It's safe. It's not really a mech. FT says mech because it has no screen. It has a simple controller in it that won't let you short or destroy a battery. HG2's work great in it. Get one, you won't regret it.

It's requlated to a fixed voltage (like 3.7V I think.) At around 0.2 ohm it will give its stated 50W. Build to suit. I like builds in the 0.3-0.5 ohm range.

zpixel123, it is safe enough. no worries. unlike mech it has protection, usb charging circuit and the button do not conduct high amperage current. still using unregulated mods requires the knowledge of the Ohms Law as your only way to obtain your comfortable wattage is calculating and than making a coil with a proper resistance.

Randall, Pico Squeeze has no voltage stabilizing circuit, so the wattage degrades with the battery discahrge.

Sure. On average you will be vaping at P=U^2/R = 3.7*3.7/0.28 = 50W
All you need is the knowledge of the Ohm's Law and Steam Engine coil calculator

Remember the MAX is 50w so you won't get much heat on two fused claptons. 1 battery mechs people usually use round wire or insane low builds.

Like GramDogg say's...

You really need to factor in the mass of the fused claptons as well as the resistance. If a nominal 3.7 volts, to a 0.28 ohm load will yield 50 watts of power... That doesn't mean you'll enjoy the vape... The mass will affect how fast the coils ramp up and the time it takes to achieve the desired heat flux.

Considering the mass of dual coil fused claptons. 50 watts will be pretty anemic...

Living is the only thing worth dying for...

GramDogg, basically there is no 50W limitation, as there is only a MOSFET, not a board and with very low resistance coils it is possible to get more than 50W, however such usage shall torture a single battery rather hard and a very good at least 25A battery like Sony VTC5A is strongly advised.
The higher the current is, the more voltage sag we get, so puffs count till cutoff would be not good..

TL/DR; 50+W is achievable with Pico Squeeze, but not recommended due to serious battery overloading.
