    I love my knipex too. And micro bits are a nice tool asset.

    Cut off the useless (and horrible...) triangular tip that was originally on the left.
    Now it looks better to me.

    I was invited by XTAR to proceed with the test of the new VC4SL charger.

    First of all, I thank XTAR for the opportunity given to me. I personally consider their company a good example of customer care and friendliness, which are quite rare in today's world.
    Their products purchased by me have always lived up to my needs.

    I state that I am neither an expert technician nor a connoisseur of the specific sector. I am simply an end user, and as such I apologize in advance if this preliminary assessment of mine will be sparse and incomplete.

    I briefly tested the product, and summarizing this I think it is a valid evolution of the previous version(s).
    I made a comparison test with the previous version in my possession, the VC4.
    The innovations are many, and I believe the progress / benefits are evident, starting from the check of the batteries inserted in the 4 slots (analysis / discharge / charge is an automatic and quick process) to arrive at compact dimensions and reduced weight; the new display is really a great, valid upgrade.

    The connection to the electrical network (type C) facilitates integration with other devices currently on the market. It should be the standard by now ... but it's not yet the standard for everyone, i see.

    I think at this point that, more than my meager words, photos can be of help.
    A short gallery below.

    In the two pics belows upgrades of display and better visual approach are evident.

    Concluding, the VC4SL will be my primary source for refreshing 100% of my rechargeable batteries.
    Below is a link that XTAR sent me where evaluate the purchase of the unit:

    I remain at disposal of all of you fellows for any further clarifications i could give.
    Thanks for the attention, and thanks again @XTAR.

    Nick

    Under 12 cm overall.
    Not that sharp as it comes out of the factory, so it will have a good refresh asap.
    The blade's spine thickness of this small "cleaver" is really impressive, as well as accuracy and blade play tolerance.
    I'll see how it performs in EDC rotation, in the specific aim it was intended for (as a box opener etc.).
