This new Nitecore i2 itellicharger is an update of the older i2 and now offers twice the charging speed with a maximum output of 1000 mA while one battery is charging or a maximum output of 500 mA per bay when two batteries are charging.
Other new features include the active distribution technology, which will automatically direct all the power where it is needed, for example if two batteries are in the charger and one finishes charging before the other, the i2 will distribute all the power to the one bay with the uncharged battery.
The expanded compatibility means that the i2 can support 1.2 V, 3.7 V, 4.2 V and 4.35 V batteries, allowing you to charge a large selection of batteries from one charger. The charging voltage can be set independently for each charging bay by using the V button.
An optimised charging programme for IMR batteries monitors the entire charging process to ensure the end voltage is always within safe limits which helps extend battery life. The i2 also has IMR battery restoration feature, to revive depleted 0 V IMR batteries, that is actitvated by pressing and holding the C and V buttons on the charger.
The i2 will intelligently select the appropriate charging current based on the battery capacity and it can also identify non-rechargeable batteries, imediately notifying the user after installation by displaying four flashing LEDs.
While charging is in progress three green LEDs will steadily illuminate and once charging has complete the three LEDs will go solid green.
