    hi everyone, im looking for a desktop vape after owning a mflb, liking the wood look of the vb :rockon: how quickly can the vb deliver vapor? ive outgrown the box, it takes too long and the trench is just to small. i am a regular smoker and want to kick it all together, making the switch to total vape. thanks!

    As fast as most desktops, faster than many.
    It takes a couple of minutes to reach temperature.

    hey thanks for the quick feedback! a couple of minutes huh... thats even longer than the mflb lol... looks like i need to do a little more digging to find something suitable. i really dont want to wait that long for the thing to warm up cuz i know im gonna turn it on, and while waiting, walk away only to forget about it, and return to find that the whole bowl is toast :bang:

    Then leave it on all of the time, but turned down to minimum power.
    Then you will just turn it up to high and wait a much shorter time.
    True.... the Herbalizer can heat up and be ready in seconds, but it is also a $700 vaporizer.
    I have owned almost every desktop ever made.
    You can not get much faster!
    You may misunderstand how the unit works....
    It will not be toast, because your meds will be in a wand.... not "in the vaporizer chamber" like a portable.
    You raise the cool wand (and meds) to the heat source, and inhale.... instant vapor.

    ok gotcha, that makes more sense. will leaving a unit like this ON all the time shorten the service life?

    It is harder on the switch to be turned off and on 10 times in a day, rather than turn the power switch down to the lowest setting.
    Leaving any unit at top temperature will eventually wear out parts, as well as keep the tool hot.
    I leave a Vapor Brothers Original Vaporizer on at Vaping temp for an hour at a time, but when I leave the house, or even the room for an extended time... I drop the temperature to the bottom.

    That's great, thank you Vito for guidance! I second the "leave it on" method. I've said in the past it's fine to leave your unit on full blast, as long as nothing falls on it or blocks the air vents. All the parts in the vaporizer are rated to handle the temperature of use, forever. But it's true that leaving it on high will wear down parts faster, like the box and possibly the heater.

    From dead cold, it takes quite a few minutes to get up to temp for my liking. 5-7 min? I start on full power, then pull it back to 12 o'clock on the dial. The first hit sucks if I left it on high for too long, or was impatient. You need to let the glass around the heater come up to temp because it helps warm the air for your vapor hit.

    So leaving it on low sounds even better.

    I already announced that most of our stuff has been returned by the Police....
    We await the rest.
    BUT what we did get was meaningful to us!

    I'm on my second Vapor Bros. VB1 Hands Free box and love it. I gifted my first one to a friend with chronic back pain.
    Once she was comfortable using it, I started my search for the latest and greatest vape. I was missing my VB1 and after scouring the forum and doing a few thousand Google searches, I am now the proud owner of another VB1.

    @perfectcollection another nice thing about the Vb1 is by the time you prep your material, the box is warmed and ready to use. If forgetting to turn it off is an issue the soft blue lights on the bottom are a nice reminder.

    I don't vape large amounts. I don't weigh how much I put in the bowl but it's not much. I've never combusted or even charred my material.
    I would recommend the hands free box and adding a high temp silicone hose. It's more flexible than the standard hose that comes with the box.
    I prefer the stainless steel screens over the ceramic.

    Vapor Warehouse has excellent customer service. Before and after the sale.

    I'm really liking my Vapor Bros. VB1. Something that attracted me to the VB1 is that Vapor Bros. do emissions testing on their boxes. There's nothing in the way of the air path. No lead, glue, or anything toxic.
    This thing heats up fast, easy to use, it's efficient and I can get huge clouds if I want them.
    I've found that I can vape very small amounts and still get well medicated.

    I wish it would get more love here.

    A few years ago I was at a party for a friend and saw the coolest vaporizer. I never found out what it was but I've looked for it-especially when in a store since I know it wasn't bought on the internet. And here it is! Unfortunately I know have way too many vapes and especially too many plug in vapes to purchase another. Why is it so obscure even on FC? Wish I'd run into it before EQ and multiple logs.

    I agree 100% @little maggie !

    This is what I was saying in the post above yours. I preferred my first VB1 over my EQ and I'm loving my second VB1 just as much.. I'm also surprised there are only 25 pages dedicated to this vaporizer.

    VB1: Efficient, Fast heat up time, 100% pure ceramic heater, Meets RoHS standards, No toxins in air path, tested to be free of lead, mercury Can be used like a log vape, Can be used with water tools, Made in 'Merica, and the best part is, it's affordable.

    I am glad to see people jumping on board.
    This vape was one of the first, and then users became hypnotized by new units and innovations.
    The Vapor Brothers Box deserves more attention than it has gotten
    A very important point is that threads being short is not always a bad thing.
    The VB1 is the VB1, and there is not much more to say, except for us to praise it and compare our special techniques.
    The threads that are super long (in page numbers) are also filled with controversy, and often complaints.
    If looking for complaints... well.... "Let's move along, folks...there's nothing to see here!"

    I just got my VB and tried it out. I've tried to search for answer to my question but I don't have the patience to read 25 pages. I've been using small pieces of herb spread around the screen instead of grinding lately and it looks like that won't work with this. I ended up with some bits of herb floating in the tube near the screen.
    So what is the best grind for this? Will a standard one work? I have several grinders but most have a fairly similar texture other than the mflb and gr8tr.
    Also, I heated it with the dial at the top as the instructions say. What is your favorite spot for vaping?

    I start at top, and move down to about halfway or maybe a drop more than half.
    medium grind works great.. coarser than black pepper but a drop finer than oregano.
    All the way to oregano grind works well for me.

    I really like this. It's hard to believe how simple it is to use- even easier than a log which is hard to do.

    I start at the 12 O'clock position and go to the 1 O'clock position toward the end of the session. I have not needed to go hotter than that.
    The VB1 is very efficient.
    I use a medium grind. If the grind is too fine some material can get through the screen. Especially the ceramic screen. I prefer the stainless screens.
    Also wanted to mention that the VB1 works great with a water tool.

    It's almost too simple. :)

    More newbie questions. I tried lowering the temp almost to shut off. It stayed very hot- not safe to leave on given the limited space I have to leave it. Is that typical?
    So are the hot box like vapes takes off on this one?
    Is there any other equipment I should buy for it?- not sure what the easy attachment is?

    That's all for now. It's really difficult for me to find vapes that I can use without water. Right now it's this and the vapcap. And a tiny bit seems to last a long time.
    It's not one I see recommended to other fcers when they're asking for suggestions. Maybe people think all the newer ones are better. But they aren't.

    Are users finding the ez change helpful? I probably should explore the vb equipment I have before buying something accessories but just curious.
