PROS
Attractive design. Convenient telescoping. Firing button locks.
CONS
Protruding firing button doesn't allow it to be carried in a pouch.
For the price, you can't go wrong with this attractive telescoping mechanical mod. I bought this to use with my drippers and, so far, it has performed well and as expected. I prefer my dripper coils at 1-1.2 ohm, which is too low for most VV/VW mods. Plus, with the 18500 battery this mechanical is relatively small and fits perfectly in my hand. This is 100% mechanical, so care must be taken when putting in a battery. Battery compartment venting is adequate with 3 vent holes at the top and 3 just above the firing button. I like to carry my mods (Sigelei Zmax/iTaste SVD) in a pouch attached to my belt, but because of the protruding firing button it won't fit in a carry pouch. Not really a big issue since I use my VV/VW mod and a clearo when I'm away from home. Overall, this was a good purchase.

A little too airy for my preference
A simple and basic dual-coil dripper that works well on my mechanical mod. Have yet to rebuild the coils, but it looks simple enough. For me, this dripper is too airy and I'm working with it to improve that. However, at these prices I can afford to order several drippers to try. I'm sure there is one out there that will be perfect for my preferences.

PROS
Charge up to 4 batteries at once.
CONS
None.
Since both my wife and I are heavy vapers, we go through several IMR18350, IMR18500 and IMR18650 batteries a day. With the capability of charging up to 4 batteries at a time, it's easy to maintain and rotate our batteries throughout the day. Excellent charger.

CONS
Leaks
What I want is a RTA that offers the vapor, flavor, and convenient filling of the single coil Lemo 2, but WITHOUT THE LEAKING. This isn't it. Though promoted as a leak-proof device, like ALL the others... it does leak. Like many others, I've spent a fortune trying to find that perfect device. The simple fact is that it doesn't exist and I'm not sure it ever will. Like most things in life, the device you end up using most of the time is a compromise. For me, the Lemo 2 is still the best RTA compromise and the Bellus falls very short.

At this point, I'm just trying to decide whether it's worth much more time and effort. The base, I think, has potential if I can figure out a build that won't leak like a sieve. So far, I've tried several builds without success, but I'm not ready to give up on it yet. However, the tank section is very problematic and I just couldn't make it work at all. It looks to me as though the glass section is the wrong size and too narrow. Bottom fill is pretty much impossible and just makes a mess. I replaced the chimney, the top section with a Kayfun PC Tank, and Kayfun top cap, which works fine and holds considerably more liquid. The Kayfun chimney reduces the airflow somewhat, but it's still more than enough for me. I'm going to play around with a few more builds, but I'm not going to put a whole lot more time and effort into this one - I'll just take the $12 loss. Bottom line is there are too many other RTA's available today that work with minimal effort, and the Silverplay simply has too many issues.
