    Most probably the filament will start to glow ...
    At least for a while.
    Soon ,the oxygen in the atmospheric air will start oxidising the filament,
    with the latter being deteriorating quite fast .

    I do not need to cool my vapcap, I am usually able to remove the cap and the ABV before the first click; With a quick turn and helped by the dynastash magnet, my cap out of the vapcap before the click and does not retract hardly any heat so it is possible to take it with my hands without burning ... if you want I show you a video!
    accustomed to dealing with hot glass the thin metal of the VC is barely hot for my hands ... but I do not need to do this if there is no rush to get medicated :rofl:

    Hey guys, after a succeful short relation with my m, im starting to get REALLY interested with the omni.

    I happen to find some people in reddit that had their omni condenser screw separated from the condenser body and therefore loosing the airflow adjustment capability.

    This makes me feel that the M, although simpler in design, makes it more durable because of it. Any comments? Am I being too paranoid?

    Try both yourself, and make your own decisions.

    To me, the M is a tank, as compared to the refine Omni.

    They both function well, which will make you baked. And smilin. :mmmm:

    The Omni condenser screw........think about that..........a screw........in a manual device. And it will come apart if you turn it. I wonder what happens if you learn this beautifully designed and manufactured piece so that you understand its mechanical interactions.......:sherlock:

    Once in a great while I will stop by reddit, and run away screaming. Most of the time it’s a traffic jam of stupid:bang:

    If you keep unscrewing something it will eventually run out of threads, folks.
    I get so frustrated with people buying something and not learning how it works. When you buy a Vapcap, field strip it, put it together, field strip it, put it together, repeat, repeat, repeat, until you know how it works and how it fits together. You have to step up and shoulder the responsibility of owning and using the damn thing. I like everyone on here, but newbies need to quit asking someone else to do their job.
    I can not tell you how to use it. I can tell you how I use it, and I have already done so, many times. READ THE THREAD, or at the very least the Best Of thread. Ok, rant over. Pineapple Express is kicking in. Doc

    I like that. That should be a banner on the front page of reddit.
    How frustrating that will be for the Martians. We'll have to let Musk's first crew know they will need to bring along a stem, condenser and tip.

    That person did not have the Omni assembled properly and had the mouthpiece unscrewed from the condenser. The mp and condenser screw together and the threads allow you to just engage the threads or to screw them together tightly all the way, or any adjustment in-between. Screwing it together opens the airpath and unscrewing legthens the condenser and pushes it farther into the tip or herb chamber thereby cutting off the air flow. The assembly is meant to be adjusted through screwing the mouthpiece further on or off the threads. Like any threaded implement you can disassemble by screwing all the way off. Think of how a a nut and bolt works.

    The M is the basic entry level, all stainless steel Vapcap. The Omni is the top of the line all titanium Vapcap with it's precision milled titanium tip, condenser and mouthpiece.

    The M is the least expensive Vapcap at $50. It has a stainless steel construction, including the tip. It is a great vaporizer but is basic in its design and engineering compared to the titanium tipped series of Vapcaps. Although you can switch out the stainless steel stem for other stems or Body/mp combinations, it does not have full modularity. For example, the Omni condenser will not function properly with the M tip. The ss tip is not quite as nimble as the ti tip with fewer, more shallow air channels. It likely has a greater conduction ratio. The M is a fantastic economical vaporizer.

    The all titanium Omnivap is the top of the line. It is a beast. The build is very tight, beautifully engineered with incredibly tight tolerances and should be considered a work of art. The Omnivap is beautiful and could be considered indestructible. The Omni condenser/mp is not only a precision milled component which offers a set it and forget it airflow, perfect for use with water pieces, but it's robust core offers additional strength and density to the overall design. The titanium tip is more finely crafted and precision engineered than the stainless steel M tip. It has an more air channels and they are wider and deeper and has finely milled fins. There is an addition oring to create a tight fit onto the condenser and into the body or stem. I think that the 5th gen ti tips offer a higher convection ratio. You can run over your Omni with your car but I don't think the M may not fare so well.

