Check out the top selling portable vaporizers of 2019 by PAX Labs. The newest PAX vaporizer is compact, powerful, smooth, fast, and efficient.
It has been a little over 2 years since Cloudious9 released its innovative portable water filtration vaporizer. The Hydrology9 resembled that of a futuristic lightsaber lava lamp. We are happy to announce that Cloudious9 has just released a new portable vaporizer called the Atomic9 vaporizer. In this Atomic9 Vaporizer Review, I share a few positives and negatives that I have found after using the new portable vaporizer after 2 months of daily usage.
The Atomic9 is the 2nd vaporizer in Cloudious9’s growing lineup up devices. This new compact portable vaporizer is designed with hybrid heating. It uses a mixture of conductive and convection heating to heat dry herbs. The patent-pending ‘dual-layer’ heating makes sure that your materials are used effectively. It is unusual for convection vaporizers to come in smaller sizes due to the size of the battery required to heat with this oven method. The Atomic9 vaporizer, however, can do this without such a large battery, which has resulted in a very cost-effective portable convection vaporizer. Along with the release of the Atomic9 Cloudious9 has also released news of the Tectonic9 Grinder.
I received the Atomic 9 about 2 weeks ago and have been using it almost daily since that time. There are some positive things I would like to share about this portable vaporizer and some negative things that I would like to share as well.
First and foremost I would like to say that the value in terms of cost is one of the best I have seen. For a low price of $59 the Atomic9 works very well. The price compared to quality and performance is definitely the greatest strength of this device. It works just as good as some of the top devices which cost upwards of $300. The Atomic9 is pretty easy to clean and takes about a minute to unclog the vapor path. Using the vaporizer is very simple, you just click the only button 3 times and it will begin heating up and turn green after about 20-35 seconds in my experience. A few other positives are the quick heat-up time, the small size, and the overall quality.
The negative criticisms I have about the Atomic9 are me being a bit nitpicking. I personally think that vaporizers should beep or vibrate when they have reached the desired heating temperature. This missing feature makes me miss 1 or 2 sessions because I turn it on and get slightly distracted and since the Atomic9 only stays on for 2 minutes at a time, by the time I remember I turned it n it cycled through and vapes my herb without me using it. Not including the components required to make this happen, I’m sure it helps to keep the costs and price as low as they are.. but this is one of my negative points I’d like to share.
Another negative point is that the kit does not come with an oven clearing tool or air path chamber cleaning poker. I have to use a safety pin or something similar each time I want to clear the herb out and unclog the air path. Again I’m sure not including this tool allows for the price to be kept at $59, but something that would be useful for sure. A final negative, in my opinion, is the pop-up herb funnel that allows you to scoop dry herb into the oven chamber. I say this is negative because it’s easier to use your hands and pretend like this component does not exist. It is a neat idea, but not something I personally use.
After usage of 2 months with the Atomic9, I can confidently say that this device holds its own in terms of value. Dollar for dollar in comparison to other devices on the market the Atomic9 is one of the best devices you can get.
Looking for the ultimate portable vaporizer bundle package? Cloudious9 has a deal where you can get the Hydrology9, Atomic9, Tectonic9, and the leather carrying/protective case for the Hydrology9.
Below is more general information on the Atomic9 vaporizer.
Made to be effective right out of the box. The Atomic9 has six preset temperature settings in the range of 356F to 428F. This range is perfect to get quality rips that deliver an enjoyable herbal taste.
Residue build-up can get sticky! The biggest issue with most portable vaporizers is that they are a big hassle to maintain after a few weeks of use. The vapor paths start to get more narrow the oven lid doesn’t close as well, and there are areas that you can’t get to properly clean and restore your device to working condition. The Atomic9 has been designed to help fix this issue. All areas that typically get residue/tar build-up are accessible or detachable to give a quick clean.
Fumble and waste your precious herb no more! The Atomic9 boosts an easy loader that makes repacking the oven chamber quick and easy. This is a unique component similar to the built-in oven stir stick that we saw with the Hydrology9.
