And that is overwhelmingly the best thing I can say about it. It is really, really cool. It is black from top to bottom with the exception of a ring of gold around the switch mechanism and the gold button at the bottom with a blue stone set in the center. I'm fairly certain that the black is some sort of anodized effect or paint but i've banged it around a bit and it doesn't seem to chip or scratch easily. This mod is a little bit blingier than anything else I own, but the overall look of it is more Cadillac blingy than it is Paris Hilton pink swarovski-encrusted Juicy Couture blingy. If that makes any sense at all.
From a design standpoint, it's pretty solid. It has just as many options for use as the Nemesis, but seems to be far less fidgety. It's a pretty easy device to get set up. It comes with two different center tubes and can accommodate anything from a single 18350 battery all the way up to a kicked 18650 battery. In the mode I've got it in now, it's just a straight 18650 (which is how I'm running all of my mech mods).
As I've found with my five mech mods I have now, it is always wise to start building from the top down. Get your atomizer snugged onto the top cap before screwing that top cap onto the mod's middle sections, then build down toward the bottom. This is true of this Nzonic clone with one exception. The junction of where the middle long tube screws into the logo tube below it can be a little wobbly and seems to work best when it is snugged all the way down to the bottom. So I basically build the top half (atomizer, top cap, then top ribbed section). Then I build the bottom half (switch assembly into logo tube into telescoping center tube). THEN I put the top half onto the telescoping center tube and snug it all up tight using the top half instead of the bottom. This yields a completely snug device that doesn't rattle or shift in my hand.
The reason for that shifting is that the metal is fairly thin and the threading isn't the world's best. Compared to the full copper Caravela I also just bought, this thing feels downright cheap. Compared to the Smok Magneto (that is still sitting waiting for a review) this feels like a very solid, expensive device.
Performance-wise, it works pretty well. The switch is magnetic and seems to work a bit better than the switch on the Magneto, but it's similar in design. The one thing I don't like about both of those switches is the cheap sounding crunch that I get out of them. This switch is smooth and feels nice, but is a little bit crunchy sounding. That is far from a reason not to buy it though. With the same fully charged battery and atomizer on top, this mod does not hit as hard as the Caravela I just reviewed. But I mean, let's be fair about that. A solid copper mod is about as good as it will ever get without using a solid sterling silver device (which seems unlikely to come out any time soon.) Compared to the Magneto, it hits a little harder, but not quite as hard as the Nemesis clone I have. But it's still a good device and I don't think the voltage drop is considerable enough to consider that a real issue.
In the end, I'm glad this EHPro NZonic clone is in my lineup. I do like it and will use it as a pretty solid daily device. I think it is likely that my Magneto won't get much use after buying this one. But then again, variety is the spice of life. And the reason that I buy clones is because I can get 5 or 6 very different mods for the same cost of one original device. I know there are guys out there that will literally hate me for that. But variety is a big deal for me. In flavors and devices. And the argument of originals vs. clones is one for another day.
