My only 'gotcha' would be having to use protected cells or otherwise stressing the batteries from running them under voltage. IME 18350's sure don't give you a lot of run time...
Let us know the good the bad and the ugly.
UPDATE: The tiny amount of battery wobble in the tube was driving me crazy so i swapped out the spring with one of my Silver bullet replacement hot springs. Now you can shake it hard and its rock solid. The new spring is copper or brass i think so better conductivity too. Threads have really improved after 10 or so mins of back and forth breaking them in and a tiny drop of Rem Oil. I can recommend this mod 100% but be warned the spring it comes with isn't the best. With the regular spring and an AW IMR 18350 the battery will rattle a bit. For 10 bucks this probably wouldn't bother most people but it was bugging me. If you get this mod get a better spring and your batteries wont rattle even the slightest bit. See the link at the bottom for the spring i put in it now.
With the new spring Im showing 3.63-3.7 volts off of a fresh AW IMR 18350 under load. Compared to my Atmizoo roller at 3.97-4.10 volts under load i find this very respectable for 10 bucks.
Great mod for someone on a tight budget looking for something tiny and pocket worthy.
A person gets a pretty good "feel" for when an 18350 is starting to get low. For me, the vape changes noticeably. I take the battery out, check it with a multi-meter and sure enough...time to swap batteries.
Darn...too bad this wouldn't work with an 18350 in it
AltSmoke.com - The Kick by Evolv
only thing I found was this for any kind of IMR protection...but I think it's only for shorts, not "low voltage" cutoff...I sent them an email
Batteries : Vape Safe Mod Fuse 2
How much "space" between the battery and spring do you think there is?
Nice...the kick2...but will it fit?
The kick will not fit without an extensions tube of some kind. not sure if they make one for this mod or not. An 18350 fits just fine mine just wiggled a little bit and im super picky so it bugged me. Out of the box and 18350 will work with this.
I find vapor production drops off significantly when the battery hits about 3-3.2 volts. When u feel it getting low and just replace the battery. IMRS are safe as long as you don't drain them below 2.5-2.6volts. To go all the way to 2.5 volts you would have to vape a good while getting pretty much no vapor lol. I suppose it could happen if your using super super LR but I wouldn't worry much about it.
Im vaping this at work right now and I love the size of it. Feels good in the hand and Im not worried about messing it up as its only $10.
Im using a kanger protank mini and it looks awesome. Nice tight fit. very good Vapor and throat hit using the 1.8Ohm coils.
^ battery rattle - bet it's cuz the tube is excessively wide - just like the Indulgence.
BOOM!!! Got it in!
This is the little guy sitting right next to my VAVO V3 w/ 18650 battery in it, the Vamo V3 can also run as a "mini" with a 18350 but I like being able to vape for 2x days on one charge
Tiny tiny...can almost palm this little monster
Head is a CE6 (serviceable) from fasttech, reads 2.7Ω on the Vamo with a 2.8Ω advertisement
Pleasantly pleased with this teeny mechanical mod
