Made by DaVinci, the Ascent Vaporizer represents the latest in vaporizer technology. This unit features a digital temperature control system that allows the user to adjust the vaporizing temperature with ease and precision. The removable glass mouthpiece makes it easy to transport and ensures only the best tasting vapor because of the all-glass pathway. The Ascent Vaporizer was made using the highest quality components and utilizes a ceramic heating element for producing the best quality vapor. It runs on two re-chargeable and replaceable lithium ion batteries that provide 2-3 hours of continuous use. It's sleek and compact design make it perfect for vaporists on the go and it can be used in almost any setting while still being discreet. ALL GLASS AIR PATH The Ascent Vaporizer employs an all-glass air path that ensures the cleanest and best tasting vapor possible. Unlike many other portable vaporizers that utilize plastic or metal, the Ascent uses glass because it doesn't release any odors or other toxins while heating up. It also makes it very simple and easy to clean your air path between uses to maximize efficiency and performance. DIGITAL DISPLAY The digital display on the Ascent provides accurate and helpful information regarding your heating temperature and battery life. The temperature settings can easily be managed with this clear display to help make sure you are vaporizing at the perfect temperatures for vaporization. QUICK HEAT-UP TIME Once a desired temperature has been set, the numerical degree readout begins to count up. The Ascent precisely reaches the temp within 55 seconds on average. The unit is capable of reaching 430°F, which takes roughly 90 seconds to achieve. There is also a timer function to set a designated amount of time for the unit stay on before the auto-shut off kicks in. PROGRAMMABLE TEMPERATURE PATTERNS The Ascent is rather unique as it allows for the user to set a range of temperatures that it will automatically adjust to after a set time frame. An example being that the Ascent can be set to 365° for 2 minutes, increase to 375° for 2 minutes and then up to 385° to finish up. This feature assists in efficient vaporization by slowly raising the temperature until all of the active ingredients have been released. SUPPORTS WAX CONCENTRATES The Ascent offers the ability to vaporize both dry herb and concentrates (waxy oils). The included glass oil jars hold the concentrate, which then fit into the heating chamber. This keeps it separate from the dry herb, allowing the unit to stay cleaner and require less maintenance. Note: A higher heating temperature is necessary when vaporizing concentrates.
