    Default Xtar VP1 or Pila IBC (Chargers)

    Seems to me, the Xtar is the better choice, as it has the real-time voltage/battery level display.

    But then again I don't know anything about charging lithium ions.

    I plan to use it to charge my Panasonic NCR18650PF 2900mAh batteries.

    The price-point is pretty much the same. Any help is much appreciated.

    I'm waiting on my Xtar VP1 right now. From the couple days of research I did I believe it to be the top of the line since the Xtar VP2 has had complaints for certain things.

    I just got the xstar vp1 about a month ago and its a beast. I have a pretty new nitecore i2 and its a pretty solid charger but with a sony 30 amp it takes forever especially with 2 on the charger. The xtar vp1 blows it out of the water, it chargers 2 30 amps in under an hour. Dont get me wrong, im not bashing nitecore, just comparing what I see and I still use both.
