Hey thanks! That's a nice case!
I have an old case for my GH, but it is no good quality. I would like to have the same kind with better quality, but I can't find this kind to buy.
The good thing on this case is, you can easely get the GH in and out. A Magnet hold this Case tight. No problem putting the GH with the silicon mouthpiese in it. Its a small Case and good for on the road.
If someone discovers a similar case, please info me.
Check out delta 3studios, it's @Ratchett who's an active member here's site. A number of us have his leather pouch and we all love it!
For me it is to big. I would like to wear the GH seperatly from the Battery and other stuff.
Every day, observing how the hopper works....
The latest observation is that when the flashing red lights start, the hopper continues to work, BUT not at the same intensity.
I was able to extract more vapor from a fresh battery after having observed flashing reds during the previous use on the dying battery.
Is that consistent with Hopper's Law?
I noticed this as well. My hopper just had the flashing red lights to indicate low battery and I wasn't getting much vapor or feeling any hot air as I was taking my draw on temp 5. My bowl was almost done but had a tiny bit left, so I put in a fresh battery and pulled again on temp 5 and got a decent cloud. So to me red flashing lights means no power/hot air. So I'm really only getting about 1.8 bowls per battery.
^ I second this. Definitely notice degradation to the batteries after a few months. Still works quite well, I'd only get one bowl out of concentrates, and 1.8 sounds fair for flower. (if you're going to maximum extraction, alternatively I can go through a few chambers and then re-use the ABV)
hope you guys like this video...i made it to put my thoughts out there then decided to learn a bit more about video editing and this is what i came up with...

use this guide to skip around:
AM I BORING? TRY WATCHING THIS VIDEO IN DOUBLE SPEED!!! (click on gear icon at lower-right corner of video window and select 2x speed)...but i tried some different editing things in this video for the 1st time...im just having fun with it and learning how to edit videos so hopefully they will be better in the future...

For what it's worth:
I have received one of @Kfirrer 's 3D printed hopper cases the other day, and although I can't yet vouch for fit (my hopper and batt's are still en-route) I'm pretty happy with what's turned up.
I got a grey one, and although it doesn't have the looks of the leather cases that are available elsewhere for vapes and pens etc, it does appeal as a good design.
The size is satisfyingly small while still offering storage for the vape, herb, and a battery.
Mine came with two small 3D printed containers that fit inside the battery compartment.
One has a press-fit lid, the other a screw fit lid.
The surface finish is quite crude plastic, so don't get your hopes up for perfection, but for the asking price I can confirm that I'm perfectly happy.
The case seems strong, and very practical.
I imagine that it would protect the Hopper from all but the very worst punishment.
The threads which are on the caps are a very low pitch (presumably by design) and somewhat crude too, but again they seem to work well, and the low pitch aids strength to resist over tightening and allows the quick removal of the lids.
I bought this case because I like the design, and if my hopper fits well when it turns up I will be very happy with it.
If a more expensive version with better surface finish/fit or materials becomes available at a later date I'll probably get one of them too.
A wooden version of this case, like a dugout, would really be fantastic, but I suppose that requires a whole other tool set.
I'll be back to report on fit once my Hopper arrives.
BTW @Kfirrer , you need to get a 'manufacturer' tag or the mods will take exception to you posting regarding stuff you're selling.
Find a mod, click on their name, click on 'start a conversation' and hopefully they will be able to advise you further.
mine acts the same ... as the battery depletes (when blue lights or red lights beginn to blink) performance degrades... not that much but a fresh battery works best in my opinion... I am not a battery expert but this should be normal behaviour...
