    The website pricing is in USD, however there is a promotion for "at par" for Canadians at the moment.

    I will be testing and reviewing the 6S. Someone more qualified will be able to chime in on the 5s/6s differences, however the 6S is supposed to be quite the device, so I can't wait to see what it's all about!

    350 USD holy cow. Hope it's everything you dreamed it to be. Bit pricey.. no?

    Yes the "s" means they are both 25w units the difference is primarily the turbo/boost button add to the body...what the provides the user is a bit more control or involvement in the extraction process....which also means paying attention to your technique.... It's cool almost fun to use but I would so much rather have battery swapping..... again both are 25w...my sis liked it a lot...:peace:

    My demo unit

    http://imgur.com/nRUxGuW

    Yep! This was an immediate complaint I had....$349 cdn is a bit more reasonable, but as a direct competition to the Grasshopper at $185usd i'm not too sure still. I'm looking forward to comparing the two, as well as the more expensive S&B Mighty and Crafty portables.

    I hope it's everything I dream it to be too! But from the videos I have seen, I can see why there is a cult following. This is a vape that provides an experience like no other me thinks, especially for those crossing over from the combustion side. I look forward to creating some seriously thick milky water tool videos!

    The INH4 was my fault driver before losing it. Really enjoyed that device a lot, but my VAS took hold and I now have like 6 different vapes.

    So I had some great dialogue with Greg yesterday and just got me more and more excited about this device. He sent me some real usage videos, more photos, etc. but i'm going to wait until I have the unit in my hands before I do the same things.

    One thing that i'm not sure how much i'll be receptive to is the amount of conduction that occurs with this vape. I did notice that with a water tool you need to hit it in "bursts" not just one big rip like i'm used to. So akin more to puffing on a cigar like i've seen some of you do in videos with the INH. I'm looking forward to it!

    Indeed because they use very different methods conv vs cond our usage technique will also need to be a bit different....the GH is predominately conv w/some cond characteristics but not really enough to concern ourselves with.... INH is primarily cond however it also has heat chambers where the air is also heated and turns out it is enough to concern ourselves with....
    As a result the GH shines while being pulled on steady where as the INH shines when stoked like a cigar or pipe allowing an extra moment for the air to get heated a bit then pulled in where the cond has been hard at work..... Again caution especially with the added turbo function technique / timing is very important be leery of too much time as over cooking is just around the corner....
    Once you get your rhythm down you'll be rockin it....

    Oh and as for chasing the massive bong hit..... Not to worry the beast can definitely deliver if you really want it to just roll it up to say 8 8.5 through water of course otherwise it will be a coughing fest.... Enjoy & be patient grass hopper..... sorry couldn't resist from the old kungfu back in the day.... Thurs @ 8pm never missed it :love::peace:

    I was chatting with Greg the other day and he indicated that it's in the packaging stage! He's including the WPA, aero capsule, glass capsule, and a pack of the standard poly caps!

    I'm off of my Grasshopper honeymoon due to reliability issues so the timing of the 6S is perfect!

    I'll be sure to update this thread as soon as it lands for my immediate first impressions, and then on to the demo and testing/review! I have 14 high quality strains on deck for it lol

    I never liked the aero capsules in any way at all.
    I do love the standard capsules though, and I am certain that the performance of the 6S will blow you away.
    The glass capsule is fun too, but I am a standard guy where the INH is concerned.

    I couldn't agree more it seems like it would have been a great idea but it always seems to make me cough... The more air I let in the more it tickles....gf & I both thought so.... She too likes the standard caps....me I love the glass...:tup:

    Well, after almost a month....the eagle (INH6S) has finally landed!!!!

    First impressions are quite positive.... very professionally packaged and shipped. I'll put up some pictures later when time permits. However, I must admit - this is some of the best packaging i've ever seen for a vaporizer....very much like a quality Apple product. I think perhaps the Grasshopper has similar packaging, but still not as nice as the Inhalater. Very classy.

    Greg really hooked me up with accessories...everything needed was in the box....capsules, extras, aero capsule, glass capsule, WPA, and the best quality longest micro USB charge cable i've ever seen. Also included was a "white USB plug in charger plug" that looks like my Apple one. Instruction manual is basic, but adequate. I did need to contact Greg to help explain the pulse modulation a little better.

    So first impression looked great....even better that it arrived fully charged and ready to go! Unfortunately, my Lift Innovations grinder is still in shipping, so I had to resort to my only grinder - which produces a very rough coarse shred, but it's doable.

    I'm not sure how quick previous iterations of this device heat up, but other than my GH's, this thing heats up FAST! Not 5 seconds fast, but it was faster than 30 secs i'm pretty sure. And that's to max temp (9). The form factor kicks ass, the feel and quality of the device are top notch....much better than the previous INH004 I had many years back. LOVE the top cap and how it attaches to the bottom temp dial for even more ergonomics!