When dealing with smaller vaporizers that have the heating components very close to the mouthpiece and your lips an often downfall is that the vapor will remain too hot as it enters the user’s mouth. The Atomic9 has been thoughtfully designed to cool down the vapor as it enters your mouth. Built into the magnetic lid is a cooling chamber that helps to lower the temperature while providing a rich tasting vapor.
It wouldn’t by a device from Cloudious9 if it didn’t have some sort of new innovative technological components built into it. Following in the footsteps of the Hydrology9 the Atomic9 utilizes both convection and conduction heating. This patent-pending heating method makes this a unique new portable vaporizer.
For a very affordable budget vaporizer, the Atomic9 spared no expense with its quality of the material. The design is built to be strong and withstand some serious collisions. The shell is made of an anodized aluminum casing.

The growing portable vaporizer and vape pen market has been off the hook these past few years. Popular portable oil vaporizers like the Pax Era, Quant Wave, and Kandypens Rubi are being greeted by the new and improved Stiiizy vaporizer oil pen called the Biiig Stiiizy.
To use the Biiig Stiiizy, you need to do just two things – place the pod into the battery and inhale. Yes, it’s that simple. No buttons, just use it until it runs out of juice and then reload. The Biiig Stiiizy like the original Stiiizy has an automatic draw detection system that heats up the coils as you take your hit.
This is a bit of a tricky thing to measure as an all encompassing answer since it really depends on the type of oil that you are vaping. When and doubt just go with a high quality oil so that your not let down. Some less quality oils are not the greatest so if you want to get teh best results spend a bit more on your oils.
The Biiig Stiiizy comes as just the battery mod component which is a quality made product. The pods are sold separately so you will need to pick up some from a local dispensary that sells the.
The Biiig Stiiizy pods are compatible with both the original Stiiizy and the Biiig Stiiizy. The new larger Stiiizy has a longer battery life which makes it more portable. The size of the Biiig Stiiizy is still pretty small even though its the larger of the two models.
The Biiig Stiiizy is an improved version of the original model. The first versions performance and battery life were not the greatest. This has been given attention and the new version performs better and has a longer lasting battery. The no button design makes using the Biiig Stiiizy very simple and there isn’t much you can do wrong when trying to use it. At a price of around $35 this is a pretty good device.
The new PAX Era 2 vaporizer pen system is an innovative device that brings a marketplace community together. The Era pod system is one that allows local cannabis growers and dispensaries to fill the pods with their own sativa, indica, and cbd strains. In this post we look at how the PAX Era 1 has changed the way consumers vape cannabis oils and speculate on what the new PAX Era 2 will feature.
The PAX Era is a smart vaporizer that has special features that allow the device to connect to a smart device. Using a smart phone you are able to customize your sessions and design the vaping experience you’re looking for. You can set preferences for potency and flavor strengths with Session Control. You can adjust temperature up and down to precise degrees. You can have an updated device at all times with automatic firmware updates.
The PAX Era pods are not filled by PAX (the manufacturer of the vaporizer), the pods are filled by local growers and dispensaries who each produce their own cannabis oils. This is a effective marketing strategy that strengthens PAX’s hold on the vaporizer industry. The outcome of allowing local business’s and dispensaries to also profit off of the refills of Era pods means that PAX has created an army of promoters that want consumers to continue using their devices to up sell their cannabis oils.
The new PAX Era 2 is going to have the same advantage as their is already a large number of local companies that support the pod system. You can view a list of the Era pods here, which allows you to sort by location, strain type, price, desired effect, potency and brand. As of March 2019 there are over 450 Era pod options to choose from on the official PAX Era Pod site.
The PAX Era is designed to be very precise, highly reliable, and easily controlled so that you enjoy each and every session had with it. It is a seamless process to charge, update, and try new strains.
The vapor quality is what one can expect from devices manufactured by PAX. The dual wick system makes way for vapor that is rich and dense. The New PAX Era 2 will produce smooth vapor instantly similar to the Era 1 as there is no waiting time for the pen to warm up.
