One word: VapeCase. Well, it’s actually two words in a sense, but when combined, they form the name of a company that makes carrying cases for vaporizers. Their soft-shell carry case for the Volcano is the best we’ve come across. It has plenty of storage for everything you’ll need, including the Volcano, and it’s strong enough to keep it well protected while you’re traveling.
The Volcano isn’t really all that travel friendly, but when you toss it in the bag that VapeCase makes for it, you’ll feel more than ready to bring it to a friends house for some awesome vape sessions – or at least, that’s how we feel once we get squared away inside the bag.
We slapped together a quick little review of it on our website, which you can see here if you want. Not much to say about it other than it does a good job of protecting the Volcano vaporizer during transport and it works with both the Classic and the Digital versions of the Volcano.
It’s reminiscent of a duffel bag of sorts, only it’s designed specifically for our favorite desktop vaporizer. And it’s not all that expensive so you might actually pick one up. But then again, how often do you really see yourself transporting your Volcano? Probably not often, that’d be our guess. But if you do move it around a lot, this might be just what you’ve looking for.
VapeCase also makes carrying cases for other vapes, just in case you were wondering. So if you happen to have a vape that you’re looking for a case for and don’t like what the manufacturer has to offer — if they even have anything to offer, that is — then you might want to take a look at what VapeCase has to offer because they make some really legit bags. That much is for sure.
This is a question that keeps coming up so we decided to put together a review of the Pax 3’s extract lid/insert, which is what it uses to transform itself from a dry blend vaporizer to a concentrate vaporizer. While you can read the review for yourself, we’ll tell you about our answer here. Just know that you can learn more about it by checking out our full-length review.
Before we get into all that, we’re going to tell you about the newest Pax vaporizer, which is number three in the procession. Pax 3 is, like the other Pax vaporizers, super compact and really easy to use. It has a lot more options than the original and it works much, much better than the original. The concentrate insert, which works with the Pax 2 and 3, replaces the normal oven cover. Once attached, you can drop a little bit of blend in it and it’ll vaporize it quickly and efficiently. The only real downsides to the attachment are as follows:
Doesn’t hold that much blend. It looks like it does, but if you put too much in it, you won’t like the results. Just use a little drop, nothing more. Something about the size of a pea should do the trick.
You really need to clean it often to keep it working properly. So make sure you stay on top of the cleaning because its performance goes down rapidly as it gets dirty.
Those are our two complaints and really the only issues with it. It doesn’t hold much and it needs to be cleaned regularly. Otherwise, it works great. But what it doesn’t do is compare to the best concentrate-only vaporizers out there. We personally much prefer some of the pen vapes out there to the Pax 3 when it comes to concentrates, but the option to do both (dry+concentrate) is really nice and one of the many reasons why we’re quite fond of this new version of the Pax.

This review for the Puffit that we recently published on our site was a long time coming. Like more than a few vapes we’ve reviewed on our site, this is one that we’ve had for years. In fact, we have two. We weren’t in any rush to tell you all about it though because it’s no longer being sold. There might be some strays floating around at vape shops but for the most part, you just won’t find it for sale anymore. We’re guessing the reason for this is due to the fact that it’s just not that great of a vaporizer. The concept, a vape that looks like an inhaler, is awesome, but its vapor quality just isn’t up to par. We’re hoping one day Discreet Vape come back with a revamped version that works better than all the others, but who knows if that’ll ever happen.
What we just told you was really what’s up with this vape but we’ll break it down further for you. The real problem with it is that the vapor it produces just isn’t all that strong. It’s light, hardly visible, and not all that potent. It’s one of those vapes that you’ll use and wonder why people are vaping – that is, if you haven’t tried a good vape yet. So if this is your first vape, you might think vaping is no more than a fad. But trust us, this is not the vape you want and its vapor production is nowhere near as good as some of the other portables that are out there. So if you’ve tried one and been turned off by it, don’t stop there, get yourself a real vape, a good vape. Perhaps something like the Arizer Solo 2, which is a very powerful vaporizer that isn’t as small and not nearly as sneaky, but works so much better you’ll wonder why you ever bothered with this one, the Puffit.
Puffits heat up in less than 60 seconds, are roughly the size of an actual inhaler, look just like an inhaler, are pretty easy to clean, and offer multiple temperature settings. They heat up pretty quick, but we suggest heating them up at least twice before actually putting it to use with your blends. This little trick will help you get some better vapor as it needs a little bit of time to really get the oven up to temperature and isn’t quite as ready as it would have you believe when it says it is. So heat it up a few times and then use it. That’s our advice.
The battery is charged via micro-USB. It doesn’t last all that long so you’ll want to charge it frequently.

