No Need To Smoke With The Avant Dry Herb Vaporizer
Designed for the toker on the go, The Avant Dry Herb Vaporizer by XVape uses a radiant style convection heating system to create a healthier alternative to the normal combustion style of smoking. Today Todd from Myxed Up is going to show us everything there is to know about the Avant, it's functions, and contents in this simple but convenient tutorial.
What's going on everybody? Todd here, from Myxed Up TV, and today we're going to be talking about the Avant from XVape. It's a new style vaporizer that's out on the market. Super affordable. It's just for dry herbs, though. So what we're going to do today, I actually have this one, I'm here to test it and personally use it today. So we're going to open this up, I'm going to show you guys all the little parts and stuff inside, how it functions and it works. And then we're going to grind up, I've got some nugs here, we're going to grind these guys up, toss it inside of our vape and see how it works. So let's get right into it, shall we?
So at first glance, you're going to notice this box, it's a white top, red bottom. It's got the XVape authenticity label there on the back. You can pick these up at any of our Myxed Up shops, so it's pretty nice little unit here. I'm going to go ahead and open it up. You're going to need a user's manual to start out. So it's a pretty big user's manual, it's going to have both sides there as you can see. We're actually going to go through this a little bit today, just to show you all the different things.
So when you first look you're going to see your Avant right there, it sits inside of that little foam piece there. So you can kind of use it as a carrying case if you wanted. Really nice little unit there, super simple to use. So I have actually already been charging this unit. So you're going to want to charge the unit for about three hours when you first get it, just to make sure that the battery life is at full charge, and you're going to get a good vape to start out.
Other accessories that are going to come in your box, you're going to get a charger, a USB style charger, micro-charger. You're going to get some extra screens here, that you can see. For the mouthpiece and for the base. You're going to get ... Let's see here. Your USB cable, I'm going to pull that one out. USB cable. And you're going to get some cleaning tools.
So one thing you're going to want to remember about the Avant, make sure that you stay up on your cleaning. You don't have to clean it after every use, but the more often you clean it, the better the device will work and it'll last a lot longer. So you're going to have your little tool here, to put your product down in there if you want. You're going to have your little cleaning brush here to help you out.
So that's going to be pretty much everything that you're going to see when you first open up your box here for the Avant. So I'm going to go ahead and set this stuff aside. We'll keep the manual out here so we can actually go over a few of the different specs for you while we're in here.
So the Avant, it has four different ... One, two, three, four, five different temperature cycles! And so you can see there, it runs from the low 356 degrees Fahrenheit, to a high 428 degrees Fahrenheit. And so this is going to be more of a true vape. It's a convection style ceramic heating chamber. So your top here, it's all magnetic. You just pop your top off just like that, super simple. You'll notice here your two magnets, and you've got some silicone rubber O-rings, as well as where your screen goes for your mouthpiece cover, so you don't pull any of your product into your mouth.
It also is going to have your screen on the base there, one's already included there. And it's all ceramic chamber, so what's really neat about this is, your battery and heating coils and stuff are down here on the inside. And so these air holes on the sides here, when you breathe in the air comes in here, goes down past your heating chamber. Heat comes back up through, and then the air comes through the little holes there in the center. So you end up getting a really good vape experience.
The charging unit, like I said, is on a base. Micro USB, so it's probably the same as your charger at home. The battery life in general is, it's pretty decent. It's actually got at 1200 milliamp battery. So it's a little bit less than an 18,650, but you might be able to get some really good, decent time out of this. It does have some auto-shutoff features. So when you're using the device, it'll shut itself off after a time of like three minutes and 25 seconds, or so.
So when we get into our Avant, here. First thing I'm going to do is turn it on. So we're going to go ahead and tap the button here, one, two, three, four, five. Oh, it's just three. So three taps on the button, and you'll notice that the little light came on there. Here, I can turn it around for you there. One, two, three. It should flash at you there. And now I've just shut it off. So when I hit the button nothing happens.
So go ahead and turn it back on, one, two, three. You'll notice as it flashes, and that flash at the beginning is going to tell you the battery life that you have in the pen. Right now we are at the highest setting, temperature setting, 428 degrees. I do like to have it up that high when I vape, but you can change the temperature settings pretty easy. If you just hold down the button, I believe it's about five seconds or so, you'll see that it starts to switch between all the different settings.
So when you get to your desired setting that you want it on, we just go ahead and let it go. So when we're back on the high setting there, and we're at a 428 degrees. So, really neat little unit. I really like it. It's got a one year limited manufacturer warranty, so if anything happens to the device, like manufacturer style, the heating coil stops working, the battery doesn't work, little things like that. If it falls apart, if something was just awry, amiss when they put it together. It's going to be covered for that first year warranty from purchase if you have your receipt. Or if you don't have your receipt, then it's going to be from the manufacture date on these guys, which has been probably about three or four months now. So that one-year warranty will run out pretty quick.
