I like my Toptanks (of which I have several) so keeping them working matters to me. With these, spare glass (also available here), and RBAs (likewise, both authentic and otherwise), I reckon my Toptanks will last longer than I will!

Comes with coils that work in TC Comes with RBA Ideal first proper tank Several available pre-built coil-heads (SSOCC) available Or roll your own in the RBA - a great introduction to it! Durable.
CONS
Not since I first bought one, 3 weeks after my first cig-alike.
I'm trying to stock up on these as they give a beautifully saturated and flavourful restricted direct to lung vape if built well, which I've yet to find anything to better except by dripping (and I'm lazy) or squonking (and messy). And if my arthritis gets too bad to build my own (although as you can get spare RBAs for them, I always try to keep several built and ready to go), there are always the pre-built coils, which come in a wide variety of types. This is my third, and I fully intend it not to be my last. I can mix up parts on extras so I can tell them apart and which flavour I have in which tank - with top, tanks body and base all coloured to match, I can un-match them and have a lot of combinations if necessary. And at a great price here, too!

Soft Bounces back to shape quicker than the round bottles it replaces Capacity larger than round bottles it replaces. Perfect match to YFTKs own squonker each bottle comes with plenty of it's own tube.
CONS
None.
Great upgrade for the YFTK "SVA atyled" DNA75 squonker, SKU 7753800, which they fit like a glove. Many other squonk mods have the same form factor, so they would fit them too. If you are considering it, the square portion is 17.5mm square with a height of 36.75mm, and the round section at the neck is 16mm in diameter and adds 9mm to the height, giving a total of 45.75mm, as close as I can measure something that squishy! There is enough tubing to fit any but the most convoluted routes to the 510 (and your existing tube may fit anyway - this one is 4mm outside diameter). They hold more than the bottles they replace, and are both very soft and bounce back quickly to their former shape, and actually cover the inside of the hole in the case (on YFTK's own mod, and no doubt others) completely - putting the door panel back on is actually the easiest way to finish putting the bottle in place without squeezing it and accidentally squonking. Choice of four colours means you can keep track of flavours, too, or play matchy matchy with whatever atty you are using or mod you are putting it in - I have coffee in the brown one (the only one I've used so far) so can recognise it easily even when I put different flavours in other bottles. I think these are the best bottles available for any mod which they will fit (or can be made to), and the price is a bonus. Will probably get more.

Ease of building, other than screw type. Deck layout gives upper leg of coil the outside slot, allowing natural fall of wick into well. Flavour from bottom air feed. Value for money.
CONS
15th century design slotted screws. Lack of hex socket option for screws.
This is a lovely design of deck, giving easy building with the post slots the correct way around, with the outer slot being higher, the wicks call naturally to the juice well. The bottom feed positive pin is included, and thankfully, although it still uses the inferior slotted screw, they have at least used one with a closed slot, to stop it leaking juice into the 510 connector - if the pin in the mod is wide enough. It's a shame all the screws are the 15th century slotted type though, instead of the modern hex socket variety, which allow greater torque, don't "cam out", give a positive engagement, and don't require pressure downwards while turning, with the additional benefit of allowing the driver or wrench to be left engaged in the screw while the lead is positioned satisfactorily. OK, it's not expensive to replace them, but it would be far less expensive for them to have been included to start with, and maybe include those old design ones as an alternative set for those who insist on using 15th century technology (or 19th in the case of phillips head). That is the only thing which is wrong wit this atomiser, but is a serious enough issue to me to lose 3 stars on build quality and two on value (I'll now have to order up-to-date replacements). Hex socket screws make a huge difference to those of us with dexterity problems such as arthritis or hand tremors (both of which I suffer from). There is an old saying "spoiling a ship for a hap'orth of tar" and it's never been truer. Because apart from that, this is easily the best deck I've either built or vaped.

Cut to length is better value. Clear allows a label inside to show model of cell, age, and any pairing information.
CONS
Could potentially mislead the uninitiated into thinking you aren't using a battery wrap at all, and maybe copy that.
I've carefully considered the pros and cons of clear wrap, as some may think you are using unwrapped cells and copy you, but I think on balance the benefits of being able to label the cells legibly with date and place of purchase, model, Mooch ratings for capacity and safe discharge rate, and any pairing information outweighs the potential for harm, as long as you are careful to place labels to avoid misleading people in the way I've described. Whether you choose to use clear or coloured, individual or from a roll, heat shrink wrap is something every user of Li-Ion cells should both have and know how to use, in the interests of safety. If an original wrap gets damaged, the time to replace it is right then, with no delay. This roll will wrap about 30 26650 cells, so is excellent value.
