The VaporGenie Vaporiser


I been using the VaporGenie now on & off since I got it just before Christmas of 2005 and I have been more than impressed as this is the fastest and easiest way to Vapor your herbs.

The VaporGenie has no batteries or electrical cords as all you need to get your vapor is a lighter thanks to the ceramic heat shield, this is found in the large round piece of the pipe that sits above your ready packed pipe.

To work the VaporGenie properly all it needs is a little practice. As you begin to draw air very slowly through the pipe you hold you lighter just above the rim of your ceramic heat shield so the flame is just licking into the top of the heat shield but not touching it as if you let the flame sit directly on your heat shield you will forever be blocking it with soot (which can be cleaned using a jet lighter). As you begin to taste a very nice hashy taste (if you can taste butane your lighter is too close) coming through your pipe begin to draw in deeper & faster taking in a deep breath of all your vapor and then hold it for a second or two and exhale and you should see a cloud of vapor as you do, it's not smoke just take a look at your now used herbs to see and you'll find the herb in your pipe has now gone a light brownie colour and smells a bit like toasted popcorn (as I find with all properly vapourised herb) if you did burn it then you either held your lighter to close to your shield or didn't quite draw your vapor in fast enough but with a little practice you won't be burning any herb, only vapourising it.

In closing like most vapourisers the VaporGenie definitely offers a much cleaner high than just smoking it and yes you do get more from you herb than when you just burn it as THC only needs to be heated to be activated not burnt. I found the only problem with the VaporGenie was I am constantly running out of lighters as it definatley uses a lot more of your gas however I think a good quality angled jet lighter would be perfect to use on the VaporGenie with a little practice as they heat much quicker than a standard flame lighter and once you got used to the extra heat from them you would use a lot less gas heating your VaporGenie.

Sweet report. Thanx mate. :P

I've been thinking about grabbing one of these for awhile now... for vapour on the run... since I can't strap my Volcano on my back and plug it in my arse lol

Yours is one of many good reports I've read... I don't think I've read any negative reports actually.

How do these compare to the eagle bill shake n' vape?

Wouldn't it be hard to know when the material has been vaped fully with the genie? As it doesn't appear that you can see the mix being heated, It's looks pretty easy to burn the mix if you can't see it.

For mine, I would go for the eagle bill(bit cheaper too)..

Just had a look for reviews on the net and there are hardly any I would call favourable about the genie. Users have had trouble with burning their gear, as I suggested might be the case in the post above..

check out the Eagle Bill Shake & Vape Pipe here

It's only glass so it would be fragile but at least you can see if your burning your green or not and when the mix is done. $31AUS plus postage:)

I'm actually going to order one myself in the next week or so..

yeah I have vaped herb using pipes like this. (I thought I invented the method doh! ) It works OK I guess. Pipes like that are sold in most smoke shops in Australia. I didn't have the screen on top, but with a little care you can shake the herb around without losing any.

the problems with this method is because the herb is sitting loose in the glass bowl it doesn't take much to suck it into your mouth so you have to toke very carefully. One way to get around this is to use the pipe as a stem in a bong (they're the perfect size for a standard sized bong). Some pipes have a kink in the stem just before the bowl which makes them easier to use that way.

also they are hard to clean.

I can see how the vaporgenie might be better as you are drawing hot air over the herb which is how all the better model vapourises work. With the glass pipe you are heating the herb directly from underneath and in a stoned state you generally end up burning it. but yeah, it is good to be able to see the herb that way you know for sure when its spent.

Hey Oz, how secure is the ceramic shield thingy? Would it stay on in your pocket or in a bag, or does it come off easily? Safe to keep a bowl full without it spilling out everywhere?

I ordered one from the MANUFACTURER in the US on the 21 June for $AU76 (converted from USD) AND IT STILL HASN'T ARRIVED. Apparantly it got lost in transit. Apparantly they're going to send me another one. Hmm...we'll see. Not Happy Jan.

Well...after some emails to Dan from Vapor Genie in the US, my replacement pipe arrived today and I've just tried it out.

It works exactly as promised, really easy to use and after a couple of bowls, I am nicely ripped. It's a very nice high too - it feels very clean.

