    when i had mine i had it all taped and siliconed up had a big rubber strap to wrap around it trying to stop the leaking. needless to say after i picked up a pd i never looked back at that thing. its an ok vape if its free. but i would never spend money on one yet alone 150. any vape that you have to "modify" to make it work properly isnt a very good vape. my suggest getting a new vape, you will be much happier in the long run.

    I am loving this thing.
    It has a fan that can not be turned off, but the heat on/off button works fast as hell!
    I found it fun and efficient, and easy to maintain
    The Flat bags are a plus, for storage, and they can lay flat while filling!

    So i picked up one of these vaporizers of flea-bay the other week.
    Brand new, still in the box with all accessories!
    I was debating on whether i wanted to open it and use it or try and sell it again to get my money back.
    Reading through all the reviews had me wondering if it would be something i would enjoy using.

    So last night i was looking at the box again and decided to just go for it!
    Open the box, read the instruction manual and set the Temp to 190 degrees C.
    Whining fan is a bit annoying...
    Load the stainless steel chamber and wait for temp to be reached, took about 2 minutes so not bad.
    Load the tray with the capsule and insert into vape and watch the bag fill!
    Fill bag for about 15 seconds on low and then switch up to medium for the rest of the bag.

    Now comes the part i don't like!
    Once the bag is full you remove from the vape.
    Bag in hand with thumb over the tube, try to remove tray from vape with other hand... Not very easy!
    And you are wasting vapor because the heater is still blowing.
    Need to figure this part out!

    Apart from that i really like this vape!
    One bag and i was seriously ripped for a long time!
    Managed to get another bag out from the same load, not as strong but still effective!

    As to flavor, i would say this is where it loses out, may be the bag?
    I will have to try it with just the whip to test the flavor.

    More testing to be done!!

    WoW a blast from the past!
    I still use my 5.0 occasionally when I want to revape some abv. I do run out of
    herb and I find the 5.0 does an easier job than risking combustion in my Launch
    Box vape.
    After three years of use, the unit still works well, still leaks a bit and remains noisy as all hell.
    As a cheap and effective party vape, it still works well.
    I've moved on to better vapes, but the 5.0 being my first vape purchase still has a place in
    my line up.
    Hey Lazylathe once you get your routine down pulling out the cassette and stoppering the bag will be second nature. With the whip I would remove the cassette after each draw, wait and then reinsert
    the cassette to continue vaping without wasting any herb.
    Have fun :rofl::ko::ko:

    I agree that it is suited to a party environment more than a daily driver.
    It works well for what it is and what i paid for it, so no real complaints!
    If i paid anywhere near full price for it i would have been disappointed..
    Since i paid $40 for it and it has never been used i am quite happy!

    We will get a lot of use out of it when friends come over!

    Thanks.
    I just got the "bug" and just had to do a session with my Vapir One.
    Mine is 3.5 years old and still works like a champ.
    I use it about once a week... but without a bag.. I just sit and inhale forced air vapor repeatedly.
    I bought two Vapir Ones when I got this one 3.5 years ago... one for me and the other for a community member. I have dozens of vapes, but it is this community members main vape (he has this and a VaporGenie)... and it still works fine.

    I have made all videos private and have replaced them with images.
    I overlooked some threads.
    I am posting that video here, and will leave it public for a while.

    Awesome stuff thanks Vito!!!
    I had about the same density vapor as you on my first go with it, so the learning curve is not steep at all!

    PS: I saw your dog in the corner of the screen!!
    Looks like a Border Collie type?
    Man's best friend!!
    :dog:

    Love my dogs.
    Buster can pick up my vaporizer parts for me when they drop.
    He too is a vape buddy.
    He likes the sound of the Vapir Air One

    Such a good boy!!

    Always liked this joke:

    How can you tell who loves you more? Your wife or your dog?
    Try this experiment:

    Put your dog and your wife in the trunk of the car for an hour.

    When you open the trunk, who is really happy to see you?

    Well… it has been a Vapir kind of day.
    I rekindled my love early in the day of my Vapir Rize….A half hour session that consumed 1.1 grams, and left me comfortable for a couple of hours!
    .33 of a gram fit into the loading disk of the Vapir One 5.0…. and left me smooth and disk depleted. An hour well spent.
    I busted out with the Prima after lunch, and did 2 sessions… one with flower, and one with concentrate(wax) on the mesh pad.
    Next. a pre-dinner treat using the Vapir Oxygen Mini… .25 of a gram.
    This brings us up to the moment… I have a small scoop of .1 of a gram in the NO2 (7 years old.. only one battery change at year 3).. and the NO2 session just won't end!!
    There is a reason the NO2 is still on the top 3 of the original part of my signature.

    Now for a tidbit…. a piece of Vaporization History that is not well known.
    While I have other favorite vapes… the NO2's medicating effect always felt different to me, and I loved the unit.. (I have owned this one for 7 years)
    This was when I learned about the difference between convection and conduction.
    The Oxygen Mini came early on, but needed to be plugged in… even though it was tiny. You could get an external rechargeable battery pack, the size of half a brick… but I always used mine plugged in.
    Vapirs Vaporizers are all convection vapes.
    NO2 was fore-runner in the technology of convection Portables, and the portables that followed began to grasp at conduction technology. (tight oven = less battery power consumed Vs. heated air passing through standing herbal matter)
    AS far as Convection Technology, Vapir has remained consistent, and steadfast in pursuit of convection devices.
    How do I know?
    I have stayed in contact with this company through the years.
    I found that they have held the first patent on convection vaporization, since 2007.
    You can view it at
    Patent for Convection Vapor Technology.
    See more at https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1489588/000121390014009206/f8k123014_vapirenter.htm
    Any way, I have just expressed respect for Vapir, a company that has not faltered...
    and I owe them a great deal as I learned from their devices!

    After placing many calls and emailing many of Vapir's past leaders... I got an email this morning.
    While the business is listed as permanently closed, and their phones are "not working numbers".....There is still someone there at Vapir that cares!

    News.....
    Vapir is still open.
    Vapir Air one 5.0 is discontinued but other vapes are not.
    They are in fact having a sale now on their website.
    I am here to advise of a new Vapir product...
    a 510 threaded Battery that I will tell more about later.
    Check this new "Air2" Battery at http://www.vapir.com/air2-vaporizer-battery
