We have all become so accustomed to seeing people using smaller portable vaporizers that we forget that they have essentially evolved from the bigger desktop units that have been around for years. You might think it safe to assume that desktop vaporizers have gone the way of the dinosaur, but the reality is that they are still very much in high demand. It’s not everyone who wants to take their dry herbs with them when they go, and there are still many people who like to get a quality vaping session in the comfort of their own home, oftentimes with friends. If we are going to start talking about quality with a desktop vaporizer, then we really need to talk about the Vapeolution 3. Let’s give it a closer look.
Getting to know the Vapeolution 3
Portability – As mentioned at the start, desktop vaporizers are not designed to be portable in any way, shape, or form. The Vapeolution 3 is a little smaller than some other desktop units out there, but it’s still not something that you would ever carry around with you.
Ease of Use – This device really is the definition of plug and play. The vaporizer, once plugged in, is easy to control, and the draw resistance is not as bad as you think it might be for a unit of this size.
Power Source – There is no need to mess around with batteries and USB cables with the Vapeolution 3, as it comes with a standard AC wall charger. Take it out, plug it into any wall socket, and you are ready to go.
Prep Time – Great news for those of you who find grinding your herb to be a chore. You can load this thing up as is, without grinding, and given how fast the unit heats up to your desired temperature, you will be vaping in no time.
Temperature Settings – Your temperature settings are easy to control up and down, and easy to read on the digital display. You can go all the way up to about 420 degrees Fahrenheit with this one.
Vapor Quality – The vapor path is 100% glass, which helps make the vapor quality top notch. The glass does take a few seconds to heat up, so give it a moment before drawing. For best results, remove the glass tube after every hit, as this will ensure that the glass does not keep getting heat, which could result in your dry herb becoming a little less flavorful.
Pricing – Price for the Vapeolution 3 comes in at around $300, which is a fair price for a unit of this quality.
Guarantee – The device comes with a 6-month warranty that covers everything. If you need any repairs done after that time, expect to shell out some service fees.
