Details

Good quality Li-ion cells are not cheap so it pays to have a good charger. Brand new in 2014, the VP2 charger is basically the same as the excellent VP1 charger with a few extra features. It can be used as a USB powerbank and has selectable charging current.

Overview

Multi-functional independent channel 2 cell lithium ion (LiIon) & lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery charger with sliding contacts to fit and charge a variety of battery sizes.

Features & Benefits

  • 2 cell independent channel charger suitable for charging 3.6V/3.7V/3.8V LiIon cells or 3.2V LiFePO4 cells in the following sizes:
    • 10440, 14500, 14650, 16340, 17670, 18350, 18500, 18650, 18700, 22650, 25500, 26650.
  • Selectable charging currents of either 250mA (±30mA), 500mA (±50mA) or 1000mA (±80mA).
  • Charge re-activation if cell voltage drops below 3.3V (LiFePO4) / 3.9V (LiIon) when cells are left in the charger to keep ready for use.
  • Uses algorithm based three-phase charging (TC-CC-CV).
  • 0V discharged cell wake-up function - soft charge start > constant current > constant voltage charging.
  • Reverse polarity protection.
  • Short circuit protection.
  • Overcharge protection.
  • IC temperature monitoring and low heat design to prevent overheating.
  • Charging specifications:
    • Input voltage: 5.0VDC/500mA
    • CC (constant current stage) charging rate: 500mA (±10mA)
    • CV (constant voltage stage) charging rate: 4.2V (±0.05V)
    • Cut-off current: <40mA
  • Real time status display and LED charge indication.
  • For use as a powerbank: insert a charged compatible cell and use the VP2 as a powerbank* for mobile devices:
    • USB output voltage: 5.0V ±0.3V
    • Max. USB output current: 1000mA
    • Automatic shut-off when cell voltage drops to ≤3.0V ±0.2V.
      • LED green: cell capacity ≥50%
      • LED red: cell capacity 25-50%
      • LED flashing red: cell capacity ≤25%

*VP2 only operates as powerbank when no external power source is connected.

Package Includes

  • VP2 Charger.
  • SAA, MEPS approved Australian 100-240VAC input plug.
  • 12VDC cigarette lighter car input plug.
  • Manual and warranty card.

    Got this Xtar VP2 from Adam as an upgrade from my Nitecore Digicharger D2. This has to be one of the better chargers available. The current is selectable between 250mah, 500mah and 1amp and the readout clearly displays all the information you require. Being capable of 1amp, the VP2 charges 18650's fast compared to the Nitecore equivalent which takes almost double the time. Recommended.
