    ** Just one more @CarolKing vape tip that I'm just now discovering is good advice! **
    My 3rd?(who knows?)-hand Nano is acting up and requires more opening up. The wires are so old they're brittle! Guess I really need to buy a new Nano, so I can send Ol' Red in for an overhaul but I definitely want him back, dents and all. I always want to have at least one Nano in my arsenal for sure.

    IME, only soaking & rinsing my screens extends their life, maybe I use a dry toothbrush. Not my toothbrush of course, my wife's. I also find they retain their shape better. However I used to see more fraying and breakage of individual wires when I torched them. As always, others may have different experiences.

    Yes indeed it does. Hardly anything better for tasting a new strain/purchase than a clean Nano.

    I soak my screens in Iso and give them a good shake. I rinse them with tap water and they are good to go. I swap them every day or they get fouled and will cause it to almost combust. I am an all day user so cleaning the stem is short lived. The next day it will be golden again.

    A paminto jar or baby food size jar works great.

    I'm obliged to use my nano as discretely as possible so I don't use all the bells and whistles that I see on this thread. Just the standard stem with adjustable screens. Simple magic.

    I picked up a couple of bubblers when I first picked up my nano and had fun pulling them out when I had the opportunity but it's been a while 'casue I'm too lazy to have to be pulling the stuff out then putting it back then pulling it out then putting it back. So I appreciate seeing all the pics of the nice set ups you all throw toogether. That TAG adapter is looking absolutely ideal for the nano.

    My nano split way back but works like a champ so I haven't parted with it. I'm thinking about cutting a small notch into the top and another into the bottom to anchor knots on each end then wrapping it up in a yarn.

    I also happened to me, from the edges of the basket sometimes a piece is detached, in my opinion depends on two factors:

    1.- bad manipulation of the basket when removing and placing
    2.- a very used and old basket starts to deform and later to deteriorate

    As you see both factors are linked!

    respecting these two factor, I have not had this problem again

    I love the clean stems so I clean my glass often, I usually use a Chinese toothpick to take the basket from the nearest end, leaving this immersed in iso, then I filled the stem with iso covering one end, empty, I pass a paper with the Chinese stick dragging everything, then rinse with water.
    Take the basket immersed in iso and rinse it with water, dry everything and ready to new, I take 5min, and carefully nothing breaks and everything lasts a long, long time

    If you want I can take a pictures where it is clear my cleaning mode

    Thoroughly enjoyed the nano with my precision hydrabomb hyratube tonight. :D

    I only hope my wood never splits or my body outlet never breaks. :(

    Sounds like a good cleaning method,i'll try this.I do think part of the problem is like you said with the "removing and placing" the edges of the screens get worse the more it done.Thanks everyone for your thoughts and advice on this matter lots of good input.

    I liked the old screens better. They look uniform like a bottle cap. The new ones look like they were made from scraps. They have ragged sharp edges. I have both and replace daily.

    Ok, after almost a week with the nano it's question time for you seasoned vets.

    1) Let's say the nano is left on 24/7, set to 4.5 on the dial. If I increase it to 5, how quickly does it actually heat up to 5? 10 seconds? 60 seconds? Somewhere between?

    2) i tried to determine the lowest dial setting that begins to produce vapor, and it seems to be 4.5 for my unit. Is there any benefit to ever going lower than that if it doesn't produce vapor?

    3) I've been starting at 4.5 and hitting that with small sips until I get no more visible vapor. Then I'll increase it .25 at a time up to 6.5 and hit it once or twice at each step, presumably to capture the various cannabinoids that are released at the higher temperatures. I usually see little to no vapor at these higher steps however, so am I getting any benefit from those steps or am I just wasting my time?

    Thanks for any insights.

    Heat sometimes for me comes down to the cannabis I’m using. If my herb is dry I use a lower heat. Some folks like really high heat and some folks like using the low temps on the dial. It comes down to personal preference. My tempreture is anywhere from 5.75 and 6.50. I don’t stair step temps with my Enano but I do with my Solo 2.

    I’m guessing it would take a minute or two to heat up one number of a degree on the dial. I don’t know that for a fact. My Enano is left on 24/7.

    Different electrical outlets may give you a slightly higher or lower heat level. Some nanos may vary as well.

    I have some Granddaddy Purp in my Enano right now and using temp 6.25. Also using the reg stem. The vapor flavor is awesome. I don’t like harsh vapor, if my vapor is too harsh I turn down the temp. The moisture in your cannabis makes a difference as to your heat.

    Edit
    I use my Enano mainly as a session vape. I give my bud a stir about half way through my session, that will freshen the load.:2c:

    After a while using the long stem:sherlock:, I can say that I prefer this to the short steam; the long stem is more comfortable:rockon:, easier to see the steam:rockon: and I would even say that I have a cooler steam:rockon: ... in general its use is a bit better for my taste :tup:!

    I need some help from other 220V people here: I had to stop using the e-Nano because the whistling sound of my 220v to 110v converter (100W) is ruining the sensation. It is so loud that my dog leaves the room and it annoys me a lot. It is the second voltage converter that I have owned in my life and the last one (nearly 25 years ago) made the same horrible sounds. Is that normal behaviour or is that a question of price and quality? I spent around 40 Euros (did buy cheap, but not the cheapest one), but also did not want to spend the same amount of cash on a converter, than I did for the vape itself.

