Vaporfi is one of the top herbal vaporizer companies known for making e-cigarettes with high power and attractive designs. Now Vaporfi has come out with the Stratus Dry Herb Vaporizer, bringing a compact and affordable new device for dry herbs to the market as well. The Stratus Vaporizer kit has everything you need for a satisfying vaporizing experience right out of the box.
The 2200 mAh battery is easy to charge and the kit comes with a USB charging cable and a wall adapter. A bright and easy-to-read OLED display lets you know the battery charge and temperature setting at a glance. Having a charge indicator is one of my favorite features in a vape pen because I hate the surprise of running out of power at the wrong moment. The life of the charge on this battery is impressive, lasting about two hours of heavy use before needed to be recharged.
This top herbal vaporizer unit has only three control buttons and is activated like most vape pens by pushing the power button rapidly five times to turn the unit on. It also has an automatic shut-off, so you don’t waste battery life if you forget to turn it off, something that can happen to anyone using a vaporizer.
After you turn the unit on, the light inside the power button blinks to show you it is heating the coil. Compared to other vaporizers, this one heats fast, so you can start hitting on it quickly. When the chamber is hot enough to produce vapor, the light stays on steady.
This device is compact and discreet, but it still has a lot of styles and it looks a lot like an e-cig MOD, making it easier to use without giving yourself away. It is amazingly light, weighing in at only 2.6 ounces, making it great for travel and being on-the-go. The chamber holds between one half and one full gram of herb, depending on how you fill it. Packing it loosely is my recommendation because that way you don’t need to stir the contents in the chamber as often. On the other hand, if you are sharing with a group of friends, packing it to the max lets you go on vaping for several rounds before you need to refill the chamber with fresh herb.
While we are on the subject of sharing, the kit includes three silicon mouthpieces, which can be nice when you are passing it around in a group of friends. Vaporfi’s last model, the Orbit, (another really popular vape pen) tends to get a bit hot at the chamber, making the mouthpiece necessary as an insulator, so you don’t burn your lips. But the Stratus has six air vents in the tube, and it stays a lot cooler, so you can actually take the mouthpiece off if you want.
This top herbal vaporizer has a precision temperature control which lets you choose the temperature one degree at a time anywhere from 350 to 430 degrees F. This feature puts you in control of selecting the right vapor temperature for your preferences and the herb you are enjoying.
The kit comes with a USB cable, wall charger, and a packing tool. The packing tool is a great little tool for stirring the content in the chamber and for getting the herb into the chamber as well. This vaporizer is priced at $129.99 and gets a 3.5 on battery life.

For the price, you won’t find a better vaporizer than this one. Price aside, the Vaporfi Stratus gives you a genuinely great vaporizing experience compared to the competition, letting you enjoy your dry herb or tobacco without all the chemicals present in smoke. The precision temperature settings and long battery charge give you what you need for the most enjoyable vaping. This is a great starter kit for newcomers to vaporizing, since the kit comes complete with everything you need, except the herb. The price is about half the cost of other vaporizers of this class, and you get a great style to go along with that.
The Stratus herbal vaporizer comes in black or red colors. The style is discreet, yet attractive. It is a little bigger than most ecig MODs, but it looks just like one. It fits comfortably in your pocket or purse making it great for when you are on-the-go.
Personally, I really enjoy how this vaporizer is cooler (in temperature) than the Orbit. It seems to run at a cooler temperature than many other brands I have tried, and this can be important when it is getting heavy use with a group of friends. It has super easy to use and activated by pulling on the device with no need to keep pushing the button.
The heavy vapor production is also satisfying for beginning vapers who are switching from smoke. Earlier models of vaporizers had a tendency to produce vapor that was too weak for many people, but you won’t have that problem with this one. The vapor is rich and heavy, and it will bring a smile to your face.
Overall, this easily ranks a top herbal vaporizer for how it works, and the price just makes it even more attractive. The Stratus is more than an improvement over the Orbit, it is also stiff competition for more expensive vaporizers, making it a superior choice for experienced and newbie vapers alike.
