    I'd noticed some anomolous behaviour with the XTAR Dragon charger, but only got around to testing it today...

    I have an 18650. I measured it on my multimeter and it came out a 4.14V, which is 98.57% charged.

    I popped it in the XTAR VC4 and it read 4.2V on its analogue display. For good measure, I checked on a Nitecore charger and it read 97%. Both measurements seem within reason to me.

    Then I put it on the XTAR Dragon charger and got 88%. That's way off!

    I think I'll be retiring the Dragon (though I'll miss the large battery bays). Anyone else have similar experiences with the Dragon?

    ive noticed similar.
    charge says full but when put back in again all seem to be between 85-90% charged.
    at least 8 sets of pairs of 30Q and molicel
