The NewVape FlowerPot vaporizer is extremely unique and well-made, I love products like this. It was designed to work with an e-nail controller and a glass rig, and what’s extra cool is that it’s pure convection heating. Bonus: You can vape both flower and concentrates in this thing, very well I may add.
The photo above is the VROD model which I show more images if you keep scrolling, after you check those out watch my new 2019 Weed Eater review video below!
Here are a few more pictures of my VROD setup, and if you keep scrolling you’ll see photos of my previous setups as well:
And here’s my Newvape review video:
VROD Review video transcription:
This is the main bowl that goes into your glass rig. Then you have the VROD head, this is the part that gets hot and generates the heat to vaporize your material, and then that is the carb cap that goes on top.
It is made in the USA of Grade 2 titanium. So let’s take a look.
Let’s see the original FlowerPot I reviewed in late 2016, and this newer one, the VROD, is quite an improvement and progression from the original one. They also sell a ShowerHead model now which is fairly similar. They’ve been hard at work making it even better, stronger, and more robust with better airflow.
All of the parts are machined very intricately, and they are a pleasure to look at as well as a pleasure to use. Now that you’ve seen it let’s check out how it works. The easiest way to use this is the way I’m showing you now. You set the PID or the controller to about 650 degrees, you let the head heat up for a few minutes, you put about ~0.2 grams of flower in the bowl part.
Then you put the head onto the bowl. You take about a 6 to 10 second draw, then take the head off. That is the simplest and most straightforward way to use this vape. However, there are other ways to use it as well.
The FlowerPot is for both flower and concentrates. You can dab wax right on that top piece there which I will show you. The controller or the PID unit is on the right there, that’s where you set the temperature. Then it has the cord coming out attached to the heater with the handle, the heater is the part it gets really hot. And then I have the 18 mm bowl piece in my glass rig.
You should stir your herb every few draws, but if you do you can expect nice even AVB at the end.
Here’s that PID or email controller, it’s a very simple one. You’re basically only going to use the up and down arrows and the power button on the front. It has that 5-pin connector in the back. This is their custom email handle with the hemp cord wrapped around it. The enail coil that they use for the VROD and the ShowerHead is 20 mm, an it comes with a 25 mm Quartz dish for the top.
These are the actual components of the VROD. These are the airflow holes in the bottom and this is the VROD specific carb cap. Now this is a little demonstration of how to set up your bowl piece when you first get it. It comes in three parts, so first you’re going to stick the slide into your glass rig. Then you’re going to take the bowl piece and place it right on top, then screw in the handle and then take a thin tool thin metal tool, put it through that hole and give it a turn so that it’s nice and tight. The bowl should easily and smoothly go in and out of your glass rig as you are using it.
There are a few screen options for the bowl: stainless steel, titanium and double weave titanium. I would try all of them if you can, you might notice the subtle differences between them.
Now in this clip I lowered the temperature on the controller to about 595 and I’m going to use the carb cap on the top, but I still only have flower in the bowl. So when you use the carb cap with flower you can vape it at a lower temperature. Some people like to keep the temperature of the coil as low as possible and that is what vaping with the carb cap allows you to do. Again, I do recommend stirring every few draws to keep it nice and even.
The cool thing I like about the VROD is that it works so well without the carb cap. When I use the ShowerHead, the other version, that one is also excellent but I do find myself having to use the carb cap a lot with flower to get the same amount of vapor. If you plan on vaping concentrates in it at all I would definitely get the carb cap.
Now I’m going to do a twax hit or a double decker, where I’m going to do a dab on the top with flower in the bowl underneath. It’s kind of a unique thing that this vape can do, how well it works vaping both materials at the same time, the flower and the oil, so I do like to do it here and there ;) I would experiment with it if you can but watch out because they’re super strong!
After using concentrates on the top or doing dabs on it, just set it aside and then take a cotton swab and swab it out while it’s still warm, right after you’re done just swab it out and that’ll keep it cleaner longer.
