It exists boys.
Task is working his ass off apparently.
It's....a soldering station...?
Who is Task, and how should I know him?
Give us some info man
Task is the guy who creates Highly Educated nails and everything. This picture is actually from Aqua Lab Tech's instagram page lol. Task has an instagram too, taskrok, where he posts all his pictures. got some insane stuff hes working on!
Task is also of "Task and Linus" the hip hop bho group!
This is his "electric nail" for dabs...Guess he sent one to aqua lab for them to check out.
Ah, gotcha. Well, sort of at least. I guess I'm to much of an outsider to understand your scene-lingo completely. So that's a solder station with a titanium tip then?
I thought this was about the FC member called HighlyEducatedScholar at first
OTA I was so vaked that I just forgot you're from across the pond. Instagram is a photo sharing application on iphone and that's where the pictures were from. Highly Educated makes a lot of TI nails and everything, aqua lab technologies has a lot of them, Taskrok is the highly educated creator and he posted those other two pictures on instagram as well. that other picture has some 6 cup titanium nail he made for experimenting I guess.
As for the electric nail, I'm not exactly sure how it works but you seemed to describe it pretty simply. He makes the titanium so it looks like a big titanium cup attached to the soldering station with a gong joint to fit in the bong
A hot air rework station (a good one) costs maybe $150. I don't see $650 of added value here. Maybe I need to do some dabs.
Maybe you have yourself a market for a nice product? haha
I've heard a lot of people saying stuff like about the e-nail since it came out. someone is bound to come out with a new e-nail type device soon for much cheaper i would hope haha.
This was my first thought too... Thats a lot of mark up for a modded hot air rework/ solder station
Oh I had not seen this thread and posted elsewhere today about the 800$ markup on ALT!
I'd feel better about spending mega markup cash if they didn't choose the cheapest PID controller made: The awful Mypin TA4. a $45 controller if you buy qty 10 (high failure rates). I'd expect a Fuji or a CAL, both low cost (90usd) but uber reliable.
You have seen Fuji PID's in vapes such as the Fogger and the Super Vapezilla. Then again, a volcano digit lists for $660 usd, so I can see them wanting $800 in baller cash... But I still think if I was to spend eight large, I'd want better than the cheapest electronics in it. The ugly "it's for cannabis" markup rears it's head for sure!
But very cool to own in my book. Wishlist.
I can not wait for this to be more affordable. I have been waiting for this technology for years. Someone please make a better one of these cheaper. Stoner tech !!!
Video of it in use. Definitely seems to work well.
After reading a thread initiated by NorcalOilMan on TokeCity i thought for a split second that you had really made my day when i read comments deading to conclude that's actually a magnetic induction-heating device!
Unfortunately, i've been unable to verify these rumors as "Highly Educated" won't work well for a search string... At least we can see on YouTube that the single-ended coil-shaped tool gets red-hot but that's about it. With Induction Heating shouldn't we expect a coil with 2 terminals and not enough heat to render that coil luminescent?... Yet, i sort of wonder.
The actual heating element is inside what you think is a single terminal "coil". It's actually 4 wires (terminals - look at the AMP socket not the heating "cable") covered by a metal mesh shielding that lead into a ni-chrome metal jacketed heating element and a temperature sender wrapped around a Ti nail.
Why people think it's anything other than what is pictured, I don't know. I've used 2 HE Electric nails and neither required Harry Potter to make it get hot. No. it's not an induction device. It's a direct heater.
Salutations Fully Melted,
Great, that's all i needed to know!!
What temp is best to dab BHO?
STARTING TODAY HIGHLY EDUCATED HAS TEMPORARILY CEASED ALL SALES OF E-NAIL UNITS
Highly Educated has a reputation in the market for quality products, and at eight-hundred dollars retail, there is a level of expectancy for your product to perform. A 30% – 40% failure rate of a single component is not acceptable, especially for a high end item. That is about the failure rate that we have been experiencing with the E-nail. Yes I have been servicing the units for free, but this is still not an acceptable solution to a monstrous problem. Free repairs are great, but when you spend that much money on a product you don’t want it to break in the first place. Selling a product which is known to fail is brand damaging to our reputation for quality and it will only generate more ill-will amongst consumers. Yes, I understand you might want an E-nail really bad, but would you still want it as bad if you knew it was going to fail? I can not keep pushing a product onto the market with that kind of failure rate. It doesn’t make sense to do so, not ethically, not financially. Furthermore, I have personally invested heavily into production but my costs are likely to double or even triple if I keep putting out units with a high failure rate. That is why I have determined the best action for me to take now is to cease the sales of all units until this issue has been rectified. Once and when the issue has been resolved, I will resume selling the units where I left off on the waiting lists. I apologize for the headaches caused but I can assure you mine is the biggest at this point in time. I appreciate your understanding in this matter, I appreciate any sympathy, and if you have a spare Advil that would be great.
tl;dr Not letting a 125k headache turn into a 250k head ache.
Just saw this thread, reminds me of this other thing i just found called the electro dabber. Dnt know the price or how to get one but it looks a lot easier than the enail. Anyway electrodabber.com
I too am becoming more interested in an item like this. (ENail) The one above seems cool too, but they require too much info to get any pricing etc...
I know someone who owned an HE E Nail, and he really seemed to like it! Hopefully more devices like this will be in development soon.
Hmmm... I would probably avoid filling out any sort of form to find out about a product. Especially on a page that has no info on it. It has a photo, and a list.
It's screaming "scam" at me.
I wouldn't say that. This one seems legit. Anyway, a buyer can be disappointed by any shop, as a consumer it's in your interest to watch your back constantly. I too think they're asking too much but not as a scam.
So how easy would one be able to rig something like this up at home and do you wanna help? (please don't ban me...)
I agree this is screaming for a DIY tutorial.
800 dollars for a a couple of simple items that cost less than 200 dollars is pure and utter B.S. .......... Dab Essentials pulled the same crap with thier 180 dollar TI nail ....... now that people have learned where they come from and how much they really cost to make ...... people refuse to buy them.
Cannatax is B.S.
Can someone show me where the other 700 dollars goes???????????
