    While I can understand all the fuss about the portability ...
    Well, we are all different after all !

    I usually do not medicate outdoors.
    It has given me almost always some kind of trouble or discomfort .
    Whether was the wind or the rain,weird people ,cops ,etc .

    i prefer to medicate indoors and then be outdoors.

    Still ,when the IH device is powered from a stable " Constant Voltage " output
    ( voltage does not gradually decrease ,like it does with batteries ) ,
    like when from an external switching or linear PSU ( <= power supply unit ) ,
    the whole experience gets even better .
    The IH remains powerful and fast ,all the time,every time.

    So,I kinda needed ASAP a real desktop IH .
    For my desk .
    Seated nearby the monitor.
    And of course powered by the computer's PSU .

    I totally get that. I have no interest in taking an IH outside either.

    But I live in a rural area that has frequent power outages so I like to have a set up where I am not dependant on a electrical receptacle. Rechargeable batteries help as does lots of butane and lighters. I also like to be able to move the IH about the house without the receptacle dictating the location.

    My situation may be relatively unique. My whole house is set up to not rely on electricity. Wood stove. A gas fireplace that doesn't need electricity to work. Same with my gas cook stove, it works just fine when the lights go out. All I need is a match. Landline phone. I'm setting up solar for the freezer and sump pump. It's sort of my principle approach to everything out here and also one of the reasons that I love my Vapcaps so much. The fewer things I have that need to be tied to a plug-in, the happer I am.

    I actually meant cleaning it might help with your burnt taste.

    Wondering if the 5V from the computer USB output is enough to power up an IH?

    PSU? Not USB? My bad.

    Always nice, as usual! :)

    I think maybe with a USB-C solution it can be possible, you can also loading notebooks with this standart why should not it possible to start the IH but I'm not an electrician. Has anyone more information of this possibility?

    He is most likely using the 12v leads directly from the actual power supply inside the case..... vs the 5v USB port.

    Diff strokes for different folks, I suppose.

    While some prefer their IH indoors, I (would) like one which I can fire up OUTDOORS, watching the seals
    In Monterey, the bikinis in La Jolla, or the lobsters coming into port on the right coast.

    An uber portable VCIH which can be belt up with your EDC pack.

    Would be the tits! Much eye candy. Outdoors.

    Oh I thought @stark1 meant it in general if that is possible.
    Yes @stardustsailor use the direct connection to the PSU we can see the cable goes direct in his PC tower, no cable that is connected to a USB port.

    One of the reasons I keep the condenser is for the reclaim. I'm not stingy with my weed but once a week I'll poke some degummed hemp fibre through my 3 condensers and generally get a gooey glob of resinous reclaim that goes in a herb sandwich in the NonaVong. This is often the highlight of my vaping weekend :D

    I bought an aomai off eBay a while back, which I’ve never found reliable. Maybe it was counterfeit? Because of all the love this torch gets here, I’m gonna try again, direct from dynavap.

    They are all cheap lighters. Some do it better than other ones

    I do power the desktop IH,by having it directly connected with the pc PSU .
    Used an unused 4-pin peripheral / MOLEX connector for the job ,
    yellow (+ 12 VDC ) & black wires (GND ) .

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    USB ports can not be used ,as they can not deliver the needed amperage ( up to 10 A )
    for the IH module to operate .

    Check the "usb power delivery " section :

    Mine is a Jarhead so tethered to a plug and only used at home. I wouldn't mind having one I could bring out and about just to eliminate the sound of a torch which can be a bummer in some places. But I'm not in a hurry for it so I am going to wait for DVs and some of the others being developed to see what all the options are first.

    @stark1 please cut that out. I already have morning nausea.

    More like my bile but there's definitely movement...

    So I originally didn't use the scoring in the tips to reduce the bowl size but I find I am doing it now on all my VCs with Ti tips. One advantage I find is that with a smaller bowl there is never a need to stir, or as I usually did it, dump and suck. The other, of course, is I end up using a little less as I don't always need a full bowls worth.

    Man, I gotta get off the couch and go to the beach...it's so close.

    This area has been cold and foggy since April or so [the marine layer got drawn eastward by the inland heat].
    September already too. This year has been the Summer that never was.

    The tapered glass bowl, I found, does not mate well with a VapCap mouthpiece—unless, you use
    a fat rubber mouthpiece from DV.

    The silicone version might be a bit more fitting.

    We are an adaptive bunch, so there are probably other alternatives. Such as silicone adapters.

    Delta 3D studios makes silicone adapters that will fit just about anything. Vapcaps included.

    Hey what’s up, my first post and I am still fairly new to vaping. I am a machinist by trade and in my spare time I’ve made a few toys here and there. Anyway !

    Thanks for all of the pioneering that’s been done especially by Pipes and a few other accessory designers to make vaping easily enjoyable.

    I love my DynaVap 2018m but I found it to be restricted out the tube. I saw the ti tip has notches at the face of the tip so I gave my M better airflow by adding that enhanced feature plus a few others.

    A little tid bit, I found a weak point in the 2018 M , see if you can spot it. I may have a few more projects to accompany my VapCap in the near future.

    Vape up !
