The Pulse has the versatility to work with oils of all types and viscosities thanks to its manual override settings, in addition to the automatic mode that is featured on the battery. By default, the Pulse will select the proper voltage based on the resistance provided by the cartridge atomizer when attached. However, this can be overridden by pressing the button three times rapidly and you’ll be able to cycle through the four preset voltages: 2.8 Volts, 3.2 Volts, 3.4 Volts, and 3.7 Volts. Having the flexibility to adjust the voltage amount is great – it’s nice to have lower voltages for live resin and rosin carts, while the higher settings provide fantastic vapor production.
Whether in manual mode or automatic mode, the Pulse also reduces the voltage of the battery as the button is held down, so the heat is gently tapered down during your hit. This is really what drives the “Never Burn” technology, as it was developed to reduce over-burning of cartridges – a gradual decrease of temperature is thought to help preserve the terpenes in the oil, which greatly affect the taste of your cart. Some batteries fire at a constant voltage, which if set too high, can quickly degrade the terpene content, and alter the taste of your cartridge; the Pulse certainly doesn’t run into this issue with the voltage being tapered down gently. Whether you’re chasing terpenes or clouds, the Pulse will certainly take care of both for you.
