    Evoke - Induction powered vaping thoughts?

    Anyone smarter than me want to give me some thoughts on this.

    Hmmm .. Interesting


    I've spent far more than that on vaping ... But I like to think of the positives
    Actually I don't think that's true anymore .. Savings now exceed spending .. Sweet !
    Innokin SVD (dead), MVP v2 and itaste VV3 (dead), several eGo's, EHpro Kayfun Lite Plus, Aerotank Mega, Aspire Nautilus, ET-s, Mini Nova-s, CE5 BDCs .. So far

    Looks like most of the kickstarter/indiegogo projects out there. Slick videos and a mockup without a working prototype or any definite roadmap of how to get from gosh-wow concept to actual shipping product.

    Wick is iron mesh. How will that affect the flavour?
    Will it rust? Will wicks be cheap enough to toss when you change flavours?

    It won't have interchangable atomizers so you can.t have multiple flavours on the go. Much like a Hybrid vape.

    One button interface and no display with all control being done via smartphone. Really?

    No changable driptip so if you don't like the mouthfeel, tough.

    As for looks It's designed more along the lines of something you'd see in a woodwind ensemble at a renaissance fair than a modern vaporizer.

    One thing to keep in mind is that vaping devices now available are up to about generation 6.

    Because of that I wish them luck, but I for one will be waiting for generation two to have positive reviews before buying.

    It's kind of cool. I don't know if I would buy it to use for juice, but if I was wanting a vapourizer for dry things, I'd consider it. I hope they make it work, it sounds awesome.
    Words are fun.
    Steam powered and smoke free since January 2013.
    Addiction is bad, let me explain it to you after I finish this coffee.

    I think it would be very power hungry and chew through batteries. and is just a pipe dream for the short term

    Another electro-magnetic field to stick up to your head. Think I'll just stick to my induction cooktop.

    Cool concept but induction power is inherently inefficient. That means it would take a lot of power to heat the wick from a short distance to the required temperature.

    Also the "red hot" claim in traditional coils is wrong. If the wick is dry the resistance wire goes red hot but not when it's juiced... So I'm also skeptical.

    My thoughts exactly. Also the wick will still gunk up whether it is being heated directly or indirectly.

    Still it's good people are thinking about dofferent ways of doing things.
