Rounded corners and a metal rail for the slider. (So it will hopefully be smoother)

My wf-139 has started too

My wf-139 has started too have a high-pitched sound and it gets a little warmer than before… And it smells o little too… Use my small usb-minicharger instead…

Looks like this will be a good buy!

Thanks for the tip, will take a chance on DD!

hmmmm…. Precautions! “1.

hmmmm…. Precautions!

“1. When used at 110V, do not charge four Li-ion rechargeable batteries simultaneously.

2. The i4 charger cannot identify the battery capacity itself. *So when charging one single 10440 Li-ion battery or AAA

rechargeable battery, the i4 still emits about 1A current or charging, causing the battery to become hot. *

Therefore :

- Please do not use the i4 to charge one single 10440 Li- ion or one single AAA rechargeable battery.

- When charging two 10440 Li-ion or two AAA

rechargeable batteries, please set them in slot 1 and 3 or slot 2 and 4.””

"1. When used at 110V, do not charge four Li-ion      rechargeable batteries simultaneously."

I'm gonna hazard a guess this is the v1 boards in a new case. Trying to pass them off and make some more money. I'm avoiding this one.

The link shows this one

The link shows this one charges at .750a or .375a for two cells on the same channel. Didn’t the v1 charge at 1a or .5 for 2 cells?

re: "LOT! of info here about the charger"... WRONG

fran82 posted a link to a Canadian distributor’s site, NOT Jetbeam’s (http://www.jetbeamlight.com) and then took erroneous info from the distributor’s site leading a number of members astray.

If they had read a little further in the “boxes” quoted from j2ledflashlight.com, they would also have read, “Details of warranty service, please contact regional distributor/dealer or send an email to service@nitecore.com “ (emphasis added)

So, REGARDLESS of the webpage and pictures used by that distributor – as Jetbeam no longer has ANY business relationship with Sysmax/Nitecore – that the distributor had posted information irrelevant to the i4 PRO and, as scaru’s and manxbuggy1’s posts pointed out above, were spec’s for the v1 board (i.e. when Jetbeam/Sysmax/Nitecore were still one big happy family…)

Spec’s are still absent from the product info page at Jetbeam’s website, but it looks like they’ve been reading the forum reviews and the crappy sliders from the “Nitecore” unit have been modified. I’ll conjecture they’ve kept the v2 board while modifying the housing…

I’d be amazed if they went

I’d be amazed if they went back to using the old V1 boards – since they recalled that version, what would be the point? I’d guess this will be V2 or V3 – it does seem to independently charge all bays now (I assume that this means that the 1 & 3; 2 & 4 bays are no longer linked).

This looks like Jetbeam using their part of the old Sysmax/Nitecore/Jetbeam intellectual property and making a competitor to the Sysmax I4. I4 Pro – what a good original name. Wink

If it is a different circuit, I wonder if HKJ has been sent one to test.

hey guys… The link Kreisler

hey guys…

The link Kreisler posted… the jetbeam website

Look at “specifications”

“Output current: 375mA × 4 / 750mA × 2”

I think is again the same. The channels continue being 1 and 3, 2 and 4 for the charging current. I think it is only some “visual” changes and the SS spring guides… who knows

If the info is OK at JetBeam website………

Darn, I feel cheated.. it’s a Dino offering Tongue

Anywhere else currently selling the newest i4 at a similar price? Is the i4 v2 being sold on Amazon the same as this one operationally? I don’t care about color or other design enhancements that don’t actually improve performance. I’d love to get it from Amazon or this ebay seller if possible. I’d rather pay a few more dollars if it means buying from a local vendor.

Aimkon is an awesome seller. I have bought several lights from them and receive them in 2 to 3 days max. Iirc that is who I bought my i4 from.

Daylighter beat me to it. Lol.

As suggested in my prior post – given the split in marketing between Jetbeam and Sysmax/Nitecore (August) – this is likely(?) the v2 board in an upgraded housing (sliding metal contacts – better than what HKJ tested here… maybe their reading these forums?)

As the site is currently lacking a lot of information on the i4 Pro and the manual cannot be download (check out there downloadpage here – transition(?) stage) waiting to hear back and will post info when/if received

So when I tried to “open a case” to cancel the order, they asked me to provide pictures of the defective item….. That I had ordered 10 mins before.

So rather than try to go through that nonsense, I’ll just let them send it to me then test/open it up for the good of the forum.

Funny thing is, a while ago I posted link to DinoDirect with charger that looked like this one but had different brand name, funny, isnt it, that now its “finally” released by Sysmax “officially”.
Looking at DD’s listing it looks like the only difference is additional white color, slight body restyling and “PRO” added to its name.
Metallic sliders? Ok, thats something that ‘‘might’‘ add to durability of this device.

So, why would it be worth buying if you already have i4 V2?
Sure, if you never had one, this is a great deal, much cheaper than i4 ever was.

Sysmax/Jetbeam no more...

No veer, not a release from sysmax, but from jetbeam

Jetbeam ≠ Sysmax/Nitecore (~= August)
