Multifunction vaping isn't exactly a new technology. Atmos RX and a number of other brands have released models that can be used with oil, dry herbs, and wax; however, models with multifunction technology are much more rare. Now, AtmosRX is changing that with the Astra, a portable 3-in-1 vape.
- Price - sold for just $99, the Atmos Astra is a mid-range portable unit; however, when you consider the price you would pay to buy three different vapes for dry herbs, wax, and oil, the 3-in-one vaporizer's value becomes apparent.
- Vapor Quality - as a convection vaporizer, it is highly efficient and won't combust your herbs. In all three modes, the Atmos Astra offers vapor with a pleasing taste and maximum potency. The model can produce large vapor clouds, but vapor production is more limited when the model is used as an oil or wax vape.
- Guarantee - this device has a 5-year warranty, which is long compared to other portable vapes in this price range.
- Prep Time - you can load it rather easily, but its heat up time is a little lengthy at 90 seconds. This is due mainly to the fact that it is a convection vaporizer, and it takes time for the air inside to heat up to high enough levels to warm the herbs.
- Portability - the Astra will fit in your pocket for easy carrying, but it is larger than a standard vaporizer pen. Its larger size makes it slightly less compact, but you'll still be able to easily take this vape with you when you're traveling.
- Ease of Use - one of the biggest problems with this model is that it has a lot of resistance, which can make it hard to get a big deep draw, especially for someone with breathing difficulties. The vaporizer will also need frequent cleaning, as it has air flow holes that can become quickly clogged.
- Heating and Temperature Regulators - the Astra allows you to choose from five temperature settings, and it holds its temperature well no matter what you're vaping.
- Power Supply - with a fully charged battery, it can be used 3 or 4 times, which is about average for a portable model.
The Atmos Astra is a good investment for any vapor enthusiast who is looking for a daily vaporizer for dry herbs, that can double the use with wax and oils. While it does have some downsides, this unit offers value for its price, especially compared to the price of purchasing three different models.
