    Is it even more difficult than the small Trinity to load?

    Are you guys having issues loading tanks? I just use a syringe.

    I do feel these small products require you to be a little slower.

    To be sure, the STIX is equally challenging to load as the small Trinity. I use a syringe as well, however the tolerance between the outer wall and chimney are smaller than the tip of my syringe. So the liquid has to be ready to run to the bottom of the tank or it overflows and .........well you know the rest. For the price, and the stealth factor the STIX is a good deal. I need something easier to fill, that holds more.

    I use a Steel 15ga LL Syringe, that way I can heat the
    tip when I'm done "Easily" filing these 1/2 gram pods
    in all of 30 seconds total.
    Heat syringe under hair dryer for 10 seconds , then just
    squirt in oil , 15Ga tip fits easy in space.

    Waiting for the Bigger (hopefuly glass) tanks.
    Really liking this for stealthy, lol.
    Had a good / bad experience with a new atty,
    Easily squirt in 1/2 gram of Organa lads GG #4
    Screw in & wit 10 mins, it flowed at room temp.
    No fire, dead atty? Yes. now good part.
    Turned pen upside down for 10 mins
    Put spare atty on pen, screwed in
    and worked 1st hit WOW! No mess,
    hardly any loss as it all flowed back to pod.

    Well after seeing this post i went and bought 2 stix, 1 for me and 1 for my boss
    I registered to the forum specially to review this vape pen and... well you will see.
    Its pretty easy to use, watched a video on youtube how to fill it up and stuff
    started using and its a really good vape, the taste is good and produces very nice clouds on the mid temp,
    But, there is a big but...
    For my boss on the 1st use the plastic piece broke inside, and we were like
    "Well... shit happens"
    Just a little while after the plastic piece broke for me too,
    2 vapes under 1 day 2 plastic pieces broke.

    the worst part is that i got plastic pieces stuck inside so 100$ dab worth is gone on 2 30$ vape pens,
    To my honest opinion it's not worth it.
    I know this comment looks like slander, its my 1st comment in the forum and i would suspect too,
    but i can assure you it is true and i am willing to send my purchase recipe to anyone!

    That seems to be a weak point, those cheap plastic threads
    on that plastic/acrylic way too small pod.
    I have 6 pens & tanks in use for friends, with spare tanks & pods from ebay $17 for 5 pack.
    NEVER had one crack on me or malfunction at all.
    The plastic is brittle & cheap, glass would be cool
    in 1 ml size.
    Getting Big Rips on pinnacle water tool on blue setting
    for full 10 seconds, pen fits in bottom with simple adapter.
    I find you have too kind of prime the atty with thick oil.
    You can just buy the pod & atty & use the evole plus pen

    Crazy stuff, the Pod cheap plastic thread just disintegrates.
    I just saw one that looks just like this from a bud that uses
    wax liquidizer and it worked fine for 2 days & then he woke
    up to a mess just like that picture, little pieces of plastic floating
    around inside atty.
    No wonder they are selling for 9.95 on Ebay.
    I wonder if the plastic is reacting to the terps
    and that's why I haven't had that problem.
    I do get stuff in the mouth piece if I lay it down.

    That is crazy. I was really hoping these would be good because of the design. I’ll be getting one soon, so I’ll report back.

    What do you think is causing the plastic threads to disintergrate
    in the atty? Heat, plastic is thin , cheaply made & should be glass
    for our safety, don't you think?

    Is it Terps & are we vaping melted plastic?
    PLEASE Respond, we need you!

    I can’t get cheap stuff here. Everything at our dispensaries is expensive as hell. I’ll only use a drop the size of a grain of rice.

    I'm new here and only made this account so I could share my similar experience. I purchased one Stix with a 5pc extra atomizers with tanks. Of those 5....3 snapped off and broke in the thread area. I lost so much product and it frustrated me to the extreme. This has nothing to do with the terps dissolving the plastic. If you carry it in your pockets...which I always do....then they can easily break while sitting down. I could literally hear the snap when they broke. And all 3 occasions were by sitting. I'm still going on 2weeks with the other 3 tanks that work. And those are still vaping nice. A simple fix would be if they had a metal cap. Until then, im sticking to Ccell cartridges. Hope this helps.

    Yes, all Yocan wax pen (as well for the concurrence too) tend to break if you put it in your pocket without a hard sleeve/carry case to protect it. It helps to avoid to get dust in the mp too.

    Welcome!

    I received a STIX as a review unit, and I really like it! It’s easily concealed, and works well. It charges up quickly too. It’s pretty easy to fill, at least for me. The one thing I don’t like is that the pod is made of plastic. I wish it were made of glass. :(
