Hi All,
I did read the forum that said edibles, medibles but could not find a better place for this question (sorry). I have been looking at Iolite, and Vapir, I want something small portable and easily cleanable. Does Iolite only use their brand of butane? how have any of you liked these products would like some feedback.
Sorry Diz, I have tried medibles and I just cant seem to get the desired effect!!

Thanks to all in advance for your reply,
lilbuddy

I've tried the iolite portable and a "volcano" knock-off which worked just as a volcano does. (We tested heat ranges and times side by side) After using them both for what I consider to be ample time, I hated them. But both for different reasons. The iolite portable was a pain in the arse and it really didn't work as I was expecting. If all butane portables are like that one, I wouldn't bother buying one. Now the volcano knock-off worked just fine but I found that my med effects didn't last as long as hoped and I really didn't see much of a medication savings over a period of time vs. using a pipe. If I did ever want to vape again, I would probably end up just building one as they aren't that complicated and there are many techniques across the net that you can adapt it to.

I love the iolite portable. It draws hard, so I see why some people do not like it. It heats fast and can be used anywhere. You can get it on ebay for around 130. You have to use the recommended butane though, I think there is around 5 brands. Colibri butane is recommended and is available at smoke shops near me.

The extreme is a solid product too and a great value.

I like the iolite for groups, the Magic Flight Launch Box for personal use (with the power adapter), the Extreme Q V4 when I want to fill bags with vapor and like Long Hair Bri, the Omicron vaporizer when I want to vape oil.

Oh, and I recommend using Vector 5X refined butane for the iolite (and for BHO).

Hey Daily Toker,
I am a big DIY person. Can you head me to links to make my own vape?

Arizer Solo. Very portable, well designed, battery powered, good temp regulation. I bought it from suggestions here after mentioning here that my main vape experience was with the Magic Flight Launch Box. THAT is, of course, the ultimate in portability. The Magic Flight folks will wax ecstatic regarding the science behind why they believe it to be a superior vaporizer, but I was never really that enamored with it. But I love the Solo.

As far a DYI, I looked around a bit a while back and the main methods seem to be either opening a lightbulb & cleaning it out (WELL, some nasty stuff inside) and heating it, or with various vaporizers designed around a temperature controlled heat gun. Nothing seemed very elegant in design, nor precise, nor portable. If you do find some interesting DIY vapes, let us know about it here!

You can pretty much just type it into google and they will all pop up. https://www.google.c...ake a vaporizer

Most methods include using a cheap ($10) soldering iron. The idea I have for one (just floating around in my head) would be to use a more expensive unit (in the $20-30 range online)and build a controller based on voltage with a heat trigger to 'idle' when it hits your desired temp. I would probably implement a small digital readout, couple LED lights and obviously an on/off switch. I am good with composites so I would probably make the base out of carbon fiber with two glass chambers. Carbon Fiber itself is not flammable but the resins are. However when they are cured the heat resistance jumps way past 1000*f which the vape would never reach. Looks cool in my head? :D Past just being cool I believe it would function pretty nice.

I believe the white powder inside incandescent bulbs is phosphor, which on a more pure form is highly toxic. However I "think" manufactures cut that toxicity down by making the phosphor more impure by adding other rare earth materials. Most of the "bulb" methods are pretty bunk and not even worth trying. I believe the heat gun methods are also a bit on the ghetto side. Reason being IMO the point from taking the temperature from cold to hot takes too long thus creating a dry heat blasting chamber which I feel destroys your meds before getting the benefits when you vape. Again, this is just my theory and I have no proof. But it sounds good right? <_<

if you want a bag vape go with a volcano if you can afford it or an extreme q. If you want a box vape then I would go with vapor brothers. If want portable the vapir 2.0. Just my opinion hope you find one that works good for you. Vaping is becoming a way of life for me and my health.

Never done this, but I thought about it: Use an electric oven as the heat source. Use some sort of container to hold the meds, I was thinking metal, or a type of glass that can take vape temps. Metal flex hose threaded up through the hole in the one burner that lets the oven vent up through it. The newer flat tops wouldn't work. The metal flex hose would be hot coming up out of the oven. Maybe a ceramic or wooden mouthpiece over it would fix that. Just a rough idea I kicked around, but never tried it..... or worked the bugs out. Idea popped into my head when I noticed our new oven has a digital temp. display..... and the old gears started churning, but then realized it wouldn't work with a flat top. So, I shelved that idea..... and just dusted off that idea, when I saw this post. LOL

Hey, yes as per my knowledge it uses only the butane brand as it is only the most effective for that vaporizer device.

Guys if you want a vaporizer that will do both, i would suggest waiting for the Persei vaporizer. It can do both herbs and oils, but the herb chamber is currently in production.

Be careful f the vapir wasn't that the one that went out of business due to importation problems? Heard it was a good machine but no replacement parts.
