How Does The Nitecore D2 Perform?
Excellent performance all round from the Nitecore D2. I have found that my batteries are charged much quicker than the other chargers I own, and this is down to the chip inside the D2 optimizing the charge for the battery in question.
The LCD display, far from being a gimmick, offers a plethora of useful information. In the centre the display switches from how many mAh the charger is currently using, to the current battery voltage of each battery, to the time the batteries have been in the charger. Underneath this the current battery status is displayed in bars.
To the top right is the different charging options available for your batteries. These are adjusted using the yellow mode button on the left hand side of the charger.
The Nitecore D2 will automatically detect which type of battery is in the charger and select the recommended settings accordingly.
Not once has the charger ever got hit or even warm, even after extensive use. Very impressive stuff.
I’ve always been a fan of the Nitecore series of battery chargers and the D2 did not disappoint me. They have all I have used during my last couple of years of vaping and the D2 has become my charger of choice.
Everything you need is here and present in the Nitecore D2, the LCD display is excellent and a particular stand out feature of this charger. With all the safety options contained combined with the LCD readout this gives me peace of mind that my batteries will be charged safely and to the desired voltage, which is all you need from a battery charger.
I highly recommend the Nitecore D2 to anyone in the market for a new charger, this offers everything you need and more with the LCD display an excellent feature in particular. They also offer the D4 which can charge up to 4 batteries simultaneously.
