POTV ONE Review – The Pros and Cons
POTV ONE comes with everything you need to get started vaping – and more. But does it perform well? Does the vapor taste good? That’s what we wanted to find out for our readers.
A few things we want to point out are that:
- The ONE comes with a glass accessory attachment
- The unit vibrates when it reaches the temperature you set or shut the unit off
- The mesh mouthpiece allows for fewer cleaning and clogs
And the heater is made with stainless steel, so it holds heat very well and is simple to clean. Plus, the unit can be broken down into just three main parts, which is impressive: stem, mouthpiece and base unit. Snap all three pieces together and you’re ready to begin vaping.
Pro: A Truly Portable and Discreet Vape
Portability and discretion are two of the most important aspects of the ONE, and it’s where the manufacturer spent most of its time. Size-wise, the unit is just 3.2” H x 2” W x 1” D and weighs less than one-fourth of a pound.
It’s a comfortable vape that you won’t even realize is in your pocket when you carry it around.
However, it is a little heavier than some other models, primarily because of the metal design. The metal may weigh more, but it also lends to the quality of the ONE and will ensure it doesn’t break if dropped.
In terms of discreetness, you’ll find that the:
- Mouthpiece is smaller than even the Arizer Solo 2
- Small size helps you hide the vape
For a pocket vape with a mouthpiece, you won’t find a comparable model that is this discreet.
Pro: Extra-Potent Clouds
If you want a portable vape that produces extra-potent clouds, the POTV ONE fits the bill. The potency compares to some of the top premium portable vapes out there, but the POTV ONE stands out because it’s still pocket-sized.
Some would say the POTV ONE is on par with the Crafty in terms of potency, and they’d probably be right. The One produces some of the strongest clouds from a portable vape, and that’s one of its biggest selling points.
Pro: Easy to Use
Some portable vapes are overly complicated, but the POTV ONE is an exception. This vape is so easy to use, which also makes it a great option for beginners.
Like with any other hybrid vape, you’ll want to pack your bowl loosely and use a medium-fine grind for the best experience. Otherwise, there really isn’t much to it when using this vaporizer. It’s simple and straightforward.
The draw resistance is pretty low, too, which is another benefit.
Pro: Precise Temperature Controls
While it’s true that the flavor degrades at high temps when using this vape, the POTV ONE makes up for this by giving you precise temperature controls. With this portable vape, you can adjust the temperature in one-degree increments, which is pretty impressive.
The POTV ONE has a temperature range of 320°F – 430°F, so you can control your vaping experience. And it takes less than a minute to heat up to start your sessions quickly.
Potential Con: Average Battery That’s Not Easy to Replace
The POTV ONE’s battery isn’t all that impressive. In fact, it’s pretty average. Other pocket vapes have better battery life.
That said, the ONE does have a more powerful heating element that draws more power. It also produces exceptionally strong clouds, so it’s easy to see why the battery doesn’t last as long. Determine that trade off, heating element power vs battery life, when deciding whether to purchase the POTV One.
Potential Con: Flavor Can Degrade at High Temps with Aggressive Users
When it comes to flavor, the POTV ONE is excellent in the low-to-mid temperature range. But once you get to the top end of the temperature range, the vapor gets a bit more toasty. That’s likely because it has such as short vapor path, so there isn’t time for the vapor to cool down before it hits you.
Using a longer mouthpiece does help, but if you want to vape at a higher temperature, your best bet is just to use a bubbler. The POTV ONE actually comes with a mini bubbler, so you can give it a try right away.
One of the reasons why this vape produces such great flavor is because it uses a hybrid heating system. What this means is that it uses both conduction and convection heating, so your herbs don’t combust when you’re vaping.
Overall, the POTV ONE is a great little portable vaporizer that can produce seriously potent clouds. It’s discreet and easy to take with you on the go. Best of all, it’s more affordable than other premium portable vapes. If you are looking for another POTV portable option, check out the new Lobo vape.
If you’re looking for a pocket vaporizer that gives you precise temperature control and an intelligent design, the POTV ONE is a great choice.
