The Orbit is for definitive Vapers, the ones who know what they like and don’t want a device that delivers what it promises. In short, this VaporFi Orbit review determined that it does exactly what it is suppose to do; vaporize loose leaf herbs.
VaporFi Orbit Review
The VaporFi Orbit is a dry herb vaporizer that packs a punch.
That’s right; while e-liquid has been all the rage, and now oils are a growing trend, the new VaporFi Orbit just does dry leaf, including fine-leaf tobacco or other herbal products that only certain states allow. No politics here, just a review of a great new product that does one thing very well.
The Orbit is sleek and compact, making it easy to carry anywhere, yet it has a powerful 2200 mAh rechargeable battery. The heating chamber has 1.7 mL capacity, and there’s a choice between black or red-and-black bodies. The vaporizer kit comes with five replacement mesh filters (plus one already installed), five silicone mouthpieces, a USB recharging cable, a cleaning brush and a user’s manual. The wall adapter is sold separately.
The VaporFi Orbit is currently priced at $99.99.
Orbit Basic Operation
Pop off the plastic mouthpiece with your thumb and fill the chamber about 75-percent full with ground leaf product. Tamp it a little, but don’t pack it tightly. Replace the mouthpiece, and then rapidly click the power button five times to turn on the unit. Once it heats, you can begin vaping without holding any buttons; slow, even draws create the best experience. The unit will shut off automatically after 10 idle minutes, or you can quickly press the power button five times for manual shutdown.
Note: Never fill or clean the chamber while the unit is on or while it’s charging.
Heat Settings and Warm-up Time
The Orbit lets you choose from three separate heat levels. To change the setting, hold down the power button for 3-5 continuous seconds. A small LED indicator below the power button shows the levels with different colors, and the power button itself changes color when it’s ready.
- Red: Heats to 360 F in about 60 seconds.
- Green: Heats to 380 F in about 90 seconds.
- Blue: Heats to 420 F in about 120 seconds. The mouthpiece can get hot with this setting, so be sure to slip on one of the silicone covers to avoid discomfort or injury.
Note: Heating times measure from when you first turn on the device.
What’s in the kit:
- 1 2200 mAh rechargeable battery
- 1 USB Charging Cable. A wall adapter is sold separately.
- 1 Cleaning Brush
- 5 Mesh Filters
- 5 Silicone Mouthpiece Covers
- 1 User Manual
The VaporFi Orbit heats your leaf product to the point of vaporization without combustion, creating a smoother experience than traditional smoking. The unit is easy to operate, is portable and it looks good. Best of all, it has both a large heating chamber and a powerful battery for a satisfying and long-lasting vaping experience.
On the downside, VaporFi recommends cleaning the chamber after every use and changing the mesh filter after every five uses, which could become annoying. Also, some users might always need silicone tips, which, combined with replacement filters, sets up regular supply purchases. Finally, there is no battery strength meter. If the battery dips down below a certain level, the hottest setting (blue) may not be achieved. It would be nice if the user knew how much battery life was left before packing a hit.
Still, there’s a lot to like, and hopefully this VaporFi Orbit review has helped you make an informed decision.
