Affordability meets perform within the newest Vie Vaporizer. Once we say reasonably priced, we actually imply reasonably priced AF! Proper now you’ll be able to decide up considered one of these Vie vaporizers for underneath $50 for a restricted time. Based mostly on the worth alone we made a couple of assumptions concerning the Vie, fortunately we have been very improper on most fronts and it surpassed our expectations. Let’s dig in slightly additional.
The Vie vaporizer has a restricted time worth of solely $49.89, down from the unique $99.89. Usually once we take a look at vaporizers round this worth level we anticipate nasty plastic flavors to leech into the vapor, or an general low cost feeling unit. Vie provided a surprisingly clear tasting vapor, void of any plastic aroma or taste. So far as construct high quality the Vie doesn’t disappoint. Sure it makes use of plastic liberally, however there’s no rattling elements or “low cost” feeling elements. It actually does a fantastic job for the being as reasonably priced as it’s.

Firstly and most significantly, how does the Vie carry out? Properly, the vapor high quality itself was actually unbelievable, up there with some $200+ fashions unquestionably. So far as the precise perform of the vaporizer, I wasn’t as happy as I might have hoped.
The Vie activates with a number of fast clicks of the button, and you may select between the four temperature settings utilizing a really tiny button on the underside of the vaporizer. I discovered the pre-set temperature choices a bit disappointing although, the bottom temperature was too low, and the bounce between settings was too huge. There wasn’t an ideal temperature for my private choice (often between 375° – 385°). It appeared the second pre-set temperature was properly above this, and I didn’t dare enterprise into the third or 4th choice as I might reserve these for concentrates.
So far as truly utilizing the Vie, after the primary few clicks to get the unit as much as temperature, I needed to click on the button each time I needed to take a puff after the primary 2 minutes or so. It needed to as soon as once more attain temperature (far faster I’ll admit), making an extended session fairly a bit of labor. With no display to watch the present temperature it makes it a little bit of a guessing recreation to correctly use the Vie until you’re solely having a puff or two at a time.
The capsule system that Vie carried out is unbelievable! Except for the minor nuisance of loading the capsules, they carry out extraordinarily properly and are subsequent degree handy. Load one of many chrome steel capsule tubes with as much as three pre-loaded capsules and shortly swap out used ones with recent ones in a matter of moments. I discovered the warmth distribution was greater than satisfactory, the herb was evenly toasted all through the capsules without having for a stir or flip.
Reasonably priced because it will get through the restricted time worth level of $49.98, with out being low cost or foul tasting.
Vapor high quality was incredible regardless of not having the most effective vary of temperature choices.
The capsule know-how is just superior. I’d wish to see each vaporizer firm any further implement one thing like this. With the ability to tote round pre-loaded capsules which you can shortly load is massively useful for a transportable vaporizer.
Utilizing the Vie for lengthy periods is a bit annoying contemplating you’ll need to click on the button to reheat the unit between nearly each puff.
Loading the capsules is a bit messy. Whereas the paper funnels do assist clear issues up fairly a bit, I’ve to imagine I’ll misplace or spoil them after a couple of months of use.
Both higher pre-set temperature controls or full management over the temperature can be a welcome addition to the Vie.
I used to be completely impressed with the Vie regardless of the few points I had with it. When you think about the truth that this vaporizer prices lower than $50 (for a restricted time) it’s troublesome to fault it for something in any respect. The vapor high quality is implausible, so what else might you probably anticipate / need for beneath 50 bucks?
The Vie vaporizer is an ideal low-cost vaporizer for on-the-go vaporizer fanatics because of the capsule know-how.
Supply Vapes has gone and executed it once more! Their Supply Orb four Signature Package is a massively upgraded model of the Supply Orb four that we had reviewed earlier.

You’ll nonetheless get the VAS that permits you to customise the airflow with 5 totally different settings. The distinction is that the whole lot secures onto a field mod with full temperature management and an simply replaceable 18650 battery. That being stated, the Orb four Signature Package is twice the worth of the unique Orb four bundle. Personally, I feel it’s worthwhile in the event you’re an avid vaporizer consumer.
Supply Orb four Signature Package Assessment
Very first thing’s first, the Supply Orb four Signature Package will set you again a cool $199.95 which is a good bit in comparison with different focus vaporizers.

The distinction in worth comes right down to the inclusion of the Supply Volt Max full temperature management field mod that comes with the Signature Package.

The field mod could be very modern and easy, flat black with an influence button and two temperature management buttons with a simple to learn digital display on the entrance. The battery compartment is definitely accessible because of a magnetic cap, and the entire thing feels very strong with no rattle or low cost feeling elements.
When you’re not acquainted with the Supply Orb four attachment, it’s a futuristic wanting atomizer chamber with a inbuilt airflow system that may be custom-made (VAS). A magnetic lid permits customers to simply entry the atomizer to load materials or swap out atomizers. Full metallic development makes it rock strong feeling, I wouldn’t fear about breaking any element of the Orb four Signature Package even with tough use.
The Signature Package cures one among my solely points with the unique Supply Orb four package which was the battery element itself. Now it has full metallic development and is way simpler to customise each the temperature and general draw because of an elevated 15-second auto shut off function (up from 10). The temperature vary may be dialed in from 200° F to 700° F, good for low temperature / excessive taste pulls to the excessive temperature e-rig pulls that ship monster clouds.
Full metallic development and securely becoming elements makes the Supply Orb four Signature Package vaporizer really feel like an excellent excessive finish piece. Fortunately it additionally features like one!
Between the variable airflow and the actual temperature management, you possibly can dial in your excellent vaporizing expertise in a matter of moments.
I used to be impressed with the 15-second auto shut off timer because the 10-second one appeared a bit brief.
9 Business main atomizers permit customers the last word freedom to decide on the one which works greatest with their desired supplies. Did we point out that you simply get 9 atomizers?!
Whereas I consider the Signature Package is properly well worth the worth for many vaporizer lovers, if it’s your first concentrate-only vaporizer you may need to go for the cheaper mannequin as an alternative.
