Arizer Go Vaporizer | Pocket Herb Vape

​Portable vaporizers continue to evolve and continue to become a popular product for cannabis and herbal plant enthusiasts. The ability to vaporizer both cannabis and other herbs is one of the best ways to extract and consume the active ingredients of pant material. ​Canadian company Arizer is at the forefront of this growing industry. With popular desktop and portable device, Arizer has become one of the dominant names in the vaporizer industry. Arizer has caught our attention once again with newly released news about a 3rd addition to there portable vaporizer lineup. The Arizer Go vaporizer is in the works and will be released soon.

Arizer Go Vaporizer

​What we know about the Arizer Go Vaporizer

​The Go will ​has been designed to be very portable and discrete. Built with a retractable glass mouthpiece, the Arizer Go takes the best from both the Air and Solo models. ​A easy to read digital display helps to communicate the devices current temperature, battery life, and additional options.

When more details come out about this model we will update this page. We are interested to know if this will be a dry herb only vaporizer, a concentrate only vaporier, or perhaps a multi material vaporizer. One of the most important aspects of a portable vaporizer is the battery that makes it run. By looking at the design I will assume that it is an internal battery (but I could very well be mistaken here). The small size of the Arizer Go also makes me believe that it will be a conduction heating vaporizer and not convection - This is something I hope to be wrong about. The other models of arizer vaporizers are all convection in a sense. However if this is a concentrate vaporizer designed for quick hits while on the go, then I might have t be a conduction one.

​The IQ is on of the most compact dry herb vaporizers currently available. It has been 1 year since its initial release and to celebrate the company has introduced a new Davinci IQ special edition. Hopefully olive lime green is your color because that's what it comes in. I know 'olive' dies sound to enticing but by looking at the device in the image below it actually looks pretty good to me.

New DaVinci Vaporizer the IQ

​Smart Technology in the New Davinci IQ

​The app that pairs the IQ to your smart phone or tablet is one of the most useful of all the vaporizer apps.

Shipped in a Davinci branded blonde wood crate you will receive the following:

  • Glass spacers - these are designed to fit perfectly inside the IQ's oven allowing you to pack different amounts for smaller sessions. The glass spacers work well because the glass does not take away from the natural flavor of your herbs, while allowing even airflow.
  • Aromatherapy herb tins - one of the most unique features of the IQ is the flavor chamber where you can store either extra weed or other herbs. This chamber allows you to experience a new taste each session to keep things interesting. You can mix herbs together and pair them with different strains to get truly unique experiences with the IQ. This is something you can't get with any other portable vaporizers. The collectors edition contains a few different tins of aromatherapy herbs to try out.

Pulsar Flow Vaporizer Review – Ergonomic Convection Heating

​Ergonomic, affordable, convection, cooling vapor path - all ​things sure to make the ​Pulsar Flow vaporizer a popular device. ​ The Pulsar Flow ​is an affordable high quality portable dry herb convection ​vaporizer. ​Available in multiple color options with a few unique features under the hood we expect this will be a stong mid price range contender. ​Although we have not had the chance to test this unit yet we will let you ​know about its details and ​features.

Flow Vaporizer

​Buy the Pulsar Flow Here​

​Build Quality Notes

​Intended to be one of Pulsars next big sellers the Flow has been built with quality in mind. The herb chamber is lined with quartz to ​help deliver strong tasting vapor while the housing is made of durable material​s.​

An internal 1600 mAh battery powers the Flow. The 1600 mAh battery is better than your average mid range device's power supply. Considering the Flow comes in at around the $100 mark a 1600 mAh battery is pretty impressive.

​Located on the top of the Pulsar Flow vaporizer is a long magnetic oven lid that doubles as the vapor filter and cooling path.​ This lid is made of a durable metal. Overall the build quality and components used make the price seem very reasonable.

