Thank you for all your hard work documenting the repair! You've done a major service to the community with your post and I'll be sure to refer others to your post in the future. It sounds like your Mighty is even better now which is excellent! I'm with you on the dosing caps, that's all I've been using to keep everything clean and they work really well. Almost too well when you fill the dosing cap holder and then keep loading new caps until you realize you're 8 caps deep and really high :freak:!

Hello! I joined team mighty recently so thought I'd sign up. I read through the thread on the old site from about page 500 before ending up here.

Appreciate the how to on the battery swap that is good to know so thank you!

My vaping experience started with a Haze V3 before I picked up a Firefly 2+ and now on to the mighty so will probably sell my Firefly and keep the haze as an Emery backup.

Loving the mighty so far so much less hassle than the firefly although it does make me cough badly even at lower temps.

I'm looking at getting a bubbler for it but considering using a whip from the original mighty mouth piece. Something about having water directly over the electronics makes me nervous.

I have no real experience with water other than the odd plastic water bottle bongs as a teen so I'm on the hunt now.

Also if I may add to the ongoing mystery of why the mighty wasn't made to stand up on its own. I always used to use Sony phones until after the Z5 and their phones always had really sharp corners and one thing I noticed over the years was that my right hand pockets always got holes in them! I think they kept it rounded just for ergonomics and I've just noticed where the filling tool is stored there is an notch which is intended for the tool to fit in the opposite way around. This to me would imply that S&B didn't give a toss about it being too heavy it unstable because that tool is a rubbish stand!

I couldn't stand (pun intended) that the Mighty could not stand on it's own. I ended up buying one designed for the Mighty. Works great. I think it was about 15 bucks. The stirring etc. tool thingy can be used to stand the device, but it is not very effective.

The little "railings" along the sides of the chamber are actually pretty delicate (and these were increased in size shortly after Mighty's release). The piece broke on my Mighty due to a simple face-plant (no fall) onto a table. The cooling unit was installed when it happened and did not provide ample protection. Even if Mighty were flat on the bottom, with square edges, I believe it's center of gravity is not low enough to make it viable.
So, I agree with the school of thought that S&B did not intend that Mighty stand on its' own and did not plan any cute little orange stick to be a proper stand.
I pro-actively recommend against trying to stand Mighty upright by itself, poker tool or no poker tool. When I use a stand, it's a glow-in-the-dark Delta3dstudios.

A whip can help, but you are on the right track thinking about water tool.
With use you can become less nervous, but you can also use something that Mighty sits on top of, like an MF Orbiter type thing.

Well guys, my Mighty is no more. I had it exchanged for a full refund with PIU as I was tired of being told that it was ok and the only other option they could give me is an open box unit. It seems to me in their response was.. that they insisted that it wasn't dropping 20 degrees with every hit. Also another reply I got from Puff It Up said they they only tested it with nothing in the bowl. I don't know, but I was done waiting. And just as I was in the checkout cart at S&B (getting ready to glady pay $100 more than PIU's Price on the Mighty) .. I started thinking about just picking up the hybrid instead.

I'm not sure what the problem was but I don't accept Open Box Units. Since my intention was just to go ahead and pay full price with it over at S&B, I'm actually thinking of just biting the bullet and jumping straight to the Hybrid instead. I'll be spending the next few days trying to make an educated decision on it. I think either way, I'll be buying another mighty again down the line after the Hybrid because I have a love/hate thing with my Dynavap and it's consistency with performance so I never use it anymore..

Anyone here have experience with both the Mighty and the Hybrid that doesn't mind giving me their personal pros and cons of each? Love to hear from you!

I own both for several month and they are hardly comparable. The best comparison would be using a dosing capsule with the whip on the hybrid and one capsule with the mighty. In this case the hybrid will give you the faster extraction, even at same temps. With pump assisted draws and a proper heatsoak you can finish a capsule in a few big rips on the whip. The mighty is always a longer session with a lot of draws but it is just super convenient to carry it trough the house or laying back on the couch/bed and sip. For me and my VAS, owning both is the best option😉. So I use my portables trough the day and end up with a desktop(mostly hybrid) in the evening. Using bags on the hybrid is also another great option which I use a lot.

I never got a sticker with a Mighty so you are lucky, it seems all the gold is for their anniversary so.
When I googled I think I saw the ones you got?

But they went a little step above for the Volcano Hybrid, they are textured decals with raised letters on a clear backing, and they're quite big.
It would have been really nice to get one of those badges they had a while back. I'll take ages figuring out where to stick these!

Yes the first pic is exactly what I have, Its just a very cheap sticker. those that came with the volcano seems to be of much better quality

As I mentioned a couple posts up, the batteries came from @JCat , though idk the spec, they are either 3,000 or maybe 3120 mAh versus 2700’s that came out.
They are Sony VTC6 batteries. These are very simply a great cell ... highly regarded in the vaporizer community. The specs for these are 3,000mAh rated capacity w/ 3,120mAh nominal capacity. There is more to a cell then simply the mAh though ... the discharge characteristics are equally as important, and the fact that the discharge characteristics are well matched/suited for the application.

This straightens out some confusion on my part. I knew that you clearly stated on your thread that you use the VTC6's, a 3120 mAh Sony. But I could see somewhat, through the over-wrap that you put on them, a "3,000". Thanks for the explanation.
