    that's something you'll have to figure out yourself, but that's what they were made for?

    Had some questions, about ABV color and texture using the Herc.
    check it out... with technique the Herc has become a regular tool for me~

    What I am doing here, is I am keeping the button depressed.... even during the shake...
    and I am sipping and puffing.... with minor vapor.
    All at once I get richer flavor, and still shake, and sip... and when flavor is at it's peak, I will release button for only a second... and repress it to continue.
    I do not feel that release of the button momentarily is vital. I simply think I am doing it to avoid scorching the herb.
    After a number of great hits, I open the top.
    If the ABV that remains up in the mouthpiece is golden brown, then I know all the frest in the chamber will be.~

    IMO there's a very big difference. They overlap some but when 1.5s get slow you can wreck things by pushing on.

    When a guy honestly feels he's got it sorted out, that he can control the 2.4s at will and is actually being held back with poor performance (like you?) it's probably time to experiment. But I'd advise loading light and planning on having a few accidents along the way. When they get away from you, the results are usually poor. Leaking and marginal carts are a real bummer IMO, very frustrating in that you keep messing with them rather than getting the job done.

    Good luck, and keep the 2.4s handy.

    Another great video, Vitolo, thanks again.

    I don't know about the others but I like the robe. I think it's a 'good look' for you. Never thought of you as a trend setter.....

    Not to question the Sage of the High Desert or anything, but how about some showy embroidery.....like the dragon on a Chinese silk robe? A giant leaf of our favorite plant might make a good statement doncha think?

    thanks for the info... the 2.4s work fine and i can get good rips all the time, its just at times i'd like more from them, faster than they can offer. i didn't expect the 1.5s would be touchy like that so thanks for bringing that up, i'll keep that in mind when i try it out.. i assumed they were not too powerful to mess anything up, so i was curious as to how strong they really were... i mostly wanted to make sure they were a good ammount stronger than the 2.4s before i went out and got some. thanks

    it does hit as hard, but i don't believe the switch is rated for the 3.7 herc. i think you need an omicron, iirc. maybe OF or G can clarify

    Here is how I use my different ohm carts.

    2.40hm for watching a movie and sipping on it non stop. Will not make me cough. I can refill for a long time before issues. Never made one leak and I can hit it almost non stop

    1.5ohm for stealth use , quicker to get a hit (more vapor in a shorter amount of time). Next to bed for sleeping issues. Can make me cough if I inhale long enough. . i can refill 4-6 times ( carts not dead just flow is restricted or oils have been cooked to much and taste shitty).

    5ohm cart at 7.4v for running through glass for big milky hit or carry around for big hits. Can make me cough easily. Can easily over heat it and cook the oil which also lead to clogs and leaks. These go through oil quick, for me through glass I get 20 hits or so for .2g, this means if first fill is .5g then I get low quick and can easily be fighting a cart that is low on oil and cooking the wicks. The way I deal with it is by using the first fill until I have used .2g and then fill .3, now I have a cushion past 20 hits. Because of the harder pulls I do with glass these carts ends up getting first hit clogs very easy, also since I am looking for big performance with them when they drop off they are toast, maybe 4 .2-.3g loads after the first fill.

    4ohm to run on 7.4v ( not exactly recommended) I have not tested these yet. Seems it would be easy to burn cart out if not careful on the button but I will soldier on and give it a shot soon.

    thanks GR, i was unaware there was more than 3 cart strengths.. i still have reading to do... thanks for the help. never heard of a 5 or 4 cart good to know. i think ill be happy w/ a 1.5... i like the 2.4 but i wish i could take it further half the time. thanks again for the response(s)

    Well you need the HVD kit for the Omni v2-2.5 to be able to do 5ohm, or 4ohm (maybe) and run it at 7.4v. There is also a 3ohm cart, the 3,4, and 5 are really for the Persai but the HVD gives us the power to use them with the little 14250 batts.

