PROS
Long lasting between charges. Stylish and powerful. Voltage adjustment is smooth
CONS
Would be nice to see this in a 22mm size.
This battery is perfect size and power for Protank/Aerotank, and enables you to use subOhm coils with the latter. The straight beauty ring is attached to a threading separate from the 'eGo' threads, so you won't need to remove it: any 'eGo' threaded devices (CE4, mini Protank/Aerotank, Vapetank etc.) should just screw on anyway. Comes in a sealed plush box with authenticity scratch 'n sniff code. Specification leaflet gives minimum usable resistance as 0.5Ω. Apparently contains an ICR battery, so I wouldn't go that low; I've been using it at around the 0.9Ω mark with a variety of devices with excellent performance. Output is 18W, which is comparable to many APVs which are double the price, so you get a good bang for your buck. Whereas the ordinary Sidewinder2 has a diagonal lines engraving, this one has fused hexagons; so, if you have one of each (with the same colour) you won't get confused, even though they are identical in dimensions. I tested the voltage with various meters, analogue and electronic: the lowest setting (3V) read 2.95 on my meter. The highest was 5.9-6.1V . Overall: quality battery which can be used with anything.

PROS
Keeps a constant 3.7V Shiny appearance, easy to keep clean Good value Handles low resistance atomizers, maybe down to 0.5 or 0.3 Ω
CONS
No instruction manual No charging cable Fixed positive pin: a floating one would suit this better, albeit with the risk of reduced longevity.
Usual procedure to switch on or off: press fire button 5 times quickly. Unusual indicator: it cycles through 3 different colours 3 times (red, white and blue).This is indicated on a small LED above the fire button, whereas other batteries mainly have the LED actually in the button, or around it. Voltage seems quite steady. Very long lasting: I've had it awhile, but never had to recharge it yet, which is done with a micro USB cable (not included). Of course, you never know what the longevity of these devices is like, but no problems so far in 2 months usage. Running a 0.75 Ω RDA on it for some time, performs fine.

PROS
Minimum moving parts Easy to check juice level, and top up No leaks Fits a variety of RDAs
CONS
Just too big Needs multiple coils and low Ohms to avert a cold vape Fragile - solid mod stand needed, and a heavy mod Needs a tea cosy to keep it warm
This could be better: a smaller chamber would give warmer vapour. As it is, you'll need a few low Ohm coils to get anything good out of it, as the large space just dilutes and cools the vapour otherwise. Makes dripping a lot easier though, and could be fun with the right build. If you get the ideal RDA base, it'll be leak free as well. Petri seems to be the snuggest fit, and both SV and Aeolus are useable with some added teflon tape. It might rekindle interest in leaking RDAs with useless wells lying in your failbox, but the dead space in this kills flavour for me.

PROS
Easy to build on. Holds a lot of juice. No leaks. Airflow adjustable. Warm tasty smoke. Can be used in places where smoking is prohibited. Spares bag contains 2 O rings, 2 screws and MBS
CONS
Plastic tank. Plastic tank with no O rings to hold it in place. Base is very thin, so difficult to unscrew from mods. Painted finish is colourful, but inferior to gold plated brass (or, even better, solid gold). 510 pin NOT adjustable: it holds the whole tank section together. Drip tip not really my cup of tea
A dripper with a tank! What will they think of next? And, why didn't they make something like this a few years ago? Initial dismay when I saw the tank: no O rings, and freely spinning round. Fixed by wrapping some teflon tape round the base, and screwing the 510 pin down. I found a good YT video by Indianvapers to get the hang of this, and ended with a similar build, but using Nichrome NR-R-NR twisted wires to get 0.65Ω, wicked with plenty of cotton. Powered up with the Firephoenix2 (a cheap VV Mod): even on minimum setting (yellow light at 3.7V) got excellent warm flavourful vapour at 21W. Although everything fits together well enough and seems secure, I still don't like that press-fit plastic tank. I would prefer a top cap with a more expensive look to it, and a wider base would make it easier to use. But the vapour generated and ease of building (together with an all day volume of eliquid) makes this an excellent RDA.

PROS
Screw threaded topcap keeps it leak free Drip tip is perfect, similar to the Aerotank one, but a tad thinner Floating 510 connector enables a totally flush fit with Mods. Unusual post design may be beneficial for coiling for some people. Airflow control, with 4 airholes of varying sizes. Juice well is deeper than average, and the same width as mainstream RDAs O-ringless, meaning no mess, and no paper towels required
CONS
Single coil mode only, not a negative for me though. Thin post slits demand 27 or higher gauge wire. Would be nice to see this in varying finishes, such as Bronze/Brass/Gold 25 mm would be a better size than 20.5
After an initial 'surprise' with the post holes, this is actually a pretty good atomizer. First of all, the size is deceptive: as the walls are thinner than similar atties, and there are no O rings, the deck works out to the same diameter as the usual 22 mm type RDAs, but much deeper (say 25% than normal). So, it holds a decent quantity of juice: 40 drops initially, then 15+ when refilling. Cleaner to use than others, because the top cap screws off. Airflow control is.....'unusual': 6 holes around the topcap, of varying sizes, of which 2 point towards the neg posts when screwed down. As there is a single hole in the airflow control ring, you have to build your coil in the sector of the deck to suit whichever hole ends up there. Posts have a slit instead of a hole, and will only accommodate 27 gauge (or thinner) wire. A useful workaround is to use twisted wires for lower resistance, as you can slide the 'frayed' end of the wire with multiple strands on top of each other. This 'sliding down of the wire actually makes it easier to position coils in some ways. The nuts are knurled....not ideal, but certainly usable, and hold the wires in place ok. Standard types of coil work fine on this: I ended up using twisted nichrome NR-R-NR wires for a 0.75 Ω effort, giving good smoke and flavour. I'm a bit wary about the floating 510 connection: important for Mech mod users to use the right Mod, and avoid any 'hybrid' ones. Minimal pieces on this atty, and few (if any) user serviceable parts. Looks good and works well though!