Pulsar Flow Vapor Notes

Convection units require a stronger battery to be effective. The Flow ​is ​​powered by a 1600 mAh battery as we mentioned above and it looks like it is a sufficient power source to do the job well. A modest 40 second heat time is needed to allow the convection heating method to do its job before you can achieve a good pull. ​Convection heating is the most efficient way to vaporizer dry herbs and helps to deliver better tasting not burnt vapor. View more convection vaporizers here.

Dry Herb Vaproizer - Pulsar Flow

​Taking a page out of the playbook of popular vaporizer brand 'Firefly' is the long groove like vapor path. As the vapor leaves the heating chamber and heads towards your mouth it is forced to flow in and out of the embossed cooling filter pattern. Honestly, the Flow looks like a less sophisticated version of the popular Firefly 2 vaporizer (seen here). 

The long vapor path assuming it works on par with the Firefly 2 will require a quick wipe down after several uses. If the vapor path works even only half as good as the Firefly 2 it will remove a good amount of unwanted vapor particles from entering your body.

Temperature for the Flow ranges from 356 to 428 with haptic feedback. The one button design makes switching between the temperatures simple and leaves less room for wear and tear on the unit.

​Portability

​We already commented on the fact that the Pulsar Flow uses an impressive 1600 mAh battery. We expect that this will get you between 10 to 20 sessions. We will again need to confirm this once we have seen this device in action. The small compact nature of the Flow makes it one of the smaller convection vaporizers available. The rounded shape could be comfy or awkward depending on which way you have it positioned in your pocket.

Appearance of the Flow by Pulsar

​Available in a few variations you can get the Flow i​n all black​, silver and black, carbon fiber, and also with a hint of nature with wood grain and silver.

The shape of the unit is similar to that of the Loto Lux which is another high end vaporizer that has recently been released. This teardrop design is comfortable to hold in the hand. The mouthpiece is ergonomic and feels natural to draw from. So we're told. ​The overall design and functionality of the Pulsar Flow is simple​with just one button. There is a row of five LED lights to indicate temperature settings located on the one side.

​Where You Can Buy the Flow

​We suggest you purchase the Flow from Vape-Smart here. If you and a friend both make your purchase at the same time you will receive an additional 10% savings.

Portable Dry Herb Vaporizers

What is a portable dry herb vaporizer? Portable dry herb vaporizers are electronic vaporizing devices that are capable of vaping dry leaf materials. ​Some portable vaporizers are designed for only cannabis extracts and concentrates, while others are designed ​for multiple materials.

Through reviewing customer feedback, reading the most trusted critics reviews, and testing devices we have come up with a number of categories and the portable vaporizer that we think is the best in class for each one. To find the best portable dry herb vaporizer simply narrow in on the category that matters most to you and see if the number one spot is what you are looking for.

Best Overall Performance Dry Herb Vaporizer​

Crafty Vaporizer

Crafty Vaporizer

Smart portable convection dry herb and wax vaporizer​.

The Crafty is our number 1 pick for best overall dry herb vaporizer. Portability, vapor production and flavor, ease of use, and build quality were all taken into consideration for this category.

Storz and Bickel came out with the Crafty and the Mighty at the same time back in 2014. Since this time they have both been heavily regarded as two of the best units available for portable vaping. The Crafty is an easy to use device that is controlled with just one button. For more advanced use and a more personal touch the Crafty can also be controlled via the Bluetooth application.

At any given time the Crafty can have two default temperatures set for the button on the device to heat at. Using the app you can change these two temperatures to anything in the range of 104F - 410F. A big selling point with the Crafty is the convection heating oven that vapes your materials using forced hot air.

Something I would like to see improved upon in the next version of the Crafty is a more powerful and interchangeable battery. The Mighty is still king when it comes to battery life as it has double the battery power as the Crafty does. The Crafty only beats the Mighty due to its smaller size for convenience purposes and a lower price tag.

Best Dry Herb Vaporizer Under $200

PAX 3

PAX 3​

​Smart portable dry herb and wax vaporizer.

​​The PAX 3 has recently seen a huge price drop. What once was considered a bargain at $279 now only costs $199.

