Great hint dude! Now the airflow is absolutely better. They attach the adhesive on the wrong side.
I removed the adhesive from both of my "convector" units, and I'm not perceiving a change in airflow from either. Maybe I'll notice it when I actually vape some material, but I have to pick up my grandson from school in a bit, so no vaping for now. Either way though, there's no harm done, as no damage can occur from trying it.
Is this vape identical to swiftpro / cfv besides the temperature control? It looks so similar?
Not even close to the same thing. I own it and a swift pro.
I thought the same thing until I vaped some herbs. I think it's made a great improvement.
Yep, tried it last night, and I have to agree. I spoke too soon!
Thanks, @Vape Dr.
Found this sweet tear down of a unit.
Some interesting parts inside...
Have not used mine in months even though it tastes and hits pretty good!
Just saying, that the bottom bit is a crucial part of design, it is meant to restrict airflow (those tiny holes drilled in circles), so the pressure sensor can work properly... For example: if you block it with your finger, then suck on it, from the vacuum the sensor will turn on immeadiately, and regulate heat. Therefore, if you take off that plastic layer -> increase airflow, the sensor will not work properly (you can see it not flashing during inhale).
@Gibarian I did this months ago and it functions much better.
You do not keep the bottom plate off.
You take it off to remove the glue to allow the "proper" air flow and put it back on.
This looks to me like something they overlooked during assembly.
You are correct, the unit will not function properly if the bottom plate is left off. Once the glue is removed on the "proper side" the air flows much better but the bottom piece must be put back on.
I did this with 3 Fenixs' and 2 EDIT convectors myself.
This is not only a worthwhile mod for air flow, but necessary IMO.
You don't want glue in the intake air path.
@Vape Dr. GOT IT NOW! What an eye! You absolutely right, this is something I've never noticed Thanks for that, yep, it is a factory oversight, excellent mod recommendation!
I'm interested in doing that, should buy a 75€ fenix for it. My first one I gave away and my 2nd one got snatched by the cops 3 days after buying it..
Don't know the price of things in Germany, but the Vivant Alternate (separate thread) is only $129 retail and getting pretty good reviews.
110$ with puffitup code
not available around here..
If you look into the Vivant Alternate as I suggested a few posts ago you could pay full retail of $129 and $30 postage for a mostly convection vape with user swappable batteries.
Check with FC sponsor Puffitup and ask how much money it would cost.
@uhranium the vivant alternate can also be found on dhgate for $60. It doesn't come with batteries... But assuming you have 18650s then you'd be all set.
