    @HillaryClinton I have no doubt they would hook it up they have always been good to me on this forum. My understanding however was it just simply was two leads to solder. On mine they are pretty big contacts so i could easily swap it out w/my iron and solder sucker.

    But that is besides the point anyhow, the old box keeps on kicking anyway to this day. All I have done is clean the whip regularly and have swapped out the hose a few times but no other issues. Best vape I've ever owned/used, and I love going hands free and doing some deep breathing for a bit while chilling at the desk :sherlock:

    has anyone else used the mini wand? Standard or the ceramic one (ezchange?) Will it work with a j-hook? I know changing the screens on standard units are a bummer, but I have not had to change mine even since the summer of last year. A little soak in iso and rub it with a q tip lightly works incredibly well, followed by real hot water. The water takes a while to melt and wash everything off but it does for sure.

    I have been doing good with the regular one but I bet with the mini I could get 2-3 hit extraction and smaller loads, which means fresher taste overall. And tolerance would adjust.

    I have been running my vaporbros at about 12:45-1:15. Now that it is getting warmer I am slowly dialing it back. I want to try turning it all the way up, but worry about damaging the unit or causing combustion.

    I use my vaporbros pretty much every night now. I am really liking the higher temps. I just vape until the taste goes away and dump it out for later use for other stuff. I can do .12-.16 in about 3-4 draws with the standard wand at 1:00 on my dial.

    How long do most folks inhale for? I do 20-45 seconds (usually 25-35) but I am sure it depends on temperature. I also rotate the wand while drawing and pulse a little bit too. Not sure if it does help but it seems like it does. Could be placebo effect. :)

    My typical inhales are around 12 seconds I believe.

    I haven't used my VB in probably 2-3 years. I broke the wand and never replaced it. Then I got into portable conduction vapes. Just got a new whip in from vapornation and man, I really did forget how awesome this vape is. There's no replacement for convection.

    Hello ALL, Do you want to change the temperature range of your vaporizer? Sometimes people want to turn theirs down. Others would like the top end temperature a little hotter. There are two tiny trim-pots on the electrical board inside the bottom of the vaporizer. So are some high voltage tracks, so please only attempt this if you are fearless and/or electrically minded.

    These instructions used to be shared only with people who asked. If you're handy, you can do it pretty easily. Takes some experimentation. Instructions are here.

    If you blow up your vaporizer doing this, please remind us that you were just following our instructions- We won't consider your warranty void.

    I miss my Vapor Brothers Herbal vape.
    It was my go to vape for teaching new vaporists.
    We are supposed to get our property back soon.
    Among our things are a few of Vapor Brothers units.
    The unit is so well made that a dozen cheap and crappy companies attempted to copy it's style and shape. Imitation is the highest form of flattery.
    DON'T be fooled though!
    This patient has a portable (a Haze)
    She wanted a Desktop unit.... and she tried many!
    [​IMG]
    It is clear that she picked the right unit!

    Just received a shipping notification for my order which includes a VB1 with the standard wand, a steel pick, and a mini wand. I own an Easy Vape which I bought from a local head shop for $60. It kept me satisfied for a few months; being new to vaporizing, I didn't really know what to expect. I also knew nothing of the Vapor Brother's and box-styled vaporizers in general. And this was at a time when this forum was unknown to me. Then I accidentally broke the heating element and it's been collecting dust in a corner ever since.

    So it only made sense to purchase the original box-styled vape (the Vapor Brothers) and I'll eventually supplement it with a hydrator. VAS has struck again. :razz::rockon::leaf:

    If you used the EZ Vape with success, then the Vapor Brothers Original Box style vape will blow you away!
    Congrats~

    @Mescalero314, I love my Vapor Bros. VB1. I prefer it over my Arizer EQ, which is an amazing tool as well, but the simplicity of Vapor Bros box makes it better for me.
    Did you get the hands free version?

    Good luck and enjoy!

