First purchase success! The first two Vapes I ever purchased, 5 years ago, are still my go-to Vapes.

    The Silver Surfer and The Mighty. I've read enough horror stories on these forums, ones bad enough that I conclude there are probably thousands of potential vaporizers still combusting because of their first couple of tries vaporizers. I'll even admit I didn't even like my original Silver Surfer because of the weird bowl and heater cover that came with mine, plus the learning curve. But once I got a totally differently designed bowl, I was now getting huge consistent clouds instead of either no vape or actually combusting. Big difference a tiny change can make for the same vape.

    I now have the Super Silver Surfer and the automated air sysyem is way better than I expected. Left my first one on for years, full blast, without any problems. Still works perfect. And The Mighty. Portable Vapes are notorious for being prone to dying and unreliable. The Mighty still works just as good as it did day one and I get nice hits from it, easy to use and maintain. Seems like I got lucky that the first two Vapes I purchased are still the only two I ever use anymore. Had a vapeexale Cloud and it died in like a week. Those bowls were annoying to pack up anyway. Did like how it operated though, mostly because of the ease of use, but now my silver surfers both do exactly what I thought I was getting from the Cloud, so I feel surprisingly well covered with only 1 plug in and 1 portable. What are y'alls go to plug-in and portable?

    Edit: I use a female wand and female heater cover for the SSVs

    My first was the HerbalAire 2.2 I still use on a daily basis. I got it as a gift for 2012 christmas, one of the best gift I ever got!

    Some vaporizers can have lengthy careers because they are well made and are easy for the individual user to maintain and tweak to meet their needs and preferences. The corded Buddha fills that slot for me both as a home heavy hitter and small dose solo machine with just some glass switching. For a potable I still default to a MFLB because I get acceptable performance, which brings up the point that just because a vape is preferred by an individual doesn't mean it's the best vape for everyone.
