What charger should I use???

Not familiar with chargers and that’s why I need some advice.

What charger to be use for SONY US18650 VTC6 HIGH DRAIN 30A Li-on batteries 3000mAh? My old Nitecore D2 Digicharge is not doing the job.

Thanks guys! Thumbs Up

Whichever one you get.
Some charge at 3A per. some at .5A’ish per cell.

The slow charge does better job and gives more longevity per battery.

Lot’s out there. I Use XTAR VC4 at home.
Xtar VC2 for car.

I have just ordered a Liitokala Lii – 500 from Banggood.
It was highly recommended by many people on this forum as a good, value for money charger.
Looking forward to receiving it!

I’m not planning on getting any other charger. I was asking because already have and using the Nitecore D2 Digicharge but doesn’t seem to be charging because is taking long time, unless it’s just slow charging like you said.

It is a 0.5A charger > pretty slow. For a drained 3000mA battery it could well take 6+ hours, if it is not malfunctioning.
HJK gives it reasonable marks.
