    It's funny how these 'vape' companies work. I ordered a battery for my 'BUD' Cartomizer. One would think they would include some info on what else I might need but no. Can Someone Please tell me the name of the third stupid piece I need, I have 1) Battery and 2) Cartomizer, now the cartomizer is all unprotected, what is the piece that would screw onto the battery covering the cartomizer? Do I have to start a whole hew thread for a small question like that?

    I hope I never find companies hard to deal with as these 'gotvape' companies seem to be. One would almost think they are Smoking Something to be so non-professional. ;~) (Not Tetralabs they're great)
    otherwise, Worst Industry Ever.

    Hey dude i think this is what u need, I am pretty sure u want a cone cover/shield. I got mine from the site below. To work with the sapphire carts your gonna need to grind this one down a little bit for it to fit, pretty easy with a proper grinder. I know ordering from another site for a 3 dollar part is lame I ended up doing the same thing but it really helps protecting the bottom of your carto, I can throw it in my pocket without worrying about breakage.

    I have been using the gotvapes sapphire carts with Puregold on a vision spinner VV e-cig battery with great results. I run it on 3.3 volts and get really nice hits, crank it up to 3.8 volts when i want a larger hit. it is pretty amazing being able to medicate anywhere with no smell, a couple good hits of PG has me feeling nice. Good luck with your quest for easy medication.

    Props to Haywood for introducing the Sapphire carts(currently available and shipped lightning fast from Gotvapes) to FC.
    No leaks, inexpensive, and big clouds every time. So far the best solution for Pure Gold that I've tried(haven't tried the 1701 yet).
    Thanks bro!

    Like BestAnimator, I'd love a cone to cover the cart that fits these threads, any suggestion will be appreciated!

    This is what i use, you have to grind it down a little bit to fit with the sapphire carts.

    I use an eGo cone too, and also had to grind the tapered end down a couple of mm because the Sapphire is a little thicker than the standard cone allows. GotVapes said they would try to get some more sleeves that are designed for the Sapphire, but so far, no such luck.

    That would be great; count me in for 4. (I've seen these on the buddy tech site, as well as the sleeve version, but I've never seen any place to buy them).

    Hey Everyone,

    I am a first time poster but an avid lurker :p (edit: just realized I posted a few things awhile ago lol) I have been a fan of FC since I shattered my ankle back in january and was looking for an alternative medicine to those horrible pain killers they attempt to shove down your throat. While in southern california concentrates were regularly available and I purchased a G pen micro. However I currently reside in a central california town that does not allow any type of concentrates aside from hash thus making my G pen almost obsolete. I received an email from weedmaps regarding PG and became very interested due to there delivery system, the price however is meh for me but after reading some reviews it sounds like the product packaged with the convenience makes the price bearable.

    However my question is this, since the Gpen Micros do not have a "cart" type system, has anyone tried PG in it? I would assume if you keep the Gpen Micro in a upright position , so the liquid doesnt spill...it may be alright? Also reading through the threads I see that a higher voltage pen probably isnt the best for PG. Does anyone know the voltage of the G pen micro? I am very interested in placing an order through PG I am just wondering if my current set up will suffice or if I should bite the bullet and order the pen on there site?

    Thanks for your help!

    I emailed tetra labs (on saturday) in regards to there pen and if it is a wick based system or what type of atomizer it uses. They replied very quickly and noted they would be replacing there pen with a new one in 6 weeks. The new pen will be more expensive as the atomizer is part of the pre filled cartridge. I dont know if this is good or bad, they have told me it would make the pen (dont know about the cartridges) more expensive. I ordered 3 of there squeeze tubes to try in my g pen micro as I had seen people using it int he clouds (essentially the same thing). Ill let you all know how it goes. Ordered this morning so im hoping it will be here by wednesday at the latest

    Ive used the G-pen micro with puregold and got pretty good results, the only problem is you cant load very much at a time. Enough for 4-5 hits or so, I was scared to load more because the PG is so runny.

    you only get 4-5 hits out of one drop of PG? I dunno if im over burning it then or what but I usually get alot more off of a fairly conservative drop of PG. I was a little apprehensive at first loading it in because of how runny it is, its not like dropping a rock of shatter in there and heating it up so it sticks to the bowl. However I have found that a smaller drop works better than a bigger one, the bigger ones are alot harder to pull off of.

