    Still digging this device. Loving it on the RXG3D much more than the RXG3 I was using before. I have a dual battery charger I really dig and that third battery was always ruining my charging rotation. The smaller form factor fits the mod and hand lovely, very satisfied so far.

    Appreciate it if a few of you who have P80s could make sure the mod is off, then remove & reinsert your battery & lmk if the mod turns itself on automatically. *Be sure when you reinsert the battery that you are not pressing on the fire bar. Thanks!

    FYI, I would be shocked if this was not mentioned before, but this is important:

    On or off, these mods take power from the batteries and, if you don't pay attention you could easily kill some batteries.

    If using a mod or other 18650 vape devices, if you are not using that vape/mod on a regular basis remove the batteries. This is really a case of "use it or lose it".

    Does anyone know what the differences are between the Splinter z V1 and Splinter Z V2?

    I have ordered two but only one has arrived, however apart from this inconvenience I can already write the first impressions.
    The steam is cooler than the XL8R and steam production seems to me to be bigger too.
    However the XL8R seems to me more "solid", less fragile and aesthetically I like it better!

    Hmm didn't think about that, I guess I should take the 3 batteries out of my RX250 as it continues to sit unused now that I have P80 for V2 and Z still on G3D for regular use...

    ZV2 is blackwood with smoked glass, that is the only difference I believe

    Doesn't the V1 have mica & when no more mica, then, like the Splinter, it will then be called V1+? This whole version/naming thing is exasperating. I'm sick of hearing about it. I hope this crap doesn't go on with The Sprout.

    Yeah but that's not ZV1 which was already ceramic not mica, but had bubinga and clear glass. ZV2 is just blackwood and smoked glass

    I would like to ask two questions about cleaning.
    How do you clean the inside of the Splinter and the base where the mouthpiece rests?
    How often do you clean your glass mouthpiece?

    I run round the corners with the provided stick after every bowl
    apply wax to the wood and soak the top hat gauze once a fortnight
    and give the stems a soak about once a month altho I haven't figured out exactly how to do that with the VF cooling stems yet :hmm:

    Mine doesn't really get dirty, I just turn it upside down after each session to see. If there is a crumb I can poke it out with a toothpick and/or blowing, still with it upside down. If you do get a stain on the screen, use a iso dampened qtip to gently swab with Splinter upside down. You can also do this to clean the female glass walls inside of any thing is stuck there too. Oh btw the mouthpiece should not be resting on the heater screen, it locks in with the glass connection (if a joint is not 19mm length, then it may be resting on the screen and poking out the top a bit, this means it does not fit and should not be used or you risk damage to the unit). I tend to go a while before I clean my mouthpieces, the screens get dirtier first, so you can replace those before you clean the mouthpiece. It's a personal thing, could help improve taste if you don't let it get too dirty...

    Hi

    All hail to @HerbieVonVapster!

    https://forum.evolvapor.com/files/file/567-fcshare/

    Look for the SplinterDNAc.ecigprofile and either choose the material file "Warm.csv" or "Hot.csv".

    As Ryan of RBT said, probably all Splinters are not alike ("like snowflakes" ;) ) so you'd rather play around a little. I use temps between 185 and 195 C°

    So after a few days of only using the Fury, and getting in some fresh new CBD strains, I finally was able to do a nice long session on the Z. I no longer bother changing watts, I just park it st 33 and let it heat soak. I’m getting good clouds right from the first hit, I have my draw technique dialed in a lot more. With the cooling stem, the vapor never gets too hot but I can feel it warming up as the heater runs.

    The thing that really gets me is the flavor. It’s so rich and layered and even after six hits I got so much good flavor, it’s ridiculous. I am a flavor snob for sure, it’s my biggest gripe with the Fury 2, and the Z just delivers and delivers and delivers. What an incredible vaporizer.

    The Z train pulled into my postbox about 2 weeks ago and I've been reading through this thread up to here, gaining useful information from everyone (as usual) on my way through. I'm using the Z on an RXG3D (considering buying a Lost Vape Paranormal DNA250C) and seeing as I'm a weekend vaporist I've not had all that much chance to get things dialled in yet.

    What I'm really appreciating is the ability to set the power delivery up exactly as you want it, making the vaporizer capable of ripping an entire bowl in 1/2 enormous EVO/LSV style hits if needed and with temp/watt stepping type settings something to milk many (8-10) flavourful hits from. And of course the on demand functionality allows me to spread a bowl over an evening session to take just as much as I need picking it up again for a top up hit maybe an hour or two later.

    I've added small screens into each of the stock stems and the WPA at the base of the joint I then pour in or vacuum up some herb (about 0.1g) before capping it off with a rimmed screen. This screen arrangement is much like the EVO's ELBs and allows for easy and tidy stirring and prevents any debris from coming into contact with the heater cover, I get nice even roasting and typically don't need to stir.

    I need to try microdosing using 2 rimmed screens (one inside another) with herb sandwiched between them.

    Straight out of the box I found the stock stems far too hot for extended inhalations so I've mostly used it via the WPA connected to a 18mm j-hook, a VXH Helio, VXH (long and short) std mouthpieces or the LSV transfer wand, however to make this a bit more practical I've ordered the xl8r cooling kit :).

    Anyway so far I'm having lots of fun and a VAS killer I can certainly attest to.

    Same here, that's why bought a cooling mouthpiece and when I broke it and had to wait for the replacement, I clutched this together:

    This makes the default mouthpiece workable for me. I guess any way to reduce the diameter will have an effect in that direction.

    I have 4 or 5" M2M adapters and, when using my DNA mod, I hit my Z directly with them at low temps (330° to 345°) for flavor hits. Once I have gotten all the flavor I am likely to I crank my Z up to 375° all the way up to 400° to finish it off on a water piece. That is how I roll at home.
    When I take my Z and mod out in the world I bring my custom XL8R and it very effectively cools the vapor so I can go to these higher temps without killing my throat, tho I tend to stay below 385° without water.
    I rarely use any of the stock stems.

    It looks like others know what your saying but I don't understand. I have a p80 but not sure about turning the mod off and removing battery, Can you give a bit more detail?

    I have a v1 and a v2 Splinter and they both hotspot a little too easily for comfort (even when I'm pretty careful about temp and draw speed). I'm wondering if the longer heater of the Z makes it less prone to hotspotting. FWIW, "hot spot" and "hotspot" occur about half as frequently in this thread (5.7 occurrences per 1,000 replies) as in the Splinter thread (11.2 per 1,000).

    For those with both Splinter and Z experience, have you noticed any difference in their tendency to hotspot?

    Thanks!

    Yes, in my experience the Z heat up more evenly and easy to not having hot spot if compare to V1 that i had. But if you use the splinter in lower wattage and heat up slowly, it also could eliminate the hot spot, but i prefer use the V1 in fast way , so i would accept the hot spot and just give it a stir between 2-3 hots:)
