    Well said. I don't see it as a rant. You made very points that make perfect sense. Yup your right these day's some but not all products are designed to fail after a few or more years, this I accept but don't like it one bit, it is what it is.
    But I'll always pay a little more for 100% quality products that will last through my life time.

    Thank you Spydro, I'm gonna go with your recommendation. I looked at the reviews and there pretty solid for these particular brand chargers but I'll go with the 4 bay ( GYRFALCON ALL44 ) instead of the ALL88 8 bay. Much appreciated as I wasn't even aware The GYRFALCON chargers existed. Thank You !

    A VERY good Charger review and resource site, you will find chargers that you never heard of with EXTREMELY detailed analysis, charts, graphs, and thermal imaging showing hotspots:

    @ralph persico, the SkyRC MC3000 charger is well worth a look. Very high quality, complex and unfortunately expensive.

    It retired my other charger.

    I got mine way back with a Provari. I still use to charge WIFI dog fence collars, two dogs and the two batteries charge every other day. I use a Nitecore D4 for vape batteries, wanted to charge them at a low rate and have a visual rather than red/green light. The Nightcore let's me do that. But the Pila is around six years old, going strong.

    Can't thank you enough for your recommendation for the gyrfalcon charger. It bought the All44. Great option for auto or manual operation where the owner can set each bay separately selecting voltage cut off and charging current. I
    I know my cells are fully charged. With my XStar the read out would say FULL but the voltage read out on my unregulated mods would always read lower than full, like 4.0 or 4.1 or with dual series 8.21.
    Now with the gyrfalcon the mod voltage read rings true to the charger read out 4.2 or 8.4 ( Dual cells in series )
    I use to think the mods had faulty read outs but now I know it was the XTAR VC4 that was faulty.
    Love this gyrfalcon charger. It screams quality. Thank you again Spydro and everyone else for your recommendations.

    I have the Nitecore i4, Efest LUC 4, Zanflare C4, and the Opus C3100. The Opus is my goto charger just because it gives me relative internal resistance readings that are useful in determining health of a cell. I almost never need to charge more than 4 cells at once, so the others stay in a drawer for backup. All are good, but the Nitecore i4 seems to heat up cells much more than the others at the same charge level.:)

    I've never tried the GyrFalcon. It looks to be a good charger.
