    If the kick performs at all like my Darwin, I will definitely pick one up. NebulaBrot, that was a great write up and explanation of how the variable wattage control works in the Darwin/Kick.

    "I emailed Jay and suggested he consider having some tubes cut to fit the 18650 IMR with The Kick - even if only a few to see if people want them. It cannot have the resistor - needs to be an unregulated device. I do not know if he is considering having some cut that way or not. I'd probably get it."

    Great suggestion! I'd pre-order that!

    Im saying the width of the headcap hole is wide enough to fit an 18mm battery in it, but it wont let the threads close but the kick will actually fit in the hole. If some smaller not so wide threads or thinner metal was used or some other mechanism was used to close it. It COULD be possible. But anything is possible.

    Someone did modify an 18 size Helix tube and used it in a helix with 26 series batt but that would be at your own risk. It is designed to be used as I described in above posts.

    As luck had it, I was able to order a Kick today from the first batch at Nhaler and followed it up with an order from Super T for some AW 18500 and another TR003 charger. Looking forward to using it with the GLV XL Mini! I've thought about a Provari for a bit but I just love the way the GLV's feel in my hand. This should be the perfect solution. Now where is that mailman........

    I can't wait to see a feedback on how it performs brodie.

    PS : seeing the kick working with a supermini : just a fantasy?

    Well it figures, kick came in the mail today.....but the batteries are a day behind.

    I was unsure about the purple IMR from Nhaler so I opted for AW IMR from Super T. Hopefully they will be in tomorrow. Dry fit of the Kick in the GLV XL Mini is perfect with respect to diameter. Hopefully I can try it out tomorrow!

    Alright. It's confirmed. The Kick works great with the GLV Mini XL.

    Not that there were any doubts but I figured I would follow up here. Everything fits well. No slop or rattles when you shake it and it works as expected. I confirmed with an in line 510 connection volt meter that the kick is working as planned. Looking forward to this :-)

    I'll post again later today just to confirm that the voltage (wattage) held steady over the battery discharge.

    I very much like the GLV form factor. I knew the kick would function well in the GLV unregulated device. I just want to be able to use a larger 18650 in it before I plunk down the coin for another tube device. I hope Jay decides to cut tubes to fit the kick with the IMR 18650. I would love to bring GLV back into my collection but I only use Power Regulated technology now (most consistent vaping I have found and I have tried most). I already have three other tube devices I can use the Kick in but those only accommodate the kick and 18490/500. I WILL have one that will fit the kick with 18650 (several device manufacturers are designing longer tubes and/or extensions). I would prefer the GLV - just need the longer tube. Jay - how about it?? 17 more MMs?

    I stopped in and chatted with Jay yesterday about the Kick. I think he has been so busy with GLV that he hasn't kept in the loop with the discussions. I plan to take it over this weekend and let him play with it. I'll make sure to bug him anout the longer tubes.

    Any news about what NebulBro discussed regarding tubing for the GLV that could accomadate the Kick.
    I want to understand from what I read, does the Body of the XL Mini (wide enough) to accomadate the kick with the regular GLV non-resistant Cap Head?
