If you're like me then you like your devices to do exactly the job they're designed for - nothing more, nothing less, and that's exactly what the XTAR MC1 accomplishes. The MC1 is a single-port battery charger that charges at 0.5A current for lithium-ion batteries and can charge up to 13 different battery types. This charger doesn't have all the bells and whistles of other chargers, and it's not supposed to. Simplicity is the MC1's main objective. This USB powered charger is super small (under four inches in length), and slim so you can pack it along easily with the rest of your belongings on a trip or keep inside your tool box. Unless you require the recharging capabilities of an entire police department, you probably don't need, or even want, a 16 bay charging station. That's why the MC1 is such a practical and affordable option for most flashlight owners.
That being said, don't let the minimalist design and small stature of the MC1 fool you, it still has all the capabilities of a top of the line charger (well, minus the LCD screen). Constructed with fireproof ABS plastic, and open air cooling design makes it so your batteries, your charger, and you will be safe from any overheating or malfunction. The MC1 offers zero volt activation which slowly trickles in current to dead and over-discharged batteries while also providing reverse-polarity protection so you'll have all your bases covered. The spring loaded contact completely eliminates the need for spacers, just slide in the battery and the contact will position to make a safe and secure connection. Best of all, the MC1 is USB powered, so you don't even need access to an AC wall outlet to charge your batteries, just plug it into a computer or any other powered USB location to start charging up.
