- Overall good build quality - Easy to wick - 23mm base (fits most mods) - O-rings are okay - Versatile airflow
CONS
- Airflow adjustment method - Juice trickles into airflow, not a smooth vape - Machine oil on device on arrival - Useless/broken tool included
I don't believe that this isn't the worst tank out there for MTL vaping. The airflow is very versatile and allows you to remove the airflow screw from under the 510 pin, giving you a restricted lung hit, to tightening it down to a super tight MTL feeling of vape. My first gripe with this tank was that it needs a REALLY good clean when you first get it. If you just want to put a build into this tank and ASAP and vape on it, I'd HIGHLY recommend against that as the only flavor profile any of your juices will produce is machine oil. I had to disassemble this tank twice and run it through my ultrasonic cleaner twice. When cleaning, you REALLY need to make sure you fully take out the airflow screw and clean that too. Overall, the build quality of this is actually good. The threads on the tank are okay with the exception of the topfill. Those threads were a bit crunchy at first, but seems to have broke in after the past 5 weeks of use and now they're smooth enough to not be noticable. The 510 and airflow adjustment screws are very well made which haven't caused me a problem when taking both of them out. Lastly the o-rings aren't bad for something not authentic. You could argue that the o-rings for the juice flow control are a little loose but I personally liked this since they aren't tight enough to unscrew my atomizer from my mod. The build desk is an old school KF deck. If you're buying this, you expect to spend a little bit of time capturing your leads under the screws. What did impress me through is that wicking this was a breeze. I've experimented with different amounts of wicks in this and it seems that this tank can handle more wick very well. Just make sure you open up your juice flow with 1.5 rotations so that the wicks are able to soak up enough juice. Getting your desired airflow on this device isn't as tedious as some may think it is. I build and wicked the tank, screwed the tank down and adjusted the airflow bit-by-bit. After each tiny turn of the airflow screw, I sucked on the atty to see how tight the airflow was. Once I was happy with the airflow, I put the 510 plate back into the device and screwed the 510 pin back in. My second gripe comes when using the tank for a while. No matter how you wick this or how much you open up the juice flow control, juice WILL find it's way into the airflow port in the deck (floods). You will get a slightly gurgly vape no matter what you do with this. Although the tank doesn't leak, it can make your vaping experience kind of suck. I found that closing off the JFC every couple of days and blowing the juice out of the airflow was the best was to clear out the airflow channels. Lastly, I the included tool with this kit is absolutely useless. After using it to build the deck just once, the tool broke. If this is your first device, I recommend having a functioning screwdriver around to rebuild this. After all of the negatives of this device, it's not bad. It's not great either. The airflow can be adjusted to a good MTL tightness, HOWEVER, the inevitable gurgling you will experience on this ruins the experience that this atty offers. I prefer this over the kayfun prime that you can find on this site just because it can offer a much tighter airflow experience. With other good MTL devices on the market at the moment (the berserker mini, siren 2 and even the MTL drippers which have come out), I'd recommend looking at getting one of those and spending a little more money on them than getting this device. If you're on a tight budget, this isn't a bad choice, but there are better MTL devices out there these days.

PROS
- Clean appearance - Lots of extras - Metal and ultem tank section (spare tanks) - Simple to build - True MTL experience (can go tighter than a cigarette) - 22mm meaning it'll fit most mods
CONS
- Leaks after refilling - Slightly difficult to wick - 2ml juice capacity - Tight o-rings on top cap
Although this tank isn't my only MTL out there, it definitely provides the tightest airflow of any other tank I've tried. This is THE reason to go for a berserker mini. The berserker only allows you to dial in a single airflow hole, with the largest being a slightly loose draw, going down to an extremely restricted draw. The tight draw remindes me of a similar draw to when I rolled my own and used thin filters. The larger hole is reminiscent of using the extra large filters. This kit comes with a heap of extras, that being two drip tips and three different tank sections. The extras get a warm welcome from me since I know how irritating it can be to wait for a new glass section to arrive once you need to replace it. The metal glass section remindes me of the kayfun prime section, however the ultem section looks amazing paired toghether with the ultem drip tip. The form factor of the berserker is great too as it's 22mm size allows me to put this onto some of my older mods. This will fit almost any modern mod out on the market with no issues at all. The tank also isn't tall so it doesn't look out of place on a 22mm regulated stick mod. I mentioned the kayfun prime earlier in this review, and I have to say that the build deck on this one is 100% a clone of the kayfun prime. Do I see this as a bad thing? No because that build deck is simple to work with. It's a simple case of dropping your coils under the screws, tigthening and snipping off the leads. My issues however came with wicking. After many dry hits on this atty, I decided that I'd try to wick this like the Vandy Vape Kylin (cutting the wicks so they're long enough to fill in about 50% - 70% of the juice well). To my surprise, this has worked flawlessly for me and I haven't had any more dry hits since then, or any random leaking. The refill cap however is atrocious. After filling up my tank, I partially screw down my topcap (which has unnecessarily tight o-rings on it), flip the tank upside down and continue tightening the topcap. This has 100% of the time flooded my deck and un-flooding it each time is a hassle. Overall, this isn't a bad tank but I wouldn't recommend this for a beginner. I believe that this is geared for a builder who has a decent amount of experience with RTA's and understands how to wick them efficiently. The desk being flooded on every re-fill definitely is a big let down and I more often find myself reaching from my Digiflavor Siren 2 more often since refilling that tank doesn't have this issue at all (and the smallest hole on that is about the same size as the second smallest hole on the berserker).

