After so many requests the past couple of months from some of our readers, we needed to do a Vapir NO2 review and dig into this unit.
I was a little hesitant in getting this portable vaporizer considering how much I disliked the Vapir One, but I have to say that I was actually surprised. It’s simple, easy to use, and really doesn’t have a whole lot of issues.
Loading the vape was remarkably easy.
All you have to do is twist off the top to reveal the heating chamber, take the convenient scoop that they provide and fill it about two thirds full, screw the top back on and you’re all set. As I was using this, I kind of wondered why more companies don’t usually provide a scoop like that since it’s so easy useful.
Charging is a little unique in that it comes with a small battery pack which is charged separately and inserted into the bottom of the unit.
On one hand, this is great because getting multiple batteries means that you can still vape while charging. On the other hand, extra batteries can add up, so you may be stuck just waiting a few hours for it to fully charge.
Using the Vapir No2 was also really simple.
There are two places that you need to turn it on – one is a switch on the side which activates the digital readout, and the other is a button on the front that actually turns on the heating element. This works really well as a system.
Once the vapor gets going, you get a consistent stream thanks to excellent temperature regulation, a huge improvement over the One. Sometimes the vapor comes out a bit too hot with the default tubing, but if you get a little longer tube, that fixes that issue.
I really like that this unit allows me to set the specific temperature that I want.
In doing my Vapir NO2 review and with a little bit of research, I found myself heating up to around 355°F.
Vapir says that you want to be between 350°F to 365°F for when you’re vaping, as that is the optimal temperature range is, but remember, you kind of have to experiment on your own especially if you are using various herbs.
One charge on this bad boy and you’re looking at around 1-2 hours of continuous use which equates to about 5-6 uses depending on how you vape.
To fully charge this unit, it takes around 2-3 hours, however you can vape while it’s plugged in if you don’t want to wait that long.
Another thing that helps that battery life on the Vapir No2 is that it has an automatic shut-off after 20 minutes of idle time which is really helpful in conserving battery life without having to babysit the temperature settings.
- 4 Mesh Replacement Screens
- 1 Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery
- 1 Tube Attachment
- 1 Vapir Mouthpiece
- The Wall Charger
- 1 Herbal Scooper
- 1 Cleaning Brush
- 2 Stirring Sticks
Taking care of it isn’t too bad.
The cleaning brush that comes with the unit is more than enough to keep it free of debris and you can store it pretty much anywhere. It’s solid enough to handle a drop or two without any problems.
Basically, the only thing you’ll need to do is change the screens occasionally, which is easy enough to do, and replace the tubing every once in a while.
One thing that I didn’t mention above is that this vaporizer has that heavy and durable feel, and I like that. More battery life and a bigger chamber make that worth it. It needs a better stem and the first few pulls the first use were a bit “plastic-y” until that went away, but otherwise this is the kind of vaporizer that more companies should be looking to model their vaporizers after.
