Vapium Summit Plus vaporizer review
The Summit plus is a small vaporizer from Vapium. This product to adventurous vapers who are looking for a tough, easy-to-transport vaporizer for use in the most unfavorable conditions. With the price around 100 dollars, Summit Plus vaporizer is one of the best-selling vaporizers and appreciated by average vapers and even those who have the first experience. For both categories of users, in this review, you’ll see all advantages and disadvantages of this vaporizer.
Built quality and design
The Summit Plus is the successor of Summit. From the outside, it’s a rectangular plastic case of 5 inches in length, one-inch-wide, 1.3 inches thick and a relatively low weight of 89 grams. Unlike many other vaporizers, the heating chamber is attached to the bottom of it, 4 inches away from the mouthpiece.
Three buttons are placed on the front of the vaporizer to regulate the temperature and turn on the device.
A quite interesting feature of the Summit Plus is that the lid of the heating chamber, as well as the mouthpiece, is held in place by magnets. So there are fewer moving parts that can break and because of it, the vaporizer lasts longer. This is especially important as these two parts are used the most.
A heating chamber has the ability to heat herbs from all sides simultaneously. The temperature selection goes in eight stages, from 160°C to 230°C, so it’s a quite remarkable maximum temperature. Especially when you consider a boost function that raises the temperature to 240°C in a short-term, if you are on a summit or in the Siberian taiga and need some extra power.
Problems with the combustion of the herb in the chamber are not known at the moment, even if high temperatures like in Summit Plus, in other evaporators often lead to partial combustion.
The power supply for this high-performance vaporizer is 3300 mAh battery which is permanently installed. A battery recharge on the road will be quite difficult. If you have a power bank to charge it, you can vape while charging.
In addition, the Summit Plus belongs to the new generation of vaporizers that have a smartphone application for control. The application displays the exact temperature, allows accurate temperature setting, and displays a timer for the vape session.
After only 2 weeks you will not be able to leave it. This is an innovative and intuitive tool with many advantages.
It should be noted that at a temperature of 200/210°C, the steam has a good taste and produces a good vapor cloud. Despite the arguments, it’s advisable not to exceed 230°C to avoid the taste of burnt popcorn in the mouth.
It’s a practical and comfortable portable vaporizer, but it works very well.
The vaper needs to be careful about the battery, it’s not ideal for a regular smoker. In fact, it does not last too much time so you need to have an extra battery or keep in mind that it often needs the recharge during the day. But, you also need to know that note that charging time is super-fast: it lasts only 50 minutes.
First-time users point out that vaping is not recommended while charging (the Summit plus is one of the few portable vaporizers that runs during the charging process) because it may stop when you run it. Just like the cell phones that should not be used while charging, but you know the temptation you cannot resist.
So be aware that you can use it, but it’s not recommended to use it until the battery is full.
When it comes to the cleaning and maintenance, the Summit plus is not one of the simplest vaporizers to clean: the heating chamber is relatively small and tends to get dirty quickly.
It’s recommended to clean it after ten sessions.
The “mini” size of heating chamber makes it impractical to fill it, and occasionally it may leak during the process.
Average and experienced user
Even the experienced user knows that the battery lasts about 40 minutes, so it is always advisable to carry an extra battery and keep the battery under control.
Another advantage of this evaporator is the high vapor velocity, which should not be underestimated for an experienced smoker. The Summit Plus is also chosen by users with very high standards of vaporizers. Who also appreciate the high quality at a very low price, almost amazed by their benefits.
In addition, for impatient vaper, it should be noted that Summit Plus is already charged with 50% of the battery so it can be used immediately or even carried on the trip. To see if it’s ready to use, simply press the button and when you feel a vibration, it’s ready for you!
Compared to beginners, experienced users prefer to increase the temperature almost to the maximum in order to have more flavor and more steam, although this reduces the life of the battery. But, in the end, it’s all about your personal preferences.
Pros and cons
– Super-fast charge – only 50 minutes
– Vibration as a sign that it’s ready for vaping
– A large number of temperature settings
– Not so spacious heating chamber
– Weak battery
The Summit Plus fulfilled all expectations, ignoring the heating chamber narrowness, this evaporator is very suitable for use in the extreme conditions. If you belong to the target group of Vapium, which apparently consists of hikers and mountaineers, it can be recommended for you to purchase it. Great design and affordable price make it so special.
The first benefit the experienced user understands is the practicality and versatility of this vaporizer. It’s perfect for hiking and always available. Usually, a Swiss knife in the backpack is irreplaceable, but now it can be replaced by a new friend: Summit Plus vaporizer. It’s a small vaporizer for traveling, on vacation or wherever you want. Despite the size, it’s very effective and recommended by a lot of users who would buy it again. The Summit Plus is also durable, ergonomic and easy to handle.
