UPDATE: Unfortunately Haze is no longer in business so I cannot recommend any of their products due to lack of support, parts, and warranty. Feel free to check out my best portable and best desktop articles to see what I am currently recommending
Hey guys and gals I recently finished a Q and A with Jason from Vaporizer USA. He has a direct line with Haze Technologies and answered 7 different questions for me that I was curious about. I thought you guys would want to see some of the answers.
If you guys have any more questions about the Haze, feel free to leave them below and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks for checking out my site and make sure to subscribe to my mailing list for more reviews, interviews and giveaways.
Haze Vaporizer Q & A
Q. What is the best way to clean the small path from the bowls to the stem? I think I’m getting it pretty good but I just wanted to know what your recommended cleaning procedure was.
A. The best way to clean the path is with alcohol soaked Q-tip. Simply remove the mouthpiece and insert the alcohol soaked Q-tip into the air path. It will clean all residue within seconds.
Q. What are the exact Haze temperatures for each level? I’ve found a couple posts showing 250, 350, 375, 410.
A. We are using a controlled system for temperatures. The approximate temperatures range 250-275 , 350 – 370, 375- 410, 410-470F. The temperature is regulated automatically depending on the consistency of your material. You can use the settings you mentioned safely.
When there is wax content with cans, the system uses a higher value for heating. With conduction screen at low temperature, you will experience the lower end of the range. As an average, you can list them as 250, 350, 375, 410 but the heat exchange system also regulates these temperatures.
Q. The Haze stem sticks inside the unit after a couple uses. What do you do to stop this from happening?
A. This issue was already identified and we will have a fix released for this in few weeks. Meantime, the best way to avoid this is:
- Either do a quick Q tip clean up after every second or third session
- Or, you can wait until the unit heats up to release the mouthpiece.
UPDATE: Haze Technologies have addressed the sticky mouthpiece issue and this was the response I got below.
I wanted to make sure I had the correct information from Haze Technologies before I responded to you with any updates. After speaking with the manufacturer, they explained that mouthpiece and the unit will be the same as the mouthpiece and the unit you currently have, so it’s the same stainless steel and glass mouthpieces.
The minor difference with the new models is that the bottom of the air path where the mouthpiece is stored will be designed in a particular way for the mouthpiece to sit on the base without any friction that causes the mouthpiece to “stick” in the unit. For a mass production with this new modification, the manufacture estimates that the units will be ready early January.
Q. What is the word on a water pipe adapter for the Haze? eta?
A. The WPA is currently being designed. We are hoping that we will have this accessory by December. In the meantime, here is a 3rd party website who already built a wood piece for this. We may start carrying this wooden parts as well. – Ed’s Tote n Tokes
Q. ETA on the new cans and what are the differences? Does it just fit in both ways now?
A. The new Haze all-purpose cans are being designed at the moment. They will be much for versatile and cater towards not only on wax but also for the dry herb as well. Current cans also work with dry herb and wax very well but the new design will make it a better experience.
Q. How does the auto-shutoff work? Motion? Air Flow?
A. If you put the unit down without activity (no draws) , the unit will shut itself off.
Q. Do you have any information on the heating element? Stainless Steel?
A. The Haze heating element is stainless steel. All metal parts inside and accessories are surgical grade stainless steel (the most expensive and high end steel version). Including the cans, screens, mouthpiece, bowls etc.
Haze General Tips and Tricks for Dry Herbs
Convection screen will give you a taste, will medicate you 100% without much physical or visible vapor output at setting 3. This setting may be a bit low for some people, at setting 4 the haze will give you more visible vapor.
On the other hand, if you use the conduction screens (the open side ones) at setting 3, you will see that it is the optimum temperature setting for the dry herb for most people. The conduction screen with setting 4 will produce much thicker vapor, but can be a bit on the hot side for some people.
A lot of people use the cans to vape dry herb too. Remove the silicone lid from the can, remove the wicks inside. Place your herb inside the can. Place the silicone lid back on the can and drop the can inside the chambers. Try at setting 3 and 4. I am sure that you will enjoy it.
Most people use these cans to pre-pack the dry herb and take several cans out to concerts parks etc and they love the performance. So they don’t have to deal with prep, dump, grind when they are out.
