Litl 1 Review
What you see is what you get with the super compact, affordable Litl 1 vaporizer. The first release from the Litl manufacturer is the smallest and most compact dry herb vaporizer on the market today. At just around $50 Canadian, it’s also one of the most inexpensive. Keep reading our Litl 1 review to determine whether you should spend the small amount of money on it, or if you want something with a bit more features and functionality.

How it works and Ease of Use:
When it comes to operating vapes, it simply does not get any easier than the Litl 1 vaporizer. One button controls one temperature setting. To use it, just remove the mouthpiece, pack your dry herbs, and replace the mouthpiece. Press the power button 5 times, wait 45 seconds. The green light turns solid and the haptic feedback vibrates twice, letting you know you’re ready for a rip. It’s as simple and straightforward as that.
We did find the green light to be a bit bright, especially at nighttime – but we’re nitpicking there. The Litl 1 vaporizer automatically shuts off after 4 minutes of not using it, which is a feature they didn’t have to add for how affordable this little thing is. It vibrates before it shuts off as well, which is nice.
As previously mentioned, there’s only one preset temperature, and that’s 215 degrees Celsius. The adjustable airflow gives you some form of customization and flexibility over how big of a vape rip you take, though. That adjustable airflow will let you decide what size hit you want to take
and how you think it operates at its best.
Heating System and Chamber:
The heating system on the Litl 1 vaporizer is conduction, which is to be expected for a device this affordable. The chamber is made from ceramic and can pack about 0.25 grams of your dry herbs. For as tiny as the Lit 1 is, a quarter of a gram is a good chamber size.
We were rather surprised and impressed with the vapor quality of the Litl 1 vaporizer. The isolated air path and glass mouthpiece definitely helps with that, and most rips we took were pretty flavorful and smooth. Once you get down to the last rip or two, it might get a bit harsh, but that’s minor. For inexpensive vapes, you usually don’t get the glass mouthpiece like you do with the Litl 1, and that definitely helps with the flavor and smoothness.
From such a small device, you shouldn’t expect thick, milky clouds and huge vapor production. But we were pretty happy with the cloud size overall, especially for what it is. We did find a cool little hack that actually helps increase the size of your draws in a pretty big way. If you remove the mouthpiece and unscrew the part underneath, there’s a tiny ceramic airflow restrictor. We realized that once you remove this little piece, and put it on max airflow, your hits can be bigger, better and more satisfying.
The Litl 1 vaporizer has an 850mAh battery that lasts about 20 to 30 minutes per charge. We got about 5 sessions in on one charge, which is pretty good. It takes about 45 minutes to charge completely.
Aesthetics and Manufacturing Quality:
This device is so tiny that it looks like a key fob or a garage door opener. Even though it’s one of the most affordable portable vaporizers you can buy, it’s not made of cheap plastic. It’s made of anodized aluminum, which looks attractive and feels good in your hand. We think this little device looks slick, and actually is a little bit more attractive than other units like it, such as the Utillian 420 or the Pulsar APX.
Portability and Discreetness:
As you probably have guessed by now, the Litl 1 vaporizer is about as portable and discreet as it gets in the vaporizer game. At 3.2 inches in tall, 1 and half inches long and weighing only 73 grams, it’s the smallest portable vaporizer to date. We actually thought that we lost it when it was right there in our pocket, that’s how tiny the Litl 1 is.
What Comes With the Litl1 Vaporizer?
Not much, but that’s to be expected. You get the Litl 1 vaporizer, a USB charging cable and the instructional guide. You probably won’t need to read the instructional guide, but it’s there nonetheless. For the price, and what the unit is, the device and the charging cable are really all you need. You also get a hassle-free 90-day manufacturer warranty.
How to Clean:
To clean the Litl 1, just unscrew the mouthpiece, give the screen and the little gold piece a quick brush and do the same for the chamber. After every few sessions, you should take a Q-tip soaked in alcohol to the glass mouthpiece. Cleaning the Litl 1 vaporizer is as easy as it is to use.
Summary and Comparison:
One temperature setting is all you need for surprisingly solid vapor. The ceramic chamber and glass mouthpiece really add decent flavor and relatively smooth hits to the overall experience with this device. Again, the Litl 1 vaporizer will certainly disappoint experienced vape lovers with high expectations. However, for the price, the build quality, and the decent vapor quality, we would recommend the Litl 1 for all newbies. It’s a great point of entry into the wonderful world of vaporizers. It also makes a great gift!
For its price and limited functionality, there really isn’t much that is exactly like the Litl 1 vaporizer. The closest thing to its size and price is probably the Utillian 420 or the Pulsar APX V2. For a little more, you can add some temperature options, a slightly bigger battery and some accessories when you buy a Utillian 420 or the Puslar APX V2.
