    Couple of De Verdamper type knockoffs in Argintina
    These are Argentine auction listings, so you can use Google Translate to read in English

    I am not sure how long this link will work so I will list the auction site second if they re-list the item.

    http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ar...r-5-encastres-con-piezas-hechas-en-pyrex--_JM

    Auction site http://www.mercadolibre.com.ar/ search "Vaporizador" which is Spanish for vaporizer, you do have to sift through to find them because they also refer to diffusers and such as vaporizers.

    Diamond Vapor is one that I have not heard anything about, I looked over the website and it seems to be a combination of wood like a box vape, heater angle of a Silver Surfer, and a double glass heat tube like a VHW wand. Obviously not the most advanced vaporizer out but the price is better than the Silver Surfer and a decent Box Vape, with the double glass heat tube I am surprised I can't find a single product mention.

    I didn't find a thread about it, so i'll make one.

    http://www.top-vapor.com/p2.asp for more infos.

    I just buy that little standard box a week ago, for 80$CAD. At first, I didn't liked it.. I was used with a bong, and really strong hits. I made several tests to get the best of it, and i read about those boxs, i know they're not the best.

    But, I finally found something interesting. I can't get rid of it now, no more smoking for me. Vapor for the win. I fixed the mouthpiece to my bong perfectly without lost air, and it works real better than the mouthpiece itself. Water and ice is cooling the vapor, so it gives some nice and strong hits.

    The other thing was the heating element, when putting grass in the bowl, it must stay in sort that it all vaporize.. when you plug the bowl, the angle make sorts that your stuff will not vaporize equally. So I turn the vaporizer, and it gives some gooood results.

    Vapor is the best. Bong is staying clean, saving lungs, more hits for less stuffs. I should start vaporizing a long time ago.

    Thank's to all for all the help i found here!

    I'm told that water retains some of the active chemicals of grass when using a bong, usually they take strong hits and don't notice but with vapor idk, it might make it weak sauce, but then again it's not like I have a biomedical engineering degree or anything, "if it works, it don't need fixing"

    I read many studies on the subject, after being told a lot about it.. !

    I did several tests, with and w/out bongs. My results is that water doesn't affect the high. The only thing I can notice, with a bong you'll take bigger hits, so without a bong, you'll get more hits. And IMO, vapor should be consumed with a bong, better for the throat, and hits taste real better.

    I've been using my vape since over a month, and still happy with it. You don't need the highest vape on the market, cheap one will work real fine too, it's the same vaping process. Avoid the glass dome, but for box, they do the job!

    My friend just came over with her Nulite vaporizer. Has anyone had any experiance with one of these ? It looks like a Iolite but its battery operated. I thought great it looks like a cell phone we can vape out on the beach !! She turned it on and i immediatly smelled burning plastic so I opted out of her new vaporizer. We re-read the instructions because I thought perhaps we were supposed to heat it up for a while to burn it in or something, sadly there is was nothing in the instructions about this. So if anyone has information or use of this Nulite we would apprieate it. I think she just wasted $150.though.. back to the trusted vaporbrothers!!

    Yeah, from the info provided, I think Stroh is right. It's probably a Skyda type Iolite knockoff.

    I just got the Nulite a few days ago in a store in Denver, and it works great so far i havent had any plastic burn on me(just flowers:lol:.)
    Works good in the montains bc i cant use iolite in boulder bc of butane not lighting.

    Easy on and off too.

    Bought a Nulite Vaporizer, used it quite a bit. Loved it and had no smoke emit from it before use. Read the posts and saw that someone saw smoke so I turned it on and let it heat up before I used it and didn't see any smoke.

    Great Vaporizer period!!!!

    not sure if many of these have been mentioned, but i stumbled upon an old vape article ( http://hightimes.com/microsites/vaporizer/information.inc.php ) which listed these vaporizers with their pictures (i have not heard of many of these ones that i included below...there are a few extra ones on the article that i didnt list):

    LOL.

