    Best charger available??

    Hey guys ive been using my trusty trustfire tr001 charger (see what i did there haha) and been having no issues at all with it but recently heard they are notorious for overcharging batteries and killing them. So decided to upgrade to a more reliable charger. Whats the best charger out there?? (xtar etc)
    Thanks alot

    I have the Nitcore i4 Nitecore i4 Lithium Battery Charger

    It charges both my 18350 and 18650 batteries and any size in between. Very reliable and cheap too.

    I also have an xtar which just arrived today after a month over the ocean somewhere, works well so far and very small, I'll keep this one at work for emergency.

    The Nitecore does all these: Compatible with 10430, 10440, 14500, 16340, 17670, 18350, 18500, 18650 batteries.

    The xtar only does 18350 from what I can see, although there are a couple of screw things for shorter batteries but not sure what size they would be for.

    I recently got a Nitecore i4 as well, and have been perfectly happy with it.

    Great features for the price, and sounds a lot more reliable than the Trustfires, from what I read.
