I am between this and Mixx, and longevity is important. Which one do you think is better? Is converter's 510 connection press fitted?

On the Converter the pin is spring loaded + you can adjust it with the bottom screw. Other than that, i couldn't tell you as never taken it apart.
Both are great, solid mods, I tend to use the MIXX a bit more.

On the MIXX it's easier to navigate with the classic 3 buttons,
the Converter needs to take some habit to use, also it switches off after xx minutes when you leave it alone.
But those details you might already be aware.

Yea, I know all about them, except whether or not Converter's 510 is press fitted. I couldn't find anything about that on the net. I can see the screws on the 510 of the Mixx, if they are not just cosmetics, it should be more durable on that part then Converter. As I said, I need it to last.

I wouldn't mind the one button operation and auto shut off but 510 is a deal breaker if it is not screwed.

I'm pretty sure, those screws are NOT just for cosmetics. Most of these mods you can take apart, I think they kind of stopped with press-fitting/ gluing essential parts with these mods.

I'd go for the MIXX if I had to choose between the two.

One advantage with the Converter: (which I don't really do, however I did it once) You can use bubble tanks on it even with certain 24mm RTAs.
