What is induction heating and why is it the superior way of heating your DynaVap vaporizers?
By: Herbert M. Green
It’s no secret that I’m a huge DynaVap fan. In the first place because of the superior flavour this tiny pen vaporizer delivers. But, its versatility, portability and the fact it operates without the need for batteries is pretty damn cool too.
For the first couple of years, I really only used my trusty VapCap ‘M’ on-the-go. At home, I usually went for desktop vaporizers or battery-operated vapes. Mostly out of sheer laziness. Most other vapes I used at home had bigger bowls, so I didn’t have to refill them as often as a DynaVap vaporizer. That, and I could easily charge if needed or even have the device plugged in at all times.
That all changed with the introduction of induction heaters. Now, I pretty much use the VapCap exclusively. Bear with me and I’ll tell you why.
Okay, but how do induction heaters work and why is it better than an open flame?
Hold up a minute, what is this ‘induction heating’ you speak of? Good question. Induction heating is a flame-free, non-contact method of heating an object (usually metal) by pushing a high-frequency, alternating current through an electromagnet and letting that flow through a coil, thus generating heat. There’s a lot more technical mumbo-jumbo involved, so, if you really want to know the nitty-gritty, watch this video here, where George explains it better than I ever could.
What you should take away from all this is that induction heating is the best way to heat-up your DynaVap vaporizer. Why? Because it heats up your VapCap way faster and more evenly. Heat-up times with an induction heater drops from about 10 seconds down, using a jet-flame lighter, to about 4 to 6 seconds.
Plus, you have more control over the heating process in general, for those advanced vapers who want to go beyond the ‘click’. (as George demonstrates in the last few second of the video above)
Lastly, and this is the real game-changer in my book, is the fact that you can now do it all with just one hand. So, you don’t have put down your controller when you want to take a hit. Brilliant!
DynaTec induction heaters are a true gamechanger, for at home and on-the-go
Nowadays, my home setup consists of only two components; a DynaVap 2020 ‘M’ and an Apollo 2 Induction Heater, by DynaTec. This setup takes up less space and requires a lot fewer elements than with a conventional desktop vaporizer, like the Volcano Hybrid where I have a bulky device in front of me, and less clutter lying around like balloons and filling-chamber pieces.
When I leave the house I grab my DynaTec Orion (hey, what can I say, I’m a vape nerd). This truly portable induction heater is not much bigger than a smartphone and fits perfectly in my pocket. The only (small) downside of the Orion is that it does require battery management.
If you want the best of both worlds, you can always go for the Apollo 2 Rover, which is the portable, battery-operated version of the original Apollo 2. It might be a bit bulkier than the Orion, but you have the option to plug it in when you get back home and use it as a stationary induction heater while it charges for when you need to hit the road.
Keep on vaping all day long with DynaTec’s Orion portable induction heater
