The Nitecore Intellicharger i8 is well capable of charging and monitoring up to 8 batteries independently and automatically detecting the power level of batteries to select the appropriate voltage and charging mode. It utilizes Active Current Distribution(ACD) technology to actively distribute its power among 8 slots in an orderly manner to achieve effective and rapid charging. The red/green indicators tell you the charging status- charging in progress/charging completion, making it very easy to operate. And the built-in reverse polarity protection, short circuit protection, and overtime protection ensure reliable performance and enhanced safety.

      My NiteCore D4 has been running fine for year's…

      Just my story with La Crosse but it completely overheated and the screen melted. My eneloops looked like they were about to explode. I was fortunately close by and smelt the burning plastic. It occurred again when I tested whether it was just a one-off thing. Surprised it didn't shut itself off.
      I bought a Nitecore afterwards and it's working pretty well so far.

    Odd that they've created what seems to be a pretty awesome charger/highly intuitive, but haven't incorporated an LCD display into it to tell the user things like how charged each battery currently is etc. So the unit knows all this detailed info about every battery inserted into it, but has no way of reporting that detailed info back to the user (unless I'm missing something?) … I'm not a big fan of green/red lights that are supposed to indicate things based on where/when they appear/whether they flash/etc. It sounds like a really good/efficient charger, and I like the novel inclusion of the USB charge ports, but solely because of the lack of any detailed/'on-the-fly'/mid-charge info on each battery via an LCD display I will not be buying it. I reckon it WOULD be a great product to buy (as a gift or on request) for someone who was not at all tech-savvy (and thus was not really interested in an LCD display/ongoing charge status etc.), and just wanted a highly efficient, useful and safe unit. I suspect it probably is all of those things. No LCD reporting individual battery info/status on-the-fly kills it for me, but for those not interested in that it seems like a good unit.

        I watched the video but it doesn't show an LCD screen,,. What am I missing?

          Yeah I was going to buy a nitecore but I think it is an essential feature to have a display telling you how much it took to charge a battery. Otherwise you end up with a drawer full of batteries and no way to tell the ones that are stuffed.

      The "I" series of chargers don't come with the display, but the equivalent "D" series does. e.g. I2 vs D2, I4 vs D4. I'm guessing they'll release a similar D8 later this year which will have the display.

      Also agreed with your point, there should be a display. I have a Nitecore D4 and it's a great charger.

    Perfect for mounting to the back of your car like this: http://i.imgur.com/42G8WZ0.jpg

    Any views on however well these would be work with 10000mah d cell batteries? Would it be sufficient? Just after some expert opinions?

    •  

      It'll work but the catch is in the specs. Although it is capable of charging 8 batteries simultaneously, it is only capable of 0.5A max to each battery. So 8x D cells 10000mAH batteries will take a while to charge but it'll work. With 4x batteries, it will provide 1A per cell which is generally the recommended rate (capacity/10) for NiMH cells and what I use to charge my batteries.

    My ex left me for a guy who had a battery charger that could charge 8 batteries at the same time.

  •  

    If I didn't have a D4 and D2 which cost this much together I would've bought this instead >_<

  •  

    Need a vibrator deal to go with it then to make all that battery charging power extra sexy.

  •  

    I feel so inadequate with my povo 4 charger :(

  •  

    Wondering is it max 2.1A charge rate over the two USB ports or 2.1A available over each port?

  •  

    Do these come with the batteries? If not, do we have to buy Nitecore batteries or any eneloops? Any recommendations?
    Please forgive my noobness, have been interested in eneloops since the April Fools Gag

    •  

      No batteries included with charger, you can use any brand rechargeables. Low Self Discharge batteries are the better option such as Eneloops, Aldi and Ikea NiMH that is what I use and find them to be good quality.

    I'm gonna ask 2 questions.

    1. Why not buy 4x 4 battery chargers?
    2. Fuk zapals, they won't start to ship to you for at least a month.

    Can anyone recommend me any good 4 x AA eneloops+charger deal please?

  •  

    Has anyone shopped with Zapals before? Any problems (besides long lead times)?

    Looks like the other places have put their prices up….
