Fam are you performing a hot wire to ya damn disposable?? HAHAHAHA


perkyderky30

I’ve had to do it. It honestly hits harder than any dab pen I’ve ever tried


KelReddit17

How does one even do this? I’m curious af lol


Puzzleheaded_Path790

You gotta strip the wires from a micro usb it’s on YouTube. Hits super hard but wouldn’t recommend definitely not a good idea lol.


Strong_One6226

Why isn't it a good idea it's like the same as a battery u just take less hits


ElWoracho

This seems potentially dangerous. By "hotwiring" you are bypassing any safety regulators that the battery would have. Here's a link cause someone is going to ask: https://www.wotofo.com/blogs/vape-guide/regulated-mods-vs-mech-mods Yes this is for nicotine MODs but the principles still apply. No I dont want to argue, yes I'm sure people have done it. Do what you want just make sure you understand what you are doing and the risks.


LacJlg

I love your disclaimer at the bottom. Thanks for the link.


ReyDosCatorce

It’s called having an unregulated mod you get fat clouds w them hoes but you’ll fuck yourself up


Crow_Nevermore

because batteries catch fire when you bypass saftey systems like coupling resistors and circuit capacitors and just apply current to it through a wire. doesnt happen all the time, but then again, neither does losing at Russian roulette.


Puzzleheaded_Path790

Well they make batteries for a reason, you can burn yourself, short an outlet, start a fire, inhale too hot of dab, the list goes on and on


Equility

1. You could overvolt the cartridge and it could explode in your face 2. You could burn or electrocute yourself 3. You burn out the wick far before the oil is gone and it will start to release harmful byproducts and carcinogens Shall I keep going?


oneToKenz

A micro USB never puts out more than 5v. Most pens have power levels higher than that. As long as you don't take too long of a hit you will be fine. It's literally no different than a battery. *Where* the voltage comes from is irrelevant as long as it is the correct voltage and amperage


MalfunctionMage1

Yes you're right but you're only considering volts. There is a lot more factors to the power of electricity above just volts. A high amperage can cause a low voltage device to fry. You know those fake gum toys that shock you when you grab a piece? Those typically run at less than 5 volts but with high amperage and they hurt much more than a 9v battery would. Im not saying g don't do what he's doing, im just saying be educated about


oneToKenz

I mentioned amperage at the end of my comment. They said micro USB is used in the "mod" these are rarely over 1 or 2 amps. Most pens do 10w (5v x 2a = 10w) so they're basically identical. Now if you're using a fast charger block that could be a real issue 🤣


MalfunctionMage1

Youre right I was too high and didn't realize lmfao Honestly a cheap USB cord could easily cause damage too as they often don't have safety features at all to limit damage


MisterMudds

Idk about you. But I have to hit pens like 300x harder than any other device...I'd have blown off my fingers on the first pull....


KamikazeKennedy3

You're right to some degree but even batteries have blown up in peoples faces and this is far more volatile and uncontrolled.


KamikazeKennedy3

I was wondering why nobody explained that the likely outcome is it blowing up in your face, even if you do this 100% correctly, because of the volatile nature of electronics when not controlling the current! I've seen pictures of people who have had carts blow up in their face and it is horrific, granted they also have a battery that adds to the severity but they were unrecognisable. Literally left them with no facial features and missing skull and parts of the brain in some cases... all the cases were disfigured beyond belief but some were worse than others. Oil is flammable, you are vaping oil and the glass/rest of the cart is perfect shrapnel... essentially hotwiring a mini dynamite inhaler to stick in your face for a desperate hit that could potentially permanently disfigure you and ruin your life forever if it sparks and blows your pretty little face off, sounds safe!! Either that or it just lodged itself in your brain and stops you dead! Or you could get a bit luckier than that and just be brain dead forever... you're acting brain dead, maybe dont make that a reality! Just a friendly bit of constructive criticism, but you go do you lol.


MalfunctionMage1

It absolutely is dangerous. The fact you're getting harder hits means you're running more current through the device than it was designed for. The pen itself usually steps down. The current to allow for controlled hits. Since you're dealing with live wire its possible something could spark, and like I said you're running more current than it's designed for. It could eventually fry the cart, or worse cause it to catch on fire Source: I do much sketchier shit all the time as I use scrap parts to build shity little robotics as a hobby. So I have a fair understanding of how electronics works. Yes I'm a hypocrite I just want you to be informed before being a dumbass like me


zforcum78

If the wires are left on too long the cart can explode, I know someone that used an alto charger and they had glass embedded in there face.


perkyderky30

The only reason it’s not that great is because it will burn your coils


Luke_SR4

It do be hittin different though for real


Reasonable_Anxiety78

It’s actually relatively safe it won’t ever explode because of the amps I think it’s only like 2.5 amps or something. Rips hard as fuck it’s pretty much a blinker in 3 seconds


Additional_Refuse_46

you strip the wires of their rubber sheath, i usually twist the wires so they don’t spread. i’m pretty sure you attached the black wire to the side of the cart and try to insert the red wire so they’re both touching the cart metal to metals. it’s been a long add time since i’ve had to do this but it’s kind a pain to do because you have to find a good enough cord that’s long and you can plug in to use this


Tahoe9719

Nice.

