I'm thinking the problem with replacement parts is how to price them. Obviously if you break down the unit's components and price them out reasonably, you won't come close to the $180 retail total package.Not saying it isn't worth the price (lot of research and development - I bought it and love it) but a good e-cig is $20, a small motor(aquarium style) is $20 - what's left - the remote, tubing and arm bands. My heating coil is burnt out - I should be able to replace that for under $10. Any thoughts??

I love this! I was lucky enough to see Joshua Jay lecture recently and saw him use it.... I bought one a week later and find that it works great! I'm not sure the charge lasts as long as I would like but there is a fair amount of flexibllity built into the unit. I like that I can use either the remote or the switch on the unit itself to activate it. I'm in a wheel chair and have some limitations ...I found that it's not a problem tho.

I get plenty of smoke from it. I just hope it's not overused and turns into getting a "ho-hum" reaction!

It lacks somewhat in the instructional area but can be pretty much figured out on your own. I was surprised by this because the packaging over all is great! Not a huge deal but needs to be mentioned. I certainly feel good about the purchase and am glad I took the plunge! I can't compare to other units but it sure beats the Hell out of that junk I was putting on my fingers and rubbing together to produce some fake smoke.....yuck! Smile

Have fun!

I am very surprised at the charge issues!

This unit has served me for dozens of performances, on different days, sometimes a week apart, without the need for charging.

Of course, I am using it once per audience....

David Regal's review (very positive) in Genii underlines the potential dangers of such a cool moment, if you read down the other reviews, pros and cons, in the same issue. Is this connected to charge issues?

Has anyone tried using this for the burned and restored shoe trick (wiz Kote, Oops machine etc)? I want to do this trick, but I don't excactly like the thought of using powder and igniters each time. It seems like a compact smoke machine like Vapr could be a good alternative. Has anyone tried this, or have any suggestions on this?

Great, it's good to know that I'm not the only one considering this. Do you plan to design and built the prop yourself, or retrofit an existing one to use it? One of the main concerns that I have about doing this is will the Vapr produce enough smoke to actually fill the box?

I confess, I've not read through all 29 pages of posts here, not do I wish to, so I'm hoping someone can give me a simply ye or nay regarding this query.
I just received my unit and there is noise emitted from two places on activation: the vibration of the main unit, which is very quiet in my opinion, and a kind of gurgling sound which is louder, from the vaporizer. The vaporizer is also nearer the audience, and the sound being emitted from the end of my sleeve doesn't seem a very good thing to me.

Can anyone confirm that this sound should or should not be heard? I suspect it should not, else imagine if hear the same sound coming from my 'Smoke' gimmick, for instance.
It's all in the reflexes.

Hey Illucifer,

The main unit noise is really a non issue, as it is muffled by your clothes and further drown out by ambient noise/music.

The 'gurgling' is simply an (over)full cartridge. Just activate it a few times to use up the excess fluid; the gurgling will go away.

Hope that helps.

I find that my heater coil broke after using it for 4 carriages ... Ordered a heater coil already but does anyone has the same problem ?

Hi there,

at the pump there is a special battery, which cannot be replaced, ot it has got an AA/AAA battery? Because I prefer those things, which can be easily repaired... It has got the same noise like pure smoke?

Hi,

according to the Sansminds Homepage the product is out of stock at the moment but finally the replacement parts are available.
Personally I think it makes no sense to buy every part individually because the total is much more expensive...

cheers

Just received mine up today. Ir works well right out of the box. Now I just have to find a place for it, as I rarely wear long sleeves.

Wear it under your pants and let the smoke emit from your fly. It would be a great ice breaker at parties.