    I had to try everything for the first time, so tried out the polyimide capsule, WPA, and the glass capsule. I think the glass capsule is my favourite of them all.... I had the best sessions and experience with it, with the best looking ABV for my tastes. I tend to start alot higher on the dial since i'm a high temp user, but get way better ABV when I start lower and temp step.

    I'm still getting the hang of the Inhalater and there is a small learning curve since this vape is so unique in its function. It doesn't have a massive thermal mass, but rather a light heating technology that will appeal to flavour savour's and those not chasing massive dense clouds. It will produce and billow out clouds, but this is a conduction hybrid vape so your technique must compensate. It reminds me of the Arizer portables in this respect, as I don't have much experience with conduction vapes.

    I must say, i've been extremely impressed by Greg and Pharmacor Technologies, I didn't really know what to expect, but everything works perfectly, and reliability is yet to be determined with time, as is their customer service/warranty rma process.

    I think the INH6S is a pretty underrated and awesome portable vaporizer, however still feel that the price of the device is not in line with reality for a vaporizer like this. I think that S&B charge too much as well, however they can justify it, just look at their popularity and sales, regardless of durability and reliability.

    I feel that i've not done proper justice to the Inhalater, even though I think it's a decent device, I will be passing on this demo (with permission from Greg) to our friend @lazylathe for further review and testing. We both have similar interests and tastes in vapes, however he will be able to provide more technical/science based feedback that will be a benefit to the thread and FC community!

    Thanks again to Greg and Pharmacor for allowing this beast into the wild for us to sample and torture test! :rockon:

    The Inhalator LIVES! :tup:

    I can give a hint about how long.
    My INH04 lasted 1 year, and was replaced under warranty.
    The XP has been working since I got it 3.5 years ago.
    My INH05 has been working daily for almost 3 years.
    My 06 has been working for 2.25 years.
    My 06S has been working for just at almost 2 years.
    I use each at least once a day.

    Wow I didn't even know the 6S has even been out for two years! I thought this was a brand new release!

    The raid on our home happened on May 18th, 2015.
    Greg sent me an INH 06S a month after the raid.... as we did not know I would be getting ALL vapes back from the "Raiders".
    It was one of the earlier ones, but a few individuals had gotten one slightly before me.

    What temperature settings do you use? Do you use the pulse? And are you getting even ABV? I seem to only get decently even ABV with the glass capsule.

    I use temp setting 6.5 on all INH units.
    I use the pulse only occasionally, if the hits are getting weak, and I do not want to turn the dial up.
    I do get even ABV, and by the time I finish my couple of sessions with one capsule the ABV is very dark.
    I only use the glass long capsule about once a month... I like using the polymide, for the short vapor path, and it cleans up very fast by a brief shake in Iso in a small vial.
    Usage of capsules was described at http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/inhalater-inh05-5s-6.13247/page-59#post-686816
    Cleanup of Polymide capsules is at http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/inhalater-inh05-5s-6.13247/page-67#post-712186
    I bought MANY Polymide Capsules, thinking they would wear fast, but I am still on my Original capsule on all units which I use daily ... with exception of my XP... I broke that capsule by rough handling, and so that unit is on it's second capsule.
    The original old style glass capsules that did not stay on market long I use for hash or kief... about once a week.

    Thanks Vito! I can actually see the uneven ABV when I take the capsule out as i'm vaping, anything sticking to the sides of the capsule get direct conduction and overvape. However, I have to admit i'm usually a coarse rough shred until my mailman arrives :) I think I need a finer or medium grind to be optimal with this vape.

    The battery seems to never wanna die?

    Mine doesn't want to die either!
    Perhaps you are vaping at a higher temp than I do.
    What is your temp?

    I've tried the lower spectrum but can't get any real visible vapour, so i'm up at 7+. I think part of it has to do with my lack of patience and i'm not very familiar with conduction style vapes save for the Arizer Solo/air.

    I think I need to start lower, and temp step up.

    I found that below 6 I do get great flavor, but it takes a long time to build up visible Vapor.
    6 has been the lowest I start out at.
    No... I agree that the lower temps do not kick out the thick vapor.
    I have started at 6.5... then after a few minutes of vapor at the setting, I can back down to 5 or even 4 and still get visible (but lighter) vapor.
    My habit is to use 6.5, and finish 2 and sometimes 2.5 full sessions with one well loaded capsule.
    Then I call it quits for that load.

    Thanks Vito, looks like I have some more testing to do! My Lift Innovations grinder just arrived with all 3 grind plates so that will definitely help.

    Hi friend, did you read the last few pages of this thread?! it happens to me too to not read all the posts although....

    I'm happy to say Greg replied to me after several months without any news. He was very busy and seems really happy about all the work done. Maybe I'll get a 06S soon...

    ps: edited to don't hurt anybody!
