    Damn! That's cheap. I have the 2-battery charger that I bought a while ago for more than this price. I might get this one too.

    PS: It's coming up as $19.82 for me though when I click on the link, unless I'm doing something wrong.

    So how long does it take to charge say 4x 2100mAh AA ?

    • +1 vote

      Well, it takes me about 2-3hrs to charge 2x3000mAh 18650's, but thats with a 4-5 year old version without the 1500amp fast charge for batteries this one boasts.
      I think I might get it based on that fact alone.

      EDIT: Fast-Charging is limited to one slot.. and also this one powers slots differently to mine, my estimation would actually be around the 6 hour mark for all 4.
      EDIT #2: I'm not going to get it after looking at it in depth and having a couple reviews in the background… The D4 is by far the better product and it will last you so long that your investment will be given back many many times over.

      For NiMh batteries, the I4 will charge 1-2 batteries at 500mA, so just under 6 hours for 2100mAh batteries. For 3-4 batteries the charge current drops to 375mA, so just under 8 hours.

      For NiMh batteries, the I4 is probably the slowest smart charger that has been on OzBargain. That's both good and bad - the good is that the batteries will stay cool during charging, so you'll probably get the rated cycle life from the batteries. The bad is the inconvenience of a long charge cycle, you have to plan ahead much more than with a typical 3-4 hour smart charger.

      The Nitecore D4 is a little faster for 1-2 batteries at 750mA, but the same 375mA for 3-4 batteries. The D4 also has a selectable 300mA setting, which is good for AAA batteries. The I4 doesn't have this.

      •  

        That doesn't sound impressive at all.

        I would buy the Ikea charger for $15.

        •  

          yes very underwhelming.

          I've got a rapid charge varta one which does 2 AA in 30-40mins.
          alas it's only take 2 batts.

        With our supply of eneloops we just rotate the batteries through and do overnight charges. It's kind of like why I don't care if my USB chargers at home don't have QC - I'll be charging my phone overnight 99% of the time anyway (car and powerbank do though).

    1/3 of the price of nitecore sc4

    Is it 2014 or 2017 version?

    What AA and AAA batteries do people recommend to go with this?

    • +2 votes

      From brick and mortar, Ikea Laddas (the higher capacity ones) are good. Aldi activ energy ones also seem to have decent feedback. Otherwise the ones that I am aware of but likely to have to buy online are Tenergy cells which have good rep, and if course the OzB currency, eneloops.

    •  

      Eneloop, I got mine from groupon with 15% off.

      The Ikea ones a reasonable price from memory and have good feedback

      This charger has too high a current for AAA batteries, unless you always remember to charge four batteries at a time. With four batteries, all will charge at 375mA which is a little high but okay. For three or fewer batteries, some or all will be charged at 500mA, which is too high a current for AAA batteries, it will shorten their life.

  •  

    OK, not sure if this is the same charger (Intellicharger, is this the same?), but this reviewer says there's a heat issue @ 8:42 mark. Don't know.

    5.5% cashback with pricepal for anyone with that, slightly higher than cashrewards.

    •  

      Thanks, it'd be nice if the highest cashback was always listed and not just (what it seems like) automatically what cashrewards gives.

    For anyone remotely curious about battery/health management I'd rather spend a bit more and get the D4 or a Littokala tbh. Or esp say if charging lithium ion batts. Just being able to see what the charger is doing helps with the safety aspect like if a cell is on the way out or not.

    Any deal on D4? with Australia plug?

  •  

    I personally like the look of D4 and I think it's showing in more detail about each battery LCD display in full details…

  •  

    I wonder if this is a real Nitecore and not one of those counterfeits.

    Can this seller guarantee "authentic Nitecore i4" and not counterfeit. $18.65 delivered seems way too cheap to be a authentic.

    It's still made in China….what difference does it make?

  •  

    Can I charge eneloop batteries with this one. The one I have is overnight charger eneloop and doesn't work.

  •  

    afaik you are supposed to charge at 10% of battery mah rating, so for 2000mah battery max charge is 200ma.

  •  

    Please a deal on D4 or SC4?

    • +1 vote

      GearBest is selling D4 at $20.99 USD with cf57am coupon code, and SC4 at $33.99 USD with NSC4 coupon code.

    What advantages does this have over something like the IKEA Ladda Charger, other than pretty lights?

    http://www.ikea.com/au/en/catalog/products/40241314/

    •  

      I don't really have any evidence but different smart chargers are smart in different ways. Like my D4 can charge some batteries that my old Soshine smart charger errors out on.

  •  

    Why there is no one talking about EFEST Luc V4 charger?
    I think Efest Luc V4 is one of the best chargers in Australia Market.
    We are Efest Australia Authorised Distributor,we need some feedback from you guys.

        It is not very cheap. it is often compared with Nitecore D4.
        3 charging modes – .5A x 4 channels, 1A x 4 channels, or 2A x 2 channels
        Can be used as a Powerbank.

        $38.99 including GST and shipping + car charger +3 years world wide warranty.
        We may do promotion in Ozbargain for this charger in the future at the lowest price in Australia.
