Evolv kick 2?
« on: July 28, 2013, 06:16:28 PM »
I heard someone mention yesterday supposedly a Kick 2 will be coming out and the claim was up to 15watts and they changed the spring to the same spring the sigelei kick uses (IIRC he said 2 of them actually)... but I cannot remember where he claimed to see it.

Anyone see anything about this?

Great specification, the current atty resistance 1.3 to 3.0 is not ideal.
And it has two machine guns sitting on the top!

Nice piece of work on Evolve's part, a real winner.

And so there was a mass exodus from the Naughty Corner to Fields of Vapor and bank accounts and wallets everywhere screamed in fear, pain and despair.  :( ::)

I'm just upset that I just found the sigelei kick and a week later I hear about this... just when I thought I got away cheap ;)

But really this will be awesome for sub ohm coils... guess I will be doing sub ohm genny builds sooner than later

I've just rebuilt the DID D20 the other day, with a 3/4 wrap of 28awg Kanthal A1 for a resistance of 0.9 ohms...  This is lower than I normally go on the Gennies, but the DIDs are normally so very polite and well behaved in character but now this one is performing better than ever...!!!   :)

And its still not hitting the greater heights of 20watts  ::)
You would think that they must see us building sub ohm coils and think....oh, hang on,  they want 20 watt vaping....sort it!  w:)w

I understand the desire for 20 watts but it is one of those "how many people really use and want this?"

It can do coils down to .5 Ohms, but it will run them less than battery voltage since the limit is 15 Watts.  For example, it would run a .7 Ohm coil at 15W which would be 3.24 Volts.  You would get better performance with no Kick in there.

I'm sure getting a 15 Watt output out of such a small device took some doing on Evolve's part.  I'd be surprised to see it go higher than that any time soon.  Power output takes circuit board space which is a high premium for the Kick.

Because the circuit board is so small and there's little area for heat dissipation, running the Kick at its limit may become a reliability issue.  Just have to see how they hold up when people start using them.

There's advantages to higher power output even if you don't use it.  It provides better efficiency and reliability since the electronics don't have to work as hard to provide the output you do ask for.
