    How hard is it to ask someone to hold the phone...:bang:

    The size doesn't look bad (slowly getting there) but I don't like that kind of oven with a few holes on the bottom that lead to the inside of the vape where it most likely won't be cleanable. I might be wrong about that though!

    It sounds more like a conduction vape though, no?
    The Vapor Box TBH actually heats the air inside of the chamber, which causes true vaporization.
    [...]
    Inside the box, a chamber of ceramic heating coils heats the air, vaporizing the dry herb inside with no combustion.

    Anyway that's another thread to follow for me, FC got me hooked to new vapes hype!

    Thanks for the find @vapurrr :)

    Edit:
    I was looking at their site and went for the testimonials part:


    That plus the kind of marketing punchlines they use make me quite unsure about that brand but I find it quite funny too though!
    A vast majority of the portable dry herb vaporizers on the market today are hiding a dirty little secret; they are not true vaporizers!
    The Vapor Box TBH is a huge breakthrough in the loose leaf, portable, true vaporizer market.

    Yeah that really stood out to me, it's like someone forgot to do some research into actual portable vapes that people actually buy for actual dry herb...

    So right there with you @°k. I keep tilting my head to see what's off-screen. You know, like with a soft core porn:)

    Hate to judge prematurely, but first thoughts, at this size, the box shape seems like it would be uncomfortable in a pocket, where rounded edges, like the Inhalater, PNP, Ascent, or PAX, are comfortable.

    Those exhales seemed pretty thick, almost smoke like.

    I think these folks fell a little short in their design department and I wonder if they did their research on what's currently available in the field, and on the horizon.

    But as usual, hope it rocks, proves my prejudice wrong, and it lands in my signature

    Update: The COO of the company tweeted the picture below. "For dry herbs, wax, and oil" I wonder how they'll incorporate the wax and oil part...I'm guessing capsules like the Ascent uses?

    from the point of view of an ecig manufacturer, they are right, somehow.

    From a biased point of view you mean, right? :D
    But yeah I hear you many of those claimed to be vaporizer are not, but it's a not a secret for the FC people! Neither it is I'm sure for the ecig manufacturers! :cuss:

    Just a quick update: The heater definitely is "medical grade" ceramic. Here's a photo someone posted from the NATO show in Las Vegas. Apparently this thing uses screens for wax and oil, but I feel like the holes in the chamber are going to require a screen for dry herb anyway. We shall see.

    I dont know if its the angle of the picture or if it was just poorly put together but it looks like the washer or bowl are misaligned... Also looks like glazed ceramic in there...

    Not digging it either

    Hey All,

    I just got to try this out last weekend in Denver at the Cup. Let me tell you, it's better than anything else I've smoked from. Tastes bomb and hits like a dream. Give it a try!

    Welcome @LBJohnny
    You said it's better than anything else you've "smoked" from. That may have been a "for lack of a better word" sort of thing or you may have missed the name of this forum, but we're vaporists as opposed to smokers.
    We are a curious bunch when a new vape comes out so, with that in mind, what vaporizers have you compared this to and can you provide more specifics about the unit and your experience with it?
    Thanks!

    Sorry! Old habits die hard. I can try and answer any questions you might have. I don't own one and I only got to try it for about 5 minutes. I have a Pax and compare it to that. I like the clean tasting hit that the ceramic bowl provided. Seemed a little odd to me that it needed to warm up and be monitored as to not overheat the material. With that said, I think it's something I could get used to.

    Thanks!

    Good evening Ladies & Gents.

    I was fortunate enough to attend the Cannabis Cup in Denver to check out some of the companies we have invested into. I am a stock holder, here is my unbiased review thus far. One of those happens to be SPLI-The Vapor Group. I ended up talking with them and purchased the THB-The Vapor Box after much anticipation from PR's and word of mouth.

    The Vapor Box comes neatly and tightly packed with all the contents you will need to make this device a successful product. You have a container for your oils, a wire brush to clean the ceramic chamber, 3 soft plastic tips for the mouthpiece, a oil plate adapter, and a charger. Last bur not least THB unit itself. It is easy to use and turns on with 5 pushes on the single power button.

