PROS
Machined perfectly No Burrs
CONS
Smelled of Oil
I've had this one since last week. Came in a box that looks exactly like the original, minus the authen sticker. it was even sealed with the same sticker that you see on the orig box. came with the three tanks, a whole crapload of extras. poster and manual (English and German) I think I got another aqua type - it's a winner. The bad: Reeked of oil so I had to take it ALL apart and clean it. took me two freaking hours to figure out how to get it back together. Put a build in it and it leaked everywhere. Turns out there wasn't an Oring around the base of the tank to the chimney. I put one on from the extras bag and it hasn't leaked since. Put another build in it and it leaked out the air holes. turns out I didn't turn off the juice control when I top filled. This thing is freaking complicated! Last build I put in has been fine, so there is quite a learning curve.

PROS
strong voltage is accurate
CONS
the button is terrible can't see how long it needs to charge
So I got this because with the other twist batteries I can't see what voltage I'm on, this is only a little better as the numbers are still small. The knarled bottom though makes it easy to grab and it stays! There are only two problems that I have with this battery - first one being that you have to wait for the button to stop lighting before you can fire it - I'm a long hit taker but you can't rehit this button for a nice long hit you have to wait. Also, when charging - all of my other batteries button lights up when charging then goes off when it's full - this one doesn't. You have to follow the charger red/green to tell and most of mine don't work or I'm color blind, so you never know if it's charged completely.

PROS
Looks like a cigarette Tip lights up Taste and vapor not too bad
CONS
Old technology Paper pack won't last Gets super hot
Well personally I used this when vaping first came out and it was a horrible experience and I went back to smoking for another couple of years - now we have tanks, cartos, mechanical mods, variable voltage/wattage - rebuildable coils - etc, even cig alikes have refillable tanks now. This is an old technology - but even this little tiny battery with disposable filters has a purpose and surprisingly it doesn't work all too bad. Maybe uncle dave who is 50 doesn't want to look like a techno geek carrying around a vamo vivi with a protank with blue liquid inside for his co workers at the construction site to sit and laugh at him - this would be a great way to get older folk or shy people to try. Overall quite impressed with the packaging - comes like a pack of cigarettes and you have to unwrap the cellophane. Inside you get a battery, an atomizer, and six "refills" you can pull the whole thing out of the box if you don't want to rip the bottom of the paper to get at the charger - it charges fine and lights up whenever you take a hit (auto battery) the vapor on it is quite good with a strong throat hit - which is much better than other "cig alikes" I have seen. The cons - the flavor is bad - really really bad. not really burny - just really bad. I got three packs of refills along with this order and they all taste the same, but there supposed to be different flavors. It gets really hot - the atomizer cannot handle big vaping for long periods of time. If you take lets say five puffs in succession the atomizer is hot to the touch. Overall I recommend this product if you know someone who doesn't smoke a lot or is trying to quit and needs something for those weak moments. Or maybe grandma - that's who I'm giving this one to.

PROS
Lightweight
CONS
Beware the bottom pin!
Great little dripper, a bit small for my taste but overall it has a good build quality. The problems I found were that it does not hold a lot of liquid (But I haven't had to recoil it yet) and the pin on the bottom will PUSH the main pin down on electronic devices like the VAMO VIVI. So if you have and use a vamo - these machines are notorious for the center pin getting pushed down underneath the rubber housing - thus causing no connection with your tank and reading 9.9OHM and not firing. Most tanks now have a spring that pushes it's pin up for optimum contact, but this one has a plastic ring surrounding the pin therefore it is stronger and will not go up when you screw it down tight onto machines - BE CAREFUL! :)

PROS
Most of the options work according to original
CONS
See below
I got this because the one on kickstarter is incredibly expensive they don't ship overseas to where I am. I picked this up thinking it was going to be pretty good, it is. But with a couple of small differences: 1. as the previous reviewer stated all buttons are clicky, there are no two silent like the original. 2. The smooth area where you are supposed to "breathe" is extremely shallow. 3. The ball under the gears does not click 4. The rocker switch is tight - I kinda like that though. Overall this works the gem, I am a super fidgeter and will continue to use these despite what I said above. All in all its a pretty decent clone.
