Elev8's Baller Series Heater - Ruby Ball Conversion kit for SSV (Silver Surfer Vehicle) is the ultimate upgrade for your Super Surfer Vehicle (SSV). With just under 200 x 3mm ruby balls, this kit adds some airflow restriction, improved flavour and smoother vapor. It also provides epic vapor production with reduced temperature settings for a massive increase in efficiency. This allows for faster extractions and a much higher possible maximum temperature!
This kit converts the SSV into a fully fledged ball vape, increasing the vapor production by almost an order of magnitude (probably... it's a lot, it's hard to express how much more!). This is highly recommended for people who like thicker clouds and higher temperatures! For many people leaving your SSV on the lowest setting will now provide full satisfaction... and we never run this setup higher than 12 o'clock on the dial! Like most people we previously ran the SSV close to or at max power in its original format, to provide a comparison.
Available in two styles, we have the Spherical joint heater cover and the Conical joint heater cover for those of you with fatty conical wands or using DBV conical wands with your SSV. The Conical Baller Series heater cover is currently exclusive to Recommended Vape Supplies, requested specifically for our customers with conical wands!
Having a glass housing, Ruby balls and an Alumina Ceramic heater, the Baller Series Conversion Kit provides an airflow path which would be considered very pure, with the mesh screen being the only metal part! Prepare yourself for huge amounts of super clean and tasty vapor! The flavour is one of, if not the best we've come across from any vaporizer!
Simply remove your old housing, put the new one in place, then carefully pour your balls in. When the heater has just been covered, pop the Glass Cap on the Heater Housing and you're good to go! Initial pre-heat takes around 10 minutes, or you can turn it up to max for 5 mins, then reduce the temp to 10 or 11 o'clock on the dial and leave it for a couple of minutes to drop down.

Listing is for ball conversion kit only.
If you ever need to adjust your housing, always remove the balls first or you risk damaging the heater cover and heater due to the balls being packed inside!
This upgrade supercharges the thermal heat mass by adding lots of small ruby balls to the heater housing. After allowing it to heatsink it will allow you to run at lower heat settings. I had to adjust my drawspeed as the ruby balls will restrict it slightly. I found long gentle inhalations worked best for me. A very good upgrade and I am getting better extractions without running at full power.
Hi Adi thanks for the review!
Honestly, I was in two minds when I purchased the Baller Conversion Kit. This was after Matt sent me a video showing what it did with small 10 second inhales.
However once it was installed which took less than 5 minutes & up to temperature my concerns about value for money & usability vanished.
Anyone with an SSV will know that it's basically a set it * forget it session vape. You turn it to maximum & once it's up to temperature away you go and the longer you inhale the more vapour it produces.
Forget that, the Baller Conversion Kit turned my SSV into a new vaporiser. It now has a variable temperature range, with my little 10 second inhales you can use the whole dial. Before you attempt this be aware it gets very hot on maximum & I would be concerned about the potential for combustion if you are one of these super 30 seconds and counting tokers! It produces what I can only describe as "smoother vapour" & it extracts past the point that the stock SSV gives up. To me the flavour is better for longer unless, you crank it to maximum, then the flavours lasts about the same as the stock SSV.
Unlike stock, you now have the ability to crank it up as high as you dare to get super fast extraction, which is a godsend when you want to zone out quickly or hurt. Plus unbelievably, I now don't cough. I think this is due to the fact that the combination of ruby balls & the redesigned conical head restrict the airflow either that or the guys at Elev8 have worked some Juju into it.
If you are buying a new SSV buy this too & save a few quid & if like me you have a SSV and are on the fence about the cost etc jump off and order the upgrade, you won't be disappointed!
Thanks for the review I'm really pleased you're getting on with it so well. I'm completely in love with mine too XD.
