Puffit X Vaporizer Review – Forced Air Portable ?!

19
Many people who want to take advantage of the benefits of vaporizing often do so with discreetness in mind. With that in mind, Discreet Vape developed a great portable vaporizer that can provide discreetness on a near ninja level that would change the portable vaporizer world for the better. That unit was the first forced air portable vaporizer on the market: The Puffit X. The unit achieves this feat by looking almost exactly like a standard asthma puffer! That way, if you’re out in public and want to have a quick session, you can pull it out and take a puff without anybody getting suspicious. This is a pretty big deal, so we decided we’d take an in depth look at this unit so we could give you a review of the Puffit X!

Puffit X Review

Looking inside the Puffit X's heating chamberHow to Use

 

The Puffit X is remarkably easy to use. All you have to do is unscrew the silver cap to expose the heating chamber and load your botanical. Once it’s filled, put the silver cap on and pull the cover off of the mouth piece. This will automatically turn on the unit and you should see a red light already on inside the vapor pathway. Next, push down on the silver top cap like you would a normal puffer and hold it for 2 seconds to engage the heating chamber. The light will flash red as the heating chamber warms up and will turn to a solid green light once the chamber reaches the selected temperature. Now, all you have to do is press down on the silver cap again to engage the fan and let the Puffit X blow your vapor directly into your mouth! After a few seconds the green light will turn yellow and the heating element will disengage, the fan will stop and the unit will go back into standby mode to avoid overheating. All you need to do is press the button again to start the process back up and enjoy another mouth full of vapour!

What’s up everyone? This is Keagan for TorontoV TV. Let’s have a look at the Puffit X, the world’s first forced air vaporizer from Discreet Vape. First I’ll tell you what’s inside the box then we’re getting to how it works.
Inside the package you’ll find the Puffit X portable vaporizer, one magnetic mouthpiece cap, one wall charger, one USB cable, one charging stand, one silicone heat cap, one Neoprene carry bag, three mouthpiece covers, four screens, one wire cleaning tool, one filler funnel and if you order with us you can also select to receive a free Zeus Bolt Grinder made of aircraft-grade aluminum.
The first thing you’re going to want to do with your unit is sterilize it. To do that pull off the magnetic mouthpiece and then pull off the plastic cover to reveal the temperature dial. Next turn the unit up to max and put the plastic cover back on. Once you’ve done that press and hold the top of the unit in order to turn the units heating element on. The red light inside of the mouthpiece will begin to flash to let you know that the unit is heating up to the appropriate temperature. Once unit has reached temperature the light inside of the mouthpiece will go to solid green. Now just let the unit sit. After about 90 seconds the auto shut-off will engage and turn the unit off. To turn the unit back on again put the magnetic mouthpiece back onto the unit and then take it off again then repeat the steps over. You’ll need to repeat the steps about three times in order to have the unit fully sterilized. Once that’s done the unit is ready for use.
To load your unit you’re going to need two things. The first is freshly ground botanical. To grind up your botanical we always suggest using the Zeus Bolt Grinder. It’s been calibrated to grind up your botanical to the perfect consistency. That means its fine enough to be properly vaporized inside of your unit but not so fine that it falls through the screens. The second thing you’re going to need to do is open up your heating chamber. To do that turn the cap at the top of the unit until the groove in the unit matches up with the metal of the cap and then pull the cap off. This will reveal the gold plated heating chamber. Once you’ve done that simply put your ground botanical into the heating chamber making sure to fill it up all the way for best results. Once it’s completely filled put the cap back on top of the unit and turn it to lock it in place.
The Puffit X has eight temperature settings that range from 150°C to 220°C. For best results we suggest between vaporizing between 190°C and 220°C. That’s between levels about five and eight. To change the temperature settings pull off the plastic cover to reveal the temperature dial and then move temperature dial until it’s set to your desired temperature setting. You can also adjust the fan speed by pressing on a top cap or removing the magnetic mouthpiece. While the top cap is still held down use the temperature dial to turn the fan up or down. And then once you’re done put the magnetic mouthpiece back on while the top cap is still being held down. Once all your settings are ready simply press and hold the top cap until the red light in the mouthpiece starts flashing. This will indicate that the unit is heating up to the selected temperature. Once it has reached temperature the light in the mouthpiece will turn to solid green. At this point press down on the mouth cap to engage the fan and enjoy your vapor.
To wrap this video up i’d like to tell you guys about some of the impressive features of the Puffit X that make it such a great vaporizer. The first is that is the forced air option. This unit is the worlds first forced air portable and this is great for anybody who has lung issues or who may need to reap the benefits of the fan in order to enjoy their vapor. The second thing is this unit is portable. Because this unit is so light and easy to carry around it’s a great option for anybody who likes to be away from the house and vaporize while they’re out and about and on the go. The third thing is this unit is Stealthy. Because it looks just like an asthma inhaler this unit is perfect for people who want to enjoy private sessions in private settings.
The Puffit X is ideal vaporizer for users looking for the most discreet on the go vaporizer to match their fast paced vaporizing lifestyle.
I’m Keagan for TorontoV TV. We hope you enjoyed this video and we hope you find it useful. And for all you connoisseurs out there: “Keep vaping!”
The Puffit X's vapor pathway

