I've had this version for several months now and it's holding up great and has become my overall favorite RDA for daily use. It even comes in the same little cardboard box that the authentic comes in. I have been eyeing one of the newer Red aluminum topcap versions. The build quality and performance is stellar on this RDA the paint job, after several months of daily use, looks just as good as the day I received it in the mail. Pull the trigger on this one for sure if doubtful!
