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.

I would give it five stars but I've only had it a week. Five stars would be for durability. Ask me again in five years.

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.

Non Mainland UK Delivery

You may see this option if your order partly or fully contains lithium batteries that are not contained within the item we are shipping. If your postcode is not part of the Mainland UK for postal purposes then we will determine the best way to send your item(s) and in some cases we may have to cancel the order or offer an alternative solution, this is because Royal Mail and couriers have strict rules regarding the transport of lithium batteries and in the case of couriers certain regions of the UK have increased shipping costs.
