In for review is the Dynavap M Plus vaporizer.

I have been very excited about this! The reason being – that I actually own and regularly use an older Dynavap model!

Mine is the Dynavap M 2020 – which I am including in some of the images in this review so you can see the differences between this and the upgraded M Plus.

Sorry for the state of my M 2020 – I have had to resort to using a standard cigarette lighter on it in the past so there is some soot accumulation.

I will explain a lot more as the review progresses!

Dynavap were founded by George Breiwa and the first Dynavap vaporizer was released in 2015 – called the “VapCap”.

They state on their website…

“DynaVap proudly designs, engineers, and manufactures all of our vaporizers in-house using the highest quality materials available.”

I would like to thank Joshua Seraj from Tools420 who sent this over to me for review, he is an absolute star!

I will record my findings on the device in my possession. Your experiences may vary!

Let’s get going then hey!

What To Expect From The Dynavap M Plus …


The design has evolved from the original Dynavap M up to this model the M Plus in 2023.

dynavap m range

This is a dry herb vaporizer for herbs (not just the stuff that’s illegal here in the UK!) Many people swear by using ‘legal’ herbs such as Mint, Lavender and even Catnip for aromatherapy purposes. Have a search online to see what benefits vaping on certain herbs may have 😉

Myself nor anyone at EcigClick is suggesting you vape on anything that may be illegal in your country…

In case you are wondering what on earth this device is – well it is basically a type of pipe – but you do not burn any material. You actually just heat it to the right temperature for the herbs to release the vapour – the flame never touches the actual material, it just heats the surroundings. Therefore you are not inhaling toxic burnt matter and the taste and vapour is much purer.

Think of it as putting your food in a pan and heating it, rather than directly on top of a flame where it would burn.

Also this is far more efficient meaning you use less material yet still get the same effects.


The main components are the stem, tip and the cap.

mplus components

However it can be dismantled further.

The main stem is made from Stainless Steel with an internal tube structure (condenser) and tip which can be removed for cleaning. The components are secured in position using O-rings.

Part of the stem is a mouthpiece which is tapered so it can be used with adaptors for adding to bubbler or bong style assemblies.

On the top face is the square airflow inlet – which you can cover to open or restrict the airflow as you please.

At the base of the tip is the chamber. You add your dry herbs into here and they sit on the CCD (Circumferential Compression Diffuser) mesh screen.

A serrated edge is provided around the chamber to help grind up the material as you replace the cap.

Then you install the cap to the tip of the device. Here you will then use a flame or induction heater to heat up the cap section. This will click when the correct temperature has been reached. It is a case of inhaling the vapour until the cap clicks again and it is time for reheating!

The click occurs at 350°F / 177°C but you can buy a cap for lower temperatures. Plus there are “Armoured Caps” available which take longer to heat but will retain the heat longer.

Here is an introduction video from Dynavap which covers the design aspects and updates.

Further Information

In fact there is a whole playlist of videos for you to watch which details the whole evolution of the “M” range. You can find it on the DynaVap channel on YouTube here.

Plus there are plenty of video tutorials on their channel too – check them out here.

There are many accessories you can purchase to customise the M Plus including the Dynacoil (to convert for concentrate use) and alternative mouthpieces.

Also you can buy all the spares you will need! Starting from replacement CCD screens (in Titanium or Stainless Steel), O-rings and Cleaning kits to all the main components of the device. So you could keep it going for years in theory – just replacing parts as required. Just like “Triggers Broom” or the “Ship of Theseus“.

Let’s see if this device can sit with some of the best vaporizers for dry herb.

Dynavap M Plus Design and Build Quality

The kit only contains the device itself and its components. There are no spares or instructions included. However as covered above in the “Further Information” section there are plenty of instructional videos to help get you started.

The packaging is extremely minimal – compare it with the packaging of the 2020 version. I do prefer the 2020 version. But it is what it is, it protects the device during transit and works in the way it should!

This is a solid but very lightweight device and it fits in the hand nicely.

It is a similar size to a standard cigarette but is obviously a bit heavier!

Everything feels extremely well made and if it is anywhere near as good as my trusty M 2020 – you should have no quality issues at all.

Plus the fact there is so very little to go wrong – you will only be really performing standard maintenance such as cleaning!

As described above the main stem has a “Bark like” texture to aid with grip.

There has been a modification to the mouthpiece to enable it to connect to other devices, but at a glance there is not much to notice.

As you can see the airflow inlet has had a big redesign from the spooky eye inlets on the 2020 to the Square window on the Plus.

Looking at the tip design, as you can see this no longer has the fins you see on the 2020 version, plus there are more serrations to help grind up the material.

You will also notice the punched markings which denote the area to aim the heat for the strongest performance.

Inside the tip is the chamber. This has increased in size for the M Plus. Looking inside the chamber you can see the CCD screen.

The weird protrusion on the rear of the device is actually a kind of pivot. It is worth noting the “M” machining marks around the pivot – very nice attention to detail!

If you hold the Dynavap M Plus like a cigarette, that allows you to pivot and rock the device between your fingers to restrict the airflow inlet to suit your preference. Also it helps with holding it in the correct place to access the airflow.

Inside the cap is the serial number and the date of manufacture.

The cap feels very thin and flimsy you can actually bend it with your fingers. However this is useful in two ways as – 1) it heats up quicker and 2) if the cap is loose on the tip you can slightly squeeze it to make it a tighter fit. When the cap is boiling hot, the last thing you want is it falling off and burning someone or something. So I would suggest you make sure the cap is not loose before heating.

I did try swapping the caps between both my devices and they were compatible with both.

