    Just bought a new power supply without a dimmer - 12V 2A and the log is heating.
    Takes time to heat so I'll try in a bit

    Then it looks like the PS is faulty itself and indicating that with the blinking LED. As there is usually only one LED, it's multi purpose and different rhythms in blinking might point to the exact fault. One would have to look that up in the manufacturers manual/at the website, if it's noted somewhere to begin with.

    Took some hits and it's strong!
    I think since the power supply doesn't have a dimmer it's always 2 Amperes. It's similar to when I put the dial in max level (10) when I used the PS that came with the underdog.
    As someone on reddit wrote it's always probably the Power Supply since the underdog units are very reliable and well built. Props to them.

    Ive got an Underdog I'm really enjoying a lot. Amazing how efficient it is. Using it I'm finding one aspect kind of confusing and I wasn't able to find an answer in this thread.

    Is there an air intake on a Standard Mk2 Underdog? Where exactly is it? It def feels like air enters in through the DC plug hole-is that normal? Basically Im having a hard time understanding the air path. Can someone shed some light on the set up? Thanks!

    The air intake is thru the very narrow slit(s) in the top plate of the core, you can see them just inside the retaining ring. Doesn't seem like there would be enough space but there is. A small amount of airflow can also come thru the power plug when the vape is unplugged but when it's plugged in the hole is filled with the barrel of the plug which blocks any real airflow.:2c: :peace:

    Heya Dogs!

    Hope this summer's been treating you well. Just want to say that it looks like we had to change our merchant processor password, and forgot to update it on the website.... so nobody's been able to check out.

    We have that fixed now!

    So sorry for any inconveniences. Thanks a bunch guys and gals. :)

    Thanks for that info, I didn't even notice the slit near the retaining ring. Yea the airflow I was noticing through the plug hole was when it was unplugged. I'm really loving the Underdog, esp. with the stainless steel tips.

    It never gets old seeing how long you can whitewall glass with the tiny amount in a NonG, what a great hit.

    When the time comes to clear the chamber, I just lift the NonG with the log on top of it, there's plenty of room above the taper to grab without touching the steel. I used to do it like in the vid, two-step, but sometimes it made me feel spazzy. Give it a shot if you like, it's kind of nice to have the Underdog in one hand, glass in the other, through the exhale.:smug:

    This is my two year anniversary with my UD! Still going strong, zero issues. I typically only use it on the weekends, and keep it securely tucked away when not in use (see below). With my "light touch" use-case, I don't see why this won't last for many, many more years.

    I posted about my case a while back...

    ...and always intended to post a picture, here goes:

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, it looks like MCM Electronics (which is now Newark/Element14) doesn't carry this case any more. Boo!

    It really is perfect for my needs: the back area (behind the mesh), holds an extra power extension cable, lighter, and the ultimate stem tool (a chopstick). The big compartments hold the UD, grinder, ABV jar, and power supply. The small front compartment holds stems, my VapCap and lighter.

    I can't leave my stuff out (have little ones running around), and this case allows me to keep it all neat and nicely tucked away when not in use. If anyone knows somewhere that sells that case or an equivalent, it would be nice to know for others (or myself in case I ever get a second UD... not that I need another log vape, but I would by lying if I said I don't go look at the UD website on a semi-regular basis).

    Edit: My imgur link doesn't appear to be working...
    Edit2: Trying pic again with Tinypic... that appears to work.

    Edit3: One question: it could very well be my imagination, but it seems like the body of my UD, after having been on for a couple hours or so, gets warmer than it used to. It's not too hot to hold, but there are "hot spots" that can be a bit much. It's definitely hottest where the upper ring touches the body. Again, this could just be my imagination. But just thought I'd through that out there to see if anyone else thinks theirs gets slightly hotter as time goes on.

    All of my dogs are hottest about 3/4" down from the top -- where the upper ring touches the body, like you said. Makes sense to me, it's a bit of a heat bottleneck (by design, I imagine, since it's also where the fresh air intake is) and you'd get direct conduction from the ring to the body. I do occasionally find it feels hotter or cooler on the outside, but there are a lot of variables at play, like ambient temperature, or having a window open or a fan going. I'll occasionally pick one up and be surprised at how hot it feels, but it performs the same as usual, so I reckon my hands are just extra baby that day. :) I can't correlate it with the age of the Underdog.
