Salutations SameOldTim, This is at least what i'd reply myself when that comes to its basic founding principles: As i recall using only *1* single battery felt like a joke to me, kind of early (...) - and perhaps also to other readers as well. Then the Loto Labs strategy was to push the cork even deeper by announcing inclusion of electrical contacts in their wireless design!! Which inspired me this next comment below... Under those given circumstances that's not even surprizing, hence my question about susceptor weight. Enjoying exhales under a few diagonal sunrays ain't necessarily a bad thing, i do exactly that everytime there's an opportunity because i need to be more careful than average, plus it feels so comforting somehow! Sometimes eye-contact ain't what's best in visual feedback, especially if dancing clouds became a large part of one's favourite ritual. Hard to explain without sharing the fun. Could be an ex-smoker thing, go figure. The reason i suggested a Hybrid Core as in my VG, previously, is because it would allow to compensate for the weak aspects somewhat (which i believe to have been avoided by this particular manufacturer right from the start). But adversity still may prove creative if that eventually helps to deal with such frugal energy budget so that vaporizers can compete e-Cigs someday. This product was conceived starting with a focussed intention to seduce visually, while the primary goal with any such portable project should be to determine what's a realistic/suitable bowl size 1st - then the heat source can be determined accordingly. Instead it's like a shell was created as a function of available battery sizes, then the bowl came sort of late in that process. E. G. fulfilling the needs of a startup company came long before the needs of their customers IMO. Yet it's here now - at least for a few owners. I'd have expected a beefier IH driver but i suspect it's possible to get the most of it by completing the work where Loto Labs left it nearly unfinished: re-design this primitive bowl into one exploiting a proper combination of all heat types exactly! Good day, have fun!!
