Another common comparison the VaporBLUNT faces is with the Wispr by Iolite. Although they operate almost completely different, they are both portable vaporizers and that is enough for everyone to compare the two. Let’s take a look at how they do measure up against each other in a couple different categories.
The VaporBLUNT remains one of the stand outs when it comes to vapor quality amongst portable vaporizers. The huge draws you can get from the VaporBLUNT often confuse me because I think I’m using a huge table top vaporizer, not a small portable one. This is of course a good thing.
The Wispr vape actually has pretty good vapor quality, even considering it is butane powered. The only problem is it really takes the Wispr a while to get going and even when it is operating at full potential, the draws are a little more airy than I would prefer.
The VaporBLUNT vaporizer is a little big. It isn’t huge, but it also isn’t quite pocket size. I think the VB is best to be used around your house / yard rather than if you were going hiking or any other outdoor activity like that.
The Wispr’s portability is pretty decent. I’m not a fan of the squared design all that much because although it fits in your pocket the square shape makes it a little uncomfortable. Where the Wispr really shines though is how it can work under extreme conditions, high altitudes especially. The Wispr will fire up and vaporize pretty much anywhere and its small size gives it an advantage over the VaporBLUNT.
The VaporBLUNT vape uses a lithium-ion rechargeable battery to power it’s heating element. The battery lasts through about an hour and a half of continuous operation and takes just about as long to reach a full charge. The battery also helps the heater reach your target temperature in under a minute, making it one of the fastest heating vapes available, period.
The butane powered Wispr is at a distinct disadvantage here distinctly because of the butane operation. Not only is butane a pain to find, good 5x refined kinds anyway, but it is also a hassle to refill even when you do have it. Over filling it is really easy and then you have to wait 5 minutes before you can even turn it on as it vents the extra butane.
Accessories and Advanced Use
The VaporBLUNT has pretty much just one accessory and that is the flavored mouthpieces. These don’t change the flavor of your vapor, but they do leave a nice little after taste on your lips. As far as advanced use I really can’t rave enough about the VB’s stir tool cap. It becomes like second nature to twist the cap while you are using it and constantly stirring your material like that really gives you every last bit out of your material.
The Wispr by Iolite also has only one accessory, the Optimizer. This small attachment drops into the herb chamber to help vaporize your material more evenly and also helps the Wispr heat up faster. What I don’t understand is why this isn’t standard with the Wispr? Especially since the optimizer was originally created to help enhance the Iolite. So the manufacturer already knew this would be something everyone would want. As far as advanced use you can really only consider the fact that it works in extreme conditions as an advanced use. There’s nothing else to it that really stands out.
To me the VaporBLUNT is the clear winner. The Wispr may be the more portable of the two, but in regards to quality, effect, and overall experience the VB is better.
