BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The invention relates generally to smoking accessories, and in particular to a solar-powered multi-purpose vaporizer. The electric vaporizer, or e-cigarette, has significantly reduced the risks of second-hand smoke for millions of Americans. As the use of e-liquid increases as a delivery vehicle for the use of nicotine, the use of other smoking oils, herbs, and waxes is also increasing. The medicinal use of marijuana has been legalized in 23 states, including New York and California, and its recreational use is legal in two states. For people using more than one type of these substances, the many different smoking implements can take up space and be difficult to keep sorted. Also, keeping them supplied with batteries can become a chore. A solar-powered multi-purpose vaporizer, capable of operating on solar power alone and smoking many types of smoking oils, herbs, and waxes, would resolve these problems.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
Accordingly, the invention is directed to a solar-powered multi-purpose vaporizer. The vaporizer is shaped like a ballpoint pen, with a solar panel on the top surface which may be used to recharge the battery. Two internal chambers are provided. The outer chamber may be used for smoking herbs, waxes, and oils, and provides a plastic screen to prevent messes. The inner chamber may be used to store one half gram of dried smoking herbs, waxes, or oils ready for use.
Additional features and advantages of the invention will be set forth in the description which follows, and will be apparent from the description, or may be learned by practice of the invention. The foregoing general description and the following detailed description are exemplary and explanatory and are intended to provide further explanation of the invention.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
Referring now to the invention in more detail, the invention is directed to a solar-powered multi-purpose vaporizer 10.
The first exemplary embodiment is comprised of a vaporizer 10 which is preferably shaped like a ballpoint pen, and is preferably 4.5 inches in length. The vaporizer 10 provides a solar panel 11 on the top surface which may be used to recharge the battery. Two chambers are provided. The outer chamber 12 may be used for smoking herbs, waxes, and oils, and provides a plastic screen 12A to separate the smoking herbs, waxes, and oils from the atomizer 16. The inner chamber 13 may be used to store about one half gram of dried smoking herbs, ready for use. The atomizer 16 is located between the inner chamber 12 and outer chamber 13. The inner chamber may optionally be separated from the outer chamber 12 and atomizer 16 by a buffer piece; the buffer piece would provide an additional thermal barrier between the stored material in the inner chamber 13 and the heated materials in the outer chamber 12A.
A cap 12B on the outer chamber 12 contains the battery. The atomizer is located at the center of the vaporizer 10, near the screen 12A. Optionally, the atomizer may provide an automatic shutoff mechanism which deactivates the atomizer after a pre-determined period of continuous use, such as six minutes. Due to its double chambered construction, the vaporizer 10 is virtually odorless and the outer surface remains cool to the touch.
To use the first exemplary embodiment, the user may store smoking herbs in the outer chamber 12 and transfer them to the inner chamber 13 for smoking. The user presses the activator button 15 to activate the atomizer 16. The heat from the atomizer 16 vaporizes the smoking herbs in the inner chamber 13. The user then may inhale the vapor through the mouthpiece 14. Alternately, the user may smoke oils or waxes, using the screen 12A to separate the oil or wax within the inner chamber 13 from the atomizer 16.
The vaporizer 10 is preferably manufactured from rigid, durable materials which are heat and corrosion resistant, such as stainless steel, aluminum alloy, brass, and copper alloy. Components and methods listed above are preferable, but artisans will recognize that alternate components and methods could be selected without altering the scope of the invention.
While the foregoing written description of the invention enables one of ordinary skill to make and use what is presently considered to be the best mode thereof, those of ordinary skill in the art will understand and appreciate the existence of variations, combinations, and equivalents of the specific embodiment, method, and examples herein. The invention should, therefore, not be limited by the above described embodiment, method, and examples, but by all embodiments and methods within the scope and spirit of the invention.A solar-powered multi-purpose vaporizer contains chambers for smoking herbs, waxes and oils. The vaporizer is shaped like a ballpoint pen, with a solar panel on the top surface which may be used to re

Introduction: Make a Solar Smoking Vaporizer
This is the first solar powered vaporizer for flamelessly burning of herbs, tobacco, or even medical marihuana, or legal pot if you live in Colorado or Washington state.
Why pay your hard earned bucks for a throwaway plastic overpriced vape, when your solar one will do the job indefinitely, and also perform many other functions.
I like to play with my satellite solar dish (a standard tv dish covered with mylar or reflective material), and come up with new and novel ways of using it.
A TV dish is one of those ‘after collapse’ tools you can make if you have one on your roof, or can find one on a neighbor’s house.
MIne is 38″ wide by 28 inches high, and will heat a chunk of iron to about 600 degrees.
It also makes the perfect heat source for vaping your cannabis.
1. Simply pop a bud or two into your inhaling jar. The jar can be a clear 12 ounce juice bottle which has been cleaned and the label scraped off with a razor blade.
The hole in the cork is just to keep the pressure from building up. Probably not really needed.
Step 1: Step 2
2. Place the bud and jar into the focal point, and in about 3 seconds your bud will be putting out some smoke. Simply wait until the jar fills, and then inhale and hold the remaining smoke in with your thumb. (do not leave the jar in the focal point any longer than about 15 or 20 seconds, as it may get hot enough to shatter. If you don’t get smoke by then, you’re not at the focal point.)
Bet you can’t inhale the whole thing.
Note this is only legal in approved jurisdictions, and while you can also smoke tobacco in it (gave it up for my health), I do not recommend or advocate that you use it as a solar crack pipe or for any other illegal, illicit, or immoral means. This is for educational purposes only.