They also offer a silicone carbide dish or SiC dish, it’s cool and it’s the same size just a different material to vape concentrates and instead of quartz or titanium. I like it, I think it might actually be my favorite material to dab from now.
In this clip here I have my temperature kind of high at 650 degrees but it vapes it like a champ. Lots of vapor and the taste is excellent, I would do it again. NewVape also offers glass bowls that you can use instead of the titanium one. They don’t make these but some people like them, they say that it maybe enhances the flavor a little bit. I don’t mind them, I like them too, I just find that they get a little dirty here faster and you can see the buildup in them so I kind of prefer the titanium only because I feel like it matches the kit.
The last few photos here are of their ShowerHead. The other version that’s very similar it just looks a little different.
Overall the NewVape Flowerpot I think is an excellent desktop vaporizer, I highly recommend it. It’s easy to use, super strong vapor, very tasty – you can’t go wrong.
Thanks very much for watching, if you have any questions hit me up on the forum, and stay up!
UPDATE 10/17: NewVape has updated their FlowerPot components and they’re now even better and nicer than the ones I show in my review video.
Check out these new pictures I took below, the first few pics are of their new Shower Head and the other pics are of the standard sized head but with the quartz dish on top:
Hot air is all that heats your herb, and they’re calling it a “twax” vape because you can actually use it to vape both flower and concentrates, even at the same time, which is quite an experience.
NewVape custom manufactures their own products in the USA out of Grade 2 Titanium and medical-grade aluminum, and the precision they adhere to is what impresses me most about them.
As you can see in the pic above, this was designed for use with a glass rig, and they happen to sell the rig I show in my review which works perfectly with the FlowerPot.
You can use any glass piece you want with a standard 14mm or 18mm connection, male or female. They offer two different bowls or “FlowerPots”, a male body and a female body, and each one is universal in that it will work with any 14/18mm rig.
Check out my full video review below, it’s about 5 minutes long and I show a few clips of me using it in there:
It’s a relatively simple concept how it works, and aside from the enail controller box there are no other electronic components.
What you’re paying for with this one is the quality of the materials used and the attention to detail with which it is manufactured – the stuff feels like it’ll last forever.
The enail controller box is not the special part, it’s a pretty generic one that’s nothing fancy but it does the job.
I wouldn’t consider the enail coil itself to be anything special either, which is why you don’t have to use theirs, but what is very cool and unique is the enail handle they make with aluminum and hemp wick.
It’s function is to keep your handle cool and it does a mighty fine job of that, in addition to it looking and feeling great.
Vaporization occurs inside the chamber where the “head” and the “pot” meet. The ONLY non-titanium part of the vapor path is the brass screen at the bottom of the bowl, and as far as my senses can tell this doesn’t affect the flavor or purity of the vapor at all.
In my video I show you exactly how I use it, but basically you pack a thin layer of herb inside the FlowerPot and attach it to your rig, and then when you’re ready to take a draw you pick up the heated head and place it on the pot.
You only keep the head on top of the pot for a few seconds while you draw, and right before you finish pulling you take the heater off and clear the vapor from your rig.
In between draws you need to keep the hot head somewhere, so they make a couple of custom stands to keep it on while it’s hot, one of which is the “FlowerPot Tray Base & Lid” I have that doubles as a storage container for used and unused herb. It has a post labeled HOT on one side and a cleaning spike on the other side for clearing out your bowl (make sure it cools down first, be careful!).
The top piece can function just like an e-nail, so you can technically dab with this too and not even put any flower in it.
Now if you really wanna go crazy you can also vape herb and wax at the same time with this by loading some flower in the pot and then putting the head on top and doing a dab. This is pretty intense, so take it slow.
When vaping flower only it’s a super pure convection experience. The head piece gets so hot that when air gets pulled through those nine holes on top it gets super-heated right before going through your herb.
You’ll need to play around with the temperature settings on the enail controller because even though NewVape recommends starting at 800°F I think you may want to start a little lower to avoid any accidental combustion while you learn how to use it.
When vaping bud only I think 750-800°F is a good range to be in, and when using it with concentrates I like to lower it to around 700°ish.