One factor concerning the Supply Vapes vaporizers that we’ve observed is that none of them include an instruction booklet. The Signature Package field mod provides some very helpful pre-set temperature settings, however determining methods to use the field mod takes a while and loads of fiddling.
Supply Vapes has knocked our socks off with this Signature Package for his or her Supply Orb four. It’s simply our favourite concentrate-only vaporizer. The worth is a bit eye-watering, however in case you worth high quality and performance over all else, it’s the one selection that is sensible.
Moveable e-nails have grow to be a staple within the focus group, nevertheless most of them are eerily just like one and different. Supply Vapes determined to shake issues up with their Supply Nail XL, and we’re fairly stoked about it. It might appear to be most different e-nails at first look, however there’s a number of key variations that basically set it aside from the others.
Supply Nail XL Assessment
The Supply Nail XL will value you a cool $149.95, which is about commonplace for many e-rigs available on the market. In contrast to different e-nails that include a nail attachment, the Supply Nail XL truly comes with Three totally different atomizers which make it extra of a hybrid vaporizer pen / e-rig. For those who’ve had an opportunity to take a look at a few of our different Supply Vape evaluations you’ll know that we’re huge followers of their atomizers, so with the ability to use them of their e-rig is a large bonus!
Discovered within the field:
Supply Nail XL
Quartz bucket coil-less atomizer
Ceramic bucket coil-less atomizer
Titanium bucket coil-less atomizer
Cut up glass bubbler attachment
Glass globe attachment
Magnetic carb cap
Titanium tipped dab device
Let me clear up what I meant once I stated the Supply Nail XL was a hybrid vaporizer pen / e-rig. Supply Vapes made the Supply Nail XL suitable with their collection Three / four / XL atomizers. Whereas the bucket atomizers they supply with the e-rig carry out primarily the identical as a standard nail discovered on comparable moveable e-rigs, they appear fairly totally different from different nails. I’d hesitate to even name them nails actually, however that’s not a nasty factor.
When utilizing the glass globe attachment the Supply Nail XL is reworked from a transportable dab rig into extra of a vaporizer pen. I’d recommend turning the temperature down a notch when utilizing the globe as a result of the vapor is a bit harsher.
Working the Supply Nail XL is pretty straight ahead because of the 1-button design. Holding the button down will warmth the system up (like most on-demand vaporizer pens), or double click on the button to set the gadget to preheat to the set temperature setting.
The Supply Nail XL doesn’t include any focus containers, which appears somewhat odd… As an alternative, Supply Vapes constructed a silicone lined compartment into the underside of the e-rig so you’ll be able to simply retailer and transport your concentrates with out having to hold round additional containers. It’s a function that we fell in love with on their Supply Slim four vaporizer pen, and I used to be thrilled to see it featured on their e-rig as nicely.
The cut up glass bubbler attachment is nearly the very same design because the Dr Dabber Increase. We weren’t the most important followers of the Increase’s glass attachment as a result of water would typically discover it’s approach into your mouth when hauling. Supply Vapes appears to have remedied (for probably the most half) the state of affairs by splitting the glass attachment into 2-pieces. The actual purpose they cut up the glass attachment into 2-pieces is to permit customers to hook the rig as much as their favourite 18-mm waterpipe.
Supply Vapes goes above and past relating to the standard of the supplies they use and the construct high quality of their merchandise as an entire. Their atomizers are prime notch and supply a number of the tastiest pulls out there, and that is true of all of the SV vaporizers we’ve examined out. My solely actual beef with the Supply Nail XL is the best way you use it, and it’s solely an ‘concern’ when utilizing it as an e-rig with the bubbler portion hooked up. It simply feels a bit of bit an excessive amount of like a vaporizer pen for my liking, however that would very properly be what they have been aiming for. General I’m completely impressed with the Supply Nail XL and can gladly sit with the button depressed so as to get some high quality vapor rips.
You get fairly a bit on your cash in comparison with different moveable e-rigs available on the market.
The Supply Nail XL is sort of versatile because of the cut up glass bubbler and glass globe choices.
Whereas I gave the 1-button operation a little bit of flak earlier, there’s no denying that it’s very straightforward to function proper out of the field because of the simple design.
Smoooooth & tasty rips. When it comes right down to it, it’s all concerning the high quality of the vapor. Because of the SV atomizers and Three-temperature settings it’s straightforward to get unbelievable tasting vapor repeatedly.
The bubbler attachment will undoubtedly splash some water into your mouth every so often. That is true of nearly each e-rig bubbler attachment although, so it’s exhausting to fault SV for this.
Three temperature settings is nice, however I’ve but to seek out something that tells me precisely what temperature every of the settings makes use of. Not likely a deal breaker, however it will be good to know.
As somebody who enjoys concentrates (perhaps not fairly as a lot as a superb o’l joint) I’d be misplaced with out an e-rig by my aspect. There’s a couple of nice decisions on the market, and the Supply Nail XL is definitely among the best.
Buy your e-rig from Supply Vapes and relaxation straightforward figuring out that the supplies used are high quality. Get some critical bang in your buck and decide your self up a Supply Nail XL at present… assuming you’re out there for one.
BlackoutX just lately despatched us a package deal containing a number of the greatest vaporizers they’ve to supply, the top of which is the Prem31r three in a single vaporizer. In the event you’re out there for an reasonably priced vaporizer that does all of it, then this can be a great spot to start out your search. Let’s get into every little thing the Prem31r from BlackoutX has to supply.
Prem31r Vaporizer Assessment
Certainly, one of many largest promoting factors for the Prem31r Vaporizer from BlackoutX is the extraordinarily low worth level of solely $79.95. The worth means little or no if the vaporizer itself doesn’t supply a lot, fortunately this isn’t the case. The Prem31r permits you to simply vaporizer herbs, oils and waxes utilizing their convection heating system. It boasts a 2-hour working time because of the 2200 mAh battery and a glossy carbon fiber exterior.
