I just bought an Arizer air and a smoke buddy and I was wondering if the smell lingers, like after smoking cigarrettes, thankfully nobody cares about the smell in my building but I don't want to weed smell to stay on the walls, furniture or whatever else.

Nah, The smell from my buddah only stays for around an hour after I've vaped. No lingering smells when I quit for a couple months either.

Hey /vape/,

I'm likely buying an entire vape kit this Monday, and I want to make it maximum stealth so I can smoke in empty places in campus instead of having to walk about 3 kilometers outside campus to smoke.

So far my plans are to get:

  • a Kayfun atomizer (not sure which, being honest)
  • iStick Pico
  • A PG flavor that doesn't produce a lot of vapor or smell, but that has a good taste

I still want to get a huge buzz from the nicotine but I want it to be decently compact, that doesn't make a huge "pop" noise and keep the vapor to a minimum, though, so I'm not sure exactly what I should get that still doesn't sacrifice the taste and doesn't smell much.

Thx in advance

I'm sorry to have to be the one to tell you this but your whole entire post here is dumb.

You may be able to get a mod that does not "pop" when you fire it But Tbh the noise isn't very loud to others and if your mod has any air holes at all it will make noise as you enhale.

Secondly iirc max pg is for people that want BIGGER vape clouds.

Thirdly the only way to get a juice with no smell is something with no flavor, and the only way to get "little to no vapor" is to either not hit the vape hard at all or, idk, not vape. All juices are going to make vapor, the bigger the cloud is based off of how big your unit is esentialy and how much vapor it is pushing at one time when you enhale.

But here is a little protip for you, something I wish all you readers on /vape/ would learn: BIGGER UNITS = MORE VAPOR = MORE NICOTINE PER HIT. If you want to get that head rush it's easier to blow big clouds than to vape a 24mg nic level, which is going to be super harsh on your throat.

I usually get some 3mg nic juice and get a good warm burn going on my sub ohm RDA... after a couple minutes of blowing clouds I get a nice body buzz going, similar to caffeine. If I'm using .6% i get a really cool burn going so it's not harsh on the throat and just keep puffing. After too much I get a weird anxiety though so I like to either take breaks or blend in some no nic.

As a smoker who's been trying to quit, I've been trying to figure out how to get that head rush. I vape 6 mg liquid, and I never really got it on any of my old devices, but I recently bought a 75 watt unit, and it actually does it for me. I think vaporizing a larger volume of liquid in each hit is important.

It's simple. High wattage vape that produces a lot of vapor requires less nicotine. If you're using a device that is weaker just up the nic to 18mg or something and you'll still get a good rush.
I prefer high wattage with lots of vapor and airflow so I don't have to suck on the thing for ages but you can still get a kick out of lower tier shit.

This is pretty much what it is. Ever since I started vaping on a bigger box/tank combo I get more nicotine per hit, even just vaping on an 8 or 12 mg nic level.

I also get more of a head buzz if I've been drinking.

Is it the MFLB or is there another?

I need to vape in a very small room with a window open and my exhaled vapor going through a smokebuddy jr. Thus I just need to kill the scent eminating from the unit itself because the vapor is taken care of with the combo forementioned. Should I get a really long piece of tubing and just hang a vaporizer out my window crack down the building (first floor) and suck on it lol? Very disapproving parents and one has the smell of a dog.

You're fucked OP. Try to sneak out when you smoke/vape or wait until they go to bed, Find someone's house to make edibles in. Look up recipes like brownies or tinctures/green dragon. If you're in a legal state just buy it. (In case you don't know, don't try to make edibles, your kitchen will reek of weed for hours.)

That all said, if you _really_ want to vape inside, the MFLB is the sneakiest I've tried. The vapor path is so short that there's nowhere for the smell to condense onto. Blow it out the window even without a nice sploof and you'll probably be okay. Other vapes I've tried like the Pax 2 are great but REEK in comparison. Any vape is better than any form of smoking though.

Is Arizer EQ a good desktop vape? I like my Arizer Air, but I don't really find myself needing a portable vape cause I'm usually doing it at my place with a few friends anyway. Passing around a portable vape that gets hot and needs batteries doesn't really work with 4 people.

They're all quality vapes, but they're all very styles. You need to think about how you want to use your vape, then the choice should be obvious.

Volcanoes are great for groups, but I find the bags inconvenient for solo use. The VapeXhale is going to give you the thickest rips, but can be a pain to pass around more than two or three people.

As for the portables, they're both good, but the mighty is significantly larger. How important is stealth to you?

Not really, you don't need much power for concentrates. Don't buy any name brand pens or atomizers. They're virtually the same quality as the generic Chinese ones, and most of the time were made in the same factory. Look for a quartz dual coil oil globe, should be around $10-15. For a battery go to a vape shop and pick up something cheap like an iStick.

I just got an istick power nano with a ceramic tank, what wattage do you think I should do?
this is my first time getting into this, I've read to stay between 4-7 something but I find at8-10 is where I get the best hits, because lower than that it doesn't get hot enough fast enough I guess.
Am I wasting my wax because I feel like every hit should be hard hitting like any other dab, even though I am vaping.
I've gotten a few really great hits out of it that really got me good but idk what I'm doing.
My box goes from 1-40 watts, voltage seems to adjust with watts.
has temperature control modes but those are for coils made out of specific material not including ceramic.

