The Titan-1 is a very cheap and small portable vaporizer designed and produced in China.
Honestly, at first I thought that the Titan-1 is just a counterfeit of the Pinnacle Pro by Vaporblunt, but except for some minor similarities like the size and the mouthpiece, they have not so much in common. Even if the Titan-1 is inspired by the Pinnacle Pro, they have very significant differences, so I can’t say they are alike…. unfortunately!
The main reason why the Titan-1 is so interesting is the low price of around 50€ only. Therefore, the Titan-1 is much cheaper than any other portable vaporizer on the market. But what can you expect for so less money?!
Apparently not much. I totally hate it and I really would have loved to present you a fully functional vaporizer for such a low price!
From the beginning, the Titan-1 had a very extreme plastic smell and taste. So far, this is not unusual, even some of the most reputated units have this at first, but normally after you’ve burned off production leavings the smell and taste disappears, entirely. However, it took me days to reduce the smell at least so much, that I’ve dared to put something in the herb chamber. The very own smell and taste was so strong that I was not willing to put anything in there, at first. My health is very important to me, since that’s the reason why I’ve started vaping in the first place, I don’t want to poison myself by sucking on electronic scrap.
However, I’ve managed to reduce the smell and taste a lot by letting it run for a couple of hours(!) on the highest temp setting and soaking the silicone o-ring in water over night and still I can “taste” the products quality, clearly. So the skepticism towards this unit remains and I just can’t get rid of the idea, that I might harm myself while using it! Trust me, with dark thoughts like this, vaping is no fun!
Next to the bad material quality, I have realized that the vapor is extremely unpleasent hot. Even on the mid temperature setting I’ve nearly burned my lips. Also the green temperature pre-set is the only one that actually works for my purposes. The blue one is way too hot, while the red one is too low. Therefore, you can only use one of these, imho.
Apart from these negative points, I even think that the titan has potential and it’s not all bad. However, they have obviously made savings in the wrong places and the producer has even realized that himself, since they are fully aware of these issues!
Further they claim, that they already have eliminated these sources of problems and more recent Titan-1 vaporizers wouldn’t have these problems anymore. In fact, there are some people who claim that they don’t have trouble with a bad smell and taste, like me. Anyway, I have to give a rating based on what I have recieved and therefore I can’t recommend the Titan-1 to anyone, since I don’t know about possible health problems that can be caused by inhaling these plastic evaporations.
Btw. A couple of days ago, they have already released a titan-2 model with better overall quality (that’s what they say!) and excat temperature control. I’d like to believe that this one is a good unit and I actually would give this one a chance, too. However, I would stay away from the Titan-1, since you can’t evaluate at all if you will get one of these models I have, or a more recent unit.
Also I’m not so sure if the Titan-1 has a real warranty. Mine didn’t even include a manual, apart from that there is no contact data, so I guess if you have a warranty case, nobody will help you, since you simply can’t get in touch with them.
The Titan-1 is also known by the names Apex vaporizer, Wulf Mods Tundra vaporizer, eonsmoke falcon vaporizer, kalumet veda vaporizer, Vap-O-Nator vaporizer, just to name a few, since you can simply let the manufacturer print your logo on it. Maybe, these re-branded ones will come with a real warranty, but they are sold up to four times the price of the original Titan-1 vaporizer! Definitely not worth 150€ – 200€, that’s for sure!
Anyway, big big thanks to the very friendly guys of the czech electronic cigarette and eliquid shop elektronickacigareta.cz for sending me one of these to analyse it for them, since they are not yet familiar with dry herb vaporizers.
