PROS
Easy to build. Easy to dismantle/assemble. Simple/nice top cap. Big filling ports, no struggle filling. Tastes and vapes great. Build quality is overall really good. Super cheap.
CONS
Really noisy, it's a wind tunnel open or closed off. Doesn't come with many spare parts. The post screws are hex as are the spare ones (not flathead screw like the authentic). Drip tip included did not have any orings and the small one shown in the product image was not included the tip was very loose without them. Bubble glass is a bit wonkey / warped, but functional (so pray yours doesn't cause a leak). There's some grinding between the glass and the top of the tank.
Overall given the price of this "styled" tank, it's really good value for money, only let down by some weird choices (see pros/cons). My biggest gripe was that it didn't come with any small orings(small one shown in the product image) for the drip tip and none were installed, which meant the tip would come out at the slightest touch, fortunately i have a bunch of various spare orings and was able to add two, which instantly made the tip secure (i did end up swapping to another longer tip, but fitting orings did fix the included one). The post screws, hex, just why? (again i think i have spares that fit, lucky me). For the cost though, still an amazing vape, doesn't really shine with simple wire as much, but works fantasticly with flat clapton wire (or your choice of exotic coil). The positives easily outweight the negatives for me, great RTA.

PROS
Did not come smelling like machine oil. Less than or around half the price of the authentic. Includes spare orings and post screws(only flat head, screwdriver also in the bag). Easy to build. Supports single and dual coil. The AFC ring isn't overly loose, it's very tight but eases up with a bit of use. Includes larger bubble glass. Top cap and bottom are nurled nicely like the authentic. Vapes as well as the original, at least it seems like it does(don't have one for direct comparison). Overall build quality is top notch(seals well, threads feel good), were it not for a few minor differences(orings in a couple of places the original has seals built in) and the absence of logos, you'd be hard pressed to tell it's a clone.
CONS
The moving parts at the bottom did grind heavily, crunch, crunch(fixed that with a few drops of turbine oil). The positive and negative posts are the same colour/material(the original uses gold for positive and steel for negative). No squonk pin(doesn't bother me, it might you). The bottom oring isn't a stepped/ridged design and can protrude around areas of the glass around the bottom of the RTA(doesn't leak though) when assembled as it's a very loose fit. Extremely airey(i run with it nearly completely shut off) and eats juice for breakfast. Does not have an AFC stopper like the original(i don't mind personally).
I've been just recevied this tank today and i did have to perform a minor bit of diy(use a few drops of turbine oil) to stop the bottom of the tank grinding heavily when it's being screwed together. Build quality is excellent and the tank looks pretty damn close to the authentic, just less the dead rabbit branding. Dismantled the tank first, broke it all down to as many parts as possible, oiled up the bottom section(it was a pain getting rid of the oil afterward but was worth it to stop the crunching) and soaked everything for a few hours. Looks great, vapes great and whilst it suffers the same downsides as the original/authentic, coil placement is pretty important, don't wick too heavy and having to unscrew the deck from your ohm reader or mod to assemble it, it's still a lovely tank, just wish it didn't burn through my juice soo fast(but then i knew it would, not really the tank at fault here). My first purchase of a clone/styled tank, great value for money. YMMV, i have no idea what the QC is like on these tanks in general, but be sure to look out for grinding on the bottom section(which you can fix with a bit of oil). If i could change one thing about this clone it would be the orings used for the bottom section of the tank, they sit too loose and could benefit from being the ridged kind(i'm going to switch mine to a spare from my Siren 2(which are stepped/ridged), it fits perfectly and very snug(i tested but swapped back to the included one to test).

PROS
All the wicking performance of CB Costs less than half the price of CB No funny starting taste (like you might find with CB)
CONS
None that i can think of
Have a bag of CB v2 and some of this stuff, performance wise for my uses (i'm not blasting away on dual coil drippers or anything like that) it is basically the same. With the CB v2 there's always some initial taste to the cotton until it beds in, you get a minor amount of this with muji to, and in both cases it usually goes within a little bit of vaping, but i get none of this using the XFKM cotton (not that i can detect anyway). The cost makes this a fantastic alternative to CB, i wasn't expecting it to be quite to the same standard as CB, but i'm converted, i don't know why i'd ever buy CB again now.

Thought i'd actually make good use of these, and i have used one a few times, but when you have half a dozen tanks that need different lengths and you're not writing it down, it's usually quicker and more efficient to just do the trim by eye. Can't knock the product though, you get what you see and it does the job it's intended for. Handy tool to have nonetheless and good value.
