    I do not have a fury2... I cannot comment.
    It does well with shorter rips as well, but I do prefer to try to get as much out of my material as possible once the 120s starts. Your material is cooking the whole time so there is no point in trying to take it slow.

    At my setting, I typically get great vapor out of the first 3 hits. 4th draw vapor is substantially faded if not depleted and that is the end of my cycle. I always give it a second 120s press BUT I usually cancel the burn and turn off after the 1st or second draw. At that point, I can get some last sips but with the very short mouthpiece/chamber, an experienced palate can also quickly taste the grounds go to coffee dark and will know when to back off.

    Remove mouthpiece, dump, reload, (recover) repeat.


    @PV~ there is no placebo! this RIPS! I LOVE devices that allow me to get such complete extraction so fast! It really shines at the end of the workday!

    How does it hit compared to the Hammer in your sig? How's the bowl size compared to the Lotus?

    Fair enough. What do you think about the flavor from it in general?

    LOL the Hammer is dogshit IMO. I moved on from it years ago and need to remove that from the signature entirely.

    This is far more refined than the Hammer, Ambit allows me to be exponentially more precise with my extraction than with Hammer, which I had accidental combustion often when going for full extraction.

    Flavor is great for me, but I think that is really going to be subject to your material. I get great flavor on draws 1-2,3, then it really just fades on 4 as I reach full extraction. My next draw (new cycle) usually tastes like browning ABV and I back off and power down.

    For those looking to get ripped, you will all REALLY appreciate there is no-shutoff when you draw. You can pull thick vapor as long as your lungs can handle. For those used to other vapes, you might find yourself expecting and waiting for the haptic feedback and cutoff, but it never comes! You can pull till ya get a lung FULL.

    I do put more into this than I do my Lotus, it holds a nice load. I've found a loose but full pack works best. half loads do not get to as full an extraction, overpacking can cause some uneven vaping/tunneling with regards to the vapor path through the bowl. I load it similarly in size and density to my ghost carts or minivap carts.

    @FlyingLow , did you find the herb chamber to be fairly large?

    For microdosers like myself, a herb capsule makes for convenience,
    And limits the total volume down.

    I use Fury capsules, & it works well in the Ambit.

    Vivant would do well to offer flavor capsules with their new Ambit? :tup:

    You don’t have to pack full bowls. You can get away with packing small bowls and getting 2-3 rips out of it

    Ambit works best with a full bowl. Just like many other vapes, you might be able to cut the load size down by using a concentrate pad of some kind to fill the space void or mesh capsules. We haven't tested that though and don't know if it will mess with the air turbulence. The Ambit is a heavy hitter in a very compact form factor.

    Vivant has asked us to hold off on anymore photos until it is closer to being released in case they make any changes to packaging etc. They are getting lots of great feedback and will want to incorporate as much of it as possible. We might be able to post more photos this weekend.:peace:

    Besides making the chamber size more microdosing friendly, the “flavor” capsules
    Allow one to carry several flavors EDC.

    Plus+, Lock & Load. On the go. YMMV :tup:

    This is a temporary video I don't even know if I am allowed to share it but.. I hope it's cool @Vivant if not it'll be removed even quicker. Since the cat is out of the bag on the unit someone on vaporents discord requested a bit of footage, I'm not going to talk a lot about the unit since mine was a sample and I'm hoping some things were changed and it sounds like it based on the original post in this thread.

    I enjoy mine very much. Never packed full bowls. I did have a mesh screen at the bottom that could come out.

    Yeah mine was ready for giant clouds as soon as it was up to temp..maybe a little on the hot side but man it produces clouds son..i tried it on 410 i think and it was like 450 on other vapes..and the 120 second was too short.

    How’s the battery life?

    Battery life great. 8-10 sessions at 2 minutes a pop. Never had an issue.

    Vape mouth piece is small. No q tip for cleaning. Soak in iso but I never did more than 5 minutes for the soak

    I will concede and say full pack is better. But I microdose usually. So I get 3 nice hits at 170C and then 1-2 wispy hits and then done.

    Cleaning is a breeze.

    Looks like the screen is the same as the Alternate? That’s difficult to read in the sun, but hopefully audible beeps are still there? Hepatic feedback?

    Screen is extremely difficult to read in the sun. Yes there is haptic feedback.

    Great little vape. Truly a pocket vape.

    That is quite low. What temps are you at? I’ve always gotten 8-10.

    Yeah i had similar taste but not as strong as fury. i enjoy this more than my fury 1 or 2 because it gets hotter much faster but i might have recieved a hot one..lol..i keep temps around 360 because 400 is way too hot on my device..and im a high temp vaper so i might have recieved a hot one..my bowl glows red when voming up to temp..it scared me at first but no combustion or anything like that.

    I am yet to run it through a bong or anything like that. I think I do wanna try that. Just don’t wanna buy one. Haven’t used one since 2013.
