2017 marked a strong year for new vaporizer technology. One of the best examples of new technology in portable vaporizers is the Hydrology 9 vaporizer by Cloudious 9. For all intensive purposes the Hydrology 9 is a battery powered water recycler that resembles that of a light saber. Entering into the new year, we expect the Hydrology 9 continue to grow in popularity on an international level.

Hydrology 9 was first released in May of 2017. Since this time it has climbed the vaporizer ranking charts to take hold of one of the top spots. Made with space grade materials, borsillicate / acrylic glass, and able to hold more water than any other portable water filtration vaporizer. This innovative piece of vaping technology does come at a price – it will cost you roughly $250. When looking at the big picture as to what this device offers I believe it is worth this price tag. a small price to pay to experience vapor production and consumption in a whole new way.
We’re not the only ones who have been star struck by this new device. Here is what a few of the big cannabis press coverage sites have had to say about it.
Forbes – “The Hydrology9 Water Filtration Vaporizer Brings Bongs Into The Age Of Vapes”
HERB – “Perfect for anyone who wants the experience of using a bong with the health benefits of a vaporizer.”
Gizmodo – “The vapor this thing puts out is just so damn good that it’s impossible not to love it.”
Vape critics and customers may have there disagreements with many of the devices in the vaporizer industry But they have come to terms on the Hydrology 9 – It’s a device worth owning. Here at VaporSmooth we have the Hydrology 9 ranked as one of the best dry herb vaporizers under $250.
Until you have used a water filtration vaporizer you will not be able to get the complete picture of how refreshing a hit can be while still delivering the same overall cannabis effect. The volume of water that you can pass vapr through with the Hydrology 9 is similar to that of a recycler. Similar but different, since whats passing through is not smoke – its vapor. Pretty much you need to try it to get it. I still like using different vaporizers, but one thing is for sure. I will always have a water filtration vaporizer as part of my options to choose from.
Being an owner of the Hydrology 9 vaporizer myself I am able to touch on the overall enjoyment that I get from using this device. There is something about it that speaks quality – the hits are smooth, the appearance is elegant, the vapor is plentiful. I honestly feel much more energetic the next morning when I have a session with the H9 instead of smoking a J. The lungs are clearer and running is not as much of a task and has become once again something I enjoy.

The Dabado Bolt 2 is the next generation in the Bolt line. This new model has a built in LCD screen with a temperature display and a battery usage indicator as well. The Dabado Bolt 2 package comes with an extra heating element in the kit which acts as a backup in the case that you end up using this thing to the max for a while and need it replaced. This extra heating attachment adds a great deal of value to the package an should give this product a long shelf life.
The Dabado Bolt is one of the flagship devices from Dabado and is one of the easiest and most powerful portable dabbing vaporizer on the market. You no longer have to deal with a rig/torch setup or even have to be plugged into a wall as the case with desktop enail vaporizers. The image below shows you the Dabado Bolt 2 with the included glass piece and dab tool/carb cap.
Using the Dabado Bolt 2 is very easy - before you start using it with your material (wax/dabs) you will want to make sure to charge the device fully to start the battery off on the right footing. Secondly you should run the enail on a high temperature just to burn away any excess material that might have gotten in the nails - you can do this with all 3 of them. After you do this the device is ready for you to start dabbing with.
The device turns on with a few clicks of the power button and using the same button you can cycle through the temperature settings. You will attach the water attachment and when ready to dab hold down the fire button to get the nail up to temperature, use your dab tool to place the wax in the nail, and inhale. You will then use the carb cap to trap in the heat and get a good hit.
Very impressed with the hits you get with this little unit. The Bolt 2 is quick and powerful with all three of the included nails. My personal preference is the ceramic as it delivers the best taste in my opinion.
If you are looking for another option for doing dabs I recommend taking a look at the Atmos Studio Rig. The Atmos Studio Rig connects on to a vape mod using a 510 attachment. This allows you to turn your vape eliquid vaporizer into a powerful dabbing enail unit. You can check out the Atmos Studio Rig here.
Here is a video of the Dabado Bolt 2 where you can see the types of hits you can expect from this device. The video also shows how easy it is to replace the heating element, and the device being used with various glass pieces and a larger recycler. The Bolt is a versatile product and in my opinion one of the better enails on the market. This unit just really stands out to me as it looks cool, its powerful, and the sessions are very enjoyable.
Included in the package you get is the vaporizer enail itself, a carrying case, a powerful 18650 battery, the Bolt 2 magnetic stand, a silicon protector, silicon container for your waxes, a glass attachment, 3 different e-nails (a ceramic one, a quartz one, and a titanium one). The Dabado Bolt 2 as we mentioned above now comes with a extra heating element, and of course the USB charger and user manual. This package is a good deal and makes the Bolt a strong competitor in the vaporizers under 250 category.
When buying a portable vaporizer the best place to make your purchase is through the official manufacturers website. In the vaporizer industry there are many sites that offer cheap knockoff products similar to fake sunglasses and watches. You can be sure you are getting a genuine Dabado Bolt 2 by visiting the official Dabado website at https://dabadovaporizers.com/products/black-bolt-2-kit.

