Hot or Not? The Wizvape Portable Electronic Vaporizer

Posted on February 08 2013

 

We are always digging around the web for info about the latest and greatest Vaporizers coming to the market. We recently came across the video below that introduces the Wizvape, a new portable that claims to be launching in Spring 2013.

We're always a bit skeptical when such little info is available (this video is really the only thing we could find) about a product that is supposed to hit the market so soon (the first day of Spring in a few weeks according to Phil the Groundhog), but were intrigued by some of the product's reported features, including the all glass-ceramic heating chamber that allows you to watch the material being vaped and the built-in stirring mechanism the manufacturer is calling the "STIRHEAT Mixing System".

There are also a few choices it appears the manufacturer made that we are wondering about. The video looks like it shows a heating coil inside the heating chamber (0:15s), how will this be kept from contacting (and burning) the materials? Hopefully it's just used for stirring and the heat comes from somewhere outside the chamber, but it sure looks like a heating element in the video.

Also, we're wondering what the mouthpiece is made of, it looks like plastic (0:58s)... why would a vape maker go through the trouble of making an all glass-ceramic heating chamber and then give you a plastic mouthpiece? Seems like it kind of defeats the purpose.

These things aside, the Wizvape looks like it could be a solid portable vaporizer for loose-leaf materials. We are looking forward to learning more about this slick looking vape and will keep you posted as details become available.

Is the Wizvape is HOT or NOT? What do you like and/or not like the most about it? Does it give new meaning to the saying "taking a wiz"? Holla at us in the comments.

    Cannaisseur – Great points! I’m curious to see if the “stirheat” is an innovation as you allude to or just a gimick. Looks like the official word is that it will release “end of April”. We shall find out soon enough ;-)

    I’m willing to bet this is going to be a fantastic vaporizer, it appears it will only be for dry herbs though as I can’t see how you would use oils/concentrates with it, however they may offer some kind of accessory for that, IDK?? I rarely use concentrates anyway so that’s not an issue for me. As for the heating element & it contacting the material, Wizvape commented on their YouTube channel that it utilizes a glass-ceramic crucible to contain the materiel & separate it from the heating element (NO CONTACT), through the glass, the heating element essentially acts as an infra-red heater to achieve an adjustable temperature range of 110ºC to 260ºC within the crucible. Sounds good to me! The “STIRHEAT Mixing System” is also another EXCELLENT feature, being able to mix the material while its being vaporized will ensure even and efficient vaporization of the material, this is a feature Ive never seen in any other vaporizer, however I have a feeling this will be a common feature in future vape models. As for the mouth piece being plastic, does it really even matter? I imagine plastic would retain smells more than glass & I admit glass looks better, however glass is also much easier to break, since the mouth piece plays no significant role in the performance of the vaporizer IMHO it doesn’t really matter, however I imagine they will probably offer a glass mouth piece, if not right away then eventually I’m sure. Anyway, I can’t wait until its released so I can see some reviews, mark my words, I have a strong feeling the Wizvape is going to be an EXCELLENT performer & one of if not the best vaporizers of 2013.

    Jim – What makes you say that? As far as we know, it hasn’t even been released. Are you speaking from experience with it or just speculating?
