    Crater Vapes
    Product/Service Website:
    https://cratervapes.com/vaporizers/crater-420-38
    Top Three Features:
    1. Convection Vaporizer
    2. Suitable for Herb, waxes and oils
    3. Easy and quick to clean
    The problem and the promise?:
    The problems:
    1. burning stuff and breathing in the smoke is definitely not good for your lungs
    2. Vaporizers generally only do one of Herb, Oil and Wax, so multiple ones are normally necessary to cover the bases.
    The Solution:
    1. Vapor is less damaging to breathe in than smoke (allegedly)
    2. A convection (rather than conduction) vaporizer along with a secondary chamber insert to enable the use of Oils and Waxes

    I love this vaporizer.
    A lot.
    You need much less herb for the same effect as smoking/bongs - I have no idea how long the 300+g of herb I have is going to last, but it is definitely going to be a lot longer than if I was smoking it.

    It is extremely smooth to inhale, and very easy to switch between temperature settings - 2 clicks on its button moves up 10 degrees (until it loops back down to the lowest setting). An additional 3-second press of the button initiates the 'boost' to increase by 5 degrees, so you can easily swap to the temperature you find most suitable.

    The 'Lifetime Warranty' option from the 'Crater Club' isn't really a lifetime warranty, and more like a combination of a warranty and a 'lay-away plan'
    For a cost of £5 per month, you get a full warranty covering malfunction and accidental damage.
    In addition, after 2 years, you also pick any vaporizer from their site and get it for free - you still keep your old vaporizer and the warranty switches to the freebie you just received.
    Zero complaints about that ;)
  • First Impressions:
    Very nice packaging with a user guide in about 12 different languages.
    Product and packaging both seem professionally manufactured and assembled.
    Actual Benefits Provided:
    Much smoother than actually smoking.
    Less odor than smoking
    The ability to use dry herb, wax and oil is a massive plus point
    Who should use this product/service?:
    anyone smoking Herb, oil or wax
    User Friendly?:
    Very user friendly. Easy to fill and clean.
    How long have you used this product/service?:
    1 month
  • Positives/Benefits:
    Much smoother than actually smoking.
    Less odor than smoking
    The ability to use dry herb, wax and oil is a massive plus point
    Negatives/Drawbacks:
    The only negative I can come up with is that the USB charger is on the base rather than the side. This means you have to set the vape on it's side to charge it - mildly annoying if you have herb/oil/wax inside it.
    Able to overcome negatives?:
    Yes - it is not an issue really with dry herb, and the secondary chamber for oils/waxes can be easily removed (with the provided tweezers) if you need to lay the vape on it's side for charging.
    Rate the Product Quality:
    • High Quality
    Would You Purchase This Product Again?:
    Yes - very much so
    Would you recommend this product/service to another grower?:
    Yes
    Conclusion/Final Thoughts:
    This is an excellent vaporizer and I couldn't really be happier with it.
    The addition of spare sealing rings and filters is an extremely nice addition to the purchase.
    The website sells spares for all parts that can be removed at a very reasonable price.
    In addition, if you purchase the 'Lifetime warranty' you get a 20% discount on all products on the site.

    The vapor is nice and smooth and it actually has EIGHT temperature settings (as opposed to the advertised 4 settings):
    180, 190, 200 and 210 degrees, with a 'boost' function to increase each setting by 5 degrees.

    Cleaning is a doddle and takes about 2 minutes with some ISO.

    Charging is fairly rapid and you get quite a few sessions from a single charge (about 10-12)
