Relatively lightweight Clean, simple design/aesthetics Recessed/protected atomiser mounting Versatility in batteries/fuse/kick Much cheaper than the original Easy dismantling for cleaning, adjustment and tweaking 'Spare' spring and included Allen key
CONS
Expensive Clone, at time of purchase Wobbly switch (can be reduced) Switch unscrews (working on a solution) 510 pin changes adjustment too easily (not an issue for me) ((Prone to scratching - nature of material used))
Not perfect but pretty close. Generally of good/very good build quality with minor discrepancies. Visually, the top ring is asymmetric to a mounted atomiser but this is likely to vary, depending on how the unit is assembled and the atomiser in use. Other minor issues are mentioned in the above key points. For a "logo-less" device, I would prefer the switch to be plain but that is just nit-picking and could be sanded off, if it really troubled someone. The 510 top cap and pin arrangement is admirably simple but does limit the unit's versatility. With a little bit of tweaking a kick device can be placed under the 510 connection. This is made easier by replacing the pin with the supplied extra spring and the top cap from a Chi You. See product discussions for further information. An alternative would be to put a kick in the battery tube, with an 18500 battery, for example. Of course, all of this is irrelevant if you're not interested in using a kick device but fitting at least a fuse is a wise idea, IMHO. I originally wished for a 18500 version of this but with the benefit of hindsight (and the under 510 connection kick), I think that this may be the better option. Though a more compact/lighter/much cheaper version would be welcomed! I do think that at nearly $50 it is an expensive vaping device, especially for a clone. However, if you like the looks/style and want an alternative to a long tube mod, then I can thoroughly recommend this product. Just don't expect perfection. ;-) P.S. If it gets a bit scabby looking in time, due to daily use/abuse, there's always vinyl wrap to tart it up again, or some other type of coating.

Cheap Expands both in pocket size and belt length Some adjustment to belt tension
CONS
NOT Water Resistant (Not waterproof)
I wasn't expecting much from this, given the price and I'm glad that I didn't. Titling the product "Sports" is stretching it (poor pun) somewhat in that the bag material has no water resistance whatsoever. As a non-scientific test, I gave it a short 15-20 seconds dowsing in an electric shower, with the bag sections containing some toilet roll paper. One bag was virtually empty, the other expanded out, with the help of an empty container. I let the belt drip for approx. 20 minutes before examining the contents and discovered both sections were soaked inside. The intention here was to simulate a short sharp shower that might be experienced whilst on holiday, rather than some adventure sport activity. I suggest that any water sport activities are totally out of the equation and that sweat may also be an problem with any intensive activity. The pocket material has a neoprene look and feel, rather than different to what I imagined a "polyester" belt bag would be. Perhaps that's only the belt part. Maybe a waterproofing treatment such as TX-direct would help to provide some water resistance but I'd do a test again rather than trusting to luck. The plus points are the compact nature of the belt pockets, that expand to hold, say, a small folding bicycle toolkit or other multi-tool. For vapers, a small 18350 mod should fit in one pocket, with two spare batteries in the other - might even be able to squeeze in a Kato box mod (I'll try when it dries out), though I expect the weight will make it not suitable. If you wanted to use this as a money belt, then you'd be advised to enclose paper money in a waterproof/resistant inner container. Could be handy for carrying your hotel room key, when on holiday. I purchased this for another purpose, to replace a motorcycle jacket belt, so as long as the belt part holds together, then it should be fine for me. At least now I know not to put anything 'perishable' in the pockets. The expanding section of the belt, should help with my expanded waistline. :-|

Small Cheap
CONS
Marginally functional - see description Chain links are weak O-rings too soft
I bought two, along with other items. I tried using one with the screws in a newly arrived atty. Applying pressure when loosening a tight screw caused the screwdriver blade to slide up inside the handle. Not a good start! I notice that one of the chain links has been crushed over when it was closed over, during manufacturing. Don't be surprised to find your screwdriver has 'vanished' if you hang it from your keys. I suggest hanging this screwdriver from a stronger/existing keychain. The o-rings are presumably there to help stop the gadget unscrewing when getting bashed about the place. They are too soft and compress to easily, causing them to distort. They also fall off the gadget too easily - easy to loose.

Looks Size (lack of) Easy to fill Fun!
CONS
Non-removable/replaceable coil (see description) Taste with original coil/wick Drip tip condensation
This short review is being made a little ahead of when I'd like but due to the lack of other reviews, this will hopefully help other decide. First things first: this is different! If you want supposedly macho, big F-Off sized atties, then this is not for you - move along, nothing to see here. This really is designed for smaller eGo batteries and mods. It would be better if a cone shaped beauty ring that tapered inwards towards the clearomiser, was supplied. IMO, it would tidy up its looks for the most part. When carefully filled to the edge of the coil silicone cap, I managed to squeeze in over 2ml. YMMV Unsurprisingly, this clearomiser produces a warm vape compared to my usual bottom coil clearos. I haven't been impressed by the taste from the original coil/wick, though it does appear to be improving with use. I have found the 'sweet spot' to be around 10W on a Vamo in RMS mode. When I first received this clearo, I couldn't get it to work at all (likely user error), so I ended up stripping it down as much as I could. Being careful and with the help of tweezers and needle-nose pliers, I managed to straighten/realign the coil and wick. When this current juice is finished, I plan to replace the coil assembly with one from a new EVOD core SKU 1403601. This should drop the resistance down from 2.2 to 2Ohms - a future build will likely be 1.8Ohms, if it lasts that long. It is a missed opportunity that the coils aren't easily replaced, though for such a cheap product, how can one really complain? Perhaps a MKII is needed. :-)

Good build quality Great performance
CONS
Need a tapered beauty ring for an eGo battery No spares
This betters both a genuine Protank II v2 and clone Protank 2 (which both leak slightly). The 510 threads are a bit rough on my one but will probably smooth out with use. Filling can be done easily from the spout on a 10ml juice bottle, not needing a syringe. Sits well on a Mini Sticker clone and is usable with both a standard eGo 350mah & 650mah, without the need for the angle drip tip adapter. Due to the shape, a beauty ring that tapers at the top, rather than flaring out, should improve the appearance. Otherwise a straight one is not too bad, IMO. The double seal arrangement at both ends of the glass is unusual and appears to work well, though longevity if frequently dismantled for cleaning is unknown. It would be useful to have replacement glass and seals made available.
