What's a worthy replacement for the vapexhale evo?

My cloud evo is starting to go. The heater dial no longer has that palpable "click" when it's in the middle, the heating element is getting wonky too. Still works for now but it's only a matter of time...

Biggest thing is I've invested a considerable amount into their glass pieces. But the size is wonky. Does anyone know of a vape that fits the cloud evo glass without expensive add-ons? I've seen LSV mentioned is that the case there?

What is wonky about the size? There are a lot of options for 18.8 mm female glass

Would the Life Saber Vaporizer be one of them? Any others you recommend that work without expensive add ons? Questions open to everyone btw

Yes, and I'd even suggest something like putting a LSV vertical heater cover in a DBV. that way you can retain the upright handsfree thing. I've found that cloud ELB's fit in many 18mm male fittings.

I wish I had done this with my beloved red DBV instead of selling it and getting an EVO. :cry: (not that I don't adore the evo) Of course, with butane vapes like the nova that give evo sized hits with instant on demand heating, I never touch desktops anymore.

Ohhh I googled that! The Nova looks really promising, very reasonably priced. Potentially a session vape AND a travel vape?? Color me intrigued.

Thank you for clearing up my question about the LSV. I already have a DBV that still works so I might try that very suggestion.

I do currently have a Pax3 so it's not like I have no options once my cloud goes. But the Pax3 isn't really a session vape. CAN BE! I've looked at attachments to make that jive with a water piece and it looks very promising but I use that for stealth and being out and about. For home use...I want something a lil heavier that plugs into a wall. The DBV served me well during my early vaping years but I grew tired of the whip (taste and cleaning/replacing) and sideloading mechanics after time. It's still solid though believe I would do nothing but recommend that to anyone who doesn't mind the maintenance and stirring.

What I WANT is something like the EVO lol. Plugs into the wall, easy to maintain, all vertical in use. No mess ever. Loved this damn thing.

your biggest issue is going to be finding something that satisfies the same vertical use with the hydrotube system.

the hydrotube ecosystem has seemingly died out in the past few years, not many vapes can be used with them natively or rigged in a way that is sensible for use with them.

the one option in here the hasn't been mentioned which ticks off some of the same boxes as the evo in my opinion is the Flowerpot Pro from cannabis hardware. Hard hitting desktop mainly convection with a small footprint that is entirely self contained and uses the hydrotube system natively which is the key here.

I do love the flowerpot pro. it's a TOUCH too steep for me pricewise at the moment but it is an excellent suggestion thank you!

With an 18.8mm M to 18.8mm M (pointing opposite directions) piece, I was able to replicate my EVO experience (ELB and everything) using the LSV just now.


The first pic is a demonstration with a hydratube. The basket is upside down, but it fits snugly (like in the EVO opening) so I don't anticipate any spilling, as long as the cap is secured tightly (I find that it helps to pinch the basket from the sides a bit whenever a cap is loose).

The second pic is a demonstration with a bong, with the LSV acting like a vape lighter. The taste is super amazing, and this will definitely be my go-to method moving forward.

The third pic is my old setup with the EVO and a whip plugging into a bong. I find the water filtration to be much nicer out of a bong than a hydratube, but it feels like I'm losing something along the way inside the whip.

The last pic is an AVB comparison using the LSV at 1:30 and the EVO at 12.
With the LSV, I had 2 mild rips, 3 extremely milky, cloudy rips, and 2 more mild rips.
With the EVO, I had 3 mild rips, 5 cloudy rips, and 7 more mild rips.

Just based off of my first session with the brand new LSV vs. the EVO I've used daily for 1 year 10 months, perhaps because of the closer proximity of the coils to the basket, it seems that the LSV gets a more even extraction more quickly. I got less rips, but the good rips were more flavorful than anything I've personally experienced out of the EVO or Mighty. With the EVO, the rips felt more drawn out (more rips, less cloudy), the AVB ended up darker when I stopped seeing clouds, and there was a kind of a puck-shaped chunk of extra dark AVB at the bottom of the basket.

I was only hoping to find something that could match the EVO in terms of vapor flavor and thickness, but the LSV exceeded my expectations for sure.
