The V5 has been a huge hit this New Years. I’ve gotten 5 different people sufficiently medicated throughout this lovely evening, all with some lovely live resins and crumbles
you on discord? you can get help real fast over there on the DT server.So I did manage to get arctic fox loaded on my Joyetec evic mini and set it up for the V5. I have been getting some good hits with it set on a 60 sec autofire. Based on settings that I read somewhere I have it currently set at tcr 180, 36w and 420F. I was hoping to get the hits to be a bit cooler on the throat. Is it as simple as lowering the temp from 420F or should I be messing with the other values first?
First, before you decide on which TCR value to set, do the 'cotton test' as I have described here: https://fuckcombustion.com/threads/divine-tribe-attys.14455/post-1615816, and see what TCR value turns your q-tip turns a golden brown when swirling on a hot cup set at 35w and 470 F. Try between TCR 170-220.I was hoping to get the hits to be a bit cooler on the throat
This is great advice, thank you DJ. I use a v4 with the SIC cup, so have completely different values and settings; however, your point that WHAT you’re vaping makes a difference is 100% true. I primarily use live resins, some rosins (can’t usually afford those), and CBD resins and rosins. I lower temps for rosins, but some strains are just smoother or harsher than others. I’ve had different batches of CBD rosin from the same company that vape differently, even though the lab reports are within a margin of error’s worth of difference on cannabinoid and terpene contents.First, before you decide on which TCR value to set, do the 'cotton test' as I have described here: https://fuckcombustion.com/threads/divine-tribe-attys.14455/post-1615816, and see what TCR value turns your q-tip turns a golden brown when swirling on a hot cup set at 35w and 470 F.

Some users are using temps as low as 340. Experiment, see what you like. The TCR value will also change how quickly it vapes and how hot.
However, more times than not, I have found that WHAT your vaping makes a HUGE difference.
For example ,some low quality concentrates will char more easily, and some will give you a strong lung punch. Terpenes can play a large role in this. Some terpenes are actually quite caustic, and cause our lung linings to react.
So set up your mod right, if you've eliminated that possibility, then try some concentrates like pure live rosin or some softer terpenes mixed in.
Excellent point !
Totally overlooked that water diffusion might not be being used.
Definitely a game changer on the lung capacity and smoothness. However, as you say, flavor can be muted a bit.
