The HCigar Kraken (Vicious Ant Clone) is a high quality genesis-style Rebuildable Atomizer that has an adjustable air flow control and will allow you to build single or dual coils.
Rebuildable Atomizers are for the vaping enthusiast and will allow you to build your own coil and wicking system.
The Kraken features a 2.5mL glass tank, a laser-etched engraved Stainless Steel sleeve with cut-out windows & two holes which can be used to build a U-Wick.

This clone has a few minor issues. The first step is to to completely disassemble and apply light machine oil to the moving parts before doing anything else. Unfortunately one of the post screws in one of the terminal posts was locked in so tight the supplied screwdriver stripped the screw.
Several of the tapped holes for set screws in the deck also had remnant metal left in them from maching. A dental pick and a small file took care of these.
There are 2 holes tapped for set screws, plus one untapped hole. Annoyingly, the atomizer only came with one set screw to plug the tapped holes. This means that by default, you either have to run dual coil and plug the two open holes with wicks, or run single coil with one hole left completely open. This causes leaks with juices that are 50/50 or thinner, but the 75% VG and above liquids are viscous enough to not to leak much.
Overall 3/5 for quality, 4/5 for value if you take a little time to fix the minor issues before you start. For a $35 Chinese clone, the quality is exceptional. It makes a great intro to genesis RBAs for newbies that want to play around but don't want to drop the dosh on the real thing.

I have yet to be disappointed with any HCigar brand device I have purchased. Some companies put more time into machining and quality control than others. HCigar is one of those companies, regardless of where they are based. If you like high-end devices, and you are on a budget, you can't go wrong with HCigar.
The KRAKEN can be made to fill a room with vapor, it's fun experimenting with different builds. I'm currently running a "non-cloud chaser/non-chain vapor" build at .9 ohms with cotton, and the flavor reproduction is amazing.
Thanks again EVC!
