XTAR Crazy November(Part 2 GW)--Be the First to use the Fastest Charger Ever

Hi guys, we’re back.

With the celebration of Halloween and Thanksgiving, we’re bringing it on for the whole month Silly

Make it wild!

Part 1:(ENDED. Part 2 Begins now, please check below)

Halloween Giveaway

A famous festival with grand traditions—fancy supernatural costumes, trick-or-treat games, Jack’o lanterns, combine into an unforgettable evening.

As the same purpose of honoring the tradition, XTAR’s newer release MC6II is now available.
So, we’re giving away a brand new MC6II, with an absolutely easy rule Smile

Born with a retro look, MC6II is designed and put forward to honor world’s first 6-slot charger, XTAR WP6, which brings things from fancy back to the fundamental element—the perfection of charging. The best TC-CC-CV charging method, 0V activation, comes with the perfect compatibility to the future mainstream cells—20700/21700. Humanized designs and all-around protections make charging the simplest thing in the world—plug-in and plug-out, safe and sound.

Made meatloaf for the first time with some onion making it a zombie head for Halloween.
Next year want to keep the oven temp lower so the dry ham will look more like face muscles and sculpt the proportions better but this tasted really good!

What a great idea!

I may try a variation on your meatloaf next year… I’m thinking two big black olives for eyes, but will keep the onion teeth.

Have you ever used fast chargers?
Yes, but only for phones
If yes, do you have any concerns about them?
Yes, they reduce battery lifetime. I tend to charge very slowly unless I have some unexpected need. Which actually happens sometimes.

Thanks for the GAW. Smile

I am currently using a fast charger in my onePlus cell phone. It has a special circuitry that the heat generated by the fast charging process is routed to the charger and not to the phone’s battery. The phone never gets hot, so I am not concerned of the heat.

If I use a regular charger instead of the original OEM onePlus fast charger, the phone gets warm as it gets charged.

On the other hand, for something that handles cylindrical cells for flashlights, etc, if I need fast charging, I use my iCharger hobby charger which can charge from .05A up to 10A.

An Xtar-quality, 2 to 4-bay, up to 3 or 4A capability/bay would be a really nice.

Yes, Xtar SP1.

If yes, do you have any concerns about them?
No.

If no, why? I know that it decrease battery lifetime.
But I usually made less than 50-70 cycles in a year. And there are situations when I need charge battery fast.

Yes, that someone could charge a small battery like 14500 or 16340 at 2A or more.

Have you ever used fast chargers?
- No I have never used fast chargers

If yes, do you have any concerns about them?
- I do have concerns about them, shortening the lifespan of my batteries

If no, why?
- I hope and expect that modern batteries are better equipped to be charged by fast chargers
- besides: unless I’m in a hurry, I always charge all my 18650’s at 0.5Amp. And the smaller batteries even lower.

I always think long and hard before I say something really stupid.

Have you ever used fast chargers?
Yes, SV2

If yes, do you have any concerns about them?
No, if cell stays below getting physically hot then I’m happy. Low cost cells mean I’d rather save time and buy twice as often than wait hour and hours

If no, why?
Give us a 4 cell SV2 with voltage display please Wink

Have you ever used fast chargers?
What do you consider a fast charger? Is 3A charging current is considered fast, then yes, I have.

If yes, do you have any concerns about them?
Mainly concerned about rising cell temperatures when fast charging.