CRACK WIRES HIT HARD AS FUCK BRO


klbeatsxx99

you smoking glo yea you are bruh


Smirkz_XIX

boooooof🤮


Puonk

Such trash


TerryForma

Plug gave me one of those for free to try out. Don't know how to smoke it lol


Dependent_Factor_982

Buy a 510 vape battery


Strong_One6226

Search up how to wire a cart but if he gave it to u for free I would be careful


Ashamed-Ad3909

Yeah, be careful of the cart. Not hotwiring the cart. The cart. For sure man. Lmao.


xMobby

free cart lmao unless the plug is his homie that shit fake


TerryForma

I searched the name of the cart, couldn't find anything on it. most likely fake, don't think Im gonna fuck with it.


xMobby

lotta black market brands out there as well but youd still find some kind of info about them from googling it. if u found nothin id def stay on the safe side and toss it


TerryForma

Yea that's what I'm gonna do. Not taking a chance w these fake carts


xMobby

smart, those things are poison. never worth the chance.


Cannabis_Connoissuer

Uh yeah, the cart. As scuffed as wiring a cart is you arent in danger unless something goes wrong. Glos are already known to be fake and if he got it for free as well its *definitely* boof


pinkarroo1

Does it work?


Strong_One6226

Hits hard asf dude


longdongsilver2071

Glo's in my aren't real, that's why it could be hitting hard haha

SitFlexAlot

I'm just giving ya shit lmao sorry but fr I wanna know how it's done.


Strong_One6226

It's kinda sick actually gets u baked asf and it's easy all u need is an android charger


SitFlexAlot

Does usbc work?


Strong_One6226

Like some 10 year old kid shows u whats up lmao


Strong_One6226

No I don't think so just search up how to wire a cart on yt


Strong_One6226

Guys u didn't read that I said desperate times I would not normally be wiring a GLO cart for God sake but, desperate times


VulcanBrady

I know desperate times so I’m not gonna knock you, but I’d still encourage you to be conservative in doing this. If that cart has anodized or similar coated filament (which it most likely does) the added wattage can cause the coating to burn off and be inhaled which is super toxic. You could end up getting sick or permanently damaging your lungs in a bad way.


Strong_One6226

Wait how do I tell if this is happening?

elJoe92

What part of the cartridge are you wiring it to? Asking for a friend.


Strong_One6226

The bottom u need an android charger. I recommend searching up how to do it cuz it is a little tricky if u don't have nail clippers


swervossg

local smoke shop or order one online


Strong_One6226

If I could i would bru


el-bufalo-malverde

You must be 15


ppuxh

It’s a sign to not smoke that toxic cart lol


ppuxh

It’s a sign to not smoke that toxic cart lol


Unknownbetrayer

Had to do this once, 10/10 would do again. I ended up hot gluing my wires on and just in plugging the usb. Less room for error. ⚡️⚡️⚡️


deadxink

How exactly does this make sense, if that’s a cart you probably should have just changed the battery, and if it’s a disposable how did you manganese late to kill it with so much left on it


Strong_One6226

Dude innever had a battery this is just a cartridge


skelous_

glo btw…


Strong_One6226

Confirmed not fake tho


el-bufalo-malverde

Who? Glos are a known black market brand that’s super low quality


skelous_

Your lungs, not mine


skelous_

says who


Titanz100

Says the inconsistent/shady packaging and cart design. I've smoke a good dozen in my past. Believing if they hit, they alright. That oil can contain anything. My man, glos should be avoided.


pignugget420

Maybe he put the oil in it himself


skelous_

By looking at some of his replies, that seems highly improbable


personal_pluto

how does one even go about doing that shit?


SuperconsciousDragon

I remember doing this when my battery shit the bed on me, good times 😂


Smirkz_XIX

what the glo or the wires 🤣🤣🤣


Chairsofters

I wanna know who originally came up with this idea. Don’t get me wrong I’ve done it before but who was the first? Who stripped down some raw wires and was like “fuck it, we’re gonna hotwire pure electricity into this small metal thc cartridge and get fucking obliterated.” They were the real pioneers, going where no man dared go before.


wholelottaslatttt

Went through prob hundreds of boof. I’d rather take a break at this point


[deleted]

Somehow, this doesn’t seem safe


[deleted]

If the concentrate is over heat, like, if you put the wrong voltage and amp to the coil, yes, it’s dangerous.

Shit at least you got a cart to smoke 😊

Well it sounds like you get stoney bologna off of it... and that's pretty legit 💯


Bright_Ad_6895

>Well it sounds like you get stoney bologna off of it No I do not, huh? Never smoked a Glo in my life. Where did I ever infer I "got stoned" from that BUNK? 😂😭🤡 Have fun being stoned off those pesticides & cutting agents though :-)

Do not do this


Flankennstein

When that thing shorts out and either electrocutes you and you fall on top of the wire and die or the liquid gets so hot it explodes and disfigures you for life not a single person is gonna feel bad like not a single one. Spend 15 dollars and get a mod at a gas station.

whalesnrainbows74

This is definitely some desperate type shit I’d do. One time I smashed a cart under my ass when I sat down with my pen in my back pocket, stupid college days, and I was so desperate to not lose all the oil that I bought syringes to suck it all out and put it into a non-damaged cart. It worked surprisingly well, and all was fine until my parents found the extra syringes in my desk at home and thought I was doing meth or something. LOL.
