Build construction is better than I expected Authentic DNA 200 Bright clear display All functions are working Plenty of depth on the 510 connector Gold plated 510 center pin Gold plated power contacts Two means of charging 510 pin sits high enough for larger atomizers Rubberized exterior coating is nice I can replace the Lipo eventually
CONS
Somewhat subjective but the battery life is what I expected. It isn't going to last me a full day even at 30 watt output on a .04 ohm coil.
I'm pleasantly surprised with the build quality as I don't have to do any of what I thought I might with this device. I'm can be a very picky person so consider this very high praise. I had been questioning the potential battery life and it's about what I expected but I have been running a very low ohms resistance coil too. It should have reasonable battery life running a .1 ohm coil or higher, at least a full day I'd guess above .1. The rubberized exterior was a nice surprise, real comfortable in the hand and buttons are easily accessed. The Lipo charger I'm not sure about, it has the Lipo charging on it now and it isn't getting warm. I'll hook it up to Escribe once charged and see what it has to say. Speaking of Escribe I'd make that the first step if you purchase this device, my software was outdated. Like I said I'm picky and I like this device, I will like it more when the other battery options show up!

Top filling Tank options Don't have to dump fluid for adjustments or rebuilds I like the look of it
CONS
Hyped up way too much Build deck seems smaller than other Kclones Weight Lots of little parts Springs aren't that great for conductivity
What a bunch of hype. Some other variants had me contemplating purchasing the original but after experiencing previous versions and than this I'll pass on this original. The two strong points this atomizer does hold is it is able to be top filled and that the coil can be adjusted or rebuilt without dumping, syringing liquid from the tank. Those few strong points don't increase to quality of the vape and that's where I put my money.

Reasonable combination but the atty is outstanding with just a little work!
The device is of reasonably good quality but the atomizer shines brightly with just a little work. Drill the decks air hole just large enough for a needle bottle or syringe. Get the chrome off the positive contact at the 510 with some extra fine sandpaper, add washers to the positive screw on the deck, build a dual coil auto dripper , 8 wrap micro coil each side with 30 gauge kanthal and finally 2mm to 2.5mm holes in the cap 2 of them and call me in the morning. At just under 20 watts this produces great taste as well as loads of vapor.

PROS
Completely copper! Should house about any length 18650 on the market, can't speak for diameter though as I don't know. Coated copper to retain the bright finish, see cons! Air control operates well and holes are aligned fairly well. My kick fits well but I never use them and being copper I don't imagine many intend to use a kick but I count it as a plus for those whom may use them. Clean looking engraving although pretty shallow. Nice 510 threading that has fit some attys that wont fit in other devices 510.
CONS
This same coating on the copper to retain the finish was applied to the threads so it increases the voltage drop. The inner spring that retain the pins integrity through adjustment of the switches throw had to be replaced as it would let the pin fall out. .2 voltage drop on receipt in a completely copper mech mod, not so good when I can home build a mod from a water pipe with mostly brass parts and it's voltage drop is only .12! Lack of matching copper atomizers on the market. Switch lock sticks in unlocked position. Threading on the switches threads could use a lot of improvement. The threading on the battery cylinder between the main tube and the 650 tube are extremely tight, this can be taken as a pro or a con depending on how you look at it. Original springs allowed the weight of a Kayfun to cause the device to fire when stood upright on the switch.
Other than the quirks I have mentioned I'm very pleased with this product and for the amount paid verses similar options I personally think this is about the best bang for the buck in a mechanical device with potential for very low voltage drop. Keep in mind this is only my second day with this product and only about a days total use so far. Yes at this point I would suggest this device to a friend.

Good capacity for liquid Glass tank Stainless Easy to rebuild the coils
Both the RG200 and RG400 have surprised me, better than ProTanks 1 and 2 in my opinion.
