Annoying buzz
Although this is a good charger, be aware that if you are going to place it near you on a workdesk for example, it will drive you crazy. While charging, the display will cycle through different information. Every time the current voltage of the battery is displayed, the charger will make a light buzzing noise. It is not loud but once you notice it, it will drive you crazy! According to FT support, this is normal so they wont replace it.

My Nitecore i2 has this buzz but has worked flawlessly for two years, my D4 is absolutely silent.

My old I2 had it as well, its a known quirk of it.

Something to do with "vibrating" (resonance) coil elements, there are fixes online for that - hot glue to the rescue !
Using "regulation" as poorly disguised prohibition is criminal. Vaping is not smoking, reduces harm and saves lives.
