Talk about vaporizers that aim to redefine the way we see vaporization. The Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 is a unique device that’s designed and engineered for botanical dry herb consumption. At the time of its release, the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 was outfitted with features that was ahead of its time. Nowadays, eRigs with integrated water filtration systems are all the rage. The Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 have gone that path years before the first eRig was released. That said, it’s safe to say that it somehow pioneered self-contained or integrated water filtration systems on portable devices. It also offered quite the powerful battery rated at around 2000mAh allowing you to enjoy longer vaping sessions with substantial vapor production in between charges. It also uses an oven made out of porcelain, quite a new technology in dry herb vaporization technology which produces clean and smooth vapor production. To top it all off, the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 is outfitted with 5 preset temperature settings that allow further customization and personalization from a portable device.
The Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 seems like an odd-looking device, especially because it caters to the vaporization of select botanical dry herb strains. Nevertheless, this unique design and engineering is what put the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 on the map and what made it such a distinct device that many manufacturers find it hard to replicate it. If you’re on the fence about investing in a dry herb vaporizer as unique as the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9, check out our detailed review of its features. Here you’ll find the pros and cons of using the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 as a daily driver or as an occasional vaporizer. So, if you want to know more about how this device can be your next new vaping companion, let’s start the review.
As we’ve briefly covered above, the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 is equipped with a powerful 2000mAh battery. Why the engineers and developers made it so that the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 packed this much power is quite understandable. This portable device was designed for dry herb use. And for the uninitiated, heating and vaping botanical plant matter demands more power than wax vaporizers. That’s because dry herbs don’t vaporize as fast as wax concentrates and the heating elements used in herb vaporizers are not as good a conductor and catalyst for vaporization as those used in wax vaporizers. As an example, the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 is outfitted with a porcelain-based heating element. Porcelain, like ceramic, is not a good conductor of heat nor of energy and for that matter, it’s mainly used as tea cups. Compared to quartz and other heating elements used on most wax vaporizers, porcelain does a poor job. Nevertheless, for that same reason, porcelain makes for a great chamber material for the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9. See, this vaporizer was intended to vaporize your select botanicals without reaching the point of combustion and having an herb chamber that does not heat up abruptly makes for an ideal component. The porcelain-based chamber allows for a low and slow means of heating your select dry herb strains and thus demands more power than the typical heating element. The 2000mAh battery pack allows for ample power production and power delivery so you will never find yourself looking for a power outlet the first few minutes you’ve started your session.
The battery is also outfitted with micro-USB technology. We’ll admit it’s dated but nevertheless reliable. Most of today’s devices use USB-C technology, but the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 was released years before USB-C was even a standard. That said, our only gripe is that the battery still has a dated charging technology which we hope will be addressed when Cloudious9 decides to give the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 an update.
The Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 is outfitted with an herb chamber that’s made out of high-grade porcelain. By doing so, the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 allows the natural trichomes, flavonoids, and terpenes to be heated and extracted into the vapor as opposed to it being destroyed when your herbs are exposed to extreme and sudden heat. This results to tastier vapors that retain the natural taste and aroma of the herbs making the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 the go-to vaporizer for herb connoisseurs who live for the experience of enjoying all the benefits their select plant matter has to offer. This makes the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 a device that’s not only suited for recreational consumers but also for individuals who consume their select botanical plant matter to medicate. This creates vapors that are clean and are easy on the lungs and vary rarely will you find yourself coughing after inhaling vapors from the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9. The porcelain chamber works well with the long vapor path and the aforementioned water filtration system makes it so that the vapors you get from the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 are the best the industry has to offer.
The Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 also harnesses the power of porcelain to help faithfully preserve the overall quality of the vapors. While cheap dry herb vapes can sometimes make the vapors smell and taste like metal or plastic, the porcelain chamber ensures that the smell and aroma of your herbs are preserved. And while it may take a while to ramp up, the payoff is definitely worth the wait.
The Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 also boasts premium heat settings which allows consumers to select an ideal temperature range for their dry herb strains depending on their needs and preferences. The lower temperature settings offer flavorful vapor production while the higher temperature profiles are fine-tuned to extract the potent active ingredients from your herbs. The five temperature settings are as follows:
Now, as opposed to most dry herb vaporizers on the market that have precision temperature control, the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 has preset temperature profiles that’s similar to wax rigs. However, this makes the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 more user-friendly compared to the somewhat daunting effect other dry herb vapes with precision temperature settings have on beginners. These preset temperaure profiles make it easy for anyone to find their sweet spot. No need to constantly fondle with the device, you simply select a temperature profile you’re most comfortable with and you’ll be good to go. The temperature profiles can be adjusted with just a few clicks of a button which also makes changing the temperature settings quite easy and straightforward.
The Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 boasts durable and reliable glass components. Because it’s got parts that are mainly made out of glass, the people behind the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 made it so that the glass components used in the device are of superior quality. The water container as well as the mouthpiece is made out of borosilicate glass. While it’s commonly seen in vaporizers, borosilicate glass is typically found on lab items as borosilicate glass is used on test tubes, beakers, and petri dishes used in laboratories. That’s because borosilicate glass offers high heat resistance and is slightly more durable than traditional glass. It won’t break as easily as a regular glass and is not as susceptible to thermal shock as the average glass. This is important because glass components of vaporizers are constantly subjected to changing temperature levels and constant cycles of heating and cooling as they are placed as close to the heating element as possible. You can expect the glass parts of the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 to last although they’re not technically indestructible and can break and shatter when you drop it.
The glass parts being of high quality also ensures that you won’t have any issues with the quality of the vapor especially because the actual mouthpiece is made of the same borosilicate glass component. As we’ve covered above, it won’t smell nor taste like metal or plastic as the inert properties of glass ensures the preservation of the qualities of your select materials in terms of flavor, aroma, and potency.
The Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 is housed in a body made out of space-grade anodized aluminum. This gives the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 a durable body while still reaping the benefits of having a lighter weight. This makes the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 a more portable device that you can carry around almost anywhere you go. It can surely withstand minor wear and tear and daily carrying activity but it won’t survive a decent fall. That said, the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 has a special carrying case made out of leather. Carrying the Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 in it simply makes you look like you’ve carrying a tumbler or a thermos which makes it somewhat inconspicuous when inside the aforementioned leather carrying case. However, when you pull it out of it, it will definitely turn some heads and solicit stares because it’s an unusual looking vaporizer.
The Hydrology9 by Cloudious9 is a great device to have, especially when you’re a consumer who spends the most of his time at home. Nevertheless, it can be a burden to carry with you when you’re out and about because of its eye-catching design.
