Can deliver vapor for up to 4 users by whip simultaneous or by bag, making it the best vaporizer on the market for compassion clubs and coffeeshops as well as party people. Compact yet very functional, with an elegant LED interface and touch interface, the Rise 2.0 is one of our favorite desktop vapes.
Developed by Vapir, the Rise is a versatile forced-air vaporizer offering whip or balloon bag inhalation for use with both dry herbal blends and aromatherapy oils.
With up to four simultaneous users, it’s the perfect vape for sociable stoners, coffeeshops and compassion clubs.
Established in 1997, Vapir earned themselves a positive reputation in the vaporizer industry with popular models like the NO2, Oxygen Mini and One 5.0.
With the recently tweaked Rise they have muscled into Volcano territory; if the design is not as iconic, its functionality and sheer versatility are more than a match.
New features of the Vapir Rise 2.0 include an extended temperature range (it now goes as high as 215°C/420°F), and fanless operation. As well as ten speeds, the new, improved Rise can also function with the fan turned fully off for a longer, more efficient vaping session.
Opening the box of Vapir Rise 2.0 Accessories is at first rather intimidating; there are just so many damn parts. But the guidebook is clear and well laid out and the quick-start summary will get you up and vaping in no time. It’s this variety of parts that gives the Rise such versatility.
For the record, the box includes the unit itself and its power cord. There are separate chambers for herb blend and oils, and adapters for the chamber, balloon and inhalation. There’s a metal ‘grabber’ for picking up the hot chamber, 3 inflatable balloons and a balloon clamp, large and small mesh screens, 4 silicone tubes and a multi-user adapter.
Precise Touch Pad Control System
The Rise features a precise touch pad control system that makes the vaporization process clear and easy to control. The LCD screen displays in either Fahrenheit or Celsius.
The unit is able to hit vaporizing temperatures in less than 1 minute. Its wide range and accurate temperature control makes the Vapir Rise 2.0 great for use with a variety of common and exotic herbs.
The Vapir Rise 2.0 sports a dual-functionality: you can enjoy the vapor through the traditional whip (silicone tubing) or a balloon bag system. Personally, I’m a not a huge bag fan, and the Rise bags are rather plastic-y (as opposed to the more culinary feel of the Volcano bags). The valve is also a bit cheap.
Rising to the occasion
Having filled the herb chamber – well, half-filled it since it is huge – I opted for the whip. The oven lid can have 1,2,3 or 4 whips attached simultaneously, thanks to its Multi-User Adapter.
The stainless steel design creates a clean vapor path and good tasting vapor, helped by a ceramic heating element and HEPA air filter system. The forced-air fan system is quieter than more expensive fan vapes on the market.
It works well with a single user, and just as well with 3 (the most I got together). I’d never used a multi-user vape before, and it is nicely sociable.
The multiple user adapter looks like cylinder of a revolver, which led me to assume it held separate loads of herb. It’s actually just a diverter with little switches to cut off airflow, allowing the 1-4 user functionality.
You’ll be a fan of this fan
As noted, the fan is quiet; very quiet on the lowest (of 10) setting, and can be switched off entirely. If you’ve ever been annoyed at the volume your desktop vape makes, you’ll like this feature.
The continuous fan is to keep the herb chamber cool. If you have a Volcano you need to remove the herb chamber between bag fills so the herb doesn’t scorch. On it’s lowest setting, the imperceptible airflow from the fan is sufficient to prevent this.
When cleaning, pay careful attention to the rod in the center of the basket and clean it up and down with a cotton bud dipped in Iso. The whips can be cleaned by half-filling with Iso and shaking with the ends closed, and rinsing with hot water. Introduce a spot of washing up liquid, half fill with water and shake. Rinse again and hang up to dry.
Getting top clouds
If you’re after thick vapor clouds (and you can, even with small loads), there are a couple of tricks you need to know. One is to pre-heat the bowl for 3-5 minutes before using the hot chamber grabber to pull open the bowl and load your herb. The chamber will be hot, and you will need the holder. Snap chamber back in the unit and you’re good to go.
The second key thing is to make sure the upper screen in the heating chamber with the shaft attached to it remains sitting against your herb. Sometimes (when sticky, prior to cleaning) it will get stuck at the top of the chamber as your heated weed shrinks, reducing the performance.
For real cloud chasers, this newly pimped up Rise produces even thicker vapor thanks to the higher possible temps, and the option of shutting the fan off.
Conclusion: Vapir Rise 2.0
With its design tweaks, the Vapir Rise 2.0 is way superior to previous Vapir products, bringing a solidity and greater functionality than we’ve been used to. It’s super-versatile, solid and well made.
The design is practical but for the most part elegant, the whole unit is compact and overall offers great bangs for your buck. The touchscreen controls are clear and effortlessness.
