Welds look clean Wire performs Resistance checks out at ~1.5ohm per wire Easy to work with
I purchased these several months prior to the writing of this review. My order was delayed and my chosen shipping method meant it ended up taking a little over three months for the order to arrive. In that time, I fully moved on from the old "Protank" style coilheads and into more of a subohm tank and rebuildable area of the vaping hobby. So now I'm stuck with a bag of 100 NR-R-NR wires with too high of a resistance to be used in any of my current kit. I decided to tear down a worn out Kangertech Subtank 0.5ohm head. I ended up taking two of these 1.5ohm NR-R-NR wires, wrapping them in parallel around a 2.5mm rod. Slightly spaced for the coils and none of them overlapping. I carefully fed the wire, leads first, through the top opening of the coilhead. I put a 2.5mm rod through the juice flow holes on the side of the head to hold the coil in place and secured the leads at the bottom the same as you would a Protank head. Make sure your two leads on either side are kept together and secure them with the silicone (plastic, rubber - whatever it is...) gasket and then the metal pin in the bottom of the coilhead. This two-strand parallel coil reads 0.77ohms and fires comfortably at 18 watts in the Subtank. Is it perfect? No. But it works. 5 cents of wire and organic cotton plus about 5 minutes to tear out the old coil, wrap and install and wick the new coil. I think it's worth it.

CONS
Nothing I didn't already know before purchasing
I've given this iStick 30w five days of fairly constant usage before writing this review. So far, the device works exactly as I would expect. The ohms reader, battery life indicator, variable voltage and variable wattage displays all seem to be accurate and correct. I've had to charge the unit three times, so far, and each time the battery was around 25-30% when I decided to charge. Each charge took a little over 1 hour with the included charging cable and wall plug. The only drawbacks are things I knew before making this purchase. The buttons are a bit loose but that doesn't detract. While the threading is stainless steel, the topcap is plated brass or copper. The first time I gently screwed a Nautilus onto this mod, it left a circular scuff in the plating. No big deal, just something to be aware of. Also, the bottom charging port is mildly annoying as you cannot set the unit down like you normally would, when it is charging. Using as a passthrough is hindered by having to remove your atomizer between uses. Overall, I am very happy with this product.

This sleeve fits my iStick 50w quite well. In the past, I've had previous iStick mods slide out of my hand due to their smooth finish. I no longer have anxiety over my iStick 50w kissing pavement. This really is a perfect silicone sleeve - it fits like a glove and the buttons and screen line up with the sleeve incredibly well. Highly recommended at a terrific price.

Price Quality TC w/ SS316L is the only way to build/vape
CONS
None
I've been seeing 316L stainless steel wire popping around, here and there, the past six months but I was always hesitant to make a purchase. Other sites charge USD$6 or more for 10m of SS316L round wire. I'm on a fairly tight budget so those sites never caught my interest. Once I found this wire I figured I would give it a shot. 50m for around $5 - what a bargain. I've tested the wire against recommendations via SteamEngine and the wire checks out. Proper resistance for the length of wire suggested by SteamEngine. What's better - the wire works with SS316L TC mode with both my eVic-VTC Mini and Wismec RX200 mods! This wire is the real deal and it's far cheaper than buying from any other online retailer I have found. For any added, extra bonus I decided to attempt Clapton wire w/ SS316L and it's pretty great. I've used 26g, 28g and twisted 26g and 28g SS316L for the core with 32g SS316L for the outer wire. The coils vape nicely and also work with temp control. Note : Be prepared to use a lot of this 32g SS316L if you're making Clapton wire. I was able to blow through a 50m spool of 32g SS316L in less than a month.

Exact duplicate of original Atlantis/Nautilus bottom seal
I've installed one of these into one of my "Atlantis-style" tanks. It fits, it works. The glass tightens down on this seal the same as with the original that came with the tank. No leaks. Purchase these to add some variety to your tank. Another reviewer suggested a green drip tip. I'm all for that. Also add a green anti-slip ring to the tank and you'll be set.
