    Thumbs down Oxalic vaporizer from Ukraine via ebay

    This so called vaporizer, sold on ebay, does not heat over 200F. In personal ebay communication, Seller says to raise the voltage to get the temperature where it needs to be and to use 'pure' oxalic acid which supposedly sublimates at lower temperatures. I asked him to change his description, he said he would. In the process, time expired for a dispute (my bad). I'm stuck with it, but you don't have to be, learn from my mistake.

    Seller notes: "It's NOS goods produced in 1999 year . All this time he was kept in a warehouse and never used.Product tested. Fully working."

    Fully working, it says. Seems legit.

    Try it. What could happen?

    I have tried 4 of the same vaporizers and all work great. I used them on 12v marine batteries and took 1.5 mins to vaporize. You must have got a broken unit. I however did not buy from that seller but from other source.

    My understanding is OA will not sublimate at a temp that low. I built one but, admitedly, did not test it in Ukraine. For what its worth, my cost and time to build the thing was only marginally less than buying a ready to use unit from a proven supplier.
