    Damn you beat me to it. I was writing this response earlier today but had to leave the house before I could finish writing it.

    I was going to say with a temp range like that they should have called it the Sativa because you are going to get those low temp high. :(

    Sadly I can tell from the get go this will not be a good option for me. I like the form factor allot. Always like the classic zippo style... I wonder if you could do zippo tricks with the Indica Vaporizer?

    It is pretty much a requirement for me if I am going to use the device. Anything below around 400F makes the conditions I am trying to treat worse. Only at the higher temps do I get pain relief and enough sedative effect to stop my symptoms.

    if this thing can deliver results like the pax I bet it will become a big competitor, I really like the small
    form factor, something I've been waiting for since my dreams got crushed when the stealthvape became vaporware...
    But...one big concern I have and that is how easy is it to clean this thing? with the pax you can go from
    top to bottom in a straight line making cleaning pretty easy, here I can't see any other way to clean
    the vapor path by bending pipe cleaners and try working behind the corner...altough I don't suspect that it will have the same (bad?) idea like the pax and build the on off connection close to where the most resin buildup appears but after awhile you really need to clean that path so...curious about that one !

    I suspect you use a pipe cleaner through the top of the mouthpiece to get to the vapor path. Then you can just clean the oven out with a q-tip or something. Don't think it will be that complicated. They would really shoot themselves in the foot if it was hard to clean. People can be really fussy about cleanliness.

    Love the form factor. Agree with everyone else about temps...

    This looks like the male version of the Pax I've been waiting for (except the low temp :(). The Pax is very sharp and Appley, but too cute for me, like a VW Bug with plastic flowers and vase. I am being very 2-dimensional in my thinking ... just an impression.

    Had another e-mail session with the manufacture/creator. Here are some answers.:tup:
    First to address your earlier question regarding the vaporization path, we will be molding the mouth piece out of stainless steel

    Regarding the price, we have worked hard to keep all these quality attributes at an affordable price point without compromising the end product. With that said we plan to sell the Indica at a price slightly below $200.00.

    Edit: I originally thought they skipped this question when I asked in the first e-mail, turns out that I forgot to ask about this in my first e-mail to them :doh:
    Your forum members actually assisted us in determining the Vape temp range for herbal THC. Though it may not satisfy everyone, we felt it complimented 90% - 95% of those in the know. Please don't get me wrong, this is what the majority of Vapor consumers prefer and what research has provided, but personal preference prevail.
    Regarding cleaning, We have created the Indica Pick which has multiple applications. This stainless steel device can be attached to your key ring and is used for loading / unloading leaf and flower as well as cleaning the chamber. We have provided 5 screens for the chamber which we suggest replacing 1 each after 15 to 20 fills. Additionally we have supplied a wire chamber brush for added inside chamber cleaning. The key to a good draw of vapor is an open air path. The mouth piece is designed to be removed in inorder to give you access to the air channel. Along with the cleaning tools are 5 pipe cleaners. We suggest you clean this area regularly to remove resin buildup close to the chamber. This is a simple task and will keep the flow smooth and the experience enjoyable.\


    We have put a lot of thought into passing on added value. Being well aware of sustainability and packaging waist, we designed the retail box to be a reusable beautiful lacqered wooden storage container that has a slide out cover with our Logo burnt into the top. It looks like art work and can function in any way you wish after you have taken the Indica out for it's portable use.
    Finally, to protect the Indica, we have supplied you with a velvet pull string stash/storage bag to protect the device while in your pocket or on the go.

    Bummmer... those temperatures to me seem more recreational then medical... particularly for pain and sedation. I think they really missed the mark on that one. I would be purchasing this one, but the temperature ranges are just too low for what I actually need. I think if people like Sativas and those energetic type highs they will probably enjoy this device. It looks to be doing lots of stuff right in my book... just missed the mark on temperature in my assessment.

    Yes, the Zippo-huffing look might make it a little less discreet than otherwise. But it is all the rage in the North Caucasus I hear! :razz:

    Indica Tip #1: Always have a real Zippo up your sleeve, and if a cop approaches (... sleight of hand ...) just show him the real lighter and look all innocent shrugging your shoulders :shrug:

    I wonder how this forum aided in the temp selection. I would think this forum would lead to a different conclusion like in the PN thread. My guess is it really has to do with the size of the unit and the amount of battery they can pack into it. Higher temps take a lot more energy.

