The New Zealand vaporizer scene is saturated with all manner of portable vapes. As it grows it is only going to get more crowded. Vaporizers aren’t cheap, and whether you’re a novice or a seasoned connoisseur you need to know what you’re spending your money on. To save you hours of exhaustive research we are running a series of blog posts that examine some of the finest vaporizers on the market. This time we’re gonna have a look at the Grizzly Guru vaporizer, one of the most rugged and versatile vaporizers that money can buy on the New Zealand market.
One of, if not the single most important features of a portable vaporizer is its battery life. No matter how good it is, no matter what other gimmicks, bells, and whistles it has; if you can’t bring it anywhere without it dying on you it’s not good. The Grizzly was designed with rugged outdoor pursuits in mind, to be used far from the nearest AC outlet. So that’s why it comes with a powerful lithium ion battery. These batteries will offer you a massive 3 hours of continuous use on a full charge.
Three hours may seem a bit short at first, but the key words are ‘continuous use’. No matter how much you like your herb you’re not going to be spending three whole hours vaping it. Split up into several 10 minute sessions you’ll find that this battery will last you the entire weekend.
High Quality Materials
As the name would suggest the Grizzly Guru is a rugged piece of kit. It is build with high quality material that is more than capable of standing up to the day-to-day rigors of the life of a portable vaporizer. It is build with a compact and sturdy design that makes it tough and portable. It uses high quality ceramics in the construction of its heating chamber and air path so you won’t lose any components to sudden thermal shock.
The Guru has a trick up its sleeve that sets it apart from all of the other dry herb vaporizers on the the market. It comes with a special insert that will allow you to enjoy concentrates and oils. It can even allow you to use e-liquids. This makes it the single most versatile portable vaporizer on the New Zealand market.
This adaptability will allow you to mix up your vaping experience in a whole variety of ways!
The Guru comes with a big, clear LED display that shows you exactly what’s going on inside your vaporizer. Combined with the super-precise digital control system means that you never have to worry about losing control of your vapor ever again!
Most vaporizers are forced to choose between one of two heating systems, either conduction or convection. Conduction is a method that vaporizes herb by putting it in direct contact with the heating element. This is the fastest method of heating your herb as it immediately starts acting upon it. It does have some downsides though, there is a real risk of combustion if you use a conduction heating element incorrectly. Combustion leads to the release of toxins, carcinogens, it can create a nasty burnt taste, and worst of all it wastes perfectly good herb.
Convection works by heating the herb indirectly with a flow of warm air. As the elements heat the air it flows through the compartment, gently and gradually lifting the vapor away from the herb. Convection leads to the thickest vapor and the lowest risk of combustion, but it is the slower of the two methods; sometimes it can take several minutes to reach the requisite temperature.
The guru uses a hybrid heating system which takes the best of both worlds and fuses them into one amazing heating system. When you’re using the guru you’ll find that the heat up time is miniscule and that the vapor is thick and tasty. The Guru is slightly larger than the average portable vape but that just means that it had to make more room for quality.
