PROS
Inexpensive Battery mAh claimed seems accurate
CONS
Rattle "Cloudy" display Very fast watts scroll Bottom screws not fully flush
This SKU is currently about $10 cheaper than 2249104, and it shows. While the "basics" are all present, an overall sense of lower quality is evident. There is noticeable rattle if the mod is shaken or rotated. The screen is less visually appealing, it looks slightly "cloudy", lacking a polarized tinted screen overlay. The small screws on the bottom protrude slightly, such that it would not sit fully flat on its base, but in practice this is hardly noticeable. The screen also turns off considerably more quickly; presumably this may save battery life and would be a matter of personal preference. The buttons, while serviceable, scroll through the watts setting very fast--it is more difficult to "stop" on a given watts (say, 30.0) on the first try. It is hard to argue with the price, though, and particularly for a travel or "beater" mod, it represents a good value.

PROS
Tank and still relatively small overall size Much easier to adjust airflow than Origen V2 Lots of build options Very good vapor production
CONS
Fill screw/post tilted slightly, could be easier to use
Took a chance getting this despite the generally-poor reviews, and am glad I did. Seems almost perfect. Lots of build options including mesh with the unique deck accessory design. On the other hand, this may not be the best choice for one's first RTA, as the design can be a bit daunting to understand. Has been working perfectly for me, my regulated mods showing no voltage loss or jumping ohms over many hours of use, apparently those issues have been resolved. The tank along with the still-small size will make it my new "on the go" choice, as well as a regular in my at-home rotation.

PROS
Good aesthetic appearance Feels nice in hand Simple sturdy design Battery door action very smooth
CONS
Battery door can be pressed down in one corner Very firm button press required Battery fit very tight with button batteries
I wanted a mechanical box mod with a corresponding aesthetic "old" look to it, and this is it. Looks nice, feels nice, even smells nice with a woody/leathery finish. A few very small dings and the door fit isn't absolutely perfect, but what can one expect--it's wood, not molded plastic or metal. The button requires firm/deep pressing compared to an electronic switch, but after a half-hour I'm already mostly used to it. Very pleased.

PROS
Very comfortable form factor, long battery life. Will never buy a "cylinder" battery (e.g. Ego) again.
CONS
Minor scratchability of clear plate located over display and around buttons. Glass or less-scratchable plastic would be ideal. Outside of that, build quality is stellar.
Very nice, across the board. Details in my pros and cons.