Discovered within the field:
Rubber mouthpiece x2
Wax vaporizing container x2
Tweezers (for wax container)
One factor I’d wish to level out instantly on the subject of the heating type of the Prem31r is that it’s not completely convection. Actually I consider it’s principally a conduction vaporizer. Many “convection” vaporizers available on the market are comparable, it’s uncommon to discover a true convection vaporizer in moveable fashions, particularly when they’re this small. That being stated, I used to be completely impressed with how evenly the warmth was distributed all through the oven chamber. No want to combine the herb up midway via, merely pack it, warmth it and hit it.
Cycle between 375° F, 410° F and 445° F warmth settings with ease. The entire unit could be very easy to function, it has a 1-button operation and the highest merely twists off for fast oven entry. The oven within the Prem31r was surprisingly giant, able to dealing with upwards of .5 grams of floor herb.
When it comes to efficiency, the Prem31r carried out just about how we anticipated it will. The vapor high quality was good, style was alright (not nice) and draw resistance was snug. It truly felt similar to puffing on a cigar, partially due to the dimensions and form of the vaporizer, and partially due to the draw resistance. I’m not going to say that the vapor expertise was prime notch, nevertheless it was greater than passable, particularly contemplating the worth level of the Prem31r. In the event you’re in search of a top quality vape for underneath $100 then this can be a prime performer for positive.
The wax container lets you simply use concentrates within the Prem31r, merely load up the particular container and drop it into the oven. It’s essential that you simply completely clear out the oven earlier than switching over to concentrates to assist protect the flavour and vapor high quality. This coil-less focus vaporizing system is employed by many new vaporizer fashions, and with good cause. By holding the concentrates out of contact with the coil heaters you will get much more flavorful vapor and elongate your periods. This comes at the price of much less strong vapor pulls.
It’s actually handy being able to modify between herbs and concentrates while not having a number of vaporizers.
The worth is definitely the most effective function of the Prem31r. For underneath $80 you gained’t discover a vaporizer as versatile and useful because the Prem31r from BlackoutX.
Warmth distribution was implausible! Particularly contemplating the dimensions of the oven.
A 2-hour working time and 35-second heat-up time allow you to vaporizer whenever you need to with out having to continually fear about battery life.
The temperature pre-sets don’t permit for a lot customization. 375° F is true round my private candy spot, however having choice to boost the temp by 10° can be good, as an alternative of the huge leap to 410° F.
I might decide aside some design flaws that make the unit really feel a bit low cost, however contemplating the worth it’s rather well constructed. If it have been within the $200+ worth vary I might be much more essential concerning the oven lid, rubber mouthpiece, really feel of the button and general aesthetic of the Prem31r.
Nothing concerning the Prem31r actually blew us out of the water, besides in fact the worth. You’re getting a rather well balanced, compact vaporizer with loads of versatility for a fraction of the price of its rivals. I’d anticipate to pay round $150+ for a vaporizer with all of the options the Prem31r has, as an alternative it’s half the worth.
When you’re out there for a properly rounded vape and also you’re on a price range, this can be a incredible choice!
Supply Vapes lately despatched us their prized Supply Orb Four to assessment, and in the event you took the time to take a look at our evaluate you already know that it blew our socks off! For sure, we have been past stoked to listen to that we had a Supply Slim Four heading our approach to assessment. The Supply Slim Four is the marginally cheaper little brother of the Orb Four, and I feel I want the Slim to the Orb in all honesty.
Supply Slim Four Evaluate
The Supply Slim Four prices $89.95 ($10 cheaper than the Orb Four), however in contrast to the Orb Four which comes with a thoughts boggling 6 atomizers, the Slim Four comes with a extra modest 2 atomizers. Fortunately they included the coil-less quartz bucket atomizer, which was our arms down favourite from the final evaluation. The Supply Slim Four additionally comes with a twin quartz rod coil atomizer and can work with any of the Four-series atomizers from SV.
Discovered within the field:
Supply Slim Four Vaporizer
Quartz bucket coil-less atomizer
Twin rod atomizer
USB charging cable
One function I’d wish to level out immediately is the inclusion of somewhat silicone storage space in your concentrates discovered within the backside of the unit. It’s just a little high quality of life function that’s straightforward to miss, however I really feel this consideration to element permeates all through the complete vaporizer and proves that SV cares about your general vaporizing expertise. It additionally helps make the Supply Slim Four the most effective vaporizer pens we’ve had the pleasure of making an attempt.
The whole Supply Slim Four vaporizer is encased in a wonderful darkish chrome steel, giving it a really sturdy and top quality really feel. The chrome steel development does make the unit a bit heavy, coming in at ~Four ounceswhereas the larger Supply Orb Four weighs ~Three.5 oz. I’m truly a fan of the load although, it isn’t ‘too heavy’ by any stretch, and the entire unit is so compact that it’s simply stashed in a pocket or purse with out feeling cumbersome.
Supply Vape’s variable airflow system (VAS) that we liked a lot within the Orb Four is current within the Slim Four as properly. This lets you cowl / uncover tiny airflow holes that permit recent air to enter the unit as you draw. Our unit was truly locked in place, so we had all of the airflow holes uncovered and the attracts have been fairly clean and surprisingly strong.
SourceVapes prides themselves on their top quality atomizers, with a stainless-steel development and grade 1 titanium coils it’s no secret why they’re so rattling proud! I usually go for the coil-less atomizer due to the pure taste profile it presents in addition to the smaller, wispier hauls. For these occasions you need an enormous vapor pull simply screw on the twin rod atomizer and you may pull clouds as giant as you want.
At first look I questioned why anybody would get the Slim Four over the Orb Four contemplating the very small distinction in worth. Plus, the Orb Four comes with Four extra atomizers than the Slim Four does. After making an attempt each although, I feel the Slim Four can be my first selection. Partially due to the complete chrome steel development, however principally due to the dimensions. Sure, the Orb Four will slot in your pocket, however the Slim Four is way extra manageable and far much less conspicuous when utilizing it in public. So far as efficiency, they’re nearly equivalent.
Three-heat settings and a variable airflow system permit the consumer to customise their vaporizer expertise to suit their wants.
