Soooo...
I went and pulled the trigger on one of these... I figure for 30 bucks, why the heck not? I already plan on charging the batteries externally, and probably finding some way to seal up the 510 connection if needed... What other stuff should I look forward to with this little thing? (Other than my house burning down, killing everyone I know and love and it blowing up during use turning me into a surprise two-face)

That's about it.. Though I have 2 of them one silver one black and I got my girlfriend a silver and my two best friends black ones.. None of them have problems.. We have all had them from the day. They came out.. So you can get lucky as well :):)

Cool, I figured if it messes up I'll just send it back to FT. For about 30 bucks I'll throw my kayfun on it with a .8 build and just roll with it like that.

I had no other charger for a few weeks and was forced to risk using this. It works fine. I think the bad batch of flaming & melting ones are over and done with, so you'll get a good one. No major issues. Few annoyances:

- At low ohms you're stuck with high power. You can set the wattage low but it'll always fire at 20W or above on a 0.5 ohm coil
- It is a bit underpowered in general. Max is around 25-28W.
- The battery door moves around a bit. That's a bit annoying in normal use.
- There is significant lag (over 1/2 second) between pressing the button and firing after a few minute sleep time out.

The one that I had was the one with the battery issue which was replaced by FT and the new one works great

I have two now and both work with no issue.

Waiting for a sale to get two more

Seems they adressed the fireing delay on the gold one:

I have two a black and a silver and without doubt they are the best mods I ever bought.

Same here - still one of my all time favourite mods, and I'd be delighted to know if I can go back to recommending them to people again.

If it's still working well after a few weeks of use, I'll post an update in here about it. If it's DOA or doesn't act how I want it to, I'll just make a post bitching and moaning about how FT ripped me off and are horrible. It should be some good fun. Lol
