PROS
Easy top fill Holds 3.5 Ml on the first fill Doesn't leak if you understand what you are doing. Perfect Size!
CONS
You need a needle tip bottle or a blunt tip syringe to use the top fill feature. I like the twist to fill version of top fill that this site provides better.
I received the 2 tanks I ordered a week ago. They worked flawlessly so far! I assembled them with all Kangertech authentic parts. The O-rings in the top fill cap are NOT recessed as in previous models. The finish seems very durable. They have not leaked at all! You just need to fill them quickly, and you can't leave the top fill open too long, because it needs a vacuum to prevent leaking through the coils. Its always nice to be able to crack open the top of the tank if your wick is too tight preventing proper wicking. I just drilled out the top caps of the tanks I received after a week of use, so that I can use the twist to fill method of other subtank minis on this site, which I much prefer. A 2 mm drill bit and a chamfer bit to debur it was all that was needed. I just taped the cap in the position I wanted, and drilled the top cap through the tank section.

PROS
It is easier to fill the tank. If you fully remove the top cap you can fill it with a typical glass dropper. It increases the amount of E-liquid the tank holds compared to the authentic kangertec subtank mini !00% compatible with authentic kangertec subtank mini bases and RBAs. Threads are well made.
CONS
You will need a needle tip dropper top to fill the tank without fulling removing the cap. The cap is very thin. The cap almost didn't close fully past the secondary holes in the tank.
First off I measured the tank post that enters the RBA, which was 5.83 mm. The original kangertec subtank mini measured 5.82 mm, which is an extremely close in tolerance insuring proper function. Next I completely disassembled it. I cleaned it with alcohol and distilled water, to remove any oil. I didn't find any loose chips from the machining, and the threads were clean. The machining is well done. I next, I reassembled it with authentic black Kangertec O-rings, which worked as well as the ones that came with it. I realized that the top cap holes almost didn't clear the bottom fill holes when fully closed. I worked it down as far as it would go. I blew on the bottom of the tank while plugging the drip tip to make sure a seal was made on the fill hole, without detecting any problems. ( THE CAP WAS VERY CLOSE TO NOT CLOSING FULLY ) I assembled it with my authentic kangertec subtank mini base, and authentic subtank mini RBA+ coil head. I have not detected any leaks or issues yet, and with all of the measurements I made, I do not expect any to occur. The tank has never leaked at all in the past. The fill holes in the top cap measures 2.09mm in diameter which is to small to fill with anything except a needle point dropper. With the top cap removed, a glass dropper does seal on the small O-rings for easy filling. My needle tip droppers have not arrived yet. It looks very nice. It does increase the volume of E-liquid it can hold. The knurling on the top cap matches the knurling on the base. The top caps stainless steel is a bit thin, but I do not regret purchasing this replacement tank at all. It would be nice if the fill hole was a bit larger.

PROS
Top Fill Works You can use the top fill feature to release tank vacuum and increase wicking Increased E-juice volume over the authentic Kangertec subtank mini Does not leak. Nice Finish
CONS
You need a 15 gauge blunt tip syringe or needle tip dropper to use the top fill feature effectively. If you forget and leave the cap in the fill position you will lose vacuum in the tank, which will cause it to leak out of the adjustable air holes in the base.
I ordered 2 of these tanks, and I love them! They do not leak, and I did not have to do any modifications to make them work. I recommend that you buy a 15 gauge blunt tip syringe for filling this tank. You just have to line up the holes on the top cap and tank to fill it. Its E-juice capacity is just under 6 mils with an authentic Kangertec RBA+. The tank measures 2 mm taller than the Authentic Kangertec subtank mini with the same glass. I measured the post that enters the RBA, which measured .1 mm larger than my Authentic Kangertec Subtank mini. It works perfectly. I measured the depth of the step drilled fill holes, which came out to 1.03 mm, which is a bit deep for an O-ring that is around 1.00 mm thick, but it seals and works perfectly. It works with all authentic Kangertec O-rings, drip tips, glasses, Coil heads, RBAs, and Adjustable airflow bases.

Top fill is nice! Top filling gives it a 3.5 ml E-juice capacity Compact size compared to any other top fill tank
CONS
You need a needle tip bottle or blunt tip syringe to use the top fill feature. I still like the other top fill version better, where you only need to twist the top cap a fraction of a turn to fill. It needs to be filled quickly and quickly sealed using the top fill feature to prevent flooding.
So far, I love this tank. I received two tanks so far. They hold 3.5 ml of E-liquid. They work perfectly with authentic Kangertech O-rings, adjustable air flow bases, RBAs, and factory made coils. The O-rings for the top fill are NOT recessed, making them function properly. They do not leak in any way! When I measured everything, they were perfect when compared to my authentic Kangertech subtank mini for proper function. Please note: I am only using AUTHENTIC KANGERTECH O-rings, Adjustable air flow bases, and RBA+s with this tank. I truly love the size and function of this tank! Ohhh! The two I received were not soaked in cutting oil this time, but I washed them anyways! I will eventually drill the top caps to match the function of my other top fill subtank minis, with the twist to fill feature. Keep a vacuum in the tank to prevent leaking out of the coil.

Excellent machining
CONS
The adjustment starts out a bit tight.
It works perfectly will all of my subtank mini tanks, RBAs, and coil heads. The air flow adjustment does start out a bit tight, but loosens up with E-liquid and use.
