DynaVap M vs OmniVap: What’s the Difference?

The DynaVap M and OmniVap sit at opposite ends of the VapCap spectrum, but they share some key features.

DynaVap’s unique VapCap vaporizers cover a wide spectrum of features and price points, and the DynaVap VapCap M and OmniVap represent the most modest, and the most feature-packed, they have to offer.

Both are great options, and even though they fall at opposite ends of the DynaVap price spectrum, they share some of their best qualities, including vapor quality and portability. If you’re wondering which is right for you, our DynaVap M vs Omni will help you find the perfect vape.

Similar vapor quality

Whether you opt for the M or one of the Omni variants, you can expect the same great vapor quality. The higher-end DynaVap offerings typically add in features, materials, and finishes, but the underlying tech is nearly identical. That said, you may be able to produce better results using the Omni, mostly thanks to its adjustable resistance.

Adjustable airflow on the Omni

The biggest difference between the M and Omni is the mouthpiece. Omni variations of the DynaVap twist in and out, which changes the resistance of your draw. You can set it right where you like, then leave it forever, or change it up based on your current preferred method. You can adjust the airflow on the M by covering more or less of the hole on the side, and if you want to set it semi-permanently, check out our tips and tricks guide.

Adjustable bowl

By default, all of the DynaVap vaporizers hold about 0.1 grams of ground herb, which may not sound like much, but is a great size for a personal session. The M has a fixed oven size, but the other models have three different positions for the screen, allowing you to shrink that as low as 0.02 grams.

Material choice

The M is housed in a simple stainless steel body, with light ridges near the tip, and an indented line around the outside to indicate the location of the airport. The Omni, on the other hand, is available in a variety of materials and colors. The OmniVong line boasts elegant wood bodies, with the added benefit of mating directly with your glass waterpipe. The OmniVap looks more like the M, with straight titanium bodies that have special designs crafted into them.

Modular design

The M comes out of the box ready to go, and stays that way. You can disassemble the individual pieces for cleaning and maintenance, but they only go back together one way. The other DynaVap VapCaps have interchangeable parts, so you can easily stick a wood body on your OmniVap, or upgrade your NonaVong to an adjustable Omni mouthpiece. There are even members of the community out there that use the VapCap as a base for elegant and eye-catching custom designs.

Price

All those extra features come at a cost. The entry-level M is just CAD$95, making it one of the most affordable vaporizers we sell. It’s a no-frills option, with a stainless steel body and easy to clean parts, and it’s a great option for trying out the VapCap to see if it’s for you.

The Omni, on the other hand, indicates a line of a vaporizers that start at $160, and reach $190 for the full titanium kits. That may seem like a steep price jump, but it brings in a swath of new features, plus swappable parts, and there are other VapCap offerings in between without the adjustable mouthpiece, like the NonaVong.

Final thoughts

The DynaVap M is a great manual vaporizer with impressive value, and if you’ve never owned a VapCap before, we suggest you start there. The OmniVap line, and the other more expensive DynaVap vapes, have a variety of features that advanced users will want, but you’ll know better which to buy after spending some time with the M.
