Was itching to vape on something different weeks ago so I picked up the Aspire Archon in black with yellow trim at my local B&M. Granted I paid more than online but I just wanted something new to play with right then and there. I'm amazed how well the mod actually functions considering it's made by Aspire (I remember a lot of finicky, bothersome aspire products in the past). I can't speak about TC (never really messed with TC much on any mod) but wattage mode is great. My main gripe is the material. Feels like a cheap plastic toy, in fact I vaguely remember a toy from my childhood that had the exact same finish. Lightweight gear is good, but when it's too light it gives the impression the mod/setup has no substance and is of cheap value/quality. Function wise it gets a definite pass,but aesthetics/feeling it fails pretty hard. Within weeks this will get tossed in my Big Mod Bin Graveyard methinks.
