    lol, the power supply should be ok right now. No surges so far as I can tell! Luckily I still have my EQ ready to go. Just quite sad my 2nd cloud suffered the same fate as my first, in even less time...

    Try putting the ELB in any 19mm M joint adaptor, and sucking on the other side. Otherwise,1/2" I'D tubing works, but glass is ideal. I think I use an arizer whip adaptor(?)
    I'm interested to see your explanations, because this thing is really easy to use.
    BTW, do you still have your DG tube? Mine is my go to for dab style rips that are smooth on the throat. I do love my HT for the added flavor for low temp rips.

    For loading one of the easiest ways is to just take a business-card and fold it longways (like a hotdog)
    It nicely funnels the herb into the ELB.
    An upgrade to that is a stainless steel folded piece of metal lab tool that someone posted in the thread a while back (thinking maybe t-dub or tstat...one of the t's)

    Specifically that is for if you're using a 2pc grinder instead of a 4pc (what I do)


    Also regarding usage: If you're going to do back-to-back rips, a good 20-30 minute pre-heat instead of just 9-12 mins seems to make a difference. Also, don't be afraid to crank the heat past 12 o'clock, got to try it all before you find your sweet spot :tup:

    Do you use surge protection?

    I sure do! Never plugged either unit in without one. I read somewhere to make sure to use one with the cloud.

    thanks for all the tips dudes! im sure ill be pro and have a routine in a week. right now the hydrafoot stand really helps for simplyfing things. i also have the habbit of clogging the airpath by setting it on top of my knee flush.

    Sorry for my ignorance, but is the blowing in the tube for reclaim? I have never seen anyone do that before.

    There is definitely a reason to avoid clogging the airpath and then inhaling. Apparently it creates a vacuum on the glass which technically weakens it a little every time.

    oh i avoid it, it just freaked me out when it happened. and for everyone wondering its just and old dirty ssv whip, thats soapy water, and im blowing bubbles cause im a simple minded retard that enjoys life everyday, just bubbles.....for FUN :) but really try it, gets me higher cause im so focus on holding my hits in and gently exhaling. the screen in the SSV whip is super boss for blowing bubbles cause it slows the air flow down so your breath dosent pop the bubbles!

    If there's one vape that could do similarly to this .gif, with vapor, it's the cloud.

    Tonight my ELB died (or is at least in a coma). The Cloud is fine (actually, the cloud is better than fine; it's amazing! :tup: )

    I tried the experiment in which you only use one ELB and don't clean it, and the cap has clogged to the point that I can't even get the hydratube to bubble (after only just under 2 weeks).

    Unlike SliM, I use my Cloud on the lowest setting (which likely leaves more sticky residue behind).

    I sent my ELB to the iso-pital (isopropyl hospital), and he should be good as new soon. :D

    Enjoy your Clouds (and the clouds that your Clouds create). :cool:

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Never thought of this but what a fantastic idea! You just changed my life :) ... (I spend a lot of time on a daily basis loading Cloud ELB's and this was the one part I didn't like--trying to tap the ELB to get stuff to fall down etc.). Just built a quick little "loader" with an EQ ELB, short piece of silicone tubing and a glass EQ bag end for a mouthpiece ... works like a charm! :)

    You've reached an invalid conclusion due to a lack of understanding how a thread like this works. You always see a bias towards posts from people with problems because they are the ones who look for a forum to ask for help. If there were no posts from happy successful owners your conclusion might be justified, but this thread is full of those.

    Exactly. And forums like this one also provide an inaccurate sense of how many problem units are out there. When a vape gets popular and sales climb (the Cloud qualifies here), forum members become a very small sampling of the true number of owners.

    So the company should start selling the product at a loss? The selling price being high doesn't mean there's a big profit margin, as you seem to think. I'm afraid your speculation is just wishful thinking.

    Is this not a possible cause right there? Since it already may be broken, try it directly in the wall. If you can try it at a friends house. It'll help diagnose shit and get you using this vape faster. I promise its worth it. My older one is still going just fine so maybe its something simple. I use surge protectors on everything but this vape. IDK why that is but its how it is for me. I'll live dangerously and just not use it during thunderstorms. So far I've blown fuses on the same circuit and its fine.

    At least humor me and try it in your own wall directly before you send it out. At a friends house direct in the wall would be ideal to troubleshoot. Either way they will get you settled with a good one. I'd be frustrated as all hell if I were you, but trust me keep at it!

    LSV is awesome, but not something comparable at all. Lets say you could get a $187 LSV, then what the $$$ hydratube needs to be added for some sort of comparison. Even then there are some important differences with the cloud that many find advantageous to the cloud. If you are on a strict budget and aren't picky then the LSV may be a great choice, but many people see lots of differences between the two. Myself included.

    The amount of clouds sold would make you head spin. I wish one of the cloud team would say it just to show you how wrong that statement is. I had one friend tell me there is no way it was worth the money and he'd stick to his other several vapes. He came over one day, tried my cloud, and ordered one with his credit card that same day because he couldn't even wait to save up for it he was so impressed.

    You need to try it before you can compare it.



    EDIT: Sorry for the back to back post. I could have sworn someone posted between them. IDK why I always do that.

    ugh, people, just stop it... stop trying to justify the price, cause as soon as you take your first hit youll have no problems paying that price. so dont be mad if you cant afford it, just save up or build some credit its worth it. i wasted so much money trying other vapes that i realise i should of went straight for this vape.
