    I know this is completely off-topic and probably just a consequence of my cannabis consumption five minutes ago, but I sincerely wonder whether robots feel relief after farting...

    I just make tiny hash balls and then work them into the cotton fiber that I roll into a ball and inserting the side with more cotton towards the heater

    Or grab the hydrobrick and just throw some in the bowl, take one short hit to heat up hash, stir into perfect fluff and take the next hit to the fucking stars :D

    If it's programmed to feel and can relieve itself, I would bet yes?

    Lol, I've been enjoying my hopper tonight. The frogs here are going nuts, banjo frogs, tree frogs.
    A healthy and endemic environment is so solid to vape in!
    Under the stars no less ft. a beaming southern cross.
    Whilst hitting my recycler a meteoroid streaked across the sky. Good moment.

    Fucking love the hopper, gotta be able to get out there amongst it all and get fucking trippy.

    I've gotten 4 batts and 2 PFEs in the RMA parcel included for free postage and 4 batts a seperate time.
    It's usually a case by case basis, and I treat it as a perk to the annoyance of having to send them back.
    My advice would be to initiate the RMA and then after a day or more email HL re: the reference number to the warranty and say you'd like to purchase XYZ to be included with the returned hopper.
    Usually they respond and a free shipping option is created in the checkout.
    You are then free to build up a cart and utilise it...

    I'm not so sure the GH would be my go to for hash, but that said I've only tried it a few times. And with the sandwich method. I found it struggled to heat it enough.

    On Reddit there's a guide to make a concentrates 'sponge' out of a tea strainer (SS), which could change things up a bit and improve performance, but depending on the softness and quality I think Dynavap's degummed hemp fibre could be worth having if you have ongoing access...


    ..Do they sell hash readily in American Medical Marijuana dispensaries?
    Sounds pretty awesome!

    I think the sandwich method is only good for melting stuff, soft hash or hard just blocks all air.
    Tiny hash balls and roll some fluffed up cotton over it, good Airflow but takes practice to keep the ball small enough for the bowl otherwise everything blocks up

    Been thinking about melding a gram in ISO and then mixing in cotton and drying it off, could then keep in tiny jar and pull out ball when needed and total smeared over the cotton fibers

    Good for outside hopper use and stealth

    Like 13 months of use now without a single warranty claim. Beautiful day, beautiful vape. Just keeps chugging. It shows no signs of slowing down despite a slightly longer heatup. Could just be batts. No problem for me tho. Couple extra seconds won't hurt anyway.
    Enjoy your day everyone! :)

    Ok my Grasshopper should be returning tomorrow I think from warranty along with the PFE and a 14 - 18mm adapter. I’m excited to have it back. My Mighty has been pulling extra. I think my Cloud evo is broke just doesn’t work the same as it used to. Oh well :-)

    I was swapping between both front ends, standard and PFE, to see which I preferred native.

    The Standard front-end I prefer for direct draw.
    However both front ends get 'too hot' after two long hits (20 odd seconds).

    The PFE warms up less intensively at the opening (as it's so much wider), but the standard front-end at the tapered point is cooler for longer than the PFE, which is why I preferred it.

    Swapping between two front ends was ideal as once one was 'too hot' the other was good to go.

    There is noticeable airflow restriction with the standard front-end, but it's still open enough to get a smooth big inhale. I find the VapCap restriction a bit annoying, but I'd say for direct draw it's only a little more comfortable to use heat wise.

    Ultimately a set up like above is the best way to do dry hits, but for quick hits on the go direct either way is fine

    Hope mine comes today with exactly the same extras :)

    Yeah also some batteries

    Edit: and my Enano is "broken" but it works like always because it's just a hung of metal inside a wooden shell that cracked/broke

    Is that a coil in your pocket, or.... :lmao:

    Nice mod!

    Any Canadians here buy a hopper direct from HL? Just curious if you got dinged at the border with taxes/customs?

    Toronto Hemp Company has GH's on sale at the moment, but I fear them having old stock since the 2 I bought earlier this year from them were both DOA (as well as a third that a friend bought). The sale isn't anything spectacular compared to even HL's 10% off sales so i'm curious whether I should buy direct from the lab to ensure I have the "latest" revision, or not worry too much about it and just plan for RMA's (not that i'm not planning on it already).

    Still wondering what's up with the silicone mouth piece cover.. I used it like crazy, but that was before the PFE days!

    I found I had a very hard time with the standard FE with the draw restriction. I'm quite sensitive to it and can't use devices like the Solo, Air etc because of it. However when mated with a glass piece it was a non-issue? Only native dry use would cause me frustration due to lack of a big vapour cloud, so i'm hoping that the PFE fixes this for more.

    In the end I still pretty much only wanna use these things with glass pieces anyways. Save for the quick hit here and there, as to avoid back to back hits and excessive heat.

    No duties on my Hoppers or accessories so far from HL, but I think it's somewhat luck of the draw. The one advantage of them shipping with the super extremely cheap shipping option that takes forever is that it seems to thus bypass any scrutiny at the border (most of the time ... I imagine a small percentage must get caught ...)

    Finally sent my SS and Ti back on Friday. Didn't want to do it but why continue to put it off? There is at least a chance that what I get back operates better. If I can get one that doesn't seem like a laser-powered soldering iron on my lips, I should be happy.

    Shit I don't think I'm going to get mine either today. Oh well, another day with the Mighty won't be so bad. LOL

    I maybe do not understand your problem... but as far as they did not change the og mouthpiece what are you awaiting... the grasshopper has a short airpath so... you would only have two options go with the temps down or redesigned mouthpiece...

    I send my also to gh becauser of cop lights hope I will get a hotter running back as some mentioned big cloud at temp level 3 ...

    Hopper came today and the mail man was even early

    Fits pretty well to my foldable pipe, it stays with out any silicon tubing, just if you don't like to scratch your hopper then not for you :D
    [​IMG]

    Had a quick bowl native on the PFE and think it's still to hot on 4 but with Pipey my pipe friend 5 is just fine ;)

    Need to do some work at the farm but later today I am heading for a llllooonnngggg walk in the woods

    Edit: they send me a new magnetic charger, it seams to be working but th indicator light is really faint and blinks slow, does that sound right to those using the original charger?

    That pipe looks the business, nice easy way to take huge hits on the go.

    Your charger doesn't sound right, I hardly use mine, but I plugged it in to test it out and the LEDs are lit up as normal. Through some holes the light is far dimmer, but out of two or three it's very bright, which is ordinary for mine.
    Does the charger function?

    I had to get one replaced ages ago, gen 1, because the red light would only flash initially, then it would shut off and the battery wouldn't charge.
    I've read of that specific issue a few times since, occasionally with a gen 2, so they're not without issues.

    Charged for maybe 8 min so no idea if it worked, maybe keep it at my work desk so I can store and charge the hopper

    yeah mine was cutting out at about the third flash, so a matter of seconds.
    It might be all good..
    I'd suggest checking either contact for debris of any kind too

    Thanks Carol. This is both a battery terminal and a circuit board with surface mounted components and is definitely different than the OG one in mine.

    There seem to have been multiple iterations of changes to this board and elsewhere but f*ck if anybody can figure out the configurations they are shipping as Hopper says nothing and does not publish revision levels to customers.

    Anyone else order some new batteries with their latest rmd?, going to discharge and mark the mah on old batteries and new just for fun

    Realized it have one that is like 150 mah so maybe 200-300 mah actual capacity :D

    Finally found that one annoying battery
