So the base is only power controlled and no T° control like with TC mode with a mod... isn't it? Very, very satisfied with this vape combined with my Evic mini and some VTC4's, It's my daily driver now and the most used vape of my arsenal but I had some mitiged beginnings, there is a learning curve, at least for me. It's the closer vape of a joint experience i have, you can take a puff or two and put it back on the desk. I rotate the stem every hit or two and stir once for a load (not really in fact I only pack it slightly with my finger cause I was annoyed to spill). With my settings I get a very dense and flavorfull vapor in a 10s rip, taste fade a bit after a few hits... but i like medium to hot t°! I use it mainly dry but I enjoy a few loads through water too. Yesterday I got a nice session with my atomic bubbler and some pretty decent moroccan hasch.... cloud city and the nose on the plate!
