DynaVap has been around for a few years now and is well known for their vaporizers that do not use batteries, but instead external heat from a butane torch. DynaVap has been growing very quickly and is becoming one of the top names in vaporizers.
What’s in the box?
Inside the box was the titanium tip, a standard cap, the spinning mouthpiece, the NonaVonG stem, and a tube to store it in. This is all you need to properly use the vaporizer.
How do you use it?
First, you take the cap off and load some ground material in the heating chamber. It should be very loose and not tightly packed to ensure that you are getting the most out of your material. If it’s tightly packed then the air can’t flow properly and you will waste some material.
After it’s loaded you put the cap on and start heating it. The best way to heat it seems to be slowly rotating the NonaVonG and holding the cap just above the inner cone of the torch flame. You can affect the heat by changing how close to the tip of the cap you heat. Holding the flame near the tip of the cap will give you a lower temperature than heating it near the middle or base of the cap.
After the cap reaches the proper temperature you will hear the iconic click. You will hear 1 or 2 clicks and then you will know it’s ready to hit. Once it’s ready I cover the carb and inhale, then near the end of my hit I release the carb and continue to inhale a bit more.
After your hit, you should leave it for a few seconds to cool down. As it cools you will hear the cap click again to let you know it’s cooled off enough and you are able to heat it up again.
Cleaning is also made simple since the whole thing comes apart and allows you to get at all the nooks and crannies. You can take apart the NonaVonG and clean the metal pieces with
How well does it work?
The titanium tip on the NonaVonG also seems to have better heating properties and has better airflow than
It is an extremely efficient vaporizer and the small size makes it easy to use anywhere you are. It can be heated with anything from a butane torch, to an element on an electric stove so you will almost always be able to use it.
After a few weeks of use there is some discoloration on the tip and cap but this is very minor and can actually look nice. There have been no issues with it so far and I have been using it more than any of my battery powered vaporizers.
The flavour on the DynaVap vaporizers is always fantastic and the NonaVonG adds a lot of style points to it. The wood makes it feel good in the hand and gives it a larger grip than the metal versions.
Pros and Cons:
- Small design
- Made of safe, easy to clean materials
- Lots of accessories available from DynaVap
- No battery you need to keep charged
- Can use any heat source
- Very lightweight due to the wood design
- Small chamber not for very heavy users
- Must have heating source on hand
The NonaVonG adds some style points that no other product from DynaVap adds. The wood makes the grip larger and easier to handle while keeping it light and durable. The wood makes it look and feel much better than the standard ‘M’.
I recommend it to someone who likes the look and feel of wood vaporizers and wants to add a new stem to their current setup. You can buy the NonaVonG as a kit but you can also just buy the stem so you can upgrade your current DynaVap product without buying a whole new one.
I will give it a passing grade and will use it when travelling because it fits in my DynaStash. It is a good upgrade to the ‘M’ stem and the titanium tip that mine came with makes it even more enjoyable.
