XMax V2 Pro – Budget 3 in 1 Vaporizer

The XMax V2 Pro is a 3 in 1 vaporizer that was released in 2015 that many people still look into when deciding which portable vaporizer to get. The XMax V2 Pro is a bit larger than your typical portable vaporizer and is capable of vaping dry herbs, wax concentrates, and cannabis oils. The XMax V2 Pro is in the low medium price category and today we will be reviewing it to give you a better idea of how it works, its temperature flexibility, vapor quality, build quality, portability, discreteness and our overall assessment of whether or not it's a buy.

How it Works

The XMax V2 Pro is another one of the 1 button operation vaporizers that is very simple to use. To power on the unit you just quickly press the power button five times to activate the device. You will notice there are 5 LED’s on the side of the vaporizer which will all glow as the device turns on, and then one light will display which indicates your current battery level from 1-5.


Like any vaporizer, It is recommend to cycle through the highest temperature setting at least once before actually using the device with your material. This process will allow the heat to burn away any leftover chemicals from the manufacturing process.


After you have the device powered on, you can press and hold the power button for 2 seconds to cycle through to the next highest temperature setting until you reach the one you prefer to use. You can load the oven with the material of your choice using either the oven as normal or by using the concentrate cup. After 5 minutes of usage the device will automatically turn off as a safety feature.

Temperature Flexibility

The XMax V2 Pro uses a five preset temperature option which are set by default as: Low (356F), Medium Low (374F), Medium (392F), Medium High (410F), High (428F). The one button design is very simple to use and allows you to easily and seamlessly switch temperatures while performing your session. The fact that the XMax V2 Pro comes with 5 temperature options is pretty impressive considering the price of this device.

Vapor Quality

The XMax V2 Pro actually was pretty impressive with vapor quality, When looking at vapor quality we look into vapor production, flavor, and smoothness. Vapor production with the X-Max V2 Pro is definitely above average for the price range of other competitively priced vaporizers (almost as good as the Zeus Smite). The conduction heating method definitely helps to give it a boost over other convection vaporizers, but that is to be expected with conduction heating.


The flavor of the XMax V2 Pro is what you would expect in a medium range vaporizer. The taste is on par with other budget devices and at times can give you a bit of that burnt sensation. When chasing flavor you will typically want to look at the higher end vaporizers such as the Firefly 2 or even the Utillian and Zeus vaporizers.


When you are using the XMax V2 Pro on the lower temperature levels it is very smooth and enjoyable, having said that when you bump it up to levels 4 and 5 it does tend to get a little bit hot and it’s a bit harsher to take longer draws.


All the above was with the use of dry herbs and when we switched the device over to concentrates the vapor performance for all three categories was nothing to write home about. Even on the highest temperatures the XMax V2 Pro does not handle concentrates quite as well as the more premium vaporizers. This is to be expected and the XMax is priced very competitively and when putting into the equation the cost vs the performance you still get more than you paid for.

Manufacturing Quality

The XMax V2 Pro is heavier than you would originally think and is comparable in weight to the Firefly 2. The components and build quality feel very sturdy and durable in the hand. The components are as followed: The casing is made with a strong nickel metal, the mouthpiece inhaler is food class safe, the oven is ceramic and you get a titanium steel wax cup for concentrates. Again the important thing to look at here is the value you get when paying such a low price for a portable vaporizer capable of vaping 3 mediums.


The XMax V2 Pro comes with a 6 month manufacturer warranty that covers any defects in the components and materials. This is one of the best 3 in 1 vaporizers under $100.

Battery Life

The XMax V2 Pro runs off of a 2200 mAh battery that you can remove. It’s always nice to be able to purchase some spare rechargeable batteries so that you don’t run out of power on a trip or part way through your day. We found that you can get about 40 to 60 minutes of actual usage from one charge. This is actually better than we expected and puts the usage time around average for low and medium tier vaporizers. The charging time was about 2 hour to completely charge a battery.

Portability

The XMax V2 Pro is a portable vaporizer and the fact that it uses an external battery that you can swap in and out gives the device an advantage over vaporizers that use internal batteries. The weight vaporizer is .320 kg and the size is 18 x 6.5 x 5.5 cm. When thinking about the portability of this unit you must again consider the low cost of the vaporizer in comparison to its ability to vape 3 mediums, with the external battery. The slightly larger size and shape is a personal preference and if a smaller unit is what you are looking for that again we would recommend the Zeus Smite for a vaporizer in the same price range, or something like the PAX 3 which is a more expensive device.

Ease of Use

The XMax V2 Pro as we mentioned earlier uses the 1 button design that we are seeing in most portable vaporizers. The one button design makes the device harder to break, cheaper to make, and easy to use. There really isn’t a more simple design that can be made for this type of vaporizer. The only design that is easier is an on demand heating vaporizer that has little or no wait time such as the Firefly 2.