Chrome steel development and nicely machined elements give the Supply Slim Four a really sturdy really feel that provides you the arrogance to convey it nearly anyplace.
The entire design of the Supply Slim Four is simple and straightforward to make use of. Proper from the get-go I used to be pulling big clouds from this pen.
A inbuilt silicone container that screws onto the underside of the unit lets you deliver loads of concentrates with you with out having to deliver a fanny pack filled with provides.
I’m not an enormous fan of the button on the Supply Slim Four. It’s very modern, however it virtually feels prefer it was an afterthought. Based mostly on how top quality the remainder of the Slim Four is, the slender plastic button simply appears misplaced and is a bit awkward to carry down for fat-fingered me.
I really like the variable airflow system that SV has developed. I used to be simply unfortunate sufficient to get a unit that had a jam. Fortunately it nonetheless works like a appeal and I’ve no want to fiddle with the airflow any additional.
Now that I’ve run out of precise points I’ve with the Slim Four, I’ll point out that it’s a fingerprint magnet.
I knew I’d just like the Supply Slim Four as a result of I beloved the Orb Four from Supply Vapes. What I didn’t know was simply how a lot I’d just like the Slim Four, it truly trumped the Orb Four in my thoughts. Should you’re upset that you simply don’t get the identical atomizer choices, you possibly can all the time get them organized individually. All of the collection Four atomizers from SV match each the Orb and the Slim Four.
$89.95 isn’t low cost, nevertheless it’s greater than truthful contemplating the standard and performance of the Supply Slim Four. You might exit and spend $30 much less on a vape pen, however it will in all probability be a mistake.
Sciency people of at this time took some cues from legendary deities and developed a wax pen with the facility to create clouds on demand. The Zeus Thunder 2 was despatched to us by our associates at TorontoVaporizer, and we’re fairly excited to take a look at this high-power, low-profile vaporizer.
Zeus Thunder 2 Assessment
The Zeus Thunder 2 wax pen will run you $89.99, however you’ll additionally get a free present value ~$20 (a case or an natural vape attachment). The worth isn’t out of the bizarre when in comparison with different focus pens available on the market, however after utilizing the Thunder 2 I’m not completely satisfied it’s well worth the worth. Let’s break it down and you may determine for your self.
Discovered within the field:
Thunder 2 Vaporizer
Silicone wax container
four spare O-rings
*For the needs of being utterly clear with our evaluations, I really feel it’s necessary to say that the primary Zeus Thunder 2 we acquired had a problem the place the glass prime that’s supposed to slip on and off the unit (sealed with the O-rings), had adhered itself the rubber O-rings. This made the unit unusable, however TorontoVaporizer was extraordinarily useful and swift remedying the state of affairs, we had a totally useful unit in our palms very quickly!
Like all good wax pen, the Zeus Thunder 2 is very simple to make use of and keep. It makes use of a one-button system to lock / unlock the unit, and the provoke the heating course of. Even an absolute newbie would be capable of decide it up and get a strong haul immediately.
The Thunder 2 is straightforward to make use of, positive. In trade for the simplicity you’ll be sacrificing the power to personalize your expertise with issues like temperature settings / atomizer supplies. The manufacturing unit warmth setting is true round common, however as somebody who enjoys utilizing decrease temperatures I discovered that it might get a little bit of a burnt style nearing the top of the session.
Zeus outfitted the Thunder 2 with a ceramic plate atomizer, however that’s it. In the event you’re a fan of rod atomizers, or coiless choices (like me) you then’re in for a impolite awakening. Truthfully although, ceramic plate atomizers carry out fairly nicely, I simply needed to spotlight the shortage of selection for many who are specific about their atomizers.
Nearly all of the Zeus Thunder 2 is designed to be easy, glossy and practical. Except for the glass sheath portion that appears completely pointless. The glass sheath gained’t inconvenience you in any way, until it breaks. Positive it seems to be neat, however I don’t perceive the thought course of behind including a fragile element that provides nothing to the unit itself, however with out it the unit merely gained’t work.
Vapor high quality is adequate, the primary few rips style nice and you will get some critical clouds from the Thunder 2. As the fabric heats up, or should you pack too little within the oven at a time, you possibly can find yourself with a barely burnt taste. Whereas anybody can decide up the Thunder 2 and use it instantly, it is going to take a little bit of expertise to get persistently flavorful hauls.
Measurement is a significant factor for most individuals when searching the totally different vaporizer pen choices on the market. The Zeus Thunder 2 is slim, small and discreet.
Straightforward to make use of. One-button operation makes the Thunder 2 easy sufficient for anybody to make use of proper out of the gate.
Zeus coupled energy with nice battery life. Get giant hauls time after time with out having the recharge after each session.
The worth appears a bit steep for what you’re getting with the Zeus Thunder 2. Personally I’d wish to see it dip by about $20.
Pointless fragile elements are by no means a superb factor. The glass cowl for the Thunder 2 solely gives potential points versus improved perform.
The flavour can simply be ruined by overheating the unit, giving off a burnt style that’s arduous to shake.
Contemplating how far focus pens have come up to now couple of years, the Zeus Thunder 2 appears to be a bit behind the ball, a minimum of for the worth. If I used to be paying $50-$60 for the Thunder 2, I’d have little or no concern with the efficiency and construct high quality. For the $89.99 I’d actually wish to see extra although.
Should you’re in search of a simple to make use of vape pen and aren’t overly involved with it being knocked round in your pocket / bag, then the Zeus Thunder 2 is an effective choice. However I wouldn’t name it the best choice.
In pursuit of the right vaporizing expertise, a few buddies determined to create a vaporizer that didn’t compromise in any respect on the subject of high quality and performance. Sasha Robinson and Mark Williams are the masterminds behind Firefly vaporizers, bringing their experience in design and know-how to the vaporizer group.
Beforehand Sasha and Mark had labored within the tech world, coming from Flip (camcorders) and the tech big Apple. It’s no marvel why the Firefly 2 is taken into account the iPhone of vaporizers.
