I would check the interior of your cap visually. If you see a lot of crud in there, you may have overpacked your oven. Use your solvent of choice on a swab (do not submerge it) to clean it up and then test with an empty oven.
I expect eventually they will suffer from metal fatigue and crack, then no more clicky clicky. Consider it a badge of honor or achievement.I wonder if there is a lifespan to these and maybe they just stop clicking after so much use. That's the only thing I can think of. I've had it for years and use it every day, so its been heated thousands of times.
That does sound like a legitimate failure. I would try reaching out to Dynavap directly. If you do, let us know how they respond.Yeah, I looked in the cap and its clean, no crud build up. I also used a poker to slightly rotate to clicker disc to see if there was anything on the top side making it stick. I tried it multiple times with an empty oven too. It just decided to not click anymore I guess.

This is what happens eventually to all my caps. If you look close enough down the thing there is a faint crack in the disc… so no more clicks.I expect eventually they will suffer from metal fatigue and crack, then no more clicky clicky. Consider it a badge of honor or achievement.

Pretty much yeah, I’ve prob got 4 caps here with cracks and maybe thrown a couple more.All of them?
I've only ever owned 1 cap, had it since late 2016, and this hasn't happened. It works just like it did on day 1. Knock on wood of course.
Could be… I’m generally torch only. I have an IH but use a torch most of the time.I wonder if there is a torch/IH connection with cracked disks. The only cracked disks I've seen are from bad entexchange purchases. They all showed signs of torching. I don't torch and my '18 cap clicks like new. This one gets a lot of use.
Yes.Should I get a wand? Using a M... Have read back a bit and the general consensus is the wand works well? any tips or tricks that I need to know when using it with an M? Do I just hold it in the hole and wait for the click? Are there temp settings? what is optimal temp range?
Very cool, had not seen that insert. Thanks so much for the response.Yes.
It does work very well with the Skullcandy insert on Etsy. With the insert you can just set it in if you like, I usually try to hold it centered.
The temperature settings don't really do temps, they do timing. Set it to the lowest timing and it will heat the same as higher "temps", but hopefully it will time out before you burn it down if you forget and leave it in there.
Awesome story! I can't resist, of course....Hey FC! It’s been quite a while since my last post here but I never stopped lurking. My husband and I decided to get ourselves some Dynavaps during the Black Friday sales. He ordered an ‘M’ and the Ispire Wand & insert from Dynavap. Came with a free DynaStash. I ordered a Ti Tip, Low Temp Cap and the Rover Induction Heater from Planet of the Vape. Right after ordered a LittleFinger GonG adapter on eBay. That would be my home setup. With a $10 e-gift card they gave me for buying the Rover I caught the end of their Black Friday sale and ordered the Ti XL condenser and the Ti Spinning Mouthpiece. Went back on eBay and ordered a custom Ti stem. Bootlegged my way to a titanium Dynavap with low temp cap for $104! That was my plan for my on-the-go setup.
He loves the ‘M’/stainless steel- it makes some big ol’ clouds and he likes it like that. It took me a little while longer to warm up to my own setup but once I got thru the learning curve I have no regrets. The Low Temp cap is perfection- when I hit it dry I fully respect the click. When hitting through water I heat it a few seconds after the click. Works like a charm.
BOWL SIZE/HERB CONSERVATION:
It wouldn’t be a proper vape review if I didn’t mention the tiny bowl loads, and the Dynavap doesn’t disappoint. I set my screen to the half-bowl size the day I got it and haven’t looked back. I love those first couple of flavorful hit so needing to load the bowl more often is totally fine by me.
Love the Rover, he got the ispire wand and insert. They both work great, he’s jealous my battery lasts so long and i’m jealous that the wand charges via USB C and that the batteries are user-swappable. The induction heaters are where I found a slight flaw in my chosen setup- the Ti Tip and Low Temp cap cool down so fast that there’s not much residual heat left in the cap for subsequent heat ups. So my 5 or 6 titanium heat-ups compared to his 2 or 3 stainless heat-ups drains the Rover battery sooner than I planned. We travel quite a bit so my instinct was to get the portable heater but I just started working from home right before I bought it, so in hindsight I could have gotten the “desktop” Apollo until I actually NEEDED something portable.
While the LittleFinger GonG adapter is an awesome budget setup, I quickly understood why the Dynavap VonG exists. Using the GonG gives you that thick milkshake pull, which is great for some folks but I am not particularly a cloud chaser, so it is a little exhausting to use all of the time. For me, having any sort of control over the airflow would make this setup perfection.
Eventually my Ti stem arrived from the UK and while it looks similar and very cool, it is definitely not the one that I ordered. I chose one that was a standard stem size and this one is long enough to fit the XL condenser without the mouthpiece. He was nice enough to drill a carb hole in it upon request. It took over a month to get here and I got it for a great price so i’m not sending it back but it I bought that Ti spinning mouthpiece so I’m using it dammit! There is a pretty significant gap between the bottom of the tip and the top of the condenser, but it cools down like a boss and I don’t cough when I hit it dry so I can’t complain. It’s just sooooo loooong.
Our Current Collection:
We are very quickly understanding why people have so many Dynavaps- I just want them all over our house. In the time to took for the Ti stem to arrive we started turning our own wood stems. He’s got big hands and wanted a stem that’s a little more beefy. I wanted a bootleg VonG. I think we’ve finally both turned a couple that we’d like to keep for our own collection but in the journey to our favorite designs we turned quite a few stems to get there. We sanded and polished a few of them and threw them up on Etsy if anyone is interested. It would only go to fund our Dynavap addiction Our shop name is KansasClones.
Thank you everyone for all the reviews before this. I know not everyone is here for the longer reviews but those are what help me the most so hopefully I can help out the next person. It’s been 15ish years of vaporizer research and purchasing and FC has never let me down. This community is dope and thank you for staying that way
