I just got it, so I can’t really comment yet until I spend some time with it. I’ll provide some feedback then.

The C2-4000 would be of more interest to me. 

I would like to see how well it does compared to my LiitoKala Lii-500.

 

Only charges 2 cells at a time but at a higher curret than the Lii-500. Might make testing time shorter.

Now that I have a couple of C8s in use, I“m eagerly awaiting HKJ’s review of the 4-cell charger.

And hoping for resellers in the US to pick these up. Have you sent one to MtnElectronics for review?

Definitely. Normal prices are $45 to $50. I ordered one as well and got the same $3 coupons to bring the price down to $29.

picture is not showing

For me 2 4 port are more flexible, maybe in a company with lots of flashlights used every night an 8-port may be useful,
so they can charge em all to next shift

As its more one you dump in a lot cells and let it run till you need the cells
definitely terminate without trickle charge

Is it still going to fit 26650 in all slots and still do 3A each? Like a C8-12 or C8-24.

It’s interesting, but the higher price might put some people off. On the other hand, for those that might be in the market for a big charger, if the price is less than buying 2 of the C4-12, then it would have appeal.

having that many slots is mostly used when no one is there to put new cells in when 4 cells are finished, like charging for next nightshift, while no one is around
usually it makes no sense to get very high charge currents on such chargers, simple 8×1-1.5A charger would do the job, no display or other fancy stuff

Nightshift? Are you thinking of corporate sales? I just assumed this was aimed at individuals or hobbiests.

Flashlight testing, review. Stormy nights with downed trees and a mess to clean up, charge a lot of cells up and head out into the night. Charging cells for 2 BLF Q8’s, or one BLF GT. There’s a lot of reasons to have an 8 cell charger. I have 3 already, and it’s not enough even with the 4 bay and 2 bay chargers I have to assist them.

Was just talking with a friend earlier today and he’s looking for a good 8 bay charger at a decent price, he does a lot of reviews and his wife and son use up his lights, lol.

The 8 slot charger sounds nice for Giggles, for charging two Q8’s at a time, or for charging all 6 of the AA’s in my DSLR battery grip in a single charger. I prefer charging a set of batteries in the same charger, and this gets larger sets done in a single shot.

The low mode should be lower.

Doh! Leaftye beat me to it -

Or maybe some people would like to charge up all 8 cells for their BLF GT ….

Sure, you could do 4 at a time like Lexel indicated but you’ve just doubled your wait time. Lets say you have a 4 slot (1 amp per cell) charger and 8× 3000mah 18650. That’s a lot of hours to charge batteries for 1 torch (not to mention having to change over cells halfway). This 8 cell charger would look appealing after that.

It would be great if new C8 would use same power supply as C4-12 and have option to charge 4 cells at 3A and 8 cells at 1,5A . Man that’s what I’m imagining a dream charger. You could charge all 8 cells for BLF GT in 2 hurs if using 30Q-s Big Smile

I would definitely like to review one of those when they become available for testing….

I’ve got 20 years in night security. Guards don’t share flashlights. I’ve never seen it at least.

1A over 8 bays (with multiple charging rate options) sounds like a dream charger to me as well.

I do like the 10 different charging rates.
Li-ion:
0.1A/0.2A/0.3A/0.5A/0.8A/1.0A/1.5A/2.0A/2.5A/3.0A

You can pretty much charge any sized cell at its highest safest level for faster charge times. Nobody likes waiting. Lol

I think a lot of people will be disappointed with the lower charge rates. This is half the power of the C4-12 instead of double the power.
