging:
For batteries completely out of charge recharging can be problematic for many chargers. Yet the VC2s recharges with a breeze from flat each and every time. Perfect to bring those tired batteries back to live easily and quickly.
Three stage charging regulates both the voltage and current supplied to batteries in 3 stages thus ensuring best practice recharging whilst minimizing wear on the batteries themselves.

USB Charging and Powerpath Management
Not only can the VC2s charge batteries with the utmost accuracy and reliability it can also charge stand along with USB devices too even when the device itself is also being charged by USB. The VS2s does this by advanced Powerpath Management. This not only improves efficiency but also minimizes wear on the charger itself and batteries potentially used. The XTAR VC2s can be charged by any 5V USB socket, the standard and most common currently available, as well a Micro USB connection too.
Portable Power Bank
Another trick up the sleeve of the VC2s charger is the ability to act as a remote powerbank completely disconnected from the mains power supply. It does this by drawing power from ready powered batteries and can move this current our through its USB ports to any device. *Power is drawn from the battery in the left slot as preference.
The advanced display gives a host of valuable information regarding your batteries and charging requirements, some advanced and some basic to suit all requirements. The LED indicator when green represents a full charge, whereas red represents charging or battery analysis in progress. Various on-screen messages such as ERR alerts you to issues and in this example a reminder that the batteries are inserted incorrectly and upside down. CAP Charging Capacity, CCR (Real-time charging current), IR (Internal resistance) Voltage and battery chemistry is also shown too allowing you to see the overall health of your batteries at any time.
A technology invented by XTAR 0V activation allows recharge of batteries that have gone completely flat. This is pioneering technology now replicated throughout the industry. Not only is this a breakthrough for the consumer who is now able to recharge batteries that would have been typically disposed of it is also an environmental issue too as it allows many batteries to be reused and a great increase in their lifespan.
Internal Resistance Testing/Battery Type Auto Identification
The XTAR VC2s will automatically check the resistance of your batteries on insertion allowing you to gauge battery quality and authenticity. *Please note when batteries are fully charged or the power input is below 700mA. Identification is automatic and takes 4 minutes when the screen will flash with ‘NI-MH’.
