    One more question- on the Veco tank, I am assuming you set the resistance to 0.5 and you said the watts should be 25-35W?

    What should the temperature be set at? I have the Pico 21700 mod

    Thanks again

    I think they're closer to 1ohm, what do you get when you measure them on the pico? I think I saw somewhere that a lot of people use .9ohm. Yes watts should be between 25 - 35

    For temp most of us use 400F.

    Thanks,
    I actually haven’t put it on the Pico yet, because haven’t made he juice yet.

    SS316 coil is offered in .3, .5, .6, and .9 ohm I believe. I use the .5 mainly because it offers the lowest wattage of 25-35 watts. The .6 ohm wattage range i.e. is higher like 45-55, and that's just unnecessary unless you like inefficiently using your material of course.

    One thing to clarify there, that only holds true on the wattage if your voltage is set and unchangeable. A .5ohm cart at 25W is running at about 3.5v ... A 1ohm cart can run at 25W, just at about 5v.

    I have found that some of the firmware is better than others at understanding this concept, however ;) And maybe just because of my heatsinks I can't get temp mode to work consistently so I just use power most of the time. I did order one of those theiron vapes that @VapeCritic recommends...so hopefully it will work better.

    The coils I got are the EUC SS316 .5 OHM 25-35 W I have the SAI With titanium bucket on my mod, and that’s set in temp mode at 440 Degrees F in temp mode.
    I was gonna set this coil to 400 degrees and about 25 Watts. Haven’t set it up yet


    Thanks

    I keep posting this...KandyPens Rubi pods accept and easily vape Shatter with no added ANYTHING! Take a chunk, roll it up, stick it in with your poker of choice. When you’ve got some in, vape it. No leak with the more solid shatter. It doesn’t darken and you get the actual flavor. I’m vaping DawgsWaltz atm. Yummmmm!

    This is a good point, here is what my readings are for clarification. I have a variable wattage device so it's going to automatically adjust the voltage for the increased wattage.

    1. 25 watts
    a. 3.5 volts
    b. .49 ohms reading
    2. 35 watts
    a. 4.14 volts
    b. .49 ohms reading

    I just want to come here and say I was able to successfully mix my concentrates with Connisseur Concentrates Skywalker OG. It ended up being a little thick. I starts with .4 ml of CC to my 1g of shatter, and had to keep adding CC to thin it down.

    I have the Veco One tank which is a 2ml tank, so the juice only makes it to a little less then halfway. I’m thinking next time I’ll need more CC to thin it down more. It tastes great and is plenty strong.

    Glad to hear you like your results. The only reason I advise against adding more than .4ml, is personally the taste is less desirable the more that is added. Of course results will vary depending on the concentrate, so it could be simply you need something like .6ml i.e. to get the same viscosity that I get.

    Aside from taste there's not really any other disadvantages with adding more, although terps are known to cause more irritation so this is another reason to avoid adding more than is necessary.

    so the juice only makes it to a little less then halfwaybkrieger

    Yeah when you only add .4ml it's really only going to be around 1ml still per 1 gram. It's difficult to calculate exactly how much liquid you will get, but in general 1 gram using small amounts of terps is roughly 1ml as you noticed. This is why it's going to be more potent than anything really, honestly the Veco is going to be overkill for most people.

    I can go for about 5 seconds at 25 watts, but then start coughing because it's so potent, the equivalent of dabbing in my opinion but in your pocket. Also, the Veco tanks even come in 4ml. Although that's too large for me, because changing flavors i.e. isn't as easy then, and you will have more potential waste when changing. However if you plan on using the same flavor and mixer, then you can last an incredibly long time with the massive 4ml. Another great advantage of the Veco is the coil can be changed with the liquid still in it, just make sure to tip it upside down obviously.

    Thanks for the detailed explanations. Yes, it is potent, but that’s what I like. I have the 2 ML Veco. If I ha e to calculate and buy more oil to fill the tank, I’m fine with that. I’m also fine with using only .4 ml, but I think part of the problem is I wasted some of the mix because it was so thick and I had tbise cheap 2ml I dropper pipettes and some of the mix due to it being too thick wouldn’t come out of these pipettes all the way. I also tried the eye dropper hat came with the terpenes and it wouldn’t pick up the liquid due to its thickness.
    I need to find a device to pick up thick liquid like one of those electronic pipettes.

