I spread my coils apart so they filled the space more.Hi, Its filled all the way with balls. I do a few bowls at 600 f a few mins apart and its perfect, then I go back an hour later and something isn't right, not nearly the same. So I went up to 640 and still not vaping the same as my first few bowls upon startup. It may have to do with the coil fitting, what do you suggest? I had to bend mine slightly to fit it snug. My wraps are all touching each other, should I spread em apart?
That seems a bit high for room temp.good question never thought about that, I believe like 150 to 200 and something F
I have autotuned a few times, its excellent then after a bit not working the same. besides auto tune what settings can I check or change?Mine reads room temp. Yours is way offso you would need to set to 750 to = 600.
Or check settings and autotune.
thats one thing I did not mention. my original ac power plug lost the third prong so I am using another random one, could this be the issue?I love the new injector with the B1 head.
BTW: I once had an Auber PID issue that was a fault in the plug in the power adapter into the Auber. I had to send the unit back to figure out and they sent a new power adapter. I had some weird flakey behavior before it finally cut out all together. Maybe it's similar?
Cool, I'm not using the original one (that the ground fell out of) I'm using a different brand new one that came from something else. Trying a third new cable and I spread the coil wraps a bit.Worth trying
The sensor wires are a twisted pair, so a ground would be a good thing.
@David Root This is my backup power cable I have on hand, it should be good for the legacy NV PID I am thinking.Cool, I'm not using the original one (that the ground fell out of) I'm using a different brand new one that came from something else.

Thanks for the help David, that's what I thought. I am looking at every angle. It does power the PID without issue (I have that I-sheng I posted above). I spread my coil wraps a bit and will test this week.From what I see, any computer cord would work. Can you try one before buying? Rob one from a computer?
Same. The temp should reflect the reading of the PID of the Ti coil when the electricity starts flowing. I leave mine on all day except for long periods I'm out of the house and like others - mine reads in the 60's or 70's based on ambient air temp. If it's reading that hot - could that be a PID issue?When I turn on my B1 the temp usual reflects that of the room (68-74). Sometimes it will be higher if I turn it off and then turn it back on before it can fully cool down but that's obviously to be expected.
I 2nd all of this, as I've yet to combust with mine. The other differing variable is temp...I don't know how you guys are getting milky hits in the 500s as I have to run like 670 with my B1 ID for instant vapor with little effort. I'm running an auber and my glass has a smaller mouthpiece diameter, might have to try a new rigThe B1 with the injector bottom is incredible. Honestly, it's the most amazing vape I've tried. I can't wait to try other injector ball vapes. I have the PID set at 520 (I very from 496 to 520).
Using a 1/8th teaspoon for loading the Elev8r bowl. Haven't weighed it so I'm not sure but a pretty small load.
First hit - two seconds and the whole glass piece is thick milk. Almost instantaneous. Crazy. I pull the injector out after 4 or 5 seconds and draw out all the vapor. That's just about all my lungs can handle with out coughing. WOw. The second hit is almost the same.
The cool thing about 3rd or 4th hits is the vapor production really falls off but the material doesn't keep getting more roasted. It's like it reaches a max roasting temp and there is simply nothing left. Every other vape I've tried continues to roast the material darker and darker even if it's regulated to a specific temp. I love how this vape functions. I assume the max vaping temp is a function of PID temp, draw speed, and a few other variables. Means I should be able to easily adjust the roasting by adjusting the temp. I've done this and it works perfectly.
If you haven't tried this setup or haven't tried a ball vape, I can only say from my experience it's amazing. I'm excited to try a whole bunch more.

My situation is figured out, some people in the community here were helpful and that's much appreciated @David Root . I'm down to like 530 Fahrenheit and getting excellent results, for me as a few others have noted it was a matter of spreading out my coil a bit, I actually spread it a little too much possibly as it was a bit hard to get the B1 head on, but it did screw in fully with no gaps and I am able to get it off.Having trouble with my new b1 and my legacy newvape pid and coil. I tuned it to 600 F and for a few bowls its absolutely perfect, but then after a bit of time it does not hit well. I shut down and cool down then the same, first few bowls amazing then noticeably less vapor after a little bit. I did have to bend my coil slightly to fit the b1 head.
is there anything here I should do? https://www.cannabishardware.com/pages/flowerpot-faq-page
I have tuned a couple times now, just not sure if there is a full reset of the pid, thanks in advance. I also have my eye on the auber, I may just upgrade
Thanks for posting this. While I have been aware of the spreading the coil situation, It has never been an issue with performance, but rather some folks get annoyed with how sometimes the piece is a little loose on the coil. But if it is more related to performance, I will include in tech. For sure.

Excellent function now all day long.
@Chris_CH it took me a bunch of trial and error to figure this situation out and it looks like it may have been the same for others, you may want to add this to your tech support to help people in future as at first I was really curious as to why it was not working properly and about to buy a new controller and coil (which I don't really need). I was starting to get frustrated for sure. But as always a great piece of gear and you did respond to my support emails to try and help but spreading the coil never came up. I know you have a YouTube video about spreading the coil for the V-Rod but this may be very helpful for people to be included in your tech support. Next I'll probably grab an injector for my B1 with some glass bowls instead of buying a new controller, so in the end I'm very happy. Peace love and cannabis
Yup! thats right!Thank you Chris, that's why I wanted to post to be helpful , with new tech it's hard to know everything that's going on for sure. But if my little story can help one person it makes me happy, you did offer great support and tried helping in any way you could with quick responses to emails, much appreciated. I'm about to buy the injector infuser (3417) and an elv8 bowl on your site, I just bought the B1 a few weeks ago, so this can replace my bottom part so I can do injection style correct? Thanks again man.
