The XTAR VC8S is an eight slot Li-ion and Ni-MH charger with USB-C PD3 and QC3 input. One of the main improvements over the XTAR VC8 is that the VC8S can use all eight slots for storage and capacity test modes. And I noticed that 26800 cells fit too!
XTAR actively participates in the torch enthusiast community across multiple forums and social media channels and they noticed a demand for a charger capable of handling a 26800 cell.
The display is easy to read. It shows the manually selected charging current, voltage and capacity. The tachometer-style screen looks cool, but I’d rather see larger numbers for the charging current and voltage.
