    The Splinter is on demand after an initial 5 second heat up per session. Does not get much better, its a cannon and my only complaint is it’s not very discrete by the time you place the Splinter on a Box mod and add a stem, also not very pocketable.

    That is on demand, the difference between a log vape like e-nano is the log is not instant as you must wait for an initial heat up from cold. Splinter taking 5sec to preheat is not the same and is still considered instant, I just draw slow at first on RBT vapes so I don't even consider preheat time at all. Most on demand pure convection is also essentially instant, under 10sec warm up is instant to me at least... Session vapes take 20-45sec or more even, so they are rarely instant... And torch vape like StickyBricks is instant, VapCap not quite...

    Yes this is common for pure convection on demand, you must hone technique to get an even extraction and often need to stir. I will tell you that the Tetra P80 is a fantastic option for this, since everything is set up for you out of the box was consistent temp control and the heater also allows for quite even extraction with minimal technique. Stem based vapes are also easier and purer, though less portable... I do own or have tried almost every on demand pure convection vape available, these are top-tier!

    I completely agree, I just like to make clear there is a very minor warm up after which its a beast.

    If you want to dose smaller amounts, vapcap n sticky brick jr
    If you care about low temp flavor, milaana and ghost mv1 fits the bill
    If you want go big loads and rips, evo vapexhale and sticky brick maxx

    For desktop I love my Ditanium, and for portable I dig the heck out of my Elev8r and Vapwood Timber Elite.

    One thing i am looking to avoid is using a butane light to heat stuff up.

    I just want to grab a unit, stick some bud in, and within 20 seconds take a toke them put it down, then maybe pick it up again and take a toke ( on demand so it doesn't burn away )

    I want to avoid unregulated too and anything that looks like it has parts that might give off fumes ( rubber oil rings, aluminium, plastic etc )

    Ideally it should not be too big. No point lugging around a brick with me. I want portability, discrete.

    At this rate i might just make my own LOL

    Vapwood Timber Elite. It's regulated, on-demand, no butane, no plastic (wood, glass and stainless steel), and does exactly what you want; only faster. I got mine a couple weeks before Christmas and haven't put it down since.

    On demand and regulated requires a fair amount of power and electronics which does not lend to small and discrete. I know of no on demand regulated vapes which rate both discrete and pocketable.

    I agree with @beyond6strings if you can wait for a Timber Elite, it’s a great vape, but it’s not pocketable. Discrete, meh.

    Hi i see on their website TIMBER i don't see a TIMBER ELITE. Want to verify with you thats the unit you are talking about

    You mention timber elite coming out but guy above says he has his? Are we talking about the same thing here?

    Only downside to these large wooden vapes is they are large. so damn chunky. I like a slick looking, smaller vape but doesn't appear to be much out there on the market except the grasshopper and that appears to have issues according to folks on this forum and elsewhere. The timber elite looks like a person is sucking on a wine bottle its so damn big. lol

    As for the milaana, I've scratched that off my list. "The glass stems are good for retaining at least some vapor flavor, though combustion remains a constant risk, so it’s a challenge to get through a session without burning the herbs. " Seems to much like that magic flight box. Lack of temperature control and possibility of combustion.

    So far, despite the few downsides to the ff2+ im still leaning towards that

    I got the ff2 for on demand micro hits.

    In the end it has been my least used vape ever and I wouldn't recommend it.

    The solo 2 became my daily driver and will remain that way until on demand tech and batteries get improved.

    Even though the solo 2 isn't on demand it still became my daily driver... Because the on demand vape I have vapes didnt cut it.

    By the time I could get a good hit from my ff2 (convection warming up the bud enough to vaporize) I could already be puffing on my solo.


    I wouldnt reccomend the ff2 to anyone. And the batteries are really bad.


    Also the ff2 heating element is a metal coil inside of a ceramic dish with a ceramic lid that the ff2 sits above.. I took mine apart to prove that the opening of where the heating coil enters the ceramic is open to electronics. (Not very open but not completely closed.)


    And before anyone chimes in and says my issues with the ff2 aren't cause by me not knowing how to use it. I've been in the game 10+ years now and love manual draw vapes... Except this one.

