    I got my 3rd official WISPR 2 that arrived from Ireland to my door step one day after Thanksgiving on Friday. I also received my 3rd replacement for my first WISPR in the form of a brand new WISPR 2 (in bubble wrap, not new in box).

    Now I have three, functioning units, WISPR 1, WISPR 2, WISPR 2.

    Now, onto my WISPR 2 impressions.
    First, the butane fill level went back to a crystal clear view. Very nice and much more useful. Operates ever so slightly quieter than my late model WISPR 1.

    Loaded up a new chamber and went to town. The intervals for heating and cycling seem normal, the warmer temperature is immediately felt and the results are a much more improved vape. The ABV changed color. (ABV > ABV) There is a very easy-to-detect change to the flavor that tells you "this is now done" in a less subtle manner which I rather enjoy. I have been using only Colibri butane in all my WISPR 2 units and I switched a month ago on my old WISPR 1. The operation has been better and the slight odor and taste is virtually gone.

    There are a few small design changes that can be seen from the outside. The small vent below the "lit chamber indicator" seems to help a lot with ignition, operation, and general cooling of the unit. I hope it works longer and gives myself and plenty of other happy Iolite WISPR users for a while.

    Any questions, let me know, boys and girls. I am very impressed and happy with the upgraded units.

    I have been a fan of the Iolite family of vapes from the very first I-Inhale, the name they first used for an Iolite. I love them. I, too, have 2 Iolites, and Wispr 1 & 2.

    I was pulled over this Fall while using a Wispr: the officer stood at the passenger-side open window, sniffed, and asked if I'd been smoking marijuana, and I truthfully answered, "No". He took another sniff of my car interior and said, "I guess not. Its a different smell." He took my license and registration, I guess, to see if I was wanted, and then he told me to go, and speed by him nevermore.

    I was glad I was wearing Depends.

    The third replacement of my green WISPR now 2 has failed. :(

    It leaks internally into the ignition chamber and will not hold a fill more than 20 minutes, tops.

    I am out of my warranty period and less than 60 days into this WISPR 2 and I am rather saddened by this. I had a small increase in the amount of butane the thing was using and really warmer than normal temps at the beginning which faded off quickly leading to a fast vape, way too fast. Only a few days to a week tops, kaput.

    Overall, third replacement for this model and fifth replacement needed.

    I bought a third black, WISPR 2 and use that on a daily basis. The blue WISPR 1 is no longer anywhere in the same league as far as performance from the WISPR 2 is gained.

    Portability, no down time, and when it works, it works perfectly. My ABV is consistent and the WISPR 2 made vaping an even more enjoyable experience. It is easy to clean and maintain. Butane is cheap and recharges faster than any battery powered unit. It also does not leave wires hanging around if I were to switch to a wired, electric unit.

    Also, I e-mailed Iolite about the very short jaunt I had with the new, replacement WISPR 2 and they informed me because the Green replacement WISPR 2 broke within 90 days, they will replace it, again, for free!

    That is customer service!!!! That is priceless.

    You guys want to know why I stick with this company is because each end-result (which should be most important) has made me happier than a pig rolling around in his own S#&T!

    i loved the portability of the iolite/wispr, but, because of altitude, certain spots where i'd want to use it rendered useless. if i live back east i'm sure not an issue. and by back east i mean USA. so i'm sad to report i've left butane vapes for good i'm afraid. i do wish i was cord - battery free however.

    I received an email from Ireland Oglesby and Butler stating my green replacement WISPR 2 was sent out on the 5th of February. Still awaiting its arrival.

    Oh and the new black WISPR 2 is working, but working very strangely. Already received another RMA confirmation for that unit and it will go back out whenever I get the green replacement back.

    Blue WISPR 1 still works, I dislike using it because the lower temperature setting.

    Customer service is working, but shipping costs are beginning to stack up and become quite a nuisance. I wish it was a bit more reliable. I see why so many folks have moved on, I just do not want to at this point.

    I really want to add one of these units to my collection as the "ultimate backup to all of my charger vapes".

    I can buy an Iolite or a WISPR 1 from my LHS. Should I pick up a WISPR 1 or order a WISPR 2 online?

    Is the 2 really that much better than the 1?

    Also, is the Iolite the precursor to the WISPR? Are they totally different? I looked into these things briefly and it appears the models are (in order of when they were made) Iolite -> WISPR -> WISPR2

    Am I best off buying the latest and greatest or will a cheaper WISPR1/Iolite suffice?

