PROS
Inexpensive Power output is as advertised
CONS
Didn't quite fit the mounting holes in my car.
I bought this to install in my car, replacing the typical accessory jack. It fit easy enough, though with some slight (relatively easy) modifications. The cap is nice, even for use in a car, to prevent dust and other debris from getting inside.And the LEDs are great for evenings when you'd otherwise have to turn on an interior light to find the ports. The blue light is also a bit easier on the eyes at night (IMO). I also tested the current rating using a USB current sink and power meter. My current sink only goes up to about 3.8A, but both ports handled this easily no drop in voltage. Unfortunately I couldn't test the full 4.2A, or both simultaneously, but dual-port chargers like this typically just use a single boost converter, and the per-port rating is half the converter's total output current. i.e. you can use all 4.2A on one port, or split between the two.

Nice thick vape cloud, lots of flavor, high tank capacity, sturdy build, easy to disassemble, does not leak from normal use.
CONS
The biggest and only problem I have with this tank is that top filling leaks a lot.
I'll just get this out of the way first, top refilling this tank leaks A LOT! I've looked online and tried about half a dozen or more suggestions, but no luck. Top filling just leaks. So unfortunately I've resorted to bottom filling it. It obviously defeats the purpose of buying a top-fill tank, which is why build quality got 7/10, otherwise it would easily receive a 10. So on to the pros. This is my first dual-coil and I have to say I'm very much liking it. It produces a very good, thick vape cloud (see below), high flavor, and easy draw. It's a very solid build. The parts fit snugly, no leaks during use, and the tank size lasts me about 4 days. Comes with spare O-rings/gaskets and attachment to run single coil. One thing I think I'd change though is having a few discrete airflow positions so you couldn't accidentally move it. It doesn't happen often, but is just a suggestion. I almost gave up on this because initially I was barely getting any vape from this. I knew it had to be due to something I was doing wrong, so after a few weeks finally figured it out. Here's the 3 things I did in order of importance. 1) Raise the coils above the airflow intake. A good rule of thumb is that you should just see the bottoms through the hole. This is so that incoming air can flow up through the coils from the bottom. Lowering the coils means air is coming at the coil from the sides. 2) Reduce the amount of wick. Initially I was both packing too much in the coils and cutting it too long. The density should be such that you can easily pull it back and forth inside the coil. The length should be just enough to reach the little dimples below the coil on each side. Too short and it could cause leaks, too long and it will restrict juice flow. This guy does a good job explaining how to wick it. Starts around 14:50. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7A42GZ5gYFU 3) Use smaller coil diameter. I'm not 100% sure this is necessary, but I typically did 3-3.5 mm on my other tanks, but reduced this one to 2 mm and works great. Where the first 2 are pretty much a necessity, this one I think you could play around with. All-in-all I'm extremely satisfied with this tank and highly recommend it.
