PROS
Build quality Spring loaded 510 Good battery life Fire button placement Small
CONS
Shallow 510 connection, tanks have gap Torx screws on bottom protrude a fraction of millimeter Hilariously Chinglish manual
This is a fantastic little stealth mod with very good battery life. I got nearly 9 hours of service with moderate vaping using a 1.5 ohm coil. The fire button placement is ergonomically correct for its size and very comfortable to hold and fire. The switch has good tactile movement, feels sturdy and produces minimal "click" when pressed and no button rattle whatsoever. Simplicity is the Power 60's strong point, 5 clicks on/off, 3 clicks to change between 40 and 60 watts. Although their choice of LED colors indicating wattage seems backwards, a maximum of 60 watts is green and 40 watts is red. These colors are visible on the ring around the fire button, and there's three white LED's just above it indicating battery capacity, very smart and well thought out. There's no indication that this mod is regulated or direct wattage, but what I can tell it's regulated, it produced just as much vapor and throat hit at 100% charge as it did at 25%. Charging with a 1 amp source takes about 2 hours from being almost completely depleted. Construction is great,it feels solid and well machined. The paint is a semi-rough matte which prevents slipping in your hand but feels silky smooth. This little beauty gives the Eleaf Power Nano a run for its money at nearly half price with just slight more girth in all directions. Now for the niggles. While I didn't expect the 510 connection to be spring loaded, it is, and that's a good thing, but the connection is shallow and none of my tanks sit flush. There's approximately 1 mm gap remaining. This could be overcome by using heat insulators such as these SKU:8081600. I will know soon enough since they are in the mail and on their way to me. In addition, the Torx screws holding the bottom plate don't sit flush and protrude a fraction of a millimeter. This causes a slight bit of wobble when placed on a level surface, but more importantly could scratch some surfaces if not careful. If Kangvape took care of these two minor issues it would have one extremely hot seller. But don't let these make you pass it by, I will definitely be considering another one of these for my collection.

PROS
Tiny Great flavor Easy to build Good capacity for me
CONS
POM tank likely and eventually will crack Crappy deck screws, not stainless
This is a nice MTL genesis type RTA. I'm used to building this style and don't encounter the usual leaking and frustration that others have. As with any other genesis I also don't leave these laying on their side no matter how well I build them. The large fill hole isn't an issue, plug it up with some cotton or use one of SKU:1886602 to reduce the size, they can also be used in the wick holes in case you use smaller diameter silica. These are so easy to build I recommend them to anyone starting out at rebuilding. What it comes down to is this is a rebuildable CE4 with great flavor along the lines of the Kayfun mini. The Nectar was somewhat dirty out of the container and didn't notice until I cleaned it. I bought a black one along with this and not impressed with the paint, it's easily chipped. I'll resolve that issue in the untrasonic cleaner ;) The deck screws aren't stainless so if you don't intend to replace them be sure to keep them clean and dry. The POM tank is sturdy but I'm sure it will crack over time and especially for those who use citrus and cinnamon flavors. FT also sells replacement glass (which I've bought) and is a good investment. The AFC control is great, just twist the top cap/dome until you find the draw you like. I wasn't too thrilled with the drip tip, it's adequate but is more tailored for something sub-ohm but easily replaced. These are perfect for stealth setups and the "blueish" POM tank looks fantastic on my light blue Vamo 25W box. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this to anyone looking for ease of use, MTL and flavor. Wonderful price too even with minor flaws.

PROS
Works as advertised Cheap Nearly endless coil builds
CONS
Nada
I don't sub-ohm. I bought this for the Melo III Mini which came with the eLeaf Pico kit so I could build higher resistance coils and make use of the tank. If you've ever rebuilt Kanger Protank heads the concept and process is the same. I use NR-R-NR wires bought here to keep the bottom grommet from getting scorched or burnt. So far it has worked flawlessly, never flooded or leaked using cotton as wick. After closing the AFC down completely and changing to a smaller bore drip tip the Melo III Mini can be a decent and flavorful mouth to lung atty...with the help of the ECR coil head of course.

PROS
Superior build quality Perfect for MTL Great price Easy to build Near perfect machining
CONS
Absolutely none
If you MTL and enjoy flavor the Nectar is top notch. I already own 3 of the standard size and decided to give this one a try, not disappointing at all! The deck configuration is a bit different where the air is drawn horizontally into the chimney rather than through the bottom. I've noticed this intensifies flavor slightly. The small juice capacity is excellent to keep it super tiny as well as having reserve rather than just a straight dripper. Steam Tribe makes this particular clone, quality of machining and fit is exemplary. I also bought one of SKU:6557100 and they're identical yet this one is cheaper. The bell cap on this one is the same as SKU:6557100 which was a welcome surprise because I prefer it without the extra "heat fin". Except the tank ring everything is stainless including the hex screws which have smooth threading. I will certainly be buying another one of these along with some replacment tank sections SKU:3976401

PROS
Tiny Decent power for most vapers Charges very fast
CONS
LED readout is really bright (see review)
I quit my smoking habit 4+ years ago with an eGo-C, I'm more than happy with eGo style batteries and have no desire to sub-ohm or shock anyone with mods/tanks that look like fuel injectors from a turbo charger or look like I have a dildo in my mouth. If you're like me, this is the battery for you...a means to not smoke. The iStick Mini is about as tall as a 650 mAh eGo and twice the depth. Battery life is good to excellent, I can get about 8-10 hours of moderate vaping using 2.2 ohm single coil heads running at 3.8 volts. Charging is insanely fast if you use a 5 volt 2 amp source. Mine only take 30 minutes to charge when they're depleated to 20%. The LED screen is BRIGHT, if you like to vape and drive at night you're going to want to put your finger over it to not be distracted but it is easy to read in bright sunlight. If you're an eGo user and want a battery with plenty of "ooommf" but still like to keep your habit low key, you will be very happy with the iStick Mini. Don't forget to buy a 510 to eGo thread adaptor, they're dirt cheap on FT.
