PROS
M2L Good vape
CONS
a bit tricky to build
I don't know why it took me so long to get this one, I guess enough attys LOL! This is a very nice tank for M2L and low wattage (below 20W). It gives a slow, relaxing and flavorful vape. This is a tank where you don't pull for vapor but instead, let the atomizer feed you the vapor. It is a bit tricky to get the build right but when you do, you are treated with a very flavorful vape. What seems to be working for me is 28AWG, 2mm core, around 1 ohm, fed with rayon and having the wick split in 2 and going to all 4 channels, 17W. Hope this helps

PROS
Genius design Small
CONS
Electronics a bit iffy not easy to clean if atty leaks Base a bit wobbly
First let me say that I was one of the first ones to request this clone. As a matter of fact I requested it when I heard about it, even before the original was available. I think that Chel (the modder) did a genius design here. IMO, he managed to put together the most compact regulated mod with tank atty and replaceable 18650 battery by placing the electronics at the bottom and having the tank recessed in the mod ... genius. Now, the mod itself is nicely built, the finish on the mod has been holding well, especially given the fact that this has been my everyday mod for the past few months. Some find it a bit awkward to fire due to the button placement but I don't have a problem with it. The deck height is slightly adjustable however I would set it once and leave it alone as someone on the forum mentioned that rotating it also twist the inside wire to the electronics. A couple of cons: - Electronics a bit weird. The battery level never shows depleted or that it needs recharging. Instead the vapor production diminishes. When that happens, the battery is at about 3.5V. If looking at the display when firing, the battery symbol kind of disappears or doubles, anyway, to pretty poor coding there. - If the atty leaks, it's not easy to clean since the deck is recessed (a con that goes with the pros of the design) - the screw that holds the deck in place sometimes loosens and then the base becomes wobbly. Overall, I'm very happy with the mod and will recommend it.

PROS
UV400 lots of lenses and accessories Nice case
CONS
Replacing the lenses is a huge PITA
I find this to be a great value, the case alone is worth $10 IMO. Got those because someone on the thread took them to his optometrist and confirmed that they are indeed UV400 which is nice. Obviously those are clones of the Oakleys Radarlock and in that sense they are good quality clones. Now for the Radarlock system, what a PITA, I tell you. I have to twist and bend the frame to put the lenses, then my locking system also don't seem to be operating that well, etc.. a big PITA, I would never pay full price for the originals just for this reason. My suggestion, pick the lenses you like the most and stick with them LOL!

PROS
Small Novelty I love the switch
CONS
Crappy Ceramic Not straight forward to wick No removable DT hot
So I have mixed feelings about this one. I really wanted to love this one as I'm a sucker for tiny mods and this one is as tiny as it gets. The good: TIIIIINY! Novelty, Looks nice and different, Definitely will get people to comment on it, Did I say Tiny? Now the bad: I'm not one that likes to spend hours and days fiddling with my coils and try every single build I can possibly imagine. I just don't have time for that. I usually stick to simpler and conservative build that just work (for me) I find the building method with wick through the pin, then retaining clip to be a major PITA! Then there are the ceramics. They are very fragile and chip or break easily. Then even with the ceramic that didn't break, I built it a dozen times, with different wire gauges, different resistance and the only thing I got after the first 2 puff right after dripping was dry hits. I tried to add a bed of cotton but same thing, dry hits. I finally gave up on the ceramics and tried mesh. It was my first mesh build ever and worked right away on first try once I managed to get rid of the hot spots. No more dry hits. My build is at about 0.7/0.8 and I find drip tip to get very hot, to the point that it burns my lips. This is a combination of it being a very short drip tip, being very close to the coil and me being a MTL vaper and using restricted airflow (I use the 2nd smallest hole). I wish the DT would be removable and I could replace it with a longer one. The vape is OK but nothing spectacular. As for build quality, I love the clicky short throw switch but the threads are a bit gritty and need some sanding. In the end, for the price, it's a good deal if nothing else but the form factor and novelty factor. Unfortunately, while I thought that I would be using it as one of my main drippers, the cons outweigh the pros for me and it will probably spend most of its time on the shelf, taking it out maybe when I want to quickly try my new batch of juice.

It's sweet but can't really say that it tastes like butterscotch. I don't really enjoy it on it's own but it's OK when mixing with some tobacco flavors.
