    the pf mouth piece should have had some nipples, or cross bars to absorb more heat or layers of mesh.

    fill your pfe with tiny glass beads and fit a drip tip with a screen to the end.

    This is a cool idea. I guess the size of the beads would be really important since if they are too large they won't really cool much, but if they are too small they will stick together and obstruct airflow faster than i would want to be cleaning.

    Seems like this would result in less potential Imperial complications compared to using a Chillum, even tho chillum works nice. Worth a little extra cleaning prob

    Dang! Seeing those battery caps just made me think about several of my new batts which HL recalled that are sitting in kitty litter in a plastic bag. I hope no litter falls into the little venting hole on the positive terminal. Sparks could fly? I shudder to think.

    Last week I pulled a couple of them out of the kitty litter and used them again (as I had pre HL fire). They worked fine before and still do. I’m being vigilant with them however. My two remaining older batts are quickly declining. The Hopper is just too tempting for me NOT to use, which is why I bought one 3.5 years ago.

    It will be interesting to see when HL gets new batts given two potential suppliers in the not-too-distant future...:peace:

    Wrap them up tightly in a ziploc to avoid contamination, then put them in the kitty litter. :tup:

    Just wanted to point out that (as with literally every single promotion they've ever run) the early reservation that was supposed to end monday is still available on the site. They simply took down the banner telling people about it lol.

    I like @Ratchett s caps more than the full sleeves which I found a bit hard to get open. Love the caps.

    They are perfect for the intended function, IMO.

    Totally agree. I bought some caps and a 2x2 sleeve. It was a nightmare getting the batteries out. Finally, @Ratchett suggested I use a hair dryer on the last two to get the rubber softened. It took a while but it worked. Now that they're out, I'm sticking with the caps.

    I don’t know if this is the picture you’re looking for but I took this when my back end fell apart:

    Hi all!
    I'm sorry for my low english level, I'm french and I bought a grasshopper the same day of the HL fire (12 NOV, bad luck).
    I paid by Paypal, my order status is "in progress" but I don't know if I'll receive something.
    Now there is a new model of the grasshopper and I don't know if the "old" model 'll be available again.
    Do you think it 'll be shipped soon? How serious Hooper Lab is ? Should I ask a refund from paypal ?
    I have ankylosing spondylitis and I'm looking for a vaporizer to relieve suffering of this disease.
    Thanks.

    Let’s tag @Hopper Labs for you. Hopefully they will see the tag and respond.

    And I think your English is very good. Much better than my French which is non-existent. LOL

    Not exactly the one but now I see why the back ends can be so problematic at times. Those three contact points can wear down and/or get dirty. That explains why turning the back end back and forth and use of contact cleaner sometimes fixes them. This also seems like a way to predict if a back end may be beyond cleaning by the width of the gap under the dial.

    edit: it also makes sense that if these contacts are dirty it would create the hot back end issue.

    I'm not sure what size it is. I took my grasshopper to the vape shop and went through the ones they had till I found one that fit like a glove.

    that's weird. I placed a pre-order for the new hopper on November 29th, and my order number is 5076x
    Really? Only 40 orders occurred between @Malozorteils and mine? I didn't immediately jump on the pre-order wagon either....
    (or are order numbers not consecutive, and this is only a coincidence?)

    @Hopper Labs - I have a few questions – one on the heater and another on temperature settings.

    1) I recently received my newly repaired hopper (I got it in the mail the day before the fire - GT012109). This may be a placebo effect since it's been so long since I've had a working hopper but I don’t ever remember being able to whitewall my 1.5 foot bong on the first dial setting, ever. Before this repair I would only use my hopper on setting 5 – that was the only way it would whitewall my bong. Are these new heaters more efficient some way to enable extraction at a lower temperature?
    2) Can you please explain how the power consumption varies from one temperature setting to the next? For example let’s assume every hit on the hopper lasts 5 seconds, should you be able to get twice as many hits on temp setting 2 than temp 4?
