    Searched and coudn't find anything...

    [​IMG]

    I saw this popping up on a couple of vaporizer sites, including some awesome and well trusted ones such as Puffitup.com. Seems to be between 99 and 149 bucks.

    http://www.puffitup.com/Vapure-Genie-Hands-Free-Vaporizer-p/vapuregenievapure.htm

    Anyone had any experience?

    And there's apparently a version for blowing bags, too, between like 140 and 275, with a very fast fan speed: http://www.puffitup.com/Space-Vape-p/vapurespacevape.htm

    Most google searching turns up importer websites... And an ICP-centric online headshop. Weird world.. http://www.jimmyssmokeshop.com/juggalo.htm

    Nice find Charlie and nop never used. The only thing : it has the No2 look but it does not seem portable (I mean cordless). GonG heater and airpath is very appealing though!

    Does look like the no2 a bit, almost a hybrid of the No2 and the HerbalAire....with the remote feature of the EQ....now if only we can find out if its quality and usefulness fall somewhere above the no2, and up with the HA and EQ, etc.

    That bowl/wand seems way to wide to me, just look at how much weed he throws in there.

    Doesn't seem to produce that much vapor out of it though.

    Well, it took no time at all for this thread to go off on different tangents. Now that it's pared back to the Vapure, let's keep it on topic. Although the company does have a website - http://www.vapurevapes.com/index.php/ - it's not much of a site (doesn't even list the Space Vape as a model), and since the company apparently doesn't offer a warranty, I'd say that's more of a concern than criticizing their choice of model names. Puffitup does offer a 2 month warranty on units they sell, but no guarantee at all from the vape maker puts these vapes in the 'buyer beware' category IMO.

    The Genie and Space Vape are two different models, direct draw and bag fill, although they appear very similar and may be based on the same basic design, like the Extreme/V Tower. I'm sure that they perform acceptably, since I know that Randy at Puffitup will not carry crappy vapes, but I'd have the same worries about what they're made of and how reliable they'll be, as I would about the cheap eBay clones. Check youtube for a video on the Space Vape bag filler.

    My points were that their website is crappy, and they have the nerve to try and sell vapes with no warranty. With the eBay clones a Top Vapor=Digi Vapor=Noble Vapor-maybe more. You can't go by names. The meaning of the saying "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet" is that what matters is what something is, not what it is called. I do agree it's a good idea to see if your chosen product or company name is already taken, even if there's no danger of legal action, as iolite experienced with their first choice of product name- I-inhale.

    Now we're off topic again. You're welcome to start a thread about company/vape names. This one's about Vapure vapes.

    We made a youtube video demonstrating the Space Vape Here

    That should cover most questions about it. With newer brands we are very selective and do a lot of testing of the product. The Space Vape is fan based and is more powerful than some name brand attempts at forced air vaporizers. It has a slip proof pad on the bottom but it would be nice to see the Space Vape with a wider base to keep it from falling over, like the Extreme Q.

    Here are some quick facts
    - Its heat up time is about 3-4 minutes
    - The filling chamber is wider then most we have seen, this gives a lot of air flow through your herbs
    - The Space Vape is fan powered Forced Air, the air is brought in from the sides of this Vape
    - The Genie is a Hookah style vape with a glass heating element

    Any more info on the glass heating element? I'm curious, but can't find anything else online.

    I'm guessing some kind of glass tube heated externally to the airpath la Vapocane, VXC ?

    All glass airpath is very impressive at this price point.. Someone take one for the team and try her out!

    Randy, can the fan-based model be used with the whip? How cool does the bowl section stay while in use? Unwanted conduction vaporization (ala HA, in my humble opinion) pisses me off.

    Adding to the glass airpath gang, there's also the vapolution.

    The Genie heating element looks just like a Vaporite
    The Space Vape only uses bags, no whips

    Both brands are not top of the line vaporizers, however they both function well and it's great to see a good forced air vaporizer for only $175.

    Bumpity bump, what's the verdict on these? Still not much info online...

    Would this attach to a Pinnacle Hydrotube (14mm)?

    It's still being sold here and there. I was looking at the LSV and the Pinnacle but may take a chance on this. From what scant info I can find online there was a trademark dispute, the company's website is down as well so they may be no more who knows. Probably no warranty to speak of but it looks like a very good value that is 14mm GG compatible so it should work with the hydrotube. It has a glass combustion chamber like the LSV, no metal cartridges like the Pinnacle which I find to be a con.

    So from what I can tell the Vapure Genie is available as a whip-style unit, while the Space Vape is reportedly balloon only. I'm not sure yet if the Genie offers forced air, but it doesn't come with the balloon setup.

    So there's two versions of this out there, both are being sold from $95 to $299 but not widely, and there is scant information available about either one.
    :hmm:

    Okay so I'm taking a chance on this thing, found a decent deal on it at Wikipipe with the ground glass nozzle/adapters that the fleaBay seller wasn't including, which should let me connect it to a Pinnacle HT which I also got a decent deal on so about $200 later I can't wait to try this setup out forced air or not...

    Then I realize the potential flaw in my plan:

    [​IMG]

    Gonna have to be careful not to spill the HT :freak:

    I purchased a Space Vape on eBay it was at auction for $99 with buy it now for $129. I bought it now and when it arrived it was not as pictured. It was packaged from factory but looks like the Genie pictured at the top of this blog. Rather than complaining I found a Phantom 904 on eBay for $19.95 which is the black and orange piece that comes with the other version. Having looked at YouTube to learn how to put together Vape and Put bag on orange thing. Maybe now that it's legal in two states they can start putting instructions in the boxes. The Orange thing works better than the glass. Their are 2 versions out there and no difference in the packaging. It's like a box of chocolates you never know what your gonna get. Oh and although the base isn't that wide it doesn't tip over unless bumped into.

    No offense,but it worries me me that the only people to comment on this vape this year both only have 1 post.

    Usually one post people have an agenda to profit somehow

    im just excited to let people know it is a good product. and is not worth 300 if u can get it delivered for 60. Also there is an older plastic version I thought I was getting. It came instead as "2014 model" w glass pieces. i break stuff so I was hoping for plastic, but glass seems very good. has extra screens, bags, & a REMOTE w battery. I will say it is wobbly and tips ez. almost need a base that is wider. also it gets hot on stem, but there is a second stem above where bag stem fits. so do not handle main heated stem without care or it will burn u. .glad to see this blog and explore knowledge! peace BRO....bobby bottleservice.

    we bought 4 of these & love them. BUT, i'm having a hard time finding replacement parts. we accidently dropped one of the glass mouthpieces(that attaches to the bag) & it broke. anyone know where to get another the same size?
