The NewVape FlowerPot is extremely unique and well-made, I love products like this. It’s an herbal vaporizer that was designed to work with any 16mm e-nail, like the one pictured above, and what’s extra cool is that it’s pure convection heating.
UPDATE 10/17: NewVape has updated their FlowerPot components and they’re now even better and nicer than the ones I show in my review video.
Check out these new pictures I took below, the first few pics are of their new Shower Head and the other pics are of the standard sized head but with the quartz dish on top:
Hot air is all that heats your herb, and they’re calling it a “twax” vape because you can actually use it to vape both flower and concentrates, even at the same time, which is quite an experience.
As you can see in the pic above, this was designed for use with a glass rig, and they happen to sell the rig I show in my review which works perfectly with the FlowerPot.
You can use any glass piece you want with a standard 14mm or 18mm connection, male or female. They offer two different bowls or “FlowerPots”, a male body and a female body, and each one is universal in that it will work with any 14/18mm rig.
Check out my full video review below, it’s about 5 minutes long and I show a few clips of me using it in there:
It’s a relatively simple concept how it works, and aside from the enail controller box there are no other electronic components.
What you’re paying for with this one is the quality of the materials used and the attention to detail with which it is manufactured – the stuff feels like it’ll last forever.
The enail controller box is not the special part, it’s a pretty generic one that’s nothing fancy but it does the job.
I wouldn’t consider the enail coil itself to be anything special either, which is why you don’t have to use theirs, but what is very cool and unique is the enail handle they make with aluminum and hemp wick.
It’s function is to keep your handle cool and it does a mighty fine job of that, in addition to it looking and feeling great.
Vaporization occurs inside the chamber where the “head” and the “pot” meet. The ONLY non-titanium part of the vapor path is the brass screen at the bottom of the bowl, and as far as my senses can tell this doesn’t affect the flavor or purity of the vapor at all.
In my video I show you exactly how I use it, but basically you pack a thin layer of herb inside the FlowerPot and attach it to your rig, and then when you’re ready to take a draw you pick up the heated head and place it on the pot.
You only keep the head on top of the pot for a few seconds while you draw, and right before you finish pulling you take the heater off and clear the vapor from your rig.
In between draws you need to keep the hot head somewhere, so they make a couple of custom stands to keep it on while it’s hot, one of which is the “FlowerPot Tray Base & Lid” I have that doubles as a storage container for used and unused herb. It has a post labeled HOT on one side and a cleaning spike on the other side for clearing out your bowl (make sure it cools down first, be careful!).
Now if you really wanna go crazy you can also vape herb and wax at the same time with this by loading some flower in the pot and then putting the head on top and doing a dab. This is pretty intense, so take it slow.
When vaping flower only it’s a super pure convection experience. The head piece gets so hot that when air gets pulled through those nine holes on top it gets super-heated right before going through your herb.
You’ll need to play around with the temperature settings on the enail controller because even though NewVape recommends starting at 800°F I think you may want to start a little lower to avoid any accidental combustion while you learn how to use it.
The higher the temp the faster it’s going to heat your herb and the faster you’ll have to hit it. Temps on the lower end allow you a little more time to take a draw without the risk of overheating.
What I also like about this is the versatility with how much you load at a time. Most vapes have a specific amount of herb you should pack them with to get the best performance from them, but with the FlowerPot you can efficiently and effectively vape as little as 0.05g and as much as 0.5g.
The other great thing about on-demand manual heating is that you can take as few or as many draws in one session as you’d like, and the rest will be there waiting for you whenever you decide to finish it off.
Overall, I’d consider this a true connoisseur’s vape. The focus is squarely on the quality of materials used and the complexity of the vapor produced.
When you factor in the manual heating aspect you have a mighty fine example of a fully-controlled convection vape experience, not to mention that gnarly ability it has to vaporize herb and oil at the same time.
Click here to buy the FlowerPot direct from the official NewVape store. I recommend the ShowerHead Starter Kit which comes to $360 after my 10% discount (make sure to use my promo code VAPECRITIC to get 10% off your order). They do compensate me if you use my code but I’m very serious about the quality of their products and I sincerely appreciate your support!
Also, if you get this vape make sure you request a free pick tool from me, it goes perfectly with this setup.
