Almost a good alternative to the Lii-500. Has the 4 Independant battery charge status display and touch control, which the Lii-500 lacked. And it has most of the good features of the Lii-500, like the discharge and NOR tests(to measure battery capacity). But, looks like it lacks the almost vital internal resistance measurement, which in addition to the NOR test can help find fake batteries.
Pity... could have been a great buy if only...

Also, there's no mention of it being compatible with 20700 & 21700 cells.
It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

Strange!
I ordered this (same description, different SKU) on 4-7-2019 SKU 9699708 Authentic LiitoKala Lii-500S 4-Slot Smart Battery Charger (EU)

The Ft description states:

Output current
Lithium battery charging current: 500mA*4 /700mA*4/1000mA *4 2000mA *2
NiMH battery charging current: 500mA*4/700mA*4 /1000mA*4
Rechargeable battery specifications: 26650, 21700, 18650, 18350, 20650, 14500, AA, AAA, etc.

Before ordering I read a little about it here, they also said that 21700 should fit according to a different shop's details.

I'll let you know if there really is room for **700 batteries when it arrives.

Great.

I'm simply going on the current FT product description. Wouldn't want anyone to order on assumption, and be left high and dry.

You're right it is strange that the listing of one (plug type) SKU differs from another!

I found this video, I don't understand the language but at 3:20 min. he puts a 21700 battery into the Lii-500S charger and demonstrates the charging modes etc.



Edit to add:
The Littokala product page for the Lii-500S.