    Don't get me wrong: I would have no problem with a slight whistle or buzz, but this one is close to unbearable. All the 220v people in the house - which converter do you use? I would love to hear about your recommendations! Thank you very much in advance!

    Okay.....after I got settled in with my Nano I didnt need the forum any more......I thought...:freak:..So glad I am back as I am learning so much more. I didnt know there were two stems. Is the long stem longer than the original? I have two stems but one does not fit right so its never used. :( I also use two stem guards on my stem.....what else did I miss?

    All kinds of shit! We can ramble on for quite a bit, especially when we're :razz:

    The long stem is longer than the standard but I don't have one so I can't give you specifics. I'm almost 95% water bubbler. I don't like doing it dry. (For the bastards at the Out of Context thread :goon:). I'm sure someone else with chime in. I don't remember when epic started selling them but it was probably after your last visit.

    BTW, checking in with the homegrown. My house Bubba Kush through the nano with the new TAG adapter.

    my converter barely cost € 15 ( local store ) and if it emits a slight buzz, it took many months to be noticeable ... at first you could not hear anything .. at present with the house in silence and concentrating I perceive that buzz, in realite, I never give account of him.
    I'm going to try to find the image of when I bought my nano -> and when i presumed of silent converter ... ignorant that I went :bang: -> E-Nano from Epicvape

    You can see a photo of the visual difference between the short and the long here - >>

    I also received a stem that did not fit and the epic team replaced it with another perfect one in a record time :clap::clap::clap:

    Lowered my screens in my gong and one of my stems to hold 2-3 times more than the fixed glass screen position. Do not know why I waited so long to do that. :doh:
    Nearly hurt myself last night with some stuff called Blue Dynamite. :whoa:
    Micro dose, Maxi dose, the Nano says bring it.
    Also like when I wake in the middle of the night and see that little blue glowing led. Beckoning...

    Been using my bubbler way more since getting the TAG adaptor. Love it.

    I hate that damm buzzing..whining..whatever you call it. It is the only downside to nano life.

    I got mine for under 50 bucks. I noticed the tone/volume of the whine changes depending on which cables touch (and what they touch, metal seems to cause buzzing...or sound system wires...)

    Crazy electricity, make mine a quiet one!
    I can say I need a shab today. Hashdab. With cotton, the nano on 7-8 delivers thick goodness! Inhale as fast and hard as you need. You will succeed.

    thankfully the nano gets hot fast, so after 5 minutes or more you can already get really satisfying results - and I can turn off the converter *ahhh* silence.

    I mean usually I'm listening to music or something LOUD .
    So it's not a bother - but you know. We hear it.

    The nano I trust, the converter..eh...
    I don't think it's possible to "convert" energy in a small & quiet way...but it's worth it for me. I'd go to extreme lengths to use my nano HA HA HA
    :peace:

    @Qwin8 Nice one! Excellent hack, and justification for owning many vaporizers. Top marks for you! :tup:

    So glad I got lucky on the converter lottery, mine buzzed quietly at first and settled down to almost silent. Maybe that happened when I put it in its own plug? Too scared to move it now, it might start screaming! I got mine for ~£10 but I would've happily paid more for guaranteed silence. Nobody makes one?!

    @SloJimFizz The bridge adapter I got from vapefiend is no more. :rip: Initially I thought it was quality. But after it broke it was easy to see many areas where the glass was paperthin. I guess I'm glad I got it cheap! Now I'm thinking more about going with your TAG adapter. I really like the design of the bridge adapter, but I will go with OGB or possibly planetvape, if it's quality glass. I know Mike uses good quality raw glass and his stuff is remarkably tough. But I can't recommend vapefiend's version at any price.

    @Whissmu so happy to see you survived Spannabis and can still type! Looked like a blast my friend!

    I have one on for at least 1 year during last three years

    Is a cheap anonymous one from amazon, no more sold
    It is a 150w though, maybe this is the difference or i got lucky

    Edit: sorry too up :) I want to say my step down converter is silent and only slightly warm

    Hey buddy, I've been told they all do it, but I don't believe that. My first one was horrible and after bitching to ebay, the seller sent a new one. Much better, and it seems like it got quieter over time. For 40€ I would take it back and get a cheaper one online, yours sounds like it's unreasonably loud. If you can't be in the same room, it's unusable imo. Remember, the Nano only pulls about 20-25W so even doubling that for redundancy, you just need a little 45-50W converter. Good luck because I hate you're not able to use it!

    He says, as the TV blasts louder by the day and the doorbell strangely doesn't make a noise anymore, even when all the (mute) people come calling and just stand their miming like idiots.:rofl:

    Sorry buddy, couldn't resist. Hope you are doing alright in your neck of UK. Just prepping for my evening vapor load up before dinner- gonna be boiled broccoli, tinned tuna warmed with coconut oil, oregano, garlic and spices, with roasted pecan nuts, black olives and olive oil, plus 5 grams of my new Redmond salt to sprinkle on.

    Yum can't wait!:drool:
