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.
I've just switched from a generic battery I bought at my local dispensary to an eVic Basic for some evolab cartridges and more importantly a Divine Tribute V3 to use with concentrates. I feel pretty overwhelmed by the amount of settings the Basic has and want to understand how to use it (and not have it explode in my face) before it arrives. All of the tutorials online are for people using vape juice and I don't think it's a direct correlation. I emailed evolab to see if they have any advice for me, so I'll see what they say.
The eVic Basic has the following settings: Temp, TCR, Power and Bypass modes (I believe that I'll avoid the last two settings). Anyone have one of these devices or a mod box that uses the same OS from Joyetech? Anyone willing to help out a n00b?
@cloudblower Hi. I bought granddaughter a Smok Alien as a way to get the stupid heart patient off cigs. It overwhelmed her with the multiple settings, cleaning and use so I took it back and set on shelf. I saw the DT Weed accessory for $24 so figured what the hell and ordered. I have it. I have usd it. The settings I used are from the video (M1, 350 degrees,35 watts) and I can get one hit of true vapor and several follow ups of undetermined quality. I dump chamber and very dark duff. I haven't complained because it is so minor an expense and it gives life to something I have no use for. I tried bud, medium and fine grind. I have increased watts to 50 for a bitter hit. It reminds me of my NO2 that while it works (vapor) chamber is too small and constant fiddling required for those of us with "higher" needs. Other folks like it. I don't want to piss in their punch. I just use other vapes more to my needs and preferences. It worked, just not enough for Sir Piggy (myself.) If anyone reading has "Why you idiot, this is what you do!" advise I would love it. I put prefilled cart on it and get good results but I prefer flowers. Just do. ( I hate to beg even from a plant)
tltr Lots of different vapes, get what suits you.
Hi @cloudblower, I'm in the same situation you are in, go to the DT thread, a lot of knowledgeable folks there willing to help.
To learn about settings, start on page 92 that's my recommendation.
I have the Evic Basic. I tried to do what you want to do and couldn't find any videos either, but honestly it's easier to figure out when it's right in front of you. 5 clicks to turn on/off
Turn on, 3 clicks to get to the edit screen. Use the temp buttons on the bottom of the unit to navigate the menu and put in TCR mode. I'm using my DTV3 @ TCR 300 30w 370-420 on the large donut.
To set custom TCR the unit has to be off (5 clicks)
Then hold the fire button and the right button (on the bottom of the unit) until the TCR screen pops up so you can make your adjustments. 5 clicks to get out of this mode and back to the main menu. It's actually really easy once you get used to how to navigate with the two bottom buttons.
Not sure what you should run your cartridges at, but I imagine you would run them in watts mode and start real low and work your way up til you find a happy medium.
