    Ill give you my secret that I used to go international. Have some solid wax, shape it like tootsie rolls and wrap them. put it into a bag with 100 other real tootsie rolls. Put that in you checked luggage. Put your omicron in your carry on with no oil. They will think its an ecig. If you wanna be safe get a bottle of e juice to go with it.

    I got the red light in Mexico. They searched my bags, opened my omicron case, closed it and said thank you, enjoy your stay. No big deal.


    Have you tried the 7.4 version for herb??

    I can assure you SFO will not blink at the sight of any pipe or small bag of herb. People travel with dab rigs and torches as carry on, don't trip.

    Torches, allowed in SF? No where else in the country can a touch or a touch lighter empty or filled be checked in luggage or carry on.

    As far as bringing loaded carts I would advice to bring fresh loaded carts never hit in checked baggage and the omicron else where in the bag or carry on and leave the carts behind on the return trip. No way around breaking federal law by doing this (and state laws depending on where you land), same as mailing or buying it on the streets, only you can decide whether to take the mission on or not.

    Here is a very useful link with information on flying out of LAX, SFO, and Oakland international with your meds.

    http://forum.grasscity.com/medical-...g-medical-marijuana-airports-2012-update.html

    I cant find it now but when I lived in Oakland i remember a story in the local newspaper about them allowing you to fly out with your meds. However the risk is all yours if arriving in a state with no Medical program. Basically the article I read a few years back in Oakland newspaper said they will verify your rec is legit. If legit you can board the plane with a warning that once you step off the plane in a non medical state the risk is all yours. I personally have never had a bag checked when arriving at my destination.. only when leaving. Hope you find some useful info in this link.

    My opinion is if you have the time ship your carts and oil to family or friends and just bring the omicron with you on the plane either in luggage or your carry on.

    Also... Even if arriving in another state that has a medical program you would have to already be a resident and have your legal rec from that state when you land for it to truly be legal when you arrive. your Cali card is not valid anywhere else. Unless you go to Colorado or Washington since they are legal now in those states for recreational use.

    Good point. Attitude would play a key role here I'd think? Get a little pushy and the 'offended' TSA guy can put a call in that will beat you to the destination gate. All that's needed is the tip and a 'badge heavy' guy there out to make a few points to pull you out of line.

    I agree, an entire situation best avoided if possible.

    Battery questions.

    I am finding my AW IMR 14500 don't like to hold a full charge, if I put a full charged one aside and put it on the ultraFire WF-188 24hrs later they will take a charge for 10 minutes or more. Non of the other batteries I have (14650s, 14250s, or the 14500 AW ICs) loose a charge sitting for 24hrs. Is this normal for IMRs?

    Edit: I just had a thought about the IMRs, it's not like 24hr after a charge they are dead, they work fine, but maybe it is that little extra they have the is lost overnight? My solution has been to charge the IMRs last and leave them in the charger with the trickle charge until I need them or another batt needs charging.

    Next question is about the 14250s. I bought 8 of the 14250s total since the release of the original HVD top and I am down to 4 working ones. I know their small and don't have much capacity but at this rate I will burn through 8-12 14250s a year. I guess if you really like 7.4v then the Persai is the way to go. Anybody else burning through 14250s?

    I received a replacement Omicron V2 today.
    I repeatedly posted that I still prefer my Original Omicron V1 to my V2.
    I sited as my reason the fact that with the V2 the battery died a gradual death, making me wonder whether battery was low or cart was running low.
    My new Omicron V2 looks identical to the first, but it has been improved greatly, and now it functions with as much reliability as do my original Omicrons.
    I still do use my V1 Omicrons, but the VS is better when that extra few seconds of "boost" is needed on a sluggish cart.
    Also the V2 Omicron is needed for successful operation of the Hercules 3.7V cart.. so needless to say, I am breaking my new V2 in steadily!
    Vape on!~

    There is not a silver plate... it looks (other than serial number) exactly as did my 1st V2.
    It works well, nonetheless~

    I do not think you can do solid hash with anything on omicron. Maybe the hercules on a persei.

    Well except Revolution/DART (on an adapter). Performance is a little down from the TV supply due to the bigger drop with Omicron. Not all that well, but it does work.

    Otherwise D9 stuff needs oils, waxes or supermelts for now.

    Hello Vitolo, i love your vids and i know that you have tried the Pax and the Solo. What do you think of Omicron V2 + Herc 3.7V for vaping herbs vs Pax and/or Solo ? Is it 'easy' to heat too long and to combust ? Can you give us your feeling about battery life ?

    Thanks !

    Understood. It's not like folks wouldn't love to sell them......in fact many claim to if you only give them money.

    Revolution/DART in a solid e-cig pen will do it. DaVinci does an even better job IMO but the form factor is bigger. The hands down champ in portables for solids has to be the Cera LL. Flat out amazing, but at an inch in diameter and 7 long it can't be called a pen IMO.

    To be fair, I will hold off on answering this for a time.
    There is a technique that must be employed to achieve good vapor...... it includes releasing the button once you are at temp. BUT the thing cools down super fast, so you only release the button briefly in ratio to how long it is depressed.
    Add in the speed of draw, and needless to say I am still working to be able to hand down a mature comparison of some type.
    I am currently working with various "load sizes" and also trying different grinds, and learning that this has an effect.
    I already made most of the video that I will post on my Youtube channel, but need more time to understand and know "Herc" a bit better~

    Trust me, it's been brought up enough. And not just the girls (you insensitive sexist you...), San Francisco is just the other side of the airport from TV. Queens, Brutes and Savages (and everything between) have 'rights' too these days, just ask 'em. Sometimes you don't have to ask to get the full lecture....
