    Lol! Right? I was so tickled when I discovered it. Sorry to say it’s a Mom mobile, a Honda minivan, nothing exciting. But it does seem like my car was specifically designed for stoners, its got a built-in microfridge and a DVD player, what more could you need?

    Although, it really does make you dream, what I really want is a space for my volcano in my car!!! I can see it now, driving down the highway with my balloon hanging out the window, flapping in the breeze :rofl:

    I am a very heavy user, but I was a recreational user in college, a few times a month as you say. I wish I had known about vaporizers then instead of smoking, I absolutely would’ve bought one. It really does make a difference over the long-term. And frankly, it just smells a lot better in general ;)

    On another note, does anyone know where to find a long handled version of the brush that comes with the volcano or the mighty? I’ve tried searching on the Internet but the search terms are too nonspecific and don’t pull up what I’m trying to find. I don’t need that exact brush, just the same kind of idea. I’ve been using kids painting brushes but I don’t like the idea of the synthetic brush fibers accidentally ending up in my lungs...

    I'm not sure how much of this thread you've read, but there are plenty of posts by people who own multiple vapes but the mighty's their favorite. I've 'only' owned 4 vapes, but, aside from vaping hard hash, which the mighty doesn't do well (it doesn't get hot enough), I only use the mighty since getting it a few years ago. if you're looking for 'the one' that you'll end up using for years, it's probably as good a choice as anything. definitely expensive, but I don't think you'd ever look back.

    if somebody comes out with an easy-to-use, no-stir, all-convection vape in the mighty's price range, my opinion might change, but it doesn't seem to have happened yet (from what I can tell, it's a huge engineering challenge).

    Can the Mighty somehow be both the best device I own and the one I use the least?

    Maybe so...

    @nenmayk , great that you are around here yet! But what do you think about another batch of the 2qan? Is there still hope? Maybe just a special FC collective order?

    Ok, here’s an odd one: my mighty is giving me headaches. If I take the same dosing capsule and use it in the volcano, no problem. But if I do it in the mighty, bad headache by the end of every capsule. I vape at 410 degrees, but I’m at 446 in the volcano, so I don’t think it’s the temperature. This is bad enough that I’ll get rid of the mighty if I can’t figure the problem out. Thoughts?

    I experienced something approaching nausea sipping on the stock plastic straw in the first week of use ( less than two months ago). Ive switched to a glass CU replacement but im not a fan of the harshness at the highest temps. No complaints on the effect and convenience, but i find myself dropping my temps looking for a sweet spot. Ive used the capsules recently and there is no change in the harshness im trying to alleviate.

    Have you tried the glass mouthpieces from PIU? Flavor is amazing!

    @arthritisbites I highly recommend, might help with the headaches.

    Thanks for PIU tip, was ogling a similar piece on Sneaky Pete's. I'll give it a chance!

    Tough one, never heard that - maybe strain related? or to dense vapor with the mighty vs volcano, maybe inhale some extra ambient air after drawing with the mighty...or try staying at 390...

    I think I figured it out, and I feel a little dumb. I was vaping them too long and whatever I was getting at the end of the session is the problem. However, previously after sessions the dosing capsules were basically clean, I could just brush them out, but when I took these out they had a little brown sticky stuff around the edge of the outside of the dosing capsule lid. I’m assuming that means I’m using too much kief? Or is that normal?

    just to check - how long since last cleaning the cooling unit?
    Maybe it's related to a different environment when using the mighty?

    Turned out I was just sensitive to whatever the vape equivalent of torching the bowl is :doh: But good reminder to keep an eye on cooling unit. How often do you actually clean yours? It’s not my daily driver, so I assume it will be a while before I have to take it apart.

    i got my mighty today. yay!

    5 minutes later i was vaping. i should have powered up the batteries a bit more but i didn't read that until after i vaped a bunch through it.

    i'm pretty happy with it. i've hit it with .05, .075 and .1. . next, i try it with shatter and weed.

    thanks for all the good info here. i mostly vape concentrates but i'm going to put some bud back in my days. wake and bake with shatter means lots of coffee or a nap.

    Why do you prefer without it out of curiosity? I was just getting ready to buy one...

    I advise to buy a stand, the convenience factor outweigh the cons.

    Mighty just looks happy when it stands up.
    I find a stand is indispensable when using Mighty with a whip tube (hookah style), or when using tubing to connect to a water piece. Stand is also very helpful at filling time.

    Hey vape enthusiasts, I’m about to press the order button on a Mighy from PIU, is there anything else I should buy while I am ordering to go along w the Mighty?
    Thank you!
