The pro version of the Flowermate Mini V5.0S, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro offers more room for personalization and customization allowing consumers to enjoy precision and accuracy in their sessions. The Flowermate brand has always been the go-to for consumers looking for an affordable vaporizer that performs like devices twice (or sometimes even thrice) its price. That said, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro can definitely take your on-the-go sessions to a whole new level. The pro version basically gives you everything the Flowermate Mini V5.0S vaporizer can with a few new features making it a befitting upgrade from its entry-level version. As we’ve mentioned above, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro is equipped with precision temperature control allowing you to dial down on your sessions down to the smallest detail as its temperature control setting allows you to change the temperature level in small increments. This way you can enjoy the subtle changes your wax concentrates and dry herb strains have to offer. The temperature levels are conveniently displayed on the small but crisp LED display that allows you to keep yourself informed as it also displays other relevant information when you use it. Other than some pro features, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro is still a V5.0S down its core. The Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro offers dual-use and can vaporize both dry herbs and wax concentrates in pod-like components allowing you to swap materials in and out either when you’re using it at home or when you’re on-the-go. You also still get the same power bank functionality allowing you to juice up other compatible devices when you need to charge them in certain emergency situations.
However, despite the upgrades, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro might not be everybody’s favorite portable unit. The use of precision temperature control makes the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro a little more geared for advanced consumers who are knowledgeable in terms of temperature and how each subtle change affects the quality of the active ingredients released and extracted from your botanicals and wax concentrates. Furthermore, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro now carries a smaller battery capacity at 1800mAh which may cause other consumers to think back about investing in the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro. If you’re in the same situation and are on the fence about making a purchase, this detailed and in-depth vaporizer review is for you. Here’ we’ll talk about some of the best features the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro has to offer and how does it fare when used as a daily driver or an occasional portable vaporizer. That said, this will help you get to know the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro better and make a likewise better and informed decision in making a purchase. So, if you’re thinking twice about splashing that cash, let’s begin looking at what the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro has to bring to the table.
First, let’s look at the obvious difference between the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro and its basic version. The Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro now offers precision temperature controls allowing you to change the setting in small increments so you can fine-tune your sessions depending on your needs and to your preference. Instead of having to bear with a preset temperature profile set by the manufacturer, the pro versions let you tinker with the temperature setting yourself. For consumers who have a particular inclination when it comes to how their herbs and wax concentrates are heated, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro’s precision temperature settings make for a great feature. This lets you get to the lowest low and the highest high you can squeeze from your materials. The Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro offers a wide range of temperature selection ranging from 104° F to 446° compared to the three preset temperature levels you get from the basic mini version. The lower temperature levels can help extract the more subtle active ingredients that are only released into the vapor when exposed to low temperature settings. That’s why you have the power to extract more flavonoids and terpenes as well as the trichomes that are found on your select buds and botanical flowers. On the other hand, potent THC-heavy cannabinoids can be extracted from your wax or weed when you select the higher temperature settings the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro’s precise temperature controls have to offer. Typically, precision vaporizers are large and bulky as they need a large body to house the technology to offer accurate temperature reading, that’s why older vaporizers will only have precision control on desktop units. The Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro proves that it doesn’t always have to be the case.
Despite the benefits of using precision controls, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro is not going to be everybody’s cup of tea. Beginners usually prefer vaporizers with a single heat setting or one that uses preset temperature controls. Not only are these types of vaporizers easy to operate, but there’s also less chances that you make mistakes and waste herbs and wax concentrates with a vaporizer that offers just three options. That’s why some consumers see precision control vapes like the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro as somewhat more of a device geared for advanced and experienced users rather than for beginners. On that note, if you’re someone who is not afraid of exploring and does not mind a bito or a learning curve, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro might just suit you well. Otherwise, you may have a better experience with the basic version before you upgrade to the pro.
Compared to the beefy 2600mAh battery of the basic kit, the pro version seems like at a disadvantage. It does carry a little less under the hood but we’re thinking that it had to give way to the precision temperature control of the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro. That said, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro’s battery still makes for a decent one allowing you to pull off several sessions in between charges. The smaller battery size means shorter sessions so you shouldn’t expect the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro to put out a 2-hour long performance, the best we were able to squeeze in from the 1800mAh battery is about 75 minutes of use switching in between low and high temperature levels which is the common use behavior for many consumers. And even if the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro only carries relatively half the battery capacity of the basic version, it makes up for the smaller capacity by outfitting the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro with pass-through charging capabilities. What this basically means is that you can still use it while plugged in and charging, pretty much like a desktop vaporizer which allows you to wield unlimited power from your power outlet for longer grinding sessions. Whether the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro is used on-the-go or plugged in on an outlet, it automatically shuts down after five minutes to help preserve battery life and help maintain the temperature of the actual unit. And of course, you can still use it as a power bank to juice up other gadgets when you need to, although we reckon it’s not going to be what you’ll be bringing the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro for because you’d want to preserve its battery life rather than use it to jack up your smartphone or your tablet.
The Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro’s features are advanced no doubt but the pass-through charging is only useful when there’s a nearby outlet. That said, you can’t expect the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro to give you the battery life you need for sessions on the beach or for when you want to vape during your hikes and all. You would have to plan your sessions carefully so you don’t waste the battery life the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro has to offer. It works well in urban situations but may not be the best when you’re the kind of outdoorsy consumer.
Aside from the aforementioned features, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro has a few tricks up its sleeve for those willing to invest in a pro version vaporizer. One of which is the OLED display screen which is kind of a must when you’re running a precision vaporizer. The OLED screen lets you see the running temperature level, the battery life, as well as a notification icon which lets you know when your materials are ready for vaping. The good thing about the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro’s OLED screen is that it was made to fit the smaller body of the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro. Because it’s slim, it makes for a discreet way of monitoring your sessions. Another feature is the removable pod-like cases where you load your wax concentrates and dry herb strains. That said, we found that the pods limit the loading capacity of the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro when using it for ground botanical plant matter. You can however load your herbs directly on the ceramic chamber, but be sure to use the pods when using wax.
The Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro proves that it’s both versatile and functional although the reduced battery life is honestly a letdown. That said, if you’re the kind of consumer who likes to run around town with a device that can keep up, you might want to stick to the basic kit. However, if what you want is added features and are willing to compensate with a shorter battery life, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S Pro might actually be worth getting.
