    We don't qualify for those, because we have week-long hours. Want proof? Think of when you're waiting for vapemail. :p

    What process are we supposed to go through if we have one of the units with a chrome top cap instead of stainless ?

    It doesn't seem absolutly clear to me right now. But I think they want you to send a picture of your tube that shows a color difference between the stainless and the chrome plate. Not neccesarily an easy feat for those of us who dont have good photographic equipment. I went the caveman approach and just took a grinder to it untill the base metal was exposed and sent a not so great photo of that, but it was obvious. Now Sunny has asked that we not do what I did.
    This might be clusterfu(k round 2.

    So, I've finally gotten around to catching up on this thread and watching Faze's review. There are a few things I am now wondering about:

    1) My fire button seems to be plastic. I had noticed it was not the same SS material, it is dull and feels like plastic. it wasn't until I watched Faze's review that I realized this should not be. Along these lines, my cap does seem to be SS, it is the same color as the tube, and neither will hold a magnet. the bottom cap does not seem to be SS. it will hold a magnet. The button bothers me more because it looks so cheap. I don't want to give up my vtube to send it back for a replacement, so I guess I'll have to live with it. disappointing.

    2) If there is supposed to be a function, according to Faze, where you press the on/off button seven times to get how much battery life you have left...that doesn't happen with mine. On the other hand, there is nothing on the website or in the instruction manual, about this, so maybe that function is not there??

    3) My battery, the 18350, definitely run out of steam by about four hours. Apollo is sending me a new one.

    I got the cone extender suggested and that definitely helped with the airy vape. Thank you Faze!

    Anyone else noticed this button thing?

    The buttons are in fact plastic and I would have been totally shocked if they were SS, so that part I would consiter normal for the device and price range. The ProVari has a plastic button too.

    You should get the battery reading on the display with seven rapid presses of the red power button. You should set your device to like 4.5v or something other than the lower voltages so you do not get confused with your voltage setting, and the voltage of the battery.

    So far I am very impressed with this device and cant thank Apollo enough.

    Oh! one more thing! I found a good way to clean around the threads. pull a small strip of cotton from a cotton ball and wrap it around a toothpick. just the right size to get in there and clean up any spilled juice.

    Your welcome :p

    Oh, thank you bmays. your right, I do have the function to check the battery life, but it reads 3.5. what does that mean. it's set at 5volts right now.

    good to know I don't have a defective button!

    Yes, damselle, the fire button is plastic—as are the + and - buttons.

    What you have for your $60 is a stainless steel Vtube, one out of a relatively tiny production run. To put that another way, you have a collector's item.

    My glass is half full.