Discreetness

The XMax V2 Pro is designed to easily fit into your pocket, and the color options allow you to get one that helps to maintain a more discreet profile. Having said this, the device is larger than many of the smaller compact portable vaporizers and if discretion is something you are going for there are better options. A more discrete dry herb vaporizer that falls around the same price point is the Zeus Smite.

Overall Experience

Our overall experience with the XMax V2 Pro 3 in 1 vaporizer was pretty good and this device is a good deal for how much it costs. It does work with all 3 mediums but is definitely suited best for dry herbs. When you look at it as primarily a dry herb performer, we think it is comparable in price and in performance to the Zeus Smite. The Zeus Smite is however a better deal and a more compact unit.

Induction Vaporizer – Loto Lux Multi Material Vape

The Loto Lux is a new release that uses induction heating to cook your material. It's the first ever vaporizer to use electromagnetism to heat dry herbs, liquids, or concentrates. Formerly called the Evoke, the Lux has been in development for quite some time. At last it's available for purchase. In this article we'll look at what we know and what we've seen of the Lux vaporizer.

New Loto Lux Vaporizer

Loto Lux Vaporizer Review

What Sets the Lux Apart?

The big draw of the Lux is its heating technology. This uses magnets to heat-up the rod and in turn your material. This will give industry leaders like the Mighty and Crafty a run for their money. It will also compete with the Utillian 721, one of the most budget-friendly premium devices on the market. These use convection rather than conduction heating to vaporize materials. Electromagnetic induction heating is truly innovative. We were keen to find out how it would perform. Read on to discover what we found.


The Lux uses Bluetooth technology to connect the device to your smart phone. Only a handful of devices currently offer this facility. And it's something that makes your device much more powerful and personal. Apps can monitor your sessions and record what works and what doesn’t work for you. They also store your favorite settings. The Lux app is one of the most functional currently available.

Build Quality of the Loto Lux

The Lux is made from top quality materials and components. The body itself is classy wood and aluminum. The Lux comes with three different glass cartridges. One is for use with concentrates, one for liquids, and one for dry herbs. You slide the right cartridge for the job into the unit and position the mouthpiece over it. Inside the cartridge there's a metal insert. This is what gets heated to vape your materials. A computer chip inside the unit helps run the device and connects it to Bluetooth.

Who Manufactures the Lux

The Lux vaporizer has been a long time in the making. It was a silicon valley startup that first had the idea in 2014. Now, after years of R&D, a conduction vaporizer that uses electromagnetic heating is born.


Loto Labs has filed a couple patents for their new vaporizer. It has now begun shipping the device to those who've backed its development. The whole project has been crowdfunded and the Lux has enjoyed some great exposure throughout its development.

Loto Lux Style

The Lux has a very modern look. The grip has an ergonomic design to make it feel good in your hand. There's just one button. And the version we've seen has a classic wood finish with aluminum lines.


The Lux is a little bit bigger than other popular devices such as the PAX, the Crafty and the Da Vinci. But the Lux can vape all three materials. This makes it one of the most advanced portable vaporizers on the market in 2017.

Thoughts on the Lux Vaporizer

We'll have to wait and see what the vapor quality and performance of the Lux will be. But here's my prediction. I think the induction part is a bit overhyped and vapor quality will be much the same as that produced by other means. Electromagnetism heats the metal insert, which in turn heats your material. This doesn't seem all that different from conduction heating. It will still be surface heat that heats the material. I may be wrong - I'm no expert in thermodynamics. But this is how it seems to me.


It seems that the Lux is nearer to conduction heating than to convection. And convection vaporizers in my opinion will still have an advantage in how it heats your materials. Convection heats materials by forcing hot air through them. This cooks materials more evenly and lowers the chances of them combusting.


I think the Lux will perform well for concentrates and e-juice. The heat-up time is supposed to be pretty much instant. This will give big fast hits similar to a powerful battery mod. So the Lux may suit the nicotine e-liquid crowd more than the cannabis crowd. Again, I could be wrong. And I'll correct myself in an updated article if I am. But this is my current view.

Product Pros

  • portable 3 in 1 device
  • quality build
  • simple to use
  • app connected
  • electro​magnetic heating (new to vaping)

Product Cons

Conclusion - Final Thoughts on the Lux

Since this is a speculative article, I can't give a yes/no answer to whether you should spend $399 on this new device. What I'd suggest is that you wait until you see some user reviews or an updated review from us. The Lux is expensive and it's using an untried method to vape three different materials. And there's no guarantee it will produce superior results. The jury, as they say, is still out.


We’ll do our best to get some hands-on experience so we can share more with you. I wish the Lux well and hope I'm wrong in my surmise about how it will perform with dry herbs. Once we're able to test the Lux for ourselves, we'll bring you a more detailed review.
