Vaporizer Reviews - Find the Perfect Vape Pen banner - VaporPlants

The Hot Box Whip-Style Vaporizer is a dry herb vaporizer that has many devoted fans. While it's been on the market for some time, it's still a favorite among many vapor enthusiasts due to the many unique benefits that it provides.

The Basics of the Hot Box Whip-Style Vaporizer

HotBox Vaporizer for Dry Herb all Colors and Versions

- Price - One of the biggest selling points of the Hot Box Whip-Style legal marijuana vaporizer is that it is one of the lowest priced desktop vaporizers on the market. The suggested retail price of the model is around $185, but you can often purchase it for less than $120.

- Vapor Quality – Compared to other desktop vaporizers, the Hot Box vape offers average vapor quality. You can expect to get large clouds of potent vapor, but some of the taste of your dry herbs may not be fully retained by this vaporizer. In addition, the vapor is not as smooth as what you might enjoy with other desktop vaporizers; however, considering its low price point, the dry herb vaporizer performs rather well.

- Guarantee - Hot Box Vapors offers a 5-year warranty on the heating element of the Hot Box dry herb vaporizer, which is as good or better than many other desktop vapes. The glass elements are not warrantied, but this is not uncommon.

- Prep Time - A major drawback of the Hot Box Whip-Style Vaporizer is its long heat- up time. Typically, the dry herb vape will take 10 minutes to reach working temperature, which is significantly longer than many other herbal vaporizers. Setting up the vaporizer is easy, because there are no dials or knobs to turn. You can simply fill your wand and turn the unit on.

- Ease of Use - The HotBox Vaporizer is offered in two styles: a standard glass connection model, and a hands-free ground glass connection model. Both types feature a 2-piece wand that is very easy to fill and to clean. Drawing from the vaporizer is rather simple, compared to other vaporizers; however, the tubing on the whip can complicate vaping. Unlike the tubing used for other vaporizer whips, the vape hose is very stiff. This can make it hard to insert with either style, and cause the wand to slip out of the ground glass model.

- Heating and Temperature Regulators - With the Hot Box Whip-Style Vaporizer, you get only one temperature setting. This can be a positive for someone who is new to vaping, but for those who are more experienced, and like to be able to set the heat level to correspond with what they're vaping, this could be a disappointing limitation.

  • Longer heat up time than other desktop vaporizers
  • Exterior and the wand can become very hot
  • Tubing is very stiff and coils up, which can make the vaporizer harder to use with the standard whip, and can cause the ground glass version to disconnect
