    An in depth look at the Kandypens Gravity

    Kandypens Gravity Wax Pen

    Kandypens Gravity Uk

    One of the newest wax pens to come from the Santa Barbara, USA based company, the Kandypens Gravity has the kind of sturdy quality and great performance to be expected from the guys that brought us their original flagship, the Kandypens Galaxy which is still highly considered to be one of the best wax pens on the market. Constantly pushing the boundaries of vape design, the team from Santa Barbara have got together a vape pen with the much sort after donut atomizer as well as a few other great features, so let’s take a look.

     

    BUILD QUALITY AND DESIGN

     

    If you are in the market for a Ninja’s wax pen, then you will certainly like the Kandypens Gravity. The main body is finished with a stylish and very subtle sandblasted black finish, topped off with a gloss black mouthpiece keeping its elegance of design while holding a low-key discreet appearance. The wax pen itself is a solid unit very similar in construction to the galaxy.

    TEMPERATURE SETTINGS AND HEATING

     

    The Kandypens Gravity has four temperature settings (300°F, 350°F, 390°F, 430°F), each of these settings are indicated by a different colour LED light illumination, these are easily cycled through by clicking the power button quickly three times per temperature change. Most wax pens to date tend to come with one or three temperature setting so it’s a plus that kandypens have given the gravity one extra setting to use.

    The Kandypens Gravity comes with two different style atomizers to choose from, a deep, wick-less quartz crystal atomizer and a coil-less atomizer with a ceramic dish also known as a “Donut”.

    the ceramic dish chamber or Donut is designed with flavour and efficiency in mind, Heat is more evenly dispersed contributing to less wastage of your concentrates compared to its coiled counterparts, although you won’t manage to get the same amount of vapor production with the Donut design, so it’s a bit of a trade off with the choice of tastier vapor or bigger clouds.

    The wickless quartz chamber is favourite for many concentrate vapers out there, giving the user some nice fat clouds with reasonable flavoured vapor quality. The quartz rods do a fine job absorbing and distributing the heat and perform admirably.

     PERFORMANCE

     

    The Gravity is capable of producing some flavoursome tasty vapor, very similar to the Kandypens Galaxy with the added ability of an extra temp setting and the choice of using the desirable donut chamber depending on user preference.

     

    BATTERY LIFE AND CHARGING

     

    The battery is a lithium-ion with a capacity of 650MaH giving you between a good day to two days’ use depending on your usage. Charging is done via USB and takes roughly two hours to reach full capacity.

     

    WARRANTY

     

    The Battery on the Kandypens Gravity has a lifetime warranty.

     

    OVERALL

     

    The Kandypens Gravity is a good performer similar to the Galaxy with the additional temp setting and Donut atomizer, its simple to use and a great choice for beginners as well as seasoned vapers.

    The Vaporizer UK Scene

    The Vaporizer UK Scene

    Vaporizer UK

    Vaporizer UK, with the E-Cig scene exploding here and abroad it seems a lot of folks are changing their ways and giving up that nasty old habit of smoking and going for a healthier option. In fact, even the younger generation seem to be going straight for a vaporizer and by-passing the tobacco industry altogether. Gone seem to be the days that smoking was the cool thing to do.
    The Dry Herb Vaporizer UK Scene is Growing
    It isn’t just the E-Cigs that are rising in popularity and trend status, the dry vaporizer is as well. A lot of the growth for the dry herb vaporizer industry I suspect comes from the United States and their slow and steady state by state legalisation of the use of Cannabis. Since this began in Colorado, the amount of dry herb vaporizer companies has grown substantially with the majority of them based in America and Canada. While I suspect, there are still a larger majority still preferring to skin up or hit the bong, I believe the tide is slowly turning with a slow and steady amount of folks deciding to take a healthier path and at least try out a dry herb vaporizer with many sticking to using it as the main source of medicating with the herbal aroma of choice. Vaping is undeniably different from smoking and it does take a little while to adjust to the new way of consuming your herbal but once the learning curve is passed and you feel your lungs loosen up and cardio improve it is undoubtedly the way forward. The dry herb vaporizer UK scene is definitely growing with more and more shops opening every day selling these beauties, it just proves there is a demand for vaporizer UK wide. Now I believe the first known herbal vaporizers were first used (as far as the historians know) by the Egyptians in and around 5BC pre-heating stones placed around their herb of choice to produce the good old vapor, and then eagle bill and his friends re-lit this fire in the early nineties with his glass pipe and the rest they say was history, with fancy and fancier dry herb vaporizers getting released more and more often. Do you think this is a fad that will soon end or is the vaporizer UK scene here to stay and make our country a little healthier, as a person who cherishes my fitness I for one hope it stays strong!