Firefly 2 Evaluate
The Firefly 2 has raised the bar for premium moveable vaporizers, however it additionally comes with that premium moveable price-tag of $329.95. With a glass bowl, glass vapor path, true convection heating, capacity to vaporizer herb in addition to concentrates, a complete app (for Apple & Android) and a jaw-droppingly beautiful design I can confidently say the Firefly 2 is value each penny. That’s to not say it doesn’t have its drawbacks although.
Discovered within the field:
Firefly 2 Vaporizer
USB charger w/ dock
Three Focus pads
2 Plastic cleansing picks
2 Cleansing wipes
The Firefly 2 has fairly a couple of options that set it aside from different vaporizers at present out there. Crucial function that the Firefly 2 brings to the desk is the truth that it’s a real convection vaporizer. For many who aren’t acquainted with this, it signifies that the herb is heated by the air passing via / round it. This helps make the FF2 one of the environment friendly vaporizers we’ve ever seen. The herb is simply being vaporized once you’re hauling on the unit, there’s no burn-off between pulls so you will get absolutely the most out of every bowl.
Aesthetically the Firefly 2 is a wide ranging piece. It has a pipe-like appear and feel with a really clear and complicated design. The nice and cozy acquainted glow from the bowl when the FF2 is heating provides customers a comforting feeling that provides to the authenticity of the entire expertise. Not solely does the glow let customers know that the unit is definitely heating up, it contributes the id of the Firefly and makes the entire thing much more satisfying than an LED mild or digital show letting you understand the unit is heating up. As a long-time hashish consumer with loads of expertise with pipes, bowls and joints, that faint glow is as comforting as a house cooked meal.
You’ll be able to monitor your herb / focus simply by means of the glass on the highest of the Firefly, simply one other small function that provides the FF2 a basic pipe really feel. That is actually a handy function and I’m stunned you don’t see it extra typically. Due to the best way the vapor path is laid out, this lovely glass window into the bowl will get soiled shortly. After every use I’ve to each empty the herb chamber and scrape off the lid as a result of herb will stick with it. Protecting the glass window (and your complete vapor path) clear is a breeze. A fast wipe with one of many provided cleansing cloths may have your Firefly 2 wanting model new in a flash.
There are not any buttons on the Firefly 2. Bizarre proper?! As an alternative, the futuristic people at Firefly Vapor positioned a few contact sensors on the aspect of the vaporizer that may sense once you’re holding it. Simply place your finger over the sensor and the FF2 will attain temperature in about Three-seconds, take an extended deep draw and launch the sensor. Utilizing the Firefly 2 is so simple as choosing it up and taking a puff, it couldn’t be simpler to make use of. That being stated, there’s some method required in terms of the draw itself.
To get the very best vapor pulls from the Firefly 2 you’ll need to take a couple of ‘cigar puffs’ (brief puffs utilizing your mouth and shortly exhaling by way of your nostril) to warmth the herb up. As soon as the herb is heated up (2-Three cigar puffs), you’ll be able to take an extended draw (10-seconds is advisable) that may present a strong vapor cloud. When vaporizing concentrates you’ll need to ‘cigar puff’ a number of extra occasions than regular.
Once more, the Firefly 2 has no buttons in any way, the whole lot is managed via an app you possibly can set up in your iPhone or Android gadget. When you pair your FF2 together with your telephone by way of Bluetooth you possibly can select between 5 totally different temperatures for vaporizing herb or a particular focus setting that ramps the temperature as much as 500° F. The app additionally enables you to customise how the contact sensors work, monitor the battery life and even replace the firmware of your Firefly.
Let’s get proper down crucial facet of any vaporizer, the standard of the vapor itself. The Firefly 2 is among the most spectacular vaporizers I’ve ever used because of the stainless taste and remarkably clean vapor. Scorching vapor isn’t a superb factor, it will possibly burn your lips / mouth and irritate your throat and lungs, making the entire vaporizing expertise lower than excellent. The vapor from the Firefly2 isn’t scorching, it isn’t even heat. The vapor from the Firefly2 truly feels cool on the mouth, making the pulls terribly clean and flavorful.
Should you’re conversant in a number of the totally different cannabinoids and terpenes present in hashish, you in all probability know they boil (flip into vapor) at totally different temperatures. Most of the terpenes (liable for the flavour / fragrant profile of the pressure) will begin to boil off at very low temperatures. A standard conduction vaporizer will destroy a whole lot of these terpenes earlier than you ever get an opportunity to expertise them. The on-demand convection heating of the Firefly 2 permit the consumer to style and expertise each nuance of their herb as a result of it heats up as you draw. After every draw the herb could have a barely totally different taste profile as a few of the early terpenes are boiled away, it makes every pressure and every bowl a journey.
A strong 50W heater permits the Firefly 2 to succeed in temperature in just some seconds, nevertheless it additionally contributes to a disappointing battery life. Every cost will get you between 12-20 full attracts (2-Three bowls), whereas this isn’t that unusual amongst moveable vaporizers, I hoped for a extra spectacular battery life. Firefly Vapor consists of 2 rechargeable batteries in every field and the unit expenses actually shortly (45-60 min), so battery life is nearly by no means an actual difficulty.
The right draw resistance is one thing very private to vapor fanatics, some favor virtually no resistance, others like heaps of it. The Firefly 2 has a reasonably restricted airflow, much more so when you neglect cleansing the tiny metallic display discovered within the mouthpiece. Personally I really feel prefer it’s a bit too restrictive, making lengthy periods a bit laborious. Utilizing a rough grind and packing the bowl loosely will assist, however the mouthpiece is chargeable for the overwhelming majority of the air restriction. Once more, that is simply my choice and I’m positive lots of you’ll disagree and be very happy with the airflow of the FF2.
The Firefly 2 is probably the greatest in terms of taste and vapor high quality.
On-demand convection heating makes the Firefly tremendous environment friendly. In case you wish to take a toke right here and there, stretching a single bowl all through a number of hours and even days, the Firefly has you coated. Nothing goes to waste.
