Ecig expert Morandir tests the V4L Dial-A-Volt batteries

Ecig expert Morandir tests the V4L Dial-A-Volt batteries 3This is a guest post written by Morandir835, an e-cig enthusiast, admin on the Vapor4Life forum, and a regular on their ECF sub forum.

A few weeks ago Vapor4Life launched another new product, the V4L Dial-A-Volt (DAV for short). I’ve tested these for the past few weeks, and so far have been very happy with the findings. The tests have been an ongoing process, with each battery size (650, 900, 1100, 1300mAh) being monitored with the following cartomizers:

  • Dual coil cartos:
    • 1.5ohm
    • 2.0ohm
    • 2.5ohm
  • Single coil cartos:
    • WOW carts
    • CoolCarts

I decided against testing the DAV with a 2.0ohm or 3.0ohm single coil carto for a couple of reasons. 1) I don’t have enough of the single coil tank cartos left to test them all, and 2) the WOW and CoolCarts are close enough to them that differences between them will be a minute at best.


I won’t go too much into the technical numbers now, but when the tests are finished, I will include the link to the thread on the V4L forum with all the data. The look of these with a 3.5ml tank is perfect, and the CoolCarts and WOW cartos don’t look out-of-place either in my opinion. You can use EGO mega cartos on the DAV as long as a 510-808 and an 808-510 adapter are screwed on it.


The DAV is turned on and off with a 5 click system. The cut-off time for these are between 10.5-13.5 seconds, much like that of the Original Vapor King Diamond and Stealth manual batteries. To change the voltage you simply twist the dial on the bottom of the unit itself. There is a red line on the dial to indicate what voltage you’re running at to a point. There are four marked units on the DAV itself- 3.3V, 3.8V, 4.3V, and 4.8V. So if you want to set it to exactly 4.6V you’ll need a multimeter for it. In all honesty though because of the ease in which you can change the voltage, the numbers don’t matter as much as just finding the spot that suits you best. The button is back-lit by a green LED as well, indicating if it’s on and when the battery is low.

For more technical info. simply check out this thread: It will be updated as each test is completed. Join me in the V4L Forum to learn more about all kinds of e-cig hardware!

    • Since the V4L Dial-A-Volt batteries are manual, there is a light on them that must be pressed both to turn it on and off and also to activate every time you want to take a puff. The button is clear and turns green when you press it. Other than that light, I would say it’s ok for stealth vaping.
