In stationary vaporizers, we look for a solid, sturdy construction and that’s exactly the case of V-Tower from Arizer. The tower in the name of the product not only refers to the outer look but also is an alias for the strategy used in constructing the unit – vertical, even distribution of the heat on the surface of the big chamber. The body made of aluminum is a good insulation with maximal temperatures the vaporizer is capable of.
V – Tower is capable of producing a really good quality steam. The heating chamber is meant for ca. 0.4 g of herbs. When it is filled completely, the vapor is very dense and quite tasty. However, there are problems with less material. However, we found a solution for it. Instead of simply making things in accordance with the instructions, load the herbs into the sieve and place it in the glass curved part at the end of the tubing. This will enable vapor to be much more concentrated. This way, even a small amount of herbs, like 0.1 gram, will give you an enjoyable experience.
V – Tower comes with a glass overlay called potpourri dish. It is used to vaporize flower petals, vanilla or cotton balls soaked with essential oils. This solution allows you to instantly generate a new, intense smell that spreads around the room. You surely will find a perfect situation to use this feature. Another great addition is the glass tool for mixing herbs. You can use it to very easily mix the herbs or extract and compress herbs without the risk of burning your fingers.
The time at which V-Tower heats up is average – it reaches the set temperature within more or less 3 minutes. It is better to wait another few minutes to allow the heat spread to all the glass components, otherwise, they can excessively cool down the steam.
Temperature controls in V-Tower are quite impressive. The digital display shows current temperatures and lets you control them with a one-grade precision (both in Fahrenheit and Celsius) to the maximum of 260̊ C. Mostly, people tend to go for lower temperatures, but they will surely say yes to an optional upgrade allowing a thicker steam. Unfortunately, there is no possibility of inhaling through the balloon, which is by far the most convenient form of inhalation. This feature has been added to the newer version – Extreme Q6.0.
The quality-price ratio is superb. Taking into consideration a new technology of heat distribution, a spacious chamber, and good cooling specs, it is a clear advance in vaporizing. The inside of the unit is clean of brass elements so you don’t have to worry about any unwanted aromas and tastes.
