Like a fine Swiss watch it emulates, the Vapman vaporizer represents one of the highest-quality vaporizers on the market today. Its sleek design and intricate Swiss engineering sets it apart from a lot of the other vaporizers I have tried in the past.
One of the things I liked best about the Vapman is that it is hand-crafted in Bienne, the same city where the world’s finest Swiss watches are made. And you can see the craftsmanship that went into this vape in its durable construction and its diminutive size. It packs a lot into a little bit of space.
When your first look at the Vapman vape in its storage container, you notice that it resembles a tiny egg that has had its bottom squared off, but in reality, this little egg looking thingy is the Swiss watch of vaporizers on the market today.
Here’s my Vapman review.
How It Works
Here’s a quick Vapman video to give you an inside look at how this little dude works:
It Comes Down to 2 Parts
The Vapman is basically two different pieces that fit together perfectly.
1: The Mouthpiece – First is the mouthpiece, which is held in place with springs. All you have to do is simply twist it to remove it so you can place your favorite herbal material into the gold-plated copper pan.
Then all you do is reattach the mouthpiece and fire up the opposite end of the pan with your torch.
2: The Handle Piece – The second part is the handle piece. A thin layer of mica protects the handle ring from getting too hot as you are firing up.
This handheld vape has a special feature not found on most other vapes: The ability to control vapor quality and airflow manually.
It has these three really cool gold-plated air nozzles that you can use to control the air flow and flavor of your herb. That’s one of those little details that make this particular really stand out, in my opinion.
And because it’s so tiny, it can be easily carried with you in your pocket practically anywhere. Its small shape makes it easy to keep hidden if you want. But while it is tiny, the Vapman delivers a powerful punch so you can enjoy a full-flavored vape experience every time.
It’s so small, I honestly sometimes forget that I even had it with me! But don’t let the small size fool you. This vape provides as much, if not more, vape quality than other vaporizers that are much larger.
This little guy is butane powered so no batteries here.
I would definitely recommend using the torch rather than a lighter because given the vape’s design, it would take a long time to heat up using a normal lighter.
Plus, the torch gives you a cleaner, faster burn so you can fire up faster. If I ever use a butane powered vape, I will always use a torch over a lighter – I waived adios to lighters a long long time ago when they kept getting stolen.
I can’t tell from its design whether the Vapman uses conduction heating, convection heating, or both. Because of its intricate Swiss design, I’m betting that it’s some sort of newly developed hybrid between the two which is awesome.
When I use it, it takes about 10 seconds to heat up to the proper temperature for your first draw. But after you heat it up once, the second and subsequent draws are a lot faster.
What’s In the Box
The Vapman comes with a few things.
Here’s a quick list:
- Heating “Pan”
- Handle Ring
- Body (i.e. the case)
- Instruction Manual
One of the best things I liked was the airtight carrying case to protect it from being damaged and to help protect your clothes and pockets from smelling “funky”. The egg shaped case comes in a variety of colors, including Ocean Blue, Yellow, Gold, Moss Green and Bordeaux Red.
How to Take Care of It
Keeping this little guy clean is really easy.
Of course, you need to scrape out your heating pan once in a while. I just dab a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol in there once every couple of weeks and I’ve had no problems.
There aren’t a lot of moving parts so it will last a long, long time even if you don’t always handle it with care.
One of the best things about this vape is that it is fully protected by a manufacturer’s warranty. If anything is faulty or defective, they will replace or repair your unit free of charge for up to one year from the date of purchase. They will even mail you replacement parts for free if there is something wrong with your vape.
Even if you somehow break it yourself (which is actually kinda hard), Vapman will repair your unit for you at a reasonable price.
Final Thoughts and Pro Tips
The Vapman is a pretty good bargain clocking in between $90 for the Basic model and $130 for the Complete package which comes with a little bit more.
Yet given its high-quality design, Swiss engineering and durability, the Vapman is a good investment in the long-term both because you can get a long life out of it and because of the protection the manufacturer gives it with its one-year warranty.
Truth told, I will usually lose a vape before I will break it, but since the Vapman comes with the hard carrying case, that’s not a likely possibility either.
Another thing I liked about it is that this vape fit naturally into my hand and almost felt like an extension of myself (classic Swiss engineering, man). You’ll find that a lot of other vapes are kind of pain in the ass when you’re trying to carry them around, so having this for me was a plus for sure.
In my opinion, if you are looking for a high-quality vaporizer that you plan on using for a long time, then the Vapman is an awesome pick.
