    Default Voltage-Wattage Settings on eVic Question

    I am confused about the settings on my eVic when it comes to wattage. I normally vape a 2.4-2.6 ohm T3 on my eVic. I am vaping fruit flavors and usually vape around 3.4ish volts. The eVic recommends 5.2 watts.

    Without explaining the formulas, can someone suggest the optimal voltage and wattage settings I should use. I also use the CE5+ and the clearos are 2.4-2.6 I believe so can I assume that the settings would be the same for those?

    The optimal voltage/wattage is subjective....it is the voltage/wattage that gives you the most flavor, most throat hit, and vapor production..
    Having used variable wattage for ages, I found mine at 8.4 watts.....ya might start at your current setting and just bump it up till you find your perfect vape....

    Thanks retird! I will try it leaving the voltage where it is and adjusting the wattage incrementally. It is pretty amazing already at 5.2 watts. The eVic really delivers a whole lot more than my twist at 3.4v & 5.2w.

    In case you're interested, PBusardo also has a second eVic video taking a quick look into the new firmware upgrade: A PBusardo Video - eVic Firmware Upgrade V1.1 Quick Look - YouTube

    Thanks Judge. It appears there has been a firmware update I need to download so I can use Variable Wattage instead of Variable Voltage. If I set the watts where I want it, it will automatically adjust the voltage and vice versa.

    This is a good PV IMO. It may not be a Provari or a Darwin but it is plenty of PV for me. I especially like the head. Phil B showed that he couldn't get a T3 to fire on it but that is all I have been using with mine and I didn't even adjust the pin. I may have to when I change T3's.
