Hussar PX Excellent Design Excellent Build Quality Excellent Deck Design Excellent for DL Vaping Easy to build Fantastic Flavor Well Designed Juice Flow Compatible With PX Kits
CONS
Limited Capacity Limited Airflow Terrible Deck Screws Not Designed for MTL
It is a Hussar Project X in a new dress! You may or may not like the looks of this RTA. Either way, it is a great little flavor chasing RTA, or really an RDA with a tank on top. It has all the benefits of a Hussar PX, such as an amazing flavor, nice deck, easy to build, easy to fill and a great juice control system. It is also compatible with all the project X extras, such as a bigger tank, which is to take care of one of very few cons this RTA has: small tank capacity. You can use the Hussar PX extended tank kit(Sku 9685515) to increase the capacity to 4cc. Unfortunately, with a very limited airflow control, this RTA is made for DL Vapers. Not recommended for MTL Vapers. One thing I found that I did not like was, the deck screw quality is so bad, half of it broke while installing a coil. I suggest changing the deck screws with the normal Hussar PX Philips screws. If you are a DL Vaper, this RTA is highly recommended.

Excellent Functional Design Excellent Build Quality Great Flavor Many Airflow Options True MTL and DL Easy to Build Easy to Fill Two Tank Options Nice Accessory Kit No Markings and Logos
CONS
Tall Glass can Break Cosmetics Can Improve Faint Oil Smell No Logos
I was not sure if I wanted to purchase this RTA. But having a design between the DoggyStyle and the Siren series tanks tempted me enough. I loved my Doggy, but never bought the sirens due to being only MTL. With Penodat, I figured if it can deliver flavor half as good as the Doggy and have the airflow large enough to try a Siren tank in my restricted DL style of vape, it’s worth buying. And I was not disappointed. The tank quality is excellent as is with most Coppervape products. However, getting a minor machine oil smell from a Coppervape product was unusual for me. I think everyone should wash RTA tanks before using them for the first time, as a lot of oil and chemicals could be left inside the tank. This product comes well packaged in a box, with a wide frosted tank option that adds to the capacity. It does come with a nice accessories kit that includes o-rings, deck screws, airflow restrictors, and two drip tips. The installed o-rings are rather tight, in places. However, just soak a cotton swab in VG or E-Liquid, and lubricate all the main o-rings as you should with all European designed tanks, and this tank will work like a charm. The tank capacity is good for a tall tank, between 4.3cc and 5.4cc depending on the tank option you are using. This tank is top fill and due to the floating deck design does not require liquid control design to prevent leaks. The deck is easy to build and very forgiving. 3 airflow restrictors are included to customize the MTL vaping. However, as I did, the tank can be used without these restrictors for restricted DL vaping without any issues or leaks. The airflow ring design is nicely done and covers almost no airflow at the tightest setting and restricted DL at the widest. The flavor is great in all 3 fruity, pastry and tobacco flavor ranges. Sadly, while being great, the flavor is not exceptional as it is in the DoggyStyle RTA, which has a similar design. I tried a few builds with different wire and wick combinations, but got the same result. I suspect this is because of Doggy’s cone shaped and tighter chimney design. This does not mean Penodat’s flavor is not good. On the contrary, this tank is a great flavor chaser and worth owning, but just not as “exceptional “ as the best on the list. There are also some subjective cons: The glass tank is really tall and looks fragile. I did not break any, but I do recommend using a rubber ring around the glass to protect it. Another subjective con is, as with some European designs, I find this tank looking rather bland and without much attention to cosmetics. Other people may think differently, but imho, it is not the most attractive tank in my collection. One last con could be also considered a pro: it lacks markings and logos. I personally buy clones to test drive an expensive tank before buying and more importantly: to use them as spare and replacement parts for my expensive authentic RTA tanks. That’s why I prefer clones to be identical to authentic, down to the last detail, including logos. That’s why lack of markings and logos are also indicated in my cons list. With this very small list of cons and a great pros list, I do recommend this tank for those who vape MTL and restricted DL.

