Vapir ONE 5.0 Vaporizer

This article sums up the Pros and Cons of the Vapir ONE v5.0 Vaporizer. one of the most affordable vaporizers on the market. It also goes into detail about the different components of the system, cleaning, as well as some useful tips and tricks. VapeNow.com hope you find it helpful and informative.

Pros:

  • Small and affordable.
  • Can be used as both a direct inhale and a balloon-style system.
  • Three fan speeds and a digital display.
  • Balloons come with caps to hold the vapor in the bags.
  • Good introductory vaporizer.

Cons:

  • Vapor leakage causes inefficiency.
  • Only produces vapor when the loud fan is on.
  • Needs a cool down period.
  • Doesn’t come with a stand;needs to be set down on its side.

THE BOTTOM LINE: The Vapir ONE 5.0 vaporizer is one of the most affordable units on the market right now. It has a bag and a whip system and produces bagged vapor as well as any other model on the market. At a price point of $149.99, it is the least expensive whip/bag delivery system available. It comes with plenty of accessories and is durably constructed.

The unit’s versatility, price point and multiple accessories are offset by some of its design elements. The unit must be used with the fan on, and it is one of the louder fans of any vaporizer. This also means that as a direct draw system, it can only be used in whip assist mode; you will not be able to leave the unit on between sessions because it does not have an idle mode. We experienced vapor leakage at the connection point for the tubing as well as the herb disc chamber. The unit does not stand upright and needs to be laid on its side, which may or may not have an effect on efficiency.

All in all, the Vapir ONE 5.0 is an effective and well priced introductory vaporizer. It gets the job done with a choice of delivery systems. Most people who purchase this unit as their first vaporizer and continue to vaporize, purchase better models later on.

Components/Parts:

1. Hot Air Generator: Vapir ONE v5.0 Vaporizer

The Vapir ONE v5.0 hot air generator can be used either as an assisted direct inhale whip-style vaporizer or as a balloon or bag style vaporizer. The digital temperature display lets you know when the unit has reached the desired temperature. The unit warms up in a few minutes, but we found it to work better after ten minutes of warm up time (although many vaporizers advertise warming up within a few minutes, the vast majority of them perform better with ample time to warm up the filling chamber, not just the heating element). The bag system is a little more efficient than the whip system and is much easier to use for beginners. The whip system is capable of delivering good vapor, but only with the fan on.

Dimensions: The Hot Air generator is 8.0" tall, 6” wide and 2.5” thick.

2. Herb Discs (2): Vapir ONE 5.0 Vaporizer Discs

The Herb Disc is a metal container with a screen on each side that pulls apart. Herbs are put inside the disc and then the disc is put into a sliding holder that goes into the heating chamber. Be careful, the discs get hot!

Dimensions: The disc is about 3/8" thick and approximately 3/4" in diameter.

3. Whip System (2 whips): Vapir ONE 5.0 Vaporizer Whips and Bags

The Whip System is simply a 14.5” long piece of food/medical grade tubing that slides into a hole at the end of the unit. To use the Vapir ONE 5.0 as a direct-inhale-style vaporizer, simply inhale through the tubing with long, slow, deep breaths once the unit has reached the desired temperature and sufficiently warmed up. Keep your draw speed consistent with the fan speed being used.

4. Balloon/Bag:

The Vapir ONE 5.0 comes with five durable bags. The bags are easy to use, provide consistent vapor, and are very well constructed. The bags come with a cap to keep the vapor in when set down. You can fill one bag and begin to consume it while the unit fills another one.

Quickstart (Direct Inhale):

  1. Plug in the Vapir ONE 5.0.
  2. Set your desired temperature (between 170C and 190C for the first time) and wait for the digital display to reach it. This usually takes a couple minutes. *Note – we recommend giving your unit a total of five to ten minutes to warm up before moving to the next step.
  3. Take the sliding disc tray out of the hot air generator.
  4. Press the button with the flame/fire icon to the side of the temperature display to activate the heating element.
  5. Fill the herb disc and put it in the tray, then slide the tray into the hot air generator.
  6. Attach the tubing to the hot air generator once the desired temperature is reached.
  7. Set to desired fan speed and inhale from the tubing. Sometimes slower fan speeds result in better vapor.
  8. When the filling is spent and your are done, push the flame/fire button to turn the green light off and let the unit cool down with the fan on for about five minutes. Then turn the unit off and put away.

Quickstart (Balloon-Style):

  1. Plug in the Vapir ONE 5.0.
  2. Set your desired temperature (between 170C and 190C for the first time) and wait for the digital display to reach it. This usually takes a couple minutes. *Note – we recommend giving your unit a total of five to ten minutes to warm up before moving to the next step.
  3. Take the sliding disc tray out of the hot air generator.
  4. Press the button with the flame/fire icon to the side of the temperature display to activate the heating element.
  5. Fill the herb disc and put it in the tray, then slide the tray into the hot air generator.
  6. Attach the tubing to the hot air generator once the desired temperature is reached. Then attach the bag to the tubing.
  7. Set to desired fan speed and wait for the bag to fill up. Sometimes slower fan speeds result in better vapor. Depending on the amount of herbs put in the chamber, you can get between two and five bags of quality vapor from each disc.
  8. When the filling is spent and your are done, push the flame/fire button to turn the green light off and let the unit cool down with the fan on for about five minutes. Then turn the unit off and put away.

Cleaning:

The Vapir ONE 5.0 has a few parts that make up the whip and bag systems. These parts can be cleaned using isopropyl alcohol, but are best replaced when dirty. The Hot Air Generator does not need to be cleaned. The tubing and bags will, over time, collect buildup. This is normal for any vaporizer using a tube path for the vapor.

Other Tips:

  • This unit is very versatile, so play around with the settings to see how you like to vaporize best. With the three fan speeds, digital temperature selector, the whip and bag systems, the possibilities are many!
  • Tie a cotton swab to a string and pull it through the tubing to clean it.

That's all for the Vapir ONE 5.0. Next up will be the VM3. Thanks for reading.
