    Really just having some fun at Bud's expense...if you don't know what I'm referring to, look at the first 15 seconds or so of his FF2 full review. I love it, he looked soooo baked. LOL

    No, really, THIS is the VapCap OG, a whopping $30...well, $40 as I bought the four jet lighter from them also:
    lwjreyo4ipoc525l.jpeg

    I bought one of those $10 pen cases off of Amazon (like the one I use for my GH) and here's my traveling kit:
    13f1hr8h1uejlyh2.jpeg

    This is what the little chamber, with its glass screen, look like (sorry, kind of a crappy pic)
    cqwoc9w3948aungo.jpeg

    And finally, my VapCap, in the Delta 3D Studio's GH stand, waiting to be loaded (the stand ain't a great fit but it work. It works perfectly for Galaxy and Hynos pens also and you don't need a smooth surface to suction it to like the silicone ones), and you can see the cap which contains the clicker and seems to operate like a bit of a heat sink.
    n5q2tfu5irloa7oj.jpeg

    So I get this puppy in the mail a few days ago from this terrific guy named George who basically is VapCap. I read the instructions carefully including the part where TWICE it says in clear English that the new user should heat up the vape a couple of times empty so as to know what to expect when it clicks. I promptly ignored that (you should have seen me trying to assemble x-mas toys...really pitiful LOL) and continued heating for a bit wondering if that was the click so of course I combusted my first load. Tasted like crap tell the truth.

    I have not combusted since and that ain't that hard. Heat until you hear the click, hang in for another second pretty much at the most if you need it stronger, and then draw. It has a carb hole in the body that seems more useful to provide oxygen to the user during the LSD than anything else. I found it very effective to get vapor going (you can see it via the glass condenser tube in the glass body) and then just feather the carb hole a bit as I'm drawing in. Basically, draw hard against the resistance and feather the carb hole...it really didn't take any learning curve to get this thing cooking.

    So far, my experience has generally been as below:
    (NOTE: each draw requires reheating of the cap until it clicks which also means that you have to wait after a draw for the cap to click on the cool down side...but sometimes I got the cool down click at the end of my draw or a handful of seconds after...not an issue at all).

    • First draw is the best taste I personally have had from any dry herb vaporizer (though my experience base is not that large). Beautiful botanical flavor and thin but definitely visible vapor.
    • Second draw is the money shot. Thick vapor with good effect but has not made me cough yet at all.
    • Third draw is worth it to finish up but is not as thick as second
    • I did a fourth draw once and its not worth it. Crappy taste, not much vapor, and AVB was very dark brown.

    My AVB comes out even dark tan and compares very favorably with with my Volcano AVB.

    I forgot to weigh up a load size but will do so. Its VERY small (that's a good thing for this kind of unit, I think). Also, I have run it with a 1/2 - 3/4 load and it worked perfectly fine (and that go me down to two draws as this is a tiny amount)

    I have used hand torn nugs that were not let out to dry (patience my ass LOL) and it worked but take draw 1 above and times it by two and move everything back one. First draw was to dry it out, apparently, then the normal sequence of three draws.

    I have also used my fine grind and I don't have to go over again how anal I am about drying and fine grinding my herb. The manual says to not use fine grind as it may get past the screen. I had no such experience at all with very finely ground and dry Blue Dream. I have some really old stuff that's almost dust that I plan to try to use to make some butter. I would not use that. But anything bigger than dust seems to work. I'm sure you could figure out how to make a pollen sandwich with herb but frankly this is an herb hit-n-run so why try to stretch its use case too far??

    I have used medium grind from an SC Shredder and that seems to be the happy middle so far but my experience is still limited.

    I'm happy as a clam with this little tool. A true one-hitter, digger/bat type vape that works. They even make a dugout for it (not my thing but). I'm probably going to buy a Ti Glass where they chamber is a piece of Ti which provides a better heat sink.

    Some guys say they are using it with glass and indeed they make an adapter but I just don't see the need at all (and I do like water tools).

    This is my story and I'm sticking to it.

    I agree, it's cool and all that to have accessories... but for what the VapCap is - I think it'd be overkill lol. Great review man!

    Got to read those instructions and listen for the click! LOL Have run about 6-7 loads through it and haven't combusted since the first time which was clearly operator error.

    Well, I'm still LOVING my VapCap(s).

    Below are the three that I currently own:

    t9nv5kde3mglhd81.jpeg

    In the middle is the first OG (original...yeah?), to the left side is the Ti Woody, and on the right is a new OG I bought that has the new condenser shape (blunt end versus the eye dropper shape of first gen).

    heheh...I know it reminded Bud of a crack pipe (that boy is too damn young to remember crack! LOL) but all kidding aside, the OG was the best $30 I ever spent on a vape product (OGs are now up to $35...whoa, watch out there Martha!)

    These devices work brilliantly and easily. I don't understand how Bud combusted 6 ot 7 times with them. I did it the first time I used one because I didn't follow the directions and therefore didn't know what the click sounded like. A reminder, you heat the little metal pen cap looking thing and when you here a "click" you stop and draw. NO combustion possible unless you just don't stop at the click.

    This thing will extract the goodness out of .05 g max load as well as anything I have come across. A .05 g load gets me three draws (and the last is just clean up) and a really good buzz. Two loads as my bedtime sleep aid and I'm off to lala land.

    NOTE: you can use any source of heat that you want...just may take longer. The recommended heat source is a 3 or 4 flame cigar torch lighter. Heat up to click is in about 3 seconds. But, if you want to pull a burning branch out of the camp fire, you can use that too!

