Second the motion for the i4. Cheap, simple, reliable. Put them in and get them out when they are done, no worries. By the way, the LGHG2 is a great cell. I'm far past 500 cycles with many of the ones I have, and they still work well.

I agree, the i4 is awesome. Though the Efest LUC v3 is worth every penny if you can get it. I don't know how the price compares.

RE: Should I Upgrade?
Personal preference:

Any charger made by Xtar.

Any Liito-Kala Engineer charger.

And top of my list, the Opus BT-C3100 charger.

Good point Don, I can't believe I forgot about my beloved Xtar XP-4. That was a great charger, until I tossed it on the hard floor one too many times.

RE: Should I Upgrade?
So I went ahead and splurged. Got the Alien Kit!

Blue version. For $100 I pre ordered the blue one, came with i4 battery charger, and 2 lg HE4 batteries. And a silocone casing for the alien smok. Comes with the baby beast tfv8 plus 2 coils and 1 replacement glass. USB charging/upgrading cable.

But I heard the flavor is better on the baby beast. So far, my 0.5 ohm coils aren't very good for flavor, the 1.2 ohm much better. Claptons the best but I can't seem to prime right.

I'm excited. So I'm just dealing with my kanger for now and will go between the two I imagine. FINALLY don't need to keep charging via USB.

I'm not too find of hte small mL capacity of the baby beast, but I'll start carrying liquid with me. Wondering if I should just learn the RBA setup with the toptank I have or get the RBA for the baby beast, or just get a whole new cloud beast but for now I'm done spending money lol. These are things for the future and my starter kit from kanger has an RBA and 2 coils and some cotton so I can at least try that out sometime see if the flavor is better.

Thanks for all the help everyone Smile
