    Correct, the inside plate is held in place with some sort of special ring. If you look back a few pages, you'll see my picture of the inside The ring holding that inner plate came loose from over-heating.

    If your inside plate is loose, your cap is toast

    When my medical condition tries to come as a MONSTER I break out the LOTUS.
    You need relieve not wait for a heat up time.

    If I have any trouble I have to get a new one!

    Lol. I forgot to mention that when I ordered my special screwdriver(:tup:),
    I had also ordered a pack each of the standard and fine mesh screens, to see what the difference is.
    I received two packs of the same size screen, so either there was an error and I still don't know which size I have, or @Max Jitter decided to split the difference and only carry one size but forgot to update the site?

    I use the same screen as my SOLO?
    It works fine for me?
    Am I using the LOTUS wrong?

    I agree completely. I would have been in trouble this morning without my Lotus.

    @natural farmer turned me on to the LOTUS and I use the SOLO a lot as well however it took me a while to get the LOTUS wired. I must tell you when I feel sick I grab the LOTUS for fast relief.

    How do you spell relief?

    Mistake. Contact us through the website and tell us which type screen was missing. Don't forget your order number or shipping info.

    That's my point actually, that because both bags of screens are the same I have no idea which size is missing. That's why I ordered both sizes, to see what the difference is.
    Maybe I need to take a photo of them?

    Do you have the screen that came with your Lotus? That one should be standard. You can check the ones you just got against the original to determine which they are. I got my Lotus recently, and I ordered some fine screens, and they were smaller than the ones installed in the stem and WPA.

    If there was no marking on the package then the screens are the standard mesh. Send us your shipping info and we'll make your order right.

    Will do, thanks :tup:

    I had a feeling that they were standard because I've seen finer,
    but I've also seen courser so I wasn't quite sure.

    edit: I just checked and both packages have an "F" marked on them :rolleyes:

    I sent a message through the web site with my order number.

    Damn.
    Perhaps I hit it too hot, or overuse, but I see cracked plate #3 (old style).

    Hey guys. Started reading up on this Lotus and looks like a great little beast.
    Any information on best place to buy and any discount codes?
    Seems the cracking plates is the Achillies heal for it. Is this a big concern generally?
    Best to get pipe+gong adapter kit?
    TIA

    Don't let that discourage you. Mine is an old version and the plate has been redesigned.
    In any case, the customer support is top notch and have been addressing all customers with plate failures.

    Get the WPA~ It is a perfect pairing with water

    @Pipes I hated the LOTUS at first.
    However at night before bed this is my medical device!

    For me it is just like a joint however healthier and I think the taste is very good!

    Plus it pairs well with water pieces.

    The SS adapter I prefer over a glass on because it's unbreakable.

    I have other vaporizers like you however I use this one a lot lately!

    Mine is scorched however still works well. It's pretty ugly now but it has so much character! (IMO)

    I'm sold. And SS adapter it is. After all, I'm as clutsy as @ataxian. If that's possible.:lol:
    Should I get from lotus.com? Any FC discounts?
    TIA

    No FC discounts from Mendo directly - though you might find an FC discount for a vendor online that sells it. -edit! I stand corrected, there's a 15% coupon code for 4th of July

    I would buy direct and give MT the business, it's worth the $99 for the WPA kit!

    I've dropped my Lotus and the WPA from standing height onto a concrete patio. The 18-14mm glass adapter I was using shattered into a million pieces. But the WPA and the lotus cap survived without any problems.

    Thanks for the info. Was thinking the pipe too, just for the portability aspect. Maybe instead get one of those smaller 90 degree 14mm adapters.
    Any suggestions there? Any other options for portability besides the OEM pipe section?
    My trigger finger is itchy...

    options are pretty varied, anything with a 14mm joint will work.

    I have been enjoying mating with the Sheldon Black Travel Bubbler, but there are smaller and more portable options out there.
