    Does your Pod have a plastic port??? I thought they all had metal sockets... It's a "socket" too right?

    @hazy About the power cord with the 90 degree plug on the end.
    What I have been contemplating with my resistor based vape is using a short length of cable that has a female port on the end and just wires on the other.
    I would solder the wires into a loop and attach to screws located in the base, similar design to the HI that has the resistor held in place with screws.

    This way there is no plug close to the heat source and you only have to plug the power cord into the female port is on the end of the short/long extension that exits the base of the vape.

    It helped remove the female metal jack from the base and now the power adapters male jack does not get warm at all.

    Just an idea I tried out and worked really well.

    Whoops! Didn't realize that when I made my post because I keep the Hot Pod at a friend's place.
    I actually haven't tested my other cables on the pod because they're not right-angled, but I should test to see if the looseness is purely the socket/port or just the cable.

    Yuppp I was totally off with this line of reasoning.

    The metal socket in the Hot Pod is indeed fine. It is not loose.
    Only the cheap $2 cable adapter is loose.

    So after getting centizen's vvps I started using the POD again last night and today. All I can say is it's a real shame these aren't coming to market any time soon. I'm playing around with different tubes and silicones to get the right seal. But so far it is surprisingly efficient. The effect is sublime and the taste is good and strong for longer than my other vapes.

    Can anyone recommend a 90° plug for the Hot Pod? My beauty has not seen any use for month because I haven't been able to track one down.
    Thanks in advance!

    I don't have my Pod any more (damn money!) but Hazy had a package of heating elements and the same adapter as above held back for me so now that I won't be needing them, maybe he can send that adapter to you. I think he had more. Give him a PM, just to make sure, maybe he sorts it out for you.

    Time to wake up Hot Pod crew!

    I'm trying to find a replacement for the cord Hazy included.
    It's the cord with the socket where you plug in a wall-wart power supply to make it a right-angle connection.

    Anyone know what I should search for on ebay?

    PS: We are almost at 1.5 yr Hot Pod, running daily at high-ish voltage.

    Not yet, I am running a cheap tattoo power supply.

    I want to get a bit of moisture back into the banksia. It smells faintly of linseed oil, does anyone know what hazy used on the logs.
