CONS
I slightly tight fit on some toppers, but a change on o-rings will deal with that.
This drip tip is going to be the one that lives on whichever atomiser I'm currently using for my daily vape juice. It looks wonderful, and the shape is great too. O-rings are a bit large, so it is a tight fit on some toppers - but I can change o-rings easily enough, and with this tip, it's worth doing - although I may get more so I can keep different sized o-rings on them. All in all, a wonderful piece of work at an excellent price.

Price convenience ease of use
CONS
Not up to the standard of the authentic. tendency to rust in the mild steel lining of the winding jigs, unless dried very carefully.
Now I have the authentic as well, I can see where the extra money went. This is not a bad tool, and will be quite adequate for the occasional builder who is not OCD about minor detail, and is prepared to spend the additional time after cleaning to ensure it is very carefully dried. The machining of the pins isn't all that precise in length, so on some of them there is a protrusion of the 4mm base section through the handle, which makes the first wrap or two oversized, but you can just wrap an extra couple and pull the oversized ones out afterwards. Despite these minor issues, it beats the blazes out of winding on a screwdriver or drill bit!

Heat resistant. Looks (although that is subjective) Can see coils and wick through it after polishing. Air holes precisely aligned with those on the atomiser.
CONS
VERY tight fit!
This is a lovely alternative to the standard stainless steel cap, if you use hot builds (as it doesn't transmit as much heat to near your mouth), or simply if you prefer the look. Mine was a VERY tight fit, but polishing it inside and out (dremel, felt mop tip and some jewellers rouge works a treat) improved this a lot, and you can be sure it won't leak, even after polishing. Quite apart from the looks and fit (which gives the O rings an easier time), the polishing serves an additional purpose, in making this cap sufficiently transparent to show off your build (if it is worth showing off!) and seeing how wet your wick is - so even without temperature control, you won't get dry hits, or over-drip (or squonk) unless you really aren't paying attention! Oh, and it makes airflow adjustment easier, although as I run mine wide open I don't have to do that much, unless I'm leaving it full while off the mod. Got another of both this and the atty it fits in my wish list again, as it's a great little device, particularly after polishing. That way I can have one in squonk mode and another in conventional drip mode - unlike some, you have to change the pin, not just remove or install a plug. My current one is rocking a chain twisted (that is a hand weave, as every twist of opposite pairs of wire crosses the other) 4x28 GA 316L 4mm 9 wrap coil in TC mode, which is giving very good flavour, but does run rather hot - I hate to think what it would be like with the stainless steel cap!

Sharp! Fine point. well packaged and protected with oil. suit either handed use.
CONS
Sharp!
I now have two pairs of these, as I keep one purely for use on my atomiser wicks (which I do my very best to keep spotlessly clean). Being well packaged with preservation oil, they did need a bath in the ultrasonic cleaner before use - hand washing or dishwasher would probably work just as well, but be careful hand washing - they are VERY sharp! Then just rinse any trace of detergent off under running water and you are good to go! Being completely symmetrical, they suit use in either hand, so great if you have a mixture of left and right handers in the household, but keep well away from children.

Well made. Nice and tight fit - the cell won't come out until YOU want it to. Thicker at the most vulnerable points - the ends.
CONS
None
I got these in advance of having a spare 26650 cell, and I'd recommend others to do the same. Your safety depends on protecting the integrity of the cell, and these provide that protection. You most certainly do not want to be the star of a news video with your pocket on fire! At present, I have an 18650 in there in it's adapter, so I can easily carry both adapter and spare cell - when I get another 26650, the adapter will be retired and I'll carry just the spare 26650 in this. If you are going to have any spare cell, get these FIRST - don't wait until you have an unprotected cell laying around - all my cells are in mods, the charger, or a protective case with NO exceptions!
