small re-dripper works OK
CONS
some parts are weaker then others hard to build and wick the 510 pin does not protrude from the base, doesn't work with some devices.
Not a bad idea, but it could have been done better without much, if any, cost difference. Building a coil is a bit of a challenge. The coil cup is removable from the base for easier access and wicking, but since it can't be in the base while building, it makes it fiddly without a way to support it during building. It would have been better to make the cup sit in the base and have a shallower receiving section or a removable ring so that it could be added after the wicking was in place. I use an extra EVOD base screwed into a mod for stability while building. The base is made of very thin material, much thinner than the top parts. It would be very easy to bend if dropped. The 510 pin doesn't protrude from the base, it is recessed about 0.5mm. That makes it not work on some devices. It would have been better for it to protrude about 0.5-1mm. The cup fits into the base with Kanger coil equivalent threading, but a Kanger coil won't work because the 510 pin isn't long enough. It seems it could have been done in a way that would have made it possible to use Kanger heads as an option. It is only about 0.5mm too short. Given that even the stock cup is a bit too short, overall the threading should be moved down about 1mm. The cup uses a rubber grommet for wire capture very similar to a Kanger head. A Kanger grommet and pin can be used. The rubber grommet style limits the gauge of the wire that can be used and squeezed into the tube. 28g wire is about the biggest you can go. I tried twisted 30g and that is a bit too thick and can cause the leads to squeeze too tight and short through the grommet. Next I will try to separate the twists at the end and feed four separate leads down the tube the way Kanger dual coil heads are done. It would have been even better if it had a proper rebuilding deck with posts and screws. That would allow for thicker gauge, dual coils etc. Since the build deck is removable it would be easy to just replace the build deck with a different design and keep the rest of the tank. That would also be great to have many pre-built decks that could be swapped in and out.

works as expected chunky material
CONS
slippery when wet taller than necessary no spare o-rings fill holes are tiny
It works as expected. The holes could have been a touch bigger - you can't really use a glass dropper and thick juice sometimes is difficult to get in without a mess. Also it is hard to see when the holes are actually open. It seems taller than necessary, which defeats some of the advantages of using it with a Nano kit. It would have been better had they put some knurling or some other kind of pattern on the top ring, as it is hard to turn without potentially loosening the whole top cap, especially when wet. It also would have been nice if they supplied spare o-rings, since they are not anything common, and they could easily fall out and get lost when disassembling for cleaning.

Nice looking thick glass wide bore double o-ring
CONS
diameter does not fit into any of my attys without modification longer than most tips and may be a problem for some attys
It's nice looking, has a wide 5.9mm bore, but it would not fit into any of my 10+ attys. It seems the o-ring is too fat - the forums say a 1mm ring might work better, but I don't have any of those and will need to find some. Buying a bag of those just for this tip will cost more than this tip cost. It is also a bit longer than most tips at about 6mm, which could be a problem for some patty's and possibly touch certain posts.

good enough build materials
CONS
could use some texturing to make it easier to grip and tighten.
Works as expected. Most devices do not sit flush and it requires that I unscrew this ring a bit to tighten up against the topper, leaving a small gap between the ring and battery, but that's OK, because it makes the ring act as an adjustable locking nut. Maybe it would have been good to have a ring with some slight texture to make it easier to grip. I often use these kinds of rings with a Kayfun Mini on a twist style battery.

nice and small
CONS
there is no low resistance or current protection no low voltage indication the description size is not accurate, not informative
It works about as I expected, but I would have expected it to have low resistance or over-current protection. If you put on an atty that is less than 1.5Ω it doesn't stop it from firing, and it can get very hot after a few second and burns my hand. If you put on a 1Ω coil or lower, it gets hot almost instantly. I'm sure if I continued to fire it, it would burn out and possibly cause the battery to vent. I knocked down the rating by one star because this problem is potentially dangerous. Since this is not a VV battery, I have been trying to find the lowest possible resistance it will handle to get the most out of it. My only indication of what was too low was feeling it overheat. There doesn't appear to be any low voltage warning, it just stops working. It would be better to have it flash after firing when the voltage is low, about 20% charge, like with other eGo batteries. The description size says it is 56mm, but that is from the bottom to the top of the eGo threads, which isn't a very useful dimension. It would be better to describe the size to the the bottom of the threading so that one could determine the size minus an eGo topper so that you could determine the overall size with a topper. The dimension to the bottom of the threading is 51.3mm. The entire device is 61.2mm including the eGo and 510 connector. I was looking for an eGo battery with the shortest height possible to fit in a shirt pocket, and this is just about right. It would be nice to have something similar in height but it could be a bit fatter for more battery life. I think I will try the 450 mAh version next to get a bit more life at the expense of about 5mm in height. Of course the ultimate would be to have one in about this size with variable voltage!
