I know I'm a little late to the party, but I just got my Vapr unit a couple of days ago.

There isn't much to say that hasn't been said. We all know exactly what it is, what it does, and how it works. Having said that, this remains one of the most well produced pieces of magic kit I have seen in a long time. Everything about the unit oozes quality. The package, the DVD, and the unit itself are all premium caliber. This is the finest smoke device for magicians ever devised.

Regarding noise, I wouldn't sweat it. The unit is pretty quiet, and once installed, under clothing, any noise it does produce is muffled, and is more then adequately covered by natural ambient noise.

As far as effectiveness in light of the emerging cultural awareness of e-cigarettes... Meh.

I wouldn't worry about that either. Did people think 'Where was the cigarette hidden?' when we used smoke gimmicks before e-cigarettes? Maybe, maybe not. Did it matter? Not an iota. The smoke is not, and should never be, the PRIMARY effect. It should only be used as a SUPPLEMENTARY effect, that is used to amplify the primary effect. Just because some of the general populous are aware of our means, does not mean they are aware of our ways. Bottom line, with proper routining, the audience should believe the smoke is emerging as a result of what you are doing; not separate from it. If you use the device correctly, they won't think 'where is the e-cigarette hidden', they will believe the smoke is a direct result of what you are claiming to do. End rant.

Bottom line. If you are looking for a smoke device, look no further; this is the best you can get.

Nice post Sean. Couldn't agree more

Anybody else had issues with SANSMIND? I ordered something from them (VAPR) on the 6th of December. I still don't have my items. I've been chasing them up and emailing them many times but nobody is replying to my emails.
I guess my next step will be to contact my credit card and try to get my money back. Anybody else had issues with SANSMIND? I'm also posting this message hoping that they will reply to me. SANSMIND if you are here, can you please stop ignoring my emails? (here's my order number: 2100001227) I've been doing magic for 20 years and this is the first time I have such an issue with a magic dealer. Terrible customer service.

Hey,
Have you tried their contact form directly on their webpage?
I sent a request in December and received a reply within 24hours...

Cheers

Just received mine and spent a few moments taking a look at it. All I can say at this time is the packaging is fantastic!

When charging the main unit, what position should the switch be in? Should the switch be Left in the off position, Middle in the on position or Right remote only position?

Should the Vaporizer be connected to the charge cable at the same time the Main unit is being charge even though there is no LED light on the Vaporizer? According to the booklet, no light on the Vaporizer indicates the Vaporizer is apparently fully charged.

Hi nonvpro,

I'm not sure but I always switch off the main unit during the charging mode. The off position is the switch closest to the USB port. As far as I understood the instructions you can charge all parts separately or the vaporizer and one of the USB-units. I hope this makes sense Smile

Cheers

Nikki,

Thanks for the reply.

Another question. When charging the units, do you have let them fully discharge before you recharge them? If the LED light(s) still indicate there is a charge, can the they be "Topped off"? I wasn't able to locate anything specific on the DVD or booklet pertaining to my question.

At Sansminds Magic on their promo video for Vapr, they show a effect with a picture of a doll intact. After the Magic happens both the doll in the picture and the picture itself appears to be burnt. Anyone know what the name of that particular effect is?

Been playing with mine for a few hours now and everything seems to be working as it was designed. Haven't had any issues as of yet. The amount of 'smoke" produced is satisfactory. However, a little bit more smoke would have been welcomed.

I'm a full time restaurant performer. I can tell you from many years experience performing in restaurants, bars, banquets, private parties and basically anywhere people gather socially, the amount of noise produced by the main unit as it is called in the booklet is absolutely a non-issue for me. However, as stated by some here at the Café, if you are performing in a completely quite environment, sterile of any ambient noise whatsoever, then there is a distinct possibility you most likely would hear noise from the main unit. In the real world performance arena, it's not a issue.

I also came to the conclusion, the position of the main unit under the arm with the arm band, somewhat limits my positioning and flexibility performing some effects in my repertoire. There are times I need to extend my right arm, which then prohibits me from activating the main unit. I discovered as many probably have, both the remote and main unit can be used simultaneously. This allows for more flexibility in body movement. I made a leg strap for the remote I wear on my left leg. This allows me to simply drop my left arm and activate the remote undetected.

Couple of questions:

1. It was mentioned that replacement parts were/are available. If possible, would someone please post a link for them?
2. Is it possible to leave the units connected to the charge cables and plugged in until ready for use?

All three components were fully charged for my gig last night. Everything was turned on at 5:15 pm for my gig and my gig lasted for 3 hours, got home and turned everything off around 9:30 pm. I checked my main unit just now and the battery was dead. Is this normal?

I have asked the following questions before and have yet to receive a response. Kyle, would you please be kind enough to post a reply. Thanks.

Hey nonvpro,

Personally I didn't have any battery problems so far and I don't know where you can buy the spare parts.
Instead of hoping to get a reply here some day I'd suggest you should either contact your magic dealer or the manufacturer...

Cheers

As Kyle has been very helpful answering questions in this thread thus far, I figured he would continue doing so. I have pm'd him several additional times with my current questions, but as of yet, he has not responded.

are you sure you switch it off the right side? the first time my battery died quick it was because I turn the switch to the remote only side and thought it was off left it overnight and died.
