Hows it holding up?
It's been out for almost a year now. Those who still have theirs, would you post some photos of it?

I'm wondering how the black finish been holding up. Some people had issues with a sliding battery door, I wonder if it gets worse over time. Do you still get "weak battery" error even after the firmware update?

I can't decide whether I want this, or the VapeCige SD Nano DNA60.

I've had mine for 9-10 months or so, its been in fairly regular rotation since, and while I do tend to look after my stuff, but there is always the accidental bump/heavy put down/fall over etc.

mine still looks pretty good, no scratches. a bit of atty rash, but I only have 22mm devices, so its always hidden. Some really tiny patches where the finish has worn underneath at the corners from standing. and a few really tiny flecks of the finish has come off around the edges of the mod/door where they meet. it still looks good, still works as expected. battery door has loosened a little i guess, but i wouldnt describe it as a problem. never had the weak battery message, and i have used it until it will no longer fire when the battery is depleted. usually using -30Q batteries.

Wow thank you @dansansome. That's exactly the sort of stuff I wanted to know about. It all sounds good then!

Is the metal underneath the finish silver in color? I had a black Cana mod, and any scratch or bump would expose the silver aluminum underneath.

yes, it is silver/aluminium under the finish, but I'm fairly sure these things are black anodized. it feels really hardwearing, it doesnt give me the feeling that it'll scratch easily.