The higher the temp the faster it’s going to heat your herb and the faster you’ll have to hit it. Temps on the lower end allow you a little more time to take a draw without the risk of overheating.
What I also like about this is the versatility with how much you load at a time. Most vapes have a specific amount of herb you should pack them with to get the best performance from them, but with the FlowerPot you can efficiently and effectively vape as little as 0.05g and as much as 0.5g.
The other great thing about on-demand manual heating is that you can take as few or as many draws in one session as you’d like, and the rest will be there waiting for you whenever you decide to finish it off.
Overall, I’d consider this a true connoisseur’s vape. The focus is squarely on the quality of materials used and the complexity of the vapor produced.
When you factor in the manual heating aspect you have a mighty fine example of a fully-controlled convection vape experience, not to mention that gnarly ability it has to vaporize herb and oil at the same time.
If you had to pick based on cloud production and potency, how do this compare to cloud evo
It looks like he actually ranks this above the evo for this years vapes.
Just bit the bullet, they are shipping it now as we speak… took the Vrod kit, im eager to see this beast in action live, right now im using my mighty, wich is not bad in itself, but it leave me unsatisfied when i rip it throug a bong, i smoked with a Vripmaster when i was younger, and this thing can rip as hell if you use a digital heatgun ! i was looking for something similar, and this is the most cleanest and efficient take on the idea i could find. thanks for the review, its because of you i choose this one, and i’m feeling im not gonna regret it one bit, even if it amount to 600 $ CAD…..
Yup, been looking for the V-ROD for a while.
I’ve been using my showerhead for a few months now, and I really love it.
However, as you pointed, the carb cap is mandatory if you want to generate some vapor.
Also, I find the titanium painful to clean. The silicon must be really nice to use with rosin.
I will probably upgrade my kit in a few months, but I don’t regret my purchase.
These guys are top lads, too.
Hey guys I just posted my new updated review of the FlowerPot VROD setup, their newest model and my personal fave now, check out the video at the top of the page!
I really like your review and am/was all set to buy the Flowerpot setup. I did some further reading and was impressed with the quality of the product and apparent excellent customer service. However, I wanted to know what will appear on my credit card statement. It might be a stupid question but I know they come under ‘Custom Instruments’ and I wanted to know if that is what appears on the statement or ‘NewVape’? So I went online and filled out their form to pose the question. After 5 days with no response, I called their telephone number to which an answer machine picked up. I left a message asking the same question but still no response. I am now having second thoughts. Do I really want to invest $600 in a product if I can’t reach customer service? What if I have a problem with it and need help? At this point my guess is that I would be SOL.
Hey David I’m sorry for the late reply and also sorry to hear this because that’s not like them!
If you haven’t found out yet it shows up on your card as NEW-VAPE
Got it…apreciate the reply. will be ordering soon and useing your coupon code. Double thanks!
Yeah, it August 3 and I cant get thru to Newvape at all. Either thru phone or email. So I bagged purchasing the flowerpot. No way in hell Im spending $700 on a product that doesnt have GREAT customer support. FAIL!
I have this vape and it is the BEST vaporizer I have used EVER!
Hi great reviews, was looking at a mighty but saw a review of this and it looks well good looks kind of on par with a sublimator for the amount of vapour produced. I know the sublimation actually goes straight to gas rather than vapour. Can you still buy the 16mm shower head unit as I only have a 16mm coil. I have looked at their site and it just lists components for a 20mm coil.
Thanks in advance for your reply and keep up the great work. ✌
Hey guys if you have any questions about this one please post them in the Desktop Vaporizers category on the forum.
I just bought a MiniNail after seeing your other review. It was a tough choice but I think I chose right for $272 Black Friday sale on the universal quartz hybrid deep dish.
Received mine in the mail and it did not turn on. Talked to them and they are making me pay for the return shipping. Very disappointed about this device. It seems very cheaply made considering I use my Volcano every day and never have issues. Buyers remorse for sure.
Hey Luke I’m bummed to hear that I’m really sorry man! I’m assuming you’re referring to the e-nail controller box not firing up? Please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your Newvape order# I would like to reimburse you for the shipping cost.
