TinyMight Vaporizer

Abysmal Vapor

Saturnine in my mind
Actually, the stock TM stems are made out of quartz, not boro... Aftermarket stems seem to be mostly boro though. Damn I don't feel like trying to find quartz pearls now for my stock stems, I already have rubies lol
Quartz is almost equal to Boro on Mohs scale,so it is fine. I am still waiting for an answer from the materials expert,but from what i read later it is best to use stuff with the same hardness/wearability than different.
 

Abysmal Vapor

Saturnine in my mind
Boro - 5
Quartz - 7
Ruby / Sapphire - 9
Whats is the source of that info. I have even read in some reasearches quartz only more resistant on thermal shock,boro is actually more durable,lol.
Boro 6.5
Various place various info. I guess it might be heat strenghtened. Actually there are different kinds of Boro 3.3 4.3 ,so there is the variability i guess.
7.5
7.5

Yeah I pissed on the rug...... so what
this might be old news but its new to me so I thought I'd share. attention Canadian tinymight owners molicel P26A batteries are now available in Canada ! I never found them before when I went looking but I did find 2 places recently, flashlight world which is more expensive even with the coupon code but I still ordered from them since I wanted a 18650 flashlight to retire my Sony vt6's to. I also found them at ecigarettes.ca for cheaper.

Now THAT is reasonable. Even for 10 but 38 more for another 2 bucks is cheap. Same size as the rubies I have as terp pearls but this is meant to fill a stem. I may try some as terp pearls as well.

Are the 6mm too big for stem fillers? Incidentally, I realized that the ball bearings are probably not a good idea due to potential rust...

Anyone here that also has a Brilliant Cut have a grind plate preference for use with the Tinymight? I have the medium and it's working well but I'm kinda curious about the coarse for who knows what reason.
I only have the medium for my BCG and love it for all my vapes. I've never been tempted to try a coarse plate and tend to think I'd end up with less airflow if I went fine. I've only got the medium though so what do I know

Hi guys! new user here but long time lurker :D

I like full convection vapes the most, I currently own a Firefly 2+ as a daily driver...but i'd like to try a vape with an easier vaping experience. Something that doesn't require looong steady draws to get clouds, something to sip more relaxed (maybe with a session mode), that you can share with friends without explaining them how it works. And maybe something that doesn't require stirring in between a couple of hits (stirring and reloading the firefly 2+ it's impossible if you're trying to be stealthy)

I was one click away of buying a crafty+...cause it seems to check a lot of boxes (easiness of vaping experience being the most important) but what kept me from doing it was that i don't want to lose too much of the efficiency i've grown accustomed to with the FF2+

I was trying to find a workaround for the bowl constantly heating and wasting my things (dosing capsules, cbd mixtures ecc...) when i stumbled on this tinymight. Have seen a bunch of opposite experiences...and this is giving me a lot of thinking into its pros and cons but it seems i can't find a straight answer to my doubts. First of all...is the Tinymight safe? Is the airpath really passing through wood glass and stainless steel only? Is the PCB in contact with the airpath?

Then come all the questions about the vaping experience. I've seen that it rips hard and the flavor is probably a good match with my firefly 2+. But can i take little sip like i would do with a crafty? How easy is to use compared to my FF2+? Is it reliable in terms of performance?

Thanks and sorry for the long post
Yessir, welcome and a tip of the hat on a fine first post and first choice for your second portable.

Indeed the Tinymight is safe, easy, consistent, effective, and less fussy than your FF2+. It's also a great value compared to on demand convection portables with comparable power.

We recommend it almost daily these days and I'd be surprised if you weren't impressed by just setting the dial to five or six and pressing the sensible little fire button.

I use mine from around 4 to 7.5 and really enjoy its versatility. At 4 I'm impressed by the flavor and will often temp step from there with just a twist (you don't even need a fingernail to adjust the temp dial but it never moves accidentally).

For home use I recommend a j-hook or bubbler. Getting the stainless steel cooling unit out of the air path is the one caveat I'd make. Some folks just remove the nuts and washers from the middle while others contrive glass stems filled with boro beads or rubies, which is a capital idea I've yet to try. In any case, you haven't really experienced the flavor ceiling of the Tinymight until you've gotten that cooling unit out of the way.

Customer service is all sorted though so no need to worry on that front.

No 6 mm are perfect, that's what I had said earlier, so they don't restrict the airflow too much, also less cleaning with larger size, but I got the 4 mm as well so I can try both, depends on the stems really, screens etc, also fun to mix the two together! (I have 4/6mm rubies in a hook with my tetra)

I think I saw a pic of a filled stem that had a empty path through the center, but I don't remember what size balls they were using.

Hmm well are you sure? bc that wouldn't really make a lick of sense, if there's an empty path through the center then there's no cooling, you want the vapor to go through a complex maze created by the beads...

What stem setup do you recommend to use those pearls/rubies with a TM?

