Best with Dry Herb & Concentrates $260
The Vaporfection miVape is the latest addition to the range of portable and pocket-friendly vaporizers available on the market that works well with both dry substance and concentrates. One of the unique features of this model is that the material used for constructing the air path is glass. So how well does it work out? We tested this product and have written an in-depth review of our experience.
Vaporfection put their brand’s name on the map when they launched the viVape, their desktop item. They have now once again launched a fantastic product—the long-awaited, pocket-friendly miVape vaporizer. It works with both dry herbs and concentrates: the substance is heated through convection to the point where it vaporizes, but the heating isn’t intense enough to burn or combust the substance.
The heating chamber is made up of patented Quartz Crystal that superheats air while making sure that the substance in the chamber does not come directly in contact with the heat. The results will be an amazing flavor along with a super sweet scent.
Travel and Pocket Friendliness
The finest medical grade materials were used for the composition of the Vaporfection miVape. In terms of size and portability, this model has really nailed it. Many vaporizers boast portability but their design has some limitations. The miVape has the exterior of a smartphone, so it fits into hands and pockets with ease. This makes carrying the product wherever you want easier. And we know this question must have crossed your mind so no, the glass pipe will not break or get damaged as it folds inside the vaporizer once you are done using it.
Heating Temperatures And Controls
The digital temperature control system on the miVape allows adjustment of temperature so the vaporizer operates at any heating level below 430°F. You don’t ever need to worry about your substance combusting or having a slightly burnt and bitter flavor because the heating chamber never comes directly into contact with the heat. Setting the vaporizer to the required temperature isn’t complex either. Once the vaporizer is powered on, the temperature will automatically set to 350°F. You can then adjust the temperature using the plus and minus buttons. The temperature you set will reach and in approximately sixty seconds and then you may begin your vaping session.
The battery life and temperature setting will be displayed for your viewing on the LED digital display. So many times, vapers tend to leave their vaporizer on for long durations. For such situations, there is an automatic shutdown feature that can be kept between 4-10 minutes.
Moving on to the actual application, here are some points to keep in mind:
- Long extended draws is the key to achieving large clouds of vapor. Try to keep the draw going for 10 seconds.
- Shorter draws will also give flavor, but it will not be up to its true potential. On average, 0.05 grams of herbs will give three draws, so we were glad that our herbs were utilized
- Trying to get more than three is tricky and even the best of us needed a few tries to discover the right technique.
In order to claim the title as the ‘best portable vaporizer,’ it is important that the battery is durable. The miVape comes with a lithium-ion polarized battery which is rechargeable and can run for 2 hours continuously on a single full charge. You can charge with the micro USB charging cord provided.
A messy vaporizer that is hard to clean is every vaper’s worst enemy. But you can let out a sigh of relief as the miVape is surprisingly easy to clean and maintain. The glass pipe cleans hassle free and stays clean as a whistle. The gunk will accumulate if you don’t care for the product, of course.
Nobody likes to clean their vaporizers after every session which is why having hassle free cleaning is always a plus point. You may think that cleaning out a glass pipe must be terribly difficult but it is surprisingly okay. Just don’t allow any build up and it will be clean as a whistle. Use alcohol and water to clean the vapor path and the brush to clean the product.
For the price of one vaporizer, you will get a bundle of accessories:
- A mouthpiece
- A pair of heating chambers made out of quartz glass
- A pair of silicone cups
- 3 replacement screens
- A pair of silicone lids
- A cleaning brush
- A tool for stirring
- 10 wax cloths
- A wall charger with a micro USB charging cord
- A detailed instruction manual.
Vapers who specifically like convection heating and a smooth flavorful vapor will enjoy using the Vaporfection miVape. It definitely falls in the top ten portable vaporizers list but we must admit, other vaporizers like the Crafty and the Puma are much better in terms of build quality. But be assured that you will be getting exceptional performance along with outstanding vapor flavor. At $260, the price is, unfortunately, a deal breaker. There really is no justification for it but we are hoping to see a price drop in the coming months.
The miVape is available for purchase online.
