    Wanted to post in a thread that i have watched and loved for a long time but will no longer have a use for. My SSV was one of my favorite vaporizers I ever owned and it always will be. I had an e nano before that and I loved that too, I just needed a bigger pack for water pipe hits so I went Lsv, after a few close calls with rolls off the table and the thing falling because I'm horribly clumbsy I decided to let a friend buy it, he was begging to buy it from me cuz he liked it so much, so I sold it and got a SSV.

    It could deliver the same size hits through water, espcially with the DDave mod, and it was a tank, sitting on my table ready to go all day every day. I never kept mine on 24/7 because of my ocd, but knowing it was no problem if I did was always awesome. For over a year I was happy with my home plug in situation and that was mainly my SSV. Recent purchases of portables has given me a new out look on vapes and what they can do. My milaana honestly hits every bit as hard as an e nano, and almost the surfer, it can hold more than a DDave mod screen too or less, and easily milk a piece and it's portable.. And then I tried a friends EVO and I had to have one. After using the SSV I fell in love with convection and the EVO is the best convection vape I've tried, well sublimater and appollo are both CRAZY but i think there's convection + magic in those vapes lol.

    My silver surfer is now bagged up, in the corner feeling lonely.. And I feel a little bad not giving it any love, but the way I see it is that the SSV worked great for me, for as long as I expected, I mean it's still in perfect condtion.. I could have probably used it for the rest of my life lol. I mean that is one thing I will attest to and that's the durability of this thing. If you want to get into convection vapor for a fair price and do it with some style, the SSV is for you ;) it is truely a great vape that I believe has and will stand the test of time.


    Cheers FC,
    Stay vaped :peace::leaf:

    You guys are making me miss my SSV already!!!!
    Where are these $100 ssv's?
    Hopefully the LSV will do everything I wanted the SSV to?

    edit: Is the vapeusa sale up? they say in stock but i can't add to cart.

    You must select "options" (colors etc) before the system will allow you to put item in cart.

    Last time I checked they were back over $200. I must admit that I picked up a backup ssv myself at $108. Cheaper than wholesale.

    I have also been holding out on sharing this little gem.

    Here it is all milked up with my Marley SSV.

    IMO this takes the SSV to a new level! Smooth and tasty lung busters and no more whip for those who dislike them. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this add to your collection.

    Here are some of the other toys I use with the Marley.

    The recycler has become my most prized possession in the glass department. It was made my Steve and it's unbelievably beautiful. Even made the Rasta Switchball WPA like I asked. I feel very fortunate to have these pieces. I am going to throw up some more pics on the elev8 glass thread when I get some time. Try to revive that dead thread. It deserves it. The 7th floor Elev8 Glass team makes some real nice stuff!

    @Vitolo you motivate me!

    Today I will break out my SSV and medicate!

    This is a very effective unit!

    I tried a running a handful of searches, so I'm sorry if this has already been discussed somewhere that I haven't seen, but is anybody able to approximate the maximum wattage of the SSV? I'm curious about using either a car converter or a small generator while camping.

    Most generator's will work.
    A car inverter 100 will be more than enough.

    Have fun!

    I will paint my SSV PINK. (Color? Market Brain Washing)

    I might be wrong but one time with my old ssv i pulled the ceramic rod out and read the whole part number did some googling, and could not find the part (one time I found the PDF and i could have sworn it was by kyocera) but it appears to actually be a piece that is included in a 50 watt soldering iron kit.

    So @ataxian advice is good as with a 50 watt maximum power then a car inverter that can do 100 will be fine.

    I dont have a kill a watt or whatever to measure how much it uses and i sold my ssv anyway, miss it though

    I use a Bestek 200w 3 outlet and i have to crank both my Ssv and Enano when i use them. I think i killed my last one different brand way louder not worth mentioning by running both Eq and Enano, So i won't even attempt two desktops on it, But it's much more quiet then the other.


    The generators are very loud unless you get a good Honda one or like model, You can also go solar if the Honda generators are in budget. I haven't used any of the high end solar one's myself, So i really couldn't recommend any. I know goal zero makes some decently powered one's.

    I just tested my SSV with my kill-a-watt meter and the SSV uses about 31 watts +/- at maxed dial

    I think I remember people saying the part was a 25 or 30 watt when I asked this in the past

    When I go on a road trip I never use a portable.
    I use a plug in.

    SSV taste better than any portable! (imo)

    Loud music with heavy bass causes my SSV to sneakily rise in heat. I have found I can avoid the 'startle-puff of icky smoke' by moving the vape further away from the speaker where there's less vibration. I just can't turn the tunes down.

    So with my versa infinity down I'm back to using my first vape love, the ssv :tup:

    I was using the spherical setup when I left off so I started with that; but now I'm back to standard gg with the @DDave mod for super efficient one-hitters, and a second screen for harvesting rosin. Now I feel like I have the best of both worlds with a clean standard wand and a second screen just waiting for rosin.

    [​IMG]
    Old shot of spherical wand

    I have tons of wand hash but it's nasty; the rosin I'm getting with a second screen is dabbable :science:

    The @DDave mod can make your ssv good for efficient one-hitters also.

    I like your direct draw setup :tup:

    How'd that dbv heater cover work out?

    I like to max the heat on my SSV and then take a fast hard rip. It's like a huge bong rip except it feels and tastes 10X better than smoke. It's a delicious vapor bomb. Once you learn how to work the SSV it is fucking amazing what this vape can do. That's why the SSV is my favorite vape.
