CONS
510 connector!
Arrived today, so only tested it out. Is big but feels so comfortable in the hand. Standing on end on my computer desk as I type and have no fears that it may topple over, like say my Vamo could. Does eat batteries, but we knew that anyway and that is being addressed on 16th September. You don't buy a Porsche then complain about fuel consumption! Tried several atty's on it & all worked perfectly, apart from this one sku 1699800. Had this built and ready to go with a stainless steel wick, just so I could push the T5 a bit. This Kayfun goes onto everything I have with no problem. On the T5, the threading was really tight, so much so that I didn't want to force it, so adjusted the T5 510 connector so it would fire. Haven't got to the bottom of why yet, but could be something to watch out for, time will tell. Very very happy. Glad I stopped umming and aahing and purchased. If you are not sure whether to buy or not, JFDI.

Finish Mixture of parts
Left this review for two month's simply because the finish started to wear so quickly, wanted to see how bad it got. Firstly this performs brilliantly and has worked faultlessly thus far. Within a few days the black finish started to come off, notice I didn't say 'wear off'. As it was new and shiny I kept it indoors, always on something soft when not in my hand, but the black just started to disappear where my hands touched it, but only on the two battery tube sections. Kinda cool after a few weeks, looked like a grizzled old vaping device, made me look like an old pro vaper, lol. Now, two months later the bottom tube section seems to be wearing through the shiny steel surface to another brass coloured looking metal. The middle section seems solid silver metal. The main body is still the original shiny black, no wear on the finish at all. It almost seems like it's been made from three completely different materials. In hindsight I should have gone for the plain stainless steel.

Battery door is a little flimsy, but I'm not taking the charger on tank manoeuvres, and it looks good.
Couldn't wait for this to come. Ordered after reading reviews here, then researching online. I hoped it lived up to its hype but it didn't, it surpassed it. Bought to replace my very basic 18650 charger, which took 12 hours to charge Panasonic 3400mAh. Ripped open box and tried it with two of aforementioned batteries. 3.5 hours later fully charged, both to 4.21v. Obviously a better quality charge as well as my mech mod fired harder straight away. Wondered if it would charge my 18350 batteries using a conductive spacer, but couldn't locate such a thing anywhere, so I made some, tested their resistance and tried it. Worked like a charm, 800mAh 18350 charged in less than an hour, charger didn't melt, blow up or catch fire, and I'm still alive. Products like this make me want to kiss Fasttech.

I could never make coils that are all snugged up next to each other, so much pulsing and tweezing, think that's a word, was needed. I can now, after a few practise runs.
