SkyRC NC2200 thoughts?

I mainly charge Ni-MH AA and AAA and started looking for a new analyzing charger. It would be nice to have support for Lithium-Ion and AAAA size Ni-MH, but they are not required.

I am considering the Vapcell S4 Plus, and the SkyRC NC2200. I was gravitating toward the NC2200 based on SkyRC’s reputation around the MC3000. However, I started to see some videos (not in English, which makes it tough for me to fully understand) that show Ni-MH batteries going up to 1.65V during charge:

Is this an issue? Anyone have any thoughts on this charger? Or should I be getting the Vapcell S4 Plus instead?

The Vapcell S4 Plus will do it all, why bother with the other one?

I’m wary because of my experience with the XTAR VC4SL which also was supposed to do it all, but was actually pretty terrible with NiMH. (Sometimes detected them as Li-ion, 50% of the time terminated charging after only 25% to 50% full).

The Vapcell is a very good charger IMHO, only with very critical or old cells it have problems, but these cells also have problems in other chargers.

Maybe the Opus BT-C3100 is also an option but the cooling fan is a bit noisy.

I have a bunch of chargers and the VC4SL is the worst for NiMH I have. Only my Accupower IQ338XL annoys me also because of the reliability, but before the bays begun to fail it was an usable charger.

After seeing some Youtube-Reviews of the NC2200 I would stay away from it. If the measure is correct it will blow NiMH to 1,7V
