Meet the Phedor Portable Vaporizer from Wicked Roots. This little handheld unit has been one of the top selling vaporizers on the market over the past couple years. It is a very simple design: basically just an exposed ceramic heating element that heats up when the unit is plugged in. To vaporize tobacco or other herbs, you hold the Phedor close to the material and then inhale, which causes hot air to move through and release active ingredients. We at VapeNow.com hope you find this review helpful and informative.
Pros & ConsPros:
Devices that are traditionally used for smoking can essentially be transformed into vaporizers by using a Phedor for the heat source instead of fire. Just make sure you don't touch the vaporizer to the tobacco -- if contact is made, the Phedor's heating element will be hot enough to burn the tobacco. Although this is to be avoided while vaporizing, we do also recommend the Phedor as a butaneless lighter. It's healthier than inhaling butane, even if you are still smoking, which we never endorse. All in all this tiny unit is similar the magic wand that it looks like, turning smoking devices into servicable vaporizers. We recommend it.
The Phedor unit is all one piece with a detachable 6-foot cord and plug. The white ceramic heating element sticks out 1.5” from the end of the black aluminum casing. The black portion of the Phedor vaporizer measures .75” x 1.25” x 3” and never gets hot or warm. Once the user plugs the unit into the wall the ceramic part of the vaporizer will begin to heat until it is glowing red-hot. This takes about 1 minute.
Cleaning:From time to time the ceramic portion of the Phedor will need cleaning. Simply make sure the unit is cool and wipe it down with a paper towel. DO NOT USE A WET PAPER TOWEL as this could damage the heating element.
That's all for the Phedor. Next up will be the VaporCannon - 3G. Thanks for reading.
