    I thought the black tubes were just longer for XL stuff, but if they are wider too than maybe. The green and purple ones are too narrow for sure.
    I got a very small black one from them once, I think it protected a cap in the mail, and I sometimes use that if I think I may only need one or 2 fillups. It is squeeze to open, tho, so a little risky.

    I noticed you said "black fat" so there may well be tubes I haven't seen.

    Ha I've done it that way at times. Great minds think alike.

    I don't use suck method with Milaana anymore. I flick or shake tube to loosen and separate material, pop cap off with thumb, hold over stem and tap tube so it sprinkles out. Light tamp with finger. Good to go. Can be done below the waste out of sight in seconds, or comfortably on the couch without any bending over.

    All personal preference :)

    Mist Vaporizer sells little glass vials with corks that are sized to fit in a battery case just like the Milaana stem. I actually have a 3D printed batt case that keeps em upright by loading from the top with a little slide door. I like keeping a stem in there with a goal of herb for a dugout effect (though yeah Mi stem too wide so you gotta pour to load). I actually still use a film cannister the most though bc it's easiest, but would like something nicer... Have two aluminum containers I was gonna glue together for a double container, but glass would be nicer still... I should probably try some JYARZ, need a sale!

    I love doob tubes for loading Mi stems, but I like them clear so I can see the herb flow into stem. Much neater and less wasteful. Also lets me see how much I have left. About 3/4 of a tube gets me through most days.

    I dry and break up first, using a small metal funnel to load, as well as grind up. Once I dry herb under lamp, I don't need a grinder, just use a small tool breaks up (pulverizes) herb as it falls through mini funnel into tube. This method preps herb just the way I like it, and is pretty fast.

    Same here, I have been using a delta3d GH funnel to fill my tube that way. 3/4 lasts me a week or more lol.

    Herb prep is everything, even though Mi will handle just about any state. I can throw a mini nug it, dry on the first airy hit, then go in and stir a bit. There is no getting around it, stirring gets me some sick efficient sessions (image how many doob tubes I'd go through smoking).

    If I prep right, tamp right, stir right, button right, I can milk a load for lots and lots of hits, once the Mi gets heat soaked. I like the wood stem for this, becomes part of the body as far as heat goes, very nice "tasty smooth" effect.

    The. Milaana. is. here. :)
    I am in the office right now, but the parcel is sitting right next to me.
    I CANNOT WAIT FOR HOME TIME.
    Unfortunately, I will have to charge the batteries first. But today is the day!

    Well, so much for photos (at least for today). My iPhone just got killed by an employee of mine.
    He accidentially swiped it into one of our machines. One of those machines that do not like to give things back... It's shreddered in thousand pieces.
    I would normally go nuts, but I have a Milaana next to me, waiting to get tested. I am the most peaceful boss that an employee can have today. Shall it rain shit - I am happy.

    Damn. Do you create those "demotivational memes" in your spare time? ;) However, I still have some (nearly) charged spare batteries left from my Arizer Air. They are the same type, so it should not take that long, I hope. If you do not see or read me again today, then the Milaana sent me to outer space. I will report in any case.

    Huh. Just had my first session with the new darling. I am impressed. And baked.
    Really. This vape is not like any vape that I have owned before. It is a very special device, that's for sure!
    I cannot even say that it is the best vape that I have ever had. At least not yet. (But I can imagine that I will say so soon)
    If the Milaana is a vaporizer, then I have never used a vaporizer before. It's like a new beginning.

    Where to start?
    First of all:
    Everything was packed safely and secure. And it was here very fast, given that there was an ocean and our Customs authorities in between.
    Big thanks to @cannabis.pro for having done a great job here and for the free doobie tube! Very much appreciated! My absolute recommendation for http://420edc.com!

    Secondly:
    I don't like Butternut. I am so glad that I ordered an additional Walnut version. Just a question of taste, of course. The device itself is very nice and well made. It is lighter in weight than I expected. Great and valuable unit.

    Thirdly:
    I packed the (short) stem loosely with some coarse ground AK-47 that I had around and was (nicely) surprised that also small amounts are doable and that I do not have to pack 0.3gr in it for every session. One point on the checklist.

