    I agree 100%
    Most conductive portables can fit a good amount of herb, and are self enclosed... sessions can be halted and re-initiated easily, and yes... they are more convenient, for the lack of need to stir or shake.
    I too love convection flavor and effect also, but you hit the nail on the head about convenience.

    Got my 06S today!

    Only done one session with the polymide capsule and another with the glass capsule, both sessions using the pulse feature. I need more practice but that's a great add to keep the temp low and to avoid constant overcooking and it seems to work rather well in regard to the quality of the taste produced.

    But it's still the heavy hitter it was if you crank it up at 7 with a bong!

    I'll make a full review soon....

    @PPN! :rockon:Looking forward to your review! I'm on a break now, but I never realized just how much of an advantage the pulse feature is now! You're right, no need to crank up the temp and roast bowl too fast. Just keep it lower, and pulse!

    Did you get the WPA as well? I still think Inhalater's packaging is Apple quality!

    Here my review of the Inhalater 06S sent to me by Kory from NamasteVapes (they will retail the 06S and is the first retailer to sell the Herbalizer 220v version).

    Yes the packaging is nice but nothing impressive imo, I'm thinking the Xp packaging was better (I didn't received my 05 in the box). In the box there was:
    -Inhalater 06S
    - 2 standard capsules
    - 1 glass capsule
    - 1 pack of cleaning straw
    - 1 pack of hygienic straw (not the blue one but a cheaper material)
    - 3 iso whips for cleaning
    - usb cord (yes, amazing quality)
    - wall adapter
    - user guide

    The unit is exactly the same size and design the 05 is, the only difference is the pulse button. It's a shame they didn't put the activation led on the bottom where is the charging led to help the user to set the right temp in the dark. Here a pic of the 06S close of the Xp, both with a glass capsule :

    [​IMG]

    I'll pass quickly on the fast heating time (similar to the 05), the faster charging time the 05 is, the still very convenient polymide capsule system and the very good battery life.All nice features!

    The most important feature of this vape is the pulse button, it makes all the difference. If you use the unit like the previous versions this vape is exactly the same than a 05, if you stay low you will get some tasty hits but with a lack of vapor and efficiency if you bump the t° you will get rewarded with large clouds but taste will be cashed pretty fast..... Pulse feature is the answer Inhalater found to solve this issue: Set your 06s low (level 1 to 3) and press the pulse button (the led will blinks) while ready to take a hit and start to hit it while the led is solid the more you keep the finger on the button the thicker the vapor. After a 10mn session using exclusively the pulse feature (level3 8s inhale with pulse button activated during half of the hit) I got a nice taste all around the session, visible clouds (and somewhat large!) and a very clear abv with still a lot of goodies.

    Habitually I use pulse feature for the 1st 10mn session and after that I set my 06S to 6-8 for the next 10 mn session for bigger clouds but less tasty, sure. I think a 10mn tasty session(20-25 hits) using a 2/3 fully loaded glass capsule is pretty amazing for a portable.
    I'm a fan of the glass capsule and use polymide only on the go or for a lung buster session, I'm under the impression the Inhalater works better with the glass capsule....but maybe that's only cause I prefer it!

    A few vape offer this pulse feature, in my knowledge out of the 06S there is only the Venus and the Apollo, both halogen powered vapes , let me know if I mistaken....

    Can I say I'm impressed with the taste quality I got, for me nothing look wrong with this unit except the minor issue about to set the dial in the dark, the no-user replacable battery and.... the price!... which is 349$ on Inhalater website...since Pax3 or IQ are 250$ it is understandable this small company ask a bit more but I think a 299$ pricetag would more reasonnable and will help for sale.

    I want to add Inhalater is a smaller company now , Greg told me he is the only full-time employee and he's assembling all the unit himself.

    In conclusion I can say the 06S is already listed in my DailyDriver list and I'm convinced it will be used for a very long time!

    ps: Just noticed the 06S is not yet avalaible at https://www.namastevapes.fr/ but I'm sure it will be for sale pretty soon.

    The system is unique and easier to maintain than the air.
    You can fit more meds in the polymide capsules than in the air ( or most portables).
    It is not an inexpensive tool, however.
    Greg the owner/creator has provided good customer service to his clients.
    If the air makes you happy, there is no urgency in your desire for a vape.
    The Inhalater series (I owned all..... but my 04 lost the charging port)
    I still use the XP, 05, 06 and 06S on a very regular basis.

    The trouble with using these pages to make a decision is that it's pretty much the same people in here, i can't work out who has actually risked their hard earned money (can make a difference when reviewing an item) and actually bought one, no diss intended, it is unclear.

