Known as a budget-friendly brand, Flowermate has been around for as long as we can remember. One of their portable vaporizer offerings, the Flowermate AURA, has been a staple for budget-oriented consumers who are looking for an upgrade from the average vaporizer. The Flowermate AURA is both dependable and affordable packing a beefy 2600mAh of battery capacity allowing you to enjoy long vaping sessions in between charges. The battery can also be charged with a micro-USB charger which the brand likes to call a rapid USB charger. The Flowermate AURA allows you to enjoy an average of 2 hours of continous use before it demands to be plugged into a power outlet which takes the Flowermate AURA an average of 3 to 4 hours to reach a full charge. The battery is paired to a conduction oven that vaporizes a wide variety of materials through the use of pods or inserts. This is what makes the Flowermate AURA a multi-purpose vaporizer that can vaporize different kinds of material including dry herbs, wax concentrates, and essential oil extracts. Because it was designed to be compatible with a wide variety of materials, the Flowermate AURA was endowed with a temperature setting that can keep up and bring the best out of each material type. The Flowermate AURA is equipped with precision temperature controls that allow you to adjust the temperature level of this portable vaporizer depending on your needs, preference, and what suits the material you are consuming best. You can check the running temperature level as well as other relevant information on the device through its OLED screen so you’re always in the know of what’s going on in your device. The Flowermate AURA is a vaporizer that offers the value of three units for the price of one. You no longer have to buy three vaporizers just so you can use wax, herb, and other extracts.
However, as good as the Flowermate AURA might look good on paper, it’s not going to be an everyman’s vaporizer. While its tempting price tag may draw a lot of consumers from buying it, some beginners may find that using the Flowermate AURA is a bit daunting. The need to use specific pods in conjunction with certain materials may cause some consumers confusion. Furthermore, its precision temperature controls may cause beginners to step back and think before investing in the Flowermate AURA. Vape newcomers and novices often prefer to use vaporizers with a single heat setting because it offers a simple and a more straightforward means of consuming their favorite materials. Adding the element of personalization and customization might also add the element of confusion to most beginners. Instead of having to focus on the effects of their herbs and wax concentrates, they are left to focusing on what temperature level they should use on their materials and if they’re basically doing it right. If you find yourself in the same situation, our detailed review of the Flowermate AURA can help you. We’ll look into some of its features so you would know whether or not the Flowermate AURA is going to be the right vaporizer for you before you splash some cash into this multi-purpose vaporizer. So, let’s begin.
Let’s start with one of the most glaring concern which makes the Flowermate AURA look a lot less of a user-friendly device. The Flowermate AURA uses precision temperature controls allowing you to accurately dictate the running temperature level of your device. For those who have had an experience in using a vaporizer, temperature plays a vital role in how the overall vapor output will be. Ideally, the lower the temperature setting, the smoother and the cooler the vapors are. On the other hand, the higher you set the temperature level, the more potent and the harsher the vapors become. That said, the Flowermate AURA offers a wide temperature range that allows you to enjoy the lowest lows and the highest highs possible on a small and compact device. It has a range that runs from 104° F to 446° F. This lets you extract all the active ingredients your herbs and your wax concentrates have to offer from the delicate ones to the ones that offer relaxing effects to the potent ones that really get you.
Contrary to the common conception of many beginners, working the Flowermate AURA’s precision temperature controls is fairly easy. It only uses three buttons; one to power it on, the two buttons act as a “plus” button and a “minus” button that increase and decrease the temperature level so you can either crank the temperature level up or just keep it way down low. Each increment in the adjustment is reflected in the OLED display screen installed on the device as well as the running temperature level, the battery level, and a notification icon that shows when your herbs or wax concentrates are ready. That said, beginners shouldn’t be too afraid of using the Flowermate AURA. If you’re a vape newbie and are having second thoughts about using the Flowermate AURA either as a daily driver or as a secondary device you use when you’re away from your main desktop rig, rest assured that the learning curve is easy and there’s mastery in repetition. So, as long as you’re not afraid of learning new vaping styles and are eager to explore, the Flowermate AURA will prove to be a great portable vaporizer that’s worth investing in. However, if what you’re after is a device that gives you the kind of set it and forget it experience or a plug and play kind of vaporizer, you’d best be looking for a device with a single heat setting.
Compared to other vaporizers in the same category, the Flowermate AURA offers such a beefy battery and one that can really give you your money’s worth. Other vaporizers typically have a battery with only half the capacity of the Flowermate AURA. That’s why the Flowermate AURA can last longer than most vaporizers in the same price range. The long battery life is also helped by the fact that the Flowermate AURA uses conduction heating which does not demand too much power from the battery. Sure, it takes more to heat botanicals compared to wax concentrates but conduction vaporizers require a little less power than vaporizers that use convection heating technology. Other vaporizers will usually last an average of 45 minutes but the Flowermate AURA boasts a run time of about 2 hours. This gives you more than enough time to consume your favorite materials whether its wax concentrates or dry herb strains.
The battery supports the Flowermate AURA’s heating element made out of ceramic which allows the Flowermate AURA to yield vapors that are clean and smooth especially on the lower temperature levels. The use of ceramic allows the Flowermate AURA to facilitate a low and slow heating of your materials letting them get heated without reaching the point of combustion. What this means for your herbs and wax concentrates is that the active ingredients they have to offer can easily be extracted without letting them burn. That’s because ceramic is an inert material and does not easily conduct heat unlike quartz or titanium and here you can see the power of the Flowermate AURA’s battery because it can deliver significant sessions despite the ceramic-based chamber. That said, it can be a great device that will not let you down when you’re out and about consuming your favorite materials.
The Flowermate AURA is a multi-purpose vaporizer that can accommodate various types of materials. When using the Flowermate AURA as an herb vaporizer, you simply need to load the ceramic chamber with your ground botanical plant matter and you’re good to go. However, if you want to use the Flowermate AURA with wax concentrates or with oils, you have to utilize its pod system allowing you to switch materials with the use of dedicated pod-like containers. There’s one that can be used of oils ana extracts and you have to remove the herbs and slide the pod in the chamber with the materials in it so you can switch functionality. It may effectively create separation in the variety of the materials you use allowing you to easily preserve the quality of each materials type. However, when you’re out and about, this feature can actually be a hassle. We found that you will have to carry a separate bag or container where you are to keep your materials so you can effectively use this feature. Otherwise, it works great when you’re at home and want to switch between material types allowing you to get the best of both worlds. You should take this factor into consideration so you can make the most out of your experience with the Flowermate AURA.
Overall, it’s a great device with relatively great features to boot, not to mention that it’s affordable compared to other multi-functional devices in the same category. As long as you don’t mind a small learning curve, the Flowermate AURA can be a great device to invest in.
