The mini-me version of the larger, more capable Flowermate V5.0X, the Flowermate V5.0X Mini is a more portable iteration that targets consumers who are on-the-go and are always out and about. The Flowermate V5.0X Mini boasts similar functionalities like its bigger brother but is packed in a vaporizer with a small and compact form factor. Let’s get straight to the measurements; the Flowermate V5.0X Mini stands only at around over 3 inches tall and has a width of about under 2 inches making it easily pocketable. Furthermore, consumers love this mini version because of its ability to deliver discreet vapor production so you can use it almost anywhere you go. The Flowermate V5.0X Mini is backed by a decent 1800mAh battery that allows for some decent sessions in between charges. You’ll be able to squeeze in a few sessions before the Flowermate V5.0X Mini calls for a recharge which can be done using an inclusive USB charging cable. That said, it can still juice up other devices through its power bank functionality. Like its predecessor, the Flowermate V5.0X Mini also offers preset temperature settings allowing you to find your sweet spot using the temperature settings the device has to offer. Each of the preset temperature settings is represented by a subtle LED light which adds up to its level of stealth and discreetness. The preset temperature profiles work well with the Flowermate V5.0X Mini’s conduction heating system that allows the device to quickly heat your select materials when you’re out and about.
However, others might not actually feel that the Flowermate V5.0X Mini is the right vaporizer for them. The limitations set by its preset temperature settings makes it a less viable vaporizer for experienced and advanced consumers and more of like an entry-level vaporizer for beginners. Furthermore, the reduced battery capacity from its predecessor makes it less of an impeccable option for those who spend most of their time out and about. So, if you’re considering getting yourself the Flowermate V5.0X Mini but are on the fence because of what we’ve just mentioned, this product review is for you. Here, we’ll talk some of the relevant features of the Flowermate V5.0X Mini so you’ll be able to make an informed decision whether or not to splash the cash or to give the Flowermate V5.0X Mini a pass. Knowing what features the Flowermate V5.0X Mini has to bring in to the table will let you decide for yourself whether or not the Flowermate V5.0X Mini is the right vaporizer that suits your needs and your preferences. We get that a lot of reviews made online are paid promotional adverts, so we’re giving you some real-life pros and cons of using the Flowermate V5.0X Mini so you’ll be able to make a better decision before you decide to invest in it. So, let’s not waste any more time and get right on with the review.
Alright, to put things into perspective, the Flowermate V5.0X Mini is a vaporizer designed with the on-the-go consumer in mind – hence the smaller and more compact build. Compared to its larger brother, the Flowermate V5.0X, the mini version makes for a device that’s easier to take with you whether you’re simply roaming around town or if you’re packing bags for a trip. This small dimension is made possible thanks to the reduced battery capacity of the Flowermate V5.0X Mini. For the uninitiated, the OG V5.0X packs a beefy 2600mAh battery capacity that’s twice as half as the Flowermate V5.0X Mini. That said, the decreased battery capacity means you’ll have to compromise which we believe is a fair deal for how lightweight and portable the Flowermate V5.0X Mini is.
A reduced battery means a decreased runtime which we’re still happy to report that we got an average of a bout 2 hours of use with during our testing phase. As always, the ones that would benefit from it the most are beginners who can still make do and are still satisfied with short sessions packed with smaller doses of herbs or smaller amounts of wax concentrates as the 2-hour battery life of the Flowermate V5.0X Mini can be stretched in a day’s session. That said, experienced and advanced consumers who tend to be heavier and more frequent consumers might need to plug the Flowermate V5.0X Mini in at least once or twice before calling it a day. Of course, the temperature level you set the Flowermate V5.0X Mini on will also affect battery life.
The Flowermate V5.0X Mini also has some unique features battery-wise. Like the larger Flowermate V5.0X it was derived from, the Flowermate V5.0X Mini also doubles as a power bank although we feel like having that feeature was more appropriate with the Flowermate V5.0X because of its 2600mAh battery capacity. Nevertheless, it’s still good to know that you can draw power from the Flowermate V5.0X Mini should you need to give your smartphone a quick charge during emergency situations. That said, we never had to use this function as keeping the Flowermate V5.0X Mini on was more important than juicing up our smartphones.
As we briefly covered above, the Flowermate V5.0X Mini uses the power of conduction to vaporize your herbs and wax concentrates. Conduction heating involves the use of the heat coming directly from the heating element, or in this case, the walls of the Flowermate V5.0X Mini’s ceramic herb chamber. Compared to convection heating, conduction offers faster heating time which contributes to its design as an on-the-go vaporizer made for on-the-go consumers. Instead of having to wait for minutes before your herbs and wax concentrates gets vaporized, the Flowermate V5.0X Mini gets ready in as fast as 30 seconds – and that’s even with a ceramic herb chamber. This makes the Flowermate V5.0X Mini a vaporizer suited not only for recreational consumers who like to bring their sessions to places they go but also for medicating patients who can’t afford to spend several minutes before they reap the medicinal benefits of their select materials.
Speaking of which…
The Flowermate V5.0X Mini’s conduction heating technology pairs well with the on-board preset temperature settings. By setting the temperature profile to the first and the second temperature preset, one can reap the medicinal advantages of consuming their select ground botanical plant matter or its more potent waxy derivative. That’s because the boiling point of CBD or cannabidiol, the active ingredient responsible for cannabis’ healing properties is at around 356° F or 180° C which is right about the first to the second preset on the Flowermate V5.0X Mini. What this means for medicating patients is that they immediately get to experience relief from pain, swelling, and alleviation from their medical conditions with the combination of the Flowermate V5.0X Mini’s preset temperature controls as well as its conduction heating technology.
So, if you’re someone who falls in this category, the Flowermate V5.0X Mini might prove to be a device worth checking out.
Alright, we know that when there’s talk about conduction heating technology, one will have to question the overall vapor quality a vapor produces. That’s because conduction vaporizers are typically prone to combustion because the ground materials and the wax concentrates are directly exposed to the heating element. That said, the Flowermate V5.0X Mini was outfitted with a ceramic chamber that ensures you get clean and smooth vapor production. That’s because ceramic is an inert component and does not burn as fast as other heating elements like quartz or titanium. That said, your herbs and wax concentrates get heated at a steady and progressive pace without abruptly exposing them to a blast of extreme temperature level that may cause the materials being heated to combust. By using a ceramic-based chamber to house both the herbs and the wax concentrates, the Flowermate V5.0X Mini allows for the effective vaporization of your materials – all without reaching the point of combustion.
Moreover, the Flowermate V5.0X Mini boasts a few features that make it a great device to help achieve clean and smooth vapor production. The Flowermate V5.0X Mini comes with a water pipe adapter right out of the box. This inclusive accessory lets you introduce the elements of water filtration and moisture conditioning to your sessions. What this means is that you can use your Flowermate V5.0X Mini in conjunction with a wide variety of water pipes adding the benefit of using them to your advantage. This means that the water in your bong can help provide some level of purification skimming out a decent amount of irritants and impurities. The water can also smoothen the vapors as it cools it down should the vapor be warm enough for your lungs and your throat. Some water pipes even have ice catchers allowing you to put ice in it so you literally get cool vapor production. Because the Flowermate V5.0X Mini is made compatible with a wide variety of water pipes thanks to its water pipe adapter, you can enjoy these subtle variations in your sessions which does not only make it cleaner and safer but can also make it more interesting.
