PROS
Optional LED Magnetic battery door Looks decent for a box Ti and SS modes (have to purchase through app) Firmware update (Windows) Great wattage for the money
CONS
Can harm battery wraps Bit of a fingerprint magnet for a black mod Android app can be wonky Small firing delay
Great mod for the money, but some features are a bit rough around the edges. I was finally able to buy the Ti and SS updates on Android 5.0 after the latest app update. It's really a pain that they make you buy through a wonky app. I borrowed a smarty-phone from a friend because I don't have one. Some people with older versions of android might still have problems. You'll need to fiddle with either the coefficient or the initial ohms to get SS working better. But it's sure nice to have a Ti and SS option in this price range. It has a small but noticeable firing delay, apparently so that you don't fire it while clicking for menu settings or locking the device. The LED is nice and color adjustable. Can also be turned off if you prefer. Bluetooth can also be turned off. I was able to upgrade to the latest firmware on my Windows PC without a problem. The upgrade software is on Smoktech's site. Remove the batteries and hold the firing button while plugging the supplied USB cable into the mod and continue holding it for the whole upgrade until it says "PASS". If you flip the screen, it also flips the up and down buttons so that they are mislabeled. But it doesn't flip the buttons for the new coil/same coil prompt.

PROS
Perfect hand fit Very low voltage drop Adjustable copper 510 pin Classy logo - straight to the point and unobtrusive No slip grip Need I say... Cuprum!
CONS
Finish isn't perfect Tricky to clean some of the contacts
Since this is more of an oval tube than a box, it's perfectly comfortable in the hand. The weight and grip are excellent. Performance is high and looks are great. Might just be mine, but one of the four screws refused to come out. Not a big deal, just something to note. I was able to torch the other 3 screw tops to a bronze tone, then put them back in. The one I couldn't remove was on the bottom, so it doesn't show. It is not clear coated.

PROS
Leak Resistant Good Performance Very adjustable copper 510 pin Plenty of airflow 2 top caps included Looks great Easy to drip through wide drip tip Very adjustable airflow
CONS
Magnetic Screws Wicking a little fiddly Delrin top caps (preference) Can't overdrip like with the Aeolus
It comes with 2 top caps. One is the one with the wide bore drip tip pictured, and the other top cap has a smaller hole and comes with a standard 510 drip tip that can be swapped for others if desired. The wide bore drip tip is very easy to drip through. The airflow is very open with the wide bore and the AFC all the way open. It can be shut down all the way closed or anywhere in between. The way the airflow goes from top to bottom makes wicking a little different. You have to keep the wick away from the lower air slots, so I pushed my wicks towards the center and drip towards the center. If you overdrip, you will get gurgling. I still prefer the direct top airflow of the Aeolus over this style because you can drip more with it. However, you don't have to raise the coils on this one, so some may prefer this. The copper 510 pin is very adjustable so you can adjust it for hybrids. The screws are magnetic and their threading size is M2.5 if you want to replace them.

PROS
Great Bore Flawless finish
It does help dissipate heat and it looks good! The wide bore allows good airflow. The finish matches my gold colored big Veritas. I did have to switch to smaller O-Rings since the Veritas hole is just a tad too small.
