The NimbinVap 4.2 is the latest version of the tiny party-vaporizer by australian company NimbinVap.
It is still very similar to the previous model, so I recommend to check out my NimbinVap 4.0 review in addition, since this review will only focus on the differences between these two models!
The main difference between the NimbinVap 4.0 and the NimbinVap 4.2 is that most metal parts have been replaced with wood, since these parts can get very hot after a couple of hits. To reduce the risk of burning yourself, they have decided to make it even more natural. So despite from the o-rings, the screen and the combustion stopper, the thumb-sized vaporizer is now entirely made of wood.
More natural is also the finish of the NimbinVap 4.2. Looks very untreated to me. However, I did like the shiny finish of the NimbinVap 4.0 a little more. My old NimbinVap 4.0 does look a little more valuable to me, when I compare them directly.
Although, the new model comes in a little cardboard box with their logo printed on, instead of a regular zip lock bag. This makes the NimbinVap 4.2 appear much more professional than the previous model, in my humble opinion.
Also the NimbinVap 4.2 comes with a small hemp wick coil, so you can start to use your new vaporizer the natural and healthy way without the direct flame of a butane lighter, right away.
So if you’re planning to get a NimbinVap in the near future, make sure to get the latest version. Mainly because it’s much more safe to use and you don’t need to let it cool down as long as you have to with the NimbinVap 4.0 before you can take another bowl. Also I think the taste of the vapor is a little better, too. Despite from that the differences are very little, though and I probably wouldn’t not buy the 4.2 model if I would already owe a NimbinVap 4.0.