The type of the Firefly speaks for itself, however the really feel is one thing that’s troublesome to convey with out bodily having one in hand. All I can say is that it feels implausible.
Seamlessly switching from vaporizing herb to concentrates is nearly important in at present’s market. The Firefly 2 excels at each, and fairly frankly the flavour of the focus vapor is best than anything we’ve tried.
Ease of use is essential, nobody needs to learn a 10-page guide as a way to use their vaporizer. With no buttons and a well-known pipe-style design the Firefly 2 couldn’t be simpler to make use of.
You’ll have to fire up the bowl after the primary few hits. Whereas the FF2 is environment friendly, the design doesn’t permit for utterly even heating with out mixing issues up a bit.
The battery life is satisfactory, you get two of them, they usually cost shortly. However for those who’re planning on an extended session with a number of buds you may run into an issue. How typically are you vaping greater than Four-6 bowls at a time although?
The airflow is a bit too restrictive for my liking. It’s completely high quality for a toke right here and there, however extended periods spotlight the difficulty.
The Firefly 2 is totally different from another vaporizer I’ve used earlier than. Not solely does it present one of many purest tasting and feeling vaporizing experiences, it appears to be designed for the nostalgic pot-smoker and first-time consumer alike. Connoisseurs will flock to the FF2 for the cleanest vapor pulls obtainable in a transportable vape and infrequently seen convection type heating. Newbies will probably be drawn in the direction of the straightforward to know design and performance of the vaporizer.
The worth of the Firefly 2 could be a tough capsule to swallow, nevertheless it’s a should have vaporizer for those who’re a real vaporizer fanatic.

Vaporizer lovers rejoice! Arizer has launched a exceptional new vaporizer, an up to date model of certainly one of our absolute favourite moveable vapes; the Solo II. The Solo 2 pays tribute to its roots with a really comparable design to the unique Solo, with a number of key upgrades.
Arizer hasn’t introduced an official launch date as of but, and the price of the Solo II continues to be unknown. We’ll be updating you on the launch date in addition to price ticket as quickly as we all know.
Arizer Solo II Evaluation
The Arizer Solo II will are available two colours to start out, Mystic Blue and Carbon Black. We assume it’ll value round ~$200, placing it consistent with Arizers different moveable vaporizers.
The Solo II took fairly a number of cues from the unique, from the best way you load / function the unit to the general dimensions. The addition of an natural LED show permits customers to intently monitor / modify issues like temperature, working time and battery life. The peak of the Solo II is nearly equivalent to the unique, nevertheless it was given extra of an oval design which makes holding the unit extra snug.
Discovered within the field:
Solo 2 Vaporizer
2 Glass stems (90mm & 110mm lengths)
2 Silicone stem caps
Glass aroma dish
Chrome steel stirring device
Four Chrome steel screens
Pattern of fragrant botanicals
So far as the general expertise and vapor high quality, the Solo II is nearly precisely the identical as the unique Solo. This won’t sound like a great factor, however it’s a incredible factor! The unique Arizer Solo was, and nonetheless is among the greatest vaporizers. I really like that Arizer didn’t attempt to reinvent the wheel, they only upgraded the center and introduced the aesthetics updated.
When you come up with the Solo II you get a way for a way properly it’s constructed. It has a strong really feel, nothing rattles round in any respect. Arizer used a bit of brushed chrome steel to cap off the highest and backside of the unit, and fairly truthfully it’s my favourite change apart from the vastly improved battery life. It simply seems actually nice, reinforcing a sense of sturdiness, high quality and pure perform; plus it’s straightforward to wash.
Right here’s the large change that may have any present Solo house owners clamoring to order a brand new Solo II; battery life. The Solo II battery will last as long as Three-hours on a single cost. Extra realistically you possibly can anticipate a bit of over 2-hours of battery life, a minimum of that’s been my expertise. The unit additionally takes Three-hours to completely cost, however it may be used whereas charging to keep away from an excessive amount of downtime.
The OLED show is managed with Three-buttons on the entrance of the unit and can let you already know when the gadget is heating, battery life and naturally temperature. You’ll be able to dial within the actual temperature you need between 50° C and 220° C (122° F – 428° F) utilizing 1-degree or 10-degree increments. You can even regulate issues like the quantity of the beeps or you possibly can flip them off utterly. Show brightness and Celsius / Fahrenheit settings may also be adjusted.
The Solo II has a power-on delay in addition to an auto shut-off timer inbuilt for security causes. You’ll be able to regulate these within the settings, however you possibly can’t flip both off utterly. The auto shut-off isn’t a problem because it permits you to vape for as much as 15 minutes per session. The facility-on delay is a little bit of a nuisance as it might’t be set any decrease than Four-seconds. All this implies if you must maintain the facility buttons for Four seconds earlier than the system activates, not the top of the world, however sort of annoying.
When it comes to efficiency the Solo II is unbelievable, identical to the unique. Vapor high quality, density and taste are all prime notch. What you possibly can anticipate is a quicker warmth up time, reaching 200° C in ~40 seconds. This extra highly effective heater additionally permits for extra aggressive hauls as a result of it may keep temperature throughout use extra simply.
The glass stems on the Solo II are nearly the identical as those discovered on the unique, holding the identical quantity of herb (round zero.2 grams). Unique Solo stems will match within the Solo II with out difficulty.
Efficiency. Arizer has found out learn how to present optimum vapor taste and high quality in a particularly environment friendly moveable vaporizer. There’s a number of vaporizers that may compete, however none come to thoughts that may exceed the Solo II.
The improved battery life and warmth up time helped convey the brand new Solo vaporizer updated when it comes to present vaporizer know-how.
The tweaked design and elegance of the Solo II are nice! Paying homage to its lineage and on the similar time providing a extra refined and up to date look.
Measurement has all the time been a scorching matter when discussing the Solo. As a transportable vaporizer it’s on the massive aspect, to not point out the protruding glass tube. Whereas the Solo II has trimmed down a bit, it’s nonetheless on the bigger aspect of moveable vaporizers.
