I have a love/hate relationship going on with the Mechlyfe Paramour.

I really like the size, the looks, and the weight.. But I hate the problems caused by shoddy manufacturing.

My first one (black & gold) died at 6 weeks when the electronics failed, then Mechlyfe sent me a replacement that only lasted about an hour before throwing up constant errors. Over the next month I managed to finally get it functioning most of the time, but I still can't trust it completely.

I like these mods so much I hated to give up, so I ordered the green & black from FastTech in hopes of finally getting lucky. This one works great so far, but I have no idea how long it will last. Maybe they fixed all the issues with their latest production runs, I have no idea.

Oddly enough, I've never seen the early problems many people complained about; the loose 510 and button rattle. I would actually prefer those issues over failing electronic chips.

The Paramour has a nice lightweight design, and by using a short KF Lite RTA along with an 18650 battery, it's the shortest SBS mod I own. MTL at 12 watts couldn't be any better.

I'll say 'buyer beware', but I should also mention that FT seems to have a good return policy. I'll find out how good it is if this one fails.

Would I recommend it? Yes, I just hope you get a good one.
