I have some batterys that just come on when moved, no loud noises, no wind, just pick them up. Some switches are more sinative than others. I only take the ones that work correctly with me to the Casinos or my atomizers get burned up. I can sometimes get them to stop doing it, but its hard to explain. I wiggle somthing inside the battery untill it quits doing it with a unfolded paper clip.
actions speak louder than words, do a iittle everyday to save our PV's

i haven't been out to a bar with it yet, but i've had it sitting on my desk while playing Half Life 2, and loudly.
also blared some music and held it to the speakers and it didn't set it off. i moved it down by my sub and nothing either.
It's definitely not noise in general, it's anything that applies the right amount of pressure to the switch. My battery was strobing to the drumbeat last night, maybe even the bass, but the place I was at has terrible acoustics and the band playing was this loud-as-hell surf band.
All I know is my EVO has been demoted to house duty only, my pen goes on the road. I think it will work out better that way, anyhow, considering cart size and need for topping off/maintenance.
I can't use the evo with official evo batteries in my car. I have a battery that has a stiff switch, which I only use for dripping. That's the one I use when I'm on the road.
Once I get another e-cig, that'll be my car companion and I'll use the EVO when the bigger cig isn't convenient.
Sealed enclosures usually have higher power handling and smoother response than ported cabs, but they do not have the low response capabilities of ported enclosures and require more power from amp and speaker. Sealed enclosures tend to roll off (lose output power) below 60hertz whereas a single port cab can highlight a certain frequency according to the volume of the port and the size of the cab. This gives the speaker and cab a wider range and covers down to 40hertz, even lower if required if you use 'high order' enclosures with multiple ports. My designs aimed for an even percieved response across as wide a frequency range as possible. If you're into cab design/building, grab a freeware program called WinISD from LinearTeam You can experiment with it to design cabs or check compatibility of drivers before you spend lots of money buying them. All you need are the Thiele Small parameters for the driver which should be available on the manufacturer's spec sheet.
i haven't left my house this weekend, hehe, but on a personal note i'm going to the movies later, so i'll take it with me in the car. i don't have a loud stereo, but i have a tiny, noisy Acura Integra. i'll try with the windows and the sunroof and see if i can activate my new Pilot batteries.
i'll have my EVO by monday, so i'll try with those too in a few days and see if i get the same results as the others with their EVO.
