The biggest decision people used to have when shopping for a desktop vaporizer was whether they wanted a whip, a balloon, or both. The two we’ll be comparing today, the Vapir Rise 2.0 and the VapeXhale Cloud EVO, show that there are a lot more ways to enjoy a desktop vaporizer than a single whip or balloon. These are high end units and we already know that the vapor quality is great from both, but we’re going to dive into the details and find out which one comes out of this head to head matchup on top…
You can expect excellent vapor from either of these vaporizers. Both are capable of producing smooth and flavorful vapor from both dry herbs or concentrates, and both have optional water filtration attachments as well.
The Vapir Rise 2.0 has two big advantages over the Cloud EVO though. First of all, the Vapir Rise 2.0 has precise temperature control while the EVO only has a knob. It’s also much more flexible in how it delivers the vapor.
The EVO can be used with a glass tube mouthpiece or the Hydratube attachments, while the Vapir Rise can do whips, balloons, or water filtration.
These advantages relate more to ease of use and versatility, but they have an effect on the vapor as well. At the end of the day, you’re going to have an easier time getting vapor you love out of the Vapir Rise because of the versatility.
The original Vapir Rise was built well overall, but there was one extremely annoying flaw. The heater only worked when the fan was on. This is fine if a unit is only designed for balloons, but it doesn’t make any sense when using it with a whip because it leads to a lot of wasted vapor.
Fortunately, this was one of the improvements made in the 2.0 model. Now there really isn’t anything to complain about at all.
With the Vapir Rise 2.0, you’re getting a well built desktop that offers precision temperature control, great vapor, and a nice variety in distribution methods.
The whip and balloon are pretty standard, but there’s also the bubbler attachment and the ability to attach multiple whips to the chamber for group sessions. The icing on the cake is a replaceable HEPA air filter that guarantees your vapor is always as fresh as possible.
The EVO is also built very well. The design of their vapor pathway is especially nice, with a glass tube keeping the air isolated from interior components the whole way through the unit. The air doesn’t even go through or over the heating components.
For the most part, these two vaporizers are pretty similar in build quality. I think the Vapir Rise is a little bit better though, thanks to a more versatile design and the digital temperature display.
The only thing difficult about using the Vapir Rise is keeping all the little parts organized. This is the case with most desktops though because manufacturers are able to include more moving parts that provide a better overall experience.
Once you have it all together, using it couldn’t be more easy. The buttons to control the heat, temperature, and fan speed are all large and clearly marked. Any one could figure them out.
The display is also big and easy to read. One other thing that I really like is the multiuser whip setup. This is a great way to allow members of a group to take draws at their leisure, without having to follow a specific circle or pattern.
The EVO, on the other hand, is much easier to set up. There are a lot less moving pieces involved. There isn’t any fan to control, and the temperature is set using a knob.
I think this is also the biggest drawback of the EVO. If I’m using and paying for a premium vaporizer, I feel like I should have a reasonable certainty of the temperature I’m vaping at.
The Vapir Rise wins easily in this category. Both the balloon and multiuser whip option make this a fantastic choice if you want a desktop with more range than most.
The balloon makes the location you enjoy the vapor independent of the vaporizer itself, and the multiwhip option is nice for small groups sitting around the unit.
Only one person can use the EVO at a time, and that person has to be directly beside the unit itself. It’s not a great device for groups of friends for this reason, plus all the glass makes it more fragile than most desktops.
Again, the Vapir Rise wins this category without much of a contest. While they both have flexible temperatures, the Vapir Rise shows you the exact temperature you are at while the EVO just gives you a dial and the approximate heat level.If you can’t tell, I really think this dial holds the EVO back in comparisons with other premium desktops.
The Vapir Rise 2.0 has defeated the VapeXhale Cloud EVO!
These are both good devices, but it comes down to versatility and design. The Vapir Rise offers several different ways to enjoy it’s vapor, including some clever and convenient options for groups.
As you’ve seen me mention multiple times, the temperature control and display is also a significant advantage over the EVO.
While you can use the EVO without them, it was obviously designed to be used with the Hydratubes or your own water pipe. This is a pretty cool feature, but Vapir has this angle covered with a bubbler of their own.
While Vapir’s bubbler isn’t as cool looking as the Hydratubes, getting a Vapir Rise 2.0 with the bubbler is $150 cheaper than the basic EVO and Hydratube setup.
