I recently got back into vaping and I'm using 3 batteries from V4L that I got a couple years ago, two autos and a manual (had a second manual that bit the dust) and I'm having issues with items to charge the batteries (not the batteries themselves). I only had the wall charger for my batteries, while ordering clearomizers I saw a 808 USB charger, got it didn't even fit. So I looked for a pcc I liked and I found Smart XL Portable Charging Case
Got it charged it first chance I got and vaped until my two auto batteries died. I screwed them in held down the button down.. the lights flashed, my batteries flashed.. then nothing. According to the directions you press and hold the button, the pcc would flash, you batteries would flash and the smart pcc would assess their charge and if low would begin to charge, turning the indicator light below red while it's charging.
I tried switching the batteries to the other side, like that would do anything but I wanted to try everything didn't work. I took the batteries out, I happened to have my manual going on my wall charger so I took it off and put on one of my auto. Put the manual into the pcc. I try it again and it started to charge the manual, I took the auto off the wall charger and put it on the other side press and hold the button and it started charging too. I think I'm in the clear.
I was at a friends house, luckily had all three of my batteries because after one died I tried to charge it with my pcc and it didn't charge. After thinking and testing I realise the pcc only works if I jump start charge the batteries on the wall charger which defeats the purpose of a pcc. I even tried using the old little one battery pcc I got with the V4L starter kit to see if I could do the 'jump start' with the pcc from V4L, didn't work only works from wall charger.
Anyone have experience with this pcc or trouble with V4L batteries not cooperating?