As touched on briefly above the PAX Era temperature settings can be controlled by a smart device. The heating is controlled by an algorithm which helps to automatically adjust the temperature as you take your draws and as the weather around the device fluctuates.
The Era 2 wouldn’t be a PAX device without the quarky little games that are built into the device. Similar to the PAX 3 the Era has a few games that you can play by rotating the device in your hands.
The new PAX Era 2 will likely resemble the first model and be compact, thin, and made of a very durable scratch resistant outer casing. The model 1 comes in silver, rose gold, gold, and black. Measuring just 3 inches long, with a PAX symbol that uses full-color LEDs, the Era is a light weight portable oil vaporizer.
Vape users want an efficient delivery of oil extracts. The extensive testing with Quant Wave has resulted in up to three times the vapor production in comparison to other vape oil devices.
Fast Charging & Pass-through
With pass through charging you’ll never have a time when you can’t use the Quant Wave. Pass through charging means the device can be plugged in to charge and be used at the same time. You get a full charge in about 25 minutes.
Simple to Use
The pods designed for the Quant Wave are made to work with multiple temperature options. This is because there is also a wide selection of oil formulas that can be vaped with the Wave pods. The Wave is plug and play and there is no temperature adjustment by the user required.
The Quant Vaporizer Wave pods use wickless ceramic atomizer technology that is proprietary. The pods are designed to work with thick distillate formulas.
The design of this innovative oil pod system has results in large flavorful hits. The oil pods for the Quant Wave are disposable. The size of the pods are .5 grams and 1 gram. The pods are designed to showcase the oils and the brands that bring the vape and pods together.
The pods and the oil vaporizer have been calibrated to function with many vicosities of oil. THC oils, CBD oils from different cannabis brands have boiling points that are compatible to work with the Quant Wave Pods.
You can also create your own branded Quant Wave devices. This is a unique feature that allows you to make cool promo products for your employees, investors, and customers of your brand.
We find this to be a very interesting option provided by Quant that if we get the demand for these new oil pod vaporizers that Vaporsmooth may offer a branded version of our own!

The portable vaporizer is a small, handy device that is changing lifestyles. Many smokers have dropped the traditional flame in favor of the vape. There are many great portable vaporizers to choose from – here we take a look at two of the most popular brands – PAX and DaVinci.
Naturally, portable vaporizer users would want the ultimate vaping experience as well as value for money. Hence, the logical choices would be the premium models – DaVinci Miqro and Pax 3 – from among the many available in the market.
Currently, the competition between the two iconic brands just intensified. Both are engaged in an intense battle to win the hearts of portable vaporizer users. Their respective lead products boast of excellent features and functionality that perhaps only a thin line separates them.
To begin the comparison, the Miqro 3 is the newest entry to the market where the Pax 3 is presently lording over. Thus, the Miqro 3 is the challenger to the throne held by what users claim as the best if not the smartest of the lot.
The diminutive Pax 3 is the acknowledged titan of the industry. The design of the anodized aluminum, four-inch-tall vaporizer is ergonomic. It carries a simple yet intuitive interface.
Assembly is effortless as the lids and mouthpieces are magnetically attached. There’s a lip-sense technology to make vaping simple.
Miqro 3 is smaller in size but actually the petite version of its highly-popular predecessor, the DaVinci IQ. This is by far the extremely portable vape. The 15 grid LED display embedded in the handsome, elegant design is a marvel to the eyes. For portable vaporizer users, Miqro 3 is very easy to use.
In terms of substance compatibility, the Pax 3 is compatible with wax concentrates and dry herb. The Miqro is well-suited for dry herb only.
Conduction is the heating system of both. But in so far as oven size is concerned, the Pax 3 can take in up to 0.3 grams of herb. The smaller Miqro has a smaller oven but features a zirconium pearl. While the oven is relatively small to hold enough herb, it is ideal for solo sessions.
The Pax 3 earned its lofty position in the market because of its extensive features. Users will gain complete and full control of the vaporizer with its Smartphone App.
That is an outstanding feature if you want a more customized vaping experience, especially when using the dynamic modes. The size of Pax 3’s oven can also be adjusted as there are three different oven lids to choose from.
