good price useful for more than just wrapping coils!
CONS
wimpy handles
Like most that purchased this item I was hoping for something easy to hold while wrapping atomizer coils. The handles do not inspire confidence, especially when using thick gauge wire. I have gone back to using a drill bit stuck into a piece of wood. These are a nice concept though, maybe with better handles... but you get what you pay for with this one.

Arrived clean, shiny copper switch and magnet ring Good magnets great threading
I have been very pleased with this 4Nine. No modifications necessary, but I did add vent holes (dual purpose for easy cap removal). I tried to make the tube sections look perfectly flush, after a couple of sheets of sandpaper it is better but not perfect. If this would drive you nuts, get the more expensive version and sacrifice the proper height and needing to use an extra magnet for battery spacing.

deep well good threads great airflow
CONS
510 threads are much longer than normal 510 insulator came too long, needed sanding
For some mods like the 4Nine, the 510 threads are too long. This was an easy fix with sandpaper after removing the center pin. The positive post looked bent and there was random leaking out the 510 connection, another easy fix with sandpaper: -Remove the 510 center pin screw and insulator, leave the upper positive post and insulator in place. -Push the 510 insulator back in. If it pushes the upper positive post up and/or sideways, the 510 insulator is too long and is causing a gap (and possibly even a leak). -Remove the 510 insulator again and sand/remove a bit from the "top" (closest to deck when installed). -Repeat until upper positive pin sits flush and does not move after installing 510 insulator or center pin.

good machining/threading
CONS
very heavy large size wasted space
39 grams doesn't seem like much until it's placed at the very top of an atomizer. The cap is solid, space wasting design that could have been cut out to allow more juice capacity. Still, the machining is great and the weight is listed in the specs. I would not buy this again now that there are better, shorter, lighter, and nicer looking replacement caps available.

compass works fine bell rings
CONS
arrow points south
Living in the northern hemisphere, I'm not used to a compass arrow pointing south. It doesn't change the N,S,E,W function, but it can be confusing. The bell makes a single ding sound, nothing special there.
