The world of portable vaporizers is full of copycats, but the Iolite 2.0 stands out for both its unique design and unusual method of operation. This battery-free dry herb vaporizer skips the complicated electronics and long charging times in favour of a tried and true throwback method: butane heating, which allows for extended vaping sessions and an overall experience unlike most of its competitors.
Featuring an ergonomic build and an extra-large herb chamber, this Iolite vaporizer is user-friendly and easy to maintain, thanks to the lack of moving parts and sensitive components. It’s also sturdy and reliable, making it a great option for those who like vaping on the go (and are occasionally prone to clumsiness). Plus, its affordable price tag makes it perfect for people who are interested in trying a new style of vaping without breaking the bank.
Iolite 2.0 Key Features
Iolite portable vaporizers are relatively unknown to the casual vaper, but models like the 2.0 offer a range of features you won’t find in other devices. Here are a handful of the most notable ones:
The Iolite 2.0 features a rugged plastic housing with an oblong shape, which has led many to nickname it ‘the walkie-talkie vaporizer.’ It’s extremely small, even for a portable vaporizer, and the combination of curves and ridging means it fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. On the inside, you’ll find a large stainless steel oven chamber that’s easy to clean. The Iolite 2.0 is available in a wide variety of colours, including black, red, purple, and blue.
2. Battery-Free Operation
The Iolite 2.0 generates its heat from a butane heater (more on that in a second) instead of the batteries used in most modern vaporizers. You’ll never need to wait around for your device to charge, since it can be refilled with standard butane gas in a matter of seconds.
3. Catalytic Heater
The patented flameless heater of the Iolite 2.0 is contained within the device, so you won’t need a lighter or other external heat source to operate your device. Whilst this heating method is a bit of a throwback, it also offers greater flexibility for those who might want to vape in environments where it’s difficult to access electricity (for example, during long camping trips).
4. Bi Metal Thermostat
Although the Iolite 2.0 doesn’t offer adjustable temperatures, it does feature a high quality bi metal thermostat that ensures your dry herb is vaporized at the ideal temperature of 190° C. It only takes around 45 seconds for the device to heat up.
5. Large Herb Chamber
The Iolite 2.0 can handle up to 0.5 g of dry herb in a single bowl, making it ideal for extended group sessions among friends. Packing the herb loosely is recommended for optimal vapour quality, and smaller amounts can be loaded for microdosing or quick solo sessions.
Who Should Buy the Iolite 2.0 UK?
The Iolite 2.0 is a bit of a novelty item, and it might not fit the needs of every casual vaper. However, those who can look past the slight taste of butane in the vapour and the lack of adjustable temperature settings will find it to be reliable and enjoyable to use. It’s especially useful for:
People who want a battery-free vape. Running out of juice is nobody’s favourite part of vaping, and with the Iolite 2.0, you’ll never have to worry about finding a power outlet again.
People who love dry herb. The Iolite 2.0 was designed with flower-lovers in mind. If you’re a fan of concentrates you’ll probably want to try a different device, but if ground herb is your go-to material, this will meet all your needs.
People who appreciate a unique vape design. There aren’t many vapes that look like the Iolite 2.0, and people who enjoy marching to the beat of their own stylistic drummer will get a kick out of the unique shape and feel.
