Review: The Tourist 2-1 portable vaporizer by Focusvape
Normally when it comes to 2-1 units, I’m quite skeptical because of my past experiences, but that is not the case with the Tourist.
When I heard Focusvape was sending out the Tourist 2-1 portable vaporizer, I had second thoughts because when I think of a tourist, I imagine the annoying camera snapping type, which I tend to try and avoid, but not this tourist, this one is different. This is the type that comes over and stays the night and cleans up afterward. If you’d like to find out why this Tourist is the one you want around all the time then please continue reading.
My first Impressions upon opening the box of the Tourist was this is as complete of set up as you’ll find. With the Tourist, you get everything and the kitchen sink. If you are someone who prefers dry herbs while also enjoying waxes and concentrates but haven’t come across a gadget that does both very well, well, here it is folks.
The device comes in black, silver, and the one I received – electric blue. I personally love that color blue. It brings me nostalgia for my car days when I would zip around town in my electric blue Acura Integra. And just like my Integra, the Tourist is also a fine-tuned machine. With the Tourist, you get a solidly build multi-use vaporizer with some cool features, such as an LCD display to adjust the temperature down to single digits, removable heads: one for dry herbs and one for concentrates, two water diffusers for each element, two nice sized nails, and a nicely designed dab tool. In addition, you’ll find all the maintenance supplies you’ll need to keep your unit clean.
Now, I’ve tried out multi-use units like the Tourist before, the problem is most of the time they either get one function perfect yet the other is lacking performance. But that is not the case with the Tourist. From the smooth vapor it produces with dry herbs to the large cloudy dabs you’ll get with concentrates, the Tourist just shows us that there can be balance in our lives.
With the Tourist, simply swap the heads and switch from herb to wax and it’s ready to use. I also really like that they include water bubblers to help diffuse the vapor and it does it quite well. The rechargeable battery in the Tourist will give you about an hour of juice and it charges in about 3-4 hours. So if you planned to take it with you on a camping trip, you might want to consider purchasing a second battery. If you plan on using the Tourist as your go-to for home use, which is what I would recommend, the Tourist also has a cool bypass feature that allows you to use it while it’s charging.
Normally when it comes to 2-1 units I’m quite skeptical because of my past experiences, but that is not the case with the Tourist. It’s easy to use, easy to maintain and provides solid performance all while looking like a sexy beast.
This holiday season if you really want to impress your significant other or just want to treat yourself, you might seriously want to consider the Tourist by Focusvape. You can pick one up for $259 at Tvape.com.