That’s where you’re going to find everything we know about it, like what its temperature range is, what its warranty looks like, and all that. If you’re not all that impressed with our findings, which wouldn’t surprise us at all given that we’re not all that impressed with it, take a look at the other vapes we’ve reviewed because there are some real gems in there – really nice vapes that are well worth the money and absolutely better than the Puffit in just about every way imaginable.
Wondering how well the Plenty Vaporizer works? We’ll tell you.
We first got our hands on this vape years ago so you can rest assured that we’ve tested it thoroughly. What we’ve found is that it is one of the most powerful vaporizers there is. It’s like a lungful of vapor, hell, more than that. It’s like two lungs full of vapor. This thing produces so much vapor that the name is incredibly befitting of it. And thanks to its cooling coil, the weird metal tube that the vapor travels through before it exits the mouthpiece, it’s surprisingly smooth.
What makes the vapor so plentiful is its very large oven, which you can load with a lot of blend, and its high amount of surface area. This means that a lot of the blend can be vaporized at the same time, which results in a lot of vapor. To use other terminology, it produces massive “clouds” of vapor. This thing means serious business when it comes to vapor production. Never has it let us down in this regard. It’s so intense that it’s actually overpowering – if you want it to be, that is.
We’re not big fans of the temp controls and we don’t like the plastic mouthpiece, but other than that, this thing is sick (as in awesome). It mass produces vapor without a second thought and it’s on point every single time. Never do you get weak vapor production, always strong.
If this was a portable, we’d cry out of happiness because of how well it works and the fact that it fits in a pocket. But it’s not. It’s a handheld with a cord. Basically, it’s a desktop vaporizer. That’s its only real downside. But if you’re just after a home use vape, it’s one of the best options there is. And get this: it’s not even new. Yeah, that’s right. It’s been around for years and still it ranks near the top of the list of our favorite vaporizers. But seeing as it’s made by Storz & Bickel, that’s somewhat to be expected.
Plenty vaporizers aren’t feature rich, but they do have the ability to vape all types of blends. To find out more about how well it works, what its temperature range is, how fast it heats up, and all that other stuff that you’re probably interested in, take a look at our full length Plenty vaporizer review on VaporizerShark.com. That’s where you’re going to get all these little details along with our assessments. So if you want to know if this is the right vape for you, head on over to our site and read our review. You won’t regret it, especially if you’re looking for the most powerful handheld vaporizer on the planet.
This review summary of sorts is brought to you by Vaporizer Shark. We test, rate, and review vapes so you don’t have to.
We added a fresh new review to our site for the Linx Hypnos Zero, which is a vape that’s been around for a bit that we hadn’t gotten around to testing until more recently. After some pretty extensive testing, we’ve finally managed to put our thoughts down on paper (digital paper) in the form of our recently published review it. What’s it all about? We’ll tell you.
The Hypnos Zero is a portable pen vape that doesn’t work with dry blends, just concentrates. But you know what they say about being a jack of all trades. In this case, the Zero makes no attempt to do it all but it does do the one thing it sets out to do quite well and that’s vaporize extracts. It’s a little lacking in the battery life department as well as the capacity department (oven only holds so much), but this aside, it’s actually a great vape. You don’t have a lot of options to fiddle around with, which is a good thing in some sense as it makes it easy to use, but it might have been nice to have a little more control over the oven’s temperature. Still, with its 4 temperature settings, it manages to provide enough range for us to get some really nice vapor on par with what we like to see out of our pens. The heat up time is basically amazing, as is the case with most concentrate-only pen vaporizers that we’ve come across. It basically heats up in an instant so you’re not waiting around, you just load it up, hit the power button and start drawing. Simple.
One of the design features that we really like about it is its standard 510 threading which allows you to connect basically any vape accessory you want, assuming it’s 510 threaded. You can use its battery to power your other atomizers or you can use its atomizer with other batteries.
Given that it’s a pen, it’s obviously pretty compact. It measures just a bit under 11 centimeters long and weighs less than 50 grams. Lightweight and compact? Definitely.
There’s really only one aspect of it that’s annoying: the auto-shutoff timer. If the way it works doesn’t bother you, you’ll be all set with this one because just about every other aspect of it is on point. We like, that much is for sure.
When using it, we like to use the highest temp setting as it results in the best cloud production. For taste though, we like to user the lower temps because they do a better job of maintaining the flavor profile of the blend. And on the lowest setting, just as reference, the vapor is barely visible or not at all. The highest setting is pretty much the opposite – highly visible clouds of potent vapor.
The whole thing is powered by a 650 mAh battery, which is why it doesn’t last that long. Other vapes have 3000+ mAh batteries, which are obviously much more powerful and capable of providing power for that much longer.
