    Nice find, apparently it'll survive drop tests, water submersion tests, being run over by a BMW E30 and being set on fire... Haha.

    Good for oil and herb...

    "The patented heating core system uses a medical device grade inert porous ceramic with an operating temperature of 1400 F to insulate a pure Nichrome heating coil. The heating core is completely free from solder (used commonly to make electrical connections, and often contains lead). All O-Rings are FDA approved medical device grade. All machined components, down to the smallest part, are held to an exacting 5/10,000 of an inch tolerance."

    On battery life: " On average, one battery will support 20 minutes of continuous Vaporization, make sure to keep the batteries charged constantly. One load will provide between 4 to 8 draws, depending on your usage/taste preferences."

    Very interesting stuff.

    Exactly what I was thinking. This looks cool! I like the 5 sec heat up time. Reviews anyone?

    Obviously noone has it yet. The website was all white yesterday then today BAM all of this new info and awesome pictures. It really seems like this is going to be big and im proud to have started this thread. Hopefully it sticks around. So please anyone willing to spend 250 let us know how it is. They have a distributor here too by the way but im not sure how legit they are. Link

    I think people have dealt with Gotvape shenanigans before.. Not the best retailer.

    This thing looks amazing! If it can actually deliver what it promises then I suspect that this may be the best 'stealthy' portable on the market.

    I am very interested in this vape. I read everything on the website but I couldn't find any mention or description of the air/vaporpath. Where does the fresh air come in from, how does it travel to the bowl?

    Also, the website states that this a convection based vape, so does that mean the bowl doesn't get hot like a herbalaire's crucible does? Or is more likely a combo of conduction and convection like pretty much like every other vape except for a heat gun which I consider the only true convection vape available because the heat gun only uses hot air to heat up your product.

    Since the bowl has holes in the bottom, is there some sort of cleanable catch bucket under the bowl to prevent abv from falling into the heater andthe rest of the vape? I could see possible combustion taking place if the abv makes it to the heater core.

    On page 22 of the user manual it states that if the bowl gets to messy to remove the heater core and bowl in step 1. In step 2 it says to rinse and use hot water to thoroughly clean it. Do you intend for the heater core to be washed as well or should it be placed off to the side so you can wash the body of the Thermovape?

    I Don't understand your last post vaporboxed, do you mean that you can turn the Thermovape into an Ecig, or do you mean it can vape Oil just like an omicron? What are vapor oil cartridges?

    Can we get an FC discount? Is it available outside the US?

    First, Its not my vape. I dont think you wash the heater. It looks like you can use BHO in the oil attachment i just dont know how.

    I really like the use of removeable, easily replaceable batteries. I would presume since its a nichrome heating coil/element that the "bowl" doesnt heat much. If it cools down quickly too it could be used like a hard hitting MFLB, being able to deliver 1 hit at a time.

    Took the plunge.....both excited and scared to be an early adopter. It just looks too ideal to pass up, i was gonna order a stealthvape on release but this thing looks to be on another level, usually id be more apprehensive about just jumping in but my mflb hasnt been cutting it lately and deep down i fear my NO2 :lol: hope this thing is as nice as it looks

    Any idea when Thermovape plans to start shipping? I love my WISPR but I'm looking to add a quiet portable to my lineup. I like that it appears you can use it as a nice quiet one hitter.

    Im surprised. There are a few problems i see. First off its a three month warranty i think and for 250 thats pricey. Second, In the fire test video why is smoke coming from the heat exchange? Im also worried that the glowing red heater gets too hot and burns the material. I just hope that SF gets his vape fast with no problems so he can answer any of these q's.

    I was waiting on the Stealthvape but this thing looks awesome. Please post a review when you receive. IMO the site looks legit, but I have been wrong before.
