    Devices similar to the iStick

    Hi guys;

    I'm looking to replace/augment my istick with another device due to the overpower issue from the PWM mode it uses. I'd like to find something of a similar size as I love the form factor on this one. I don't need huge power, the 20W the istick has is enough.

    What would people recommend? (I'm eyeing the vapooursharks but they are somewhat expensive).

    In real life, what issues are you having from it being overpowered due to PWM? Never really had an issue with it and I tend to use my istick more than other devices.

    There is plenty out there though (or just around the corner):

    The overpowered issue is with my Protanks will get to get a dry burn pretty fast; it works great for my rebuildables though. I should have also said that part of it was that I wouldn't mind having one with a swapable battery.
    I know there are many similar sized devices out there but though I would look for a recommendation from people who have tried some.
    Overall I really like the iStick and think the PWM mode is one of the few problems with it; especially given the price. As was said the number itself doesn't matter but its nice to be able to compare more directly between devices and evaluate them accordingly.
