    ok, then. I would like to introduce my new media team. thanks guys

    Stu & sd_haze. :clap: you guys gonna be ok to do this for me often?? :nod:

    I was using icmag cuz its hosted in the netherlands and they will not give LEO any info at all ever.
    (I sometimes post pics of my little gro-cupboard when my girls are sick & I need some advice)

    I am not a fan of having that sort of shit leave a trail to my house. lolz

    so, if anyone has any ideas??? your input would be welcome.

    but I am not really a fan of the general picture hosting sites. They will sell you out to LEO faster that Oprah can inhale a Big mac mega-meal. vapes & bongs might be ok, but big green GROWING buds are not.

    Be undeniably awesome ;)
    EDIT: (for some actual info :lol:)
    I believe right now the pod is officially in "beta testing" phase, everyone with one so far would've PM'ed hazy to get on the beta list a little bit ago.

    So I'd say shooting hazy a PM would be your best bet right now.

    As far as I know, imgur is the safest one as they remove all personal data from the picture when its uploaded (and I think some other image uploaders do not)

    But I looked into it some more and you're right, imgur states "Don't impersonate someone else. If you do (and we will be the judge), or if you do anything illegal, in addition to any other legal rights we may have, we will ban you along with the site you're hotlinking from, delete all your images, report you to the authorities if necessary, and prevent you from viewing any images hosted on Imgur.com. We mean it." :nope:


    I guess if I'm a legal MMJ patient I might technically be exempt from "illegal" grow pics though :p

    Then my first suggestion for hazy would be to figure out the plugs. I just got mine in today and it is gorgeous. I'm already good friends with it even without a proper bowl. I plugged it in and let it warm up. Loaded up the gong and put it on my bubbler and got a weak hit since I didn't wait for it to get from 10v to 13v. Waited another minute and had a couple nice, low temp hits. Then I looked at the VVPS and saw the saem 1.4 you were talking about and heard a slight whine. Something is wrong with the cord. Luckily I have another one I got from Ed the other day (but it's not a sideways one, so I have to put the Pod on its side). This cord is working at the moment, so it is heating up for another go around!

    If you figure out what is wrong with your cord, please let me know!

    hazy...my silicone at the top of the unit is flush with the Pod so it mates with the end of the glass. I though the silicone would be out a little bit to grab it...was I mistaken?

    cheers bro- :tup:

    So Cal would be awesome, but I would be too afraid that some po-po would pop several caps in my ass when I failed to put my hands on my head fast enough cause there is a tail light out in the taxi I am travelling in.

    I guess I am safer here, where my front door can be kicked down & I can be dragged off to jail for my shitty couple of plants. The only thing they will shoot is my dogs. :goon:

    perhaps you should come here, lots of hillbillies, but the beaches are nice. and its summer here now.

    come on in the H2O is fine!

    Nice job on the vid Fred, thanks! :tup:

    Dorkus, I still can't see your pics. Maybe it's got something to do with being a member of that site (I'm not a member). When I paste the image URL into the address bar, it comes up with an IC page with the message "Your access has been denied". Anyway I understand your "paranoia". Thanks Stu and SD for helping out! I wish my stash was looking that healthy....

    Placetime, when I first started looking around for someone to make me a GG stem I actually had in mind one of those types with the extra thick ring of glass so that it could be lifted up easily. In the end the only thing I can get hold of is the GG joint that I am now providing. It's something that I might be able to revisit in the future. It great how the reducer provides the same functionality though.

    The LED light thing was just for fun and I don't have any plans to produce them in the near future. Just want to get these pods out there doing what they're designed for!

    Stickstones, my apologies for the cord! I think I mentioned this to Fred, but I'm using new cords and had no idea that they are of such shitty quality. And to think I waited weeks for the damn things to arrive! I've use a few different types in the past and they've all been ok, so it didn't even occur to me that this could be a problem. Needless to say I won't be using those cords in future :disgust:

    With regards to your other question: the silicone is recessed so the stem just sits against it. This is the newer design. The first version had the silicone sticking up so that the stem could be pushed into it. The new version seems to seal just as well but is more versatile.

    Good thinking Dorkus, privacy laws are a huge deal over here :tup:

    I always find it a bit difficult to cut those little ladies down after caring for them for so long, but it's all part of the cycle I'm afraid.

    I don't know why some can't see those photo's though, I'm not a member of that website either myself but I have no difficulties myself. Could it depend on what browser and/or plug-ins we use perhaps? For the record, I'm usually on firefox myself, but I can see them just fine in IE too.

    I'm sorry you guys are having such bad luck with those tattoo power supply cords. I'm making some heavy duties ones myself right now coincidentally. The metal mono plugs alone were already 5 bucks each, but I rather build something that lasts than something cheap. I've got one of those black extension cords with a plastic plug with my HP myself though, which seems to hold up just fine after a couple of +14 hour days of continuous labor. The cord itself is a bit on the stiff side though, but I hope that'll just translate into good longevity. Luckily the Pod is bit heavier then the HI or WW, otherwise the stiffer cord could probably make it tip over.



    What do you mean with 'even without a proper bowl', Sticks?

    Don't you like way the HP stems work?

    proper...the first bowl was a bunch of weak hits as i was playing with it. I haven't gotten my technique down yet, so all the bowls or stems I vape now are just test bowls until I figure it out! It's a reference to the quality of the session rather than the hardware.

    Got my Pod yesterday! I had seen these pods turned on the web and seen nifty uses for em but never held one in my hand. I truly like holding it and catch myself looking at the internals through the holes. Its finished so well and feels great in the hand. I am still learning how it performs, had a great session with it and my zap bubbler yesterday evening. The hits are clean and super tasty.Thanks so much Hazy, I look forward to spending more time with it the next few days in the shop, great work bro!

    They are all truly beautiful pieces Ed. I am sure they are greatly appreciated with you! :tup:

    Mind for some notes compared to the other two in terms of vapor production, overall session experience, taste, draw, smoothness of hits etc?

    It is great to hold another guys work in your hands and know they put alot into it!

    I am still learning how to utilize it now to its fullest. Have only had a couplea three sessions with it and cant really say how it measures up yet. I really wish I could say more about it now but need to put it through its paces. I will have more info soon.

    :ugh: I think my pod died tonight.

    I had a stem at 14v, and got good results, there wasn't really any need to go higher, but I wanted to see how it would go at 14.3v.

    So I turned it up a bit, and gave it 5 mins to adjust temp.
    When I grabbed it, it felt too cool, and It wasn't giving me any vapor.

    I tried playing with the power cord, but I couldn't see anything that might be broken in it...
    I'll try it tomorrow with a 12v PS to check if it was just my VVPS playing up...

    The only thing I can think of that would break is the resistor. I don't think 14.3V is too much for it though. I've had one running at 15V for several days with no problems. Let me know what you can find out and we'll get it sorted.

    Yeah, I figured if i managed to burn out the resistor it would've at least put off a bit of a smell or something :shrug:
    Fingers crossed for dodgey VVPS.
