Iolite Vaporizer Review
The Iolite portable vaporizer is by Oglesby and Butler.
The way that the Iolite is powered makes it a unique vaporizer. The Iolite actually doesn’t plug in, it doesn’t have a charger and it also does not run on rechargeable batteries. The vaporizer is actually
powered by butane and the butane heating element, which features an ignite switch so that the heating chamber reaches the right temperature safely.
The operating time of the vaporizer with butane is about an hour and half, but will depend on how often you use it.
When you go to refill the unit with butane, you need to hold the Iolite the right side up and the butane upside down. The nozzle of the can will fit onto the fill valve. Once you pushy the can down and there is an overflow then the chamber is full. You will need to wait a few moments before you ignite the vaporizer so that the butane settles down.
Whilst you wait though, put your herbs inside the chamber.
In order to turn the Iolite on you need to switch the side button from 0 to 1, which will then start the flow of gas. After a few seconds you can press the igniter switch. You will see an orange glow on the side, which tells you it has been ignited.
It takes less than a minute for it to heat up. The unit will go on and off as it maintains the temperature. You will also hear a hissing sound as it does this, which can be slightly annoying. You may also find that you will smell the butane, but you won’t taste it.
The draws that you get from the Iolite have a good amount of vapor, but it is not that smooth and can still be a little hot.
The Iolite is a neat portable vaporizer that doesn’t need electricity, which makes it perfect for outdoor activities. The unit is also lightweight so it’s easy to carry. You will though need to keep a can of butane around so that you can keep refilling it.
A Quick Look at the Snoop Dogg G Pen Herbal
The first thing that you will notice about the Snoop Dogg G Pen Herbal is the packaging. The box is in a matte finish and swings open on the top where the vaporizer is sitting in a plastic housing. The packaging is a lot cooler than other vaporizer packaging’s.

- 1 rechargeable Snoop Dogg G Pen battery
- 1 Snoop Dogg G Pen herbal tank
- 1 G Pen USB charger
- 1 G wall adapter

The G Pen has a design of a blue map pattern that features Long Beach, California streets. The pen has a rubbery finish that feels expensive. After you have put the device together you can load the herbal tank. You will need to first grind the plant matter so that it vaporizes correctly. To turn on the vaporizer you will need to press the power button five times.
Press the button and hold and inhale through the mouthpiece. The draw is quite smooth.
The Snoop Dogg G Pen Herbal vaporizer is a well-built device that does what it says. It has a nice aesthetic and has some nice extras with it.

The O.Pen vaporizer uses disposable cartomizers which are pre-filled with CO2 oil that comes from their partner companies, Organa Labs and MedWest.

