The Elev8R Vehicle Water Pipe Adapters are used alongside the Elev8R Quartz Heater as part of the Elev8R E-heater Full Kit for Dry herb and Concentrate vapourisation. Both of these should be filled loosely, no matter whether you're filling partially or to right near the top. This will allow air to travel through and around your herb providing the largest clouds and most even vapourisation. Never Tamp, if anything you can pack the chamber then stir it with the Marble Pick to ensure it is nice and fluffy! We would also suggest a medium or course grind to ensure the best performance.
There are two available options:
The first is the Original Evev8R Vehicle Water Pipe Adapter (WPA). This has a 20.8mm Stainless Steel mesh screen inside and a larger chamber. Having mesh means it's suitable for very small right up to very large amounts of herb, with a dry herb capacity of between 0.06 - 1g max. The exact capacity will depend on the density of your herb and the grind.
The second option is the All Glass Elev8r Vehicle Water Pipe Adapter (AGWPA). This has straighter sides with no curved glass around the base of the chamber, it also has a glass screen which sits higher up inside the AG WPA, the combination of these two modifications makes for slightly increased vapour production from a given load size. This increase in vapour production is enhanced by the Quartz Heater sitting slightly lower down inside the AGWPA than it does in the regular WPA. These changes make for a more efficient heater setup, allowing you to run lower temps than on the regular WPA. We tend to drop them by around 10F to accommodate for this. The possible downsides of the AGWPA are as follows; it has a less flexible capacity due to the straight sides, raised glass screen and lower heater setup, closer to 0.1-0.5g. The glass holes are also larger than on the mesh holes and the screen is made from glass, this makes it slightly less suitable for very small loads as the glass conducts some of the heat away from the herb and small pieces of herb can pass through the glass filter. This can be entirely negated by installing a 15.8mm mesh screen above the glass screen, allowing for smaller loads which are vapourised more efficiently with lower temperatures, which is how we run this setup. Doing so allows for small loads of around 0.05g to larger loads of around 0.5g. We have also found the AGWPA provides a slightly more even cook to the contents of the chamber and with this a slight increase in vapour production from loads of around 0.2-0.4g.
Both Elev8R WPAs are compatible with the porous ceramic Flavor Disc for concentrate use.
When loading the herb chamber more heavily you can also put a little concentrate on top of herb, this will soak down into herb increasing the effects. Crumbly concentrates are easiest but you can also put a little on a dab tool then heat it so it drops off.
Which is better?
That we can't answer for you as we firmly believe this is down to personal preference and how you plan to use it. We use both and love both.
