It all depends on the wattage you run, how many times its been heated, and the length of each heat cycle. Temperatures can reach 900 degrees at 30 watts when heated 3 times for 10 seconds each time. 50 watts with two 7 second cycles will reach 900 degrees sooner, but all depending on the amount of time each cycle is run. Once the unit is heated once or twice it will take less time and less power to heat. Play around with it until you find the perfect dab for you.
