    It worked for me Friday.
    If you're paying with Paypal choose "Checkout" instead of "Paypal". There you can enter the discount code and then choose to pay with Paypal.

    Hope that helps. if not disregard and try contacting @Splat :D

    EDIT: Okay I stand corrected. I just tried it out again and it now says.
    "Unable to find a valid discount matching the code entered".

    I know what you're saying. I already have too many different forms of GAS. I don't need one that leads me to spend $50 for each strain variant I want in the rotation. But...I'm thinking about it.

    I didn't say every strain. I said, "Every strain I want in the rotation." Where I live, there ain't no retail. My "guy" is going way over the top if he has three.

    Trying to decide if that has actually ever happened but, thinking optimistically, three probably wouldn't be a horrible Chewy rotation (and considering there are currently three visually discernible versions... MAYBE IT'S DESTINY!).

    I am thinking this would be a great grinder for me. Right now my method is a little archaic and would love to have a lil pocket grinder to fill my crafty out and about, and my FP at home. I am not really fussy about the grind consistency, I like my herb at curing RH levels.

    It can happen to the best of us.

    Mind sitting down wind until it passes?

    I'm sure I speak for all when I say 'thank you' for doing so......

    I am kinda taken back by all the praise, totally unexpected for an electric grinder.

    I see the draw, but when I saw the video it looks like it takes forever! I put a lot of material in my grinder and this does not seem like a great solution for that...but I see a lot of heavy hitters in here that like it. I am left confused.

    I enjoy grinding filled lids in a few twists, am I crazy?

    Rarely do I pregrind for more than a day. Definitely not sitting on a lid long after a grind, and everything goes into a classic to preserve freshness.

    For daily out and about, odor control is very important to me. How does the Chewy2 do with containing odors?

    I don't think it seals flavor in at all fwiw which is probably why they offer a bag on their site. I just carry herb in a miron jar when out.

    I wasn't expecting much but it loads a lot better in real world than in my video. I'd say if you just need a bowl loaded it's a snap and only is slow when you need to add more herb in the grinder itself.

    Might be tedious for a bag bowl or smokers joint/blunt but the overall experience is way better than using a manual grinder for me. But my hands still hurt when trying to use manual grinders. If you are trying to replace a grind 2.5 inch or higher grinder you may be disappointed. I personally like just grinding right when I want to vape whatever I have and rarely do I preload jars.

    Got mine 4 days ago and like it a lot. It's easy to carry around and gives me a nice fluffy grind every time I use it :) Amazing for filling a Mighty or Fury 2 bowl. I also used the Chewy 2 with my Grasshopper.

    For Vapcaps the funnel size of the Chewy is too big. Will there be a Chewy 3? Make the funnel size adjustable and it's perfect! For some of my other vapes I prefer a finer grind. The Chewy won't replace my Newvape Fine Grinder but it might totally replace my Newvape Coarse Grinder.

    I agree with @steama about the flavor. It's perfect for flavor. Almost as good as vaping whole nugs.

    I saw this post before i purchase the Chewy 2 and really interested to know is these USB rechargeable traditional form of battery work or not. I got the Chewy 2 on Monday and received one of these $3 USB 9V battery last night. And it is working good!

    And it weight only 20g , the duracell is >40g.

    And the Chewy 2 works great with my new Lotus, the funnel of Chewy is perfectly fit the lotus bowl.

    I would buy a pink one if it was hot pink. Mrs P would love it.

    Still cant say enough good about the Chewy and @Splat. Fantastic unit, fantastic customer support!

    You are very welcome @steama and thank you for your support.

    Everyones support and reviews on FC are really making a difference and I cant thank you enough.

    If anyone has any problems or needs help with their Chewy just pm me. It might be quicker to get me here rather than email. :nod:

    Merry Christmas and hope everyone has a happy new year.

    Hi @steama can you let us know how that part broke and where it goes please? Also editing your entire post after a reply from the manufacturer isn't really "fair" I think. Maybe just adding an edit note would really show how things happened?

    Hi @k,

    I would like to explain about the broken part. The part was broken out of the box. It was damaged in the production process and some how got through our test protocal. The little clip on the back of the push block got broken off. This part is made from polycarbon which is a very strong plastic and will not break unless it is bent over 90 degress. It some how got bent 90 degrees and then back again during assembly and broke. This can't actually happen in the device itself so rest assured if it wasn't broken out of the box then it wont break and of course we will replace the unit.

    This is the first time this has happend. We stand by our product and know that it is built from quality materials and by a very good factroy. However somtimes faulty parts slip through. We are very proud to have 0.1% return rate. 1 out of every 1000 which is really good. We will watch out for this issue in production.

    Regarding Steama's post we simply got our wires crossed. I would explain but its better coming from him. Don't worry I didn't pay him off or anything :lol: I don't think it would be that easy with Steama. :goon:

    @Splat thanks for the detailed clarification. I'm glad to see it's not something that could happen during use. I understand the QA process is definitely not something set in stone and has to adapt according to the feedback you receive so I'm also glad to see you're being reactive on that level.
    As for @steama post, it's just that before editing it didn't really convey the same impression as it does now and I believe it's part of evaluating a company to see how they react when something went wrong on their end. I work in CS and we do mistakes from time to time but always try to use these as opportunities to flip the customers impression around and make them actually recommend us (without any bribe ;) ).
    So please don't get me wrong, I like your product and I'm interested in it even though I shouldn't really think about getting one at the moment and so far I like how you seem to be dealing with it and its issues. I just wanted to know more for the reasons just mentioned.

    Looking at their prices it'd also cost the same as a new Chewy..

    @steama do you think the trigger end was too tight I know the manufacturer mentioned being able to loosen that area.

    EDIT:
    Obviously it may not be that high but they have some high price points for everything they actually make, considering it'd be a custom job....

    I dont think it would be that bad. The part already exists so it shouldnt be that bad to have a CNC program done for it.

    Could always have it made in China too. If you buy 1000 you could probably get them for next to nothing.

    @steama very sorry you have had trouble with your second unit. You have been a top advocate for Chewy and it is very unfortunate you've had problems. I hope the what I have offered you is satisfactory.

    It is important to me to reassure people that the clips are strong and tested to a high standard.

    After receiving Steama report yesterday I went to my office to preform our strenght test on some clips. I hung a 5kg weight from the clips and then a 10kg weight consecutively. The clips had no damage after the test. The spring force in the Chewy is less that 1kg. See attached videos of the tests.

    At our manufacturing facility we proform this test randomly every 100 units. We also do a 5000 time lock and release cycle randomly every 100 units. We have not come across this problem. If anyone else has this problem please pm and we'll get it sorted.
