is the button on the SMPL(SP) clone that sketchy?

Yes, it is because it does not have a flat surface to battery minus.
Within 7 years I only had one short (in a SS mech mod).
The thing heats up very fast and very hot, all plastic parts melted.
I was feeling the heat in my vest and had time to react.
If you dont see or feel your mod, this thing will catch fire.
I am using my SMPLs only at home, in the car the Nemesis.
E.g. Plume Veil SKU 1891702 still has the Nemesis construction,
but much longer than the 79mm SMPL and button without lock.
