    I have come upon a slight dilemma. I have realized I need or rather would really like a vape that is always on while at home mainly during weekends. I will be getting a Lotus soon but I may not always want to use a flame, so that is a different discussion. I have thought the SSV wand paired with a wpa would allow me to use all my glass and allow for an easy rip or two putting the wand down and then coming back for another couple rips. I have the LSV but the body of this vape becomes too hot when left on. I have also heard amazing things about the Herbalizer. Maybe an underdog they look so beautifully simple with the wood. I really haven't either of those vape used with a glass piece in an "elegant" manner. The sublimation looks really interesting but maybe too involved for this purpose but I kinda want it too :rofl:. Just wanting some input.

    Can't go wrong with an Underdog, HI, or E-Nano for 24/7 on vapes.

    E-Nano.

    Is this elegant enough?

    Love the music. Yes it is very elegant. I looked at epicvapesdotcom and really liked the exotic wood one but its out of stock and is and older model. Please correct me if I am wrong but with the e2 you could simply use a GONG with at least one 18 or 19 mm male and use this vape in all kinds of ways. Is there another place that sales these vapes really would like an e2 in exotic wood maybe? Also I didn't see it in this site but does this vape have a diffusion tray for melts and whatnot the gf likes them, not a deal breaker but would be nice.

    I'm not 100% on the EV1/2 as I don't own/use one, however yes you can use it all sorts of ways with proper attachments. I do know that EpicVape isn't going to be making the EV series anymore though, and will only focus on the E-Nano line. Then again @ half price, the EV2 is hard to pass up, I agree!

    Also, this is a small privately owned shop and all sales are direct through EpicVape AFAIK so there aren't any other retailers to buy from.

    As for using the nano for concentrates... well my friend, no tray is needed!



    Thanks to @Enchantre for that awesome video!

    edit: the first video I posted above was also using this method, but through water.

    The HI can stay on 24/7 and gives off very little heat.

    Agreed.

    Choosing between the modern log vape contenders.. Not easy!
    Luckily you can't choose wrong.

    @Korben
    If you can afford it, the Herbalizer would be an awesome choice. The heatup really is so quick that it's essentially always available to be on. However, log vapes work amazingly well at a fraction of the cost.

    How is the airflow on the e-nano? I'm looking for a 24/7 vape that can compare to my fakexhale cloud+...?
    I still keep a bowl for combusting(I know:disgust:) next to bed at night for when I wake up in pain. And obviously I need high temp, so an adjustable e-nano looks great. So I would love a log vape to keep on at night. I love my ghost pen with oil at night but I want something for flowers too. I'd love an herbalizer but can't afford it.

    IMO the old log Vapes had too much restriction. All the new ones I've tried are quite good.

    Compared to the original VapeXhale cloud with a used/dirty ELB, the airflow is very comparable.

    Nothing wrong with leaving a SSV on all day, or most desktop vapes. i used to leave my EXq on all day too. I often have my ssv running through the day and just come over and take a hit every hour or so.

    Herbie heats instantly and cools the same way - here's a little Herbie porn of my own.

    I preferred when my SSV was on for a full day or more. I ended up keeping it on for just under a full year and had no problems at all. I'd keep the aroma top on to keep the place always smelling nice. A little extra bonus to being able to start vaping instantly.

    The WPA attachment will work just fine. I don't know if 7th Floor makes them anymore but 5 plus years ago they has what the called ice chambers, which were essentially a teeny tiny tube with minimum or no diffusion at all. I found that to be the best set up for getting water filtered hits from the SSV.

    I have had a few hi temp sesh's with the Nano and I'm blown away how it can cook that dark and not actually burn (glowing cherry). Not saying others can't do the same but...

    The Vapolution 2 can be left on for most of the day. How I use it now is turn it on at around 4:00pm do a session then come back to it throughout the night until 1:00-2:00am.

    I Know its a different class of vaporizers then those mentioned so far but with the coming power adaptor the FlashVape in S2 mode promises to be a great Vape to have Stuffed and ready to hit.

    There isn't really anything to suggest now. I think one of the only ones not mentioned is the sublimator. also a great one to leave on 24/7 I had mine on for the better part of 2013! (July-Dec)

    stays hot, vaes oil and herbs. does it very well. It even makes it's own amazing oil! :)

    but I think a Log or the ssv would fit hte bill as well!

    the herbalizer, also since it has a 10-15 s startup time...

    Nice but I wasn't talking about a dab but like the fragrance melts you can use with the ssv and the solo has one as well.

    How is that connected to the Herbie

    http://silversurfervap.com/ground-glass-water-pipe-adapter.html

    This is what I though to use. That way I can attach it to any water pipe with a ground class joint.

    I didn't realize you could leave the sublimstor on 24/7. Just realized I responded on four separate posts. The new Firewood 2.0 came in today. so I'm :smug:

    my pick is the DBV. 7th floor even says they have one at their place that has been on 24/7 for several years

    I thought about it. But I kinda like the melt tray and the looks of the SSV artwork series. I think these two vales have the same internals.

    The SSV definitely has an edge if you ever want to do concentrates.
    Due to the angle of the connection.

    But yar, same soldering iron style heating element. Simple but effective.

    Not just due to the joint angle, I'm pretty sure 7th Floor already released the SSV version of their oil kit.

    I got a SSV partially so i could have an always on vape.

    When I get my name called on the Heat Island waiting list though I can say with 99% certainty the SSV will go up for sale and the HI will be my new 24/7 friend

    However I knew this when I got it and I got it used.

    sorry I just remembered that most versions of the sub have an annoying auto shut off. mine is the adapt-a-bong version, and if you do get a sub, be sure to ask and make sure it's a 24/7 version or else you will be bummed out.
