Hmmm.....I’m guessing a Tubo gen 3 dual
Never have too many batteries!
Oh! Yes they may be the shorter ones, doesn't feel like there's much room by the intake screen, and I definitely wouldn't feel safe banging them in myself. My stems don't seem to it seal even without a basket screen, which is what made me think that the joint of the stems themselves needed to be sanded down? Something else I don't really feel so secure doing myself (if I knew someone who could do it I'd actually like to cut them down to 19mm ideally for use with other vapes as well)
I figured it was just variance in glass with the stems, or the female joint in the Tubo even, or maybe just the heater screen? There is a little gap so the screen could probably be placed a bit better but I'm not really sure how you would get it out and keep it intact and then how you would put it back? Hmm
I've got some medical tape at the top of the joint to help it seal, but yeah it is not so nice... All of my stems with shorter length joints fit securely at least. Those new stems are absolutely stunning, what a cool idea with the acrylic, and I've wanted one of @davesmith's custom bent stems for a while, any chance they can come in a 19mm length?!
Still working well otherwise, I actually got to see VtwoMini on its own with Mist, but yeah I've got a G3D that sure would love some Tubo as would my P80
Oh boy, Tubo still serving me well, so why am I so excited about that next thing?
I LOVE my Tubo and I'm ready to order whatever is coming next.
Maybe something with a DNA chip?
the first dual units of the new batch are built and are being sent out. what almost nobody knows is that they come with a new heater
introducing the TETRA heater:
the heater consists of 4 tubes and 4 coils. it is a performer and has earned its own name. i started a thread for the new TETRAx seen above. also as said TUBO DUALs will come with the TETRA (greek prefix for 4) heater.
hope you like
great reason to grab another!
You continue to impress sir!
The beast just got even more beastly
Ripping my vintage tri heater tubo right now and I gotta say that tetra looks dope. Gonna have to check the website...
My old Tobu evic is still with the same firmware as 2 years ago..
So i wanted to know of i should update it because i have some
I get “weak battery” for a second, already after one cruz eco session,
But i can do a few more sessions when it still warns me.
I do a 395 all the time and it can go up to 450 and combust when i continue the session..
Is this normal for true convection or is there something i can do to prevent temps from going more than i need to?
What's written in your resistance in the mod?
trying to check that out...
So- as you see i didn’t ever do any tweaking..
Can you recommend me fail safe prefs to set up my Tubo for optimum use? ( i usually do cruz sessions with eco no. 3 on 395)
Maybe there are other menu pages i should set up?
the reason for your tubo to behave like this is likely that your batteries are old and they are not able to supply the energy they used to have. had this myself and decided to treat myself to new ones early this year. back to original performance and bowl amount.
the difference is they get throttled down by the software to the power they can still supply, no harm in using them like this at all.
Ok i see.
If it’s no big deal then. I don’t really mind.
As i said above,
I would like someone to help me tweak the preferences to function better.
i dont understand this:
can you make a video of this behavior? when does it happen? so you let your temps always at 395 and enter cruise with ecolvl3, but temp sometimes climb up to 450? try to put ecolvl back to 0 and see if temperature also does this on its own.
since the heater is lowered to 135degC in ecolvl 3 it has to ramp up again to ~200degC when you hit it. if batteries are old and weak, they have trouble to quickly ramp the temperature back up and the PID will start to get super aggressive because it cant reach the setpoint in a timely manner. this results in a accumulation in the I term which will rise the temperature even beyond the set point. to solve this, either get new batteries, dont use ecolvl3 or lower the I value in menu>vaping>algo.
personally id replace my batteries if you like ecolvl3.
on second thought. update your firmware! in the newest version its programmed so that the I term gets reset when 10degC over setpoint. that should stop high temperatures. give it a try and report back!
i will do my tests tonight..
you're probably right about the batteries laziness, and the eco mode.
seems better now.
cruze eco mode 0, on fresh battery doing much better keeping it close around 395.
but the reason i wanted to solve this was the bit of combustion i got till now.
and this session it was the same even when kept at 395.
maybe i take rather long draws?
or maybe it has to do with the batteries?
Very nice... really liking this.
Just curious how it affects battery life at all? Quicker heatup and more stable temps I am guessing?
How do I get one?
edit: oh - just saw the tetraX thread
So...this means that if I buy a Tubo now, it will come with the TETRA heater, correct?
Could someone point me to an explanation of the dual? I have the original dual tubo but this one is clearly a separate vape.
The only difference is the heater now has four glass tubes with coils. Your original dual has three, like all the other Tubo's prior to now...
if u buy Tubo Evic now from web it's still with tubo heater not tetra, but tubo dual comes with tetra
Hmmm. I can't find anything that says Tubo Dual on the website. Does someone have a link that they'd care to share?
Or, is the Dual something that's not in full production yet?
Was only available as a custom, previously. Presently, with the lack of readily available evics, he is switching production to solely duals, afaik.
He just posted up this beauty on instagram. The absolute motherload of Tubo porn
Got it. Thanks for the info, as well as the link, @muunch
omg I don't know why I wasn't following this before! Such treasures, now I think I'm going to need a custom TetraDual
