Stunning looks. Quality built inside and out. Manages low ohm builds with ease and power even fires clapton coil builds well at 50-60watt, just watch that battery drain :) Very accurate, to the hundredth, ohm reading. Battery door fits solidly with strong magnets. Sprung held battery. Easy to read screen and easy to operate (same ui as the smox x cubed minus the bluetooth option). 0-60 watts & 100c-315c/200f-600f round robbins* and has perfect acceleration, fast yet not too fast, with acceleration boost after half a second or so of holding the button. *temperature changes from fahrenheit to centigrade upon reaching highest or lowest and rises in increments of 10. Stainless steel 510 threads with stiff spring loaded copper pin. Concise manual. Comes with a silicone sleeve. Price, there is NOTHING comparable for the money and very little for twice the price.
CONS
I won the rattly firing button lottery (shouldn't rattle normally, Up & down buttons are fine).
This just shows that an extremely high quality device can be made and sold at a very competitive price. Hopefully it's obvious from my review just how bl@@dy good this is. Although I haven't had this long I haven't found any quirks, on first impressions this is worth every penny & some (don't tell Kooper/Fasttech but it's worth twice the price.) After some recent disappointing purchases this has made me very happy. Unless anything better appears, which for the same money is very unlikely, I'll probably be buying another (in black). Can't wait for the dual 18650 "Plus" cos I'll be buying that also. Koopor is a manufacturer to keep an eye on if they continue making products of this quality.

Good build quality. Great flavour. 510 protrudes enough should you want to run it on a hybrid. Near RDA like experience with both flavour & air flow. Glass drip tip is a perfect draw/match. No leaking issues.
CONS
None worthy of classing as a con but see below for a few "quirks".
Fiddly to build on (like all rbta's) Sub 27 quage A1 can be clipped if you wrench down on the post screws too hard as the thread goes a little too deep past the post holes. Maybe some crunched up kanthal or a small grub screw, screwed all the way down might fix the issue. Compared to other tanks that are arguably more complex and have more materials etc the price could be cheaper, around £6/$10. The fill screw could do with changing, it's too flat at the screws point making it a fiddly bastard to line up in the hole :) IF UD (or cloner) tweak the air flow control design and some how witch craft a few extra mm's on the deck then I'll be buying v2 (3) without a hesitation, if prices drop (-B or value version etc) then I'll most likely buy another

Fit MadDog rda they screw in they screw out there are 10 of them which is better than 9.
CONS
didn't come with the maddog I bought....
they screw in using a screwdriver they screw out using a screwdriver screws are awesome. I like screws & cheese. Cheese is better as you can make sandwiches with it, and pizzas or best of all simply cheese on toast!!. Like screws there are many different varieties of cheese. I don't like Edam or other "rubbery" cheese like swiss cheese but love most soft cheese's, english blue cheese, strong cheddar, crumbly wensleydale, red leicester (as long as its not rubbery) in short most english cheeses then there's the classic french cheese such as brie & camembert perfect with a fresh baguette & then there's the many wonderful italian cheeses to which I could list many, so many cheese's I'd like to try them all, I here croatia & surrounds make beautiful cheese, one day I will visit purely for that reason. Even the americans make a decent cheese in monteray jack which oddly enough is perfect for burgers (but not much else as cheddar is a far better option in most cases) Other than edam & swiss one of the worst cheeses I've tried thus far is yak cheese made in nepal. It's strong but in all the wrong ways & I love a good strong cheese.Even had it on a pizza, not even that wonderful invention could save yak cheese.. The screws fit the maddog perfectly btw..

A pleasure to build on. 2mm post holes. Coil legs are easily cut as they do not block each other as a T post style deck does. Can be used on hybrids with confidence as the 510 protrudes at least 1.5mm-2mm with out being adjusted, far better than any of the 3 Battle decks I've purchased and they aren't adjustable (unless you like a wobbly centre post). True adjustable positive pin (screw within a screw). Fit's a number of top caps (see comments for a list). Positive does NOT wiggle. (Unlike the similar designed Phenotype L, the VO has had that issue ironed out). The vertical grub screws hole does not go further beyond the horizontal coils holes lowest point which is a common cause of clipping wires when tightening. Well Machined. No sharp edges, burs or post holes to de-bur etc. Clean, no m. oil, dirt or smells of m. oil. Quality Brass plated positive parts/unlikely to peel. Posts aren't as high as a velocity's so will suit lower top caps.
CONS
None other than I can't replace every single rda's deck with this VO. oh & has an American flag on it :P
Absolutely superb. Subtle enhancements of already successful ideas adding up to a big step forward to the mythical perfect rda deck. A must purchase. Do not buy any other Battle Deck. Imo it's the best deck design thus far. I'm replacing all decks that can fit it. I couldn't add this as a negative as it was not missed out due to the more important adjustability but it would have been great to have a bottom feed option so I could use my K cap with a bf box... ala In case the positive list was too long, I've copy pasted it here:- A pleasure to build on. 2mm post holes.

-Extremely conductive (competes with copper broadside I own). -Super machining & finish, equal to the authentic. -Finish is robust, owned for over 6 months and not a scratch or chip!! -Easy battery swap. (quarter turn to undo). -No fuss no frills battery rattle adjustment where rda is recessed in the mod. -Switch is lockable. -Silver plated contact. -Ample venting both top and bottom so battery orientation is either way. -Hybrid 510. -I'll say it again, the level of machining & finish is as good as the authentic, you'd expect to pay 5 even 10 times the price to get a product of this quality. (don't tell FT)
CONS
None imho. See below for "subjective points to consider".
If you like the aesthetic of this mod BUY IT!! I've had over 6 months and the coating hasn't deteriorated, even when dropped on to a concrete path covered in small stones & gravel the coating didn't suffer a scratch or chip. Flawless machining (I've said it a number of times in discussions, the authentic could not possibly be better, there simply is no room for improvement without making a completely different design. Also it is extremely conductively responsive (equal to the copper broadside I own). Even swapping out batteries is a pleasure :) no wrenching to unstick threads or a minute of turning, a simple quarter turn and the switch housing separates. Subjective points to consider:- If I had to say something that isn't all gush-fest it would be?? Um... oh yeah, only 24mm or less rda's will fit. (Not a con as you'd not put 25mm tanks on a 24mm mech, would you? but should be mentioned). The switches button, when unwound will move a little side to side as all buttons do of this design (Avid Lyfe style). Lastly some may consider a Hybrid 510 to be a negative. Now go buy this thing :)
