I have to admit, I had a slight bias against non battery vaporizers. We used to make these ourselves when I was a teenager and it was a fairly easy thing to do so I always wondered why I would part with upwards of £50 to pay for one.

Well, the same friends I would build vaporizers with as a teenager are now telling me that anything that the guys at Dynavap are the real deal and well worth its price tag due to the quality materials used, performance and ease of use so I thought I’d give it a try…

Three things I like about the Dynavap VapCap

✔️ Excellent, powerful hits.

The VapCap implements hybrid heating which means you’ll benefit from both convection and conduction.

Vapour production was almost instantaneous. I used a little butane torch and was inhaling sweet tasting vapour within 5 seconds but even with a typical lighter the vapcap reaching vaping temperature in under 15 seconds, a performance that puts many an electric vaporizer to shame

The oven is pretty tiny and just holds around 0.1 grams of cannabis. This may not sound like a lot but I find the VapCap oven produces so much vapour you’ll feel the effects way more than usual.

Holds 0.1 grams of herbs which doesn’t sound like a lot but it’s more than enough due to the vaporizers immense vapor production

✔️ It’s so intuitive to use

The VapCap is hands down the easiest vaporizer I have ever had the pleasure of using. The ‘cap’ which gives the vaporizer its name is really simple but was obviously born of a spark of genius.

The main disadvantage manual vaporizers have over electrical ones is the ability to effectivly manage temperature and vapour production withouht causing the oven to get to hot and combust you weed.

This is not a prolem with the vap cap . When you apply the flame, the oven will begin to heat up. Once it reaches its optimum temperature it’ll click letting you know to stop applying heat and that your herbs are ready to be vaped.

Once the ovens temperature drops below optimal vaping again it’ll click again signaling that its time to reapply the heat.

Follow the clicks and you’ll have maximum vapour production with zero combustion!

✔️ Maintenance is almost non-existant

Its simplicity also makes it super easy to clean. The Dynavap disassembles into five metal pieces and five silicone O-rings for easy cleaning. Even better, there are no hidden spots for gunk to build up once everything is taken apart, which is always a nice touch. You can soak the metal pieces in ISO, and wash the O-rings in soap and water.

Three things I would change about the Dynavap VapCap

❌ It could taste better

The big thick clouds produced when exhaling from the VapCap are exhilerating but they taste good rather than great. By no means do they taste bad, it just isn’t as nuanced when compared to one of my quality electronic vaporizers.

If you prioritise big clouds, I wouldn’t let this put you off though. You’ll still taste your herb better when compared to smoking it.

❌ It can be a bit tiresome to use

To get the most out of the Dynavap VapCap, you’re going to have to use a proper butane torch rather than a lighter. For me personally, it’s a bit tiresome having to have a bulky torch stretching my pockets all day. An alternative could be to use a small lighter but then it is slower and less powerful. An advantage of a manual vaporizer is supposed to be speed and power!

So, does the Dynavap Vapcap produce hits as well as a electric vaporizer?

I’m a convert! I was wrong to turn my nose up at non-electric vaporizers. They have certainly come a long way since the days of building them ourselves in my parents’ garage and it appears that the Dynavap range of vaporizers is at the top of the pile!

If you’re looking for cleaner hits that provides you with parts of ‘the ritual’ associated with smoking, I don’t think you can go far wrong with anything in the Dynavap range; these guys clearly know what they’re doing!
