PROS
-Machining and surface finish excellent. -Threads all turn smoothly. -Good engineering behind the design. -A finely constructed device. Not a stone crusher.
CONS
-Takes time and a light hand to work in miniature when coil building. -Have to unscrew the plastic tank to refill. -A finely constructed device. Not a stone crusher.
My first RBA. Used what's in the included spares kit to make a coil. Made a 2mm microcoil with a gap in the middle, 5 wraps each side. 2mm twisted silica u-wick. Works relatively well with an eGo battery. 2mm silica u-wick doesn't transport e-juice fast enough the way i made the heating coil. Every few hits have to wait for the wicking to catch up. Will try some other wicking set up. Vapes nice. Taste is good. Excellent tolerances in machining. A quality piece of kit. Expected a lot less for this price.

PROS
-fantastic threads -great switch -feels great -looks wonderful to my eye -hits as hard as anything i got -top hat design is great
CONS
-plating is thick, but be careful with it
There isn't a review of this mod so thot i should put one up since it's one of my favorite mechs to use. i've got 4 mechs that use the AV Able design-- they all are great mods, but this is both the best looking and best working one. The others are brass, and this hits as hard as they do. i went on to nauseating detail abt this mod in its discussion threads so won't here. i like this mod, prolly will get another one.

PROS
--Flavour is really top notch --Doesn't hardly leak --Screw on top cap --Holds quite a lot of juice --Tight draw
CONS
--Tight draw --Machining of the copper center pole is so-so --Soft o-ring on the 510 screw means it can't be completely tightened, so center post will always turn.
It's good for carrying around, because it's not prone to leakage beyond some moisture around the airhole, and the cap is secure as it screws onto the base. Tightening the cap also locks down the AFC adjustment. Cons: i took a dremel to the copper center post and the 510 screw, to shorten the screw (too long) and to re-center and open up the inlet air hole in the center post (it was too small and badly off center). Easy to do since they're all copper bits. The 510 copper screw which fastens down the center post, is sealed with a soft o-ring and can't be completely torqued down as that will slice up the o-ring. Means the center post will always want to turn when you fasten on the positive tails of the coils, so you'll have to hold the post when you tighten the top center screw. It's always going to have a tight draw; the air holes are small. That's the design. Vertical coils work very well, as do mesh wicks. Plenty of room for building. Pros: All the fiddling and dremel work is worth it because it's a great flavour atty and it's neither fiddly to use nor leaky once it's built. i have a single mesh wrapped cable wick in mine, abt 2.5mm, coiled with 3 wraps of 28awg Kanthal. Will likely wrap a better coil later, but it's plenty good now. Have had it in use abt 6 months. No complaints. Posted abt it lots in the discussion threads for this atty.

PROS
--Great flavour vape if you wanna --No slouch with the clouds if you wanna --AFC mebbe fiddly, but it works as advertised and seals well. --Not leaky unless it's tipped over on open air slots.
CONS
minor annoyances that come with too much adjustability.
Haven't written any reviews here in a long time, but this atty seems to be mostly ignored, and that's unfortch. i've built this dual coil with all 6 slots wide open with the chamber size at max, and i've built it single coil with just a pin prick of 1 airhole open, and the chamber size at min, and it works equally well both ways. The individually adjustable slots are a bit fiddly, but they lock down tight when you're done adjusting so they won't move anymore, plus the air seal is good so it works as an ultra super-tight draw flavour atty when you're so inclined. At least that is so with my sample. It's the most adaptable dripper i have that works well on both ends of the vape spectrum. Single or dual, horizontal or vertical coils all work.

PROS
--Beautiful modernist design --Great AFC --Wonderful base --Negative posts milled from the same piece of steel as the rest of the base --Great radiator design for the drip tip cap
CONS
--Bottom lip of the base needs to be ground down a bit so the cap fits properly --AFC alignment is off unless the base if ground down --Included drip tip is bad looking on this dripper --No single coil mode in the AFC --O-ring on the drip tip cap on mine, doesn't grip
Makes me feel like my mod's turned into a piece of classy Bauhaus paraphernalia. And it works really well as a dripper. Deck is easy to work on, conductivity is very good, puts out big clouds, taste pretty good for the amount of air it lets thru. i listed a bunch of cons, but basically this is one of the good drippers. Grind down the lip on the base and put on a better looking drip tip, then this becomes a fantastic dripper.
