I take an in depth look at the latest 4 slot charger from Nitecore The SC4 Superb. This model features some major upgrades compared to the D4 including up to 6.0 amp charging (max 3 amp per slot x 2), internal resistance test, USB output and a revamped LCD display and larger slots. How does the SC4 Superb hold up I compare it to the D4 and test the thermals/termination voltages.

  • Hello Mr. Baz hope you are doing great and safe from covid 19.

    I have few doubts to be clarified.

    1. Should batteries (rechargeable)be removed from flashlight when not in use. For example if I use my flashlight once or twice a month only.

    2. Do batteries drain out in flashlights when not in use?

    3. When are the chances of a rechargeable battery to get leaked?

  • Hi bro. I am a new visitor to your channel. I really like the way you review and to the point which led me subscribe your channel without a second thought. Indeed you are doing a great job and you deserve millions of subscribers.

    I would like to ask that I usually use 18650 batteries only from thrunite as I have few of the thrunite flashlights. Need your advice as to which is the best charger in your knowledge for 18650 li ion batteries. I really like the nitecore sc4. But do u have anything better than this in your mind? Or this is the best one.

  • How is this the first I've ever heard of this particular Nitecore charger? I bought an I4 way back in 2011, and it was my only charger for 6 years, til i damaged it and bought an Xtar VC-4 as a replacement. Although the VC4 has more comprehensive charging info than the I4, ive had some frustrations with it that i didnt have with the i4. But ^this new Nitecore charger looks like a great step up.

  • hello this charger can test the batteries, I have a liitokale lii-500 that does it. I need to understand how many mA can still deliver 18650, thanks

  • Precision charger with a very clever charging algorithm. The voltages are correct until the third digit after the decimal point of a laboratory voltmeter! Something very rare in Chinese chargers. I recommend it to everyone. In my version of 2019, there are no errors in the calculation of the capacity received by the battery when charging. The only downside to me is that I have 16 pieces NiМh AA size and they do not contact well, I have to put magnets for better contact.

  • Hi Mr. Baz. I Have a question for you. I bought this charger about 4 months ago. Worked always well. But recently I put two LG 18650 3000 batteries and one told that is poor, I left them charging and then an error on display and some sparks on the battery that was with the poor status. I disconnect the charger from power removed the batteries and after a minute connected again and was not working. Now it is on warranty service. Well if we see a Poor indication on a battery should we remove it fast ? And never use it ? Other question is how the Recovery mode works ? We enter this mode only after the batteries are in right ? pressing the two buttons for a while. Then what we should see on display and what to do ? Thanks for the good review that made me bought this charger device. All the Best.
