The Best Vape Chargers for Safe Charging

Safely charge your 18650, 20700 and 21700 batteries.

Beginners often use the USB port on their mods for charging their vape batteries. Although this is acceptable when you have no other option, consider getting a dedicated vape charger. Your batteries will charge faster, last longer and you will stay safer.

Here’s a list of the best vape chargers you can buy, at affordable prices. When buying these chargers, make sure you select the right plug type – UK or US – or you won;t be able to use them without an adapter.

I also mark some specs with the following:

* Cannot fit two of the same next to each other

Xtar PB2 Vape Charger

Xtar PB2 ($14)

This charger is at the top of my list because I think everyone needs to own one. It uses USB for charging, which makes it very portable.

Plus, it can be used as a powerbank to charge your mobile devices at the same time. However, no support for 2x700 batteries.

  • Compatibility: 18350, 18650
  • Battery Slots: 2
  • Output: 2A*1, 1A*2 
  • Powerbank mode
Nitecore Q2 Charger

Nitecore Q2 ($14)

This is one of the latest chargers from Nitecore, developed with  the vaper in mind. No screen on this, but it does have all the basic protections you can expect from Nitecore.

  • Compatibility: 18350, 18650, 26650*, 20700, 21700, 22700
  • Battery Slots: 2
  • Output:2A*1, 1A*2 
  • USB Slots: None
Nitecore D2 Charger

Nitecore D2 ($20)

This is one of the first vape chargers, and still one of the best I own. You have a large screen displaying important information about your battries including charge level and voltage.

I’ve used this charger for two years without a single issue. I found the screen and safety features to be absolutely ncessary, especially if you are a mechnical mod user.

  • Compatibility: 18350, 18650, 26650, 20700
  • Battery Slots: 2
  • Output: 0.5A
  • USB Slots: None
XTAR SV2

XTAR SV2 ($32)

This is one of the first vape chargers, and still one of the best I own. You have a large screen displaying important information about your battries including charge level and voltage.

I’ve used this charger for two years without a single issue. I found the screen and safety features to be absolutely ncessary, especially if you are a mechnical mod user.

  • Compatibility: 18350, 18650, 26650, 20700
  • Battery Slots: 2
  • Output: 0.5A
  • USB Slots: None
LiitoKala Lii-500

LiitoKala Lii-500 ($28)

This is one of the first vape chargers, and still one of the best I own. You have a large screen displaying important information about your battries including charge level and voltage.

I’ve used this charger for two years without a single issue. I found the screen and safety features to be absolutely ncessary, especially if you are a mechnical mod user.

  • Compatibility: 18350, 18650, 26650*, 20700*
  • Battery Slots: 2
  • Output: 1A
  • USB Slots: None
Nitecore SC4 Vape Charger

Nitecore SC4 ($37)

If you’re a mech mod user, you know the importance of knowing exactly the condition of your battery. The SC4 (Superb Charger 4) holds 4 batteries and has a large display screen.

The best feature here is priority charging, which means that you can manually override the charging to charge certain batteries first. 

The reason this vape charger doesn’t score higher is because it doesn’t take 20700 batteries at all, which are very popular now.

  • Compatibility: 18350, 18650, 26650*
  • Battery Slots: 4
  • Output: 1.5/1/0.75/0.5 A
  • USB Slots: None
Nitecore i8 Vape Charger

Nitecore i8 ($42)

This is one of the newer chargers from Nitecore, feature 8 battery slots and two USB slots for charging your mods or anything else that can be charged via USB.

Although it can charge 8 batteries at the same time, they will charge slowly as the output will be divided equally among them, with a max of 1.5A for a single battery.

No screens, just a red / green LED indicator for each battery. It’s pretty bulky, and you will have to get your batteries in upright. If you have a lot of batteries to charge safely, this would be your best option.

  • Compatibility: 18350, 18650, 26650, 20700
  • Battery Slots: 8
  • Output: 1.5/1/0.75/0.5 A
  • USB Slots: 2
