That does help, very much! I really appreciate it
Newvape flowerpot for desktop and dynavap vapcap for portable. I've not been impressed with most portables. The good ones have issues with reliability, which means not good to me. I would personally avoid the mighty and also grasshopper for this very reason.
There is quite a wait for Alan's iHeat and RBT's spl;nter. I'm waiting for both. Seems like the tubo would fit in the temp controlled mod box category except that it's already put together and doesn't require buying a separate box.
I’m brand new here. Very long time lurker, first time poster. I came across this thread and figured it’s a good time to participate. My personal thought is that 1 and 2 can be the same unit, especially if you’re travelling. I have many of the same needs so I can understand where you’re coming from. I chose to go all butane in my setup. Mainly for the fact that I prefer “on-demand” Vs “session” use, since travelling means you need more efficiency, unless you’re gonna be in botanical friendly areas at all times. So I use less and get just as medicated on that smaller amount. And when I’m done, I’m not cooking anything past it’s usefulness.
I use a Sticky Brick Jr as my desk/portable solution. You can put a tiny dusting or a full bowl, it matters not. Extraction is fast, under 10 seconds from torch click to exhale. There are a bunch of accessories for water, glass use, and when folded up it slips in my jeans pocket no problem. It’s not small like a Pax but it is portable and the flavour and performance is stellar. Plus it’s full convection, which I prefer.
My backups are 2 DynaVaps. I have a small, herb “bug-out” bag that has all my needs inside. It’s a hemp fibre case from Dimebags. It holds my flower, Space Case 2 piece grinder and a Titanium OmniVap as well as a second as a backup which is a sandblasted DynaVap M. I also keep the accessories bags for both my Sticky Brick and DynaVaps (extra screens and o-rings for all my units), and my torch.
The case has a carabiner that I can clip onto my backpack or my belt. I generally keep 2 torches filled up so I can leave the butane can at home for extended trips.
On my last trip to the US I cleaned my OmniVap really well, and flew with it in my carry on luggage. I left all my other gear at home. Not even an ounce of an issue. And since I couldn’t bring my torch on a plane I had to rely on gas station Bics, stove elements and candles. No fuss no muss, it was a dream, and since It’s so efficient I used a lot less bud, so the small amount I was able to get lasted me a lot longer than if I had still been using my Devinci IQ or worse yet, a Flowermwte (my first dry herb vape, don’t judge me lol)
Thank you, all, for your input!
I've never owned a vape that required fame/butane... mostly because I'm clumsy and don't want to burn myself lol
But all of your posts have helped me to see the value in it. I'm gonna start with a vapcap, and see how I do... make sure I don't burn the place down lol
Thank you, again, for all of your helpful input!!!
Glad you’re willing to try it. With the Dynavap you’ll see just how insanely powerful such a small thing can be. It’s like that Noisy Cricket gun on MIB. You’re thinking “what can this possibly do?” Then you hit it and almost get choked out with the amount of vapor. And then you’re thinking you had to have combusted. So you open it to find nice ABV and no combustion.
One thing I would say is, watch some of the videos regarding how to heat the cap for the best efficiency. You really can’t screw it up as long as you mind the heat up and cool down “clicks”, but different areas on the cap produce different temperatures. I have heard of people combusting but generally it’s only if they don’t “respect the click”. You’ll get that term quickly. Cheers!
Oh and don’t forget to check out the Sticky Brick stuff. I watched a bunch of vids before I purchased these, along with reading posts on here. Once I went butane I didn’t go back to batteries. And before then I was super against butane. I was wrong.
The Dynavap stuff is truly “end of days” apocalypse type vaping. You could probably heat it off an engine block if you had to.
1: NewVape FlowerPot
2: Mighty by Storz and Bickel
3: Grasshopper or Oil Pen
I understand the fear of burning yourself. I have a Supreme I've never used because the butane intimidates me. But the vapcap works fine with a small flame from a regular butane cigar lighter. The only time I burned myself with the vapcap was when I picked up the wrong end by mistake. No butane involved in that.
I was also a bit worried about burning myself while using the Sticky Brick Jr but once you find the best flame intake position for yourself (mine is 45 degrees from center, facing away) it’s simple. That said if you touch the intake right after taking a hit, it will still be hot. You’ll do it once, and never do it again. Lol
I can't believe I wasn't thinking of the iheat cartridge for ultra portable. Yeah, that's definitely my third choice.
So, flowerpot desktop
Iheat cartridge for portable #2
Desktop: Evo for taste/herbal connoisseur experience or Herbalizer for speed, accuracy and medicinal bliss. The EVO would be the choice of those who want to enjoy the nuanced aspects of herb like a fine wine and don't mind waiting for the wine to decant. The Herbalizer would be the choice of those who want a shot of top shelf tequila "now" and appreciate preciseness in temp and speed, plus it does bags. Fine wine or shot of Patron Silver....both will get you happy.
Portable: Since portable in this case doesn't mean stealth (stealth is handled in the next category) I would select an Arizer Solo or SoloII. Heavy hitting, versatile, easy to clean, glass path, great taste and great battery life.
Ultra portable/discreet: E-cig Looking Vape Pen for distillate/oil. I prefer flower but if I'm serious about being portable and discreet a vape pen that looks like it can contain nicotine or pure CBD is hard to beat. I prefer the ones that are on-demand so all you gotta do is hit it. No buttons, no technique.....
1. Heavy hitting desktop - sticky brick maxx
2. Heavy hitting portable - sticky brick jr
3. Heavy hitting ultra discreet portable - da vinci iq
Besides da vinci getting too hot for summer, this is imo the perfect trio and only vapes u need
I'd be in the @Winegums camp. I don't own a Mighty, but might fill that slot with DaVinci IQ. Mighty is a darn good vape, but cannot be pocketed or palmed like an IQ. I do favor my Grasshopper for stealth when out. The IQ is more of a session vape than an on demand vape. The Firefly 2 is not discrete, would be nice if they (Somebody, anybody!) took the technology in that vape or the Grasshopper and built a small upright on demand palming vape with replaceable batteries and a large chamber. Perhaps some suggestions will come from this. Cheers! YaMon