Vaporizers are devices that people use to vaporize the active ingredients of plant material. The most commonly vaped plants are cannabis and tobacco. Tobacco obviously being a big draw for e-cig users who are looking for a slightly healthier method to get their nicotine fix. But more and more we are seeing new companies and a rapidly growing consumer base in the cannabis industry looking for a healthier method to take their THC cannabis or CBD products.
A vaporizer is a electronic device that consists of a battery, electrical components, an oven, and a heating element. There are many different types of vaporizers, both portable and desktop and come in all shapes and sizes. We will touch on all these different types of vaporizers in the next section. Vaporizers are designed to turn the ingredients of a substance into vapor and through inhaling will enter into your body.
Vaporizers heat your material at a heat temperature that is lower than that of combustion. By not using a flame, you are severely lowering the amount of harmful tar and carcinogens that may otherwise enter into your body. The lower heat level is a much more efficient extraction process of plant ingredients and helps to remove the harmful effects of smoking and also second hand smoke.
Vaporizers are becoming a more popular personal device as seen by tremendous growth in the portable vaporizer industry. With people all over the world making the switch from cigarettes to e-cigarettes, and also from joints, pipes and bongs to dry herb and concentrate vaporizers this makes for a large user base wanting a new age product. Even more so people are starting to experiment with and utilize the other less known compounds in cannabis plants such as Cannabinoids (CBD). CBD is the second most found chemical compound in hemp. You can read more on CBD here.
Depending on a persons purpose of why they want to use a vaporizer will determine the type of vaporizer required. The most popular types of vaporizers are dry herb vaporizers, concentrate vaporizers, and liquid vaporizers. Vaporizers come in all shapes and sizes and the price range varies from $10 portable disposable vapes to $600 premium desktop vaporizers.
Multi material vaporizers - Also known as 3 in 1 and 2 in 1 vaporizers, these devices are designed to to vape multiple mediums of material which include dry herbs, concentrates, and e-liquids.
Dry herb vaporizers - as the name implies dry herb vaporizers are designed to vape only dry herb materials. This is the plant leaf itself that you are able to place in the vaporizers oven and turn the active ingredients into vapor. Dry herb vaporizers are currently the most popular type of cannabis vaporizer being purchased. Vaporizers that are designed to vape just one or two mediums currently are regarded as being more optimized for those mediums that say a 3 in 1 vaporizer that is trying to make itself diverse enough to vape a mediums in one device.
Concentrate vaporizers - Concentrate vaporizers are designed to vape extracts such as Butane Hash Oil (BHO), wax concentrates, butter/budder, shatter/dabs. Concentrates are more potent than dry herbs and contain a higher level of THC. Concentrate vaporizers come in a number of different forms. Wax pens, e-nails/e-rigs, dabbing pens, and concentrate vaporizers are the types of devices available.
E-liquid vaporizers - also known as 'Vapes', e-liquid vaporizers are very popular in the form of regulated box mods, mechanical box mods, and tank systems. These are widely used for vape enthusiasts who like to produce big clouds, perform vapor cloud tricks, and often contain a percentage of nicotine in the e-juice.
CBD vaporizer - CBD vaporizers are one of the newest types of portable vaporizers and as of recently companies are beginning to sell very affordable and re-usable portable vaporizers that come with pre filled CBD oil cartridges. CBD is a compound found in hemp that does not make you high, this is to say that the heavier psychoactive ingredients that exist in THC do not exist in high traces in CBD products. CBD products are able to deliver the benefits of a hemp plant while being able to keep your mind un-altered.
Electronic hookah pens - Hookah pens are usually relatively cheap portable vaporizers that can be purchased as re-usable devices or often as packages of disposable electronic hookah pens. Hookah pens are often purchased for taste reasons as they contain flavored e-juices that can be quite tasty. Hookah pens can be purchased nicotine free making them available to a younger audience. Hookah pens can also be purchased with various levels of nicotine which many people use to help them selves quite smoking. Hookah pens are really very similar to e-liquid vaporizers but are just a much cheaper and again disposable vaping solution.
Vaporizers like all technology are getting more advanced. It was not that long ago when vaporizers were only comprised of a battery and a heating element. Today, we have portable vaporizers that can do much more than just turn on and heat up.
Vaporizers are now built with software that helps to perform your session in a specific way. If you are trying t not bother others you can turn on stealth mode, if you are trying to conserve battery you can turn on battery optimization mode. If you are trying to get the most of your material and savor the flavor you can turn on flavor mode. The software and app connectivity of portable vaporizers is just starting out. Future smart vaporizers will include a long list of features such as device locking, device location tracking, and more precise micro dosing.
One of the most advanced discreet vaporizers is currently the PAX 3. PAX 3 has several modes that allow you to get more from your portable vaporizer. The stealth mode helps to keep vapor to a minimum while delivering true flavor. You can learn more about the PAX 3 here.
New products are surfacing in the portable vaporizer industry that are making for some pretty cool devices. New technology in the portable vape industry has allowed for new devices to be integrated with software and bluetooth connectivity such as the PAX 3 and DaVinci IQ. Similar advancements in the vaping world are making way for devices that combine vaping technology with your existing products or add the element of H20. The vape market is booming with new companies and new products. Some of the new products that we will touch on here are devices that work as a vape bong either as a portable water vaporizer bong itself, or as stand alone devices that work with your bubblers and other glass pieces to combine the power of a vaporizer with your favorite devices.
As seen in the image above, a new product is just hitting the market called the Hydrology 9. The Hydrology 9 is the most innovative vape bong type device currently available. If you were looking for a futuristic portable vaping bubbler this product fits the description pretty well. The water vape bong is designed for dry herbs only at this point but may come with extra accessories down the road to vape concentrates as well. Built into the hydrology 9 portable vape bong is a stir stick that allows you to stir up your loose leafs without actually opening the material holder.

