The X VAPE Vista Mini 2’s variety of features and competitive pricing makes it a solid contender in the portable e-nail scene. Whether this is your first time with dabs or you’re a seasoned pro, we’ll get you up and running with our quickstart guide.

Before use: Charge it up
The Vista Mini 2 comes out of the box with a partial charge, but we recommend topping off before your first use. If you have a wireless charger available, just throw on top and let it do its thing. Otherwise, plug it in with the included micro-usb cable. A red blinking light indicates the battery is low, green is about 50%, and white means you’re in the final half. The blinking charge light will go out when it is fully charged.
Fill the bubbler
Each bubbler has a certain water level sweet spot for best performance. Instead of making you do all the guesswork, X VAPE did the work for you, and placed a red fill line on the bubbler. Once the Vista Mini 2 is charged, fill the bubbler through the mouthpiece connection up to this line!
Give it a test run
We normally recommend a burnoff session with dry herb vaporizers, but there’s no need for that here. Instead, we just want to confirm everything is connected properly and working before you load your first dab. Start by connecting one of your atomizers. Find one in the case, and screw it clockwise on top of the Vista Mini 2.
Triple click the power button to turn it on. The button should blink three times, and the bubbler will light up to the color of the temperature selected. Press the button once to activate the heater, and let it run until the heater below the quartz dish glows orange.
Choose your temp
The Vista Mini 2 provides four preset temperatures for different users. We suggest beginners start on white or green, for a relaxing, but flavorful experience. You can always bump it up later. If you’re used to the high temp, punchiness of a traditional torch and banger, set it to blue or red. Double click the button to scroll through the four temperatures.
Drop and glob!
Before we activate the heater, let’s load your dab. For this first session, scrape, tear, or scoop a rice-grain sized amount of your chosen material and place it in the atomizer. Make sure it lands on the bottom of the quartz dish, and not the sides.
Once you’re ready to rock n roll, press the button once to activate the heater and the bubbler light will blink. When it vibrates, the bubbler light will turn solid, and you’re clear for take off! Take a nice, relaxed draw and watch the vapor flow through the bubbler. The Vista Mini 2 will shut off automatically after 35 seconds, but you can end it sooner by clicking the button once. If the session ends and you want more, click the button again and it will fire back up.
If there is still oil in the heating coil, it can stay there for a later session. Next time, load a little less - try to load only what you will use in one session, and your concentrates will last longer and taste better
We’ll release a full cleaning guide very soon, but it’s a good idea to get in the habit of a quick and simple cleaning after each session. After you’re finished with each load, take a dry cotton swab and wipe out the heating coil, while the oils are still warm but not hot. If you don’t clean out these oils, they will build up in the corners and burn.
