Tom,

Thank you for the order from 420EDC.

This is the newest version, the Hopper IO. It is not the OG Grasshopper.

We'll work on getting your order out today. I will be away from the computer for the next hour or so working in the garden before the sun decides to come out.

Best,


Mark

It’s been 3 weeks since I ordered 6 batteries from HL and nary an update aside from the auto order confirm email. I will dispute the charge with my credit card company next week if I don’t hear from them. I almost made the transaction with my bank but decided the credit card company would be more sympathetic and easier to deal with if I go the dispute route. If I never get these batts then it’s just a matter of time before all my viable HL batts last. And then nothing - crickets. My Hoppers will cease working and the roller coaster of a ride since ‘16 will end. Oh well. There are other players in the market which is becoming more crowded and mature. :peace:

Sorry to hear that I got mine from 420EDC but I did try to contact Hopper at both sites many times and no reply at all I am hoping it is a good vape it is mostly for my collection but I have never had such bad customer service at just asking questions NO REPLYS at all

They haven't singled you out - this crap has been going on for years!
And you will not get any service on the new device, btw. Again, it's not just you, nobody gets service!
That ship seems to have sailed.

That’s a shame

@Vaporific Have you checked the status on their site? Same happened with me, I emailed them and received no reply. However, they updated the status to shipped at around week 4 of ordering. They sent an extra battery though 😂.

Still shows In Progress status, just like the prior 2 orders which were 2+ years ago (my IO and another batch of batts which I received - so much for accurate order tracking). It’s a wonder they’ve lasted this long operating like this. I’ll send them an email today and rattle their cage. To be continued (or not)… :peace:

EDIT Maybe I’ll receive an extra IO for my troubles (not!) :rofl:

The old io is in it's 24th month (anniversary date is three weeks from now) and working great, except for one serious problem. I usually have to click it 10-15 times to turn it on or off. I bought a used purple io clicker from another forum member and it should arrive in a day or two. I'm praying it works correctly on my SS body. More to follow.

It should work. I’ve swapped them out before. :science:

Somebody's io is sporting a new purple top.
The new (used) purple back end works great. I needed a used back end ($50) and a new battery ($18) in the last two months. Now my little friend clicks and functions like brand new. Life is good. 🥹

I bought a gently used bronze anodized body from someone on here, so I have a mismatched IO (Ti) now too. It’s been working well. I bent the heating chamber trying to unscrew it from the body and couldn’t bend it back perfectly and the frontend was hard to screw on and off. The replacement of course solves that problem.

Over the weekend I travelle to another state which recently legalized rec but it’s not selling rec yet. I brought my Hopper IO with me while at a craft fair. I was able to quickly sneak a few draws away from crowds and it was a pleasure to use. I’ve always loved a Hopper for quick, easy and, occasionally, stealthy hits.

Still no word from HL about my batt order from last month. Later this week I’ll decide whether to dispute the charge. Such a shame. :peace:

Nice. Glad it worked out for you. When the Hopper works it’s amazing. It produces vapor instantly and can finish a bowl really quickly if needed.

The Hopper is perfect for that! Instant vapor, can take quick hits and be on with your day. :sherlock:

Thanks for selling it to me.

I can't believe how much better a lightly used clicker feels. Very crisp. Maybe I can make this last another two years.......

My batteries and backend are new, the heating element has always worked great, but might be the weak link.
Umm, it wasn’t me who sold it to you but hope it lasts more than two years 😂

Tomorrow it will be a month since I ordered six batteries. I anticipated this would happen so upon making my purchase, I gathered everything I would need to dispute/cancel the charge to my card. I don’t think I’ve ever done that for any company before. When I step back and consider my purchase, I think I have issues…:lol:
