Vapman, the tiny vaporizer from Switzerland, is finally being released in North America this spring exclusively at TorontoVaporizer. The Vapman is made of the finest materials and components, with none other than the high quality craftsmanship the Swiss are well known for. This portable vape comes in two different styles: Vapman Basic ($89) and Vapman Complete ($129). Both styles are made of heat resistant, pear tree wood and boast a gold-plated copper heating chamber. The two differences of the Vapman Complete in contrast to the Vapman Basic are: 1) the mineral heat protection sheet around the heating chamber (offering added insulation and heat reflection) and 2) the Linseed polished wood finishing (offering longevity and durability).
Comparison of the Vapman Basic and Complete
The Vapman Complete goes through additional processing time as it is fine sanded, oiled with Linseed oil and then polished to perfection. It is this additional processing time that contributes to its durability. The Vapman Basic on the other hand boast a raw pear tree wood exterior and is not sanded or treated. As a result, the Vapman Basic offers a slightly different vapor flavor, since the taste is woodier. It is important to note that the wood around the heating chamber of the Vapman Basic will start to discolor naturally with time, as it does not have the mineral heat protection sheet. This is normal however, after the wood has blackened/darkened it will harden and stay stable from then onwards.
The fantastic insulating mineral found on the Vapman Complete is used in industrial and electronic systems, such as blast furnaces and critical wiring circuits. It is also a solid nontoxic mineral, so even at high temperatures, it does not release any chemicals. It can even withstand the high temperatures of molten glass and steel. The protection sheet also serves to shield the wooden area around the heating chamber that will be in proximity of the heat. This protection sheet is the product of Swiss research and development, ensuring it is the perfect material for this purpose.
The high quality materials used in the construction of the heating chamber in combination with the use of a torch lighter, is what produces smooth vapor. That being said, there is an added vapor quality benefit with the Vapman Complete. The mineral protection sheet actually adds an element of convection to the Vapour Quality. It is important to note that convection vaporizing is superior to conduction and is an element usually only found in premium vaporizers like the Volcano. The Vapman Basic is great and is still made of the highest quality materials, but if you are not on a tight budget, we would highly recommend the Vapman Complete. In a nutshell, it offers improved vapour quality and, increased longevity and durability as compared to the Vapman Basic. The Vapman Basic, however offers the best value for money.
