Have to carry 10 batteries with me 2 cores 2 charges.. make it the least portable
Yeah, I guess I should count myself lucky to have gotten the 6v AC adapter unit when they were around. My T1 will always have a place in my vape supplies, even if it's as a back up unit. Being able to run 3.7v T1, 6v T1, that should hopefully last a really long time if not being used often. I am still interested in finding a 3.7v PA plug, if that ever turns up, I still have not put much effort into finding that one. T1 will probably outlast most of my other portable vapes assuming I don't ruin the coil some how, so I am glad to have it on board. I also know there will be times when it's just not appropriate to have a delicate electronic portable on hand, so it will still have its place when needed. I do enjoy picking it up once in a while, just for a friendly hello. I don't know if I will be jumping on board for the first batch of new Cera units, but I am very curious to know more about them.
***I'm starting to wonder if I should pick up a few spare T1 parts (spring switch, O rings, etc...) assuming they are still going to be available, before they disappear. I would like to know I can repair my T1 long time down the road, if need be.
Jam ask pipes...doesn't he make that kind of stuff?
I sure hope there will still be replacement parts. My unit is only a few months old...
What do you mean Dreamerr??
I imagine parts should be available for a while, I was thinking more long term... getting a few extras while they are for sure around.
Isn't pipes the one that made the power supply alternatives to the thermovape ones? I am fairly sure he did which is why I said that. If he is so electronically inclined maybe he can make what you want.
Yes, you are right about Pipes, I already have the passthrough, I am hunting for the 3.7v power supply wall adapter, probably find it if I dig on line, assuming they exist.
Which is why I suggested him...he may have the know how to make one. I dunno but it is worth a pm if you want it that badly.
I'm still not sure what you are talking about... what am I supposed to be asking him for?
A 3.7 power supply...didn't he make a 6v one? If I am in the state of confusion that if fine ugh.
Wow my SV Evolution literally just stopped working. Shocked. What is this thing going to cost me to fix? Should I just roll that fee into a new vape?
Stopped working exactly around the time a new vape was announced, eh? How convenient....
Not to worry. First off, it's most likely not 'blown up' (most returned for that are really just fine, I asked....). Most likely problem is the switch has shifted, try resetting it. There are still a few switches with debris in them (old issue, new assembly technique as basically eliminated it).
Remove the switch (it pulls down from the battery side), remove the o-ring and cart. Then push the ring to the bottom of the hole, push the switch in as far as you can, put the cart back on (pushes the switch back a bit) and reassemble the battery.
If resetting the switch doesn't fix it (usually does), contact TV to see if you need to send in the core or switch (or both) for warranty service. Shipping to them is the only cost.
The little voices in my head tell me otherwise. It has to do with the election. And UFOs. Maybe your tinfoil hat isn't on as tight as mine?
...either that or I was just cracking a joke with a member; one which you seem to have taken out of context completely? Might want to consider those things before calling another member crazy.
Might even say the same to you (if that's what you're saying)??
I don't know what either one of us is saying at this point. Nice to meet you.

The ThermovapeT1 is a great unit. I like the atmosraw as well. Both solid, well built for the $$
I do not understand your post. The Thermovape T1 is designed for flowers, while the Atmosraw is known for total combustion of flower material. If you are able to provide information as to how to produce reliable vapors from the Raw, you should pass that information along to the Atmos thread, there are a lot of people that would love to know how to get even mediocre vapors from the Raw.
Welcome to the FC thread Vape-man, may you find your journey informative.
Gotta second Dogman on both counts. Welcome to the fun and games, great folks, good information.
I also agree, if you have some success and insights for RAW buy to pass on I can guarantee some good folks anxious to hear about it 'over there'. Lots of frustrated owners there it seems, I'm sure they'd love a successful model to follow.
Thank you for your valuable response. It has worked once or twice more since my last post, after having to activate the switch dozens of times until it finally worked. Now it does not seem to be working at all. I have reset the switch and no dice. However, since it did work at full power the two times that I mentioned, I have a feeling it is not the core, but is probably the switch. Will they just send me a switch to fix this flaw in their device? Can't something so simple be fixed onself?
You're very welcome, glad it seems to be helping sort this out. I agree it's looking like the switch could be at fault, not the core. Unfortunately end users can't service the switch assembly, it takes special tooling to assemble them. While I can't promise for TV (of course) I'm sure they will send you a new switch to try out, my guess is that will set it straight it has for a lot of folks (including me, I had a bad switch that drove me nuts until replaced). In my case I was at the shop and saw first hand the problem, a tiny piece of the plastic body got shaved off in the assembly process and got trapped inside. When it got under the contacts, problems happened, otherwise everything is fine if it's elsewhere. The assembly process was modified to prevent this. IMO sometimes it could still happen and there's no real way to inspect or test for it.
Anyway, contact them and ask for another switch, I'm sure they'll take a few minutes off from the new stuff to cover it.
Good luck. I'm sure everyone understands you'd rather be enjoying it than fighting it.....
I just purchased a Thermovape Evolution and I'm so disappointed with it that I've come here to rant.
The problem is that this vape simply doesn't work.
I think there's a design flaw with the chamber that holds the material you would like to vaporize. The suction from inhaling pulls the material away from heat source. This action prevents the material from reaching the required temperature to produce vapor. This design also allows the material to be sucked completely out of the chamber and spill once the cover is removed.
Maybe if they provide a screen that could secure the material near the heat source the device would produce vapor. My only other experience with vapes is the Volcano and they provide a screen that lowers onto the material that keeps it secure. And that produces excellent vapor.
Like I said, the Volcano is the only other vape I've used. I love it; but I now need a silent option. I thought the Thermovape would be the answer. It failed miserably.
I don't own one but have read this thread for the purpose of learning new vapes and to see which one was right for me. The T1 and evo have a learning curve. I can't guess how many pages back it is but there are instructions on how to use this vape. I can tell you that you are not doing it correctly and it does take some time to learn and then becomes automatic. As explained throughout a lot of these threads the thermovape line is like driving a stick shift and all the other vapes are automatics. If you were looking for an automatic you picked the wrong vape.
Start reading backwards and you will find it. Good luck and maybe someone might actually repost it for you.
Well, aside from possible switch failure, I am expecting my T1 body/battery chamber to last a while, and it's quite a nice driver for many of my other devices. It runs the D-9 stuff just fine w/adapter, any of my 510 carts that I have turned into hash hitters, I even have a 3.7v/510 threaded flashlight top (found at sabortouch) I can put on there, so it will be multipurpose as long as it keeps on working properly. I don't really have an expectation of how long my T1 cores will hold up since they are not heavily used. I don't know if they are subject to corrosion over time or anything. I suppose I can periodically clean them, just for the sake of doing so.
I found these AW ICR 123 protected Li-on 3.7v 750mah batteries (probably at lighthound) a while back, and 2 of those lets me run the T1 battery chamber at 7.4v if I need to (not with the T1 core!!) but I don't have any idea of how powerful/long lasting these will be, they are pretty small.
Even if they become obsolete, I am expecting my T1 to be around a long time.
