Randys Chill Vaporizer Review: Breakdown

Build Quality

The Chill by Randy uses a freezable, non-toxic gel in the air tube. The tube itself is high quality blown glass, and so is the glass bubbler.

These components will break, so try to handle with care. For faster freezing vapor, check out the 5.5-inch tube named the Icicle. This accessory is sold separately.

We really appreciate the magnetic connections used to secure the coils to the base. We also really like the built-in storage space that can be used for either dry herb or concentrate. The window into the inner workings is also a nice touch.

Vapor Quality

There are 2 ways you can use the Chill: with the glass tube or the glass bubbler. Neither does much for the materials you put inside of it. The vapor quality is mediocre at best.

The manufacturer put the battery near the bottom of the unit, so there are a few inches of air path that allows the vapor to cool. The water bubbler also helps to cool down the vapor. However, our issues are the low-quality cloud taste and feel.

In our opinion, the frozen gel barely affects the quality of the hits. There is a bit more smoothness, but hardly enough to notice. Within 4 draws the air tube was back to room temperature. Although it can refreeze in 15 minutes, the whole process takes a lot of work.

Altogether, there are 6 different preset temperatures. Three are for herbs, and the other 3 are for concentrates. We think it is disappointing that such an innovative vaporizer does not include a range of temperatures to choose from. We don’t even know what the presettings are!

Design

Look and Feel

The Chill comes in 3 sleek colors: black, silver, and blue. However, there is a slightly unsightly logo on the front.

Other than that, we have no complaints. In fact, the ergonomic design makes it comfortable to hold.

Discreetness

Discreetness

In terms of discreetness, this vaporizer is decent. It isn’t too big, but it is difficult for many people to palm. The smell is about what you would expect.

However, if you want to hide the Chill quickly, I would think twice before using the bubbler filled with water!

Difficulty

Ease of Use

Although the Chill might seem confusing, it is actually quite simple to use. This goes double if you have ever used a vaporizer before. To turn the unit on or off, simply press the power button 5 times. To toggle between the temperatures, press the power button 3 times.

Once you have chosen your desired heat level, you must push the power button as you take your drag. This makes the Chill really intuitive to use, even for beginners. It also gives you more control over your draw length.

To switch out your atomizer, simply pull out the chamber that holds the oven. Gently push the atomizer downward and the magnetic connections will easily release. To stash the atomizer you aren’t currently using, simply put it inside the hidden compartment!

Portability

Portability

This vaporizer is only 1.5 inches wide by 4.5 inches long. Even though the size is portable, the Chill doesn’t really cooperate with being used on the go. You can’t just throw a bubbler filled with water into your purse or pocket!

If you want to use this device the way it is supposed to be used, it is not portable at all. In fact, the frozen gel turns to room temperature pretty quickly.

You can take an unfrozen tube with you, but then what’s the point of spending $150USD on the Chill? Away from a freezer, it’s not that unique.

Conclusion

We really wanted to love this vaporizer. The idea is so cool, but the actual product leaves much to be desired. There are definitely higher quality, compact, 2-in-1 vaporizers on the market, the Utillian 721 being the first one I can think of off the top of my head.
