    Happy to confirm that my favorite chargers - The Enova Gyrfalcon All-44 and All-88 handle 20700 cells without any trouble at all![​IMG]

    Nitecore D4, Xtar VC4, Efest LUC Blu6, and HohmTech Hohm Base also work fine with the 20700s.
    The Efest LUC Blu6 can handle batteries even a wee bit taller if needed.

    My old style Xtar WP6 also charges 20700's with no problems.

    I haven't tried in the 7dayshop Multismart 3000 also called the Youshiko YC5000, but from my measurements it should fit.

    There's two different versions of the Nitecore D4. The 2016 version it fits, the 2014 version it doesn't.

    Dunno, yet. I'd like to see them go that way. Long life and high amp has always been kind of the holy grail for mech users, and this delivers...

    Getting 30A CDR out of a 3000 mAh battery without it adding too much size or weight sure does introduce new horizons to that, but the 18650 has been the de facto standard for so long, patience will be key.

    Another problem is with the FDA bullstuff here in the states and TPD in the EU. Getting new mods that can use those batteries will become increasingly harder.

    all 6 slots work so you could charge 6 at a time if needed?

    Good info! I was planning to buy the D4, but noticed (on IMRbatteries) that the description doesn't mention 20700 being compatible. I can't imagine IMR selling an older, outdated model, so I wonder if the description just hasn't been updated.

    The description doesn't mention it, but the 2016 version D4 is still compatible nevertheless. However, the 5-legged iJoy 20700 battery fits in there only barely so IMO you would be much better off going for the Nitecore NEW i4 charger instead, as it has smoother sliding brackets and enough spacing to make it fit a whole lot easier, and also it charges a lot faster than the D4.

    Thanks. I'll check it out out, but one of the reasons I was going for the D4 was the digital display. I'm wondering if I should look into Efest like some vape shops have suggested

    Check out the Enova Gyrfalcon All-44. Digital display, 4 independent slots, wide enough to handle 4 x 26650 simultaneously, and easily long enough for 20700. The Gyrfalcon line is my favorite.

    Also has 1A charging in all 4 bays, and 2A charging when charging 2 batts.

    A display doesn't make it charge the batteries any better. I like the simplicity of the NEW i4 because the more bells and whistles, the easier it can break.

    Anybody know of a charger with a bit longer throw for 20700's? I have a 6 Bay efest and they do fit but a bit tight. Starting to wear on the wraps putting them in and taking them out.
