Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
The Reo Grand is an aluminum box, with its hammered appearance and all the rounded edges, it offers a pleasant support, allows not to slip and avoids all fingerprints. Unless you put yourself as a "nag", scratches too will be almost invisible. The assembly is perfect.
The button "fire" appearance "push button" is perfectly stable and incorporates a locking function by rotating it on itself. It is practical and effective.
The weight may be a slight disadvantage of 165 gr with battery, but it is quickly forgotten as soon as you vape.
The 16mm origen dripper of diameter leaves despite its small diameter a sufficient place for the realization of a double coil. The machining of its stainless steel is irreproachable and its pine is brass. The studs are dug well and worked in the mass to offer a larger tank. Under the tray is laser-engraved the serial number, the name of the atomizer and the date of the batch. The top cap fits very well on its base and is very well maintained with a seal of quality, its look is refined with its fins on the top that make it very pretty ...

Vapelier's note regarding functional characteristics: 4.3 / 5
Reviewer's comments on functional features
It is a mechanical box so you will not have many functions, however its main asset is the bottom feeder. This box therefore includes, in addition to an 18650 battery (which should be chosen according to the assembly), a large bottle (6ml) which is supported by a window that is located on the hood of the box .
The pin is adjustable by means of a key awl and is drilled in the center, to obviously allow the liquid to go up to the plateau of the ato by pressing on the bottle.
The atomizer also has an adjustable pin in the center of the 510 connection through a screw identical to that of the box pin. The plateau is dug to leave a small place to a mini reserve of liquid. The pads are well spaced and each have 4 holes for the passage of the wire which becomes very easy to insert. To fix the thread you will have to use again the key awl to tighten the legs of the Kanthal
The tank with its top cap measures only 18mm and 26mm with the drip tip for 15gr (with Drip tip), a small size therefore, which gives an aesthetic comfort and an easy transport. The drip tip is Teflon, it has a wide opening and like the top of the top cap it has small fins that agree with this wonderfully
To access the location of the batteries, there is a sliding cover that attaches by magnetization, it is easy to use and ideally functional.

For this price range, that's where the rub, no box, just the clean packaging of the shop that sold you.

No instructions, no box, I always have a hard time understanding this ...

Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
I do not know of a product that is easier to master. You open the cover without accessories, insert your battery with the positive terminal up, and then unscrew the bottle that is supplied to fill and replace it.
For the atomizer no difficulty either, mounting is easily achieved with a large place on the board despite these 16mm diameter. Fixing the resistive wire is also very simple. The only difficulty lies in the use of the key awl to tighten your studs or adjust the pins (box and ato). Yes I know, I carry you when I speak of difficulty.
The use is not complicated at all, but it is necessary to get used to feed the assembly regularly during the vape and this is not always easy to do. Moreover the switch positioned on the top cap and its design, requires to have a certain support force, it is a constraint that can annoy some.
When blocking the box, it is very effective and easy.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
Overall, it is a very good product with a good quality, a setup meca with dripper bottom feeder that works perfectly well and is light in view of the box electro market.
The only constraints related to this setup is to get in the habit of feeding the assembly regularly and to have a fairly firm support for the switch.
This great Reo remains a rare product in bottom feeder and Origen dripper in 16mm is absolutely wonderful with a restitution of flavors that is fabulously respected.
