FAQ/extended troubleshoot

Enter Main Menu

hold the 'fire' and '+' buttons until you see the menu on the display.

TUBO seems to run cold

Increase the resistance in ‘menu>coils>manage>TCR’ by 0.002. Make sure the lock symbol is after the number before you leave. repeat if necessary.

TUBO seems to run hot

Decrease the resistance in ‘menu>coils>manage>TCR’ by 0.002. Make sure the lock symbol is after the number before you leave. repeat if necessary.

Change click combinations

Change in ‘menu>interface>clicks’. One has to be set to Edit, otherwise it will get reset after a battery change. 5-click always powers on/off.

Set Up Cruise Control/Session mode

Assign “Cruise” to one of the Clicks in ‘menu>interface>clicks’.
Set your Cruise duration in ‘menu>vaping>protec’.
Activate Cruise by clicking the fire button the amount that was set in the clicks menu option. (2 clicks default)
Cruise will be deactivated automatically when the time is up or when it is aborted with a single click of the fire button.

Set Ecolevel for Eco-Cruise Control

Theoretical energy savings by lowering heater temperature between draws in Cruise Control.
Set your Eco level in ‘menu>vaping>Ecolevel’.
0: eco features disabled, original Cruise Control. keeps the heater at the set temperature.
1: the heater temperature is lowered when no draw is detected.
2: the heater temperature is lowered more than in eco level 1 when no draw is detected.
3: the heater temperature is always lowered to 135degC when no draw is detected.

Set Up WarmUp-mode

Assign “WarmUp” to one of the Clicks in ‘menu>interface>clicks’.
Activate WarmUp by clicking the fire button the amount that was set in the clicks menu option. (3 clicks default)
The warming up automatically shuts off when the threshold watts are reached. It can be interrupted by single clicking the fire button.

Change peak power

Enter main screen edit mode by clicking the fire button three times (or according to clicks menu) until the top line flashes. Navigate to the ‘PWR’ line by clicking ‘-‘ and press ‘+’ to start changing the value and save with the fire button. Recommended value is 70watts.

Activate 1°C/5°F increments

Switch the option in 'menu>interface>1CF5' to ON.

Change 3rd line display

The third line on the main screen can be switched to display different properties, default is current (AMP).
Enter main screen edit mode by clicking the fire button three times (or according to clicks menu) until top line flashes. Navigate to the third line by clicking ‘-‘ and press ‘+’ to change the display info. Set by clicking the fire button.

Specify battery type

Change battery type in ‘menu>expert>bat’. Mostly adjusts battery charge percentage. Its fine to let it at ‘30Q’ with other batteries.

Activate power mode

In ‘menu>vaping>modes’ activate power mode by setting ‘power’ to ‘Y’. enter main screen edit mode by clicking fire three times until top line flashes. Press ‘+’ until you see ‘power’ and select with the fire button. Recommended values for on-demand mode are 35-45 watts. Cruise mode is not recommended in power mode. Do the same to get back to TCR mode.


Firmware

This software is recommended for TUBO heaters only. Be careful with other heaters, start with low settings.

latest firmware version

the latest firmware contains all successful features of previous firmware updates.
170926-tubomyevic-tempcruise-fireactive-ecobar-noclicksreset-beta.bin
- change temperature during cruise, '+' & '-' no longer interrupt cruise but change temperature live during cruise
- set temperature (TSET) automatically displayed on third info line during cruise
- fire button active, only possibility to deactivate cruise/warmup by single clicking the fire button
- displaying eco bar instead of cruise bar when eco mode is active
- no reset of clicks options upon battery change

Joyetech updater & TUBO logo

tubo-joyetechupdater.zip
- includes windows and macosx applications to perform the update. (only compatible with the evic vtwo mini, updater available on joyetech.com for other models or use NFirmwareEditor)

older firmware versions

170910-tubomyevic-nofreeze-warmup-900s-beta.bin
- no more screen freeze when entering cruise mode, no more cruise bar disappearing
new option for clicks: warm up mode (beta)
- protection timer up to 900s
- dynamic limiting of peak power according to real time battery voltage instead of percentage

170727-tubomyevic-ecocruise-ecolevels-beta.bin
- eco feature tries to detect draws in cruise mode and safe energy in between. simulated draw sensor. set eco-level in 'menu>vaping>Ecolevel'.
0: no eco-mode, this is identical with the original cruise mode. heater heats to desired temperature and stays there all the time.
1: heater temperature is lowered some (linear relation ship of desired temp) when no draw is detected.
2: heater temperature is lowered more than in eco-level 1 when no draw is detected.
3: heater temperature is always lowered to 135°C/275°F when no draw is detected.

170709-tubomyevic-goeasyonlowbat-beta.bin
- better battery efficiency by limiting peak power to 50watts if battery charge is lower than 50%, again to 40watts when charge is below 25%.
- known issues: occasional freeze when starting cruise mode (cruise status bar disappears immediately and screen goes black after some seconds, does not react on fire button, however it is active in the background). abort with '-' or '+' and restart cruise.

170528-tubomyevic-cruise-240s-stableheatup-beta.bin
deprotected PID algorithm in the same way the other algos are determining max battery power. getting rid of the undershooting/heatup issue.
cruise status bar
- known issues: occasional freeze when starting cruise mode (cruise status bar disappears immediately and screen goes black after some seconds, does not react on fire button, however it is active in the background). abort with '-' or '+' and restart cruise.

How to update the TUBO firmware

  • download the latest version of the firmware and the program that will update your TUBO from above. One comes in a Zip folder so extract/decompress the file. Use 7-Zip, if you don't already have a program that does this.
  • Open the now decompressed folder, its called "tubo-joyetechupdater". Same as the download but it should be a "File folder" instead of a "Compressed (zipped) folder" now.
  • Inside there are update tools for windows and mac osx. Open the one for your system, and run the application. A window that looks like this should pop up:

  • Turn your TUBO on and plug it into your PC with a micro USB cable. Your computer should immediately recognize the TUBO and the app will change to display your info! (Note: make sure the USB cable is one that can also transfer data. Some only do power. If nothing happens try a different micro USB cable first! The included TUBO cable will maybe not work. likely one for a smart phone is suitable.

  • Click "Update" in the firmware app. A window will open so you can select the firmware update file. Find the BIN file called "XXXXX-tubomyevic-....", select and open it.
  • Your TUBO should now be updated! If the display stays black, repeat the update procedure. The device can not be bricked. Exit the app, unplug your TUBO.
