    I finally broke down and bought one and so far loving it. I was just curious how many out there have one, love it or hate it, it's definitely not a for everyone mod. There are somethings I wish were different but not horribly so, especially at the price point.

    I had one demoed for me at a vape store and it looked really really impressive. Ive got too many mods though and I can’t justify a new one till one of my current ones dies on me

    I really like mine though I only run it in VV mode with a TFV8. It's comfortable in the hand and I like that it's a solid lump of metal.

    I’ve been considering one for a while, and finally got around to getting one during a Christmas sale since it was only $25 and change. Been running it in unregulated series mode and have been pleased with the performance. Love the form factor – very compact and comfortable. Biggest dislikes so far has been the battery door and 510. The door is fussy to get seated properly (although it is getting better with use); the 510 does not have enough travel for some attys to sit flush. But considering the price and performance, neither are dealbreakers.

    The door really takes some getting used for sure. For attys, I've only ran my Twisted Messes on it and it will not sit flush, has about a 1/16" gap. However, it has more of a gap on my SMOK mod, the TM has a long pin for hybrid use and since I love the SMPL, I'm not gonna fuss, lol.

    My favorite part is the lack of a screen. It's great not having a screen lighting up at night bugging me and/or sucking power. Then also not having to worry about a display dying, especially if I drop it. I bought since I found it so cheap as well and thought why not, have been surprised at how much I really do like it. Has me wanting a Tesla invader 3 now I think.

    I agree about the screen. However, I would have liked if they put the indicator LED below the fire button rather than behind it – it can be hard to see in bright light. In terms of attys, the Druga sits nearly flush as does the Wismec Neutron. I use the Neutron the most with this since the neutral post makes it easy to get a build that works great in series unreg mode.

    reliable? there's not much to go wrong compared to most.
    the battery door/slider was quite stiff for the first few changes but has eased up. had no issues with tanks/RDAs etc not sitting flush on the 510. here it is with a dead rabbit on top (what a strange food chain...)
    looks a bit gold for some reason but both are silver

    Mines had a three very hard drops from waist height on concrete and apart from some small nicks it's working fine. Though it very occasionally goes dead, but a re-seat of the battery cap resolves this every time. The lesson being don't drop your mod.
    The simplicity solidness and cheapness are the factors I like about it, I dial in a sweet spot and that's it no fiddling about.
    I would like it if the internals were user accessible, but it appears to be a sealed unit.

    I am vaping on mine as I type this with my OBS Engine on top in parallel mode and love the vape.
    I think I am set on getting the cricket ll-22 so I can run my 22mm rda's on it.

    I have 2 of them. One at home and one in my summerhouse. I love them. I mostly use them with the RDA's (Goon, Tsunami).

    Looks like Wismec is updating the Noisy Cricket II with the Luxotic NC. I'm not a fan of the looks (really don't care much for resin) but the specs are very appealing: dual 18650/20700 and can switch from parallel to serial by flipping a switch on the top rather than have to flip over the plate. The battery door also looks to be a much better design than the NC.

    Been seeing prices for pre-orders on China sites for the mod only at around $46; full kit is about $66. Full kit has the Guillotine atty.

    I am looking for a resin mod,don't care for that color though. If it works as good as the II-25 it should be an excellent device and with 2X700 batteries are a plus.

    The Luxotic is a bit gaudy and I hate that top switch, the functionality is cool but the placing....urrghh.
