Hey guys, ive had some practice with my unit, and I noticed the heater might be a little off center. My bowls hot spot on one side, leaving the other side green if I dont spin. Even when I do spin it is hard to avoid.

Is this part of the beast? Perhaps It can be mitigated by changing my technique.

Edit: to be clear, its always on the same side of the device when I turn the stem

pretty standard, the heater inside will typically lean to one side. hotspotting in general, seems to happen to all pure convection vapes. you can kinda mitigate it by playing with technique - sometimes a lower temp with a slower inhale will heat things more evenly. i just resign myself to either stirring, or more lately - just empty the bowl out and reload it, totally stirs it heh

Im aiming for big hits so I guess rotating the stem is entirely inevitable if you want to be even. Now I know what people mean when they say the Milaana can be either 0 or 100, and that it can be difficult to find a middle ground

The Milaana 3 is the fastest and for me the most prone to hotspots. I'm surprised folks have so much success using it with water. I suspect I might be a temp stepping softy compared to many RBT devotees. I end up using my Milaana 1s and 2 more and I think it's because my Splinter Zs have me used to keeping the heater engaged for the whole hit. With my Milaana 3 there's a lot of time spent off the button for best results

It's still early, you just need a lot more time with it! I honestly have no trouble getting even extraction from my Mi3, but I have a lot of experience having beta tested the original and owning a few in between of course... So yeah keep at it, you'll get it good for you! :tup:

Spin spin spin:
more like the eye of Sauron in the heart of my bowl. Anyhoo, I read last night in the OG Milaana thread that you need to Grill the steak, cause if you sear it, you'll get charcoal before its medium rare. That tip makes the absolute most sense for my Mi3, and its producing bigger clouds, because now I stop drawing when there is too much vapor, rather than stopping when its too hot.

Edit, just had a bowl, the only thing I'm still struggling with is caching the bowl. It seems like I might need the XL8R stem if I wanna go any hotter/darker on my extraction.

Edit 2: my batteries are old :wave: :clap::razz::bang:RIP

HI all!
I have an OG milaana with lifetime warranty, and the inside glass bowl just cracked on me. Who would I go about contacting? And I know it says lifetime warranty, but... Im not sure who to contact

Thanks!

I think the punchy VTC6 cells are a good hack for both of my 1.5 Milaana because they still roast evenly but extract fully without getting off the button. It's like the Milaana 3 is a two or three hit stem while the Milaana 2 is three or four hits and the early Milaana takes four or five even on a fully charged cell. I like the extended flavor and lack of any hotspot risk with the 1.5s, though it can be hard to get dark once the cell is a bit drained
It still takes me 4-6 hits on my Mi3, what stem are you using?

I got one more tecnique:
While spinning separate the stem a lil bit from the oven. This lets adding fresh air to the circuit and you can squeeze the trigger all the time with a non new battery.
It's a bit more waste of bat power, but worth the try...

Dr. WeirdBud: or the reason I stopped worrying and loved the unregulated vape

So, what can be said about the Mi3 that hasn't already been covered. I guess this is more of an appreciation post, in hopes of guiding those in the future (content for the thread is fun too, as I hover some of these threads pretty regularly and love reading everyone's thoughts).

The Mi3 is truly a work of art, and feels fantastic in the hand. Admittedly I was worried about an unregulated device, as I have only ever used a dynavap setup and a Fw7. This concern was shortly vanquished after using it for the first time. It is a dance between you and the device, and when you hit the steps perfect it will being tears to your eyes. I am able to quickly work through one bowl with a single inhale, all backed by smooth flavorful vapor. Albeit, the vapor is dry, but not hot/harsh in my experience.

This is one I leave for home due to the glass internals. Without a clear future of RBT I am terrified of breaking it. As many of you, I am assured, love the ritual that comes with vaping, this device it the very essence of that. It is one I look forward to coming home to everyday and hits O' just right 🤌.

Either way, thank you to this rbt for creating the Mi3, but also thank you to this thread for guiding me along the way!

After all the love for wood stems i just had to try one. Ed really outdid himself with this one...
I got a cocobolo 19\19 q few days ago and it is a significant step forward for the milaana and i-heat.
Like a fully adjustable basket screen without all the downside for me so far......and has not broken once.

So I'm using them both back to back right now, equally capable, though I actually think I prefer the Mi3... probably worth grabbing one while they're still available now, even though there will be Mi2 available later on?
