    Start at like 4 or 5 Watts and move up if you need.

    This is going to sound stupid probably, but how do I know if I need to move up? I tried a higher wattage than that, and it seemed fine but I have no clue. The Clieto tank is rated for 20-40 watts. I think I tried lower 20's and I didn't get any burnt taste but I didn't take many hits and they were short puffs.

    Did you empty the prefilled cart into your clieto tank or are you using the prefilled cart?

    You should be able to get an atomizer resistance reading on the cart if so. Just to put things into perspective, the standard lithium ecig batteries are 4.2V when fully charged. With a 1.5 ohm tank without variable voltage and watts, the watts will start out at 11.8 watts and slowly drop as the voltage of the battery drops as you use it.

    Personally, I would keep it at around 5 watts, but I tried them out on my variable voltage device and ran it at 8 watts and was puffing fine. The problem with burning the wick, as you probably know, once that's done, the atomizer is basically trash and you'll have to move that liquid to another tank.

    I am using the Clieto tank. I did buy extra coils in case but I won't really use this option of delivery too often so I am not as worried with burning out a coil. I just don't really use it enough to really figure out what the sweet spot would be. I much more prefer strong concentrates like BHO wax or Live Resin shatter, but I do want to be able to use this to supplement when I am not able to get away from crowded places or just as a back up in general. I just wanted to have an idea of where to start and how I might now I'm getting better or worse performance before I just burn out a coil.

    Higher watts seems to medicate faster, probably because it's delivering a more dense hit. You'll find your sweet spot, but best to keep it on the low side as you'll have less problems. These coils hang on to a bit of the precious cjuice, something else to consider if you end up swapping coils.

    You must have either compromised the atomizer or put the Spliffin cart on the wrong battery.

    "The Clear" has been branching out their product line(s), now they change the name from Clear to the new 'boutique' line? "extra virgin" just like olive oil...and maybe just as many fakes as so-called 'extra virgin' olive oils.

    Supposedly BrassKnuckles was created by former Heavy Hitter's members. HH carts tasted chemical to me, but I tried the BK and they are good...but...so damned runny (just tilt Tangie from side to side, don't need to invert) that it moves in the cart with the slightest change in angle. That runny, excepting adding 20% terps, which is unlikely; makes me worry they have added PG/VG/PEG to the mix). Bad part of a glass cartridge, is if you have tile in the bathroom or any hard surface...drop them, and they break *very* easily...money down the drain!

    Spliffin carts are some the best I have tasted, coil works well, hits very hard; too hard for inexperienced users...big clouds. Spliff currently, have clear *plastic*, not glass<<<found out when I tried to heat up the remaining dregs with a disposable lighter, like you can do to the Honeyvape carts that are filled with very thick oil.

    I tried Xtracology carts late '15, not much difference btw those and same cart design in the 710 King Pen/Loud Pack carts.

    I know Rumpwax did some carts back in '15, but I was never able to find them.

    Tried so many of the Shattertanks™ @HTCC April '16, but did not think so much of them as they are top-price $60-75ea.
