From the old FC; Vleaf Go: on-demand convection herb vaporizer!

1* O Ring (For Chamber)
1* Scoop Seal
************************************************************************************************************

Having been a Go owner for several weeks, I am loving this little vape!

Inexpensive, packs a punch if you want it to, instant heat up with great flavor, open draw, easy to load, easy to keep clean, pocket-able, user replaceable heater, chamber bowl and mouthpiece (but not the battery; that is built-in).

The chamber itself has a built-in scoop (not shown in illustration) that can scoop straight from grinder, etc., and the cap doubles as a tamper/poker tool, so it's all self-contained. The mouthpiece is comfortable and stays cool (it is some sort of plastic) and is shaped to also "fit" on your glass piece. (it does not mimic a true gong joint, but can fit to glass)

This vape is oriented toward single-user on-demand hits, whether a single micro-dose or a few nice draws from the relatively small chamber....in succession or at intervals of your choosing.

Here's my old review from the old FC thread:
-----------------------------------------------------------------


I've had one of these to test for a couple weeks as well.

Here is my review/thoughts so far (written several days ago):


I must admit that I only had about a week to use and test this device before writing this, though I would normally prefer at least twice that much time to review a device, but here goes...

For starters, the retail packaging is very nice. It’s sturdy, protective, and detailed. I expect that I will continue to use the box for storing this device.









I like the instruction manual that was included in the box. It felt very thorough, and had plenty of images that really helped to understand everything. I also was happy to see the spare parts and accessories that were included. I really felt like everything I would need was in the box.






As far as the first impressions of the look of the vaporizer, It’s sleek and smooth matte finish is something I like. That matte finish doesn’t feel like it will show scratches much. However, I suspect that the plastic piece on the bottom will start to hold scratches quickly, or at least it feels that way to me.

I must admit that when I first pulled it out of the box, my first reaction was that it looked a lot like a small vibrator…not that I have a problem with that. I just found it amusing. That look disappears with the silicone mouthpiece cover on it though.

All jokes aside however, it’s a good looking little vaporizer. It feels like it had a lot of inspiration from both the Grasshopper and the Dynavap vaporizers. Dynavap of course, because of the little digger/packer that sticks down from one side of the cap. I actually like that feature.




The accessories provided in the box really gives you everything you will need for some time, including a spare vapor cooler, spare bowl, and replacement gasket(s) and o-rings.




I really like how the device can be disassembled for cleaning. A lot of small vaporizers in this category are fully sealed, except for the cap/mouthpiece, and you can’t clean underneath the chamber/bowl. So I love how all of the gaskets and the chamber itself are completely removable/cleanable/replaceable.You don’t see that feature enough in these smaller devices. My only worry there is that the two little nubs on both sides of the scoop assembly that snap into place when the scoop assembly is rotated into place will eventually wear down and possibly break off.

I also really love the scoop itself. I rather appreciated being able to use the vape itself to scoop material directly into the chamber without needing a separate spoon/scoop. That was a really good feature to have included!

One thing I did not care for about the cap design is the silicone air cooler inside the cap. I would often accidentally push it to one side or the other with the edge of the scoop when putting the cap on, and then I’d have to jam my fat finger in there to nudge it back into place before carefully putting the cap on without coming into contact with the bottom of the air cooler and pushing it to the side again, which also happened sometimes. So, a design change to the inside of the cap that better held the air cooler straight in place would be a welcome improvement.

I do like that the heater itself is removable/replaceable. I wonder if they will have multiple heater options in the future.

And lastly concerting the outer design of the device, I liked that the fire button is “clicky” in a nice mechanical feeling way, but I did not like how “wobbly” the button felt. It had a bit more play/movement/wiggle in that regard than I would normally prefer.

On to the vapor production itself. The heater in this device is great. I say that because I tend to prefer a little hotter vapor than many people do. I tend to use many of my vapes natively on their highest temperature settings all the time. But not this one. I was very happy with the medium temp setting, and could see myself doing more extended sessions on the low temp setting. The high temp setting was a bit much using the vape dry, but I could see myself finishing bowls through water at the highest setting occasionally when I wanted to pull hard and fast.

I would say that the vapor flavor is decent for a vape this size, and in the price bracket that that this device is being sold at. Though the flavor quality trails off quite a bit after the first two or three pulls. That’s not to say that the flavor is bad after the first couple of pulls, but it quickly mellows down after the first couple of pulls. However, the ABV that I pulled out of this thing was well-extracted, and evenly roasted . I was very happy with the efficiency of this unit. No stirring needed.

And of course, another thing I love about this unit is the incredibly fast heat-up time. It only feels like a couple seconds time between holding the button down and pulling vapor from this device. This aspect of the unit is very well done and appreciated. I feel that feature will be especially appreciated by those newly moving away from smoking to vaporizing. It will make the transition much easier for them.

Of course the elephant in the room is how the mouthpiece (and the upper body) of the device get very hot very quickly. The silicone mouthpiece cover shields ones lips from this, but the top half of the metal body itself easily gets quite warm. It would be a good improvement if anything could be done to lower the heat transfer to the metal part of the body.

The ability to utilize both a session mode, as well as an on-demand mode was also greatly appreciated. Although I normally prefer a session mode, and rarely used the session mode on this device. But it’s still nice to know it’s there.

I would like a removable/user-replaceable battery. I always prefer to be able to take multiple fully-charged batteries with me when I’m on the go, so I can just swap a depleted one out for a fresh one without having to wait for the depleted one to charge. But I also know that’s a difficult feature to implement in such a small device.

And finally, on to using this device with water. I absolutely love that this unit is designed to mate with a water tool right out of the box. That is a great feature! I also found myself using it with the silicone mouthpiece cover, as it makes a great seal with the glass as well. The on-demand, almost instant heat-up of this device makes it ideal for use with water-tools. I can see myself using it largely for that purpose in the future.

