Ok so today I discovered I can use the elev8r similarly to a sticky bricks, although I warm up the heater a little bit. When I get home tonight I'll attempt a bowl using no warm up and direct intake. This is a very very interesting vape. I was able to crush a half gram bowl by warming it up to low vape temp with my triple hey lighter. I take a draw and turn off the lighter. Scott half way through the draw I pointed the little lighter towards the air intake at the top of the heater. I got the richest and thickest vapor I've had to date. Amazing. I love manual Vapes lost because they reward the incentive user.