I might have appreciated to see simply interchangeable batteries within the Solo II. The Arizer Air permits customers to shortly substitute lifeless batteries, I’d wish to see this carried over to the brand new Solo. With the ability to use the gadget whereas it’s charging helps make this a non-issue whereas vaporizing at residence.
The stems DO slot in a 14mm glass becoming, however not nicely. 14mm glass attachments made particularly for the Solo and Air have been round for some time, they usually’re extraordinarily well-liked amongst Arizer customers. I might have appreciated to see one included with the Solo II, even on the expense of one of many common stems.
Arizer Solo vs Solo II
Except for the modifications we talked about above, right here’s what the Arizer Solo and Solo II appear to be aspect by aspect.
Fairly frankly I’m over the moon that Arizer determined to replace an previous basic. The Solo II is my new favourite ‘at-home moveable’. What it lacks in stealth and portability it greater than makes up for by way of its efficiency.
For those who’re out there for one thing you’ll be able to throw in your pocket, tackle a hike or outside journey, the Solo II in all probability isn’t for you. For those who’re primarily vaporizing at house and need to have an uncompromising vaporizing expertise, get a Solo II.
Hopper Labs despatched us over considered one of their chrome steel Grasshopper vaporizers to take a look at and evaluation for you fantastic people. Being one of the highly effective, stealthy and well-built vaporizers we’ve gotten our arms on, it goes with out saying that we have been fairly excited to provide it a attempt.
The Grasshopper has a couple of points that we’ll get to later, however general that is one among my absolute favourite moveable vaporizers. Plus it comes with a lifetime guarantee for full peace of thoughts.
The Grasshopper Vaporizer is available in a couple of totally different varieties: the Stainless choice (which we now have) for $200 USD, the Titanium choice for $250 USD, Coloured Titanium for $250 USD and Warmth Handled Titanium for $350 USD. The important thing variations between the Stainless and Titanium fashions are the Ti fashions weigh barely much less (about 10-12 grams), have a extra scratch resistant end they usually keep barely cooler the contact.
Whereas the Warmth Handled Ti mannequin seems to be implausible, I couldn’t justify paying almost twice as a lot for it. At $200 the chrome steel Grasshopper is a discount and works simply in addition to the titanium fashions.
Discovered within the field:
Additional 750 mAh Li-ion battery
Magnetic USB charging cable
Now that we’ve coated the fundamentals, let’s dive into what makes the Grasshopper certainly one of our all-time favourite vaporizers.
As quickly as you raise the Grasshopper out of its field you get a way of how nicely this vaporizer is constructed. A gaggle of engineers designed and constructed this vaporizer, and it exhibits. Every thing matches collectively seamlessly, the load is good, it’s nicely balanced and it’s terribly highly effective for its measurement. Even the on/off button feels incredible! You get a really satisfying mechanical click on when turning the unit on or off, it simply feels actually strong.
The Grasshopper is a real convection vaporizer, one thing not often seen in moveable models, and by no means seen in a pen fashion vaporizer of this measurement. Convection vaporizers have an edge over conduction fashion vaporizers as a result of they’re much more environment friendly, supply extra flavorful hauls and evenly distribute the warmth all through the herb chamber.
Because of the extraordinarily highly effective 45 watt heater used within the Grasshopper, it will possibly attain peak temperature in simply 5-seconds. That’s proper. 5-seconds. Simply click on that o-so-satisfying button and by the point you deliver the hopper to your lips it’s able to go.
The herb chamber holds as much as zero.three grams of floor herb, however in contrast to a conduction vaporizer, the Grasshopper will ship constant vapor pulls no matter how mild you pack it. Whereas the herb chamber can maintain fairly a little bit of floor bud, it’s a little tough to pack with out making a multitude. Because of the measurement constraints of being a pen-style vaporizer, the herb chamber is sort of slender and troublesome to pack on the go. I exploit the pen as a scoop and cargo it immediately from my grinder to keep away from a multitude, simply remember to maintain the threading on the mouthpiece clear between makes use of.
The temperature is managed with a dial that ranges from 130° C to 210° C(266° F – 410° F). Every notch within the dial represents 20° C, however you possibly can dial it between notches to additional fine-tune your temperature setting. When utilizing the Grasshopper alone I like to take a seat round notch #three (170° C), when pairing it with a glass bubbler I dial it as much as #Four – #5.
We talked about that the Grasshopper makes use of a really highly effective 45 watt heater, which means you’ll be able to haul as arduous as you need and this vaporizer gained’t settle down. Permitting customers to tug vapor clouds as giant as they will deal with. The unit itself does get fairly scorching throughout extended use, it will get so scorching that I can’t press my lips towards the mouthpiece with out utilizing the silicone cowl. Throughout solo-sessions the warmth isn’t an issue, however in the event you’re planning on having a session with a couple of individuals anticipate the unit to get fairly rattling heat.
The vapor path within the Grasshopper is sort of brief. Because of this the vapor itself is sort of heat when it reaches your mouth / throat. Aggressive hauls on larger temperature settings may be uncomfortable and aggravating to the throat and lungs. I wish to pair the Grasshopper with a bubbler to chill down the vapor, permitting me to take monster pulls with out burning my lips. It matches completely in 14mm glass attachments while not having any particular adapters. Merely press the Grasshopper within the stem and begin hauling (use the silicone mouthpiece to make sure a decent seal).
Battery life isn’t the perfect, however contemplating the dimensions of the batteries and energy of the heating unit it’s truly higher than I might have anticipated. Every cost provides you between 2-Four full periods relying on temp setting and size of the session. Hopper Labs is sort sufficient to incorporate an additional battery with every Grasshopper, plus you need to use the Grasshopper whereas it’s charging to keep away from any downtime. Additional batteries could be bought via Hopper Labs for $7 every.
The Grasshopper doesn’t have any harsh studying curve, you possibly can pack as a lot or as little herb as you need, you’ll be able to haul as flippantly or as aggressively as you’d like, it’s going to all the time carry out. It’s additionally extraordinarily straightforward to wash and keep, particularly in the event you brush out any unfastened herb between periods.
