    I received mine today. I really wanted to hate it. It's aluminum. It's light. It feels cheap. But it hits really, really well, as well as the China GG and K-100. Better than any of the many Sigeleis I have. I think the key here is that it is brass from the 510 pin all the way to the switch. No chrome plating, no steel in the way. The spring and button feel really nice. It has a floating center pin. The threads aren't all that bad. Damn, now I have to keep it.

    BT804 Kayfake From Beautiful...china clone, clone on clone but the juice is not. Genny joose from buckysbargainvaping. I reallly like the button. It's soft. doesn't fire when setting it down. The throw could be shorter I guess but as soft as it is, it's not an issue for me. All aluminum except the bottom button and top post. A whole lot lighter than mu Segelie 19. Hcigar makes it. They advertise an all brass version on their site and it certainly looks all brass. One other thing I like and that is the texture. Provides a nice grip.
    Kemosabe, michliu and terry w like this.
    I have umpteen devices with some kind of clearo, carto or rba on them ready to vape and more on the way. Is that too many?
    More than 1 year no terbaccy.

    I was thinking the same thing about the aluminum - I've had a few aluminum mods...
    But it is an excellent conductor - great in a mech mod.
    Is the Center Tube brass??
    It looks really nice - thanks for the nice pics.

    I'd love to find the all brass version for sale somewhere...

    I see the Private too - Stainless steel model listed on Hcigar's website.

    4800 mah...that's fake! Fastech has some great batteries. It's a shame they are offering this one in the kit. Must be cause they can't sell them straight. They had vamo kits with the cgr18650ch before. One could only hope. Not a bad deal with the free, faster shipping and charger. I wouldn't want that battery in a mechanical mod though.

    I've never been more sceptical and more interested than with this clone, o I'm hoping they sell it individually