    Overall, I’m happy for my first attempt with the end result.

    Thanks

    Also to follow up on the Veco tank, I think it’s awesome. The 2ml is a good size. It would be good to be able to change the coil without losing any juice. I haven’t figured out how to do that yet.

    Right now, I have the Skywalker OG, but I may want to try different flavors in the future to see what tastes better.

    Thanks for all the instructions and help, I did this mostly by reading your forum posts. Much appreciated.

    Like Baron23, my lungs are Sensitive (TRASHED), after vaping Nicotine E-juice for 2 days (not smoking Cigs) almost checked myself into the hospital...COULDN'T GET MY BREATH WITHOUT COUGHING, EVERY BREATH....GOT REALLY SCARY !!! Finally, got a breath Without the accompanying Cough. JEEEZZZZ ! Swore it was Over, seemingly staring Death from Asphyxiation in the face ! WOW ! NEVER AGAIN WILL I INHALE VG/PG. I had Noticed a smidgen of Congestion type feeling when Vaping E-juice, but, wrote it off as Bad Lungs (already knew that) and Vaping is going to be Better than Smoking cigs, so, I Continued....OMG, when you awaken to a congested lung you cough, usually Clears it, Not This Time.....Each time I took a breath, I had to cough Worse, after a few minute's, feels like I'm gonna PASS OUT, COUGH, INSTEAD OF BREATHING, INHALE, COUGH, INHALE, COUGH, EACH INHALE GETTING SMALLER AS EACH COUGH GOT MORE INTENSE.....FLAT OUT SCARED..........FOXHOLE PRAYERS FLOWING FROM MY MOUTH, BETWEEN GASPS FOR AIR !
    Finally, I got to Keep a breath without having to Cough it out.....! Disposed of ALL E-JUICE POISON, NEVER to have let it touch my lips since. As I Continue to smoke Cigs and Vape Eucalyptus, have Never had that SMOTHERING SENSATION REOCCUR !
    LIPID PNEUMONIA IS REAL !
    PG/VG IS POISON ! BE CAREFUL!

    Not sure if you saw the countless posts in this thread from me about the plethora of studies that routinely demonstrate how toxic PG, PEG and VG all are. Each of the chemicals simply produce toxins when heated, so that's why we only recommend terpene based solutions here. The terpenes used you would be inhaling with normal flowers anyways, however the higher total percentage the terpenes comprise of the liquid, generally the more irritable it can be as well. The best liquidizer will be a concentrate that's already almost in liquid form, and preferably the concentrate will be created to be a liquid viscosity for e liquid carts...

    Any additives are a disadvantage to the pure concentrate, some will argue it can mask the smell. Generally PG is necessary for that so have to think what's more important for you, not smelling like a skunk, or not breathing in stuff that is well known to be toxic? I'm glad to vape on the potent terp based concentrate I mix, to avoid all the garbage known as PG, PEG and VG. I love how some companies write out polyethylene glycol 400 as if that's somehow different from PEG, which is known to be even more toxic than PG if you can believe. VG is even said to cause lipid pneumonia, of course there has yet to be a report I've ever seen of that.

    Do you know why people started vaping PG in the first place? "Well Bob, PG (propylene glycol) is FDA approved for inhaler use." Case closed. That's interesting logic, so by using an inhaler that also means you can heat it to any temperature safely? Well testing continues to show otherwise, even terpenes are now shown to produce toxins over 600F in dabbing. I'm sure there's someone thinking you breath more garbage walking down the street, which is probably true. Still, I certainly wouldn't pay someone to contaminate my concentrate. If anyone really likes using that garbage, just buy the USP grade glycols available on Amazon. At least you're not getting ripped off now, the PEG is what absorbs the THC, remember PG simply homogenizes like water in oil so separation is inevitable with these sub par "liquidizers".
