It looks interesting but...
“The Prrl contains everything you need with it’s integrated battery (7 to 15 full sessions), custom designed and fitted hardwood pipe, and elegant grooming tool.
What does that mean??
I'm guessing either an herb grinder...or a hair brush? LOL
Perhaps it is a way to add some sweet flavor to the herb. (Maybe a nice watermelon mint.) You know, for the children.
Looking at the pictures of the other products on the Prrl website, I'm guessing that "Grooming Tool = Dab/stir tool". It is curious that an English speaking website would call a stir tool a "grooming tool".
Based on the fact that the website is still being built; see https://theprrl.com/blog/ and a domain registration date of June 2018, I wonder if Prrl has actually produced/sold any product.
Tough crowd here
Found the grooming tool in this picture of their first gen product, the Ember
Clever, if you enjoy two handed vaping. Like the Lotus or OG pipe smoking. Looks like he customized mod firmware for cruise -- Edit, no, it's on demand. Watched video in the Ember thread.
The new Prrl is the same two handed concept, but, wow!
Thinking out of the box (mod)
Ah interesting design, looks like it can work on any pipe bowl really, and may be tricky to get the hang of without combustion unless it has some nice temp control regulation somehow?
I think it is really cool looking too. My VAS perked up a bit.
But the thought of having to figure out that technique.... I can imagine you have to keep pretty still while heating to keep an even burn. I am thinking it needs far more patience and focus (and possibly coordination?) than I am equipped to handle.
Preorder deposit paid
I'm a sucker for innovative High design concepts
This is what the Vaporgenie might to be, the Prrl brings a Vaporgenie style for sure! Interesting but the heating tek doesn't look innovative and a somewhat crude coil based tek, no complains here but the ufo design lead me to think there was a whole new heating tek hidden in this spherical thing.
Where I'm surprised it's the battery capacity which claims a doizen of sessions in a such tiny design... although I tested a while ago the Evolve-D by Yocan which was a cheap coil based herb atty and it was working surprisingly well (not used like designed for) and the battery offered a lot of hits despite its tiny size.... but "sessions" are not easy to quantify in a "on-demand" vape.
Is there any sort of temperature control or is it unregulated (Ember seems regulated if I judge by the pics)?
Troy got one.
That’s the Ember, not the Prrl
Well, isn't that special...
Edit: I'm a sucker
I'd be doing a charge back with the CC company or opening a case with PayPal if you didn't receive a refund.
I'll cut them slack, idea guys can get distracted from the CS/biz side
I still like the idea
Here's a good rationalization: my prepayment was on an idea, not a product
Therefore, I got my money's worth
Yeah, that's the ticket! I feel better now
Yup, I am in the same boat. This is a really interesting idea (and one I have thought about before, so I really hope they can bring it to market. I would even consider investing in them, since I don’t think I have the resources to bring something like the prrl to market.
gave them money, then gave them slack, as you can read above
no good deed goes unpunished, or unappreciated, i suppose
no explanation, no apology, no refund, no communication
Sorry to hear that bro, not a good way to start a company.
Please send me a PM. I can't perform CS in the thread (sorry Mods, getting used to this) and I cannot PM you.
Thanks for the offer to help, @VGOODIEZ !
Contacted Prrl and received preorder refund today
My butt-hurt has subsided. Startup mixup
Any new updates on the prrl?
We're currently shipping the Ember... check it out at PrrlLabs.com. There's also an FC thread on the Ember where we'll try to be more active than we've been so far... We still hope to bring the Prrl to market next year, but need to generate enough revenue for the steeper manufacturing costs of the Prrl.
Hey, all. You might want to check out the recent review on the Ember from Cannabis Now! https://cannabisnow.com/meet-prrl-labs-ember-josh-winicki-interview/
