The Eclipse Vaporizer is a lighter powered vaporizer pipe by US based company Herbal Innovations, which can be used with oils, waxes and dry herbs.
The heating chamber is a small and simple boro-silicate glass capsule, you need to screw on the metal pipe body, after filling in your material.
Now, you only need a lighter to heat up the glass capsule, manually. So it is very easy to use, but it also takes a lot of time and heating to finish a single bowl. How long exactly depends on which type of lighter you will use (all lighters work), though!
I prefer a regular lighter, since a torch-lighter will reach vaping temperatures much quicker, but the risk of combustion is much higher too, especially when using dry herbs. Either way, the glass gets extremely hot, so better watch out.
However, the Eclipse Vape Vaporizer works much better with oils and waxes, anyway! If you want a vaporizer pipe for dry herbs only, I would recommend getting a Vaporgenie Pipe instead. It is a bit cheaper and does dry herbs very well and much quicker than the Eclipse Vape.
One of the biggest issues, I have with my Eclipse, is that it’s extremely hard to clean, since you can’t reach the edges of the capsules, very well. A Q-Tip with some ISO alcohol works best for me, but it’s still not ideal, though.
Another problem might be to brake the capsule while it’s attached to the pipes body. It will be very hard to unscrew the broken capsule, without hurting yourself. Also the life-time warranty will not cover such damage!
Apart from that, the Eclipse is a fine vaporizer pipe and works extremely well with oils and extracts, but with 74.50€ it’s not your cheapest option.
Btw. there is also a Eclipse Vape H20 edition for 94,50€ that can be attached to any standart 14mm or 18mm water-tool.
