thinblueline36, John, thank you for your answers. Your device seems just perfect for me. Everything what I need and nothing extra. One of the most inspiring things - simple analog adjustment. No digital "exersises": push 5 times, then jump twice, then wait 5 seconds etc... When come back home I sure order this regulator.
Just to share information with you:
I got false shorts using old native Joye eGo accumulators with Genesis. Genesis is an atomizer with a wick made from rolled stainless mesh. Accumulators rejected to work with these atomizers, showing short circuit, but according to measuring there was no short at all. I suspected that the heater works as a primary coil of a transformer and the mesh wick inside the heater coil could have its own shorts inside and could work as a shorted secondary coil. And obviously we could see this effect on AC or pulse power supply only, non DC. And it was right - when I soldered a ceramic capacitor in parallel to heater, these false shorts disappeared. I could see these "shorts" using old batteries only, approx made in summer 2010. If the eGo batteries made later, in 2011, no false shorts. Maybe firmware issues or something else...
Sorry for my English, hope that this info is useful.

It would demand 2.94 amps at 4.7 volts, and at 3 amps it would cut off, right?
Wouldnīt it be bad if I am running it all the time at the limit (3 amps) of its capability? Would it last a reasonable time?
Today I asked my friend to purchase this device for me (I will be out of my home when it should arrive), but he says that the booster is out of stock...
Thank you, Jack! Seems that you are one of the great developers who made this excellent thing allowable and available for all. Thank you. Your work is really great - I imagine all problems with development and practical making such tiny and powerful thing. My hat off
OK, fair enough, Will get a 18650 NoEgo, and then order an Ego Booster to make it VV.