    Boundless CF Vaporizer vs Volcano Crafty Vaporizer

    Boundless CF Vaporizer vs Volcano Crafty Vaporizer

    Boundless CF Vaporizer vs Volcano Crafty Vaporizer

    Following up from my last “vs comparison” The CFX vs The Mighty, I am now pitting the Boundless CF vaporizer against the older and much loved Volcano Crafty vaporizer. The CF is the smaller vape equivalent of the CFX with much of the same design and functionality but in a smaller body and few less features, The Crafty like the CF is also a smaller version of its bigger brother, the Mighty. In the previous comparison comparing the Boundless CFX vaporizer against the Volcano Mighty, the result was very close, making it a difficult decision on picking a winner. The Boundless CFX vaporizer smashed its rival on Size, Features, Design and price, but the Volcano Mighty won out with its better performance. So, let us see how the little brothers of these two fare up against each other.
    In this comparison, I will compare the features of the two against each other, what one has got and the other hasn’t, what materials have been used in the construction and of course how they perform.

     

    BUILD QUALITY AND DESIGN


    The Boundless CF vaporizer is made from plastic and coated with soft ribbed rubber coating that provides a good grip and nice to the touch. It feels and looks well put together and sturdy, it has five blue LED light sup the side to indicate your current temperature and one on/off/temperature button. The vape is finished in black.
    The Volcano Crafty vaporizer is also made from plastic with a partly ribbed design on one side for grip it also feels and looks well made. The Crafty has been around for a while now and while being made of plastic has a good reputation for being a sturdy vape, with a rubberized orange power/temperature button and light indicator on the front.

    Verdict
    It’s a draw both units look great and are well built.

     

    SIZE AND WEIGHT


    The Boundless CF vaporizer size is 10.1cm x 6cm x 3cm, weighing 142 grams.
    The Volcano Crafty vaporizer size is 10.9cm x 5.6cm x 3.3cm, weighing 136 grams.

    Verdict
    The winner is the Volcano Crafty vaporizer, but there is so little between the two of them to hardly call it a clear lead. They are both pocket friendly and almost identical in size and weight.

     

    TEMPERATURE SETTINGS AND HEATING


    The Boundless CF vaporizer the Boundless CF comes programmed with 5 pre-set temperature settings (355F, 370F, 385F, 400F, 415F.) It uses a mixture of conduction and convection to heat its large ceramic chamber (will hold up to 0.5 grams), which is capable of reaching your desired heat setting in as little as 20 seconds. Oh, and I nearly forgot to mention that it can vape dry herbs and concentrates using the wax canister that comes provided.
    The Volcano Crafty vaporizer comes with two prefixed temperature settings, set at 356F and a Boost mode set at 383F. However, these two temperatures can be precisely adjusted from 104F to 410F degrees Fahrenheit via the smartphone application that is freely available. The Crafty also use a mixture of Conduction and convection and has a ceramic chamber that can hold up to 0.3 grams and can reach its desired temperature in around 90 seconds. The Crafty also has the ability to vape dry herbs and concentrates using the gauze pad provided.


    Verdict
    Again, these two are extremely similar in this category but I am giving it to the Boundless CF vaporizer purely on the fact that its heat up time is considerably faster.

     

    PERFORMANCE

    The Boundless CF vaporizer performs almost identical to the CFX giving well flavoured vapor and some reasonable clouds at higher temperatures, but does suffer from a little draw resistance.
    The Volcano Crafty vaporizer has outstanding performance, the draw resistance is pretty much non-existent and the Crafty will produce a large amount of tasty, visible vapor constantly throughout your session.


    Verdict
    Although the Boundless CF vaporizer is no slouch in this category, the Volcano Crafty vaporizer simply out-performs it with its vapor quality and draw resistance.

     

    BATTERY LIFE AND CHARGING

    The Boundless CF vaporizer has one non-removable, internal lithium-ion battery with a 1300MaH capacity. This should give the user 10+ good sessions and the unit will fully charge via USB in around 2 hours.
    The Volcano Crafty vaporizer also has one no-removable, internal lithium-ion battery with a 2700MaH capacity. This should give the user 5+ good sessions and the unit will fully charge via USB which takes around 2 hours to fully charge.


    Verdict
    Even though the Volcano Crafty vaporizer appears to hold a much more powerful battery, the Boundless CF vaporizer manages to out-perform it with its amount of sessions.

     

    ADDITIONAL FEATURES

    The Boundless CF vaporizer has a Stealth mode and an auto shut off.
    The Volcano Crafty vaporizer has an auto shut off, vibration alerts and great smartphone app.


    Verdict
    The Volcano Crafty clearly wins this round, as the smartphone app has a few customisable features including the capability of dimming the LED light making it also a stealth vape if you desire.

     

    WARRANTY


    Both Vaporizers come with a two-year warranty.

    Verdict

    They both have two years’ warranty so it’s a draw.

     

    OVERALL

    Once again Volcano comes out on top with a clear winner this time, the Volcano Crafty vaporizer is definitely superior to the Boundless CF vaporizer however if you are on a budget the CF isn’t a bad choice at all costing £70 less than the Crafty.

