I would have to agree! Filled my first bowl way to full and tamped it down a little with a chopstick, took forever to produce anything, I knew immediately I did something wrong. Wish I had a bit more time with it, what I did get it to do was very impressiveTo me, it seems if you fill the ELB too full, it takes longer for the product to come to temp. But that might be because I have Old-Man-Former-Smoker lungs. Do what works for you.
That's a slick system imo .I know some people don't like the ELB's, but I think they are fantastic. When I got the unit it came with two, and I purchased four more just in case which was a waste. I've used the same ELB every day for four months, soaking it every other or third day in PBW overnight. I think it still looks like new.
I have a question about the Evo. Mine will sometimes flash green, not green and red. I'll turn the Evo off and on again and it will continue flashing green. If I turn it off for around 10minutes it's usually fine after that.
I've googled the problem, but couldn't seem the find the answer.
Personally I think the device might be overheating. Does anyone know what it means?
It's not a fault, it's the unit telling you it's in standby mode. The unit only stays "on" for a fixed period of time, if you don't shut it off it shuts off itself and that is what the light is telling you.That's a slick system imo .
As I recall, the EVO instructions don't identify flashing green as indicative of anything @Cheap Vacation; so it isn't an overheating signal... and whatever fault is causing that unanticipated behavior is unknown . You could always reach out to VapeXhale and see what they have to say.
Sorry for the mangled grammar in my last post. The EVO had me feeling greaat on Friday . It was only low temp vaping last night (11 o'clock on the dial). 've vaped some leftover fresh flower grind from last night with Golden Goat so far... and will finish the high temp vape draws with yesterday's flower. I think it will be a concentrates Saturday eve too .
Enjoy the weekend.
Auto shut-off is flashing green and red as @Cheap Vacation mentioned and as described with the EVO instructions.It's not a fault, it's the unit telling you it's in standby mode. The unit only stays "on" for a fixed period of time, if you don't shut it off it shuts off itself and that is what the light is telling you.
It's an oversensitive over-heat protection. As you figured out, the only way around it is to wait few minutes to cool down and restart....Mine will sometimes flash green, not green and red. I'll turn the Evo off and on again and it will continue flashing green. If I turn it off for around 10minutes it's usually fine after that... ...Personally I think the device might be overheating...
This makes sense to me. I usually have the temperature around 1-2 o'clock, and this the time it will do this.It's an oversensitive over-heat protection. As you figured out, the only way around it is to wait few minutes to cool down and restart.
My EVO will go into this mode every time I turn it on while it's actual current temperate is above about 1 o'clock on the dial.
Hence why it's oversensitive - it's not actualy overheated, but it thinks so. It tests it at every startup and triggers even at those normal operating temps at 1-2 o'clock and above.
It never triggered at any other time that at startup, so as long as you don't restart it while heated up it shouldn't be a a problem. And if you use it below these temperatures you should be able to quickly restart anytime.
And if you get it, just wait few mnutes and restart. Then it will not get triggered and it will heat up.
happy to see you back. knew you wouldn’t leave us hanging! Keep up the good vibesHappy EVO Friday everyone . It's CANtalk here with a new handle. After my weekly break today an ELB combo of Red Congolese, Strawberry Cough and Sour Tangie seemed appropriate (all strong sativas) . Highly recommended.... and the EVO killed it here today .
@Bad Dog, thx for sharing the pictures! Very impressive considering that was a broken EVO... I hope you can try an unbroken EVO. A normally functioning EVO brings the goods . Premium desktop vapes each have their own unique advantages and disadvantages... and what the EVO brings is top notch for what it offers (a top end heater and super responsive (matches the FP specs for example), clean clean air path, microdosing and macrodosing capability with super fast bowl changes, low temp and high temp variability from sipper to ripper and highly recommended with both flower (ELB) and concentrates (glass VapeXnail) .
Bring on the EVO talk and enjoyment.
