everything but the grub screws
CONS
grub screws
TL;DR: This version is excellent! I own both the authentic and this ULTON clone of the GT4S. Aside from cosmetics (no logo & obfuscated serial number), there's only a few minor differences. First, the machining is less "ultra premium" than the original, but it's still quite excellent. I'd honestly say that the machining on the ULTON is better than most mass-produced atomizers. Second, the tank material feels slightly thinner, but I haven't measured both with a caliper yet. Third, the o-ring that controls the JFC is thinner. This is actually a win, because it makes the ULTON's JFC a bit easier to use. (The rest of the o-rings have very similar tolerances to the authentic.) Fourth, the drip tip is slightly different. The inner bore is the same in the neck of the tip, but it is a bit wider / more open at the top. It's not obvious unless you are looking for it, though. I struggled to find most of these differences. You'd have to compare them side-by-side to notice, and this ULTON clone is still an excellent performer. My only real con is how easily the grub screws wanted to strip out. I knew not to wrench them down, but one started losing grip on my first installation. I would definitely find replacements ASAP. Past the minor differences, the ULTON clone is still an amazing performer. Coil installation is easy & wicking is very forgiving. Draw is incredibly smooth & still has some restriction to it, which helps provide intense flavor. By the way, the flavor is absolutely excellent. (Yes, it's a tall tank, but the deck actually sits high up.) The GT4/GT4S is tied for first place on my list of single coil RTA's. The contender, is, of course, the HotCig Centaur RTA. Centaur delivers slightly punchier, more intense flavor, but at the expense of a more turbulent draw and slightly less resolution of individual flavors in the juice. In short, the GT4/4S is very refined and smooth, while the Centaur feels more wild & raw. Both are great RTA's, though, and these two have effectively shelved every other RTA I own. I am running this with a 3.0 or 3.5 mm ID Ni80 wire, 4 wraps of 26x3/38 fused clapton around 38-41 watts. It also works great with SS316L 30x4/40 fused clapton wire. Taifun made an amazing design here. For a single coil flavor chaser RTA, this thing is just about perfect. In short, this is a great clone of an amazing atomizer. I'd recommend either the authentic or the ULTON over a no-name clone any day. I have a no-name clone of the GT4 (SKU 9655032), and I could immediately tell the difference in build quality between that one & this ULTON clone.

Nice quality
CONS
Color lottery :(
Feels good on the mouth, nice bore-to-height ratio makes good flavor. My 5-pack included 3 that were almost identical color (tan-brown). If you can be patient and submit a ticket regarding color choice, OR not care about the color, this is a good buy for 510 tips.

PROS
Flavor for dayyyyyyys ease of build/wick very smooth draw
CONS
See below
Two negatives that need to be mentioned: First issue: The o-ring under the AFC is extremely loose & get bunched up easily. It's easier to unscrew the tank & pull the AFC ring off & put it where you want it, rather than trying to turn it while screwed to a tank. The spare was also too loose. This could be fixed with a replacement, so it's not a huge deal. The ULTON GT4S and authentic GT4S do not have this issue. Second issue: The tank shield screws tight around the glass, but using the JFC will grab this assembly and untighten it enough to cause weeping / small leaks. In other words, everything will be tight but getting the JFC enough wiggle room to operate will cause that assembly to have a small gap, so it will weep until you re-tighten it. Aaaaand it's basically impossible to re-tighten while the tank is fully assembled. My solution is to disassemble the tank/glass, tighten it on its own, and reinstall it while the JFC ring was in the open position. That way, it only weeps when the JFC is shut, which should only be while refilling. It's not a deal-breaker, but it is potentially aggravating, and something you have to be mindful of. Maybe I'm a dummy and missing something, but I couldn't figure another way around it. Have not tested the authentic GT4 or ULTON GT4, so I can't comment on that. The ULTON GT4S and authentic GT4S do not have this issue. Coil installation is easy & wicking is very forgiving. Draw is incredibly smooth & still has some restriction to it, which helps provide intense flavor. By the way, the flavor is absolutely excellent. (Yes, it's a tall tank, but the deck actually sits near the middle of the atomizer.) The GT4/GT4S is tied for first place on my list of single coil RTA's. The contender, is, of course, the HotCig Centaur RTA. Centaur delivers slightly punchier, more intense flavor, but at the expense of a more turbulent draw and slightly less resolution of individual flavors in the juice. In short, the GT4/4S is very refined and smooth, while the Centaur feels more wild & raw. Both are great RTA's, though, and these two have effectively shelved every other RTA I own. In summation, even with the cons, this is an excellent RTA. I probably should have bought the ULTON clone, though. Either way, this clone has convinced me to save up for an authentic. Taifun really nailed it for mid-wattage single coil flavor chasers. I would take a clone of the GT4 over the remaining available single coil RTA's (namely Gear & Revolver, etc) any day.

PROS
Flavor Machining Packaging
CONS
Chamber reducer is super thin, and wouldn't fit once I had my coil installed.
Fantastic little flavor banger. Machining is impeccable with the Ulton version. The chamber reducer is worryingly thin, I'm sure it will break. Airflow is smooth, and not as restricted as Hadaly or Narda, far less open than Wasp. Air has a soft whistle, but with this flavor, who cares? By the way, the flavor is incredible. My other 22 mm RDA's will be collecting dust on a stand, getting jealous. This is The One. (for me, anyway). Oh yeah, and the Mjolnir can stay, too.

flavor x 1,000
Very good quality clone. Have purchased others cheaper clones from other vendors & this one has better machining, arrived free from machine oil, etc. Flavor is wonderful. Produces a very tasty yet 'relaxed' vape. Perfect for single 18650 squonkers in mid-wattage (30-40ish) ranges. Certainly could go with a bigger build, but it would probably get really hot, really quick. Drip tip mount is a bit small, so you'll need to choose a slightly smaller drip tip or just sand one down a bit. This is one of my favorite atomizers. It just produces a good, smooth draw with plenty of flavor for your face hole.
