Nightcore i2

First post!
I have a nightcore i2 charger and some new acebeam 3100mah batteries that have been on the charger for well over 2 hours and are still less than 50% charged.
Am I expecting too much too quick?
Thanks!

Hi Cdog.

I just did a quick search and it appears the nightcore i2 charges at 500mA per battery with both slots in use.

So it will take a fair while longer than two hours for a nightcore i2 to charge a couple of 3100mah batteries.

Nothing wrong with this a half amp works just fine . It just isn’t fast.

The skyrc charger looks very good.

I’m a bit cheap, I mostly use a LiitoKala Lii-500, it can charge up to 1amp per slot which is plenty fast for me.
