    So you use Evo ELBs in your EQ? Would you mind detailing to me how you go about it, and what your reasons for doing so are? Just curious, and if I like the idea enough I may get some ELB's to try out for myself.

    Im using the DDave 18mm-14mm, also at 225C but through my double perc Nice Glass water tool, I like it.


    Ive been experimenting with using concentrates wrapped in cotton in the EQ, aswell as my solo2 and man does it ever work well! Ive been starting to run low on flower the last little while, but have been getting bits of concentrate here and there instead while the supply chain gets reorganized. I do usually prefer to use mostly flower and a little concentrate, but Id rather have some beautifully crafted shatters than nothing!

    Going to enjoy a nice blend of Warlock+CBD, mixed with some Sour Candy shatter in the EQ

    This thread popped up on the front page a few days ago and reminded me of my old EQ in the cupboard.
    Brought it out today and cleaned everything up.

    This thing still packs a serious punch!!
    I am sitting at 188C, 0,06g elbow pack tamped down and through a WT.
    One large, tasty cloud perfectly delivered!

    I think it may stay on the desk for a while!
    Sometimes i think about the super milky bags it makes...

    Of course i am still using the OG @DDave EQ kit, which makes it go to 11!

    Nice. I recently got an eq. It's been my first vape for years. This thing performs .

    After a few issues with the DDave kit got rectified, I'm happily using the v2.5 adapter on it .

    It was cool in retrospect. I got to experience the original cyclone bowl, v1 ddave , and finally the v2.5 . Not sure if I'll try the v3, I thought the glass screen was in the glass piece that goes into the vape . Glad I figured that out before I ordered!

    I own an Extreme-Q and used to use it quite a bit. Then I got a Crafty and got used to using the S&B dosing capsules. I find these so convenient and neat, and the Crafty vapes so well that I don't use the Q often any more.
    If I had a way to use a dosing capsule in the Q, I would probably use it more.
    Does any one have any idea of an adapter that could fit a dosing capsule in the Q? I can just drop one in the the usual bowl but it doesn't really seal and doesn't work all that well because the heated air can go around the capsule.

    Why not just elbow pack? Takes a second to load and dump and once you get your load size right, one hit snap hits are super medicating!

    I use the OG DDave bowl with the EQ elbow and an EQ screen, good to go!

    I rarely vape alone, and no matter how much I tamp down, it always ends up elbow packing itself . With 2 people, it's easier for me to "vape til I'm good" stir and pass, rinse repeat

    Even with a group of people, I elbow load for each individual hit!
    That way everyone always has a fresh, tasty hit!
    No seconds for the poor guy/gal to the left at my place! LOL!

    Hi, I'm hoping I could get some advice, please
    I'm being offered a used unit at a price I believe to be pretty good for my circumstances. Wanted to know if you think i should buy it.

    The seller claims it was purchased directly from Arizer, last year on April. He claims it is working flawlessly and is in perfect condition. He says he stopped using it because he got a Plenty. The max temp he used it at was 420 F, and he says the unit does not emit any smells if turned on with out any herbs. I have 10 days from purchase date to get my money back if I'm not satisfied. The photos he shows are recently taken and the unit appears to be in great condition (here is a photo of all he would give me https://imgur.com/a/lXntT8U). The unit is missing the stirring stick and has no dome screens; it only has one flat screen, has two Cyclone bowls, the aroma dish, instruction booklet, and two tubings (one used, one new, apparently silicone).

    He is asking for 100 usd. I KNOW that's how much it costs brand new right now, but in my country import fees and all that make its price double in the best scenarios. Purchased directly from Arizer or any other internet authorized dealer, would end up costing me at least 230 usd. Purchasing it here in a vape store is around 200 usd but there is no authorize dealer here and fake products are very common here, so there is even a chance i would pay all that for a fake.

    So, why do I want to buy it: 1. it's under half price of a new one (in my country), 2. seems to be in good pretty good shape, 3. I want to believe it's not a fake.
    All this being said (sorry for the long post), do you think I should I buy it? if i bought it, what signs could i look for for it's authenticity?

    From what i've read on the web the adapter brand could be a tell (this units adapter is branded INTERTECK, not QUILI as others i've seen), but what other things might reveal it's a fake?

    Thanks in advance for reading my post and for any input.

    @cosimo Welcome to FC, its a great community.

    There should be a serial number on the bottom of the unit, if authenticity is a big issue for you, ask for the serial number, and then contact Arizer with it and ask if it is a EQ serial number for a unit that was purchased last April. Explain the situation and it should be fine, since the seller has offered you a period of time to refund the sale after purchase you have the option of waiting to have the unit in hand to do this yourself. Arizer should let you know whether or not the unit is authentic at the very least I would think, do be aware you will not be covered under the warranty.

