INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE MVT2
Disassembly of the MVT2 will void all warranties so don't take it apart, please! If you have any problems contact us asap and we will deal with it and help you have a great experience with the MVT2.
The battery can be installed with either the positive or negative pole facing up.
The negative side positioned facing up has the advantage of putting less wear on the battery wrap as the electrode only passes over a smooth surface.
Slide the door open to access the battery compartment. When closing the door it may ride up as it passes over the connector. This is normal just push it down after it is in the closed position.
Battery Door in "On" and "Off" positions.
To protect against accidental activation flip the battery door 180 degrees. In the picture the door with the grip notches towards the outside of the unit in Power On, by sliding the door out and rotating it so the grip notches are in is the Power Off condition.
The MVT2 is a beautiful hand crafted exotic wood unit with a vapor path of wood, stainless steel, glass and a bit of fine silver in the electrodes. The cool air in path is maple and silicone tubing.
The MVT2s heating element utilizes a stacked "double pancake" coil to ensure complete extraction of your material. The coil can be seen through the glass "port hole" on both sides.
The MVT2 is an un regulated device so YOU are in control of your draw throughout YOUR session. YOU control how large or small of a draw YOU take!
The MVT2 takes an 18650, flat top, high discharge battery. The following batteries have been tested with the MVT2. Make sure you get yours from a reputable source such as IMRbatteries.
LG HE4 2600mah - yellow ones
LG HG2 3000mah - brown ones
With the battery in place slide the door into position. The grooves in the top of the door go to the outside. When the door is slide shut it may lift up as it passes over the contact pin. If this happens just push the door down, totally normal.
Once the battery is installed we recommend that you hold the sensor button down and watch the coil. It will glow within about 8 seconds with a freshly charged battery.

The suggested stem fill should leave about 1/8" (3 mm) of free space in the stems bowl.
The way you pack the stem will have an effect on vaping efficiency. We suggest a medium fine grind and a packing that is uniform and lightly tamped.
Insert the stem into the glass joint in the MVT2 frame. If the joints stick apply lateral pressure on the stem then rotate the stem as you pull it out.
Depress the button for about five seconds then slowly draw while holding down the button. As you feel the heat start to feather the button, stick with cooler temps to start. Increase your draw to control the temperature, a harder draw will cool off the coil.
The first draw will "strip the terps" and give you unrivaled flavor, but little vapor.
Continue using this method and you will see the vapor increase.
During back to back draws you may cut down to 5 or even 4 seconds on the button as the chamber is now warm.
You should average 6-10 draws per stem depending on draw speed and button time. Results will vary, everyone has a different technique.
You will easily find the style that works best for you.
We include a stir tool and collar, see them in action

On the bottom of the unit is a small circular screen this is the air intake hole. You can block this hole with a finger if you wish, it generally isn't required. It can slow the air flow and effectively increase the temperature.
Two Screen Method
There are low profile cup screens that can be used in pairs. You insert one screen in the stem and then load the stem with herb. Once loaded you insert a second cup screen on top of the herb.
Using this technique you can maximize extraction by stirring the loaded herb every so often. To stir remove the top screen with a pin or paper clip, stir the load or even remove the load and then reload. Replace the top screen and you are ready.
This method using a bit more battery life but is especially convenient if you pre load stems and take them when you travel. You can pre load several stems and carry them along with you.
Never ever take the MVT2 apart. If you are having a problem let us know and we will help you with it.
The MVT2 is complicated in that it must be taken apart in sequence or you risk doing serious damage. Anything that fails in normal use we will fix so please contact us first.
The screen situated above the heater can be dislodged so be careful. We recommend a small brush to remove any debris, please no downward pressure on the screen.
The cup screen in the stem can be cleared with the provided stir tool. After much use the screen will need to be removed and cleaned. A round pen or pencil should fit the stem and can be used to push it out (insert the pen or pencil in the end you inhale from). The screen can be flame cleaned or soaked in alcohol.
The easiest way to load the stem is to use it like a straw and suck up whatever you are loading. Then you can gently tamp the load. Turn the stem over and make sure the material stays in place, if it does you are ready to go.
The MVT2 is treated with mineral oil and carnuba wax, this avoids toxic wood finishers. You can apply a little oil from time to time but be careful not to get oil into the heater chamber. If you get a lot of oil in the heater chamber it will be a real problem. Invert the MVT2 and let it sit overnight. Then fire up the heater and carefulyl burn off the oil. Since the oil may ignite have a damp cloth ready.
