I read somewhere it has a 4 amp max limit, is this right?

Must be more than 4 amp, looks more 6 or 7 A (according an Ohm's law calculator...)

NB : A vamo has 5 amp limit and gives only 11.5W with 1 battery (needs 2x350 to reach 15W)

+1 details
According to Segelei's specs, it is a max of 4A but "while smoking >3amp". Search enough Al*baba pages with Sigelei as the manufacturer and eventually you'll find some specs. Finding the max voltage output is much more difficult, at least it is for me.

Just because it says it can take a 3ohm coil doesn't mean it can actually output 15 watts at that resistance(6.7v, unlikely).
Just because it says low resistance protection kicks in at under 1 ohm doesn't mean it will output 15 watts at that resistance(3.87A, maybe).
It might still fire with these resistances but that doesn't mean the output will match the settings, much like a Vamo. At least it has a few protections built in.

I was on Sigelei site, chating with the staff and noone could tell me the amp limit and there's nothing in their product page

LOL

change the ! in al!baba to an i

That's the best info I've ever been able to find. I realize most of it says 5-10 watts ans stats to match the older 10 watt Kick, and "New mod Sigelei kick to adjust power 5.0W-15.0W" has no other updated specs. Their own website has even less info. I know it's not nearly as powerful as the 15 watt Evolv Kick 2 which says it goes up to 6 amps and down to 0.5 ohm, not that I ever figured out how you get 6 amps out of 0.5ohm at 15 watts (that's only 5.47 amp).

Thank you for the information, i'm in the process of doing a spreadsheet with lots of combinations, mainly voltaje, resistance, watts and amps and seeing if it would work on different setups i.e. different batteries, evic and this kick, even if the limit wasn't 4A the watt and/or resistance limit wouldn't let you use a higher amp setting.

@ Schnarph : I've understood ^^ it's just that I've tryed to speak to the (useless) Sigelei survey to have confirmation...

I can't thrust Ali Baba & the 40 thieves about specs...
