Well made wire. Easy to coil. A 6 wrap spaced coil on a 2.5mm rod comes to about 0.62 ohms so a dual coil is just right for finicky TC mods.

PROS
Plain aesthetics 100 watts available power when using builds between about 0.15 to approx 0.6 Clean, well built Magnets perfectly satisfactory for battery compartment cover 4 x spare copper (copper plated brass?) 510 pins Simple functionality with clear screen Excellent battery life Airtight 510 connector - atomizers with leaky 510 connectors shouldn't ooze juice in to the electronics Useful, to the point, manual included Price
CONS
Large with non ergonomic edges No USB charging socket may be inconvenient for some folks Button top batteries won't fit
My 6 month old Sigelei zmax is still going strong after heavy use with no issues (other than a lack of power which makes it unsuitable for anything much more than clearomisers/kayfuns) so I was inclined to go with Sigelei for this new breed of affordable high regulated power. It came without the 510 pin in situ which is probably a good idea to reinforce it's reverse threaded functionality - it threads smoothly but I have graphite lubed the socket and am being very gentle with it just in case. I can find no flaws in the Sig's construction - screen cut out is perfect, no button (or battery) rattle, satisfying clickiness to the fire switch. Perhaps it was the earlier version that had a battery plate wobble using Sony VTC batteries but I have tried 4 different Sony Vtc4s and the plate fits perfectly, no wobble. Really simple functionality - no puff counters or temperature gauges or any other miscellaneous features that I strongly doubt I would ever use. All of my stock atomisers will fit flush with minimal copper pin adjustments. Most importantly, it works extremely well. The first atomizer I tried was an onslaught with a 0.39 triple coil build which I usually pair with a copper Unicorn mod (probably my hardest hitting mech), which should give me around 40-45 watts with a fresh battery. Setting the Sig 100 to 40 watts gave a superior more satisfyingly dense, thick & warm vape than I ever had with the mech. I am really impressed. Above 80 watts is too hot for me with my current selection of atomizers - it is nice to have more power than I realistically require. Sigelei state in the 'tips' section of the manual that 'for best results with e-juice, set wattage to 15 watts' for what it's worth... I started with ego batteries, then the seemingly huge leap to a MVP 2 and zmax, then spent the past few months messing with mechs and getting my builds sorted. This thing is the next level for me, it really is a magnificent mod - vaped it, love it indeed!

PROS
Superb build quality No leaks Excellent airflow design - flavour +++ Decent capacity Very easy build deck
Build quality is perfect, zero flaws. It doesn't leak. It's extremely easy to build on the 'hangman' posts - literally a couple of minutes to slip in your coils and fantastic access to snipping excess wire from the top of the posts. Screws hold the coils securely - no issues for TC vaping. Wicks very well and is tolerant of lesser technique, never had a dry hit or flood even when using high wattages. Flavour is really superb, a very satisfying thick greasy vape that brings out all sorts of different nuances depending on the wattage/temperature settings, up there with a good RDA imo. I used an OBS Crius Plus daily for 2 years (finally retired it) which required meticulous wicking and would usually leak/condensate slightly at the bottom airflow holes. This is a very impressive evolution of tank RTAs. Unreservedly recommended.

PROS
Good flavour - nice vape Easy to build, grips wires well Excellent juice capacity Extra top cap Excellent tolerances Good value
CONS
Scuffs/machining marks Post hole threads not great Dual coil only Paucity of spare parts
Comes with 2 spare grub screws, nice little drawstring carry pouch and an Allen wrench. All parts fit together well with good tolerance. Top cap/drip tip threads are quite good and a standard 510 drip tip will fit in the top. There are a couple of machining scratches on mine on the outside. 510 pin protrudes nicely and works well on hybrid mech. Was quite clean on arrival. Grub screws clamp wires securely but the post hole threads are not particularly smooth. Easy to build on but best to twist off wires to avoid shorting to the top cap or scraping top cap's internal o-ring. Also best keeping coil diameter to 2.5mm or less otherwise coils will touch each other. Nice deep juice well that comfortably holds 30+ drops. With the standard cap and airflow wide open there is still a slightly restrictive draw but flavour is very good and plenty of vape time between refills. The smaller hole airflow choices work fine for mouth to lung vaping. The alternate top cap can be used to provide airflow to the sides of the coils with the bottom airflow cut off - again a restrictive lung vape. When bottom airflow is fully open the side holes allow air in to hit the ends of the coils. This admittedly provides more cloudage but significantly attenuates both vape density and flavour. I'm currently running it with the standard cap with bottom airflow fully open on a SS Nemesis mech and it's a fine on-the-go dripper.

PROS
Cheap kanthal
CONS
oily ++
Very oily stuff but cleans up pretty much the same as all my other spools of (more expensive) clean kanthal. Really needs torched before using but otherwise it seems totally fine.
