    Are you packing tight or loosely @ShayWhiteGrow ? I'm holding off on really posting yet..I've not had a pleasant experience to start with..more so it's the flavor that I'm. It liking..it's rather harsh..the last session I had was the best one yet and it was my first with the bubbler that came with it. So far through the regular mp it wasn't pleasant. I started at 5.5 a few times and 5 one time..I really like how " modular this vape is..you can completely disassemble it and clean and fiddle with it and they provided everything you could possibly need with this thing from 2 sets of batts down to the screwdriver to take certain things apart. And everything in between. Only other gripe is the lid is to me a pita to put on..it's nice when u get it just right and the magnets grab it but the angle and trying to keep the stir stick on the right side and all that..just a pain..lol..gonna do some more vaping to see if I can get some flavor town going!!

    :tup:Loosely. Also there is a little white mark on the stir tools dial which if facing you then the tool is located toward the back end of the top piece for easy reassembly. The magnet will pull it in. I started too high for flowers the first time and kinda charred the taste. After a full cleaning though it was smooth sailing. It is definitely one of my more flavorful vapes. As soon as it hits 5.5 I draw then stir while finishing my exhale. Then wait a few seconds without stirring, then draw nice and full, then repeat. Maybe even start it on 5 for the flavor express!

    It's definitely conduction. I like to reach for it and give it to noobs and watch their eyes get squinty! It packs a stoney punch.

    Maybe this has been asked but do you have to remove the stir stick to use the concentrate pod??im thinking you do but that seems cumbersome. Im feeling very unsmart for not figuri g out for myself..lok

    I've been using the sidekick with concentrates and I'm really digging it. Imho much better with concentrates than with dry herb...not that dry herb is bad at all it just cooks so fast...I mean FAST..but I've been having nice sessions with the concentrate pod..overall if you are gonna use the vape with dry herb and concentrates then it's a good vape to get and @stickstones has great deals on these bad boys! It's a straight up conduction vape that will provide clouds if that's what your into and I'll say again it comes with EVERYTHING YOU NEED!

    7th Floor is offering SK 'packages', which means not the SK by itself, for 15% off. If you click my link and use their code you will get 25% off! So a SK with an extra set of batts (3 total sets) is $224!

    Got my sidekick a couple weeks ago - it's safe to say I'm sold on it. It is the first portable I have used that I can actually see myself using as a daily driver (and which I have been using daily since I got it). The biggest turn-off for me with most portables I've used is the harshness but the Sidekick solves that in such a cool way.

    wish i had the same experience but mines stop working after about 3 hours
    it was brought from puffitup.com but instead of sending it back to them i send it to 7th floor
    they claim to have fixed and it did work for about another 3 hours and then stopped again
    i call 7th floor and spoke with someone who said they think its cause the batteries might be bad
    so they sent two new batteries and guess what nothing still not turning on so i sent it back again
    so to sum everything up i paid $255.00 (discount price) on a vaporizer that only lasted 3hrs and 6 all together please do not buy this vaporizer customer service is good but the vaporizer has a defect
    and if you have one thats new under the 30 day store warranty send it back to the store with your proof of purchase please dont be a fool like me and send it to 7th floor vape

    Hi guys, I have very generously been gifted this vape by a friend.

    I was wondering if anyone had made a list of the special usage techniques I normally garner from you guys when I get a new vape.

    Also did anyone manage to make bigger clouds? I know this is silly and makes no difference and more likely wastes material but I do enjoy it none the less

    Thanks for the help as always

    Picked up a used Sidekick from the classifieds. I definitely don't think these are worth full price, but it fits a niche at the right price. I really like the mini bubbler with it. The stirring lid is pretty cool too. Flavor is pretty standard for a conduction vape. But the heatup time is quite nice.

    Not my favorite portable, but I think I'll keep it around for the cool
    portable bubbler and fast heatup time

    Hard to think of special technique tips.... the SideKick is a breeze...
    You can:
    • Fill it to the top... but do not tamp it down or pack it.
    • Stir after each hit to keep the good stuff coming.

    I just finished my review of the Sidekick portable vaporizer by 7th Floor - http://www.vaporizerwizard.com/sidekick-vaporizer-review/

    Overall its a solid device, but it's just not my favorite and I really wish it was priced a bit lower. It's a unit to consider for people who really value cool/smooth vapor, but not the unit for someone who puts an emphasis on flavor or clouds in my opinion. Let me know if you have any specific questions, or want me to take any more photos or do any comparisons.

    OK... The new kid just authorized lowering the MSRP price of the SideKick to $235. He then put it on sale for $200. I have told him he is going to get fired. He threw a Silver Surfer at me. I thought he might be bluffing. But then I checked our site!:cuss: Sure enough the little POS changed the online price!!! Lets teach this punk kid a lesson! :nod:The boss is going to be pissed if we sell too many at this price. And how the heck is he going to be able to raise the price when the boss gets back? :bang:

    Lets make the boss sorry that he hired this punk.
    Tell your friends.:lol:
    Stock-up on gifts:brow:

    I used the vape awhile back and it wasn't completely a bad experience but first off it was heavy and a bit clunky to me and second was the fact that this vape comes with an absolute army of accessories..I mean the kit with bubbler and all that was super impressive..but compared to their desktop vapes this wasn't up there for me.
