If you find baskets let me know...I broke my handle a long time ago
Found all the zephyr parts you could need.
Does anyone know how to keep the washer from falling out that seals the basket to the lid? Its free of debris bit every time I open the lid it falls out and sometimes halfway through filling a bag it will pop out a little and leak. If it weren't for that it would be amazing
Mine used to do that after alot of use. They give you an extra one in the kit. Once i changed it, it worked fine. Also the Oil pad is great
I'm using my Ion tonight and having fun with it. My first bag was at 195C and I ran four total ending at 220C. Then I went and grabbed my bag of duff (mostly from the Cloud on noon) and ran a 2/3 full basket through it twice. Both bags were impressive and effective and got the duff noticeably darker, so I threw it out. I now have a usable routine for my duff...nitey nite!
The first bag tasted lame. As max has said forever...bags mix the bad taste with the good, yielding lame taste. But this unit has always impressed me with its temp control. Every time I start at 190 and end at 220 there is a very noticeable difference in the effect. I always get a nice sativa type high with the lower temp bags. And it heats up really quickly.

Sorry to pollute this thread with newbie questions, but I just got a used Zephyr and am having trouble with the valve system. I have attached a bag as shown in a youtube video, but I seem to be having leaks through the valve itself - not where the bag is attached, but where the valve is opened. If I fill the bag with air completely, open the valve and blow through it, the air is clearly escaping through the valve-button, not around the collar of the bag. Am I an idiot, is this a defective valve system, is this inexplicable brown gasket that came with supposed to be on the mouthpiece somewhere?
it sounds defective to me.
if that gasket is about an inch in diameter then it is most likely for the screen underneath the lid.
Edit: gasket not being installed was the issue, thank you Sticks.
So far my first impressions are that the vapor quality seems very reasonable, that it's a huge hunk of vaporizer, that the cord is too short, and that I like the whole basket system for its sheer convenience. I don't like how being off still means a big red light remaining on, but that's a nitpick. The pump is significantly faster than my Q or HA 2.2.
I couldn't agree more, cds. I've been using mine a little bit lately and really didn't like the taste. But what do you expect...it was my first bag since many months of using the Cloud, LSV and VAP2. I just finished using it with some eucalyptus I got form vapeworld for the first time. It's the only working digital vape I have at the moment so I went with this and even attached a whip to it at one point.
The big red light is an issue for me due to stealth...I unplug it when not in use. I was thinking this morning about how big it was as well, but my cord is plenty long. The basket system is very easy to use...just scoop it up, but I don't think it lends itself to efficiency (that statement made entirely without any factual basis whatsoever).
I do see myself using it more, however, as I start to play with some of the other herbs I've gotten.
That's pretty dope charliedontsurf! Might have to purchase one of those and try it with my Ion!
WHere did you find that???
Have not been on here forever...it is good to see the ole Zephyr thread is still kicking. Hell I think I will blow the dust off mine, my lungs could sure use the break
Well lookie here
Has anyone tried using the Zephyr Ion with the Volcano Easy Valve?
this unit is on sale again at vapenow
So what is the general consensus on best whip for this machine? My homemade whip is so good I want something fancy professional looking to feel fancy and professional
I know doubleposting is a nono but I just tried calling zephyr vaporizers hotline number and it went to the voicemail redirect after ringing for quite some time, I didnt really want to leave a voicemail for a simple matter like this. I noticed the site hasnt been updated for awhile and Bruce hasnt been online here for quite some time it appears.
So what whip works best with this vape? I NEED TO KNOW!
OK so 5 minutes later zephyr returns my call! they said in about a year they would have their own whip but its really kinda up in the air right now. I was recommended to use the vaporbox standard delux whip for now.
I really gotta give these guys an A+ all alround, this is the only thing that is as good if not better than the volcano. <3 it
