A stationary vaporizer is a good investment of your time and money, but you have to make the right choice when picking your unit to make that investment count. You want to invest in something that works great and that addresses as many of your needs as possible. To help all you connoisseurs today we are going to compare two stationary units, similar in both form factor and usage. In one corner, we have the Extreme Q, a versatile unit made in Canada. In the other corner, we a have the recently updated and ready to throw down Vapir Rise. Can the new and improved model from Vapir rise to the challenge? Let’s find out in our showdown.
Extreme Q vs Vapir Rise
When it comes to outstanding quality vapor, the Extreme Q has it in spades. With a high quality ceramic heating element and glass cover, you get great tasting vapor. You can set your temperature accurately with a digital display, allowing you to have absolute control over your vapor. It can reach a maximum temperature of 260 degrees Celsius for those who want really thick and dense vapor.
The Rise with upgraded temperature flexibility delivers great quality vapor. Once you’re all set up you can share that vapor with up to 4 people! They’ve also added the option to stop the fan so you can pre-heat the unit better and vaporize at your own pace.
The Extreme Q is very well made. Stainless steel casing, a ceramic heating element with glass cover and digital display combine to create a great experience. This unit is strong and robust and provides a great tasting vapor. The taste is also enhanced by the fact that any part of the unit that touches the botanical is made of glass and thus is pure in taste.
The Rise is constructed with durability and longevity in mind. It has casing that is stainless steel, as well as a ceramic heating element. It also comes with many accessories that allow you vaporize the way that you want. These attachments all work very well once you are properly set up. The best part is that just about all the pieces are made of a durable heat resistant plastic so you don’t have to worry about your precious pieces breaking before, during, or after a session!
Ease of Use
The Extreme Q is very easy to use whether you’re using bags, whips or the potpourri attachment. You set your temperature with the digital display for precise control. It takes a little time to heat up, but the heat is consistent throughout your entire session. The unit also comes with a remote to make using the unit from a distance possible in an easy to understand way.
The Rise is easy to understand and use after 1 or 2 uses. The pieces all fit together nicely and work together harmoniously to give you a great experience. Once you are finally set up, you can also reach a lot of people at once with the hookah attachment. It would win if not for the EQ’s remote, but that feature is hard to beat.
The Extreme Q gives you true control over your temperature. You can set your temperature anywhere from 0 to 260 degrees Celsius. A digital display and remote control give you an easy to use and convenient session.
The Rise falls takes some new steps to really provide a diverse experience with a new maximum temperature of 215 degrees Celsius. This helps satisfy connoisseurs who are fans of thicker and heavier vapor that is produced at higher temperatures. You can now also effectively preheat the unit as they’ve made it so you can turn the fan on and off with the press of a button.
The EQ is really quick to heat up and only takes about two to three minutes to reach your selected temperature. Cooling down takes a little bit longer but after about 5 minutes you should be able to easily pick it up and put it away. It also does all of this very quietly just like its name suggests it should.
The Rise takes about one minute to heat up, just as its claim promised. This is partially because the unit doesn’t have to keep the fan on so there’s no air to slow down the heating process.
The Extreme Q comes with numerous ways to use it. You can use the whip attachment, use bag attachments and even a potpourri attachment for aroma therapy and essential oils. Another great feature of the Extreme Q is the included remote control. This allows you to change settings quickly and easily, even on the other side of the room. It really adds to the convenience.
The Rise comes with a large amount of accessories. All of these accessories are pretty well built and once you’ve used the unit a few times, it’s very easy to use and understand. You can choose between the whip adapter, bag adapter and even a multi-user adapter. This allows up to four people to use it at the same time which is not something we’ve seen from any other unit!
Despite a valiant effort by the newcomer Extreme Q, the VapirRise wins this showdown. While the EQ has great temperature flexibility and ease of use, it can’t beat the Rise in all of our other categories. The Rise is a robust, well-build machine that has come back to the vaporizing world even stronger than before! Congrats, Vapir!
Thanks for reading and as always, keep vapin’!
