Non-conductive to heat. Non-conductive to electricity. Heat proof. Convenient holder to keep them from rolling around in the bottom of the build kit bag.
CONS
None found.
This is the perfect accompaniment to https://www.fasttech.com/p/7614800 as the rod sizes match exactly, and allow you to do any necessary tweaking of builds when settling them in. Got it today, and done one already, and it works a treat. As a bonus, on doing the authenticity check, I got a $10 voucher prize from Coil-Master!

Good build quality - solid aircraft grade aluminium alloy. Brilliant design, especially for when travelling. Good temperature control in vaping mode. Good accuracy on resistance in building/burning mode. Firmware updgradeable.
CONS
Menu a bit confusing, particularly as it was delivered set to use Chinese! Temp adjustment in temp control mode is crazy (but possible)
Apart from a few minor peculiarities, this is brilliant. Combining a build tab with a temperature controlled mod is inspired, and a must-have for a travelling self-builder of those with restricted space to store vape gear. As delivered, the menu was configured in Chinese, which took a while to figure out! Temperature control adjustment could be better, as it needs going right through the menu of selecting TC mode, material, units (C or F), then setting desired temperature before exiting! Fine if it's pre-heat power you're changing, but really in TC mode, the up/down buttons should adjust temperature, not power! That said, I can't see this being an everyday mod for general use in any case - but as a spare to carry on trips so you can build or re-wick it is simply unrivalled, and as a build deck for the space and/or budget restricted the same applies. I've already built on it, wicked on it (first successful wicking of an awkward deck - having a proper tab allows me to build while steadying my hands to stop the tremors), and am currently vaping on it, and I've only had my hands on it 10 hours!

Flexibility Durability Simplicity Excellent temperature control. Great and durable finish on this stainless steel model.
CONS
None.
I first had a black one, 34 months ago. I've bought a number since, either for myself or for giving to smokers looking to quit. My first is on it's third owner now, still going strong 34 months later (although rather beat-up) and has converted first me, then a whole family of neighbours, and is now on it's third owner. With everything in one box bar the battery and liquid, this is the ideal starter, and will see a user from quitting the stinkies right through to building their own coils on the simple and included RBA deck, and this brushed stainless model even carries on looking good. Good and simple temperature control right out of the box. A facelift version for 24 or 25mm atomisers and to fit a 21700 with a slightly contoured shape would still be best in class, if they would just take it up to 100w (I know they can) and keep the user interface the same, simple, one as on this. model.

New Axon chipset Low weight Good grippy finish zero door movement Excellent temperature control Price
CONS
None
I got my first as a kit, winning it in a draw on DJLsb's mailing list, and liked it so much I bought another! The temperature control is awesome - 2nd only to Evolv in my experience as a vaper who uses TC exclusively and on a variety of chipsets. Simple user-interface, a good screen with no power wasted on fancy graphics but just the information you need. Very comfortable in the hand, and a great non-slip finish, the low weight makes it a great everyday carry mod. You do need fingernails to get the battery door off as the little notch at the bottom is small and the magnets powerful, but the benefit is that there is no movement at all in the door when fitted.

Build quality, in both materials and construction Price Good flexible internal layout allows for a variety of uses
CONS
I haven't found one yet.
This was bought and used for my build kit and allows a huge variety of tools to be conveniently carried in an easily accessible manner. I have Allen keys and drivers, screwdrivers, coiling rods in steel and ceramic, a choice of different shaped tweezers, pliers both needle-nosed and nylon faced, quality flush-cutters, hemostats, wicking material, wire brush/tapered coiling rod, scissors, a smaller case with sticks of pre-built wires in a wide variety of styles and resistance (each type/style in a labelled and plugged 4" test tube), one of my UD build tab/mods, ceramic tweezers in a choice of tip shapes, and a few special tools required for some atomisers. Also, mesh strips and a few spare coil-heads for the few sub-ohm tanks I and my family use. The even leaves space for spare post screws in a range of sizes and battery wraps and insulator rings in every size I use, and in an emergency these can even be shrunk into place by holding them over a glowing coil on the build tab. So good for home storage. working out of, and carrying to vape events and any other trips away.