On the other hand, the Miqro is unbeatable if you want a device with absolute portability. Aside from this standout feature, the pocket-sized vaporizer has the DaVinci IQ’s Smart Path mode. The temperature increases gradually as you vape.
You will also notice the pearl on the inside of the Miqro’s chamber cover. It allows the user to adjust the oven size while providing an even distribution of heat. In addition, portable vaporizer users have several customization options with the integrated precision temperature control.
Undeniably, both vaporizers have unique features. However, the Miqro’s Smart Path can operate without the smartphone app. and its oven size adjuster is also built in. With the Pax 3, the smartphone app. is required in order to go into the advanced customization.
The Pax 3 battery is non-replaceable but chargeable. It can last for 90 minutes with charging time of about 2 hours.
The Miqro battery is replaceable and chargeable but the duration time is shorter (20-30 minutes).
The Pax 3 has proven that is one of the most reliable and top-of-mind vapes. There are no adverse feedbacks as to dependability. The brand reputation remains solid. The product warranty is 10 years.
Even if the Miqro is comparatively new, DaVinci vaporizers are known to durable and made to last. Users can expect this device to perform in a similar fashion after years of use. The product warranty is 5 years
Given the tale of the tape, it’s a head-to-head battle between the legend and the upstart. With no clear, runaway advantage, the decision might rest on three things: price, size, and brand preference.
The Pax 3 retails for $249.99 and if you purchase directly from PAX Vapor, you get the full 10-year warranty. The Miqro 3, which is the ultra-portable version of the classic DaVinci IQ, sells for $199.00 directly from DaVinci.
Both products are terrific choices. No vape comes close to the premium features of either device. You’re making a wise decision if you invest in the Pax 3 or the Miqro. But the best part is that you get to own the best the vaping space has ever produced. And that’s a fact.
Canadian vaporizer manufacturer Arizer has recently brought to market a new portable vaporizer called the Argo or Arizer ‘Go‘. Arizer is known for manufacturing high quality devices that have strong long lasting batteries. The first vaporizer from Arizer was a desktop model that is required to be plugged in to a power source. The V Tower is a budget friendly desktop device that performs at the same level as more expensive brands.
Arizer followed up the success of there first vaporizer with the Extreme Q, Solo 1, Solo 2, and Arizer Air. Focusing on performance and quality while maintaining budget friendly devices has helped Arizer become one of the most popular vaporizer companies in the world. Here we will take a closer look at the Arizer Argo vaporizer.
The Argo is considered an easy to use inhalation device. To turn the Argo on you will need to press and hold both the M and the + button for several seconds while the unit turns on. You will hear a beep that signals the vaporizer has turned on. To cycle through the various temperature options you can use the + and – buttons. You can select a temperature to one degree of precision up to 220 degrees celsius.
To load the Arizer Argo, you can push down the mouthpiece shield which protects the glass mouthpiece tube. This motion will allow the glass mouthpiece to be exposed and you can remove it to fill it with herbs. The glass mouthpiece’s double as the oven loading chamber. You can twist the bottom of the glass tube into ground up herb to fill it. Once this is done you place the tube back into position. Now you are ready to vape.
The Argo is an interesting unit. One may think that a portable vaporizer is suppose to be a quick hitter that you can quickly use on demand. The Argo is a bit more of a time consuming portable vaporizer as it takes a while to finish an oven load. Initially it takes a bit of time to get a first good draw, and due to the convection nature of how your herbs are stored in the vaporizer it takes a bit longer to fully vape the contents. The flavor is pretty good with the Argo as it is heated evenly gradually.
Comparing the Arizer Air 2 and the Arizer Argo the batteries are similar. However, due to the Argo taking longer for a single session you will not be able to get as many sessions out of the Argo as the Air. The Argo is more compact and has more features than the Air. For the first model of the Argo it does pretty good with this battery.
If you have a friend who is also interested in getting the Arizer Argo you can both save buy buying at the same time. Some of the best deals and special offers are available from Vape-Smart, you can view the Arizer Argo on Vape-Smart here.
