If I go to the Cali Cup on the 26th in LA then yes. Usually I stick to the Bay Area.
I'll be there from January 24th to the 27th. Hopefully you take a trip to the Cup. I would love to meet a fellow D9 head!
Indeed, I'll see what's up and let you know. Got plans on the 26th? You should roll to the event either way!
Where is it at? I will try to get my boys to make it out to the event.
ive got an Omi cart from way back. from before they were pre heated to prevent any negative flavors... anyway, the cart has gotten pretty clogged and the normal stuff isnt fixing it anymore. i know there is more oil in there and i want to get at it.
can the Omi carts be soaked in Iso to reclaim whats left? or would that be a bad idea?
I don't know for sure but the Thermovape team broke an Omi cart down on Youtube, and there was different bits of rubber/plastic in there; wick and solder also. Not sure any of those materials would be safe for an ISO soak. I don't know if I've seen anyone say they do this.
G can probably give you a more exact answer.
thanks Ace. i thought i remember it being discussed before, but i never heard what the conclusion was.
i suppose i can always torch it upside and let whatever is left fall out.
I was going to suggest that.
This is pretty much the only reason I prefer the DART over Omi carts. Though I suppose you can't beat pre-loading a bunch of Omis and heading out on the town.
I have seen ISO reclaim mention numerous times in this thread. Gentle heat is another way to get the oil out. The cart claims .2-.3g that you won't be getting back. I personally find the heated reclaim to be worthless for vaping but is great for edibles, then again I will trash a cart with a 1/2g in it when it slows to much or tastes like crap.
You do 'get back' that .2-.3g of oil, the next time you fill it.
True and an ISO wash might get you back some of that oil that has baked onto the wick. Let me re word it, heating a dead cart to reclaim the oil will not get you that .2-.3g of oil back.
The iso soak has been mentioned here many times and I myself have used this method. Personally, I do it to have a clean cart again as opposed to gathering the reclaim but yes, it works.
I was wrong. I searched back and did find numerous examples. I still wouldn't do it
anyone who still has a old Chrome HVD with a click on click off button you can send it in for replacement.
Thanks for the update. Will the chrome HVD's be automatically sent to those of us that already returned the original units??? TIA.
You have to contact D9V for that answer boss as i am not handling that section of the company anymore.
Thanks G. Will do.
Hi best forum on the net,
I just purchased the Omicron V2 and now the HVD upgrade. I'm considering buying the 3.7 volt Hercules Herb Chamber. Does anyone have experience with this product and does it work well with the Omicron? Also, will the 7.4 volt version of the Hercules (which also does oils) work with my Omicron as I've added the HVD upgrade?
Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my questions.
There is a video demonstration of an Omicron v2 with a 3.7 Hercules cart posted here:
Omicron Vaporizer for oils
From what I understand, the two little 14250 batteries don't have the "balls" to push the Hercules 7.4 version.
3.7v Herc is for herbs only.
Actually I think the question was 'can the 3.7 Volt cart for herbs be driven by the Omicron V2'?
Not sure, I think the answer is 'no, not well'?
It can drive it, but the newer v2 tops with the chrome ring will be much better.
i'm giving one of my Ophos to a friend along with some 2.4ohm carts.
i mainly use 1.5ohm Omicarts or lv tv dart with mine.
what else can she run with it? is there a herb cart for use on the Ophos?
This is my first post, been reading here for a couple months after my neighbor showed me a Vape pen. After doing a lot of reading and reading alll the arguing and other fun stuff involved with the subject I decided to order a battery and a 2.4 Ohm Omicron cart. then I bought 1G of Incredible Hulk Wax from the YB Collective ( pretty cool people over there). I hope this is the right thread to post in, I really just wanted to say thank you to THC Scientific and all involved with the design and refinement of this thing.
Thank you !!!
After reading the ins and outs, complaints/praise of the Omicron I decided to go that route first. ( my neighbor had a g-tank and it was kinda weird.. so I wanted to try the Omicron.
Last night I oxidized the cart, then I broke up my wax and put it in the freezer for a couple minutes, then I took it out and each little piece of wax I was able to roll into little snakes without it getting onto my fingers ( can you tell that I forgot to buy the fill tool ? :-) the little snakes of wax slipped into the cartridge sides easy enough and then I saw it was time to gently apply some heat, so I did that holding the cart in hand to gauge the heat, not heating the bottom of course, I also used a bright LED lite to look down and make sure all 1G flowed down to the bottom.
I was getting pretty excited so far as I finally finished filling it and made no mess. I went thru the priming routine and this thing RIPS !!! ( for me so far) I guess I got a good fill, and after following all the intructions it worked great.
I'm a Mechanical Designer and love tweaky gadgets, so going through the effort was no big deal at all and quite fun for me. I ran in to show my wife and she was not much excited so I went back out and enjoyed a few more rips, she did appreciate that I did not end up wreaking like skunk after lol.
Can't wait to see what comes next. So far this has been the most optimal way of medicating ( I've not tried Pure Gold yet but want to)
( lol I admit I actually bought some Gold Gaps last night to see if I could vape the juice... but I did some more reading this morning and found I would be a stupid dumbshit to do that because Tetra does have a proper product for smoking lol, I just figured it was the same juice inside and was all YB had left in stock.. don't do it )
Does anyone else find that the taste of the vapor changes as the cartridge is used?
Im still on my first cartridge but so far that is what I am finding. Initially I thought the hits had a somewhat funky taste. I could taste BHO but it was a bit different than what I was expecting.
However, as I used the cartridge more, I noticed it started to taste better. The hashy deliciousness was very present. Now I'm on the third week of fairly regular use and it is still pulling big clouds, but starting to taste a bit like it initially did.
If I remember correctly the instructions warned not to get the cartridge and funnel too hot while filling. I do admit that my first filling experience was a bit of...well, an experience. (i dont have the steadiest of hands.) Its possible that it got too hot and altered the taste a bit. Thoughts?
