I was pleased to see mine in the above IG post but secretly wanted it to be a surprise.
So if I understand this correctly.... the heater modules are the temperature regulators? They each have a set temperature? Or does draw speed have an effect as well; making it more of a temperature range?Another very nice feature are the different heater modules. The first batch comes with both the med and high heater modules which should be as easy to change as the battery.
Mom, I'm pretty sure that this is an unregulated vape like the Milaana and hence draw speed, time holding down the power button, adjustable airflow (to a degree), etc all come into play in determining temp of air hitting the load.So if I understand this correctly.... the heater modules are the temperature regulators?

Edit: i just focused.... lol my coffee just kicked in... I saw this blurb on the IG post linked, "A set screw allows the user to micro adjust the tightness of the spiral, changing the airflow characteristics."
So I would think that air flow, along with the tightness of the spiral. has a lot to do with the temperature range you can get.

HI GreenHopper, Pray tell, heat modules/ heat profiles?

Low-Med heat modules.
Medium - High Heat modules.
Dan Morrison said:Resistance is 0.6 ohm. Which means this will run anywhere around 20-30 Watts depending on battery voltage, and pull a max of 7 amps. I've found this to be a great middle of the road heater module. Heat up time is ~2 seconds.
This HM is still powerful enough to overpower a strong draw speed, but slow and cool enough to keep it under control and easily avoid scorching.
A slower/cooler HM is definitely possible, and would give more control to newbies in group sessions.

Personally I am starting to like the heaters that I can hold the trigger down constantly, and regulate temperature with draw speed only. Meaning, the surface area is great enough that the heat can be taken away faster than it can accumulate. I can overpower the heater with a fast draw speed.
This sort of heater will start out, on a fresh 4.2v battery, being able to overpower draw speed, just barely. Meaning that if I keep holding the fire button down, I will eventually scorch the load, even at a fast draw speed.
But by the time the battery has settled down around 3.7v, a medium draw speed is required for proper temperature. A fast draw speed can over-power the heater and give a temp that's too low.
With medium draw speed, you can have the fire button on for the entire draw.
Because I like vaping pipe tobacco, I prefer a slower draw speed, I feel like this gives the thick flavourful vapor I expect to get from a pipe, more time for the vapour to flowww out and move around the mouth.
This style also seems to be best for newcomers, and in group sessions, very easy to control and get the correct temp without overshooting, no fire button modulation required.
But I can definitely see the advantage of a heater that is NOT overpowered by draw speed, even at 3.7v. For more experienced users. At 3.7v, this will act more like the above heater at 4.2v.
