Functionality

228W/50A Max Output with Dual 18650 Cells

Powered by dual replaceable 18650 cells, the max output can be reached to 228W. Also, it offers more possibilities when using various coils with its 50A maximum output current.

Compact Size with Hidden Fire Button

The unique hidden fire button is a plus to the fashionable yet simple appearance of Predator 228. The compact size with ergonomically designed shape is better for grip and carry.

2A Max Charging Current for Quick Charge

Both of the USB ports are plated which can support 2A max charging current. And it can get fully charged more quickly when using the Avatar Quick Charger (sell separately).

Flip-open Battery Cover for Easy Exchange

The flip-open bottom cover with ventilation holes is designed for easier cells replacement and better heat dissipation.

Charging

It is better to take out the cells and charge them through external charger. You can also charge the device by connecting it with a computer or a wall adapter via USB cable.

Serving as a Power Bank for Reverse Charging

With the help of RC (reverse charging) adapter, Predator 228 can serve as a power bank to charge other electronic devices.

Dual Circuit Protection & Reverse Polarity Protection

Reverse polarity protection is effectively achieved by the application of special battery anti reverse circuit in the circuit board. And the dual circuit protection systems make the Predator 228 much safe and reliable.

Upgradeable Firmware with Identifiable Separate Battery Power

Coming with the upgradeable firmware, the separate battery power can be detected correctly.

Who Should Purchase?

This device is meant for intermediate to advance vapors.

Is it worth buying?

The fast 2-Amp charging technology stands out, but there is also the balanced charging, the low discharge point of the batteries and the power bank functionality. The Alien doesn’t have these, but it’s also a year older, which in the world of vaping makes it an old device. The Predator is not perfect, and it currently has a faulty 510 connection, but if that gets fixed (and I’m sure it will), it will be one of the best, if not the best, dual-battery device on the market.
