    the hold is done by the banks, we cant do anything about that, that is why it takes 7-10 business days to get the holds off on some banks.

    Believe me when i say this the CS agents at banks dont care to help in these situations and want to pass the buck, but i can assure you, an authorization is only an authorization and once that is lifted by the banks the funds will remain in your account. They should have told you that it is an authorization only and no funds have been deducted.


    Once again i do apologize, but waiting game it is as of now and you should be happy by end of week when all of this is cleared up,

    awesome! i greatly appreciate the clarification and am now only focused on figuring out what my wait time is, and I'll deal with it tomorrow.

    On to the important stuff:

    Is the Persei/Hercules series recommended for someone unfamiliar with box mods etc.? Interested in seriously upping my portable wax game but totally unacquainted with e-cig procedure and culture.

    I've been following this thread a bit as I'm considering a purchase from W9. I'm only commenting now to say that THC Scientific is accurate as to how the banks work for that. I briefly worked for a company that sold concert tickets and the most common complaint was "you've took all my money" when the reality was these customers had attempted to make a purchase repeatedly and simply had their money tied up in holds. It's an unfortunate system in how it can tie up all of someone's available funds if there were verification details screwed up and someone makes repeated purchase attempts. Each time you input billing information and request it be processed by a merchant the funds for that transaction will be put on hold for some amount of time. The best way to work around this is to not repeat a transaction if it doesn't work the first time and to thoroughly verify that all information is entered exactly correctly.

    Yep, I'm going to go ahead and delete my previous posts. You're right about the verification--herbalizer can blur the vision at times:whoa:

    And Sam from W9 also just called to double check that everything was okay. top notch customer service all around

    You can't delete your posts, only moderators can. In this case, we won't because this was an educational exchange. Your initial complaint was reasonable and respectful. The response was likewise and provided helpful information explaining how the system works. It's admirable that you want to take steps to make sure you don't damage the company's reputation, but your concern is unnecessary.

    It's been a pleasure helping and am glad the next question is a lot more fun than waiting on banks and financial fubars :)

    The Persei has two modes and if you're only interested in running the Hercules you don't even need to worry about 3.7V mode: A Persei, the Hercules, and a pair of AW batteries. You could keep it simple with just 3 items needed to add to a cart and buy a Persei and Herc setup. Where the Persei / Herc can be difficult comes with the usage techniques of that cartridge itself; learning how to load and prime it, and how to draw during the hit and after. The Hercules needs to be cooled down after a session, something unique compared to most other oil cartridges (although our Gen 3 KISS and AC do benefit from cool downs as well) and this helps preserve the flavor of the oil instead of allowing it to sit in a hot chamber, cool it down to keep the terpenes and other chemicals in good shape instead of cooking them out. As the oil cools it can solidify in the Gr2 Titanium coils.

    Feel free to give me a call any time you'd like to chat about the Persei or Herc, I'll be honest about what situations it shines in, and where a different device might be more appropriate. I certainly don't recommend the Hercules to every person that calls in, depends on a person's experience level, needs, and usage conditions/environment.

    I do kind of use the kiss 3's like the herc. I leave a pool of oil in there so I do cool down hits. I know to reload when it starts vaping the off/burnt tasting pool. I can't load too much or I start sucking it up the mp, but I can get 2-3 sessions out of a load.

    Hey guys, i have this kiss cart from 2014(i think) and it a black one that comes in 3 parts
    The base, the body, the mouthpiece.
    I absolutely love how easy it is to load, and thankful it lasted me this long, unlceaned(coil)
    I always take this out n about because i can just unscrew the body with the mouth piece and expose the coil.
    The cup is not obstructed by an metal or body piece and i always just snap a little bit of shatter off of a big chunk and pretty much smear it on the coil with my finger. I have done this walking to and from school, holding a drink in one hand lol
    it has the titanium wick, not a white ceramic one.

    Do you guys have anything like this still available? I LOVE this thing. It says Up Tech Ti Gr2 - 3.7v on it, and i have to use a 510 adapter.

    Ah! I hadn't checked the sale page. Thanks!

    Will you guys ever have that stealth body attachment for the Alpha C by itself?
    I just broke a glass globe yesterday and wish i had that metal body :T


    OH and btw, whats the difference between the 3.7v ophos and the 3.7omicron/presei option you have there?
    I know i have the omicron type right now. but the ophos version?

    not sure what you mean stealth body attachment for the Alpha C, you can replace the globes, but a stealth body attachment by itself? not sure what that means.

    Well, i got an alpha from Oilvaporizer last week and was wondering if there would be a metal casing that slips on over the o rings and base just like the glass globe?
    I'm just assuming that's how the stealth body works on the Alpha C.



    oh, and in case you missed my edit on that post before;
    whats the difference between the 3.7v ophos and the 3.7omicron/presei option you have there?
    I know i have the omicron type right now. but the ophos version?

    The Alpha Globe is for OV atm and they have commissioned it in that format, only the glass and the coils will work with the Kiss AC to purchase the stealth shield you have to fully purchase the Kiss AC no way around that.


    Now the Ophos and Omicron share different Circuit boards, and different threads, Ophos being a 601 Ego while the Omicron being a 601 Mod.

    Hope this helps.

    All orders that come in today after our last shipment run ended and from now on until we run out will get one.

    So yes if you ordered after you saw that then you will get a omicron

    Ordered two of those atomizers i liked yesterday.
    Happy to see you guys added a 510 mod option!

    I use my alpha globe at home whenever i know i won't be falling all over the place hehehe :ko::cool:
    With these i can just open up the atty to expose the coil, pinch a bit of shatter off a slab and slap it on the coil, pulse the power 2 to 3 seconds at a time and and BOOM!
    at 5volts on the eleaf, single dab mini rig.:science:

    To my chagrin, yes.

    RIP, chemdawg wax.

    I mean it still worked pretty well and all, but then I unscrewed it and it was.. kinda sticky.
