    I like the Vaponic cause since it is hot enough you can take 3-5, maybe 6 hits!

    It stays hot for +1mn at least. The abv comes out dark brown after 3-4 heating cycle so something like 10-20 hits per session. Average load is less than 0.1.

    Amazing underrated vape!

    The company went belly up or something? I've read reports that they are not for sale anymore or something?

    What happened? Why would a company that produces a great product just get up and disappear?

    Who knows - probably just the realities of a small start up business, gone but not forgotten.

    I've only had the Vaponic for 24 hours...no kidding!... but my report is good. It seems like it's quite possible to use less herb to achieve the same result as the Flowermate. It's much lighter and the 'felt pen disguise' holder is cool! Learning curve is very short, but then I've used a Vapor Genie. You will need a good lighter and a can of Butane. I like it!

    Glad to see the Vaponic gettin some love! It was the vaporizer that made me rethink flame based vaporization and the turning point to a more simple and economic vaping tool which solved much of my issues with other portable vapes.

    I took it out a couple days ago to vape some reclaim from my Lotus and it was hit after hit of thick clouds, not that tasty because most terpenes were gone but still a very pleasant session!

    I must admit that I've been intrigued and tempted by the vaponic.. seems like a very nice, simple, cheap but powerful little vape!! Discrete as hell as well..is there anything more that you need?
    And since taste as I read is pretty nice as well, why not? I think that vaponic deserves some love indeed @vorrange ! :)
    Looks like that butane and vapor is an evil twin kind of thing :D
    Daamn.. This month has to come to an end soon so that some income can be earned in order to be spent!! :bang::hmm: :whoa:
    I wanna buy like half the vaporizers being discussed in the busiest topics.. :rofl:
    vaponic and xmax pro will probably make the resolution for the possible next buys though.. hopefully pretty sooon!!

    It's a very very nice vape once you master it. Great flavour, a bit more stoney than the Lotus so a great combo to have. :)

    It is a great go-out vape since it is so easily concealable and carried around.

    what would you suggest me as extras to order with the vaponic then?
    I'm thinking of a kit along with an extra filter. How long does a filter last? It should be for some time for sure..

    That's a shame I didn't pull the trigger on the Vaponic some years ago, that's the vape to be combustion-free keeping a big part of the ritual!
    And the taste my friends! ....and the cheap price also....

    The only downside is it's fragile since it's all glass!

    I have the same filter still and i torch to clean it... but it wont hurt to have extra filters.

    I don't have any other extras with the vaponic, it fits a 14mm gong if you want to use it with a bubbler.

    a agree, you don't need a lot of extras with the vaponic except a good torch. i got a spare filter, but only just in case. when i bought mine, it came with a spare outer tube, it might set you up for the first accident. :) i don't know whether they still do it though. what i like about the vaponic is, that you can buy parts separately, when something breaks. but since they are available for around 30 EUR a back-up isn't a bad idea. thanks for the idea @RastaVapa. :)
    @biohacker , i think most of us here can't explain why the vaponic gets so little love. only ten pages are really a joke. the device definitelly needs some pacience to master it. i remember that i had very mixed feelings in the beginnig. but once i learned to use it propperly it gained a firm spot in my rotation. i don't think, that anybody with a strong determination to master the correct technique will ever consider it a disappointing purchase. especially at such a low price for that much performance.

    @voodoo_vape I don't have any extras for mine.

    Everything is in the box and also not really tempted/needed to mod it in any way as I do with other vapes.

    Funnily enough, it seems the popularity of it's closest "rival" the VapCap is actually driving up interest on this one.

    i was actually thinking of buying a VapCap too. but now, reading the comparisons, i'm starting to think, that this niche is actually perfectly filled with the vaponic for me.

    Pretty much this, but, the clicky cap really is awesome for convenience and less risk of combustion, and the ti woody is more sturdy, otherwise. ..yeah.

    you pretty much summed up my reasoning behind wanting to get a vapcap in the first place. :)

    I'm closer of combustion with the VapCap than the way I use my Vaponic, and taste is a way better for me!

    I think it's cause the load is more isolated from the torch, using the Vapcap the load is closer of the direct heat .

    And Vaponic airflow is a lot easier to manage.

    True.
    The vaponic has more tolerance with the load separated from the outside tube. And also the air gets heated by the outside tube as it passes and heats the load and the inside tube (more) too. This helps with the better taste and why you tend to get clouds more one the second pull and i can get more puffs per heat cycle.

    Watching the load colour change or feeling the heat with your finger make it pretty easy to control, but the vapcap is kind of like cruise control, and of course you lose things for the convenience.

    I like them both. They are more different from each other than i was initially expecting.

    I have both.I use the Vaponic more.My go to method is with a triple torch and it's perfect.Super quick 5 second heat up & I never combust.

    Vaponic has great flavour similar to lotus imo.I also find the Vaponic very intuitive.I get gradual thick vapor over lots of hits & no restriction are why I choose Vaponic.

    It's the Vaponic thread so I won't talk Vapcap but there are differences between the two.

    Imo the maker of Vaponic got it spot on.there is no improvement needed.that magic is there

    its time will come

    I was surprised at how different they are given i thought that the Vapcap was going to be a more convenient/sturdy vaponic. The vape signature/effects are very different. And true, given the low cost of both, you can't really go wrong.

    Everything @u bwade wunner said above is spot on.

    Vaponic has way more convection than people give credit IMO, and a looser draw which helps with convection. That seems to be the main difference that allows for different effects. IT still has a lot of conduction, at least comparing to my Lotus.
