Why is this thread discontinued? Is the sublimator no longer available?
Cause there is another one about (2.0)
This is thread for the timer box version.
No longer available.
The newer thread is for the Monkey Controller units.
Ah, thanks guys.
Not just the timer box, this is also for us OG lamp dimmer types, haha.
So an update for my OG fam - I bought the Mighty yesterday and holy fuck is it brilliant.
As much as I have sentimental value for it, I've barely touched the sub in months - mostly because I've started being plagued by weird, uncomfortable side effects when I get too high; palpitations and the like - so I'm contemplating selling the sub and my bong and just using the Mighty and disposable oil vapes from here on out.
Thoughts on how I can best go about this?
Hey guys very new to this site I apologize if I'm am putting this in the wrong spot but am a little desperate I have a dab master xlr 2.0 and as you guessed it the mc has fucked off on me i haven't taken it apart yet thought I'd run some questions threw first i have found some posts on bypassing the mc and adding in a dimmer switch and a watt meter? I think I would like to go this route because I don't like the mc as it is the timer along with the short cord is enough to drive you crazy and now that is is broken I don't have much option is this simple to do? And or worth it as appose to buying a new v3 setup? The mc lights up and will show all 12 lights but absolutely no heat is being created at the head I have the titanium head of that means anything to anyone Any and all help would be appreciated as the sub is down and already miss it lol thanks guys hope to hear from you
If the controller lights up that means it has power.
If you have a volt meter check the output from the controller.
Also check the continuity of the heater head,as it may be the heater that is dead.
Either way you need to check these first to figure out which part is not working.
My mbox controller stopped working, I opened it to find a snapped pin on one side of the power jack plug to board connection. 1 minute of soldering and done. Hopefully you have something simple and similar and I reckon most anyone could attempt that type of repair. Easier than bypassing the box.
My power lead coming into the mbox snapped because you can see the plastic case was putting pressure on the power lead -jack connector solder joint as nothing lined up correctly lol. I Needed to file out the hole bigger to relieve pressure from the solder joint. I bet a lot of others are similar just depends whether the solder connections can withstand the pressure.
This is what happened to my MC, my solder points failed and the PCB ended up shorting.
Luckily I was within the warranty period - although I'd recommend reaching out to the Sublimator crew either way.
Hey man thanks for the reply I am going to get a volt meter today to check also how would I check the continuity of the heater? Everything looks ok also I pulled the box apart last night to find a chunk of soder rolling around inside when I popped it off I noticed the left wire soldered to the board was discolored and burnt looking with a few very gentle movements the contact broke off I am wondering if I can just resoder the wire back to the board thanks for all the help guys really appreciated
post a pic of mbox lets see whats broken? If it is you can clean and solder it back to the board.
yutube will have some helpful tutorials on how to use a multimeter for continuity, You are using ohms on the multimeter for that test.
I have the original sub v1 more the 4 years,
I cut the box 3 years ago,
I max out 26W,
I am looking for replacing the heating cartridge by myself,
but I can not figure witch one to get and from where,
@quitestoned @Detonator @lazylathe
can anyone share where to get it ??
thanks in advance and keep subbing
can anyone confirm that the cartridge is:
1/4 inch diameter and 1.5 inch length?
@quitestoned can you please share where to buy it from?
also do you have any pics of the heater assembly?
thanks in advance
Not sure of the size since I have never taken that end apart.
Now that you mention this and if it can be easily done, then why not buy a heater cartridge with a thermocouple and use a digital controller like an enail uses?
I may have to look into my old Sub again and see if I can breathe some new life into It!
I see some posts about the 2.0 Monkey Controller dying here, joined the club myself just this morning after 4 years of using it. I have been wanting to upgrade to the 3rd generation controller and heating element so am putting my XLR 2.0 Apollo kit up for sale. If anyone here wants to mix and match their OG Sublimator units with the look of the newer style stainless base PM me!
Sublimator XLR 2.0 Stainless Steel Apollo Kit. Purchased new from Planet Vape in 2014. Options include Planet Vape 12" glass tube (needs new whip), 45mm base ring, and safety cage for the heating element. Monkey controller repair project.
