XTAR VC8 Dual-Chemistry Charger

Eight channel charger offers high current and a crucial storage mode for your lithium cells

27 available




The Xtar VC8 is an 8-channel charger that supports Li-ion, NiMH, and NiCd chemistries. This charger is powered by USB-C and supports QC3.0 fast charging to maximize input power. A maximum 3A current for each slot makes light work of charging even the largest cells, but the current can be easily adjusted down to 2A, 1A, 0.5A, or 0.25A allowing the user to adjust the currents to the demands of their batteries.

The integrated LCD screen provides real-time information including voltage, capacity, internal resistance, and battery type. Each of the eight (!) channels is monitored and controlled completely independently, so you can charge different size cells and even different chemistries at the same time in complete safety.

The VC8 has two additional modes: grade and storage. Storage mode makes it easy to charge or discharge batteries to an appropriate storage voltage to maximize the lifespan of your batteries especially when they're in transport. Grade mode tests the true capacity of your batteries so you'll know what they're truly capable of.

Capacity/grade of batteriesReview by Badsey
8 row LiOn, NiCd, NiMh charger, says it can go up to C size. Good charger that can charge and test crappy batteries that others will not charge. VC4 is good at a 4 Bay, but the VC8 8 Bay is larger and improved with the test/capacity functions. (Posted on 6/6/2020)
