New Cricket, Still Noisy
The Wismec Noisy Cricket II-25 is the followup to one of the most interesting box mods of 2015. While most of the vaping business was releasing variable-wattage box mods, Jay-Bo and Wismec served up a mechanical box mod that used two 18650 in series, for unadulterated raw power.
In the right hands, the original Noisy Cricket was an atypically powerful mech that offered a unique vape. In the wrong hands, it was potentially dangerous. The Noisy Cricket II-25 retains the ability to run in series, but also adds the ability to run in parallel. It also introduces voltage adjustment and a protection circuit. Here’s a closer look.

Here’s the specs and features list of the Noisy Cricket II-25.

- Cell Type: Two high-rate 18650 batteries

A Whole New Beast
As you can see from the features list, the Noisy Cricket II-25 is a much different box mod than its predecessor. It’s obviously bigger, but it also has more varied capabilities. The most fascinating addition is being able to flip the circuit board so that the mod can run parallel or series. This gives vapers a fantastic option of going for longer battery life or more power.
The protection features and the ability to control voltage are nice additions as well. As cool as the original model was, there were too many
idiots unsafe vapers out there that used builds that were way too low for a series mod. (I’ve seen photos of the aftermath.) While competent and reasonable vapers will still be able to enjoy series mode, these extra protections will help protect some vapers from themselves.
Although it’s not the pure mechanical awesomeness that the original was, the Noisy Cricket II-25 is still a unique 2016 box mod. The majority of enthusiast devices released this year were of the temperature-control variable-wattage variety. It’s nice seeing something a little bit different, versatile, and distinct that’s aimed towards vapers that enjoy building their own coils. Best of all, the mod is inexpensive, with several online sites listing it for under $30.
