The Kick 2 – Wattage is controlled by the tiny screwhead

Available at RTDVapor for $49.99

A few months ago I decided to get a Kick 2 and check it out. What on earth is a Kick 2 you ask? Well, its a small circuit board that you slip into a mechanical mod that allows you to have variable wattage. It essentially converts your mechanical mod into a powered device similar to the Vamo, the Sigelei stuff, the iTaste MVP, etc.

Now most of these devices offer variable voltage and variable wattage. The Kick 2 is wattage only, but this works out just fine. What does all this mean anyway?

Variable voltage and wattage mods allow you to control the voltage or wattage. Its one mode or the other. With variable voltage, you dial in the right mix of flavor and hit off of a fixed wattage that the battery is giving out. In variable voltage mode you can control how warm the vape is. That’s the secret of wattage. The higher the wattage, the warmer the vape. The circuit will adjust the voltage according to the wattage you dial in so its fully automatic.

So why offer both? Well with cheap, Chinese gear is rarely accurate. In fact on most of theses mods the higher you go with the wattage, the circuit can’t actually get the voltage right. That’s why the offer both – you can always default back to voltage if its not hitting like you want it.

SO… Enter the Kick 2.

The Kick 2 is made by Evolv and they are quite amazing. They make the best digital vaping electronics available like the DNA20 and the DNA30.

The Kick 2 is simply a quick and easy way to get some options in a mechanical mod. The Kick 2 is the second version and better than the original kick.

You slide this little guy into your mechanical mod using an extension ring or by telescoping out and it allows you to control the wattage via a tiny trem pot that you twist with a philips head screw driver. I really like this – its dead simple and really easy to use. The trem pot allows you to adjust the wattage anywhere from 5 to 15 watts.

You know the battery is going out when the Kick 2 starts to stutter intermittently. It will vape for a second, cut off for a second, vape for a second etc.

The Kick 2 also supports sub-ohming down to 0.5 ohm.

The Kick 2 couldn’t work better. I use mine all the time in my Nemesis!

      I run either an 18650 or an 18350. Typically when I want the mod to be small and stealth I’ll go with the 350.
