If you have an Aromamizer RDTA then this is a must. I find very little difference between this deck and the authentic deck, and I was a lot more comfortable 'opening up' (drilling out) the juice flow holes on this deck, than I was on the authentic. Speaking of which, enlarging the juice holes on the deck is worthwhile, enabling higher wattage to be used, and more aggressive coils to be fitted. As the authentic is approximately 3 to 4 times the price of this I will be back for more. This is a great deal.

First, I have absolutely no idea whether this device will actually reach 50 watts, or at what resistances it might do so. I've thrown everything from 0.3 ohm to approx 1.5 ohm at it, and it's not missed a beat - I'm a happy camper!! It's a solid little beast, and the finish appears to be good and hard wearing. This mod is finished tidily inside too, and and my Sony VTC's slot into the battery compartment nicely. I'm really quite impressed (and given the great price, I'll probably be back for a few more) \m/

After the debacle with the Njord (didn't buy it, just heard about it) I was a little wary of this RDA & Morton Oen's involvement in the design. However, the deck intrigued me & I love large RDAs. I'm really pleased to say that this thing's amazing. It produces wonderful flavour, vapes like a much much smaller atty, and holds a heap of wick & juice. It doesn't leak either. I found the deep set coil securing points a bit fiddly to use & the deep set grub screws are tricky too, but the good points outweigh the bad by a country mile. Maybe there's more to Morton Oen than I thought.

The more time passes, the more impressed I am with Vandy Vape. This RTA is impressive in just about every regard - so much airflow it's verging on ridiculous wide open, great construction detail, awesome flavour reproduction and a kick-arse single coil deck. I'm a big fan of the Kylin, but I can't help but think that the Govad RTA is what the Kylin could have been. Also, unlike the Kylin, the Govad seems quite happy to retain all of the juice you fill it with.

I've just received the Osmium V2, and my initial impressions are as follows. It looks good. Damn good. The black body is beautifully accompanied by the brass top & bottom caps. The threads feel good, not butter smooth, but not bad either. I had a slight problem fitting the silver screw contact but I suspect that it was my fault, not a problem with the threads. The Osmium conducts well, certainly no worse than an upgraded Stainless Panzer (my of immedate point of comparrison). I believe that this Osmium has a magnetic switch. I'm yet to take it apart to check, but it certainly feels like it. Finally, this mod is small - really small. I have large hands and it barely exits either side of my clenched mitt. It's, maybe, 2/3rds of the size of an IPV4? Really practical, and a perfect size for the pocket, but as the fire switch can not be locked I'm seriously hesitant to do so. Given the great price for the Osmium V2 you could do a lot worse!! I am impressed
