    My use is all flower, so maybe not exactly analogous, but...
    Especially for out of house use, I love the capsules and use an 8-count magazine, of which I have two. Plenty of capsules, so when thorough cleaning is needed I can do a lot at same time in small iso soak. As you've read, the bowl stays real clean- but there again I don't use concentrates.

    You're either going to fill the bowl or a capsule, so I don't see that it's a huge inconvenience, and again, you can fill a bunch in one sitting (fill 8 in <10 minutes while doing a sesh) rather than filling only 1 chamber for every use. I fill using the magazine lid-as-funnel, the way it was designed.

    do you guys really think filling the capsules is a hassle?
    just grind it in the S&B grinder and fill the herb in the top part of the grinder.
    than just grab the both parts of the capsules and shovel it in.
    I can fill 2 caps in 10sec

    filling the hopper is harder.

    I don’t find filling the capsules tough at all. Occasionally I have a bit of a tough time separating the capsules. But that’s becoming easier with use

    The 8 cap magazine has a cap filling aid in the middle, but the normal filling aid works for caps too.
    I would call it a tie for loading between caps/no caps due to the filling aid - it's more the unloading part that makes the caps more convenient, no mess, no traces ;)
    Going around the inside of the cap lids with the brush handle to widen it just a hair helps for opening...

    Even using Ratchett's tool, it takes me at least ten minutes to fill 8 cartridges, between grinding, putting the caps in the tool, spreading the herb into the caps, popping the caps out, putting on the lids, cleaning off the residual herb from the tool. Big pain in the ass, though convenience on the back end helps make up for it.

    And that's not counting times when the caps get bendy (the metal is super-soft) and hard to take apart.

    I can fill the bowl native-style much faster. Much much faster. The caps are great....but not without their issues. :2c:

    Well have u accounted the time it takes to fill the filling aid?
    I don't think that the tray makes it faster - filling caps in a bowl with grind herb goes much quicker imo
    btw i've even reshaped a stomped on cap with the cleaning brush handle, so after 1 year i havent't disposed one cap

    When I feel lazier I keep a capsule base on the bowl and microdose adding just a pinch of weed at a time. Then I add up on it over and over. I will never ever do a naked bowl, it's just gross now that I tasted the capsules convenience and almost no need to ever deal anymore with Iso on the Mighty itself and not just the cooling unit.

    All this capsule talk just proves how great the Mighty is :) You want to pre-fill capsules before leaving the house? Fine. You want to just pack the damn bowl, old school? Go for it. Imagine if the Mighty were capsule only, like the Ghost MV1? If they drop and lose their crucible caps it's over, lol

    But I do have a capsule question. Has anyone discovered black residue on the side bowl area due to capsules? Or perhaps scratching of the bowl? Wondering if the metal on metal contact could be the culprit...

    I’ve never tried the bowl technique. I’ll give it a shot next time I’m capsule-inclined.
    No question it’s a versatile vape, not least because it’s so simple, consistent, and effective no matter what approach you use.

    You use the liquid pad in the bowl at all? Mine has scratches ever since I started using them for micro doses and when I use my water pipe adapter I jam a liquid pad in it instead of a SS screen to secure and hold herb down when I use it upside down and the inside walls of the adapter always gets tons of residue when I do that.

    I do, and that may very well be the reason; thanks for bringing that to my attention!

    I just came in here to say that I’ve been using my Mighty these last two days with the delta rubber adapter to my hydra tube and holy shit, that thing is incredible.

    For some reason my Cloud isn’t performing like it used to, so I’ve been looking for other vapes. So far, the Mighty is pretty dang amazing with the hydra tube. Loved the Mighty before. But now really love the Mighty :-)

    Hey what are you tips or habits for changing the capsules?

    Currently after I finish a capsule I would literally open my mighty and drop the capsule on the ground and put the next bowl in and 20 secs later I would pick up the first capsule. Is there a more efficient way? Don't want to put it back in the magazine since it's like burning
    Hot.

    Also do you guys number your magazine? I always put a used on back in the capsule and I lose track which are new.

    You got it bro, that's it. Maybe not on the ground, though, I always find a surface nearby. But the ground works!

    Me too. I keep spent capsules in a little section of my smell proof bag. But a second capsule dispenser with some colored tape or something could help keep organized...

    I actually have no use for the capsules, a while back I bought these baskets (on the right):
    [​IMG]

    They cost only $2 for 4 from my hemp store.

    Initially I just wanted extra protection for my oven and to not have to clean it with a brush after every single use (as I normally would), I saw how my friends Mighty's oven was so caked in grime and corroded. But I found I never need to clean my oven at all, or replace the bottom screen in it.

    Later I found I can use these baskets to pre-pack bowls and seal them in a 1g baggy for transporting.

    I tend change the capsule whenever no more vape is coming out!
    But seriously,
    If you look closely the magazine has little embossed numbers on it. For me they are all but worthless 'cause my eyes ain't so good.
    I often put only 7 (or less) capsules in the magazine, so there's always one empty space (or a grouping of empty spaces). I take loaded caps from the first available that's clockwise from the empty space(s), and replace spent caps at the other end of the line.
    My bigger problem is knowing when I'm on my last one.

    re numbering capsules

    ive used narrow pliers (needle-nose)
    - squeezed quite tightly ( ..and carefully lol)
    on *rim* of lid to leave one or two small grip marks
    that can now be used to separate 3 strains
    no mark - one mark - two marks

    also filed tops to make them shiny and easy to tell apart
    from duller bottoms of upside-down used capsules

    This chart seems a little off, no? (180+356, 190= 374)

    I have used the capsules with my Mighty for a while and liked them but I'm back to native with a liquid pad on top.

    Just me, but a bowl is a bowl and just like a beautiful Meerschaum pipe, I consider the darkening of the bowl to be a patina of good use. :-)

    I tried hot blasting my air path with a volcano turned up full and the Mighty up full with the screen removed (4 second blasts).
    The easyvalve chamber seals well to mighty bowl and blows through at a medium rate. I didn't get to see much debris fly out, but after a thorough cleaning and brushing out the bottom screen etc. my air flow did indeed appear to improve a little!

    Like @Baron23 ,I decided to try going back to putting loads under the pad, and while cold testing, I think I could feel more draw restriction in an empty capsule, than in a liquid pad.
    The pad keeps things nice and tidy too for now, but the capsules have been too great for me to go without for long!

    Do you remove your CU screen Baron, or leave it in for the odd big bowl?

    Good choice, and welcome to the future. The Mighty is a luxury vape system, and rock solid in engineering. My Mighty actually fell into a lake and it still worked after I retrieved it quickly and dried it off.

    Impressive, and not sure how much is left in your warranty, but it's probably 0 months now.

    I never could get into those capsules, convenient yes but I just never got the vapour I required out of them compared to direct loading. Maybe because they couldn't hold as much? Always thinner wispier clouds even on high temp, but my grind probably wasn't fine enough.

    Nothing like stuffing that chamber full to the tits and ripping!

    Does anyone preheat the oven and then insert your plant into the chamber? I think we're supposed to.
