What is a Dynavap Induction Heater, how does it work?
Cody from Greenstone Dispensary here. Many of you have entered the Dynaverse and from the reviews and feedback I get through our customer service channels, they are a revolution, this is a view that I, myself, share as well.
You may have noticed we have stocked the Induction Heaters for the Dynavap, but at the cost it might be hard to make a decision on what one to get. I’ve had a play with them all so I will give you an honest breakdown of my findings, but first let me explain what an induction heater is.
What is an Induction Heater?
An induction heater is an electronic heater that uses a magnetic coil wrapped in electrical wire. When an electrically conductive metal is inserted into the coil an “eddy current” generates heat from within the object itself, creating an even heat distribution. Induction Heaters are so powerful they can melt metals in a few seconds if not monitored or regulated (in this case all out Induction Heaters have safety features to reduce the likelihood of this occurring).
When using an induction heater with a Dynavap, you can achieve a very even heat in a very short amount of time, while offering unparalleled control. This aids in optimal vapourisation of your material, all without the need for a flame!
Which Induction Heater is right for me?
We offer Dynavap’s full range of induction heaters, the Apollo 2, Apollo 2 Rover, and the Orion. All of them offer the same power and ease of use, though they vary in their portability.
The Apollo 2 is a mains powered induction heater that is designed to sit on your coffee table. It is activated by a button nestled inside the induction coil that is depressed when you insert your Dynavap (cap first). A red light indicates the unit is heating, once the Dynavap reaches temperature it clicks as usual. Some people prefer to “disrespect the click” and run it a couple of seconds past the second click.
The Apollo 2 Rover has all the features of the Apollo 2, but with the addition of a battery pack. This allows you to use it both as a table top heater or as a portable heater. The Apollo 2 Rover is the perfect middle ground between full portability and at home use. The 1550mAh battery is big enough to last 2-3 days of moderate use (20ish heat cycles)before it needs to be charged again.
The Orion is the most technical of all the induction heaters, and is fully portable. This heater features a 1000mAh battery that lasts 2 days of moderate use (15ish heat cycles). Unlike the Apollo 2 Rover this heater is best used as a portable device only. The Orion isn’t button activated, a sensor is activated when a Dynavap is inserted, heating takes between 5 and 10 seconds.
After having a play with them all I have found the Apollo 2 to be the perfect for regular at home use due to the reliability of its power supply. If you have an Apollo 2 or want something 100% portable then the Orion is the best solution for you. If you are on the fence about which one to get the Apollo 2 Rover will provide both ongoing table top usage and portability.
Regardless you will quickly discover the benefits of a flameless heating method, the convenience of using you Dynavap without needing to pay attention to the flame, watching your favourite series or movie in peace without a torch hissing away the quieter sounds, and the level of control that delivers you the best experience and efficiency possible.
We have limited stock of the Induction Heaters so if you’re interested don’t miss out, you won’t regret it!
