Turning the Q-Unit™ 'On':
With Q-Cup® in Coil Chamber, and Coil and Q-Unit™ Cover installed, the Q-Unit™ is ready to be turned on for use.
* If using the same Coil from previous use, press the (-) Button on the Vaporizer Battery.
- Within the Q-Unit’s™ main interface mode, you can adjust the devices wattage. The wattage control range is from 5W to 60W.

NOTE FOR OPTIMAL USE: The ideal wattage for the Q-Unit™ is 25-30 Watts. Over 30 Watts may prematurely burn out the Q-Cup’s® coil and decrease the efficiency, or number of hits you will receive from a single Q-Cup®.
Using the Q-Unit™:
With wattage set for optimized use, The Q-Unit™ is now ready for use!
PRE-HEAT – THIS IS ESSENTIAL FOR FIRST USE WITH A ROOM TEMPERATURE Q-CUP® THAT HAS NOT YET BEEN HEATED.
1) To Pre-Heat, either rapidly push the power button 3 times (which will automatically activate the 10 second Pre-Heat sequence), or press and hold the power button for 10 seconds until the display says:
Depending on wattage used, additional Pre-Heat may be necessary.
NOTE: Higher wattage will vaporize the concentrate more quickly and produce more of a cloud. Lower wattage will provide a cooler more flavorful vape.
2) After Pre-Heating IMMEDIATELY press and hold the power button again and begin to inhale with a medium to slow consistent draw for best results.
NOTE: With Q-Cup® still heated, subsequent draws before the substance has had time to cool down can be taken without the need to pre-heat coil, or with less Pre-Heat time. This will depend on time between inhalations and also the thickness of the substance in your Q-Cup®.
Proper Vaping Posture:
To avoid spillage of your concentrate while vaping, do not allow the device to exceed a tilt of more than 45˚.
Keep device upright through its cool-down phase to allow concentrate to solidify and to avoid spillage.
