Inhalater XP Vaporizer

The Inhalater (INH004) is a marker shaped portable vaporizer that was first released in summer 2012. In December of that year, the Inhalater XP (Xtra Performance) was released, featuring both cosmetical and internal changes.

The bowl of the Inhalater is shaped in the form of a capsule and is fabricated from flexible, yet heat resistant material (polyimide). Each capsule holds approximately .4 grams of finely shredded material.

Equipped with a built-in lithium Ion battery, a fully charged Inhalater lasts about an hour.

Inhalater Review

By Vaporizer Info on 13-12-2012

I’ve been wanting to write this review for some weeks now, but for some reason things kept coming in between. The good news: it bought me extra time to test out this portable vaporizer even more thoroughly.

Inhalater?
Agreed, it might not be the best name for a portable vaporizer. The specific model we are reviewing goes by the (again) not-so-attractive name ‘INH004’. An upgraded version, which is released at the end of 2012, will go by the name ‘Inhalater XP’, where XP stands for ‘EXtra Performance’.

Looks


The Inhalater is a marker shaped portable vaporizer, albeit somewhat bulkier in its outlines. Weighing just over a 100 grams, the Inhalater is easy to carry around.

The housing consists of hard plastic and has a sticker wrapped around it to give it a brushed metal-like look. The XP will be available in multiple colours. To reach the mouthpiece, the cap can be taken off with a (firm) twist motion. Pulling out the mouth piece reveals the herb chamber, which is shaped like a capsule and is made out of what appears to be some kind of flimsy plastic. It actually is made out of polyimide, a thermally stable resin that is also used in high-heat medical applications. A tube for the mouthpiece is optional, it does come included.

The side of the device has ‘INHALATER’ written on it, which doesn’t exactly add to the stealthiness. However, this is be printed less conscpicious on the Inhalater XP – a positive change in my opinion.

A temperature dial (that duals as on/off switch) is located at the bottom of the Inhalater. While this dial turns quite loosely, I didn’t have any problems with it.

Ease of Use


When I first received the Inhalater it took me a few minutes to figure out how to reach the mouthpiece/herb chamber. I soon learned that the cap at the top requires quite a bit of force to take off (it is a pop cap), and for that same reason it also offers good protection.

Filling the herb capsule takes some effort, as it is quite narrow. Folding a piece of paper makes this somewhat easier. It must also be noted that is important to grind the herb very finely – not only does this make filling easier, it also allows for more even vaporization. The performance is not affected by the size of the load, which is a plus. The bowl holds about .3 grams of (finely shredded) herb.

Overall, the Inhalater isn’t difficult to use, as long as you’re not in a hurry. It may not be the easiest vape to load, but once loaded it’s very easy to operate. All you need to do after filling the capsule is select the temperature, take the cap off and inhale vapor. It is fairly easy to take nice draws, there is little resistance. A moderate draw seems to give the best results.

Heating up takes between 60 seconds and 3 minutes, depending on the temperature setting. According to the manual, a three minute wait is in order before starting to vape, and I usually stick to this for optimal results on the first hits.

Vapor Quality


This is where the Inhalater really stands out. After the first hit I couldn’t help but notice that the vapor is a) full of flavor and b) very smooth on the throat. After toying around with the temperature settings for a bit I found the perfect setting for me where the vapor tastes just right. After some time I did notice that this really varies depending on personal preferences (most of my friends prefer higher temperatures) and the type of herb you are using.

The Inhalater does a great job at vaporizing your blend nice and evenly, and stirring is not required – it also wouldn’t be very convenient given the size of the capsules.

A downside of the capsules lies in the design. Given the shape I found cleaning to be somewhat difficult, with small particles becoming stuck in the small metal gauze that sits near the mouthpiece. This is particularly frustrating when you are on the road and are unable to thoroughly clean it.

Durability


Like most modern portables, the Inhalater is equipped with a built-in lithium Ion battery. This battery is user replaceable and can be charged via (micro)-USB. Personally, I’m a big fan of USB-chargeable devices, so I’m not complaining about this.

To get a full charge takes about 5 hours, but it is not recommended to let lithium batteries completely run empty. At temperature setting 5-6, the battery lasts about 3 to 4 sessions. What’s also nice is that the vape can be used while it is being charged – I’m happy to see more and more portables incorporating this feature (ie DaVinci, Solo).

What slightly worries me is the durability of the polyimide capsules. The material seems to crack quite easily, and I can see it breaking after extensive use. An additional capsule is included, but it’s a clever idea to order a bunch of replacement capsules right from the start.

Conclusion


The Inhalater is a nice device that has no trouble competing with the Pax and Solo (both are in the same price range and offer similar features.) It provides great, thick hits of tasty vapor and has decent battery life. Is it the perfect vape? Not for me, but then again I’m not sure if there will ever be a perfect vaporizer. With the vaporizer industry still in its infancy, I think we’ll see many more changes coming, and this unit is a great example of the things that are to come.

All cons set aside, the Inhalater makes a great unit for daily use. It may not be the most stealthy vape, but then again, with the type of clouds the INH produces it is difficult to stay completely unnoticed, anyways.

+ Excellent tasting vapour
+ Easy to use
+ Can be used while plugged in

- Herb capsules are not built to last
- Capsule can be difficult to clean

Inhalater XP review

By The Guy on 14-10-2013

I just got the atmos and I felt so ripped off. I'm mainly looking for a vaporizer for health reasons. I don't want toxins to build up in my lungs, when I know that there is a way to have fun and stay healthy.

The Atmos literally burns herbs. I don't even know how to it got rated top on High Times Magazine. After that I'm never going to them for advice. Their loyalty is definitely for their sponsors and less for quality in journalism.

But I tried the Inhaler XP! And I was amazed by the quality in taste, and how my herbs looked vaporized after finishing instead of burnt (AKA Atmos burns). Keep it up! I really want to buy it but it's a little bit expensive.

Inhalater XP review

By Frank on 28-04-2014

I love this thing, it's my first portable, and now my full time vape. It's not a small pen vape, but those all burn the herb, this is more of a cigar sized herb only vaporizer that doesn't combust your herb. Tastes great,holds a good amount of your favorite blend, can go anywhere,can use it while it's charging.Seems like very high quality construction(I've dropped it a few times) the one bad thing is temp dial moves very easily.
You barely have to touch it and it changes temps.what I did to fix this was to purchase an O-ring from the hardware store and put it on the end with the dial and. It creates enough friction to hold the dial steady but it still let's it turn with just a little force...overall I Love it it's all I use now.......it's pricey but worth it