    As you mention having the Air, this review from a while back might be of interest to you, i think the unit still uses the same materials as the 06, minus the carbon fibre sticker. I tried to find a recent review to link you to that is not on here but drew a blank

    http://vapesterdam.com/review/inhalater-portable-vaporizer-review/

    And before you say it's just me bearing a grudge etc, if an outlandish statement like

    can be said in a thread where the owner is banned and there are pages of dissatisfaction, then someone has to be the reminder :) Think i'm up to £91.50 now :)

    Just fitted one of the polymide capsules in my X-Max, went in width wise, capsule has between 1mm t0 2mm extra height, so negligible load amount difference, don't know about the Air though. When i did take a closer look at an Air unit it felt way better quality though.


    So less staff and the same person at the helm, i wouldn't see that as a selling point at all!!


    Anyway, time for my Perseveration meds :) peace out

    I popped back in cuz I just knew Ruta couldn't let some of those out landish statements fly....:horse:
    I'm so glade you like it but I've posted this in the past this very same concept can be performed manually...simply take your XP set it low then just before your ready to take a inhalation turn it up say 2 #'s then just as you'd stop the pulse you simply manually turn it back down.... Repeat...
    I'm with you using a glass cap basically gives us that 100% glass path we all love so much... So taste is improved but it also dampens some of the massive overdose of conduction heat which also AIDS in preserving flavor longer.... Yea...
    I'm again right there with you this is a bit over priced for a feature that really can be done manually but the biggest complaint I have is loss of hot swappable batteries.... It just doesn't work for me... I'd have to have (& did) 2 or 3 spares then if you forget to charge 1 then your screwed......
    So I'll always choose the 5s & superglue the ribbon cable it's been rock solid for months now....no issues what so ever fingers crossed:tup:

    OS

    Edit: to offer clarity I have purchased 15 inhalaters over the years as I have given them as gifts but clearly I have been a fan from the very 1st time I tried XP Q2 as it single handedly freed me from smoking were other vapes could NOT a little something was always not quite there....:2c::peace:

    I get excellent customer service... sorry you did not.
    I bought 3 of my 5 Inhalaters .... and 2 were gifts from FC members.
    Out of the hundreds of patients that I work with some are not low income and they purchase vapes.
    Just shy of a dozen local patients love their Inhalaters and swear by the service they receive.
    A matter of opinion.. I have 3 Airs, and I never reach for one, except to lend it to a vaporist that needs a portable temporarily.
    @Ruta you have spoken your piece (and repeated some of the same phrases). We all understand and have since you began expressing your disdain in March of 2016.
    You even in the post at http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/inhalater-inh05-5s-6.13247/page-97#post-940365 began insinuations that anyone that liked their unit was doing a commercial advertisement by speaking their pleasure.
    Also there are (as you have been reminded more than once) threads to express thoughts like:
    This thread is not about the owner or his ban from FC for not using Social Network appropriate behavior.
    The thread is about a portable vaporizer.
    A really good one.
    I have almost 100 vapes to choose from, and I like my Inhalaters as one of my favorites.
    Coming in and repeating your story repeatedly will not make me like it less, nor will it convince others that like it to stop liking it.

    Although they are very similar in that they are both hybrids impo I see the Inhalater design offering a bit more of the conventional properties also quite a bit more focused on heat transfer this In addition to the more narrow log type chamber does suggest that the Inhalater is very likely a bit more responsive/reactive but again that can turn around and bite you if your not cognate or paying close attention.... more power & quicker more efficient heat transfer can ruin flavor if your not careful....

    It's also lighter & the form factor a bit smaller all which make it more pocket friendly....

    Beyond that & @Vitolo's easy of use & maintenance points their pretty close to the same.....
    :cool:

    Hi @Old School I understand your "manual" method but I think the pulse button is more convenient, in fact what you describe is doable with every temp controlled conduction/hybrid vapes.

    Greg recommanded me to try to put a chunk of hasch in a capsule without anything else... I tried it with my Xp&glass capsule at level 7 and was rewarded with smooth tasty clouds for a 10mn session. I stirred a bit and took some more hits on 8.The load was pretty small although. A tastier way to use some non-full melt hasch but clouds are smaller than used with coton, and that's a pain to clean if not made quickly after the session. More for connoisseurs than for tinkerers!

    @Vitolo very well said, and I agree my customer service has been impeccable, however the unit just works so unlike some other very well known state of the art portables that are in the garage far more than in the hands of its users, I have not had to RMA it.

    It really is interesting how we all have such difference preferences for vapes, and tolerances for manufacturers. Some people love this vape so much more than an Arizer portable, as can be seen in the posts in the thread, and others don't.

    Maybe I'm a bit biaised since the Xp was the first true portable vape I enjoyed (previous was the mflb, Flashvape and T1) and I take care of all of the Inhalaters. I own!

