1/4 KILOWATT: CHINA ROLLS OUT A NEW 260 WATT BOX MOD

Serious Chinglish issues here - but the demo is nice.


Remember a year ago we thought the DNA20 was amazing?   

A year ago today the DNA30 had NOT BEEN RELEASED yet - and look at where we are now?  With unregulated / mechanical tube mods fading its clear the community wants more and more power from regulated devices. China is more than happy to push the limits and has now broke the 250 watt barrier with the Joy4life 260.    

DID YOU KNOW:

The kilowatt is equal to one thousand (103) watts, or one sthene-metre per second. This unit is typically used to express the output power of engines and the power of electric motors, tools, machines, and heaters. It is also a common unit used to express the electromagnetic power output of broadcast radio and television transmitters.

One kilowatt is approximately equal to 1.34 horsepower. A small electric heater with one heating element can use 1.0 kilowatt, which is equivalent to the power of a household in the United States averaged over the entire year.

Also, kilowatts of light power can be measured in the output pulses of some lasers.
A surface area of one square meter on Earth receives typically about one kilowatt of sunlight from the sun (the solar irradiance) (on a clear day at mid day, close to the equator).

Is all this power REALLY necessary?  
Not really - but I still think its pretty damn awesome.
