Cheap. Light weight. 10ml capacity (Not controlled by myself, manufacturer rating)
CONS
Bad contact system. Bad button system. Bad 510 connector.
Holly crap ! As this box is really cheap, I've ordered this one just to make me an idea about squonking. If it appear to be good for me, I'll go for more expensive one. Wow! Unless I complete rebuilt it like a DIY kit this hill off crap is impossible to use. All things are wrong: - Womby central post with two sort of plastic pieces, a porky plated central post screwed in a thick brass washer fall inside the box at the fist aty screwing. All is loosened just to authorize the spring to moove. When I manage to reassemble I realized that by conception it's impossible for the spring loaded (NOT silver plated) post to works. At least it can stay in place, anyway when loosened it's to short to make a contact with the aty's center post. Fire button is a walking dead one. There is A metal tab on which the button presses to make contact with the 510 brass washer. Lot of sparks... Not really a concern as this tab pop off the box by itself... And so one... At least it's a plastic box so I don't have any shortcut ! Once rebuild et all pieces secured, this little hip off crap works dam well !!! So I've got my answer : I really enjoy squonking !

Nice Finished pretty plain real wood box. Perfect size. Charges from micro USB. Wattage is set by +1/-1 Watt (no decimals, perfect for me). Fires immediately after wake up. + and - buttons and gravity sensor. Spare reverse treaded central pin.
CONS
Not spring loaded 510 pin. Screws on battery cover on a high power device powered by a single battery. Works only with buttonless battery. Ugly "Luxyoun" logo on the screen window. Wattage is set by +1/-1 Watt (no decimals, some people will hate that).
First impressions. Very well made pretty little box mod that fire hard. Only the logo is a bit ugly. It works!!! At high wattage (i.e. over 40W), the single battery drain fast and that's a pain to find screws on the battery cover. I immediately drill the wood and glue some magnets. The 510 pin isn't spring loaded. At least it's a reverse treaded screw adjustable pin and it comes with a spare screw. Even in the lower position, the 510 post is too short for some atties. There is often a gap. I use this gap to place a ring for a neck lanyard. So it's more a pro than a con for my point of view. All in all, I'm very happy with this mod. It's beautiful and it rocks hard !!! That's all for this first out of the box review. I'll be back in few month !

Very bright Light weight Very very bright 3 modes Very, very, very bright Phosphorescent top ring Cheap as dust Did I mention this thing is bright ?
CONS
Aluminum body and thread 3 modes Need a modified.... Mod (!!!) for full convenience 21mm diameter is a bit fun on a 22mm mod.
This little thing is as small as a small dripper but it rocks. Very, very, very bright !!! 3 modes : High, low, high strobe. IMO only the high mode is useful, the low mode is too low and the strobe makes me a bit nervous. I use it only on a mech mod, I didn't try it on an electro mod but my intuition is I should check the voltage before firing it on an electronic mod as FT says "Working voltage: 3.0-4.2V". For full convenience I use a spacer magnet placed on the negative post of the battery of a diameter slightly smaller than that of the fire button contact to have a continuous light when I screw the bottom cap. Otherwise, without magnet, I must press and hold the firing button as long as I need light. The top ring is phosphorescent, so it glows some minutes in green after I turn off the beam, a bit like ancient watch needles, and that's pretty convenient to find the mod in the dark just after turn off. Essential useful gizmo if you already own an e-cig. If you don't have one, buy two !!!

Cheap Light weight Light size Performing for the size Long lasting fixed battery USB charging
CONS
Random colors No "end of charge" indicator while charging. No "low battery" indicator while using Red light while charging
Perfect key ring flash light. You can charge one time and use it for hours. Light beam is pure withe and enough powered to serve as a second gear in case of main gear failure. For the price you can order some you let placed every where (Keyrings, inside a car, etc., even attached at the zipper of your backpack) and feel happy to find a good light source is case of needing. The device isn't specified as waterproof in specs but there are some O Rings and I'm quite sure it can sustain some rainy days without failure as long as the USB caps is in place. I'll place one on my motorcycle keyring for testing and see how it can handle month of bad treatments. The device's keychain is very convenient but even if I haven't tested it on heavy duty, it seems to be a bit fragile and as I don't want to loose this gear I'll replace by a strong good one. Or at least I'll put some drop of solder to secure every ring of the chain. Only cons: - LED indicator stay "Red" as long as the device stay plugged on USB so you can't know if charge is finished or not, I assume that a so tiny device can't have a battery over 300mAh so I assume that it can be charged in maximum one hour on a low duty USB port. I've let one in charge for one night plugged in a smartphone (2A max) charger. In the morning there was still the "red" light, no suspect heat both on the side of the lamp and on the side of the charger, device still working fine when unplugged and turn on, so I assume there must be some security inside when charge is complete. Only suppositions of course, there is quite noting as information in Fasttech specs and nothing at all on the device itself or its package. You can test at your own risk. Moreover, even if it's a low red light, it's a light in the dark. So if you let it in charge for one night in your camping tent, you'll pass all night under a warm red light... If it doesn't put a fire in your tent off course. :-D :-D :-D - All the 4 I've ordered and received works fine, light sources are all pure withe but random colors for the flashlight body. Apparently you can't choose the color you want. 4 ordered: Received 2 purple, 1 black, 1 blue. I'd like a yellow, may be next time...

Tiny. Light weight. 1500mAh. Quick charge.
CONS
Unreadable screen under strong light.
This little baby is a perfect pocket friendly companion with a low power aty. Can last a day long with a Nautilus X on 8W. Unlike other users, I have not encountered any problems with the 510. I put on it lot of different sort of aty and all set fine. I use it as a all day mod with a small aty (Nautilus X) at low power setting and high nicotine strength (I use 6mg on my ultra sub ohm cloud makers, 10mg on subohm, 18mg on Nautilus). With this setting it's a long lasting battery, small consumer of liquid. The main disadvantage is the very low backlight of the screen. Maybe the price to pay for having a good autonomy?