The prong on the cap is actually a great functional bonus, you can use it as a scoop to clean out the spent material in the chamber.dynavap m plus cap scoop

Quick Start Guide

There is no user manual included in the kit – but you can view one online here from Tools420.

Basic Operation

Once you get the hang of it – this device is one of the simplest vaporizers you can buy!

How To Fill

  • Remove the cap.
  • Hold the stem with the chamber section pointing upwards.
  • Add the ground or small pieces of material into the chamber.
  • Replace the cap whilst rotating to help chop up any larger pieces.
  • Check the cap will not fall off. You do not want it falling when hot. If it is slightly loose – remove the cap and give it a gentle squeeze and it should be a tighter fit on the tip.

How To Heat

Use a Butane Torch style lighter or an induction heater.

You can use a regular cigarette lighter if you are stuck but it will take longer to heat and it will leave sooty deposits on the cap. I know as I have had to resort to this myself in the past!

Induction Heater Method

An induction heater works on the same principle as an induction hob. This uses the magnetic field created by the device cap and inductor which creates a current to create heat.

dynavap M Plus induction

With an induction heater you insert the cap end of the whole device into the heating port and remove when you hear the cap make a loud “snap” noise. This noise denotes that the required temperature has been reached.

Note: there is sometimes a quiet “click” noise prior to the louder “snap”. This is also the same when it is cooling down.

Using A Torch Lighter

If using a lighter, the area you heat is important.

Dynavap M Plus heating zone guide

If you want a gentle hit, aim the flame towards the bottom end of the cap.

For a slightly stronger hit move the flame nearer the top of the cap towards the tip.

I have included a video of myself heating up the Dynavap M Plus below as a guide.

For those who want the strongest hit, there are dots marked on the tip of the device to give you an area which you should aim the heat at. This may result in the whole chamber contents being used up in one go – so is not the best setting for longevity of your material or newbies! I found this area to give a harsh output!

To put it simply – the rule I follow is the nearer you get to the main stem the hotter the material will get. If you aim towards the end of the cap it will be cooler.

Rotate as you are heating and a loud “snap” from the cap will indicate when the material is at the right temperature.

Note: there is sometimes a quiet “click” noise prior to the louder “snap”. This is also the same when it is cooling down.

Time To Vape

At this point you can inhale the vapour through the mouthpiece and cover the inlet port as much or little as you want to tailor the airflow.

Listen out for another “Snap” noise and this will indicate the device has dropped below the optimum temperature and it is time to heat it again.

Keep using until the flavour or vapour tails off and you can clean out the chamber and add new material.

How Does the Dynavap M Plus Perform?

Obviously the quality of flavour will depend on the material you are using.

I used my Honest dual flame torch lighter to heat up my Dynavap M Plus.

Torch lighter

I tried heating in all 3 different areas.

Using the lower temperature heating area I got the flavour of my herb but not much vapour and it was quite cool.

Moving the torch up to the area where the cap ends by the tip – this was perfect for me. Again not loads of vapour but the flavour was strong and I got a great throat hit. Also I could get a longer inhale on this setting.

Using the high temperature area denoted by the markings on the tip – was a bit too much for me! It basically used up all the contents of the chamber in one heat cycle and it was hot and made me cough! This setting is for the hardcore only! I am too much of a lightweight!

I found I got 2 good long inhales per heat up.

You may think you are not inhaling anything as it is very smooth. Sometimes this might catch you out as you take very long draws thinking it is not working, then suddenly cough up your bum hole. So I suggest just taking it easy to start with. You will feel and taste that it has been working when it comes to exhaling.

As for the airflow, I found instead of partially covering the hole when inhaling, I would open and close it rapidly. If I felt there was not much vapour I would open the airflow hole and if it was getting a bit strong I would close it.


  • The Dynavap devices are the simplest vaporizers you can buy
  • You are only inhaling vapour – not combusted material so it is less toxic
  • No coils or elements to keep buying and replacing.
  • Maintenance very low apart from cleaning.
  • Can be used anywhere and easy to carry
  • Minimal components so there is little to go wrong
  • Spare parts are easily available
  • No longer need to buy tobacco, rolling papers etc to consume dry herbs
  • Extremely sturdy
  • Quick heat up time – quicker than the M 2020
  • No electricity needed
  • You can purchase custom cases for use out and about
  • Adaptors and customisable extras are available
  • More efficient use of your dry herb material


  • No instructions included – but there are plenty of guides online.
  • A metal mouthpiece is not the nicest thing to put on your lips.
  • Slightly expensive – but still cheaper than a lot of electronic vaporizers

Dynavap M Plus Final Review Verdict

Yes these are pricey devices. However for those who want to enjoy dry herbs without the burning, tobacco or even having to roll up – this is a perfect solution.

I got my first Dynavap last year, as I had given up smoking and having to still buy and use tobacco for my dry herbs felt like I was defeating the object of quitting smoking! Not to mention the taste of tobacco was no longer something I enjoyed.

The Dynavap for me meant I could ditch tobacco completely, which also saved me a lot of money too!

There is a slight learning curve to operation which is not aided by a lack of instruction leaflet. There are plenty of videos and instructions online though. After a few attempts you will nail it and it will become second nature in no time.

Personally for me the price was worth every penny for my M 2020, and I would spend my own money for the M Plus too – they are such a clever idea.

The simplicity of the assembly means there is very little to go wrong and if there is an issue you can dismantle and buy all the spare parts easily.

It is not as delicate or clumsy as using bongs or glass style devices. Plus it is obviously way more portable.

Not to mention no longer inhaling burnt matter.

Buying and using the Dynavap M range has been nothing but positive for me. I still love my M 2020 but the M Plus has the edge with the quicker heat up time.
