Battery door
I'm worried about that battery door. That's the same design as the Capo which I did not order from Fasttech. I wish I had because it was broken when I got it. Fasttech has better service than the company I got the Capo from.

So, I will be ordering this from Fasttech in the future.

In 'WisJoyleaf' standards, I'd say eleaf is the no-nonsense, 'basic' brand. It won't 'break' but it might be slightly 'off'.
e.g. screen off centre, 510 not 100% straight.

It also should be cheap, but I'd say this is expensive for eleaf.

True, I've never had an issue with any Eleaf product. I like the chip on my Pico well enough with only one complaint but it may be user error anyway. lol

Using articfox firmware makes all their product a joy to use.

Is it any good? solid?

The articfox team are taking donations to start development for the 'tiny screen' version of the firmware (I think it's more difficult then normal). My guess is, it will be coming soon.

Seems pretty solid, doesn't leak, even the RDA is alright.

That's the Nefarious on top in the picture though.

If I were to get nit picky, the 510 is a little proud, maybe 3/4 of a mm. The beauty band for the RTA does hide the gap under atties that will fit in it.

The +/- button/s can be a little fiddly.

TC isn't great but the TCR setting can clear that up well enough.

I'm still growing used to the silicone bottles, these may be a bit soft and take a while to draw liquid back in. No strange taste from the silicone bottle yet either.

Good enough I'd suggest it for even the experienced squonker.

Not a drop leaked so far.
Filling is really easy.
For a right handed person the ergonomics are real nice.
It's shelved my RSQ and has been outside the house which is something to say. I've contemplated taking it to work.

A few subjective points would be, two parts can be removed from the mods assembly, the battery cap and the housing for the bottle which potentially means they can be lost, likely the only reason I may not take it to work.

I have a Red One, coming Monday, saw all the reviews But thanks Wylie for that insiders view.

If I were to get nit picky, it's HUUUUUGE considering it's a single battery device, even if that's a 21700 battery.

That's a very good point. I wonder if that's an 18650 squonker next to it.
