Xtar rocket sv2 question

Is it supposed to look like this when charging?

Or more like this?

I would think that the charging rate would be displayed for each slot, as in the top photo, but I’m just guessing.

I think that I have that charger, but it’s buried in a big storage bag with a lot of other crap on top.

HKJ’s test showing only a single amp display

It looks like only one display for current, but what if you do a NiMH at 1A and an 18650 at 2A at the same time?

Head scratcher.

I don’t think that’s possible. I don’t think each channel is independent. Both have to charge at 2A or whatever you select

I guess you are correct.
I was looking to this video from GoingGear and it seems that you can only configure the current for both slots together, not separately.
The scale will have 0.25A on left side then the 2A will be on the right side (with other options in the middle)
