It is stretchy therefore it can accommodate 1x 18650 battery (protected or unprotected) or 2x 18350 batteries. Not the best for 2x 18350 as one might pop out though.

PROS
- Good stainless steel "legs" rigidity. - Ceramic = heat resistant tip = accurate SKU title ;) - Thick ceramic = more resistant to squeezing pressure.
CONS
- Thick and large ceramic tip (not an absolute cons point : depend for what it is used for) = less versatility with every coil sizes.
Perfect to squeeze while torching unmounted coils. When heating mounted coils to squeeze them with this tweezers, be careful because the legs of a kanthal or nichrome coil is turning more and more fragile when its temperature is rising (when resistance turns light red or orange to the yellow point). Ceramic is a bit too thick to manipulate a large range of resistive wire diameters and coils size. I don't have the pointy tip tweezer but they are probably more versatile. Thick ceramic is sometime a problem to squeeze macro coils without touching and deforming its legs (when configured on opposite sides) As it is a bit pricey, if someone wants to spare some money, it may be a good idea to buy one tip type with a replacement of the other type. Unmount one tip type to use the best tip for your coils size if you are making both macro and micro coils. Better to buy both in my opinion.

PROS
- Very good overall quality. - Nice locking button mechanism. - Stiff button that allows the mod to tailstand without firing (at least with an heavy dripper like the Quasar).
CONS
- Heavy. - Quite tall in 18650 configuration. - Burrs on the edge of CNC engravings that need to be polished.
Better overall quality than expected. All threadings machining are weel done but not excellent. CNC engraving is quite deep but not as much as the original. Edges of CNC engravings need to be (brushed and) polished. Long adjustable screw to the battery size. With flat top 18650 battery, this allows to unscrew the screw more than needed to unscrew the top and bottom parts to adjust it better and show a bit more of the engravings. This also allows a perfect alignment of the logo of the atty to the central engravings of the mod. Or alternatively a perfect alignment of the airflow hole of the atty with the mod vent holes.

PROS
- Small chamber. - 3mm lip above the plots base. - Excellent overall finish quality.
CONS
- Plots holes are not perfectly aligned but misalignment is small. - Plots holes could have been bigger (easy to redrill).
I bought two of this one, both with the same flawless finish, excellent quality for the price. Very pleased. The brass sleeve is nice and clean. The bigger air holes are 2.5mm, smaller ones seem to be 1.1mm. I bought a Yeahsmo crown (4 times the price of this FT SKU) several weeks ago, with 3 different sleeves that have a lot of huge sanding marks in the inner side. The base was so damaged that it was unusable. I asked for a replacement. This one is much better in term of quality finish. I insist.
