Heavier, larger and more expensive than the Odin 250C (which is also dual 21700s)

well it's within 10 bucks of the odin 250c in my world.
I got it because it's way cheaper than a guitar and it can handle larger tanks/rda's.
I'd prefer a quad or triple 21700 though.

Left-over boxes, I believe, is the biggest consideration. Most mainstream vapers aren't ready or willing to deal with lipos, so instead of another few thousand of those, they decided to be more practical, while still appealing to the "giant tank" crowd that SteamCrave has always primarily catered to.

DNA 250C Chipset, upgradeable firmware and the protections. Idk if I always trust the validity of the weight here because whoever is listing can weigh things differently or simply carry data over from another SKU of the same mod that comes with a tank and not thinks about if someone else weighed it with or without the tank, or even whole package with box, who knows.

Hey, another advantage is the battery door. The Odin has a pretty poor one when compared to other bottom loading "medium end" mods. The Lipo version of this mod has a very secure, solid magnetic door, and I expect this 21700 version to be the same.

Still, for 28mm atties or smaller, I'd choose Odin for portability and ergonomics.

one thing about this one is that it takes a few hours to charge it via the devices USB port and it only charges to %99.
A few videos pointed this out and I've seen it myself so I bought a dedicated lipo charger for $50 and it fully charges within 20 minutes.

Does anyone know the dimensions of this?

I imagine that as its Steamcrave device it will be on the large side, but if anyone knows the max diameter tank it can take without overhang I'd appreciate it.

The dimensions are in the description but-
Asgard RDA 30mm = no overhang
SteamCrave Titan V2 or Valhalla 40mm = overhangs about 2-3mm on each side

Thanks. I somehow managed to miss the listed dimensions, I must be having one of those days.

The only DNA250C mod I have is the Dovpo Riva, but the absolute max size it can take is 28mm. this looks promising, but I'll wait to see if FT actually get it in stock

Some just don't want to dabble into the Dark Arts of LiPo packs... Some are 100% afraid of DIY'ing their stuff and mishandling LiPo packs and go boom.

Smoking is Dead, Vaping is the Future, and the Future is Now... So I will ask a percentage of your sales for each device review I do.
