- great with some DIY tweaks Review by Mitchell
- got this with my starter kit. perfect for carrying throughout the day in case you want to switch flavors or need to recharge your mini batts throughout the day. Had two issues though. 1) Its hard to get a 65 batt with a carto on it out of its slot. solved this by taking two pieces of scotch tape and sticking them sticky sides together but leaving one end longer with the sticky still exposed. stuck that end to the black hinge on the right side of the case and use it like a ribbon to lift the batt out of the slot. 2) the flexibility of the cover allows the button to be pressed even when closed. solved it by putting a small piece of 2 sided tape to the right of the button and sticking a 1 cm piece of rubber band on it to keep the cover from flexing enough to hit the button (Posted on 3/11/13)
- Problem when using the 1.5A adapter? Review by dymrip
Has anyone else had a problem getting the PCC case to charge when connected to the 1.5A wall adapter?
When I use the regular adapter it charges fine (yet slowly, usually takes overnight), but when I connect this thing to my new 1.5A wall adapter the PCC actually drains power until the case has no charge left at all.
The 1.5A adapter seems to work fine for all other purposes, so I really don't think the adapter is faulty.
Other than that, I love my PCC case and my new 1.5A wall adapter, just wish I could use them together so my PCC case charged quicker. (Posted on 12/11/12)
- Great for Travel!! Review by Michael
I recently took this with me on vacation and it was perfect to carry around all day, as it allowed me to charge a 65mm battery, while storing another 65mm battery with carto attached. In the spare slots, I kept two cartomizers and one rubber SI comfort tip. (rather than using all three slots to hold cartomizers). The version I chose was the "gray lid" option. It's more of a translucent black, or smoky gray, in my opinion; much nicer than it looks in the picture.
Some minor criticisms, however:
1) My manual refers only to the original PCC, not the Mega. Similar in operation, but not quite in regards to the charging bars/meter.
2) The recharge meter (blue for case power, red for ecig battery recharge level) seems almost random. I can never really tell how much charge the case or battery has left; however, when the light goes out, I know it's fully charged, so that's enough. (ie. Charge is complete when the blue light goes out on the case, or the LED on the ecig battery goes out).
3) the case lid is somewhat thin, to the point of being flexible. If the case is stored in a certain way (e.g. tight pants pocket, crowded purse or the SI PCC Carrying Sleeve) it will bend the lid and actually press down on the recharge button. If the recharge button was shorter, or recessed, or if the lid was sturdier, that problem would be alleviated. I've taken care not to store it in such a way, but I did buy the PCC carrying sleeve for this, and the tight fit caused it to be unusable, as it would keep the recharge button constantly pressed in. Still, a minor problem.
Overall, it's great and very handy. It charges my 65mm batteries quickly, and the case itself holds a good charge. I use it daily around the house, or when I'm out for the day, and it's absolutely essential for taking on vacation! (Posted on 9/13/12)
- A must have! Review by Karen
- Thank you so much for replacing this for me! It's a must have while traveling! SI's Customer service Rocks! (Posted on 7/26/12)
- Pretty good but a few problems Review by Kris
Over all its okay but aside from the fore mentioned probelms with getting 78mm batteris out i have a few problems. First off the battery door it was almost impossible to slide on and once i get it on it bulges out in the center. Secondly i dont know if i my have gotten faulty one or not but the metal piece the charging batterry screws into feels flimsy and if accidentlly wiggled during charging my volt battery, it will sometimes say no battery is connected and stop charging. The battery meter always show full charge on both the pack and volt battery even if either one is almost dead and on one of my volt batteries it wont charge it and the led on the volt just flickers constantly maybe as i said mine is just faulty but i hate how i spent so much on something so seemingly cheap made especially since everything else i have from smokeless image is usually such high quality
And once again if this isnt common and mine is just faulty i appologize and will rerevie when i get a new one (Posted on 6/11/12)
- how many of you have gotten bad ones? Review by Phillip
- i ordered this with my starter kit in febuary, by march, the battery would no longer take a charge. they replaced it under warrenty. a month later, same problem. everything is telling me not to buy another one. but nothing else made holds both batteries and extra carto's. what happened to the one they used to make that was a little bigger and held 10 carto's? i see all thies good reviews so why am i getting bad ones? even with all the good reviews, i cant reccomend something that i continue to get bad results from. whats up with that smokeless image?

