Build Quality of the Utillian 651 Vaporizer
Housed with an anodized aluminum shell the Utillian 651 is a durable device. The glass mouthpiece is protected by a flask style protection lid. This device does not have very many parts which means there is not much that can go wrong with it. The Utillian 651 is in the vaporizers under $150 category and outperforms most mid priced range devices on the market. The oven uses a ceramic heating chamber to heat your herbs. Overall the build quality of the Utillian 651 is above industry average.
You should never purchase a vaporizer that does not come with a warranty. A warranty means that the company stands behind the quality of their devices. Utillian offers a 1 year hassle free warranty.
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.
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
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
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.
