PROS
--Battery lasts a reasonable time --Good to have a VV eGo
CONS
--Both 510 and eGo threads are bad on the 2 i got --Switch on one has no tactile click anymore tho it still works fine
It's good to have an eGo battery that doesn't go weak towards the end of the charge. Good to be able to dial the voltage up and down, very useful. Battery life is reasonable. The 510 threads are bad in the 2 i bought. Bad batch of parts i guess. Half my atty's won't screw in, the rest feel like they're going to strip the treads if i'm not extra careful. For me that's ok since i have eGo batteries i can use for spare parts. The click has gone out of the clicky switch on one of the 2. So, very useful batteries, but lapses in quality control. Haven't had them long enough to know if they have good longevity.

PROS
-good size -easier to work with than twisted wick -good taste
CONS
-none
This has become my standard wick for 2mm coil builds. i find that if i were to use the same size wick as the coil diameter, then it's too loose and i get dry hits and burnt tastes. So i've been pulling slightly larger wicks thru the coils, and it's worked well so far. This is nice wick. Easy to work with, doesn't come apart as easily as plain twisted wick. Holds a good amount of juice too. Comes pretty clean, don't have to wash it before use, but i do anyway since all the handling it gets when i'm building with it causes skin oils and other stuff to transfer to it.

PROS
--very nice quality of flavouring
CONS
--not my cup of tea --very light taste
i come from the pipe smoking world, and there a turkish tobacco is dark and spicy, sometimes quite heavy. This is more like a perfume spritzer from the clearance counter at the pharmacy after the spray's been diluted 2:1 with water. However, the flavouring's high quality. Nothing icky abt the taste that's there, even tho there's not much of that. It's a matter of preference. i expected the kindo turkish tobacco flavour i'm used to; this is something out of an old episode of "I Spy".

PROS
-good choco flavour
CONS
-big gunker
The bottle i received is dark brown rather than the clear yellow of the photos. The choco flavour's good, and there's some body to it. Can't ask for more from vapour. Well it does gunk up the coil pretty quick. i'm using it in a Genesis type atty with ss mesh wick, so i can wipe off the gunk rather than having to clean and dry burn it. i definitely like it for a no-nicotine vape. Just remember the choco taste will go south if you let it gunk up.

PROS
-Nice machining -Good glass tank -Open build deck
CONS
-Drip tip more a fashion statement than a piece of ergo engineering. -Couple of tiny grommets to keep track of if you disassemble it.
It's an excellent genesis type atty if you're looking for something this size. Tried various ways of wicking with braided silica, got lots of dry hits. Ended up using one of the premade mesh wicks it comes with, worked very well. Burned the mesh a couple more times, wrapped a 2.6ohm coil on it, popped it in. Good build for a plain eGo battery. Hits well, can take small sips as well as good hits from it. Air hole is big enough for a single coil. Taste is very good if tinged with that mesh wick mouth feel. Personally i like the turned finish. It also gives a good grip as well as dissipates heat better than a shiny surface. On the build deck one of the holes for the wicks is threaded and there are extra screws in the kit, so you can close that up and use just one wick if you wanna. When you disassemble it for cleaning, remember to take care to keep track of the 2 teeny tiny white grommets that insulate the center positive post. Can't lose those since the atty won't work without them.
