Every one of these China pen vapes that I tried (herbstick eco, xmax v2, imag+, FM v3 Air) all not only smelled toxic, but when I tried to run multiple burnoffs, they ALL off-gassed visible mystery vapors from oils or plastics or chemicals or whatever. Even after a dozen burn offs, in a still room, if you shined a flashlight/torch on them, you could see the toxic vapors coming off.
We all switched to vaping for the health benefits. IMO, people would be better off combusting than using these shadily manufactured China vapes off-gassing toxic fumes.
That's just one mans experience and opinion though.....take it for what its worth.
i Have just purchased the Xmax v3 pro 5 days ago and has/had horrible plastic chemical smell
and I also turned off the light and shone a torch to see if I could see and visible smoke and it did have a few slightly wispy vapours coming off from oven and vents,the lid was off
i had read about doing a burn off so did this several times at 428f with the lid off
the smell MAY have diminished a little but I still didn’t trust it but couldn’t resist trying out my new toy so I did some on demand hits @356f for approx 10 count from the beginning of the button press
the load was an unground piece of a nug of st daw approx 0.03 of a g and it was surprisingly strong in effect compared to what I would get from the vapcap
vapcap has no unpleasant taste of its own and the vapour flavour is far superior so far but one cannot dial it in like the on demand temp specific ness of the v3
anyway going back to session mode and 428f and up to full temp again the vents were still smelling unpleasant so since then I have done at least FORTY yes 40 plus 4 min burn offs and the smell has lowered considerably but still there to my dissatisfaction
it’s a shame because at 89gbp it’s quite a low price but if it tasted as good as the dynavap with no unpleasing dodgy taste of its own I think it would be worth maybe twice that
so I’ll give it one or two more tries and it may get sent back for replacement or refund
regards and vape healthy x