    There is lover for all but yes wispr2 is the final improvement in ease of use and higher extracting (210°C).

    I find unloading more simple with the wispr2 than OG iolite.

    Decided I need this.

    Vaping anywhere without the need of a charger?

    This is totally for me. I run through 6 MFLB batteries within 12-16 hours on a crazy day. Normally I burn through 4.

    Will post what I think about the WISPR2 when it comes in next week.

    I also got a free can of butane from the site I ordered it from.

    Iolite has their own butane? Should I trust it...lolololol

    @SirDarkened Did you try to Q-tip the trench of your mflb as a drop of efficiency is a sign of gooed rods and poor electrical contact?

    I keep it very clean actually. It works great. Eventually I know I'll need a replacement. (Using it drunk has um caused some combustion on more than one occassion)

    I cannot edit my post so I'm just going to post my first impressions in this one.

    Finally got my WISPR2 in the mail today ;).

    Stoked to try it out found it takes around .25 per pack. Not bad. we had 4 packs between a friend and I.

    The butane lasts so long! It still isn't out done after those 4 sessions.

    I love the look of it. The added ability to see how full it is with butane is nice.

    Mouthpiece gave it a bit of a plasticy taste for the first few sessions. Sort of went away? Will not be able to use it for another month or so but I am more than sure after many uses the taste will go away.

    The bowl gets HOT after use but the rubber doesn't allowing you to pack many in a row (it was 19 degrees outside the bowl cooled pretty fast).

    Its really nice for 2 people. I'm not sure about groups but it totally knocked us out.

    It turned on after the first click each time. Kind of awesome. Heats up REALLY fast. Didn't even realize it was done!

    Big con is the butane smell at first but I don't find that so horrible.

    Its not THAT loud but yeah. It makes noise. Not stealthy because of it.

    Stealth in looks but once you're using it don't expect to use it in quiet public places.

    Cleaning and packing are really easy. To pack you can use the solo stem inhale method but if it is an ultra fine grind expect a little piece or two in your mouth.

    Clean the bowl with Qtip and ISO. Same for metal bowl in mouthpiece. Takes maybe a minute or two.

    I haven't found the unit to run hot but then again we used it in freezing temperatures and boy did it preform!

    Was pleased with the ABV color after use. Not an ultra dark brown. Just a light brown.

    Overall, love this thing.

    No issues thus far but I'm only one day in. Will see about taste going away after many uses.

    The ultimate backup vape in my opinion. Might not be my primary go to but it will always be used as my other vapes always are dead :/ forgetting to charge the batteries is gone with this!

    Will highly recommend the WISPR2 to anyone who doesn't mind butane and is in need of a vape you can load up anywhere anytime and use without having to be stuck to an outlet.

    If there was a power outage the WISPR2 would last as long as you had butane so theoretically if you bought 100 cans of butane that would probably last you for life with this thing.

    I had multiple issues with my first wisprs. But the company sorted them out.

    Main reason I cant put the wispr down. No worry of combustion.

    Roomie just got the wispr 2 so I have been comparing it to the original. It's heat up time is quicker. He doesn't quite rock out as hard on the herb so can't compare sessions or butane length, but over all everything has been positive. This vape just has no learning curve or attention requirement.:)

    I tried using a Vaporfection ViVape 2 and hated it. I did not even let it turn off after the automatic cooling down period before I started vaping my WISPR 2!

    A new, black replacement WISPR 2 is on its way soon!

    Replacement no.1 for my third black WISPR 2 arrived late last week. I have not used it since the green WISPR 2 is vaping strong.

    @Viprdude while my WISPR has a solid place in my line up of portable vapes and is always at the ready, You seem to be rather dedicated to your WISPRs.

    How many vapes are actually represented in that signature ?

    Going through 6 to 9 units in 3 years doesn't in anyway make the wispr look attractive.

    I do like my WISPRs.

    I have one WISPR that was used 4-6 times a day for 2 1/2 years, ignites on the first click or two and runs quiet and smooth. It's Only used a handful of times a month now. I will replace it when it dies.

    But saying you HATED a vivape 2(not my favorite vape But ...) and still you keep replacing iolite wisprs every few months. This just doesn't sound right, the Vivape 2 has a much much better reputation for durability and is truly a more advanced medical type device I don't believe you can really compare the two.

    If you want other people to be as excited about the wispr as you are. Posting about yet another warranty replacement every 5-6 months will not help. Although the honesty about poor QC is great.
