PROS
Very bright, Handy size
CONS
510 threading is aluminium, So will wear over time.
I'd never owned a "Proper" LED torch before I bought the first one of these. I assumed that they couldn't be proportionately better than a filament bulbed torch to warrant their considerably higher price...... I was wrong ! These little baby are far and away the brightest torches I've ever used. To cycle through its three mods you just pulse the power off then back on within a second. From high power you go to low power, Then you get to an epilepsy inducing rapid flash mode (Not quite sure what that mode would be used for), Before going back to high power mods. It seems that the O-ring seal behind the lense is one of the glow in the dark ones, So even when you turn it off you still have a few minutes where that ring is clearly visible (Handy if you dropped it in pitch black conditions I suppose). It's perfectly happy being used on anything from an unregulated 4500mah box mod, all the way down to a 350mah eGo (As long as you don't mind having to press the button every 8 to 10 seconds once the eGo's "Over time cutout" kicks in). Most people don't carry a proper torch unless they think they may need one that day, and most of the dedicated torched are at least as large as an 18650 mod, But this things's smaller than a 10ml juice bottle and a perfect size to put in with your out and about vaping kit or in the bottom of a jacket pocket for those rare times you actually NEED a torch. Most vapers have at least one mod with them at all times, and we tend to make sure they have a reasonable level of charge in them. So this would mean you never get caught out without a charged torch again. I managed to kill the first one of these I bought. Being stupid I tried it on my eVic. Apart from the start up resistance jumping between 0.5 and 8ohms, it worked (When caught at a resistance range the eVic liked). Flushed with success I tried it on my SX350 box mod. I set it to 5W and started it up. The torch worked for 3 or 4 presses before I caught the torch head at a high resistance moment and the SX350 decided to compensate by whacking the voltage up to 7.something volts !!!! Whoops (As you can guess, It didn't like that much. :) ). That one was properly fried, But as I'd been so impressed with how it worked, I went and bought another 2 of them. :)

PROS
Reasonable compact, Convenient form factor, Good choice of up to 15.5 to 16mm clearos to use on it.
CONS
Non protected 18350's might not be long enough to work as is, Positive side of 510 is connected with wire.
I got two of these a couple of days back, One black and one red (More like dark pink. :( ). First impression is that they're not bad. The hinge seems quite solid and the whole mod feels pretty well put together. I bought these as "In the car" mods because I find trying to lock bottom button tube mods while driving VERY distracting, But if you don't lock them they can start firing while you're going over bumps. I don't need to lock these ones though as they happily sit vertically in a cup holder. Because of this, I didn't bother using the supplyd attys as I'd be refilling them up every 10 miles. Instead, I got a couple of the "RGM2 Bottom Coil Clearomizer" (SKU1535301) to use in them. They fir quite well, But they could go a little bigger. Looking at how these fit, I would say the maximum size of atty that these could hold vertically would be somewhere around 15.5mm to 16mm. Now to the "Tweaking" I mentioned in the title. I only ever use protected batteries in mech mods. Because of this I sometimes have problems as they tend to be 3 to 5mm longer than the standard size unprotected batteries. When used in these pipe mods one didn't work. Seems the minimum length battery that this mod can take as it comes out the box is closer to 38 to 39mm rather than the 35mm you'd expect. It's an easy job to sort this though. You can either add a "Vapesafe fuse" to it, Or do what I did...... I sanded some of the chamfer off the top of the top of the main body "Tube" to make them screw down far enough that the switch pin can now make contact with the battery. With non protected batteries, You can also sand a couple of millimetres off the bottom of the telescoping tube too. This took me a grand total of 5 minutes to "Fix" both of mine, So it's well within the abilities of everyone here to rub it on a bit of sand paper !!!!! I don't think adding a magnet would be a good idea to bridge the space though. If you put it on the batteries negative it might make contact with the sides of the tube and bypass the switch. On the positive end it could touch the side of the tube and cause a dead short when you press the button. You COULD safely use a magnet if you insulated it's circumference with shrinkwrap or insulation tape, But then, You wouldn't even need it to be a magnet......... Even a small copper coin with the edges electrically insulated would probably work ok. :) The biggest disappointment with these is that the Positive side of 510 is connected to the rest of the body with wire. I think it's only going to have a finite number of "Foldings" in it before it breaks. It looks like it wouldn't be that hard to replace when that finally happens, Or maybe rethinking it slightly to have two brass rods to transfer the power to the 510...... I'll have to look into the viability of that when the wire finally goes. The wire does mean that you wouldn't want to be sub ohming with this mod though. So, It's got good and bad points. But I still think the good points outway the bad, And for what I want it to do, I'm happy with it.

PROS
Ideal for those lazy days when vaping in bed !!!! :)
CONS
Not a thing.
These won't suit all atomizers, They look best on ones with a flat top. I use them on bottom fed attys for when I'm laying down on the sofa or in bed. With a long drip tip they crank it over to an angle so you don't even have to lift your head to have a vape ! :) The ultimate lazy ba***rd vaping accessory ! :D Well worth getting a set.

PROS
Neater spirals than you could make at home
CONS
None so far
I used 2 of these in a Helio dripper to get a solid 0.6ohm. I fitted them into the base with the spirals facing the air holes, But about 4mm away from them. I then filled in all the space behind/below them with cotton. This worked great because the air hits just below the middle of the heating element and has nowhere to go but up as all the rest of the chambers taken up with cotton. The cotton also covers all the long legs to stop them hot spotting. with this setup the dripper would hold about 1ml of juice without any leaking. After that I did a 0.3ohm quad coil build that had the spirals facing each other in pairs and filled up the space behind them with cotton again. This was a bit too much though. It would suck all the juice out of the cotton in only a handful of vapes !!! So, As you can see, These things aren't just for the "Dry content" brigade ! :)
