    Postage might be zero, you never know. See what they say. And I know what you mean about not messing with something that works. But who knows, maybe the capsules weren't working perfectly for everybody?

    Nobody ever complained on here cept when resin made them stick which is why we had the answer to heat to remove. Nah they didn't even offer free postage to fix an issue I have so I am doing it through who I bought it from better service.

    i ordered my inhalater xp before some days...i hope it comes with proper capsules :p... I think if they made a capsules from a material that doesnt need replacing(just cleaning) and doesnt get destroyed so easy (even if they charged it a bit more) i would buy it for sure...

    I don't know why they don't make them out of glass. glass is inert easy to clean and doesn't deform with heat....

    It is possible that the polyimide is less receptive to heat than glass... I don't know

    I continually clean my capsules ...
    I do an Iso shake regularly, and am on my second capsule (been good for months)
    I use an Iso q tip to stroke the outside of the capsule, and it always comes up discolored.
    I have NO sticking.

    Can we completely immerse the capsule in iso, Vitolo ? No problem with polyimide ?

    Vito those new capsules are way different. The old ones are fine. I still have both my originals but will have to return those two new ones. Did you check your new ones? They are really tight and don't click. I suggest not using them cause there will be an issue. You don't see me get mad often.

    Le immerse away. I leave them in iso over night. I had the same question at the beginning and nobody new so I just did it and like I said earlier I am still on the original first one. I got my INH in Aug.

    I have no new ones.
    I have 6 unused older style caps sitting waiting for me to break the one I am using.

    You have the same ones I got with you. Those ones aren't good. Put them in you will see they are different.

    I just tested all of my capsules.
    They all fit the same, and click in place.
    I would check the screen inside the unit and make certain it is clean and seated all the way!

    It is new so it is clean. It is both capsules I bought and neither click in place and are very tight. I don't know how to check the screen or what to do short of tossing them in the garbage.

    Don't throw anything in the garbage. We will look at your unit and the capsules.

    You know I get really frustrated when stuff doesn't work. I will calm down or try but been mad since last night. I will report back on the end result for all that want to know. I want the click back if and when I ever need them. I take really good care of my caps and think they will last as long as the vape itself.

    Was wondering if anyone knew of a source for new capsules that didn't cost 10 bucks each?

    The temperature dial is fully adjustable. Place temperature halfway between 7 and 8 and you get 7.5.
    The polyimide has many advantages over glass; thin for good conduction, no risk of breaking into sharp slivers, reasonable cost, may be manufactured with a tapper. In our opinion, there are only advantages to polyimide over glass. Being a high tech and still unknown material is only drawback.

    I tried for a while to find the post where it's described how to fix the capsules to no avail.

    I was almost able to fix mine but not quite. First I put the polyamide roll In the mouthpiece... Then Insert the white spacer thing and push it down with something.

    This works to make the capsule looked fixed... But the process of pushing the white bit down causes the open end to get wider.... And it's too wide to fit in the inh. Tried several things to close it up but I just crush the polyamide more with each attempt. I have to admit that stuff is tough as nails though.

    I've haven't done this, but I think you should be able to fix it by making an outer support tube.

    Get paper, scissors and tape. Cut paper to size of polyimide. Roll up paper and insert into mouthpiece. Make sure it's a straight tube that doesn't get wider, then tape it. Next, roll up polyimide and insert into paper tube, slide it down into mouthpiece. Then insert white spacer into polyimide tube and push down into mouthpiece. The outer paper tube should prevent the open end of the polyimide tube from slipping and expanding. When the spacer is all the way down, remove the paper tube and the polyimide tube should slip into place and retain its shape.

    Again, I've never done this, but in theory it should work. Good luck!

    Neat idea! I actually managed to repair mine on the 15th try or so after I last posted by trying random things.

    Ended up drilling a hole in a scrap of wood to stick the mouthpiece in and thus free up a hand. I then used the free hand and a pair of pliers to tug on the top corner of the rolled up polyamide as I forced the white spacer down with an upside down screw. Not perfect but it's worki g enough for some clouds..... Crisis averted :D

    Thanks for the additional idea. I'd try that next time.... Only quick thought is that the paper might just rip open because the forces involved here are pretty intense.

    Glad you got your clouds back! :cheers:

    Re the paper ripping: instead of scotch tape, a couple of wraps around the paper tube with good packing tape should prevent that.

    The capsules are no longer click type. All capsules are smooth bore. The click was produced by a slightly oversized screen filter that deformed the capsule body making a small resistance at insertion.

    Please be cautious tampering with capsules. Unproperly reconstructed capsule may lead to destruction of heating chamber. Capsule from factory has a very slight taper for easy insertion and polyimide body overlap is predetermined to avoid interfering with overlap in heating chamber.
