The V-Tower is a stationary vaporizer from the Canadian company Arizer Tech, widely regarded as one of the most optimal in relation to quality and price. This robustly constructed device delivers highly satisfactory inhalations while remaining within three zeros in terms of cost. The steam produced by the V-Tower is of very high quality and its enormous efficiency allows to effectively reduce herbal expenses. We highly recommend it to people who are considering buying a good stationary vaporizer, but do not want to invest four-digit amounts in it (such as Volcano vaporizers).
In order to make the device as durable and efficient as possible, its manufacturers have opted for a vertical design and used the highest quality components. The V-Tower has a two-layer stainless steel body with a chrome finish, which protects against the heat generated during vaporization – the device can then be freely touched. The chamber inside the vaporizer is covered with non-toxic insulation that separates the heating element from the material. Inhalation is carried out by means of a silicone hose made of non-toxic material which is completely safe for health and in no way spoils the taste of steam produced by the vaporizer. The tube rotates 360 degrees around the V-Tower so that it can be easily transferred during group sessions. The mouthpiece is made of heat-resistant glass and can be replaced.
At its price, the V-Tower produces a stunning quality steam. It also offers a very wide temperature range, between 40 and 260 degrees Celsius, as well as its precise adjustment to 1 degree to bring out the taste nuances of the vaporised herbs. However, we advise against the use of temperatures higher than 230 degrees, as these can lead to the ignition of herbs. Unfortunately, the glass heating chamber of the V-Tower has to be dried out with a large amount of at least 0.4g. As long as this is not a problem in social situations, it can be a disadvantage when inhaling one person if we do not want to use so many herbs. Fortunately, there is an alternative inhalation method for this equipment, the so-called elbow-pack. Instead of a glass heating chamber located inside the appliance, the dried product is put into a sieve, which is located in a glass knee at the end of a silicone hose. This solution requires only 0.1g of herbs, which makes the V-Tower very economical and can be successfully recommended for single-person inhalation. However, it does not have a balloon inhalation function available in Extreme Q 6.0, another vaporizer by Arizer Tech.
The V-Tower heater heats up relatively soon – it takes about 2 minutes to reach the set temperature. However, it is recommended to wait until the glass elements of the device are also warmed up (10-15 minutes) so that they cannot cool the air flowing through it before it reaches dryness and thus reduce the vaporization efficiency. The device has a clear LCD screen with blue lettering for easy temperature adjustment. It also has a built-in automatic shutdown function that can be set for 2 or 4 hours. It is not suitable for vaporization of tobacco and tobacco products.
