Functions in temperature control with TCR 120 Easy to build
CONS
Not really an Alien Clapton Not Stainless Steel 316L
This is a flat wire core clapton of medium quality and not what you expect of an Alien Clapton. Due to the flat wire core it's easy to build a coil. Unfortunately this coil is not entirely SS316L. I tried different mods even some with DNA, Yihi, Dicodes chips and you simply can not run thiswire in the SS316/SS316L setting. To make it easier for you: a TCR of 120 functions fine on all mods. It took me quite some time to figure it out. I won't buy this wire again.

Easy to build BF pin Excellent flavor due to condensed chamber (20mm) Finish of the top cap seamless
CONS
Posts not perfectly parallel (no impact on building on it)
The posts are not perfectly aligned, which gives an odd first impression. Building is never the less easy and it's incredible how much flavor you can get from a simple round wire build. Resistance is stable, so temperature control works seamless. This RDA comes only with a squonk pin, which is no issue, since you really don't want to drip this tiny RDA. It is hard to oversquonk this RDA. This is one of my favorite RDA. Don't get fooled by this price and grab one!

Good flavor Nice design
CONS
510 Center pin pertrudes very much
This is an Kylin M clone of average quality. I had another in stainless steel which had a shorter 510 center pin, this one comes with a pertruding sloted center pin. Machining is average, but it vapes good and has no conductivity issues. The use with SS mesh and temperature control is seemless.

Nearly identical look as the original Taste as good as the original 510 pin slightly more protruding
CONS
Post screws
Great clone with looks which are close to the original. Due to the more protruding 510 pin hybrid safe for mech mod lovers. I had to replace one of the post screws after the second build, but spares are included.