How classy is that! WOW! Just about to pull the trigger on a showehead myself.
Do you prefer this or the Evo, prices not a factor.
Oh man, that’s a tough call… lately I’ve been using my FlowerPot more but I do love both.
Bud, can you review more dry herb/concentrate ‘twax’ style e-nails? I’m looking thru your reviews and there doesn’t seem to be much info or comparisions on what’s on the market. Easy.
Hey man! Love your reviews, you are always my go-to channel whenever I’m looking into new vapes.
How it this unit comparing to the Sublimator? I’ve wanted to get one for a long time but it’s such a hassle to get now. Could this be an appropriate replacement for it? I’d love to get your opinion on that.
Thanks a lot!!!
What is your exact set here. Can you please list all the pieces? This set is exactly what I need! On the website there are no premade sets/kits so I’m rather confused at mm this and male/female stem that etc. Thanks for all your comprehensive reviews, they mean the world!
If i already have an enail do i just need the nut&head attachment and the body attachment
Great video. Looks like a heck of a vape.
Thanks Bruce this thing is killer!
So on gids green earth,,,,what is the price of the whole thing.With part and that part and this part snd that other part. What is the total price? ???????????. Did i im see 120 correctly somewhere? ?????????
Hey Bud, I have a question for you.
Loved the review of this product and I’ve decided to purchase the accessories that make this a twax setup while shopping elsewhere for the non essentials (e-nail controller box, coil, rig etc..)
Being that this is a pure convection vaping experience, is there any definitive guide that compares the temperature that your dry herb will be heated to in relation to the heat of the enail itself? What I mean by that, is if I use a desktop vape (such as a volcano) and set that to 390 F, I can more comfortably assume my herb is heating to 390 F which lets me easily adjust for day and night time usage depending on what effects I’m looking to get, as well as avoiding combustion, unwanted chemicals and carcinogens, etc..
In your review, you set the enail to 750 F, even for dry herb. But since you’re not keeping the heating element on the flower, I’m assuming the herb never actually gets up to 750 F – that’s obviously well above combustion. So is there some way to have an approximate idea of the temperature that the flower is being heated to so that one could know how to adjust the enail temp in a similar fashion and get the desired effects?
Apologies for the long-winded question. Appreciate any advice you can offer.
If you leave herb in the bowl and don’t take a hit, does the herb cook?
If you leave the heater on top of the bowl yes it will roast it, but if you take the head off and put it on the stand you can leave your herb in the bowl and it’ll be totally fine.
This link to buy this Twix to new world vape is not working.
I liked your review of the plenty but another review I read said you need to hold onto the plenty for 3 minutes and that you could not set it doown to heat. Is this true? Otherwise it sounds like the vaporizer for me. I have a pax I hate that I cannot get t to give me more than one or two draws before it has to be heated again. I give up and smoke.
Please let me know re holding the plenty for I need to buy a good one. I also read re arizer extreme q as a possibility but sounds like plenty might be better.
Thanks for your good reviews and videos liked the plenty video.
Judy I have an extreme Q that I’ve had for about 5-6 years now and it has never let me down! I compare it to my buddy’s silver surfer vape all the time.
Pax. What a sad overhyped vape
Well I might agree on Pax 1, but the 3rd gen is a very solid and good unit B GESSO. I use it next to a Volcano and a Mighty so I got some reference I think. I get very long sessions out of it with very little material and the stealth factor is superb! All that with 10 years of warranty seem like a good deal to me ;) Stopped taking my Mighty anywhere.
My best pal owns a Plenty and this thing just melts you :D It needs more bud than a Volcano, but it also hits just a little bit harder in my opinion.So if your looking for a solid desktop unit I highly recommend the Volcano & Plenty, Volc is a bit cooler if you have company, Plenty looks like a construction tool but is the go to unit for every singleplayer :D I tested most vapes on the market, had all the Arizer Units but the ones I always return to are the Storz & Bickel Vapes. (trying New Vape next)
