PROS
Very compact. Stainless Steel Pretty nice firing button Firing buttons lock has nice threading 510 connection for various atomizers
CONS
Positive pin is too deep and is not a real floating type. Tube length could stand to be longer for more battery options like longer protected batteries and maybe even 14650s. Male threads on body section are cut too deeply and almost allow the threads to strip and would if tightened enough.
It took a little while after this showed up to be pleased with it. First the section with the male threads on the body seemed as though it was stripping and it was if tightened enough. I set it on a lathe dead center and hit the other end (510 end) with a dead blow hammer expanding the cylinders diameter a little at a time checking frequently and continued just enough to tighten up the male threads to the female threads. Next I pulled a positive pin from a cartomizer, the type with a taller profile at the 510 side and cut the other end to the right length to just clear the insulator inside. The original is two a part and screws together/apart, it's just too tall on the battery cylinder side and too short on the 510 side causing the threads to seem too short on the telescoping area. All's well now.

PROS
Straight out of the box function is very good. Finish is nice. Slightly better taste than a non-pyrex Vivi. No leaks spring loaded positive pin
CONS
It still reminds me of a Vivi Plastic drip tip Cap can be fiddly to replace but seals well slightly tight draw.
A little early for a real review but this seems to be a really nice Vivi.

PROS
Easy filling with small diameter syringe, too large and expect bypass and a mess. Being able to lock the carto in place with the set screw in the base of the tank. Reasonable tank capacity. Good fit and finish. No leaks so far.
CONS
The cartos taste as though they were glued together and when in use they taste as if the glue is burning. Limited drip tip ability being the fill hole screw is in the way of some drip tips with wider bases. No air channels in the base so flush mount mods will cut off air flow. Plastic tank material.
The only reason I would choose this tank over the Artemis is easier filling without removal from the battery/mod. The cartos are absolute junk so just toss it right off the bat the burnt bubber/glue taste isn't worth the juice wasted. Another fill hole with screw on top would allow for easier filling allowing air to escape as juice took it's place.

PROS
Hits very well when it works Construction seems to be very stable
CONS
I've built coils to 1.8 that this device will not fire. The ohms resistance checker is all over the place and far from accurate, now I ahve to find the time to return it, it's a paperweight.
I liked it until the ohms resistance circuit went south, it now a frustrating P.O.S.!

PROS
It works very well once machined correctly.
CONS
You better own a lathe if yours shows up like mine did.
The AIOS wouldn't even thread into my Chi-you because the threads were not milled deep enough. I fortunately have a lathe and am skilled enough to manage what needed to be done. The threads were at least 4 thousandths over the diameter of the threads in theChi-you clone I have. The base of the threads was even too large for the female threads to go over. Both the positive and negative posts came lose when I went to lossen the screws for the connection of the kanthal. Tightening the posts was all that was needed. If the other I ordered before this one showed up shows up the same it will be sent back.
