PROS
Straight out of the box function is very good. Finish is nice. Slightly better taste than a non-pyrex Vivi. No leaks spring loaded positive pin
CONS
It still reminds me of a Vivi Plastic drip tip Cap can be fiddly to replace but seals well slightly tight draw.
A little early for a real review but this seems to be a really nice Vivi.

PROS
Easy filling with small diameter syringe, too large and expect bypass and a mess. Being able to lock the carto in place with the set screw in the base of the tank. Reasonable tank capacity. Good fit and finish. No leaks so far.
CONS
The cartos taste as though they were glued together and when in use they taste as if the glue is burning. Limited drip tip ability being the fill hole screw is in the way of some drip tips with wider bases. No air channels in the base so flush mount mods will cut off air flow. Plastic tank material.
The only reason I would choose this tank over the Artemis is easier filling without removal from the battery/mod. The cartos are absolute junk so just toss it right off the bat the burnt bubber/glue taste isn't worth the juice wasted. Another fill hole with screw on top would allow for easier filling allowing air to escape as juice took it's place.

PROS
Hits very well when it works Construction seems to be very stable
CONS
I've built coils to 1.8 that this device will not fire. The ohms resistance checker is all over the place and far from accurate, now I ahve to find the time to return it, it's a paperweight.
I liked it until the ohms resistance circuit went south, it now a frustrating P.O.S.!

PROS
It works very well once machined correctly.
CONS
You better own a lathe if yours shows up like mine did.
The AIOS wouldn't even thread into my Chi-you because the threads were not milled deep enough. I fortunately have a lathe and am skilled enough to manage what needed to be done. The threads were at least 4 thousandths over the diameter of the threads in theChi-you clone I have. The base of the threads was even too large for the female threads to go over. Both the positive and negative posts came lose when I went to lossen the screws for the connection of the kanthal. Tightening the posts was all that was needed. If the other I ordered before this one showed up shows up the same it will be sent back.

PROS
Capacity
CONS
weight weak center pins air holes didn't align center post correctly
First build flooded terribly, second build was just as bad and than it was suggested to go big with the coil and wick. In the process of the rebuild I took the atomizer apart for cleaning and while assembling the center post broke, not on just one but on both I bought. I swiped a center post from another klone and made it work but not before drilling the air hole out so air channels would meet. Its still trying to flood but hasn't yet. The restricted air flow from the hole on the outside to the center post is the reason these like to flood besides one of mine being drilled off center.
