Item Charges

I searched the forum looking for an answer to this and didn't find one, so I hope this isn't insanely repetitive. Is there any way to check to see how many charges remain on an item, such as a toolbox or medkit? I'm not sure how to most effectively use my charge add-ons, when I may not be sure how many basic charges the item might have remaining.

    Basically 1 heal is 16 charges

    So a yellow medkit has 1.5 heals (24 charges) , so its a good idea to add 8 charges to your yellow med kits generally.

    All items are at full charge before the match and will refresh to full no matter how much of it you use if you are able to escape with it.

    I think that's what he's wondering about.

    Well, note that a med kit will use 16 charges to heal you. This means a yellow medkit will heal you one health state and a half of that. This means you could bring an addon that gives you 8 or more charges. Bringing bandages would be the most efficient though. So a yellow medkit will heal you 2 times with this. As for flashlights and other items there really is no way to have an exact number since we are only given a bar that lets us know if it is running out.

    Uhhh..... you can literally see them on the side of the item.

    Apologies for the imprecision of my wording, but yes--whether the item fully refreshes upon successful escape and how many charges an action takes was what I had in mind. The only numbers I ever see next to an item are in my loadout screen, which is obviously the total number of a specific item I have, not how many charges remain. Thanks for the info!