I rate my experience so far with the Vapor Genie VERY highly, and recommend getting one for yourselves ASAP.

Hey, I am new to the forum and to pot, and I've also just ordered one of these from Freewheelin! So glad to read the positive reviews from you guys, thanks.

got one of these as well and think they're awesome. I gave mine a good road test yesterday (all day and most of the night) and couldn't be happier with it. Once you get your technique down you can vaporise all the herb with no burning at all and they give a really good hit. For stealth you can preload and just slip it in your pocket with a lighter, and its absolutely smokeless if you use it properly.

I prefer to support Australian based businesses when I can, but the OS Shop doesn't stock them yet and freewheelin didn't return my email at all. So I got mine direct off www.vaporgenie.com for $55USD incl delivery and it took 1.5weeks to get here. I was happy with their service and the packaging is very discreet. Not that it needs to be these pipes aren't illegal.

If ya want more info on em read about it on the above link. Very good value for money IMO. :thumbsup:

I can recommend these as well, it's what I use when I'm on the move (my volcano is what I use for weed at home). They work extremely well and are very easy to use without burning your gear.

Definitely just gotsma self one today. I can't say what hasn't already been said, only back them up. This thing is sweet as hell. Once I got the hang of it (first 2-3 hits) I blew out so much vapor I unscrewed my bowl convinced I had burnt it. Nay. Only dark brown herbs.

What really surprised me was the flavor. I have a $150 Vapir 4.0 that I modded with electrical tape and replaced the bags with reynolds turkey bags via a modification tutorial which makes it rule, definitely an attention grabber at parties. I get a pretty good taste from that, but it doesn't hold a candle to the taste of this thing. It was like jumping into a sea of pot.

Another big up is that if you're the kind that goes vapor-only, like me, you have less control over how much you smoke. It's easy with hits out of a bowl, but if you're happily cooked and you have a bag half full of vapor it's like "well fuck, I ain't gonna waste it." This is just another contributing factor to the big equation of how much green you're saving by vaping as opposed to smoking. Vaporizing is the way to go.

Overall, this thing is going to be some of the best $50 I've ever spent. I can honestly say that if you don't buy one of these, you're really missing out. I am fucking ripped right now off of one bowl. Do what you have to do; steal, assault, murder whoever you need to save up $50 for one of these things.

Another note one this pipe. I realized that the taste you get is directly affected by what kind of green you put in. When I first used it I had some pretty dank bud, and the taste was extraordinary. However, good nug doesn't stay around my area for long. Soon it was back to mids, and the taste was not impressive at all.

What I'm getting at is that whenever you're trying out a new or different strand, not only do you have a different high to look forward to, but also a different taste. I can't help but think "mmm I wonder how this will taste" whenever I come across different strands.

PS- college is creeping upon us (well, at least me). After getting busted for smoking in the dorms twice and having gone through the runaround way too many times to find a decent place to enjoy cannabis peacefully, it might be worth to point out that the odor is almost nonexistent. If there is any, it disappears withins minutes, and is very light; someone standing right outside your door could not smell it, especially with some obvious masks such as incense or a correctly positioned fan. This thing is perfect for lighting up when smoke is your dead giveaway. No more trudging through the snow at 3am for me!

I've had a VG for about 3-4 months now and I only use it in bed just before I go to sleep. At the start I loved my VG but it hardly gets me ripped anymore, billies get me way more hammered

has anyone tried a flameless lighter? I've been using jet & reg, but thought flameless would allow for more efficient heating...

this might be a dumb question, but i've never used a vapouriser. is it something you could say smoke in your home office and your missus wouldn't know you're lighting up in there? she's got smell akin to a great white shark tasting blood in water when it comes to weed.

Hey dudes,

I bought one of those vaporizer pipes in the U.S. for $80 at a headshop. I have to say, I was initially disappointed with the device. You go through lighters just like Oz said. So I tried using a torch lighter and it worked great with a little practice. But after a few weeks, the diffuser rock on top started getting a hole in it where the flame would go. That kinda worried me since I don't think smoking some kind of rock (it wasn't ceramic) was likely not good on the lungs and I ditched the top. That left me with a regular pipe, that cost me a hefty $80.
