Vaporizers are the newest and best tech to revolutionize smoking. They are cleaner, more efficient, practical and mobile. Vaping is generally regarded as being a lot healthier than combustion, allegedly significantly lowering the risk of various diseases. It also doesn’t require a constant stream of disposable cigarette lighters, or obnoxious butane that ruins the flavor. And the industry has presented a wide variety of quality vapes in different forms with different functions with varying prices and everything else.

Benefits of the Flowermate V5.0 Pro

There are lots of good models at various prices, but one of the best vapes for novice and experienced vape enthusiasts has got to be the Flowermate V5.0 Pro. And when they say they mean it. It’s a new and improved version of the Flowermate V.5.0 and they’ve really taken vaping to the next level. It’s completely customizable, offers amazing temperature control, and offers true vaporization with no combustion. And it comes with everything you need to start vaping dry herbs immediately!


The Flowermate V5.0 Pro uses no combustion, so your herbs will never turn to ash or give you that charcoal flavor. If you vape it completely to the end, it just turns to a browned dust! The Flowermate V5.0 Pro uses conduction heating, which provides pure, reliable flavor hit after hit. And of course vaping with any device allows you to forgo the ugly side of smoking herbs. If you’re still dealing with bong water stains and burn marks on the carpet, smelly smoke on your walls or in your hair and clothes, your life is about to change forever after your next vape shop visit.

The Kit Includes

The folks who make the Flowermate really went all-out. The kit comes with the Flowermate V5.0 Pro Vaporizer, one borosilicate glass mouthpiece, one liquid/wax chamber (made with organic cotton, no less), one external stainless steel loading chamber, three stainless steel screens, one packing tool, one cleaning brush, a charger, and an instruction manual. Kitchen sink not included, but that’s about it.

A Closer Look at the Flowermate V5.0 Pro Vaporizer:

  • Customizable Temperature Controls — Temps range from 104 to 446 degrees F, and it can get all the way up to 446 in just 30 seconds! You can adjust the temperature to within 1 single degree, which is amazingly precise and puts the Flowermate on the front line of vape tech.
  • Easy-to-read LCD Display — The bright and clear LCD screen shows the current temperature, the desired temperature, and the battery life, giving the user complete control and confidence when it comes to their vaping experience.
  • Versatile — The Flowermate V5.0 Pro is designed for vaping dry herbs, but the organic cotton liquid/wax chamber makes it the ideal vape for all types of products, both medical and recreational. The universal adapter (sold separately) means you can replace your bong or water pipe's bowl with the Flowermate V5.0 Pro for a hybrid experience that brings old and new tech together, the best of both worlds!

The Flowermate V5.0 Pro Vaporizer kit comes with everything you need to vape, charge, and clean, and it’s all surprisingly simple! Even joint or blunt smokers or diehard bong fans who might be intimidated by all the new tech will find it easy and fun to get started.


Charging the Flowermate V5.0 Pro Vaporizer

First thing you have to do is charge up the Flowermate V5.0 Pro, and that couldn’t be easier. Just use the charger that comes with the kit. One end plugs into any functioning outlet or other USB power source, the other end into the vaporizer. It’s even clearly marked where to plug the charger in, and the hole is hidden by one of the slide doors when not in use. The LCD screen lets you know when the Flowermate is charging properly and when it’s done charging. The charging symbol fluctuates while charging and stops fluctuating once its fully charged.

The Flowermate only takes about 3-4 hours to charge, so you do NOT want to leave it charging overnight! And, as the old saying goes, store it in a cool, dry place for best performance!


Using the Flowermate V5.0 Pro Vaporizer

Then it’s time to use the Flowermate V5.0 Pro, which of course is where this vaporizer shines. The Flowermate V5.0 Pro has two sliding chamber doors on each end. First open the bottom and retrieve the mouthpiece, Grind up the herb (the finer the better) and slide open the other door to reveal the ceramic heating chamber. Fill it, using a funnel or your fingers or the cool pre-pack heating chamber, a little metal pod which is smaller than the heating chamber and perfect if you're on the go. No need to pack the chamber or the pod too tight, because you want good air flow to get the most out of your vape! The mouthpiece condenses the herb into the heating chamber just a bit when you screw it in, so keep that in mind. You'll want to make sure your screen is nice and clean too. Then slide the door shut, attach the mouthpiece, and you're good to go!

Press the power button 5 times quickly and the screen will read ‘system on’. Use the + and - buttons to adjust the Set Temperature. The LCD displays the current Actual Temperature of the heating chamber as it rises. The hotter the temperature, the bigger the hit. Lower temperatures provide a lighter hit which may be vitally important for those that cannot be exposed to smoke or thick vapors.The Flowermate V.50 Pro’s versatility and flexibility are perfect for these users. You can hit the vape at any time during the heating process, which can go all the way to the max of 466 degrees F in just 30 seconds. It's that easy.

Make sure to turn the Flowermate V5.0 Pro off when you're done with your vape session with another 5 quick clicks of the power button.The LCD reads ‘system off’. If you have a really good vape session, you might forget to turn the vaporizer off. No worries there, since the Flowermate V5.0 Pro turns off automatically after five minutes. That will preserve the life of the device and keep you happily vaped for years to come. When you're ready, simply detach the mouthpiece and put it back into the chamber in the bottom of the device. If there's another hit or two in the chamber, you can slide the door shut and save it for later. If you're all vaped out, its best to clear out the heating chamber.

And of course you’ll want to keep your Flowermate V5.0 Pro clean.


Cleaning the Flowermate V5.0 Pro Vaporizer

You can wipe down the exterior with a damp cloth, but you don’t want to submerge the device into water or any kind of wet condition. Sorry, no vapes in the shower. But you can soak the mouthpiece and filter screen in boiling water or rubbing alcohol. Some people use alcohol and a cotton swab, but a lot of people just put them into a bottle, shake them up, and they're clean. A cotton swab is perfect for keeping the heating chamber clean if you like, but the important thing is just to keep it cleared. I use the brush that came with the kit and it worked just fine. If you’re using alcohol on your cotton swab when you clean the heating chamber, make sure you wring it out first and barely have anything on the swab. You do not want ANY alcohol or ANY liquid to leak into the device, not even the slightest drop. Electricity and liquid do NOT mix!


New Improvements on the V5.0

For those already familiar with the previous model, the the Flowermate V5.0 Pro has a stylish 1-color design so the slide doors and controls blend right into the unit for maximum discretion. The vaporizer comes in black or metallic blue, each with a matching mouthpiece (the black model comes with a smoke-colored mouthpiece, the blue model comes with a clear mouthpiece). The casing is thicker and more durable, The USB charger adds a lot of flexibility to the previous AC vape charger. The new device also has isolated air paths for better overall performance. The LCD screen is probably the most obvious innovation, and it makes the precise temperature control easy.

Vapes come in a lot of designs and vary in efficiency and power and price. But for overall performance, convenience, and affordability, the Flowermate V5.0 Pro is a solid choice. It’s discrete and sleek and self-contained, great for use at home or on the go. The ease of control makes it ideal for heavy hitters or lightweights, for long sessions or for quick vapes. The long battery life makes it the perfect traveling companion, and the USB charger means you can charge it from your phone or computer device or any functioning all outlet. No other vaporizer is so easy to use or flexible. And it’s priced to compete with other top-shelf vaporizers, providing a lot more bang for your buck.
