Liking the look/idea
I've seen this type of thing with the chip where it converts a hybrid mech into semi regulated!! A simple disk that pops under your 510. Looks like wot we have here. And the brand? We all know the pedigree of this company! No issues whatsoever

I have the sxk atto which seems like the same thing. The only apparent differences are that the sxk is 22mm and doesn't have a screw holding the kick in place. Been using it a few weeks and it's great. Planning on picking up this one as well

I love the idea of it. If they made an aluminum version I'd buy one.
If all you're doing is tossing idiot fallacies around all day on behalf of one political agenda you're either incredibly stupid or just punching the clock.

Great looks!

The screw though, is a flaw. I have an authentic Colibri, which uses a similar chip attached with a tiny screw. the screw came loose and got stuck between the + and - in the top of the battery which caused a hard short!

I replaced the chip for an Atto chip and now it works fine again.

but if you buy this, either ditch the screw (can do without), or glue it to the board.

You'd be better off using a little thread lock Cattledog69 if you are worried but to be honest it's a pretty long screw on these, I'd be very surprised if you didn't notice it was loose way before it got to the point of any kind of dangerous situation. But cheers for the heads up anyway, I'll make sure it's tight when I change cells.

The chip is already locked in place by the steel tube. Even without a battery in it, the chip can't go anywhere. So why have it at all?


But about the tube, I wonder if it would fit a 2x700 when you remove the insulator rings :)

Some great feedback here, just what i was expecting. These style of devices will probably become the next big fad. Especially at these low end prices it's not gonna cost an arm and a leg is It?
And briefly could someone tell me if the slam cap devices are pretty much the same as what we are looking at here? They have the side firing function and are the same dimensions.

I see a couple of reasons: a) solid connection to the battery positive, not relying on the outer contact ring (may not make contact when the top cap is not fully screwed on); b) better cooling of the MOSFETs - using the top cap as a heat sink; and c) no way the board can fall out when changing batteries from the top.

Todd's info session /warning
Here's a link to Todd's live discussion of the chip here and a potentially dangerous design flaw.
The atto chip has this same flaw

The new Atto has addressed this somewhat. The metal leaf spring on the new Atto is far stronger than the Cthulhu, but this is a good video and anyone purchasing either mod should watch it.