​​PAX 3 is the same size as the PAX 2 with a few upgrades ​under the hood. A few of the more notable upgrades include the ability to vape both dry herbs and concentrates. It uses a 3500 mAh battery vs the 3000 mAh battery in the PAX 2. You can control it and optimize your sessions with a Bluetooth application. The PAX 3 is one of the more advanced smart vaporizers that has special vaping modes and built in games.

You are able to set the vapor profile on stealth mode, boost mode, flavor mode, and battery saving mode. Most people are drawn to the PAX as one of their top choices for its compact nature and ease of use. On a single charge you are able to get somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 minutes of usage.

Best Dry Herb Vaporizer Under $150

PAX 2 Vaporizer

PAX 2​

​Portable dry herb ​vaporizer.

​The PAX 2 has seen a price drop from $199 down to $149. ​This change in price has bumped the PAX 2 into our number one spot for best portable dry herb vaporizer under $150. Although the PAX 2 is not quite as fast as the PAX 3 it is still a very powerful and efficient little vaporizer. The 2 biggest differences in the PAX 3 and the PAX 2 is that it does not come readily available to vape concentrates and does not work with the PAX vapor app.

Best Cheap Dry Herb Vaporizer​

Pulsar APX 2 Vaporizer

P​ulsar APX V2​

​Portable dry herb ​vaporizer.

​The Pulsar APX V2 is the second generation of the popular APX device. This version has a fast 30 second heat up time, haptic feedback, enhanced LED display, an ergonomic mouthpiece, and more precise temperature settings. The biggest selling point of this device is that it performs well and costs under $70.

Best Multi Material (Wax + Dry Herb​)

PAX 3

PAX 3 - Read Review

​Smart portable dry herb and wax vaporizer.

​For $249 you can get the complete package that comes with the half packing lid, concentrate insert, and a new carrying case. The PAX 3 is a long lasting, high build quality device that delivers consistently good sessions. When you vape with concetrates you need to be sure that you keep you device clean.

Best Convection ​Heating

Crafty Vaporizer

Crafty Vaporizer

Smart portable convection dry herb and wax vaporizer.

​The Crafty uses ​a convection ​oven to vaporizer dry herbs and wax concentrates. Convection vaporizers use forced hot air instead of ​conduction ​. The Crafty is considered a hybrid heating vaporizer as it ​does heat up the bowl at the same time.

Best Water Filtration​

Portable Water Vaporizer

Hydrology9​

​Portable water filtration dry herb vaporizer.

​The Hydrology 9 by Cloudious 9 is our number one pick for a water filtration dry herb vaporizer. I'll start off by saying that the Hydrology 9 could use a bit better of an oven but besides that I love this thing.

​Built from spacecraft grade materials, and tough borosilicate glass components the Hydrology 9 is a smooth hitting masterpiece. There is just one button on the Hydrology 9 which can be used to power the device on, pan through the 5 default temperature settings, turn on party session mode, and LED ambiance mode. The oven has a built in stir stick that allows you to mix up your materials mid session. You really only need to fill the cylinder about 30% in my opinion to get a smooth clean hit. 

​If you ​purchase the Hydrology 9, I recommend that ​also get the leather carrying case. ​The leather carrying case is a snug fitting ​accessory that ​looks great and will give you peace of mind.

Best Vapor Flavor​

Firefly 2​

​Smart ​portable dry herb and wax vaporizer​.

​Firefly 2 is a pure convection smart vaporizer for dry herbs and concentrates. First off this thing is one of my favorite vaporizer both in functionality and in appearance.

​The Firefly 2 comes with 5 different default temperature settings. These can be adjusted with the app. 4 of the settings are for dry herbs while 1 is for concentrates. Something very unique with the Firefly vaporizer is the ability to improve your device through software updates. ​Months after the initial release there was an update that gave device holders a performance boost mode.

​It comes with 2 replaceable batteries and only requires one at a time to function. This means you can always have a spare ready to go. A 10 second pre heat time is all it takes to get our first hit of your session. This on demand heat capability with the convection oven and long cooling vapor path make for a great vaping experience. The Firefly 2 is a flavorful vapor producing device that most people really seem to enjoy.

