    haha...that makes no sense at all! LOL

    If OTH is set for a 150 watt coil it is set to be able to use more current than would be available if set for a 100 watt coil.

    So, running a 150 watt coil with the lower available current from a 100 watt High Output Limit setting should indeed result in longer heat up times

    But running a 100 watt coil with the higher available current from a 150 watt High Output Limit setting should result in faster heat up times, perhaps a bit of overshoot, and more stress on the 100 watt coil.

    I do understand you are just reporting what Auber said, but I think perhaps they are not understanding correctly as this just makes no sense to me.....ah, it will just have to remain one of life's little mysteries! LOL

    My take on it is that I don’t think the settings change the current, it’s just part of the PID calculation, if you tell it you have a 150 watt coil, it assumes it will respond quicker than a 100 watt coil, if you use that setting on a 100 watt coil it’ll just heat up slower.

    I put some G43 balls in and then took them out because my bottom screen didn't look secure. So I put a new screen in and made sure it was quite snug. Put the glass balls back in and turned it down 10°. :scream: Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! :love:

    The only reason I don't recommend it to others is because if that screen falls out it's like blazing hot buck shot on your lap or floor. :scream:

    @BestBuds how full did you fill the heater? I filled it as much as possible with glass beads, and it felt like drawing through a coffee stir straw, compared to the free flow draw without beads.

    I keep the coil as low as I can comfortably. And the beads are filled only just past the top of the coil. The draw restriction is like a TM now. Very nice. :up:

    @BestBuds maybe because my daily is still my sticky brick runt, the free flow draw of the elev8r is what keeps me coming back. That also might be why I run my coil at 815, cause I draw pretty fast? I'll give it a shot.

    Have any of you compared it directly to a Flowerpot? I went with that for ease of use for the others in my family, but it’s got me curious.

    I've not had them side by side. Infact my flowerpot use was one session more than 6 months ago.
    I don't think you will be disappointed with the FP unless you taste metal and prefer glass.
    I think they are different but both are amazingly great.

    I’m not disappointed at all. I got a Runt two weeks before that and just can’t get consistent results. The Weedeater has been amazing, very repeatable results and simple for others to use.

    ...with the Elev8r you do not have to move as much air as the flowerpot...

    ...the flowerpot seems a bit more awkward and bulky...

    ...you need to sort out your own E Nail and a stand with the Elev8r...

    ...other than that they seem very similar to me...

    I'm definitely pulling the trigger on Elev8r for 420. I also want to get a reliable torch, who will get the job done, but not too expensive. What are your thoughts on Big Buddy Torch by Blazer? Or something similar in that price range and in EU... Hit me up :cheer: Thankssss

    @mmx I have the Big Buddy and it works just fine with an Elev8r. There’s absolutely no need to spend over twice as much on a Big Shot :100:

    In EU also, Rothenberger Rofire Cooks Torch works great for me, around €35. Had a bigger blow torch to start but it was too easy to blacken/combust. The chefs torch size is perfect for the job, and also much quieter than a blowtorch that takes its own canisters. I find the gas for lighter refills way cheaper than those blow torch canisters too.

    With regards heating with a torch, I have been recently heating the bowl a little when torching the heater, to add a bit of conduction, being careful not to darken the load. About 6 back and forth rotations directed at the load, from the base of the glass screen all the way to to top of the bowl. That big thick built in glass screen is a great thermal mass.

    Getting clouds on the first tokes, bowl is cleared on the 3rd or 4th heat cycle/stir. The experience is also cooler on the lungs as less hot air has to be drawn in for the same quantity of vapour. Maybe others have discovered this heating method? I'm so damn impressed by the all glass Elev8r now, its the best vape ever! The little bit of conduction in the equation is a game changer for me.

    Jeez. I can't touch that price. I'm emailing my rep to see if I can get wholesale of those items based off that price. These would also be more convenient for my Elev8R Enail packages. You know how many extra rakes I already have!?! :lol:

    Wow, ain't nothing like being undercut by your manufacturer to take the blush off of the day.

    I'm pretty sure that's how retailers also felt about Ghost when they started dumping product at what is maybe even lower than what they paid wholesale.

    Ain't right, IMO. If you want a retailer network, you need to protect them. Otherwise, sell the shit yourself and staff up appropriately.

    Sigh.....

    7th Floor has always been good to me. I am sure they will take care of business. This is a new package so I can't really complain. It's just when you break down the price of the pieces this is a really good deal compared to what this would have sold for by piecing it together in the past. And again this is basically what I need for the enail mod so if they give me wholesale based off this selling price ill be in good shape.

    Yea...sure hope 7th Floor allow Other Side to make the package up and sell as they are selling it themselves like a regular item now. It should be a win win as it will be come more popular.
