2 bay analyzing chargers

I’m looking for a reliable 2 bay analyzing charger, but there aren’t too many options out there. Based on HJK’s reviews and chart, I was looking at the miboxer c2-4000 and Allmaybe TC2, with the Miboxer edging the TC2 out due to the lower charging current option (.5 vs .25).

Basically, I wanted a relatively compact analyzing charger that could provide a low charging current for small cells. But, it seems like the miboxer c2-4000 was either discontinued, replaced, or just forgotten.

Are there other 2 bay analyzing chargers out there I should be looking at?

I’m waiting and hoping miboxer upgrades the charger as HKJ suggests could be done:

Because I’ve reached the point where I have a big box of chargers and am tired of buying “almost good enough” devices.
It happens with age, I guess.

I sent a message to Miboxer, but I’m not exactly expecting much of a response. Sad

Maybe I’ll post in the Wanted section…just in case.

You might want to look again at the ISDT-C4. The biggest shortcoming is a lack of sliders which greatly restricts what the C4. On the other hand, it doesn’t have the problems that sliders can cause.

Firmware updates fixed many of the issues HJK’s reported in his review.

HJK tested with version 1.0.0.8 and made a few additional checks with 1.0.011. Current firmware is 1.1.0.16.

Cut and past the release notes:
