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.
There are a lot of reasons why you would want to start using a Vaporizer and below we have provided a list of some of the most common reasons people are looking to vaporizers as the future of consumption.
The Grasshopper Vaporizer’s Front-end is the primary user interface point. Users draw through it, pulling hot air into the chamber, creating vapor as the oil in the plant material boils. A feat of both engineering and manufacturing, the Front-end pairs an elegant design with effective vapor delivery.
The Backend is the technical designation for the On/Off button and temperature dial component of the Grasshopper. A jam-packed piece of machined stainless steel contains a circuit board, microcontroller, springs, temperature dial, On/Off button, clip, and battery access threading. This compact and complex piece is responsible for the user interface and easy operation of the device
Hopper Labs recently launched a new YouTube Channel where we are posting videos about Hopper use and production. Videos are uploaded weekly, along with monthly giveaways and special events all on the channel. Subscribe here. Our latest video covers some of the testing and quality control that happens at our assembly facility. We've been working on improving the testing processes for the last two years.
Amsterdam has long been the mecca for cannabis. 'Coffeeshops' in Amsterdam are cafes that offer premium cannabis to consume inside or on the patios. I must say, it’s a great time. They offer various styles and experiences. New Times Coffeeshop is upbeat like a nightclub, while Coffeeshop Reefer is relaxing and quiet. People from all over the world roll joints and enjoy each other’s company. If you are interested in learning more, Jimmy Nevski gives a thorough breakdown of popular coffeeshops.
Thanks for taking a minute to read about our latest progress and developments. In July we successfully sustained a combine 200 units a week of assembly and warranty. Our new heating component assembly line is operating smoothly paving the way for higher volumes in the coming months, and the addition of more automation is making the whole process faster.
