The Flowermate V5.0S Pro is the pro version of the entry-level vaporizer, the Flowermate V5.0S. On that not, you are to expect some glaring similarities with the Flowermate V5.0S Pro and its basic version, but it also has some unique features making it worthy of its “pro” badge. The Flowermate V5.0S Pro is another product of Flowermate, one of the go-to brands for consumers looking for budget-friendly devices that perform like other vaporizers twice its price. And the Flowermate V5.0S Pro is a great example of how Flowermate gives other overpriced vaporizers a run for their money. The Flowermate V5.0S Pro uses a beefy 2600mAh of battery which gives it the run time of about 2 and a half hours. That’s twice the battery life even when compared to vaporizers twice its price. That same battery is used to power up the precision temperature control feature which takes the Flowermate V5.0S Pro to its “pro” status as he basic kit only has preset temperature settings. This allows you to enjoy more customization and personalization when it comes to your sessions. You will also be able to stay in the know of what’s happening during your sessions as the running temperature level and other relevant features are shown in its crisp OLED display screen. This allows you to monitor your sessions to further the element of accuracy and precision in your sessions. To wrap it all up, the Flowermate V5.0S Pro is housed in an anodized aluminum shell which gives it its light weight and durable body.
That said, the Flowermate V5.0S Pro may be viewed by most consumers as a vaporizer best suited for advanced and experienced vapers. The addition of the precision controls makes the Flowermate V5.0S Pro a device that requires some level of understanding when it comes to heating your herbs and wax concentrates. Furthermore, the Flowermate V5.0S Pro uses mostly the brand’s conduction heating technology and not its full-convection build. That said, if you’re having the same thoughts as some consumers and are feeling right on the fence about purchasing the Flowermate V5.0S Pro, this review is for you. We’ll look into some of the features of the Flowermate V5.0S Pro and talk about how it fares when used as a daily driver or as a side vaporizer. We’ll discuss key pros and cons so you can make a better decision when making your purchase whether it’s your first vaporizer or a worthy addition to your growing collection. So, without further ado, let’s get on in with the Flowermate V5.0S Pro review.
As we’ve mentioned earlier, the Flowermate V5.0S Pro uses precision temperature control settings and is what makes it the pro version of the basic unit. With precision temperature controls, you’ll have more freedom when to keep the settings high or low depending on your need and preference. That said, the Flowermate V5.0S Pro does more than give you random effects from a preset spectrum. It allows you to dial down on your sessions in small increments so you can feel the effects of even the most subtle change in temperature. This means that you get to experience all the changes in temperature level and how your dry herb strains and your wax concentrates react to it. The Flowermate V5.0S Pro lets you enjoy sessions from the relaxing and restful to the ones that induce deep sleep and meditation.
The is outfitted with a wide temperature range of about 104° F to 446° F or 40° C to 230° C. This gives you a good spread of the temperature profiles from the ones that release the delicate active ingredients to the ones that really get to you. This allows you to customize your sessions depending on what type of consumer you see yourself. Those who use their vaporizers to consume medical cannabis typically stay at around 356° F or 180° C which is the boiling point for CBD – the curative benefits of cannabis. On the other hand, if you’re looking to reap the psychoactive effects of cannabis, the best temperature level to stay at is around 428° F or 220° C. This allows the Flowermate V5.0S Pro to release and extract the potent THC active ingredients from both the herbs and the wax concentrates which are responsible for the psychedelic upshot of your botanicals and your extracts.
And while Flowermate V5.0S Pro’s precision temperature controls gives you the freedom to take full control of your sessions, it may cause some level of confusion especially for beginners who are still yet to find out the compatibility of their materials to particular temperature levels but if you’re a beginner who is not afraid of some learning curve, then the Flowermate V5.0S Pro might just prove to be a device worth investing in.
The Flowermate V5.0S Pro is outfitted with an integrated battery rated at 2600mAh capacity. What this means for the average consumer is that there’s very little chances that you will have to look for the nearest power outlet to plug your Flowermate V5.0S Pro in. As we’ve mentioned earlier, the Flowermate V5.0S Pro boasts a runtime of 2 hours and 30 minutes giving beginners or at least those who have lower tolerance to their material’s psychoactive effects a full day of vaping. The Flowermate V5.0S Pro can certainly take on short sessions and a chamber packed with small doses of herbs or wax concentrates. On the other hand, advanced consumers and experienced veterans may find that they need to plug the Flowermate V5.0S Pro in at least once. The aforementioned temperature settings also play a part in the longevity of the battery as staying in the lower temperature ranges allows you to extend the device’s battery life while keeping your sessions at the higher temperature range may drain the battery faster. And if you find it more than a hassle to carry a large proprietary charger that the basic kit offered, the Flowermate V5.0S Pro now uses USB charging technology so you’ll have better options in juicing up the battery should you run out of power when you’re out and about.
Fitting the Flowermate V5.0S Pro with a lasting 2600mAh battery was a great move in the manufacturer’s part. However, the only downside of having the Flowermate V5.0S Pro packed with such a battery is that it’s integrated with the device unlike other Flowermate models that have removable batteries, like the Flowermate Uno. That said, the Flowermate V5.0S Pro offers pass-through charging technology which does make up for its lack of a removable battery. If you’re the kind of consumer who typically uses your vaporizer in an urban environment, then the Flowermate V5.0S Pro will make for a great addition to your arsenal as you can take full advantage of its pass-through charging features with the widespread availability of power outlets and USB ports. Although if you’re the backpacking kind of outdoorsy consumer, then you might be better off using a device that can allow you to maximize your battery life, like the aforementioned vaporizer with a removable battery.
The Flowermate V5.0S Pro was a device that was designed and engineered with the on-the-go consumer in mind. One of the first features that makes the Flowermate V5.0S Pro a perfect on-the-go vaporizer is the discreet OLED screen. While it’s made to be crisp and clear, the screen installed on the unit was of the right size so as not to take up all the real estate and so as to keep it stealthy and discreet. Unlike the display screens you see on e-juice and e-liquid vaporizers that almost take up the entirety of the device, the one outfitted on the Flowermate V5.0S Pro lets you still monitor your sessions without blasting your face with a bright screen light. This allows you to use the Flowermate V5.0S Pro in places and in situations you would otherwise be thinking twice about using a vaporizer. That said, the Flowermate V5.0S Pro also lets you carry it in places you wouldn’t normally bring a vaporizer. The anodized aluminum housing of the Flowermate V5.0S Pro lets it enjoy a more durable build without the unnecessary weight. That said, you can bring the Flowermate V5.0S Pro with you almost anywhere you go as you can easily slide it in your bag, your pocket, and even in the palm of your hands. The anodized aluminum housing does not only protect the internal circuitry of the Flowermate V5.0S Pro but also the borosilicate glass mouthpiece so you can still experience the benefits of using inert components like borosilicate glass while still enjoying a vaporizer with a small and compact form factor.
Overall, the Flowermate V5.0S Pro is a great device and a great upgrade from the basic Flowermate V5.0S. That said, beginners will have to go through some level of learning curve in order to maximize their experience with the Flowermate V5.0S Pro. So, if you don’t mind all these, you might find the Flowermate V5.0S Pro worth your time and your money.
