Brief Overview

A revolutionary personal vaporizer for the true connoisseur, Omicron allows you to vaporize solid concentrates anywhere and anytime. Experience pure flavor from start to finish with the new KISS Cartridge, a ceramic wick and titanium coil atomizer.

Revolutionary KISS Cartridge

The KISS Cartridge was specifically designed from the ground up for solid concentrate use, unlike other portable concentrate vaporizers that are typically comprised of re-purposed e-cigarette components. Experience pure flavor from the first draw to the last.

See User Guides below for full usage information.

Using Your Omicron

A: As the Omicron is a vaporizer for the true connoisseur, its a bit more complicated to explain, and we’re going to be covering a lot of terms and a little bit of math here, so if you already have a firm understanding of Ohms Law, you’ll probably not need that page. For the 99.9% of the rest of us, we’re building an informational page to accurately explain this. Check back soon.

A full visual instruction manual is available on the ‘User Guide’ Tab, but here is a quick usage rundown:

Charge up your 14650 Li-Ion battery(s) until fully charged. The first time you charge them it could take up to 8 hours. Subsequent charges will only take 2-3 hours.

Filling your Kiss Cartridge

Before first use its best to prime the atomizer to remove all manufacturing oils, etc, from the coil. Before you add any concentrate, run the Omicron for five seconds, then let it cool for 10 seconds. Repeat this process twice.

Using the included tool, apply a small amount of concentrate to the top of the atomizer coil in the ceramic crucible(white). Press the button just enough to heat up the wire slightly. This melts the concentrate slightly and makes sure it’s adhered to the coil.

Replace the mouthpiece and the Omicron is ready to use, or can be set aside for use later. If using later, make sure that once the Omicron is loaded, that it does not sit in the sun, a hot car, or any extremely warm situation. Cool temps are best for the Omicron.

Press the button, and the blue ring surrounding it should illuminate. Heating begins instantly, the only thing left to do is draw slowly and surely, letting go of the button a few seconds before the end of your draw.

Filling your Tube Cartridge

The Tube cartridge is filled by the included funnel. Refer to the visual instructions in the User Guide. Attach the funnel securely to the open end of the cartridge, and align it so that the open sections of the funnel tip match up with the open sections of the cartridge. Screw the cartridge into the top section(with no batteries attached. Use the top section as a base to hold your funnel/cartridge combo.

Place your liquid or concentrate(only those that melt cleanly) into the funnel, and then with an small handheld butane torch, gently heat the funnel, melting the material until it slides down into the cartridge, heating lower as you go.

Use caution not to overheat at this point. You just want the metal to be warm, which is enough to allow the materials to become pliable enough to let gravity do all the work.

Stop heating once you feel the material is settled into the bottom of the cartridge, and allow it to cool completely before you remove the funnel. Once the funnel is removed, clean if needed and store.

Place the mouthpiece into the cartridge, and screw the cartridge into the main body of the Omicron. Press the button, and the blue ring surrounding it should illuminate. Heating begins instantly, the only thing left to do is draw slowly and surely, letting go of the button a few seconds before the end of your draw.

If using later, make sure that once the Omicron is loaded, that it does not sit in the sun, a hot car, or any extremely warm situation. Cool temps are best for the Omicron.

A: W9 does produce a few different kinds of cartridges designed specifically for the Omicron. The Omicron has a 601 threading, which is less common than 501 or eGo threading, but of course adapters exist.

The KISS Cartridge

When simplicity is what you seek, look no further than the KISS cartridge. W9 removed all unnecessary parts and incorporated a ceramic wick specifically made to absorb liquids. The KISS is a load & go cartridge, meaning that you only load enough for one session at a time. Open it up, load it, close it and its ready to go. It comes with a tool to fill the crucible with concentrate, just a small amount. Replace mouthpiece, and its ready to go. The KISS comes in 3.7, or 7.4 V models depending on what batteries you are using.

