1 of 2 arrived safely
CONS
1 of 2 arrived as sharp pointy shards!
The glass itself is excellent - if you're lucky enough to receive it in one piece. It comes in a little bubble wrap bag that is wrapped around the outside of the glass tube. There is nothing protecting the inside of the tube, so it is easily crushed during shipping. It took me exactly 3 weeks to receive them. I don't mind the wait, but they are not packaged well enough for that kind of shipping duration. Currently awaiting reply on support ticket. I submitted 3 pictures.

Good Price Works in my Aerotank Mega even if not designed to
CONS
1.9Ω instead of 1.8Ω - no big deal
At the time, they were sold out of the coils I wanted for my aerotank mega, but I read that if you flip the top silicone piece upside down, old protank coils will work in a protank3 or aerotank. I find that they work for me even without the top silicone piece on at all, but I suppose it depends on what juice you're using. Easy to adjust either way. No leaks and all 5 of them work! They tested at 1.9Ω which is within acceptable variation. They are also possible to rebuild. Very pleased!

PROS
Copper contact Great Finish AFC supports single coil option Pre-built coils actually work Adjustable contact
CONS
Needs a real good cleaning Dual coil AFC inner holes could be bigger
I took the advice of others and soaked this in alcohol overnight before using. Works just fine. The pre-installed coil build measures at 1.71 ohms and does fire OK. The gold finish looks better than the picture. The smaller size means it has a naturally reduced chamber. I plan to expand the dual option air holes, which shouldn't be too difficult on this one. Awesome buy for the price as it even comes with a copper contact that is screwdriver adjustable!

PROS
Size Good finish Deck holes are big enough w/o drilling AFC Center pin is "hammer adjustable" :P Comes with wire, wicks, and spare o-rings Nice looking drip tip
CONS
No replacement glass Small screws and washer not stainless Would prefer solid copper rather than plating Somewhat skinny stainless 510 Air holes still need drilling Tiny fill hole (needle only) Machine oil - clean it very well Disappointing capacity for its size (knew when ordering)
Ok, so you will need to do some work on this but it's not as horrible as it sounds. The simple fact that you don't have to drill the wick holes in a super thick stainless deck is a godsend. Air hole drilling isn't as bad because you don't have to drill through as much stainless at once. You could do it with a thin needle file too with some patience. Although it doesn't technically have an adjustable 510, I removed the top screw and washer and thwacked the center post with a hammer (not too hard) to protrude it into hybrid-capable mode. Make sure you have some different empty juice bottles saved up for when the glass breaks so you will have something that fits that you can cut up. The glass is very tight and I couldn't remove it, so I just removed the sleeve and cap for cleaning. Putting it in alcohol immediately causes a rainbow effect, so there is machine oil. The glass and 2 o-rings broke while sitting in the cleaning bath. Nice of them to include spare o-rings :) I already knew I would have to replace the glass at some point, so I had bottles saved up. All that being said, there are so few good options in the 26650 category that it's worth dealing with some fixable inconveniences to have a good looking good performer. A genny can hold its own with the newer designs coming out if you build it right, and this one does work. Just be sure to clean it really well and make sure no residue is left.

Big and long
Ordered a pack of 2. Was worried there would be problems in shipping, but they were extremely well packaged with lots of bubble wrap and made it here in perfect condition!
