DynaVap M Review
The DynaVap M from Colorado’s DynaVap was released in 2018. It is 9.2 cm in length and features a stainless-steel body and mouthpiece. It’s based on the original VapCap M, having the same dimensions and like all of DynaVap’s VapCap products. It comes with a temperature indicating cap. The stainless-steel body is covered in knurling, providing additional grip. The DynaVap M is compatible with a number of add-ons from the manufacturer including condensers, stems, bodies and caps so you can customize your own look and feel for this product. The company sells a cleaning kit separately.
The DynaVap M sells for $60 USD making it a relatively inexpensive vaporizing pen. The company promises discreet shipping of its product.
The chamber in the DynaVap M is quite small so it doesn’t produce great clouds of vapour. The aim of this product is portability and simplicity, not cloud production.
The chamber holds about 0.1 gram of material, which is not a lot. It is the perfect amount though for those that are into micro-dosing. You will still get a decent draw on this vaporizer. The draw on the DynaVap M is smoother than most combustion vaporizers.
The DynaVap M has a medical grade stainless steel body and mouthpiece. You can replace the body or mouthpiece with other materials (like wood, glass and titanium) with a separate purchase. Having stainless steel on the basic model makes the vaporizer easier to clean and improves user experience. The knurling on the body of the vaporizer was excellent in our review, providing for superior grip and handling. Overall the material quality on the basic vaporizer is excellent for the price.
Aesthetic and Feel
This is a nice-looking vaporizer, with long, sleek lines on a very small product. Its feel is pretty comfortable in the hand and it’s small enough that it’s comfortable to carry in a pocket.
This is a very portable little vaporizer pen. It’s small and can be carried in a pocket. Other than the cleaning kit, which you can carry in a small bag or container, and a lighter you don’t need any special equipment to use it. Pick it up, pocket it and you are ready to go. In our review, portability for this product is excellent.
The small size of the DynaVap M makes it very discreet for use almost anywhere. It fits into the palm of most adults’ hands and can be easily tucked into a pocket for carrying on the go. However, this is still a vaporizing pipe. You need to use it with an open flame which can sometimes make it look like you are using a pipe built for other reasons. Not the most discreet when it comes right down to use.
Ease of Use
This vaporizer pen is easy to use, take apart and clean.
The clicking heat indicator in the cap makes this manual vaporizing pen really easy to use. When the chamber hits the right temperature, a clicking noise is heard and it is time to draw. When the chamber cools, it clicks again, letting you know you will need more heat before drawing more vapour.
If you are not paying attention to the clicking sound, there is a pretty good chance of overheating and burning your material, which ruins the smooth vapour quality. The same problem happens if you heat up the chamber again without hearing the cooling click. Still, the temperature indicator is better than having no indicator at all and will stop your material from being scorched or burned more often.
This vapourizer also heats up quicker than electronic vaporizers. Depending on the heat source you can be ready to draw down vapour in between 5 and 15 seconds, compared to 30 seconds or more for electronic models.
Finally, because of the manual nature of this pen, you do not have to be so concerned about the grind on your material. This unit can handle a very fine, fine or even medium grind without losing function or getting “gummed” up. Thorough cleaning is recommended though to prevent the build-up of resins and keep the unit in good condition.
DYNAVAP has succeeded creating a sunning looking battery free vape. Its super portable, reliable and the Herbalize Team are all very impressed !
