    Just wish mine would get here.

    The kick is a VW booster that will fit in a 18650/18500 mod.

    The kick? Its a module that goes into tube mods that gives any mod similar functionality to the Darwin. It is a variable wattage control that will adjust your wattage to the same value regardless of voltage or ohms or battery performance. It requires the use of IMR batteries and has built in cut off protection. So basically if you like 8 watts, it will always be 8 watts till the battery gets to its cut off which is 3.2 volts I think, does not matter what atomizer/cartomizer resistance you are using.

    Will post mine once I get both pieces in the mail, for the kick I am looking at Saturday, not sure on the batts.

    When I got mine I thought I was just gona turn it all the way up and love it .imo it hits harder then just fresh 18650 by itself so ended up turning it down to around 8.5 watts on the meter its reading 3.8 volts but it hits harder than that any one else experiencing this? O I'm using a 1.5 ohm atty

    I am curious how this is gonna affect battery life. I currently use 5 volt nimh batts and only like them for about 2 hours, maybe 3 hours of use as they start at 5.8. After 3 hours they are at 5.2 or so and I like them less at that voltage so I recharge. I am wondering the effect of having the same wattage through out battery life.

    I don't think so as it adjustes all the components of ohms law to give the same wattage always, including voltage. To get watts you have to multiply votage times current, to get current you have to divide voltage by resistance. There are complex algorithms in this thing that adjusts those to always give the same wattage.

    Using the kick in a vmod sounds pretty neat I've been looking into both. Kinda wanted the smaller one just because you can get replacement bodies for it in different colors. But I never thought about the kick in the xl makes the decision much tougher lol.

    I've been using mine for a couple hours now and I'm impressed its very consistent and hits hard I thought I would like 10 watts butt that's not the case I'm runing it at 8.5 watts

    18490 Battery life --- from what I've read, it should last with the Kick at least as long as a 14500 would, or a bit more. And, it requires IMR batteries. The Kick has it's own protection circuits, so it's also an extra safety precaution.
