I'm going to keep this relatively brief as its late and I have a major problem with this device.
First impression - very, very good. It feels well made and great in the hand. I like the battery slot and the display.
I'm less impressed with the wattage adjust wheel - it serves a purpose, but has a tendency to decide to jump 10W at a time unexpectedly. I understand its supposed to go through the wattage faster - but I haven't got the "feel" of that function yet and I don't find it works well for me.
When the voltage is somewhere close to where it should be for the wattage (more on that next...) it can actually fire really nicely and give great vapour production, however....
Now - the MAJOR problem. When a tank is changed, the Pegasus correctly shows a new resistance but refuses to adjust the voltage regardless of what wattage has been set. For example - I like to fire one 0.5 ohm coil at 23 Watts. This coil is read by another mod at 0.46 ohm, the Pegasus reads it at 0.42 ohm. On the other mod I'd expect around it to fire at 3.25v based on a calculator - this mod reports that it fires at 3.25v. The Pegasus wont fire at anything like 23 Watts for at least 3 seconds - I have to actually fire it at 3.54v; this equates to around 30 Watts and you can feel (and hear!) the coil receiving too much power
for those first few seconds before it ramps the power down and behaves properly.
I don't understand this at all - my other wattage adjustable mods adjust the voltage as appropriate and I get an appropriate level of power for the settings I've chosen.
I tried with two nautilus tanks both with 1.6 ohm coils (although they each read slight different on mods) - these fire at ridiculously high voltage compared to their rating. They start off at over 7v - that's 30 watts being pushed through a coil that reads 1.69 ohms. How can this possibly be acceptable?
Now to make this even worse - I tried this on a low end dripper. Fortunately this didn't cost me anything - but that was
reading at about 2.01 ohms. Note the past tense - was
. In less than the three seconds it took for the Pegasus to adjust to a sensible voltage it popped the coil and that dripper is now dead. Note
- during that first press and hold period, your selected wattage is not applied and far too much power is pushed through your coil. @NoSmoking
please could you get in touch with me to talk this through? I don't want to say more here before discussing this with someone from Aspire - however the Pegasus pushing significantly greater voltage through a coil than it was designed to take is a massive problem that other users should be warned about.
Now - if I'm missing something obvious here then I'll publicly state it was my mistake - however, this is a regulated box mod - this massive amount of power should not be pushed through the coils in this way, in my opinion.
I've ended up elaborating more than I first planned to - but I think there is a possible safety issue here that other people need to be aware of.
I hope everyone who has their temp control Pegasus has had a better start with it than I have - but please take the feedback from my problems and be safe
