**A powerless/manual dry herb vaporiser.
The team at DynaVap is made up of engineers, technologist and herbal enthusiasts (why are here no woman in your staff photo!!) and they proudly craft all their products in-house in the United States of America. They have one goal and that is to deliver what they feel are the best battery-free vaporising options available.
The DynaVap 2019 “M” is constructed from medical grade Stainless Steel and is a great entry level introduction to the world of DynaVap. This is a new and improved version of the 2018 “M”, with a multitude of new features.
- Serpentine air channels (on tip) for better airflow and heat exchange.
- Tactile interface at the end of stem so you know where to safely place your fingers.
- Redesigned touch, feel and look of the stem for better grip.
- Redefined and more pronounced air port.
- New “Rocker” design on opposite side to air port to help you locate air hole in dark.
At 92mm in length this is the ultimate in portable go anywhere vaping. A simple to use, unbreakable device that comes equipped with the signature heating cap that brings all the magic to this unique one of a kind vaporiser.
The first thing you will notice about any of the products that DynaVap produces is the exquisite craftsmanship and quality design. Extremely strong and durable pieces that can literally go with you anywhere. Simple to use, take apart as well as maintain. Clear your mind of all expectations, this is nothing like the dry herb vaping you may already be used to.
One of the biggest complaints that I encounter in regard to dry herb vaping is battery life, with even my most prestige units requiring a regular recharge. I personally have found this a little frustrating and have been eagerly anticipating the DynaVap. The only “power” that you will require will come in the form of Butane for your lighter. The DynaVap also boasts of a very fast heat up time (5-15 seconds dependant on lighter), especially in comparison to electronic dry herb vaporisers (30-90 seconds).
TIP: This is not the time to skimp out on a lighter. A standard lighter won’t cut it and will take a while (if ever) to adequately produce vapour. A Butane torch is your best bet for easy, quick heating. A single flame will work but a double or even triple flame will heat faster and more efficiently.
The stand out feature of all the DynaVap models is the unique method of heating to produce your vapour. From start to finish different to all other forms of herbal vaping. The magic all happens via the DynaVap cap. The cap comes standard with all available models and is an extremely important part so please don’t lose it!
To use: It may take you a few practice runs (can be done without herb placed inside) to get the hang of but you will quickly become a master. Correct usage is all about the following 3 points:
- How to heat
- When to stop heating
- When it is safe to reheat
Mastering the steps above will ensure you thoroughly enjoy your experience and won’t burn/combust your herb. Details below.
Remove the top cap to pack your herb. Pack however you like but a loose full pack is recommended. You may grind the herb (not too fine as may enter into unit itself via screen), roughly shred it or even place a whole nugget within. Replace the cap.
Hold the Dynavap in one hand (cap side up) and your Butane torch in the other. Slowly rotate your Dynavap whilst lighting the cap to ensure even heating. I would recommend holding the flame far enough away, so it is almost touching the cap.
TIP: You can control the temperature either by lighting closer to the top of the cap or closer to the cap’s base. Lower temperatures can be reached via heating of the top of the cap and higher temperature via heating the base of the cap. Don’t light the very end as you would a cigarette though, only the sides.
This is the crucial point, you will need to continue lighting till you hear an audible “click”, and yes you will hear it so be patient and wait! An internal thermostat detects the rising temperature and clicks when ready for use. I cannot stress how important this step is, inadequate/excessive heating will result in either no vapour or even worse – burnt herb!
TIP: Do not heat after hearing the click, place the lighter down. Always respect the click!! And now to confuse you – for a heavier hit it is permissible to heat for a second or 2 (maximum) post-click. Please only attempt this after you have mastered this device to avoid burning!
Don’t touch the cap. You may now inhale via the mouthpiece on the opposite end. Pretty obvious but please make sure you don’t place the hot cap side into your mouth, I can only imagine the pain. Vapour will be pretty light to start with and will build up over time. Slow and deep breaths.
TIP: You will find a carb hole half way down the device, cover the carb to start to initiate vapour flow. Release and the cover again till you get a good flow. Experiment with what works best for you.
Keep inhaling/pass it around until you once again hear the audible click, this time letting you know that you are now BELOW optimal temperature. You can safely reheat with your lighter once you hear the second click – but NOT before. If you start heating before the click you will effectively be burning your herb and wasting it. Severely burning your DynaVap may damage it too. If you don’t hear the click, simply wait a minute or so for cooling down to occur before reheating.
TIP: If you have burnt your herb and want to get rid of the horrible taste, your only option will be to thoroughly clean the unit and start again.
You will need to allow the cap to cool down before touching to repack your device. You can use the elongated portion of the cap to sweep out the old and then pack again with the new.
To clean: The DynaVap M comes apart into its various components for easy cleaning. The M comes apart into the following;
- Stainless Steel CCD – Circumferential Compression Diffuser (sits within tip)
Pull off top cap and gently shimmy out the tip. The condenser can also be slid out from within the midsection. To remove the CCD, you can insert the condenser into the smaller end of the tip and push the CCD gently out. 2 O-rings sit along the condenser, remove these before cleaning (don’t lose them).
Place the tip, midsection and condenser into a cleaning solution. A soak in a warm bath mixed with cleaning solution should do the trick. Rinse and allow to dry before reassembly. DynaWax (available in the “M” Starter pack) can be used to extend the life of your O-rings.
TIP: DynaVap does not recommend using Isopropyl Alcohol. It will not damage your device, but they advise that flammable liquids should be avoided.
To reassemble start by replacing the O-rings onto the condenser. The ever so slightly smaller one resides towards the centre whilst the larger one sits upon the very end (look for the grooved lines). You can now use the condenser to re-insert the CCD, this time via the larger side of the tip. Use the condenser to push it gently into place till you hear a snap.
Insert the condenser via the mouthpiece end ensuring that the outermost O-ring stays in place. Replace the tip and cap. You are now all clean and ready for use.
