Ramp up Wattage
Reading reviews, it seems there was no way of adjusting the ramp up wattage in TC mode when the Pico first came out. Has this changed at all or is it still set at 75w. I suspect Artic Foc would have an option, but probably beyond my expertise. Thanks for any replies.

I dont own this pico, but the firmware is the same as many eleaf products. They have preheat, if thats what you mean, but 75 watts is 75 watts. Im sitting at an airport with no way to look at mine- maybe another pico owner will chime in, i know many here used to like them.

What happens when, whilst within TC mode, you hit the fire button 4 times?
With Arctic Fox firmware, it is 3 clicks to select the mode and, within a TC mode, 4 clicks to set wattage.
Installing Arctic Fox firmware from nfeteam.org is a breeze.

Should have been clearer. I havnt got the Pico yet. Im trying to establish, before I order one, if what I read in the reviews is correct, that the preheat is only adjustable from 25w to 75w which is what I have already on my MVP4s, and it is too high for my style of vaping. If it can not be lowered to 12w-15w, then the Pico is not for me. Sorry for any confusion.

Why not use Wattage mode instead of TC mode ?

Wattage works great on my picos :)

Amazing.

Having known before, almost two years with my Picos.

Now I love them even more.

I think the this is one of my favorite mods but the TC never worked for me. It would work for a bit and then default back to wattage mode randomly. The TC never gave a better vape IMO, it just prevented the occasional absent minded long trigger burn.
I don't use them much anymore because the atty's I use are too big. If I could find a good mesh atty that would fit I'd go back to using them.

At no point in Trump's rambling, incoherent 1 term presidency was there anything close to what could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the country is now dumber for having experienced it.

With thanks to all (including the cat) I have solved my problem. Eventually found a review that stated the Pico can adjust the preheat wattage independently of the TC.

You must have received an unlucky one for although it was not my favourite inexpensive mod, it did do TC very well.
I used the SX Mini's for TC, the pico and the eVic, the last two did it impressively for the low price.


Beautiful photo of the kitty BTW Gatok
