    Hello Lisa. I would like to ask you if and when you re going to have wizard mods for sale on your site.

    Hi fermthe,
    We are expecting the next batch of Wizard's Apprentices sometime later this month, hopefully. Please ensure you are subscribed to the Apprentice newsletter on the site to hear as soon as they arrive, as we're expecting them to sell out rather quickly.

    Hey Lisa, I saw the notification that the Apprentice goes up for sale Friday and Saturday evenings. Can you give an idea of the time, will another announcement be made before the sale goes live, or should we just F5 and pray? I'm hoping to jump on the 18650 before they disappear.

    As long as I'm here, I hope you'll forgive a little further imposition on your time. I've read elsewhere that the previous release of the Apprentice had some inconsistency issues with the touch sensor. Do you know whether the v2's touch sensor addresses these problems, or is its only intentionally updated feature its ability to accept a Kick?

    Hiya Rojo,
    Can't give any more information on exactly what time they are going up as last time we did that for a product, it brought the site down with about a thousand people all trying to get on at the same time.
    It will be between around 7 and 10pm GMT.
    We had a few units that went back to Mark Bugs for repair on the last issue - we're unsure what exactly caused this, but believe it was either to do with incorrect battery insertion, or possibly finger on the sensor while trying to insert battery. The circuitry has been completely redone, mainly to accommodate the kick.

    However, there weren't actually any inconsistency issues with the touch sensor - that is entirely to do with hands being very dry or in a climate with no humidity or that's been dehumidified. There must be slight moisture on your finger for contact to be made.

    If you use a Kick in the new version, then that's an extra layer of complexity, because if you get misfires, it could either be down to very dry hands, or a Kick that needs a good clean (we've had that issue here already - solved by a little sanding of the contacts on the kick) - obviously not due to the Apprentice, but it is something that we'll see as more people get using the Kick in their Apprentice without being aware of the need to keep it perfectly clean.

    Hi fermthe,
    Not really, it will make it faster for you to checkout later perhaps, but there's no priority or anything by having it in your basket as your order is not in the system until you've proceeded through and completed checkout.

    Thanks Lisa. Yeah, I predict that as long as I remember to twist the guard over the sensor and put the battery in button side up I won't have much to worry about with the touch sensor's durability. I do intend to use a Kick though, but I'll be sure to keep its contacts polished.

    I want one. Lots. My pantry will just have to stay empty for another month or so. :>

    We couldn't be sure if not locking it when inserting the battery was the cause of any issues at all, but I must say, I always lock mine automatically when I change the battery and I have used my original Wizard daily since I got it, and use one my Wizard's Apprentice at least weekly too and never had an issue with them.
    Hope you get one.

    Is your Wizard your primary power plant, then? You've got lots of excellent toys. Your choice of a primary vape is a profound testament to us who are on our own quests for vaping nirvana.

    Oh, and congratulations! Keith is a lucky man. You're too hot for him, though.

    The Titanium Wizard is my main device at the moment, but I also use an Apprentice - often one of the smaller ones for out and about, and I use one of my Precises often too - really depends what I'm using on top mainly.

    oh, and thanks for the congrats, we both feel extremely lucky to have found each other (it was right here on ECF actually).
