    Right now they will charge inside the unit, that's not saying that we can't easily build an external charger. With a 4 hour battery life, do you think it's really necessary? Any feedback is appreciated.

    Yes, the user glass is replaceable. Actually the whole unit comes apart for ease of cleaning.

    My apologies for the answer you received from our customer service department. She's pretty much focused on DaVinci right now and doesn't have in depth knowledge on specs of the new unit.

    No need to apologies man, its all good. I wanna be the first person to BUY one! I've got tiered with my solo and i think i found my next love!
    Edit: i would like the external charger, if it could possibly hook up to this i would love it even more,
    It's a portable solar charger, pretty basic, has a 12v output, and a usb output. I've always wanted a vape that i could charge while in the wilderness.

    Nope. Not on GC as a forum member. Have only purchased items off their online store.

    Edit: will be interested in this unit as I'm always looking for the next new portable that appears stealthier then the last. As I stated before it reminds me of my cell phone and probably easy to palm like the MFLB for inconspicuous use...

    Oh. Ha! I just showed the pic to my employee and first thing he said was "looks like a pager or a cell phone" haha. Common thoughts I guess!

    Thanks for the details. You realize that you will be pestered to death for a few days, of course.

    E.g. what are specs for the batteries? I think if the batteries are easily swapped, then an external charger is a must. No matter what the run time, no one wants their device out of service while it charges. Even a pass through adapter wouldn't satisfy me, which reminds me, will there be such a thing? I know it's not likely with a pocket portable, but someone else would ask if I didn't.

    What is the temperature range? You said a faster warmup time, but can you give us some specifics?

    I like the glass lined bowl idea, but how fragile is it? How big is it, i.e. how much does it hold? Is there any screen in the vapor path, and if so what is it made from? If not how do you control particulate?

    What's the price?

    :rofl::rofl::rofl:Ok mister that is the funniest post in my head. I think you just about covered it with the moveable sticking mouth piece that I said. Now we don't have to see a hundred posts.

    I did assume you can use it while charging just like the DV so your pass through with extra of charging should be a given unless I am wrong. DV tell us.

    I do agree if you can remove the batteries why not have the option to externally charge. A non-proprietary plug would be nice like a usb so you don't have to have a trillion plugs. Also a longer plug the DV's is short.

    Now I think this might be everything :D

    Doesn't the Da Vinci work as 100% Convection? Is this a typo or is the Ascent 100% Conduction, or maybe somewhere inbetween?

    I thought the DV was a combo but that is what I was told by vapeworld. With all the vapes I have I would guess 60/40 with the 60 being conduction but I don't really know. I would love DV to give us a percentage like I just did on the DV and the Ascent.

    No, it's both conduction and convection (DaVinci) although I couldn't tell you how that is distributed.

    Edit:

    If I miss it going in my pocket and it hits the floor, will the glass bowl/stem break? Price point? Min/max loads? How does it handle oil, do I just throw a dab in the glass bowl and magic? Why should I get this as my next portable, what makes it better than other stuff? I've already got dedicated portable flower (MFLB w/ shorty stems, glass stem, and both water pipe adapters) and a TV Ultra with AVA for e-ciggin' and the DART for oils... of course, like most... I suffer from VAS now too :myday: How does it perform with a waterpipe?

    I'm still in awe over the style. Slick as a gravy sandwich. I was waiting for the Cera or Inhalator XP to come out, but now I think I'll wait for this beauty.

    this thing looks sleek and awesome.... it really could be a PAX killer if it pans out that way. i am expecting a pretty hefty price tag to be attached to this thing which will knock me out :( but if it's reasonable and works good... i will be all over it!!! this really looks like it could be my companion on those long road trips through the mountains on my bike. this could be the the ONE. please... oh please.... will the price be in my budget :bowdown:

    OhTheAgony..... you lucky bastard.... i am guessing this is the vape you will be getting from the contest you won!!!!

    I don't want to be another one in the hype machine, but I have to admit that the GonG path, oil+flower and long battery had me really want to know more about this vape.

    Nice looking unit. Skipped out on the first Da Vinci, but I could see the Ascent fitting into my collection.

    Speculation:

    After thinking about it, I'm guessing that the Ascent is designed around 2 Panasonic IMR Hybrid High Drain 18650 2250mAH Li-Ion batteries. That would make it the most powerful portable on the market. It would easily be capable of handling concentrates as well as buds. They say it will be smaller than an iPhone, which to me means not much smaller than an iPhone. The iPhone is:

    Height: 4.87 inches (123.8 mm)​
    Width: 2.31 inches (58.6 mm)​
    Depth: 0.30 inch (7.6 mm)​
    Weight: 3.95 ounces (112 grams)​

    The batteries are about 2.55 inches (65 mm) tall and two of them would weigh about 3 ounces (80 grams). They're about .73 inches (18.6 mm) in diameter so you can see that using the Panasonics you could make the Ascent slightly smaller (but probably slightly heavier) than an iPhone. I say slightly heavier because I'm guessing that the heating element and glass will weigh over an ounce (I don't think I need to say how many g to you stoners).

    Yeah the photo made me think it would be roughly the same height as an iPhone 3G, but slightly less wide.

    Your pretty close on the battery specs, I'm waiting on the exact specs from our tech department before officially answering.

    Regarding the Iphone size, its slightly shorter than an Iphone, but thicker and of course heavier. We decided to cast an aluminum body for the unit, so it lending to the weight, not the mention the glass and 2 batteries. It doesn't feel too heavy in the hand though. About equal to the DaVinci in weight.