I doubt any of the coils for your tank can be temp controlled.

I wouldn't worry about your wattage too much. There's a lot of variance with these atomizers. You're not cranking it up to anything crazy, just go with what works for you.

You should experiment with turning down the power a bit though and see if you still get as high. Most of these atomizer aren't going to hit anything like a real rig. Turning them up may make them seem like they are hitting harder, but it mostly due to the hotter air burning your throat more.

Now I haven't used my vape on any concentrates yet but I do have something I can say about your comment.

When I vape if you begin to inhale quickly after you begin to hit your setup you can avoid the vapor getting hot and burning your throat. Reults; longer hits bigger clouds. That being said I would think you would want to put your wattage up as high as possible for concentrates to get the actual burn required for dabs.

I don't know the info but I would assume you could literally take the temp it takes to vaporize a dab in a dab rig and cal ulatewhat voltage it is that leads to an equivalent heat then extrapolate the wattage based of that voltage. Or ofc go temp controlled =p

Depending on your juice and how much you vape, anywhere between a week to a month-ish. You can use any of those coils on standard vw mode, and if your box has settings for temperature control (make sure it matches the metal the coil is made of) you can run it that way.
Diaboli - Mon, 09 Jan 2017 11:32:40 EST ID:QxIlzRXL No.3226 Ignore Report Quick Reply
Pretty much what Matilda said, except I've had some coils burn out in days,

Currently I use a smok tank with an octo coil, if I don't let the juice level get low so the coil can't reabsorb juice quickly and the coil fires dry my coil will last well over a month.

The difference in coil metals is used only for temp control box mods. Your kangertech doesn't even have voltage settings iirc but has the standard wattage settings so you pretty much will use the steel coils only

Casually smoking 8ths in a Source Orb 3 by Banteel - Sat, 27 Aug 2016 18:05:31 EST ID:J52GtMM0 No.2892 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

For the casual shatter smoker:
This is for Source Orb 3 & 4 vape pens with the purchase of Single Coil Quartz Atomizers.
Take 2 to 3g of wax concentrate a month.
Roll each g as needed into a reasonable line, with parchment paper, apx 2 inches long.
Cut the g equally into 8 pieces by cutting halve, then cutting the halves and again halving all halves.
Place one 8th into the pen and casually smoke it for 2 days.

Recap. Minimum 2g wax cut into 8ths, smoke 1 8th every 2 days = 1g is 16 days = 2g min a month.

You're welcome for the moderation technique.

Generally you get the best hits from an atomizer designed specifically for concentrates.

If you don't want to get a dedicated atomizer there are solvents like ejmix designed to dilute your shatter to the point that it can be vaped in a normal tank. I'm not a big fan of these because they either taste bad, or add flavoring to cover up the funky taste.

I've also had good luck sticking a dab in the center of an unwicked clapton coil on an RDA.

No, it's not normal. It's a concentrate vapor pen.
I'm sure you understood the process I explained about cutting it up. So I will explain the part about using, loading, and smoking the pen. Again, this is related to the Source Vapes: Source Orb 3 pen. You can get the newer Source Orb 4 too, though again I recommend the Single Coil for making your 8th last longer. I have not tested the SO4, only the SO3.

Get your parchment paper full of 8ths from the freezer.
Pick up one 8th and place it into the atomizer gently push it down nicely onto the top of the single coil inside so it is only touching the coil. Do NOT force it down or pack it into the atomizer. When you press the button the coil will melt it down all on it's own.
Prime the wax by pressing the button for a few seconds a couple of times until the
concentrate melts down around the single coil.
At this point, you can place the top onto your pen and you are now ready to start smoking.
At a casual rate, I find my 8th lasts me 2 days. Then I repeate the process, get another 8th from the freezer and drop it in. These single coil atomizers will last 6-8 weeks.


I am interested in the SO4 with a Coil-less atomizer to see if I can produce the same moderation.

Not even being sarcastic but if you haven't used steam-engine.org to calculate the estimated ohms and other useful build math (like how many wraps around what diameter etc), it might alleviate some headaches. I'd still check it with an ohms meter or I'd say possibly even your device although I'm not 100% certain this is the best way to do it, so don't quote me on it. But yeah, that calculator might help you a bit in the mean time.

Try parallel builds, it takes a while to ramp up, and generates a lot of vapor through surface contacts. You should the parallel 4 OR 5 times (it will look like 10 or 8 individual coil wrap, but since its parallel and its two wires, it will be 4 or 5)

Martin Grimstock - Tue, 27 Dec 2016 00:48:01 EST ID:DnYtz/gI No.3207 Ignore Report Quick Reply
The whole point of parallels is to increase the surface area for the resistance, which in turn produces clouds at the expense of ramp up time.
Just like with espresso versus drip brew for coffee, you can go for weaker just fine. Strength isn't the whole point at all. It's about method. They both allow for more strength without ruining flavor, but weaker strength still holds better flavor anyway.

Seeing as OP was burning out at 4/5 standard wraps, only doubling the surface area for similar resistance is a good choice. Going for more wraps wouldn't solve a burning issue at all.
Though it's mostly wicking that causes burning in the first place.

But what I'm curious about is the "doesn't seem to last too long" part. Coils last practically forever as long as you torch and clean remains off when changing wicks. Dry hits or overheating flavors can ruin wicks easily, but shouldn't kill coils at all.
