    Thanks man, I did wonder about how it affected grip. I think I'd prefer the secure feel of that 1.5 edge, as long as it doesn't dig into the skin too much.

    The key with using milanna is

    1. Make sure u clean the metals often, squeaky clean
    2. Try to use a fully charged 18650 evert time
    3. Draw lightly and slowly until u feel the heat in ur mouth then drAw a little stronger
    4. 5-8 second pulls worked best for me

    Thanks for the shoutout :). The vtc5 batteries are totally worth it. No hesitation needed.

    I feel like you have the perfect personality for a Milaana. Great trial testing and objective analysis of variables and their effects on your experience. Exactly what is needed to bring the best out of this vape. I have friends that don't care to do this. They pack how they want to pack, rip hard, hot, don't stir, etc. and they still love it. But it's definitely fun to take it to that next level where every sesh becomes a science experiment. Really glad you managed to dial this thing in. Coulda missed out on a great vape you really enjoy. Great post!

    I've got two Milaanas and a microphone.....
    Alright, no mic, but a sweet addition to power the Mi along.
    Picked up @hippogriff 's OG Milaana and power adapter from the classifieds.
    The OG unit gets to temp faster and can can get hotter, but the Tubulator model heats more evenly through the load. The OG is better for the quick rips, and the Tubulator is best suited for session work, especially with the Power adaptor.
    The power adaptor is really pretty sweet. I can dial in the sweet spot in voltage delivery for each unit. The OG likes right about 4.20ish, what an 18650 puts out. And the newer model runs a tad cooler and it likes a bit more at about 4.5ish.
    Thought I would try both side by side and keep the favorite. Turns out the OG is my portable, and the Tubulator my home unit plugged in.

    I disagree. I think best operating mode is when the battery is slightly drained. Fully charged is pretty powerful and can provide slightly hot vapor quickly. I get better and smoother draws after a few sessions on the battery

    ohh! It was you who took it from me! -> Of course kidding :wave:

    I did not really have time to ask the price and I probably would not send it to my country :hmm: ...... I want one :love:... but I still have to save to be able to buy one of @Alan

    Enjoy you power milanna !!

    There is a tutorial video somewhere that @duff made on how to do it with a Dremel. Can't remember where he posted it tho.

    The joints are also of inconsistent quality and the ID is variable.

    Good point. This is true and therefore you may want to buy extra. Good thing is they are cheap enough and it never hurts to have some backups assuming you get lucky and they all work.

    Glass is a huge PITA w/o specialized tools, you'll wind up with little fissures and scallops that pop out along the cut line w/ the dremel method, which you can flame polish (ie blast it w a blowtorch for several minutes) to be barely ok, not a satisfying job.

    Finding a local glass guy yields way better results - I don't have one, so I've used Oregon Glass Blower, he takes requests and does awesome work, not cheap but very reasonable for perfect results.

    Lately I've been thinking about getting a slim stem from 420EDC and one of their top hats, and trying to fuse the top hat inside for the ultimate micro-dosing stem...

    OGB has been the source for my custom stuff as well. Mike will do anything you ask him to, and he knows about US joints...

    Yeah I never tried it myself but just putting it out there. On the 7th floor stems I had Ryan cut down I didn't have any issues with the edge or flame polishing.

    Robert told me that all Planetvape glass stems and connectors do not need to be cut down to fit RBT products.

    Oh hey, the Milaana mini stems at 420EDC have been moved to the clearance page, and marked down from $7.99 to $4.99

    Screens not included, these are on clearance due to having a wide inner diameter that we aren't able to find a compatible screen for. Think you have a solution, then buy them up!

    @Ed's TnT made this Koa stem w/14mm wong mp for my Milaana. Use it on all of my 18mm stem units.
    He has a lot of wood species to choose from.
