Discontinued The Lotus Vaporizer

I was really hoping someone had picked up the design and gone with it. I don't know if Steven dropped it because he was done or if he wasn't making enough sales to support the effort, but this vape's audience has grown since production stopped, or at least it seems so.
Maybe like Star Trek TOS he can do a movie... :lol:

@batteryfreeganz has previously released a similar device called Castle. I believe two versions were released. Their reach has since widened from east Asia to (at least) "the west", after they released Danivape. Anyway, they are considering coming with a v3.

There's some info and pics in the Dani thread, one of the last pages. https://fuckcombustion.com/threads/danivape-by-battery-free-ganz.52678/ And since Dani is well received, I'm pretty excited about that. Helpt me keep my vas in check for this Lotus rn haha.

I thought these were discontinued
Thanks for the heads up! I drop by for each new post, hoping production has resumed. This is almost as good.

As a bonus, VF aren’t charging VAT on int’l orders anymore. The last time they found dead stock (w/ the cool bubbler), they sold out while I confirmed that they were indeed collecting VAT on US orders.

And once again, FC blows up my discretionary budget.

Holy Toledo Grandpa Joe... I think I got the last GOLDEN 🎫 ! Thanks to everyone on this thread for the play by play heads up per usual. I appreciate your replies @Grass Yes and @daddy 🙏 I was having some payment issues (3-D Secure snags) and it finally went through on the third card I tried. Ironically my Cash App option saved the day, the last card I expected to work..But what an unexpected treat, and I'm very glad it's from George @ Vapefiend as i've never ordered there before and the dude rocks! I do have to admit that this is a backup for me, and I was scrambling like I had never owned one prior, to get this last one. It's that awesome!! Hope everyone that grabbed one loves it as much as I do 😊

I don't know how they'd compare functionally, but the Castle doesn't look as nice as the Lotus IMO.
True dat, but if you've followed the Danivape thread, they're being super-responsive and incorporating every good idea they can implement. I believe he's aware that people are anxious for a Lotus/replacement, so I expect that once he turns his efforts there, it'll be a whole feedback-improvement process around that, too. Get in on it! Maybe everyone will end up making something even better!

In the meanwhile, a toast to you fine people and to a future full of Lotuses!

Break through and listen, to yourself
Imo the Titanium is poor choice for plates, Nickel has 5 times the thermal conductivity of Ti, which makes it a very fast heater, and also it cools down really fast once you stop heating,which is one of the reasons of the longevity of the design . The problems with the castles were that the wood was getting scorches,this IMO is due to the outer rim not cooling fast enough .

That's what I've been doing. I wish I had a better sense of how likely these were to need replaced with x amount of useage. I'll have to read through all this, I guess, but I do know that MJ's initial comments suggest that he was providing extras for cosmetic purposes or actual punctures, and that it shouldn't matter otherwise. I also remember the mad-scramble for the remaining pieces and parts, including the plates.

I want to say that I read somewhere you can use a sheet of nickel and cut it out and use that. I’ll see if I can find the link.
