AirVape OM Wax Vaporizer Review
The AirVape OM portable wax vaporizer is one of the smallest, most discreet and compact vape pens for concentrates on the market today, perhaps even the smallest. This unit is about as discreet as you can get, and is small enough to fit comfortably anywhere. It is so tiny that it even comes with a keychain so you can put it on your keys if you’re a serious vape user. It is so small that you might actually spend some time searching for it if you put in your full backpack or purse instead of in a pocket or on a keychain. At under $130 CND, it offers way better vapor production and flavor than your typical cheap wax pen, and is so easy to use, even a first time vape newbie will be able to pick it right up and enjoy. Is the AirVape OM the wax and oil vaporizer for you? Read on to find out more.
Battery on the AirVape OM
The rechargeable battery on this device is a bit weak in comparison to most vapes on the market today, at 350mAh it is about what you’d expect from such a compact unit. You mostly get the convenience of it being so compact and easy to use, this unit isn’t for those who are looking for a vape that they can use several times throughout the day for long sessions, with long-lasting battery life. It is 510-thread and you charge it using a typical USB charger.
Using the AirVape OM
As previously mentioned, this device could be the smallest vape pen on the market today, and weighing in at only 1.6 ounces, it might also be the lightest. To some vape users, these specs are an advantage, to others they aren’t. It all depends on your vaping preferences. To start using the AirVape OM, just press the button five times. It has three different voltage settings of 4.0v, 3.2V, and 2.4v. Red, blue and white lights at the base of the device tell you which setting the unit is at – high, medium, or low, respectively.
Don’t let its compact size fool you, the AirVape OM is made with metal that you’d be hard pressed to find a way to break. The glass stem mouthpiece is prone to breakage if you aren’t careful, but the difference in vaping concentrates with a metal/ glass vape pen or a plastic one is significantly noticeable. The unit fits nicely in the palm of your hand, and the button is responsive when pressed. At the base of the AirVape OM, there is some attractive looking imitation wood that makes it feel nice to handle. Included with the AirVape OM are two cover caps that connect to single use vape cartridges you’d buy at any dispensary.
Vapor Quality of the AirVape OM
The heating element is solid and respectable, made with two quartz coils. Couple that with the glass mouthpieces, and you get a vapor flavor quality that is a vast improvement over your typical plastic vape pens, and comes kind of close to the quality of large vapes. The coils made from quartz crystal delivers super tasty and flavorful hits with clouds are bigger than you might think, especially at the highest temperature setting.
Some users have reported having a bit of trouble keeping the heating element as clean as possible, due to the compact nature of the device. The best way to clean it would be to use cotton swabs dipped in isopropyl alcohol, but there are no cotton swabs in the world that are tiny enough to fit around the coils. We recommend letting heating up the vape for about 30 seconds or so after every session or two. This will help keep the OM from getting caked up with excess residue, and keep your hits as smooth and flavorful as possible. To clean the glass mouthpiece, just use an alcohol dipped swab as well. Let the unit sit out and make sure it’s totally dry before you connect everything back together for another session.
