    I use the Cubid with the Cubis atomizer 0.5 and the manual dose not state what all these functions means like

    temp ni, ti, ss316, tcr m1, power then it has either PWR that goes from 0 to 200w or some modes say vault? Can someone explain nicely?

    That device has regular wattage (Power) mode. That is for your standard kanthal coil heads.
    The device also has temperature control modes for your different wire types. ie. Ni 200, TI, SS316, etc.

    With a standard coil head with kanthal only run it in power mode ie. Wattage.

    In addition, the M1 would be a "memory" for a power/temp setting.

    My coil is BF SS316 Series Heads from joytech so power mode would be the best for it?

    I have the Cubis that I use on my Evic Mini with the same coils and I use it on temperature control SS316 mode. Works well for me. I can't recall the settings right now and I am not at home.

    TC = Temperature Control
    TCR = Temperature Coefficient of Resistance
    PWR = Power Mode (Wattage Mode) [used for all non-TC wire types]
    Ni TC = (Ni200) Nickel Wire Mode
    Ti TC = Titanium Wire Mode
    SS TC = Stainless Steel Wire Mode
    M1/M2/M3 = TCR Memory Modes (User changeable TCR value, for fine tuning different wire types)

    Kanthal/Nichrome wire is to be used in Power Mode
    Nickel is ONLY to be used in Ni TC Mode
    Titanium is ONLY to be used in Ti TC Mode
    Stainless Steel can be used in BOTH SS TC Mode and Power Mode

    SS coils can be used in both TC and Wattage modes, so it'll be about personal preference at this point. Try it in Power mode and SS TC mode and see which you prefer, and stick with that. I would say try the SS mode first, and if that doesn't cut it for you, kick it over to Power mode and give that a shot.

    I'm unsure if the Cuboid has this feature yet, but the last update for the VTC Mini came with a Cubis BF Mode specifically for the Cubis coils, so you may also want to try that and see how it functions (if the Cuboid has that feature).

    Yes unless your device will run SS in temp mode.