Standard Tube Cartridge

The Standard Tube Cartridge is designed for longer journeys, as it holds far more than the KISS cartridge, up to an entire gram at a time, potentially enough for 400 draws. While it offers the convenience of not having to reload after every session, it could lead to the occasional need to prime the tube to unclog it”

Both the KISS and Standard tube cartridge use a titanium coil atomizer wrapped around a ceramic wick, and excel with concentrates the melt cleanly and leave no particulate behind. When particulate makes contact with the atomizer, it can overheat. That produces carbon buildup on your atomizer coil, and will degrade the lifespan of your cartridge exponentially.

A: That is a very heavy question, and requires we drop a little science. But stay with us, we will explain the science in a way that you will easily understand. Hopefully.

Vaporization is ruled by Ohms’s Law. Normally this isn’t something we ever worry about or need to discuss with desktop or portable vaporizers, but with Pens, its absolutely required knowledge if you want to have full control over your vapor quality. The Omicron doesn’t just offer vaporization, but also vapor customization.

From Wikipedia:

Ohm’s law states that the current through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential difference across the two points. Introducing the constant of proportionality, the resistance, one arrives at the usual mathematical equation that describes this relationship:
Ohms Equation    I = \frac{V}{R}, where I is the current through the conductor in units of amperes, V is the potential difference measured across the conductor in units of volts, and R is the resistance of the conductor in units of ohms. More specifically, Ohm’s law states that the R in this relation is constant, independent of the current.


SO WHAT DOES ALL THAT MEAN?

Okay. You have a power source(your pen’s battery) connected to a conductor(the power switch) which is then connected to the wound coil of the atomizer. The atomizer in its simplest form is just a resistive wire strung between two metal posts.

So, to recap:
Power Supply —–> Switch —–> Atomizer

When you press the switch on your Omicron, power(current) flows from the battery, through the switch, and to the atomizer coil.

The wire in the switch is conductive: it allows the electrical current to pass right through from the battery to the atomizer coil.

This electrical current then hits the atomizer. This coiled wire in the atomizer is made from a metal wire that does not conduct electricity, rather it resists it. This wire doesn’t allow the current to keep flowing…it acts as a roadblock. But as more current arrives, it adds up, it can’t go any further due to this resistance, but has to go SOMEWHERE, so it builds within that coil, and escapes as heat.

So…lets bring things full circle back to the original question what the differences between the ratings on the cartridges are.

Why should you care?

Regarding Ohm ratings, and this is important, something you will be glad you know when you buy replacement cartridges, the lower the number, the higher the resistance. Lets review the equation again.
Ohms Equation    I = \frac{V}{R},

Higher resistance equates to higher levels of heat, but to repeat, with Ohms, the lower the number, the higher the resistance. So a 1.4 Ohm Cartridge has a low number, or value, but high resistance, and high heat. A 5.0 Ohm cartridge has a higher number, so it will have a lower resistance, and lower temperatures.

Why does this matter to you?

This allows you to completely customize the vapors that your pen can produce. Are the draws too thick and dense? Or perhaps you want more flavor that lower temperatures allow? Different voltage/Ohm combinations will allow you to tweak the vapor quality until find your sweet spot.

With the Omicron, if you want lower temps, go with a higher cartridge rating of 4.0 or 5.0 Ohms. Want thicker denser vapor? You want to look at the 1.5, or 2.4 Ohm versions. Of course, the 3.0 Ohm rating his the sweet spot for many.

* A proper scientific explanation this is not; we highly suggest reading more about Ohms Law if you are interested in more of the actual science involved. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ohm%27s_law

A: The Omicron has very powerful batteries capable of providing near instant heat. Pressing the button causes the atomizer to heat fully within 1 second, producing vapors right away. Many owners are drawing from the Omicron before and after the button is pressed in order to keep the air vents flowing freely, all in one breath.
A: Its important to prime every new cartridge. What this means, is that when you receive a new cartridge, it could potentially have oils and such from manufacturing still adhered to the coil, and its vital to remove these before use. Is very simple to do.

With a fully charged battery and brand new empty cartridge, press the power button for three seconds. Do not go longer than this, or you could ‘dry fire’ the atomizer, rendering it useless. Allow this to cool. Blow away any vapors that may have been produced.

