I received my Vapr. Amazing. No seriously.
The unit is very pretty,
simple and extremely comfortable. No waist bands or anything, it is small. All you do is strap it on
your arm. Every single little detail, and I mean EVERY was thout out till it was perfect. Once you
get the unit though, you should charge it before using, as you might think that the unit is broken
or produces less smoke than expceted. Fully charge! Will Tsai gose over everything in the Dvd, and
gives you several Ideas and hookups for stage, TV and street. Also, I did not think that the
wireless remote would be as awsome as it is, in fact I did not really thing I will use it much, well
I ONLY use the remote. Place it in your pocket, hide it under your deck if its a card trick, use it
as a toe switch (DO NOT PLACE IN THE SHOE!!!), if you want to use a toe switch then place the remote
near the top of your sock in your INNER leg, so once it is inside the sock, you touch your feet
together and thats it! Beatufiul elgeant box. You can buy replacement parts in case anything
happens, and damn. 60 extra cartidges? (inside the box). That is just dope, I was wandering about
smoke devices for a loong time, and this is the first one for me and it is just amazing. Really
pleased, really quality product, magical, simple amazing.

I've used Pure Smoke V.2 & v.3 before. And as much as I loved having smoke in my effects, it was not
practical for a professional strolling magician. Also... I just don't really like wearing bras.
I got Vapr the day it came out. It is amazing, I've just used it this past weekend again for a 5
hour event... yes, 5 hours. It was on me, I barely felt it, it worked great. It was easy to hide or
to adjust if I needed...
Oh.. and with the remote option... do I really need to go on?
It's awesome. Highly recommended.
** The only thing I should say is that they claim
that the smoke is twice as thick... this isn't true. It is the same as Pure Smoke. Def. not more
smoke. (unless you hold it for a continuous release)

I was so excited to get this and when I opened the box... ANGELS SANG! The box is beautifully made
and inside you will find the following:
A small instructional and advertising manual
The Vapr Unit
The Remote control
Plug and Charge cables
40 REFILL CARTRIDGES
That may not seem like a lot but it is incredible. The DVD goes
in depth on every piece of the Vapr unit (charging, LEDs, heater coil, power switches, etc.) and
even gives some cool applications. The unit itself is small and very light. The remote is also
around the size of a silver dollar. Charging the device is simple and quick. When I was playing
around with it, I activated the unit about 500 (over exaggeration) times and every single time I got
the same about of smoke. The noise is the same as other smoke devices but will not be a problem when
in the real world. Overall, I think that this is worth getting because if you want to enhance your
magic, this is the product to buy. I LOVE IT!

Where as the main unit is pretty loud, it generally is not a problem in most social environments. I
have seen it performed live from about twelve feet away in a fairly quiet bar and did not notice
anything. I know own Vapr and I am most pleased with it. Everything has been beautifully designed
and works amazingly.
The best part is not only the remote feature, but the cartridges can
be easily refilled using simple Glycerin found in the first aid section in most Pharmacies. I have
not had a problem yet.
I would love it if they could come up with a way to color the
smoke, but this is the highest quality item I have ever bought from a magic shop.

I love this so much!!!
Finally smoke production with an easy set up. The arm and forearm
bands really solve a lot of problems and its neat and self-contained. I have owned pretty much all
the other major smoke products over the years and I rarely used them because of the complicated set
up. The effect vs. hassle ratio wasn't worth it for me even if I've been in love with the idea of
adding smoke to most suspense-based tricks. This is something that you use only once in a
performance, maybe twice. With this ease of use and set-up I just put it on even for casual
performances even in the "just-in case" situations because it is so easy to set-up.
noise is not an issue at all for even quiet performances. I've performed this in different
environments already and even in a quiet kitchen with only 3 spectators and no music the noise under
your clothing is imperceptible. I love the remote. I haven't used it yet, but it's perfectly

I like Vapr a lot, easy to use, nice design. The remote is the best part and the smoke is beautiful.
That you can charge via USB plug makes everything so much easier.
Im planning on buying
one more that I can have on my other arm, your imagination is the limit.
combined with some good routines its just wonderful!

This is a well thought out gimmick, and fun to use. It is not cheap, and there in lies the basis for
my complaint and only a 3 star rating. This kit would have been perfect if it had included an
instruction booklet, and instructions on what to do if you have problems with it!! Instead, it has a
DVD, and a small pamphlet that is more advertisement than anything else. On the DVD we have to
listen to Will Tsai explain things with an accent that is not all that easy to understand, and it
moves along pretty quickly. I was truly hoping that the DVD would at least include a manual I could
print, but no, nothing.I am sure a lot of time and expense went into designing Vapr: why would they
omit such a basic, but IMPORTANT part?