    Overall ive been satisfied with it, although I make a conscious effort to keep the pen as upright as possible to avoid it running into the mouthpiece. As for as the PG itself, im satisfied with it as well. I really need to get a rig to take a few dabs of it. If I was in a medi shop though...id probably choose shatter over PG but seeing as how our town ordinance doesnt allow wax because of the way its made...and PG can be delivered anywhere...PG it is :)

    ive tried to do some research on the vape pens people have mention here...but its still all foreign to me...atomizers,different carts, batteries...im just left wondering what can fit together and what works well. If anyone has the time can they link there components for there current/favorite build. Id like to order something new to try ...maybe something that actually holds the PG in cartridge type system rather than having to do drops at a time worrying about it spilling out of my gpen micro. I saw the mention for sapphire carts...but what atomizer/battery should one get with them?

    thanks !

    My favorite setup is a variable voltage E-cig battery with the sapphire carts that Haywood recommended. Any 510 thread E-cig battery will work but its nice to be able to adjust the voltage for larger hits (i run 3.3 volts, low as it will go) I find this to be wayyy easier and more efficient than loading a dab at a time and you don't have to worry about keeping it rightside up. heres pretty much everything you need. This setup is awesome looks just like a e-cig and the PG has no weed smell at all. Thanks again to Haywood for turning me onto this setup, best 35$ ive spent in a long time.

    heres the cartos you dont need an atomizer.

    this Isnt necessary but will protect the bottom of the cart when in your pocket and it looks clean lol.

    I just realized they only ship to AUS, I use one of these u just have to grind it down a little bit for the sapphire cart to fit.

    Just curious when you had the PG delivered how much did they charge per half gram? Also was it delivered like a ordinary package or did u have to be home to meet with a PG delivery guy?

    thanks for the links and info Yeeebuddy! I just got paid today so will be ordering that set up along with a few more PG capsules :) cant wait to give it a try, while the micro G pen works I dont think it is optimal for the PG.

    Also could you estimate how long 1 half gram PG capsule would last in your set up? Do you notice any PG being wasted by some remaining in the cart or does it tend to burn all of it?

    I ordered 3 .5 PG squeeze capsules at $40 a piece. I had a 20 dollar promo code so it came out to something like 113 after taxes (shipping was free on orders over $80) since I work 8-5 mon-fri and you need someone to sign for the package I could not have it delivered to my house. Instead I had it delivered to my work :p I ordered Monday morning and had it Tuesday before noon. If thats great service I dont know what is. The package was a simple white box with a small label that listed tetra labs on it but nothing regarding the contents of the box. Upon opening it was a bunch of bubble wrapped rolled up with PG capsules in a glass? or some type of plastic? tube. Packaged well so the contents were not compromised.

    Overall ive been pleased with it, but I have a feeling I will be alot more pleased with it once I can get away from the G pen micro (great for waxes just not oils)

    again thanks for all the info

    Glass tube. I fill an empty Sapphire clearo with one of the 0.5g PG ampules, which fills it half way. It is not a good idea to fill the Sapphire up completely (right to the top). Once I've vaped half of the ampule, and the Sapphire is now 1/4 way full, I add another ampule, filling the Sapphire up to 3/4. I repeat this (going from 3/4 full to 1/4 full and then adding another ampule) until the Sapphire starts to get a more restricted draw, at which point I finish it off (vape it down below 1/4 full until I get no more vapor out of it) and then throw it out and start a fresh one. The Sapphires don't start getting a restricted draw until MANY grams of PG have gone through them.

    There is very little waste with vaping the Sapphire dry. I'd guess maybe 0.05g.

    A half gram of PG (one ampule) lasts me at least a week, sometimes two weeks. That's using it every day, and sharing it with friends here an there. YMMV. It lasts me much longer than I thought it would!

    I forgot to add but you will need a charger, here is a link. The only advice i can give for the sapphire carts and PG is they dont really appreciate hot weather. The only thing for me that has made them clog up is leaving then in my car by accident when it was really hot outside.

    Pure Gold is nice but the flavor sucks. I was thinking of mixing it with some of those flavored juices my e cig friends use in their mods minus the nicotine... but I've got zero experience with that stuff. Also I'd need a cart that can handle this while attaching to my Persei. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    These look interesting, but... What are they made out of? Is the clear part plastic? Can you taste plastic? is the wick silica? Anyone look in side the metal part to see the air path and what is in there, wires, solder... TIA

    Not sure which clearo's you're referring to when you say "These", but I can tell you that the Nano and Sapphire both have clear plastic (not glass), and they both use silica wicks, and the Nano has pollyfill while the Sapphire does NOT.

    I prefer the Sapphire, as you can tell if you've read this short thread, but both will work. The Nano had a bad taste that never went away, and it occasionally leaked.

    Any of these will work the only difference is the length and how long the battery will last, I have the 900 mah and it lasts me weeks before i have to charge. I am thinking of getting a 400maH like Haywood just to have something a little more discreet.

    Any 510 battery should work. I like the lowest voltage possible. I use the auto Joyetech 510 for stealth and a constant. 3.3 V output with pure gold and Organa Labs CO2 oils.
