Looking for the best portable vape for shatter?
The SOURCE Slim XL Travel Kit proves that innovations have changed the game.
Even with all the advancements, burning questions remains the same. Questions like what’s the best portable vape for shatter? Well, we may have found the answer, and with the help of Tyler Lemco, we can dig a little deeper.
There comes a time in the life of a young cannabis connoisseur, when the classic dry flower medley isn’t producing the experience desired. With the burning of weed, flavors are masked and the desire to taste and enjoy the cannabis is usually overshadowed by the experience following or preceding it.
That’s when concentrates come into play. Marijuana concentrates are “cannabis-derived extracts that contain concentrated amounts of the psychoactive compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and a multiplicity of other cannabinoids and terpenes.” They have little to no dry flower quantity, which means the terpenes that produce the flavors in cannabis are isolated and magnified.
Most concentrates today are produced using modern technologies and extraction methods, however, they actually have a very extensive and established history. According to the pot-guide.com,
The first known uses of concentrated cannabis can be dated back to 10,000 B.C. in the Steppe Mountains of China.
Later there comes another time when hot knives and sticky-blunt wraps are simply not enough to appreciate all the terpenes, flavors, and aromas that come with concentrates. Most simply put, when our weed gadgets can’t handle the advancements in the industry, well, it’s time to invent new weed gadgets.
What makes the best portable vape for shatter?
Enter the SOURCE Slim XL Travel Kit, possibly the best portable vape for shatter.
We’ve been through the GPEN and the Micro-g pen. If you forgot, this was the campaign that famously includes Action Bronson and Snoop Dog in the marketing efforts. Those pens were cool when they came out, but a lot of that gloss was lost when you fired it up more than a couple times. They broke down quicker than a semi-refurbished DeLorean.
There needed to be a better way to vape concentrates on-the-go, and SOURCE Slim XL hit that nail right on the head.
Tyler Lemco Gives his take on the SOURCE Slim XL Travel Kit
Tyler: Hi, I’m Tyler Lemco! And this puppy is the SOURCE Slim XL travel kit.
In layman’s terms, it’s a vape you can travel with. It’s small, it’s compact. I kind of feel like James Bond when I’m using it because it has all these devices and mechanisms. More so,
It feels like that scene in Black Panther when his sister is showing him all the crazy technology devices.
But it’s not for fighting bad guys, it’s for getting high. Equally as important. It comes with two different atomizers, a large ceramic Terra Core coil, and a metal titanium quad coil. Both of these coils, you can swap out and attach to the battery pack. It feels like I’m putting a gun together when I take it out…not that I’ve ever done that.
It’s pretty simple to use too! It looks complicated, but it’s really not. You just put one piece, onto the battery piece, and then you are ready to get high. There’s basically just one button that manages all the functionalities. In order to turn it on, you press the main button five times. That might seem excessive, but it’s for your own safety.
Then, there are 3 different levels of heat. I just chose the lowest heat. After that, there is a medium and high. With lower heat, less THC and other terpenes are activated in the cannabis. Using the diagram below, you can see the different cannabinoids and terpenes activated with variance in heat.
Tyler: Well as that thing heat’s up, let’s look through what else in here.
What’s in the box?
The SOURCE Slim XL vape travel kit comes in a convenient travel case made from a durable hard plastic. When you purchase this travel kit, the box will include:
- 1x SOURCE slim XL Attachment
- 1x SOURCE volt Mega battery w/ Built-in Silicone Container
- 2x XL Series Atomizers
- 1x Travel Tool
- 1x micro USB Charging Cable
- 1x Microfiber Cleaning Cloth
- 1x SOURCEvapes Large Travel Case
- 1x XL Series Quad Coil – Black Ceramic atomizer
- 1x XL Series SOURCE core (All-Ceramic Coil-less)
Tyler: There’s a little cord for charging. It also comes with a little tool which kind of looks like a harpoon for ants, but its actually to pack your dabs. The travel case is a big reason why it is a contender for the best portable vape for shatter.
This is another cool little feature, at the bottom, there’s like a hidden little compartment for you to hide your concentrates, shatters, and waxes. Put a little snack in there for later if you really want.
So realistically this thing is easy to use, it’s easy to charge, it’s really compact. You can bring it with you anywhere. I would not recommend you bring this through airport security with it fully packed. But that’s jsut me. This vape certainly does the trick, it always got me covered.
It’s small, it’s simple, its reliable. It’s the Allen Iverson of vapes.
