The Duplex from Oozelife is nothing special to look at and with a price of only $59 it doesn’t really have to be. As the name implies, this is a dual-use vaporizer for both oils and waxes but how much can this device pull off for under one-hundred bucks? Well, we had the chance to take a look at this budget vape from the ever-popular manufacturer.

Review: Ooze Duplex
How it Works
Unlike the Duplexes many more complicated siblings, this handheld is extremely simple to use. In the box, you will get a battery pack and two tanks.
The first is for oils, it’s a ceramic tank that closes off completely with a cap allowing the vaporizer to be conveniently carried around. The other is a prehistoric dual-quartz tank for waxes.
Now, I’m no fan of dual-quartz in vaporizers – definitely not in 2018. I think they should have been left behind when newer technologies came about but let’s not forget that this is a budget vape – to implement more advanced technology would raise the price.
It’s as simple as filling the tanks and turning the device on. The vaporizer uses a hold-to-vape system more akin to an e-cigarette, so make sure you are holding down to heat up the chamber.
There are a solid four voltage settings on the Oozelife Duplex, quite impressive for such a small portable.
The temperatures are 3.4V, 3.6V, 3.8V and 4.0V. Set the temperature before vaping.
Lower voltage will produce smoother vapor but less visible vapor, while higher voltage will provide bigger clouds.
As we mentioned earlier, the dual-quartz coils are not majorly impressive but they definitely do the job very well.
For the price, you get big knockout clouds even on the lower levels with a deliciously rich taste.
A straight 8/10 for getting the job done, Oozelife.
Well, I’ll try to keep this section short and sweet but this is where the Duplex really shines. I had to keep reminding myself that this device only costs sixty bucks because for that price you get a super convenient vape. It seems like Oozelife has thought of everything.
To begin, the vape comes in black by default but you can also get it in a cool faux-gold which really stands out. The Duplex is small, in fact, it’s super dinky and can be easily palmed. In the hand, it feels cool and metallic although most of it is plastic and its weight is nothing to write home about.
Multicolored lights inform you of the current voltage, making the already aesthetically pleasing device even more good looking. Aside from that, there is a metal cover which attaches itself to the controls magnetically, covering them easily. The extra cool part is that you can hold down the power through the cover so when you’re on the go there’s no need to remove it.
The tanks that come with the unit are sturdy and slide effortlessly into the battery, clicking into place with magnets which – if you are a long time vaporizer user – you will appreciate very much. The battery isn’t extraordinary, in fact, it follows the rule of most vaporizers – short but sweet.

You’re looking at five full sessions on a medium heat and of course, your battery will die sooner or later depending on whether you use maximum or minimum voltage respectively.
This is another area where the Oozelife Duplex stands out. This is a small and sleek device that fits comfortably in the palm of even the most slender hands.
I have particularly large hands and could conceal this little thing in my palm with ease. Add to that the low-key mouthpieces that sheepishly poke their heads out allowing for stealthy hits and you have a great everyday vaporizer.
Ease of Use
Most vaporizers are fairly self-explanatory but this surpasses all those I have seen before. You will not need to open a manual for this device as there are only three pieces in the box and of those, you only need two.
Everything just works with this tiny but powerful unit.
Oozelife has created a very user-friendly vaporizer for well under a hundred bucks.
The Duplex is a very stylish and cute device designed for those who want a great all-rounder but perhaps have their reservations about shelling out hundreds for a more pricey alternative.
The fact you can use both oils and waxes with the included tanks makes it quite versatile and suitable for those who might just have dipped their toes into the world of vapables.
If you are looking for a starter unit that specializes in only waxes we suggest checking out the Zeus Thunder 2 and if you are interested in something small for e-liquid be sure to check out the Kandypens Rubi.