    Man, you like to dig up some old threads. This one from three years ago you did yesterday: http://www.fuckcombustion.com/viewtopic.php?id=44

    and now today, this one from one year ago.

    Oil well..........that last pic is a direct ripoff from a Vapir ONE.
    [​IMG]

    Fuck, if one is going to rip off a vape, at least rip off a good one. lol
    And to add insult to injury, check out the following quote "The Voodoo Vaporizer is the new kid on the block, a fine vaporizer that seeks to challenge the Volcanos position as the best vaporizer that money can buy."
    http://www.bestvaporizersonline.com/voodoo-vaporizer/

    And that erbo was recently talked about here and it's not even a vape: http://www.fuckcombustion.com/viewtopic.php?id=6192

    This can be an interesting thread though. ;)

    I guess you could use something like the heating wand or something to go along with the Erbo? I would think the fan would be a real nice bonus.

    ya man...well i just like to browse around FC & contribute whatever i feel like.

    but i dont get it (cuz im new to websites that are set up like this - "forums"...this is my first membership at one): so are old threads not to be discussed or something?

    i really dont have much to say about whats going on currently...i personally dont really have anything else to say about the MFLB (until the time comes when i do...).

    but whats the time limit to talk about stuff?

    im kind of new to FC, so everythings new to me...i figure that people will add/reply whenever they have something to say about it. but most people just reply to me like "ya that was old"...im like..."ok whats the point then?"...

    just like that post that you pasted of mine, im trying to make some valid points, but people are like "its too old to talk about"...then i figure they dont have to talk about it & when someone does have something to say on it, they will...i know how old stuff is cuz the date & time is always right there!

    i cant believe that all that work & time to explain myself & nobody appreciated it...actually they hated on me for it.

    definitely wasnt feeling too good about that & wasnt expecting that kind of response...but whatever, though...

    i guess ill probably get kicked off for commenting on old topics, but like i said, its new to me & i dont really know the "protocol" or "etiquette" for these websites yet...

    i posted on this one because whenever i hear the name of a new vape, i wanna see how it looks like...so i put these pics up so people could check them out. but yes, that was me on the "dbv + ssv + volcano" topic.

    No biggie, akwardsauce. It just stands out because there are very few old posts like these that get reanimated like this. Kind of akin to grave digging. ;)

    What you may want to do in the future is that if you see a really old thread that peaks your interest and you feel that others would either benefit from it or would be interested in it, you may just want to start a new thread of your own and maybe reference the old one. Just a thought.

    haha...ya thanks for the advice!

    i think in that situation, i would have been seen as really crazy...putting that long-ass explanation in a whole brand new thread...

    anyways, if that was grave-digging, im glad i got to put down what i did. if i was the original post author, i would have never even put that mini-review out there in the first place & would have considered myself lucky that nobody did analyze it like i did at the time...their analysis & conclusions were somewhat crazy. at least i feel like i put some fair, unbiased data on there so any future users who ever does go read it wont get misinformed or the wrong idea...but now its really buried in the secret stacks...

    anyways, has anyone seen these?

    Not a ripoff exactly. The Vapir company made the Voodoo and Mystifire for Pyro Products. Just a cosmetic and name change on the Vapir One and Vapormatic-identical units otherwise. Also interesting is that the more expensive Vapormatic/Mystifire is pretty much identical to the Vapir One/Voodoo internally. They just put a bigger housing on it.

    I remember 'The Vape' very well. The guy had a nice product but insufficient exposure, and I don't think people liked his 'gummy bear' type housing.

    300 bucks is alot for a Vapolution you can mount in your audio rack. Still, anything rack mountable is instantly sexier..

    I'd like to see more pictures of "The Vape," looks interested and bizarre and if Max thinks it had merit then I'm curious.

    Edit: electric temperature control does set it apart from the Vapolution.
