Everything, and I mean Everything
In my opinion you’ll be very pleased with the XTAR VC4. It’s a very versatile charger with several excellent features. It’s what the charger does on the inside for which the user has no control…in areas such as battery safety, that are important. Can charge twenty different sizes of batteries! Each channel operates independently Features a unique 0 (zero) volts activation functionality It will identify a bad or faulty battery prior to charging Features two charging currents; 0.5A and 1.0A A soft-start function eases the battery into the charging cycle Charges IMR batteries, as well as those with flat or button tops Slots one & four are slightly wider, to accept even the largest cell An intelligent circuit chooses the correct algorithm based upon battery type Features protections from overcharging, reverse polarity and short circuit The ability to charge when connected to ANY device with a USB port Place one to four rechargeable batteries in the spring-loaded slots. The charger will do a quick analysis, and the little dials will spring to action! the well-lit dials (remeniscent of the bridge of the Starship Enterprise) on the VC4 immediately indicate what current the inserted battery will charge at. This is the smaller dial, top center, that shows either 0.5 or 1.0 amps. The larger left and right dials, indicate the real-time status of the battery. “CH” below the dials shows which channel you’re looking at. The “CH” lights (1 through 4) beneath the display, are either red or green. Charging batteries are red, whereby charged batteries (and empty slots) are green. The grey button between them toggles the display between CH 1 & 4 and 2 & 3… depending on which slots are occupied. Slots 1 & 4 will always deliver 1.0A to each battery. Slots 3 & 4 will always deliver 0.5A to each battery. If a battery is charging in slot 1 or 4, BUT, there’s also a battery in slot 2 or 3, the LOWER amperage will dominate. This means that the cells in slot 1 and/or 4 will get 0.5A just the same as the cells in slots 2 and/or 3. The display’s backlight can be switched off by pressing and holding the channel button. Another press restores it to full brightness. When the Charge Completes When a battery has completed charging, “FULL” will be displayed under the corresponding dial. At this time, the voltage meter will read the maximum volts of the battery. BUT, in most cases the ACTUAL “resting” voltage of the battery, will be less. This is my recommendation; check the voltage with a volt (multi) meter to know the exact status of the battery. This can also be important if you’ve just charged two batteries that are often used in series…such as 18650’s. Ideally, they should match when placing them in a working device. If for some reason, one of them finished up to one volt lower than the other, a final check will verify that. It’s well worth what you’ll pay for it, and should provide long-lasting service.

Quality Price It Works
CONS
Fingerprint Magnet (Subjective)
When you take this mod out of the box, you instantly feel you have a quality piece in your hand, and you do. The C-Frame sleeve is fitted perfectly with only a minor gap which you could only fit a cigarette paper between, the screen is bright, your not miss-reading that, the buttons are nice and 'clicky' and batteries are easy to fit, even with the supplied tool in the frame. The 510 pin is adjustable and reverse threaded and every atty I own fits flush. But this is the bit you want to know about, does Temperature Control work? Absolutley!! without a doubt, if you get a temperature protected message your doing something wrong! the SXK chip inside these is a good one, it works as it should in both TC and VW modes, the ohm readings are suprisingly accurate and battery life is great. I cant really say a bad word about this mod, it surprised the hell out of me, if your in any doubt about buying a cheap TC mod then dont be, because this does the job intended. Would I buy another 1, if I lost this tomorrow? I'd cry my eyes out first then buy another one, without a doubt!

Great Quality Huge Flavour Huge Clowdz It's got an Octopus on it
CONS
err.......None!
When I bought this tank, the only expectations I had was it was going to be the Goblin with topfill, slight miscalculaton there, What an awesome RTA! the airflow is borderline massive and the flavour production is phenomenal, it may share similarities with the Goblin, but thats where it ends, the juice channels are deeper, the deck is easier to work with and can fill this with minimal fuss or mess AND its got an Octopus on the chimney! The deck comes with grub screws and bite down with ease on any wire in the posts and do not back out, for me thats a great plus. Taking the tank apart for the first few times may seem hard as everything fits together so well, maybe a little too well but after a few dismantles, things do get easier, threads are good and clean, and the overall machining is excellent, and for you Cloudies out there, you wont be dissapionted, ever!

Build Quality Easy to Fill Great Flavour Cheaper than UK Large Airflow
CONS
A little Machine Oil Present Juice Channels (Subjective)
A very well made tank, just like its predecessors, quite a plain look to it, and so, so easy to use, the easiest tank to fill by far, with no leaks. The build deck is large, if your used to Kayfuns you can build on this. It produces fabulous flavor, and is well capable of chucking some serious clouds (If thats the sort of thing your into) with that huge adjustable airflow, when building on it make sure your cotton does not clog up the juice channels otherwsise your favourite flavoured juice will be Dry Hit!. As an owner of both the Lemo and Lemo Drop I can make a good comparason, the Lemo 2 is heavier and possibly a little more pleasing to the eye than the original, and without drip tips Its 2mm smaller, and the top fill is a huge bonus and worthwhile soley on that selling point alone. But the added external AFC is what makes this, and rescues it from being 'Just the Lemo with Top Fill. Would I buy a second one? If it came in Black, then Yes.

Everything Clouds
CONS
Nothing Clouds, not for stealth Vaping
Subtank Move Aside. What a sneaky little tank this is, Smok have done themselves justice with this one, Vapor Chaser Tank..........very aptly named, this chucks the clouds without compromising on flavour, its built well, looks good and dosen't leak, did I mention the clouds, even at 20w it kicks them out. If you have a Fire alarm, do not use above 30 watts or it will go off every 2 seconds. It comes with a replacement glass tank incase of clumsiness and replacenent O rings. The 2 supplied heads are of excellent quality and these have a juice control ring so you can close the head off for those thinner juices so it does not flood the tank, or wide open for that heavy VG juice, either way this works perfectly. Have I mentioned the Clouds? If you buy this tank, then buy this as well SKU: 2290901 (Rebuildable DIY head) it is a must! infact buy 2 or 3 or 4, you cant have too many spares. In short this outperforms the Subtank in every way, Clouds, Flavour and price, this is a budget tank that can go 10 rounds with the big established brands, and beat them to a pulp. Im sure I've not mentioned the Clouds yet.......
