Nitecore F2 Charger Overview/Review

The Nitecore F2 Charger is a USB Li-ion/IMR battery charger and power bank made by Nitecore. The device can take 26650, 18650, 17670, 18490, 17500, 17335, 16340, RCR123, 14500, and 10440 batteries.

I review the charger after around 4 months of use. This charger has replaced my Nitecore UM20 charger as the portable charger I take with me on my wilderness photography trips. It charges batteries at a great current and is small and compact.
