A couple of months ago, a member of the vaporizer community fuckcombustion.com stumbled upon this new portable dry herb vaporizer by Shenzen Smiss Technology Co., Ltd. on a chinese marketplace. Out of pure curiosity, he decided to order one of these cheap units and was really surprised by what he has recieved in a positive way.
This first review caused a real hype about the vaporizer from china and quickly the Flowermate Vapormax V turned into the new topseller on the market. By now, every good vaporizer shop carries these and there are already thousands of happy Flowermate owners, worldwide.
So now it was time for me, as well to find out if it’s really that good, like everyone says. However, since I never had any doubt in these plenty positive reviews, my expectations were really high, too.
Still, I have to say, I was really surprised, as well! Wow, this thing is not bad indeed. Yes, I really like it too and I have even recommended it to a very close friend myself, who’s on a strictly limited budget!
In fact, the company behind the Vapormax products seems to care and listen to their customers wishes. The latest edition of the Flowermate includes a glass mouthpiece next to the silicone one and has a more discreet logo, as well. This is something a couple of people have asked for and Smiss has delivered it, quickly! Further Smiss Technology tries to break into the market, ultimately and has released a second dry herb vaporizer, lately. The pen-stlye unit goes by the name of Flowermate G3 and uses similar capsules than the inhalater. Anyway, I will tell you about this one later, when it’s here. Now, let’s get back to topic!
The Flowermate V5.0 is a very elegant unit with a aluminium housing, about the size of a pack of cigarettes. It’s available in eight different colors and you can get it for 80$ only including shipping, when ordering from china directly. It only features one temperature preset (no info about the exact temperature range), however the vapor is very clean, tasty and long lasting. Also the herbs come out brown, evenly. Exactly, like they should. There is definitely no combustion going on! The Flowermate doesn’t produce the thickest vapor I have ever seen, but it is very satisfying indeed, just not the cloudiest one.
The V5.0 is powered by two strong LG/Samsung 2600mAh batteries. It only takes about 45 seconds to reach vaporizing temperatures. After 10minutes the Flowermate will shut off, automatically. You can store about 2.0g of fine grinded herbs in the herb chamber. On the other side, you will find a storage for the mouthpiece (watch out, the glass mouthpiece will surely break, if you drop it).
To start the unit, press the button 5 times. Now, hold the button for 3 seconds and the Flowermate will start heating and you can start to enjoy some fine vapor. It’s really easy to use and there is absolutely no learning curve. You simply can’t do anything wrong! Just remember to take slow and deep puff, for the best vaping experience.
If you’re looking for a reliable, cheap and easy portable vaporizer, the Flowermate will do the job, for sure!
