    As the first eight-slot charger in the history of XTAR that supports lithium-ion, NiMH and NiCd cells. The XTAR VC8 uses a USB-C input current for a faster recharge of all the batteries, this current can be changed manually in 3A, 2A, 1A, 0.5A or 0.25A, which allows the user to adapt the various currents to the needs of your batteries.

    The charger has two displays and four buttons. It is two partly identical sections.
    Button Mode/Disp.: This selects between current, capacity and IR display, hold down to select grade and store function (Only first section).
    Button Curr.: Selects maximum charge current, Automatically detects battery type and selects best charging strategy

    Additional Features:

    1. Support QC3.0 fast charging, max 3A for a single slot

    2. Charge 8Pcs Protected 21700 Simultaneously

    3. In grading mode, the charger tests batteries’ real capacity, so that users can know whether the battery capacity is overstated or not.

    4. The charger can charge or discharge the battery to it’s rated voltage in storing mode

    5. The charger will automatically identify the battery type, to select the most suitable charging method, so that users don’t need to select manually.

    6. The built-in real-time temperature control protection system makes the battery charging process more stable.

    Passed many international safety and quality certifications, such as RoHS, CE, FCC

    Let’s see how Vic think of this charger


    To sum up, the XTAR VC8 eight-slot multi-function charger is different from traditional eight-slot chargers on the market. Use a type C port to support QC3.0 fast charge and maximum 3A charging speed. XTAR VC8 also automatically detects the status of the individual cell and then supplies the battery with the appropriate current.

    In daily use, all the common lithium batteries can be installed, from 16340 to 26650. If you have many batteries, this VC8 charger will bring you convenience.

    What power adaptor do you recommend to power this charger? My Apple and Samsung QC adaptors don’t work.
    I am using a xtar U1 six U currently but want to be able to charge at the full capacity.

    You can try the adapter that supports QC3.0, like XTAR EU2, EU4. There are also many other similar adapters with different brands.
