    I recently picked up a Orb 4 kit, but haven't used it much.
    Anyone have a favorite atomizer?
    Or, which atomizer is best for what purpose?

    My fav is the Ti nail. It's for low temp, flavourful vaping. All the double coil atomizers it comes with are more for ripping and bigger hits. The coils with quartz wicks are supposed to taste the best, the black ceramic is for your runnier concentrates, and the white ceramic is in between.

    I guess I'm just going to be ignored and source vapes basically publicly gave an empty promise. I am regretting I put faith in them and pre ordered a product

    This is clearly a lie. I never recieved any such thing and even don't get any response at all from source vapes

    Send us an email, we'll be upgrading all SOURCE orb 4 customers with a new Attachment with a much stronger magnet. You'll be getting a new SOURCE orb 4 attachment, so you'll also have 4 free atomizers. :)

    We'll be offering new Glass bubblers and provide a free upgrade for all current users. We've also upgraded our Glass globe to handle heat much better.

    We'll be emailing customers once these are available. :)

    This is not a lie, we just haven't released the new glass bubblers yet. We'll be emailing all customers once we do.

    Got my replacement Orb 4 that Source is sending out to everyone with the stronger magnets. Using it for two days, it seems to be a better balance of magnet strength and ease of use. It can still come off unintentionally in a pocket or bag, but much less so than the previous version, and it's still very easy to use. Any stronger and it would likely impede reloading the atomizer.

    Good stuff.

    Just got the email for the replacement bubbler. Pretty cheap to upgrade as well, probably going to go with that recycler. Looks pretty sweet! Haven't used my source enails in a bit, will definitely revisit with the new bubbler.

    Hi guys,

    We wanted to let you guys know about a few new products and upgrades we've released.

    2 New Coil-less Atomizers: Quartz Plus & SOURCE terra 2

    We've released our 2 newest coil-less atomizers, the new Quartz Plus and SOURCE terra 2 atomizers.

    [​IMG]

    Quartz Plus atomizers feature a flat All-Ceramic Plate at the bottom as the heating element, enclosed in a quartz housing, to ensure your materials slide down the walls to the bottom and are not wasted.

    These are compatible with:


    • SOURCE orb 4
    • SOURCE orb XL
    • SOURCE nail

    Quartz Plus are included in SOURCE orb 4 Premium Kits and SOURCE orb 4 Signature Kits.

    [​IMG]

    Building on the groundbreaking SOURCE terra, our first coil-less atomizer that featured a ceramic disc heating element. In its second generation, and our 5th coil-less atomizer, it now features no disc. Your materials are dissolved in an All-Ceramic cup.

    The most important feature change on the SOURCE terra 2, and what distinguishes it from other coil-less atomizers, is that heat is distributed throughout the entire cup. This means materials stuck onto the sides of the cup will vaporize. This also means, there is no material wasted or leaked.

    SOURCE terra 2 atomizers are available exclusively in SOURCE orb 4 Signature Kits, since they require 30w+ of power.

    Here's a close up of the side of SOURCE terra 2, where you can see how the sides are powered.

    [​IMG]

    All original owners of SOURCE orb 4 kits will get the respective atomizers shipped for free.

    New SOURCE 10cig Quartz

    We've also released our 5th version of our incredibly successful $10 Vape Pen, SOURCE 10cig, which now features a Quartz Single Coil atomizer.

    For $9.95 you get 1 Quartz and 1 Ceramic atomizer.

    New SOURCE orb 4 Magnet

    In case you didn't receive the email last week, we've made the Magnetic Lock on our SOURCE orb 4 2x as strong, making easier to take on the go.

    New SOURCE nail Glass

    And last but not least, we've upgraded the glass in our SOURCE nail Temp Control Kit and our SOURCE nail Attachment with our new Split Glass attachment, as well as released 3 Premium Glass options.

    All original owners will be automatically upgraded.

    We hope you enjoy these new upgrades and products, and if you have any feedback, please always email us to support@SOURCEvapes.com, we value your feedback immensely.

    Definitely wanna try those new atty's out. Especially the new terra. Been wanting to see a ceramic heating chamber that heated the sides for some time now. Exciting stuff!

    I'm also curious about the new Source mod. It seems like the software is designed for concentrate use as opposed to nic ejuice like most mods as it goes to 700F (most mods max out at 600) and the initial resistance detection is new to me as well. Curious if it will perform better than a mid-range TC mod for the enail & new atomizers. Anyone had a chance to test this out yet?