    Ophos be us.
    I mean... we be here...
    I mean,, yes, we talk O-Phos here.
    O-Phos, is sort of like an Original Omocron, but can be used while charging... nice feature, and a great vape!

    i love my Ophos and have used it hard for i guess about a year. i did the upgrade special deal from v1 after breaking a few chargers.
    you will need to press the button 5 times fast to unlock it. i think that took me an hour to figure out.

    Vito can you tell me how much herb you vape on a fully charged battery before a recharge is needed?

    The battery life is good.
    1st time I did it I did one entire session, and was afraid to go without a recharge for number two.
    Since then, because I have a spare battery... I have pushed the limits.
    1-I have vaped oil with a 2.4 for half a day, done a full Herc 3.7V session, and a few more oil hits.
    2-I did 3 Herc 3.7V sessions, and did a few oil hits, that still worked fine with a 2.4
    3-I vaped 3 full sessions... of just herb. (and a few hits into a 4th
    You asked how much herb.....
    In quantity-----> I vaped a bit over half gram of meds before changing the battery

    So you would say about .6 of herbs vaped while also using the a cartridge for oils on the same device.

    Can you do me a favor, charge one battery and use it only for herucles duty. See how much is vaped and if you have a multimeter do voltage checks in between sessions if possible.

    I want to get some real live world numbers.

    Clarification, sorry for my lack of clarity.
    The third thing I wrote was just herb duty, and so was the amount
    It was not .6 while using device for oil.
    It was using the device only for herb
    3-I vaped 3 full sessions... of just herb. (and a few hits into a 4th
    You asked how much herb.....
    In quantity-----> I vaped a bit over half gram of meds before changing the battery
    And the battery was not dead into the 4th session, just "time to charge".

    Next part is where I let you down...
    Yes I bought a multi meter.
    I bought it when you and I began talking volts.
    I do have a feel for ohm/volt balance on my Persei
    but I never successfully used the multimeter
    a half dozen friends have attempted to explain what to do.
    Over the phone they "walk me through it".
    I am afraid I can not get that information to you.
    I have yet to get any information from my multi meter... and I admit it..
    so... you tech guys... don't roll your eyes at me.

    Multi Meter mental block.
    Multi Meter dont function here.

    Real world numbers.
    3 and a half sessions
    over .6 of a gram were consumed
    almost 3 hours were covered
    One patient was medicated
    There was still charge left, it appeared.

    I have not tried on my Omicron yet. I will charge up the battery on that now. With my Persei, I got through 4 loads and still didnt need a charge

    Hey guys,

    Loaded .5 of pure gold into a new 2.4 cart and found the cart to be clogged upon vaping. Took cart off and it was leaking clear fluid. Was careful to follow all the proper techniques when filling and I'm certain I didn't bust the seals (was holding lower third during fill and it never got warm during heating except for when the oil dropped). Was curious about a couple things:

    1. I'd read others say the clear stuff is saliva, I really didn't notice myself drooling on inhale but would love reassurance that no other reports of mystery non saliva liquids leaking from carts have surfaced.

    2. Vaporpedia says don't use white mp for pure gold. Is the metal mp better, or just none at all?

    Appreciate any insight, and I really appreciate the knowledge bank that is FC.

    It took me a few weeks to finally get everything sorted out, and D9V was always helpful, but now I totally get the Omicron. It's awesome. I have the HVD kid with extra batteries so that allows me to run with 2 separate vape pens. and filling these carts was really quite easy once i got the hang of it. 1.5ohm cart on the small tube works great.

    looking forward to a persei purchase in the future and hoping the Omi will last
    --
    One things im not so sure about is the battery charger, has anyone had better luck with a different charger? mine seems a bit sporadic

    i have a feeling puregold might be too thin, but others would know better than me.

    i found that heating the product at the right temperature and in a sort of downward spiral motion, to make sure that the oil stayed hot throughout the "sliding into the cart" part. if it hits cool it will stop and clog, took a few tries but you'll get it
