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)
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.
