    My fancy Golisi 8 port battery charger blew a gasket this morning so I need a new 8 port charger that handles 26650's, 20700's and 18650's! Any recommendations? I loved the display of the Golisi but won't be getting another one seeing it's the first charger that stopped working completely. :-(

    I've had my eye on the Efest Luc Blu6 charger. It has a feature where you can see the charge status of your batteries on your phone via Bluetooth. I like toys :--P

    Afrivape currently has them

    I have had my Efest Luc Blu6 now for just over 3 years with no issue. I used the Bluetooth feature perhaps once or twice.

    @Rob Fisher - as a matter of interest, what about those Nitecore 8 bay chargers that stand upright?
    Have you ever tried them?

    I am also looking for a new charger - nothing wrong with my Nitecore i4, got it soon after I started vaping and its still going strong - but I want more bays so am looking - but am in no hurry

    Hi Ho @Silver I haven't really given that one any thought... my first Nitcore charger was pretty crap so I have steered clear of them since... it's quite strange that there doesn't seem to be any decent new chargers around when there are millions of vapers around...

    Why not just get a extra 2 bay charger or another 4 bay. Surely both wnt go poof on the same day. And the 2bay can then also be used for travel. My 2bay Golisi works great and sometimes I have left batteries charging in it for two days without problems. It work with usb so also great, can charge in car also when camping etc.
    I personally think these 6-8 bay chargers cant handle the amps/heat etc when charging so many batteries at once. Even maybe some 4bays.

    They are not the best. I had had several friends who had to chuck them in the bin or return under warranty.

    Yeah mine has been running like a champion. and the standing up thing makes gettig cell's in and out allot easyer if you have only one hand available.

    I really hopes mine doesn't decide to quit on me. I love the thing.

    My 8-bay Nitecore has been in use for a long time without any problems. Had the 4 bay until my collection grew to fast.

    That review made my day. To be fair the only nitecore that crapped out on me also drank a large glass of coke, so I am sure that had something to do with it.

    Very happy with my Nitecore I8. Almost a year in and I have had no hiccups with it. I have an old Nitecore D2 sitting as backup in my office, also working fine, and then I have a 4 Bay Efest Luc V4 that's been going strong for a number of years now. I replaced the Luc V4 with the I8 because the V4 has a travel adapter, so I use that when going away.
