Hi!

A couple of quick ones:

Heng Long smoker units - what is their operating voltage, and how long can they run between refills?

What do you fill them with?

Are there any other smoker units I should consider instead?

Thanks!

Heng long smoke units draw power straight from the battery so will work happily on 7.2 Nimh & 7.4 Lipo volts. I havent tried running on less but have had one running on a 9v battery fine. Length of run depends on the oil reservoir but you could get a good 30-60 mins out of a single fill. Hard to say for sure as I’ve not run one flat out until empty. 

Best oil I’ve used in them is paraffin based baby oil. It gives out a thicker, whiter smoke than the standard HL stuff, is easy to buy and smells lovely 😉

Theres an easy mod to ditch the HL noisy pump with a 12v fan. Here’s a clip I did of my one.

Thanks for the info.

My Heng Long smoker had just arrived from China. Now to wire it up and find some suitable oil. It didn't come with any filling instructions though. I guess you just squirt the oil through one of the smoke vents? Any advice on quantity?

IIRC (and don't quote me on this as it was some time ago) but my Heng Long tank came with a small bottle of oil for the smoker that was labelled "Corn Oil"...

Can anyone confirm that?