- Very Nice Case Review by Kim
I like this case. Once fully charged, I can charge at least 4 of my 78 batteries before needing to recharge the case. Even though there is enough charge left for another battery or two, I like to recharge the case at that point so I don't have to worry in a pinch.
There can be an issue for some because of how closely the 78 fits in the battery troughs, but I don't consider this to be a deal breaker in any way. I can slip the edge of my fingernail in to help lift the battery, if needed, but I don't usually have a problem. What is curious to me, though, is it almost seems like the troughs are somehow magnetized, as my batteries don't slip and slide around much. Maybe it is just a really good fit for the batteries. Nonetheless, I like it.
With three troughs or trays for extra carts - with rubber sleeves - It has turned into an essential accessory to keep with me at all times. I purchased a neoprene sleeve from SI to protect it, and the case with two batteries and three carts go with me everywhere. TSA didn't bat an eye at it when it was properly packed in my airline carry on, either. (All small electronics packed "off" in their carry cases neatly in a zip locked bag along with any extra chargers, and placed under the spare pair of shoes which are always on top of the other bag contents - with the exception of the liquids zip lock bag which is taken out and scanned separately at the security checkpoint. = SI customer tip of the day.)

- good choice Review by Brent
- Very convenient and nice touch to be able to hold a fully assembled one and one on charge. With the addition of holding 3 cartridges it really allows you to walk out the door with no concerns that you will be covered for a day or 2. Only warning is that when you put the battery in when assembling it, make sure you move it towards the contacts and get it off the ledge in the battery compartment so that you don't break the lid clips.

- Very Nice Improvements, 4 out of 5 stars! Review by Tim
- Very Nice Improvements this time. I can charge 220 mah batteries perfectly 6 times with a little power to spare. Great job at selecting that 2,200 mah battery! Getting rid of the light up Logo helps with conserving power too. It still takes 2 hours to charge a 65mm battery though, but that's because the e-cig battery LED still lights up during a charge which steals some power during a charge. FYI... The LED is a UB mini-SMT chip, depending on the gate configuration it can demand up to 300 mA, but I think it's governed at around 100 mA on these Volt batteries. So, if you could kill the steady LED, then you could probably charge a 65mm battery in about 1 hr. 10 min. - I have to agree with other users (like Acheron) about the carto and e-cig battery troughs. It does get a bit irritating getting the cartos out. You have to flip them out and risk dropping them onto the floor or ground. If you charge a 78mm battery in it, you have to sort of flip it out too before unscrewing it. - If you like keeping your carto caps on, then the PCC can only hold 3 cartos, otherwise it can hold 5 (2 without the caps) and 1 battery on charge. But as slow as these batteries charge, I have to take 3 batteries with me. So that's 3 cartos with caps, 1 battery in the top tray, 1 battery on charge, and 1 fully assembled e-cig hanging in my mouth... lol. That's 4 cartos on the move, which is not bad. If you have a 8 hour shift at work, then this is normally plenty - Some people say they can fit a fully assembled 65mm e-cig in the top tray, but I like using the diamond LED caps and the tray lacks about 1/16" of fitting in there. I can shove the soft tip cap down into the carto and force it into the tray, but it's a struggle to get it back out. - But anyway, I still have to put my 3 cents worth of suggestions in here... 1) Change the plastic mold where the inside trough walls of the carto storage area is about 1/8" shorter than the outside wall. Just a narrow gulley 1/8" x 1/8" for the tip of your finger to slip into would be good to grab the cartos better. You might need to make the case a wee bit longer to compensate for this, but that's okay, because... 2) The case does need to be a little longer so we can grab the end of a 78mm battery after it's through charging. Plus a fully assembled 65mm e-cig with a diamond LED cap would drop perfectly in there then. And finally, 3) I still think you should kill the e-cig battery LED during a charge. The PCC already has a blue LED in the LCD display, which could be configured to blink every 10 seconds until the e-cig battery charge is complete. That LED doesn't use as much power as the e-cig battery LED does. At the very least you could just try doing that with the LED on the e-cig battery and make it do the 10 second interval blink until the charge is complete. That would be cool, right? Anything would be better than staying steady on. - Overall you still have a really nice PCC here as it is. Like I said, 4 out of 5 stars. I'm just trying to throw some more ideas at you of what I would want in a PCC. You might not ever get it "perfect" for everybody, but you can still design it better than what other companies do. I know you can! All of your hardware is better than others out there! (Posted on 3/15/12)
- Nice! Glad I chose it! Review by Marlin in MN
After seeing the video - I suggested my kid go with this one. Glad I did! The extra roominess will be great for a day of running w/o having to carry chargers!
A couple tweaks would make it PERFECT: Just a wee bit longer and it would hold the 75 mm battery w/ carto attached.
I'm hoping my kid won't have any trouble w/ removing items as ARCHERON stated. It would be nice to have the logo light up like the smaller case too - but ... still beats having to carry charging equipment for ONE MORE ITEM!
I had a little trouble getting battery door to close. The hinge/clip didn't want to slide under. Looked like it "bent up" - I hope it doesn't break off. Seemed a little bit 'light'. All in all - I'd still order another!
Can hardly wait to get my own kit. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! FAST service to boot! Thank You Smokeless Image! (Posted on 3/12/12)
