The E-CLIPSE Vaporizer is a small but powerful dry herb vape designed to deliver flavorful, full-bodied vapors. It is sleek, compact and can turn your herbs into vapor in a matter of seconds, all while fitting comfortably in the palm of your hand. And with a powerful, long lasting battery, it is great for vaping at home or on the go.
The E-CLIPSE uses a top-fill, ceramic heating chamber to maximize on flavor and cloud production. It comes with two mouthpiece variations to suit everyone’s preferences. It also supports a variable temperature range from 300F to 435F so that you have total control over your vaping experience.
The E-CLIPSE Vaporizer comes with all the parts you need to start vaping your herbs, plus a few extra pieces. The vape itself comes in a small, protective box to ensure it reaches you safely. It is also a nice addition for taking the vape out with you. The contents of the box include:
When you are shopping for a new vaporizer, there is a list of criteria you want that vape to meet before sinking any money into it. You may want something that looks good and performs well. Or, you are looking for a vape that has some kick and can deliver large, flavorful hits. More likely, you are searching for a vaporizer that combines all these features into one package. Let’s look at what the E-CLIPSE has to offer:
When it comes to looking good and getting the job done, the E-CLIPSE knows how to fill the role. Its glossy black chassis pairs nicely with its bright digital display. The shape and size of the E-CLIPSE also makes it light and comfortable to hold and operate with just one hand, while also making it strong enough to hold up under daily use.
If you are the kind of person that likes to take their vaporizer on the go while also being discreet, then you are sure to find quite a bit of use with the E-CLIPSE. It is both small and lightweight, weighing no more than most smartphones. It will slip into your pocket with ease and hardly stand out in a crowd anymore than a traditional vape would.
The E-CLIPSE is also powerful and fast to heat up. It lets you pick a temperature from 300F to 435F. Once on, it takes the vaporizer 30 seconds or less to reach the temperature you set. You do not have to wait around to take a hit, instead you can start enjoying your dry herbs almost immediately. The E-CLIPSE also comes with a 2200mah battery that will last the average user an entire day on just one charge – heavy users can carry the small USB charger and stop in a Starbucks. This is great for trips, as you do not have to worry about charging the vaporizer while you are out.
The E-CLIPSE Vaporizer uses a top-fill ceramic heating chamber. People often choose top-fill vaporizers because the chamber is right next to the mouthpiece. This allows you to draw the vapor directly from the chamber to maximize the flavor and effects of your dry herbs. Whereas with bottom-fill devices, the vapor must travel through the device, sometimes picking up foul flavors from the inner plastics and other component surfaces.
Ceramic heating chambers have become a standard in dry herb vaping. They heat the herbs evenly and thoroughly to ensure there is no waste. You also know that, while using ceramic, you are getting the best flavor and effects your dry herbs has to offer.
One of the first things you may notice about the E-CLIPSE is there are three buttons on the device: the power button and two oppositely facing arrow buttons. These will control everything on the vape. You can easily remove the top mouthpiece to access the chamber. You also have the option of switching between the flat or glass mouthpiece.
Before venturing out with the E-CLIPSE, you want to make sure it is completely charged. Start by plugging one end of the USB charger into the vape, and the other end into a computer port or wall adapter. The light on the vape will flash blue as it is charging. Once it is done, the light will remain solid and you are ready to start vaping. As a safety measure, do not use the vape while it is charging, and do not leave it charging for too long. It should take around three hours to fully charge.
Just like packing a bowl, you want to make sure the herb is finely ground before loading it into the chamber. I recommend using a quality grinder rather than picking it apart with your fingers. This ensures that the herbs bake evenly throughout the chamber.
Once the grinding has been completed, remove the vape mouthpiece. Then, load the dry herb into the chamber and gently pack it into place. If needed, you can use the included scrapping tool to pack the herbs down – just don’t pack it too tight as you will need air to circulate throughout.