Best Budget Convection​

Utillian 721 vaporizer for herbs

Utillian 721​

​Portable dry herb convection vaporizer.

​The Utillian brand of vaporizers is still a relatively small name. The Utillian 721 has been compared to the Crafty as it is a convection based device with a similar vapor path style. Although the Utillian 721 does not compete on the same level as the Crafty it is a strong performer in its own price range.

Best ​Compact

New DaVinci Vaporizer the IQ

DaVinci IQ​

Smart ​portable dry herb vaporizer​.

​The Davinci IQ is smaller in height than the PAX 3 and is one of the most comfortable portable vaporizers to hold in your hand. The wider surface space and curved design just feels right.

​Davinci has built the iQ with a interchangeable battery. This is something that I really like to see in a portable vaporizer. If something is to go wrong with a vaporizer that uses an internal battery you will have to either get the whole thing replaced ​or wait for it to get repaired. With an external battery you can simply pop in a new one and keep on vaping.

The Davinci IQ came out in November of 2016 as is still the most compact smart vaporizer with app connectivity. It comes with a 10 year warranty and is backed by a strong customer support program. The vapor that the IQ produces is top tier. Low temperatures and high temperatures seem to deliver great tasting smooth vapor with the IQ.

​Davinci's app can be used to set precise temperatures and customize the smart paths. Smart paths are a unique feature to the IQ where you can set your session to a specific setting where it will stay on one temperature for the first sagment of your session and then switch to another temperature for the 2nd segment of your session. The app for the IQ is one of the best vaporizer apps currently available.

Best Portability and Discreet​

PAX Vaporizer on Amazon

PAX 3​

​Portable ​dry herb vaporizer.​

​We have chosen the PAX 3 as the most portable and most discrete vaporizer for a few reasons. ​

​First, the PAX 3 has special vaping modes that allow you to adjust the vapor performance. By setting the PAX 3 on stealth mode it will vape your material at a low temperature and gradually increase it through out your session. The PAX 3 also only heats your material while you raise the device to your lips. This keeps your battery lasting longer and the smell of cannabis more isolated.

​T​he 3500 mAh battery ​in the PAX 3 is one of the best in any portable vaporizer. ​It is able to get you around 100 minutes of usage time on a single charge​.​ Furthermore, the small pocket friendly design that you can conceal in the palm of your hand makes the PAX 3 an ideal vaporizer for on the go use.

Best 3 in 1​ Complete

New Haze Vaporizer Review

​Haze Dual V3

Portable 3 in 1 vaporizer.​

​The Haze Dual V3 is a complete all in one device. This feature packed device is currently our top pick for a 3 in 1 vaporizer.

​This 3 in 1 vaporizer is packed with features. ​It uses 2 replaceable batteries, has a glass mouthpiece, and ​heats with conduction and convection​ inserts. What's more is that it comes with a 10 year warranty. The V3 is one of the first devices to use a dual bowl system that allows you to pre-pack 2 different mediums of cannabis at the same time. 

One of the biggest draws to the Haze Dual V3 is the wide selection of accessories and attachments that you can use with it. Connecting the Haze V3 to a water piece is one of the most enjoyable things you can do with this device. Another huge perk is the fact that it does use replaceable batteries. If you want this thing to last for weeks at a time, you just need to bring enough batteries with you.

Best ​Versatility

Prohibited 5th Degree Dabber Attachment

​Prohibited 5th Degree

Portable ​dry herb and wax vaporizer.​

​The Prohibited 5th Degree is our top pick for the most versatile dry herb vaporizer that also has some new innovative features. ​To start, the 5th Degree is designed for both dry herbs and wax concentrates. More so, the device has a few attachments that take it to a hole new level. You can pair it with a e rig attachment and a suction dabbing attachment to keep things interesting.

Best Battery Life​

Mighty Vaporizer

​Mighty

Portable dry herb and concentrate vaporizer.​

​The Mighty is the Crafty on steroids. All though the Mighty is not a small portable vaporizer it does boast the best battery life of any portable device currently available.

