Eleaf iStick Pico User Manual


Important notice

To avoid overheating we recommend to turn off the device while transporting. Always use compatible chargers provided.

The Eleaf Pico is a tiny but very powerful unit operating between 1 watt to 70 watts or 200 to 600 F. It works ideally  with the top filling Melo III Mini tank and the supplied 0.3 ohm coils deliver excellent vape and taste. Powered by a  single, interchangeable, 18650 battery it can be set to Variable Wattage (VW), Bypass, and Temperature Controlled (TC) modes and can be used with Nickel 200 (Ni), Titanium (Ti) and Stainless Steel 316 (SS) M1,M2,M3. 

For the expert vaper there is the Temperature Coefficient of Resistance (TCR) mode which allows the devise to  support different temperature control coils. These are under the modes M1, M2 and M3. These modes allow for  alternate Coils to be used (includes re-buildable for the more experienced Vaper) these modes are not needed when  using Eleaf coils provided with the kit or the Eleaf temperature control Nickel coils.  

The kit includes:  

1 X iStick Pico (18650, 2500mah, batteries sold separately) 

1 X Melo III Mini tank – 2ml, top fill, with 0.5 coil and spare 0.3 ohm coil 

1 x USB charger 

1 x User Manual 

How to use: 


1) Ensure you use a high rate 18560 cell whose  continuous discharge current should be above 25 amps.  

2) Do not use a cell which has a torn casing as this can be  dangerous.  

3) Before using the Pico set the wattage to the appropriate  level suitable to the coil resistance in the clearomiser.

Stealth on/off: To turn off the OLED screen, but still vape, press the fire button and down button simultaneously.  You can press the fire button once to see current setting. This will increase the battery life. 

Lock/unlock: Press and hold for 2 seconds the “up” and “down” buttons to lock the unit and repeat to unlock. 

To change the orientation of the OLED when the unit is powered off press the “up” and “down” buttons for 2  seconds. 

Switching vape modes: With the unit powered on, press the fire button 3 times in quick succession, the OLED will  display the current vaping mode. Press the “up” or “down” button to scroll through the various modes – Variable  Wattage, Bypass, TC –Ni, TC-Ti, TC-SS, TCR-M1, TCR-M2 and TCR-M3. To select a mode press the fire button once.

Variable Wattage (VW) mode: In VW mode the Pico can support a coil with a resistance range of between, 0.1ohm  – 3.5ohm but remember to set the wattage to suit the coil in your tank. Below is a rough guide for wattage settings  but you will find your own preference! 

0.5 ohms coils – 40w to 60w  

1 ohm – 15w to 20w 

1.5 ohm – 10w to 15w 

2.5 ohm – 5w to 10w 

To adjust the wattage from 1w to 70w simply press the “up” or “down” button, keep the buttons suppressed to  scroll rapidly through the range. 

Bypass mode: Please note that this mode is ONLY to be used by experienced vapers as it “bypasses” the main  safety features of the unit to enable more power to be delivered to the coil. In this mode the devise can support  coils with a resistance range of 0.1ohm to 3.5ohm and the direct output system is applied. 

TC Mode: The devise can support Nickel 200, Titanium and Stainless Steel 316 coils and operates within 100-315F or  200-600C. If you increase the temperature to 315C, keep pressing the up button the unit will automatically switch to  “F” and vis a versa. 

If you try to use a coil with a resistance above 1.5ohm the devise will automatically switch back to VW mode. 

Charging: The battery power indicator on the screen of the iStick Pico will flash continuously when the remaining  power of the 18650 cell is less than 10%, it will flash during charging and go out when fully charged. 

Safety features: Atomiser Protection – If the fire button is pressed for more than 10 seconds the unit will shut down  and display “over 10’s”. Release the fire button and try again. 

Atomiser Low Alert – When the resistance of the coil is lower than 0.1ohm in VW/Bypass mode or lower than 0.05 in  TC mode the screen will display “Atomiser Low” 

Low Voltage Protection – When the volts of the cell falls below 3.1v the screen will first display “Battery Low” and  then “Lock”. Charge the cell to unlock the devise. 

Temperature Protection – In TC mode when the actual temperature of the coil reaches the set level the screen will  display “Temp Protection”. You can continue to use the devise. 

For the expert vaper only – 

Basically Temperature Coefficient of Resistance (TCR) refers to the resistance in different coil wires and the effect  temperature has on them. To activate TCR turn the devise off and press the fire and up buttons simultaneously,  scroll through the three settings – M1, M2 or M3 and press the fire button to choose one. The resistance range in  this mode is 0.05ohm to 1.5ohm and below are the suggested setting for the different coil wires.
