A 3 cell charger? Are you kidding? I own and love many Xtar chargers. I think your company is going downhill. Very sad if you ask me.

This could make sense along with a Gryphon G180 or a Fireflies ROT66…
But I agree with you, it’s a rather specific design…

"Hey -X3-, do you have a flashlight ?"   "-X3-, can I borrow one of your flashlights ?" 

My Flashlight public album (mods, emitter swaps, eye candy)

Love the simple and slick design, I don’t have any 2 or 4 cell lights. So it could make sense for people who only use 1 cell lights or other products like that.

Another charger that states 21700 support for unprotected cells only. Sad Where’s the problem to increase the slot length, so that all cells could fit?

Why not just add one more slot, so that both the 4-cell and 3-cell users (eg Q8 and ROT66) users can use this.

I think 3A max for single usb input charger is good. Sinnce there are a lot of single, double and four slot charger too, this 3 slot will be one more choice for some people, probably.

Take care of your flashlight and your flashlight will take care of you.

I have 2 3×18650 lights now, this charger would work for them (but my 4-bay chargers work as well).

I like how compact the charger is, and that it just charges.

how does it do 3 amps? what spec micro USB power supply do you need to hook it up to?

also, if it actually does 3 amps can you make a new VC4 with micoUSB to complement the VC2S?

Hi Sir, some of the products are using 3 batteries so that’s why we are producing this 3 bays charger.

Simple and easy operation. Plug and play!!

Because rarely products require for 21700 protected cells and it isn’t that widely used but I believe in the near future, it will catch up

We alos have 4 slots chargers are selling.
In somehow, this 3 slots charger is simpler and faster that others.

Yes, this total output is 3 amps. Well, we use DC 5V 3A wall adaptor

For the new VC4 charger we will collect all the information and see if you add micro USB port on it.

Odd. I would have thought the main market for 3 cell chargers would be all the 3xAAA lights and headlights out there, so it should cater for NIMh and NiCad.
This one is 3.6V Lithium specific so isn’t compatible.

Beam me up!
