We at FTP were beating our heads against a wall (figuratively) trying to make a super-high-potency uncut cartridge vapeable. Problem was that CBD really wants to crystallize at concentrations over 60%, which meant that our X2 was about the end of the line in terms of cartridge strength.
We grappled with this problem for almost a year.
We had a breakthrough.
This bad boy is the grooviest 510-thread-compatible cartridge battery you’ll ever see. It’s got all the main features of our super-rad FTP Elite battery PLUS an awesome warming chamber that ensures even the thickest, most crystallized cartridges can flow and provide a consistent vaping experience.
You can use the EliteHEAT™ with any 510-thread cartridge as a premium battery with multiple voltages and a preheat setting, but where it really shines is that warming chamber.
Try it and you’ll see for yourself!
Instructions for vaping X3
- X3 cartridge (full or half gram)
- EliteHEAT™ battery
- Preheat chamber (separated from battery)
Step 1: Turn on the battery, if it’s not on already. Click the button 5 times really fast (one-two-three-four-five, within 1 second).
Step 2: Ensure the battery is set to the correct voltage setting – we recommend starting with white and going up from there. To cycle voltages, triple-tap the button (one-two-three, within 1 second): White >>> Blue >>> Green >>> Red >>> reset (White)
Step 3: Screw the cartridge onto the battery threads. Make sure the airflow holes are open (this is muy importante).
Step 4: Slide the preheat chamber over the cartridge and screw it onto the battery.
Step 5: If the wax is solid – looks like tiny rock candy crystals, doesn’t flow at all – DO NOT PANIC; this is what you got the EliteHEAT™ for.
Double-tap the button to start a preheat cycle, which lasts for 90 seconds if you let it do its thing. You’ll see the color change on the button as it goes – this is the voltage increasing every 30 seconds to fully heat the cartridge. So cool, right?!
If the weather is cold, the A/C is bumping, or you’re in a walk-in refrigerator (we don’t judge) you might actually want a second warming cycle to fully liquefy the X3. This is some gnarly-thick wax, it’s just the nature of the beast. Still beats sitting there with a hair dryer.
Step 6: It’s vaping time! Hold down the button while inhaling through the cartridge tip. If this is your first X3, start with SMALL PUFFS. Again…gnarly-thick wax. Treat it with respect.
Step 7 (optional): Once you’re done, turn off the battery by repeating step 1.
