The connoisseurs who’re up to date with all our reviews will likely be familiar with our review of the Pinnacle. If you’re not you can take a look for yourself now, but the long and the short of it is that we kinda liked it back then, but we thought there were some places it could improve. Today, the unit would get a worse review because there are actually much better options to the extend that we discontinued the regular Pinnacle from our online shop. To be more specific, we thought the vapor quality and temperature flexibility could be improved with a few tweaks, something the Dan from Vapesterdam and Buzz from VaporizerWizard mentioned as well. Let’s jump into the Pinnacle Pro DLX Vaporizer review to get a closer look at this upgraded unit!
Review: Pinnacle Pro DLX Vaporizer
How it Works
The Pinnacle Pro is a simple 1 button style vaporizer that turns on with the press of a button. To change the temperature of the unit, just press the button again to cycle through the 5 temperature settings. The little capsules provided for both concentrates and dry botanical can be easily loaded before inserting them into the heating chamber and just as easily dumped out when your session is finished. To turn it off, just hold the power button and the unit will power itself down.
This unit has 5 temperature settings indicated by the lights below the power button on the unit. 1 light means the unit is set at 188 degrees Celsius, 2 lights means the unit set at 201 degrees Celsius, 3 lights means the unit is set at 215 degrees Celsius, 4 lights means the unit is set at 229 degrees Celsius and all 5 lights means the unit is set at a whopping 243 degrees Celsius! This is a really high maximum temperature for a portable vaporizer and is a huge improvement over the original.
The unit’s temperature flexibility gives it the ability to provide vapor for just about any connoisseur from the super thick and satisfying to the thin and flavorful. The placement of the heating chamber, however, hasn’t been changed, so taking draws directly from the unit make for warm and sometimes irritating vapor. Luckily, the DLX comes with the Micro Shower attachment which filters the vapor through water to make it nice and smooth with each draw. Too bad it can’t filter the plastic flavor out of the vapor.
VaporBlunt managed to keep everything that made the previous Pinnacle a pleasure to use. The body is impact resistant, sleek and easy to carry around and best of all, it’s still simple to use. The unit also doesn’t get hot while it’s in use, so you can get through your whole session while comfortably holding the unit without a problem. Lastly, the Micro Shower attachment is well made and fits nicely onto the top of the unit and is pretty durable for a glass component.
This unit can operate continuously for about 45 minutes before needing to be recharged, which is pretty decent considering they’ve increased how hot this unit can get without increasing the size. This unit also has an auto shutoff that engages after 8 minutes to save the battery a bit and to top it off, this unit can be used while it’s charging so you don’t have to stop the session when you plug it in!
The Pinnacle Pro’s sleek design makes it really easy to put into your pocket and carry with you because it’s made of impact resistant plastic which is nice and durable and also very light. The whole unit can fit into your pocket and you could easily forget it’s even there!
Ease of Use
This unit is really easy to use. There is only one button and a quick press of it is all you need to turn the unit on or change the temperature. Pressing and holding the button turns it off and because of the capsules used for your dry botanical or extracts, loading and unloading the unit is incredibly easy. Cleaning it is even nice and simple because the capsules can be dropped into cleaning solution and the mouth piece just needs to be swapped every now and again.
Like we mentioned earlier, the size of this unit is pretty great, and it makes it easy to hide the unit in your hand while you’re using it. It’s also easy to slip it into a pocket quickly if need be. The temperature flexibility also allows you to turn the heat down so that the vapor is even less nor
The Pinnacle Pro DLX is a pretty impressive unit that delivers a durable, reliable and easy to manage experience with awesome, water filtered vapor thanks to the Micro Shower attachment. Unfortunately, there is a lot of plastic used in the construction of the unit, and the plastic in the mouth piece ends up affecting the flavor of the vapor adversely. If you liked the original Pinnacle, you might also like the Pro. The main feature is that you can buy the Hydro tube and have some vapor bonging going on. Overall it is certainly overpriced for what it offers, but there are people that really like it. We are much bigger fans of units like the Smite + and Arizer Air, but the pinnacle definately does the job as well. Otherwise you might want to skip this unit and save up for another, higher quality unit.
