    Hello everyone! Ive been debating purchasing another vape! The one i have just does not cut it. I currently have the Iolite vaporizer. My biggest complaints are how long it takes to vape a full pack and how it doesn't actually keep the bowl at the same temp. What i mean by that is that no matter how often or hard i hit the iolite it reheats at the same time interval. Another thing i don't like but is not a deal breaker is that its on or off. I would like to be able to take 1 hit and leave it again, but like i said its not a must. I was one of the guys that got an ascent when it first came out and returned it because of defects. Im not going to get one now because i feel it did not live up to the hype that it was supposed to be. The past week i was committed to the MFLB because of the one hitter and its been tested and proven. But now i am not so sure. If anyone can suggest vapes to look at that would be great. Im considering the FireFly, MFLB, and Elevape SV. I just can't decide, too many decisions and no real "BEST vape". Thanks again!

    Buy the Airizer Solo - seriously just go do it. I swear every other person on this site has the Solo or had it in their collection at one point and has spoken highly of it. I've tried the Iolite, definitely wasn't my favorite vape.

    Edit, just saw your comment about the Ascent. For the record I have one, it died after a month, I got a replacement, but already moved on to other vapes - the flavor was great, but it took way too long to get medicated (30+ minute sessions!).

    Start with the solo, buy one used if the price is a concern - these days they are rock solid portable vapes

    You didn't really say what your stealth requirements for this portable are.... If it's not a concern I would say go with a lotus!

    the lotus is butane correct? i would like to stay away from butane. I snowboard and would like to take a vape with me if i want too(butane and elevation don't mix well. stealth isn't a huge deal. Usually when i smoke its dark or around home or some other place that I'm not really visible. Portability is my main concern. I forgot about the solo. Yes i have heard very good things about that, it should be on my top list. Another thing i want to mention is that I would prefer something that you can hit and not worry about. My biggest fear with the FF is reading how everyone removes the lid every couple hits and packs and stirs the bowl. That seems like a lot of work for me and the portability of it kinda goes out the window when you have to do so much during the session.


    Edit: if I pull the trigger on the solo how much should I look for? I can find ebay deals for 130 140 from "authorized dealer" and "2014" model?

    The mflb comes closest to hitting all your talking points. And it's cheap enough that it is worth the risk.

    Solo or lotus man. Idk much about elevation but I can tell you the solo is fool proof, long battery life, impossible to combust, huge vape clouds (all my combustion friends ask to hit my solo and not any of my other vapes ) small load great flavor, if your going snow boarding I'd suggest a Woden stem or a case or something though


    I got solo from aromatek, 130 free 2 day shipping, they've even replaced a unit for me.

    Okay how does the solo do with small bowls? I'm going to get the solo if it does okay not completely packed. When I smoke......solo (sorry bad pun hahaha) I only fill about .2 maybe.

    The solo is on Massdrop for the next few days. $124.99 shipped.
    https://www.massdrop.com/r/BPFP8E

    Check the website. they ship after the drop is over. I wasn't in a huge hurry so that worked for me. I ordered mine tonite.

    I suggest a solo from puffitup if you want a sesh vape, or a magic flight, again from puffitup, for those quick tokes to get right.

    if you get a solo go get one of Ed's wooden stems. They mate with 14mm glass, increase air flow and won't break in your pocket while you are on that mountain...it's all I use with mine. Add a rubber band and a battery cap and you have all you need for when you get to the top.
