Tafée Bowle

It'd be really easy to turn the Bowle into a bubbler with a fairly simple silicone lid that seals the cup and, separately, the open end of the stem. Have an air-channel that goes from the end of the stem, up into the lid, and to a drop-down that plunges down into the cup. Have a hole for a mouthpiece somewhere on the lid and include one that looks like a standard sippy straw. My mock-up:

Yeah that would be the easiest way to convert the cup into a bubbler but the problem is gonna be the cleaning. The acrylic cup might be able to handle alcoholic drinks but I think it won't be the same if you use iso to clean it. Over time I'm sure the cup will get damaged by the iso, if they release a glass cup then it won't be a problem at all.

Also I'm not sure I want to use the same cup I use to drink and use it as a bubbler. I can already see myself forgetting that I've used the cup to vape earlier in the day and take a big sip out of it. :puke:

Vito, for you and countless others with negative alcohol associations, I apologize

I have broken glasses and cut myself when drunk. For years, I've used acrylic glassware for this reason. Safety first. My cheapo Target acrylic glasses are troopers

Marketing slogan suggestion: Bowle is a great vape whether you're an alcoholic or not!

Likely not... if your pouring in the alcohol last and not drinking triple shot Cranberry and vodka, it sounds fine.
Well...I do pour the vodka in last but the mix is 2 shots of tart cherry juice, 2 shots of cranberry juice and 4 shots of vodka.

To show my solidarity for the Bowle and it's users I will make the ultimate sacrifice and continue to perform this test nightly. Admittedly it's kind of like....I was going to be in the neighborhood anyway......

All kidding aside....that drink is nursed most of the evening so the cup is not catching a break by finishing the drink quickly followed by rinse. Stay tuned......

I ran three bowls through the Bowle last night. Loaded around .1g each time. WAY more than I needed, but you know how the testing phase goes! I was extremely medicated all night off this thing. It hits hard.

Battery meter was still showing 2 lights at the end of the night. I should get at least one more full bowl, probably a little more. I was using it mostly on temp setting 3, but also had some hits at level 1 and 2, and typically finished off at 4. I was getting 4-6 nice hits per bowl. Very nice even extraction. Impressive AVB. I did stir occasionally, but it doesn’t seem totally necessary.

My initial impressions are quite favorable. This vape is a great contrast to the rest of my lineup, which is mostly artisan/wood. Very different feel with this one. Feels futuristic in a way. The build quality is excellent and I love how simple the design is. Clicking the stem into the puck is so satisfying! I will say I’m not a massive fan of dealing with the ceramic pots - they’re kinda tough to load without the potter (I use a BCG) given their small size, and I’m just not used to fiddling with crucibles/dosing caps. But, they are definitely nice quality and the overall interface and user experience feels pretty top notch.

What about the vapor? Well, it’s quite good. I was taking pretty long 15-20 second pulls and getting great hits. This thing can really rip right off the bat, and the vapor really is surprisingly cool and smooth despite the relatively short air path and lack of water filtration.

I broke out the cup for the last bowl of the night, filled it with seltzer. I enjoyed having the drink handy! I will likely use it without the cup most of the time, but I can still see the cup getting a lot of use, especially if I’m chilling on the couch and watching TV or playing video games. One nitpick here - the flat mouthpiece seems optimal when using with the cup, since it keeps a low profile and blends in better visually, but I wasn’t finding it to be very comfortable to use. The long mouthpiece feels perfect though.

When using without the cup, I preferred to hold the button down. With the cup, I was taking advantage of the draw sensing technology, which worked great. I didn’t have any issues with the heater cutting out mid-draw. Will continue to test and see how it goes.

These are my thoughts after one night. Overall, this seems to be a winner, but time will tell!

if you dont use the potter have you tried filling the pots with the included funnel? once you get the scoop size dialed in for dosage you can fill them from your BCG that way too. either using the stem to hold the pot one at a time or the stand in the potter+ to hold all 4 to funnel fill them.

Sorry if it is already discussed but Is there any mention what is the coil material ? Does it glow on max level,when you are not inhaling ?
I am guessing that the heater is ceramic, perhaps I will call the company and find out! It has a breath sensor, that shuts the heater if button is held and there is no inhalation going on, and when you let the pressure on the button go, it stops heating as well. The unit's heater does not glow visibly, and with the stem/bowle attached it can't be seen at all.

Thanks for the input ! I am pretty sure it is metal coil ,encased in ceramic shell. I just wonder if it is SS,Kanthal,Nichrome,etc.. :) I am aware of the sensor also. Tech sounds to be pretty similar to the A.P.E Vaporizer ,minus the PID control.
