PROS
Cheap authentic dripper
CONS
Metal Top cap/Drip tip Centre post fiddly Gets very hot
Grabbed one because i always enjoyed my derringer and this reminds me of that, i use mine mostly with my SMPL for vaping my own N.E.Ts and tasting new diy mixes. The drip tip/top cap thing will never grow on me, nor will that centre post with its "I dont want to clamp your wire just want to keep spitting it into the gap". Its small and gets very hot quick, and that metal tip in your gob does your lips no favours at all, but its worth grabbing some if they come back into stock.

PROS
Solid build with nice threads Continuous silver plated battery contact Battery cell options
CONS
Weak resin switch base Lots of nooks and crannies to clean if you keep it shiny
I grabbed one with a site wide discount offer after reading some good reviews, its well made and with a constant battery switch contact, its very different to what i was used to with my other mods. Its the best switch i have used so far with any mechanical mod, and in its design significantly reduces arcing on the switch pin and negative battery contact, and no dancing around trying to find a glass of water to dip your fingers in to worry about. The only flaw is the switch base resin/plastic part that has weak threads, mine snapped off when i tried to change the pin over for a different battery cell, but after sending images to Fasttech they sent me a replacement no problem at all and its been fine up to now. Just be careful when unscrewing it and watch out for the spring lol. I dont have equipment to measure voltage drop but i vape at 0.15 > 0.2 ohms with good battery cells and it hits very hard for my needs. Also worth mentioning is it will tarnish in time, and i personally found it much easier to use a toothbrush with metal polish to bring it back to bling new. Would i buy another... If they made the resin/plastic switch part in a nice brass or copper plate then i would grab another one without hesitation. Hope this helps someone

As per title
CONS

Dont let the usual magnified FT images fool you these things are tiny, i personally use mine to extend the 510 positive pin for hybrid connections. Just remove the pin and slide one of these down the thread, screw it back in and double check nothing is touching the atomiser body so you dont get a short, it is rubber so will perish so i change mine out every couple of months to be safe. If memory also serves me right i originally grabbed some to seal my KF Lite filling screw, but later moved on to use nylon screws which were much better. Hope this helps

PROS
Everything
CONS
Nope
I dont normally like RTAs i find it a right faff trying to get the wicking just perfect so it wont flood or dry hit you, this tank is very different though and i found it very easy to set up and get on with my day vaping. Beautifully made and for me personally its like one of those benchmark moments like when i got my first Kayfun lite or Orchid Rta. Its great for me with the interchangeable coil airflow inserts as i MTL my favourite tobacco flavours but DTL my fruit and bakery juices, so i have a few set up for just that. I tried to make friends with the drip tip but i found myself just laughing all the time, so its ended up in my shit box in case i ever need a good laugh. Its a no brainer for the price and thanks to Fasttech for stocking them. Grab some while you still can you wont regret it.

Lots of mesh for your money Good quality Easy to work
CONS
None
It costs a lot for this stuff in the UK and you hardly get anything for your money, so this is an excellent deal for me. I vape mostly N.E.Ts and by nature they are very gunky despite using filters with a 2 micron retention, i decided to give mesh a go so i could dry burn my coils (and mesh wicks) more often instead of changing the cotton out every 5 mins. It works very well for my needs and while its a bit more effort the flavour you get from mesh is well worth it, i should point out if your a cloudy person then organic cotton is still better over mesh. If your new to using mesh then some tutorials are your best bet, and your first stop (and probably last) should be with the excellent videos of Qorax Stan on Utube, he shows you how to oxidise the mesh correctly with the minimum of tools. A Bic lighter and some Upholstery needles and your halfway there, mine came from Tesco if your in the UK and are multipurpose needles made by haber product code H008 but any large needle you can snaffle from your mums shortbread sewing tin should do the trick. Grab some give it a go and if its not for you its cheap anyhow, but if your a flavour junkie you might never look back. Hope this helps someone
