Torqkey question

I bought this to use on my carbon seat post.

I usually just tighten by hand. When I tried to use the tool it is allowing me to tighten way more then I usually do! seems way to much for me. I have never had a problem with slipping posts. Should I just ignore the new wrench, does under-tightening cause any problems?

Compromise. Tighten more than you usually do.

The only problem undertightening could cause is slippage. If that isn't happening, be happy.
