The Flowermate Slick is one of the slickest dry herb vaporizers in Flowermate’s lineup. The Flowermate Slick is a small and compact dry herb vaporizer that allows you to vaporize your select botanical blends almost anywhere you are. The Flowermate Slick uses some of the best components available on the market which not only improves the build quality of the unit but also ensures that your materials are vaporized without any of these components leaving any weird smell or taste on your vapor. The Flowermate Slick isn’t only slick but is also a vaporizer that can deliver some of the best-tasting vapors you’ll get from a portable unit. The entire device is powered by a rechargeable and replaceable 2500mAh battery that does not only give you long sessions in between charges but also alows you to take portability to a whole new level. The battery gives life to the Flowermate Slick’s hybrid heating system that uses the power of both conduction and convection heating that allows your ground botanicals to be heated without reaching the point of combustion. Getting the benefits of both conduction heating and convection heating makes consuming your favorite herbs more interesting. This heating technology is driven by a preset temperature setting allowing you to easily select and toggle through different temperature levels so you can enjoy various results from your herbs. Lastly, to help preserve the quality of the herbs being vaporized, the Flowermate Slick uses a borosilicate glass mouthpiece that lets you inhale from a mouthpiece that faithfully maintains the natural taste and aroma of your materials. All that and more is housed in a laminated carbon fiber housing that effectively protects the Flowermate Slick and all of the technology that makes the Flowermate Slick a device worth checking out.
That said, the Flowermate Slick is not going to be the portable dry herb vaporizers most advanced and experienced consumers are going to look out for. Its preset temperature profiles make it so that the amount of customization and personalization you get out of it is fairly limited. Compared to one that uses precision temperature control that lets you dial down on your sessions to the smallest detail, preset temperature levels will only allow you to choose between three settings. While this can be considered as a great entry-level unit, it may not satisfy the needs of those looking for more. So, if you’re on the same boat our detailed review of the Flowermate Slick can help you make a better decision when it comes to making an informed decision in buying your next vaporizer. Here, we’ll talk about some of the Flowermate Slick’s relevant features so you can tell whether or not it’s going to be the right vaporizer for you. We’ll also look into some real-life advantages and disadvantages of using the Flowermate Slick as a daily driver or as an occasional vaporizer you can use to medicate. So, without further ado, let’s begin this review.
The Flowermate Slick is outfitted with a dependable battery that runs at 2500mAh capacity. This much longevity means that you can enjoy long vaping sessions in between charges. That said, you won’t always have to look for the nearest power outlet when you fire up the Flowermate Slick. The higher the battery capacity means it can hold more power and can last longer. During our testing, we were able to squeeze in an average of 10 to 12 sessions in a single charge. That’s more than enough for a single day of consuming your favorite dry herb strains. For beginners who are just starting to build their tolerance to the psychoactive effects of their select botanical plant matter or those who are using medicinal herbs to help them deal with their medical condition, this much battery capacity can yield more than enough for a full day of vaping. On the other hand, advanced and experienced consumers who are used to the psychedelic effects they get from their herbs may find that they will have to recharge the Flowermate Slick at the very least one or two times depending on how hard they consume or how frequent they vape. Furthermore, the battery used in the Flowermate Slick is removable. For those who have been using portable vaporizers, removable batteries are a Godsend.
First, removable batteries let you take your sessions to places you wouldn’t imagine was possible. You can take the Flowermate Slick with you during your travels when in remote places where there’s no power source available. As long as you plan your sessions ahead and you bring enough replacement batteries, you can literally use the Flowermate Slick without having to recharge the battery or plug the Flowermate Slick in a single time. All you need to do is to swap out used and depleted batteries in exchange for ones that are fully charged. Next, having a vaporizer with replaceable batteries means that you can extend the longevity of the device and get to enjoy your Flowermate Slick more compared to those that have integrated batteries. That’s because batteries in general have a predetermined lifespan. They are measured on the charge cycles the battery undergoes so, the more the batteries go through recharge and discharge cycles, the weaker they become and the less charge they hold. If you’re using a vaporizer with an integrated battery, you will have to replace the entire unit while one that has removable batteries lets you just replace the batteries instead.
However, there’s a downside to this feature. In order for you to really take the full advantage of using this feature, you will have to spend more money so you can buy additional batteries and probably an external battery charger. That said, if you’re okay with having to spend more money in the Flowermate Slick, it can prove to be a good investment.
The Flowermate Slick is also outfitted with preset temperature settings. This means that instead of having to manually select the temperature level yourself, you can easily toggle through a predetermined suite of temperature profiles that have been selected by the manufacturer. Now, these temperature profiles are typically carefully selected by developers and vaporizer manufacturers and are fine-tuned to help you get specific results. The Flowermate Slick is outfitted with three temperature settings, each designed and engineered to give specific effects from your favorite dry herb strains. The lower temperature level runs at 385° F allowing you to reap the curative benefits of your herbs. The lower temperature level also works great when it comes to extracting the more delicate active ingredients from your herbs including the flavonoids and the terpenes that give your herb its natural flavor and aroma. On the other hand, the medium setting allows you to enjoy a balanced high with the effects of your select dry herb strains distributed evenly with both flavor and potency in it. Lastly, the higher temperature levels make for a great choice for when you want to enjoy the potency that your select botanical plant matter has to offer. These temperature levels give you a good distinction of the effect you get either you’re looking for some rest and relaxation or for some deep sleep and meditation.
Another benefit of using these preset profiles is that it eliminates any confusion when it comes to getting the results you want. That’s because you’re simply going to select from 3 options instead of having to select from a wide temperature range. This makes the Flowermate Slick a device that’s ideal not beginners because it eliminates confusion and room for error when heating your select dry herb strains. Beginners will typically lean towards a device that can make them feel comfortable in vaping which will usually be a device that has a single heat setting or one that has preset temperature profiles like the Flowermate Slick. That said, if you’re someone looking for a good entry-level portable dry herb vaporizer, the Flowermate Slick might just as well be the device you’re looking for.
The Flowermate Slick is outfitted with a hybrid heating system that uses both the elements of conduction and convection heating. A quick explanation; conduction heating uses the heat coming from a hot or a heated surface while convection heating uses the power of hot air. Having he combination of both convection and conduction heating brings out the best in your materials and can facilitate the production of flavorful and potent vapors that does not have any trace of combustion.
The Flowermate Slick’s hybrid heating system works by using a ceramic herb chamber where your ground materials are to be held and then blasting it with hot air which also warms up the actual chamber. The heated air effectively permeates every nook and cranny of the ground material while the heated walls of the ceramic chamber support and accentuates the temperature of the herbs. Together they create the ideal environment that can bring out the best in your materials and have been the choice for the heating technology in the Flowermate Slick.
