18350 is too small to fit this, or am I doing something wrong?
My Nitecore charger has just arrived, and works very well with 18650s. But I also bought a pair of 18350s, and they are too small to be held in the charger. Are we sure this charger is really compatible with 18350s, which are not listed on the box, or is there a "fix" for the problem? I'd hate to return it.

This is weird, which 18350 are you using ? My 18350 works perfect in that same charger.

I bought the Ultrafire XSL 18350 1200mAh 3.7v . These: SKU: 1053201

They seem to be 34 mm long.

What kind have you got?

Chemocool, I've just realized what I've been doing wrong. I am a senile idiot...of course they fit....senile idiot I am.

I can be a hopeless case sometimes...

Arrrgghh, what did I do wrong? I hate to admit it, but I was trying to put the batteries in the wrong part of the charger...very difficult to describe in words. In the charging channel, you have a connector at one end and an expandable, spring-controlled second connector, and between the second connector and the second end, you've got an empty space. I tried putting the batteries in the empty space, and obviously the spring connector wouldn't stay put and there were no connectors, and the spring end kept springing back up...

It was really a I-need-a-new-brain" moment when I realized that OF COURSE I was doing it wrong. And the stupid, dumb, really knuckle-brained thing was that I had just finined correctly charging a pair of 18650s. So like, what was I thinking????9l'f4=\

Thanks Magggie. Sometimes stuff just.......happens! At lease we know it's not the charger. Now if Hong Kong post just gets itself together, maybe we can get what we paid for.
