The only thing I would change is somehow making the mouthpiece cap better shaped to fit into a 14mm so it can support itself hands free.
And what a great price... Kudos!
Hello... I'm a new user, and I'm a bit confused as to how those temps can be so high... The vaping temps for cannabis (for example) is 325º-430ºF. The Hopper IO temperature range is 356º to 446ºF. Combustion starts around 451ºF.Hi from Vivant, Green means 600℉，yellow means 625℉，red means 650℉.. And what materials do you want to know?

Could you clarify this please?
IDK, but Vivant could have the next big thing if they were to put a swappable battery in the v2 and revise or upgrade the materials in the air path & cap.Man forgot how small the battery is with this, is there a summary of what 2.0 will be with user replaceable batteries correct?
Thank you for that info, much appreciated!It's true. Not only are the reported temperatures higher than you might expect, but they're dependent on draw rate. Pull slower and incoming air cools it less and the heater gets hotter still while using the same power. The temperatures are only estimates of what is happening.
The key is this really is a convection vape, unlike many who claim to be or be 'hybrids' which are really conduction (heat enters the load by conduction). Here there is no physical connection between that 'very hot' oven and the load, conduction can't happen fast enough to heat the load enough to make useful vapor. Instead, air is drawn in and heated to MORE than 400F. MORE. It then enters the load as you hit where it heats the load (cooling off in the process). Once it cools to 400F or so it's done all the useful work it can and escapes 'up the spout' along with the vapor at that temperature.
It takes a bit of learning to control the transfer. Unlike typical vapes harder hitting draws more heat in and makes more vapor. Potentially too much. And there's no 'heat soak' advantage like in most vapes. Stop the draw and the heat transfer instantly stops with it.
If you've never used a real convection vape (like say VGs or TV) you're in for a treat. For fifty bucks you can find out if this truly different sort of vape is for you. Many of us are firm believers. But make up your own mind?
Regards to all.
Thank you for that info, much appreciated!
I guess it makes some sense from that perspective. As I'd mentioned, I use the Hopper IO, and it's a beast (so far), and is also pure convection. I like the GO for the microdosing aspect. IMO, it's a great convection vape at a great price. It's like "Hopper Lite", which suits me just fine.
I agree with your comparison, as it relates to convection principle.Hopper is the same sort of deal. Only more expensive and less reliable? Notice that both Hopper and Go have arbitrary heat settings, not specific temperatures in degrees?
I think this question is really subjective. Depends on you, the herb and so on. For some of us, a few hits per bowl seems 'right'. You'll have to make that call.Should a bong hit be limited to one per bowl? I just did one on medium heat and I combusted on the second hit.
I agree with OF that you need to spend a little more time dialing in technique. Maybe leave the water use aside for the moment. Go slow, on 'green', low heat. When you feel nice, warm vapor coming through, learn to shut the device off and ride that heat to it's end, or, for an extra long draw, you can just pulse it on again for a bit.I’m finding it way to easy to combust with this thing.
i stopped having issues with that and the screen coming off when i stopped overpacking (back when i still had this device)I agree with OF that you need to spend a little more time dialing in technique.

Don't count on its own regulation to do it all. In this way it is similar to, but not as difficult to master, as the unregulated vapes (Milaana, etc.). You have to exert some control/restraint and back off the power at some point, unless you really like black abv and crappy taste...
Some say over-packing can also lead to near-combustion...I'm not so sure on that one.
