Recently, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a Vapir N02 portable vaporizer in order to review here on Vaporblog! I’ve reviewed the newly released Vapir Rise in a previous article, so I was excited to try a portable offering from Vapir. The N02 has been on the market for quite a long time (since 2011) and boasts a digital temperature gauge as well as a long lasting battery.
The N02 came nicely packaged with everything you need to get started vaporizing, and this included the following:
- Vapir N02 Vaporizer
- Herb Screens
- Lithium battery
- Cleaning tools
- Instruction manual
After charging the unit, I filled up the herb chamber (which was tall and narrow), placed the top and mouthpiece on, and turned on the unit. Like the DaVinci Ascent, the N02 has a digital temperature gauge (no other portable vapes have one), and I found this to be a handy feature as it allows you to achieve different vaporization effects by temperature. To heat your bud, the N02 uses a stainless steel encased pure brass heating element, and it took a couple minutes to reach my desired temperature of 200C. Once the n02 was ready I started taking puffs. The vapor production was good, and I was able to get quite a few quality tasting hits before finishing the bowl. I did find it tough to clean out the bowl though, so make sure you have a tool handy.
The N02 comes with a user-replaceble 1100mAH battery, and you can use the unit while its charging which is a plus. On a full charge, I was able to get about four full bowls from the unit, and this was enough to last me an entire day. With its set it and forget it design, I found that the N02 is pretty fun to use at parties as it can be passed around easily and takes no effort to operate! The unit also has a twenty minute cutoff in case you forget to power it off. Cleaning the N02 is fairly easy, and I’ll be writing a guide on it in the near future!
Despite its solid vapor production and digital temperature gauge, the major downside with the N02 is its portability (or better yet, lack of it). The N02 is much larger than other portable vaporizers (check out my other portable reviews here for more discreet vapes), and it gets even larger (and more noticeable) with the stem and mouthpiece attached for use. I was unable to fit the N02 in any of my pockets, so I usually carried it around in a knapsack while on the go. I also wouldn’t recommend using concentrates or oils in the N02, as it can be difficult to clean the oils from the herb chamber.
Overall, I enjoyed the vapor quality and digital temperature gauge on the N02, and at only $149, the N02 gives you a great bang for your buck. I suggest picking up the N02 if you’re looking for a low-cost introduction to vaping, yet still want to have a quality experience and a digital temp gauge. However, the size of the unit does make portability a major issue, so I wouldn’t recommend the N02 to those looking to be super discreet.
