    Yeah seems weird to me as well. I'm confident in my scale, and weighing abilities so it must be something with my fill method. I'm not new to the omicron, i've been using it for 6 months and really feel like i have it down. I've tried a bunch of the fill methods - blow dryer, lighter, torch (never letting it get too hot) and i never see any smoke coming from the cart which i know is a good sign. What is your method OF? Do you do anything special?

    Basically what's shown on the D9 site, except I'm 'old school' and still use the Winton #10 tip and toothpick since I can control it better (being thinner). I use a small torch type lighter. The key in loading I think is the preheating of the cart. What do your before and after weights of the vial show?

    i have an idea! i heat the carts up empty for 5 seconds let them cool and repeat two times before i fill. I weighed the carts before i did that, maybe i burnt out some weight in the empty cart?

    Could be, but I doubt it. 200mg is a lot of weight. Careful weightings should answer the question.

    I also strongly advise against "dry burns", leaks and other problems can follow and nothing is to be gained.

    Ok I'll stop doing the oxidizing. What exactly do you mean that the key is in preheating the cart?

    Heat the cart with a lighter so warm oil does not drip onto cold metal, lets the oil flow to the bottom and prevents any air bubbles.

    Is there any adapter I could buy or rig up to fit the tanks from ecigs? People sell tanks already filled locally so Id like to purchase a full tank rather than make my own oil and load the carts

    Yes, sure. They're most likely 510 thread so you'll need an adapter to convert from the female m601 threads in your Omicron to 510 threads (female again) to mate. Delta 9, TV and no doubt a bunch of others make these. I' using a bunch of the ones "OneLove" used to sell for $2 to go with their overpriced and under performing carts.

    By all means give it a go, but also try 'rolling your own'. IMO you get much better concentrate and more control. It's really pretty easy.

    Received my new aw 14500 batteries from Lighthound today. I'll never go back to 14650. It also seems to work good with both the HVD head and the v2.5 head. I need to test more to see if I can tell any difference. Glad I saved two new 2.4 carts loaded with some fantastic L.A. Confidential wax.
    Thanks OF for the idea and I agree that a mid-sized Omi tube would be an awesome accessory.

    You're very welcome, spread the word.

    The mid sized tube is supposed to be om the list of things to come, other stuff is ahead in line, but it's coming....

    When it gets here we loose more than half an inch.

    You have to have the long end cap that comes with the HVD upgrade or spacers.

    Was looking into the HVD upgrade. I have a purple Omicron and was thinking of getting the teal HVD head. I thought it might be interesting to have a multi colored vape. My question is that on each HVD there is a big warning written in red stating that Teal HVD's can only be used with teal Omicrons. And only purple hvd's with purple omicrons and such. Each color has this distinct warning.

    This question is primarily for G or anyone else from Delta9. IS THIS TRUE? can I really only use the same colored hvd head with the same colored tube? If this is true please explain why. This makes no sense as all colored omicron v2.5's and all colored hvd heads should be the same other than the color right???

    Hopefully someone can point to some logic in this strange warning on the D9 site. As I would love to have a purple and teal omicron.


    Also... I noticed that the 14500's everyone is raving about are only 600mah.... would these last a signifigantly shorter amount of time than the inlcuded 1000mah batteries included with the Omicrons? If so I dont understand the bennefit of them over the standard included batteries.

    You don't understand it because you haven't tried it? They deliver significantly more power to the load, meaning more heat, many of us find that a good thing.

    Honest, we're not making it up to boost our investment in AV battery stock......

    Thanks for the quick response. However...Of course I haven't tried it that's why I was asking the question. Im sorry we don't all have the vast knowledge of rechargeable batteries or electronics like you do OF. Wasn't implying that you are trying to boost sales for anything either....

    I was just asking a simple question.

    Of course I don't expect you to know everything, and asking questions is a good way to find stuff out.

    So, how many times do you think I've already answered that question? A LOT. I did answer your question, you will understand it when you experience it and IMO I get a free joke from time to time same as everyone else. No wait, it's not free....

    Feel free to ignore my post and not pay the bill when it comes.

    I am getting low on carts but can't wait around to sign for a package,I don't think my mail lady even attempts to get me to sign so I always have to go pick up the package from the PO. PV has free shipping on $130 or more to the US, do I need to sign for packages from PVC?

    You're welcome. I sleep when I get the urge, same as you? Just strange hours I guess, and often in naps.

    Hey- Just got a v2 this weekend. The load up was easy and it hits like a champ.... Only issue I'm noticing is a slightly funky taste. Is it possible that I didn't do the pre-oxidization process long enough?

    I'm using quality BHO that I'm familiar with. Does not taste like this when combusting...

    Either way, its not too big of a deal..as it really works well.

    i was wondering how long a ~1G cart usually lasts for most of you... it seemed to give a lot of hits but it seemed to go quick too... or maybe i was just puffin away because it was still new to me... i got about an evening and a morning out of it though.. and lots of big hits once it warmed up... not sure what version i have though, but i like it, and seems to conserve.. but the warm up time it takes to get bigger hits takes enough time to make it worth puffin on for a while... the smaller hits you get pretty soon after warming up are nice too but i like getting thicker lung fulls of oils. with out hitting it a million times ahaha

    IMHO ,this issue will be involved whenever ,wherever external batts become part of the program

    ~ seems only viable solution to avoid syndrome ,w/o carrying a bag of cells ,is the

    ''PASS_THROUGH" ,whether it's V2 ,Persei ,or O-Phos :-)
