    **QUICK START**

    1) Charge your Ascent for 4 hours for full battery
    2) Power the device by the button next to the mouthpiece
    3) Load your vape at the bottom by swiveling the chamber
    4) use the temp + and - to accurately set your temp
    5) When the temp is ascending, the thermometer will be on screen, when you've reached the temp, the display will switch to a heat bowl with vapor rising out of it
    6) Take your draw from the "Buddy Rim" or use the glass mouthpiece
    **SETTINGS BUTTON**

    1) Push 1 time to turn heat chamber on + or off -
    2) Push 2 times to adjust auto-sleep timer to the desired time
    3) Push 3 times to set personal vape cycles. Push again to activate first temp; repeat for 3 cycles. To end personal cycles, bush the button once and push the - button.
    4) Push 4 times nad hold the settings button for 5 seconds to toggle between Farenheit and Celcius

    **CLEANING**

    1) Remove glass mouthpiece and screen-stem and soak with iso alcohol
    2) Clean the glass lined ceramic chamber w/ an Iso-Soaked q-tip
    3) Clean your oil jars frequently

    **BUILD**

    Outside is an aluminum plating, a genuine leather pressed croc skin, and a medical grade silicone. The chamber is glass lined ceramic which holds and distributes the heat consistently. Obviously, it's an all glass air-path... making all electronic components housed separately.

    **FACTS**

    - Herbs & Oils
    - temp range between 0-430 F
    - MINE HEATED UP FROM 0 - 375 in EXACTLY 35 SECONDS!
    - 2 year limited warranty and 3 months battery warranty
    - Battery takes 5 hours to completely charge; lasts 3 hours :rockon:
    - IT CAN BE USED WHILE ITS CHARGING!
    - Fits in Pocket similar to cell phone
    - Auto Shut-off motion sensor

    Without blabbing any more... HERE SHE IS!​

    JUST TO LET EVERYONE KNOW, I've been talking to a bunch of people at DaVinci, and am close to doing some type of promo code such as "Herbal" that could add a free waterpipe attachment for FC members. Before anyone jumps the gun on it... nothing is finalized; but something I'll keep you all informed on!

    The holes in the bottom of the chamber look pretty big. Any concern of bud falling through?

    I could only add 20 pics at a time, so here's the packaging! BTW I messaged Nigel and told him I wanted to see what the response was from people thinking I was serious; people are so bitchy on here constantly.... cracks me up. It was indeed sarcasm lol...

    Yeah, the rep had slightly mentioned that before ("For example, you set it to stay at 360 for 3 mins, go up to 375º for 2 mins and then to 380º for 2 mins"), but now we can clearly see it in the photo (last one) for the first time. More detail.

    So, it *looks* like (guessing from the photo) that it is a three step program, and it sound like there is one one. But all in all, looks awesome!

    To be honest, I'm not exactly sure... the hole's are not really super big... they look like it in the pics, because it's so zoomed in. I'm guessing to put in the chamber? Your guess is as good as mine.

    *** Another thing I forgot to mention. When you pull the glass mouthpiece completely out... you'll see that it fits directly over your glass screen-stem that comes up from the bottom... So indeed, it is a 100% glass air path from your trench.

    Hmmmmmmm what happened to the extra glass screen and mouthpiece that has been talked about? Love the two metal tools. I like the rubbers I invented hehe.

    I was LMAO at the people that got trolled. :rofl:

    Still great pictures!!


    I've been wondered that myself for months. They can't really go down the glass stem that has the glass screen, so top or bottom of bowl?? HR has them in hand, so you can tell us if they fit...

    Yeah, I was wondering about the loop on those. Looks like they grab on to the power button, so it must be kinda tall (offset).

    There is one already inside the Ascent and the others actually come inside of each other in the packaging. You can slightly see them in this picture.

    If you could pull that off I am so sold! Do you mean like a Pinnacle Hydro Tube or is Da Vinci developing something on their own?

    The screens fit perfectly in the bottom of the ceramic trench; just extra precaution... although even if you skipped out... it looks like any extra bud (if any) would fall through the grill at the bottom... so I might just leave mine 100% glass for the time being until need be.

    That little cap is really cool. It does fit a little funky on the Power-Button... but if that's one of the only complaints I've got thus far... I think that is a good sign.

    Heh... seems I've been doing that a bit today.

    I'm like a kid at Christmas, and I don't even have a toy under my tree. ;)

    So much for getting any work done today....


    EDIT: Damn. I really like the grill the more I look at it. Looks like an auto from the 50's, with the two side holes almost like headlights.

    Thank you thank you thank you... Those,photos are top notch!

    Excellent details. Now I'm drooling!

    The anticipation. Is better than any Christmas I remember. :)

    The only logical place I see for the screens is for the bottom of the chamber. The davinci has similar screen on the bottom of the chamber too.

    Yeah, they are quite nice. The Macro shots are great. And good lighting.

    I looked up the EXIF data on the images, and if anyone is wondering it is a Canon PowerShot ELPH 300HS.



    Nice clean shot of the glassware.





    Possibly BOTH top and bottom? If you are using a grind that fine, not only can it fall out the bottom, but you can inhale it up the straw, as, I believe, the holes are the same diameter on the bottom of the bowl and on the glass screen.

    It comes with two identical glass air paths. I sure am glad you guys are reviewing it...great pics! That takes a load off of me since I suck at it.

    Mine charged up pretty quickly, so I ran down to the lhs to show it off before dirtying it up. Loaded and used it for the drive home. It heats up really fast, but I think it will probably benefit from a little longer heat up time like most other units. The taste was impressive even though it still had a little of that new vape taste to it. I started off at 190C and was getting good effects. I couldn't see much vapor as I was driving in the wind, so I kept turning it up until I got to 220, which is as high as I ever go on the E. At one point I cracked it open while it was on and could see a little vapor like in the older video they did.

    By the time the drive was over the load was spent and I was feeling right. The finished load was very evenly baked and looked spent. Cleaning was as easy as blowing in the bowl and the bottom of the lid. I took the air path out and all it took was a quick blow to feel like this unit would be ready for clean travelling. I think this is going to be an easy one to keep clean. At 220 the bottom was getting a little warm, but not hot. At 190 it was barely warm. I'm off to try it in a still environment to check out the cloud production.

    Loaded the first bowl with a little bit of kif to top it off. Needless to say, I got a little excited and ended up with a mouthful of kif lol. If you take a heavy draw, you'll more than likely get a piece of herb in your mouth... wonder if the screen could be placed elsewhere?

    I've used the Pax, Pinnacle, Whisper, Hammer, Palm 2.0, VaporBLUNT 2.0, etc... All I can say after finishing this bowl is that I've never quite experienced something like this in a portable. The all glass air-path is really a weird feeling; but welcomed!
