I have this and it fires 1.3ohms and above and my low voltage cutoff is 3.1 volts

It does not have 10 second cutoff and will keep firing if button gets stuck accidentally or autofires.

But batteries have an amperage limit that can be drawn at one time. Watts= volts x amps. If you increase watts, it increases volts and amps. Could setting the kick to the highest wattage draw too much amps? Causing the battery to be damaged or even fail




When I am using my kick, I usually use SKU 1141100 which has a 6.4amp continous and have never had a problem.

There is no way you overload it if the lowest it fires is 1.3ohms as the most you could pull is about 3 amps which is well below the 6.4A of SKU 1141100

Short circuit, yes.
10 seconds cutoff, no.

Your right don't know what I was thinking. >.<

I meant to say no cutoff not no short protection


Fixed it so there is no confusion. ;)

Personally do not use it to much anymore as my coils are usually around .6 to .8ohms and a much better vape then at 12 watts and a 1.3 ohm coil. =D

@viking65 I think at one point we all used a kick haha! I'm in the 0.2 ohm to 0.4 ohm range these days!

Remember when sub ohm was so controversial and batteries didn't have such high amp limits!? Seems like so long ago now...

I think OP noticed what was originally asked and somewhat corrected it (in verbage) on the 2nd post. He originally asked about "Battery overdrain protection?" (voltage question).
Then he asked about mah, then applied amperage. When it was explained that it would not fire low ohms and would be around 3 amp draw, he knew "what was up".
Good job too all of you!
It is a FACT that mankind hates changes. Food for thought!
