    Can't wait for the vids! How hot did the unit get, say, after 15 minutes use? 30? Could it ever get too hot to hold?

    I doubt it. The CPU would cut it off. But we're doing those kinds of temp tests this week.

    Operating temp is determined by user inhalation, within a range. The CPU tries to optimize based on current temp and puff. It's something we have a lot of control over when finalizing firmware.

    Can we get updated pics and videos please ? I own the Pax and Volcano among other vapes. I'm desperately looking to find a new portable vape. I'm very dissatisfied with the Pax. The Uptoke cigar sounds like my dream come true. I'm not willing to cough up $300 until I see pics and vids of the actual units that will be shipped.

    Found an article earlier today and it was talking about the UpToke Spyre. Couldn't find anything here about it. It has some features that could make it a very good portable. It looks like it is a Cera copycat.

    I would love to see it in action!

    FC, whats your thoughts on this? Maybe one of you already have seen it or used it?

    I've seen this before, but under a different name. I believe it was called The Ent.

    It was called the UpToke, actually, and I'm surprised we haven't got a thread on the spyre already. It's been talked about on reddit quite a bit.

    I found out about this at least a month ago.. I meant to bring it up, but forgot all about it.. I found out about another one too that has yet to be mentioned(I forget what it's called).. but that one was an over sized pen vape that looked to be about a foot long, so I didn't even want to bring it up.. I wouldn't be surprised if we never heard about that 2nd one over here..

    Looks a bit conductiony with the 2sec reheat time and 300puff charge capacity.

    Colour me curious though. Although it seems bigger than the cera... 7in.

    I'm in the market for a new portable vape. There are a few things I am very curious about.

    Convection or conduction?
    What kind of material is the chamber/ vapor path made out of?
    What kind of size are we looking at length wise?

    Looking forward to learning more.

    I would love to know more about this vape and see more hands on reviews. Im not sure how under wraps it is being kept thus far because I cant find very much on the internet about the Spyre. The specs though seem amazing and I would love to see and find out more! I am interested about the battery life and temperature. I read the posts above but found it a little unclear as to several things. First does the vaporizer turn off automatically if left idle? I currently own a pinnacle pro and find that one of the best features is an auto shutoff since many times one can be forgetful during a session. Another inquiry I have is how exactly does it regulate the temperature by draws? Does it heat up that quick that by adding a few seconds to your draw it can go up 100 degrees? This is important to get that perfect ABV

    I don't know if I'd say things are under wraps, we're pretty approachable at shows. But we're waiting until we send out demo/review units before we do a big online push. Everyone loves videos, after all. To briefly touch on your questions, think of the control mechanism like a smart e-cig. It turns on when inhaling, so it doesn't need to auto shut-off. Temperature is regulated by a CPU running an algorithm that analyzes data from a pressure and various temperature sensors.

    Interesting, both grasshopper and your unit have a "smart heat" feature activated by drawing. How's battery life?

    If you can really somehow whip this thing out and inhale and instantly get good quality vapor I will buy one. Can't wait for some videos/reviews.

    The company notified me they're shipping the first units May 2014. I'm a bit sceptical and waiting until I'm able to read real reviews and see actual user videos.

    I would suggest multiple temp options or at least a programmable temp that you could set it to the one you want.

    Just happened to stumble across this thing in my internet surfing. Spyre vaporizer. This thing not only looks badass but its heating element is fully enclosed in quartz glass! Even though it's designed atm for flower, I'm sure it would work great with concentrates, and they say they have a separate atty coming out later this year that will be for concentrates. Any body out there see one of these yet or get the chance to try one? Please let us know how this baby works!
