Vape Up or Ship Out: Two of Our Favorite Vaporizers – The Portland Mercury


In stoner parlance, to “hotbox” means to fill a car, room, tent, or other confined space with cannabis smoke to the degree that those occupying said space who are not actively consuming can still obtain a high.

It comes complete with a cutesy “robot from the future” narrative and looks a little like a futuristic satellite radio for your car.

There’s also an optional “LifePack” portable external battery that allows you to operate the unit for two-plus hours on a single full charge. Each unit comes with an impressive lifetime warranty, and one free coil replacement. It measures 3.75 inches by 5 inches, and weighs just one pound.