    These guys discontinued the battery for the Orb 3 and gave me a gift card that wasn't enough to replace with their own product. It's laughable at best to claim a lifetime warranty when you can't support a part for 12 months. I really like this companies innovative products, but I am not a fan at all of advertising simulative warranty programs which almost always results in you (the customer) not being able to prove manufacturer defect vs wear & tear. Thus the lifetime warranty is very much subjective, debatable, and based solely on the mercy of your Source support representative.

    I would still buy this companies products, but I don't think they handled my support ticket well, thus I am less loyal to this brand than when I was preaching them to everybody as a total surefire with the lifetime warranty.

    I've had two orb3 batts warranties with no issue, sorry to hear they have run out.

    You can always try another brand and post up your comparative findings.

    For sure, I'm using another (larger capacity) battery. Sounds like you had better luck with the warranty dept. You win some you lose some.

    I bought two of their bubblers to use with my pens, and the airflow and base seal of the ones I bought off fasttech were better sadly.

    Still excited to see more low temp demos regarding their TC mod / nail, as that is one I haven't tried yet.

    Just ordered a Source Orb 4 aomizer for using on my Cuboid Mini. Anxious to see how it is. I have a ton of stuff to compare it to.

    I would love to hear your opinion. I have been using the orb 3 and terras for a while now with great success. I got the coupon offer in email for $25 off $60 and really want to move up to the orb 4 so i can get use the new terra and quartz buckets. Does the cuboid have TC? Would that work with the ceramic or quartz or just the TI? I really just want the cleanest possible experience with my concentrates.

    I was thinking of doing the same since Orb 4 atomizers don't work with Orb 3, and basically nothing from my Orb 3 kit works anymore. Are you using terra on 4.4v? I really want to try terra at 8v so I don't have to preheat the atomizer; particularly the new one with the heated sides. Should be a revelation from all the material that accumulates to the side. I've also had the best luck with terra. All the coil atomizers get strange residual buildup/gunk that I have never gotten with terras.

    I use a simple vw battery with the orb 3 and terra on 11-12 watts setting. Have used one terra atty for months with no issues. I dont really want to buy orb 4 because i still have 4 unused terras but i really want the safest possible atty.

    Do you have your ticket number? All batteries have a Lifetime Warranty and are replaced, including SOURCE orb 3 which we replace.

    Re: Orb4

    The Source Terra 2 with heated ceramic bottom and sides is legit.
    Big, thick, smooth clouds @ 30W.
    3 big hits of a small dab.

    I haven't tried the new Quartz atomizer yet.

    Hopefully they have a fair bit of longevity.

    :D

    I see you are taking pre-orders on your site for the Flosstradamus SOURCE orb XL - Triple Coil & Coil-less Vape Pen...when is this expected to start shipping? I am considering jumping aboard this one.

    Also, can you identify/explain the differences between the 30W Mod that comes with the Source orb XL kit I mention and the 40W Mod that comes with the Portable eNail & Vape Pen - Temp Control eRig?

    The 40w has Temperature Control, rather Voltage control.

    What are you looking for with the Floss SOURCE orb XL? What's your main reason for purchase, so we can find the perfect model for you.

    @SOURCEvapes

    I picked up a Source Orb4 Sig kit awhile back and am quite impressed.
    It provides dab-like clouds and effects; first "pen" that I have run across that actually does the job.

    Initially it was running in W mode.
    Then after switching to a different atomizer (I don't recall which one) it started giving me a temperature setting instead.
    Is this determined by the atomizer?
    Or did I inadvertently change the setting w/o knowing it?
    If it's possible to choose which mode it's in regardless of atomizer, I would like to know how to make that happen.

    ... And the new fully heated ceramic cup atomizer is awesome!
    Any idea when they will be available to purchase by themselves?

    Thanks!

    You can easily switch between Variable Wattage mode and Temperature Control mode by pressing the button sequentially 3 times to pull up the main menu. Then, press the button to select "Atomizer," then choose between "Normal" (VW mode) and "Ni200" (TC mode).

    You can find all of our battery instructions here, as well as info our atomizers here.

    If you're talking about the new SOURCE terra 2, you can already purchase in a 3-Pack here.

    We're really glad you like it, if you have any questions or feedback, please let us know!

    Thank you very much!
    Another barrage newbie questions:

    Is there any real difference between the two, or are they two different scales to quantify the same thing?
    Temperature is easier to conceptualize.

    Is there an advantage to using VW mode vs. TC mode?
    Are there different situations (concentrate viscosity/various atomizers) that work better in one mode versus the other?