It will be straightforward to mistake the Grasshopper for a flowery pen till you flip the unit on and the LEDs mild up.
A strong 45 watt heater that reaches temperature in 5 seconds and may stand up to probably the most aggressive pulls with out dropping warmth.
Utilizing decrease temperature settings permits you to get probably the most flavorful rips, and dialing it up provides you full, dense vapor clouds.
The dimensions of the Grasshopper makes it discreet, however the energy rivals most desktop vaporizers and blows virtually each moveable out of the water.
Hopper Labs gives a lifetime guarantee for each Grasshopper they promote. After seeing the construct high quality first hand, we doubt you’ll ever want to make use of it.
The brief vapor path can result in uncomfortably scorching vapor hitting your lips when pulling arduous.
Throughout prolonged use the mouthpiece will get fairly scorching to the contact, making the silicone sleeve a should for a number of individual periods.
The herb chamber is a bit tough to pack as a result of it’s so slender. Packing this vaporizer on the go can be a problem.
Because of the measurement of the batteries they solely final a number of periods earlier than needing to be charged up. Fortunately they embrace an additional battery and the unit can be utilized whereas it’s charging.
The Grasshopper is a must-own for any vaporizer fanatic. At $200 for the entry degree mannequin there’s no comparability available on the market. The Grasshopper is unmatched in energy, worth and elegance.
Even with a brief vapor path, uncomfortably scorching mouthpiece throughout prolonged periods and comparatively brief battery life in comparison with different portables, the Grasshopper is our new daily-driver and we will’t get sufficient of it! Hopper Labs did such an ideal job designing and executing the Grasshopper that I instantly appeared previous the minor points and embraced the unit as an entire.
When you’re a vaporizer fanatic with a set of the industries prime vaporizers, you want this. In the event you’ve by no means owned a vaporizer earlier than and need one thing easy to make use of for an reasonably priced worth, you want this.

The Dipper from Dipstick Vapes is a mixture between an digital rig and a vape pen. It comes outfitted with a twin quartz rod atomizer for the basic vape pen really feel, in addition to a nectar collector / straw atomizer attachment for probably the most handy dab dips. An enormous thanks goes out to the parents at Dipstick Vapes for hooking us up with one among their new Dippers to check out. Let’s get began!
DipStick Vapes Dipper Evaluate
The Dipper is Dipstick Vapes most up-to-date mannequin, the subsequent era of their Dipstick vaporizer pen. It should set you again $149.99 USD, which is sort of a bit for a vaporizer pen, however the added perform of the Dipper makes it nicely value it in my thoughts. There are three temperature settings to select from and the battery life is not any joke!
Discovered within the field:
2 Straw atomizer attachments
Quartz dual-rod atomizer
USB charging cable
Pack of cleansing swabs
2 Additional o-rings
The straw fashion atomizer is one thing we don’t have a lot expertise with, however we instantly fell in love with it! Also called a vertical atomizer, the straw doesn’t have to be loaded or ready. Merely dip your atomizer into your focus and luxuriate in as a lot, or as little as you need. It provides the consumer full management and permits for some critically big rips if that’s your jam.
The Dipper is likely one of the extra dynamic vaporizer pens that we’ve seen, requiring some re-organizing of its elements relying on which atomizer you go for. The atomizers simply screw into the highest portion of the vaporizer, however the mouthpiece attachment could be hooked up to each side. When utilizing the twin rod atomizer you place the mouthpiece on prime, over the atomizer. When utilizing the straw atomizer you place the mouthpiece on the underside, leaving the atomizer uncovered so you’ll be able to dip into your dabs.
The twin rod atomizer makes use of quartz crystal rods and titanium coils whereas the straw tip atomizers use a ceramic straw and nickel coil.
One situation I had with the Dipper was the shortage of magnets… Should you’ve learn a few of my different evaluations you’ll know I’ve an affinity for something that makes use of magnets, whether or not they’re needed or not. On the Dipper they’re crucial. When swapping out the atomizer on the Dipper the ‘reclaim chamber’ portion that the mouthpiece matches over merely falls off. This piece must be detachable as a way to clear the unit, however some magnetic attraction can be an enormous enchancment.
I used to be actually impressed with the rips that the straw atomizer was delivering, however the twin quartz rod was incredible as nicely! Usually these rod atomizers are fairly fickle, you actually need to watch out to not overload the atomizer or else you’ll find yourself swamping the coils. The Dipper rod atomizer feels strong and performs like a champion! I used to be loading it fairly full and it powered via with out hesitation.
The liberty to stay your beak into your focus at any second for a fast dab couldn’t be extra handy. I’ve used loads of e-rigs and wax pens, however the straw atomizer on the Dipper has made it my go-to for fast tokes. It’s like having the facility of a full dab rig at your fingertips, no ready, no water, no problem and no mess.
Between the straw atomizer tip and Three-temperature settings the Dipper vaporizer provides customers full management over their dab in a matter of seconds.
Twin quartz rod atomizer is rather well constructed and performance nice.
The Dipper is extraordinarily straightforward to make use of and makes dabbing simpler than ever.
Construct high quality and design are prime notch. Throw a pair magnets on this factor and it might be good!
It’s fairly costly. Even with all of the options and performance the Dipper gives, $149.99 is a troublesome capsule to swallow. That being stated, I’d say it’s value it.
As a result of the mouthpiece can connect to each ends of the vaporizer, the ends have o-rings and appears uncovered. This isn’t an issue when it comes to perform, it simply makes the vape look sort of un-finished. A disgrace contemplating how nice the remainder of it seems when absolutely assembled.
The Dipper has modified the best way I dab. Nothing will substitute a correct glob in a rig with an enormous o’l banger, however for 90% of the time I’d a lot quite simply seize the Dipper and have a toke on a whim.
For anybody out there for a top quality wax vaporizer pen, I’d recommend taking a critical take a look at the Dipper by Dipstick Vapes. When you attempt the straw atomizer you’ll by no means look again.
