Hot Box Vaporizer Review by The Vape Critic



Stay up!





The Vape Critic says:

yea the launch box is cool like that, glad to hear u like it

this vape definitely produces more visible vapor, so it might smell a little stronger

it’s pretty easy to manage but if u can’t have the odor escaping your room you might have to setup some ventilation or do a little deodorizing

eduardo gallegos says:

do you know where I can get the end of the wand I broke mine 🙁

mos619 says:

Had one of these before I got my solo. Great little unit. The main thing I didn’t like was the long heat up time, but I learned to turn it on 10 before I was ready to vape.

Strange But Not A Stranger says:

I ordered the MFLB because of your reviews. I ordered the HotBox because i wanted a table top vape that was easy to use and i looked through your reviews and found this!

The Vape Critic says:

hey thanks for the kind words i’m glad u dig the vids, hope ur enjoying the vapes too!

The Vape Critic says:

glad you’re diggin it!

T Tice says:

Did you prefer the ground glass or standard connections?

I’d be a little concerned that the ground glass would heat up and become fragile.

The Vape Critic says:

hey not sure what u mean?

Jeff Swan says:

Thanks for the info!

Matt Smith says:

Also the glass in the box is covering the hole a little so maybe that’s stopping the heat from coming through better. But it does the job never the less.

Meter Pangs says:

Can I use it with Hash ?

Blaise Jorgensen says:

Boil Your tube in water it wont coil any more boil them for like 30 seconds

The Vape Critic says:

cool no doubt, yea man vapes are the ish

Freedom Is Quite a Thing says:

Does the hotbox still work?

Filthy says:

I chose this vaporizer after seeing this vid and i fuckin love it! i haven’t been this buzzin in a long time cause of my tolerance.
I tried fucking with the cheap vapes, the portable ones, none of them even had me feeling anything.
This gets everyone fucked up 8) tastes great too.

The Vape Critic says:

nice let me know what you think about it, is it your first vape?

The Vape Critic says:

hey i don’t think so, i believe they all have the same heating element, the two i reviewed pretty much performed the same

David Shodo Portolano says:

CAVEAT EMPTOR (buyer beware) I wound up w/ a fake “eGo” EVOD vape pen trying to copy the KangerTech fkg lame then just went down to head shop and got Hotbox simple what I need when I am baking table top better for me as I don’t smoke out of house too often anymore (don’t go out anymore hahaha ; ) peace or resistance mOnK

snake4342001 says:

Got one for my first vape. It’s perfect. Great video and thanks for showing ground glass model.

Wulver says:

Thanks for replying man. Yeh my new room in the new house I’ll be moving to has a balcony so I could easily just keep the balcony doors open.

I honestly believe everyone just use vaps. They just seem a lot cleaner in the sense they smell less, taste better, don’t smoke up a small area for long periods of time and for me personally I just seem to get a bigger kick with a smaller amount of herb.

alicia dwyer says:

Maybe soak the tubing in hot water for a while. take it out and play with it while it cools?

Karen M Huestis says:

Nice review! I had a silversurfer, which I loved, but it was EU, and now that I’m in the US, I opted for the little black HotBox with ground glass. The best thing about this vape (for me) is that it’s low profile, or, you could say, that it doesn’t attract any attention while sitting on a side table. The 30 minute heat up time didn’t change my routine.

David Shodo Portolano says:

helpful thx 

Katrina M. says:

Conduction or convection? I want to make sure dry material wouldn’t actually burn/combust in this one!

Tony weed says:

Hey Bud does the size of the hot box make a difference in the size of the hit or anything else

Jason Whyte says:

One thing that not many people mention about these is just how bulletproof they are. I didn’t like the heat up time, so I just started to leave it on… for weeks at a time… and that was 10 years ago. No joke. My guess is that it lasts because the temperature doesn’t change, and the box itself retains a lot of heat, so the element doesn’t have to work as hard. The only flaw in the design is that you have to be very careful when disassembling the whip because it’s held together by pressure from the o-ring. I crack one every couple years. The top glass piece costs about $25 to replace from their website, and you have to be sure to get the right one (there are 3 options; classic, hands free, and ground glass).

The Vape Critic says:

you could try grinding your material finer, and also try different draw speeds – sometimes a slow, gentle pull works best, sometimes pulling harder and/or faster will work best

i’d experiment with those things and see what happens

Erick Beebe says:

thank you for your videos.

The Vape Critic says:

with the hot box i actually prefer the ground glass, but with the SSV i prefer the standard

بوحسين اللورد says:

That’s from sheshaaaaaaa

mark conlin says:

the one that looks like an inhaler, is it any good?

ted714 says:

Did you end up getting a vaporizer? I have this EZ Vape, it was cheap and I love it … (it was about $60)

The Vape Critic says:

if you don’t need the portability you’ll get more/stronger vapor from the hot box

The Vape Critic says:

+Tristan Ferlesch – smell is all in the vapor, generally it smells less than half as strong as smoke and it dissipates more than twice as fast

+alicia dwyer yes good tip that will definitely help

Jason Anderson says:

Recently got one. they seem to have improved the quality of tubing since this vid was made. I have the ground glass and the included tubing is soft and flexible.   Great Vape.

Strange But Not A Stranger says:

Just ordered one, cant wait to get it!

Matt Smith says:

How do people get cloudy hits out of this mine always comes out little smoke mist. But it does work holly mole.

Cheff Hardwick says:

Hows the smell it produces? would you say very strong or little to none?

Dan TheMan says:

I really do love your review videos – they’re perfect – at least for me. Peace.