​Double the battery capacity of the Crafty and built with a easy to read LED display the Mighty can easily get most users through full day or more on one charge. The Mighty is a powerful portable vaporizer and is really one of the most enjoyable for longer more intense sessions. If you are looking for strong reliable vaporizer the Mighty is  solid option. If the size of the Mighty is just to big for what your looking for than have a look at the Crafty above. If the Crafty is to big than maybe the PAX 3 is more up your ally.

​Factors ​to consider when choosing the​ best portable dry herb vaporizer

What ​factors should you consider when searching for the best portable dry herb vaporizer? A dry herb vaporizer should be one made from durable and safe materials. It should deliver great tasting vapor. ​A quality vaporizer should not combust your material. ​Cannabis can be an expensive product to purchase, as such you want a vaporizer that will vape your material efficiently. A quality vaporizer should have a ​powerful long lasting and quick charging battery, and ​should be easy to use. ​

Portable vaporizers are a great way to take your medical herbs while living a more active lifestyle. There are a lot of different companies making portable dry herb vape pen devices. Some are in the industry to make a quick buck, while others are very passionate about the products that they make.

What is a Cannabis Vaporizer?

Vaporizers were initially humidifying devices that had therapeutic traits, but thanks to the weed legalization laws in some parts of the world and positive changes in the general opinion on marijuana we now have a thriving cannabis vaporizer ​industry. As the name itself suggests, a cannabis vaporizer is an electronic inhalation device designed to ​extract the active ingredients in cannabis. You can learn more about cannabis vaporizers be reading our beginners guide.

What are the benefits of using a Cannabis Dry Herb Vaporizer?

Vaporizing has many long-term health benefits since it eliminates tar and carcinogens by heating cannabis at lower temperatures than combustion. Using a cannabis vaporizer can help you taste the flavor better, but it also gets you very high. Another very noticeable advantage is the fact that most cannabis vaporizers are very discreet and don’t emit such a strong smell. They also produce less visible smoke. Getting a good dry herb vape pen is important when trying to achieve these benefits. A good vape pen will also save you money in the long run since it will optimize the amount of herb you use, and will also allow you to re-use the herb you use for things like making edibles.

Performance and Vapor Quality of the Utillian 651

Powered by 3 pre set heating temperatures the Utillian 651 vaporizer does not offer a very wide range in heating options. Luckily the 3 default settings are chosen well and switching between them should deliver enjoyable results. The lowest temperature is set at 196C, the medium to 204C and the highest at 212C.

As the vapor is heated in the ceramic heating chamber which uses conduction heating it travels upwards into the glass mouthpiece to deliver a pure smooth hit. The lower two temperatures deliver stronger taste while the hottest produces the most visible vapor.

Portability and Battery

Battery power is where the Utillian 651 packs its punch. With up to 3 hours of usage time this is one of the longest lasting portable vaporizers in the under $200 price range.

Shaped like a flask this unit may be considered discrete in terms of looking like a vaporizer, but it raises alarm in its disguise. If someone is intrigued by the flask or perhaps you are in a no drinking area then closer inspection would reveal your little secret. For this reason I would say that this is not a discrete vaporizer and is more of a novelty device.

On a comfort-ability scale I would say that this is a nice vape to carry around and also to hold while using. Similar to a flask it is curved to fit nicely in your pocket. When you are using the Utillian 651 it feels like you are taking a sip from a flask.

Pros

Here are a few points that make the Utillian 651 a vaporizer worth considering:

  • Long lasting battery life
  • Unique flask shape
  • Above average build quality
  • Very easy to use and maintain
  • 3 well chosen heat settings
  • Budget friendly - priced very competitively

Cons

No portable vaporizer is perfect. Here are a few reasons why you may not like the Utillian 651 vaporizer:

  • Not designed for wax concentrates or liquids
  • Does not offer precision range temperature
  • No screen to display information
  • Does not use convection vaporization
Utillian 651 Review

Overall Thoughts on the Utillian 651 Vaporizer

For the low price point and the extra long lasting battery I think this device is a good deal. Utillian is known for making strong performing devices that are made with high quality components. The 3 temperature settings do not offer a wide range of heat settings but the 3 that have been chosen work well. The appearance of the Utillian 651 is my favorite aspect of this device as it speaks class to me. Failling somewhere in between the Utillian 420 and the Utillian 721 the 651 has its niche.

