Still Going Strong
December 13, 2017
This is an amazing charger even if it has been discontinued. I'm assuming the newer version (https://www.batteryjunction.com/fenix-are-c2-plus.html) is probably as good or better than this one. The crazy thing about this charger is that it can charge batteries that none of my other chargers will have anything to do with. I don't know what kind of algorithms they have put into this particular charger but IT JUST WORKS! NiMH that show 0 volts start charging and a particular kind of battery that has an internal sensor that disconnects the battery with other chargers (and consequently never fully charging the battery) charges just fine.
  • Charges seemingly dead batteries
  • Wish it could handle D size batteries

Works well, compact.

This was exactly what I needed, a charger that handles AA NIMH and the LIFeSo4 18650 batteries for my flashlight.

The display is clear, gives you voltage SoC for *each* battery, and charge progress on bar graph. Charge times are reasonable, if not super quick, but that's a good thing for battery longevity anyway. No scary heating observed either.
  • Does the job quietly, clearly, and without taking a ton of space.
  • Only 4 slots, I'd buy an 8 slot version if they made one.

Best Charger I've Found
October 11, 2016
I have several different chargers to handle the various rechargeable batteries for a number of lights, radios and other battery operated equipment. The Fenix ARE-C2 is hands down the best for charging different size batteries simultaneously. The digital display is very useful for monitoring charges and charge times. I am very satisfied with this purchase.

Big improvement over what I had!
September 27, 2015
Good charger. I had my eye on another but opted for this one first. Will probably try the other too.
  • I like that I can place the batter in the charger to charge and let it remain there until needed.
  • Nothing yet.

Will this charger charge a 10440?
1 Answer
No, the Fenix ARE-C2 does not charge 10440 batteries, as it only charges Li-on: 18650, 16340, 14500, and 26650 batteries. Also it charges Ni-MH: AA, AAA, and C batteries. The XTAR VP2 and Nitecore D4 Digicharger chargers will indeed charge 10440 batteries.
