    Hi guys! I'm thinking about buying a second vape while I wait for european VXC. I don't want to spend more than 250$ (200$ would be perfect). Right now I only own an Iolite that I usually use trough a bong. I would like that this vape will be able to be used through a bong, because I don't like dry vapor.

    My main options right now are WW and Solo, but I'm open to any vape that I can use through a bong.

    Salutations b0,

    I can understand why. :nod:

    Oh, in that case i'm pretty confident you'll notice some really weird "cases" around here!...

    [​IMG]

    See what i mean?... [​IMG]

    ...

    Be my guest!!

    [​IMG]

    I can do quite a few things with my HerbalAire, i suppose you could get some satisfying options of your own preference. That seems plausible to me in any case, since i believe the HA 2.1 (giberrish)... Etc. Sometimes i like to be wild)...

    Anyway.

    :hmm:

    Hummm...

    Ah, euh... No need for more than 1 with my HerbalAire so far but i'm relatively new in this universe but i feel like sharing my perception of the HerbalAire, while you should be aware there's been at least 210+ of those devices pictured on this web site and i stopped counting some time ago! I can imagine how it is to choose your very 1st vapo (i needed 3 months to make up my mind!), it may be a good idea not to rush it actually...

    Oh, it's now gotten back to me! Euh... I wanted to write that the HA to me is a LEGO-land locomotive engine: once set in motion you'll be driven into it, so to speak. But i could be awfully wrong, people's tastes vary enormously. Yet at least we know you need a water accessory to attach conveniently when required.

    The Arizer Solo being a portable i infer you're looking for a battery-powered device, correct???

    :peace:

    You really hate dry vapor, that's a lot of tubing!

    SIlver Surfer! you can use gg if you want to be handsfree.I put other end of tube in bong and just hold the wand works great.I hear the LSV is more of a portable version.

    I saw a lot of good reviews of it, but will like a more bong-friendly vape.

    The LSV has been described as a more user friendly SSV. Easy to use with glass and is right at your price point at 200.

    Here's a good vid of it in use by ilovebOObs

    Two things. One, is that if it's a waste, don't spend anything.

    Secondly, and in answer to your question............the LSV and for even more added moisture, try filling your bong with very, very warm water.

    On another note, isn't that water level a bit high on that Matrix.

    Salutations b0,

    Lets say i may have learned to appreciate properly moisturized cannabic vapour at some point.

    It depends what for. It turns out i got some enjoyable experience with this prototype below:

    [​IMG]

    There's tubing all right but it performs many functions: 1) Carry cannabic vapour, 2) Pour a slight amount of cold water vapour into the main stream... Then of course, sometimes the things we value invariably come at a price. But yeah, i guess i love moisture!

    :love:

    Perhaps boiling water might be a viable alternative to fog but i yet need to evaluate it, actually.

    Nonetheless, if one follows my links to investigate then he'll see that this was an experiment and looking above i'd call it a "modular" one at that. Now, please allow me to explain further. The configuration gave me "Direct Inhalation" at level #3 (Arizer Solo glass tube fitted with 1 screen, plugged into the HA crucible while that screen already sits on a partitioning glass-wall featured with a pair of openings - and i'd like 3 better because of drag force with only 2, by the way!), etc. So, a lot of particles appear to be captured by the combined action of my tube's angled shape and its screen + partition wall acting as a team.

    [​IMG]

    Level #3 can still feel too harsh though! That's one of those times suitable for having a drink, for example!

    :cheers:

    In some way, the pepper-like effect of potent cannabic vapour is something which isn't always enjoyable to everyone, despite the drink. We often read that coughing is an issue, etc. The "blending" effect of balloons renders them relatively constant when compared to a Direct Inhalation experience... The "ritual" differs significantly because a ballon has no wires. My little schematic makes it easy to understand that i can detach the bag from my moisturizing assembly to taste it more comfortably in my rocking chair if i wish, etc. As long as it's a short walk!...

    :p

    Moreover, to complicate matters, i'm convinced some thermalization caused by inflation occurs at level #4, maybe not exactly at room temperature but certainly towards it IMO. Also, i'll bet even more heat is being removed as the delay required to fill a bag gets more important.

    On top of that, if such normalized cannabic vapour still feels irritating then there are more options, one is Water Filtration (although rudimentary, equally works in tandem to provide Semi-Direct Inhalation mode): told you, LEGO-land!!

    [​IMG]

    :science:

    Finally... Thanks to the simple modular tubing system i'm getting Water Filtration (at level #6-7) as an other option but it turns out i much prefered Fog Conditioning (#8) alone - without it.

    Then i may have forgot a few permutations but you must have got the picture by now:

    Versatility

    Others may want to add reliability, etc. So, briefly put, that's what money can buy for 249.95 $ (USD).

    :peace:

    My mistake, English is not my main language. What I mean is that I don't want to spend more than that.

    Didn't saw the LSV was so cheap, vaporizes the meds evenly? For the solo I was thinking about buying it with the AV adapter to use it like a plugin vape, but I don't know how well it works with it. I really like to know exactly at what temp I'm vaping my meds.

    Edit: @Egzoset, awesome how much work in testing you're spending bro, but I think I will like a more "friendly not-lego" unit.

    +1. My Solo is a portable, home unit and water pipe vaporizer all at once.

    Ah.....sorry. Didn't realize that.

    Yup. Requires a bit of stirring between every couple of hits but no problems with an uneven vape.

    High again b0,

    I can understand if you don't like the LEGO-style but i thought it was clear it came as an option! Which is why i don't get the not friendly part... But that's me, it's OKay.

    Good day, have fun!

    :peace:

    Then you need the Volcano Digit, which isn't the style of vape you're looking for. Even the best temp displays on the priciest vapes will tell you wrong if you're using direct draw. Don't get hung up on precise temps. It's a waste of time.

    Yep, it was clear, but to use it with a bong, I will need more pieces that what I want. m0sh's pic describes really well what I'm searching, KISS principle (Keep It SImple Stupid lol, yeah I'm a programer)

    Anyone here have the Solo's power adapter? How well it works? It improves the solo (faster heating maybe?) or it works the same but without using the battery? I have been searching an here in Europe the best price for a Solo + power adapter is 200€, anyone know a cheaper place?

    Thanks to all for your answers! And sorry if I sound rude or have a lot of grammar mistakes, English is not my main language :)

    ...and worst: some vaporizers have digital displays but ZERO temperature sensors...

    :2c:

    Oh, then SOLO it shall be and now you've got a better idea what you can try with it...

    If you are waiting on the cloud, then go for the Solo. Small, cheap, hard hitting and you can connect it to glass.


    I have my SSV hooked up to glass. Really easy and effective...but it is a desktop unit, so not so handy if you want something more portable. Also above the $200 mark.

    I have the PA. It works amazingly - never have to stop due to dead battery! Heating does seem slightly faster and the temp also seems slightly higher.

    Get your Solo from Puffitup (code: SOLO160) or PlanetVape (code: SOLOHQ160) for $160.

    Your 2 choices mentioned in your original post are both good options. If you are getting a Cloud, I would say Solo so that you have a portable option. Grab the PVHES Turbo GonG from PlanetVape and you are out the door under $200. You will love it!

    Thx to all for your answers again, it seems like the Solo is the way to go (that video convinced me KON, thx for the codes too)

    I saw a lot of options for the GonG adapter in PlanetVape, wich one is the best option? PVHES Turbo GonG like happyTrails said?

    Now I will have to find a buyer for mi iolite :)

    Solo if you want a portable.

    lsv if you want a vape that will be a great backup to your cloud but isn't portable. :)
