Most of the time this is how my reader reaction. Yes, everyday before i start vaping i will think about the battery power matter, if the battery low on power, i will put it into the charger for power up, of course.
No matter newbie or advance vaper, sometime they always forgot how important of the battery charger, without the battery charger you will not able to charge your battery, your high-end mod or awesome RDA, RTA will not working anymore, silly answer but never go wrong.

⇈ This is all you can get in the box, the VC4 charger device, the USB cable (Not include the USB power adapter) user manual,warranty card and the good quality pouch for let you keep the VC4.
⇈ Look at this good quality pouch, you can put your VC4 inside the pouch and carry it out while you on travel, more protection advantage or simply just make everything look COOL!
⇈ This is the VC4 device, large LED screen display on top, 4 battery slots and 1 mode display switch button on center. The battery slots came with 2 larger size on left & right, 2 standard size on center as well, which make you able to charge multiple type of battery.

On CH1 and CH4, the maximum power input is 1.0A, for CH2 and CH3 the maximum power input is 0.5A.
⇈ Have a closeup look on the large LED screen display again, all detailed information you will able to found in here while you are charging battery.
⇈ Back to the battery slot maximum input power, as you see in above picture, if you put your battery on CH 1 and CH2, the charging input power will be 1.0A, look at the center of LED display screen you will see it show you the input power at maximum 1.0A. It also mean in 1.0A power input, you will get more faster speed to complete your battery charging.
⇈ However, if you insert 2 more batter on CH2 and CH3 battery slot, the power input now will turn down as 0.5A, i believe it is because the power input protection and also protecting the battery healthy life issue, so it will take much more longer charging time that 1.0A power input. You can found more intelligent charge current parameter inside the user manual, strongly advise you have a read before you get ready to use this VC4.
