Discussion in 'Portable Vaporizers' started by PlanetVape, May 15, 2012.
It took 2 weeks from placing the order to the receipt of the order, and I am on the US East Coast.
Are there any accessories or extra parts you recommend on an initial order?
The last order I made from Solwe in Spain took 10 days to get to me in Florida even though once it made it to the US it went from NYC to New Hampshire before heading south.
They do carry it at Planetvape.ca so it comes from North America if you order from them.
I'm new to the Vaponic, so I just ordered the plain one and some extra screens. I have lots of torches for my vapcaps so I didn't need one of those.
It's such a simple device-not much can go wrong other than the obvious fatal accident of glass breaking.
Got one on order. Oh VAS...
So I have a couple torches for my Vapcaps. A double and a triple. Would like to get a single flame for this puppy.
With the 2 torches I have now, I hold the vapcap over the flame while rotating.
Is the technique the same with the Vaponic or get a single flame torch that points at/towards the device like a pistol?
Would welcome any single flame recommendations too!
I have great success with this: https://www.amazon.com/Kitchen-Refillable-Culinary-Adjustable-Included/dp/B071DGFXBQ
And yes I use the same technique of rolling the vaponic. Your VC experience will help a lot.
Enjoy. Gonna get mine out now and start off this Memorial Day weekend. Cheers
Thanks! Guess what I was asking is do you hold/rotate your Vaponic over the flame or point the flame torch at the vape? (Not sure that makes sense!)
And that does sound like a great start to your Memorial day weekend!
Now I'm a bit confused. I just use my vaponic as if it's a glass vc. Meaning that I hold it and roll it the way George does in DV videos with the flame at about a 45 degree angle towards the area on the Vaponic that is designated for flame.
Hope this helps.
Ah gotcha. That does help!
As soon as you said "like George does" I knew exactly what you were talking about! I love how simple and concise his videos are.
If you go to the first page of this thread there's a usage video in post #24 by the guy that came up with the Vaponic. That may help.
Plus, there is an instruction booklet included in the package.
I ordered mine on May 9th and received it yesterday. I am very impressed. Nice feel. Easy to use. VERY efficient. I was quite surprised at the excellent brown ABV that was left after using the Vaponic. I seldom have to heat it twice. I did combust once so it is possible.
Overall, very nice.
As far as where to order it in the USA.... forget it. I looked all over and I couldn't find it ANYWHERE. So, I ordered off the web site and had it in 2 weeks.
I will say that the tracking sucked. My tracking info still shows it in transit and never having ever reached this country. Last scan was "Left Sorting Facility in Spain" or something close. That was on the 16th. That was the last scan. Then, like I said, it showed up yesterday.
It makes me wonder how Healthy Rips gets things delivered across the pond in a week or so and almost everyone else takes at least 2 weeks or more.
I guess Healthy Rips has a big shot contact at the Post Office. LOL
Anyway... love my Vaponic.
@Hackerman I think healthy rips is based in USA so generally USPS can have a faster service ,it is far more developed institution with well payed employees because it serves 300 billion people who are demanding top quality service. Here in Europe that is not always the case,in my country post service is the lowest paid job ,like 200$/month,it is more of a hobby job or for people who want to do some hours after retirement..professional level is non existent. Even within EU i have to wait sometimes a week or more.
Good point. I am originally from Italy and the postal service there is a joke. They take whatever they want for themselves, deliver what they feel like and toss the rest. LMAO
Not quite that bad but it seems close some times. LOL
In the US, we criticize the Post Office all the time and call the workers lazy and gun crazy (event that happened decades ago) but I have worked with them for many many years and I think our Postal system is very cool.
You want incredible delivery.... buy from Amazon. I order certain stuff from Amazon on Friday night and they are knocking on my door Sunday afternoon. LMAO Unbelievable.
DabPress has the right idea having Amazon fulfillment. Vaponic should send a few dozen to Amazon for US buyers. So far, 2 of us here wanted to buy US. Well, OK. 2 buyers isn't exactly an Amazon warehouse full. LOL Still, can't say enough good about Amazon when it comes to delivery. If I were a manufacturer wanting to sell my products in the USA, I would certainly be considering Amazon as a partner.
Smoking my Vapo now. Really enjoying this for a butane vap. I just tried adding some metal to the mix and using the induction heater for the Vaponic.
Except Amazon won't back herb vapes in the USA. They used to carry everything and back it with Amazon prime but had a problem with fakes and returns so they quite doing the vape thing in the USA.
Bummer. I was not aware of that. So much for Amazon. LOL
Thanks for the info.
Well I gotta say that they shipped the order super fast. Ordered last night (US EST) and got shipping notification this morning
Is that just stupid me? just broke my 5th inner tube in 2 years, but never an outer tube
@Dutch-Mic in the last pic is my quick&simple heater:
maybe that works 4u - it also works without the copper fitting, just hold the outer tube to the soldering iron and wrap a bit of copper wire around both where the heating zone is, so it holds it snug together...
Haha to me it's not stupid that you broke five inner tubes, it's quite an accomplishment you never broke a outer tube
Nice DIY project! The heater looks like a more beautiful Plenty. At the moment I'm "drowning" in my workload, but I would love to replicate your flameless heating solution.
Same as dodgy_b, ordered May 31 & shipped June 1. From what others say , it should be anywhere from 10-14 days for delivery to the east coast.
Here was my order/ship/received timeline to the Northeast US:
Ordered: May 24th
Shipped: May 25th
Received: June 6th
Fyi, it does say "Pipa Fumar" on the international form attached to the package and does require a signature.
I'm old enough to not have to be stealth anymore but my wife was like "so we're ordering pipes from Spain now?" Lol.
Looking forward to test driving it later tonight!
I can only assume you replied with a good ol’ “Hell yeah!”
Hey all. Playing around with the new arrival.
It seems there's some play on how far forward the inner glass can rest at the end of the outer glass tube (depending on where I place the mouthpiece gasket.)
Should the inner tube be pushed all the forward to the inside end of the outer or better to have a gap between the two?
You want to have a small gap there!
Detailed instructions on position of tube..
Last night I tried and failed to use all my vaporizers on my 63rd birthday, sorry Vivant Alternate-I just couldn't do it.
Cuz I finally had the kind of session(s) with my Vaponic that I dreamed about. I found a smaller single flame torch that I'd not used in a long time. It's perfect for the Vaponic as it provides just enough heat-my other torches were just too hot and hard to control.
The flavors are amazing, and I was really surprised at how hard it hit me. I also moved the inner-tube closer to the mouthpiece to increase draw resistance and I think that helped a bit too. Better for my personal draw speed.
This will go back into more regular rotation.
