If you’re looking for an affordable handheld vaporizer for the 20th Century aficionado, then look no further than the Palm Original and Palm 2.0 Vaporizers. The Palm Vaporizer is often compared to the Magic Flight Launch Box Vaporizer, and while both are tiny convection-style vapes for dry materials , there are truly some significant design differences between the two devices that sets the Palm apart from its wooden progenitor.
HOW DOES THE PALM VAPORIZER WORK?
The Palm2.0 is a convection oven vaporizer which features a 2 inch trench and a clear snap-action lid to keep your materials secure. As opposed to the Launch Box, the Palm features a plastic vapor path and mouthpiece which comes with a flavored tip so the vapor’s heat is mitigated by a pleasant taste such as strawberry or grape. Everything about the Palm vape screams stealth and security. The size makes it very easy to conceal while taking draws, and the simple pop-top design makes loading and cleaning the trench an absolute breeze. It’s best to finely grind your materials using a metallic grinder, then load 2-3 pinches of material into the Palm trench. Once you close the lid it’s all up to the rechargeable battery.
You’ll want to make sure you’ve got two NiMH batteries fully charged before engaging the heating element, which can be achieved by sliding one of the batteries into the side of the Palm or Palm 2.0 housing unit and starting a convection current. The Palm and Palm 2.0 are true convection ovens for your dry materials . This means there is never any combustion occurring, hence no smoke or ashy residue. Your inhalations are more flavorful, more euphoric and more satisfying since they are vapor rather than smoke, which contains tar and other carcinogens.
SIZE & APPEARANCE
Measuring roughly 1.5 inches tall by 5 inches wide by 4 inches long, the Palm is one of the smallest vaporizers ever created. The Palm weighs in at barely half a pound, making it very easy to transport and a much smarter alternative to whipping out a pipe with your materials in public; no lighter, no loading, no hassle. Get it loaded before you leave the house and all you need is a charged up battery to get some great vapor.Besides the diminutive size, the Palm Vaporizers are actually pretty slick little devices. They are available in a wide variety of colors to fit anyone’s preferences, such as: Black, Blue, Green, Grey, Orange, Pink, Red, Clear, and White.
WHY SHOULD I BUY A PALM?
We love the Palm Vaporizer because of its creative design, its nearly instant heating and its effectiveness with vaporizing plant materials for aromatherapy enjoyment. The Palm is made exclusively for dry materials ; while many people are looking for pen-style vaporizers to enjoy their dry materials , there really are no pen vapes that truly vaporize the materials . Pretty much all of these units (like the Atmos Raw and White Rhino Dube) are basically glorified pipes. You can only get the true health benefit of vaporization with a product like the Palm or Palm 2.0.Finally, the last thing to love about the Palm family of vapes is the warranty. Both the Palm Original and the Palm 2.0 Vaporizers are backed by a Lifetime Manufacturer’s Warranty so if anything goes wrong, you can return it to the manufacturer for a replacement unit at any time.
THAT’S NICE, BUT WHAT DO THE EXPERTS THINK?
Milad G from TorontoVaporizer praises the discreetness and portability of the Magic-Flight Launch Box, saying “This is a very discreet unit, with a small size and a design that doesn't look much like a vaporizer. It isn't sealed against odors, but vaporization doesn't generally produce a lot of odor, so on that front the Palm isn't bad. The clear mouthpiece will be a problem for discreetness up close though. In general, discreetness and portability are the strongest categories for this vape.”

"This is a really cute thing to have...but doesn't really provide the vapor production i'm lookin for. It's a cool thing to have at a party...get's the girls attention for a moment. Better off getting the Magic Flight Vaporizer."
"Cool Concept, Not So Great Vapeorizer."

"The Palm is a good concept, I like how it resembles a traditional pipe but when it comes to actually producing, it just doesn't do it.. It's works similarly to the Magic Flight Launch Box where you have to press the battery down into the vape but I notice that unlike the MFLB, you really have to jam the battery in there to make good contact. I also don't like how the Palm is plastic, that just doesn't sit well with me. The design is supposed to allow you to hit the Palm like a pipe but when you close the flip top and hold it up, all the herb falls to the bottom so you actually have to angle the vape down so the herb stays evenly distributed on the screen. I don't think I would recommend this vaporizer to anyone, if you want something similar check out the Magic Flight Launch Box."
"Don't waste your money."

"This thing is terrible. My boyfriend spent a lot of his hard earned money on the palm 2.0, and I feel so bad about it. The green is definitely being heated, because you can smell it and it turns brown, but we don’t get any kind of high at all from it. Trust me, we tried it many times and did a lot of research to see if maybe we were doing something wrong. I told him to send it back, but it’s probably too late now. What a waste of money and weed. I’ve read so many bad reviews on other sites too."