Excellent Design Excellent Build Quality Excellent Ergonomics Reasonably Precise Takes Up to 25mm Tanks Plated Color
CONS
Detached Battery Cover Forgets Resistance At Battery Replacement
I was looking for a compact, stealthy, reasonably powerful and ergonomic mod when I came across this little toy. It’s very ergonomic and comfortable in hand, once you hold it the right way. It supports up to 25mm tanks and includes 2 size shield covers. The tanks sit slightly higher than the 510 connector, preventing scratches and allowing air to bottom AFC tanks. However, this will not cause an issue since the tank is shielded by a cover and users hand. This mod is light, but feels solid. The buttons are well made and easy to operate. It has a built-in charger, which works surprisingly well. The menu system works like it does with most single 18650 TC mods, with the difference of allowing power selection during the TC mode set up. The black cover is plated and has not come off, despite using and abusing it as one of my daily mods. The TC works well, supporting Stainless Steel, Titanium, and nickel. The battery door is detached and screwes on, which I recognize as a pro, unlike many people, since I have a few mods with attached battery doors that have come off and don’t stay close. The only real con I found in this mod was, after changing the battery, it asks you to confirm same/new coil status. Overall, I love and use this durable, light, small and stealthy mod daily and love it. Highly recommended.

Excellent Build Excellent Design Fantastic Flavor AirDisk Customizable AFC Excellent JFC Easy To Build Easy To Disassemble Two Included DripTips Well Packaged Accessories No Logos
CONS
Difficult AirDisk Removal Limited Coil Options Glass May Break May Leak No Logos
I had previously tried an authentic Skyline and knew how good, but hard to find it was. So I could hardly wait to get this clone. I was not disappointed. It arrived well packaged and very clean with no trace or smell of machine oil. However, as always, I recommend washing any Tank before using it. This flavor chaser tank is designed to have different AFC adapters to customize the airflow to your exact liking. These adapters are called AirDisks. There are a large number of AirDisks available ranging from a little hole for the tightest draw to a wide open slot to accommodate a very comfortable DL vaping style. This tank comes with two AirDisks: one for mid MTL and one for mid DL styles. These AirDisks are easy to install as long as you install before you build. The JFC system is a nice redesign and update of the JFC in the Tilemahos tank, where an inner chamber turns to open and close the JFC instead of a single moving chamber. This inner chamber also acts as a space reducer to help provide the amazing flavor this RTA provides. The deck itself Is easy to build and the bottom of the deck functions as a catch cup in case of unlikely leaks. The flavor this tank provides is one of the best among RTA tanks. The spares and extras package has many parts, including two drip tips. This tank is not without faults: the build pole holes fit limited wire thicknesses. The thickest wire I successfully tried was 26AWG. I recommend checking, larger and exotic coils compatibility before buying this tank. I was surprised to see flathead screws used on the deck and wondered why as Philips screws allow tighter builds. But this is a clone and its makers have only copied a con of the authentic tank. Another issue is exchanging AirDisks with a build sitting on top of it. It may not be fun to figure your favorite airflow by trying different size AirDisks and then vaping to test your AFC, a few times. You’ll have to undo your build, change your AirDisk and retry, hoping you got it right. This RTA does have a long glass tank. My final observation is the tank may leak if it is overfilled, even though mine never did. The top cap does not have a design that allows for the air to escape. So, over filling it may compress the air in the tank, and send some juice into the deck. A bottom catch cup is designed to take this extra juice and absorb it back into the wick. However, if too much juice escape, some may find their way to the bottom of the tank and leak out. In conclusion, this RTA has a lot of pros and cons. Considering the amazing flavor this tank provides, the exact adjustable airflow, easy to operate JFC, easy building and refilling, I find the pros easily outweigh the cons. I highly recommend this tank and find it one of the best flavor chasers.

PROS
Excellent Build Quality Excellent Design Fantastic Flavor Very Clean Simple to Build Great Price Leak Resistant Simple Design Both DL and MTL Vaping Good Capacity
CONS
Filled from Bottom(Subjective) Not for Larger Complex Wires. Acrylic Tank No Spare Tank No Logos
This little Tank is very well made, considering the price. It arrived clean with no traces of machine oil. However, I do recommend a good wash prior to usage. It has a simple design, with only a few parts, which can be easily disassembled for cleaning. Despite being small, it has a decent capacity and is forgiving and easy to build. This tank is a flavor chaser and provides fantastic flavors and great throat hits. It’s very easy to fill and designed to be Leak Resistant with its floating deck. It is not however without cons: the acrylic tank it has may have a short lifespan with some juices and constant disassembly. The AFC covers a wide range, from MTL to DL, although direct lung vaping is restricted, or for some very restricted. There are no included spare tanks and having a small deck makes this tank ideal for smaller wires and builds. If you like using Clapton, twisted and other complex wires for your coils, you may want to look elsewhere. Overall, this tank is an excellent RTA, and with such low price, a highly recommended tank.
