The new Nitecore SC2 is the ultimate charger for use with IMR cells and has a host of unique features, sure to be a favourite with Flashaholics and Vapers alike!
With a total output of 5A the SC2 can charge a battery at up to 3A current in a single slot, this means it only needs one and a half hours to fully charge a 3000mAh Li-ion battery.
The SC2 can automatically select the best charging current based on the battery capacity detection, in addition the current can also be selected manually from 3, 2, 1 and 0.5A.
IMR cells have very low internal resistance and may be overcharged with regular Li-ion chargers. To combat this problem, the SC2 incorporates an optimised IMR charging system that is able to monitor the entire charging process, ensuring the voltage is always within safe limits, which in turn helps extend battery life.
Another useful feature of the SC2 is the ability to restore IMR cells. Upon insertion of an over discharged IMR battery, all eight LEDs will blink to indicate it is not ready for charging. By pressing and holding the button over the slot the charger will enter recovery mode. Should the battery fail to recover after several attempts it should be disposed of safely.
The SC2 is compatible with the following Li-ion / IMR / LiFePO4 cells: 10340, 10350, 10440, 10500, 12340, 12500, 12650, 13450, 13500, 13650, 14350, 14430, 14500, 14650, 16500, 16340 (RCR123), 16650, 17350, 17500, 17650, 17670, 18350, 18490, 18500, 18650, 18700, 20700, 21700 (IMR only), 22500, 22650, 25500, 26500, 26650. Plus NiMh/NiCd: AA, AAA, AAAA, C, D.
The Nitecore charger comes with a UK 3 pin plug.
