Hey guys, so there is a brand new Zues portable vaporizer that is about to hit the market. It's called the: Zues Arc There is pretty much no information about it on the net as I think Tvapes (formerly known as Toronto Vaporizers) decided to debut the unit in the Vape Lounge at the 2017 Lift Expo this year as TVape is the vape lounge sponsor for the event and was making quite a few sales with the try before you buy. Anyway, more about the Zues Arc. The model I saw was about the size of your inner hand in a loose fist and feels comfortable. It has that bias black sort of soft coating so it doesn't get slippery and etc. Though it also gets resin and other particles embedded over time so there is a plus and minus. But it also is less likely to slip from your hands. I personally have always thought that all portables should come with a wrist strap for added security. I have see professional blade smiths makes weaponry style cutting blades and they all have a leather wrist strap to help you get a secure grip and be able to easily get composed again and continue wielding the knife. Seems like a necessary but overlooked flaw. Plus if it isn't too big a neck strap is always handy when you go to expos and etc or hanging around different places so you don't forget anything, but also it's available right away if you need it. *Back to the Zues When I was hovering over the two units and their pedestals a man approached and inquired what I was looking for and what I am experience with now. I said I have the Volcano Mighty Medic, the Volcano Medic for home as well as the herbalAire which I prefer to my desktop Volcano Medic. I also sometimes just use the Mighty Medic at home as it works just as well as I could expect and is finely engineered and well thought out which is typical of the often thought of higher quality engineering that you get in Germany. I also read a claim where it was German engineered which I don't think is true. The only part that might be "German engineering" was a retooling of the Storz & Bickel designed cooling units for their portable line which channels and bends the air all sorts of ways much further cooling it before it hits your mouth. I have never tasted a smoother high temp dry vapour, as in without water filtration. So apparently the Zues Arc has their own cooling unit, but it was designed based off of and is quite similar to S&B portable cooling unit. The rep I was speaking with was so knowledgeable and we got into a really technical conversation about how vaporizers operate and the benefits of some features. He then revealed to me he was the engineer responsible for the creation of the Zues Arc and was there to promote it. He said I should expect similar, but probably not greater performance to the Mighty Medic I already have. He also mentioned their cooling unit used some gold in it to help to conduct away as much heat, as quickly as possible. It seems to have a good feel to it, if I was completely OCD about things I could have definitely tried it and would love to to broaden my horizons of what is out there. The engineer understood and also seemed to wish I could of tried it to give him some feedback on how it helps me as a medical patient. I suggested to him to design a cartridge like system similar to the one provided with the Mighty Medic. I explained this was la piece de resistance for medical users and just heavy users in general. As they go about their day and leave they houses it is so convenient to pack 8 cartridges that can be so easily loaded and discarded with less mess than just packing the unit yourself. In the 5-6 months I have owned my Mighty Medic I have never had to brush the heating chamber as the dosing capsules keep it so clean. He said he will look into it. So if Zues dosing capsules or cartridges come out it was a result of me inspiring the creator to try something new and different that has a potential market. I am such a fan of the dosing caps because I feel it brings us closer to broadened acceptance of cannabis use in general, but also as a medicine. Lots of people to medicate have to open their stinky (in a good way) jars to get some buds out, then find a place outdoors somewhere to grind and roll without everything blowing away and not to mention the public perception of someone in a park leaning over a magazine with a grinder, some papers and maybe tools like scissors or packing tools out that would scare your local neighbourhood watch into a frizzy. I order to open my Mighty Medic, cleanly take out he spent capsule and load a new one in and continue vaping all without anyone really knowing what your up to as the setup procedure is non traditional so it won't raise the same flags as this one. I'm not worried since I am legally licensed, but I am also courteous to the public outdoor space we have to share with others so I try not to impede their enjoyment in anyway.
