Iolite Original Vaporizer Reviewed
The Iolite Original is a high quality portable vaporizer that is affordable and discreet. At first glance, it looks a lot like a handheld radio or a walkie talkie, so no one will really guess it’s a vaporizer unless they see your vapor clouds. This model is unique from other portable options because it is powered by butane. That means no batteries are no needed and you don’t have to worry about finding access to an electrical outlet. You can buy butane at any convenience store so it’s always simple to power up when you need a vape break.
I had never used a butane powered vaporizer before trying the Iolite Original, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was really surprised by how easy it was to use! The only thing I didn’t like was the hissing sound from the butane when it was on, but unless you are in a super quiet room, it won’t be bothersome. I found that the Iolite created really enjoyable vapor and I loved the way the taste really shined through when I used dry herbs. I really noticed a lot of variations in flavor that I had never really tasted before when using other portable vaporizers for the same herbs.
Don’t let the butane power hold you back from trying the Iolite because it was really easy to assemble and use. I actually would prefer this unit for camping or hiking trips. Each time I filled it with butane, it would give me about six vaping sessions with each one lasting about 15 minutes. Overall, you get about ninety minutes of vape time each time you fill it. Adding the butane is easy! Just hold the butane can upside down and attach it to the nozzle on the fill valve. Press it down and the butane will fill the chamber. Just watch carefully so you can disconnect it when the tank is full. It will only take a few seconds so be ready! After you add the butane, let it settle a few minutes while you add your herbs to the chamber. Then you ready to vape.
To activate it, just flip the switch on the side to give it some gas and then press down the igniter switch. You might have to try the switch a couple times to get it to ignite and then it will be heated up in less than a minute. While you are vaping, you will hear it making some hissing sounds off and on. This is just the heater activating periodically to keep things at a steady temperature.
All things considered, I thought the Iolite Original was a good vaporizer. While I wouldn’t choose to use butane power for daily vaping, it is really perfect for traveling and especially camping. The only potential problem is if you are overly sensitive to the smell of gas. For me, I didn’t mind it and it was really mild, but some people might find that to be turn off. While this vaporizer won’t appeal to everyone, it is still a really good model that deserves some credit. I think it is a great addition to my personal collection and if you want something really unique, I would recommend that you add the Iolite Original to your vaping stash as well.