All in all, I think this is a very capable and convenient vaporizer that I would recommend especially to someone new to vaporizers, as it’s very easy to use, is efficient, and can churn out larger clouds if you want it to. I wish the vapor could be cooled a bit more though. In that light, maybe something like the zirconia spiral that is found in the mouthpiece of the Flowermate CAP might really help with cooling the vapor.

Well. That's it for now. Let me know if you have any questions!

I am still enjoying this vape quite a lot. Very easy to use and with the rubber it mates well and easily with glass. It might get too warm with more than one user at a time, but I usually get buzzed by myself at home. And @DDave's screens really do make it more usable. I hope they have learned from this accessory.

Did anyone tell Vivant where we are and give them a chance to come make this thread themselves? (also the title should probably just be "Vleaf Go" no? May want to put "by Vivant" in there too since they didn't get to start the thread?) Lot of other vivant threads need to be moved as well...

Show “Troy” the reviewer some love, his 20% OFF CODE, still works. Just ordered one from the Vivant site, $55.00 delivered. Figured it was too cheap to pass up.

What’s the diameter of the replacement screens that DDave sells, I got a bunch here that might fit in the cooler part?

I measured a Ti dDave screen at about 7mm diameter.

The original Vleaf Go post in oldFC was 60 days ago. I copy/pasted Vivant's exact title and post to start this one.

Have you contacted Vivant about moving their other product threads? Should I have done that prior to starting this thread?

Edit; I've trimmed my reply back a little bit.

Put the Go to the test yesterday.

-3 Hour drive, three packings, one charge after the 2nd, just cause I knew I had time. All yellow. Stirring and screen cleaning necessary but I had time.

-Got home, put it with a water pipe. 2 back to back packings. Red for both. Again, stirring and screen cleaning necessary but not a problem.

-Took a bike ride late evening and finished another packing on yellow. Couldn’t stir on the ride but was able to pull three nice ones before the screen got clogged.

Still impressed with what this $69 vape is doing for me.

I have been using mine daily for the last 5 days and haven't experience the screen getting clogged, yet. I just do a lightly tight pack and draw slow and that seems to help. I also keep mine on the lowest temp to enjoy the full flavor for as long as possible. @vivantvape, the one thing that would make this a really good vape would be a removable battery. Otherwise it is a good unit, charges quick, take anywhere. Love it and thank you for making a practical, indiscreet vape at a price people can afford and say Fuck Combustion.

The only extra power I might want to add is a second Go. I'm fine in lots of instances with internal batteries. There's always some risk of damage when the batteries get handled a lot. Last year a Li-ion battery vented in my dresser drawer and that was not a pretty sight. "Lucky" it was Grasshopper-size and not an 18650 or the story could have had a tragic ending.

I agree with the "lightly tight" pack and slow draw. I also think drier flower may clog less (per a recent discussion with @OF!). I'm not finding that stirring or poking is doing much. I tend to stay on green unless in a hurry, getting somewhere from 4 to 8 modest hits per, depending.

No I have not contacted them since I am not very active in the thread (same reason I haven't done so for Flowermate) so I was hoping someone else would... I think you should have before starting the thread here, just because they have been members on oldFC and are active, posting customer service, promotional news, and creating most of their threads... and yes I know this is the same title as it was there, but that's because they kinda posted it as an advertisement lol not exactly "FC standard" (if there ever was a standard) so I was hoping if a member started the thread they'd give it the regular plain title, but as always this is my own OCD!

While the manufacturer did not “start”, this new carry over thread, is there any reason they can’t participate exactly the same as on the old site?
No, ofcourse they can, HealthyRips was forced into the same situation, it just looks nicer when threads are created by manufacturers since you see the user who created the thread prominently in the list... And then threads don't need brand names in the titles either (this thread has neither though)

Geez SS, you make me feel like crap for trying to help community and Following the rules. BTW - HR hasn’t said anything in the Fury or Fierce threads, so not so sure they were “forced” into anything with me starting the Edge thread.
I am happy @vapviking started this thread so we can continue to talk about it in new place and get some SEO rankings so other people (outside of NFC) can start finding us.
Sorry to go off topic.

Sorry! Not my intent at all, I only meant it literally, with zero negative connotation. Also to be fair you were not even responsible for that, in fact it was a mod who prematurely started the threads here, you merely followed suit (and I certainly do not blame you for that!) I mean I don't blame anyone, this shit is complicated! Also none of it is a big deal of course, the brands and mods don't seem to mind.

But yeah sorry for off topic I just couldn't not respond to explain, now I feel bad for making you feel bad! We can take this to the moving threads thread... Moving threads from FC

To be honest, since we don’t know if the old site is going to be up for long, rather than waiting for the manufactures, information preserving might be of more importance 😅

Though there are probably thread administration tools available for the author only, I’m sure the admins can help with that if anything comes up

Sorry again this is so off topic now, but the domain is good through the summer at least, it's not like it's just going to stop working suddenly one day and be gone, they know the date it expires... Also the information has already been backed up by many people... The main reason for a manufacturer to create their thread, is merely superficial and organizational, most products threads do not have active manufacturers present at all. Just a little tricky when they are, but not super active, anyway the thread I linked is the place to discuss this further. I have reached out to many manufacturers myself, some of the ones we have not seen here yet, are just busy with other things (that's the case with DV, SBL, DW, 7thF)

Thanks for checking that for me. I saw a post from a user that put a Dynavap screen in, I measured my DV SS screen at 7mm. However, those DV screens might reduce airflow a bit more then a real weaved screen. Something to play with when I receive my unit. Thanks again.
