NITECORE has just launched the upgraded NEW I4 , very lucky we have the first-hand information to review. Apart from “TWICE CHARGING SPEED FASTER THAN I4” , following is more specific details what we found that NITECORE pays a very attention to optimize the charger not only in the electronics, but also the structure, design , and user interface.
All are ready to become the most universal vape charger!
With brand-new User-Interface, NEW I4 utilises a LED indicator screen. Display the charging percentage more clearly. An additional red LED light in each charging slot indicates the on/off status of fast-charging mode.
Longer metal connect-point in positive polarity, and ultra-slim edge enables NEW I4 to easily “without pressure” insert all kinds large-size rechargeable batteries in each charging slot, such as D-cell battery, 26650 li-ion.
Longer space in charging slot under same size body.
Regarding the whole view of NEW I4, it has obviously increased and optimized the radiation fin, in order to maximize the ability of heat dissipation. Superficial area is greatly maximized to limit, efficiency of heat dissipation 100% improved than I4.
