    Will a TV SV Evolution work on a TV Revolution unit?

    Yes, provided the battery is right. You want two RCR123As for SV. The big Ultra supply is 'right' for it, but heat shield while not necessary is nice. Evolution runs tend to be long, battery self heating is higher than with Revolution/DART.

    How can I clean the entire TV Evo unit? Should I use iso or can I just throw the whole thing in some boiling water?

    Yes, both are approved. Boiling first is recommended by me.

    You're welcome. By all means enjoy it, IMO it's an effective and interesting product.

    Because it works better that way.

    I think that my Evo was just a outside dry device, but last days I try it through water and I was really impressed by the clouds size that i can get because when I use it dry with flowers I get just 2 or 3 little nice puffs and nothing, with water I can get 4 big draws, 2 time by batteries. Clouds size is like my Xp on level 7, very big!

    I discover this device again nice day!

    I never got evenly vaporised herb with the Evo as the herb close to the top didn't seem to vape well. I know that others had success by shortening the bowl length by directly inserting a UFO mouthpiece, but I missed the boat on buying on of these. Has anyone used a filed down Dart loader for this purpose? If so, did it work well?

    Cheers

    So I timed this just perfect, I just finished reading/skimming this entire thread and I can see the mail truck down the street that I know is carrying the sv evo I just picked up as an impulse buy off eBay. Can't wait to try it out.

    Maybe. Well, no, yes of course you can use them, but I doubt they're better than the AWs. I've never tried these, but the AW 17670 is a proven strong contender, Evolution is a demanding power hog, you only need one or two and they're only a dollar or two more.

    I'd recommend the black ones instead.....

    Thanks OF! I thought that was a great deal since a charger was included (with the batteries). Is there a website that sells AW batteries and the compatible charger for a good price?

    That charger is ten bucks, IMO it's OK, I like the WF-188 better, the charger is 'nothing special' most any 18650 type charger will work since the battery itself is protected:
    http://www.amazon.com/Ultrafire-Cha...&qid=1377756147&sr=8-6&keywords=18650+charger

    Lighthound is my favorite battery source, 'the good stuff' is 11 bucks there, they also have chargers:

    Does ThermoVape still offer warranty support for the Evolution? My TV Evo doesn't seem to heat up anymore.

    EDIT: Nevermind. Already heard back from TV. That was quick.

    I've had one of these for a while, have used it a handful of times, always with frustration that leads me back to combusting my flowers :-/

    I get better use out of the MFLB, and am thinking of selling my TV Evo, since it is literally still 'like new', and has all the parts...

    Any idea on what it's worth/ what I can get for it?
    I know TV stopped making these now..

    tia!

    If you read through this thread or just try searching for "steps" posted by OF in this thread. @OF has posted the proper technique to use the evo. I combusted once in my evo then I rally concentrated on the 3 steps and got great results

    Pity you haven't had better results, it's a hard little rascal to get a leash on, but it is also a powerful performer in experienced hands. For sure not for everyone, but it's probably the only truly successful 'herb cart' out there?

    There is a loyal (but small) following I think that would welcome a chance to buy it on the classifieds. Like many such unique items, it's hard to put a value on it I think but find the right customer and I'd think above retail is realistic?

    Good luck selling it.....although I think if you got to using it seriously it'd about the last idea of selling it would be about the last you'd have on the matter.

    Good luck, no matter which way you go.

    hmmmmm......... it was just a thought since I never really got the hang of it.. always worked a little, but never satisfying enough.. I am def open to trying to figure it out more though.. maybe I was just being impatient.. I'm going to hold onto it for now and try your 3 steps @OF

    thanks!

    ok.. I tried the three step way.. I got small puffs out of it.. larger puffs when I rode the battery, like inhaling while turning the battery on and off.. but then it tasted sort of popcorny, which I always think means I'm combusting.. is that the case?

    from what I understand, the 3 steps are: preheat the core, load it up, and pull consecutive medium-fast hits.. am I missing something?

    Popcorn doesn't meant burned. Smoke means burned. What does the load look like? All yellow? Only at the bottom? How dry is your material?

    Thanks for your reply @Quetzalcoatl
    Material is relatively dry and dense.. (Obv ground up)
    Material post vape is a bit yellow but still on the greener side..
