    Then it just occurred to me that the kick stand would be a different size used on the Grand and on the 18490 Reo... Hmmm.... I have the STL file for the Grand downloaded and I think I can get someone to make it for me here close by, but the one for the 18490- anyone have a STL file for that? I suppose I could go the rubber eraser route!! LOL
    I dont see why the kick stand for the 18490 would have to be any different than one for a 18650 mod. The battery is the same diameter and nothing has changed with the kick. The battery compartment on the 18490 reo should be the same as the grand, just a bit shorter.

    The distance across is less in the 18490 mod- not sure it that makes a difference. As it is now, I'm not having any luck...I'll buy a pink eraser...I believe I have an exacto knife somewhere...

    Dave,

    Just cut the length of the eraser enough to give a little pressure to the side of the Kick...not too much not to little. I have added a tiny spacer on my as well. Cut a small piece to fit under the contact of the Kick and that goes out to the edge of the Kick. THis will help hold the Kick square up in the mod. I can go weeks without removing the Kick with this set up.

    I do believe the Kick stand would work on the 18490. THe extended Kick stand mighy have to be shaved a bit length wise.

    Thanks everyone! I used the pencil eraser concept but found that the rubber insert from a carto w/ the little silicone clear piece that sticks through it is the perfect size- at least for now. Vaping at 8.5watts w/ 1.5ohm atty on my 18490...wow!!!

    Whatever works, works. I vape about the same wattage on mine. I think the standard resistance atties work very well with the Kick. Just make sure when you put your battery in that its not upside down. If it is upside down the Kick will be dead and the Mods spring will be as well.
    I know this from experience.