    The 05 is a very good value vape as well and I think you can find it heavily discounted on some shops.... although the 06 fixed some flaws like the charging time (the 05 can take +24h to charge full!) and the poor low temp hits.

    @Old School, is that aimed at me, or vitolo, we both appear to be flogging that horse :sherlock:


    These are a couple of your posts @Vitolo , as we're both looking through each others posts. Shall i dig deeper and list a few of your repeats, for there are many, mostly how you love this unit and use all 4 of your remaining units like all the time.

    I had not responded for a few posts until you came in here with your usual company spin!! I have never denied it works at producing vapour, i'm just not going to watch you write 'adverts' for Inhalater, maybe word them differently??

    It's dead in here apart from some regulars because hardly anybody cares for this overly plastic vape, it didn't work very long for me, and others, without the magic button so can't see added electrics making it more durable.

    I have took my unit apart and seen just how plasticky it is, those ridges on the outside are to keep the plastic from getting uncomfortably hot, yet surrounding the heater inside is a tube of the same plastic, how hot must that be getting?? Should i upload pics or is there a specific page for that?

    When you posted this, i thought we was gonna start a fun 'word of the day' in here, i had one ready, it's Accountability.
    Success In Any Business Is All About Accountability - Forbes

    I still stand by the fact that future investors in this vape need to know the type of company they are buying into, then they can make an informed decision whether to invest in a tin pot organisation or not. Or don't you think it's relevant that a companies boss can't represent himself in here when they want you to buy their overpriced unit?

    Anyway £93 now

    Peace

    I have pretty much learned that for any positive post about these vaporizers, you will come in here and start pointing fingers again.
    I will repeat once again....
    This is a thread about a vaporizer and not about a person.... a personal grievance, or to warn people of gloomy outcome if they buy the vape. It is for exchange of thoughts, and all of us were warned already by @vtac that there is a negative feedback thread. He also said Post your gripe once, and that is it. That is the rule for that thread.
    Please, allow the rest of us to enjoy a place where fellow Inhalator enthusiasts can exchange our great experiences, ask each other questions, and provide hints, without concern that the positive posts be intermingled with your interruptions.
    Yes you should dig deeper.
    @vtac did not limit the number of positive things or experiences we have had with any vape that a thread is about. He did however limit the negative things we had to say to ONCE.
    We all are free to sing praise to this vape daily.
    We all are limited to ONE negative post.

    NOW THEN....
    To get back on topic.....
    I am having trouble today deciding which of these 4 will go with me to the Post Office!
    [​IMG]
    I'm thinking the 06S.
    It has gotten less love that my older more familiar units.
    Today will be it's turn!

    And the XP still has it's own thread at http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/inhalater-xp.8386/page-130#post-534871 that is 149 pages long!
    I love my XP, and unlike this thread, you will find no negative posters popping up each time a happy vaporizer user makes a positive comment.
    If you are one of the lucky ones that after all these years still has a working INH04 it too has a separate thread still open at: http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/the-inhalater-inh004-phytotherapeutic-rechargeable-portable-vaporizer.5668/page-38#post-277420
    While discontinued in production the thread has a healthy 108 pages.

    Back to 05, 06, and 06S...
    Back when Inhalater had their crowdfunding project, I donated and I got my 3 glass tubes.
    They were new at the time, with an hour-glass shape, and cut edges that were slightly sharp.
    I kept one, and shared the others with a couple of you here. It got hot fast, so I left a length of SSV tube on the mouth side.
    Later I bought one from the Inhalater website, when they became longer, with polished edges, and polymide on the outside of the herb end, for even heating.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I still like using the polymide more, for it's short vapor path, and it's easy clean method
    ( http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/inhalater-inh05-5s-6.13247/page-67#post-712186 )
    BUT.... I do use the two types of glass capsules.
    The older hour glass one, I use for kief and hash (that is why it is "dripping honey" inside)
    The taller glass stem, I use once in a blue moon, for tasting a new special strain that comes to me.
    I use the polymide caps many times daily, while the glass ones each get used only about once a week.

    You're treading on the forum's Be Nice rules with your posts in this thread. It's clear that you don't like this vaporizer and that's fine. What isn't OK is making it personal and accusing members of being shills for the product, even if it's subtle jabs.

    I'm going to give you a break. No warning point this time, but you'll be thread-reply banned from this thread for a month. If you choose to participate in this discussion after that time you'll need to be more respectful of other members and the forum rules.

    Animosity is not needed or welcome. I know it's frustrating it is when your vape has issues, but you have to maintain your composure. Constructive criticism posted in a respectful way is welcome in any thread so long as its not just rehashing things that have already been said. If you can't say what you want without being respectful and abiding by the rules please step back until you can.

    It has been so peaceful around here for a good while.
    It has pleased me so much, I thought I would share a few seconds of peaceful reflection here and affection for the INH06S
