Price! *Prolific* vapour production Full rebuildable Lower operating costs than cartomisers or CE style systems. Really lets you taste your juice.
CONS
Like all Genesis style tanks it will leak a little from the wick hole. The plastic tank is not looking very durable. Allen key bolts more fiddly than screw heads. Installed coil is useless out of the box. You will end up buying more of them!
Firstly this is NOT A COBRA tank. It looks like all the world like the DID Genesis clone that other vendors also stock. I fully expected this and I suspect most people do but you ain't gonna' get a Cobra for this price. Even if you take it as a DID (I don't know who makes it, no markings on box) then it's still a great price. As shipped mine came with allen key, spare wick and two spare short lengths of Kanthal. The coil as delivered was a waste of time. Seriously, somebody should be shot for letting a coil that bad out of the building. Mine didn't make contact with the wick on anything but the bottom coil. I quickly rebuilt it and had it up and running. It's a little fiddly with the allen key heads but it works fine - take your time and watch the numerous youtube how to build a coil vids out there for hints. Initially I was not that impressed with the vape, I was not too worried as I know they take a while to bed-in. I then realised that the air hole in the top cap was on the wrong side to the wick when screwed all the way down, backed it off half a turn and WOW! That's how you do it!! The difference in vape quality is immense so well worth checking. Concerning the air hole it seems to be about the right size with a nice balance on the draw. As things settled down then it just got better and better. I ran through a batch of home made 50/50 butter scotch and it tasted great, probably better than it does on my Phoenix dripping atty and certainly less muted than with my carto. The clouds of vapour were fantastic, no way you could ever stealth vape with this monster! One thing worth noting, the supplied wire is very low resistance. My first build with the supplied wire came in at ~1.6 Ohm which dropped to ~1.2 after half an hour of use. At this low a resistance my VV/VW VAMO 2 did not want to play and gave the Low Ohm warning. If you want to go low make sure you've read up, have a mechanical mod and good quality batteries. I'm using a budget UDT 510 with IMR batteries and that works very well. Overall it's a really nice little atty. I think the price is great and the only real concern I have is the tank. But put this into perspective, the whole kit costs less than a replacement tank for an AGA! I'll certainly be ordering another...

Clever airflow Easy to see fill level 5.5ml (non TPD option)
CONS
Annoyingly sets wattage on inserting pod Coils don't like high VG Flavour not as good as the reviews would have you believe Heavy Delay on first button press to 'wake up'
Maybe I was expecting to much from this device, I almost went with an RPM but the visible juice level and gene chip pushed me this way. It's not a bad device but I can't agree with the hype from the YouTube reviews. It's capable but I honestly prefer the vape from my Smok Trinity with most of the juices I've tried to date. The magnets are OK, but not as strong as I'd like. There is a delay on first fire / sometimes have to fire a second time to get it going but then it fires fine. Battery life with the .4ohm coils is OK.

Compact Easy to fill Replacement heads available Easy to clean
CONS
Fill scale lies. Supplied drip tip not the best Anything else is being picky
I've tried a few solutions since I started vaping at the beginning of the year and this one has surprised me the most. Got a couple for my brother who I just got into vaping. His main requirement was easy to fill, reliable and low cost (the last requirement is actually mine as I have to fund his vape habit!). Ordered 3 of these for him, he only got one as I kept the other two! I'm blown away. Plenty of vapour production and so far no dry hits, even when using 50/50 juice. I might have to give it a tip when running really low just to be sure but that's it. I'm using them for work with an SD Keyring combo and it's tiny, easy to fit in the pocket and not an attention grabber sat on my desk - a colleague through it was a pen and that my purple juice was the ink! The performance is fantastic for the price. I will be ordering more.

Value for money - it's 30ml for a steal!
CONS
None I can see
Got some of this as a base for mixing but have ended up smoking a bit of it as it comes out of the bottle. I'm a fan of RY4 and if you've tried that then RY1 will give you an insight into where that flavour comes from. It's has less depth but some of the elements of what makes RY4 such a fans favourite. If you like a lighter cig taste, good TH and a bit of something to leave you with on the exhale then this is not a bad place to start.

Good vapour production Works well with Riva EGO battery Easy to strip for cleaning No leaks despite daily pocket carry
CONS
Slightly large compared to a CE4 Make sure you unscrew using knurled part
I only started vaping at the start of the year and only got one CE4 with my kit. Bought a couple of these as I prefer the clearmiser system to cartomisers. So far I'm very impresses. I've had one on the go for a few weeks and have cleaned it twice. Easy to take apart, run under hot watter, dry and use again. Doesn't seem to hold strong flavours once cleaned so good if you like to try different fluids. In use I find I get plenty of vape. Flavours come through nicely and it's a snip to top up the tank, just be careful not to get any fluid down the air hole. Plenty of videos on-line to show you how to use it properly. Compared to the prices on lots of the dedicated vape sites the price is fantastic. I love mine and have already recommended these to a couple of friends who are also just getting into the ecig thing. Recommended.
