Other side of your screen
The original Vleaf Go post in oldFC was 60 days ago. I copy/pasted Vivant's exact title and post to start this one.

Have you contacted Vivant about moving their other product threads? Should I have done that prior to starting this thread?
I sent an email to them and they replied back that my request has been received and is being reviewed by their support staff. So hopefully they get on board.
To conclude this derail without moving posts (which always gets tricky): @vapviking, you did nothing wrong. We like to give manufacturers the chance to start their own threads, but we also would like to see threads moved over sooner rather than later. If a manufacturer is late to the party and feels the opening post isn't suitable, we can backdate a post of their creation so that it becomes the thread starter.

We now return you to the Vleaf Go.

This is VIVANT. We got the message from the stu on the old site yesterday and register a new account here. Thanks for helping us post a new thread here about our vleaf go. We still want to hear more feedback and disscussion on it. If have any problems or questions, we are always here. Thanks for all your support again.:leaf:

Are people still having issues with the screen sticking when trying to repack bowls?

Hey there, love your stuff, got myself two Ambits and some of my friends purchased them as well right after trying mine
Got the Vleaf GO on my wish list, going to get it pretty soon I hope

I was wondering, I take it you guys have probably watched reviews and received some of the user feedback - Do you plan on releasing a revision base on those feedbacks any time soon? Specifically, the hot vapor path and the screen falling out (With the current fix being the DDave mod screens)

Hey, we are optimizing the problems. About the problem of the screen falling out, we plan to use the same mesh in the mouthpiece of our AMBIT like the photo shows. If someone also has ambit, could you please try it and let us know if it works? Thank you!

Glad to see you here!
I really like the solid look of that ambit 'mesh'. My concern is that the holes may be a little large; with small diameter vapor path, air is moving very quickly and material can be pulled against the screen.
We'll see, looking fwd to some folks' reactions to trying it out.

I ordered one a few days ago, I doubt they will be opening the boxes that were wrapped in China to replace a single cheap screen. A 7mm VapCap screen is supposed to fit, or you could cut one, or buy from DDave (yes I’ve bought from him), but not going to wait for a simple screen.

I’m sure Jill will tell us if the Ambit disk/screen reduces the airflow more then a screen. Looking at all that EXTRA metal in the Ambit screen, I also wonder if it’s going to add CONDUCTION to the load, as it sits on top, making a bit of an OVEN?

What the company could do is TOSS an Ambit screen/disk in with all new orders, but after reading the reps post a few above, asking for users that have an Ambit screen to test it for them, is not inspiring to me, unless they don’t have a single Ambit on their shelves?

We think about a new mesh as the picture. What do you think?
I like the looks of this screen.
I do feel that a better solution would house the screen positively in a groove built into the silicone insert rather than the recess we've found (by happy circumstance?) as a place to put the thing.
@DDave's screen is an improvement, but it is fitted into a recess that just happens to be there, and it can still come loose on occasion.
It's not the "mesh" per se that we're complaining about, it is the installation.

I have been using the Ambit screen for a few days, and no doubt about it, it is much better than the stock screen (IMHO). It stays in place (although I did poke it out of place once with the top part of the oven when I didn’t center the lid when closing).
I like the ddave screen better than the Ambit one because it doesn’t need to be cleaned as often, but when I do take it out to clean, it loses its shape a bit and is a little cumbersome to get back in.

@VIVANT VAPE - I think that design could be great - the bezel around the mesh could solve the malleability issue.


I think it's a great little vape for the money. I bet you will like it.

Just don't compare it to a $300 vape.
💯 agree.

Did you notice any less airflow with the Ambit screen versus the normal mesh screen? Thanks

A little bit. The herb seems to stick to the Ambit screen more than the mesh one. It’s not a huge difference in air flow as long as you are okay with cleaning the Ambit screen more often.

Oh and the @DDave screen works just as well in the Ambit as it does in the Vleaf Go. I am keeping one in there permanently.

