Mine looks similar much of the time. I use a high temp and short draws, so I think that's why.hi guys, I am having some trouble with my mv1, she is hot spotting a lot and leaving a lot of green around the edge of crucible. this has been happening since I got it around 4th of July.
I bet it’s your pack if I was to venture a guess. I get those exact same type of hotspots usually after I stir. After I stir, the pack is never as good as initially. I find the mv1 quite maddening sometimes because it is very finicky with the type of material used and the pack. I only use the mv1 to supplement my other vapes.There is definitely something going on. I also own a mighty and I am using it natively and with dosing capsules similar to the ghost crucibles and the avb from the mighty is perfect. I noticed the plastic shredder that came with mighty shreds finer than the other shredder I used with my mv1. Do you think finer grind might help with my tunneling issues? I thought mv1 likes a coarse grind?
That's the wierd thing I never stir. I was always told that stirring is not necessary with mv1. I'm gonna try a different grind, I currently use a coarse grind from a budget shredder. My mighty came with a plastic shredder that shreds more fine gonna see what that does.
I followed all the advice from this forum for the mv1,
1) course or medium grind
2) long and slow draw speed
3) make sure no air leaks push cooling system down, make sure door is closed properly
4) do not tamp too much
5) loose pack not tight pack
6) make sure lid for crucible is on properly
7) male sure battery is fully charged
8) let herb air dry some before use
9) mouth piece is about half way out
10) make sure crucibles and lids are clean
It true when the mv1 is working it is the very best vaporizer but when it's not working, it's one of the worst. I just tried to use now nothing no vapor, its tunneling again. So I had to go to one of back ups.
Personally I like grinding the material to half the size that it appears in your pics. Not to say that it doesn’t work, but when it’s coarse like the way you have it, I can only get it to a light brown whereas when I grind fine, I can get it dark brown.Getting frustrated with the mv1. I did a full clean from top to bottom, assembled properly, battery fully charged and I made sure to pack the crucible correctly. Slow long inhales. Last night after just one or two inhales no more vapor. You can see in the pic the herb in the crucible is vaporized incorrectly, the herb in the middle is cooking way faster than the edges. If I keep going the middle will be charred. I went back to my mighty no problems, lots of vapor, perfectly vaped avb using dosing capsules. I started a ticket with ghost, I sent ghost more pics, and answered some questions the other day. I haven't got another response from ghost since. I showing both the ghost crucible and mighty dosing capsules. You can see the mighty is fully vaped no hotspots or unvaped herb. The mv1 is overcooked in the middle and undercook in the edges, this is not normal. In person it's much more pronounce than what the pics show. I really want to enjoy this vape but I'm lost at this point, just waiting for ghost to respond.
Great idea, hopefully, you will get sorted and back to happy vaping.I started a ticket with ghost
