Made by Vapor Blunt, the Palm 2.0 Vaporizer is one of the least expensive portable vaporizers on the market for the price.
If you’re just entering the wonderful world of portable vaporizers, this may be a decent “starter” unit, but there are some things that I don’t like about it.
Let’s check it out.
To start, loading it up is really easy. The design on the Palm really takes advantage of the space it has available to it, finding places to put all of the necessary items without a whole lot of wasted area. The herb trench, specifically, is a little small in comparison to similar models like the Launch Box, but not so small that you won’t be able to get a good session out of it and the accessibility alone makes it worth it. Furthermore, you can pack it reasonably tightly and don’t have to worry about an extremely fine grind.
All you have to do is put in one of the two batteries and press down, wait a few seconds, and you’ll start to get a decent vapor that will increase as you use it. One of the most interesting things about the design is that they used a clear mouthpiece so you can actually see the vapor going to your mouth. The unit itself comes with two mouthpiece attachments, a flavored and an unflavored one, which is a nice option to have, though I prefer the unflavored since I use tobacco that I enjoy the taste of already. Still, if you have an unflavored herb, the other mouthpiece might add a little extra enjoyment to your drags.
The Palm 2.0 vaporizer comes with two batteries that look like AAs. They charge easily in a wall socket charger and have red and green light indicators to let you know when they’re ready. Unfortunately, these tend to short out if used for extended periods, so it’s best if you keep it separate from your device while in a pocket and capped with the protector. Considering they’re a little loose in the battery port on the vape, they would fall out regardless.
Unfortunately, there is only one heat setting on this device, but it works really well and the herb trench is small enough that you get an even bake on what’s in there.
This unit comes with a rechargeable NIMH battery and when it’s fully charged should last you about 20-30 minutes of continuous vaporization.
Cleaning and maintaining the Palm 2.0 is easy . For the most part, just take one of the pipe cleaners that comes with it, use that to pop out the screen, and wipe the inside of the mouthpiece with a cloth. I always take a little bit extra time to clean the herb trench as well, but it’s not really necessary. I guess I’m OCD like that.
When you buy this unit, here’s what you’ll get:
- 2 Batteries
- 2 Mouthpiece Tips
- A Battery Charger
- The Instruction Manual
In my opinion, while this unit is cheap, I don’t think it’s worth it. It doesn’t have as many options as other portable vapes, and it feels like it’s made on the cheap. I do like that it’s small and easy to use, but considering the vapor quality and learning curve associated with it are sub-par , I think there are better portable vaporizers out there if you’re looking for a good unit to start off.
Editors note: Looks like this little guy has been discontinued. Too many advancements in vapes, man.
