    Here are a few of the most popular ones, and there are also many other brands. Do your homework, read reviews, and search for the best pricing. Amazon, eBay, online stores, local vape shops, etc just Google battery chargers.


    Please post what charger you use for what batteries, and your thoughts on it.

    I use the Enova Gyrfalcon All-44 and Enova Gyrfalcon All-88. Low profile, 4 or 8 bays that will hold 26650s all the way across. Bay by bay voltage and amp selection. Awesome!

    I just got an efest v6 Luc....... It charges anything..... And getting a 6 bay or 8 bay is a must.... I started with 2 batteries now up to 16 ... Get a big charger from the start..... That way you don't buy 2 or 3 or 4 and spend hours waiting n batteries to charge...

    Don't get a 4 amp charger..... For vaping lithium batteries they like 500mah to 1 amp charging...... This balance charges and enlongates the life of the batteries.....

    Actually the 4+ bay chargers split it up so if you are using 4 cells each charges at 0.5 amps

    Opus BTD 3400. It has some cool features that most others lack.

    I will have to disagree
    its the only one I have ever had
    Mine is a 14 months old
    the other day I accidentally put a battery in backwards and walked away for a few minutes, come back and the charger smells like its smoking.
    Long story short -
    2 bays no longer work, all the batteries are fine.

    But it supposedly has reverse battery protection which it seems to have but only for a few moments, if you dont remove it quick enough it screws up the charger

    ive had an Intellicharger i2 for a few years and also use a D2...both have been flawless with charging...I like they only charge at .5 amps and not some super high amp for fast charging..I prefer to use my batteries as long as possible and not premature wear due to fast charging...I think my next charger will be the D4

    Xtar VP4, I love the fact I can charge at .25 amp or switch to .5 for quick charging. Call me a cheapskate, but I will milk the life out of my batteries with the .25amp charge so I don't need to buy new ones. Using Samsung 25r and Some LG brownies. Needing to pick up the LG HB6 for the mech mod so I can start using that with confidence, won't touch the mech till I have the HB6's in hand.
