    I probably pick up and hold my bubbler 97% of the time when using it

    Honestly, either is pretty simple, but I prefer not to lean into it for fear of knocking something over in a stoned state. I'm also not a big fan of leaving the nano perched on top of glass. It tends to be a little unstable IMO.

    I usually pick up the glass with one hand, and the nano with the other, than drop it on. Pull it off when I set glass back on the table. I guess in a way this is sort of like a combuster uses a lighter, I just use nano instead.

    If I'm kicking back with the UFO and whip, I like to use a carbed GonG. Finger from one hand on the carb and holding mouthpiece with other hand in my mouth (kind of like my avatar pic ;)).

    Really nothing wrong with leaving nano on top other than instability. It doesn't seem to roast the load if up there for a couple minutes. I just prefer not to do it (more a psychological thing with me), and am usually lifting to clear the chamber of the glass anyway.

    I leave the bubbler on the desk and use a 12" whip for convenience and ergonomics. It's nicer to move the mouthpiece instead of your head. The UFO is great.....especially for its stability. But, since I got the 10-arm hydrabase, that's the one that gets used. It's just easier to initiate the draw and clear from the smaller volume can. Also, having the sidecar inlet and the flexible whip allows one to see the vapor stream without it being obscured by the bubbles. It's easy to see when the vapor starts getting wispy on those third and fourth hits. I use a small led flashlight to backlight the inlet while drawing.
    You can use a whip with most any bubbler with the right adapters.

    I break glass, my dog breaks glass, heck I even got tagged team by the cat and the dog. So the Nano comes off the glass unless it is in actual use.

    We are glad to see @ataxian stopping by the thread again lately. We've been less civilized without you :cool:


    I forget who gave me the advice on how to use organic cotton to swab out a gong that is all gunky with vape honey, but thank you.

    I bought a bag of 80 organic cotton balls today. I used a half of one, so that's 79.5 balls to go before I have to buy another bag.

    I took the screen out of the gong and set it on a warm nano for 5-10 minutes. I then rolled a small piece of cotton around the inside of the gong with a wooden skewer. The cotton sucks it right up. After working on 2 sticky gongs, I now have 3 little gunky cotton balls in a oil slick container just waiting to have their turn. Tonight I'm gonna drop one back in a gong and vape it at a 7 on the nano and see what happens. :science: I'll report back.

    To think, all these years I've been pouring these extra hits down the drain. :doh:

    Edit: Report- It works real good. :smug:

    I received my E-Nano today, it took just 10 days after placing the order to reach the UK and although I am delighted with the vape thus far (wow, what efficiency!) my order actually arrived incomplete (missing an extra adjustable stem) which I am obviously disappointed about.

    The package also had only partial address / shipping information listed on the box which is really bad considering I was sent 3 emails confirming full billing and shipping information, fortunately the package didn't go to one of the other two addresses that it could very easily have been confused with.

    Having previously emailed the epicvape customer service team over 3 weeks ago with an inquiry and never receiving a response I am hoping that there is a helpful member of their CS team who reads this thread and maybe acknowledges me or my email, the honeycomb stem is great but I did pay for an extra adjustable stem which I haven't yet received.

    The E-Nano is awesome though, I loaded it up 3 times in an hour before work and couldn't believe not only how efficient it was, but what lovely clean vapour came from it and also the pure clean high I felt. I already know that this is now my new daily driver and I am thoroughly delighted with it and that's using the glass stem many people seem to deem inferior.

    My one gripe would be (and maybe UK users could help out) my step down converter, it works fine but the buzzing (which all converters I've looked at seem to emit) is so irritating, has anyone come across a silent step down converter?

    Wow..
    Wow!! My experience with their CS has been wonderful and they were always very responsive. I got a GonG that just didn't fit right, quick response, instant shipment of a replacement. Easy Peasy.

    The CS rep I have worked with in the past was Carisa but she was at the general CS email of: customerservice@epicvape.com

    Let us know how this works out. By the by, I also have both the glass gauze and the adjustable bowl stems and prefer the adjustable bowl so make sure they send it to you!!

    Cheers

    Yeah that's the email I used earlier as it was the one used to send me order updates too, maybe my previous inquiry was just not important enough however they should (fingers crossed) respond to this as it is regarding an order.

    With it being a UK delivery though sending a replacement stem is not as straightforward either, costs to epicvape shipping it out are I imagine quite expensive and then I probably incur costs too as I imagine I'll have to pay customs charges and royal mail handling fees again, all for a single overlooked stem that I actually really want!