After packing the chamber and returning the mouthpiece to its place, you are ready to turn the E-CLIPSE on and start vaping. To do so, press the power button five times fast. The device will then power on and begin heating the chamber. To turn the vape off, press the power button five times again. As an added safety feature, the E-CLIPSE will automatically turn off after five minutes of continuous use – simply click the power button 5 times in a row to turn it right back on.
The E-CLIPSE allows you to adjust from 300F to 435F. Use the two arrow buttons to pick your desired temperature. You will notice two temperatures on the digital display screen. The larger number is the temperature you have set, while the smaller number is the actual temperature of the chamber. As the vaporizer is heating up, it will display the word “HEAT.” Once it has reached the set temperature, it will display “WARM” and you are ready to start vaping – granted if you are heating to 435 degrees, you can vape along the way as vapor is produced long before the temperature even reaches close to that temperature.
One of the fun things about owning a new device is learning everything you can about it. During my time using the E-CLIPSE Vaporizer, I came across a few things that everyone can benefit from, whether it is regarding safety or just a few changes based on personal preferences.
Starting Low - The first tip is more of a general rule of thumb. When first starting out with the E-CLIPSE, start at the lowest possible temperature and work your way up. This lets you get a feel for what the hits are like at different temperatures. Low temps produce smaller and smoother hits, while high temps give your thicker and stronger hits that sometimes can become too harsh.
Change Between Fahrenheit and Celsius - If you prefer the Celsius measurement over Fahrenheit, you can change it on the vaporizer by pressing the power button for three seconds while it is on. To change it back, just perform the same action.
Don’t Overpack the Chamber - You want to load the chamber with finely ground dry herbs. However, you do not want to overdo it. Packing too much dry herbs in the chamber means it will take longer for the hot air to vaporize all the herbs. The herbs vaporizer as they are warmed by the hot air around them.
Getting Cooler Vapor - Sometimes, especially when vaping at high temps, you may notice the vapor coming from the device is too hot. If this happens, try using the elongated glass mouthpiece that comes with the E-CLIPSE. The vapor will have to travel through the glass tube before entering your mouth, which in turn will cool it down and make it smoother to inhale.
Cooling the Vape Mouthpiece – A vape is designed to get very hot, so naturally, especially during prolonged use, the heat makes its way to the components and they too become very hot. The glass mouthpiece is a great option, but in addition, vape mouthpiece extension sleeves are a great solution to the hot mouthpiece dilemma. Simply slip it onto the tip and you now have a cool, rubber mouthpiece to pull from.
Maintaining and Cleaning the E-CLIPSE Vaporizer
The E-CLIPSE Vaporizer will not require much cleaning or maintenance in general. You may find later down the road that the mouth piece and screen may get clogged with particles coming from the herbs. In the event this happens, you can either soak the mouthpiece and screen in warm water to free the debris, or simply order a replacement.
You will also need to clear the chamber after each vaping session. The included brush and scrapping tool make this an easy task. To start, ensure the vaporizer is off and has had time to completely cool before removing the mouthpiece. Then, simply dump the vaped herbs out and use the brush and scrapping tool to get out any extra pieces that may have gotten stuck inside the chamber.
Is the E-CLIPSE Vaporizer for Me?
Finding the right vape for you depends on your own personal preferences and budget. If you are looking for a sleek, portable dry herb vaporizer that has the power to deliver reliably strong hits, then you will be satisfied with the E-CLIPSE. It is a high quality vape with a powerful battery and a set of features that allow you to fine tune your vaping experience. I would recommend the E-CLIPSE to anyone looking for a well-rounded and long lasting dry herb vaporizer.
As vaping has become more and more popular, there has been a noticeable lack of quality options for dry-herb vape pens. Pens would either be poor quality, high-cost or otherwise inaccessible to the general consumer. That story changed with the introduction of the AGO Vaporizer: a high-quality vape pen that, though it...
