PROS
Great flavour Almost completely leakproof Innovative and original Perfect machining throughout Holds loadsa juice
CONS
Topcap gets hot Need to remove cap to fill
Just received today and been vaping for about an hour or so with it and here's a first impression: Build quality Very good indeed. All threads are fine, finish is flawless, post holes are rather small, allen key is minute (measured 0.85mm), post screws/threads are fine (with 2 x spares), top cap and body fit well, adjustable copper centre pin. Performance Very good flavour, decent vapour production, airflow works, bad heat dissipation, a mouth-to-lunger, leak proof, gotta remove top cap to fill. Overall it's a great dripper IMHO. Build quality is excellent throughout and there's nothing i can pick fault with. The wire holes are a little small but you should be able to get .5mm wire in 'em ok. The grub screws on the posts are bleedin' tiny and driven by a .85mm allen key that you will NOT want to lose. For the size of the screws it's surprising that the threading is absolutely perfect on 'em. A tad disconcerting is that the unusual airflow means that vapour comes out from under the topcap and there's no way to rotate the thing so it comes out in a certain direction. So you kinda get a faceful of vapour. Flavour is top notch though and i'd put it up there with some of the under-airflow drippers like the Veritas. To drip, you DO need to remove the top-cap. I've forgotten several times and, although it gets a tad gurgly for a while, i guess the juice finally found it's way to where it should be. The top does get rather hot - that'll be the solid lump of steel above the coils and no heatsinks. This thing is almost completely leakproof. Anything short of upside down and you'll not have any issues. It takes around 30 drops without a problem - the limit is set by how high your coils are and the 2 airholes. Airflow is best for mouth-to-lung hits but handles restricted direct hits ok. All in all i'm lovin' the thing and really pleased to have an authentic and innovative dripper that works well (with a coupla minor niggles i can live with).

PROS
Nice, solid, quality feel Wattage accurate Decent (generic) display Good buttons (no rattle) Good value
CONS
Firing d-----elay
The look and feel of this device is great - as it it were a solid ingot of satin finished aluminium. Fit & finish are excellent, buttons clicky and non-rattly, sprung 510 connection, nice engraving and no overhang with 22mm devices. Wattage delivered feels accurate and will actually go up to 23w when using lower builds. It also wakes up quickly - 6th click (and hold) and you're off. My only negative is that there is a marked delay in firing of about half a second. For me this is not enough to break the deal and i've soon got used to it......it's just a shame that it's not quite "right". Got a few of these so-called mini mods now (IPV Mini, Smok M65, iStick 30w, eGrip) and it's equal to the eGrip in quality feel whilst being a tad limited in power to t'others. If you only need 23w, are not fussed about the delay thing, and want a really nice looking/feeling mini (ish) mod you could do worse than buy one of these......i already have.

PROS
Solid build quality Sprung 510 Decent buttons Step-down Great value
CONS
Not really a "mini" Button placement
Had this for about a week now and am really happy with it. Build quality is great and it has a nice, weighty, solid feel in the hand. Ergonomics are good although the addition of a curved button (a-la ZNA 50) would have made things even better. I'm not sure why P4U (and others) call devices of this size "mini". To my mind "midi" would be more appropriate as it's far larger than iStick/Vaporshark, etc which are genuine minis. Screen is generic and shows basic information ok and electronics provide accurate readings and power as compared to the genuine DNA. PWM used to step-down for those that need it. Onboard charging works well and (unlike a couple of recent boxes i've bought) inspires confidence in it's safety. Memory settings easy to use and i find them quite handy to have. All in all i this mod is cracking value, has no real faults and appears to be built well enough to provide long and reliable service. P4U don't always get it right but i honestly think they did with this one and therefore I strongly recommend it.

PROS
Well made Good finish Comfortable Solid
CONS
Fingerprint magnet Aluminium body will damage Will only comfortably hold v.tall attys
Took a punt on this and have been really pleasantly surprised. The machining and finish are perfect and i can find no flaws at all....although the s/s trim is a fingerprint magnet and the aluminium body will suffer with time. The throw on the switch is easily minimised with the use of a drip tip o-ring. Not mentioned in description but 510 is somewhat adjustable. Also no shown in pics is the Kato motif which is engraved on fire button. All in all a great mod that's a little bit different and as well made as you could possibly want.

PROS
Form factor Quality build & feel Works as described Nice buttons Decent threads
CONS
Finish won't last 0.1 minimum TC Slow charging via USB No instructions, tools or spares
Nice little mod that looks as cool in the hand as it does in pictures. It's easy to hold and operate - button placement no issue for me. Buttons are some of the best i've seen on any mod. Has a nice quality, solid metal, weighty feel to it with good overall build quality. Operates as advertised. That's the good stuff.......now the cons: The finish is painted and won't last - after just a couplathree days, it's coming off. It only charges @ 0.39v via USB port so takes a long time from empty. Strangely, it only reads down to 0.1 ohms in TC mode. It'll fire stuff below that (and seems to behave) but the reading will be high. This is as advertised so can't really grumble. Came in a tatty little box with no other contents = 0/10 for presentation. It would have been nice to have instructions, USB cable and an allen key to adjust the deck (which doesn't seem to adjust anyway). Not had any problems fitting various devices on it though and it appears to work well in both power and TC mode. Anyone who's used to DNA/China DNA devices won't have any issues operating the thing. Overall i'm actually very pleased with the device. It does what it should, works well and (apart from the paint) has a quality feel to it. Above all, it's a form factor thing for me and i just love using it.
