Glad to hear that you are back in the Elite game! A member did PM me that his recently purchased Elite died very shortly after he bought it. He said he it just stopped heating up so it's not just a 220v thing that these can fail. The only way I was using my Elite is with the PV GonG.... even the high output pump is gathering dust. I just never use the tong or bags/whips, and much prefer the simplicity of the glass gong and a bong. However, the vapour still isn't very dense and my wife became frustrated with not getting medicated fast enough, and requiring too many airy hits, so the Elite has been on the backburner for a while now! May have to dust her off and give it another go! I do miss those powerful espresso mode hits through the bong!
