    Well, it looks like a mod, and it's blue.

    79 grams without battery
    135 with

    It's mostly plastic. The battery cover pulls off with captive (covered in plastic) magnets and friction, seems decent.

    The menu is unlike a normal Seigelei, but it seems usable, no instructions needed.

    It seems nice, time will tell though.

    It's still kicking. One odd feature though, I kind of like it:

    When the battery gets low, vapor productions slows, but if you look at the screen, it shows you what wattage it's firing at. For me, I have it set at 20 watts, but at the end, you'll see it fire at 17, the 13, etc. Eventually the screen flashes and battery bar flashes, no more juice.

    I think it's kind of nice if you are driving and charging while vaping, you can see it and say, "Okay, gotta wait 3-4 more minutes for the next hit", etc.

    It's hit the ground (gravel/sand) a couple of times already, 510 connector is secure still. Paint is holding up so far also, but hey, it's only a week of it being in hell (in my hands).

    I still like it.

    Have you tried a SS build, running in power mode?
    When I first put the atty on, or turn it off/on, it reads the correct ohms at .65
    As soon as I fire it it jumps to .8, and stays there.
    I know SS will rise as it's heated, but the E1 stays at the upper ohm until turned off.
    Haven't had a chance to try a Ka1 build in it yet.

    Nah, I only have Nickel and Kanthal here and I always run in power mode.

    Just tried a Kanthal build...ohms read correctly and stay put.
    It's not a bad mod for $25.

    @puffon That's what I was thinking, it's actually pretty decent for the price. I'm using it secondary all day vape and driving vape. I'm pretty happy with it.
