Allegedly there's an update coming, and the charge board has been claimed by some to be a weak point. It really depends what matters to you. Personally I never use a USB for charging a mod, and they could add twelvety bagilion extra wartz to the update, and I'd still not use more than thirty.

Have a look at the Sigelei that listed today, as it seems to be the logical competitor, though I understand the two companies are linked in some way.

what I know, there is no problem with the charging but the charging board might short with a screw. So you need to open the mod and insulate the charging board or remove it. Thats it.

Vape is becoming like computers, inasmuch as if you wait for the new update that's coming out next week, you'll never buy anything. There comes a point where you have to accept that, and just nail your colours to the mast. Whatever you buy, something allegedly better will be launched before you receive it. Do your research, don't rush it, and see what beta testers (early adopters) say. I desperately wanted the YiHi mini when it launched, but put it out of my mind until reviews were in. By the time I took the plunge, the TC version was released, and enough people had played with it to say it's probably going to last. As a result, I'm happy with my purchase, and don't want more wartz or a dual battery version, which I'm guessing is next in line for launch.

Yes, that was it - thanks Watercool. I think people are putting some sort of insulating material between a screw and part of the board, or using a shorter screw. Easy fix that customers shouldn't have to do, but this is a hobbyist market, so 'meh'.

Could be worse. At least with buying stuff here (I know, not everything here is a clone) preorders are a couple of weeks at worst, and getting what you want isn't based on whether your name is pulled out of a hat.

Matt from Suck my Mod pulled one apart and shows how he thinks the board might short on a screw.

I think his vid is the worst example of all. Fiddling around with a screwdriver in a mod that has batteries in it and using "40A" batteries (or 30.. cant remember) shows his stupidity.

While he is correct with some of his assumptions, most of the stuff he says is just a random rant at a mod.
