I haven't been following the portables market too closely recently, and I'm trying to figure out if there are any portables out there right now that I'd use over my current setups... My main portable is the Solo, which I love. It has great battery life (I get 5-6 12 minute stems out of a charge) and gives me nice, thick vapor with out much hassles. I would rather something with a less restricted draw though (I have one of Ed's stems, but didn't notice too massive a change in the draw, I don't have a PVHES stem yet because I'm waiting on a GonG version). I was following the omicron and persei threads at one point, but it seemed like their herb carts were still quite a ways off. I also had a bit of a look at the thermovape T1, but it's battery performance didn't thrill me, as I don't want to be carrying heaps of batteries around (ideally 1-2 spares is all I'd want to take with me), that was part of what turned me off the MFLB (and I just never got past the learning curve). It seems now that there are a couple of options with the persei, Thermovape is bringing out the new "Cera" unit (the name keeps making me think of Michael Cera ) Then there's also the PAX, and the Inhalator. So basically, what I'm wondering is: Is there anything on the market currently that will give me a substantially better portable experience than the solo, or should I stick with the solo, and nab a PVHES once the GonG version comes out?
