yeah i knew that was doable, but thought i would try a seal. ive used that method with other vapes.
or.... if your water tool has a 14mm gong... the stock stem mates with it without the need for a ring
me too ,
idk why that happens either .
maybe being away from the site for a few days , causes that ?
I've gone to putting a few " likes " on some of the posts , just to get the
alerts happening again ......but I honestly do like the posts
Try $35-$42 depending on the battery...check out Centizen's project/thread.
Poon if you just open the thread it will start sending you emails again. What I try to do but forget is check my watched threads and see what I haven't gotten notices for in a while and just click them. It fixes it. I even fell off the cera thread for a day this one for two days. It happens if you don't click the link in your email which is annoying. Away for two days...me...that is funny.
I know exactly what you mean. Although I never had that happen with my many Solo's (never ever combusted even on 7), I have "tasted" that combustion taste in my Cloud on max temp.
^^^Hate to admit it, but I finish most stems on 7 and I have never combusted!
This thing is awesome...i think it could probably go a bit higher in temp so as to extract a bit more...but I'm probably just being greedy
Not enough videos showing the beast abilities this vape has. This my m102 rippin my knockoff matrix perc. This combo makes me forget about the cloud very quickly. These hits take your breathe away haha!
You aren't kidding... that vapor was thick as milk from the start. I have not used any of the older models, I came in about the time the M105 was hitting the scene. Ended up with 2x M107s. I have been using the turbo gong stem, so my vapor has not be that thick, but I do get an easier draw. I guess that is the trade off. Still does the job!
HO-LEE-SHEET Shredhead! No kidding it makes me forget the Cloud! I've been without my Cloud for 3 days now and after seeing your vid, I do not miss it! It couldn't milk THAT thick with my hydratube.
this really surprises me. i recently popped the screen in the other way to enable a larger load. i packed it in there pretty good. set it to 2 and wow. 2 is where i will start. is mine like super hot or something? when my stem is packed full i get great rips on 2. anyone else?
is there a "break in" period?
loving it so far.
Ya and the ABV gets just as dark as using the cloud on max. Just have to deal with the shitty restricted airflow. I like that I can pack a bowl and rip 3 hits and not have to stir or nothing. Just instant medication.
Nope it can be done. I do three and stay at three but start taking hits as it warms up from two.
When mated with glass, my Solo ABV would get WAAAAY darker than my Cloud's on MAX (for the newer non ticking anyway, the tickers were hotter/better IMO)
Here's another quicky with a cheap ass bubbler I have. It makes real frothy bubbles and actually stacks a bit. It was only like 65 bucks
This is good use of the SOLO!
Thanks for the tip!
The milk is insane...i think it milks FAST due to the conduction....VX Cloud can get thick, but takes time to draw through, cuz it's mostly convection (but tastes better longer)
Ya solo is half conduction half convection. So putting a fresh bowl and leaving till heat reaches 7 then hitting creates huuuuuge hits
Edit: I also do full bowls but zero pack. Find it's better for full heat and through glass
Solo air flow is deliberately restricted to those 4 tiny holes you can see in the base of the heating element - jamming the stem right down can more or less completely block all air flow with the standard stem and the 4 larger holes in the stem itself don't look like they're going to impose much airflow restriction.
The physics of air flow are such that you can increase the amount of air flowing through those 4 holes in the heater cup with either more (negative) pressure or bigger holes. Drilling them out a little and voiding your warranty good and proper might work although I have not tried it but whatever you do, DO NOT let any metal swarf fall down where it could short the battery or circuit board!!
The extra draw people report with modified stems is probably due to external air bypassing those 4 tiny holes. I don't own a pvhes but from the photos at pv it looks like it looks like it allows a small amount of external air to flow through the rubber grommet down the 4 channels cut into the sides of the glass and back into the stem? That air bypasses the solo heater so MUST inevitably cool down the air going through the herb - presumably people using pvhes wind their solo's up beyond the 3 or 4 that works well for me with a stock stem?
My recipe for a DIY pvhes - try to loosen one side of your lips sealing around the glass stem to permit and control a tiny amount of fresh air to be sucked in?
It's hard to explain but easy once you get the idea. Pull one corner of your mouth slightly to the side while inhaling on the solo until you allow a tiny hole to form and let in some air - you'll probably hear a slight hissing and feel the easier draw. Note - this extra air WILL dilute your hits but will give a much easier feeling draw. Personally it's a compromise I can easily live with - I do it kind of automatically now as I finish the inhalation. I use a kind of goldfish mouth pull - like puffing a cigar as someone said until I can see the vapour starting, then a full seal slow draw about half way then a progressive slight loosening of one the corner of my mouth until I feel the draw free up a little to finish with a good long deep inhalation. Note I'm only diluting the last few hundred ml of the inhalation. In terms of hits, I find this works well for me. Technically, the last 150ml or so of ther draw (which in my case is diluted with cool room temperature air) does NOT get down to the gas exchange membranes in your alveoli where the THC and friends can be absorbed - it's called the respiratory dead space - all the air in the oropharynx and the trachea down to the 6th or 7th branch where the alveoli are - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_space_(physiology)
i was just noticing this after my 5th or 6th stem. no stirring required at all. with my DBV i stirred after every pull.
do you think its bad to heat up take 3 pulls then shut it off. and do this all day long? is it better to have a longer session less often or shorter sessions more often? i myself prefer the latter.
this was one of the first things i thought about after hitting it a few times. just slightly bigger would be perfect. it is a little too restricted for my tastes, but its new so we will see. it def produces.
about the charging cable. i know it cannot charge while being used, but is it bad to use it while the cable is still attached? can i just take it from charging state to my temp setting? should i always leave it plugged in when at home?
and about the cable that does charge during use... $50? really?
The heating up process is what drains the battery the most .
You be better off just taking out the stems during sessions and letting it cool .
While letting your Solo stay on .
The $ 36 PA ( with FC discount ) is well worth it , if you're planning on using it a lot
The BEST prices for the PA (and Solo) are through Randy at PUI.... you may not think so, but trust me on this one You just need to chat with him...he absolutely floored me with deals one night and I went crazy buying stuff because everything was such a good deal compared to anywhere else.
is that $36 from PV or PIU?
just saw this! thanks
$36 from PV with the FC discount. I think PIU can do better than that
Clicker the draw will become easier as muscle memory kicks in. I had a hell of a time and now it is effortless.
I am getting my plug from pv only cause I put an order in for stems and other stuff that randy doesn't have so it just depends what you need. I personally if I am going to take a few hits just turn it off and leave the stem in. I do take a bunch of hits after it is off to cool it. I don't often do that unless I am taking hits before leaving the house and didn't have time for a session. I almost always complete all sessions on all my vapes as any less I would just have to vape again in ten minutes.