***EDIT: so i got my SS back from repair today...is there anything that people want to see a video about regarding the 2 models? i wouldnt mind taking another crack at editing a video...its not going to be as good as vaporizer wizard or the critic or any of the regular guys, but im down to find some answers to some questions...i have a nightcore 2 slot charger w lcd screen, 1 gray Ti gh, 1 SS gh (2x repaired), almost a dozen batteries, i have the Ti charger as well as the SS charger, i have an infrared laser thermometer, a scale that goes down to the tenth of a g, a d020-d mini glass bubbler (cracked but working), a dhgate hydrotube, i dont have any concentrates atm and have about 3 nugs left of herb...is there anything that people want me to test?
btw, shoutout to these nice heavy duty baggies (https://imgur.com/a/FqYoN) that their extra accessories & repairs come in...
Update: After trying to wipe my USB chargers clean with iso to remove metal debris unsuccessfully lol, I finally used compressed air and just blew both charger magnets clean with an air wand.
Both worked like new again after doing this.
Still loving these hoppers.
I am Ninja.
Here is my dilemma
Got a ti hopper on preorder, saying August, but who knows. To hold me over, i jumped on a SS used.
2 batts only
2 more batts
From what i'm reading on batteries, you need lots. I wish I could get my 8 extra batteries shipped before my Ti Hopper. I included that as a comment in the 2 battery order. Are they responsive, or am I just gonna have to wait until my preorder ships to get anything? If so, anyone have a couple of batts to spare? Please PM me.
Thanks fellow hoppers....
I thought batteries have a "limited" shelf life regardless whether they are used (?). For that reason, I'm not buying a lifetime supply now. I have extras, sure, but I figure I'll buy more about once a year and toss the ones that stop holding a charge.
Having said that, I get that it also depends on usage so others may be switching out batteries much more often than me. And also for those with multiple hoppers.
So far, and for me, I'm finding that 3 for each hopper is the sweet spot. I wait until 2 are drained and throw them on the d2.
How are others managing their battery life and usage?
3 per hopper is ample, unless you want to continue usage with limited charging options. I have a bunch for extended camping trips etc. but also to extend the batch lifetime by sharing the charge cycles over a larger range.
I can only charge one at a time (my external charger is broken on one slot) and I haven't found this to be a hindrance to heavy usage. At worst I have a deplete battery sitting idle for ~10mins before the charger is free to swap into.
If you are seshing with multiple people, I'd say a battery per person is what you want.
1 per person is totally feasible, I shared mine with ~9 people using 8 batteries.
Because my first 5 batteries are almost dead, I ordered 15 new batteries. I will get a new backend, I hope this effect the batteries, to live a bit longer ;-)
Furthermore I'm waiting for my Firefly2. So I have to use the GH only underway.
Still working weird, but I can't do without.
From Hopper Lab's Instagram:
If they keep that pace up I should have my plain Ti preorder very soon. I'm eager to compare it with the SS I got from Vaposhop. I'm still loving my SS after nearly 6 weeks of ownership.
hmmmm... 12 batteries, two hoppers and you want to work on your film skills? How about mastering the "long take"
I'd like to see one seamless video of you, with or without a buddy, killing 12 batteries in one take through two hoppers.
Sure, you won't be able to edit in the state you wind up in, but long takes really only need minimal editing. haha
um, each grasshopper is supposed to come with a battery right? not including the free one for early pre-orders. i ordered 2 TI's and i have a total of 2 batteries. i ordered an extra and was thinking there would be 4 in total with my order. does the math sound right?
edit: yes i'm an idiot who didn't bother to open up the grasshopper. jumped the gun there. crisis averted
Yep. If you're an early pre-order, you should have gotten 4 batts total.
There seems to be a gap in your mouthpiece. Have you checked to see if your screen is screwed in tight?
Let me know if anyone has noticed this: quite often, I know my battery is fairly fresh, the blue lights will flicker during my draw instead of being solid blue and heat productions is slightly lower. Well, after screwing the back end (not the heat adjust) back and forth about three times, the lights stop flickering and heat up is normal. That and the battery lasts longer!!!
That sounds a lot like what I am talking about in my post a couple days ago, except I have been taking the backend all the way off and putting it back on. I will have to try what you are saying the next time I experience that behavior.
