Slow EFIE
In the morning my EFIE takes over 10 minutes to get up to my set values and on a 20 minute comute I'm losing cost saving time.
In the afternoon it takes only a couple of minutes to get up to set values. I know that it has to do with cool mornings and warm afternoons and the temp of the EFIE. It says in documents that I can change the heater in this, but how will this affect in the afternoon.

RE: Slow EFIE
My EFIE does the same thing, right now I got it set to 130mV and in the morning it "starts" at about 115 mV. In the afternoon, or when it's warmed up, it can go up to 137mV. I think this is because of the fact that electronics is always affected more or less by the surrounding temperature. Am I correct Mike?
So it is normal with some fluxuation, I think you can read about that on Mike's page somewhere.

RE: Slow EFIE
Yes, the EFIE is temp sensitive. But I've alleviated a lot of that with the current board design. If you're getting a lot of fluctuation due to temp, try setting one of the heater jumpers. This may resolve it for you.

I will be doing a more in depth article on this subject. I'll try to post here when that's done.
