    What's your favorite vape?

    I need a good daily driver...pax hurts my throat when I use it on the reg. I'm interested in trying something other than pax. Desktop or portable, doesn't matter! *bonus if it can hook up to water.

    I really love my new Herbalizer. I can honestly say it is one of the best vaporizers I have ever owned. Definitely the most expensive. :D People have easily hooked it up to water pieces too.

    Lotus was a complete shock to me that it would replace my Plenty as a daily driver.
    It is simply amazing, and a heavy hitter.

    Get the WPA adapter and you can drop it into any of your existing 14mm glass water pieces.
    Great value with this one, lots of punch for the dollar,

    after a good 7 months of daily use I can safely say my herbie wins my heart.

    the vapexhale evo comes in 2nd imo, but since you said bonus for glass. maybe it's the one for you!

    You need a torch though for the lotus right?

    EpicVape E-Nano.

    I also have a VXC EVO, but Nano is my daily driver. I could get by with nothing else at home, if necessary, and not be upset by it.

    Salutations Jman5280,

    Me too, actually i'm still thinking this over!...

    But i definitely got a good idea what i'd be eager to evaluate:

    In my dreams since this is only a fantasy of mine and i've got a few more piling up.

    :peace:

    You do need a torch, but do not let that lead you astray.
    Explore the Lotus thread, most of us stick with the cheap Honest ones.

    I can't compare it to a Herbie, but I can't afford one neither:)

    You certainly can :nod: - there are some water vids and pics on the thread - you should check them out :cool:
    The taste, you ask? ... Superb! It's the best of my 3 vaporisers for taste - I also have a Solo & Vapman.

    How much are you looking to spend? Do you need efficiency? Sharing or personal use only? Just how important is the taste to you?

    According to your other thread, you want clouds and a stable temperature. I am assuming that holds true with this tread?

    The more info. you can give about your habits and future desires, the better answers you will receive.

    I've been loving my LSV through water. Really like the glass on glass air and vapor path as well as the pure power of it.

    No water attachment yet but my new favorite and daily driver is the Elevape smartvape. Great little portable, but nothing can really compare to an herbie it seems. But if you want to go with a portable it's worth a look

    I want:

    ***1. Safe materials, nothing questionable in my vapor. No plastic or harmful metals.

    2. Useable with water (I have a few bubblers)

    3. Personal use mainly but would like to be able to share easily. Will be used daily.

    4. Easy cleaning

    5. Clouds

    6. Stable temp

    7. Reliable

    8. Price range is flexible, I will dish out for the best. But I also don't want to buy some crazy gizmo...I like simple easy use.

    I know I've already commented, but this sure sounds like the Herbalizer to me. :)

    Agent you still inhaling butane with the lotus? I looked at this a while back and that was a negative for me..

    The torch system concerns me to, I don't want to fire a torch every hit.

    That's a high price for a 2 year warranty...

    Anywhere to read up on what materials this is made if? The website wasn't to descriptive...

    I had the vaporbrothers and e nano in my selection because they are made of natural materials. The vaporbrothers has a ceramic element which seems real safe.

    I'm reading up on the LSV, seems similar but has a lot of metal in it...

    None of the metal is in the vapor path nor is any of it being heated up to vape temps.

    I agree, it is expensive.

    I copied this from the Herbalizer website:

    Temperature Control
    The Herbalizer’s 32MHz 16-bit processor is tuned to instantly regulate 300W of clean halogen energy.

    Purity & Safety
    Breathe easy, the Herbalizer was designed with automated safety features and medical-grade materials.

    Yeah that's what I read to. "Medical grade materials" doesn't provide much info...

    Isn't the screen metal?

    Yeah it is. I should have mentioned that, but I don't know of any vape that doesn't use a metal screen. That doesn't mean that it doesn't exist though.

    Jman~ Like Lwien said, there is no butane taste at all- just herb flavor:D

    As far as reliability goes, I absolutely love butane vapes. With the lotus, it is a block of wood and damn near impossible to break. Should your heat plate ever crack, it is covered by warranty but still very much useable until a replacement comes in. As I am often without electricity at festivals, this is the most reliable piece I have. The Hammer is equally reliable, and with both I don't rely on being near an electrical outlet or having to keep charged batteries.

    Well I'm going to be next to an electrical outlet and would prefer not to use a torch. There has to be some butane getting in somewhere...
