IPV 75w
looking at the IPV 75w/TC mod . i know a lot of people here are a fan of the IPV line . my concern is that it's single cell , and was wounding if 75w was a bit much for a single 18650

When life hands you lemmons , make lemmon aid . When life hands you coconuts , stuff them in your shirt and ask if they make your boobs look big .

RE: IPV 75w
I love my IPVs. I have the D2 and the D3. But if you vape like me you will need to cvarry some batteries with you. I can go through three/four a day easy. Good thing is I have a lot of mods. Today I vaped on my Cricket w/Aeronaut, my Cuboid w/Crown, my IPV5 w/Indestructible and now my Stout w/Petri. So it is non-issue for me. Tonight I'll pull out my D2 w/Cleito. Tomorrow - whoi knows - my ABS my Lucifer my Herlve my Boxer my Hexohm ... I'll see. I have over twenty batteries, two chargers and enough mods and attys for my whole neighborhood.

The D@ is nice but you now have the D3s so why not get the new one? Not that there is anything amiss with the D@. The upgraded versions don't add that much other thasn TC SS. But if you want that get the D3s.

RE: IPV 75w
i believe this is the older model . the vape shop i use tends to lean tward providing quality options to the lower income bracket . they do have top shelf items but much of the inventory is mid range.

RE: IPV 75w
The IPV D3 is a sturdy little device and a solid performer. I'd say it is one of the most well made smaller devices in the market. The display is a bit sparse in comparison to others, but there is all important information shown. I like it's menue system with the direct access to ohm locking. That way I can easily lock ohms every day I switch it back on, it is that small thing that makes it work so reliable in TC mode, too.
The paint is pretty thick, the shape is nice for my hand, the buttons click action is more on the firmer side. I like the 510 they use, it seems solid and the center pins spring has good travel.
Note, the charger plug is not via USB, it has a round plug which is much more safer, so I think. Because it does not have a USB plug the device is not ugradeable. But it does not really need to, as it functions well right out of the box. The real omission here is it does not offer SS in TC mode, insteat the outdated NI. 
My other main device is the eVic VTC Mini. I have a problem to say which one is better. The eVic Mini is much more versatile and has a goergeous display. But for the famous island I'd take the D3 with me.

RE: IPV 75w
I do think he's talking about the D2. The D3 is an 80 watt device. The D2, 75. 

The downside for me is the charging plug. As was stated, that plug - when positioned properly (I'm looking at you iPV4) - is safer. However, they do not include the cable or the charger, and that is an added expense. Since you're coming from a KBOX, it's logical to assume you have an external charger, so that might not be an issue. 

Another issue with the D2 is that it operates in PWN and does not offer step down. If you try to vape on lower ohm coils with lower voltage, you might be in for a hot time, indeed. If you vape at or above 4 volts and 20 watts most of the time, you're likely going to be OK.

@peter-k, I'd take the eVic...

RE: IPV 75w
this to the best of my knowledge is the D2 , the owner told me wednesday that he had some IPV's coming in and he was pretty sure they were 75w . the $50 price range makes it fit my budget, if time wasn an issue online shopping would open a lot of options for $60
