    Hi I could use some help. Installed artic fox firmware in my P80, load settings from the imp page, I'm getting vapor, clouds but I'm also getting hotspots and like combustion too, any help/advise?

    Thanks

    You need to lower your tcr value until you find your sweet spot
    Edit : ive played a lot with my impcognito to find my value without glowing. I have hot spot but i only need to turn the stem between draws to fully and even roasting :nod:

    Lower your TCR by 10 at a time and test. Mine is at 110 now on AsterRT, don't really even need to turn for even heat

    I also recommend you to reduce the TCR,
    Resistance also reduce to 0.22 in my opinion

    Take a look every 2-3 draws, you should not see any hotspots. Keep the resistance the same, Change the TCR to around 120 for start testing.

    Yeah I should have said, helps to have a baseline temp, say 360, to gauge the performance you expect at that temp @lordtinuviel, may only need one hit

    Why don't you put a lower temp for a start ? You should avoid hotspots and later you can play with tcr to have the heat that match with what you are expecting for each temp. It's subjective anyway and only provides a scale. What are we talking about anyway ? the temp of the coil or of the load which are different ? It's up to you but lowering the temp should work for a start.

    That's really it, my P & I were whatevers on mist's site, I don't adjust anything but the TCR and temp. Flavor will fade as you hit a bowl btw, first few are the tastiest.

    Sorry for the double post, but I wanted to cross post from the impcognito thread (there really should just be one thread for both since they are the same vape, just with different size shell/sleeve)

    Got some new bent stems to try! My favorite option for glass vapes

    [​IMG]

    Of course the second is much larger, but the first is super sleek and portable with a more acute angle (though the folds in the bend can get warm). I also have one like the long one that is cut right after the bend, have not tried that one yet, but these other two are great!

    Also got a bloodwood mouthpiece to match my bloodwood Imp. Waiting on some cooling beads though, then I'll share that too along with the other bent stem. Trying different screen setup too, I have the normal basket in the big bent stem (not sure how I'm going to get it out...) while I put a flat screen in the smaller stem like this:

    [​IMG]

    So I think it will be easier to poke this one out for replacing, there is a nice ledge for it to sit on and it fits very securely. Half inch size, slightly domed, so I think a 3/8 inch size would be more ideal...

    Brilliant setup! The most powerful tiny vape possible. Size comparisons?

    I cycle through my vapes but that is partly cuz the wife uses them too. At home I mostly use my mighty and tubo evic, out and about it's lil bud and imp. I like LB a lot, especially that I cant break it, but temperature control and the predictability of the Imp are making it my more used. The wife dislikes unregulated for sure so she mostly doesnt use LB. I also like the 14mm bowl more than I thought I would, it forces me to be more efficient but this thing still extracts every bit of it. Speaking of efficient, the M gets a whirl now and again but she is pretty clearly our least used.

    I should probably add that part of the reason I use Imp more out and about is it feels more stable, less fragile and likely to succumb to my clumsiness. The mod though I'm certain I will drop and break but is relatively cheap.

    Are you getting the high you want with the avb to match?

    What firmware are you using? With surmyevic you adjust the TCR value to make the coil/air temperature match the goal temp. My P80 seems best at TCR 198. Once you have your TCR settled try adjusting where the air intake holes are, I find more even extraction when they face straight forward/backward.

    Edit to add @Shit Snacks those are sweet. I haven't checked the site for a bit, are those from MV? Actually, maybe I dont wanna know unless they're free.