    Once you have packed your herb/oil you replace the mouthpiece and wait 90 seconds, more so the later. Once you have THB heated up taking a rip is easy as inhaling, unlike other devices it offers little resistance and it shows with the amount of vapor produced. Once you take your 2nd rip it is advised that you power down the unit as it will heat up to a max of 480 degrees and can cause combustion if left on. The higher heat is due to oil compatibility. Even after powering down you are able to finish the first wave of hits and then you can open, redistribute, and then re-power up for the 2nd wave of vapor-tastic fun. The 2nd wave is the popcorn and not necessary but can be done.

    If you are using quality bud you can get anywhere from 3-5 quality rips with another 2-5 so-so/popcorn rips. If you have vaped before you know what that means. The chamber itself appears to fit around .25 of a gram possibly more. The overall result is a smooth and solid unit that is cheaper than its competitors.

    Now clear the vapid bud out and drop the included oil skillet into the ceramic chamber the place your dab/earl/wax inside onto of the skillet. Turn on THB with 5 clicks, then 5 to begin heating. In under a minute THB is ready to hit and gives anywhere from 4-8 large rips depending on the size of dab loaded. After the chamber is free of any stick matter. It it just as easy to switch between bud and earl by taking the skillet out and replacing with dry herb. I have hit around 30-40 bowls so far with no issues other than the batter dying after prolonged use. Charge up is between 1.5-2hrs.

    Retailing around $180 in stores and shipping out around the end of May realistically. Future models to include variable temp control, blue tooth control, app for smart phones, etc...

    Send any questions and I'll do my best. Thanks and thank you vapor group for putting out a quality product! I will do a follow after a week or twos succeeding testing.

    Demo's:
    Herb: I let the heating chamber go too long as I was anxious and this was my 2nd time using ever. If used like stated above it heats just like a volcano and a volcano can crisp bud if turned up too high. Also the next generation will have a variable temp control/lcd screen/bluetooth etc... 20+bowls later and no char just clean great hits. I will bake with my leftovers in time.


    Oil:


    P.S. I can do follow up vids to show anything more or life facetime to prove what I am saying.

    Now I am more suspicious than before. Something about the above post strikes me as out of place. That is a lot of trouble to go to and a lot of help to offer for a company that one is not involved with.

    I am but a simple stock holder, other than that the connection is the product is good and I am using it daily. I can't convince conspiracy theory mindsets but my only objective is transparency and awareness for a company I support verbally and in stock. I am not paid and am actually 20k down from the stock =) Again if things go wrong and it turns to be a shit product in a week or two I'll write about that. I am sorry I have a positive review of a good product thus far.

    Well obviously you are attempting to promote this product which you have a financial interest in. For your review to be in any way objective you should have clearly stated that you have invested money in the product. You did not simply stumble across it at the Cannabis Cup.

    Anyway, good luck with it.

    Unless this is the most efficient vape every made, which at $180 pirce tag i doubt it is, that 5-10 hits off a 0.25 possibly more load is not that great. I load about 0.1 in my firefly and get 10-15 hits

    i think the past has showen very often, that nobody should buy a unit without knowing anything about it. too many shady companys are in this business, unfortunately.
    so I can understand why many people won't trust your opinion, unless someone else with a good reputation says the same about it.

    However, I think it's very important for a new companys to work very close with the community like the indica guys do, so I appreciate your honesty about who you are, but i think it would have been this companys duty to introduce their own product.
    just throwing somthing out on the market is a marketing fail imho.

    As far as I know this vaporizer isn't actually for sale yet aside from the limited number of units they were selling for $100 at the cup. I agree though, I'd be completely fine removing this thread if they decide to create their own. Feedback makes a huge difference.

    the vapor box is the newest victim of chinese fraud.
    you can find it on the well-known portals as Dark Knight Vaporizer (for 25-35$)
    or maybe the vapor box is just another re-branded vaporizer from china?!

    edit: now, I'm pretty sure that the vapor box is just a re-branded Dark Knight!!!
