Sharp Durable Cheap
I use it for almost a year to cut heating wires in rebuilding atomizers. The wires I cut with it are mainly made of Kanthal, Nichrome, Nickel and SS-316L, which are all much harder than typical electric copper wires. Nevertheless, the cutting edge seem as sharp as new. I even inspected it with a 60x microscope and found no signs of degradation.

Interesting quarter turn ability Relatively smooth and quick Cheap
CONS
Stickers peel off
This item is much better then the other 3x3x1 puzzle SKU 1147200. Not only does it turn real smooth, but it also uniquely allows 90 degree rotations, so that it could turn into many formations – not only the flat 3x3x1 that is shown in the pictures. This is why it has stickers not just on the outside, but also in between the parts, because these internal surfaces can become external – very neat and truly fun! Unfortunately the stickers are of poor quality and tend to peel after short time. This is a especially pity due to the aforementioned fact that internal surfaces can become external and vice verse, so that when they turn inside, the friction between the parts is stressing them even more. In my opinion, this smart design could really benefit from a sticker-free construction. Anyway, despite of the stickers issue, this is an enjoyable puzzle well worth its price.

Compact Bright Sturdy stainless-steel construction Looks good Inexpensive
Very bright on 14500. If too bright, could be turned to a lower power by half a click.

Cheap Very good build quality for its price Sensitive and consistent
Surprisingly good, especially for its price. Unlike some cheap digital calipers I've tried in the past, this caliper is actually very accurate and consistent. For example, it is never confused by fast sliding.

PROS
1) Longer "nose" easier to insert into the tank. 2) Additional removable silicon O-ring over the "nose" allows good compatibility with a variety of bottom coil tanks, such as EVOD clones, T4, V2, etc.
CONS
1) No NR wire sections leading to a burnt taste. 2) Loose silicon gasket causing varying resistance.
I was attracted to this model since I had good experience in the past with 2.0 ohm cartomizers. Unfortunately, unlike most EVOD coils I've tried until now, this coil is made only of resistive wire. Because of that, about 6 mm of wire between the wick and the bottom electric contacts is exposed. These exposed sections heat up too much and cause a burnt flavor. I recommend instead the 1.8 ohm (SKU 1387601 and 1387600) or even the 2.5 ohm (SKU 1361500 and 1386200) coils, which are better built, having NR ("no resistance") wires welded over their exposed sections. However, if you intend to rebuild this atomizer with NR-R-NR wire, I do recommend it.
