2 points for Skeeeets !

'Brass. I can see it from the inside of the battery cap (they did a shit/thin plate job)' 100% true

The body i think is brushed zinc and clear coated. - You are right ! All the same or similar...
All Eleaf, SMY etc. are using this garbage technology. I do not believe in Iron threaded 510 and use Heatsink in my all mods. (I tell you as mechanic) The only weak point can be the fire micro switch.
(but you can repair it too)

Have it over a year now, still going strong ..looks like hell though, as i use it daily...the top and bottom bases are a chromed brass, hold up fairly well, only some of the top base coat has worn through exposing the brass on mine...similar all the buttons, well worn on mine, coated brass... the main body is a coated zinc alloy, looks like hell on mine, one year on, pitted, scarred and tarnished, just from constant hand contact, no dropping or rubbing with keys and such...

Would i buy the same again ? ... yeah, its tough and reliable, and as for the cosmetics, if you have it long enough that it gets as tarnished as mine, just throw a sticker bomb on it ;-)

So here's the breakdown:

The body/sleeve of the mod is SS.

The top and bottom plates are plated zinc alloy, including the 510.

The 510 pin is plated brass.

Some of the battery caps have been plated zinc alloy, and others have been plated brass. (Doesn't really make much difference anyway).

The positive battery terminal is plated brass.
Woah, mama!

When did you order it? If that's the case then they either stopped using SS for it at some point or made a few batches without it to cut corners...