    Pressed the button for 5 seconds, slowly started to inhale, kept pressing the button for further 5 seconds and then pulsed it 3 or 4 times during the last 5 seconds. I received a real good and dense hit, not harsh at all, not hot, with good flavour (not as good as the first hits from my Vapcap, but I guess I will find that hotspot here too). And that hit left me speechless for 5 minutes. I could not believe how baked I was. Instantly. Please mind that I smoke/vape around 1-2gr each and every day. I wake and bake. It's not that easy to get me baked instantly. But it worked. Impressed. One more point on the checklist.

    I had to stir. I normally hate stirring. But with the Milaana, it somehow was completely okay for me. I don't know why, maybe because it is so hassle-free to do it, but I really did not care.

    Did some more sessions, while playing with the power button, and liked each of them very much. This is not a vaporizer for beginners. This is really something for connoisseurs and people who love "to work" with their device. It has nothing to do with all those "choose a setting and go" devices. But I already feel now, after just one bowl, that I love this sweetheart. I cannot imagine this being my only vape, but the Milaana is exactly what I was seeking for "at home usage".

    Fourthly:
    Thank you all! I would never have discovered this awesome vape without you guys & gals.
    I would never have bought it without all your valuable input in this thread and the videos that some of you have produced.
    You made my world a good bit better. One Love!
    I dedicate the next bowls to you all. Please excuse me now - I hear the Milaana crying for me! ;)

    @Dynavaper Lmao. Not trying to be negative but when I got mine my batteries were dead and it took a long ass time to charge them. I've been there and it sucked. Interestingly when I use my Vapcap I don't really enjoy the taste much. Maybe I heat it too long? If you're getting a hotspot chances are you're inhaling too hard. Since it has such open airflow, if you want good taste hit it really slow as soon as you feel some heat let go. You won't get a big cloud but the taste will be out of this world. Once you've taken that it you can continue to feather the button, don't hold too long and you should keep getting good taste. If you heat it too long and then inhale really hard, it makes it where you can get a hotspot right in the middle of the load. I found that inhaling really slowly throughout the whole hit leaves the load evenly vaped. When I inhale hard I get a hotspot in the middle of the load. Keep at it, you'll get it. It's always nice experimenting with a new vape anyways lol.

    4 bowls (or: stems) later... I am in love. I cannot feel my feet any longer. Who cares? Feet are for people trying to walk. And I won't move for quite some time. What a gorgeous thing that Milaana is. I am sooooo baked. Soooooo baked. It's incredible. I love that thing. So smooth and yet so powerful. Gosh!

    @Vapetrees: I closely followed your instructions and they are the bomb! You rock, thank you!

    Boy, am I baked.

    Enjoy, enjoy! It's pretty cool to have full control of the vapor. It's pretty cool and I have never experienced that with any vape. You'll learn as you go.

    Total control is so cool that once you start to really get into, it just keeps getting better. I'm in awe of this vape now that I've been building a few custom bodies, and getting a real good look at Mi and what she can do, I realize what great engineering is behind this product.

    I just got a sweet white maple "back up" / "work horse", whatever you want to label it. I mean this bad boy is clear, very sweet (thanks @cannabis.pro ), and it goes so nice with Alan's maple stems (of which I have about a half dozen). The real, real, reason I just bought this vape, is that it allows me to tinker with the my old Mi's, putting them into new bodies, but if shit goes wrong in the learning process, I have a brand spanking new, latest Mi version, totally tweaked, factory superstar to fall back on - so I can proceed with a "who cares" attitude. That's not really VAS, but CVAS (custom vape acquisition syndrome) protection.

    Welcome to the team, bro! :wave:
    Good to have you and nice reading about your initial experiences.
    This is just the start and as @Bravesst said: It's only getting better!


    That's some GREAT wood. Have a similar one in ironwood or Leadwood. LOVE IT! :)

    I'm trying to get my hands on some Ironwood for a custom Milaana body. Supposed to be dense and super heat resistant, but not sure how it is to work with. Maple, walnut, cherry, very nice to work with. An Ironwood Mi --- Iron Maiden

    So stoked to see all the new "M" crowd!!! I want to join the "Splinter" group now!!! Had mine,Milaana, for about 2 months now and its getting better all the time.

    Are those different stems or one?? the original glass RBT stem fits inside??? What about without the glass stem??? Increased cooling with the glass/wood combo??? Its a gong too OMG!!! I know this is a lot to digest but inquiring minds want to know???
