PROS
Fantastic Price and just as good as the authentic. Actually slightly better than the authentic cosmetically as the top section screws in all the way.
CONS
None
The picture of the item in the FastTech listing is of the standard "Stratum 0 Classic" but I received two clones of the Stratum Zero Prestige which is the highest end model in the authentic series. The authentic Prestige is currently listed at $300 and out of stock. The authentic Stratum 0 Classic is $220 with very limited stock. There is a problem with the authentic models caused by the authentic Mosfet circuit board being too thick. This makes it impossible to screw the top cap on far enough to close the gap between the top cap and the body. This issue has been resolved on the YFTK clones by using a thinner circuit board. You can expect the top cap to screw all the way in on the clone. You will of course have varying amounts of gap at the bottom battery cover as without some sort of spring loaded battery cover this can't be avoided. Please note this is generally a very slight gap. Both 18650 and 21700 batteries vary slightly in length from brand to brand so a very slight gap at the bottom should be expected. This is not an issue for me at all. The finish on the clone is stellar with fantastic machining. I can't say if the thinner Mosfet circuit board on the clones are as good as the authentic but it has exactly the same functions and safety features. It is also cheap to replace if needed. I love these little mods and to my knowledge they are the shortest 21700 mechanical mod made to date. I am very pleased with them. I generally try and buy an authentic to compare with any clones I buy but an authentic Stratum Zero Prestige can't be purchased at this time. I learned about the gap in the top cap from YouTube reviews and all photos I can find of an authentic has the gap at the top cap. Perhaps OLF will correct this problem on future productions but for now I would rather have a YFTK clone. If you were fortunate enough to get an authentic while OLF had stock, there is a very good chance the YFTK Mosfet board may fix the gap issue on the authentic model. The YFTK Mosfet boards are available to buy separately at a very low price right here on FastTech. I ordered a few extra as the Mosfet board is probably the only part that could fail on this device.

3 Pack Tanks without coils are the best deal.
CONS
None
If you use a SMOK Nord and want some spare tanks this 3 pack is the way to go. You can buy these and buy your preferred coil heads separately. The only other option is to buy this as a single tank with two different coil heads. Most users end up using one or the other coil heads and not both. If you buy the set with coils you are most likely spending money for one coil head you will never use. It simply makes more sense to but extra tanks and buy only the coil heads you prefer. You will certainly save money this way.

Low price. Perfect Function
CONS
None
This coil fits the original SMOK Mord and several other pod tanks. They cost considerably less than the SMOK brand and performance is just as good. If you compare for yourself, I don't think you will notice any difference at all. If you need replacement coils for any pod tank capable of using the SMOK Nord coil heads I highly recommend these.

Mostly real stainless steel build. Fantastic build quality. Looks high end but very inexpensive.
CONS
Hard to find these days.
I like this device so much I bought a few extra just to keep back for years to come. It's temperature control isn't perfectly accurate to your settings. The fact that it may not cut off at the set temperature has no effect on usage. If you want 420 degrees F you may actually have to set it at 440 degrees. It is however very consistent with temperature control once you find your desired setting. This consistency is far more important than accuracy between set temperature and actual cutoff temperature. I've been using this device since it was introduced and I have had zero issues. The screen is small but very clear and bright enough to see outdoors. The screen size doesn't bother me in the slightest. In temperature control, I set it and forget it. Menu navigation is very simple. Of course it's heavy. It's a simple fact that stainless steel weighs a lot more than cheaper zinc alloy. I'd rather have a heavy devise made of stainless steel than any lighter devise made of zinc and/or plastic. If you can find one, I highly recommend it.

316L SS Coils come perfectly spaced. Legs are long enough to add an extra wrap if desired. Low cost and easy to install. Consistent from one coil to the next.
CONS
None
I've been vaping for several years and building my own coils for several years as well. There are a few times when I vape in wattage mode using A1 Kanthal but for the most part my everyday vape is temperature control using 316L stainless steel. These coils are very consistent from one to the next. This means I know what to expect when changing coils. The legs are long enough that you can slip them over a 3mm rod and use the excess leads to add and additional wrap if desired. For accurate temperature control, you are limited to a single coil build. Te use of dual coils will cause erratic temperature control no matter what or who's coil you are using. I can wrap my own coils from bulk spools of wire that are just as good as these. There is simply no reason to wrap my own while I have these. It's more work and these are so cheap you save nothing wrapping your own. This is true for single strand coils. If you are using a complex coil type consisting of any multi-strand wire configuration then the opposite is true. Pre-made complex coils are much more expensive than buying bulk wire and wrapping your own. Since almost all my builds are single strand 316L for temperature control, I use only these coils and highly recommend them.
