The Most Suitable Charger for Flashlights: XTAR ST2

When looking for tactical flashlights, I set some criteria on them. That helps me save time and have a clear purpose in mind. For example: Runs on 18650 batteries. That is a must for flashlight users, some of my users friends may use the rechargeable flashlight with USB port, however, if you are a fan of outdoor camping, your best option is the insert battery flashlight. The results are whatever brand you use,
like: SureFire ,Fenix, Anker, Klarus , ThruNite , Maglite…You will have to come out with the 18650 battery for flashlight, and a charger.

But what is the best 18650 battery charger for you? I suppose it can be the XTAR ST2, why is that, we know that when choosing the suitable flashlight, it should be at least 500 lumens and long runtime, ST2 provides a unique experience of charging 2 Li-ion batteries separately and performs a maximum output of 4,100mA in 2-slot. It only takes 30 minutes to fully charged of a 2000mAh battery. So the quick charge powerful ST2 charger, you will be free worry of the flashlight long runtime and higher lumens.

You will also concern about the flashlight must be waterproof, unless it will be harmful for the battery insert as well as flashlight, The XTAR ST2 charger contain Multiple protections ensure safe charging, built-in protection system can effectively prevent anti-short circuiting and reverse polarity protection, overtime charging protection, supplying your flashlight with continuous battery power.

Taking these into account, XTAR ST2 charger prove to be your best friend for your flashlight and 18650 battery.
Hopefully, The ST2 is now available on xtar.cc now. Come in and have a look!

I like the USB type-C, i like the design and i like the temp feature.
But i agree with 1stein, that price is a deterrent for me i can get a couple of 4 slot nitecores and have money left over for beer.

Well done on making a nice charger that i want though, good work.

Definitely a bit of a premium for the temperature sensing and USB-C. Hopefully the newer port drops in price as it becomes more mainstream.

Do we really need another thread on the exact same topic?

I guess XTAR didn’t like the criticism it received in that one. Flat Stare

Maybe Mr. Admin can merge this thread into the old one?

I agree that we don’t need a second thread about the same content.

I've never noticed Mr. Admin ever merging threads.

I think it's something he doesn't like to do, but I could be wrong.

Ehhh, you can go online and buy two of the discontinued VP2s, with car adapters, for way less than that and I own 12 Xtar chargers, so I’m a fan.

Does anyone know a car adapter that can supply 4A?

I have a DashCharge for my OnePlus phone which does 4A but I’m not sure it works with the ST2.
The only reason for me to buy this charger is to charge high speed in my car.

Chargers: 1xBasen BD01 5/5, 1x Gyrfalcon All-88, LiitoKala: 3x100 4/5, 2x202 5/5, 1x402 3/5., MiBoxer C4-12 3/5.
Flashlights: BLF Q8 4/5, DQG Tiny III 26650 5/5, FiTorch MR35 3/5, Haikelite SC26 HD 3/5, Lumintop Tool AA/AAA 4/5, Nitecore LA10, Sofirn C01 BLF 3200k/5600k, Zebralight H600Fc 3/5.
Powerbanks: EasyAcc 26800 mAh 3/5, Xtar PB2 4/5.
Waiting for: (DQG Tiny) 21700 EDCs. Xtar powerbank that (also) takes 20700, 21700, 26650

Looks great!
One DashCharge port would make it ideal Smile
