Welcome to Our Grasshopper Vape Pen Review
A few years ago, an indie development project for a device called Grasshopper caught the eye of the vaping community. The internet was obsessed with the idea of an herb vaporizer that was actually the size of a pen. It took them a while to get this product off the ground, and it’s still a chore to get your hands on one as the team behind it is very small, and the demand is through the roof.
However, if you’re willing to pay your dues and endure the time you’ll spend on the waiting list, you can finally get your hands on a Grasshopper. It’s been a long time coming, but we can finally review this product.
It was a tall order, and frankly, one that many said was too good to be true. This is probably the smallest portable vaporizer on the market, and for the developers to say it could produce enough vapor to fill a vapor bag (or vapor balloon) in the same way that a desktop unit and whip would was almost unthinkable.
The Grasshopper is now on the market, however, and the claims are true, but there are a couple of drawbacks that you should be aware of. Before we get into the little gripes we have with this unit, let’s talk about everything it has going for it.
Like we said previously, this is the smallest vaporizer on the market, and the vapor production, especially for the size, is just crazy. You can even use it while it’s charging, a feature that is greatly appreciated considering most vaporizers do not allow this.
Speaking of charging, the charger that comes with this vaporizer is pretty awesome! It’s a magnetic charger that seamlessly pops on to the back end of the Grasshopper. The charging time, on average, is about 90 minutes. Remember that this project has been in progress for a few years now, so at the time this was a pretty standard charging time.
Many newer vaporizers won’t take nearly this long to charge, but keep in mind that despite the size, this is a very powerful vaporizer. The 90 minute charging time is absolutely essential to power whatever wizardry is going on inside this unit.
The vapor quality itself is good. It’s pretty hot, but it tastes great. Considering how small the device is, it’s natural to assume that the vapor isn’t going to be extremely cool. After all, the heating element can only be place so far away from the mouthpiece when the unit is the size of a pen.
This brings us to our next point: the grasshopper’s fatal flaw. There have been very few complaints about the Grasshopper, and really only one of great substance. The mouthpiece can get very, very hot. If you’re vaping on lower temperatures, it won’t be a problem, but once you get to middle and high temperatures, this could burn your lips.
This isn’t something that the developers didn’t see coming. In fact, they included a silicone cover that fits perfectly around the mouthpiece for this very reason. If you use the silicone mouthpiece cover, you might notice some heat, but it won’t be painful by any means.
This silicone bit also functions as a surprisingly effective adapter. You can use the Grasshopper with any of your water pipes very easily, and we recommend that you do. The vapor can be a little warm, so running it through a water pipe will really allow you to get the most out of the experience.
Despite a few delays, the Grasshopper is on the market. You’ll still have to wait a while after ordering one, but this a truly revolutionary piece of technology. If the idea behind the Grasshopper intrigues you, we suggest you order one! The wait will be worth it.
