Grasshopper - Device Overview

In our latest post and new video, we are showing off the Grasshopper's simple and elegant features. There are so many vapes on the market, but you might notice nothing is similar to the Grasshopper. Find out why as we cover, temperature settings, chamber, on/off operation, battery swaps and more. See the video here.


We'll cover what's in the video in a little more detail.

On/Off Button - The button located on the back of the Grasshopper was designed to mimic the look and feel of a mechanical pen. You'll notice a distinct click each time you press it, as the mechanism snaps into place. Creating a button with tactile feedback expresses the idea for a simple and elegant switch while preserving the familiarity found in every pen. The Grasshopper is a fast acting vape and as such is meant to be turned on and off between every draw. The device heats up in 5 seconds. A blue LED shows the user they are ready to draw through the mouthpiece.

Mouthpiece - The Grasshopper mouthpiece is as simple as it gets. A primary goal in the design was to limit the total number of parts the Hopper could be disassembled into. The mouthpiece unscrews from the front, exposing the chamber. Our performance mouthpiece adapts to 14mm downstems so you can use your Grasshopper through your existing bong or bubbler. Both mouthpieces can be easily cleaned by soaking in isopropyl alcohol.

Temperature Dial - The temperature dial found on the back of the device is another mechanical marvel. Machined directly into the exterior, a series of 5 tick marks allow the user to dial in the temperature quickly. A temperature range of 266° F to 410° F gives the flexibility necessary to get the most out of your experience. While there are five distinct marks, the spectrum between them is completely active. Dial in any temperature you like. 

Battery Swap - One of the Grasshoppers best features is a small user swappable battery. We made changing the battery as easy as possible to facilitate the use of multiple batteries. This maximizes the performance-to-size ratio of the Hopper, providing more power in a smaller package than any other dry herb vaporizer.

Auto Off - A simple and reliable auto-off feature will shut down your device automatically if it is left on. This feature will only activate if you have not taken a draw for about 15 seconds. If your device powers off, click the button to bring it back online.
