so does anyone know of a place that still sells the VaporStar??
Everyone Does It should have them in stock by now if what they told me is correct. They said they'd get more in on 9/1. But don't go by whether the EDIT page says it's in stock or not, because it wasn't correct when I placed my order. I'd email them first to verify.
Here are a few more shops online that I found, but I have no idea whether they're any good or if they have it in stock.
Email sales@Dieselvapors.com they have them they are limited so call them, they are located on the east coast. Oh yeah they just sell the bowl no glass.
I like the vaporstar but i wish vaporgenie would make a bowl for water pipes like the Vaporstar but use the heating element from the Vaporgenie.
It turns out that the package was from EDIT, so I got the bong, but no VaporStar today. Hopefully it'll arrive this week though, considering the package has been in the US for a couple days according to Royal Mail tracking.
cool, thanks ppl
any new vaporstar's user rewiew?
Well yeah I should of posted sooner. I have not really had the best chance to put it through a proper test. The water pipe that i Bought it for was a really old Illadelph that my friend broke on the way to the freezer to put ice in it. He smacked the joint on my bar and crack it. I taped it up and we tried it out. It seems to have an air leak so it didn't work to well. Then I broke out a Water pipe that i had not used in 10 years, it is very rare and the artist is no longer allowed to blow glass so I promised I would never use it but i did just to try out the vaporstar. Well the problem is that 10 years ago I emptied the water out raped it up in bubble rap, never cleaned it. Before trying to use the vaporstar i had to clean the old water pipe. I use a popular cleaner and it got every thing but what was on the stem. The stem is the kind that is set in and sealed with a rubber grommet. Not wanting to rick breaking my loved I decided to try it out with a dirty stem. I used the vapor star for a day like this. Besides the nasty taste from the moldy water pipe I would have to say the VaporStar works pretty good. I have found even with one day of heavy use and practice you will still burn a little bit. I think with a week of practice you can get better, thats how long it took me to master the vaporgenie. I stopped using it because I need to buy a water pipe to use it with, I bought the vaporstar in the US from dieselvapors.com they do not sell the glass, they said that the glass from vaporstar was shitty and that they were just selling the bowl to people who already have a glass piece. He recommend i try shivas for a small water pipe with a carb hole. I think I might see if they can make something custom for the vaporstar.
So is that complaint :/. What do they expect for the price? I got the little 'micro pipe' and it works great. It's actually a mini bong called the 'Mini Traveller'. You take out the two glass pieces that make up the bowl and insert the Vaporstar. It cost me about an extra $10. I thought it was a great deal. The only places I've found that sell the Traveller sell it for more than twice that price plus shipping. The Vaporstar is great in that it can be used with various glass pieces, but if you have to go out and buy a bong for $40-50, it's not so great a deal.
No I wouldn't say its a complaint. The only reason I bought the VaporStar was to use it with my Nice Illadelph water pipe that has been getting neglected since I started Vaping. I own an Extreme, SSV, VaporGenie, and VaporStar. I do prefer using an electric vap but take the VaporGenie everywhere. The Vaporstar was an Item That I was only going to use every now and then with my water pipe until it broke. You don't need a nice piece to use the Vaporstar, and what I mean by a nice piece is a pipe that has allot of artistic work on it, something that could be seen as art. I always like high end artistic glass and lab glass and missed using it. I would ONLY recommend the Vaporstar to someone who is looking for something that will allow them to use there water pipes to vape, for everyone else I would recommend the vaporgenie as low cost butane powered vap. I also think that the Heating element on the Vaporgenie Disperse the heat allot more evenly that the Vaporstar. I tried using the Vaporstar bowl with the Vaporgeine top and it didn't work that well. The problem was that it dint get that good of a seal by just siting the vaporgenie top on the vaporstar bowl. Thinking about contacting vaporgenie or Dieselvapors and see if I can get just the bowl with the thread so I could insert it into the Vaporstar and screw on the vaporgenie top. I think that would work awsome!
thanks for sharing your thoughts so fast....we do not really need a full rewiew everytime...... bare experiences from a multi-vapes vaporist are really appreciated indeed!
Just to be clear, I was talking about dieselvapors when I referred to 'complaint'. Calling something 'shitty' is always a complaint in my book.
ya thats what i was saying earlier, we need something thats a halfway, a bowl with a vaporgenie heating element that will go on a bong... that woud be a great vaporizer, assuming there wasnt plastic and shit in it
ok, i see how well the vaporstar works on a small pipe, but how would it work on a larger one, like 12-18 inches
like, you applly the flame in bursts to load up the chamber, then rip it
i can see how it would be impractical to hit a larger bong with one application of the lighter, it would probably make it easier to burn
but has anyone tried this? it seems like it would be more fun than just hitting a little bong
Nope It'll rock a 18 just fine. It fill the whole thing with vapors.
I have both the Genie and the Vaporstar and prefer the latter. Definitely pluses and minuses to both, but I've found that the Vaporstar works well, and if the Genie's filter works better, it's not a big enough difference to me to swing my vote. I use the Vaporstar with the Micro Pipe ('Mini Traveller' bong), and although it's not as much of a pocket vape as the Genie, it does easily fit in various pockets. I think, for a lot of users, the winner between these two would come down to personal preference (ergonomics wise) rather than performance.
ivr heard of using the vaporstar without a glass pipe or tubing, any merit to this? seems like you would be inhaling some pretty hot air
otherwise, just put it on the end of a length of whip tubing and it becomes more portable
I would not Recommend this. It is very hot. I have used a water bottle to make a quick pipe to use the Vaporstar with and if you get it to seal right it can work well as a portable because you can get a water bottle anywhere.
I think VapeNow has a limited quantity of the VaporStar bowl-only (the wooden part that fits in the glass), but they aren't listed on the site yet. I had to use the contact form to get in touch with them about the
VaporStar, but I did get it with 2-3 day Priority Shipping which was sweet.
I have ordered & paid vaporstar + micro pipe from official website January 28, 2009 - 26 days ago and it did not arrive yet... I hope the delivery was not being lost or something.
You should contact Dave at Vaporstar to check on your order. My experience is that he's good about replying to emails. I remember getting mine in about 10 days, so if your order has shipped, there's a problem somewhere. This should also be a delivery you have to sign for. If the mailman can't get a signature, he should leave you a notice that it can be picked up at your local post office.
Finaly.. my vaporstar with micro pipe arrives and I am soooo happy. .. I go try it in a minute, actually.. the micro pipe is really coool and so small.
so my first vaporizer-equipment looks like this ..
I would like to say THANK YOU to max, who have helped me choosing a vaporizer .. will post some mini review of vaporstar later .. take care
Glad to help Bananiq. I like the micro pipe too. It's not really a pocket vape like the Genie, but it does fit in a pocket, even a shirt pocket.
I see you have the MixnBall Classic too. Nice little grinder.
Well, I have tried vaporstar enough. Bottom line is it works perfectly; it vaporizes herb effeciently and quickly. Im very pleased. BTW: I love the little 'wood-smell' while hitting... it reminds me nature
However, I have broken my micro-pipe glassware yesterday .. because of extensive vaporstar testing with my friend fortunately, I have still my molino bong . .so I made vaporstar-kingsized
