Atmos RX review 2014 September 17 2014, 0 Comments

The Atmos RX is one of the most popular vape pens for dry herbs on the market today. Here's what you need to know about it:

Vaping with dry herbs

The first thing that you'll need to do before vaping dry herbs with the Atmos RX is to insert the included glass screen insert. This small glass insert creates space between the heating coil and your dry herb, ensuring that none of the herbs are burnt during the heating process. The heating coil heats up the glass screen, which then heats your dry herbs to the point of vaporization. 

Now that you've inserted the glass screen, you're ready to put your herbs into the heating chamber. You'll want to make sure that your herbs are finely ground, and then lightly pack them into the heating chamber. You don't want to pack them too tightly, as a little bit of airflow is optimal for proper vaporization. Different people have different preferences when it comes to the proper temperature for vaporization, but with the Atmos RX generally the best method to heat your herbs is as follows:

1. Hold down the power button for nine seconds

2. Release for three seconds

3. Hold down for another nine seconds

4. Release and press the power button again and inhale

Using this method, most people achieve an extremely high quality of vapor. Your results may vary. If your herbs are burning, hold down the power button for a few seconds less. Every second counts. If you hold it down for 6-8 seconds instead of the full 9, you might get a better vapor quality, depending on what type of herb you're using and your personal preference. Also, make sure to use your packing tool to sift through the heating chamber and mix the herbs, this will prevent you from burning the herbs that are closest to the heating chamber and will improve the taste and quality of the vapor coming our of the Atmos RX vape pen.

Usually, with on lightly packed (3/4 full) heating chamber, you can get at least 5 quality draws before you have to empty it out and put in new herbs. When emptying our the heating chamber, make sure to use the cleaning brush to carefully clean out any remnants from the previous herbs before refilling it. Be careful to not insert the cleaning brush too far, as you could damage the heating coils.

Vaping with oil

While the Atmos RX vaporizer pen has been designed specifically for vaping dry herbs, there is an oil adapter that can be purchased. The oil adapter can be used to vape any of the e-liquids that are designed for e-cigarettes, which is pretty cool because it eliminates the need to buy another vape pen if you want to enjoy vaping e-liquids. 

Charging

You'll get better results from your Atmos RX if you use it on a full charge. Using it to the point where it runs out of battery life tends to give suboptimal vapor quality. The included USB charger can be plugged into a computer or a wall adapter. 

Overall, I give this vape pen a 9/10. If you're looking for a dry herb vaporizer that you can carry around in your pocket, it doesn't get any better than this. The vapor quality rivals that of larger table top vapes that you have to leave at home, except this one can be carried anywhere. Some of the bigger models may have more features, but for what it is you can't go wrong with the Atmos RX dry herb vape pen.  You can buy one here.