    I say go for it, it is a better price than you will otherwise get at a large margin you have said so why not. If it is in good shape as it seems to be you should be fine. Does it come with the remote? This isnt a essential piece, but I find it convenient personally. If it doesnt have one you can get one separately.

    My EQ's power supply brand is "ENG" and the cord is "Linoya" I would think that the brand of these will change from time to time, and I assume you are using 220v? If so that would also account for things being different. My EQ is 100% authentic for what its worth, purchased from Arizer last year in September or October

    Is this a good vaporizor?

    The only thing putting me off is the PCB as ive read that the air flow runs right past all the electronics?

    Hi Dave,

    This is a good vaporizer, I bought one of these a few weeks ago and was thinking the same thing as you with the airpath.

    Click to play YouTube Video


    In this video you can see inside the extreme q, from about 30 seconds in you can see the part where the airpath enters the device. This is quite big and in my opinion the electronics aren't close enough to the heat to cause an issue. That being said though I think they could have done something about that ribbon cable and maybe added a dust filter.

    I have a mighty and a plenty but i use this daily because I can use as little as 0.05g of material to fill a balloon. I rarely use the whip because of this but when I do it has nice flavour. I can also use a lot of different adaptors and hook this up to a bong or a water pipe, then i can either toke or use the fan to push some vapour through.

    It's great for beginners and versatile but there are downsides. It becomes a bit of an art finding the right temperatures and letting the glass heat up to get the best consistency but that's quite interesting for me. Other people may not have as much patience or enthusiasm.

    Hope I helped.

    Additional to the comment above check out the DDave mods too for this vaporizer. He seems like a good guy and is pretty prevelant in this thread. The mods seem to iron out some slight issues with this vape.

    FORUM MODS - Sorry for double post but I was told 8 hours and then we can post again if no reply. If you wish to merge please do so

    Modnote: After six hours the edit window closes and you are free to post again. No need to merge.

    Sorry for the triple post on here but I am adhering to the rules of the forum - over 6 hours between posts. I just want to share some of my early experience with this machine.

    The cyclone bowl actually seems to work quite nicely with a bubbler. I had a full cyclone last night hooked up to a 14mm grizzly glass through an elbow adapter. This was attached to the stock whip. It's the first time I've actually seen the herb twist through the cyclone bowl through inhalation. I got the temperature down to between 330 and 340 F but I did heat the cyclone bowl up for quite a while before hand. This has been my most pleasurable way of using the extreme Q so far.

    I have used the elbow packing method and do enjoy it. I usually use this with the balloon, I can use as little as 0.05g and use 200 C/ 392 F It's not the biggest cloud and I would like to reduce this temperature in the long run. I consider this as micro dosing and over the last few weeks of using this vaporiser can sometimes make do with just one of these a day resulting in miniscule costs of herb compared to combustion. I use the elbow screen let my herb sit in fairly loose and place another flat screen on top - I have these domed so they catch the side and sort of make a lid, mainly to stop any herb falling out as I load a few of these up at a time and then just pop one in when I want to medicate

    My last note is more of a gadget/boys toy for the vape. I purchased a Broadlink RM3 - this is a 'universal remote' - its actually a device that looks like a mini bluetooth speaker. Powered by USB and connects to WiFi. I then had to program the buttons of the Extreme Q remote in to this via an app on my android smartphone (works with ios too) Now I leave my remote in my drawer and control the extreme q through the phone via WiFi - you could potentially control your vape from anywhere in the world. It's not perfect, there is a little bit of lag and a few missed button presses at times but I'm situated in my garage a good few meters away from my main router.

    All in all a good vaporizer for the price, coupled with the fact that I can make me bud last a hell of a lot longer if I really want or need. There is a bit of a learning curve and I think getting the balance right between temperature and load makes a big difference.

    I also have a Plenty and Mighty by S&B this might contradict other peoples opinion or use but the extreme Q is my daily driver. The Plenty seems to need feeding quite a bit. It does provide good lift off but without a proper stand I can't leave it out on my worktop and forget about it or pretend it's an aromatherapy diffuser. I'm super cautious about having people over and setting it down somewhere where it will likely get stood on or burn someone. With the Q it just sits there and takes whatever I throw at it. I mainly use the S&B vapes as a treat or use the mighty when I just want to put a film on and zone out. All 3 of these seem to have their benefits and also downsides.

    Really glad these products are on the market and I was able to kick combustion. I hope I can help anyone considering either of these vaporizers.
