    I just got one of these from vapefiend in the UK, so far so good! I haven't quite got the technique down yet but I do believe I am getting there. I have the high temp version.

    The flavour is great and I can get it to function fairly well but I think I am blasting it with a little too much heat because I seem to use up a whole bowl in a couple of hits. Practice makes perfect I suppose! It seems quite hard to combust with, I haven't done it yet but the material is very dark brown.I thought I would get a lighter in the kit but I didn't so I am using my vapman lighter.

    How do I clean the part that the flame hits? It's starting to look gunky already.

    Are all the current caps considered high temp now including the Saucer?

    Here is my older (about 4 years) Lotus cap (not a DD any more). I never bothered to try and clean it...

    I do not see it on his site & The Lotus is not listed in the categories.
    The one on the picture seems new, never used .. Maybe (certainly) is it a special order? @Ed's TnT
    really nice one !

    It is quite lovely. I always use glass with my lotus so it is not for me, but it is certainly a nice option over the aluminum stem, tho I think the aluminum might cool a little.

    (I like to say that like the Brits do, rather than our boring pronunciation)

    The wooden Lotus stem is a work in progress. Ed has you covered.

    The plate you hit the torch on is the only part that is "high temp". All the plates now are high temp, but Lotus still sells the daisy stamped one (as an accessory) that is not high temp.

    Should we just vote?

    Aluminum (a-lum-in-num) is exactly how it’s both spelled and pronounced so I guess we can’t vote on it. :)

    What can we expect for 420 sales from lotus?

    This appears to be my next vape...

    No need to vote... the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry recognised Aluminium as the official spelling in 1990 :D

    The guy who discovered it named it "ium" first, then "um" then back to "ium"... so just like armour, colour, centre, litre, licence etc I'm afraid we spell it correctly :tup: ;)

    Uh, it isn't really about the spelling, it is about the pronunciation.

    They are very different vapes so it is hard to say which is better. The VC may be stealthier because you can heat it in your lap or use an IH, but I think Lotus gives a bigger hit. It really depends on what you are looking for or trying to accomplish.

    I use my Lotus on a WPA almost all the time so I am always using it on glass, and usually with water. There are a lot of ways to use both devices, so they aren't that easy to compare.
    Personally I love them both and they are 2 of my 3 favorite vapes. The third uses battery power...

    Vapcap is less fussy about the heat source, and for me personally, I combust more often with lotus,
    especially with water.

    First of all: There is no best.

    I like the M for out & about.
    I like the Lotus for the flavors. J-hook style.

    Vapcap = Conduction
    Lotus = Convection

    Vapcap = Session
    Lotus = On Demand

    Vapcap = "Click!"
    Lotus = Zen.

    :peace:

    Is there a difference between the black and silver cap besides the color and price?
    Can't seem to find any 420 deals for Europe.

    From the lotus website: "This and the black cap are both good for both flowers and concentrates. The difference between the two is in style and color, not function."

    I have a Nonavong-S. The sweet and short of it is, I always reach for my Lotus at home over everything else.
