Vape Temperature Settings
Before we start lets go through some basics on temperature control:
1. The recommended temperature is generally between 190 – 235°C (374 to 455°F)
Note: The heating chamber design and heating element tremendously impact VaporQuality, so every vaporizer is a bit different even though you might run them at the same temperature. Poorly built vaporizers will give you poor vapor quality regardless of temperature. This is the reason why we do not carry every vaporizer in the market.
Arizer Solo Temperature Settings
The Solo has 7 temperature settings ranging from 180-210°C. One way to use this unit would be the famous “VaporStepping” technique. One would start at 190°C (Setting 3), vaporize until the vapor thickness falls below the desired level. Then you increase the temperature from setting 3 to 5. Enjoy till the vapor thins out again, and then jack it up to setting 7. Once you reach level 7 and no more vapor shows up upon exhaling, you know you’re done. The one setting we all liked best was level 5 or 200°C (392°F). Lower levels (1-4) have really crisp flavor but higher temperatures (6 &7) produce thick vapour.
DaVinci Temperature Settings
The DaVinci 2.0 is capable of vaporizing up to 207°C and has a great digital display. This vape works really nicely in the lower temperature ranges, but we all agreed that the sweet-spot is 195°C. So jack it up to that level utilizing “VaporTasting“. Basically start at 190°C and after every two drags (make sure you drag very very slowly), push it up 3-5°C . This ensures that the vapor is not too dense and hot at the same time. If you want the vapor on this unit to be nicer and crisper, we would definitely recommend buying the snorkel as it improves vapor quality, by enabling it to cool down. Don’t forget that the DaVinci can be used to vape oils at the highest temperature settings.
PAX Temperature Settings
Vapir NO2 Temperature Settings
The Vapir NO2is capable of vaporizing up to 205°C. Just like the DaVinci this unit has the advantage of a digital display allowing you to set your temperature to the nearest degree. Our testing team found this unit to work better at lower temperatures, just like the DaVinci. When cranking the unit all the way up the vapor got a bit harsh and lost its smoothness. Therefore we definitely recommend staying under 200°C (392°F). The sweet-spot temperature we would all agree on was 195°C (383°F) as it gave us the best combination of flavour and vapour density.
