Last year we updated our original Haze blog to incorporate changes made in the new Haze V2 vaporizer. Since then Haze tech has released another update to their flagship unit which is now dubbed the Haze Dual V3. This vape is a very interesting one thanks to the fact that it holds the title of the world’s first dual-chamber vaporizer. While some people may be put off by how frequently Haze has been updating the vaporizer, another way to look at this is that they are actually listening to feedback and constantly improving upon earlier iterations that they offered.
The new versions aren’t just marketing ploys either, legitimate upgrades have been made. If you are familiar with older versions, some things you may be interested in are upgraded temperature regulators, better materials, and a lip on the mouthpiece that makes pulling it out much easier than before.
Keep reading to get a full review of the unit and to see if this is one that can address your vaporizer needs.
Review: Haze V3 Vaporizer
How It Works
Just like earlier versions, the Haze Dual V3 has a side cover that flips open to expose the dual heating chambers. You can use both dried herbs and concentrates in the unit, and special screens and canisters are included depending on how and what you want to vaporizer (convection, conduction, concentrates, etc…)
The fact that you can preload both chambers is very cool. You indicate which chamber to heat based on how you slide the mouthpiece cover open. The mouthpiece now easily pulls out thanks to the new lip they’ve included in the design, and setting the temperature is as easy as cycling through presets with a button on top of the unit. Once the temperature lights go from blinking to solid, the vaporizer is ready to use.
The temperature flexibility for the Haze is good enough, but not great. There are four pre-sets to choose between: 365°F, 380°F, 390°F and 415°F. All four levels can be used with dry herbs, but concentrates will only work well at the top two temps. These will get the job done, but precise temperature controls that allow full control over the temperature would be much better!
Something worth noting is that the V3 includes an updated temperature regulator that makes the Haze better at actually maintaining the temperature at the indicated level.
With each new version, the Haze gets a little bit better. There are only a few moving parts involved in the operation of the unit, and they all feel solid. The covers for the battery and heating chamber area snap securely into place, and the sliding mouthpiece cover doesn’t feel loose or easily breakable. Plastic can be a sign of a cheap unit, but that isn’t the case with this vaporizer. Overall, this is a very well-made vape.
The Haze comes with 2 2600 mAh Li-Ion batteries that are easily removed and recharged. While each battery may only last 3-4 sessions, you always have the option of purchasing extras if you don’t want to spend time recharging frequently. A full charge will take about 2 hours.
This is probably more portable than most options out there, but there are also some drawbacks that make other units more attractive if portability is a major concern to you. On one hand, this is a very well-built unit that is self-contained (only one thing to carry), meaning it can safely be carried around in your pocket. On top of this, the unit can be prepacked for TWO sessions, a major plus that cuts down on any setup work that you would otherwise need to do while out and about.
The drawback is the fact that this vape is a bit big. Not unreasonably so, but there are much smaller options on the market. If size is a big concern for you, try something like the G Pen Elite which is one of the best combinations of size and functionality available.
The Haze takes a little getting used to at the beginning. It isn’t hard to get the hang of, but you will need to experiment to see which mouthpiece you prefer, what temperature you like, and what screen or cannister suits your purposes better. Once you get that out of the way, this is pretty straightforward vaporizer. Cleaning is definitely very easy, as they specifically designed the vape with components that can be cleaned with normal Isopropyl alcohol.
