    Recently, XTAR released their new products - BC4 charger and UL1 USB light. I bought them. Now I’d like to share some opinions about these two items.

    XTAR BC4 charger

    Firstly, let’s see the package and appearance. In the package, there are:

    1 x BC4 charger

    1 x lanyard

    1 x USB-C cable

    It has a translucent cover that is dustproof and drop-proof. A ribbon inside allows you to easily remove the batteries. This charger only has simple LED indicators to show the charging status. But that also makes the charger in a very small size, easy to carry.

    BC4 charger is completely different from other chargers of XTAR. It charges 1.5V Li-ion and 1.2V Ni-MH batteries. Of cause, the battery size only could be AA and AAA. The charging current is 0.5A. What I like is the charger will automatically cut-off when fully charged the batteries.

    The XTAR 1.5V AA lithium-ion battery has a capacity of 3300mWh and a discharge current of 2000mA. They can replace the 1.5V disposable batteries. I didn’t have any AA flashlight, so I use them to replace my Ikea batteries for the camera flash.

    There are two additional functions - USB output and LED light. When you need emergency charging for your phones or iPads, just install four batteries into the BC4 charger, and use the charger as a power bank. You’d better use AA batteries I think, because the capacity of AAA batteries is too small. The LED lighting is much bright than the phone flash.

    XTAR UL1

    UL1 is a mini USB light. It is only 15g. There is no built-in battery, so you need to plug it on the power bank or wall plug. There is a metal hose that can be bent arbitrarily, which can realize multi-angle light source control.

    The switch key has single-click and double-click functions, the operation is simple:

    Long press for more than 2S to turn off

    Single-click to light up in turn the white light (60 lumens) / white light (120 lumens) / red light (35 lumens) / blue light (35 lumens) / green light (120 lumens) / red and blue flashing (351 lumens)

    Double-click to switch to white light strobe mode (120 lumens).

    It can be used as a night light. The white light flashing is used for self-defense, red and blue flashing for providing assistance signals.

    I just did a simple test. There are more specifications of BC4 charger and UL1 USB light at the XTAR official website.
