Brief Overview

Established in 1999, the Vaporbrothers vaporizer is made in sunny Southern California, and is one of the few box style vaporizers made in the states. The Vaporbrothers employs the use of a 100% natural ceramic mineral-heating element, which leads to a faster heat up time, and smoother tasting vapor draws. Included in every package is: whip/wand, oil diffuser, essential oil sample, and warranty information.

See User Guides below for full usage information.
 

Using Your Vaporbrothers

A: An industry classic since 1999, The Vaporbrothers is one of the simplest and most effective vaporizers to use, and set the bar for many of the vaporizers on the market today.

Its so simple – once the Vaporbrothers has been allowed to warm up to the temperature you set for your particular blend, fill your wand 1/3 full with your medium to medium-fine grind, insert it onto the heater, and draw. It’s that easy!

Its vital that when you first use the Vaporbrothers, or when you use new/different blends, you start with low temperatures and work your way up to the sweet spot.

A: The Vaporbrothers excels with a medium to medium-fine grind. Too large of a grind won’t be efficient enough to create satisfying vapors, and too fine will cause airway blockage.

Experiment with your grind level, draw rate and temperature to find your vapor sweet spot.

A: The temperature takes roughly two minutes to warm up to the temperature you set.
A: Nope. The Vaporbrothers Hands Free remembers the last set temperature you used via the manual dial.

As long as this dial isn’t moved, then every time you power on the Vaporbrothers Hands Free, it should be at the same temperature you used last time.

A: As a whip-style vaporizer, vapor quality is determined largely by your draw rate, the consistency and level of grind you are using.

Every blend is different, so if you need to tweak the vapor quality, play with these variables: grind consistency(all particles are the same size), grind level(coarse, medium, fine), amount of blend in the heating chamber, and your personal draw rate.

Always start low with temps when you’re experimenting, and then work you’re way up.

A: The Vaporbrothers Hands Free was originally designed for aromatic blends only, but has shipped more recently with the Aromabulb, which allows liquids and concentrates to be used in the Vaporbrothers. If you don’t have an Aromabulb, contact Vaporbrothers who will be glad to help you out.
A: The Vaporbrothers Hands Free is available in 110v only at this time. With a power convertor AND an outlet adapter, (not just an outlet adapter) you can use this overseas on different voltages.
A: The Vaporbrothers Hands Free is capable of temperatures from 212°F to 394°F (100°C to 200°C)
A: 394°F – 200°C)
A: As a whip-style vaporizer, vapor quality is determined largely by your draw rate, the consistency and level of grind you are using.

Every blend is different, so if you need to tweak the vapor quality, play with these variables: grind consistency(all particles are the same size) grind level(coarse, medium, fine) amount of blend in the heating chamber, and your personal draw rate.

Always start low with temps when you’re experimenting, and then work your way up.

A: Nope! The models that Vape World carries do not have temperature readouts, so neither Fahrenheit or Celsius is an option.
A: The heater is ceramic, the heater cover, wand, and mouthpiece are glass, the hose is silicone. The unit has a wooden body.

A: Ceramics.
A: Possibly, but it is extremely avoidable. With a top-end temperature hot enough to overheat your blends, its vital that with each new blend you get, you start low and work your way up to the vapor sweet spot. As long as you have the correct temperature for your particular blend, you should never overheat your materials.
A: We recommend 1/3 to 1/2 full, and as you learn what your exact needs are, adjust the amount as needed.
A: Some owners recommend stirring between every draw, others never stir. We definitely recommend stirring, to ensure that all of your blend is vaporized, and nothing is accidentally wasted!
A: Nope. The power must be manually switched off.

As a general safety rule, do not leave the Vaporbrothers Hands Free unattended while powered on.

A: The Vaporbrothers Hands Free uses 1″ screens, available here.
A: Yes, it comes with a whip, which includes a 18mm glass wand w/ screen, silicone hose and glass mouthpiece
A: Yes, Vaporbrothers will happily upgrade your working vaporizer to the new model for a $35 flat fee which includes FREE return shipping to anywhere within the continental USA. This offer applies to any vaporizer with serial number over 27440, and less than 5 years old.

If your vaporizer is older than 5 years or less than number 27441, Vaporbrothers can offer you a substantial discount on a brand new unit.

To take advantage of this offer contact Vaporbrothers directly.

A:The best way to keep blends from falling out of the Whip is to prepare them with a hand grinder and tamp them lightly onto the screen. If this is done correctly, they should not fall out.

