    OUR WEB SERVER IS HAVING BANDWIDTH ISSUES. Images can be uploaded to another server if the problem continues. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    This is a vaporizer thats not hard to understand.
    Its price point is 249.99
    All California produced components
    Its got a standard 18.8mm joint.

    Its main body is about a 1/3 LB in weight.
    It's glass. Thick glass!
    [​IMG]
    Its has ground joint connectors on everything for everything.
    [​IMG]
    Its got a 60W Ceramic heater
    [​IMG]
    Here is the kicker..... Our company embraces modifying the heating element. Its user serviceable with simple tools and our PDF instruction manual. We have a titanium heating element that we will likely release once our first few rounds of vaporizers have been released.
    Its an expensive upgrade to stock for everyone at this moment, BUT what this means is that if you would like to upgrade for a higher heat range (750F), you don't need to change vaporizers to do so and we will help you do it.
    For those of you who cannot do it yourself, send it to us and your warranty should cover it. (1 year included free, upgrade-able to 3-5 year and lifetime warranty)


    Here is an infographic that will be updated once we get some more photos of our current adapters.
    [​IMG]
    Just in case you are wondering, that plastic adapter at the bottom right is our current vapor bag valve. There is a rubber o-ring for this thats not in the image.

    We are open for questions and tips on all designs before our launch.

    Thank you.
    Oh and Our beta website is up @ www.versavapor.com

    All feedback will be taken into consideration by our board of directors. To email the CEO of R&D directly please PM me and I will supply you with the email.

    Oh my!!! :o :drool:

    How thick is it? Can you put rubber bands on top and bottom to make it more durable to falls maybe? Silicon sleeves?

    Sexy unit!

    Any info on how ambient air enters the unit,
    and
    what the air is exposed to, on its way to the heating element?

    @natural farmer : Silicone sleeves could be considered if you can find any that will fit. We cannot recommend any that will work to increase durability because of the outer diameter of the vaporizer. We have done drop tests and the standard desk fall should be survived on most surfaces, of course speed of fall and angle are a factor but we have yet to break one. our wall thickness is about 3-4mm. I will get the exact specs in the morning.
    Update: The base ensures that if you need to set the vape down you wont have it fall. Cords should be dropped behind the surface to avoid feet and arm accidents.

    @SD_haze The air travels through the base when its in vertical mode & you have about 6 inches of all glass area before the air reaches the fiberglass sleeved wires on the ceramic heating element. All of these parts have passed our air quality tests. There are currently no components of the heating element that will produce a taste after our initial heat run in the manufacturing process. You'll get clean vapor. We test all items before we ship for air quality, or it wont ship.
    Update: Although this vapor quality has been the story of many vapes in the home arena, we are looking for a way to create an all glass vapor path. The titanium heating element upgrade will be another story and is not written in stone.

    When I saw "THICK GLASS" in your first post I thought it would be 5-7mm more likely... Well, if you say it's durable, it remains to be seen. :)

    So I guess this is the all glass e-nano equivalent, right?

    I really like the price point for an all glass vape, reminds me of a herborizer but more versatile.

    The glass we use is borosilicate pyrex. If you would prefer 5mm thickness as a minimum we may be able to implement that because we have different thicknesses to choose from. I will relay that message. :)

    We include an 18 mm adapter bowl. It can be used upside down or right side up depending upon your application. We include a dome screen for vertical applications such as a "hydro-tube". It utilizes a mesh screen in the center.

    Dome screen example

    Usage video with waterpipe 18mm and bag blowing is on its way right now.:)
    Take note that we will not display our proprietary blower (Vortex base) because we are still trying to achieve 10LPM minimum. We also will be using a third party dual screen whip and non proprietary bag system. We dont want to show our original equipment until we get moved into an official thread space and are 100% positive from our local test runs that the equipment is superior and worth the extra investment for our packages. (Building in california costs alot!)

    Ill be back in a few hours with that video.:razz:

    Great looking vaporizer, congrats! :)

    Couple of questions:

    1. Will you have a direct draw mode without whip? Perhaps something like a gong stem where you can insert the dome bowl?

    2. How tall is it?

    3. Is there a temperature control knob?

    That is the only thing I'm not incredibly excited about so far. The rest looks amazing for the price point. Competes with both my cloud and volcano, and is selling for 2.5x+ less. Good work.

    I suppose glass body vaporizers are a great idea. We have a modular design we are about to perfect which allows for 3 types of heaters to be used interchangeably. (Ceramic, All glass air path, titanium nail (for concentrates)) I cant give schematics just yet due to the popularity of FC. I will be able to release that info in February.)
    Thats for the Air pump. We support bag blowing as a stock accessory, with the vortex base as an upgrade.
    1. You can use it without the whip but we include a straw type whip which is 4-6 inches long.
    2. 7.5 inches tall
    3. Yes there is a temp control unit. (We wont display it until we get the screen printing completed.
    The fiberglass wires are coated in a very thin layer of high temp silicone. I should have mentioned that as well.

    I wish I could post more schematics, I'll ask if thats ok.