For the KISS cartridge, after you prime the coil, apply a very small amount of concentrate to the top of the coil, and turn the Omicron on for one or two seconds(no more) until the concentrate just melts into the wick.Repeat this process until the wick is fully saturated.

A: The Omicron was designed to work with multiple cartridge voltages, from 1.5ohms to 5.0ohms.

Check the following chart against your power output to determine what cartridge you will need. Always reference the below chart to ensure your cartridge battery combination works correctly together. dontdoit Note that using a cartridge outside of the recommended range can cause damage to your unit and void the warranty.

A: First and foremost its vital that you use the cleanest and purest liquids and concentrates you can find. The Omicron was designed for use with liquids and concentrates that melt cleanly and leave no particulate behind. When particulate makes contact with the atomizer, it can overheat. That produces carbon buildup on your atomizer coil, and will degrade the lifespan of your cartridge exponentially.

Allowing the Omicron to heat up a for a few seconds before drawing will create a slightly denser vapor. The rate at which you draw will also dictate the vapor thickness. Draw faster, and the vapor will be thinner. Draw slower, and the vapors can be slightly thicker.

There are also different voltage cartridges, which in combination with different battery setups will create different vapor qualities. See the chart below for reference. dontdoit

A: W9 Tech does make additional attachments for the Omicron, contact W9 Tech for more information.
A: The included battery charger is for 100v to 240v. You might need an adapter for your non-North American outlet.

A: The Omicron was designed to be used with specific W9 Tech Cartridge/Battery combinations. Included is a handy chart that indicates which battery/cartridge combinations will work best. When using the right combination of cartridge/battery, there is simply no need for any readout.dontdoit
A: The Omicron is a high quality vaporizer made from the best materials. The body is anodized aluminum, and funnel and cartridges are made stainless steel. The heating wire is titanium, and the KISS cartridge uses a ceramic crucible.
A: Titanium Wire
A: It depends on the cartridge you are using.

When using the KISS, its vital to only load as much as you would need for one session. Overfilling can effect the performance of the KISS cartridge.

W9 Recommends filling the Tube Cartridges with up to an entire gram. Its recommended not to use small amounts.

A: The Omicron was designed to provide power and heat as long as you are pressing the button. As a general safety rule, do not leave the Omicron unattended while powered on.
A: The Omicron does not use screens.
A: The Omicron has the same rock solid performance as the Persei, but does not have the same range of
vapor thickness as a result of it not being a variable voltage vaporizer.
A: The KISS cartridge is not sealed, and therefore was designed for small amounts, enough for one session. If you have pre-loaded the KISS for later use, it may have gotten warm enough for the concentrate to melt and leak out.
A: It is purely a matter of personal preference. There is no performance advantage to either, just a difference in usability.
A: If it wasn’t made by W9 Tech for the Omicron, it could void your warranty. Contact W9 Tech for more information.
A: If it wasn’t made by W9 Tech, it could void your warranty. Contact W9 Tech for more information.
A: The included 14650 batteries are charged via a wall outlet charger. There are no USB options, and the batteries must be removed each time you charge them. The Omicron comes with two 14650 batteries, so keep on charged at all times so your never without vapors!
A: Absolutely. We have replacement cartridges available.

Cleaning & Maintenance

A: Always allow to cool COMPLETELY before cleaning, 30 minutes should be sufficient.

W9 Tech recommends replacing each cartridge after it has consumed 1 gram, which is how much each one holds.

We don’t recommend cleaning the cartridge after use, its far tastier to replace them!

If any liquid has made it on to your Omicron body, simply wipe off with a damp cloth.

Always make sure your vaporizer is COMPLETELY dry before using it again.

Do not attempt any internal or external repairs to your unit as doing so may cause fatal injury – or worse – void your warranty! (Please contact us if you feel something is wrong with your vaporizer.)

A: Replace the tube cartridges after every gram of liquid that passes through it. It is not recommended to clean the cartridge internally in any way.

