Too many - but not nearly enough
£25.00 was an OK price for something not destined for a hard life - but for the quality, I think £35.00 is getting towards not worth the money

Anyone know what sort of heater is used in this vapouriser. I have made one but its a bit slow. About 8 minutes to boil the crystals.

6 to 8 Langstroth jumbos, a few Langstroth and National nucs.
I use a diesel glowplug - have posted details before.
About 20 seconds to bring to the boil.

The German one I bought from eBay uses the same, and does the same.
Also looks sturdier than the Thorne's item, the tubing looks to be hollow, I'm assuming the wire runs inside?

The good point is, if it stops working, buy a new glowplug not a new sublimator. The woodsman's axe comes to mind.

Simples. :D

Can you cool down Thorne's Vapmite in bucket with cool water between treatments like u can with Varrox? Or will it get damaged?
