Looks really nice, love the small form factor.
The locking ring was extremely tight when I got it. Once I freed it, and locked it again, it did the same thing. Had to oil it to get it to easily lock and unlock. Half a star for this issue.
The threads are a little squeaky, but that's not a huge deal. Half a star for this as well.
Furthermore, only some of my attys screw into it. My RSST and IGO-W are fine, but my Hcigar KF3.1 clone will only screw in about 3/4 of a turn before binding. AGA-T2 does attach, but the threads feel really tight, close to stripping. Both the KF and AGA screw into all my other mods (Smok Natural, Nemesis clone, eVic and 134) without any problems. Full star off for this.

First off: be warned. Contrary to the product description, THIS MOD DOES NOT WORK WITH FLAT-TOP 18350s. Even telescoped down to its shortest length, the flat top battery rattles around inside the mod with a fair amount "play." I would assume it would be no problem kicked, although I haven't tested. Button top batteries might or might not work.
Also, couldn't figured out how to engage the button lock. Finally figured out that the button lock (the gold colored rim around the button) was thread locked tighter than a drum. Disassembled and used light machine oil, now works perfectly. All of the other threads were squealing and fighting me, so I applied a light amount of oil and wiped off the excess and now they work fine.
Overall: what more do you want? It's a $40 Chinese clone. Considering what you are paying for it, the quality is superb. There's one moving part to fail, and the minor flaws out of the box can be fixed by disassembling it and oiling it.
EV cigs shipped the same day I ordered, package arrived the next day well packaged and intact. The product page needs to make clear that flat top 18350's do not work in this mod, and flat top 18350s do not need to be an option when building a package with it.
