Volta Vaporizers are now available. We have made several changes:
1) A replaceable mouthpiece screen has been added. This screen will prevent plant matter bits from being inhaled. These screens will cost $2 for 10 screens.
2) Mica insulators (3 pieces) have been added between the heating element and wood body. These insulators improve energy efficiency and almost completely eliminate wood charring.The mica pieces are designed for use at extreme high temperature and will not outgas or produce inhalable particles. These mica insulators are user replaceable and are cheap ($1 per set).
3) Cover is now made of bamboo, instead of glass (magnetic attachment mechanism is the same). This bamboo cover is essentially unbreakable and retains heat better than the glass (which increases battery life). All customers said the transparent glass was unnecessary anyway, because viewing the chamber is unnecessary.
Soon (1-2 months) we will have a re-designed LED battery indicator friendly to color-blind people. The new battery indicators will have two spaced-apart LEDs (red and green). When they are both ON, its time to remove the battery. This will be apparent to the colorblind. Also, colorblind people can remember which LED is red and which is green.
And, we dropped the price by $10, since we are no longer using glass windows.
What is the approximate usable capacity of the chamber? I would guess about .2g from the pictures, with the chamber about half full. Is that about right?
1. Are glass covers still available, separately or not? I have a strange desire to watch herbs roasting.
2. Does this version (version 1.1?) heat herbs to the same darkness with the same consistency as the preliminary version? Do the strips of mica affect this? One of the things that I'm attracted to in this vape is its ability to roast herbs to a dark color very quickly.

Still using my volta on nearly a daily basis. I like this little piece of wood a lot and the more I use it the more I like it.
I don't understand the silence in this thread as the Volta does Roar like a beast if you let it.
Hey Volta owners,
I recently aquired a Volta and I'm starting to get the hang of it. But I find the Mica strips a bit annoying when I want to quickly flick the metal conductor to clean the device. Is removing them (permanently) a big deal ? How bad is the scorching of the wood without them ?
