Puffco Peak Review: Breakdown

Build Quality

In terms of build quality, Puffco’s newest vaporizer comes highly recommended. The Peak features hand-blown glass for the highest quality vapor.

The device also features a water filter so nothing unwanted can get through. The bowl itself is made of high-quality ceramic and can be removed for easy cleaning.

Another important part of any standing vaporizer is the base. Luckily, Puffco did a great job in constructing The Peak. The silicone base can take a hit, and won’t easily tip or slip. In addition, the majority of the weight is concentrated in the bottom to reduce accidents.

One feature we love is the battery quality. The unit itself comes with a supercharger for a charging time of 2 hours. After the wait, the Puffco Peak heats up in about 20 seconds and you can enjoy the Puffco Peak for 30 individual uses or 4-6 sessions.

Vapor Quality

Although we were initially disappointed we couldn’t choose our own temperature, we found we don’t really need to. The 4 settings Puffco selected were all picked with the user in mind.

There is something for everyone! Whether you like big flavor, small loads, large clouds or lots of wax, rest assured there is a heat setting for you.

The intelligent temperature calibration is another reason you don’t have to worry about manually controlling your sessions. The smart technology adjusts heat times when your bowl is still hot. This gives vapers uninterrupted clouds of the utmost quality.

Temperature calibration is ultimately what allows The Peak to offer a truly unique vaping experience. Sesh-mode is for those times you want to pass around your device without re-loading every time.

In fact, we found the quality of vapor lasted throughout a whole group session. Not only is being able to share convenient, it is a complete game changer for a rig.

Design

look-and-feel

Look and Feel

No one can deny that the Puffco Peak has an interesting design. We think it looks like a lovechild between the Dirt Devil Cone vacuum and a water pipe.

It could also be described as a very vertical mountain with a high peak. Similar to a mountain, this vaporizer feels sturdy. Not only is the base strong, the whole unit is solid.

Discreetness

Discreetness

The Puffco Peak isn’t exactly the most discreet unit on the market today. However, it isn’t meant to be. You will not be able to hide the rig in your hands or disguise it as something different.

Even so, the manufacturer decided to include a couple of features to add to the inconspicuousness.

The Peak includes haptic feedback to discreetly tell you it is time to vape. Also, the LED light band around the bottom is optional. You can use to indicate the battery and heating time in the appropriate settings.

Difficulty

Ease of Use

We won’t mince words. The Peak isn’t intuitive for beginners. On the bright side, it is easier to use than most other tabletop rigs.

The instruction manual is available on the website, and we believe most people will get it down within a couple of sessions.

Portability

Portability

The Peak looks like a desktop unit, and we typically wouldn’t consider a device such as this portable. However, the whole thing is only 7 inches high with a 2.75-inch base. Furthermore, Puffco included a carrying case to make the unit more on the go.

Also lending itself to portability is the long battery life. We touched on it earlier, but you can literally take this thing anywhere and count on it to do its job. The Peak can hold a charge for a few days while you spend time off the grid.

Conclusion

The Puffco Peak certainly sets itself apart from the rest of the wax and e-rig game and for the price tag we would certainly hope so. For the price you get a very solid and futuristic feeling e-rig. Being a fresh product we are curious to see how it holds up over time and just how strong the glass really is.

If you are looking for a portable e-rig that can also handle dry herbs we suggest checking out the Focusvape Tourist.

There are tons of vape pens on the market and some for every budget, you may find it helpful to check out our vape pen section where we review the top devices in the industry. One popular device that may be worth looking into fits most budgets is the Thunder 2.
