    We are the summation of our experiences, and some folks have had bad experiences with the EVO. I understand. If I spent $450 and had nothing go right, frustration would be too kind of word. Many of us have had nothing but good experiences with our EVOs. Because of that, we are fans. It is totally fair not to like a product, and it is totally fair to be in love with it. Different experiences produce different outcomes.

    90 dollars? Couldn't you get the replacement for free, and test that out and still have the ability to return it if you don't like it or if it didn't work? Seems like you're giving up a bit too early at your own expense.

    Yes they are charging me a 20% fee for the restocking...Getting a remplacement unit was something i was offer by the site but since they just had 3 EVO they receive in the same time i was not very sure about a remplacement since its could be unit with the firmware problems.

    I decide to stop the fee get back the vap i was using everyday flawlessly (cloud) and take the loss.

    Maybe the EVO is the best vaporizer ever and if its working great for u its super nice :).

    @Jamesqc666
    You said money's tight for you , I get that .
    But why would you spend $ 90 and Have Nothing to show for it .
    Rather than spend $ 20 to $ 30 shipping and Have Something to show .
    Hopefully ( fingers crossed ) a good working unit .

    The Evo has Customer support for their issues .
    The Cloud + does not , if I'm correct . Meaning , what will you do if/when the Cloud + has problems . Will you be buying an Evo then ?

    Also Stonemonkey55 reached out to you personally to submit a ticket .
    From what I've read , some members who were assisted by sm55 . Came out doing alright , maybe some perks to make up for lost time .That may relieve some of the pain of shipping costs . idk

    The problems you've stated are known and I'm aware of what I may
    expect when I get mine . But I'm hoping their QC have resolved them .
    Sm55 is on FC forum and Does Listen to their customers .

    Good Luck my fellow Canuck .

    For the simple fact thats for having the fund necessary for the EVO i had to sold my old cloud cause i didnt had the 450 for this...So ive come to the conclusion thats getting refund 360 of 450 and getting my cloud back was better thats starting to ship the EVO and for quoting you Hopefully ( fingers crossed ) a good working unit.I dont see myself asking my buddy after 1 month heyyyy its possible to get my old vap back lol.

    Sorry to bump an old post but this setup has been on my mind for awhile, more so now that I got a Hydrafoot 2.0 on the way. Is that just the SSV Saturn Vapor Tamer? And are the joints on it both 18 mm (both the female and male ends)?

    I had a similar experience with selling my Cloud to my friend and buying an EVO that needed a firmware update. However, I had no problems spending $10 to get a better working unit. One week later I had a perfectly working EVO and I had saved money by taking a t-break. I would never ask my friend to sell it back to me because I changed my mind :2c:.

    You can make an argument about a high number of reports of firmware updates needed, but as far as I know only one person has had to send it in again after they had already sent it in (edit to clarify: I don't know of more than one person who has had to send it in twice for firmware issues). I may be wrong in that matter.

    A quote from page 51 from SM about the EVOs that needed to be sent back...


    Edit 2: While attempting to see if there was more than one person who had to send it in twice I saw another SM quote which addressed early firmware concerns.

    I agree and know from experience that's it's frustrating to have that downtime with concern if it will pay off. I may sound defensive, but I just rant by nature. I'm basically saying I think it would be in your best interest to at least try a firmware update once, but I sympathize with where you are coming from.

    The proposition made by my site was to send me a new one from their stock and not to get the firmware update from VXL.I try the EVO at max temps and still got very thin vapor.

    I totally agree. That is probably the most informed and well reviewed article yet for the EVO!!

    A product failure, even a moderate one, doesn't win Cannabis Cup awards, and the neither the crooked manufacturer (let's call a spade a spade) nor repair issues dirtied up the product launch enough IMO to call the Cloud anything but a success. Some people definitely got burned, but others made out just fine with replacements they wouldn't have received from some other companies, and lots of people got great prices during the initial launch- A Cloud with hydratube for $350 was quite a bargain. The EVO is actually the 'Cloud EVO', so I feel like they've built on the Cloud, instead of sweeping it under the rug, as you would a product with a bad rep.

    I'd like to 2nd that vaporizers.ca is a great company. I've dealt with them a number of times and they've always been great! Thanks vaporizers.ca! It's companies like vaporizers.ca and PlanetVape that give me hope for the future of customer service!

    It was $500 for the combo which was still an incredible bargain, especially considering the amazing glass.

    $350 was the original price for a cloud+hydratube.

    As in OG cloud, throw your name on the waiting list before it launched.

    Then I believe it got bumped up to $400-$450 after about a year or so, and then the cloud was released like 6 months after that?

    I'm a bit hazy on the timeline, but yeah, there was a $350 cloud+tube package back in the day.

    (And curse your lucky stars whomever was lucky enough to get a sov gridded tree HT for that price.)

    Apologies! My neurons and synapses just thought EVO (indigogo) so I somehow unconsciously linked that to the $500 amount.

    Wow, that was an incredible deal for a HT/Cloud....especially those most awesome OG's and i'll never forget my first "ticker". I remember being jealous of all those with the Sov! lol I'll tell ya, i've had a bunch of HT's over the years since the OG release, and i'm so regretting selling every single one now that i'm nearly exclusively vaping through water.

    In the beginning I really wanted to have a collection of Hydratube's until I saw the prices and couldn't do it. Still rocking the Evolver HydraTree 1.0 straight. Wish I had one more but alas, not in the cards right now.