A product coming from one of the dominant portable vaporizer makers 'Yocan' is a device called the Torch. The Yocan Torch is a mini concentrate vape that connects to your bubbler to turn it into a vape bong. This nifty little gadget makes dabbing on the go extremely easy. Made from very durable materials you are able to through the Yocan Torch in your bag and head out to meet some friends. The Torch can be charged with the micro USB charger that comes with it. The rubber piece that attaches to the bottom of the Torch is shapped in a gradual form that creates an air tight seal where you place it in the spot that you would normally place your bubblers bowl. For larger bowls or different shapes you can flip the rubber piece around for more options. You can read more on the torch by reading our more in depth review and watching a video on it here. You can order one of the Torches by visiting vapes here.
Today there are many ways that you can integrate vaping devices with your existing smoking products to make them operate in a healthier manner. Instead of using combustion (flame) which releases more tar and carcinogens, you can attach a vaporizer which heats your material at a temperature that is less than that of combustion. You can stop by a local vape shop or lounge and pick up an attachment for very cheap that you can put on the end of a pen vape to use similar to how we described the Yocan Torch above. If you need directions to a local shop you can find them by visiting our article here - Vape Shop Near Me.

The Hydrology9 vaporizer is a dry herb vaporizer that uses liquid filtration to add an extra layer of filtering to the vapor path. The vaporizer industry is one of the fastest growing industries in North America. The Hydrology9 is available to purchase online and ships to most countries around the world. In this article we will be taking a closer look at the Cloudious9 Hydrology9 to see how the build quality, vapor quality, ease of use, portability, and overall customer experience stacks up against other popular devices in the industry.