Aesthetically, this is one of the most appealing pen vapes we’ve used. It looks great. Simple, but cool.
To learn more about its accessories, its vapor quality, and everything else, we suggest you continue reading about this vape on our site. Our in-depth review has a lot of information. A lot. But before we go, we just want to note: this vape is cheap. It’s not expensive and that’s one reason why you might want to take a look at it because it’s a serious contender for your pocket space as it’s inexpensive and works well. Mind you, it’s really only good if you have access to extracts. If you don’t have that, you don’t want this.
As always, this blog post, a quick review summary of the Linx Hypnos Zero vaporizer, is brought to you by VaporizerShark.com.
We haven’t had a chance to review this vape quite yet but we expect to soon. In the meantime, we’ve put together a little preview of the Ghost MV1 vaporizer on our site. It’s being touted by some as the best thing since sliced bread, but that’s questionable. We haven’t tried it yet so we can’t say for sure. However, if what’s been said is true, it’s a good vape and one that we’re going to have to take a close look at in 2018. Thus far, what we know about it, if the information we have is correct, is that it’s quick to heat up, supports all types of blend (dry+concentrate), and it has a user-replaceable battery. It also has multiple heat settings, but from what we gather, no precision controls that allow you to choose the exact temp you’d like to vape on.
Supposedly, it doesn’t char your blend, just vaporizes it nice and even. It also manage to prolong the flavor profile for an extended period of time, which, if true, is very nice to hear. We can’t wait to try it based on all that we’ve heard about it thus far.
It’s powered by two batteries, which take about two and a half hours to recharge. Apparently, when fully charged, it’s able to provide something like 100 or more hits.
The size though, this is an area that doesn’t seem all that impressive. Apparently, it’s about the size of the Crafty, which is to say that it’s not all that portable. Will it fit in a pocket? Maybe, but probably not comfortably if it does.
This post was brought to you by VaporizerShark.com and we’ll try to update it when we have more information on this vape. Until then, check out the preview on our site because we have more information about it there. If you’ve tried the MV1, drop a comment and let us know what you think!
Alright, so, for starters, we really aren’t big fans of the whole dab rig movement. Using a torch is just too much for us. It’s too much effort, it gets too hot, and we’re just not fans of how complicated and unnecessary it all is, especially when you can vape your concentrates instead. And that’s where the portable eRig come into play. Dr. Dabber, a vaporizer manufacturer, makes a really cool one that you might not have seen yet and it’s called the Boost. We reviewed the latest version of this portable eNail, the Boost Black Edition and that’s what we’re going to tell you about today.
The Dr. Dabber Boost Black Edition is a portable eRig that requires no torch to vaporize dabs. It’s not really all that portable, especially when you add one of Dr. Dabber’s awesome glass water filters to it, but it definitely does the trick and it’s a whole lot easier to carry around than your average rig and torch combo. So we gave it a try and what did we find? It’s better than we thought and a whole lot more pleasant to use than your average rig, or at least that’s how we feel about it.
How It Works
Basically, with this vape, all you’re doing is applying your dabs to one of its nails, either titanium, quartz, or ceramic. Your choice. It heats up to temperatures much higher than typical vaporizer, but that’s okay seeing as dabs are basically filtered down to what matters so you don’t have to worry about that excess matter to begin with. With that in mind, it heats up hundreds of degrees higher than your average portable dry blend vape. It actually runs all the way up to 610F, which is really hot by vaporizer standards. And to simplify everything, all you have to do is press one button. No torch necessary. But seeing as it gets pretty hot, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to find that it takes anywhere from about 30 to 45 seconds to reach optimal temperatures. That’s really not a long time and if you’ve ever used a traditional rig, this probably doesn’t like much time at all given how much time goes into getting the nail ready with the torch.
How Long It Lasts
When fully charged, the battery will provide anywhere from 20 to 30 sessions, which is a lot given that it doesn’t take much to get the job done when you’re vaping concentrates.
The cleaning is pretty low effort, which is nice. There aren’t really any temperature options, just two settings, which simplifies things but we’d still prefer to see more because we prefer to have more control over the heating element, but the two settings are definitely enough to get the job done. There are a lot of accessories available, but the ones to really take a look at are the glass water filters that Dr. Dabber makes. With them, you can replace the stock one which isn’t all that great and take it to the next level, bringing it up to par with what you’d expect from a high-end dab rig. The warranty is solid. The vapor quality is impressive. All things considered, it’s a really nice alternative to the rig and torch combo that too many of you are still using. Check out our full Dr. Dabber Boost review to learn more. You might be surprised by what you learn. It’s definitely worth a read if you’re looking for something easier to use than your old torch and rig combo.
