Super Fast Universal Charging

Say goodbye to long charging times. The NITECORE SC4 is capable of up to a blazing fast 3A speed in one slot and a total charging output of 6A. This four-slot universal charger handles most IMR/Li-ion and NiMH battery types including 18650, 16340, 14500, 26650 and more. Equipped with a USB output as well, the SC4 can be used to charge external devices such as laptops and cell phones.

Keeps Batteries Safe

With intelligent charging features, using the SC4 is as easy as inserting your batteries into the charger - the SC4 does the rest. Both the charging current and voltage can also be adjusted for specialized batteries. A brightly lit LCD screen displays charging status and battery health while built-in overcharging, overheating and short circuit protections keep you and your batteries safe. In the event of a problem, the screen will read "EE EE" to alert users and cease charging.

3 of 5 Second SC4 purchased, first failed at 20 months May 20, 2024
Reviewer: Gregory from Southlake, TX United States  
I'm hoping this new SC4 lasts longer: My first SC4, purchased in Sept. 2022, may have been a lemon because it failed after 20 months of daily use, generally charging two 18650 batteries per day.  I have an I4 from 2015 that's still going strong, but needed the SC4 to charge 18350 batteries in addition to 18650s.  Here's hoping the quality has improved.
