Introduction

The DV8 Vaporizer is a unique vape collaboration between BMIC Tech and Boundless Technology. And as the name suggests, this vape definitely Deviates from the established course. It has an unusual design, to say the least- a heavy, super-sturdy stainless steel box. 

It is compatible only with dry herb and retails for $249 directly from Boundless (use coupon code TVG15 for 15% off.) That said, let's dive in.

Design & Features

So the first thing you may be thinking when looking at this vaporizer is- wtf is that thing?! It doesn't look like any vape I've used in the past. It has this heavy, boxy, industrial look. Its entire shell is made from stainless steel, and it only has one activation button and ventilation holes on the outside. Definitely doesn't look like an ordinary vaporizer. 

Slide-up cover

The side is a slide-up cover that magnetically latches to the base. It has a few positions: open about a third of the way, two-thirds, or completely open. 

Magnetic mouthpiece

The mouthpiece sits on top and connects magnetically as well. This is the only part of the vape that is not made from stainless and is made from Zirconia instead. 

When the vape is assembled, and the mouthpiece is attached, only the small tip sticks out from the device. The rest of it is flash with the device, and again, it's a very non-ordinary design. 

Under the hood

Under the magnetic side cover are the:

  • Battery: 1200mAh removable battery
  • Two spots for dosing capsules
  • USB-C port
  • Screen with two buttons

Durability

The heavy-duty, full-metal casing is built to last. The device even survived a series of torture tests, proving its resilience against extreme conditions. The magnets are stong and hold the cover/mouthpiece firmly. 

Key Features

Full-Range Temperature Control

The DV8 offers a full-range temperature control up to 464°F. Terpene enthusiasts vape can vaporize at low temps (360-380F) and savor the flavor, while cloud chasers can bump it up (410-430) to get maximum flavor and effects. 

Hybrid Heating System

The DV8 employs a hybrid heating system that combines convection and conduction. Conduction heat is used to heat up the herbs from the sides of the bowl, while convection heat is pulled inside with each inhale. 

How to use

  • Grind your herb and load the chamber. This is a hybrid vape so load it pretty tight. If you wiggle the device, nothing should fall off. 
  • Set the temp with the +/- buttons
  • Hold the power button to start heating up. The device will vibrate when it reaches the desired temp. 

Flavor and Vapor Quality

The DV8 delivers a flavorful experience. Personally, I found the sweet spot to be around 395-415°F, pretty much as the manufacturer suggests. Long, slow pulls produced more vapor and allowed me to fully appreciate the terpene profile of the strain I was vaping.

Final Thoughts

The DV8 Vaporizer is an unusual device that offers a blend of discreetness, durability, and flavor. Its full-range temperature control and hybrid heating system make it a versatile choice for any vaping enthusiast.
