Vaporite Elevation (VR-005) Review

Vaporite Elevation (VR-005)

Price: $50 online

Pros:

Cheap

Digital Temperature

Quick Startup of 5 minutes

Cons:

Digital read is not accurate

Burns your product

Hard to put more product in without touching the scorching hot bowl (use a glove)

Wooden, smells funny after being on for too long

The reason why I came across this vaporizer was because my friend purchased it on a whim and then proceeded to leave it at my house for the next three weeks, forgetting it every time she was over.  Otherwise my taste is too picky for this type of vaporizer, unless you’re looking for one where you don’t have to spend any money, and you kind of get the vaporizing experience, kinda.

The Vaporite Elevation features a wooden tower with a digital temperature read and a knob for temperature control.  Inside is a ceramic heating element, and at the top of the tower is a hole for you to place the glass bowl into, at the peak of the heating element.  Once you have placed the product in the bowl, you place the tubing on top and inhale.

On this vaporizer, you should aim 20 degrees lower than whatever temperature you are trying to get because the gauge is not very accurate.  Many times people have burned their product because they set the temperature too high, make sure you set the temp accordingly.

I wish I could go on and tell you that this vaporizer does great things, but it really only “does the job.” You should buy this if you want to have the vaporizer as you secondary piece and a bong as your primary.  But otherwise, take a little more out of your wallet and find something more to your liking.

  1. I PURCHASED A ELEVATION VAPORIZER AT A LOCAL HEADSHOP. I BOUGHT THIS UNIT BECAUSE OF THE PRICE. I AM ON DISABILITY. I STARTED WITH A GUMBALL TYPE AND IT BURNED UP AFTER ONE DAY.SO I HAVE HAD THIS UNIT FOR 3 WEEKS NOW. IT HAS STOPPED HEATING UP TO OVER 500 DEG ON THE METER. IT DOES NOT DO WELL ON LOW HEAT. I CANNOT FIND OUT FROM ANYONE HOW TO REPAIR IT OR WHERE TO FIND PARTS.I HAVE NOT BROKEN THE SEAL ON THE BOTTOM TO SEE WHAT THE PROBLUM IS. DOES ANYONE KNOW IF IT HAS A WARRENTY AND IF SO FOR HOW LONG.? I SEE OTHERS ARE NOT HAPPY WITH THIS UNIT. IT DOES WELL FOR ME AS I AM NEW TO USING THESE THINGS. WHAT IS A BETTER UNIT TO BUY? AND WHERE IS THE BEST PLACE ONLINE TO GET IT. I PAID $160 FOR MY ELEVATION. NOW I SEE HERE THAT IT IS $50. IS THAT THE GOING PRICE? I NEED TO DO SOMETHING SOON AS I HAVE CRONIC PAIN AND I USE HERB FOR MY RX. THE DOCTORS IN FLORIDA ARE STUPID WHEN IT COMES TO ALTERNATIVE TREATMENTS. THEY SAY I NEED HEAVY DRUGS FOR MY PAIN BUT WILL NOT GIVE THEM TO ME. I CANNOT HANDLE MOST OF THEM ANYWAY. THE DR DOES NOT BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY I USE IT FOR PAIN CONTROL. THEY ALL SAY I JUST WANT TO GET HIGH. I AM DISABLED AND ON A FIXED INCOME. SO I CANNOT AFFORD TO GET HIGH ALL THE TIME AS THEY THINK I DO.ANY HELP WOULD BE APRECIATED…..PEACE

    • Have you tried logging onto the vaporite website? i beleive they will repair your elevation as long as you have not broken the tape on the bottom, as long as it has been less than 90 days, & I think you have to have the original receipt.

  2. I use my elevation every day and like it. The proublem is I
    broke the glass base peice that holds the product. where can I buy a replacement part?
