Professional, compact Xtar MC1 processor charger for Li-ion batteries in sizes 18650 and others. The small enclosure is hidden by a fully professional processor charger with a three-stage TC / CC / CV charging process. Charges Li-ion 3.6 / 3.7V cells of any capacity in sizes 10440, 14500, 14650, 16340, 17500, 17670, 18350, 18500, 18650, 18700, 22650, 25500, 26650.
What is the TC / CC / CV charging method? It is a three-stage process of charging Li-ion cells ensuring maintenance of the cell in good condition by charging with the appropriate current at each stage and ending the charging process at the right moment.

The various stages of the TC / CC / CV process are:
- TC phase: cells discharged below 2.9V are 'woken up' with a lower current.
- CC phase: after reaching 2.9V, the cell is charged with a constant current of 0.5A.
- CV phase: when the cell is almost charged, the charger switches to charging with decreasing current until the voltage reaches 4.2V on the cell. After reaching 4.2 volts, the charging process is completed - the battery is fully charged.
- Batteries with a voltage of 4.1V or higher are treated as charged by the charger. To recharge such a battery fully, put it in the charger before turning it on. - Charged batteries left in the charger will undergo a natural self-discharge process. Charging will resume when the battery voltage drops below 4.1V.
- Xtar MC1 charger has the function of reactivation of deeply discharged cells and 0V cells. Many chargers on the market are not able to charge such batteries. Here comes the Xtar MC1 charger, which in many cases allows you to "rescue" such cells. All you have to do is insert a deeply discharged battery into the MC1 charger, just as in the case of normal charging - the charger will detect the unloaded battery and attempt to reactivate it. Warning! Cells discharged below a certain level are irreversibly damaged and their reactivation may be impossible. Avoid too deep discharge of Li-ion batteries - this can lead to a significant reduction in their durability and capacity or lead to their total failure.

- A proof of purchase

Chargers from other manufacturers can significantly increase the temperature of charged cells during charging. Excessive heating of the cells may cause them to wear out faster. When designing the MC1 charger, Xtar went a step further from the competition, solving this problem in a simple way: power from an external power supply was used. As a result, the temperature of the battery charged in the MC1 will increase by 15 degrees.
In the set with the Xtar MC1 charger we get a micro USB cable and a protective cover for the charger during transport. The set does not include a power supply. To power the charger it is enough to use any charger with a micro USB cable, eg from a telephone, or a USB socket or a computer with a free USB port. The recommended minimum power of the charger is 0.5A (500mA).