A new component is now available for the Hydrology9. Enhancing on the overall build quality and durability of the device is a new acrylic glass foundation. For those of you who tend to be a bit clumsy or who want to bring the Hydrology9 on outdoor adventures, this will prove necessary. The regular glass cylinder that comes included is great for luxury, but let's face glass can break. This new acrylic component is nearly indestructible. If you are one of the unlucky few who have dropped and broken the glass component than you are a sure candidate for this accessory. You can pick one up here.
The Hydrology9 vaporizer in my opinion is one of the most well designed vaporizers with the best quality parts. The Hydrology9 is required to be built with more precision than other vaporizers because it needs to operate with a large volume of water flowing through its center. The borsilicate glass tube that takes up the larger surface space of the device needs to be made with precision. The glass tube needs to be a perfect fit between the base of the unit and the top of the unit.
As we mentioned above there is also the option to pick up the acrylic glass component for improved durability.
Built to be tough against one of natures most weathering compounds. The spacecraft aluminum housing is rust proof. The housing of the Hydrology9 vaporizer was chosen because it was the best material for the job. The housing it what gets tightened on either side of the borsillicate glass tube to create a water-leak seal. This design allows for easy maintenance and fresh water to be added very quickly.
On top of the Hydrology9 vaporizer you will find the lid which connects to the glass mouthpiece with a magnetic connection. The magnet connection holds on tight and works well for a few reasons. using the magnetic connection helps to create a water-leak seal and prevents water from funneling through the mouthpiece. The lid also has no grooves in it and since only the magnet holds it in place it is very easy to keep clean.
Carrying cases are the perfect companion product for many types of electronic devices. In the image below you will see the snug fitting custom made leather protector carrying case for the Hydrology9 vaporizer. This case keeps the Hydrology9 safe and has no wiggle room.
Overall the attention to detail and the original design of the Hydrology9 vaporizer is of high quality. The size and weight of this unit feels extremely tough and solid in your hands. I have tried squeezing the glass tube as hard as I can in my hands to see if it would break. Fortunately for me it seems to be very tough and did not break no matter how hard I squeezed. If you dropped the vaporizer and it landed on a rigid rock or solid surface it could break. In cases such as this you are able to purchase the individual components directly from Cloudious9.

Vapor production and vapor quality are the two areas of focus that make the Hydrology9 such a unique dry herb vaporizer. There are very few devices that use anywhere near the same volume of water that the Hydrology9 vaporizer uses. If you are using the Hydrology9 on one of the higher 2 temperatures in combination with only 20% water. You will be getting much more visible vapor that still has a bit of heat to it. If you use the Hydrology9 on one of the 3 lower temperatures and have about 70% water you will be getting a more flavorful draw with less visible vapor.
The Hydrology9 vaporizer has 5 preset temperatures. These 5 temperatures are indicated by the 5 different LED colors that light up as you cycle through them. The highest temperature is set very close to the temperature of combustion. If you are looking for the most visible vapor you can achieve this by having the highest setting on with minimal water in the tube.
In my opinion the 'Goldilock' zone where the vapor is not to hot and not to filtered was on the 'purple' heat setting. Purple is the second highest temperature. I found this heat setting to work well with about 45% water in the glass tube. Something I would like to see improved upon in the next generation of the Hydrology9 is the oven. As it stands the oven is not the best in the industry and could use some improvement.
The Hydrology9 vaporizer is smaller than I originally thought. The image below gives a good indication of the actual size. I myself have done a bit of traveling with the Hydrlogy9 and brought it up to a friends cottage. The device is definitely a conversation piece and I've found that friends who would typically say no to a quick hit have done the opposite and asked if they could give it a try.
The internal battery used by the Hydrology9 is a 2000 mAh lithium polymer one that is pretty good and seems to last quite a while. You can get over an hour of use or about 10 to 15 sessions on a full charge. The device takes about 2+ hours to charge and reaches your set heat temperature after about 60 seconds when starting a session.
Using just one button for all operations the Hydrology9 vaporizer is very easy to use. To turn the Hydrology9 vaporizer on you press the button 5 times and the same to turn it off. To cycle through the temperature options you just press the button once.
When you first get the Hydrology9 vaporizer it is a good idea to plug it in and make sure that it get's up to a full charge. Second, you should power it on when its charged and run it through the hottest heat setting for a 2 minute cycle with not material in it. This will give it a good clean to help give it a fresh start.
Located on the bottom of the Hydrology9 vaporizer is the oven lid. The oven lid has a built in stir stick that allows you to rotate your material while you are in the middle of your session. The Hydrology9 uses conduction heating which makes the stir stick an important component to help heat your materials more evenly.
Keeping the Hydrology9 clean is important. You don't want to leave the water in for too long or it can get grungy. I personally change the water in mine about once a week. The water has never actually been that dirty when I go to change it but it just makes sense to put fresh water in it since its a simple process to do.
The design of the Hydrology9 makes changing the water effortless. You just take off the magnetic lid, twist off the glass mouthpiece and poor the water out. To give the glass tube a clean you can unscrew the spacecraft grade aluminum housing and remove the tube for a good rinsing. Repeating the same steps in reverse and adding water instead of dumping the water out will give you a fresh new setup.
Check out the video below which will give you an good idea of how the Hydrology9 operates.
The Hydrology9 has made it into our top picks for the best portable vaporizers in the $250 and lower category. Overall the Hydrology9 is one of the most innovative portable vaporizers available to date. The build quality, vapor cleanliness, and customer service is all top tier. You can get one of these popular selling devices directly from Cloudious9's official website here.
