    Ok lets cut to the chase and see what I have to say about this mod after 3 days of usage.

    My verdict:

    I was absolutely blown away when I opened the box. I stared at it for a few minutes, afraid to pick it up and mess the beautifully polished body.

    After unboxing it and putting in my 2 x 21700 batteries. Then I spend some time getting to know the mod's functions. As usual 5 clicks for the on and off function. 3 clicks to change modes - from Standard to TC then Function (Not sure what it is for). So that's pretty straight forwardly simple.

    I used my OFRF Gear RTA (which was a gift from @lesvaches). The mod will ask if it's a new or old coil, I had no idea of which button to press as there's no indication of which is - and which is +. That's a con as you want to choose the right answer if it's a new coil. Thing is that also if you choose new coil, it auto-adjusts the wattage. Also another con for me as I don't want the mod to automatically assume said wattage for my RTA and just keep it as I set it. So best answer if you don't want anything changed, just say no to keep the old coil settings and it will stay the same.

    Ok so you want to hear something good about this mod. Well here's a laugh. I nearly choked on my vape as soon as I pressed the fire button. Damn, that thing is much more powerful than your grandma's voodoo.

    More pros - I love the resin fire button. It's beautiful, it's simply stunning and feels great too. The body is very shiny, like @StompieZA has mentioned it's a finger print magnet but it's not a big issue, easy to polish off. Wax on, wax off, as they say.

    Last of all, you swear the battery life would be pretty much the same as across all mods. Not in this case. I had 2 x 21700 batteries in and was very surprised to find that I went well into day 3 without the need to charge anything. Sure, having a low wattage helps but compared to my Pico 21700, you can't even really compare as the charge lasts much longer in miles. A single 21700 Pico battery lasts me at least a full day before I need to recharge it. It's AMAZING!!!

    Oh by the way, this mod design is beyond words to describe how I feel about it - it's more than awesome, more than amazing. It feels strong and sturdy. Granted I've only had it for a couple of days so I think I need a full month before I can speculate on the quality of it, which I will give feedback in a month's time. But it's quite powerful and gentle enough to handle a small RTA. I'm definitely blown away by the Voopoo X-217 mod.

    Thank you Thea @VOOPOO for such a awesome mod...

    Nice review.

    Just a note. The Omni 4.0 is supposed to have a 0.001s fire speed so that would have to be the fastest?

    I just copied and pasted specs from the website so I really don't know in terms of speed faster than light unless I'm entering a wormhole teleporting through a space time continuum :D

    :rofl:

    Nice Review!!

    The function is the settings menu. When on function, hold in the plus and minus together and you will enter the menu option where you can do the following:

    -Switch off the LED strip or change the colors
    -Set date and time for the watch
    -Change the background pictures
    -Change the brightness of the screen
    and some more...

    You can also change the Clock type/look. When the clock comes up after not using the mod for around 30 seconds, use the plus or minus buttons to scroll through different clocks.

    Thanks @StompieZA

    I had to do a bit more research as your review said you could turn the leds off. Then that's when I discovered another menu of stuff.

    Turned my leds off as I wanted to see how long this time my batteries will last.
