What's going on, everybody? Todd here from Myxed Up TV, and today, we're gonna be talking about the Vista Mini from XVAPE. It's a new style vaporizer. It's more of a portable dab rig. XVAPE was kind enough to toss it out to me, so today what we're gonna do, we're gonna open this bad boy up. I'm gonna show you all the different parts and the features of it, and we're gonna take a big old dab out and see how we like it. So, let's jump on into it, shall we?

So, when you first get your XVAPE Vista Mini, you'll notice when you open up the box there it's a pretty decent little box, it's gonna have a foam insert. You are gonna have your authenticity on the back here, so make sure that you're getting a true XVAPE. Let's go ahead, and we'll open up. You're gonna have a little card here, it's gonna tell you a bunch of the different features that actually come in this. This one has a couple different features here. So, detachable bubbler, pure taste, fantastic LED light, wireless charging, and three temperature settings. Pretty easy to do. It's got the quick start guide on here, but we're gonna get into it. So first here, you're gonna see on your user's manual ... you'll definitely want to keep a hold of this. It's gonna have everything that you're gonna need to know about your XVAPE inside of it. This one's got pretty much everything spelled out for you there, so we'll just run through the whole manual little bit by bit, and show you guys everything that comes in it.

Here it is. As you can see, your Vista Mini. I've got my vape here, pretty nifty little vape device there. This guy comes apart into different pieces, so totally cleanable. It's really nice. There's a glass carb cap there. You're also gonna get a funnel to put water in and out of your Vista. It's not necessary, but it does help a little bit if you need it. Then, we also have our mouthpiece. That's gonna come out too, nice little glass mouthpiece there. So, pull that out, then we have our accessories box. That's everything in the box. You probably want to keep that because it's a good little travel case to go along with everything.

In our accessory kit, it's gonna have all your other stuff. You're gonna have a coil in here, gonna have your charger. As you can see, a whole bunch of little things. Your little dab nail there. This is a ceramic one here, super, super nice. It's gonna come with some rubber silicons to keep everything from dropping off of your mouthpiece, but first thing. What I'm gonna do is I'm gonna take it apart for you so you can see all the little pieces, then we'll put it back together, fill it up with some water, and then we'll use it. Does that sound good? So, let's take our accessory box out. You're gonna get extra O-rings, so keep a hold of those. Extra silicone connectors, so these are actually nice holders. Make sure you keep those. You're gonna get your K-clip there which is really nice. It's actually meant to hold this. Here, we'll just actually pull it all apart.

So, your top part here, this actually just pulls straight off. It's just a push on and off. There's a nice little silicone ring that holds it on there. So, this is where you're gonna actually screw down your coil. Before we do that, I'm gonna go ahead and show you the rest of the step. So, if I unscrew this base here, you'll notice that the base where this all comes out. What's really nice, this is your bubbler tube here, so this is what your smoke is gonna be traveling through. That can get sticky and gunky, so very easy to pull apart. You could actually clean the entire thing, so you could go in and soak them if you want. That's just your little downstem there, so pull that out. You see here? This is your glass bubbler piece here. Very nice where your mouthpiece is gonna go in there, and then you have your base unit here, and that is basically your battery.

 

So, it does come with a micro USB charger here on the side. Probably the same as your phone unless you have an iPhone, but it also has a fun feature which if you use a charging dock station where you just lay down your cell phone or something like that, these will work on that. It doesn't come with the kit, but it's a generic device that you can get, so you can just set it down and it'll charge. I've actually charged this one up, so we should be ready to go. I'm gonna go ahead, and we've got our glass piece here. I've got a little bit of water here in this cup, and we're just gonna go ahead and pour a little bit of this water down into here. You can use your funnel if you want. You want to make sure that when you're putting your water in, you're going into the sides. You're not going into the center. If you put it in the center, it's gonna go down and hit your battery, and you don't want to do that.

It might even be easier for people, if you're a little bit afraid, you could fill it off just like this. So, you could see here, it's very simple. We're just gonna toss some water in and let it fill up. Now, you'll notice that there is a fill line on the battery here. It might be a little bit hard for you guys to see, but it's right there. There's a fill line, so when you put your glass bubbler back on top, you want to make sure you look through and you at least get above that fill line. If you fill it up too, too much, it'll end up pulling water back at you, and you don't want to do that. It'll end up being a straw. So, there we go. We've got our water in there. Make sure you're keeping it nice and straight so we don't get any water on anything else, and now that we've got our piece on there, I'm gonna go ahead. We're gonna take our top piece here, so this has a little O-ring that you can see. This little O-ring just came off, but it's not a big deal.

It just sits there anyway, and it's meant to keep both pieces so that they're nice and air tight once you just screw them down. So now that we have this piece on, and then we've got our O-rings situated ... I'm having some O-ring issues. It's okay. Just take a second here, put that back on. There we go. So, we got the O-ring on there nice. Put the bubbler down in here and then you go ahead and screw these two pieces together, and what that's doing now is actually pulling the two O-rings down and getting a nice tight seal that you can see there. So, now our downstem is in there, we got our water at a right spot. Time to take our coil.

