    Heyas,

    I tried nitrous at a festival this past summer, and loved it. I have recently decided to get a cracker off the net so I could do it at home. The website I found sells brass ones that fit "10cm3 cartridges". Is this just the size of any normal whip cream charger?
    are crackers prone to breaking and should I buy more than one?
    Are there any brands of chargers that I should avoid or any I should look for in particular to buy?
    When I did the nitrous, I held it in for as long as I could before exhaling, is this the way that most of you do it?

    thanx for yer help

    alright well if its a cracker and most chargers i mean i have only seen one size in my life


    ts up to u if u want more then one what happens some times in the treads in it wear down after a much of uses and it won't close (mainly i think this happens when ur high friends aren't watching what they are doing and don't line up the threads right and they grind them away as they twist)

    the best chargers to my knowledge are ISI supposed to be one of the cleanest

    WHen i'm taking it i like just like to take a huge breath and keep blowing it back into the balloon and take another breathe

    I've never actually bought a cracker, just used friends. That being said, most of these were passed down to them. That would mean to me that they're fairly sturdy. Being nothing more than metal and a seal, there's not much to hurt. I'd just get whatever you like the look of best. As far as size goes, I've also only seen one size. Hope it helps.


    Peace,

    Can you inhale any of the whip cream chargers? Or are some that have harmful impurities? Also, is it absolutely necesseray to fill the balloon from a Dispenser, or are there other easier ways? Thanks.

    Yeah go straight from the can but make sure all the cream is settled 2 the bottom and the can isnt cold because that could end up hurting...

    I'm not talking about Whip Cream cans -- I'm talking about N2O chargers.

    The box claims it is 100% pure N2O. And can I fill the balloon straight from the charger?

    I really dont think that is safe man. I mean maybe you could somehow puncture a hole in the charger, but how would you get the balloon on time. Those thing get very cold too. Even if you do use a charger, those will get too cold sometimes, even to the point where it burns you. If you cant afford a cracker then you dont need to be doing whippits. It sounds very impractical to use n2o without one. It might be possible but not safe. Just spend a bit on a cracker or dispenser, you will be glad you did. Dont skimp on the money because you will probably end up hurting yourself trying to find a way to use n2o w/o a cracker.

    Well for 1, You will definatly need a cracker for the charges. Also all the whipped cream chargers used for whipped cream machines are "food grade" which have some impurities (some brands more than others, try google search or search the forum) the impurities arent really anything to worry about if your just trying the stuff but if u plan on doing it alot and make it a habit almost always "hospital grade" nitrous should be aquired which isnt always easy. The impurities in food grade arent bad and ther only even there because its made for your digestive system which doesnt have to be as clean as if its going in your lungs, but they are still relatively clean, MUCH MUCH better than auto grade nitrous, dont bother with that shit.

    No, it is absolutely unsafe to inhale directly off crackers. You will freeze your mouth and lips.

    It is imperative that you dispense the air into a balloon, bag, whatever, just something that is an inbetween between mouth, lips, tongue, and cracker and frigid NOS.
