Flavor, flavor, and more flavor Very easy to build Sub ohm performance very good Smooth threads Nice and easy AFC Capacity
CONS
Machine oil No steel tank section, but that can be bought separately and still come in under the price of clones that do come with it.
This is a great RTA that covers a wide range of uses. The MTL performance isn't as bad as some would lead one to believe. When set to minimum airflow, a pleasant but somewhat loose mouth-to-lung hit is the result. It isn't as tight as the older Kayfuns, and certainly won't get as tight as the Mini V3, but it is satisfactory nonetheless. On it's maximum airflow setting, it borders on the edge of direct lung and a restricted lung hit. While it may not satisfy a Kayfun purist at it's minimum setting, the ease of building and overall quality are very good. While not pictured or listed, this does come with spare screws and o-rings.

A snap to refill. Close the choke, loosen the drip tip, rotate the cap open, fill, rotate the cap closed, tighten drip tip, open choke to desired airflow, enjoy.
CONS
Tedious to fill from dead-empty/fresh wick. The trick is to keep the choke closed, take a bunch of primer pulls with the tank inverted after filling, then open choke to desired airflow. There may be a little leakage and gurgling the first few pulls, but it goes away quick.
This is quickly becoming my favorite tank. The biggest advantage for me is the ease of refilling. Nothing needs to be removed to refill this bad boy. The flavor is wonderful, better than my Kayfun 3.1 and Kayfun Lite, but less of a throat hit. Wicking this guy like an authentic ErlK will be a messy experience. According to some videos I've watched, the authentic ErlK's use a light amount of cotton in the juice channels. With this clone, you'll get some nasty leaks going about building it in such a manner. This one likes a moderate to heavy amount of cotton in the juice channels. I used a 1.8 ohm 2mm coil with a decent sized piece of cotton, enough cotton to where it takes a light to moderate amount of effort to pull the wick through the coil. Snip the cotton right at the bottom of the juice channel. For $9, this was a steal, and I would have no qualms paying the current $12 price either. Good stuff!

Big juice channels Great airflow Easy to build
CONS
Still has the typical Kayfun whistle
I purchased this base to have more airflow on my Kayfun 3.1 ES. This base produces excellent flavor and a good amount more vapor than the original. Build this the same way as any other Kayfun, but use a little thicker cotton. The cotton should have a moderate to high amount of resistance when pulling it through your coil. If you go too thin on the cotton, it floods easy, especially with higher PG juices. Not totally a mouth to lung hitter as some other reviews state, but it is a much better draw than the other Kayfuns. I found my sweet spot at 1 ohm with 28AWG kanthal, works like a champ with my SMPL mod.
