Has anyone messed with the calibration aspect of the Ghost?
I messed with it quite a bit and i'm almost convinced it's not doing anything or at least not what we think it should be doing. I stopped messing with it as i was achieving worse results on both green and red. It is worth expiramenting with though as it's so easily reversable and maybe your unit might somehow benefit from it.

One on the right was my original ghost. Below are pics of the defect. Some peeling was beginning on the back. Ghost sent me another unit. Unit still works fine! Looking for Rose Gold now

I did it.. mine was getting too hot and was getting overheated very easily. Haven't had overheating warnings in a while, but even after the calibration to lower temps, it still gets quite hot very fast. I've dropped it several times so I can't blame it.

I'm always confused when people talk about GhostVapes like they were some kind of scam. They had the best customer service and replacement policy of any company out there as far as I can tell. My wife's died after two years and they replaced it no questions asked. Luckily that was a few weeks before they went under. They certainly had some design and quality control issues, but I didn't ever see them operating in bad faith.

They just tried and failed, it happens.

I posted on the old site that I was able to fix my Stealth door latch problem. I had a good several years use without problems, then dropped it, breaking off part of the latch plastic. I initially glued the plastic back on, but it eventually failed again. I then searched for a a more permanent solution, and am happy to have found one. If you look at the pictures posted on the previous page, the hinged latch part is the last few photos I believe. In any event, the latch itself is comprised of two plastic lines to which a solid angled piece is molded. It is that solid angled piece that breaks or wears off after time.

This time, I used a 1/32 drill bit that fits into the channel between the two plastic lines, as close to the edge as possible, so the angle is consistent with that of the latch. I then drilled through the latch door. (It is easier if you remove the door from the MV1 first). Then you but a size 3 x 5/8 wood screw and screw it part way into the hole. You need to check to find the correct depth to hold the crucible holder closed, but still allow it to open. I needed to drill a little through the hole into the crucible holder to allow greater depth of the screw. For that you will want the latch back on the MV1. A photo shows the final solution. The screw not only holds the crucible door closed, but it makes for a good lever to hold the latch open for opening and closing. The parts cost me .50 at a hardware store. I probably could get by with a size 3 x 3/8, or even 3 x 1/4, but I like the extra amount to use as a lever,

If anyone no longer wants their Ghost MV1 because of the latch problem, I am more than happy to take them off your hands to use for parts. I still love this vape and intend to use it until I find something better. Went back to my Haze Dual Chamber on the night it broke. As much as I loved that Haze the Ghost puts it to shame.

Good luck.
THE DOOR:
Absolutely, unquestionably a total waste of time to deal with the latch; REMOVE THE SPRING. there is more than enough friction between the green silicone rubber inserts above and below the closed crucible door to make the latching mechanism superfluous. You can use your fingernail to easily open the door, instead of dealing with the Achilles heal of this machine. I previously posted pictures of my broken stealth latch (where is the 'plastic' - it is all powdered metal molded on the latch ( the true problem, too weak for intended service). Bottom line: they should have uncomplicated the latch mech early on. Many vapes rely on silicone polymer interference fit. The door should have been cast with a flip-open lever and the spring tension should have been seriously reduced. The latch returns would have been nil, the outrageous MSRP could have been maintained with continued advertising and reviews and the outcome would have been - well, one never knows, do one?
No prob. BTW, I just tested... If i stay at red temps, I get a couple less hits than if i started at lower temps... huh, had not noticed that.
Anyhow, make sure your are not unintentionally over-packing the crucible or packing it in a way in which airflow is restricted. Someone pointed out to me that i was filling with more herb than last time we had met and I really wasn't aware of it, so i guess it could have happened to you too.
get yourself a 0.001 reading scale and put 1.30g in the crucible of medium-fine ground herb Push the crucible lid down to seat, pllace in MV1. Step up in temp from 1 yellow to 2 red with 6 draws (2 0n 2 x red). If you set the two reds to 428F you will have extracted most, not all, THC.
Put that AVB in a Dynavap and heat 3 seconds past the second click.
Now, friends, you are well toasted.
