My Iolite Vaporizer Review
I picked one of these up recently from my local headshop for $250, which is a bit pricey, but this baby was worth every penny and more. It is about the size of an iPhone and about the width of two iphones, and the only sound it makes is a gentle static sound as the flameless-catalytic engine vents exhausted butane. One tank full of butane will run the device for about 1.5-2 hours, which, believe me, is a hell of a session with the Iolite.
Pros of the Iolite personal vaporizer:
Extremely stealthy, you could even take this baby into a movie theater.
Brings out the flavors of your herbs.
If your Iolite ever breaks down, the customer service is awesome.
Slightly awkward to pack.
Slight learning curve.
Can be a hassle to fill.
Temperamental if you use the wrong grade of butane.
Important note: ONLY use butane at least 4x-5x refined, such as vector. The ignition system in mine actually failed because I used poor quality butane.
