DynaVap "M" "2018 Version" Stainless Steel Pocket-Sized Lighter-Powered Vaporizer
DynaVap "M" Stainless Steel Pocket-Sized Lighter-Powered Vaporizer "2018 Version"
Our New DynaVap ‘M’ is deployed for use straight from the VapLab with the intent of providing the highest quality, durability and experience for an extremely reasonable price. The 'M' is created utilizing 100% Stainless Steel of medical grade to the exact dimensions of the original VapCap. The quality of our newest addition remains consistent with our entire line of products with an additional robust durability. Like all DynaVaps the 'M' arrives equipped with our signature temperature indicating cap providing simplicity and efficiency for all.
Midsection: Stainless Steel
Mouthpiece: Stainless Steel
Total Length: 92 mm
Dynavap devices require no batteries or electronics to work, but rather utilize any heat source, such as a butane torch lighter, to heat a temperature indicating cap on a conduction/convection chamber.
Each model weighs less than half an ounce. Models are 10mm in circumference and 92mm overall length. The exceptions are the VonG models with a bigger 14mm circumference and XLS models with a longer 109mm overall length.
The condenser tube serves as a heat exchanger to condense and cool the vapor as it travels through the device. In addition, the condenser tube provides an easy to clean component for vapor to travel and keep your midsection material clean from residue.
DynaVap offers only the best materials for our products and fortunately customers can compare metals when buying tips, condensers and screens. The titanium components are all Grade 2 titanium and the stainless steel components are medical grade stainless steel. There are a few performance characteristics in each metal within the device as well. When compared with stainless steel, titanium is lighter weight and three to four times stronger offering optimal durability and lifespan. However stainless steel is cost effective and more scratch-resistant.
Our titanium tips offer a faster heat up time and distribute heat more evenly than the stainless steel counterpart. In addition, the titanium tips have three adjustable screen positions and have a titanium screen, while the stainless steel tips only offer one position and have a stainless steel screen. Both the titanium tips and the stainless steel tips are compatible with most DynaVap components, with the exception that stainless steel tips do not function properly with the Omni condenser assembly.
We recommend that you use a butane torch lighter for optimal results. To ensure even heating, apply the heat to the cap, away from the end, and rotate the device steadily until you hear/feel a click. Directly heating the end of the cap will cause it to click prematurely, causing reduced vaporization.
DO NOT apply heat past the click. Overheating will permanently damage the cap.
With a torch lighter and a titanium tip, the typical heat-up phase takes 3-6 seconds and remains at vapor production temperature until the cool down click about 30 seconds later. After the cool down click, it is safe to begin another heating cycle. When using a soft flame lighter, the heat-up phase takes about 15 seconds. The stainless steel tip requires a longer heat-up time than the titanium tip.
Our Degummed Hemp Fiber has multiple uses. It can be used in the tip of the device as an adsorbent for extracts, or a filter under the screen to catch the very fine particles. Just a pinch in the tip will help keep your device clean. It can also be used to clean the condenser. Simply push a ball of it through a warm condenser from the mouthpiece end and the ball of fiber will wipe the tube out nicely.
Cleaning: All non wood components are dishwasher safe. Most components of the device can be disassembled by pulling apart. The OmniVap condenser threads into the mouthpiece. Glass and metal parts may be soaked in hot water or a cleaning solution of your choice. Do NOT clean with alcohol or other flammable liquids. Doing so may damage the condenser quad rings and any wood components. We suggest using DynaWax to maintain the polish on the wood as well as lubricating the o-rings for reassembly. Reassemble components to match the original assembly. When re-inserting, push pieces of the device together, adding lubricant and a slight twist to ease rubber o-rings in place.
There are a couple of ways to remove the scorch marks and soot from the stainless steel cap. Wash the cap with warm water and apply any of the following suggestions: metal polish, steel wool or a baking soda and vinegar mix. Scorch marks are part of the normal use patina, but to prevent soot buildup when using a soft flame lighter, keep the cap deep in the blue part of flame and try to minimize the amount of yellow flame. This will avoid the soot causing yellow part of the flame contacting the cap, as well as provide a more even heat distribution around the cap.
