More comfortable than a Balance
Despite its protruding +/- button the Flexy sbs mod is more comfortable to hold and easier to use than the Balance sbs mod. Made by the same cloner, 5aVape, the Flexy uses the same chip with the same menu options, is a little taller and only fits 22mm or under attys.

In both 18350 and 18650 mode the feel in the hand is much more comfortable thanks to it's figure eight design with fits like a glove in your hand. The finish of the body is smooth and lighter than the Balance, the buttons don't require any effort to locate without looking and the battery cap sits flush.

Thanks - very useful comparison, just what I was looking for.

Does the Flexy (or Balance) have any battery venting holes on the mod or on the 18650 tube?

No worries. Neither the Flexy or Balance have battery venting holes on the mod or the 18650 tube. Being regulated mods the chip has protection to prevent the battery from getting to a point that it would vent.

Much appreciated, thank you.

Sorry to trouble you further, but I don't suppose you've evaluated the TC performance on this mod/chip?

I have tested tc in the Flexy and Balance and it works accurately from what I can tell.

Thanks for the review. I saw a YouTube video on both of these from the same YouTuber and he said the balance fire button can be locked by 5 click of the power button but the flexy can't? How if this is the same chipset? Can you please verify if this is true. Thank you

Hello Panto911. I can confirm that 5 clicks of the fire button does lock it and unlock it, just like the Balance.
