    Thanks to my friends here at FC I think the "best" vape purchases were the ones I never made :)

    But along the lines of the OP, best vape I have purchased, the Cloud. Worst vape I have purchased, the MFLB. But that really is saying something. It means I was able to avoid a lot of traps, thanks FC :tup:

    Edit: Still looking for the ultimate flower portable. Will it be Cera? Not sure but this time around, I'm going to be a spectator for a while.

    Best: I want to say that my Volcano was my best vape purchase, I really do. It's been going strong for 8 years now, it's run through a lot of chambers, it has been everywhere I've been in those years, and it's gotten SO MANY people stoned. Alas, I am smitten with my new LSV. It is so versatile, efficient, and effective. It's flat out fucking awesome and I highly recommend it.

    Worst: God damned MFLB... I just don't like it. I could never get a decent hit out of it even after trying every inhalation technique that one could possibly try. The hits that I actually did get had a horrible taste to them. When I did hold the battery in a little longer to try and get a better hit the load would combust. The load would combust because it basically had to be powder to work at all. If the load wasn't powder then it wouldn't toast evenly at all with small black flakes and bigger green chunks. The while thing was just a giant frustrating pain in the ass. Who wants to be frustrated and pissed when they're trying to relax and get stoned.

    The dichotomy of MFLB users has always amazed me. You've got people who swear by it, hell live by it. And others who just couldn't get it to work right for them. There doesn't really seem to be a lot of middle ground.
    (I'm pro-MFLB for the record)

    Maybe, if I'm allowed, I'll do a Christmas Giveaway of my MFLB. I'll have to message a mod and see what's up.

    I didn't enjoy my MFLB when I first got it too. It wasn't until I got the water pipe adapter (wpa) that I grew to love it.

    I still to this day dislike using the box without the wpa.

    I haven't ran mine through water but I could see this helping every time I get a decent size hit on MFLB I always want to cough from the vapor irritation, but I can dab .2 without a flinch.....

    Yeah, I had the same problem too. Apparently, there is a sweet spot where this doesn't happen, but man, I never found it.

    Being the worst does not mean it's bad, it just mean there are better options regarding certain factors.
    That said, I wouldn't wait for the Cloud with just an Iolite. ;)

    My best choice was the cloud; with the inhalater as a close second.

    My worst vape purchase was my first; a hand held peice of shit that used a torch flame and a ceramic tube. Think it was called the VP-600 or something like that.

    I have only ever owned two vapes, so here's my thought's -

    My worst purchase - Vapureyes.
    I asked the Mrs for this vape as a Christmas present a few years ago, before we had all these lovely vapes to choose from we have now.
    It was a lightbulb vape that worked but not all that well...the thing had to be on for ages to get hot enough to produce wispy vapour.
    It got me started though...even although it took me a couple of years after receiving it and first trying it to pull it back out the cupboard and give it a second go....it was still the same...lol...so I sold it and purchased my current vape.

    My Best - Extreme EQ.
    I love it, it's a great vape.

    I also have a TET Cera on pre-order so who knows, will the EQ be moved into second place when the Cera arrives ??

    Pretty much this. I really like the MFLB but it's just the least effective from the 4 I have. Not sure if my SSV is actually the best but it was certainly the first and, as others have said in this thread, it was the vape that got me into vaping. Really a big Arizer Extreme-Q fan too :)

    Well, don't have/haven't had that many, so not too much to choose from:

    a) Best - my HerbalAire 2.1 I'm in LOVE with it! (can't get to grips with Direct Draw, I use bags only)

    b) In-betweeners:

    MFLB - use it on the go, but don't touch it indoors. Don't LOVE it, but don't dislike it either, it serves its purpose which is to keep me baked on the go.

    Top Vapor VP210 - think this is some chinese POS. BUT, it got me started in the vape scene, and, once you got used to it, it's really not that bad at all. Temp control is sorely lacking but, once used to it, it's GREAT as a party vape (others share the bags it blows, while I suck away on my MFLB, lol)

    c) Worst - my DIY lightbulb vape, made from emptied out bulb and plastic bottle top. This was really shitty, doubt I ever successfully vaped from it, I think it combusted - always, lol Still, got me going for a few days until I got the VP210 set up and going.

    Really? The MFLB is further down your list than the PuffIt? I find that hard to believe.

    My MFLB is quite low on the list as well, although its been signed by half a dozen or so musicians hence the only reason I keep it around. I can't put half a trench through it without it smelling like I dabbed half an ounce. I've cleaned and cleaned and cleaned and cannot get it to not smell. So it sits in a mason jar like an alien specimen.

    I actually got very medicated using the Puffit... just hated the taste. I tried for months with the MFLB using different draw techniques, different batteries, i even sent my MFLB in for warranty and got a new unit, and i still could only get a light "buzz" when i used it. i got more frustrated than medicated with the MFLB
