The vaporizer wizards over at Vape Forest got a hold of DaVinci’s new portable vaporizer [Ascent] and published a review of it on their website. They also concocted a quick video review which you can watch on YouTube or simply scroll down below because it’s embedded further down on this page. For those of you Codeword.org readers who don’t keep up with the latest news in the vape scene, this new portable is the first ever (please, correct us if we’re wrong) glass on glass portable vaporizer. Not even Arizer’s Solo can make that claim (not yet anyways). While the Solo had been holding it down at the top of the top 10 vaporizers list at VapeForest.com, it’s this new DaVinci vaporizer that’s finally dethroned the long reigning king of portables. Keep in mind while reading this, what isn’t fact is merely our opinion or likely the opinions of Vape Forest. Sorry for that rude interruption, but it’s sometimes necessary to clarify such things before moving on. Let us begin!
It’s easiest to start with the flaws in this writer’s opinion so that’s just what we’ll do. It’s hard to say that there’s really any downside, but the size isn’t quite on the Pax level in regards to how compact it is. We won’t even get into how it compares in size to the Magic-Flight Launch Box because that wouldn’t be a fair comparison. The essential oil jars (great for aromatherapy oils and eLiquids used in electronic cigarettes) make it easy to vaporize your favorite liquid blends, however, they get extremely hot to the touch according to our friends at Vape Forest and that’s a downside to some extent. Then again, you might not think any of these so called “cons” are all that bad and the truth is that they really aren’t. The cons just don’t outweigh the benefits.
You can use it for 3-4 hours and that’s more than enough time for most folks to get through the day. It recharges its lithium ion batteries easily and it doesn’t take all that long. The screen makes it easy to see what’s going on with the device while you’re using it. It vapes all the way up to 430 deg. Fahrenheit and you can do some crazy manipulating of the temperature by setting it to different temperatures and telling it to hold that temp. for a period of time before adjusting to another one. That makes it easy to program in a nice little cycle where you go from 390F to 400F and then to 420 degrees Fahrenheit and so on. It feels sturdy but probably isn’t quite as durable as the older DaVinci vaporizers. The all glass vapor pathway design makes super pure vapor from what this site tells us and it’s consistent which seems to imply that it’s doing a decent job of holding a steady vaporizing temperature where some of the others do not. The loading chamber where you place your blend, also known as the bowl, is really big compared to a lot of other portable vapes. The ceramic heating element is lined with glass so you don’t taste the ceramic and if you ask me, that’s innovation. If you use the glass mouthpiece extension, you might find that the vapor is a bit cooler than were you to use it without it (which is also possible). All in all, it vapes well and that’s what’s really the biggest benefit of them all and often the most important factor when deciding whether or not a particular vaporizer is worth purchasing.
So here’s that video that we were talking about. In this Ascent vaporizer review you’ll “see one in the flesh,” as on YouTube user by the name of Slam Dango commented. Not only that, you’ll get a brief overview of what it’s about and how well it works.
Ascent In The News:
Looks like this is going to be the next big portable in the vape world. Big news websites like CBS News, the Daily Herald, Boston.com, and many others. It appears as if the media is beginning to pick up on this new portable vaporizer. The news coverage indicated that the “Ascent is now at the top spot in the website’s famous Top 10 Vaporizers list.”
Looks great with the crock-skin and it looks like it comes in 2 more colors/patterns which are equally appealing. The only tough decision when it comes to this one is what color to buy it in. If you’re wondering just how much one of these babies is going to cost you, use the link below to visit the manufacturer’s website where you can see just how much they’re going for.