XVape Fog Vaporizer – Hybrid Convection

Hybrid vaporizers bring you the best of conduction and convection heating methods. The XMax XVape Fog vaporizer is the first hybrid vaporizer that X​Vape has brought to market. X​Vape is known for making powerful affordable vaporizers for both dry herbs and wax concentrates. Today we take a closer look at the new XVape Fog to see how it stacks up against the competition. We will touch on the build quality, vapor production, portability, ease of use and ​pros and cons of this new compact portable vaporizer.

XMax XVape Fog Vaporizer

Build Quality of the X​Vape Fog Vaporizer

The XVape Fog vaporizer ​is built with a thick anodized aluminum shell. This thick shell gives the unit a rugged feel and ​tough casing. Magnetic components are becoming increasingly more popular with portable vaporizers, ​lowering the cost of production while ​increasing ​ease of use. The magnetic mouthpiece top and ​makes for quick loading and easy maintenance​. A jewelry grade ceramic mouthpiece sits on top of the Fog which helps to cool down the vapor as it heads towards your mouth.

Vapor Production and Smoothness

​The Fog has five default temperature settings that range from 356 F up to 428 F. ​Each temperature ​setting is displayed by the five ​green LED lights ​located on the side of the unit. When you have 1 light blinking it is heating up to the lowest temperature, when the light turns solid it has reached that temperature. The higher 4 temperatures work the same way.

The lower 3 temperatures deliver more flavor while the higher 2 temperatures give you easily noticeable increased vapor density. The powerful battery and hybrid heating is able to heat your material quickly enough to get a good draw ​within 30 to 40 seconds. On a single load you will be able to get around 10 solid draws.

The hybrid heating that the Fog vaporizer uses allows for your material to be heated evenly and also quickly. One area where 100% convection vaporizers fall short at times is the length of time you must wait before getting a good draw. The hybrid heating that encompasses both convection and conduction allows for this problem to be addressed while still getting smooth flavorful vapor.

The Fog is 80% convection and 20% conduction at the start of your session and likely a smaller gap for longer sessions. If you vape for around 10 minutes the heat transfer to the oven will eventually result in a higher conduction percentage.

​How to achieve the smoothest draw

​XVape has created a special fitting attachment that allows you to use the Fog with a recycler (water piece). To achieve a cooler smoother hit you can filter your vapor through water filtration and ice. The combination of primarily convection heating with water and ice creates a great tasting cool hit.

Battery and Portability

The XVape Fog vaporizer uses a powerful 2600 mAh removeable battery. ​Removable batteries extend the life of your vaporizer and limits the amount of time you can vape only by how many batteries you ​have. The Fog communicates the remaining battery life through the LED light located around the micro USB charging slot.

Compact and durable are two of the key factors that make the X​Vape Fog a great portable unit. The thick anodized housing allows you to bring this vape on your travels without having to be super delicate with it. You can pick up additional Samsung 18650 batteries for very cheap online.

Ease of Use​

Taking advantage of the popular one button design, the Fog is a very straightforward vaporizer to use. To load the Fog you flip open the ​magnetic mouthpiece ​giving you access to the loading chamber. You load dry herb material directly into it and use the ​extract pad for concentrates.

The Fog is activated and deactivated by pressing the power button three times in a row. The light above the micro-USB port displays your remaining battery life - Green: Full, Purple: Medium, Red: Low. The Fog's temperature can be changed by holding down the power button; the five-light LED gauge displays your current temp level.