    Boundless CFX Vaporizer VS Volcano Mighty Vaporizer

    Boundless CFX Vaporizer VS Volcano Mighty Vaporizer

    Boundless CFX Vaporizer VS Volcano Mighty Vaporizer

    Boundless CFX vaporizer VS Volcano Mighty vaporizer

    The Boundless CFX vaporizer and the Volcano Mighty vaporizer are often compared due to there almost identical features, The Volcano mighty was first released in late 2015 and was the pinnacle of portable vaporizers in its time. A lot has changed since with technology getting better by the day. Have years of technology advancements effected the Mighty and have the newer portable vaporizers made this a dinosaur in comparison. The Boundless CFX vaporizer is a doppelganger of the mighty, but is from the newer breed of portable vaporizers so I thought a comparison was in order to see how the two compare against each other. The Volcano Mighty still holds its weight in the vape market selling for nearly twice the price of the Boundless CFX, so let’s see how this new kid on the block fares against the OG of portable vaporizers.

    In this comparison, I will compare the features of the two against each other, what one has got and the other hasn’t, what materials have been used in the construction and of course how they perform.

    Build Quality and Design

    Both vaporizers are made from plastic and both vaporizers feel sturdy with no rattles or shakes, the buttons feel strong enough to take some abuse and are similarly placed on both vapes.

    The boundless CFX vaporizer has been coated in a soft to touch rubber that has an added ribbed design providing a good grip and feels nice in the hand, finished in a matte black colour and gloss black mouthpiece with a large 1.7 inch crisp and clear OLED display on the side of the unit giving the user all the information needed.

    The Volcano Mighty has a hard-plastic smooth outside exterior with a ribbed inner it is finished in matte black completely with a 1 inch LED screen located on side also giving you the info needed for your vaporizer.

     Verdict

    The Boundless CFX is the clear winner here, it is much more pleasing to the eye and the OLED screen is a generation ahead of the Mighty vaporizer’s equivalent LED version.

    Size and Weight

    • The Boundless CFX vaporizer size is 12.5cm x 6.5cm x 3cm, weighing 207 grams.
    • The Volcano Mighty vaporizer size is 14cm x 8cm x 3cm, weighing 230 grams.

    Verdict

    When it comes to a portable vaporizer size is important, however both these Vaporizers are in my opinion too large to carry in your pocket and would probably end up in a bag for transportation anyway, but when it comes to weight, and you end up holding the vape a lot this can be a deciding factor. Looking at the stats, the Boundless CFX is the clear winner.

    Temperature settings and Heating

    Both vape units have a precise adjustable temperature function being able to set your vaporizer from similar temperature ranges (Mighty - 104°F to 410°F, CFX - 100°F to 430°F) but when it comes down to heat up times the Boundless CFX Vaporizer is clearly in the lead reaching your desired temperature within 25-30 seconds, while the Volcano Mighty vaporizer is playing catch up taking twice the amount of time at 60-90 seconds. They both use a mixture of convection and conduction and both have a memory function to remember your last used setting.

    Verdict

    Both of these portable vapes are very much the same in this category, but once again the Boundless CFX vaporizer has the edge with its heat up time being considerably faster than the Volcano Mighty vaporizer.

    Performance

    The two vaporizers are very similar when it comes to how they operate, they both hold the same characteristics of chamber design, isolated airpath and straw mouth-piece, however the CFX’s chamber is much bigger compared to the Mighty holding easily double the amount. They are both able to vape dry herbs and concentrates although the Volcano Mighty vaporizer performs its task slightly better with little to no draw resistance present compared to the Boundless CFX vaporizer that suffers from some slight draw resistance, and the Mighty produces cooler and slightly smoother vapor.

    Verdict

    This round goes to the Volcano Mighty vaporizer with the fact the draw is easier going than that of the Boundless CFX vaporizer and the vapor just comes through smoother despite having similar design characteristics.

    Battery life and charging

    • The Boundless CFX vaporizer holds two non-replaceable, rechargeable Li-Ion batteries totalling 2500mAh this will give the user an average of 10-15 sessions per full charge. You have the option of charging your CFX by USB or DC Outlet.
    • The Volcano Mighty vaporizer also holds two non-replaceable Li-Ion batteries totalling 2600mAh this will give the user an average of 8-10 sessions per full charge. The Mighty uses a DC outlet for charging with no option for USB.

    Verdict

    This round goes to the Boundless CFX vaporizer for its extra amount of sessions and the ability to be recharged via USB.

    Additional features

    • The CFX has the following additional features: Auto Shut Off Timer (shown on the OLED display), Vibration Alerts, Temperature Memory and a Battery Indicator (shown on the OLED display)
    • The Mighty has the following additional features: Auto Shut Off, Temperature Memory and a Battery Indicator (Shown on the LCD display.)

    Verdict

    There is not much in this but The Boundless CFX pulls through as the winner just because it has the one extra feature over The Mighty.

    Warranty

    Both Vaporizers come with a two-year warranty.

    Verdict

    They both have two years’ warranty so it’s a draw.

    Overall

    Let’s face it the key to a good vaporizer is really based on its performance and despite all of the winning traits the Boundless CFX vaporizer has it just doesn’t perform as good as the Volcano Mighty vaporizer, so if money is no Issue the Mighty is surely the obvious choice. However, the CFX is considerably cheaper and if you are on a budget, the CFX is by no means a bad choice. Its full of features and even though it lacks on its performance compared to the Mighty it’s a good vaporizer that is well worth its price tag.
