so thanks to all of labpongs posts about enails, i bought a 16mm, stretched it out and then use alumminum foil for that last 10% of fit, mine was tight enough that it would had to rotate 90 degrees for it to fall out complete without resistance, but still sat loosey goosey - thats the reason for the foil.

the enail takes it to a another level!


omg on demand vaping like no other

Upgraded from using a benzo propane to a blazer big buddy butane was like night and day heating times for me.

Speaking of heating. Those that are using the beads in the heater with the coil, what size and best place to pick up? Not really concerned with getting better temperatures, just trying to add a little resistance and maybe change the air flow.

New user here, been having a bit of a rough time dealing with their company. I got sent some defective glass and I sent in a refund request. Fingers crossed they help me get it sorted out. Heres what the deal is (my return request I sent):
The standard water pipe adapter kit that was in my order had defects on both the water pipe adapter itself and the heater. The defects are as follows:
1.) The heater has air bubbles in one of the glass notches/spikes (the second spike down from the top of the heater) - these small air bubbles are collected near the very end/tip of the spike. Although it isn't immediately noticeable it is a defect that effects the longevity of the heater due to the repeated extreme thermal expansion and contraction of the quartz glass. The air trapped inside the bubbles would inevitably cause it to crack and break eventually, or even sooner then later. I'm not willing to use the unit to find out, and would like to return it for an exchange on a new heater.
2.) The standard water pipe adapter also has a collection of a variety of air bubbles in the base of the unit. Some of these bubbles are immediately noticeable and should have been noticed during quality control. Again the thermal expansion and contraction due to the high level of heating from the convection/conduction of the heat through the heater to the adapter will eventually cause unnecessary stress and potentially cause it to break. I'm not satisfied with this water pipe adapters quality.
Note: Although these defects aren't extreme they do most definitely jeopardize the overall lifespan of the product. They are also unsightly and not up to the standards that I would expect to receive from a premium product.

They also forgot to put the sick clip in the box entirely, only sending me the clips I had ordered seperately from the kit. I'm not super impressed but if they honour their return on defective items and fixing forgetting to send me the entire kit then I still have some hope, otherwise I'm not going to purchase their products ever again. I'm just choked because I spent over a month waiting for it in the first place. Posting this here so that I hope they see this and understand how to do buisness seriously and that its not just about making money. The customers satisfaction should matter to them. I will update to see how this goes with them. Thank you for listening to this annoying rant. Peace and love.

Can you show us some pics so we can compare with ours? There was a change in the way 7th floor does business several months back into 2019 I think. The glass making/blowing is now a separate entity from the online sales and marketing. They were having a hard time dealing with their time sucked up on computers instead of making cool glass stuff. I noticed some differences with this change as far as quality of order processing and such. But they always come through and delt with any issue I had.

Think I’ve finally nailed down the Elev8r. 35 second inaugural heating rotating once, then 20 second reheat, when the vape becomes uncomfortable to hold at the mid section I bump my reheats down to 15. My clouds are a little light but a lot of that has to do with my load size which is a little skimpy not even half full of a very medium grind. Taste was fantastic and effects were the same

you right on the $, getting vapor produce on the 3-4th second of inhale

what is your heating technique?

When i was using torch, i spun the elev8r in the bong itself and heated it in like 4 sections, i didnt bother to put extra time on the indents and just went up and down for a few seconds, rotated it 90 degrees and repeated

Damnit, combusted again last night trying to push my bowl for one more draw :lol:. "I think I've had my torch on too long" I thought as all the flames coming off the side were orange. Almost like a car accident in winter that you can see coming but there's nothing to do to stop it. The icey conditions were my stoned brain, I just had to see what was going to happen.

I really need an Auber RDK-300 to make my life easier.

Looking to blast off a little later and I want to do a combo hit in the Elev8r, looking for a load size of .15-.2 of flower and a fat dab of live resin. This will be the first time I've used the flavour disk and I'm looking for a good heat up time, I remember hearing a minute is that correct? With my big shot torch at the lowest sustainable flame I'm 35 seconds initial heat up for flower so I'm thinking I might need a bit longer than a minute, maybe 1:10? And how long for reheats? I don't want to have to hot of a dab but I still want the flower to mostly vape.

