Which Minivap Core do you have?
I have the Teflon core. I was interested In getting the best flavor possible. As mentioned by @MinnBobber the time to full extraction may be a bit longer but the flavor seems better. I also bought the insert to enhance the conduction and frankly I never bothered to use it. I am someone with a fairly low tolerance so using the flexicone plus set up instead of direct loading the chamber with more flower isn’t something I ever do.Which Minivap Core do you have?
Rather than go with the exotic vapes I would want reliability, and my experience with "high end" vapes has been much less than reliable. Like 5 failed Mightys..... etc. So my vapes would have to be practical and reliable.
Desktop: HerbalAire. Versatile and reliable. It has been used every night since Jan 2016. No fancy attachment or hoses needed to use with a bong, just stand it upside down and place it in the female port of the bong! Love this vape!
And the only other ( so far ) reliable portable I've owned has been the Focus Vape Pro. Also bought in 2016. Not used as often anymore but I always keep a freshly charged battery in it. I take it with me with we take the ferry to cross the lake, I have terrible motion sickness and weed mostly prevents it, makes the trip tolerable. So this would be my backup vape. It's s good vape with decent, if not huge hits. It gets the job done every time.
Daily portable... that's a tough one. I'd like to say my Arizer ARGO but it remains to be seen how reliable it is. I really enjoy the Boundless CFX but I wouldn't include a vape that doesn't have a removable battery.
I really enjoy my Dynavap Tectonic now that I have an induction heater, but I hated it when used with a torch. I suspect that you wont find any current induction heater to be reliable long term, as evidenced by the high failure rate of those available today
I tried the Sticky Brick, it would make good firewood.....,, Magic Flight ( they still make this??? ) don't want to be carrying a pocket full of batteries. I love the vapor and huge clouds of the Tera but, like the Mighty, it's junk. I'm on my fourth one right now, in 9 months...
So for now, I'm going with the ARGO. Great flavor, moderately dense hits, a good every day portable that's easy to carry, uses replaceable batteries, and has worked fine for the 6 months or so I've been using it.
Not connoisseur vapes, just good, reliable vapes that get the job done.
My three picks are:
These are only my opinions based on my personal experiences. I love my Dynavap! I just didn't like using a torch. I use it daily now.Oh boy this post might bring out the fanboys. Speaking negatively about the Mighty, Sticky Bricks, and Dynavap all in one post is something. I have no problem with it based on your described experience. I own all three and haven’t had an issue with any of them. I’ve always liked the idea of the Argo but never have pulled the trigger...
The Tera, like the Mighty, have electronics issues. I loved the vapor from the Tera, I do have a modded lid with a solo stem. The MF just didn't agree with my old, arthritic hands lol. I feel the Dyna Vaps do what the MF was meant to do, provide an uncomplicated device. Which led me to the same issues with the DV. So it's me, not the products in these instances. Some days, not dropping the DV is an accomplishmentOh @pop22 I wasn’t suggesting you were trying to stir things up. I just know there are some passionate owners of those devices that support them in quite a strong fashion. As far as the Tera goes, did you try the Solo glass stem in it? Made mine much more enjoyable. As for the MFLB, I only use mine with a DIY 510 adapter and a smaller box mod so I enjoy it a great deal. Anymore I have come to realize almost all vaporizers are better than smoking so I treat it like pizza. Even bad pizza is good pizza compared to no pizza...

I stand by my words though about the mighty and the Tera, esp. the Mighty, when you have FIVE $399 vapes fail.......... you can't call it a good product. As to the Magic Flight, it was ok,, I'm not a fan, I just considered it too finicky. Made good vapor on occasion.
So I'm not flaming these products, just stating opinions based on experience. I'm not trying to offend anyone.
@TommyDee and @scy123 are the Jedi masters on this one. I sent my materials to @TommyDee and he was gracious enough to put them together for me. It looks pretty straightforward but I know my limitations as far as diy stuff goes. It essentially makes the MFLB into a conduction equivalent of the RBT Splinter V2. Strong words I know but it gets rid of one the biggest MFLB gripes, all the batteries. Nobody has as yet taken up making them. If that is still the case six months from now when I retire, maybe I’ll give it a go and open up an Etsy storefront...TIL that this exists. I found some reddit threads on how to make one, but I would love any info you can share. Thanks!
You thinking about getting the new E-Nano XL?Lovely thread for sure!
Splinter Z - there's simply nothing like this IMO
Dynavap SS19 tip with Simrell Shortex and 2018 cap - in this specific configuration and with a single flame torch
E-Nano - it's super efficient and I can use it all day without ending up too medicated (which is a lovely side effect of the Splinter Z)
I'm really not sure.You thinking about getting the new E-Nano XL?
I'm so glad they kept the Vapman alive, it's kind of the ultimate slow, pleasurable, wake-and-bake or tea-time vape. Love the new glass and inox mouthpieces as well.it's the Vapman that has caught my attention
