Zeus Smite Plus Review
The Zeus Smite Plus is a portable vaporizer from a Canadian company and designed for use with dry herb. An upgrade over the highly popular original model, the Smite Plus can compete with higher end vaporizers, but at a lower cost. It is considered to be one of the most durable and long-lasting portable vaporizers on the market today. Does the Zeus Smite Plus live up to its Godly name? Read on and you can decide for yourself.
Battery on the Zeus Smite Plus
The Zeus Smite Plus uses an 18650 battery made from lithium ion that lasts most users about two hours of total usage. Most vape experts and enthusiasts agree that the Smite Plus features one of the best batteries on a portable vaporizer that money can buy. For a device this compact and powerful, the battery life is excellent. The Zeus Smite Plus features an LED display that indicates the amount of battery life your device has left. There are 4 bars on the display – one for each quarter of life the battery has left. The Smite Plus also comes equipped with an automatic shut off feature that helps to preserve the battery.
Using the Zeus Smite Plus
The Zeus Smite Plus comes equipped with a ceramic heating chamber. Loading the bowl is a no-brainer, and the vaporization of your dry herbs is distributed nicely. This unit comes with an impressive range of precise temperature flexibility, from 40°C/104°F up to 222°C/432°F. We recommend that most vape users stay in the range of 190°C/374°F to 210°C/410°F, as this seems to be optimal for most users.
To use the Zeus Smite Plus, all you do is take the mouthpiece off, and uncover the bowl to pack your herbs. The glass mouthpiece fits nicely inside of the device, which means it is protected from breakage when you aren’t using it. Then reattach the mouthpiece, and hit the power button five times to start it up. The LED on the unit will display the phrase ‘summoning smite’, which we thought was pretty cool. Once it’s on, just use the temperature up and down buttons until you reach your desired setting, and the Smite Plus automatically heats up. As soon as the ‘actual’ and ‘set’ temperature displays are the same on the LED screen, you’re ready for tasty vape rip. The Smite Plus has a pretty fast heat up time as well.
When using the Smite Plus portable vaporizes, you will have little issue with being discreet. The units are 4 inches long, 2.4 inches wide, and 0.9 inches in thickness. It weighs only 0.45 pounds. The Smite Plus is all black so it looks slick, and it is compact, fitting nicely in most pockets. The all black Smite Plus is made from aluminum that is anodized, which increases the durability of the units and also makes it better able to resist decay and corrosion, increasing its longevity. Most Smite Plus users tell us that they have dropped the unit several times and it hasn’t broken. You won’t have to clean the unit as much as many other vapes, which also adds to its value.
Vapor Quality on the Zeus Smite Plus
The vapor quality on the Zeus Smite Plus is excellent due to its precise and customizable temperature settings. The flavor is even further improved even further when you use the mouthpiece made from glass. The mouthpiece made from silicone is also pretty good, because its design resists heat, which keeps harshness relatively low and flavors pure even at the highest temperature. The ceramic heating chamber is efficient as well, which helps add to the high quality vapor of the Zeus Smite Plus.
To make your vapor rips even more deliciously satisfying, you can opt to use the Zeus Iceborn along with your Smite Plus. This device is even less harsh on your throat, adding another layer of cooling and smoothness. A lot of filter systems use water, but the Iceborn is a cut above those devices – allowing you to comfortably take even large vape inhales.
