Introduced to the Vaporizer market in early 2012, the ThermoVape is a new cordless portable Vaporizer manufactured by Thermo Essence Technologies in the United States that uses convection based technology and has a brisk heat up time of only 10-20 seconds.
At only 5 inches in length, in addition to weighing in at 3.5 ounces, the ThermoVape is both discreet and light weight; in fact, it resembles the shape of a Sharpie.
The ThermoVape’s proprietary patented heating core system employs an untainted heating coil which is insulated by a high grade ceramic cover. This insightful technology provides a clean heat source that ranges from 390-400 Degrees Fahrenheit and does not alter the flavor of the Vapor.
As far as durability, the outer shell is basically crafted out of the same material that NASA uses in their Space Shuttles. I was a little leery about this claim so I watched the Destructive tests conducted by the manufacturer on YouTube which left me impressed. I saw the ThermoVape operate properly after being dropped on concrete, thrown in fire, dipped under water, and even being run over by a car!
Two rechargeable lithium iron phosphate batteries power the ThermoVape, providing 30 Watts of power and up to 20 minutes of continuous use. The entire kit includes 3 sets of batteries, equivalent to 60 minutes of battery life.
ThermoVape Portable Vaporizer Ease of Use
The testing process verified that the ThermoVape is built with a user friendly design. I was able to Vaporize right out of the box in a matter of seconds with a simple three step process.
First, I grinded up my blend with a semi-fine consistency.
Next, I unscrewed the Top Cover in a counter clockwise motion and placed my blend inside the Vapor Bowl. With the blend in place, I screwed the Top Cap back on with a clockwise motion.
I activated the Heat by sliding my thumb upwards on the ThermoVape Switch for a period of 5-10 Seconds to begin the Vaporization process with slow breaths. I was able to get 6-8 nice Vapor Draws per fill.
Due to the fail-safe design feature, I remembered to hold the switch in the ON position while drawing from the unit to keep a consistent heat level.
As far as the batteries, the first set inside the unit came fully charged and I was able to achieve around 50 total Vapor draws before the battery life was exhausted. The other two sets of batteries were charged within 30 minutes.
ThermoVape Portable Vaporizer Time to Heat Up
As you can see it here that without a good quality battery and long running coil, the vaporizer is not worth anything. Thus, before paying for one it is advised to take a glance at the reviews done by the users who have already used the vaporizer. The ThermoVape Portable Vaporizer has an average heat up time of only 10-20 seconds, making the Vaporization process nearly instantaneous. I followed the instructions and let the unit heat up for 10 seconds before drawing from the ThermoVape. After an additional 10 seconds, I began to feel the Vapor being produced while taking slow, steady breaths.
A unique Fail Safe Power Switch ensures that the ThermoVape will not be activated in your pocket or purse. The heating element is only activated when sliding the ignition switch upwards.
ThermoVape Portable Vaporizer Efficiency/Effectiveness
The ThermoVape consistently produced an excellent vapor throughout the testing phase. I started off by taking deep slow breaths which resulted in a thick visible vapor. Next, I changed my breathing pattern by taking rapid breaths that resulted in a semi-transparent vapor which provided more flavor.
I feel that this unit is effective with both application methods, personally, I prefer a dense Vapor so a slow breathing pattern is more my cup of tea.
ThermoVape Portable Vaporizer Warranty
The ThermoVape outer components are backed by a Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects. Both the heater core and rechargeable batteries are equipped with a 3-month Manufacturer’s Warranty. Also, the manufacturer states that the batteries and heater core are a consumable and need to be replaced eventually.
ThermoVape Portable Vaporizer Overall Satisfaction
I would highly recommend the ThermoVape to both novice and expert patrons that are searching for a versatile convection based portable Vaporizer to fit their lifestyle. The quick heat up time, quality heating element, durable outer shell, and user friendly design are key features that make the ThermoVape worth the $250 Price Tag.
