So, first off, I have the original SS 18350 version of this mod, and really like it. The only problem I had with it, is that I'm a chain vaper kind of guy, and an 18350 just doesn't cut it for very long. I LOVE telescoping mods, so when I saw this, I had to have it and preordered.
3 things about this mod...
1. Looks great! I love the black locking and AFC rings (not actually AFC, just venting for the battery which is too bad) which I think are a nice touch to an otherwise plain mod.
2. The top cap is different than the original clone, and that is a good thing. These grooves are slightly deeper, improving air flow, and they look pretty cool.
3. In 18650 mode, there is quite a bit of play in the center tube leading to a bit of rattle. But, this is easily fixed by removing the center tube and putting it back in upside down. Now, this does eliminate the telescoping feature, but the rattle is gone, and with an 18650 this thing works great all day long.