I wouldn’t call that a skimpy load. If you’re after clouds I think that you may need to give it a little longer with the torch; I’d suggest another 10-15 seconds on the initial heat up. It’s a shame that we can’t see the flame playing on the heater as the flares go more orange when it’s up to temperature. Maybe that’s something you could show if you decide to do another video?

I think that I have the same 18mm Mobius Sidecar knock-off as you. It functions okay but the shallow angle of the mouthpiece annoys me as I have to squat down to use it if it’s on a table. I also have a 14mm version from a different DHGate supplier that has a more upwards pointing mouthpiece and it gets a lot more use because of that.

I consider it a little skimpy for the Elev8r, so far in my experience smaller loads being a little farther away from the heater plus just more herb with the same heating will get bigger clouds. But your right with the smaller loads I could probably go at least 10 seconds longer heating. Still if I want big effortless clouds I'll use my Weedeater, I don't super mind a lighter session with the Elev8r it is really smooth and tasty and I'm actually trying to get away from higher temperature hits to be a bit more gentle on my lungs, plus I've combusted a few times chasing the clouds so I'm taking a more cautious approach lol 😂 And I start getting orange flame deflecting of the heater around the half way point and it just gets oranger and brighter but the time I'm done. I'll take it for another spin on the weekend and try and do a better job filming

On a side note I did attempt a combo hit and it was pretty much a disaster....... well maybe not a disaster I didn't combust but it only half worked. I heated for a minute and my first draw did nothing but melt my dab and maybe heat up the flavour disk a little, I reheated for 35 seconds and got my dab over the next few draws but then the vapour stopped so I did to and when it cooled down and I removed the disk the weed was still green and a little sticky probably from the dab so I do think it vaped at all. I recorded it but it was way too long and unremarkable to post, not my best vapour porn. Definitely going to wait on some advice before attempting again

I am a huge elev8r fan. Just came by to say thanks to advice of flipping the auber coil upside down (handle at the top) I got the heat down to 500f and giving huge tasty rips, can go down to 470 range for low pure flavor but 500 is nice. Was using a propane torch to great success before the rdk300 but the coil makes this thing next level excellence.

Is the elev8r steel bowl have iced glass or is it clear like the non steel bowl?

Elev8r SS screen bowl on the left, Grav 18/14 adapter that I use often with the coil in the middle. (mistake by china people on right...lol)

Not sure if they still do not put graphics on them......they seemed to stop doing that last fall or so.

thanks labpong, i believe u already reposted that pic earlier haha

im gonna buy another all glass one, i like it that its not iced so I can be mesmerized watching the herb turn yellow to brown from green, dunno why i get such a kick outta it - it kinda reminds me of like a slo-mo of a seed sprouting, but this is reverse, like the soil shrinks inwards haha

oh and i still run a screen with my screenless one haha

oh and I found that if you indent the aluminum foil into the nipples, it maintains the temp alot easier

not just wrapping the foil around the elev8r but actually indenting the foil into the nipples

Yep @Thunderstealer1337 I do the same by adding the screen to the all glass one too. When using the coil setup I get a more even cooks this way. Instead of just that one big hole at the bottom, your forcing the air path through those little glass holes. Seems to add circulation. YMMV

I just upgraded my setup with some (15) 4mm quartz pearls, fills around half the heater up so it’s not packed, now I’m running the rdk at 460 and it’s hitting hard and tasty, it can scortch now at 480-500 if you draw long and slow. This is a massive change from my start which was only getting clouds at 630+.

Recently purchased an elev8r, and outside of some qc issues it has been a big time hitter. Filled this one with boro balls and heat retention is easily doubled, but also increases your odds of combustion (which honestly without the beads I’d say is fairly low)

word of caution...my first wpa cracked, customer service was great sent me a whole second set. I haven’t put boro beads in the second unitbecause the first one has some visible marks caused by what I can only imagine is the expansion of the beads when heated and tightly packed. I’ve since removed about 25% of the beads and have seen no further issues.

tldr: if you fill your elev8r with boro beads, make sure it is not overfilled as they will expand and potentially damage your elev8r.
