Default What kind of battery charger do You have?

I buyed three different chargers, in my modest opinion, the three best chargers available on the market today.

The first:



this is THE charger for every sized NiCd NiMh and camera LiOn rechargeable batteries.
Among his most important features You will find an amazing built-in battery tester, charging current selector,
cooling fan, display charging status, voltage status, current flowing, and some nice programs for testing cells before charging it.
I have tried many chargers, but this is the only one that recharge a cell safety and fill it 'till the last free mA

Here is the complete specs:

Charges all round cells and 9V-blocks;
Charges most battery packs (Li-Ion + Li-Po);
Battery capacity check (displayed in mAh);
Five over charging protections;
Intuitional handling with only 3 function keys;
Informative, clear LCD display;
Four Individual selectable charging programs per charging slot;
Program for reactivating batteries;
Microprocessor controlled charging and supervision of each cell;
Faulty cell detection and Alkaline detection;
Wrong polarity protection.

The second and the third:



The first from the left is the last version of the well knowed Intellicharge V2 two slots, that many companies has relabeled under
various brands names. This charger works with every chemistry, but I use it only for the RCR123. It is cheap but it do very well
his dirty work

Features:
- Capable of charging 2 batteries simultaneously;
- Automatically identifies Li-ion, Ni-MH and Ni-Cd rechargeable batteries;
- Three charging modes (CC, CV and Trickle Charge);
- Automatically detects battery status and selects the appropriate voltage and charge mode;
- 3 Color LED displays charging progress for each battery;
- Automatically stops charging when complete;
- Reverse polarity protection;
- Compatible with: Li-ion: 26650, 22650, 18650, 17670, 18490, 17500, 17335, 16340(RCR123), 14500, 10440 Ni-MH/Ni-CD,
..AA, AAA, A, SC, C.

The last two are two separated Xtar VP1, the rolls-royce of the 18650 chargers.
The display is nice and sharp, eye-catching.
You can select among three current charging levels: 0.25A, 0.5A, 1A.
Usually I use 0.5A with my Panasonic and Enerlion Professional Line 3400 mAh.
It takes some hours for a complete charging but at the end of the process the batteries are completely cold.
This is a MUST to extend battery life!
I buyed a pair of the same model so I can charge 4 batteries at the same time for my Fire-Foxes FF4 battery-hungry demon
Here is the complete review:

Review of Charger Xtar VP1


The beasts all together




I have also built a little homemade adapter for my 32650 battery:



The wires ends with a rod drilled and a neodimium magnet each, so it is very easy to attach the terminations to batteries with particular shapes.

And as a bonus, a desktop corner dedicated only to the chargers power supply :



Have fun!

Nice reviews! I got the intellicharger i4, and I love it. Not the most high-tec charger out there, but works great.
