Not much difference at all. The 10507 shows a bit more artifacts in the main beam. It might measure a bit more throw distance, but I can’t see any increase in throw.

Does this have a 3.7v~3.8v storage charge function?

I think one of Xtar’s new chargers has storage mode, was it VC4S?

Why make a mode that stops at 3.7v when you can just take the battery out yourself at whatever voltage you want? I don’t get it. Is it just a made up new feature to make it sound better/cooler? That’s what it seems like.

My iCharger hobby charger has that very useful feature, especially for people who owns batteries that are ‘stored’ for years (like in my case).

Lilo cells are ideally stored at 3.7v for longest life expectancies.

Storage mode, when used, will bring up to 3.7v any cell below it and discharge any cell above 3.7v down to it, Automatically terminating at 3.7 while still completing the proper cc/cv protocol (this is different than just watching the display to 3.7v and taking out the cell).

It alams/stops when done or hits the target voltage if you will, so no spending time hawking the charger…..I have never used it…but if I did, I could appreciate this feature…

Can’t argue with that wisdom. I’ve yet to have used up a cells 500 lives yet, not even close.

You can play a lot with your lights even at the voltage 3.7v-3.8v.
Keeping your cells at top voltage all the time, how many years does it take within you notice decrease in capacity etc. and it starts to be worn?

Opus 3100 has an internal switch that can be set to 3.7v, 4.2v or 4.35v. I've been using that.

To charge LiFePO4 cells. This charger does not support 3.7V or 4.35V chemistries, which most people will never need anyway. Multi-chemistry support is indeed mostly just for feature fluffing.

As others said, 3.7V limit is also useful for storing li-ion cells in their “relaxed” state. Even this is questionable, however, as they will still self-drain and require routine “halving off”. In actual “storage”, this maintenance seems unlikely to happen.

Adjustable voltage limits are useful, regardless. I’m pretty sure that TK charges her cells to 4.15V to avoid 100% top-off. I would do something similar if I could. Yes, this is unnecessary as our cells are quite durable even when kept at 100%, but some of us are geeks in different ways; I’m an optimizer by nature.

Imagine how annoyed I am that I cannot “fix” my smartphones to keep them from killing their own batteries Crazy . The desire for longer runtime right now means that they sacrifice long-term battery life. If there was just a setting to reduce the max charge to 96% or so like there is on my laptop…

Dang, it looks like I’ll be spending money on a Folomov Pen L1.

I like the C2 that I’ve had for a couple weeks.