After the first draw, the botanical blends should stick into the Whip more securely. You can also minimize the issue by holding the Whip upright until the last moment before connecting to the heater, and to start your draw early to keep the organic botanical blend stuck against the screen. Some people choose to lift the box by hand or use a wedge to level the heating element.

If you are wondering why their design doesn’t solve this issue by pointing the heater downward, it is for a few reasons, most importantly reducing temperature buildup in the wooden housing.

Cleaning & Maintenance

A: A vaporizer is at its most efficient when all parts are clean, so over time as you experience buildup its best to maintain your parts regularly.

Always unplug the vaporizer from the electrical outlet and allow to cool COMPLETELY before cleaning, 30 minutes should be sufficient.

Always make sure your vaporizer is COMPLETELY dry before plugging it back in.

Do not attempt any internal or external repairs to your unit as doing so may cause fatal injury – or worse – void your warranty! (Please contact us if you feel something is wrong with your vaporizer.)

The glass is easily cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a soft flexible brush for stubborn buildup. The hose can be soaked in warm soapy water until all buildup is dislodged.

Never bring liquids near the Vaporbrothers Hands Free; if you need to clean the unit itself, wipe down with a warm damp cloth.

A: With the Vaporbrothers Hands Free, pay particular attention to the Wand and the hose, as they will incur the most buildup. Check periodically, and clean as necessary. It is vital that screen be kept clean at all times. Removing depleted blends immediately after vaporizing can cut down on screen buildup.
A: Only on the glass wand and mouthpiece. If you need to clean the unit itself, a warm damp cloth should do fine. If you need to clean the ground glass area of the heater cover, unplug the unit and allow to cool for 30 minutes. Use a cotton swap that is barely damp with isopropyl alcohol to clean only the OUTSIDE of the heater cover. Never attempt to clean the inside of the heater cover with anything remotely resembling a liquid.
A:The screen, the glass and and silicone hose will have the most frequent buildup.
A: If you need a new wand or whip we can take care of you. If you have a broken heater cover, please contact us for more information.
A: For the glass parts, isopropyl alcohol and a small soft brush or chanile stick will suffice. for the main unit, a soft cloth should be sufficient.

Getting the Most Out of Your Vaporbrothers

  • Use caution not to blow back into the mouthpiece when the wand is on the heater. This could cause particles to travel onto the heater and ignite.
  • Keep your wand and especially the screen clean. Inspect periodically to ensure that the screen is free of debris; if it isn’t, soak the end of the wand up to the screen(or the entire wand if you need to clean it). Also, with an empty wand, turn the unit on high, and pull very slowly through the whip. This should super-heat the screen, drying out any buildup. Repeat this for two or three draws. Once its heated through and dried out, blow forcefully through the mouthpiece and force out all the dry debris.
  • If you aren’t getting exactly the vapor quality you are after, look at adjusting any and/or all of the following variables until you find your sweet spot.
    • Grind Consistency – are the ground-up particles all roughly the same size?
    • Grind level – the Vaporbrothers Hands Free prefers a medium grind, but experiment with finer or coarser grinds to see if it achieves the result you are after.
    • Amount Used – Some vaporizers thrive when loaded fully. Others, not so much.
    • Draw Rate – Convection vaporizers with good airflow can have their temperatures altered by the speed at which you draw a breath. As the air passes over the heating element, obviously it heats up. If you draw fast, causing the air to move quickly over the heating element, it only has “X” amount of time to heat up. However if you draw slowly, the air has much more time to heat up, and therefore will deliver a much warmer air to your blends. Drawing fast = cooler temps; drawing slow = warmer temps.

Maintenance

Keeping your Vaporbrothers Hands Free clean is the best way to ensure its peak performance. Use Caution: Always unplug the Vaporbrothers Hands Free before cleaning, and allow it to cool down. Never bring liquids near the Vaporbrothers Hands Free.

  • The screen and wand will take most of the buildup. Soaking in isopropyl alcohol will clean them perfectly.
  • To clean the hose, soak in warm soapy water and manipulate the hose if needed to dislodge any stubborn buildup. Rinse thoroughly twice and allow to air dry before use.
  • The Vaporbrothers Hands Free body can be cleaned with a warm damp cloth. Always unplug the Vaporbrothers Hands Free before cleaning, and allow it to cool down. Never bring liquids near the Vaporbrothers Hands Free.
  • Emptying the wand immediately after use will cut down on the buildup you experience.
