I have tried well over a 100 vaporizers here at VapeFuse and ended up using many of them over a longer period of time.
Some of them for a few weeks, others for a few months. As I was trying and testing new vapes I kept moving onto using others. During the years there has been one vape I kept sticking with. The DynaVap OmniVong I kept using among others all the time and keep doing it to this day.
I didn't use to like manual vapes initially, I thought electric vapes were more convenient and therefore superior to analog, manually heated vaporizers.
Do manually heated vaporizers produce tasting vapor?
They are more convenient for sure, however the real difference comes down to the taste of the vapor for me. I much prefer the taste of the vapor from a vape like the Sticky Brick Runt or DynaVap M to most if not all electric vapes.
Another thing for me is that manual devices last a lot longer and tend to build some kind of a bond or some sort of relationship with them over time. An electric vape for a regular user doesn't last longer than a few years max in general while a manual vape like a DynaVap can last for decades.
You'll need to replace o-rings every ones in a while. As you keep disassembling and reassembling your DynaVap for cleaning, your o-rings will worn out over time and become too loose.
Another consumable part of the DynaVap experience is the DynaCap. They are the patented stainless steel caps that you heat. The VapCap is designed in a way that it clicks when it reaches vaping temperature.
And then it clicks again as it cools down, indicating that it is time to fire up your butane torch again.
The Cap is an a huge part in the design of the DynaVap products. It all started with the good old Cap, however now DynaVap makes two other kind of caps. They introduced the Captive Cap with the launch of the DynaVap M 2020 and also created a Low Temp Captive Cap. In case you prefer to vaporize at a lower temp.
For more info on the Captive Cap, check out our DynaVap M 2020 review here.
These stainless steel caps are made in the USA and come with a 3 years manufacturer's warranty.
They are made out of thin metal sheeting though and can be damaged if you don't look after them. Warranty does not cover user error or abuse. If the you step on it, drop it or excessively overheat it, you can damage your VapCap.
I noticed that the VapCaps have a lifecycle. I noticed that some caps initially click at a lower temperature and as they are being used they click at higher and higher temperature. Eventually I find myself replacing the cap when my herbs get combusted even though I stop heating at the click.
I definitely don't use a cap for 3 years, more like 6 to 9 months or so, however I use them a lot.
So if you ever wondered how long a VapCap lasts, I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions or any experience to share with The Cap.