I compare it to $150-250 vapes all the time! (see signature) and I find I'll reach for it just as often as any one of them.
Quality of materials is a big difference; holding Go vs Grasshopper you can clearly feel the difference but sometimes the little 'pros' stand in favor of this Go thing. A Grasshopper will easily out-run a Go for big bong hits, but my lungs don't want those anymore (well they do, but they complain so much...). So, for casually having a few tokes, the Go is more efficient than a Mighty, has an easier draw than hopper or Mighty, temp settings I can actually see, and control system that lets me modulate like a Milaana.
So nice to have choices; now it's supply that may become an issue, starting to feel a corona crunch...

its cool for a sub $100 vape, super portable, gets super hot

wins in portability, like load it and hit it right before heading out da door, instead of having to fumble around with a torch, heat up cool down etc.....

taste is ok, still trying to figure out best way to load the bowl.

Hopefully that mesh fits well. After the first two or three times the ring/mesh stuck to the oven, I took them off and replaced them with a DDave Ti screen that fits in the end of the silicon air tube just as you show above using the Ambit mesh.

Seems to work well and and has not fallen off at all. So, i think your approach may well be a good solution (but do put some extras in the kit with the vape, yeah?).

Question, two issues with the documentation came up during testing; 1) the instructions on how to change temps is not completely accurate. Instead of just two clicks to change temp, it was two clicks to enter temp change mode THEN subsequent two click would cycle thru the three temp levels and; 2) no documentation on how to get into and out of "stealth" mode.

By the by, I did get another Go to give to a younger friend of mine who I helped transition from smoking to vaping....and he loves it.

Cheers

Just received mine today. Leaving it stock for now as I do when I test any new product. I’m being conscious of lining up cap before reattaching, to avoid stock screen falling out. Only two bowls in, no issue yet, but days will tell.

Surprisingly good taste at lower temp settings.
I’ll leave the silicone cover on all the time, helps make a better seal on my 14mm female glass.

Still adapting to this TINY bowl. Obviously much smaller then my Mighty bowl, but it’s easy to see that convection works if you scale it properly to the portable battery source. The Mighty bowl can be larger, as there are two 18650 batteries to heat up that bowl in approximately 1:30. Instant or on demand is the toughest challenge especially if you design small. I believe they did a good job juggling all these factors in a small form factor. This of course limits the bowl size, which for small doses is fine. The biggest hit, is short battery life. At home, I’ll just plug it in after every session.

The Vleaf, I like being able to “on demand”, and hit at my leisure, but the good hits don’t last long, as now the tiny bowl size dictates a refill. On the Mighty, with its “hybrid” system, the only way to stop and start, is to dump my capsule out and turn the unit off, and continue later. This only works if you don’t mind dealing with the capsule system.

Currently, the only portable true convection vapes I use are SplinterZ, Stempod OG V1. Same relationship of overall size, bowl/load size, and power. So those two devices are larger physically, hold larger loads, and require larger battery capacity.

As some have noted, for $55 delivered, it’s almost a throw away, depending on your personal finances, but most here obviously own many vape devices, probably all more expensive then this one. So with a non replaceable battery, that will most likely dictate its life, unless of course someone figures out how to DIY a new battery.

Overall, two bowls in, I would recommend this device. While giving feedback here to the manufacturer is always recommended, don’t be disappointed if you don’t see improvements in this model. Eleaf being a parent company here, normally adds improvements to the next model. This I know from the ECig world where Eleaf is a major player and I’ve purchased many of their products. Most are very good, and the occasional dud. They do however like to innovate and upgrade.

Now back to testing in the name of SCIENCE......

still trying to figure out best way to load the bowl.
I have gotten in the habit of dipping the tip of it into my Chico of ground herb, tapping it once or twice with it's tail on my vape station to settle the load, and tamping the load slightly with an unsharpened pencil (perfect size). Works very well for me. When out I still tend to dip it into a Chico but need to use a short tablet stylus to tamp it.
