Step 1: Remove unit from upper shelf of the packaging container, place the viVape on a flat, stable, clean, dry and dust-free surface. Remove top shelf to access the bottom accessory shelf, a power cord is located in the lower accessory shelf, proceed to plug the unit into an electrical wall outlet. The viVape is designed to be used universally with a power voltage rating of 110/240, 50-60 Hz., the touch screen display will light up indicating that the unit is ready for use. Note: an outlet adaptor may be required for international use, check local requirements.
Step 2: Press the ON button on the touch screen display, a Timer Screen will come up on the display; set the timer for your choice of default shut-off time, by pressing the + or – buttons, (the timer can be set from 15 minutes to 3 hours of use) then press SET. The Operations Screen will appear on the display indicating the choice of using the Balloon/Bag or the Wand/Whip method of vaporizing.
Step 3: Press the wand/whip tab on the display, the tab will turn to green. The viVape is factory preset to vaporize at a target temperature of 350 degrees which is shown on the Change Target Temp tab, the unit will start to heat up and the Current Temperature reading will increase and change color from blue to green once the target temperature is reached and the blue light in the glass heating chamber will also light up, signaling that the viVape is ready for use.
Step 4: We highly recommend the use of an herbal grinder to grind your favorite herbal material, grinding the herb will produce a better quality aroma, herbal flavor and vapor. Remove the silicone tubing, the glass herbal container/whip, mouthpiece and the 1” clear tube safety cover, from the lower accessory shelf, these 4 parts when assembled are called the Wand Hand Kit. For use of the optional Aquavape, please see the Aquavape instructions if purchased separately.
Step 5: First slide the 1” tube safety cover over the 3’ silicon tubing, then moisten the smallest ends of each glass part before inserting into each end of the silicone tubing; this makes it easier to insert the glass herbal container / whip on one end after which you slide the tube safety cover over the joint created by the overlap of the silicon tubing and the glass herbal container/whip, and then the glass mouth adapter at the other end. Once assembled, load the ground herbal material into the herbal container/whip by using the assembled wand hand kit as a vacuum by inhaling from the mouth adapter, and by pointing/placing the whip on top of the herbal material and using it as a vacuum to pick up the material to be vaporized. You can fill the clear glass area of the whip with the desired amount of herb, from full to 1/3 of the glass area above the screen and below the lower portion of the ground glass joint, based on desired consumption.
Step 6: Once the viVape has reached the target temperature (turns green) and the end of the air chamber turns blue, you’re ready to go. By picking up the herbal container/whip by the clear tube safety cover in one hand, insert the glass herbal container/whip’s ground joint into the unit’s heating chamber opening, and with the other hand bring the glass mouth piece to your mouth and begin to inhale slowly and steadily until desired vapor is achieved. Note: it may take a few seconds for the vapor to accumulate once the wand is inserted into the heating chamber, you will notice a slight vapor coming out of the mouth piece when you’re ready to begin inhaling.
Step 7: If you feel the vapor is too weak or too harsh for your preference, you can increase (harshen) or decrease (weaken) the target temperature setting by pressing the Change Target Temperature tab, which brings up the Temperature Adjustment screen. Temperature can be selected to read in Fahrenheit or Celsius by selecting and pressing the desired tab; to change ‘Target Temperature’ press the + or - button on the display until the desired ‘Target Temperature’ is shown and then press SET, the display will then return to the Operations screen. Repeat this procedure to set a different target temperature of your choice or until you have reached your desired temperature and the best quality of vapor that you desire.
Step 8: After desired inhalations, by holding the clear tube safety cover, remove the glass herbal container/whip from the heating chamber (never touch the actual glass whip or heating chamber right after use, as they will be too hot). Occasionally stir the herbal material with the provided Stirring Stick located in the plastic bag in the lower shelf of the packaging container, this is necessary in order to obtain maximum benefit and vapor quality from your herbal material. Once finished, you can discard the vaporized herbal material by blowing through the mouth adapter, just reverse the loading process, (unless you are using an Aquavape in which case you would remove the Aquavape then proceed to blow the material out) by pointing the herbal container/whip into a waste container. Note: that you should never leave the viVape unit unattended while it is being operated. Please note, it’s advised to remove the herbal container/whip from the unit while you’re not actually inhaling/vaporizing since this will result in unnecessary heating/wasting of material from excessive heat exposure.
Step 9: The viVape has a unique feature, ‘Set It and Forget It,’ and an automatic cooling and shut off timer. After using the viVape, press the OFF button on the display; only the fan will continue running and the display will indicate ‘cooling down do not unplug’ the unit until it shuts down by itself automatically. You may leave the unit plugged in as it will go into a dormant state until you touch the Touch Screen to ON screen for future use or you can unplug and store the unit once it has safely cooled down and the fan has turned off completely; this will allow the unit to cool down safely in order to protect the components from being damaged by not being cooled properly with the fan. The unit will remember your Target Temperature when turned on for your next time of use.
