    It will work, but you have to be careful to not over-tighten it; it can crack Mighty's housing. Also, I think this is the one where the screen is positioned pretty far from the top of the bowl, so folks recommend either a top-screen on the load or an oil pad - as a spacer, so material doesn't loosen up or swirl around.
    But thank you for pointing out that PIU carries this adapter; they've not been easily available in US!

    Yeah their service was amazing. I emailed them a question Monday morning, placed the order Monday just after noon and I should have it today.

    Yes, for me it's worth it. I enjoy clever vape devices, and get a sense of sustained value, beyond functionality. We are partly paying for an idea. An idea of the vapor, by the vapor, and for the vapor. Don't think anyone is getting rich off these gizmos.

    (Disclosure: when I pitched it to @Ratchett last year, I gave him some seed money for materials, and then gave him a major headache when I prematurely posted a beta version. But I paid for my tray.)

    Fill the caps on a table or tray,
    just as you would when rolling a j.
    Use a brush along with a card,
    then your cleanup isn't so hard.

    After ejecting the first eight caps, it's tempting to load her up with eight more. Start selling them in tiny plastic bags on the corner.

    I have read a lot in this thread about spacers and pads etc but was skim reading. Need to get the unit in my hands and play with it a bit before I can understand exactly what y'all are talking about

    Lol, I'm still hoping to get a bit more feedback from early adopters before I make the next batch of loading trays!

    I'm thinking about adding a pocket on one side to catch excess herbs. Are rounded corners good, or too much of a pain? @ChooChooCharlie or anyone else - PLEASE pm some thoughts on how I can tweak/improve for the next large batch of trays.

    Hopefully I can begin taking preorders for the next batch soon, but I don't like taking money when I don't have a proper ETA for shipping.

    Sounds like the puzzle pieces should start falling into place for you soon!
    It should arrive at *80% or more charged. Plug in and charge to full right away - should not take very long; you can speed-read the manual and play with accessories while you wait.
    Then, in the interest of safety and science, with chamber empty, run it up to full temp a couple of times to be sure it's not stinky or smokey or anything else bad.
    As HAL said in 2001: A Space Odyssey, "I'm completely operational and all my circuits are functioning perfectly." I used to use that sound bite as my computer's "startup" .wav file, followed by "Ow!...I feel good!..." (James Brown).
    Enjoy!
    Thanks for indulging me. I've been on forced 'break' for 7 weeks now and I'm more than a little nuts.

    Lol thanks so much. I bet that startup made you chuckle every time!

    At what temps are y'all vaping flower? Or what do you recommend?

    It depends but in general my wife and i are low temp vaporists. Using the capsules, we ussually start at about 340F and finish at about 370F give or take a little.

    When it was new we used to finish at 410 most times, when I wanted a quick bowl, I'd start at 380F, but all that grew old and now we just milk the great flavor hits and when they fade we stop. It helps that we have a good stash I guess.

    I'm sure you will fall into a pattern after a while but do experiment, with temps, grind, varieties, water or whatever, and soon you will be a very happy camper.

    Thank you Shredder! That's funny...last night I went 185 then finished it off at 210.

    Really like it. Loading tool is pretty cool. What is the white plastic thing in the middle? Looks like a tamping type device but seems small. I don't think I'm using this little grinder/loading contraption right. But it's cool...it loads nice bowls. I hit 3 full bowls over the night and was done! Didn't mess with the capsules yet.

    What is the ideal amount to pack in the bowl or does it matter?

    To each thier own. Big small tight loose. You make it how you like it lol. I like the fine grind or coarser but with Kief in the middle and less is more. I learned that the hard way. Now I pack less and even use an old cu screen to put inside the cap on top of the load and it's been saving me quite a bit of bud. It's a pig but it don't consume like a pig. The caps are good for going out. Easy to pop one in on the go. Glad to see you like it @Beavis420 .

    Check yer manual for instruction.
    If the clear plastic thing were not there, material could escape the container, for one thing.
    Amount in chamber can vary, but in general you try to not let it be so loose as to swirl around in there.

    Meet my travel compadres, the three amigos:

    [​IMG]

    We've been sharing this hotel room. Julio complains about my snoring, but 2qan and Buddy are too vaped to care. We had a meeting yesterday to discuss the capsule tray. I PM'd @Ratchett our findings. Hope others will PM him as well.

    About that partial load in Mighty, it's that air can bypass a shifted partial load, diluting your hit. Need to evenly stabilize the load with a spacer. Can't give air a chance to scoot by.

    Am looking to pop my vaping cherry and have my eyes on the Mighty. When smoking blunts I use very small amounts of weed; does the bowl need to be filled to the brim, or will just a few pinches do? How often do you clean it? Are there any other vapes within the same price range or less that are (iyo) better?

    I make these to have options on load size.

    Hi everyone, new here. I bought a Mighty about 3 weeks ago and used it like 15-20 times. Absolutely loving it! It's my third vaporizer after the MFLB and the Solo and my favorite by far. This thread is a great help, thanks everyone for sharing your experiences with the Mighty.

    So I guess it's time to clean the vape for the first time. I opened the cooling unit and there's some sticky resin in it. I would like to save it but I'm not sure how. I bought 1 liter of ethanol. On the bottle it says ethanol 96%, camphor 0.1%. Now here's my question: Does this work? Is the camphor a problem? Most people seem to use 99% isoprop alcohol but that's not easy to get where I live...

    So will ethanol 96% + camphor 0.1% work or do you recommend against using it?
    Also, how long should I soak the parts of the cooling unit in it? About 30 minutes?

    Thanks for help and greetings from Switzerland (where only high cbd-cannabis is legal)

    Not sure on that particular ethanol, but like any solvent you really need to get every last part of the solvent out to be safe. If your not sure don't use it.

    A safer option, once the vape is all gunked up is to use the tamping tool to remove resin and place the resin on a small piece of parchment paper or a silicone pad. Then clean with ethanol. Look back a few pages on this thread for an example.

    The Mighty is indeed king of well...sort of portables, not pocketable but transportable.

    As for load size, I often use the dosing capsules. Above a fella showed us how he makes the capsules capacity smaller. Another way is to just pop the concentrate liquid pad over a less than full bowl. Works well.

    But, this is a full bowl of dried ground herb which was ground using the New Vape Fine Grinder. How small of a bowl do you want?

    My smallest one takes 0.05, the half size one takes about 0.1-0.12 depending on grind and how packed it is. I save a full capsule for special occasions.

    the mighty comes with a 'liquid pad', which can be used to reduce the volume of the chamber (you put it on top of the weed). I find that a full chamber is about .1 - .12g; using the liquid pad, the capacity's something like .05-.07g.

    I think you're doing the right thing by considering going straight to the mighty; it's a great vape. you probably already know it, but I think you'll be surprised at how efficient it is (and how tasty!).
