    Altho the real TCR is probably slightly lower I'm actually using 185
    Max power 40w
    Read the cold resistance and subtract .008 for the v1 or .012 for my 19/19 waitlister
    Enable PID mode
    Vaping around 190 degrees C

    If that's not right ....
    Increasing the resistance will increase the temp of the coil (and vice versa)
    Increasing the TCR will also increase the temp too but as the TCR is the rate of change of temp with resistance it will effect the temp change you get when you increase the vaping temp so adding say 10 degrees on-screen may be adding more or less than 10 degrees to the vaping temp.

    With those 2 rules in mind I've successfully used TCR values from 150 - 200 altho i think the real value is in the region of about 180 - 185 for best results.

    I haven't played with the TC on my DNA, but I can say that it works much better in wattage mode than any of my other mods .I'm using a Rebel Vape DNA75C,and I'm getting really good results at around 30-33 watts. Still trying to dial it in, but having so much better results.

    I'll do my Walmart greeter act again and say that thing I always say:

    Install the ecigprofile from this page for effortless TC on your dna. I start around 355 and finish around 385°.

    Tried this out last night. Great session, got pretty even abv even without turning the stem. Noticable changes in temp from 350, to 360, all the way up to 390F. Def gonna go back to TC, especially when introducing to friends.

    Noob question about FJ: my temp increases in chunks of 10F (if I press +, temp goes from 350 to 360F). Is there a way to get smaller temp steps?

    Yes
    Open the menu and goto interface and enable 1C5F to enable 1 degree C and 5 degree F increments

    I tried as well. First time I got evenly vaped stem without turning. And thank you about the wattage change from 10 to one as well. I am going to play with it some more cuz I still want that initial biiig first hit but am very happy with the results!

    Yeah it is interesting, I'm going like 325 to 398F (if not later at night) using the Z profile @bossman linked on my V2, no stirring needed (I do once for taste if I can) and the way the HSA heater gets heat soaked still comes through if you session it more. On demand just needs a little preheat if you want to get closer to the displayed temp and/or a slower draw. It just works really well whichever way though and I am kinda still in awe lol

    Back in a splinter form after having let go of my milaana and zion. Moved on to other controlled convection vapes but always wanted to have one rbt product in the stable. Only playing in VW mode atm, but this China V1 is pretty sweet. Short air path is causing some lung issues for me. Will need to find a cooling stem or keep this as a WPA only device. Love that I can have a rbt heater in such a small form.

    I’m considering buying a Splinter V2. Which glass stems would you recommend aside from the stock? How would I connect this bad boy to my glass rig? I see they only have 19mm male adapter. My rig is only 18MM.

    Buy the M2M 19mm adapter. The true size is 18.8mm which some retailers call 18mm and others call 19mm.

    Yup, that's the right size to get. I would also recommend grabbing one of the cooling stems for use dry, even the jr is pretty amazing compared to stock short stems. There are a lot of stem options now, but those two would be the first to get imo (wood stems can be nice too)

    Does anyone's splinter whistle when draw air through? I have a two hole china v1. Mine does, wondering if this is common. I'm in the honeymoon stage with it. My drawing technique that seems to work best with it is similar to how I used to work my old VXL evo that whistled. It seems like if keep it right under the whistling noise, I have a better vapor production/experience.

    Never experienced this with other rbt products, so it's a bit annoying right now.

    This happens on mine at times, though I can’t say if it’s my RBT vapes or the different stems. I think it has to do with very slight imperfections in the glass and/or placement of the screen in the stem.

    Whistle is just dependent on how you draw really, if it is truly bothersome then you may need to draw slower I think

    I’ve recently made the switch to vaping from combusting. Nearly two decades of smoking, I’m starting to have respiratory issues. After my first purchase, Solo 2, VAS quickly set in and I ended up with a Splinter (on a bronze dna 250).

    I went with the splinter due to wanting to try on demand convection, in addition to seeking a vape that allowed me to get big hits. The Solo 2 is great, but for me it seemed to lack in “extraction rate”; takes a while to finish a bowl, albeit super tasty.

    I’m finding the Splinter gives me the big hits I was looking for but it is killing my lungs and throat. I’ve since purchased the Xl8r cooling stems and find it helps, but it still is affecting me pretty bad. I really didn’t want to run it through water, but is that my solution? I guess this comes with the territory for 18mm convection units (hot vapor) after reading another thread comparing them. Any tips or suggestions? For those that have experience with a variety of vapes, any other vapes I should consider that may be less harsh for me but still retain fast extraction, ie big rips.

    Thanks to anyone that read this far. Appreciate all the input I’ve received thus far from a few FC’ers.

    Has anyone who ordered a wisemec during the sale a few days ago get shipping information yet? I ordered 4 days ago and it still says processing, I realize the likely had a large volume of orders due to the sale but 4 days seems a bit long, doesn't it?

    I find the vape of the RBT devices quite harsh for throat and mouth too. Nearly unusable for me with the original short stems.

    Beside the Xl8er, which I like very much and gives me enough cooling mostly, you could try a J-Hook or the cooling mouthpiece from Easy Flow, Vapefiend is selling. These are a little bit clumsy to clean and not perfect for vaping outside/on the go, but I find them to give the most effective cooling.

    I have been looking at the cooling stems as well, but water is really the only way to effectively reduce the heat that comes with high air flow vapes like RBT vapes. I do all of my vaping at home through water, whatever vape I use. It just plainly allows me to get bigger hits which I want. There are LOTS of choices in water pieces from small to huge, but some kind of water piece really makes the difference for me. And RBT vapes have the air flow that makes larger pieces quite enjoyable.
    I ordered from AliExpress and they showed on their parent page that nothing would be shipped before 2/14 due to the holiday. They stated "Everything" will ship on that day (tomorrow), but I doubt they can ship a couple weeks of orders on one day.

    Nice! I wish Splinter was around back when I got going with my Solo, maybe wouldn't have ended up with so many vapes now... Yeah heavy use can do that, cooling stems are working well for me so far, but I also really like bent stems. Also a whip can actually be smoother than through water even. And the RBT drydrotube, along with other vapor coolers... Hemp fiber filters work too
