3 1/2 hr? 40 min max ,also make sure you cap the voltage at 12v (no pulse modulation rev control)otherwise you get one time a lot of smoke and HE will not give you the money back!

I went to the site, it DOES say 3-1/2 hours on 1/2 ounce of smoke fluid.

But I call "BS" on those numbers, especially running at 2 amps.

Please get one and report back...

I agree that 3.5 hours on 0.5 oz has got to be total BS. 2 amps is still way too much for me.

That's the current they have always drawn, the original one and the new small one.

lotsasteam has hooked one up, I believe he has direct experience..

Yeeph,smoked like (where the devil lives)(couse **** won't post!)for awhile (ca 1 year) had the unit in parallel hooked up with a second revolution to synchronize the smoke output according with the speed! The reason why it quit on me (my theory) somehow the pulse width modulation may have overheated the unit while it was low on smoke fluid (collapsed sidewalls and then the burnt out resistors indicated this)!

in theory, on this type of heater, pwm should be no different than dc, it's the wattage consumed that will be converted into heat.

i like the bulletproof tanks of the mth units..

but let's see how this new unit performs... just have a hard time believing that level of output will work for 3.5 hours and 1/2 ounce.

I have run other smoke units with less smoke output, and they run dry pretty quick.
