The Summit Plus vaporizer by Vapium has a few improvements over its predecessor, the popular, original Summit vaporizer, but the changes are in functionality, and the exterior is not much different than the earlier Summit.
This vaporizer was especially created for lovers of the outdoors. It has a rugged design with a slip-resistant rubber grip, heavy-duty construction for withstanding accidental falls, certified dust and splash resistance, and a waterproof dry-bag carry case, in case you want to take it on your next fishing or winter camping expedition.
It’s also made to work in extreme weather in temperatures ranging from 320º F to 446º F (-18ºC to 80ºC). And, it has a good battery charge for taking on hikes, camping, or skiing. The Summit Plus is perfect for everyone looking for a compact, well-designed dry herb vaporizer to use anywhere, any time.

- Instruction manual
The mouthpiece is attached to the body of the unit with a strong magnet and is removed by pulling. The chamber lid also snaps in place with a magnet when closed and is attached to the body with a cord, so you won’t lose it when the lid is off when you clean and pack the chamber.
The molded plastic mouthpiece has a low draw resistance, making it easy to pull vapor through the airway. The mouthpiece is attached to the body of the unit with a magnet and two, recessed divots for a secure fit. It slips right into the stainless steel airway tube leading to the chamber. There are no plastic parts in the airway.
With the mouthpiece removed, the airway is simple to clean with a regular pipe cleaner, and Vapium includes a few to get you started. You can easily run the pipe cleaner all the way into the chamber to keep everything clean and drawing properly. Remove the screen before using a pipe cleaner.
Dry Herb Chamber
The heating chamber and air tube going to the mouthpiece are made of stainless steel. The chamber is heated with a conduction element, and there is a small screen at the bottom of the chamber to keep herb from falling through into the airway.
The screen has a small tab so you can remove it, and the cleaning tool has a hook for lifting the screen out. The vaporizer comes with three replacement screens. The chamber needs to be brushed out after each vaping session, and the airway cleaned out with a pipe cleaner or Q-Tip every couple of sessions.
The chamber can hold about .2 to .3 grams of herb. It shouldn’t be overfilled or tamped down too much, or it will interfere with the draw. The amount of herb you can get in the chamber is enough for ten to twenty draws, and one battery charge gives you enough power for about an hour of vaping.
Power, Temperature and Functionality
Three large buttons control all of the functions on the Summit Plus. Vapium calls the power button the ‘Go’ button, and holding it for three seconds turns the unit on. The two other buttons let you move the temperature up or down. The temperature is shown on a color coded LED display.
The summit plus is designed for extreme weather conditions, making it a great choice if you are heading anywhere from the ski slopes to the desert. It will operate in temperatures as low as 0º F. (-18ºC), low enough for most ski-lift rides, and up to 176º F (80ºC), which is hotter than it’s ever been on Earth, so far!
Four LED lights let you know the battery status, power status, and temperature setting. The Summit Plus has 8 heat settings for adjusting the temperature from 330ºF (160ºC) to 440ºF (230ºC). Heat time is about 45 seconds after pushing the power button. A stealthy vibration alerts you when the unit has reached your desired vaping temperature.
If you stop drawing on the vaporizer for longer than ninety seconds, it goes into standby mode to save battery life. Pushing the power button once brings it back to the temperature it was last set to. After thirty minutes in standby, the unit automatically shuts off.
Battery and Charging
The re-chargeable battery is built-in. It uses a 3300 mAh lithium battery, delivering power for about an hour of vaping. That’s enough of a charge for about eight to ten vaping sessions. The battery has a pass-through feature that lets you vape while it is charging, and the battery takes about an hour to re-charge.
A micro USB charger cable is used for charging with a laptop or smartphone, and a cable is included along with a wall charging adapter.
