I don't think they even went that far. It looks like for the video, they just printed a paper label and stuck it over the existing one. It's even peeling in the corners where they probably used the crappiest glue stick.

Yes, it looked like that to me too.
Kickstarter are not very good at weeding out these resale projects, although there can be a muddy distinction sometimes.
Hopefully the backers get what they were promised in any case.  Too often these low effort campaigns just take the money and ghost the backers.

The Bakon looks semi decent as its using C210 cartridge which has really low thermal mass. But either they are using the battery voltage directly, or using a low power boost converter, as some reviews say slow and ~12W output power.

KSger C210 + 18V tool battery is superior, but bulkier.

If you did one where you pulled ~9A from the 18650 you'd get a solid 30W out, which on a C210 is quite good. But, you'd have to be sure people didn't put some cheap cell in there that can't handle the load. And some really good battery contacts.

the secret is in the octagon or non round shape

I watched the video, and all I heard was "something something buzz words."

Ninja edit - Also witnessed someone burning text into wood .. Hrmm, maybe I'll purchase this iron, just to burn the memories of watching this, out of my brain.    \o/