    I will want to get more extra stems too at some point as glass can break so easily but I ordered one of each so I could compare them before going on an accessories splurge later, depending on the CS team response I may just wing it and get extra stems now and maybe they can throw the missing stem in that package to save costs however I really want the Walnut stand when I do splurge and that is currently out of stock.

    I'm sure they'll get it sorted somehow though, mistakes do happen :)

    If you look at an adjustable bowl stem....its just a tube of glass with one end have a little bit of a lip (the mouth end, yeah?). I'm sure that there are glass blowers and vendors who can make/sell this item to you if getting it from the states is too difficult or expensive.

    Cheers

    It's not too difficult or expensive, more of an inconvenience and something I begrudge as the royal mail charge a £8/$10 handling fee on top of the 20% VAT and the reality is I have already paid both of those fees for an item that wasn't included.

    I also tend to prefer official products so I'll stick with those unless a specialist makes glass specifically ala Ddave and his mods. Cheers for the suggestion though Baron, it may be something for me to look into in the future :tup:

    Hello, forum, and thanks for the terrific reading material. Received my Nano on New Year’s Eve--a purchase largely inspired by browsing these messages--and have been greatly enjoying both its ease of use and almost ridiculous efficiency.

    That said, I do have a question/concern regarding the connection between the power cord and the unit. Have been noticing that the power light will occasionally go dark (sometimes after handling, but not always) and it takes a bit of wiggling before the light comes back on and stays steady. Issue's still at the annoyance phase, but it'd be nice to resolve it.

    Any thoughts or suggestions? I know from looking at pics online that the thicker part of the connector isn’t designed to fit flush with the unit, but I’ve got the cord attached as firmly as I can without overly forcing it. Time for a replacement cord? Do any DIY/Radio Shack enthusiasts out there have suggestions on an adapter between cord and unit?

    Thanks!

    My nano went cold after one year, it was never intermittent. That been said, warranty turn around was less than one week. Try to determine if it is the cord, or the unit that is failing before sending it off.
    It's been on 24/7 , for a year since being fixed.:)

    Sounds like you have an intermittent short either in the cord or the socket on the unit. Most probably in the cord.

    When the light goes out, try and wiggle sections of the cord without moving the connection to the unit. That would tell you if the break is in the cord itself. If the light goes on and off when you're wiggling the connection area, then it could be either.

    You can decide to order another cord and see if that solves your problem. If not, contact Andy and he will make it right. Your nano is still under warranty.

    I would be suspicious of the power light connection itself. If the heater stays on when the light is out, then the light may be the problem. Maybe Ace can comment on whether that's possible. I don't know how it's wired.

    Thanks for the quick responses and advice. The next time it happens, I'll check the cord, and also see if it stays warm when the light's off. Much appreciated!

    I thought mine had gone out the other day. It was running through most of the day and I had it turned down to 3 when not in use. My led doesn't remain lit when only giving it the amount of power that a 3 provides and doesn't illuminate (for my eyes anyway) until I raise it to at least a 4.

    I thought it was dead, but it wasn't. It was only in hibernation.

    Cheers Ace.

    My email wasn't answered on Friday or over the weekend so I followed up yesterday and received a reply from Athena today who has sorted it, she also noticed the shipping details were different too so she has said she will personally check the details before shipping it out which is kind.

    To clarify too, my previous unanswered email was from the end of February, it was just regarding a step down converter but there was definitely no response, no major biggie now though however it just made me a little more worried last week than I maybe should have been having previously received no answer to what I felt was an important question a month ago. I also know the vape manufacturers on this site are usually very very helpful which is why I also posted in here.

    If you'd still like to look at my order my username is in my email address however Athena seems to have sorted this for me now, thanks again Ace, I absolutely love the vape too, it's a great piece of kit :rockon:

    Very similar.... i'm not sure if I can really add anything more? The VHW is extremely delicate with a heater cover replacement cost over $100.

    I personally think both the VHW and e-Nano are top tier vapes, and i'd love to have both in my collection again, and plan to on 4/20!!!

    Do any e-nano owners here use the honeycomb all glass gong exclusively? Or the adjustable exclusively?

    I'd prefer the honeycomb I think, but remember airflow restriction issues, and the adjustable was a pain because i'd lose alot of herbs with stirring.
