PROS
Decent mechanical device Adjustable battery connection at the 510 pin Easy to upgrade to magnetic switch Switches distance of throw Switch spring is strong enough for a 18650 and Ithaka without firing while standing on button Capable of flush mount depending on battery and accessory
CONS
Kick won't fit Poor threading as to depth inside of cylinders Air flow adjustment very accessory dependent as well as when it works its pretty much just opened or closed. A different o-ring may help a bit but I doubt it especially with a Puritank, no flow with the Puritank.
This is only after a quick first inspection and a few hours tinkering.

As a straight battery device it's decent. Adjustments have to be made here and there but I'd give it decent as a straight battery device and no better! These adjustments often end up leaving your accessory/atty mounted on the 510 connection alone not flush mounting making the connection weak and yes this could change with different battery lengths.

As for being a kicked device, well my kick will not fit, no how no way! In one tube its too tight and in the main battery tube my kick is way too loose. I've never seen this before but the inside diameter of the tubing used to make these devices changes diameter drastically!
Try swapping the tubes turning them upside down into the top of the battery cylinder for the kick and this leaves a gap between battery tubes.

I'm left with the idea these are factory seconds or thirds and that they were turned out on automated screws as the two I ordered are identical twins with exactly the same flaws and who knows how many more went through on this flawed program.

BS and loads of it for a meager tidy sum as listed.

So if you like your kicked devices this one is a gamble to a no go. In my opinion it should not be advertised as a kick able device. Even with a sleeve for a kick the changing diameter of the battery tubes makes fitting a kick close to impossible. Good old FastTech QC at work for us!