    DnynaVap is a small outfit run by a really cool guy named George. If you peruse his site, you will see that in addition to making these out of some really cool wood, he is also making the full Ti Omni and has set up an artist ecosystem so craftsmen can make artistic vapcap parts and accessories. For example, I'm in touch with a guy out in Seattle who is working on making blue cobalt glass bodies and I want one.

    But for the most part, I'm really into this vape for its performance. I'm just function oriented and from that perspective this vape is dynamite. Cheap, portable, works fabulously.

    Now, there are a lot of owners taking pictures of their various customized VapCaps in various situations. Pretty soon its going to be like a forum on Barbie Dolls where the VapCaps owners show off pictures of their units all dressed up (oh, dang...that is already happening on another site LOL). Viva la difference. 8-)

    I think about some recently released vapes, that tout all of the high tech and advanced materials used, but which were dropping like flies or were just not functioning well for a lot of people. I'll say it again....$35 (not $350) and works like a charm every time.

    Check out George's site....you might like having one of these.

    Decided to give a butane a try and got my heart now set on a Ti Vong in the upcoming sale (20% off and free shipping). This is to @Baron23 have you used any of your VapCaps without a mouthpiece ? as the Ti Vong looks like it could easily be used without one. Also any tips would be handy, thanks :)
  • Baron23

    HI! hehehe...joining the crack pipe smokers, I see. LOL

    I have not use a Vong Vapcap but my Ti Woody doesn't have a mouthpiece on it. Its a double crown so there is a little band of metal capping the wood at both ends.

    To me, the wood mouthpieces look like an add on just tacked on the end.

    I also like that my Ti Woody without MP fits into Delta 3D Studio's medium Nearly Universal Silicone to Glass Adapter (SonG) very nicely for putting it through glass.

    As far as the VonG goes...I dont' see any reason for a MP. Just suck on the Vong part or get a Ti Woody and an adapter.

    Hope you enjoy it as much as I have mine.

    Cheers

    Tomorrow my (first..?) VapCap ships from that nice city called Amsterdam. I feel like a steampunk boy waiting for his new toy.

    Don't really know where this guy put his 3 Grasshoppers...but this video shows a minuscule, but powerful device...

    Really intrigued.
  • Baron23

    A very small tip...no need to push a load into the chamber as the fella in the video did, just cover the carb hole up and suck the load in. Don't tamp, just suck the load of ground herb in and the pack is about perfect.

    It also works pretty well with small hand torn pieces of bud.

    Enjoy and come back and let us know how it worked out for you.

    Remember: Respect the Click >:)

    It's working sooo good!

    First attempt:
    First pull: nearly nothing
    Second: wonderful
    Third: tasty
    Fourth: close to combustion

    Taste is fantastic. The sweetest and intense I've ever experimented. How I like simple things that get the job done... and this little thing does it with class.

    Hits like a slingshot.

    So glad you like it!! I did receive the new in-house made Ti tip for my Woody and it solved the draw resistance issue I had with mine. However, I still like the OG's best. The glass chamber takes a bit longer to heat but also holds the heat longer. I'm just one with my OGs while I like my Ti Woody.

    Course it doesn't hurt that the OG was the best whopping $35 I have spent in quite some time.

    Remember, respect the click. Combusting in one is an unpleasant surprise, I have found :-! :-!
  • Ander

    Oh yeah.

    And no more than 3 rounds per charge...
  • Baron23

    Yeah, I pretty much get three draws max from a load. When I first got my OG, the first heat cycle/draw was all flavor and light visible vapor. The 2nd was the money shot (heavy thick vapor), and the 3rd was clean up....yeah, enough to chase but not much left.

    With my original OG, I think my cap has changed a bit, or they break in with use, whatever but I will quite often get a good cloud on 1st and 2nd hit now and there isn't really much reason for a 3rd draw.

    I have taken up the habit of drawing again after a 'real' draw and before heating again. This cools the unit down a bit quicker (get that cool down click) and I actually think there is still some level of conduction going on there. I particularly do this on first or second draw where there is still flavor to be had, but I'm probably just mind screwing myself over this (no OCD characteristics here, by golly! LOL)

    Lot of people complain about their OGs because they broke the glass. I don't know what to say about this. They are cheap, I have been using one OG for 6 months now maybe, and the chamber only has a small crack in it from removing/reinserting the CCD (but its still usable and I keep vaping with it!!). Now, when I drop the body in ISO for cleaning, I just leave the CCD installed. If I drop one and break it, for $35 I will get another. What can it cost me, $70 year? Buy a $400 vape with an expected five year life span (being very generous here), and that's $80/year.

    All good, so glad you are liking it. I don't have access to traditional hashish but you are in the Netherlands maybe?? Do you have access to traditional hashish? People are wrapping the hash in some hemp fiber and vaping it, some have put CCDs or other screens/liquid pads on top/bottom of concentrate and hashish loads and have loved it. I have only used my VC's for herb (well, with a bit of pollen sprinkled in from time to time).

    Cheers

    All this talk about the vapcap got me itching for one, how often do you have to replace the CCD's? As for the stashbox, is the herb chamber deeper if you don't get the one one with the concentrates holder?
  • Baron23

    The CCDs are made of Ti and I haven't seen any wear or tear on them.

    They now also sell SS CCDs.

    Can't answer question about the VC dugout as I don't have one.

    Order's been placed! Thanks for all the helpful tips guys, can't wait to get get it and try it out. I went frugal and and didn't get the stashbox, gonna invest that $50 on a better grinder instead.
