Discretion is a watchword for vaporizer customers. Either they want to use devices for illegal purposes and want to hide their intentions or their intentions are good but they fear anyone who sees them with a vaporizer will think they are vaping on weed.
Either way, it is easy to see why companies design vaporizers that resemble other electronics and manual items (like inhalers, walkie-talkies, and lipstick) and why they make a point of packaging and sending their products discretely. The Atmos Raw vaping pen is one such product.
An Atmos Raw Review
Even as I say that, it was a bit difficult pinning down the Atmos Raw. There were a number of versions, each one resembling a solid pen, but no proprietary website. I was searching all over the place, scanning customer reviews and catalogues. This also meant that trying to establish a price for the starter kit or even a single complete pen is difficult. I arrived at a figure of roughly $70 for a starter kit.
The Atmos Raw Starter Kit
An Atmos Raw starter kit contains a glass screen, USB charger, a wall adapter, packing tool, and a cleaning tool. Customers will also find a rubber mouthpiece, ceramic filter, chamber connector, and a mesh filter.
The importance of a rubber mouthpiece is how it feels between your lips. Pressing on a soft material to inhale feels much better than clamping down on glass or steel. The downside, though, is that rubber sometimes smells and tastes funny, thereby contaminating the aroma of aromatherapy materials.
The Pen Alone
At least one site showed a single pen containing all necessary parts but no chargers or extras like herbs. It cost $30 or so, not including shipping, and came in loads of colors.
One question I arrived at was what to vape: oils or herbs. There appear to be at least two versions so you can do either, yet the starter kit model (not an RX or a Junior) is designed for vaping herbs. If Atmos Raw would build a site of its very own, that would be advantageous to sales and the product’s reputation.
Materials in a Vaporizing Pen
You see the mention of a glass screen and a ceramic filter mentioned above and it might have crossed your mind to wonder why these materials were chosen. E-cig pens might be made with glass tanks, but no other parts are made from glass and definitely nothing ceramic is used. Glass and ceramic are thought to be good conductors of heat, which also retain that heat well without too much loss of temperature over time.
The biggest advantage, however, is that while metal could leave you with a funny taste in your mouth, glass and ceramic create pure tasting vapor. Metal heating elements and mesh would be the culprits in this case, and could also release some toxins into individuals’ lungs.
Thoughts about the Atmos Raw
Reviewers who tried the Atmos Raw Vaporizer shared mixed feelings about it. A kit for the price mentioned above does not cause concern. Not only is $70 affordable and justifiable, but there are assorted prices depending on where you go shopping.
At the time of purchase, you might have to declare your aim to use a vaporizer for aromatherapy products and not marijuana, etc., and the item will be shipped anywhere across the United States. The advantage of finding multiple vendors is that competition keeps prices low.
Just beware: not every vendor supplies or honors a warranty. Replacement pieces are easy to find, including mouthpieces, batteries, and tanks.
If something breaks within a few days, take advantage of your warranty. A few clients reported breakage of small pieces within days, even hours, of receiving and first using their vaporizer pens.
Some consumers, however, said their Atmos Raw appeared to be impressively durable. Maybe they are presenting a difference between small component parts that break or fall out and the overall construction of their product.
Vapor Production or Not
Dense vapor production enriches a person’s experience of vaporizing. When the clouds are thick and white, they smell and look pure. Even bystanders can see you are not smoking by the clean color of the cloud you produce. If it’s white, you’re probably doing your lungs a favor, especially if you used to smoke.
An Atmos Raw creates a fog of vapor, usually white vapor, but a risk has been identified several times, meaning the occurrence is not rare. The makers of Atmos Raw have even tried to rectify the following problem without much success. Some users find their herbs are burned, not vaporized.
The line between burning and vaporizing temperatures is very fine with a few degrees Fahrenheit tipping the scales, but your vaporizer is no longer a vaporizer if the herbs are burning. Your clouds won’t be white either, and you have to wonder about the risks this might indicate as far as overheating, burning internal components, and burning yourself are concerned.
Hassle and Compromise
You might also notice that it takes no time before you are refilling the herbs in your pen. At the expense of long lasting vape sessions you enjoy a small device that is easy to hide away, pass off as a pen, or disguise as an electronic cigarette. A desktop machine would hold loads of herbs, but it would also be too big to put in your pocket. This is one of the smallest models around.
An attractive feature of your pen is the LED light at its tip. This light resembles the glow of embers at the end of an herbal rollup (if they were blue) and it is emitted when you puff. The LED light also indicates when your battery is waning.
Using your Vaporizer
Getting the hang of an Atmos Raw vaporizer will take minutes. Clients can put it together with herbs, turn it on, and start vaping as soon as the device arrives. Charging your battery first is probably a better idea. A battery charged immediately lasts longer than one used out of the box or pack. Within minutes the Atmos Raw is hot enough to vape.