    Excellent. Yeah, that's what I mentioned to someone about the heating coil is open, meaning users are sucking in whatever fumes comes off it. (And overtime of heating up, cooling down that element will degrade). Now they can say its food safe super alloy but that doesn't mean anything to you or me. The video online showing someone open this clearly shows the coil inside the ceramic is open to the electronics and the user who is sucking on the device.

    I guess that's the upside to some of the conduction units, the chamber is being heated and often doesn't have holes in it, so as long as its ceramic and you have a glass mouthpiece, you shouldn't be inhaling any heating element fumes.

    I used to own the Arizer Air.

    Can you look in your solo 2 and tell me if the chamber is glass, ceramic or steel, and does it have any holes in it? Thanks kindly. I did look at Solo 2 but a few things bothered me on it.

    Not sure the heating path is isolated in solo 2 so heat goes over the electronics?

    The only downside to arizer is the smell. Damn thing stinks up the house as its not on-demand.

    BTW original Air and Solo and Solo 2 at least all have an non isolated air path, so open to electronics and heating elements too... And pretty much every electronic conduction vape has silicone somewhere exposed even if heating element and electronics are not... Tough market!

    Thanks for the link. Yeah, just as one reviewer said, it's exposed to the circuit board so chances are you breathing in fumes from there. Not much but a little over time could lead to health issues. I think there should be a breakdown for every single model on the market so we and see how they work, whats used and each part should be mentioned so we know what metal we are dealing with.

    Yes, its hard. Someone needs to think outside the box and look at ways to give people what they need, but also ensure they aren't breathing in anything from metals, electronics and such. I think having something you could flip into place which was glass might help, or some glass that can withstand extreme heat so that can be the chamber.

    Silicone rings can't be good.

    Lol, i won't. Heard someone here say they dont support that model anymore. Thanks for the heads up.

    Might be worth while buying a few parts, and going into a wood shop and coming up with my own unit. At least that way I can see what

    I like how the fierce is shown broken down. Now that has an isolated path and is away from the electronics. Certainly better than the FF2+ which is exposed. the fierce doesn't look as if the battery or electronics are anywhere near the inhale path https://blog.puffitup.com/2019/06/fierce-vaporizer-teardown/

    Any convection snob or flavor chaser should own or at least try the Splinter and Splinter Z for sure. The low cost of a Splinter V1 or V2 sets such a high bar for big on demand convection hits without a torch. Pair one of those with a forty dollar mod and a cooling stem and you have what everyone must have hoped cuter portables like the Firefly 2 would deliver. Shame it's too awkward to be truly portable. Happily we can own more than one vape.

    I would think that with a P80 mod and a nub stem from @funkyjunky it would be "portable" but not too discrete.

    I think the only portable fully on demand convection will be the Nomad
    Splinter V1 also can be portable if u buy it in 60$ and it's not pricey this way

    You been following the Tinymight? A bit chunkier than the Nomad but regulated and less of a posh princess for pocket carry.

    Sorry I was writing from my cell so it has been a short answer.
    True portable , small device, which enters to a Jeans pocket,

    Would you take your TP80 or Splinter Z to hiking in mountains for example? that's my point
    and sorry man for the short answer, won't leave these shorties if i'm in hurry

    P.S: the TinyMight is also a good option, right. sorry

    PS2: By leaving my last comment, I meant smth like FURY2, for being truly portable. that the fear factor of breaking is minimal

    Y'all get weed vapes in prison now? There's hope for this country yet! =P

    Off topic but I use a predictive keyboard called SwiftKey that's free for Android and iOS. The longer the word the easier it is to type and the less accurate you have to be. I prefer it to Gboard. SwiftKey also learns how you type so nowadays I can type "I rec" and not only will it suggest "recommend" without me even getting to the first "o", it'll proceed to suggest "installing the Herbie ecigprofiles" one word a time so I needn't input any of the letters for those words

    Yeah lol thanks for proving my point, which was mainly that the Nomad is certainly NOT the only one... And I personally would not use mine that way for a variety of reasons (for one thing, fuck jeans and tight pants!) But I have used my Milaana out and about like this (not my fancy exotic one though!) plus MistVape Impcognito, Fury, Eden, and several others I'm sure...