PROS
- Sturdy build quality - Easy to build - Thick top cap, doesn't get hot easily - Airflow is smooth
CONS
- No drip tips fit into it - No included BF pin - Designed for smaller builds - Dual coil builds only
I honestly don't have any issues at all with this dripper. Upon getting this, I threw in a couple of simple spaced stainless steel round wire coils into it, and the vape off of such simple coils is really flavourful! I wish the posts were a little wider apart so I could put some wider coils into it. The deck does limit you with the builds that you can put into it, for instance, I struggle to fit in a 26 gauge core fused claptons, but 28 gauge core fused claptons fits into this without much hassle. Ordinary roundwire builds are by far the easiest in terms of installation (and work well in this atty from experience). The build deck is a 1:1 of the armor 1.0 deck, to the point that my YFTK armor 1.0 topcap fit onto the deck without any issues at all. The armor's BF pin also fitted into the bottom of the Cannon deck too. I am annoyed that this kit didn't include a bf pin itself since it works wonderfully as a squonking atty. Using this however in dripper mode, I haven't had any issues at all with it. I find it hard to over drip as the airflow slots are pretty high on deck. The airflows themselves don't produce any annoying whistling sound that some attys do, and it's a relatively quiet atomizer. Compared to the armor 1.0, I am able to build my coils all the way out to the side of the deck as the topcap doesn't take up any deck room at all (armor users will understand what I mean). The kit doesn't include any single coil blocker, meaning that you have to build your atty with dual coils. The top cap itself is around 2mm thick, which means that the topcap gets warm at best while chain vaping on it. The biggest issue I have with the cap is that it doesn't accommodate any drip tips that I have. I have tried normal 510 tips into the top as well as the slightly smaller hadaly tips, and nothing really fits. Vaping off of it really reminds me of vaping off of a wasp nano, so if you're a nano fan, you shouldn't have any issues using this atty. Overall, I'm pleased with this atty, I just wish that the package came with a bf pin of it's own. With the topcap on this atty, it is a 24mm device.

- Easy-to-use conversion kit - Good threading on chimney extension
I really don't have much to say about this. The glass came well packaged and undamaged. Installing chimney section took only a few seconds to screw onto the atomizer, and screwing down the glass was a very easy process. For the couple of dollars I spent on this, it was a worthwhile purchase for doubling the capacity of my SXK prime.

- Multiple topcaps. - 810/goon fitting drip tips. - Interesting, angled airflow. - Fits 4mm inner-diameter coils, but not wide legged coils (medium builds). - Hybrid safe, protruding 510 pin.
CONS
- Need to take out deck screws when building. - Logo on included 810 looks goofy.
The gorge has a very classic atomiser look to it. I personally don't mind this at all as it looks fine on all the mods that I've put it on. The airflow is definitely different, it's on a 45 degree angle which seems to hit the side of your coils very nicely. I found that installing coils with more wraps is necessary to make good use of this airflow design. Combining more wraps with the ability of airflow the gorge can give you, it'll reward you with some great flavours. The multiple caps has given me a satisfying experience since it allowed me to match the kit up with my pei mods, and the black cap looks good with my black mods. The PEI cap doesn't get hot at all and allows me to chain vape very easily. This is a decent atomiser for single coil builds, if the build deck didn't require me to take out the screws to install my coils easily, I would enjoy rebuilding on this a little more often. The quality of vaping I've got off of this however has been a pleasant experience that gives me great clouds and flavour!
