    Found this case at my local Walmart camping section, it had a fire starting kit in it (bonus) and cost 8 bucks roughly. It's perfect for my Alfa, pencap packer, cleaning brush, and herb storage. And it even fits with a delrin drip tip on there. Waterproof, smell proof..thought I'd pass it along. Cheers!

    I can only seem to find it online in orange, but it's only 3.99!

    Nice find!

    I have some of those around the house that I've used for camping/canoeing over the years. Didn't occur to me that it might be a good waterproof /smell proof container for a vaporizer. :clap::clap::clap:

    @antispleen I just picked one up at Walmart and I even duped them into selling it to me for $3.99 :lol: Fits the Alfa and my Vapcap condenser tube/woody mouthpiece that is my full time MP add-on for the Alfa MP.

    I have my doubts that its completely odor proof though.. the seal doesnt seem very robust, and even though water molecules wont pass the barrier, air/smell molecules are much smaller and could still pass through, especially for how inexpensive it is. The true test will be when I leave my loaded Alfa in my truck all day in the 110 degree summer we have here. I have other uses for it if it doesnt work out.

    Oh, and Happy St Pattys day! What better way to celebrate than to puff on an Irish-made vaporizer :leaf:

    @ALFA Vaporizers

    Would be really great if you produced some kind of spacers to reduce the oven size while still allowing a reasonably tight packing of herb.

    Or some kind of dosing capsules/crucibles for easy swapping (although, that would be difficult because of the rod in the middle).

    @ALFA Vaporizers, are there any plans for Alfa II?

    Alfa was bought out about a year ago. And after the new mouthpiece options apeared with basically a bendy straw stuck into a standard mouthpiece, i kinda get the impression the current owners are here to ride out as much cash as possible from the existing products. Rather than further the product line.

    I could be wrong, and I'm not trying to bash the company at all. Just sharing my thoughts.

    I think youre right. Its been out for 3 years - if they had plans for a next gen Alfa we would've heard about it in this thread by now.
    That said, if I were to buy a new portable Im thinking I would just say fuck it and get another Alfa now that its $100 and still ticks all of my boxes. I look at all of these new fancy portables and the price tags and the issues that people have with them, and then I use my Alfa and think to myself, 'do I really need that noise in my life?' This constant search for the latest and greatest to add to my collection has gotten old to me, its just a reminder of the trap of materialism in our society. This vape still does it for me when Im not off the power grid with my Vapcap. Every other e-vape in the Alfas form factor is either lesser quality, or similar quality but too expensive or is saddled with too much tech and too many mixed reviews or user reported issues that ive never experienced with the Alfa. I had the Linx Gaia that costs 50% more than the Alfa and I sold it because i felt that it had the bad combination of not performing as well, not being as efficient, and being more of a hassle to clean than the Alfa.

    And now that I run this mouthpiece on it full time, Im REALLY not interested in any other electric portables-- this thing is still a pleasure to use in my book.

    Hey guys,

    New to this forum but thought I would share some ideas...The plastic tubing from my old Vapolution fits
    perfectly inside the Alfa mouthpiece if you turn it upside down...same with the glass tubes..I like seeing
    the vapor emerge from the alfa....Plus it isn't quite so hot...This is only my second vaporizer, but it is the
    best I have used, and a great bargain compared to others...

    The alfa on the goboof site for 99.99 is still as good as first gen models?

    @ALFA Vaporizers any plans for a 4/20 sale?
    Also has anyone been able to compare the Alfa with the Fury/Fury 2?

    Yes i can compare the two. Conduction or convection technology.
    If you need more ask in the ask fc section.

    These were my initial thoughts:

    The first thing I noticed about the new Alfa is the weight (noticeable heavier than the old),
    the body is from one piece and they added some sort of rubber (really can't define material)
    inside the hole where you attach the mouthpiece. The new Alfa gets really, really hot during the ten-minute
    session, but surprisingly mouthpiece doesn't (maybe because of that added piece). Also, the new Alfa takes longer to heat up and sometimes shuts off on its own (very rarely).

    Still, I think it is worth it. Love the Alfa.

    Battery life is the same? Right now I'm using a pax 1 and I just want something new mostly for home use with the optional of portable I'm thinking solo2 but I love the look and price of the alfa

    The original alfa had the same feel as a flowermate. I just remember at the time it was a lot more expensive.

    Yes, battery life is the same, about 4-5 10 min. sessions. I think you won't be disappointed if you decide
    to go with Alfa, it is a great little vaporizer.

    If you like the alfa you'll like the fury2 ten times more.

    If you're using a Pax 1 you can't go wrong with either Fury model or the Alfa, they all blow the Pax 1 out of the water.

    I dont think its that black and white.. my last 100% convection vape I sold and I dont miss it. Besides, the Fury isnt 100% convection anyway.

    Basically, it is a better unit...It has a two year warranty, which makes it a no brainer...
    It all depends on your own personal feelings in the end but for $99, you can hardly go wrong