    What I can say is that the all glass path upgrade will allow for dome screens & ELB screens to be used rather than a bowl. I prefer external bowls myself but the company is here to serve as many niches at every price point as possible. Thats why we came here.

    Salutations Leiana,

    This seems reminescent of the Arizer table models but your Versa Infinity would be all glass with no electronics inside. Correct?

    [​IMG]

    It would be useful to make it very clear which of power or temperature is actually being controlled exaclty. The Herborizer has only 2 wires so i gather it's controlled by an electronic rheostat, what about the Versa Infinity? Is there going to be a 4-wires option with a temperature sensor?

    Great, then i'd humbly suggest taking advantage of all this glass to provide some memorable light shows where it matters most!...

    Good day, have fun!

    :peace:

    There will be a heater inside the glass unit. Nothing else.

    As of now, its only rheostat controlled. When we secure more venture capital we will implement temperature control.

    The vortex base will have an multi-color led and a remote to control it. (on, off, color change ect.) They are discussing remote control of the fan as well.

    The video is being edited at this moment so stay tuned.

    I hope you can post more. I prefer silicone to fiberglass every day of the week. In fact, I'd prefer THICK silicone over those fiberglass wires lol.

    Hi again Leiana,

    Thermostatic action once sounded better to me but sometimes simpler happens to be preferable, so the actual reason i'm asking is only because i believe it may hurt a customer's feelings to find out too late that it's one type while he tought he had the other. That's all. Briefly put i see nothing wrong with it, hence if your technical choices will truly benefit us then i'd say advertize them proudly!

    :D

    It makes sense. Being who i am i must admit i'd be more concerned about exposed glass though... How about a silicone skin floating on a matrix of dots to optimize insulation and also gain some mechanical protection for the glass under; where it's necessary only, so we can still enjoy the display?!...

    [​IMG]

    Well, you've been courageous enough to answer my post directly, as a result this makes me feel compelled to share another crazy idea of mine: what about integrating a Mist Maker puck (ref. FogBong) in that base somewhere? These come with plenty of ambience lights and the glass could be shaped to behave like a wave guide capable of illuminating our cannabic bowl, i suppose - with the benefit of providing just a tiny bit of moisturization!

    Hummm... I know. But it's Christmas time after all. Right? [​IMG]

    Have fun & joy during the Christmas days!

    Honestly the rheostat works just fine for now and many people find them less complicated which makes parts cheaper and when american made, more reliable.

    To answer your second question about the silicone, I dont think that will be a stock option due to the way it could make the vaporizer look externally. If anyone breaks the body from a fall, it wont be too expensive to replace it. ($40 plus shipping for glass replacement) The electronics are covered by warranty.

    To answer the third inquiry, you are dangerously close to what we have created called VibraVapor for the Infinity. Incorporating essential oils in the rear of the vaporizer path to create flavored air.



    Many people believe plug in vapes are over, but we dont believe that.

    Heres that video

    Hello there!

    As i pointed out, having a rheostat can be turned into a real advantage. Hence why not go bold about it!! Your heater element, on another hand... I wish there were an halogen-based option, because everything the V***s users wrote about (lately) simply confirmed my own sustained interest. M'well, for the time being, that is...

    [​IMG]

    Oh but you don't see it as "sexy" as i do (think of leather laces if you can't stand a silicone harness)!! [​IMG]

    Easy to say in a city like Toronto, but we don't all get to live in a large town. Even less a large town in USA. Also, somehow shattered glass doesn't appeal to some people; i dunno, broken glass isn't an happy image to me!

    [​IMG]

    I see. That's like great news so far!... I'll keep reading then. So, it isn't too crazy to think of the Herborizer as of a concurrent after all. Lets just hope the Versa Infinity won't commit the same mistake(s):

    [​IMG]

    As i recall the white "Y" stain (top-left) was the result of redeposited vaporized insulator material. But it's equally important to mention this incident wouldn't have been possible if the owner had followed the manufacturer's recommendations. Or maybe not...

    I already have a "Plan-B", with no main "driver" at the moment. In any case this is going to be a stimulating thread to follow.

    Good luck with this whole project!

    Congratulations. We are granting your wish for the halogen bulb. I love the productivity we are having here so far. Interchangeable heaters implemented into production so far:
    1. 60W Ceramic
    2. All glass path band heater
    3. 75W Halogen (glass & ceramic path)

    Removed from launch priority:
    Titanium nail

    Unfortunately 3 heaters is our maximum capacity for production at this time.

    Can anyone think of anything else? We are looking to focus on the base mods and possibly entertain some whacky ideas for kicks.

    Heaters 1 & 3 will be prioritized for January launch.

    2 new heater designs. The Halogen design is coated in silver to concentrate the light.
    [​IMG]


    ONE MORE QUESTION????
    Halogen option as of now the design can omit or include the bag blowing option. If we omit it we get a predominantly glass air path with a less than a centimeter of ceramic.

    If we include the air pass through, you will receive air the touches the same wire covers found on the original ceramic heating element.

    Blow bags or no bags?
    I prefer if all 3 can blow bags.
    Tough questions but we need answers.
