This is on my radar. I don't understand what the bowl is? Looks like its heading in the right direction... An all glass bowl would be amazing.

@Shit Snacks seems like its the cross of an elev8r and flowerpot... heavy, milky, thick feeling quartz convection with some conduction in the bowl depending on how long you leave it on the bowl? although im not positive without seeing the bowl.

@VGOODIEZ so there is a quartz core inside that steel shell? Am I correct in imagining this is going to be like an elev8r enail but streamlined all in one design?? (Price?)

Same question on VLF so here you go....

It's a similar design with similar materials. Both use a 16mm coil. Both use a quartz heater (although very different forms). Both are very open draw. That said they require a different technique and provide different results.

The Elev8R taste better in my opinion. The DeskPod milks quicker with the larger quartz mass and stainless steel housing. I rip my Elev8R hard with the glass beads but you don't need to pull they hard to make steam with the DeskPod.

Elev8R enail will be cheaper. The optional Stainless Steel housing on the DeskPod will be the most expensive piece of the kit and likely most significant reason for the price difference in the kits. I am sourcing a budget coil and controller option in order to get the Elev8R kit under $200 which will further widen the cost gap.

But lets me real, the DeskPod is gonna look 1000 times better with that nice stainless steel housing. And the benefits don't stop there. It's supposed to help performance and will keep the coil unexposed for safety.

I am trying to add images both directly and by link but neither are working?

No I have already checked that as I thought it was the issue. I have uploaded in the past since the conversion so :hmm:?

I'll figure it out.

Looking forward to seeing what the bowl looks like!

Do they have any plans to come out with their own enail handle too? I think it'd really complete the look, but if they don't I can imagine people would just pair it with the NewVape one.

I'm curious about handles, heat post, and stuff like that I could buy for my other vape. I hope they are decent price, I love newvape but some of their stuff is way overpriced but yet i feel the need to own it. Hoping they can fill the gap price wise and keep good quality

You can always fashion your own?
I feel the same about a lot of stuff.......some days it is cheaper to just buy it.

Haha yeah tools cost a lot to make the quality I'd want. I did fashion a handle. Pencils wrapped in tape wrapped in hemp *I have a handle now though* but I like my stuff looking clean and tidy. I'm pretty pumped to see what MPL have planned for accessories n what not.

Same here! Bring the updates 😎
I have no idea what is going on. I still cannot upload pics here. I'll try to get a video or something uploaded.

I received the production housing and new coil. Unfortunately the coil had the wrong pinout and fried my Auber. I spoke to Dan about getting the pinout set up to match the normal XLR pinout and he is working in it.

So I pulled the quartz heater off as well as the housing and swapped them to a 16mm DC coil. The fit is nearly identical to the coil Dan set but there is a small difference in how the housing fits. It's a tiny bit looser which may be a bit annoying but doesn't seem to impact the performance in a negative way.

In the past I was always focused on how much and how quick it can milk. It can do this as good as anything out there but now I'm focused in some lower temps to get a better flavor balance. More to come.

Nice! Despite the not so nice lol

Have you tried just uploading photos to imgur or imgbb and pasting the BB code here, or even just a link? Never have any trouble with that myself...