The Arizer Go is definitely the most portable and most discreet Arizer unit to date and will definitely find a home with people who prefer longer sessions that are full of flavor. However, the Arizer Solo 2 still remains the most powerful of the Arizer line.

The cannabis industry continues to move forward at a relentless pace amidst all the backlash from strict government regulations around the world. The people have spoken and when there is a movement as powerful as the one behind the cannabis industry there is not much hope in stopping it. Companies like Quest, are bringing to market new and innovative ideas that make us rethink what cannabis consumption is all about. The Aero Inhaler Vaporizer seen here is a prime example of new ways to consume medical and recreational marijuana.
The Quest AeroInhaler is a new device that allows you to inhale puffs of approximately 10 mg of THC every time. Each cartridge gives you 100 puffs and can be picked up at many of the top dispensaries. The puffs send THC distillate directly into your lungs with no heat applied. This means there is no combustion which greatly reduces any irritating or burning of the throat.
The AeroInhaler is the most simple cannabis delivery system on the market. You just place the actuator between your lips and press down. The Aersol delivers an excellent blend of herbal terpy flavor.
A major concern with regular dab hits and dry herb hits using both the traditional flame and regular vaporizers is the whole guessing game behind the potency of each hit. With the Quest AeroInhaler, you are more in control of each session as it delivers the same dose with each puff.
Quest distillate delivers pure THC that helps to eliminate the buzzy head high of a Sativa and the couch burdening low of an Indica. A measured, and metered dose allows you to get the desired effect you are after and not over do yourself by accident. The Quest distillate is created with added live resin which delivers great tasting terpins.
One of the big problems plaguing pretty much every other type of cannabis consumption method besides edibles is the smell. The distinct potency of cannabis although quite delightful to some, is a red flag and dead give a way to others.
The Quest AeroInhaler is unique in that it has no odor that people around you can detect. This unit is truly one of the most discreet cannabis consumption methods that exists.
Quest AeroInhaler is made with pharmaceutical-grade components. It is recommended to clean the actuator valve that dispenses the doseage on a frequent basis. Keeping the actuator clean will ensure that you are receiving the proper dosage level of each puff.
KandyPens last ever vaporizer is finally here! Jk'ing, they'll probably have 10 more out by the end of the week ;). The new KandyPens RUBI has taken a page from the PAX Labs JUUL playbook. Resembling the PAX Era the KandyPens RUBI is a liquid oil refillable pod based system. In this article we will explain what exactly this means and also touch on the build quality and performance of this new KandyPens entry.
Ask and you shal receive! The KandyPens Rubi is similar in looks to the popular PAX Era pod vaporizer. The RUBI is however more versatile and has a specific feature that most will be happy to hear about. The KandyPens take on a refillable thin liquid vape pen uses an 'open based system' opposed to a locked in pod system. By this I mean to say that with the RUBI you are able to easily fill the pods with your own e-juice and own CBD or THC liquids.
I think one of the reasons why some of the other pod systems were built as enclosed systems was the fact that they did not have a good way to allow an open based system while keeping it leak proof. KandyPens has created a very simple 'door' or 'slot' that you just press into place and remove easily to solve this issue. I'm sure another reason for the enclosed system of other devices is to keep you ordering their pods as a money grab, but you don't have to worry about that with the RUBI.
A ceramic coil is the heating element that is surrounded by a Japanese cotton around the coil with a stainless tube inside. The coil itself is 1.6 Ohm with a 8.5 watt battery giving 3.7 volts.
Weighing just half an ounce the RUBI is one of the lightest vape pens you can find. The thin design makes it extremely pocket friendly and portable. This to me is one of the most portable wax pens available. The battery is pretty small and will not last as long as most of the big pens will. On a single charge you will get around 30 to 50 rips on average. The battery does however charge very quickly at about 30 minutes.
The KandyPens RUBI can be purchased for under $50. This is a solid deal in my opinion as the product is well built and produces descent vapor. You can use it with both THC/CBD liquids and flavored vape juices. The low price point, small size, sleek look makes it a winner in my books.
