    There are many good vapes on the market that dont get the attention they deserve on this forum. And the ones with replaceable 18650s and convection get more attention nowadays, whether or not its a reliable piece. Some folks dont care if a portable has great vapor quality and great build quality for a great price if it doesnt use 18650s. But I would much rather have a Prima than some of these other trending vapes. And I prefer conduction. Different strokes for different folks

    Well now that would do it, wouldn't it.

    I keep my vape very clean and like to vape at low temp for flavor. I hope this Prima will draw smooth when clean and used at temp 1 or 2. :)

    Edit: By the way I saw a review that showed a very easy technique for cleaning the Prima. Probably how I should clean my vape too. Hmmm will that be port or brandy?

    The Prima is easy to clean. You just remove the steel rod and soak in ISO. The bowl rarely gets dirty, but if it does take a brush to it. The only part that gets dirty is the cap screen. Little ISO and it will be clean in 2 minutes top, I have the alternate mouth piece and it never needs cleaned. Even my Plenty is harder to clean and that thing is also simple to clean.

    I love the look of the all black Prima. I read on the company website that the company was formed in Ca. Does anybody know about the manufacturing of the Prima? Where is it made? I apologize if this has already been answered. I read the first 2 pages, and the last two pages of the thread. I'm being lazy.

    @Vitolo your earlier posts convinced me this vape must be solid.

    Also in my post above I should have added the cleaning technique involved using a shot glass for ISO. That's why I said port or brandy.

    @PPN you got me. I should have credited everyone who has posted about the Prima. I'm sure I'm going to buy something for 4-20 and this is a contender.

    How long the battery last? I can't give you an answer. I always use it at home so I am near a charger. So mostly it's on a charger. I can tell you it takes a little less than an hour to fully charge. I just can't remember how long it took to get to the point of running all the way out. The battery will will be held firmly in place. In fact when you first get it it'll be a really hard to get the battery out. But after the second time it get easier to remove. Sometimes I think it gets too hot. You have to have the secondary mouthpiece in order to use it. The original just gets too hot. also the secondary mouthpiece is 14 millimeter and fits into a water pipe.

    Habitually I use it for 2 cycles for each session (first cycle at level 2 and second cycle at level 3 and 4 to cash the load) and I can make 4 sessions before to get only 1 bar where I put the battery on the charger. I bet another cycle or 2 is possible but I don't like to drain too much my batteries. I have 3 Prima's batteries, 1 is brand new in the case....and I rotate with the 2 others batteries. I noticed some wall adaptaters don't works well to charge the Prima's batteries.

    The Prima is very smooth and performs rather well with concentrates also!

    Thanks for the reply. Still satisfied? I'm considering buying it. Does the lid hold tight, solid? The mouthpiece is not hot? How is the touch button? Does she forget herself in her pocket?

    Still very satisfied!

    Yes but maybe not tight enough to put it in your pocket like that, for me it's more a portable at home or for driving, not the best to carry around... but still portable without any doubt.

    No hot mp, very smooth vapor!

    That's a cons... it is not very smooth or reactive to the touch...

    Hmm... I would say.... no, cause it's a bit heavy and not so small (in comparison with the 2017 standards...) in example the Fury is a bit more than half the size... but without replacable batteries.

    I want to add it was very well designed for cleaning which is great enough to be mentionned!

    Thanks for the reviews. He's already on his way. So I'm tense. I was a little scared about the messy brass boiler. I hope it's a pham.

    Did you order the silicone mouthpiece? The silicone mouthpiece lets you fit it into a 14mm bubbler. Also with my vaporizer the standard mouthpiece got unbearably hot. The silicone mouthpiece never heats up.

    I'm still using my Prima on a near daily basis since last Christmas... so I obviously like it a whole lot.

    I only use it with dry herbs and have yet to really need to clean the Chamber or the pad that's used as the bottom screen(i have but it didn't actually Need it) and cleaning the rest is super simple.

    I usually get around 6 if not 7 five minute sessions out of one battery charge without completely draining it.
    I do one chamber per session. If I use it with my bubbler I actually get 8-9 sessions since I can finish in 3-4 hits.

    I haven't had a problem with the mouthpiece getting hot at all although if I do extended or double sessions the chamber end of the Vape gets very hot.

    I bought this to give as a gift and ended up keeping it and gotta say I'm happy things worked out this way.

    If I should ever lose my Prima I'd replace it right away.

    Here it is with my Bio-Bong. I love my Prima. I like the N02 even more. Very easy to get huge clouds. Vapir gets a bad rap. I love their stuff.

    This. I have never felt the need to clean the pad or chamber. I clean everything that disconnects from the main unit.

    I ordered a second mouthpiece and a bubler. So I'm very curious about the clouds. So far all who have it, they just praise.

    I love my Prima, and love my NO2 even more also.
    Invariably, when I find Vapir getting a bad rap... those that jump on the bandwagon to complain do no0t own any Vapir products.
    I love their stuff too!
    I am using a 6 year old NO2 as I type. (admittedly I changed the battery once at three and a half years)

    I think the N02 has a smoother pull to it. I also like how you can literally throw in the weed, no learning curve, packing it etc. It's also less harsh than the Prima. The Prima is worth the money though.

    So Prima is already in my hands. An interesting device. Total weight. Maybe I can use it as a self-defense tool. Great chamber for me. I would be half-satisfied. I give very little. Maybe, therefore, miss the clouds. But he's fingering

    I gifted a Vapir Prima to the son of a lady I know. I've never met him but have tried to coach thru her.
    He sounds like a heavy user, used to combusting, and he tells her the bowl is too small.
    Can he remove the SS pad from the chamber AND replace it with a screen in the bottom, to allow bigger loads?
    Anyone done this and care to comment please?

    I never tried it without the pad as I'm a microdoser ???
    Thanks
