The Best Hybrid Vaporizer Review Of 2016 | Flowermate V5.0S Mini Pro

Vaping has taken the nation by storm. We are going to review the best hybrid vaporizer of 2016. Did you know that vaping shops and lounges exist? These shops equal about one-third of the whole vape industry. There are already more than 3,500 vape shops across the nation. (Source) The reason most people switch from cigarettes to vapor cigarettes is the fact that they think the e-liquid or "juice" is a healthier form of ingesting their nicotine than directly burning reconstituted tobacco. Once someone has started to vape, the allure of the unending variety of flavors keeps them enjoying their hobby day after day.

For those who enjoy both nicotine and marijuana there exists what is known as a "hybrid vaporizer."
The hybrid vape pen will be a device that allows you to vape juice and concentrates, as well as dry herb. We have done a few vape reviews here on the 420 shack, and there exists a ton of hybrid vaporizer reviews on the net. The one main problem that all these hybrid vaporizer reviews agree on is that after sometime the ceramic heating chamber gets too dirty and the effectiveness of their portable hybrid vape pen wears off.

The Flowermate V5.0S Mini Pro is the hybrid vape we will be reviewing today. This vape has current industry standards when it comes to it's base technology but it has a few special characteristics that set it above the rest of the vapes I've tried this year.

Flowermate Hybrid Vaporizer Review

It's features include:
  • 1000MaH battery
  • Fully adjustable OLED Display
  • Temperature range 104F- 446F
  • USB charging
  • Non-combustion ceramic heating chamber
  • Adjustable air flow
  • Fully isolated air path
  • USB power bank for your phone
  • Auto-shut off 
  • Can be used portable or on 14/18 male/female glass rig 
  • Cartridge based system even for dry-herb

Let's talk about some of these features. The first of which is the cartridge system. This comes with 2 cartridges, the first you can fill with dry herb, and the second you can fill with "juice" or cannabis concentrates. (We have a few recipes for making concentrates on the 420 shack, but our shatter recipe will provide you with the right kind of oil that will work in the Flowermate V5.0S Mini Pro.) The cartridges are important because unlike a normal dry herb vape where your weed touches the ceramic walls and causes combustion, the cartridges prevent burning of the weed and also allow a perfect even flow of air around the weed.

The second feature I want to touch on is the non-combustion chamber. I had the Flowermate mini pro turned to max at 446F with no cartridge inside. I filled the heating chamber to the top and attempted to burn my weed. I was unsuccessful. This is the first and only hybrid vaporizer review where I can safely say that I haven't burned my weed. You are not getting an electronic device that smokes your weed. You will vaporize your weed every time. For those with health issues, this feature alone becomes the most important. Also, the non-combustion chamber sits at the top of the fully isolated air path. At the bottom of the air path is an adjustable plate that can you slide to open or close the air hole.

The third feature that sets the Flowermate V5.0S Mini Pro above the competition is that it is also a power bank for your phone. You don't need to worry about an outlet when you're out on the town. Just use your Flowermate. This gives a whole new meaning to the term hybrid vape pen. You can charge anything that uses USB. Which is pretty much anything in today's world. While 1800MaH isn't huge, it's enough to keep my phone on when I'm in the city all day and away from easily accessible outlets. If you don't charge your phone with this, the battery is enough to last 7-8 sessions at full temperature before having to recharge.

The last main feature I want to talk about is the attachment that allows you to hookup the Flowermate V5.0S Mini Pro to any glass bong that is 14/18mm male/female. I tested this out using a Silika bong. This was by far my favorite feature. The auto shutoff on the Flowermate mini kicks in at 5 minutes. That time frame is more than long enough to get a few hits off your bong. Using the cartridge I was good for about 2 solid vapor hits where I could  see the vapor. Not using the cartridge and filling the non combustion chamber will get you 5-6 hits of milky vapor. You can see examples in the video.

Overall If you are looking for a jack of all trades hybrid vaporizer that can vape your weed, oil, and juice you have found the one. The Flowermate V5.0S Mini Pro is the reigning king of dry herb vapes at the moment. No Atmos Raw, or Grasshopper, or G pen is gonna function the same. You absolutely cannot beat the value in having a vape that attaches to your bong, is also portable, won't ever leave you with burnt bud, and can help you in a pinch with saving your phone. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for an every day carry dry her vape pen.

I hope you guys enjoyed today's hybrid vaporizer review!
