    This here will get you two normal cartridges as well as the Hercules which can be used for extracts as well as flowers. The 3.7v Hercules should be out soon as well and will do flowers much better than the 7.4v Hercules which is included in the following package for $259.99

    Can anyone over here tell me how to post a pic to the forum of
    the bag of dorito nacho fromage I got from Canada.

    Maybe it's an iPad thing, I don't see any way to do it.

    I'd say don't think of minutes, think of sessions. A single charge will be one or two average sessions (IME)

    Also...wootze wins the award for the best WTF post on this thread yet.

    I got my persei and it was awesome for the few hours I got to use it. The hammer that came with my bender is apparently defective because it shorted out both my tops and damn near fried one of my batteries! The shrink wrap on it shrunk more cuz it got so hot in SECONDS! I was getting ready to use the bender for the first time. I'm so bummed. I waited all this time and bam it breaks. What should I do? Wiill I have to pay for return shipping? This sucks so bad. I did get some nice wax loaded in a 5.0 cart and was getting nice hits. I never expected this thing to break within hours. :(

    Edit- The heating element on my herc is off center. Anyone else have this problem? I haven't boiled it yet so I don't know what will happen there. It's tight and there is no holes.

    One of my mini hammers were slightly crooked in one of my Hercs. No big deal as long as the tanks drop in and line up properly.

    Edit: Even though I'm down one Hercules (sending it out for repair), my second one is quickly becoming the first thing I reach for when wanting a dab. It literally delivers as big a hit as my nail and dome, only tastier and without a torch mimicing the sound of a 747 taking off. G, this thing friggin' rocks! :science:

    I don't know Planet Vape's policy, but G has said for those who purchased it through D9's site to go ahead and use them until there's a problem.

    So why are people boiling their Herculi?

    It seems like it's dissolving the heater glue/sealant.

    But you got lots of char-taste right? Did it combust?

    Here's Bob's pics from a few pages back of the VSS mod and the easiest method I've found to do this is to cut a proper sized chunk of the volcano sponge and stick something slightly thicker than your heating element through the middle of the volcano sponge. Leave the object through the center of the sponge and insert it through the bottom of the top half of the cartridge sleeve while it's unscrewed. Then line your object up with the ceramic rod, screw the two ends together and make sure your object is touching the rod by pushing gently on it. Then I used an empty tank and a pair of tweezers to gently force the sponge down off of my object and over top of the heating element. Continue to do so until your oil tank sits comfortable underneath the top of the lip by a mm or two. Beware of stainless splinters... they suck... Good luck!

    Nopers. Tasty toad.

    U can combust if u r determined to.... What I've got....

    > remove erl tank
    > pack small ball of fresh dank right in top of tube. Didnt push it down near heater. Dank pill the size of 81mg aspirin
    > 20 devastating hits, my old ass got completely sideways. dank's still green.

    Now this does not taste as good as all glass...yet, prolly will improve. And real hot vapor @ 6 V.

    But...it will do exactly what I want. QUICK hits @ work.
    It has the power to produce insane clouds and quick med lock, unlike any variant of TV or LB (4 me, at least)
    AND...it did it with a tiny bud. I can't be fucking with erl when I'm 30 ft in the air on jack scaffold.

    The solo tastes better and cannot combust but is not the implement for a couple of hits on the go. Solo clouds are anemic compared to hercules. Now YMMV...combustion is inevitable if u pack fine grind down around the heater, until u can dial exact heat w/ iris.

    Technique...dank pill as per above.
    6V of LiPo
    Hold button and puff till u can see vapor.
    Hold button and lung hit.
    I can somehow sense when to let up on heat.
    Keep pulling as long as u can w/o heat.

    This device is the total shit.

    The Persei and Cera are two different animals, I feel. The Cera is a portable oil and herb vape. The Persei is more a swiss army knife of sorts. Does oil and herb, multiple voltages, glass on glass herb chamber, herb iron attachment, different OHM carts, water filtration on the way, variable voltage top as well, etc.

    Edit: Great news about my Hercules' "broken heater". Turns out that the connector and the cart weren't fully threading due to the cart being stuck a bit too high up in the outer shell. I managed to pop the cart out from the shell and reassembled everything. Pressed the button and boom -instant vapor. Boy, am I glad that I didn't rush to send it out for servicing. Now it looks like the only thing needing to be replaced will be my outer shell due to slight peeling (which I now know was due to a hot iso bath) and free spinning ring. I shall celebrate with more Hercules rips to the dome! :science:

    Been experimenting a little with mine as well, not very happy with the amount of concentrate I feel I've wasted. I think I've fried it a bit by using the 7.4 with the Herc and oil, but I did get a few good draws, just a ways to go though still technique wise. I just tried some herb with a small screen and whatever oil is now at the bottom of the mini hammer, seems like I did get a very nice medicated effect although I didn't really get a lot of density, so will go back at it tonight and report later.

    Also, I was frustrated when reading the manual to realize I didn't have a 2.4 cart with the base kit. I appreciate the color coding in the user manual, but why wouldn't they include a cart so you can compare the difference? It seems to make more sense to include one 2.4 and one of the 5 ohms. I was bummed to receive mine and realize they hadn't read my note to call me to explain what other options I might need before shipping my order, but now that it is here I need to order more basic accessories and pay for more shipping. Is there something I'm missing?

    So after my first 24 hours with the Hercules and an eighth of errl...

    I still have yet to get the super dense hits some people speak of and I too feel like I went through far too much errl for the amount of vapor which was produced... I guess I just have to experiment more with my technique and wait for the fixes to come, but the taste is amazing and the Hercules gets me medicated very quickly, without any fire or mess! This thing with 2 sets of batteries and 4 quarter gram tanks is perfect for daily outings I must say!

    I'm only averaging 8 to 12 decent sized hits per tank/0.25-0.3g of errl and I'm charging the AW IMR's after every 2nd tank.

    Has anyone tried a third or fourth tank on one charge?

    Does anyone have any tips for getting bigger rips?

    Also it's pretty funny to note that this thread hasn't updated much since people have all been getting their Hercs lol!

    Here's the technique I've been using and it's been getting me hits just as big as my nail and dome.

    I load a nice dabs worth (maybe 0.1) into a tank and heat it with a lighter to prime it a bit. Next, I drop the tank in, screw the mouthpiece on, and then start pressing the button. I keep holding it until I hear a sizzling sound. As soon as I hear that sizzle, I begin pulling slowly and steadily for 30sec to a minute (basically until I can't anymore) - ALL WHILE REMAINING TO HOLD DOWN THE BUTTON! The result is a massive cloud that rivals a fat dab off of a TI nail - ONLY BETTER TASTING! After I stop coughing, I usually take a couple of cool down puffs and then load the tank back up for Round 2. I don't use the Hercules as a sipper, I use it as a nail cart. I load each tank with a nice dab and just knock them out one at a time. About three to four tanks in a session and I'm good for a bit. I'm literally reaching for my Hercules more than my rig. Try it out and let us know how it works out for you! :ko:

    Edit: I would say the dabs I've been packing have been between 0.05 and 0.1.
