SOME EVIC NUMBERS FROM FIRMWARE V1.1
I took some quick measurements with the eVic and the 1.1 firmware release. Here is what I came up with:
- 1.6 Ohm, Max setting of 11 Watts = 2.622 Amps (should = 4.195V, delivers ≈ 4.05V
- 2.1 Ohm, Max setting of 11 Watts = 2.289 Amps (should = 4.806V, delivers ≈ 4.7V)
- 3.0 Ohm, Max setting of 8.3 Watts = 1.663 Amps (should = 4.99V, delivers ≈ 4.8V)
Some confusion here for sure.
It’s maximum wattage setting for the 1.6 Ohm and the 2.1 Ohm was 11 watts. This gives the device a maximum output of 2.622 Amps, YET, the maximum wattage setting for the 3.0Ohm was 8.3 watts which is only 1.663 Amps.
Since it didn’t drive the 1.6 Ohm to 4.2V as it should have (only got to around 4.05V), it’s almost acting as if this device has an amp limit of around 2.5 Amps (as seen with the 1.6 Ohm) AND a voltage limit of 5V (as seen with the 3.0 Ohm).
So it looks like a limit of 2. 5 Amps or 5 Volts… whichever comes first!