    My first vaporizer was the vapor bros and it was the best session vape I have owned to date. I could pack a decent size load and sip/rip it for entire movie sittings! This was pre FC days and the vape I used to quit cigarettes but not combustion of herb, mainly because I was a young and on the go. Once I decided to get a potable for the go I found the glory of FC!!:o:bowdown:

    I can also agree that vb is much smoother than the eq!

    I found out I made a great first desktop purchase and when it was time to pass it along, I found a perfect source @Vitolo! I wish I had more funds to donate every vape I sold, but can't think of any better person to find the appropriate new home for the vapor bros box! Thanks for all the amazing work @Vitolo :rockon:

    This thread will always remind of my first vaporizer and the new doors that opened since!!


    :peace:

    That was a sweet unit you donated too.
    I remember it well.
    It's assigned patient passed away, and the family returned that unit to me one week before the raid... which means your unit should be coming home soon, to find itself a new patient.
    I will of course put her through the paces before she moves on to a second home... just to be certain she is as she was.

    I am waiting with all of my patience for the police to return our property as the Judge has ordered.
    I want very badly to post a couple of performance videos with the Original Vapor Brothers Vape.
    After the raid, we in a fit of paranoia deleted our vimeo channel and that was where the Vapor Brothers videos were. Sometimes if the music is of a restricted by copyright nature we switch from youtube to vimeo or dailymotion.
    Watch for some serious Vapor Brothers Box vape action here soon.

    Thank you. So a hose adapter that has an OD of 9.5mm would not be a good idea?

    Your Welcome. :)

    You can try, but probably not a good idea.

    It's been a while since I've used this vape, unfortunately, but I've been using mine again lately and I still Love it! I use it different ways, and this is an old pic, but I almost always use it pretty much like this..
    [​IMG]
    More than enough power! This thing is a Work Horse! Tastes great IMO and can give you any type of vapor you want.. It's straight forward, capable, and reliable... and it's a staple in this industry.

    I know someone who supposedly has been building a vaporizer museum, but they still don't have one of these yet! :disgust: ;)

    I sold some of my premium vapes and kept my Vapor Bros. I can't part with it because I can get consistent, flavorful clouds that get me rocked!

    HI YES confirmed, 7.5mm / .295" ID. It's basically a 1/4" ID hose enlarged a bit to get better airflow over its length. Because the good hits happen when there's no restriction. If you need to fit the hose onto a larger OD, our silicone hose might do it. The silicone version has the same ID, but more stretchiness.

    Who is making the museum @Buildozer ?? You heard on FC? That needed to happen for sure.

    I .... according to the attorney will be getting all possessions back this week.
    That includes 133 vaporizers.
    Combined with the 29 I have at home right now that equals 162 vaporizers.
    8 of the units are Vapor Brothers vaporizers.
    While all the same they are in a variety of woods, and have stories that accompany them, and once returned a number of them will be placed in the community
    While a dozen of them are Aromazaps, they all fall into different areas of Zap Developement.
    Once items are returned this week.... I would like to declare an Existing Vaporizer Museum.
    That is what my home was before the raid.
    @vaporbrothers and @jon-no-h, visted my home, and can attest to the museum-like caliber of the units at my home (ALL functioning, and many the Non-production BETA units of each).
    And of course... I promise a wonderful array of Vapor Brothers Vaporizer videos and testimonies!

    Not a literal museum.. I probably should've put more emphasis on supposedly :lol:
    With the deep fryer and cold beer it's really closer to a vaporizer carnival than anything, figuratively speaking..

    An actual vaporizer museum showing the progression of vaporizers, both in general and brand exclusive, would be something awesome to see.. They definitely couldn't qualify as one w/o a VaporBros section... I'm skeptical that a supposed vaporizer carnival could even qualify w/o one :hmm: it's sliding by for now...

    Glad to hear it Vito! Good luck on a smooth return.. I'll keep a look out for your videos :cheers:
