NiteCore battery charger for M8.

Recommended Posts

Just for information, NiteCore manufactures an excellent USB-powered battery charger for M8 (and M9 and M-E) batteries.  I prefer it to my original M8 'house brick' charger because of the additional info displayed on its LCD, its light weight, and its convenience.  Although I haven't bothered with controlled tests it seems that the NiteCore charger charges my (proprietary) Leica batteries more quickly than my house brick charger.

 

I bought the charger through NiteCore's website, it cost £27 I think and it arrived in 2 days.

 

(For full disclosure I have nothing whatsoever to do with NiteCore - I just want to pass on some good news.)

More good news is always good. Your feet are comfy, knees work, and you are still enjoying the Forum. All well then.

I got mine from a shop in France that was mentioned before somewhere in the forum some time ago. They had a promotion price. Always was looking for an M9 charger to replace the original that came with the M8 but the Niticore is so small and easy. A highly recommended device for M8 & M9 users.

I have one for the M (Typ 240), and it's very good. As it is run off an USB charger, you can also use with it with a powerbank.

I got mine from B&H when my M9 charger developed flashing lights syndrome. Works just fine and is a few grams of lighter than the Leica one. I also find the ability to use USB charging an increasingly useful feature as USB wall sockets become more widely available

Thanks Pete, first time I saw this now!

Ordered one from the German amazon website for 41€.

Now I can charge my m8/9 batteries from a powerbank or in my car.

Seems to be great.

Still pricey, but will consider one eventually. Thanks, Pete!

 

Fortunately I have 120V AC in my car in the meantime.

What is eBlag???

 

73 de 

A slang term for that on-line auction site eBay.

While there are many genuine sales, there are, unfortunately, a number of scammers working the site - hence "blag".

I've been using the Nitecore chargers for M8/9, M240, both of which from B&H, then the one for Leica Q direct from Nitecore's website. Very pleased overall, especially handy for travel.

I got mine last week.

Works great, so I can now charge the M8/M9 batteries in my car or from a powerbank.

Thanks again dear Pete for this advise, and I hope to see you soon in Lyon!

I  may also buy such a charger.  It is unclear to me where on the Nitecore site an order can be placed.

 

Hi, Raid,

 

Yes they seem to have changed their website since I bought mine.  Strangely I couldn't find a way to place an order on the Nitecore.com website but I can through the Nitecore.co.uk website.  Here's a link to the ULM9 on the .co.uk site if that's any use to you?  Otherwise perhaps Amazon?

 

Pete.
