so we can just buy what the magna carta and the crimson carta has that the regular carta doesn’t have separately? I haven’t quite followed. :/

Outside of body color:
The magna (and white) kits included the dry herb atty, and rebuild kit.
those are available separately.
The Crimson includes the SIC insert, ceramic cups, and everlast atomizer.
those are also available separately.
However- the crimson has had adjustments made to the STOCK body temps (when adjusting using the button on device, not the app)
These changes are to "help performance when using exotic materials (sic) with the everlast atty". The changes also reduces battery charge life.
so the Crimson is basically a stock Carta with a new coat of paint and a small tweek to horsepower.


Since i received the Crimson (everlast), I have only used the sic insert in it. no cap issues yet, and i screw it all the way on (don't like the air bypass when its loose). I have the ceramic in the OG (v2 atty), also no cap issues yet.
I will stick to this set up and report if/when issues occur.
130 dabs in and still no cracking or melting of stock lid.
(i'll say 120, when new I tried all the buckets before starting experiment)
level 2 and 3 body temps used.
lid just snugged down to prevent air bypass
Quick steam clean after every use.
the steam clean may be helping reduce heat at the cap.

My Crimson n Helix top arrived yesterday. Got the OG one back on 4:20, I came on here after first ordering it, and initially was pretty nervous after reading all the horror stories on dead units n busted attys, but when it finally came I was totally blown away by the milky fat hits i was getting, n that original atty is still goin strong. the original performed so well, i scooped up a Magna w/ all the extra attys n rebuild kit. After that i figured I was set on the Carta, but after the Crimson came out, with the everlast n SiC insert I decided to pick one up (gonna unload my og blk/wht now). It arrived yesterday, w/ my new Helix top. To compare it to the Magna n OG, I pushed over a Gram thru it last night...

first impressions of the Crimson...
I definitely noticed the battery life went down faast! Usually on a fully charged Carta, i dont have to charge it again for the rest of the day.. however on the Crimson, i got down to 1 light battery life after a few good sessions even after a full charge. The heat up n melt time is definitely longer, i dont have the app, n due to the longer heat up time w/ the SiC, by the time its finally milking fat, i only have time for a couple rips until the heat time ends, opposed to the instant cottonball milks of the OG n Magna. Usually on my Cartas, after 1 round on setting 2 or 3 even fatter dabs are totally vaped down w/ very little reclaim left over, but so far w/ the Crimson n Sic dish a good dab takes atleast 2-3 heat round to vape what the Magna does in 1. I LOVED my first 2 carta set ups, but so far have been a little disappointed in the Crimson. Another thing Ive noticed that is kind of a bummer about the Crimson is the glass. The 2 glass tops on my originals, were THICK n heavy duty, w/ a nice tight seal, but w/ my Crimson, the glass is half as thick as my originals n weighs a lot less. It gets so thin towards the mouth piece, its starts going clear. The seal is quite loose too, on my Magna the glass fits so snug its actually hard to take off. The crimson glass is fitting real loose n wiggles around when I touch it. The color looks really nice, but I have reservations on how long that coat will last. 1 iso wipe yesterday had the wipe completely red, so that paint may not last the life of the unit. So far if I could do it again, id prob just stick to my 2 originals n not have scooped up the Crimson. I imagine the app n adjusting the sesh time could up its performance, cus stock out of the box just doesnt heat long enough for the SiC.
What’s this thing like with tacky concentrates and live resin? Is it difficult to load properly? I’ve seen stuff about having the load creep up the walls and onto the heating element? It’s particularly for live resin I want it.
I just use 2 dabbers, one to scoop the jar, n one to scrape off the dabber into the cup.

Hi, quick question for any carta users.. I bought my crimson carta about a week ago and love it but feel like the battery life is kinda shit.. lol. I use the quartz cup on the first setting at 45 seconds and I get maybe 10 dabs from it.. is that the norm?

Have several people been receiving glass caps? I have not received any notification about them being sent yet, and I have sent messages inquiring and have not received a reply...

Just got my Crimson carta, I feel like this is a lot of tech compared to my filthy quartz banger LOL do you all clean your bucket after each dab? Will the hot bucket burn the ISO off the q tip? Any good tips or tricks to know about

I have the crimson carta also. Is great! I use the quartz cup on either 1 or 2 and qtip if directly after each use. Sometimes with iso sometimes just with a little water . Both work good. Doing this I haven't had any mess on or around my atty.
