The new Nitecore F1 FlexBank charger is an innovative charger / power source built with a lightweight housing.
The Nitecore F1 can charge a range of Li-ion and IMR batteries, including the following cells: 26650, 18650, 18490, 17670, 17500, 17335, 16340 (RCR123), 14500 and 10440. The FlexBank can also receive power from an external device such as a solar panel, through the charger's Micro USB port. In addition, the 1A current Micro USB can charge external devices such as mobile phones.
The charger is capable of charging a USB device and storing power in the battery at the same time. When the input current is not sufficient, the F1 has been designed to prioritise the charging of the external device and store surplus power in the battery.
The F1 has an array of beneficial features including a smart multimeter which reports battery voltage, accurate to 0.1V, with blinks when a cell is installed. When in power bank mode, the indicator LEDs display the battery power and charging status in different patterns.
The FlexBank automatically identifies the battery type and selects the charging current and mode accordingly. It reports battery voltage upon installation of the cell on the smart multimeter and activates over discharged batteries.
Weighing just over 30g, the F1 is a compact, versatile charger that is perfect to slip in your bag when you are on the go.

Single recharge device for 18650 battery. Does what it says. Can also be used as a power bank! Doesn’t come with a lead but everyone has an abundance of those anyway. Excellent service from flashaholics

Seems to work very well - an 18650 AW cell will fully charge my phone (SONY XPERIA Z5) once per charge, but being able to plug the device in to the car or computer to charge it back up again is very handy. Since I always carry 18650's in my bag, I will always be able to charge my phone and other devices, without carrying the costly charger packs that I used to use.
