I thought I'd made an error ordering so contacted customer service. The gentleman was pleasant, helpful and the torch arrived at its destination as the correct item and in very timely fashion. The recipient was delighted with the item and I was delighted with the service. Thoroughly recommend Torch Direct - they do exactly as the title!

The Fenix ARE-X2 is a dual bay battery charger capable of charging lithium-ion, NiMH and NiCd type batteries.

Compatible with the following batteries:

Lithium-ion: 26650, 18650, 16340/RCR123A, 14500 and 10440.
NiMH/NiCd: AA, AAA

When a battery is inserted to be charged the ARE-X2 will choose the corresponding charging current, the maximum being 1500 mA. While charging is in progress, three LED indicator lights will display the battery status as follows;

One flashing: less than 30% power
One constant-on and one flashing: 30-70% power
Two constant-on and one flashing: 71-95% power
Three constant on: fully charged

This model has the advantage of a USB port output, so you can use the ARE-X2 as a power bank, enabling you to charge phones, MP3 players, etc. The output provided is rated at 1500 mA when powered by a 18650 or 26650 lithium-ion battery, or 1000 mA when powered by a 16340/RCR123A, 14500 or 10440 lithium-ion battery.

When using the ARE-X2 to charge a device, it will initially select the left channel to provide power for the device to be charged. If the battery inserted is not lithium-ion or is below 3.0 V it will automatically switch to the right channel. The LED will flash blue until the device is charged or until the battery fitted into the ARE-X2 drops to 3.0 V. If the battery power level is too low to provide power for your external item it will be indicated by a single blue LED remaining constantly on.

If you need a mains charger or a car charging adaptor, then please see the related products below.

Note: Always use in accordance with instruction manual and read before first use.

Excellent modern design, based around USB charging. No UK/EU/US/Other power adaptor, perfect for international usage. And the dual function for charging other USB devices is a great touch, ideal for camping.
