This is the Flytlab Lift vaporizer for dry herb. It’s small, compact, discreet, easy to carry around – all the traits you look for in a true pocket-portable.
There’s a ceramic oven inside that utilizes a hybrid of conduction and convection heating, and it’s a pretty large chamber. The max capacity is just about ~0.5g if you grind fine and that’s definitely above average. I also happen to recommend packing it full and tight for the best performance, so I would plan on packing between 0.3-0.5g in there.
The mouthpiece at the top is retractable and held in place magnetically, and it also doubles as a packing tool to tamp down your herb during your session (pretty cool, improves vapor production).
Speaking of vapor production, I give it an A in that department because you can get some pretty monster clouds from it if you want to. The taste and smoothness of the vapor also gets a B/B+ for being above average.
Draw resistance is one of the few downsides of a conduction vape so it’s not a completely free-flowing draw, it’s gonna feel a little hard to pull. This is normal and what you’re supposed to do is take a nice slow draw from it (“sip” it) for 5-10 seconds to get a real dense hit.
You can expect roughly ~15 draws per session but this of course depends on a few things: heat setting, load size, draw duration. It has an auto shut-off timer that turns off the heat every 2 minutes but for best results I do recommend restarting it a few times in a row and vaping the entire contents in one session (~8 mins).
Maintenance isn’t hard, just remember to empty and brush out the oven immediately after each use. If you forget to it’s no big deal, because you can clean that ceramic chamber pretty easily using the method I show in my video above.
Flytlab gives you a 10-year warranty on this one which is pretty cool, and they also include a silicone sleeve in the box that fits the vape like a glove. It’s not required because the unit doesn’t get hot on the outside during use, but it’s nice to protect the vape if you’ll be bangin it around.
Overall I’m diggin it and it’s definitely a nice looking, good performing portable vape for $150. The larger oven means this is a good one if you plan on vaping it with another person, or if you just like a lot at once ;)