    I think you are probably right stickstones.. I imagine offering higher temps would also greatly reduce their run times. Yeah, sorry for being mr obvious here.. : )

    I've been looking at the pictures of the indica vaporizer and I've been wondering where the air inlets are...as far as I can see there are none, wich means it gets the air needed from the sides of the oven lid, maybe?
    This makes me wonder if, when tightly packed, it will have a restricted airflow (like the pax)
    At first I was thinking maybe the black square just above the herb chamber is an air inlet but upon inspecting closer I think it's some kind of switch?

    Theres no actual pictures yet, those are just computer generated mock ups so theres no way to know if itll still look like that when it does come out or how it will work.

    Battery life (continuous use):
    • 1.5 hours highest setting | 2.5 hours lowest setting
    • Up to 2 weeks of regular use between charges
    Sounds good to me! ^^

    Well, this vape looks interesting. To me, the stealth factor is awesome. Now, as far as performance, who knows how it will work..but to me the stealth option is great and I would love to see more stealth vape ideas

    I guess their definition of "regular use" is a lot different than mine. No way in hell any vape can go two weeks between charges unless it is powered by uranium.

    Agreed, 2 weeks is totally unrealistic for me.

    My inhalater turns off automatically after what I think is 8 Minutes, I will usually do 2 cycles during a session when I'm on the go. So their given 90 minute time on the highest setting that would last me around 5.5 on the go sessions if it is anything like my inhalater. Id say I am not usually gone long enough to warrant 2 sessions. So this would probably last me between 2-3 days then considering I use a desktop unit while at home. Not bad, not really great either, but not bad. I could probably remember to plug it in one of those days. However my dead inhalater nearby argues differently.

    My bigger concern rather than the battery or tempurate, is that herb chamber looks awfully small to hold .4g. My inhalater holds around that I believe and the capsules are quite large. I suppose if that chamber runs all the way the length of the vaporizer then MAYBE, but I'm thinking their drawings are a little off, either that or this thing is a lot bigger than I'm expecting.

    Edit: After reading through the entire thread it sounds like the chamber does in fact run the length of the unit. Empying and filling might prove complicated however.

    I found a picture a few days ago, I was just waiting on verification to post it. That was given today. It was taken in April during the High Times Cannabis Cup in Denver. :tup: [​IMG]
    Since then I was told that the design of the box has been changed slightly.
    Another detail that was discussed is the addition of a wooden retail box.

    I'm curious if the outside will be in some kind of metal or if it's going to be some sort of metal looking plastic. I don't mind plastic (I love my pinnacle and it's all plastic) but I would prefer an all black (or other color) plastic above a white plastic with a shiny coating on top wich will scratch of in a matter of weeks and I really hope the indica doesn't have some kind of "switch" in the hinge part so you can turn it on, close it and put it in your pocket when it's heating up or close it in between inhales, making it even less obvious that it is a vaporizer.

    I think the temps are good, around 372 is perfect for me.

    I like this vape, even if it is not as sophisticated as others, it has marvellous size and looks.
    Let's hope they hit their deadline...no more pain waiting for vapes!

    I think this thing looks really promising. I'll bet it's a lot like a pax. But the zippo-esq design is what draws me as a nearly lifelong zippo carrier even after I quit smoking.

    I just recieved an email from the manufacturer
    (I asked if he could participate on the forum, as it was much apriciated on other forums with other
    manufacturers)
    He told me he reads on the forums to learn and look for good tips, wich made them have some changes already like making sure the oven door will slide off completely in order to have better acces to the oven
    for cleaning/loading.
    One of the interesting things he wrote is that the indica appears to work better and roast more evenly
    with a non packed oven compared to a packed oven, it would be better to "under fill" the chamber.
    So not so comparable to the pax after all then..
    Sounds cool if it works well with smaller loads, it would be nice if it worked well with full ovens too.
    Lets hope we'll see them in here soon !
