    For many of us, we don't bother with reclaim, we just dump it in iso. To me it's like scraping a pipe for resin, those days are over!

    So get specific here....your Mighty fell in a lake and you immediately scooped it out? Your arm went in the water up to your elbow? Or did you dive in head first? Was it on at the time? Inquiring minds want to know... :nod:

    I don’t mind the S&B plastic but scraping plastic for revaping doesn’t seem like the best thing to do? Maybe it depends on technique or it‘s generally no problem...

    Well, interesting story, I was sitting in a chair by the lakeshore where the water nearby was shallow, up north at a camp site, and the mighty was in my sweatshirt pocket (careless mistake). Suddenly it fell out into water that's 6 inches deep, to the bottom. It was underwater for about 1 second before I grabbed it out, I still remember seeing it laying there underwater, it looked like a watery grave for my dear friend.

    One thing that might of helped save it is that I had the mighty inside a thin plastic bag (the one it comes wrapped in when purchased). Now that's not a sealed bag, so this plastic its in is completely open at the top. But that must of helped delay its submerging in water because all the water has to enter from the top of this plastic bag, rather than an instant submerging without it. A fraction of a second of difference probably, that and my quick reaction helped minimize water damage.

    It was completely soaked anyhow. The display was temporarily warped, the vibration also temporarily didn't work, and the mighty did a weird grumbling noise for 10 minutes, while off. I held it over a camp fire to dry it off.

    But to my amazement, it never stopped functioning, and the vibration and display came back to normal an hour later. That incident was three months after purchase, now I'm nearly at 2 years with a still perfectly functioning mighty.

    After my first evening playing with my new Mighty and what can i say... You guys have been spot on, in fact i think perhaps you play it down a little :p

    Really glad I stomped up the cash and took the plunge, it is amazing! Lots more experimenting to be done but even the wife loves it!

    Just a noob question, is there a different sized concentrate pad for the capsules? Just realised the conc pads don't fit :(

    I clean out my CU with a plastic scraper (a cut down heavy guitar pick), then use it in my Vapcap. The CU does condense a lot of vapour quite quickly, which means it is probably overkill for my low temp usage. It has to be designed to cool down the hottest vapour that the Mighty can produce. So it's understandable that it would have some downsides for the lower end of the temperatures.

    This makes me want to break out my Mighty CU mod from @Ratchett since it significantly reduces the air patch length.

    I'm jealous!

    Mine as a similar story, someone grabbed a towel from the bottom of the stack, mighty was in my towel off to the side.....

    I reached for it as I saw it

    starting to slide, but I was too slow/far to catch it. A one second dip into the spa was all it took.

    Mine also vibrated until it died. It gave the Err004 for a few days, now nothing.

    RMA'ing it in the next day or two.....

    Well, I mostly use dosing capsules or even more commonly a liquid pad on top of my flower loads in the Mighty and have to say that I just don't get a lot of reclaim up there.....certainly less then using it native and having herb particles mix in with resin.

    I used to use the concentrate pads for half packs.. I did that foreveeerrr.. I would go through one concentrate pad every two to three weeks. When those dosing capsules came out, it was GREAT! I love these things man.

    The Mighty does take a beating. I never dropped it in water but I've dropped it dropped it several times on all kinds of surfaces. #2 split on me the last time it happened. However, vape was still on point from a useage standpoint. What I love about the Mighty is how easy it is. They did a great job with this device.


    I'm on my #3 right now and it doesn't seem to be getting up to temp as quickly as prior. I gotta time it out. If it's 1:30ish it should be fine. That's really my only real gripe about this device man. If you are a heavy user, a two year warranty simply isn't enough. Mine ends in March.

    For me, nothing to compare.

    This goo is full of high temps cannabinoids and sedate well. Clearly not as strong as concentrates but that's do the trick :whoa:

    The taste is not bad but it's clearly not fresh terpenes. It's more like hemp essential oil.

    I've never tried @Vitolo 's technic with volano bag, but it's look fun :brow:

    Anyone ever successfully RMA'd a device that was out of warranty? Only issue with mine is the battery life. Which is pretty bad now, after a few years of heavy use.

