    not really the place to compare head to head, but also not really fair to do so, since the Tubo has a larger bowl size and a much larger heater with glass involved as well. As we know the imp is no slouch, and way more portable, though the tubo would make a nice home unit with a different, but also great experience...

    The Imp compares very favorably. There isnt much performance gap, probably more of a personal preference.

    I dont know about AF, but surmyevic has been very reliable for me. I feel like the interface on mods themselves are kind of wonky, but once you setup your tcr it works great.

    Posting here as I posted on the impcognito thread. Wish these would merge.

    @mistvaporizer the dosing stem (I got bocote) with the mv capsules are the bee's knees brotha! Home run! Bravo!

    Question: would you be able to provide the dosing stem with an additional inch of length? I would love to stem pack my Impcognito. :brow:

    Hey guys I swapped my coils out for SS 316L staggered fused claptons by UD, but after adjusting settings for it in AF, it doesn't seem to recognize any temperature on the coil, yet the old coils still relay that info. Anyone know why that is?

    Edit: NVM was way off with my resistance and other settings hehe

    Edit: I have roughly 10 hours of fire time on the old coils. I'd say its good to replace before 5 however. I can see this data using Arcticfox

    Zoopps I got it! I had my resistance at 0.15 but my coils are at 0.118 yoop. For anyone looking these are NOT for stock coils!

    Hello everyone, first post here !

    How the Imp or the Impcognito preform in comparison to a Stempod ? The form factor of the Impcognito is really appealing for an on the go vape.

    Does the air-flow more restricted than the Stempod ?

    I love those convection design but I'm a little bit concerned about the glowing aspect and degradation of the coils. Is it possible to build a not-glowing coil with the Impcognito (I read that the recommended wattage is more around 25W which quite lower than the Stempod, maybe it's possible to get a no glow build without going too low in the wire gauge)

    Not sure about airflow compared to the Stempod but I feel the Impcognito is pretty wide open. Airflow only comes through those 2 holes so maybe it's not quite as open as some other convection vapes but I don't really think it's a "restricted" airflow.


    Having coils that don't glow was pretty important to me as well - I did mess with settings a bit, but I took my unit into a completely dark room and do not get any appreciable glow at the temperatures I use. I typically use 430F as my max temp and I wasn't able to see the glow at this temp in a completely dark room.

    Hope this helps.

    @RastaBuddha i don't know the airflow on the stempod but the Imp and Impcognito are similar. Each has 2 holes, the holes are 0.078"(2 mm) in diameter.
    I can be more specific if there is something you want to find out about

    I just discovered that the mouthpiece for O ring stems fits a 14mm j-hook really nicely, no need to switch to the WPA. But I continue to be amazed at how much the short beaded stem cools the vapor in any case. I like this little guy more and more.

    Still very happy with my Imp Beta, got some issues months ago to get it to work in TC mode but finally I was able to set everything properly.

    I pair it with an old MistVape Touch wood stem with the screen positionned for micro-dosing, it's a DD for quick hits during the day. I use it exclusively dry cause I found watertool create a sort of tunneling effect cause the added pressure.

    Sadly it stays at home most of the time... I would like to bring it with me but I'm working in a very dusty environment and I don't want to risk it to get polluted by dust... for that purpose I use cheapo vapes I'm not afraid to dirt or break. Although I already bring it with me for a concert or party but it's not the best vape for sharing cause frequents reload and learning curve (and, to be honnest, I don't want to get too much peoples to put their lips on my stem and take the risk of an accidental combustion too!).

    For dry on-demands hits the Imp get my favors but for water filtration or lung busters I prefer the Iheat... but, at the end, I grab the Imp a lot more... sadly I don't use my Touch a lot lately.

    Thanks for those answers, looks like the impcognito could be a good addition to my no combustion journey.

    Are stems from a Stempod compatible with an Impcognito ?

    Woohoo, managed to modify my Imp and sanded the chamber so it takes 14mm and Arizer stems comfortably. Now for a 3D flow stem and 3 MV capsules! :)

    Which stem design did you start with, O ring or ground glass?

    I have the o-ring stems. Had an arizer Solo WPA and both my glass stems broke. FIgured I could also fit all the aftermarket Arizer stems on if I sanded down the chamber a bit. Took a couple hours of careful work but it fits well!

    Both Stempod and Imp are pure convection, the biggest difference is the size bowl - with the Imp you basically don't have to stir the bowl in a session because of its small size (14mm stem)
