EHLE Bongs Adaptors

The EHLE bong is a great, compact water pipe that’s available in several different styles. But why would you want to use an adapter?

Bongs have been around for centuries — they’re as old, it seems, as smoking itself. And while many of them are made out of clay or other materials, today’s modern designs and shapes allow even those with no experience at all to produce some pretty awesome-looking smoke clouds.

There are so many different types on the market, too, including ones shaped like animals (like the porcupine), fruits (such as pineapple) and even comic book superheroes. Many of these can be quite expensive, however, which makes your own custom design a much better option if you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on something new.

The best part about making one yourself is that you get complete control over every aspect of how it looks and feels once it’s done. Which brings us to what we’ll be talking about here: adapting existing bongs into more unique models.

We aren’t going to talk about taking two identical systems and swapping out their parts just because someone thinks yours isn’t cool enough. This article will show you exactly where to go when trying to make your own customized version of an already popular piece of glassware.

Before diving right in, though, let’s take a quick look at some of the most common kinds of bongs out there.

Before explaining how to adapt any type of system, it helps to know its basic purpose. A classic hand-held bong is basically a tube with a bowl attached near the bottom. You hold this between your mouth and lips and suck air through it.

When you exhale, the air passes through the vapor path and hits the water inside, creating steam. The resulting mist then goes up through the stem hole at the top, and you inhale it back down again. While this kind of setup works fine for people who prefer this method to others, it has plenty of downsides, such as limited capacity, short life span due to buildup of residue and potential health risks.

So why not try building your own bong instead? One way is by using a standard hose connected to a larger tank filled with water. As long as you keep the pressure low, you should be able to draw in huge quantities of fresh oxygen without doing damage to your lungs.

Some smokers also like to build simple standup bongs, but this requires a lot more skill than simply screwing together a few pieces of equipment. Instead, you’ll probably end up buying a prebuilt unit or paying a professional to do it for you. If none of those appeal, consider looking into converting your current EHLE bong, which we’ll discuss shortly.

Smoking From The EHLE

When you first open up your EHLE bong kit, you may notice that it comes packaged with a small plastic device called an “adapter.” What does it do? Well, it lets you connect whatever style of pipe you’ve chosen to the starter pack.

Not only can this help you decide which features you’d like to include in your finished product, but it can also serve another very important function: It allows you to change the length of the entire setup. For example, if you buy one of the smaller sizes (which still work well), you might find that after awhile, it doesn’t fit comfortably between your couch cushions anymore!

By adding a longer section to the system, you can rest it upright on a table without having to worry about it toppling over. In fact, the adapters come in four different lengths, ranging from 10 inches (25 cm) to 18 inches (45 cm).

Once you’ve got everything else assembled, it’s time to start experimenting with various attachments until you arrive at something you really love. Let’s say you want to add a second chamber to increase the amount of hitable space within the overall size of the system.

To achieve this goal, you could either opt for a slightly taller pipe, or cut off a portion of the original model’s wide base. Whichever route you choose, the next step is to attach your desired attachment — maybe it’s a shorter stem or a wider bowl.

Then, simply unscrew the cap on the side where you removed the material. Once that’s taken care of, plug in the power cord, and voila! Now you can enjoy your creation in full effect.

Now that you understand the basics behind how to adjust and customize your bong, it’s time to move onto the adaptation process. Read on to learn how to turn an EHLE bong into a totally unique machine.

Why Use an Adapter With Your EHLE Water Pipe System?

It takes a little bit of practice to get used to handling a large number of accessories, especially if you haven’t built anything before. Fortunately, the EHLE bong offers users a convenient way to swap out components.

Because each individual component comes with multiple options, you can change things up whenever you want to create a completely new set-up. Here’s how to install an adapter. First, unpack the included instructions, and locate the diagram showing where the socket is located.

Next, remove the cover plate and insert the adapter shaft. Attach the threaded post of the adapter to the center bolt underneath.

Finally, slip the adapter body over the threads and tighten it against the base. That’s it! Just remember to always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines regarding safety precautions and proper maintenance.

Adaptation kits are usually sold separately, and unlike other products, they often feature interchangeable heads that give you additional freedom of choice when configuring your final product.

These can range greatly depending on whether you’re interested in producing a traditional hookah, an e-cig, or even a cigarette lighter. They typically consist of a main head with a mouthpiece, plus extra sections that contain bowls, stems and sometimes battery packs.

Most of these units run anywhere from $50 to $150, which puts them far below the cost of purchasing similar devices off the shelf.

For even greater versatility, you can purchase whole conversion kits designed specifically for certain brands of bongs. Take, for instance, the Zebulon Vaporizer Kit. All you have to do is download the free app to your smartphone, select the model you want to convert, and send in the necessary information.

In return, you receive a detailed PDF detailing the steps required to finish the job. Depending on the complexity involved, it can take anywhere from 24 hours to three weeks to receive your newly modified bong. Once it arrives, you can begin enjoying your brand-new rig immediately.

So now you know how to adapt your EHLE bong into a totally unique piece of art, but what happens when you get bored of the hardware you picked out? Luckily, these units are relatively easy to disassemble and clean. Simply soak them overnight in hot water and dish soap. Rinse thoroughly, dry and store carefully.
