Vapor Genie Aluminum Bat is the world’s first bat-styled vaporizer which uses a patented high purity inert silicon carbide ceramic flame filter, made of silicon and carbon. The Vapor Genie Bat is CNC machined from a solid block of aluminum steel, and consists of 2 pieces for portability. The flame filter acts as a heat transport where heat and cool air are combined to create vapors! The Vapor Genie Bat will not be clogged with tar, because very little tar is produced by vaporization! Vapor Genies flame filter does not burn or deteriorate, since it doesn’t contain metals, thus eliminating replacement! Nevertheless, for added filtration, Vapor Genie uses a 316 aluminum mesh screen - the most chemically inert alloy of aluminum. Simply, grab both opposite ends of the Bat; twist apart the portion of the Bat containing the flame filter, and to unveil the herb bowl. Loosely pack the bowl with grounded herbs, combine both pieces back together, and apply flame while inhaling to create vapors. The Vapor Genie Bat is very easy to clean.
