    I imagine they will get to listing that stuff once the release of the Cera pre-order has happened, and things calm down a bit with that, and this is also a holiday weekend, so I would not expect a lot of work to be done for a few more days.

    Seems a logical assumption :p

    I'm just excited to get a T1 adapter, I'd love to use my revolution on the go with herbs as well :brow:

    i am a new owner of the thermovape t1. i personally think its a pretty damn good vape. i have a few other portables but the fact that you got a nice vape that can be used on the go without much of a process to shut down or clean out is pretty damn awesome. the bowl is made in a great place...no extra fidgeting around at all. I am currently on the thermovape site n scrolling thru threads trying to find out how to clean the ENTIRE unit. I am a bit unsure of the heater core being boiled as well so im really trying to make sure i got this understood before hurting this durable little device! if anyone has better tips on that please let me know i'd appreciate it!

    p.s. i noticed something stating that the t1 is no longer under warranty. Also noticed something about them no longer making parts for the t1. Does anyone know if this is true? Just wanted to know before i cant find anymore accessories for this thing....anyways. thanks all for your time and best of vaping experiences 2 u. peace

    First off, howdy, welcome to the fun, and congratulations.....I agree it's a great little product. Now out of production and about to be replaced by Cera, an improved "all ceramic" version of the T1 (basically).

    Yes, you can boil the entire core assembly. You need to unscrew it to do a good job, it's often pretty tight. Some guys use rubber gloves to screw it out, some of us fill the vee shaped area just under rim with a couple of rubber bands building it up enough so you can get your hand on it. Then unscrew the bowl and heater below it out of the upper body. Boil away, dry it out, screw it back together and you're good to go. A very thin film of vegetable oil (wipe a drop around with your finger tip, ring and top of the body) will keep it from sticking.

    You can probably try to boil it assembled, I doubt it would boil clean inside and it'd take 'forever' to dry. Don't boil the batter or switch, but everything else is fair game.

    Generally, you don't need to boil the bowl out since it's convection. Nothing normally gets below the floor plate, wiping it out with an ISO soaked cloth from time to time does it for me. The top cap tends to foul pretty quickly, some of us routinely put a fine mesh screen on top (inside the rim so it doesn't effect the seal) which helps here a lot. You can usually get a routine of loosening the lid and shaking or rolling (my favorite) to mix between hits as well, no need to fully open it up.

    T1 is still warrantied. And for $15 they will rebuild the heat core (the only part that goes out of warranty) for you after it's a year old (at least I think it's a year?). Not to worry there, the company just shut down production on several lines to concentrate on the Cera project. They retained plenty of service parts for all the models, or so they've said.

    Enjoy it, it's a great little product IMO. Also you might want to check out the Cera, it's pretty cool.

    Yes, they are no longer sold by ThermoVape. You may find some retailers that still have them, and ThermoVape has parts left specifically for repair purposes (and they will still rewind cores if one ever goes bad). ThermoVape is concentrating on its new Cera line now.

    Thanks for the info. I am looking to sell a massive TV collection and trying to figure a price. I just found recepts for most of them. Is about half of the original retail price seem fair?

    Wow really? I asked them several times if they would have T1's up on the site and they mentioned they would at reduced price. Now it seems they aren't available at all, ever. Very lame. I am highly considering selling my Revolution after getting the cartridge fixed because I am looking for something for herbs as well and it appears the T1 will not be an option. T'was never very satisfied with the dart anyways, always got better performance from my Purple Days. Oh well.

    peace fc fam! hope everyone is vaping well and keeping clouds in the forecast. i have been using and enjoying my thermovape for about a week. Although i have kept her clean i know its time for a boil session. I wanted to know if the thermo heater core can be boiled as well? or do i just wipe the parts around the heater core. thanks for your time. enjoy your weekend!

    You can unscrew the bowl (heat core) and boil it. The only parts you do NOT want to boil are the batteries and the switch (the thing with the spring).

    At first I thought I should boil it often but eventually I hardly ever did it and it worked just fine.

    I own a T1 since july and only boiled it twice. You can boil everything except the switch. I usually wipe the bowl and mouthpiece with ISO with a q-tip every 4-6 session...

    Hi Dank, welcome to the fun. IMO, boiling is a rare task but is OK to do. You now know the parts not to boil but unless your suspecting an air clog or something has gotten into the heater chamber, I see no real reason to boil.

    First, I want to thank everyone on this forum for their tremendous support of our company.

    I am sad to say that I am resigning from Thermo-Essence technologies. I have been under a great deal of stress, and I am now facing fundamental differences of opinion with my business partners, as well as just now beginning the process of going through a divorce. I simply need to refocus my efforts on taking care of myself.

    I have given everything I had for the mission of helping people never smoke again. I have given all of my time, and money, my passion, my education, everything I could give I have given. If I was, or our technology was ale to help just one of you, then it has been well worth the effort and sacrifice.

    I have now reached a time in my life when I simply have nothing more to give.

    I worked routinely 100 hours a week to insure uncompromising quality in our vaporizer, and did whatever it took to build our vaporizers here in America. The fact that I loved to smoke so much, made me focus on building vaporizers that rely on performance and durability not just as selling points, but as being absolutely fundamental to the product design and development.

    I truly hope and believe that the other owners of Thermo-essence will carry forward with that mission. It has always been a team effort, the sun does not rise and set on my shoulders. It is a company of very good people. Just now minus one.

    It has always been my goal to make an impact, not money (I never made any money of Thermo-essence). I wanted simply to help people, to create better technology, to engage the customer and deliver the products that they wanted. The companies I founded, or co-founded are not about me, they are about helping people and creating opportunity and prosperity in the process. All of us should do whatever we can to make a positive impact, Thermo-essence was my attempt to make that impact.

    Again, thank all of you for your support in that effort.

    Effective immediately I will no longer running or contributing my energy or time in to Thermo-Essence Technologies operations or products.

    I wish all of you the best, and hope for your continued success using a vaporizer as a smoking alternative.

    Sincerely,

    Noah Minskoff, MD

    First things first, best of luck with life's pressing realities. For my money you definitely succeeded in blazing new trails in the war against combustion. You've given us new tools and techniques as well as shifted the standards we expect.

    Godspeed and best wishes. And my personal gratitude for the changes you brought.

    Dr. Minskoff,

    It is my selfish wish that once your challenges are addressed, the door for you to return to TET is open should you so choose. If not may there be others that some day their lives will benefit from your genius.

    Dear ThermoVape,

    I have a T1 model and I am going to be getting new batteries. I found that Tenergy makes a 900mAh battery (RCR123A 3.0V 900 mAh) and I am wondering if that would work with the T1 which ships with 750 mAh. One thing I am worried about is that the product website states ""Modified Voltage to achieve 3.2v at full voltage; once loaded, cell voltage drops to 3.0v."

    THanks for any help you can provide.

    900mah won't work.

    I would get this
