Contrary to most Flowermate models, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S features only preset temperature controls which kind of makes this mini model a user-friendly version of its original predecessor. The Flowermate Mini V5.0S is outfitted with three preset temperature settings allowing you to get different effects from your select materials with as little effort as possible. This makes the Flowermate Mini V5.0S a device that’s easier to get comfortable with especially for beginners. That said, if you’ve ever experienced using a vape pen before, wielding the Flowermate Mini V5.0S is not going to be a problem. The Flowermate Mini V5.0S gives you a series of low, medium, and high settings, pretty much like what most vape pens and dab pens offer. The lower temperature setting runs at around 385° F giving you a nice low and slow heating that can extract the more sensitive cannabinoids and active ingredients in both your ground botanical plant matter and wax concentrates. These include the flavonoids and the terpenes in your extracts with the additional trichomes native to your flowers and other dry herb strains which give your materials their natural taste and aroma. Taking the preset profiles up a notch takes you to the medium setting which runs at 400° F allowing you to enjoy a perfect balance between flavor and potency. The middle temp setting facilitates the right environment to activate both the mild active ingredients and the stronger and potent ones to give you a balanced high. Lastly, cranking the preset temperature level to the highest setting gives you a temperature range of around 415° F. This temp setting is more geared for the extraction of the psychoactive compounds in your herbs and wax concentrates so you can enjoy a strong head high that can really get you down.
Having these preset temperature profiles on the ready and can be deployed with just a few clicks of a button allows you to easily select from a limited set of options to get effects for when you want some rest and relaxation, deep sleep and meditation, or sessions that will knock you off your socks. Instead of having to sit there and tinker with “+” and “-” buttons and having to decide whether it’s the right setting for your herbs and wax concentrates when using precision vaporizers, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S’s preset temperature profiles just lets you decide between a low, medium, and high setting. This makes the Flowermate Mini V5.0S more appealing to beginners and novices who are just getting a feel of what their select materials interact to exposure from different temperature levels. That said, some advanced consumers may feel a little uncomfortable using the Flowermate Mini V5.0S as their main rig because it does not give them as much personalization and customization as a precision vaporizer would although it would make a good side vaporizer that one can use when they’re out and about. So, if you’re a beginner looking for a device that lets you enjoy the benefits of your materials in a simple and straightforward way, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S will make for a great vaping companion. However, if you’re one who requires more precision and accuracy, you’d be better off checking out Flowermate’s precision vaporizers.
The Flowermate Mini V5.0S is outfitted with a beefy 2600mAh battery that does not only last longer than its competitors but also doubles as a power bank to juice up compatible electronics in emergency situations. The Flowermate Mini V5.0S is so dependable that it can give you lasting sessions in between charges, the kind that lasts for about 2 hours of continuous use. Now that’s given that the Flowermate Mini V5.0S uses a ceramic herb chamber which takes longer to heat compared to other heating elements that are better conductor of heat. The impressive battery also works well with the preset temperature profiles giving us an average of an hour and 50 minutes of vape time when used with the high temperature settings and even longer when you stay at the lower settings. The Flowermate Mini V5.0S’s battery will definitely give you a run for your money giving your both performance and longevity which is what most consumers would look for when using a portable vaporizer. But wait, there’s more. The Flowermate Mini V5.0S can also be used to charge other small electronics making it a great device to have on the ready when you’re vaping on-the-go. You can recharge phones and even other vaporizers running low on battery by plugging them on the Flowermate Mini V5.0S making it a battery that keeps on giving.
The battery can be recharged using its inclusive micro-USB charging cable allowing you to recharge your Flowermate Mini V5.0S almost anytime and almost anywhere you are. Unlike other batteries that use dated charging technology, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S gives you lots of options when charging so you don’t always have to look for a wall outlet every time you use the Flowermate Mini V5.0S when you’re out and about. If you like to consume your favorite materials while on your feet or if you’re the kind who carries a sundry of gadgetries, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S will be a great choice.
The Flowermate Mini V5.0S, like other Flowermate devices, are known for their pure vapor production. That’s because the brand uses only the best materials in building their devices from the ground up. And while the Flowermate Mini V5.0S is outfitted with a conduction heating oven, it still able to yield clean vapors thanks to its ceramic chamber. For the uninitiated, ceramic is a component that does not easily transfer heat. This allows the Flowermate Mini V5.0S to start with a low temperature level before it ramps up heat instead of having to immediately blast your herbs and wax concentrates with high temperature levels that could otherwise destroy some of the more delicate active ingredients your select herbs and wax concentrates have to offer.
Another component that helps the Flowermate Mini V5.0S faithfully preserve the overall quality of your materials is its borosilicate glass mouthpiece. For those who do not know, borosilicate glass is used mostly in laboratories and in the medical field because of its ability to withstand heat. Because of that, it does not have any immediate reaction to the warm vapors either chemical or physical that’s why it does not leave any weird smell and taste to your vapors. Overall, the Flowermate Mini V5.0S is a device that offers purity and smoothness despite its small and compact form factor.
