Price Build quality ABS construction Supports 18650, 20700 an 21700 batteries Vape while charging function Semi regulated Spring loaded 510 Silicone bottle Frosted door panel Plug in USB charging port and cable Voltage, resistance, temperature range 18650 battery adapter
I'm really impressed with this semi mechanical/regulated squonk mod made out of ABS material. The overall build quality and finish is very good. It features chip protection, overheating protection and can support builds as low as 0.05ohm. Voltage range is 3.2V-4.2V with a maximum power output of 120W and 60A. It has led indicators when in use and while charging plus a vape while charging feature. You can use 18650, 20700 and 21700 batteries and an 18650 battery adapter is included. The silicone bottle is very good quality. The 510 pin is spring loaded, the fire button throw is short and instant and there is no sign of arcing. The frosted front and back door panels look great, they use 4 small but strong magnets in each corner and fit perfectly with no sign of panel movement. The contact plates appear to be plated copper, provide good conductivity and do not tear your battery wraps. Attys up to 24mm fit with no overhang and is comfortable in the hand. I cannot find any cons with this squonk mod and at this price it is a bargain. Hopefully they will offer the different coloured frosted door panels and other colours as a separate purchase.

This clone of the SteamTuners top fill kit for the Kayfun Lite 2019 rta is not as good as the authentic and unfortunately it doesn't fit all the clone versions because some have a larger diameter deck than the chimney piece on this kit. On the ones that it does fit the top fill works reasonably well. The frosted PC tank is thinner and the etching is not as deep as it is on the authentic. The SteamTuners logo is engraved on the chimney and the threads are smooth. For the price of this top fill kit and the chance that it won't fit your particular clone version I'd rather buy the clone with the top fill kit already included.

PROS
Flavour Quality machining and finish
CONS
Proprietary drip tip
What an absolute gem of a rda. This little talked about or reviewed single coil 22mm rda produces flavour which very few other flavour rdas can match. This stainless steel version has an adjustable inner air flow cap and a removable proprietary drip tip. The draw from the single air flow hole is an open dl type but it can be dialed down to suit your style and almost mtl vaping if you use the one piece PC cap/drip tip from the non stainless steel versions. The base has knurling which aids in removing the rda from your mod. The one piece insulator/air flow post looks unusual and I have not been able to confirm what it's made of but it works flawlessly and it has not melted or degraded when running it up to 75W. One post is intentionally positioned taller than the other post with openings for the coil also higher in order to make it easier to install your coil where the coil legs are not pre bent or parallel although the slits for your coil are a bit small, so trying to fit thick exotic wire coils is impossible without filing the slits to make them taller. A 4mm deep juice well is sufficient for the size of the rda and in squonk mode it's perfect. This rda really shines above most other rdas in the flavour department, for all types of e-liquid flavours and VG/PG ratios. For me it beats the Citadel, the Haku Venna, the Flave and other highly regarded flavour rdas. Pick one up and experience the flavour it produces for yourself.

Small Light Hard hitting Well machined
This Ulton aluminium clone version of the Bestia Animal hybrid mechanical mod lives up to it's name, it's an animal. Small, lightwieght, good looking, hard hitting and well machined. The threads on both caps and the tube are smooth with no burrs. A short insulated tubing piece in the top offers basic protection to prevent the mod from auto firing. The side firing switch has the 'B' logo on it and the switch is firm enough, only requiring a mild press in order to make contact with the cap threads. It sits flush against the tube and the throw is about 1mm. Over time it may require readjusting. The bottom cap has two kidney shaped cut outs for battery venting and Bestia engraved on it. I've had no issues with the firing switch or any of my batteries getting hot after continual use.

PROS
Cheap Quality Available for various coil diameters
CONS
Package gives it a slightly off taste
Updated review as I noticed I made an error and forgot to add a few things. This 5m organic twisted cotton is more practical to use and more cost effective compared to buying square pads or the Cotton Bacon/Ken Doh/Ko Gen Doh type cotton bundles as there are various width sizes available for different coil diameters and you don't have to guess how wide you have to cut it. Just insert one end into a coil and cut the other end at your desired length. This provides less wastage. For me, 5m yields around 125 separate 40mm length wicks. The measurements of these twisted organic cotton wicks are suitable for most coil sizes using the following as a guide: 0.8g/m for 1.5mm i.d. coils, 1.0g/m for 2mm i.d. coils, 1.2g/m for 3mm i.d. coils, 1.4g/m for 3.5mm i.d. coils and 1.6g/m for 4mm i.d. coils. The packaging it comes in seems to give it a slightly off taste but I found that taking it out of that bag, letting the cotton air for a short time and then storing it in a different plastic zip lock sandwich bag eliminates this taste. I found this cotton to be very absorbent and long lasting. No problems with wicking, e-liquid flows through it efficiently and there's no need to peel off any outer skin or fluff your wick ends. Highly recommended.