The KISS cartridge can last until the atomizer coil breaks down. Consistently using higher quality concentrates will prevent buildup in the crucible. Cleaning inside the ceramic crucible is not recommended. You could damage the coil or crucible very easily.

A: Its not recommended. Keep all liquid cleansers away from the unit and vice versa. If you need to wipe down the unit use a warm slightly damp cloth.
A: With proper use, we definitely recommend just replacing the KISS after the atomizer burns out or with the tube cartridge, after each gram that passes through it. Otherwise flavors will be severely affected.
A: The cartridges are definitely replaceable, as are the batteries. W9 Tech also makes alternate accessories for the Omicron, contact W9 Tech for more information.
A: Other than a damp cloth, there isn’t much else you would need.

Getting the Most Out of Your Omicron

  • Never leave your Omicron in the Sun or a warm car. Ever. This essentially guarantees that the cartridge will leak.
  • Re-Read previous point. Twice. 2x.
  • Its best to remove the cartridges from the body when traveling or in transit. This ensures they cannot be accidentally discharged if the batteries are loaded and something contacts the power button while moving. It also helps protect the cartridge.
  • Do not freeze a filled cartridge. This could damage the atomizer.
  • Cold temperatures will cause the battery to deplete faster than normal. If you are headed outside in cold or freezing temperatures, keep the Omicron body in a pocket inside your coat, and the cartridges in a pocket on the outside of your coat. When ready to use, warm the cartridge up with your hand, or ten minutes inside your coat.
  • Pre-fill a cartridge or five and take them along with you! Just make sure the extra cartridge(s) stays cool.

Omicron Maintenance

The Omicron can be maintenance free with proper use. When a cartridge is empty, replace it.

If any dirt, debris, liquid or concentrate finds it way on the body of the Omicron, wipe it off with a warm damp cloth.

Protect the cartridges while transporting. Any debris that falls into the cartridges is difficult to remove.

Wrap the Omicron’s funnel in paraffin or parchment paper when not in use. This will keep debris away from the sticky interior of the funnel.

Need Assistance with your Omicron?

Try these Solutions to common issues:

A: Most likely this is due to depleted batteries, even if you see the blue ring when you push the button. Below 10% charge, the batteries can have enough power to light up the LED, but not enough to power the atomizer.

Remove the batteries and place in the included charger and charge until full.

A: Again, this is most likely due to depleted batteries, even if you see the blue ring when you push the button. Below 10% charge, the batteries can have enough power to light up the LED, but not enough to power the atomizer.

Remove the batteries and place in the included charger and charge until full.

A: This is a a common comment we hear. This is actually normal, and not a problem with the Omicron.

What is occurring is that when not in use, the Omicron’s cartridge becomes cool enough for the concentrates to solidify. They only become a liquid when heated, so in between uses this liquid re-solidifies, completely blocking the airpaths in the bottom of the cartridge.

Clearing this blockage is easy and can happen multiple ways.

One method is to just turn the loaded Omicron on for ten seconds, then let it rest for five seconds and see if you can slowly draw until the blockage is released. Its vital to draw slowly. If the blockage remains, turn the Omicron back on and then immediately begin drawing SLOWLY but with effort. This should clear the blockage.

Once air starts flowing, expect a sudden burst of vapor.

Another method that is more time consuming but doesn’t require as much drawing just to clear the cartridge.

Remove the cartridge from the body and hold it in your hand tightly for one minute. Try and make as much contact with the cartridge as you can. This allows your body heat to transfer directly through the metal and aids in softening/melting the concentrate.

After one minute, re-attach the cartridge to the body, and press the button to heat the atomizer. Air should flow right away. If it does not, continue to hold the button down a few more seconds, and the blockage should clear.

A: The reality is that all atomizers have a certain lifespan. Most companies use Nichrome or Kanthal resistance wire, but W9 TECH uses titanium for all its atomizers. They cost more, but last far longer than Nichrome or Kanthal.

Even titanium coils are susceptible to failure. Typically cartridges are meant to be disposable and will need to be replaced eventually.
