    Rastabuddhatao was commissioned by Heat Island to produce one Mi-Log vaporizer handset. The unit is a literal log vape made from Adirondack river driftwood. It contains the standard Milaana heater, glass and button. Rastabuddhatao has entered into agreement with HI to provide Milaana heater glass, screens, heater, mica and button to be used in Heat Island's On-Demand log vapes. In exchange, HI will develop the AC/DC brick, DC Boost/Buck electronics, LCD display and cord sets in the first half of 2017. RBT will then have access to the power supply solution(s) developed by HI in the second half of 2017 for possible commercialization of Mi-Logs. It is an honor and a privilege to work with such and accomplished vapor maker.

    So it's the Mi-Log but with a VVPS would it not become a Zion-log ? :science:

    Hey @Cl4ud3 :)
    No, not while it's got a Milaana heater at it's core.

    The Zion & Milaana have different heater configurations.

    Man, this whole thing is some next level sick puppy shit! :rockon: Toooooo excited for what's to come!

    What a way to end/start the year :tup:

    Wishing everyone peace, love & prosperity in 2017.

    I've officially been diagnosed with my first case of VAS of 2017.
    Awesome!
    Congrats to the innovative peeps behind this. Hopefully this year will bring more acceptance, and consumers to the market, and all will benefit!
    Happy, happy, happy 2017!

    Yeah! It's awful, too many great vapes from small independent makers coming in 2017. Forget about curing your VAS this year, it will be simply impossible! :razz:

    Not sure about it yet... It saves energy, yes, but it makes the whole log idea less practical. And less on-demand. Can't see the point.

    I'm assuming it heats up instantly thus while needing to be plugged in to operate, it won't need any heater saturation time. Would you rather it not have the button and just be a standard log with a RBT heater? Cause I think that could be cool too.

    Isn't that the whole point of logs? Picking it up, mating it with the stem/load and hitting it? The button adds one more step and in some cases makes a one-hand job a two-hand one... It can't be more instant than always-on, right?

    So according to @Alan from our email conversation, he sees these benefits for a Mi-Log when compared to a traditional log:

    "The Mi-Log could be a game changer for those who like bigger bowls than you get with a log style vaporizer. The Milaana hits harder than any log vaporizer I have ever tried plus it has the larger bowl size. The other thing I'm going to like about the Mi-Log is that the stem / roasting tube will not be hot enough to burn you when removed from the unit. The stem is always hot enough to burn when removed from a log style vaporizer. The Mi-Log should also stay cool to the touch, unlike log style vaporizers. If you had a battery pack, the Mi-Log would last a long time as a portable and give consistent hits. No changing batteries and no loss of power"

    "That would be fine for you to post my quote about the benefits of a Mi-Log over traditional logs. Sums it up well. I'm sure others will soon see the benefits. It also costs less to operate since it isn't using power the whole time between uses. Will need to post some photos of voltage controller updates in the Mi-Log thread"

    So yeah having an instant on demand desktop that does not need to be "always on" is pretty huge actually, and more ideal for me personally

    From what I understood as a potential first-time log vape buyer, 2months ago, was that the main detraction from log vapes were:

    *the initial start up time (assuming you're starting from the unit being completely off - those worried about the wait time from button press to vapor production should at least try a Milaana before doubting)

    *possible heat fatigue

    *deterioration of the wood over time

    this solves all of those. and in either case, this doesn't seem like it's supposed to be a "traditional" log.

    While the brief clip RBT posted doesn't show the total time the button was pressed for, assuming this is "only" as powerful as Milaana - it wouldn't require long (ie probably within a second or two), especially since there is no need to account for battery loss etc.
