    Well after breaking the cloud (fell of my desk). I think I need to start this thread :rockon: since its been fixed

    I know im not the only one to break this vape. One fall could end its life. What keeps your cloud ticking? Im thinking I should always keep it on the floor in some sort of box. So after each hit it goes to the box. Figured it cant fall if its already on the floor.

    Nice Thread!

    Tip#1 - Wrap your cords!
    Tripping over a cord must be a common way to cause your Vaporizer to go tumbling. How to fix that? Give its power cord a few wraps around the nearest table leg. It won't stop someone from tripping over it, but it will stop your vape from flying/falling.

    Tip#2 - Solo-centric
    The Solo, complete with stem, is quite tall and if one were to catch that stem on a sleeve or bump while reaching for something, that would result in a tip over. Would the stem break, probably not. If the stem hit something on the way down and was already hot, then maybe. Since the Solo can work and isn't impacted by being used right side up, upside down, or sideways, simply lay the solo on her side when there's a brief break in your session or always if there's an active group of vapers around. The Solo is built like a tank, yes, but why take chances....

    Vape On! (Don't Break-On!) :rockon:

    As far as I can tell my E Nano is pretty indestructible.

    I can't begin to count how many times I have tripped over the Plenty's cord and hearing it crash down onto the hard floor. Worst damage yet is a cracked, but still functional cart housing. Otherwise this can take serious abuse and countless falls from 3-4 feet.

    I just got the Hammer, but believe it will have the same tough appeal to it (the stems might not last as long).

    True.

    That being said, my Persei also took a spill down a flight of stairs once...

    LOL! (great thread)

    Ritual and Habit are my best offerings of advice. Always know where your shit is, and always put it where it belongs.

    Reminds me of a saying in aviation: We build aircraft to fly... not to crash.

    You should also avoid trying this ;)

    Salutations MG23,

    Indeed, the heat-exchanger assembly in itself should effectively prove to be sturdy and durable but the way both halves are joined together, at the middle belt, euh... Quite frankly i'd avoid betting on those 2 little plastic posts which are expected to take such punishment and never fail under the transformer's weight; plus, in a version 2.1 the thermocouple would detach should its holding screw loosen up - which was corrected in version 2.2 i shall add.

    Well, we both know how a VapeXhale Cloud would compare at this sort of competition in any case!!

    :peace:

    @Egzoset: In addition to the connections being better in the 2.2 version, didn't you also state that the transformer used was lighter?
    i.e. "lighter high-frequency switching-mode module" in the 2.2 vs. "heavy ferro-magnetic transformer" used in the 2.1?

    Apparently they only had a little room for improvement over 10 years, eh?

    Hi again MG23,

    Absolutely, and in all fairness i actually need to mention that the picture posted by CheeseSandwich (on Nov 26, 2013) may have seemed somewhat blurred back then but yet it was detailed enough for me to still remember today that i noticed some major reduction in size and hence v2.2 can be expected to have a much lighter transformer Inside. So yes, thank you for providing an opportunity to clarify!

    :tup:

    I don't wish to derail but my intuition says power consumption of the v2.2 board simply went sufficiently low to use a regular 60 Hz unit that can be made a lot smaller as a result.

    Their winner asset is that efficient heat-exchanger concept, this certainly was their best contribution IMO!

    :peace:
