    Mine never has so I'm in the mutha fuckin cleeaaaarrr!

    With a Zion on the way eventually it makes it difficult for me to justify. But who knows, time will tell. Either way, why the hell not, right???

    I've been thinking lately that I'll just keep my current Milaana (v2) and grab an exotic wood later on.

    Definitely the way to go.

    Initially I was going to sell it, but can't hurt to have a backup!

    These are good points to consider, indeed. I prefer to see it as a plugged-in Zion I think. :D

    Yeah I think both Zion and Milaana will have pass through and vvps capability thanks to @Alan at some point in the future as well, so there will many options in the RBT line up to suit any customer. I agree plugged in Zion seems perhaps most ideal of all, but many of us crazy folk here (as we see above) will want the whole line up too, even if a bit redundant for them :tup:

    False battery pack wall plug for Zion would be really nice.

    As a log owner I think many of those don't apply. None of my wood products-including the milaana or logs have deterioated and they heat up very quickly.
    Still my HI took a couple of years to order given the length of the waiting list. Besides the RBT features, this will make HI's much more available.
    Alan already has some nice stems that work with the Milaana or HI.

    Congratulations RBT. This is exciting news.

    This is basically my ideal vape. The power and manual control of the milaana, log shaped, without having to fuss around with batteries.

    Logs are great, but they aren't as instant or as versatile as the Milaana. Milaana is ready to inhale from as soon as I press the button. Log needs a few quick minutes. They heat up quickly enough, but it can't compare to instant.

    And the addition of a stable, adjustable voltage from the wall takes the milaana's biggest "flaw" away from it.

    I'm liking the choice to use driftwood. It's a cool look and stands out as unique among the variety of other log vapes out there.

    Zion with wall adapter fills a niche between desktop and portable that hasn't really been nailed yet. Some devices offer pass through charging but all the ones I've used discharge faster than they charge so it's not really comparable to unlimited power.

    Well I guess I am going to have a collection of logs now. Going to be buying an underdog (hopefully a mini and micro as well), on the heat island list, was hoping to get Ed's woodscent, an enano is always an option, the HGL for good measure, and now I will have to buy this as well. $99 is a steal and a half. This is a great team up. Love it!

    What a year this is shaping up to be. If only I had unlimited funds. If only. Man my wife's gonna be pissed. She might have a little trouble comprehending my VAS addiction. She already has asked that 1 question all true vaporists dread. When will enough be enough. And I simply said "Hey I never question your # of shoes". I mean it's all relative right. Wouldn't 1 pair of tennis shoes be enough or just one black pair of heels be enough. Not every color and style they make.
    Ya were not quite seeing eye to eye on this one.

    Anyway this is fucking sweet as hell and it's at the very top of my wish list. Very top.

    As a shoe person myself, you might help her understand what a great deal this is. A log-never mind a high quality log- for $100 is an amazing price. Comparable to her finding her favorite shoes for <$15 or$10.

    On the other hand I am no longer working. The zion, which I've paid for, and Ed's log were supposed to be my only purchases for 2017. It's day 4 and I'm already sold on this.

    Wow, it's nice to see folks are digging this. I personally am really most excited to have the opportunity to work with Alan. Today I packed up the Mi-Log (not the long term name btw :) along with three sets of heater glass assemblies, heaters, mica, buttons and hardware. I also included some straight tubes and loose heater glass screens as Alan has a really cool plan for a... well I really can't tell you that ;)

    So, with that and this video I leave this project in the capable hands of Alan and the brilliant minds of FC as I am on a mission to get a train back on the tracks

    Are you using those VG drops you showed in an old video or are the clouds really that big from this thing? Looks like you did a 1g dab! This log looks fucking sweet :sherlock:

    Full disclosure that is VG enhanced vapor... straight up flower ain't takin' that kinda power lol. Just horsing around with the high power. With the power supply and open flow path you can pretty much go where ever you want. @Alan is putting a team together who will really dial this thing in so stay tuned.....

    I agree with @ZC that this is pretty much the ideal device for my preferences.

    If the planned launch date stays Dec17, this will be my college graduation gift to myself :D

    Can't wait to see how this evolves over the next few months

    You could have already had me on a list. I had this idea in MAY!

    Like... what the fuck.

    My only gripe with my Milaana is the batteries since I only use it at home sitting at my desk gaming or on the couch watching tv. THIS is what I need.

    Such a blast to brainstorm with Alan. I won't leak to much of his master plan but imagine a compact HI Log in the palm of your hand with a slender wire leading to a single or double 18650 power pack in your jacket pocket... great for a hike. Imagine a HI power supply leading to a driftwood coffee table vape with Zion electronics controlling multiple heaters for the ultimate party vape. Come in from a walk and drop the battery out of your Mi and through in the HI power supply battery for home use.

    The power supply, DC/DC, cord set and connectors will be the basis for a good number of possible products.

    I am excited to see @Alan work with folks like @ZC and @KeroZen and anyone that has input to this endevor.

    I think the coordset and connectors is worth some attention. The idea is to leverage existing industry standard products that have a modern new age feel.... braided cable and gold plated connectors sounds dope who can afford it? Is an old school two wire acceptable? What is reliable, universal, stylish cord and connector set that won't break the bank? Would flat wire be more pliable and manageable? Let's face it, everyone hates cords, especially non-standard ones.

    So, speak up all you Log lovers... FC is always chock full of sound professional feedback.

    I'd prefer braided cords as I feel like it makes the wiring more resilient. I'm impartial to the plating of the connector as long as it isn't fragile. I had a braided (not coiled though) gold-plated connector cable for my mech keyboard, and it completely broke INSIDE the connector as I lifted my keyboard to clean underneath it...

    2 wires is fine, especially if they are thin. If the 2 wires wrapped together are as thick or thicker than some of the large cords that some log vapes use (I believe AC? I have like a 5% chance of being correct so sorry) then it defeats the purpose imo. Or at least significantly reduces the portability and makes tabletop usage a bit more of a chore - especially with a smaller/lighter vape.

    I guess I still haven't fully wrapped my head around how awesome this portable power supply will be.

    I'm not sure if the form is going to stay the same but I think it be better if it was blockier like the Milaana, that way you can set it down on its side without worrying about it rolling off a table/desk.

    I'm sure it's going to change but that cord shown definitely needs to be a bit beefier.

    Most of the HI logs have some way to stay upright. I imagine that there will be something that will develop given the 2 talents involved. I am so excited that these 2 are working together to come up with an affordable vape. It will be amazing.
