continuation of fuckcombustion thread TETRAx

the TETRAx is 510 threaded and works best coupled with tubomyevic firmware, distributed on shop.lamart.ch. it can also work with other TC mods/modes or in power/wattage mode.



introducing the TETRA heater consisting of 4 borosilicate glass tubes and 4 stainless steel 316L coils (instead of 3 in TUBOevic/-x heaters). the heater can be found in the TETRAx which is substituting for the TUBOx.

Its about time i show off my Tetrax goodies.

After about 13 different vaporizers the Tetrax and Dynavaps are the only ones that seem to really keep my interest.
I love the versatility of the Tetrax. (All my stems have both a deep screen and a basket so bowl size can be big or small depending on my desired effect.) On top of the insane flavor this gets without being difficult to use. Both the nub and bent spikey mouthpiece have worked great! Nub gets a bit warm but with the tiny size I cannot be upset.

I enjoy this vape so much I grabbed another one on the 420 sale. Hoping it shows up soon!

I've been using my TETRAx for about a week now, and I think the resistance might be miscalibrated.

I originally set it to what the little piece of paper said: 0.217. However, I never really got visible vapor until I pumped the temperature up to around 225-230 C. I've gotten it as high as 255 C without combustion so far!

Any advice about how to dial in the resistance?

Thanks

TUBO seems to run cold
Increase the resistance in ‘menu>coils>manage>TCR’ by 0.002. Make sure the lock symbol is after the number before you leave. repeat if necessary.

Just try it, maybe just make it right to 0.2175 and try ?
I ended up raising it from the default 0.217 all the way up to 0.227 (5 steps of raising it by two clicks). Now it produces visible vapor at around 190-195 C. Is that the expected temp for visible vapor?

Thanks

Yeah, If you go higher to 230C with a bong you'll feel the deeper effects. but start from 200C to see if it's ok

What's the exact sizing of the TUBOx ? Good friend of mine can make some 3d printed protective case for it

Actually, I think they were all prebuilt TetraX's on 4/20 relesse, so yours should have shipped at the same time as mine unless you had some kind of customization added
What was your ship date? Mine was april 28 no tracking.

I finally received 1 of my 3 or 4 orders I’ve done lol.
Wow, nice package. Wenge X with black&white power cord, great combo, Oak X 0.246R, couple of nice beech stash boxes, the carbed tube wpa is so much better than the basic wpa, thicker glass. But claptons for the Xs, that's interesting.

I ended up setting the resistance to 0.233 (versus the 0.217 in the paper that came with my TETRAx). With that, I see vapor being produced starting at 195-200 C.

Is it normal for the correct resistance to be so much higher than the factory spec?

BTW, my throat still gets pretty sore after a session with the TETRAx + spiked bent stem. My wife also coughs a lot if she takes a few big hits. Is that also common?

Thanks

yeah it's only like 7% higher, it's ok
your throat doesn't like the organic gas until it get used to it like after 1-2 monthes
220C+ you'll need a bubbler ;)

When I first got my Tetra P80 I was initially struggling to get decent hits at what I considered to be ‘normal’ temperature settings, so I went down the route of increasing the resistance setting. I mentioned this to Ralph and his response was...

“Changing the resistance is also messing with warmup time and eco features, I recommend working with the temp dial mostly if you need it to be hotter. The device is calibrated so it supplies the displayed temp 5mm above the internal screen in the stems. When using it on demand it takes 2-3 draws for the heater to supplied this level of heat. You can use the warmup mode or let cruise run for 20 seconds for it to warmup a bit before your first draw”
