Vapium, makers of the Summit vaporizer that we reviewed earlier this year, have released a brand-new vaporizer targeted at the entry-level vaporizer market. Called the “Lite” it retails for a very affordable $79. For such a low price, the Lite seems to deliver a lot of value.

- Product Dimensions: 3.9” x 0.62” x 1.42” (10 cm x 2.2 cm x 3.6 cm)
- Vapor Delivery Method: Direct Draw
- Product Weight: 0.19 lbs (88 grams)
The first thing that impressed me about the Vapium Lite was how well-labeled the buttons were. A lot of vaporizers opt for slick designs that can be hard to understand at first glance unless you’re already very familiar with a wide variety of vaporizers — not the Lite, however. Each button is easy to identify and each LED associated with a temperature range is clearly identified so you know exactly how hot you’re vaping.
Feedback during operation is well-designed, with a simple and easy to feel vibration that lets you know when the vape is ready to go. The loading process is similarly easy to work with, simply pop the mouthpiece off and place ground herb in the ceramic chamber, then click the mouthpiece back on and heat it up. Within 45 seconds you’re ready to start enjoying those clouds.
A small criticism I have regards the shape of the mouthpiece. It’s a bit stunted and hard for me to enjoy comfortably, as well as having a plastic feel that I didn’t particularly enjoy. It’s a minor concern, though, considering this vaporizer’s target market and price point.
Vapium throws in a few useful extras with the package. Included in the box is a wire brush for cleaning, a replacement air path filter, a USB-C charging cable and an adapter that replaces the mouthpiece for use with water pipes. Also built-in to the vaporizer itself is a nice little stir stick.
The Vapium Lite is a perfect buy for someone who’s looking to try out a portable vaporizer without breaking the bank. It’s well-worth the $79 price for such a user — and to be honest, perhaps others. The vape has few notable problems, even if it lacks advanced features. Grab one from the Vapium site today!