I can feel this getting a little bit warm on the top, now that it's actually starting to warm up. I'm going to go ahead and tap the button three times and shut it off, just so that we can go ahead and get ready to fill it up. When we first go to use it, we're going to go ahead and pull off our mouthpiece here. Now, I've got some herb here that I'm going to be testing out here. I ended up with a ... So this is actually a CBD hemp that we were given at one of the trade shows that we were at. Somebody wanted us to carry this in our shop, but it's a "full-spectrum hemp", is what they call it. It smells pretty good, actually, just smelling it here on the table.
And one thing with grinding that you're going to want to remember is to grind your product really nice and finely for vapes. So what we're going to do today, I'm going to use our Flower Power Grinder here, super easy. I'm just going to take my nug here and we're going to toss it in here, I'm going to pull off some of these stems before I toss it all the way down there, just so we don't try and do that. But you can vape all of that just the same.
So put our lid back on, we'll go ahead and give this a good buzz. Pulverize it up there for us. Looking good. So, now that we've got all of that situated down there, we're going to go ahead, pull off our top here and I can dump all of our herb. I'm going to go head and dump it down on to this tray here, our nice Myxed Up rolling tray. Just to give you guys a little show, what we got. Just a little nug. I'm going to go ahead and use my silicone brush to brush out anything extra that might be in there. Not usually too much, but I keep my Flower Power Grinder pretty nice, just so it doesn't get too gunky over time. Those resins, you know how they work.
So now we've got our bud nice and ground, down here. I'm going to go ahead and we're going to just fill this chamber up here on the base. So it should be pretty simple to do. I'm probably just going to use a little card in the corner of this tray, and just push it right on in. I think that'll work just fine. It would be neat if they had a little loading thing for this, but it's okay. We don't need anything other than ourselves.
Alright, I've got some bud down into here. Some of my product. I'm going to go ahead, I'll use my little tamping too to kind of move everything in there. Now, make sure that you fill your chamber up all the way, a nice full chamber gives you a good vaping experience. And if you end up packing too much in though, then you could end up not being able to hit it too well. So you want to fill it, but you don't want to fill it to the point where you're not going to be able to close the lid, and you're not going to be pushing all the product down and smashing it in to where you're not going to be able to use it.
Alright, so we've taken some of our buds here, we have put our product into our little chamber there that you can see. Now all we're going to do is put our lid on. So we'll go ahead and put our magnetic lid on, it slide on just like that, super easy. Remember, like I said before, we're going to tap the button here three times, one, two, three. And you'll see that it's already turning on. Showed us our battery life there at the beginning, and now we're on our 428 degree, Fahrenheit, is where I like mine at. And so now, you don't have to hold a button down or anything, it's already warming the chamber for the vape. So you can pretty much go ahead and take a puff. So why don't we go ahead and see what it does?
Yeah. It's super light vape. It's still tasty though.
So you can see a nice and light true vape. So with it's highest setting I'm not getting a big smoke, I'm getting a lot of flavor profile from the product that we're using here. It actually tastes pretty good for just the CBD product. It tastes almost just like buds just without some of terp flavors that you might get. So super, super nice, I guess that they should taste like buds, they are buds, right?
So yeah, pretty decent. Yeah. So if you don't want to keep hitting it, and say you were going to pass this around to some friends or something, or you're just going to take a puff and shut it back off, instead of waiting for the 3 minute and 25 second countdown to shut off, you can actually just touch the button three more times, one, two three, it'll flash at you and then shut down everything.
So there we go, as you can see we've took a few puffs on that little guy, the Avant. When you're done with the Avant, what's really nice about a true vape, it'll probably start to taste a little bit similar to burnt popcorn when it gets towards the end. You can actually reuse a lot of your product. So you can use this for tinctures and lotions and stuff like that, throw it into your Magical Butter Machine or make some edibles or something with your extra. Save it, don't waste it because there's lots of other stuff. Because you're only vaping it, there's a lot of other product qualities that you can get out of your herb before you toss it. Or if you don't want you can just toss it.
But super, super nifty. I kind of like the size of it here, it's really, really neat. Kind of reminds me of the PAX, very, very similar to that. Functions very easy. So I hope you guys really enjoy this, this is the Avant. Super simple on and off, its temperature settings and everything. The price on these guys, I believe is only 80 dollars, 85 dollars. So you can get them online at MyxedUp.com, we've got them up there now. I'm not sure if we have the white ones, but we definitely have the black ones that we were getting. Super, super fun little vape, though.
So if you're just looking for a dry herb vape, something that's less carcinogenic, remember it's just going to be a true vape so you're just vaping it, it's not smoking. So it's still a really, really nice alternative to smoking if you want to try and do that. But other than that, I think it's a very, very unique system that you can use.
