Didn't expect it to be so tiny for 50 watts, take a look at it beside my Sigelei 100 watt:
7516

Looks good. How does it perform? Any cosmetic issues? Does it have a spring loaded/floating 510 connection?

I too am interested in hearing how it performs. Size is nice.

Generally the thing you are giving up with the size is the battery capacity. How long is the little guy lasting?

At the same 30 watts I use on the Sig, it is about half on the nose. Heavy use I need to charge it daily, my Sig every 2 days. I try to just use it just for going out though, even with my Fogger on it, it dissapears in my shirt pocket!
Haven't noticed some of the issues others have... resistance reading is dead on, and was firing at the 30 watts I set it at down to almost 30% before I swapped the battery. Am going to test more on that. Don't like the built-in rapid
charger, and battery isn't easy to get out, but I do anyways. Overall for 59can it's a nice little pocket rocket.
Edit: dam, just noticed I passed the 28th of Jan... my one year anniversary of being smoke free!

Got the M50 down to almost 20% battery, and it was still firing 30 watts. Passed the final test for me! Find one cheap, it works.

Was going to pick one up, but the battery swapping is to much of a pain for me, hate Allen key screws! Grabbed an iPV mini 2, bat swaps take under 30 secs.

I have dozens of precision tools, have a mini hex driver, I can change the screws in a couple of minutes. Well the whole battery change operation.
Just ordered a Sig 100+ black to go with my Sig 100 silver. And a 2nd Fogger Big, but in black to go on my black Sig Big. Should be smexy!

So glad I ordered another Sig. The M50 is dead. No reverse polarity protection. Can't believe a modern mod doesn't have that. It's in the garbage can now....

Contact Smoktech, they stated on their facebook page it does have reverse polarity protection, might end up with a new 65 watt upgraded one, never know.

Dam, really? Well I kept the thing, so guess I'll try to contact them.

Good luck. I hope you have better success with them than I did. I had tried contacting them with a defective product a few months ago. Sent upwards of 5 e-mails to them with zero response to any of them.

Yeah, I tried, haven't got shiite back yet. My Sig 100+ on the other hand is on it's way. Next mini will be from Sig too of course....
