The Nitecore i8 multi-slot universal battery charger is one of the best chargers available. The Nitecore i8 features Active Current Distribution (ACD) technology which distributes power among its 8 slots in an orderly manner and allows the unit to monitor and charge 8 battery slots independently. The i8 also boasts intelligent design with the inclusion of two USB output ports which allows the option to charge devices like smartphones and tablets, saving you room on your desktop.
The i8 also features easy to view red and green indicators which gives you the added bonus of being able to view the current charging status of your batteries from across the room. Red indicates charging in progress, while green will indicate charging completed. Built-in safety mechanisms will immediately alert you if the batteries are inserted with polarity reversed or short-circuited. Should this occur, the i8 will stop charging and a red indicator will rapidly blink over the affected slot.

FlashLightWorld Canada Nitecore i8 - 8 Bay Universal Battery Charger Review

Nitecore i8 Using & Observations

The Nitecore i8 caught my eye for a number of reasons. The first one being able to charge eight 18650 batteries at a time on such a small footprint with only one AC power cord. Another feature that was so good for me was being able to operate the charger from a 12 V DC source like the SC4. I have a giant collection of 12 V deep cycle and sealed lead acid batteries that operate ATV lights throughout the house during a power outage. It also has the two beautiful 5Volt 2.1 Amp USB outputs, as I also have a large number of Li ion lights that charge from a five volt source. The only minor downside(s) it has is that if you only charge one battery, The charging current per battery remains the same as with a group of batteries installed. This is, at least how it appears. However, as mentioned above, this charger excels at charging many batteries at once, and placing only one battery in the unit would be a bit absurd! After a power outage or some other use, I like to charge all of my batteries right away, and this unit is perfect to install eight batteries and just let it go!!! Terry Roy Langille
