    I've had my tvape for 4 days now and I have nothing good to say about it. The herbs get used up after 3-5 pulls, is that the norm, I don't know but for me it blows. I think the battery already got burned out from using it while plugged in. Maybe im wrong but the manufacturer said you could do that. All this while using the lowest temperature, didn't see a need to raise temp. I owned an herblaire 2 , think that's the name it was a tabletop unit that blew the vapor into a bag. Wonderful vaporizer! Am I expecting too much from a portable vape? A whole "cigarette" worth of herbs for such few hits, that's mighty expensive. Atleast a Arizer vape is on the way, hope that's not a waste of money also.

    How long are you heating your T-Vape?

    Long tube I'm assuming?

    That sounds accurate. If you hold the button that long you're quickly heating it up to max temp. I use to think I could only get 6 hits until it was abv but I've honed my technique and am quite happy with vaping it past those 6 hits as it only gets more effective.

    the tvape gets turned on then I don't press any buttons til it gets turned off. It should be at lowest temperature, right?

    So is yours green and still heating it? When did you buy your T-Vape and from where?

    You should have to press the button for it to work in general. You should get one inhale from the minute thirty heatup if you preloaded it and then it should stop producing vapor.

    Your supposed to wait for the tvape to heat up and then pack it?
    when turned on its red then when it heats up it turns green, right. The green light stays on until its shut off. Whether or not its still heating up I have no idea.

    I bought it from someone on eBay, new I bought it about a week ago.

    When you turn it on its red implying its heating, when green it stops heating. You press and hold the button and it forms vapor.

    You can preload or put it in after, I believe it was designed to have herb or joints put in after but whose gonna do that.

    Does it turn off around 10-15 minutes of not pressing the button?
    The instructions it comes with are inaccurate.

    Oh wow, can't wait to get out of work to try it out!
    Imagine that the company that makes the tvape can't even get the instructions correct, stop testing your product when working.
    Thank you for the help will let you know how it works out.

    Just had a terrible experience with my T-Vape. I have only used the unit twice before. I always keep my portable units fully charged and ready to go. Anyway, I grabbed the T-Vape this morning, loaded it up and was planning on a lunch time session. Anyway, once it came down to business the fucking thing was completely dead or it is broken. Has anyone had a similar experience? I have always though that once a portable was charged that it should remain charged for a long time unless it is used.

    I was sitting on the fence with this thing to be honest. It can work but the manufacturer does not even know how to work the thing and at best it is very finicky. Sorry guys but I am relegating this one to the trash heap.

    I understand, one day I had a weird issue when testing with concentrates. It went green while on the charger I unplugged and turned it on only to get a horrible death like taste and to see my T-Vape not turn on for a day. Even though it was fully charged. I even replugged it and just kept it in, it kept going green but would turn back on after the horrible taste. I message square with no response to this day. Luckily the next day it worked like it didn't have a problem.

    I've had mine not be in use for a while and it still kept its charge but these are more of 3 weeks apart without usage but I still plug it back in to ensure its got a bit of life because its not a great battery. I would say keep testing, no one should ever knock a vape until they've thoroughly tested it.

    Batteries do lose their charge over time, google will provide many better answers then what I can copy and paste. And of course overcharging is going to actually shorten the life as well.

    I tried doing everything you suggested and it really didn't do anything better. The first hit is always good then even when button is held when I inhaleit seems like nothing comes out. After reading how unreliable the battery is, im just giving up on the tvape. Thanks for the help anyways
    To the makers of tvape, thank you for a very expensive paperweight!

    Where have you read about an unreliable Battery ? I've had problems getting it to charge a couple of times but none once it was.

    The T-Vape is a poor choice for a first vaporizer as it takes a bit of work to understand your unit but once you figure it out it can be and awesome big hitter.

    all said though if I had bought a short t-vape first I wouldn't care for it much. My short is nowhere near as good as the long. Still if I hold the power button until the light flashes then let off and re-engage the power as I inhale I get some Big good hits.

    Keep workin' at it the payoff is worth it.

    You have to hold for a while, I am assuming your doing this as you watched the video. But it isn't just going to form out of nowhere, its a slow heating process.

    I haven't really had any real battery issues, if anything I would blame the oven first. Battery life for this vape is 35 minutes of usage regardless of temperature, at least for me. I've found this vape to be consistent, but I feel I know and understand exactly how its working when I use it.

    I have a ?
    Why does my t vape turn off after 10-13 sec. I hit the button 5 times the light turns red for 10-13 second count then turns black off. I through away the instructions after reading the first 20 post here in the back did it say anything about turning off after 10 sec I remember something about turning orange but That was dead battery my battery lights shows green when plugged in .

    Also if it helps it worked fine for first two weeks now today nothing ?

    Is it fully tightened, does it do that when you have it on the charger?

    Mr gweilo 420 said his battery went dead without using it. By the time i figure this thing out I'll have spent hundreds on herb alone. before that happens might as well spend the money on a paxor arizer solo

    Here is my 2 cents. There are a number of vaporizers that work well. No question. So once any of these models have serious question marks over them well I advise you to go for a trusted reliable model. I was pissed off yesterday because I could not medicate as planned. I have since calmed down :) I will try tvape again but I only purchased it as a cheap experiment. For reliability and proven performance tvape is not the model of choice. The fact that the manufacturer gives incorrect instructions is a real concern IMO.

    I feel the manufacturer designed it for tobacco and only used it for tobacco. They sell primarily tobacco oriented products and the entire design is meant to replace actual cigarettes, it can do our herb but obviously is meant for tobacco. The instructions are fine and dandy but I think we interpret them incorrectly with our understanding of other vaporizers and assume it should work like them. I do feel the temp rises after 10 seconds but I know mine doesn't keep heating once I let go, I have learned that the hard way by soaking it in ISO on day one. Only to have to inhale ISO for about 20+ draws until I realized when and how vapor was forming.

    I agree this is not a reliable unit to have as your only vape and you will be severely disappointed if you need to use it more than 3 times a day or have a higher tolerance. I personally only recommend it if you NEED to use around people or in public by watchers. Otherwise its a novelty vape that will be forgotten come the new wave of vapes in the Fall and next year. Its a pleasure using it as it just feel great when it works but I try and convince people to consider the Hammer before they splurge on this. When I am with people I heat it up for them, I know they would not like it if they tried to do it themselves, I tell them not to inhale while you're heating its counter productive and to let it heat longer, I don't know why people ignore my advice in real life. They will hand it back and say I got nothing and they are so lucky I'm non-violent because I was telling them how to use it before and during their hit.. So now I just heat it for them and everyone says its great and somehow the Hammer is just too much work.

    I'm assuming its fully charged and tightened like a butt, you're testing it when the light on the bottom goes green. If its not working it sounds like you'll have to chance yourself with communicating to your seller or Squaresmoke, but I believe they need to restock so it may be a while before they actually get to you with a replacement part.