    If not, I'm considering opening it up and switching them out myself.

    As far as I know, some here with expirience said the batteries can not be changed by yourself, because S&B rigged them somehow. And I heard that changing batteries is about 80€ ... but only heard that.
    Talking about their service: they go way beyond what most are doing. They are excellent! My expirience with them (while in warranty) is outstanding. They should advertise it. if I had known before I would have bought it even sooner because in my eyes that more than justifies the steep price of the device. I mean, as a bonus, the whole thing kinda rocks.
    If I were you and the Mighty is apart from the batteries top, I'd let them change them. Should be worth it.

    I think contacting S&B for a quote on the batteries would be a good idea, you might get some bonus along with that service (cleaning, new housing(?)). Hey you don't know until you ask!

    On the other hand, there are a some here (and on Crafty thread) who have successfully changed their batteries. You need some soldering skills and a little savvy.
    First we know was @Vambo1980 with his Crafty. He logged well over 600 hours. Search his earlier posts in Crafty thread.

    for easiest cleaning thé cool element:
    Take off
    Turn upside down
    Open mouthpiece
    Hold bic lighter a couple inches over fine mesh screen and breathe in slowly
    You should not be sucking in the flames
    Just the heat
    Get wasted
    Take a nap
    Wake up to a clean element for the next month
    Fuck iso

    My serious concern and caution about using a flame is the chance of off-gassing that might occur from the plastic.
    I really don't want to be vaping plastic.
    I'm gonna continue to use the iso (99%), in a zip-lock bag, hung in hot water. All I take apart are the two halves of the c/u. This is just as easy, to my thinking. Fifteen minute soak and a rinse with clear water. C/u's have stayed new-looking for years.

    Rigged? I believe that they are soldered in. Don't know if that counts as rigging?

    Maybe, but it means for sure they are not meant to be changed and there could be an explanation about it.

    Their explanation is that it makes for better electrical contact and reduced resistance in the circuit, I believe. Also, with the Mighty there are two batteries in there so I presume there is some sort of balancer/load sharer circuit.

    Then there is the built in revenue stream for replacements which most of us aren't too pleased about.

    Any further revision/new model from S&B MUST have user replaceable batteries or I fear that they will fall to competitors who do offer this feature.

    Maybe it's a precaution to avoid stoners from attaching the wrong 18650. Exploding Mightys would be bad publicity.

    I think what @passenger might have been talking about is when somebody changed their Crafty battery, they came across a situation or circumstance where it appeared the device would not accept the new battery, or perhaps had lost some of it's 'electronic mind' while disconnected.
    Maybe it required hot swapping like a burglar alarm or modern car?!
    From memory I think the person was able to work around that problem, and get the device to accept the new battery and function again.
    Or once they used and charged it a few times it calibrated itself again.
    But I could be wrong on all counts!

    Either way, getting it done by S&B remains attractive at times.
    I want to check something myself, because somebody stated here before that S&B do not offer any repair services at all after your warranty expires.
    I went ahead and verified this with S&B EU to be correct, and it's something to bear in mind, but I now wonder,
    do they offer the battery changing or deep clean services after the warranty expires, or do these options cease also?
    Just wondering if I need to decide on a battery change before my warranty is out?

    Do you know if they will update the Firmware/software in the battery changing process? The new features are quite nice. I like the countdown vibration before shut off.

    I did actually ask if the new features of countdown vibration and boost could be beamed into my old Mighty at battery change or service time, and they said this would not be possible, but in some warranty circumstances they will replace your device with a new Mighty which would have all the new features on board.
    I'm not sure about charging or heating characteristics or other uses for the firmware or if they would or could change those?

    I just spoke to S&B US about this.
    Told them my Mighty was out of warranty and asked what my options were. (Getting about 1 session per charge at the moment)
    They told me my Mighty was one of the older ones and that it couldn't be worked on. Can't upgrade batteries or firmware.
    Only option they gave me was to trade mine in for a new one for 250 USD. AKA they'd give me 100 USD for it. Not sure what I'm going to do yet.

    Hope that helps!
