PROS
--Pretty small for a 3 post, dual coil RDA --Adjustable side air feed --Good machining --Stainless steel --Good deck design
CONS
--Stripped threads in center post, screw falls out --Top cap fits very loosely on deck, o-rings too thin
The atty i received has a better made AFC than the one in the product photos here. The product photos show just one o-ring seal above the air hole whereas mine has o-rings on both sides of the hole, so that air will only enter thru the flow control. The colour of the stainless steel is also better than what the photos show. Kludged around the stripped center post by putting a thin, doubled over strip of mesh down into the threads before putting in the screw. Kludged around the too-thin o-rings for the top cap by putting the usual dental floss under the top ring. Post now holds coil wire well enough to build it and top cap is tight enough. Works pretty well, no complaints abt that. AFC only has one hole, mightn't be enough for dual coils. Besides the stripped center post in mine, which seems to be a result of overzealous assembly, everything's good. If you like a tight draw, besides dialing down the AFC might also want to change the drip tip for one with a smaller hole. The one it comes with works pretty well generally. Atty has kindo utilitarian look. Very inexpensive for what you get.

PROS
--Everything works really well for use on atty coils and mesh wicks --Good size for those small jobs
CONS
--Lighter mode not so useful, have to fire up in torch mode then switch
No complaints. Hold in hand, turn gas on, jam the bottom spark switch on the table to light up, away you go. The quality of construction is very good for this price. It doesn't feel as tho i need to have an extra one in case of failure, not the way you need to keep 5 dollar store piezo lighters around.

PROS
--Inexpensive --Mesh and wire are good --Tiny phillips screwdrivers
CONS
--Mesh all different sizes, some kinda small, some with ragged edges
Got my 10-pack some time ago and it had everything. They're nice to have around even if the mesh pieces aren't of a consistent size. So far these Spares Kits are the only source of ss mesh from FT.

PROS
--Top and shell will take lots of punishment --Flavourful when well wicked and coiled. --Deck while small is open and easy to build on --Top cap is extra secure. One can definitely put it in the pocket and then sit on it without anything happening to it (how would i know, you ask?)
CONS
--Tiny juice reservoir, more a dripper than a tank atty --No so sure the juice reservoir even holds 1ml
After a few unsatisfactory builds i turned mine into a genny dripper by putting a ss mesh wick and coil into it. Hell yes, now it works. Wonderful flavours. i'll get another one sometime. The juice reservoir is too small to work well as a tank, but it's quite fine to hold a decent reserve for a mesh wick and coil, and now i've got a genny dripper that lasts quite a while between dripping. i stuck a little mesh strip into the remaining open hole on the deck to help wick juice into the reservoir when dripping. All the details of this build is in the discussions for this atty. Brand new out of the box, the reservoir had ragged edges on the top thread that chewed into the o-ring seal of the build deck. Had to file that down. Left it alone other than that. It's a very solid atty. The o-rings hold the top can on very securely. The small diameter top cap with its built-in tip is very, very solid. Once you put it together it'll stay together no matter what. Add a mesh wick and coil to that, which have very good longevity and ease of maintenance, and it's an atty that'll take a whole lot of beating and remain functional. Great for working outdoors.

PROS
-Nicely made, has the feel of sufficiently good quality. -510 and eGo connectors are good. -Nice coated finish
CONS
-firmware not so well written -battery capacity could be better -A bit long
If the battery lasted longer between charges i'd be happy to put up with the firmware in this VV/VW unit. As it is i keep wanting to disassemble the thing and solder a better li-ion cell into it. The connector has good threading that's of sufficient hardness. i like the miniUSB charging port. The finish feels good. As for the firmware, in the discussion area here for this battery i've gone into what shortcomings i've found, so won't repeat it here. i'll add to that list: There are places where an auto-repeat for the button presses would be nice. There aren't any anywhere in the menu system. The delay interval is too long for menu switching between VV and VW. The interval for button locking is also a bit lengthy. The battery is a bit weak for me, plus it doesn't output 15W as far as i can tell. i get mebbe 11W-12W tops. It charges reasonably quick tho, and the coil resistance readout is pretty bang on. Overall i like this item. Will like it a lot more once i get a better li-ion cell inside of it.
