wait 30 minutes and see. it should be untouchable. are you palming the top for a boost?
Yes, I’ve tried covering the top. It’s been on for a couple hours. Neither method helps. The heater is hot to the touch but I can touch it with my bare hand for a long time so it isn’t super hot. Is it possible I didn’t connect the wires properly, or that I’m using an adapter that isn’t strong enough?
If you bought the adapter that goes with it, you should be fine. From the pictures I have seen it should go from the heating element to a black converter and then into the mains power.
Are you using your own converter?
Did you buy the whole kit or just the heater?
I’m not aware of an adapter that goes with it. The heater has a wire that splits into two at the end, which you screw in to a big black laptop-type battery box, which then plugs into the wall (via an EU to US adapter). I bought a full Verdamper Reizer kit.
I was talking about the laptop black box.
It should be fine because the adapter reduces the current to 12v I think.
Have you tried another outlet? Sounds dumb but it helps sometimes. I have read about it in other threads. May be worth a shot.
If that does not work then I would imagine there is an issue with the black box or there could be an intermittent connection causing it to heat and cool.
Otherwise an email to the supplier...
Thanks. Yeah, have tried two other outlets. Didn’t help. I’m also thinking it must be the box. Any chance it could be that the adapter isn’t “strong” (I know nothing about electricity - sorry) enough and I need a different one? I’ve emailed the supplier and will see what they say.
If you have a volt meter, check what the output of the black box is.
Just heard back from the company I purchased it from. They say since it runs on 220 volts and I’m in US (110 volts I assume), that I need a voltage adapter to step up my outlet’s output. Any other US owners have the same issue and is there any particular voltage adapter folks recommend?
Any adapater should do as long as it gives 12 V and 1 Amp. If you can touch the glass without severe burning, it's not hot enough, and if it gets hot at all, I would doubt there's anything wrong with the heating element.
I have this one and use it quite a lot!
Thanks! I ended up buying this one in the 100W version. I assume 100W is enough? Will report back. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000MWAKVU/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
How does it work for you?
Smallest dose possible?
Still interested in owning one of these bad boys!
I REALLY love this thing. It doesn’t quite match the flavor of my Vapexhale Cloud Evo, but the sheer power of the thing is what makes it stand out. My Evo is a ballerina and the Verdamper is more like a stomp routine. You can easily fit an entire gram into the bowl, which will admittedly get close in flavor to the Evo. A dose as small as .1 gram has been fine for me too, but the flavor goes quickly with less flower. If you have easy and affordable access to flower and can afford it, I’d highly recommend the Verdamper. I saved a few bucks going with the Reizer (750 ML jar) version and am very happy with it (have tried a Deluxe and performance seems similar). Also, it was a bit of a hassle making this purchase from the US, and I had to figure out the voltage converter needs, but all pretty easy to figure out in the end, and I’d say well worth it.
