Vivant Alternate - Loose Leaf Vaporizer

Released by Naked Vapour 27-6-2017 - UPDATED 2-10-2017 NEW Version

NB: Not for use with e-Liquids - Dry Herb Style Vapourizer only

 

 

What is the Vivant Alternate - Loose Leaf Vaporizer?

Firstly this is not an e-Cigarette, it does not use e-Liquid - only dry plant matter ie: Tobacco, Damaina or other legal herbs or botanicals.

It is a dry herb style vaporizer that uses conductive and convective heating methods to vaporize off plant essential oils, terpenes etc from the contents for inhalation.

It features a precise temperature control system to allow the user to dial in the sweet spot to vaporize. No smoke is created, only vapour.

Do you still see vapour on exhalation?

You may depending on the contents in the chamber and temperature used, but the vapour produced and exhaled will not be similar to the vapour produced from an e-Cigarette, or smoke produced from combustion - very light vapour if visible at all.

Naked Vapour offers this type of device as it does fit the harm reduction model and is a "Smoking Alternative".

This type of dry herb vapourizer can  be used to vapourize nicotine from tobacco and other elements from other types of dry herb matter, from Damiana to Lavender, see online guides for the best vapourization temps to suit - https://azarius.net/encyclopedia/77/Best_temperatures_for_vaporizing_herbs/

 

Please be sure you comply with your local laws and regulations as not all herbs listed will be legal in all countries - Naked Vapour ships internationally hence why the list below is not specific to New Zealand.

Due Dilligence - please be sure to research fully any herb you intend vapourize before actually doing so - some may have more powerful effects than other means of consumption/ingestion, for convenience a list of vapable herbs are listed below:

Maintenence

NB: This device my require more maintenence than an e-Cigarette - the mesh screens will eventually become clogged with plant matter and resins, oils etc - spare screens are supplied, screens can be cleaned by soaking in a 50/50 mix of isopropyl alcohol and distilled water - be sure to let completely dry before using again.

Alternatively the screens could also be "cleaned" with a very hot flame like that from a butane torch which will quickly turn the screens contents to ash that can be easily knocked off. How often you will need to clean the screen will be dependant on frequency of use and the plant matter you use. Increased airway path restriction over time is the key to understanding when you will need to clean.

First Usage Guide

  • Read the FULL manual before use - LINK to manual
  • Remove the top section (as per manual) and slide the battery cover off and install the battery and refit the cover.
  • We recommend you run a few heating cycles through the device before the first use with herbs - this allows any left over manufacturing residuals to vapourize or burn off.
  • Use the included grinder to grind up your contents and pack lightly into the bowl, the grinder has a hole in the middle that can be used to help fill your heating chamber.
  • Turn on the device with 5 clicks of the power button
  • Select your preferred vaping temperature use the up/down buttons (go all the way up through the temp settings to change between Fahrenheit or Celcius).
  • Press and hold the power button for 2 seconds to initiate the heating mode. The unit will beep to confirm and display Heat in the display.
  • Once at temperature, the unit will beep 3 times and start a countdown.
  • Breath in through the mouthpiece with a slow and steady draw - NB: Slow and steady - this will allow the heat to penetrate and release vapour, too stong a draw may cool the chamber and contents below vapourization temperatures.
  • As you vape the heating chamber contents you may notice a change in flavour and vapour production as the cycle progresses.
  • Once the countdown has finished the unit will stop heating.
  • If you still need to continue vaping, hold the power button down for 2 seconds to reset the timer and start a new cycle.
  • Once your done, press the power button 5 times within 2 seconds to turn the device off - if the deivce is still in a cycle, hold the power button for 2 seconds to cancel the heat cycle and then 5 clicks to turn off.
  • Charge via the micro USB port - use a suitably powered USB source - 1A or greater output (most cell phone chargers would suit).

 

Tips:

Stirring Tool - The unit has a green stirring tool located next to the heating chamber, when disposing of chamber contents after use, be sure the tool does not fall out by placing a fingertip over it when disposing of the contents.

Do not disassemble when the unit is hot, wait until the device has cooled to room temperature before any maintenence is performed.

Do not drop the device - sensitive electronic components inside.

Do not use damaged or under rated batteries with this device - 30A or greater discharge required.

 

Warranty: 90 days for manufacturing defects only, some parts (ie: mesh screens and seals) are user consumable items and will require periodic cleaning, maintenence and eventual replacement.