So I haven't actually tried it yet myself, plan was to go with the regular short stem, and the ditanium mouthpiece (which I have still never tried either, have no idea what size of o-ring to use and unfortunately don't think I even have the right one at all lol) but now I have a lovely pink Rogue MP (acrylic 14mm tapered with titanium liner and included o rings) so I may end up trying it with that first! May do some hook experiments as well...

Engineering designs often allow for "sacrificial" elements. If you control the "weak" point you can plan for future maintenance. In this case you don't want stems wearing and breaking so it would make sense to use balls that are softer, not harder. Personally I don't think there is enough vibration or movement to matter. Regardless of the material it will last 1000 years before needing replacement.

That is my concern. In your case you could alternate rows of 6mm with rows of 4mm and that might solve it, but I am intending to only get one size.

Oh you are concerned of that? I thought you were saying someone placed them that way intentionally for some reason... I don't understand your concern, if the 6 mm are too big in the tube? When I dumped a mix of 4 and 6, it was literally a mix it's not like I layered them intentionally lol they move around a lot, I'm wearing now because it is rubies in a cheap glass hook, but I hardly use it, but yeah why I got these quartz pearls to try more stuff and with TM in particular... Yeah I think it's worth getting a mix of sizes regardless, but I do think the 6 mm are overall better, but I have not tried them in the tube and how they will lay out, but any kind of zigzag any kind of anything is fine, they're not going to end up being a ring with a hole through the center the way you described unless you intentionally get them to do that somehow? Think of it like the spikes ;)

Oh yeah, that doesn't look too effective, I don't know if I've ever seen 5 mm anywhere, I also can't tell exactly what stem that is where with the o-ring and that ledge in it? But anyway yeah get both sizes and experiment I say, that's what I did, and I'm not planning to arrange them carefully, more haphazardly lol but we shall see won't we

I've a selection of balls of different sizes, 3, 4, 5, and 6mm and I've done some experimentation. Personally, I only see a need for these if looking for portable solutions as a j hook is nicely free flowing and cools adequately for me. However, you can make a great cooling unit in the stock stems with balls if desired. IMO 5mm is the dogs danglies for this purpose weather using the CU halves or any other method to hold them in. The reason I like 5mm is the way they stack. They sit in perfect groups of 4, and you can add or subtract the number of groups to customise the experience. There is a small opening that runs directly through the middle, this can be obstructed with a 3mm ball in one of the groups. I have replaced my CU halves with a section of glass tubing (salvaged broken Evo nails) to create a nearly 100% glass vapour path.

You're right @cybrguy that's me. See my previous quoted message at the top of this post.

5mm stack in these massively satisfying rings of 4 (zoom in to the tip image). 6mm or 4 mm don't do that but I guess that's not too important of you're still using CU halves. To get rid of the central pathway, which actually isn't a problem as I've discovered, you can put a 3mm bread in the center between 2 layers. Cleaning is even easier than stock as I don't bother disassembling these days, just an ultrasonic bath in iso, followed by a rinse and another bath in water.

Edit:

Try it man! The balance between airflow and cooling is the business!

Fwiw I found the 5mm quartz pearls on the gate

Yeah, it seems to me that that straight path through the stem kinda defeats the purpose of the airpath being diffused so that you get more cooling. It may cool well enough and not be a problem, but I think I will try a different size ball to increase the cooling if I can. 4mm and 6mm seem easier to find anyway. Being very heat sensitive I rarely take my TM out and about as it is too warm for me, and if I can come up with a way to cool better on a shorter stem I will give it a shot. The only stem I have that cools enough for me is my highly nippled custom xl8er from RBT, and that is too long, especially with the F to F I need to use with it.

Much of the beads surface area is available to the vapor flowing down that central path though.

It's not like a straight tube down the middle, it's sort of an Allihn condenser in a way as the beads contours add surface area.

Also more open airflow promotes more turbulent mixing.

Thank you for that, now I understand, custom glass pieces in the mod!

Yeah that sounds good, I have not thought I would use the cooling unit halves, have to find my original cooling unit, still never cleaned it, I know I have the new one though, never cleaned it from its arrival or used it, I guess I could use parts of it... Also don't have ultrasonic cleaner, that sounds nice, cleaning is the most annoying thing for everything! Better to just buy new stems lol

Yeah now I understand seeing the whole thing how it is effective!

Yeah 5 mm aren't easily available, and I don't want to order them from the gate, while I already ordered the 6 mm and 4 mm from Amazon anyway :tup:

Yeah now that I see the full picture, I'm not worried about that straight path, as inverted described as well, but yeah try a mix of 4 and 6 mm to create a crazy maze like I will!

I never use my xl8r stems anymore, their simplistic spikes really cannot compare to Phineas vigreux or right angle bends in my experience, pearls likely much better too!

no rust in the stainless steel :disgust:

:dog:
I didn't realize that all ball bearings are stainless. Seems to me that I had some for my wrist rocket when I was a kid that rusted in a drawer over time...

Hmmm, what have we here?
