In this article I talk about the Nitecore Digicharger battery charger D4EU, acquired on AliExpress, shop Shenzhen QSS Electronics Co.,Ltd. This intelligent charger with LCD display loads up 4 batteries simultaneously and is compatible with batteries IMR, Li-Ion, LiFePO4, Ni-MH, and Ni-CD, including sizes 26650, 22650, 18650, 18490, 18350, 17670, 17500, 14500, 10440, 16340 (RCR123), AA, AAA, AAAA, and C.
In 2014 eu bought 3 batteries pairs 18650 mistakenly. The intention was to buy Batteries 14500 for my flashlights, but confuse me. Not to waste them, then a purchase Lanterna Ultrafire 503B for use-the. It turned out that this is the best flashlight I have and the one I use today.
To load Batteries 18650, I had been using the my old WF-139 charger Ultrafire, that comprei em 2010. Despite it being compatible with Batteries 18650, they are the size limit that it accepts and enters with some difficulty. The point is that the protected batteries, like mine 18650, They are a bit longer than the non-protected due to the protection circuit. With time the WF-139 to spoil a couple of my 18650 because of the difficulty in fitting.
I thought then that it was time to purchase a new charger. I already have an excellent La Crosse Technoly Alpha Power BC1000 for my AA and AAA NiMH batteries, but it is not for lithium ion batteries, such as 18650.
Choice NiteCore Digicharger D4EU
I started researching the various chargers available on AliExpress and the Nitecore brand caught my eye. Among the various models available, the D4 It seemed pretty cool. It is compatible with lots of types and sizes of batteries, and has intelligent circuitry to detect the best way to carry them (CC, CV, e dV/dt). The LCD display shows voltage, current, charging time, among other information.
I looked for some reviews and it is well recommended. The D4EU is D4, with the European standard plug, which is compatible with the Brazilian standard. So, the Nitecore Digicharger battery charger D4EU It ended up being my choice.
The Nitecore Digicharger battery charger D4EU It came in its original packaging. Inside we charger, and cable guide. The charger also works on 12V power with car, but I did not choose the version that comes with the cable car as it probably will never use.
On the side we have a couple of buttons: SLOT e MODE, used to change options on the display and adjust some settings.
On the back we have a small sheet, with the types of batteries supported, and input and output voltages.
The detection is automatic for all types of battery, exceto as LiFePO4, whose mode needs to be selected manually, holding the MODE button for 2 seconds. In this case the load is made with 3,6 volts.
The display shows the status of each of the slots at the top. At the bottom it shows the battery status that is selected with the SLOT button.
The information displayed cyclically, and automatically, voltage are (volts), current (mA) and time. You can also quickly change the information displayed with the MODE button.
The maximum current is 750 mA to charge one or two batteries simultaneously. For 3 or 4 the battery current falls to 375 mA. A low current mode can also be selected, holding the MODE button for 1 second. In that case the chains are 300 mA e 150 mA, respectively.
