Vapir Rise offers an alternative to the Volcano, providing much of the same functionality with a few twists of its own. How does it measure up against the king of desktop vaporizers? Read our review to find out what we thought.
The Vapir Rise looks much like a modern dehumidifier. It features a rounded, low-rise base and a long cylindrical neck. And it comes with plenty of attachments to give you a variety of vaping options.
The entire product looks very sleek and sophisticated. Nothing about it seems cheap.
The base is fitted with a number of controls- for temperature, fan speed, and power buttons for the fan and the unit. It gives you plenty of control over what you are doing, which if you are investing as much as the suggested retail price, then you will want a vaporizer that can do a lot and that can create the kind of vaping experience that fits you.
As mentioned above, there are a lot of parts that come with this unit. You can vape with balloons or whips, and unlike the Volcano, all the parts you need to do both are already included.
You’ll start by pressing the power button on the base of the unit. This starts it up and prepares it for use. Then you can adjust your heat settings with the control arrows on the front of the device. Once your temperature is set, you press the heat button to start the unit heating up to the point you set.
You can also adjust the power of the fans with another set of arrow controls on the base. This will help you speed up or delay the vaping process. If you want to let your Rise heat up slowly and fill a bag while you are doing something else, a low fan setting will work. If you are ready to just dive in and start vaping, you will want to turn your fan up a bit.
Lower fan speeds also provide a denser vapor, while higher ones break up the vapor a bit and offer you something lighter.
We honestly didn’t expect a great performance from a desktop vaporizer that sells for $250. So we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the product and how well it works.
It only takes about a minute to heat up all the way. Compare that to the Volcano’s 3-5 minutes and you have a much faster machine. But the Rise only heats to 400°F. And while that is good for your herbs if you grind them up fairly fine, it just won’t cut it for most oils. The unit is advertised as working with oils, but they must mean essential oils, as hash oils need a higher heat than what this provides.
The whips are made of plastic, which can feel inferior to glass whips if that is what you are used to. We liked that these whips will probably last longer and that there was little fear of them shattering, but they don’t provide the same quality of vapor that a glass whip would.
One thing that really bugged us about the Vapir Rise at first was how cumbersome and complex the whole setup process can be. There are a lot of steps involved in filling up a balloon. And while we eventually grew comfortable with it and accepted how much work it all was, it presents quite a learning curve.
QSC Rating: 91/100 by Quit Smoking Community
While we have a few minor issues with its performance and operation, these are all easily offset by the amount of value it offers. If you are new to vaping and you don’t want to make the major investment required for a Volcano or similar product, then this is the best desktop vape you can get for a comparatively lower price.
