Length Batterie indicator comes with a catch
+ Design-wise, it is IMO the best of all 1300 mAh batteries. Reduced, sleak, clean. I could be an Apple product. + The entire haptic is just great. + With eGo-threaded atomizers there is only a single break in diameter, while all the others have the knob in an "extra area" with less diameter. + Btw, the knob! Just beautiful. Almost entirely plane with the housing it does not only look good, it is also less likely to fire by accident if you put it in the pocket (still you should better turn the battery off for that). Still is is recognizable enough by the fingers in the darkness. The mechanic feels great. Not too easy or hard to click, no rattle, just perfect. + The LED ring around the knob is an unobtrusive beauty. If you put your thumb all over it, no one will see any light. +- The battery shows the remaining capacity thru three colors in the LED ring. Big plus! But there's a catch... ATV-measured: Light blue = 100-50%, Green = 49-3%, Red = 2% or less. That's a little minus. They should have made the red light come at 15% or so. At 2% it's quite a bit late. When it turned red, I could make around 15 puffs, or about 0.1 ml liquid until it was completely discharged. This means, when it's green and you want to go out of the house, you can't rely on your battery. It could have only 3% of it's capacity left... + The dial is a tiny bit more sturdy than on my other Spinner/eGo-Twist style batteries. That's a good thing. To me it could be even a little bit more sturdy, but I think the danger of accidental volt-de-adjustment is low with all of them. + Theadings are clean and well. + Rich choice of colors available. + The ATV-capacity test went well enough, so there's also nothing to complain (look in the discussions sections of the Stainless Steel version (SKU 1643506) "How much I could vape with it"). - A minor problem is that common beauty rings for 510-atomizers do not perfectly fit design-wise. However, any other 1300 mAh batteries do not really look better with a beauty ring... Still, it would be great if FT could offer proper beauty rings for this battery in silver, or even matching all colors. - Size: With that extra centimeter, compared to the eGo-C Twist (SKU 1445400), it is not possible to put this in eGo cases with a common clearomizer attached. The only clearomizer which fits is the Evod-C (SKU 1536400), which is 64mm in lenght. Most clearomizer are 70mm or longer... And even with the Evod-C still only ONE Ecig fits, in the middle of the case, because it's a rounded case: SKU 1353504 Now I have a really hard time to decide between buying more from this one or the eGo-C Twist. This one sets the bar design- and mechanical-wise, and even has a capacity indicator, although with a catch. The eGo-C Twist is less sleek, but a no-brainer on the go because it fits with quite any clearomizer into the eGo cases. All in all, it seems I need a new case! :-) Lastly, I wish the smaller mAh-versions would be made like this, especially the dial is not usable on them. Then I'd buy them, too.

+ Small, especially for the provided features. + I was skeptic about the square design, but after 5 minutes I already favored it over my round eGo batteries. It really holds very nice in the hand. And it can't roll away (and fall down). + More features than the other, but not overloaded (like the eVic). Just the really useful things. + The user experience is very well thought out: Just three clicks to turn it on/off. One click with your thumb on -+ and you see the Ohms of the atomizer. A very short click on + or - does nothing, likely to prevent accident input, good. The puff counter shows always a moement before you can change the Watt/Volt. At first I thought this is bad, but on the other hand it prevents accident change of the setting. + Passthrough (vaping while charging) can be useful.
CONS
- I highly doubt this cell has 800 mAh. I guess 650 mAh, or even less. See the Discussions section, ATV result... - The VW-mode starts at 6 Watts. I wish it would start at 5, maybe even 4 Watts. At the lowest Watts (6 Watts) I can get some of my clearos to taste a bit burnt. At the lowest Volt (3.3 Volt), same clearo, I don't have this problem. But I want to use the Watt-mode... - The button is supposed to show the state of the battery by green/yellow/red. For me it shows green for about 550 vapes, goes within 10 vapes to red and the battery is empty. So this color-battery-indicator is absolutely useless. +- The puff counter is probably not too meaningful. My duration per puff varies... if it would record the total time the power button was held that would be probably more meaningful. Even better would be a measure for how much mAh has been consumed from the battery! Also, it counts a puff if you press the power button for a fraction of a second. And it shouldn't reset if you turn the device off. Better would be a reset after it has been fully charged, or manually. - When the battery dies, you have to throw the whole nice thing into the trash.
Some month ago I received the V3 (USB connector, VW-mode), everything labeled with Innokin/iTaste (unlike the pictures here). It arrived with a tiny crack in the housing (above the power button). The package was fine, so this must be happened during production. I wondered why the display is a bit dirty, and has slight scratches - there's a protector foil on it! Just peel it off... I think the iTaste can be recommended for everyone, also and especially to beginners. It is quite compact, easy to use, and with the VW-mode it will compensate the Ohm-variations which ALL atomizers have. As a beginner it can be frustrating when atomizer of the same type behave differently... It also tells you how much Ohm your atomizer has, or if you have a short in it.

It has not the best battery cell in it (see Discussions section), but for the price it's a good battery.

Plastic - light Fully transparent, a good gimmick to explain smokers how a Ecig works Metal-on-metal threadings
CONS
Plastic ;-)
For the price you may want to buy a RGM2 instead... ;-) But it's a nice gimmick. And if you put the head's chimney onto a ProTank2 head you even can use a good head with it (you should ;-).

Everything fine, only the screw to lock the cover is not included. The cover snaps a bit in, so it is not completely loose without the screw.
