    When I first started vaping, there were far fewer options out there to choose from than there are now. One of the options that appealed to me most was the log vape. So... what is a log vape?

    Simply put, it's a vaporizer made out of wood. The plus side of this style of vaporizer is that it can be left on 24/7. Most of the older styles take no more electricity than a night light; especially when using a standard 12v wall wart. Another plus is the small amount used in a session. They are truly herb conservers. And when used with variable voltage can be cloud beasts. They can also be used for aromatherapy by placing a small cup with essential oils on top of the heat port.

    My first experience was with the Aromazap... shown here with stems made by @Ed's TnT

    [​IMG]

    Next up was the Rockzap.. this had a cement core for insulation and was a prototype.

    [​IMG]

    Which led to the CRZ (CeramicRockZap) which had ceramic insulation...

    Unfortunately, the whole Zap line is no longer available.

    I also purchased the Toasty Top.

    [​IMG]

    And from the same maker, the HI

    [​IMG]

    And from Epicvape, the eNano...

    [​IMG]

    And the newest creation from Ed's TnT; the WoodScents.

    All those hits and two more from this...

    Oh man those log vapes look beautiful.

    I definitely want....no need a log vape in my collection. Got my eyes on one of @Ed's TnT WS and a Custom HGL.

    The hard part is deciding what wood type and turn style to go for.

    Nice collection @momofthegoons

    Those are some amazing pieces; seems like you managed to amass some true collectors items @momofthegoons ! Do you have a favourite Log?

    I have a walnut WS on the way from @Ed's TnT. I'll be sure to post about once it arrives.

    My current log is a chinese pistache standard core made by Underdog! Love it. It's so efficient and tasty, I can get 3-6 bowls from it out of what would have been 1 in another vape. Every vaper who appreciates efficiency would benefit from a log, imo:money:!


    [​IMG]

    There is a small crack in it that turned this log into what they call a "Lost Dog". Discounted, unique pieces that have some small cosmetic defect that UD feels is below their usual standards of quality.
    [​IMG]

    The crack doesn't affect performance at all and after using it for ~4months it shows no signs of compromising the structure.

    You know... I don't. I love my old CRZ's... and have one plugged in 24/7. Same with the Toasty Top; although I use that mostly for aromatherapy. The all have something different to offer.

    The new WoodScents is pretty sweet. I like the new titanium core and think its a nice new innovation. And the temps with any log vape with variable voltage is a game changer. Brings it up to temps high enough that you can use concentrates. The newer versions like the WoodScents and the HI can handle the heat much better because of the lack of mass in the heat port area. They don't use any type of insulation and the wood doesn't get as hot. Therefore, the chance of the wood cracking is pretty slim.

    I have 7 logs meself! Expensive hobby, innit? :dog:

    3 Heat Islands, 2 UDs, 1 Toasty Top, 1 E-Nano.

    The Toasty Top is my favorite to look at because of its shape and its stand. Just lovely. Wonderful shape to hold, too. :naughty2:

    My favorite to use is my Bamboo HI with glass core. I love how gently it hits and how long a chamber will last. Plus it's so bloody light that it's perfect for using with glass pieces. Furthermore, it does not get hot to the touch at all, even at 12 volts - can barely even feel heat, really.

    But I switch them all up regularly. :weed:

    Just found this video that I did for the HI a while back. The variable voltage is the key to really getting good clouds; especially through water imo.
    Peeeectures or you're lying!!!! :naughty2:

    This looks very similar wood to my Homegrown, Sumac @momofthegoons ??
    [​IMG]
    I have an excellent relationship with the maker, Rastavapa and in a conversation we discussed the idea of running 'cordless'.
    RV had contemplated the idea but never followed it up, so I did.
    This is basically a prototype hence the unfinished base, I've got another set of internals getting made up so I can explore the idea a bit more.
    I'm going the opposite way to other manufacturers, I'm adding more mass.
    The set up as is works fine for high temps. but the internals don't hold enough heat at lower temps.
    I'm hoping I can find a happy medium.
    I'll also be modifying the wooden body so less heat is transferred to the wood and I will get round to making a proper base.

    :whoa:

    Holy @phattpiggie , that looks like a really interesting design. So is that platform like a heating dock then? I didn't see anything on the Log to activate it, so I'm guessing instead of having batteries it was hot when you detached it from the dock?

    @Prolusio spot on, instead of a long 'get in the way' power cord the log is powered up when docked, enough heat is stored for some very satisfying vapor. It just needs a bit of tweaking for the lower temp/voltages.

    I totally spaced out when I made my last post and neglected to include a vid that I had made (and just found) of my glass core HI when I got it. Just for shits and giggles...

    Excuse the man hand.... lmao

    Wow @momofthegoons - what an exquisite collection of logs - so quirky and so, so beautiful.

    @NickDlow - your collection is like a fine wine - it just keeps getting better and better - simply stunning!

    Agreed! Don't be shy @David Brent - show us what you've got! :naughty2:


    Loving the look of the cordless HGL @phattpiggie



    I recently acquired 4 HIs, which more than doubled my log collection:

    [​IMG]

    From left to right:

    • Light spotted bamboo HI (glass core)
    • Bocote log (made for me by a log lover, who wishes to remain anonymous)
    • Sumac and walnut mini-HI (SS core)
    • Olive Home Grown Log
    • Buckeye HI (SS core)
    • Walnut E-Nano
    • Dark spotted bamboo HI (glass core)
    I love them all, but use some more than others. I look forward to sharing my views on each in their corresponding threads (once they are up and running) :smile:

    I have an E nano now but had the pleasure of owning a Wychwood Log for my first. It got passed onto my father a couple of years ago. Finally worked to convert a 50+ year smoker :myday: to vaping after countless tries at all the other vapes I have had. At least I still get to see it when I visit.:biggrin:
