    How does one become assimilated???

    I missed the changing of the year cause I was floored by the Pod and some mysterious local skunk variety! I was pretty much assimilated I guess! :lol: :ko:
    Happy New Year everyone, even if time is really a human abstract thing! Keep it open minded and simple! :)

    I thought I should start the new year in an adventurous fashion and clicked my PS to the 15V setting. It goes through 9, 12, 13.5, 15, 18, 20 and 24 Volts. I measured the 12V setting at exactly 12V, the 13.5V at 13.75 and the 15V setting at 15.28V.
    It was a revelation and I immediately brought in my mind the vids of Frederick, BigDaddyVapor, Stu and the other guys with HI's or UD's! So that's how it's done...!!! :science: Thick vapor production in a blink of an eye and if careful enough with your timing, it's quite easy to avoid combustion, even scorching of the load. ABV can come out exactly as anyone may like it. Very easy control of the temps for me. No need for moving the Pod up and down either. I am finding I get better medicated like this, faster and with smaller loads. I am hoping it's not the bud I picked for this morning's shredding and proves to be more potent than the last buds... I will repeat experiments with other buds too for sure! :D
    I keep my Pod pleasantly warm at 9V and turn it up to 12V for direct hits (seldom) and 15,28V for the Saxo hits. Very smooth sessions and piece of cake loading and maintenance of the stems. :tup:
    Where is my damn VVPS now??? :mad: How far is China damn it??? Should have ordered earlier. Australia proved to be a little closer... :lol:

    what is the projected price point for the pod? will it come complete, ready to medicate right out of the box, or will i need to purchase other items (i.e. power supply, stems, etc.)??

    I wonder how high can we go without damaging the resistor? Not that I would go any higher... I am guessing my sweet spot will end up being somewhere between 14 and 15V but we'll see.
    And another question for anyone who knows... What is the temp reached by the resistor itself and what kind of temps does the glass tube reach when the voltage is at.. let's say... 13V? Infrared thermometer anyone?

    Oh, and Ed? Are you planning on doing this with glass or just your iron throat? :ko:

    Been using the gong stem and my zapbubbler, works great for me. This has been the only way I vape lately.

    Does the Zap bubbler make a big difference in smoothness mate? My bro is interested in one and I think it could also be me...

    Oh yes it increases the smoothness and cools the vapor very nicely. Thing is its one of a few and may not ever be available in the future. I was lucky enough to get one!

    I will be offering a kit including stem and fixed voltage power supply. I won't be offering variable power supplies at this stage.

    Hazy, do you have a price tag yet on the kit or are you still ironing out the kinks before doing that?

    would it be easy enough to do it myself if i wanted to... buy a new power supply and/or add a dial or something? i change between lower and higher temps often enough

    I feel most log vapes, hotpod included, work easier when inverted onto your basic water pipe.
    Cheaper & easier to find and it just feels more functional.

    EHLE for example =)

    So, here is the ABV from different Voltages. This was by no means scientific, but I tried to control for as much as I could. Each stem was hit a total of 4 times, and was stirred in between hits. Since I vape primarily with a water tool, I used the same water tool for each batch. Sorry that the lighting is not consistent in the pictures, but I think you get the idea.

    Alrighty.

    Here is the non-magisto'd FULL version of my Hot Pod video. It has the same song, but it actually reaches the crescendo and the first one cut it out early.

    This video you can actually see the vapor forming (into a twirling tornado) and the load size.

    Max FPS HD 720p in all its glory =D
