They are beasts, making it really hard to appreciate any of my other mech mods.

RE: Noisy Cricket
Current build:  dual 6 wrap fuse Clapton 26g/30g on 2mm @ .17ohm.   Peak output: 415 watts at almost 50amps.  Powered by Samsung 25R batteries with 20amp continuous discharge rate/90amp pulse rating.   
  First off,  let me start by saying this is the best build I've had since getting my NC.   Secondly,  let it be known that this is a very advanced build,  requiring specific batteries and a selective type of vaping.   If done properly it is still considered safe,  but if you are careless or aren't into pulse vaping,  then this build or anything above your batteries' max continuous discharge rate is not for you.  The vape is done on 1 second pulse and even at this low of build,  it's a very warm vape,  which is what I prefer,  but not too hot,  even when chain vaping.   There is not safefall for depressing switch,  so keep in mind that if at any time you surpass your continuous discharge rate you jeopardize damaging your batteries,  mod and your personal health.   If not an advanced vaper,  always stay within the mod manufacturer's recommendations and within the amperage range of your battery type. The noisy cricket is one of the most customized mods I've used, but it's also a very powerful and dangerous mod for inexperienced or careless vapers. Build smart and when in doubt ask questions and educate yourselves as much as possible.

RE: Noisy Cricket
I have to say that's a very dangerous build, and certainly not somthing I'd do or recommend. You must be aware that a "pulse" has an industry standard time of 1ms, and the data sheet doesn't state a cool down time thereafter.. the pulse could be 1ms every 60s! 
415w is unattainable from two 18650 batteries, as is 50a from a series configuration.

RE: Noisy Cricket
I have two Noisy Crickets. From my experiences I would not build below .3 ohm. It just is not safe. Now I will build below .3 ohm on my HoG. On my series potentiometers I will build to .2 ohm. But .17 never. It just is not safe even if pulse vaping. It's an accident waiting to happen.

Here is what you are drawing on fresh batteries ... 40 amps and 340 watts. Seriously dude. Even with a .3 build it is 27 amps and 220 watts. That is pushing it. With a potentiometer I can decide how many volts I push.

Velocity - .35 build

Aeronaut - .86 build

There is a cool upgrade for the Cricket here ... I bought two ... waiting for them to arrive ...

RE: Noisy Cricket
FYI,  the 90amp pulse rating is a 5 second pulse rating for the Samsung 25R as per the manufacturer's product specifications, so please refrain from posting fearmonger propaganda in a thread meant to educate.   Yes it is an advanced build that requires respect and knowledge of use,  but that was already stated.   As for the switch upgrade,  got mine on order and can't wait for it to arrive.   Looking forward to glass peek insulator for added safety.  That was my biggest beef with this mod was the poor quality switch that comes on it stock.   Glad someone stepped up and made an improved switch.

I am educating. If you read Mooch's battery reports and not the manfucaturers you will see that I am not fearmongering. I'm simply stating what you are drawing off your batteries at .17 ohms. If you are comfortable with that okay. I'm not.

RE: Noisy Cricket
More than comfortable actually.   I would even wager that your .35 ohm build on a 3 seconds pulse generates more heat and causes more strain on your batteries than my .17 @ 1 second pulse.  There is no sag on 1 sec pulse, the risk of battery failure increases every second you drain your batteries.   The only safety issues that would cause concern are the same dangers any other mech user would face.   That's a stuck switch or direct short to atomizer.  NC isn't exactly a pocket friendly design anyway.

RE: Noisy Cricket
Even written here it's stated as a 1s pulse rating, with the graphs showing .05s pulses. I can't escape the fact that this could mean 1ms pulses for 1s. cool down cycle is stated as 30m

I'm not a scaremonger, quite the opposite in most cases. Call it being cautious. In regard to educating, I can only go by the research I've done and knowledge gained. You may know better than me, and fair play if you do.

RE: Noisy Cricket
I'm just stating my build for purposes of application and mech mod knowledge.  As for recommending my build to anyone,  I would not.   People that look to any forum for advice on builds or safety are inexperienced to the point they should follow manufacture guidelines until they are knowledgeable enough to find resources outside of forum posts. With builds like mine you need to know about short charging,  battery limitations,  basic electrical theory and application.
