that's good, i am getting better at this, actually i am now starting to like the longer sesion at 190s range and i am packing the bowl like you described it. i noticed that i really don't like packing bowls, thats weird, i would gladly roll small joints one after the other, but packing a bowl seems like an effort to me? is it because i'm new at this? lol

if it's not total garbage and you set it at 200/400 it should produce decent vapor. (handheld or desktop)

there's also a huge difference between convection and conduction, but for the most part, 385f-400ish temps work well. (+- 10 isn't catastrophic, i adjust accordingly)

the original temps mentioned above were barely 360f, that's low for any kit I've ever tried regardless of how it's heated or where it's measured.

I use a 2-pc space case grinder. nothing fancy.

You can pack plenty more in but it wont heat as evenly and in the end, I feel I don't get the same vapor to weed ratio (over pack = inefficient)

I must retract my earlier statement about "it shouldn't matter what vape, temps are temps" it matters A LOT!

I use S&B's Mighty and Crafty.
S&B's design pre-heats the air before passing it through the (also) heated herb.
Most units pass "cold" air through heated herb.

Depending on where each unit is reading the temp from is another huge variable.
If, and I do/can, one notices a difference in the vapor output from a 3 to 5 degree shift in temps, and then the real possibility of a 10 or more degree discrepancy between manufacturers... LOTS of variables.

i use a piece of paper (or post card) folded in half, and just sort of funnel it in there, compress a little, and top off. i use the flat end of a dab tool as a weight(just let gravity do it), so it's consistently packed. i also roll, the biggest effort either way is grinding.

so I am using both vaporizers and they are great, but now i had a problem with a sore dry throat, and i stopped vaping for now, and i was reading on how to deal with that, one way is to vape through a water bong, i am thinking maybe vape with the balloon after allowing it to cool down? anyone had this problem?

those 2 things, cooling with a balloon, or a water filter help a lot. a longer hose through some cool water helps too. they even make cooling coils, and other devices you freeze.

Nope, never LOL.

Bong-0-Plenty

http://www.vapeworld.com/plenty-vaporizer
The Plenty really puts out some warm vapor.
Mighty and Crafty cool much better.

well I tried attaching the vape to water bottle and the vapor is much cooler but i am not getting any "smoke" at all now, i felt as if i was ruining my bud by vaping in into air without any effects so i have not vaped except with balloon since yesterday. vapor causing me a sore throat is a very real problem here, i cannot really use the vapes if they are burning my throat. By the way, I have consistently noticed that I am less tolerant to hot drinks or hot showers than most people that i know. That is when a coffee is hot I would have to wait for it to cool down before I can drink it while others drink it at higher temps. maybe that is a reason to why i cannot tolerate hot vapor or maybe i just overdid it lol I was vaping with 2 vapes at the time i felt the sore throat using the solo as the extreme q bowl was heating up and vice versa

You could always go a little higher on the heat for denser vapor if you are going through a water bottle.

www.vapornation.com/vapir-water-tool-kit.html

something simple like that could help, i usually have a box of those around (i give them out with the vapir rise).

i would need some glass bong just to pass vape through water, but the balloon is a better option I guess. I just have to wait for it to heat up and I can blow 2 balloons with a single elbow packing. I think that the solo has much less use from now on. ahh I had the feeling that I was paying a lot for something that I did not really need when I bought the solo, I figured the hell with it, we only live once, but I wanted to be able to use it, I suspect that the sore throat was caused by it since i do feel the much hotter air from it when I inhale, that is because of the very short straw vs the longer etremeq whip. I need a water filter thats bigger than the solo to cool down the vapor

other models actually have water attachments, like the cloud v. portables are always a little hotter/harsher since the heat source is going to be closer to your face.

I love my solo, and air model. But they have a time and place. I couldn't use them all the time without a dry throat either.

well, for a good week, I was using them both with no ill effects and boy was I vaping with devotion lol but then I had that sore throat incident and it seems like it is irritating me more ever since, like i need a break from vaping except for the balloon, and i have not used the solo since then and when i use the whip, i keep drinking water. passing it through water like a bong, i felt was a bad idea like i was losing all the vapor. I can conclude that I was lucky that I chose extremeq over vtower because the balloon is very important to me, but I wish I never bought the solo because I will use it only when I go out to friends and such, and I could have stuck to the good old joint for that. I am considering getting a long whip to attach it to the solo because it seems like it helps a lot in cooling down the air, maybe I can find a metallic whip to help cooling

updating this thread with my latest experience, I will retract my statement: "I wish I never bought the solo". the sore throat issue was caused because I was inhaling like crazy straight through the throat with the longest puffs that my chest could inhale, but later I tried puffing the solo by filling my mouth then inhaling sort of like with a joint, and it works great apart from making me look like a horse drinking water as I puff

I have to be more careful when I use a vape too. It will dry your throat out so bad!!

.

ah yes, sucking technique ...

a faster draw will cool things off more (mixed blessing as you felt)
a "relaxed draw" is best (IMO)
you have to MAKE air flow but no need to stress your self (lungs/body) in the process

think sucking like a mad-man through a pin joint that's simply too tight... sure you can try and draw SUPER hard but its not really helping.


be sure to exhale through your mouth and nose a little, really adds to the flavor.

I broke one elbow the one with a short whip for the balloon filling, and I have been filling the balloon with the long whip now I was thinking, would it be a good idea to wrap the elbow with aluminium foil to protect it? I don't want to be buying 10euro elbows regularly and when it broke, it only fell from waist level to the ground and it was cold glass so it breaks quite easy.

I don't think foil will help. I told my wife to just be mindful, and not break anymore! I keep a couple spares too.

If growing is a 'hobby', expect to pay for it.
If it's a 'profession', expect to invest in it.
If it's a 'passion', however, then none of the forgoing matters...
