    I recently switched from combustion to vaporization. I purchased a mflb and well my glass and hi have not been touched in ages. Atm I use mflb with pa at home. I've researched alot of vapes and I value efficiency as num 1 strong hits 2 and ease of use as 3. I like the look of epic vape e nano. Extreme q , da budah, and da vinci ascent. My vape will be traveling a good bit. Low odor would be great as I live at home and can use my mflb with pa in room np. Well im looking to hear others experiences with theese products. Im not looking to spend more then 250

    I have a DBV, and this week just got an e-nano. Love my Buddha but the E-Nano is super efficient and produces thick, effective vapor. It would be a great first desktop.

    The E-Nano sounds like a good fit if you want a desktop you can travel with.

    It's small, powerful, efficient, and doesn't need a VVPS for tempature changes like with the other current log vapes (Heat Island and Underdogs). I often brought it with me when I used to spend the day about two hours from home. Worked great. Now I use the Firefly for that purpose, but it's pricey.

    It'll be a lot easier travelling with a Nano than a DBV or Extreme.

    The Ascent... I have difficulty recommending, as I'm on my fourth unit... yet I only paid for one. :hmm: However, it has plenty of happy customers.

    The Solo should be considered, as it functions well as a home or portable unit, and is quite effiecient. Might work even better for you than the Nano.

    I have the Q and it is doing the job but there are lots of mods and toys that I have to make it work like I want. I spend about 20 minutes per session. I am tired of long sessions. I just ordered the Solo and I hope that will help. The reason I chimed in is as I started reading your post I was thinking he needs the e nano. :ninja: Got a good laugh when I saw you were leaning that way already. I can't speak for the others but I am wanting a log vape real bad.....The Solo isn't even here yet and I am looking at logs hard!....that doesn't sound right. :freak: So my vote out of those is E-Nano.

    Good idea! I think of the Solo as a portable, but it works as a traveling desktop too. Great selections of stems with the Solo too. Just might nudge out E-nano for first choice...

    The e-nano has a temp dial, so it would only combust if set at a high enough setting. I use the adjust-a-bowl that allows placing the flowers closer or father from the heating element as needed. It's super easy to pick up.

    1st Ascent - severe offgassing. Many of those in the first batch of pre-orders suffered from this issue.
    2nd Ascent - stopped charging / heating after one month of regular usage
    3rd Ascent - stopped charging / heating after 2 months of light usage

    Apparantly, this was also common for Ascents.

    My fourth unit, I have little faith in. I would sell it, but can't recoup enough of what it cost in the first place. I sure as shit wouldn't buy a secondhand Ascent with no warranty. At this point, I have it around as a backup to my Firefly.

    It can be a great vape, when it works. Fantastic flavor, quick warm-up time, decent battery life, and just plain fun to use. But, IF I COULD DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN, I wouldn't buy the Ascent in the first place.

    420democrat I warm it up maybe 5 minutes. I load what ever I am using ELB, wand or cyclone. I let it warm up a couple minutes. After 8 or so pulls on half packed wand today I reload and do it again. Wait couple minutes more like one cause I don't have patients, I go through this routine three or four times. It adds up especially if the kids are yelling at us or each other from the other side of the house or what ever. So yeah 20 minutes give or take. That's why I think the log vapes would be good for me. Enano warms up in two and a half minutes and gets busy right away. Sounds like what I need.
