Actually since it wasn't registered....there was no $45 fee. If I lost the box ID or if it was registered to someone else, it would have cost me $45 for the transfer. Check out my posts over the past few pages.... I feel their spirit of generosity loud and clear, however you are right with the inconsistency....hopefully they will remain consistent on this $45 and not on a case by case basis. I also forgot to add grind consistency. I switched to a coarser grind for better airflow and flavour, but the clouds took a pretty significant hit. Just went back to my Kannastor GR8TR and OMG! Clouds are now so thick you can chew on them! Crappier airflow, but that can be adjusted with load size, pack, etc. And lastly, the BATTERY! Duh! I just took what looked like a decent hit, and then I notice the blue flickering....so before it even turns red, swap out batteries, and OMG! Now THAT'S a REAL HIT! My wife's brand new Mighty has been put aside....I just can't get the clouds like the GH can deliver! With the Mighty I can get skim milk, but with the GH it is unscathed full fat milk! So thick you can't see through it.