So, I did get a chance to try this one out a little bit just to make sure that we would run through this okay. So, I've got a little bit of dab in there, but it's a ceramic style coil, and I'm actually gonna toss a little bit more in there. What's neat about this device is you can actually just drop in a couple dabs right into the device and it will automatically just stay there, and you can just dab it and dab it, and pass it around. We've got our coil screwed down there now onto the top of our base there. We're gonna take our cap here. Remember how I told you before? It just pulls off, so you just push it right back on there. Bam, very easy. So now, we've got our carb cap. You'll want to make sure that your carb cap is gonna go on top. We're also going to be using one of our silicon connectors here. And so this is what, you want to make sure you do this before you do anything else, because you don't want to drop your glass carb cap.

So, we'll go ahead and take this silicone, and we're just gonna pull it over on both of these little pieces here. Move that back out a little bit. There you go. So, you can see here it's like a silicone connector, and that comes in handy especially if you're taking a dab and it falls off or something. Makes it very convenient so that people don't lose it. We'll get into that in just a little bit, and now we got our mouthpiece. Mouthpiece goes on. Your K-clip is designed to keep your mouthpiece from coming out. What I really like that they did, this 14 millimeter glass on glass here, because what's really cool is if you've got a 14 millimeter hose for a vaporizer or something like that, you could actually put a big hose on this and you could just vape. You wouldn't have to actually hold onto it or anything.

Neat little thing there, but we're gonna take our K-clip. Just clips on just like that, so now my mouthpiece isn't gonna come out. We've already got everything set, and it looks like we're about ready to go. You're also gonna get a little dab tool here, a key chain XVAPE dab tool. Pretty, pretty nice. So, I'm gonna go ahead, and we'll turn on the unit and show you guys a couple of the features. So, I think it's one, two, three, and there we go. So, you can see now that it turned on. It's got a nice red light there. If I do two buttons, one, two, it changes the color. Each color setting is actually a temperature setting. The white is the lowest setting. I believe it runs around 200 degrees or so. We can look at it here. Oh, that was Celsius. So, 535 degrees is the white temperature. 662 is the green, so you tap it twice and it goes green, and then 752 is the high. So tap it twice and go to the red.

I'm gonna do a nice high dab for us today so we could actually see it work for us. So what I've done here, is I've brought in a little bit of dabs here from Dabbington Concentrates. Thanks Dabbington. I'm just gonna take a little bit of the dab and put it on here, and I like to put it in first and then heat it up. There's our little dab that we're gonna go here, and then I'm just gonna drop it right down into our coil here. So, I'll show you guys. You can see the dab down in there, and it's not started yet. We haven't started heating it, so we're gonna put our carb cap back on and then what I like to do is let it warm itself up. So, we tap it one time, it'll start flashing, and that's actually the function. It runs through a 20 second autoheat cycle, and then once it's a solid color again, it's done heating. So, you can hit the button again and it'll run through another session for you.

So, it's really nice to be able to just pass it around to friends, and it also has a off feature. As you can see, it shut itself down just for me right now. So, I'm gonna go ahead and one, two, three. We turn it back on, we're at the red setting. We've chosen our heat setting that we like, and I'm gonna hit it one time, and now it's gonna start to flash. So now as it's flashing, it's actually starting to melt the dabs on the ceramic coil there, and I can actually start to hit it.

Tasty. So, what's really nice about this is it's more of a true vape. You can see that we've already stopped our heating cycle. It's already run through, but if we wanted to hit it again and get a nice warmer hit, just turn it on again. Some people like to take long, drawn out, slow dabs and that's where you'll get your best flavors and biggest hits. Pretty simple device, right? Very straightforward. I think it's a really nice vape that you can get out there on the market. I'm not sure the pricing. I think we're probably selling these at about $180 or so. It might be actually a little bit less, but I'd have to look it up. I'm not actually sure of the price, but really enjoy this little vape. It's a cool little portable guy. True vape, so nice little 2,000 milliamp battery on this guy, and I believe it's gonna have a one year manufacturer warranty from your purchase date, so make sure that you keep your receipt for that guy.

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.

 

Video Transcript

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. So make sure you guys are checking that out. If you enjoy all of these, make sure that you go over and you subscribe, hit that subscribe button right there. We appreciate you, we're on all over the networks now. So as always, this is Myxed Up TV, I'm Todd, and we'll see you next time.

Well that about does it for the Avant Dry Herb Vaporizer by XVape. Overall this vaporizer will do wonders not only for its portability and design but also for your lungs which will be thanking you from now on for the smarter choices in consumption. If you would like to check out The Avant you can see them in all our Myxed Up Creation locations in Denver, Aurora, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo, or you can order online here.
