What does everyone think solo or ascent
both make me happy.
The Solo is time tested, cheaper and is convection.
The Ascent has great taste but is new (unproven) and is mostly conduction.
Ok sorry for being such a newbe but what the difference between convection and conduction
I vote solo
+1 on the Solo.
This picture does a good job at illustrating the three different forms of heat transfer.
Convection in vaporizers involves heat carried through air which is then passed through the material.
Conduction in vaporizers involves heat transfer from a solid heat source to another solid medium which is cooler in temperature.
Yup. Convection occurs when your bud gets vapes by sucking the hot air through your bud. Conduction occurs when your bud is heated by whatever is in contact with it.
Ok so I have a og dv and it is conduction and the solo is convection correct
they all have some of each going on, but yes...the solo is mostly convection and the dv is mostly conduction
Well I just want to buy myself something new for my birthday and I think 8 can get the solo and the nice case for less then I can get the ascent . I have heard that it solo is a hog is that true
Not true, if you're referring to herb efficiency. I find the Solo to be ultra- efficient!
I'd say the "hog" factor is all relative.it all depends on what you were using before by comparison. if you were a smoker, then I think you will find any vape at all is not a hog
for example. if you use a solo and then try out the PAX, I thought the PAX was a hog. it took 2.5x more greens and didn't get me 2.5x higher imo.
but the solo is a hog compared to a log vape like a purple days.
one to two bowls on the solo and I am good to go.
granted, If i was at home I'd use a harder hitting vape and get there even faster. but for portable needs the solo is my fave.
I don't actually own either but had been asking myself this question till I decided to order the Solo. My reason is because as said above its unproven and will likely have future models to come, whereas the solo seems to be pretty solid all round, has been through quite a few models now and can be had for nearly half the price. Now I am just waiting for mine to arrive
Plus one for Solo!
I love me some Solo, and find it be very efficient. When I use it as a primary vape instead of one of my desktop units, I usually notice reduced consumption.
Where/how are you going to use it? The Ascent is a pocket vape. The Solo really isn't. Do you want the big home style hits or do you want stealth and convenience? They're really not the same category of portable.
Well I want something small not really worried about portability that will produce the best vapor and will be easy to use
I have an og dv for portability

The Solo will probably produce the most satisfying hits. I wouldn't use the term "best vapor" since that implies a better quality of vapor when really the difference is about density and volume. The Solo is also done with its growing pains since it's been out for a long time and all the wrinkles are ironed out- cheaper too.
Right max I can get a solo and the carrying case for about 180 right now
So you're sold on the Solo?
Well I think I have got alot of great info from everyone amd I think I going to get it. Any know a good place to order
If you are in canada, or anywhere really planetvape.ca is who id use. use hte promo code solo160 or solo179 to get a deal
they also make the PVHES stems you will undoubtedly want also. I prefer the standard straight personally. it's an extra 25 but absolutely worth it.
get yourself the solo179 deal and a stem if I can suggest anything
their out of stock?
they're out of stock are they? bummer. sorry dude. email em they respond fast and might have more very soon. could be worth the wait
im looking at puffitup and they got just as good of a deal going right now. Better actually. May even price match ebay
