Yup, I've had mine for over ten years--so long I don't remember exactly when I got it. I've replaced the wand and mouthpiece each once (glass breaks), but the unit is still going strong. That ceramic heating element is amazing. I don't know how many times over the years I've forgotten to turn it off, leaving it glowing for hours. I'm on an ongoing search for a reliable portable with good vape production, but the Silver Surfer has never left me wondering if I should shop around for another desktop.