Temperature Settings

 

The Puffit X has a total of 8 temperature settings the manufacturer states that you can set the temperature between 155 and 220 Degrees Celsius.  We’ve found that in order to really get any vapor from the unit, you have to start at around 7 which is about 210 degrees Celsius. On the highest temperature setting the Puffit-X produces a flavorful, light vapor. This means that even when you’re at the maximum heat setting, you’re still unlikely to draw much attention while you use it.

Manufacturing Quality

 

The outside of the vaporizer is constructed with plastic to make sure the unit looks as much like a medical inhaler as possible. The vapour pathway is constructed of stainless steel and the heating chamber is gold-plated to ensure even heating of your botanical. This unit doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel in this respect and keeps the look and make of the unit essentially the same as the Puffit, with the addition of the fan inside the unit.

Portability

 

This unit is quite small, has a decent battery life and is very light weight which makes it very portable. That combined with the look of the unit means you won’t have any trouble bringing this vaporizer around with you for a quick session while you’re on the go. Being shaped like a regular puffer does come with a disadvantage – it doesn’t fit very nicely in your pocket. It has a bit of an awkward feel if you’re walking around with it in your pocket, but it’s a small price to pay for the discretion the unit provides.

Battery Life

 

As we mentioned before, the battery life of this vaporizer is decent. With a full charge, the unit is able to last about 4 complete sessions before needing to be recharged. To make recharging more convenient, the unit has a 1 hour rapid charge that will bring the unit back to 80% battery power when plugged in with the AC adapter and an auto shutoff that keeps the unit from needlessly expending energy when not in use.

This unit is easily one of the most discreet vaporizers on the market. Its form factor and function keep the unit from attracting too much attention or suspicion, letting the user vaporize covertly even in more public places! This is by far the biggest advantage this unit has over every other vaporizer on the market!

Ease of Use

 

This unit is as easy to use as a real puffer. All you have to do is push the button, let it heat, push it again and enjoy. Cleaning it is a bit more difficult but a little cleaning solution on a grime stick will make short work of anything in your heating chamber and on the cap. Using this vaporizer is even easier than using the regular Puffit because all you have to do it push the button and breathe in the vapor!

Over all Experience

 

The Puffit X is a super discreet and convenient vaporizer. It makes taking draws from the unit a breeze and using the unit in public an easy task to say the least. If you’re looking for a vaporizer that has mastered the art of hiding in plain sight, this is the perfect vaporizer for you!

Warning: Not Compatible with ZEUS Iceborn
This vaporizer is not compatible with the ZEUS Iceborn, a revolutionary new vapor cooling system designed to produce cooler draws and bigger clouds when connected to your vaporizer. The ZEUS Iceborn adds an additional 2 points to the vapor quality score of compatible units, so we highly recommend considering a whip-compatible vaporizer to take advantage of this stellar ZEUS accessory item. All compatible vaporizers will have a compatibility notice.

  1. While at home its certainly vapor quality but when away from home its worry of being found out through actions or smell so Discretion wins out when out, moe

  2. I like the size and design of this product. It looks very easy to use and nice that it has 8 different temperature settings. I would like to get one of these Puffit X units one day.

  3. Vapor quality more important than anything. Discretness is important, but not at all time, so its less important. As for batterie life, i dont use anything witha batterie XD, only electric and manual heating(torch use).

  4. Battery life.. I don’t want a vaporizer that dies every 3 times I use it. The battery pretty much is directly correlated to the vapor quality and technically its more descret cuz you don’t have to plug it in as often.

  5. Vapor quality is by far the most important feature for me. Better quality vapor gives a better, longer lasting, cleaner effect from botanicals or concentrates. The rest are secondary to me as I typically vape at home or use the car charger while I’m out and about for my solo.
