Mech lover's El Diablo Satan.

Let's start by debunking the crap. El Diablo's Gilberto did not copy the Noisy Cricket. The Satan is essentially a series configuration of the Abbadon. The Cricket copied the Abbadon. That's where all similarities end.

This is a great series mech box - absolutely wonderful. The machining is top notch. The threading is excellent. It took me a half day to get the lock button function working right - you should not overtyighten - but once you get it it's a very nice little addition. I can lock my button and carry my box around. Not that i have to. The battery sled is slick. It's delrin and it slides in and out without issue. Very easy to remove the batteries. On my piglet i have to loosen the screws to remove the battery (so I need a screwdriver) - on this I need no tools whatsoever. Now I got the black Satan - it is what the store had - but the SS looks stunning. That said it is well anodized. The finish looks like it will hold up well.

So is it a hybrid connection like the Cricket? No. You have no issues with the connection. It's all copper top and bottom and hits like a ten ton truck. All my attys fit flawlessly. So how is the button? It's a delrin button encased in brass with a copper contact. It is well insulated and never gets hot - I've been using a .4 ohm build with zero issues.

So how much is it you ask? This is the cheapest authentic Phillipine mech I own by far. I paid 100 Canadian for a brand new Satan. It's a steal.

How does it stack up to other series mechs? I have a number of series mechs. I think this one could become my favorite. I no longer use my Noisy Crickets at all. In fact Gently has one of mine. This is ten times better than a Cricket. I love my VCP (vapercloudz piglet). However this is smaller and much much lightrer. The VCP is a heavy bugger. My Hannya and Underground are also light but this is still smaller and lighter.

Would I buy another Satan if something happened to this one? In a New York minute, yes.

That's an important distinction to make. Fatboy, you should respect El Diablo's life choices!
