Heating Tips

George’s biggest word of advice when heating your VapCap: slow down! Give a little more space between your heat source and device so that the heat has more time to soak into the tip. By encouraging a less intense temperature, you’ll get a more satisfying experience overall.

With an induction heater, Pranav recommends using the pulse method. This also slows down the heating process.

Josh also agrees with the slow heating approach. George also recommends getting to know your VapCap by heating it up empty for the first time.

The tips Josh discussed are further emphasized in this week’s episode of The Snap, which features several basic heating techniques with the 2020 M. You can watch that episode of the Snap or for a more detailed guide, you can also read our blog.

If you’re using a single flame torch such as the Javeline, your heating time will take a little bit longer. With the 2020 M especially, the overall time will take longer due to it having more mass to heat up. This also means the 2020 M will stay hot longer.
