The VapCap M by DynaVap is a herbal and resin vaporizer. Slightly different from its predecessor VapCap Original, the VapCap M is made of Stainless steel instead of glass. The 9.2 cm vaporizer is a non electrical vaporizer and requires flame as heat source. Once the vapor is ready, a click sound is made by the built-in temperature indicator.
VapCap M Review
The original VapCap stunned the world with its unique temperature-sensing cap and shockingly dense vapor and the M can do everything that the original could with a few more features. VapCaps are pen-like herb and resin vaporizers that are heated using an outside source of energy, like a flame or a butane torch. This gives the user complete flexibility when it comes to when and where they vape. Batteries are no issue and most flames stronger than a candle work just fine. Standing at just 9.2 centimeters, there’s no worry about concealing this little device for use in the great outdoors or elsewhere. Considering how budget-friendly the M is, there’s hardly any risk in trusting DynaVap’s new VapCap M.
DynaVap designed the VapCap series in the United States, usually a good sign for craftsmanship. Ever since they released the first VapCap, their renown has grown with each new device sold. They claim that the VapCap M is the smallest vaporizer ever created. There’s no telling if that’s true, but it could be, and that says enough about the incredible engineering of the DynaVap vaporizers. They designed the VapCap series to be the cutting edge of “battery-free” vaping and have followed suit with a great product. You can now get dense, flavorful vapor that literally fits into the palm of your hand and comes in at just about a quarter of an ounce on the scales.
If you didn’t think the VapCap M was a steal before, wait until you hear about the possibilities of upgrade afforded by the modular quality of it’s construction. DynaVap has ensured that the M is compatible with just about every accessory that they offer already, as well as in the future. The tip, the cap, and the mouthpiece can be replaced with finer materials and specialized utilities. The included cap is already quite impressive as it can sense when the M has reached vaporizing temperature and produce an audible warning. This is unique to the VapCap series and really improves the user’s ability to avoid combustion. Once the vaporizer cools down enough to need more heat, a second “click” will take place. The engineers over at DynaVap tackled a problem that plagues most battery-less vaporizers with some ingenious ideas. Now, it’s basically impossible to burn your herbs or resins without doing it on purpose.
Fire it up
One of the great benefits to going without a battery is the complete control you have over the vapor that comes out of your device. With most vaporizers the battery settings are generally set in stone. Not only that, but they require daily recharges and special care to maintain them over time. The VapCap M could function in the stone ages, all you really need is fire. Even a flaming stick found at a campfire would do the job. However, you’re not going to want to do that on a regular basis. For daily use, a butane torch is going to be your best bet. That will get the cap clicking in about 3 seconds. A normal lighter is capable of doing the trick in about 10 seconds.

How to Vape with the VapCap M
Sure the VapCap M might be the next stage in vaporization, but it does operate a little differently than you might be used to. Each heating can usually get you about 2-3 draws if you operate the device correctly:
- Remove the temperature-sensing cap and fill the chamber with either herb or resin.
- Replace cap and apply heat.
- During heat application, be sure to rotate the VapCap M so that your materials are evenly vaporized.
- The cap will click and at that point you can begin to draw from the device 2-3 times.
- If you would like to draw again, wait until the second click so that you avoid combusting your materials.
- When you no longer get vapor using this technique, you have completely exhausted your materials.
As soon as I saw the VapCap M, I knew this would be a different kind of device. The full stainless steel construction appeals to the mechanic in me, it just has a rugged look to it and backs that up by being nigh unbreakable. The vapor that comes out of it is also very unique. It’s quite possibly the closest you can get to combustion without actually inhaling harmful chemicals. The hits are very similar to what you would get from a handheld pipe. For an outdoorsman, it’s a very appealing solution to the lack of electricity in the woods. All you have to do is pack this and your favorite material into your bag and go. Fire, at this point in history, is likely eminently available anywhere you go. For that, the VapCap M gets top marks in both portability, performance, and looks. It’s a different kind of vaporizer than you might be used to, and that’s a good thing.