Pros of the XVape Fog Vaporizer

  • Convection hybrid heating
  • Strong build
  • Can be used while charging
  • Removable/replaceable battery
  • Affordable for the performance
  • Attachments for water pieces

Cons of the X​Vape Fog Vaporizer

  • No app connectivity
  • Not precision range temperature (pre-set temp options)

Final Thoughts and Where To Buy the X​Vape Fog Vaporizer​

Considering the Fog falls into the vaporizers under 200 category with a low price tag of around $150 - it is one of the cheaper convection vaporizers available. XVape is a well established vaporizer company that has a number of highly recommended products.

Boundless Tera Vaporizer – Powerful Convection Heat Sink

The Boundless Tera vaporizer is a new portable dry herb vaporizer that uses convection heating to vape your loose leaf material. The Tera has a few features that are only available in a handful of other devices. The Tera is the 3rd vaporizer model from Boundless with the other two being the Boundless CFC and Boundless CFX. Convection vaporizers are growing in popularity because of their ability to heat material more evenly and efficiently. In this article we will touch on the new features of the Boundless Tera and how it looks against the best portable dry herb vaporizers in the industry.

Boundless Tera Vaporizer Features

Convection Heating

The new Boundless Tera uses convection heating to heat dry herb materials. Convection heating is becoming more important to people who are making their first vaporizer purchase. The alternative is to get a vaporizer that uses a form of conduction heating. Conduction is where you material is heated through surface touch while convection heating is through the pathway that hot air is forced through. Convection heating is something that will make the Tera vaporizer one of the more favorable options on people's lists.

Boundless Tera Vaporizer

Heat Sink Chamber

A heat sink is something that we have only seen in one other portable vaporizer. The Ghost MV1 is a new innovative vaporizer that was also released in 2017. The Ghost MV1 uses a heat sink as well. In addition to using a heat sink the Boundless Tera vaporizer looks like it may also be offered with a glass mouthpiece. The combination of a glass mouthpiece and a heat sink will make for a smooth cooled down hit. The Ghost MV1 vaporizer uses this combo and it seems to work very well. The heat sink chamber will use rings that heat up

Wide Range Precise Temperature

Magnetic Mouthpiece

Precision temperature is a feature that makes a vaporizers feel more personal. Using preset temperatures restricts you from finding the setting that works best for you and the strain of material you like to use. The Boundless Tera allows you to choose between a wide temperature range to 1 degree of precision.

Magnetic components are growing in popularity and for good reason. Using magnets allows you to quickly reload the chamber and makes device maintenance very easy. Vaporizers that use twist on screw style components tend to get material stuck in them and also take longer to take off and put back in place.

Dual External Batteries

A feature I personally like is the option to use extra batteries. The Tera not only uses external batteries but it uses two very powerful ones. If you are looking for a vaporizer that will be able to last for a long time, the Tera will do this.

The Tera vaporizer using 2 powerful batteries is also good for another reason. With the power that the Tera has under the hood it is able to reach a good vaping temperature much faster then some of the other convection vaporizers on the market.

Similar Vaporizers / Competition

The main competitors to the Boundless Tera will be the other convection devices. The current top convection vaporizers are the Mighty and Crafty, the Utillian 721, and the Ghost MV1.

How Much is the Tera Vaporizer

Boundless Tera is looking like it will be around the $200 mark. The devices we compared the Tera to in this article are all priced well over the $250 mark. At around $200 the Tera is priced competitively and should do pretty well.

Build Quality

Build quality of Boundless vaporizers is above average. The Tera vaporizer model will also be of high quality materials. The heat sink itself is aluminum, the mouthpiece is magnetic, and we have heard their will also be a glass version. The batteries as we have mentioned are two powerful external cells.

Vapor Quality

We are currently unable to touch on the vapor quality of the Boundless Tera. When we have had some more insight into the performance of the Tera we will update this section. Convection vaporizers are known to be more flavorful and heat materials more evenly. We hope that the Tera can meet our expectations and optimize the material placed in its oven.

When and Where Can You Get the Tera Vaporizer

The Tera vaporizer by Boundless is to be released any day now. You will be able to get the Tera vaporizer online here.
