PROS
- finish - price - large windows - better flavor than joyetech's
CONS
- apparantly lower quality - no CE and other safety signs/controls - ridiculous drip tip
You can see it's cheaper than the genuine. The charging light is a little missaligned. Fire LED is less subtle. Drip tip differs from the pictured one. It's totally ridiculously huge. Missing CE will be a problem with customs if they check. Mine obviously didn't. Besides that those safety controls aren't made without reason. However, the flavor is better on this one. I don't know yet if it is the tank or the coil leading to it. Talking about the tank, it's windows are great. The cut outs look a little messy if you take a close look but you can see the liquid very well. But here's the best thing. Unlike the joyetech the finish on this one matches the Taifun GS II what makes it a really nice combo.

Like most SMPLs this REM simply works great. Conductitvity is always good. Switch is harder to press than other SMPLs, unforunately the nemesis magnets you can buy here don't fit. Worst is the black coating. If you want to carry your mod in your pocket together with keys or something better choose something else.

PROS
- new kind of switch - beautiful - two tubes
CONS
- rough cleaning needed - dead spots where switch doesn't fire
Well, finally I got it a few days ago and it is definetly such a beauty! But first things first, it didn't arrive in the pictured box but in those pretty vanilla cheap black paper box. Nevermind, I tried it out first without cleaning. Bad idea. The switch got usable only after a really tough scrubbing with - don't know the word - those steel wool like sponges you clean pans with. Before I had many 'dead spots' or press pretty hard to get it to fire. However, cleaning solved that...almost. There are still some angles you can press without closing the circuit but meanwhile it only happens rarely when using my left hand. Besides that it still needs more pressure compared to Nemesis or SMPL switches. Feels like driving a car without servo-steering. Everytime I switch back to my SMPL it's switch feels awesomly easy ;-) Great is the asthetics don't change when using button topped or plain batteries. Both fit well. Also surprisingly good is how perfectly the switch aligns back without leaving a 'step' to the tube. Had concerns about that before I got it. On the smaller tube I have a little failed machining at the tube's end (atty side) but for me it's not woth complaining about. I'm not familiar with plating and polishing and such so I won't rate that. Neither will I say how 'hard it hits'. It's like my SMPLv1, my SMPLv2, my Nemesis with alutube and hybrid, whatever my battery discharges at the moment I wake up anyway. I don't care if it has a voltage drop of 0.1 or 0.2 or whatever. Trivia: That drip tip is an amazing match: SKU1527503 Kepler Hybrid adapter fits perfectly: SKU1931400 All in all I have divided opinions about it. It's a beatiful small mod - size between SMPLv1 and SMPLv2 - but I have to admit I had higher expectations of the switch. Rounder edges would be more comfortable btw. Would like to know if you can find an adjustment-screw with a little bigger head to shorten the 'switching-way' even more (it's about 1.5mm)

PROS
really nice
CONS
didnt fit first airhole to small
I had to "sand" the connector a little, used just a plier and scratched over it some times. Otherwise it didnt fit on my attys. Now it sits well. Personally I dont like how the shape feels in my mouth, too thin. Airhole is too small in the base, I guess you could drill it wider. But anyway its really good looking!

The tips are good aligned and stable, heat resistant and non-conductive of course. So, just perfect for building coils.
