Here is the first-ever French-designed vaporizer, the V.A.P by the brand Katalyzer. V.A.P is for ‘Vaporisateur pour Amateur de Plantes’, which in French means ‘Plants Lover’s Vaporizer’. It’s a portable convection vaporizer for herbs and concentrates that features everything needed for a personalized session. Plus, the confident manufacturer offers a solid five-year warranty on the device.
Portable convection vaporizer
The V.A.P. is a portable vaporizer. It measures ‘14.8’ cm x ‘2.2’ cm x ‘2.6’ cmcm. Its size makes it discreet, and it is convenient to carry in a bag, a pocket, and take with you on the go. The device uses a convection heating system with a stainless steel chamber. The convection heating system produces hot air through the herbs to vaporize their components. It’s an efficient system that ensures herbs are not burnt. That can sometimes happen with the conduction system, which directly heats the chamber by conduction.
The V.A.P. is a versatile device that can be used with different materials during various sessions. Indeed it vaporizes both herbs and concentrates. Plus, it’s possible to adjust the session to your liking. The vaporizer features both on-demand and session modes. The session mode allows to time up session of either 4 or 6 minutes. Otherwise, it’s possible to use the on-demand mode for a duration of your choice.
Generally, one feature that users find convenient in a vaporizer is the removable battery. This way, when the battery is empty, it’s eventually possible to switch it with another full one. Plus, changing the battery is cheaper than buying a brand new device when the battery won’t work. The V.A.P. uses a 2600mAh removable battery that will last about an hour of activity. Plus, it allows pass-through charging, which means you can use the device while charging, thanks to the USB-C charging cable.
Precise temperature control
The convection vaporizer works in a temperature range of 100°C (212°F) to 220°C (428°F). The precise temperature control allows the choice of the ideal temperature for your material. The OLED display indicates the temperature selected. To adjust it, two up and down buttons are in front of the device. Once adjusted, the vaporizer starts heating and tells it’s ready to use, thanks to the haptic feedback. For example, the vaporizer reaches the temperature of 180°C (356°F) in about 10 seconds.
Once produced, the vapor goes through an isolated airpath. The isolated airpath guarantees that the vapor is not in contact with an electronic component and is free of toxic elements. In the V.A.P. the airpath is made of ceramic which contributes to cooling the vapor. Then the vapor reaches the slightly curved mouthpiece, that according to the manufacturer, also helps to cool the vapor. Finally, the mouthpiece is attached by a magnet and is removable for a convenient filling and cleaning process.
