Zephyr Vaporizers Releases Bag Changing Video

We’ve had a few inquires from people trying to change bags on their Zephyr Ion Vaporizers.  Changing the bag is a fairly straightforward process, but can be tough to learn for the first time.  It’s tough to explain over the phone too, so all you Zephyr Ion owners out there will be happy to know that Zephyr has released a video detailing how to change the bag on your vaporizer.  Thanks guys!

Magic Flight Launch Box Staff Review Posted

The Magic Flight Launch Box is the most recent portable vaporizer to hit the market.  With the ability to power itself from a AA battery it is a very easy and convenient herbal vaporizer to use.  When you buy the Magic Flight Launch Box Vaporizer you also get some rechargeable AA batteries and a battery charger so you don’t have to worry about buying tons of batteries or a charger.

The iolite Portable Vaporizer

Introduction:
It’s hard not to like the iolite Handheld Vaporizer. It’s healthy, it’s cordless – you can literally take it anywhere – and it delivers.

The iolite Vaporizer is the latest portable vaporizer model to be introduced to the market. It is manufactured in Ireland by Oglesby and Butler Ltd. Unlike other portable models it requires no batteries or open flames; it is a new kind of vaporizer that uses butane to heat instead of electricity and is therefore quite portable. The iolite is a true pocket size vaporizer and its patented technology generates optimum vaporization temperatures within 45 seconds (although we have found that waiting a little longer – 2-3 minutes – improves vapor quality).

Construction :
The iolite portable vaporizer fits in the palm of our hand and is about the size of a mobile phone or a cigarette pack. It weighs about 81 grams or 2.8 oz.

The material used is of food and medical grade plastics which are approved by FDA, and also adhere ISO: 9001-2001 strict quality guidelines. More from the manufacturer, Oglesby and Butler Limited:

The outside plastic is not your everyday plastic; it is ‘Ultem 1000’ which is FDA and United States Pharmacoepia Class VI compliant. Ultem 1000 is a thermoplastic polyetherimide high heat polymer designed by General Electric. It is also commonly machined into parts for reusable medical devices, electrical/electronic insulators and a variety of structural components requiring high strength and rigidity at elevated temperatures.
The reason we picked this plastic was because it has low thermal conductivity. If we used metal or other far cheaper plastics like glass filled nylon we could not make it so small without burning your hand off.

The internal plastics are made from DuPont Automotive Zenite liquid crystal polymer, which also has a very low thermal conductivity and is FDA approval for use in repeated food-contact applications. Zenite liquid crystal polymer is also used in auto ignition fuel handling, ovenware and the aerospace industry and for fuel or gas barrier structures.

The attention paid by the manufacturer to using quality plastic is very nice to see as this can be a problematic area for some vaporizer models.

Technology:
The iolite vaporizer uses a patented flameless gas catalytic heater to power the unit and a thermostatic controlled bi-metal regulator to stabilize temperature. It is ignited easily and reaches vaporizing temperature in 45 seconds to 60 seconds. The regulator is very similar to the one used by S&B; in the Volcano Classic, so it’s definitely precise. The iolite is able to maintain 374°F or 190°C +/- 5°F.

Comparisons:
The iolite Vaporizer is new competition for portable battery-powered vaporizers like the Volatizer VM3 and the O2 Oxygen Mini Handheld. The iolite butane heating system has two notable advantages: 1) it can outlast the VM3 and Oxygen batteries and 2) The butane heater is also not subject to shorter charge times down the line as are the batteries. At $249, the iolite is $200 cheaper than the VM3, and about twice as expensive as the Oxygen Mini with the optional battery. However, in our opinion the vapor quality of the iolite is superior to both of the other models.

For those who are fans of lighter-powered vaporizers like the VaporGenie, the Phyto-Lab, or the Vapman, the iolite is an interesting alternative. It is significantly more expensive, but you never have to worry about combustion because the iolite eliminates the imprecision of lighter-powered vapes.

We hope the info and comparisons are helpful, please contact us with any questions or comments. -VN

More Staff Vaporizer Reviews Added!

We wanted to let everyone know that we have been expanding our Staff Review Section at VapeNow.com as part of our continued effort to provide objective information about all types of vaporizers. We have come up on a new system to ensure that new vape reviews are added on a weekly basis weekly. Each of our Staff Reviews gives a complete description of a specific vaporizer model, including the materials used, the cons and pros, how to use the vape , and some useful tips on handling the Vape.

A few Staff Reviews that we have recently added (reviews include pictures):

  1. The Extreme Vaporizer by Arizer — The Extreme Vaporizer is one of the most versatile dual use (balloon and direct-inhale) vaporizers on the market.
  2. The iolite Vaporizer by Oglesby & Butler Ltd — The iolite is a revolutionary portable vaporizer that uses a butane heater instead of batteries or flames.
  3. The Vapor Brothers Original Vaporizer by Vapor Brothers – The Vapor Brothers Original Vaporizer is the standard for whip-based/direct-inhale units.
  4. The Purple Days Vaporizer by Purple Days –The Purple Days Vaporizer uses unique vapor tubes and patented heating technology to provide rich vapor.
  5. The V-Tower Vaporizer by Arizer – The V-Tower Vaporizer is the same as the Extreme, but without balloons. So if you just like direct inhale, this unit gives you more bang for your buck.

We’re aware how hard it can be to find objective information about vaporizers online – indeed a lot of what is out there is propaganda put out by various manufacturers (we won’t name names, but they know who they are) — and we hope the information in these reviews is helpful. We do our best to be objective when testing at VapeNow. Thanks,
–The VapeNow Staff
