    I miss you, Vito. A good log vape is a special thing, indeed.

    And I miss my fellow JedHI. It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me. But know I’m always with you.

    @Alan - Cheers and I hope you’re well.

    What an amazing vape. I've been lucky enough to get a glimpse at where it all happens, sampling many units / roasting tubes. I think at some point my face just fell right off. Everybody needs to get HI!!!

    Can anyone give me some tip on using it? I use a E nano all the time at my friends place...but for some reason how I use the e nano isnt working on this HI right now. I got everything from toasty power supply and volt controller, all glass. I am currently using the recommended 12v.

    My first hit is usually pretty good, but after that it goes down hill. The avb doesnt look brown at all, just tan. I have not burnt or anything to that extent yet.

    how do those youtubers milk their bongs?

    any tips for a noobie?

    When in doubt, just crank up the voltage/temp a bit. Glass has less conduction than the Nano's stainless heater cover, so getting a bit more heat should compensate. Also helps with vapor density in case of not tight fitting stems and roasting tips, which allow for a bit too much air.

    @204Markie - I use silicone tubing with my HI on occasion. It fits nicely onto the 10mm glass mouthpiece tube of my Slide-a-Bowl tube or connects to a 13mm glass tube using a Turbo Tube sleeve. It helps to use the two screen method so that you don’t risk loosing any material when you turn the tube upside down and place it on the HI. I wrap the silicone with cotton string so that it never gets sticky to touch and doesn’t attract every stray hair or dust particle in the house.
    Hope you have good luck with the vapor lung. They are so much fun.

    @almost there - Glad to hear you are getting the hang of the various roasting techniques with the HI. The SS heater cover is definitely faster at extracting the oil, but I enjoy the flavor so much more with the glass heater cover. Nice to have both so you can hit the one you are in the mood for at the moment.

    @Vitolo - Good to see you. Thanks for the kind words.

    @bollabmo - Glad to hear you are enjoying your HI. I can make about any type of tube / adapter you can imagine. There is no waiting list for roasting tubes. I just work them into my next batch. Have been making quite a few tubes lately.

    @Vapinghole - Good to see you again. Have missed seeing your posts. Keeping busy with new vaporizers and roasting tubes as usual.

    @v.bow - Thanks for posting the photo. Great way for some additional vapor cooling. The voltage does need to be a bit higher for some darker clouds with the glass heater cover HI’s. So nice that the voltage controller can boost the voltage in addition to lowering it.

    @Bravesst - Glad you got to try out the HI (in addition to many others) while you were here. Thanks again for the Lil’ Bud. It is a part of my daily rotation. A single battery will last me for the entire day.

    The HI is a great addition to my arsenal, and the perfect balance to Lil' Bud. It's hard to beat the smooth, potent vapor, and to me is kind of gold standard everything else needs to live up to. I don't get a chance to use a plug in too often in my situation, but when I do, it's party time. For me it's the perfect pass around the table vape, setting up all my guests with their own roasting tubes. It doesn't get any better than that.

    Oh man I played around with a silicone bowl tonight and I'm wrecked. It milked my bubbler more than the ss bowl somehow. Definitely more vapor
