Today I’ve decided to review a vaporizer that comes with a bit of twist. It’s a battery-less vaporizer that goes by the name of the WISPR 2 that promises to give you the total freedom to vape anywhere, anytime and even without a power source.
But is it awesome? Well here’s my full Iolite WISPR 2 review!
So right from the minute I saw this thing online I just knew I wanted to get one and to review it mainly just because it looks so funky and cool.
This device has a really unique style to it and I was really to pleased to see upon getting my WISPR 2 and opening it for the first time that it looks just as cool in real life as it does in the product photos on the Vape World website:
I seriously think this is one of the coolest designs that I’ve come across in terms of vaporizers. I went for the orange version but they come in all sorts of other great looking and vibrant colors too.
The actual packaging and instructions that come with the WISPR 2 is also extremely high quality and just really nicely done. They’re well written, include lots of diagrams and they even include a handy ‘quick start’ guide that make getting started with the WISPR 2 a breeze.
Included with the kit are also a few other accessories including things like a carry bag for the vaporizer as well as perhaps my favorite accessory of all – the ‘business card’ herb grinder:
The small Iolite grinder card that you can see above fits perfectly inside of your wallet and it can be used to grind up your herbs wherever you are by simply rubbing your herbs along the top of the card. Admittedly it does take a bit longer than my normal routine of just chucking my herb inside of a coffee bean grinder and hitting the ‘on’ button but in a situation where you don’t have electricity or power on hand I could see how this could come in handy big time and it definitely beats grinding your herbs by hand any day.
And basically just based off first impressions I got a really good vibe from this device.
What Makes The WISPR 2 Vaporizer Unique…
Beyond the asthetics of the Iolite WISPR 2 vaporizer there’s something even more unique that makes this vaporizer different and unique from basically every other vaporizer that I’ve tried and used to date.
And this is that the WISPR 2 vape doesn’t run on batteries or anything like that but instead it runs on butane gas which can be bought at most tobacco stores or online for just a few bucks a bottle.
Filling up the device with butane is also extremely easy and can be done by simply pressing the butane gas bottle up to the little hold that’s located on the bottom of the vape:
And what’s really cool about this process is that it literally only takes a few seconds to fill up your vape. This means that you’ll never find yourself in a situation where you go to leave your house and grab your vape only to find out that it’s dead and that you don’t have enough time to charge it up.
With the WISPR 2 you can simply bang it on the bottle of Butane for a few seconds and then BOOM you’re back in action.
The ‘Trade Offs’ For Ultimate Portability…
Although there are a few big advantages to having a butane vaporizer there are also a few trade offs that you’ll want to know about before buying a WISPR 2.
- It’s noisy and not great for stealth. The first time I turned this vape on I was a little startled by the loud sound of the gas running and although you do get used to it fairly quickly it still ultimately makes this vaporizer not very good for ‘stealth’ since it can be heard from pretty far away.
- It emits a slight odor. It’s to be expected when you are using butane gas but I still feel it should be noted that this vaporizer does emit a slight butane smell. It’s not that invasive and you can only really smell it when you hold the device close to your face but it’s still something that you should be aware of.
- It only has ‘one’ temperature. Unlike most of the other vaporizers that are out there which can be set to any temperature that you desire the WISPR 2 just has one heat level and although it definitely seems to vape well at this temperature it’s still a little disappointing that you can’t adjust it as much as you can with other vapes.
However despite these trade offs I still think the WISPR 2 is a very good device simply because you wont find many other vapes that really do give you the freedom to vape anywhere without batteries:
This device would be absolutely perfect for occasions where you are going to go away from home for a considerable amount of time (think camping, multiple day festivals etc).
Strong And Tasty Vape Hits…
The vape quality on the WISPR 2 is also very decent and although the hits that you get off it can be a little warm they are definitely tasty. The ‘hit’ that you get off the WISPR 2 is on the stronger side s and it definitely has a kick to it.
If you’re more of a fan of lighter and airy draws than this may not be the vape for you but if you love a vape with a punch to it than the WISPR definitely delivers.
Although I really do like what the WISPR 2 vape has to offer ultimately I think that this is a vape that I will only use in very specific situations. It’s a bit too loud to be used as a stealth vape or even just for chilling at home and although the butane smell isn’t that bad I think I still would prefer to use a vaporizer that doesn’t have that smell at all.
However for situations where I’m going away for an extended period of time and know that I wont be near a power source… this is PERFECT.
So whilst I don’t think this portable will necessarily be for everyone I really do love that this device literally requires zero electricity and zero charging giving you total freedom to use it anywhere, anytime and for as long as you could possible want.
Even if the apocalypse came, the zombies invaded and we depleted all of the power in the world… you’d still be able to use your WISPR 2 so long as you have a bottle of butane gas on you.
And for this reason I’m going to give the WISPR 2 a vape rating of 7/10.
