    I have seen some posts on youtube about vaporizer pens that are good for smoking oils. Does anyone have any experience with these?

    yes some of them are awesome. from what i can tell theres a couple types- ones you load oil directly into heating element area and ones that contain cartridges. Now if i could jsut figure out how to load cartridges i would love em even more.

    Last full charge and cartridge gave me over a 200-300 hits. I didn't count but well over 200/250.

    I've tryed 2 different kinds Omicron V1 & The New Trippy Stix

    The Omicron hit good 4 about 2 weeks but it died.. I think the Cart went out

    The new Trippy Stix doesn't have a cart u juss drop the goo/Wax rite in2 the Stix & hit its still going strong.. I like the Trippy Stix 4 it super eazy 2 load & use..

    Both need 2 b cleaned everyday so it don't get clogged.. The omicron carts last longer but the Trippy Stix hits harder & eazier..

    ok im still mixed on several versions of the vape pen i was a tester of the omicron & ive picked up each version since. best ive found is the gpen or the new 710 pen. its the cart & ease of treloading which make these the winners. you can also get cartomizer carts for the omicron but most seem to carry the aftermarket g unit. heres a couple pics. ive got the perseii which has an adapter so you can use 1 or 2 carts for bigger tokes. hard to make operate reliably, way overpriced, next omicron v2, aftermarket carts dont fit this one i found it useless, then the omicron original with g unit adapter. almost perfection. charger & leaky carts only issues. omicrons 002.JPG omicrons 003.JPG omicrons 004.JPG omicrons 006.JPG omicrons 007.JPG omicrons 008.JPG omicrons 014.JPG omicrons 015.JPG

    the E-ssential ones work pretty good. they take cartridges that have been modified by oil heads to work well.

    prob like a lot of you, i bought a bunch of different ones. wasn't' really trying to do a big experiment, but that's what it turned into as they were all pretty lame til i got the http://thermovape.com

    no i don't work for them or know anyone there. bought it last because my budget was limited, big mistake and cost me more. yes they are expensive (but non-throwaway/cleanable cartridges, unlike the rest) and well worth it if concerned with your health.

    E-ssential is the same, resusable cleanable cartridges.

    Do these modified laser pointers really work ? I like my teeth in my head. The whole battery thing is a turnoff to me.

    they work awesome for smokin in casinos, and lowkey tokes are the only reason to have one, so people think youre smoking an e cig, im shocked how little they smell, especially containing heated oil. but i was just standing in the smoking section and noone could smell me ripping it up. BLAZE ANYWHERE, noone knows

    im with grod, ive tried a few and my (imitation) gpen works best of the ones ive used. i have wanted to try the e-ssential,, but im not gonna buy another till this one goes out and who knows what we'll be ripping then...

    i will say though, HMK. you sayin theyre the ones to rock doesnt go unheard...

    it doesnt burn off of the battery, it just leaks down the air hole if you were talkin about grods pix. Grod, u should clean that off before you charge it. it burns off a coil the battery powers, you can take the rubber deal off too grod, it helps get to the nail eaiser. dont buy tthe cheaper carts(they come with a screw down cap) the coils blow out really quick. ive had success cleaning these carts too.

    I rock the g pen pretty hard, well I actually rock two of them. In fact since I'm on the go all the time I rock it every day. I've smoked about about a zip of wax though my 2 g pens and they still work great, same 2 original cartridges and batteries for last 4 months.

    I found that the less I load the cleaner and better the g pen works. I load just enough to sit in the cermaic heating thing.

    I'm a happy g pen owner...

    I load the same way, and I blew thru 3 carts in the first week, lol. Everybody keeps telling me I gotta be doing something wrong but I watch them do it and I'm not doin anyhing different, just individually shoddy I suppose, like Evoke n his battery, they're mass produced in some third world shithole, every Nth one is gonna be crap

    you mean the essential vaaapp pipes with the glass vial? those are really a different animal, require a lighter, not discrete for open/public use - but yeah they are a great option for manually controlling the heat to actually vaporize instead of burn like all the vape-pens with cartridges. same company has ones for glass fittings too.

    i'd be careful on Dz's advice re public use though, while they might be easy to play off as an e-cig, mmj is so common where i live that lots of people already know (no doubt leo does). smell can depend on what you put in it (i already got called out once when i thought it wasn't noticeable)

    looks like plastic? and the parts inside? def not anything i'd want to inhale from, materials with VOCs, BPA, lead -solder, fiberglass/silica, polyester, etc.

    seriously guys, doesn't even just regular smoking through glass/ti seem much healthier? thermovape has all biologically-safe materials, and much safer battery/circuit to address the 'explosion in your face' issue (the nature of all these devices is they pull a lot of current from a tiny powersource, really stresses the unit which is why most of the others are ultimately disposable)

    here are pics of what's inside some of the unhealthy ones (and most brands are even worse), all in the vapor-path, your oil/wax sits in contact with the unsafe parts, then all gets heated, cooked, burnt when you use the device, it's inevitable due to those designs..

    The e-ssential isn't the one you're thinking of with the vials, it's more like these pens.

    True, no one listen to me, I'm obviously WAY too comfortable blazing, I'm a med patient in socal

    The cup part is ceramic, but I'll agree with everything else you said, especially the lead solder. I had a feeling the wire coil wasn't the best method to heat oil with either, and when the carts are new the wick has something on it, I would always heat em till they stopped smoking before I'd load it for the first time(yeah, there was something out of the box that will smoke on the wicks)

    A lot of people aren't aware there are health concerns from using these things, good info
