XTAR Two Bay Battery Charger List Guide


As long as you stick with a reliable manufacturer like XTAR, youre unlikely to run into issues when charging your batteries. However, you do have to choose a specific charger somehow. Then, you may consider, 2 bays or 4 bays?


Although it might seem like getting a charger with more bays is automatically better, if you only have a couple of electric devices, like vape mods, flashlights and portable radios, you might be able to save a bit of money by getting a smaller but still high-quality charger. And if you plan a trip and need to take a charger, 2-bay battery chargers will be your best choice.


Lets see the best 2-bay battery chargers from XTAR.



XTAR MC2 is really a cost-effective battery charger. It only has two LED indicators to show the charging status. But it supports many popular Lithium ion batteries, including 14500, 16340, 18350, 18650, 21700 and 26650. It is also a good choice for small charging current with 0.25A and 0.5A for both two bays.


With weight only 42g, it is very convenient to carry in your bay. And its micro USB port makes you charge anywhere.



XTAR MC2 PLUS is a upgraded USB charger. It has double the speed of the MC2 charger - able to hit 1.0A for both bays. The LED display has also been upgraded to show more information, like charging current and charging status.


For the battery sizes, it fits from 14500 to 21700. And as it is 6mm wider than the MC2, it can fit more battery sizes for two bays simultaneously.



Compared with MC2, XTAR VC2 is really a great upgrade in the display. It uses a LCD screen display instead of the simple LED indicators. On the screen, you can see the instant charging voltage, charging current and charged volume, which makes you know the charging status very well.


It can automatically detect your battery status and charge with up to 0.5A current for each channel. A very good choice for simple smart charger requirement.



XTAR VC2S is a great upgrade of VC2. It has two independent bays for batteries, and also features a USB output port, allowing it to charge other devices along with batteries. The VC2S also works as a power bank, which is a really handy extra feature. Like many of the top battery chargers, it automatically recognizes the type of battery youve inserted and adjusts its behavior accordingly. It supports pretty much any battery youll use daily, including 14500, 16340, 18350, 18650, 21700 and 26650. It can be used with Li-ion, IMR, INR, NiMH and NiCd batteries.


It either works at 0.5 or 1A for two bays and 2A for one bay, which is great for guys looking for a quick charge on multiple batteries simultaneously. It also has an accurate display of the current charge level, including the internal resistance test when youre charging, so you know exactly how is your battery charging status. It can revive over-discharged batteries, and it has short circuit, over-charging and reverse polarity protection. Unlike most options, this is actually an 18650 USB charger, which is powered by any standard USB port or wall adapter.
