RE: IPV D3, TC and Resistance question
Yes sure. The D3 works so stable for me, it usually does not require any temp change once set.

Coming from a eVic VTC Mini I was a bit awkward with that system first. But after a while using it I think it does make more sense. Not that there is anything bad with the eVic Mini.

What is the purpose of manual joule adjustment?

It sets the maximum power the system is allowed to use. In practice it mostly influences ramp-up time in TC mode.

RE: IPV D3, TC and Resistance question
Aha! So the lower the joule setting the slower the ramp up time? I'm not going to worry about setting it at 25 since it goes to 75.

Is there any limit to what the Crown uwell can handle for either temperature or wattage? Thanks, Kelly

RE: IPV D3, TC and Resistance question
I'm not very familar with the Crown but to my knowledge it will handle all wattages the D3 can throw at it. The temperature in TC mode is your choice, usually 420 - 500 F.

The wattage is mostly dependant on the coil you are using. Generally spoken 1 ohm = around 12 - 15 W, 0.5 ohm = around 25 - 30 W, etc. for normal single coil.

If your are a beginner use it with the 1.2 ohm coil head and with 12 - 14 W. This is a SS wire coil, which you should use in power mode on the D3.

Thank you for all your help. I'm going to press on with my nickel coils at 450 and 25 joules. Hopefully I am within safe parameters. I've never used Titanium - well I have - but only in my ears. I have an allergy to all other metal. Kelly

RE: IPV D3, TC and Resistance question
I read the nickel coils for the Crown have 0.15 ohm? Is that right? That's pretty low, you might need a bit more than 25 joule, but I suggest others to jump in who know the Crown better.

Be careful with the nickel, I means since you have a nickel allergy. And please stay in TC with them. Are there Ti coils for the Crown?

It's a differnt ti in implants (6al-4v) the ti used in vaping is grade 1-5 not the alloy. The only medical grade metal used thus far for vaping is 316lss.
Just thought I'd throw that in there Biggrin

Your vape is plenty safe power wise.

RE: IPV D3, TC and Resistance question
I went up to 40 joules. And yes, there are Ti coils for the Crown. I have no experience with Ti coils. I would have no objection to using them. I just prefer TC as I find it much more enjoyable to watts. Much smoother.

Don't worry, I'm only allergic to metal regarding pierced earrings. I get weird bumps in my ear lobe and pain when I wear anything besides titanium. If you google it, you'll understand.

Thank you all for your support. Kelly
