Looking for a portable vaporizer that does it all? The Grizzly Eclipse vaporizer is a versatile 3-in-1 device that uses three separate tanks, allowing you to interchange between vaping dry herb, concentrate and e-liquid.
The clever thing about this vape is that the base unit recognizes which tank is screwed on and displays the associated symbol (leaf for dry herb, honeycomb for concentrate, or drop for e-liquid) on its screen.
This automatic detection means that the temperature, wattage, and coil voltage are synced to each tank – which is pretty neat! You can then adjust the functions to your preferred vaping settings. In case you aren’t sure where to start, Grizzly provides a paper insert with recommended settings for your first setup.
For our review, we’ll be sticking to cannabis, testing the device with dry herb and concentrate.
Using a mellow Lady Benbow strain for some all day puffing, we found the Grizzly Eclipse vaporizer allows for a great flavor profile, but low to average vapor plume. The tank heats up to a max of 385 degrees F which is a little on the cold side for herb, yet the fast heat up time makes it worthwhile. Simply hold down the main button for five seconds to initiate the heating setting. The display screen shows the degrees clocking up until it stops at your selected temperature. Once at temperature, the draw resistance is comparable to other dry herb vaporizers – you have to pull much harder than a CO2 vape pen or joint, but there is no need for heavy or labored drags.
After spending time with herb only, we switched over to concentrate to see how the Grizzly faired. Using some Gemstone indica wax, the vaporizer produced big vapor and bold flavor. The wax was efficiently heated and lasted for multiple hits; plus, clean up was simple with the provided Eclipse accessories (along with a cotton swab, not included). The Grizzly Eclipse feels like a great option for taking concentrates on the go. The device is around six inches, give or take depending on which tank you are using, so it’s better suited for a bag than a pocket.
The Grizzly Eclipse Vaporizer Overall Experience
Once set up properly, the experience of using the Grizzly is simple and effective. The device feels well-made. It’s weight, shape, and rubber grip detail feel nice in the hand and the tanks are easy to interchange. After the initial charge, the battery life was excellent. The inconvenient initial setup time is a drawback – the device requires charging for four hours before the first use and you have to run the heat cycle with empty tanks before packing them for use. The max temperature on the herb could be higher, but both the herb and the concentrate tasted great.
The Grizzly Eclipse was designed in Toronto, Canada by Grizzly Originals to be versatile, durable and convenient – and we certainly agree. With some of the expected issues that come with being a 3-in-1 vaporizer instead of a single specialized tool, the vape is by far the most modern design out there. This product is great for the multi-category consumer. Instead of dealing with multiple devices for your different materials, this device will simplify your routine.
The Grizzly Eclipse vaporizer is available through Namaste Vapes. It’s important to note that the Grizzly Eclipse comes with a one year warranty, but this does not include the glass pieces – so don’t drop the tanks! But should you need one, replacements are readily available through the Namaste Vapes website.
