Ascent Vaporizer
    #660304 - 02/26/13 05:14 PM (3 years, 7 months ago)

Been wanting a portable vaporizer for quite a while, been doing a lot of re-search and watching a ton of reviews. It seems the vaporizer Da Vinci is coming out with will be the best one yet, the only downside I can come up with that is up for debate is the fact it will mainly use convection for heating, but as most portable vaporizers, it is a hybrid. Also one of the Da Vinci reps on the FC forum said one or a couple of the models will actually have real crocodile skin, not that I find that bothersome, but I'm sure some people will. IMO if everything works as promised the product will be sure to blow the PAX, previous Da Vinci, and other portable vapes out of the water.

Anyone excited, or looking to purchase it?

(Feel free to ask me questions, I may know the answer to them considering the amount of stuff I've read up on it)

Here are some photos:

Here's some more information put together from the Da Vinci rep. Info may vary with final product.

Glass on glass- the bowl is glass lined, and the glass straw (not pictured) runs directly from the glass bowl through the unit. I'll get some pictures of this feature up soon.

Dual mouthpiece-The dual mouthpiece allows for 2 options. Option 1: the user can utilize a retractable glass straw, making sharing and cleaning easy. Option 2: offers a more personal discreet experience by allowing the glass straw to remain inside the unit, still offering an all glass vapor path,by vaping directly through the mouth opening.

4 hour battery life- this unit contains 2 rechargeable REMOVABLE lithium ion batteries.

The Ascent has the ability to vaporize both herbs and oils, features digital temperature control and a cool new OLED display

Heat up time is around 45 seconds, and it will heat to 405F/207C. Thought about changing it to 430F/221C, but it just seems so unnecessary.

We really wanted to use real wood grain, but the heat and humidity was causing it to crack  Looks like the wood model will use a high tech printing, the black one is simply matte black aluminum. We are playing around with 2 more styles right now including blue and silver aluminum and wait for it.(peta may not be happy)........real croc skin!

For the connoisseurs of temperature control out there, the Ascent will have a function that allows the user to adjust the setting of vaporizer temperature automatically. For example, you set it to stay at 360F/182C for 3 mins, go up to 375F/190C for 2 mins and then to 380F/193C for 2 mins.

The exact measurements of the Ascent are: 4.47" (119.36mm) tall, 2.24" (56.85mm) across and 1.03" (26.04mm) wide.

Yes, the temperature is completely variable and you can set it to 100C if you'd like..although as you mentioned, not very effective. Drawing shouldn't effect the temperature too much, usually drops a few degrees, but nothing noticeable. Personally, I do not like the restricted draw. I see the value to produce think vapor clouds...but shouldn't your vape be able to do that without the restriction? Just my two sense, it will be a free flowing draw.

We will ship to Europe, as all of our products are 110-240v and will likely have these in our EU distributors hands a month or so after our US release. I know not all vaporizer companies do this..but I like to wait to have our CE certification before entering the market.

The chamber is about 30% bigger than that of the DV, so about 1.3g, although I do not recommend packing it too tight as it restricts the airflow. Same with the DV...I don't like it filled all the way. Not to mention that the bottom of the vape swivels out to expose the bowl and makes it easy to pack.

I am working on getting an external charger as I would too like to have extra batteries charged up for those 4 day hiking trips in Yellowstone. Extra batteries will be available, but I can't promise that the external charger will be ready by launch.

I've been meaning to develop a water pipe attachment, just haven't gotten there. I guess in theory, you can make just about any vape work with a water pipe. Hmm..on to working in an all glass adapter.

Regarding the materials, the bowl is a glass lined ceramic and yes the straw is retractable..no clicking though..wrong company. The straw is hugged by a tight silicone sleeve that also provides additional insulation for breakage. The little screen that you see on the bottom of the unit...we call it a grill (think cars), is where the airflow comes in from the bottom. Its made of 304 stainless.

In the center of the vape there is also a glass screen that will prevent most particulates from going though the air path, of course some people will opt to add another screen. Depends on preference.

Now regarding discreetness...if you push the straw completely into the body, it's very discreet. Well, if you walk down the street sucking on an electric shaver type of discreet.

Also, I don't know what I was thinking when I posted about conduction..I need to edit that post. We really try to focus on building convection vapes. A quick heat up time is great for some materials, but really lends to combustion not to mention an uneven roasting experience. So all in all, the Ascent is a convection vaporizer

We could have sped up the heat up time, but weren't happy with the overall experience when we did.
(Before anyone brings it up...yes there is some conduction, but the conduction vs convection debate deserves its own thread )
