Okay the honeymoon period ended rather rapidly, and with catastrophe.
I never liked the cruise mode. What's the point? You have to pulse the fire button most the time to stop the tiny bucket overflowing. I have never needed cruise. However I have activated it a few times by accident, burning the bucket and overflowing my dab.
Overall even with pulsing the fire button, my dab overflows 70% of the time. Then I lose some. When it works, it great. Super portable and great flavour.
Then the accident happened. My lightning pen went off in my rucksack in cruise mode. It was in a pouch and somehow it activated. It's fried. The fire button is melted and jammed. The pouch has slightly melted.
So will I buy a replacement? No.
I decided to buy a backup to my DTv5 - a CUB. I have been using my DTV5 more recently and it's way better. You can leave the dense oils, and just vape the good stuff. Zero overflows.
Will look out for the lightning pen 2. A slightly bigger bucket, no cruise mode and it could be a real winner.
