    hi guys. ive had my hgl for a few months now and im loving it. works very much like an enano but with much better airflow. saying that i couldnt choose betwwen the two. when i want i tighter draw i pick up the e nano, if i want a nice easy draw i pick up the hgl.

    i got mine with a vvps (?) which im not a great fan of i wish it had some kind of light so i know if its on/working. atm i think it might have a small fault. i tend to leave my logs on 247 for weeks on end for ease of use and a few times recently ive picked up my hgl and its stone cold or not warm enough to vape. i leave it on about 80% power usually which is plenty. i was confused as to why this was happening so i stopped using the vvps and just use the adapter/charger directly. it runs a little hot this way but charring can be avoided by moving the screen. thats all well and good i can still use my log but the cord is just too short and i keeps falling off my desk. i obviously need a charger/adapter with a longer wire. can anyone tell me what type of adapter i should be looking for? im trying to look on ebay and amazon but dont know where to begin. lol
    also can anyone recommend a vvps that i can buy with a light?
    any help will be useful. tia

    I am a bit overbaked and missed the essence of your question.. I think it is 2.1mm like in the other logvapes but i dont have HGL so i dont know for sure.

    I confirm that any 2.1mm power jack 12v will work though, a mighty charger works well....

    thanks for your replies guys. I should have a mighty charger somewhere i just need to dig it up. not sure how long the wire is.... if its too short i have the size of the power jack (the correct term) so i can look on ebay or amazon for one.
    thanks again

    It is 2.1 and there are extension cords available.

    @blacksilversurfer Using an extension cord should cool your log a bit too (think you said it's running a bit hot straight from the wall).

    I didn't know they made extensions. I think that would be better suited for me. I think ill try to pick up one of those rather than having yet another charger in the house!
    I hope everyone is enjoying their logs. I'm glad the day I got both my hgl and enano. They are both a joy to use and have made me cut down how much I use due to the smaller bowl. I previously used a ssv and a lsv. Both of which are great but for now these two are my daily drivers.

    Yes, how good of you to mention this. It does indeed cool your log down, just enough to prevent charring perhaps, but that depends on your heat core. There are models that run hotter than others. The only time I have ever burnt my flowers was when I was using it without an extension cord but I heard that my log runs on the cooler side.

    @a_roberto89 Just send @RastaVapa a pm and he'll contact you when he reads it.

    Yesterday my power supply died so I ordered a new one. But this time I got a 1500mA one instead of a 1000 mA. Does anyone know if this is gonna be a problem with the HGL?

    edit: Just googled it myself. :mental: and the short answer is: It won't be a problem.

    the longer answer is:
    The voltage supplied has to be correct for the device. However, the actual current draw will be determined by the device itself, not the power supply.

    So, if you "should" use a 12V/1000mA power source, any power source of 12v and 1000mA or more should work.

    Yesterday I found out that my VapCap fits almost perfectly into the wong of the HGL. Really cool and it works quite good.