High-level Desktop Vaporizers
Here is a look at some high level desktop vaporizers
VapeXhale Cloud EVO
The VapeXhale Cloud EVO is an impressive unit that was made to be used with a water pipe and there are several options available when you buy this vaporizer. Generally it will come with a dry tube at no extra cost.
The vaporizer is easy to use. You plug it in and turn the temperature dial to the 12 o’clock position. You will then need to wait for about 15 minutes so that you get a better vapor. Once the time has passed, you need to load the material into the EZ Load bowl, pop the cap back on and insert it into the top of the unit. Attach the tube of choice and begin vaping.
If you usually vape through a water pipe then this is the unit for you. If you have never used a water pipe then you can stick to the dry tube and upgrade at a later stage.
The volcano vaporizer is the best and well known vaporizer made by Storz and Bickel. You can get the Volcano vaporizer in the classic and the digital.
The Volcano is easy to use. You need to press the orange switch on the front and wait two to three minutes until the unit reaches the temperature. The orange light on the unit will turn off when the temperature is reached.
Once the temperature is reached, place the herb chamber on top of the unit and then snap either the solid valve or the easy valve on top and activate the fan. The bags will fill in about 30 seconds, once the bag is full then you turn off the fan and begin to draw. You will be able to get around m5 draws from each bag.
The easy valve kit comes with five easy valve bags and each bag will last for about two months. The solid valve set allows you to replace the bags with any food safe sized bags you want.
The Volcano is for those that want a great and efficient unit that provides the best tasting vaporizer on the market.
The Herbalizer is a new desktop model but is quickly gaining a great reputation. The Herbalizer uses a hydrogen bulb instead of a normal heating element which means that it heats up in just a few seconds.
The Herbalizer is also the first multi-use vape that performs perfectly in each category. The unit can use whips, balloons and direct draw as well as an aromatherapy mode.
In order to turn the vaporizer on you need to open the unit where it will split into two separate internal parts. One part is for aromatherapy and the other is for normal vaporization.
You will need to select which mode you want to use.
With the vaportherapy mode there are two setting you will use. You will either attach a whip or use the fan to fill a balloon.
There is a third mode which is the freestyle mode where you hook up the device like you are going to fill a balloon, but you will not attach a balloon and just turn the fan on. This allows you to fill a room with vapor.
You need to load the chamber for either mode, select vaportherapy, choose whip or bag and then set your temperature. Attach the whip or balloon and you are ready to vape.
The vapor quality is pure and the vaporizer is of top quality.
Mid-level Desktop Vaporizers 2015
Here are options for mid-level desktop vaporizers for 2015.
The Silver Surfer by 7* Floor is a mid-level vaporizer that is a whip operated vape, which is customizable and comes with a three year warranty on the electrical components.
The vaporizer is easy to use. You will need to plug the unit in and turn the knob all the way up for about two minutes in order to get the heater going. The ceramic heater will give off an orange glow and you should turn it down to the 12 o’clock position for the ideal temperature range. Insert the wand and begin to draw.
If you prefer to draw quickly you will probably prefer a higher heat setting and a lower setting is best for slow draws.
The wand is made from glass and the whip is food grade vinyl. You will get a very good flavor with this and with the ceramic heater. You can choose the standard glass connection for your whip which you will need to hold up to the heating cover, the ground glass can attach to the unit and stay in so that you do not need to hold it and the spherical ground glass is similar to the regular ground glass.
The downside to this vaporizer is that you will either need to hold the wand to the heater or you will have to stir it 3 to 4 times during one session. Also there is no exact temperature numbers but the dial works well and it is easy to adjust the temperature.
7th Floor is releasing the Super Surfer soon which will be an updated version of the Silver Surfer.
The E-Nano is simple, sleek and is also made from wood. The E-Nano falls into the ‘log vapes’ category because it looks like a log and because inside the wood exterior is a high powered heater that vapes small amounts of dry herbs with efficiency.
You just need to turn this vaporizer on by plugging it in and setting the adjustable voltage on the power cord; load and insert the stem into the top and you are ready.
If you are looking for efficiency then this is the vape for you.
The Plenty Vaporizer is by Storz and Bickel and is one of the best vaporizers on the market.
The Plenty Vaporizer has a large chamber and has the ability to be handheld. It is easy to load and you will need to unscrew the coil and the coil base from the unit, and then unscrew the base to open the herb chamber. Once you have loaded the herbs you need to screw the base back onto the coil, reattach it to the unit and begin to vape.
There are seven heat settings which you will need to experiment with. It’s a good idea to start at 4 and move up.
This vaporizer is not easy on the eye and has a big spring attached. The spring though is the cooling coil which cools the vapor down a lot before it gets to your mouth. You will then be able to handle more vapor as it won’t irritate your throat as much as a hotter vapor.
The handle makes it easy to hold and to pass around in groups.
Entry Level Desktop Vaporizers for 2015
If you are looking for an entry level desktop vaporizer then here are two options that are worth a look. They both have pros and cons to them and your decision will be based on your personal needs.
Entry Level Desktop Vaporizers
The Extreme Q 4.0 by Arizer is a multipurpose vaporizer that is able to do both whips and bags. The Extreme Q has a unique feature in that it uses a remote instead of switches, which gives it a more hands free experience.
The device is pretty simple to use as you just turn the vaporizer on with the remote and choose your temperature setting. The LCD display will show that you have reached your desired temperature in 20 seconds, but for better results you should leave it for a minute after.
Once the temperature is reached, you can place your material in a glass cyclone bowl and place that into the top of the unit. Then attach the glass elbow into the whip and then place that into the cyclone bowl and you’re ready.
If you want to use the unit with a balloon then you use the tube and place that on top of the bowl and then attach the balloon to the tube. Set the fan to high and wait for the balloon to fill.
The herbalAire H2.2 by herbalAire is a small unit that has got power. You will not have to grind your material for this vaporizer which is a pro for this vape.
You will find that there are two different versions of the herbalAire. One of the units has a dial and the other features an LCD display. The dial unit is called the herbalAire H2.2 and the LCD display option is called the herbalAire Elite.
You can use both of these units with either a bag, a whip or you can choose to take draws directly from the unit. Also this unit can be directly attached to a water pipe right out of the box, whereas units need a separate attachment.
The bags of this unit need to be filled by using an external pump to it. You do get this pump with the herbalAire unit though.
The whip and the direct draw work well, but the temperatures do generally run on the hot side so it’s advisable to start with 350⁰F.
The unit is easy to use as you simply turn the dial to the temperature, load the crucible and pop in the mouthpiece. Then you just need to put in the whip or the straw for the bags and you’re ready.
One leader in the vaporizing world is Storz and Bickel. They show an attention to detail and quality and have an excellent reputation according to vaperight.com and now they have their first portable vaporizer, the Crafty Vaporizer.
The Crafty has quite simplistic design and features only one button that turns the vaporizer on. Once the vaporizer is on it will heat up to 180 Celsius. When the power button is double pressed the temperature is boosted to 195 Celsius.
These are the default settings, but they can be changed. There is a Crafty App for Android and IOS devices. On the app you can change the temperatures and see the units charge level and adjust other settings.
The temperature can then be set between 40 Celsius and 210 Celsius. You can set the basic temperature and the booster temperature.
The vapour quality from the Crafty is outstanding even though the unit uses a lot of plastic. The mouthpiece is made from plastic, but you won’t get a plastic flavour in the vapour. The vapour itself is smooth, cool and satisfying.
The mesh screens filter out particles from your plant matter which ensures that every draw is pure and flavourful.
The vaporizer uses a rechargeable lithium ion battery which once charged via a USB or wall charger will last for about 1.5 hours of continuous use. There is also an auto shut off which will help to extend the battery life. The auto shut off activates when the button is not pressed within 60 seconds. The battery itself though has to be replaced by Storz and Bickel
The Crafty is small so it can easily slide into your pocket. The mouthpiece swivels out of the way so it’s not a problem in transportation.