To use your VapCap:
Most Important! Before your first use, please read all of these instructions and then do at least two, preferably more than two, dry runs with nothing in the VapCap! This is very important to become familiar with the operation of the unit and prevent unintentional combustion residues.
The VapCap is unlike any other vaporizer, so give it a few tries empty to get the feel of its unique temperature-indicating click. Heat the VapCap in a quiet area, listen and feel so you know what you are looking for. If you are using a torch lighter, this should not take more than 5 or 6 seconds. Heat the middle of the cap not the end and rotate while heating. If more than 6 seconds go by and you don’t hear the click, stop heating and let it cool down.
If you severely overheat your VapCap it can be permanently damaged. It is very important you hear the cool down click, or allow it to cool to the touch, before heating for the next cycle. Repeat this procedure several times to get the feel of how this little unit operates.
When you are ready for the first use, let it cool down, then remove the cap from the VapCap.
Fill the VapCap chamber with your material of choice. This can be done easily by pushing the VapCap into a container of your material and twisting. Pre-grinding your material is NOT needed like when using a bat or hitter. If you prefer to grind, go coarse. Finely ground material will get through the diffuser disc and into the unit.
Place the cap back on the VapCap.
Heat up the metal cap of your VapCap while rotating it, with the flame or heat source applied to the last third of the metal cap. Try to only apply heat to the side of the cap and NOT the end. This is not like lighting a smoking device.
Continue rotating and heating the cap until you hear and or feel a click - this means the VapCap is ready!
Puff on the mouthpiece. Experiment a little here. If you draw with the air hole completely plugged the flow will seem somewhat restricted. This is normal. Some find they get the best result by taking a long, slow steady draw with the hole completely open, and others will intermittently or lightly cover the air/vapor mix port. The way air flows through the VapCap cools the vapor to provide a smooth experience.
Keep drawing as desired until you hear the click again, this means the VapCap has cooled down.
When the vapor production diminishes, it is easy to reactivate. a. Make sure the VapCap has re-clicked “to cool” before reheating for the next cycle. b. If you are not sure if it has re-clicked, gently blow on the end to cool it. It may take up to 1 minute to reset.
When there is no longer any desirable vapor produced, and the cap has clicked “to cool”, remove the cap. The consumed material can be either blown out the end, or the little tang on the cap is also a wonderful “digger outer.”
Reload for another round of simple and wonderful vapor.
It is recommended that you use a butane torch style lighter with your VapCap.
Wait until you hear or feel the reset click or at least 30 seconds after the VapCap stops producing vapor to reheat.
It is VERY important to wait until you hear the cool down click before applying more heat.
Stop heating your VapCap as soon as you hear the click until you get to know each other better.
You can vary the intensity of the flavor by using the air/vapor adjustment port.
Depending on your personal preference and heat source, as well as how many cycles since the VapCap was loaded, you may want to apply heat for 1-2 seconds after the click. This will provide for a different level of roasted flavor.
DO NOT APPLY HEAT FOR MORE THAN 3 SECONDS PAST THE CLICK! OVERHEATING WILL PERMANENTLY DAMAGE THE VAPCAP!
The end of the VapCap gets very hot during and following use. Do not touch the hot end until it has cooled. Also please do not put the hot end into your mouth.
The VapCap can be safely put back in its Special Case or reloaded after the cool down click is heard.
We have done our best to remove the hassle from using a vaporizer. The VapCap doesn’t have any fancy digital display or lights, but it does make great vapor.
To remove consumed material from the chamber, either blow on the mouthpiece or use the built in extractor or “digger outer” to empty the chamber. The body can be cleaned with hot water. You can also use the included carrying case with almost any cleaning solution filled half full then shake or soak to wash your VapCap with the cap removed.
WARNING: Cleaning with alcohol or other flammable liquids is not recommended. Alcohol will not damage any component of the VapCap, even with prolonged soaking, but we do not recommend using it.
