Yep, thanks... I've got a technology background but I missed the boats on battery science and classifications. I guess the LG HE4 is simply LG's "brand" of the same industry standard? Now I can frame my consternation better: With all the alphanumeric characters printed on the side of that Roffu battery, is there no industry standard that would faithfully allow someone to determine its characteristics? You'd think that was important... especially with things that can explode lolYeah it's the same 18650, I never even used the stock batteries yet with either of mine, so far I've only used both of them with LG HE4 that I already had...

Thank you, Rusty. REWRAPS? Wait, you mean I could inadvertently buy rewraps, or I shouldn't rewrap my batteries if the skin is damaged....?Identification is another reason to buy the real brand names. Most likely, like other manufacturers, they have a contract with one of the Chinese battery producers. So you will probably never find the real specifications, an analyzer type battery charger would give you more tips on its capacity, but knowing its true amperage rating is determined on how HOT it gets under a large load, equipment that few have. Use the one it came with, and buy ones that have proper markings, and downloadable spec sheets. Avoid REWRAPS!

Thanks again, SS. I've got three 18650's well into over a year's worth of daily rotation. Still going strong. I'll be sure to clip this advice to the fridge. Learned a lot today!That's what he means, that's why you only buy from reputable sources, and safer from the known brands... You can look up the specs, it's 20A and 2400-2600mAh (LG HG2 have 3000mAh but lower amps, like 15-18A) also see Samsung 25R and 30Q, Sony VTC, and Molicell P26A and P28A, each of these is a good 18650 cell to use here by the way
It is just your unit by the sound of it.I don't know if it is just my specific
Slightly less capacity than what the vape comes with...so why not use the OG's...are you keeping them fresh for ron?so far I've only used both of them with LG HE4 that I already had...
I like LG HG2 and Sony VTC6...Google says about LG HG2,(LG HG2 have 3000mAh but lower amps, like 15-18A)
Hi, LesPlenty... I'm curious about your hack... adapting to that mouthpiece looks challenging. It seems like XVape should be able to fashion something that goes in place of the upper-magnetic assembly on the cap, methinks.I am liking the Roffu on a bong with my WPA hack but do hope Xvape bring out their own version, this thing milks up a bong very quickly compared to most vapes I have.
They made them for the Starry and Aria, I have the failure to make a wpa option is due to the S&B syndrome. The Crafty engineers never talked to the Mighty engineers about their vaporizer has a flat bottom and could stand upright without the need to additional help.It seems like XVape should be able to fashion something that goes in place of the upper-magnetic assembly on the cap, methinks.
Thanks for that excellent review. Look forward to more comparisions with the Pro v3. Imagine that would be OK, considering that they are made by same company.After days of going through every possible retailer I started to lose hope getting the Roffu here in EU... but thanks to a TopGreen guy on reddit I actually was able to get my hands on it (thank you french guy! )
Jumping from the Starry 3 to this is pretty much upgrade in all ways. The very first few draws on the Roffu were a bit 'weak' lets say, but that was because with the Starry I got used to short cigar-like puffs (because on conduction vapes the vapour builds up in the oven and it's ready to draw instantly I guess). Then I realized that I need to go with longer & slower draws. And it started hitting... pretty hard I usually smoke my bud on 2 sessions. At 180C I started getting really nice & dense clouds (compared to 180C on the Starry - definitely denser). What really impressed me however, is that at higher temps (like 210C+) the Roffu kept the taste pretty clean and the vapour cool, where as on the Starry flavour after 210-220C+ started getting pretty rough & vapour was really hot.
I think they really nailed it with the design here. In fact, the design is honestly what got me hooked up the most. I feel like a lot of the stuff going on make perfect sense. First of all, nearly all parts are super easy to disassemble, and easy to clean. Ovens being detachable (and even having 2 different ones!) is just incredibly convenient. There is a metal mesh with silicon ring in the middle of both ovens where the bud lays on, but what's interesting here is that the ovens are perfect cylinders & are smooth. This makes it possible to put both meshes in a single oven which lets you flip the oven after session without stirring at all! This is even easier if you use the V3 Pro caps (which also fit perfectly - great for users who upgrade from V3Pro to Roffu).
Accessories are also pretty cool, I love the shovel/cleaning tool, but I'm just a sucker for little tools like this. The little grinder is also really cute The foam packaging on the other hand (the one that the vape sits on when in the box) is really bad, as this is the reason behind the bad smell I'm pretty sure. It has the typical terrible rubber/silicon smell that gets used in cheap stuff. Which is really weird as the vape definitely doesn't have a cheap feel to it. Hopefully the manufacturer takes notes on this.
And to finish it off with a question - do you think that the 18650 battery on the Starry is better for the Roffu? It looks like official Samsung battery, where as the one that comes with the Roffu doesn't have any branding. I'm not really expert on electronics either
Thanks, Beam. And thanks for that eye chart lol. It’s surprising that there are so many “types”. Kinda makes it more difficult to choose one, but I suppose half the effort is determining availability.The18650 included with the V3Pro is the Eve 26V.
I’ve used the V3P for the past year and just started using the Roffu last week or so, not sure because this thing hits so well I’ve lost track of time. “Luckily”, I just a few minutes ago tested positive for Covid and I haven’t even thought of vaping for the entire day. That’s saying a lot lol.Thanks for that excellent review. Look forward to more comparisions with the Pro v3. Imagine that would be OK, considering that they are made by same company.
Please do tell, what are your reasons for liking that puff history feature?I like this feature myself for a few reasons...
Looking forward to a proper WPA...any news from anywhere?
I just sent the marketing guy a message about accessories for the Roffu (including a WPA)
1...It is handy for keeping track of different multiple vapes that look identical (I cannot tell which is my older or new XMAX PRO V3's).Please do tell, what are your reasons for liking that puff history feature?
His exact words,Love to know what the marketing guy says!
