Vaporfi Atom Review:
I recently completed the Vaporfi Atom review, a sleek, portable vaporizer for dry herbs. VaporFi, a leader in the e-cigarette market due to the high quality of products offered that are always on the forefront of technological advances, has recently brought to the market the Atom dry herb vaporizer.
About Herb Vaporizers
A dry herb vaporizer is a device that can turn dry herbs into vapour. The popularity of these devices has been on the rise for quite a while and more and more vapers are curious and keen to taste the experience of vaporized dry herbs. At the time of writing, many top brands in the vaping industry have already released their own versions. Some of them have even released two or three editions of the same device to keep up with developments.
Currently, a big percentage of herb vaporizers cost in the range of $150-$200+, which means that you will have to put your hands deep in your pocket to buy one. Fortunately, well-known and trusted brands are entering the competition with the release of their own products which are both good quality and sophisticated.

Size and Design
The Atom portable vaporizer has an array of features, yet it is very easy to use. It is compact and can be easily carried in your pocket. Its small dimensions make it discreet to carry around and use. The shape of the Atom, it kind of reminds me of a highlighter pen, with the mouthpiece being a bit more sophisticated.
It consists of the mouthpiece and the main body of the vaporizer which hosts the ceramic oven department where your dry herbs are vaporized. The main body doesn’t have many features: on the side you can find the power button and the USB port, while on the front there is a LED system. The Atom device only comes in a Brushed Black finish.
The Atom battery has a capacity of 3000mAh which ensures that you will not have to recharge for a couple of days. The battery can be charged via a USB port which is located on the side of the atomizer, with the Micro USB Cable being included in the kit.
You can be aware of the remaining battery at all times, as there is a feature which allows the LED light shine in three different colours. Each one indicates a different battery level, just by shaking the device. This is called ‘Motion Sensing Technology’. When the Atom has full battery, the LED light flashes green. When it has partial battery, it flashes yellow. Finally, when the battery is low, the LED light flashes red.
And this is not all; The Atom Vaporizer goes on sleep mode automatically if you have not used it for 30 seconds or more. This way, it saves battery and helps preserve your herbs mixture or the marijuana. The Atom has advanced protection against overcharging, overvoltage, overload and circuit.
The Atom has a LED light which serves two purposes: The first one is the one I described above that regards battery capacity. The second one is the option to set the device to a preferred temperature. The Atom Vaporizer shines in three different colours, in order to indicate temperature. You have a choice of three different temperature settings: 360°F (182.2°C), 410°F (210°C) and 464°F (240°C). You cannot go between, you can only choose one of them. The lowest temperature is indicated with a blue light, the middle one with a green light and the highest one with a red light. If you want to choose one of these, you only have to hold the fire button and lock it when the light indicates your preferred temperature.
Operating The Atom
In order to use the Atom, you will need to open the door where the heating chamber is located, in order to place your dry herbs or marijuana. This is not difficult to do at all; You push one side of the door and the other side is automatically pushed to raise. Below the chamber, you will see a screen located, to prevent all residue from the heating process that shouldn’t go into your mouth. Every now and then, you will need to replace this screen, to experience the purest possible vapour production. VaporFi has already included a replacement screen into the Atom Herb kit. However, you can buy sets of three for $8.99 directly from their website.
When you want to use the Atom, press one time the fire button located on the side and it will shine purple, indicating that it is heating. If you press twice, it will change temperature. When the dry herb is heated, the colour will change into white which indicates that you are now ready to take a draw.
To my preference, the middle setting was the best. However, the higher is the temperature, the quicker the dry herb will be heated. The heating chamber which is located on the bottom of the device is very skilfully designed large so that you can enjoy extended sessions without needing to repack. The mouthpiece is Food Grade for hygiene reasons. The drip tip never gets scorching hot.
I found the Atom getting a bit hot when the temperature is set on the maximum setting. The sleep mode which is activated after 30 seconds when the device is not in use also helps the temperature to remain in normal levels. It takes quite a while for the heating chamber to heat the dry herbs to your preferred temperature. Once there, it is suitable for draws back-to-back. The flavour produced is really discreet.
