I have yet to see any proof of that
Ok boys, six months without ! Will it come back ? Good. Doesn't it ? Don't worry so much, it won't be my one and only daily driver anymore. Curiosly I still don't have my unit back , but I'm asking myself what shall I do when it will break next time, because I think this will happen for sure .
I'm going to start cleaning my GH threads with Blu-Tack more often. It's not a cure-all, but my Hoppers definitely seem to work a lot better after the cleaning...for a while anyway. Shorter heat-up times, better heater performance, bigger clouds, better extraction.
My Ti units also seem to produce more "residue" on the threads than my SS units.
One downside of using Blu-Tack is the inability to effectively clean the threads directly behind the pen clip on the back end.
Has anyone come up with a trick to get this area clean?
On a different topic, some FC members have expressed concern when they hear the Hopper "ticking". For me, hearing a more pronounced "ticking" sound is usually associated with a bigger hit!
Ok, I'm very, very impressed. That stuff makes helluva difference. I used the Tesa-Tack and right after that the BluTack and it removed so much more, I even noticed less resistance when screwing the backend in the body after cleaning. It's a lot stickier, happy I tried it.
Yay got my v5 rma ss body and rma ti unit in this morning. They both work great . Now we will see how long they last. Also I’ve had 4 different hoppers and they all tick. Even the new v5s I just got.....
Great news! My v5 updated ti comes Monday and hopefully a quick turn around on my cool runner SS
my new ss body took about 2 weeks. not terrible. The ti was there since January hahah
I am enjoying these v5s they are working superbly and they have way better draw resistance than the previous 2 I had/ have. Much more notable to use without the pfe. I loveee my hoppers
Ok new body arrived. Heats up way faster. And hitting great at 3.5 again lol. Backend same, batteries same.
I think this one is going to be rma’d shortly. It turns off randomly. And sometimes doesn’t turn on.
Edit: ok it’s dead. Doesn’t get hot.
One of the bodies I received will work only with PFE. Meaning if there’s nothing screwed on it won’t work, or if the original front end is screwed it wont work either. With PFE works fine. Any ideas ?
Update: now it happens with both bodies.
Update 2: one of them is working fine again!
Got an email from HL saying they're sending me replacement part(s). Not sure what they're sending exactly but I guess I'll find out some time soonish maybe.
Have you tried it with a different back end to identify the faulty part? When I first received my v5 I had similar issues and thought it was the body at first but it was the back end.
This happened to me but it was the opposite, my v5 body wouldn't work with my PFE and would work with the regular front end. Soaked and cleaned the threads in the PFE, cleaned the threads on the front end of the body till they were like new and it worked fine afterwards. My guess is that it's a thread connection related issue. Try cleaning the threads on the inside of your front end pieces.
I only have one back end. They sending me another body. I asked them, what about the back end.
My v5s won’t work with my pfe. When I used the regular it’s fine but when I use the pfe I’m getting red lights shortly after pulling. Reg front end seems to work perfectly with no issues
Weird. I always thought peices we're interchangeable... I could fire up all the hoppers I've owned with no front end even screwed on... What would cause this
Wait...that was within 6 hours...went from working great to dead!! and a V5 body!!
Do I have this right?
Yes, you absolutely do.
Holy cow...wow...I mean...really...wtf. So sorry.
Well, I guess V5 isn't the answer to all of our issues.
My v5 is walking to the the
Door as we speak. @newVaper420 not battery related?
Hahahahaha. Yeah, they made mention that v5 is their most reliable one yet.
However, all talk is meaningless LOL
I have 4 GHB 2's. All exhibit same behavior. Instant Blue Light. No heat.
I’m sure the v7 body will be the one
They always say, seventh tries a charm. But really @newVaper420 i feel for ya.. still following this thread hoping for a breakthrough