    The full modularity of the ti tipped Vapcaps mean that you can switch up bodies and stems, straight or VonGs, mouthpieces and condensers.

    This may have changed on newer models, but my omni condenser has 3 pieces: ti mouthpiece with female threading, ti "collar" with male threading, and ss condenser. The collar piece is press fit onto the condenser. I've seen posts where the collar has come loose from the condenser (@WakeAndVape?).

    @Sinnoah, is that the problem you're talking about or is it something different?

    Thanks for clarifying, @Sinnoah. You'll obviously avoid that issue entirely with the M, but it's not common at all so I wouldn't let it stop you from getting an omni if that's what you really want.

    I sadly suffer from ocd and in that regard the M is truly a worry free piece. I’ll just buy more for backup sake haha

    the omni is really tough, more durable than probably any vape on the market. And on the unlikely chance that something does go wrong Dynavap has amazing customer service and would have you fixed up in no time

    Brother, the Omnivap will not break on you. The people that had it separate from the condenser tube are doing something very wrong. It's engineered extremely well, idk if george is an engineer (I assume he is) but a lot of thought went into this. So if this is something you want, don't worry and jump on it!

    same thing with mine.
    i'm sure every case is different...but mine came seperated and i thought thats what it was supposed to do, after talking to dynavap i figured out that it wasn't supposed to be like that and they sent me a replacement...

    when i got the new one i realized that having the 'broken' condenser did not affect performance, it would just slide every once in a while.

    Those people (I'm one of them) didn't do something very wrong. When mine separated, Matt took care of it very quickly and knew what the issue was right away. He explained that there was a batch of tubing where the tolerance was slightly off, and that caused the press fit pieces to work loose with time and use. The replacement condenser has been rock solid with daily usage.

    Omnivap is still my #1.

    Whenever I wind up on reddit, I always regret it. It seems as though most everyone is really immature, and I feel sorry for anyone seeking knowledge there. A member over there did something unwise and made the mistake of admitting to it and seriously the next 50 comments were members dogging the kid, name-calling, just ugly crowd-mentality stuff.

    Makes me so grateful for the FC rules of conduct, even more so for the members who create a culture of kindness, generosity, and helpfulness. Multiply this by 100 in these parts. Unfortunately, this doesn't reflect the reality elsewhere in cyberspace. Which is why FC is so important for many members, I suspect.

    @Dynalowrider Preach it Doc! Vapcaps deserve a certain level of commitment to achieve optimal results. Having so few parts means easy cleaning when required, easy maintenance and repairs if needed. Seems lately in a few threads I frequent the level of posts with questions that were answered 2 pages back, or someone says "convince me X is best", or "I need help and am too busy to read this whole thread. I have a life!" have gone up considerably. My favourite? "I've tried 3 times/hours/days and either its busted or sucks. I give up!" or something to that effect. Why must so many be so stupid? Also, just my impression but in several threads I haunt, there's an uptick in the level of confrontation or defensiveness amongst members. Makes me sad because there's not so many of us vaporists, we should be kind and seek to understand one another. This stupid hippie-dippie sentiment is mine alone. YMMV! :cool:

    Secret confession:
    I love my wife, Dynavap, my dogs, my sons, FC, my extended family including my mother. In that order. :brow:

    EDIT: sorry, this reads way harsher than I originally intended. Probably broke the rules by calling some members stupid, def not cool. That was stupid of me, lol! I should just read today and leave the posting to more positive people.
    Oh and my flesh and blood children slightly edge out our furry ones, one of whom is named George. And without FC there would be no DV for me, so that's inaccurate too. Okay, all the souls under my roof, the woman who gave me life, and then FC & DV, my RL friends and extended family. This ranking seems more socially acceptable; but in my defence my sons are teens and our dogs are really well behaved and talk back much less...just saying, an argument could be made.
