Nitecore Superb Charger SC2

The Home They Deserve

The Nitecore SC2 is the home base your rechargeable batteries deserve. It can recharge them quickly when you need them back in action, and can be programmed to trickle-charge when your priority is maximizing their useful life. The SC2 can handle any battery size and capacity you can throw at it, and its programmable recharge rate gives you maximum control over your juice. It's a dream charger for hobbyists, flashaholics, and military/law enforcement. You've already invested in your rechargeable batteries. Now get the charger that will let you maximize that investment.

Choose Your Batteries' Destiny

The SC2 is one of few chargers to boast a 3 amp charge feature, meaning that this can dump some serious current into your cells. Selectable charge for lithium batteries gives each bay a variable output: select from 0.5A, 1A, 2A and 3A of current. Once you have this flexibility at your disposal, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. Low currents tend to maximize battery life since they cause less stress, so the SC2 is the frugal choice if you like to slow-charge batteries overnight. But we all have moments where we need fresh batteries as quickly as possible. Crank the SC2 up to 3 amps and watch it shine! Each slot is its own independent channel, meaning they charge completely separate from each other. You can use slot 2 to charge a USB device instead of a battery by plugging into the integrated USB output. The charger even has an on-board program to rehabilitate IMR batteries that have been completely depleted. (Some less-common types of batteries, specifically 4.35V Li-ion and 3.7V LiFePO4, will require manually adjusting the charging voltage. But the easy interface makes this a breeze.)

Designed for Maximum Safety

Smart charging means the SC2 detects when your batteries are at maximum capacity, so there's no risk of overcharging. Automatic power-off stops the current when the charge is finished. And there are tons of redundant safety features: overtime charging protection; reverse polarity protection; short circuit prevention; on-board temperature monitoring; heat-dissipating design; and fire retardant/flame resistant PC materials.

Great Way to use Solar Power
January 3, 2018
This charger is a great way to use the output from a solar panel to do work and save money!
I put in a small solar installation and was looking for a good way to use the DC from it
without having the loss caused by stepping it up to LINE voltage.This charger fills the bill.
I had to get a cord to plug into the 12 volt DC input, as it was not included but this was
no problem at all. All my rechargeables' and my cell phones iPads etc are all charging for free.
The USB output has made everything very convenient. Excellent quality and easy to use.
  • Charges a huge array of different cells with no adjustments necessary.
  • 12 volt adaptor cord not included.

nice product from the folks at nitecore, great smart charger with manual adjustments for times when your in a hurry or just a long soft charge to prolong cell life,charges many different battery sizes and chemistry's,I only have one small complaint, why did nitecore use a cheap plastic film voltage and amp scale that peels off ??? otherwise I would have rated 5 stars....
  • with charge a plethora of cells to your specification and time constraints, reasonable price,almost a home run but very nice
  • cheap plastic film V&A SCALE
