Poor Design!!
April 22, 2015
Works Great for everything but "C" batteries , the main reason I bought this charger! There are only two of the 4 bays (Slots) That will accept "C" size batteries. That isn't the reason I only give 2 stars. The poor design is because the 'C" batteries wont stay in their bay slots, they pop up and lose connection. I have to place a heavy book on top of batteries when I want to charge my "C" batteries and I would imagine the "26650" would have the same issue but I can't say for sure about the 26650 but there diameter are the same as "C". Secondly It gets HOT! No vent slots for heat to dissipate..
Pros:
Works for everything but "C" size diameter batteries. Nice display, Its pretty.
Cons:
Poor design! Gets Hot! No air vents. Display can only be viewed from an angle.

No regrets.

Came highly recommended on the forums. Has given quick charges. Easy to tell what stage the charge is in. Charges Li-on and Ni-mh batteries simultaneously. Great charger.
Pros:
Backlit display. Easy to use. Charges multiple types and sizes.
Cons:
None.

ARE-C2
December 23, 2014
I bought this charger to charge C sized NiMH batteries. The display and charging voltage is nice, but it is physically impossible to charge 4 C sized batteries at the same time. It will hold 2 C sized and 2 AA at the same time, but even then, the C sized batteries must be positioned very carefully into the slots or they will not make a proper contact.
Cons:
This is poorly designed to accommodate C sized batteries.

An Awesome Charger - your rechargeable batteries deserve this
December 12, 2014
I have been looking at chargers and reading reviews for a full one year, trying to decide which charger to get. Hobby dollars are tight for me, but I believe in buying the best quality even if I have to save for it. After sifting through all the reviews - reading between the lines, checking and cross checking I decided to get Fenix ARE-C2 (also my fiance bought a Fenix BC30 LED Bike Light and I was very impressed with the quality). I read on some other sites that something about the LED display but when I got mine I found the display quite perfect. It is also very nice to show the voltage of the battery from the minute your start charging all the way to when it's full. The other thing about this charger is the build quality is very good, the way battery bay slides open feels very good and it's easy to put batteries in and take them out, even the 18650's which I understand not to be the case with some of the other chargers. And of course you can put any battery in any bay.
Pros:
Charges great, individually displays each batteries voltage while charging, excellent quality, easy to use, charges fast
Cons:
n/a

Simple "idiot proof" Charger for all common batteries
November 1, 2014
I have numerous chargers but they are all specific for battery types or require input for discharge/charge rates etc etc. All fine for me but was "just too hard" for the simple folks in the family. This charger takes all the guess work out of charging and stops the rest of the family from asking "dad can you charge these batteries?" I have been using this charger for a couple of weeks now (thats a few dozen batteries in this household) and it all appears to be going well.
Pros:
Any one can use it without having to be a battery guru knowing chemistry - charge rates - configuration. Simple easy to use. KISS Keep It Simple Stupid, what more can I say
Cons:
Does not display mAh or allow discharge, cycle or reforming batteries etc but I have other chargers for these tasks (MAHA C9000)

Outstanding piece of gear
September 14, 2014
I have several 18650 Li-Ion batteries that were given to me by a flashlight manufacturer along with four chargers also given to me by the same manufacturer. Over a period of time, none of the chargers would charge to batteries, so I didn't know if it was a case of bad batteries, bad chargers, or both. After reading all of the reviews, I chose the Fenix. It was a great choice, as I was able to bring all of my 18650's back from the dead (except for one, plus all of my NiMh EverReady and Duracell AAA's that also stopped accepting charging from the (store bought) chargers that came with the batteries. Bottom line, the chargers that are usually supplied as part of a blister pack with 4 AA's or 4AAA's or even 2 18650's ARE ALL JUNK. Buy this charger and throw the others away. Beats trying to replace all of your batteries!
Pros:
Individual monitoring / charging for each of the 4 bays. You can put in any combination of AAA, AA, or 18650 and this charger will monitor each battery's capacity and give you a visual bar graph of each battery's progress.
Cons:
Haven't found any yet.
