i can't explain why, but at first it reminded me of something that could be a product of the star wars universe. i have to admit, i wasn't expecting such a dramatic turn in the shape department and was slightly underwhelmed with the result. the pet food dispenser associations obviously also jumped to my mind. but after vapolution cleared the things up, i can see myself get used to the appearance of the vap 3.0. to be honest, i didn't like the shape of the vap 2.0 either. i always was a fan of the camping gaz stove appeal of the original model. the puzzled look of the customs officer at the airport while checking my baggage was priceless.
