Lots of sizes and battery types Auto-senses battery types No settings or way to screw it up - just plug it in
Great charger, arrived exactly as advertised here. It can charge the two bays independently, and it auto-senses battery type and adjusts automatically.

Build quality is perfect No copper or plastic inside chamber Awesome deep juice wells Great flavor and good vapor quantity
CONS
Location of air holes under coils
Build and finish, threads, holes, etc. on this are perfect. I can't see how an authentic could be any better. This thing produces great flavor and dense vapor, and the deep wells let you drip a ton of juice in at a time. The downside is the location of the air holes under the coils means it leaks a lot. You get juice moving around inside or condensing off the inside of the cap, which lands on the upper surface then flows into the holes. Also, if you try to drip without taking the cap off, if you don't hit the center of the well, you can wind up dripping directly into the holes. I definitely recommend it, and you'll love the vapor, just have a paper towel handy.

Great fit and finish
CONS
Internals of button are a bit rough
Fantastic mod. When assembled it's hard to see or feel the joints between tube sections - they're much less visible than the website pictures. Hybrid adapter fits perfectly. Threads are great and clean. Only complaint is that the button internals were rough, and caused the crunchy button problem. Some light sanding and polishing of the two halves of the button worked fine, it's very smooth now. Button throw could be longer (maybe just by using a thicker delrin ring).

Charges tons of types/sizes of battery Quiet, no buzzing Switches to higher amp charge automatically
Great product - charges lots of types/sizes, easy to use, and it's quiet and dependable. Came in authentic Nitecore packaging. Been using a Nitecore i2 almost continuously for over 2 years, and it's still going strong - this one looks to be the same build quality and performance.

Good airflow No leaking
CONS
Build quality on this sku is poor Very small chamber Cheap insulator easy to melt Tank doesn't seal Not hybrid-friendly
Lots of capacity, good airflow, it's not top-fill but it works well and isn't too much of a hassle. This (along with the Lemo2) is the only RTA I've tried that hasn't leaked at all. However, there are two major problems: the chamber is extremely small and therefore very difficult to build and wick; and the build quality on this sku is very poor. The chamber-in-chamber design means the inner chamber is very, very small - a 3mm coil might be possible, but it would be nearly in contact with the center post and take up all the space between the center post and chamber wall, blocking the airflow. Even at smaller diameters, longer coils come very close to hitting the chamber, and there's consequently very little room for wick. This limits your build resistance, and sets you up for constant rebuilding trying to find the right size and wick quantity. As for build quality - on the model I received the chimney/chamber is too long, meaning the tank is too short, and doesn't seal against the deck and topcap. An oring from another atty above the tank stopped the leaking, but it's not a stable seal. The insulator is made from cheap brittle plastic, and is very easy to melt in such a small chamber. The four little tabs on the side of the chimney are poorly placed, and partially cover the wick grooves in the deck. Also, the 510 pin is too short - not flush, but close enough that I wouldn't risk hybriding it. Finally, on my latest try to get this thing to wick well, one of the side posts stripped - got it to grab with a small piece of fine kanthal, but I don't think I'll be trying to wick this thing again.
