Vapium Summit+

WARNING: The products discussed may contain or use nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical; in many cities and a few states, you must be 21 to purchase vaping products and/or products containing nicotine. Please familiarize yourself with and obey the law in your location.

When you think of vaporizers, outdoor use and weather-friendliness might not be the first features you’d require. But if you’re interested in a vaporizer that can withstand splashes and dirt, that can handle extreme heat or cold, one that looks like a rugged little tank and that comes with plenty of accessories, then you should check out the Vapium Summit+.

The Vapium Summit+ Vaporizer retails for $149.99, and it is available directly from the manufacturer and other retailers.

OPCOM Farm GrowBox Indoor Hydroponic Gardening System

If gardening outside isn’t feasible — either because you live on top of a big rock (like Kev and I do) or because you live in an apartment — you’ll want to check out the OPCOM Farm GrowBox. I use it to grow lettuce, but you can also grow other veggies and herbs with it. OPCOM makes various sizes that are more suitable for home use (and less expensive), but I reviewed one of the larger ones.

The OPCOM Farm GrowBox Indoor Hydroponic Gardening System retails for $509, and it is available directly from the manufacturer. Be sure to check out their smaller (and less expensive) indoor gardens, too!

About the Author

Judie Lipsett Stanford
I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
