Thanks to the folks at TVape, we recently had the opportunity to review the Zeus Arc GTS Hub. It’s a great portable vape, but what impressed us the most was the new pod system that lets you quickly change out your dry herb load. TVape also sent the Arizer Argo, which offers a different approach to quick loading and swapping.

Three years ago, we reviewed the Zeus Arc GT. The small, compact device combines superb industrial design with the latest vaping technology. Now the company is back with a new model; the Zeus Arc GTS Hub Kit includes a vape that looks quite similar to its predecessor. Under the hood, there are significant improvements to the vape, but more importantly, it’s now part of a larger ecosystem.
We’ve covered quite a few vaporizers on Gear Diary, and many of them feature exciting new battery technology or fancy heating elements. But sometimes, it’s fun to get back to the most basic concept of vaporizing — heating material until it gives off a vapor. You don’t need batteries or a fancy heating system with the Vapman Classic, just a torch lighter and some patience!
You may have seen or heard of Delta-8 THC in gummy, vape, and other forms. It’s very similar to Delta-9, better known as the compound in marijuana that makes you high. The key differences are that Delta-8 provides a milder high, and it is derived from hemp, making it legal across the US thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill. We were sent a sample of CBD Living Delta-8 vape cartridges, and we were very excited to check them out!
Back in 2017, we reviewed the DaVinci IQ Precision Vaporizer and were impressed. The company recently unveiled its latest, the DaVinci IQC Vaporizer. At $229, the IQC is $70 less than the IQ2. The IQC lacks its older sibling’s Air Dial that lets users adjust the airflow, but it adds charging via USB Type-C. Let’s take a look.
Dry herb vaping is a fairly simple concept. Heat herbs, inhale the vapor, repeat as needed. But while it can be simple, there are many opportunities to blend technology into the process. AirVape Legacy SE Vaporizer puts simplicity and technology together into a single solid and sleek package!
We’ve reviewed numerous portable vaporizers, but few, if any, have the style and refinement of the AirVape X. The $139 vape is available in your choice of black or blue and, despite the affordable price, is packed with the latest technology. High-grade materials, state-of-the-art heating technology, and a lifetime warranty make this a great option.
There are very few times in life where things aren’t improved with a solid bag. Admittedly, “I need a really solid, smell-proof bag” isn’t necessarily the first thing on everyone’s shopping list, but you never know when you might need to transport some onions. Or, more realistically, when you realize you want to travel with the kind of plant matter that’s legal in more and more states. You need a bag that doesn’t make people look up and say, “weird, why does it smell like college in here all of the sudden?” That’s where the Higher Standards x Revelry Stowaway…
One of the things we strive for at Gear Diary is to make sure our readers are getting honest, accurate information. We do our best to be unbiased in our reviews, and we do our due diligence as best we can when new ideas get pitched to us. With all that in mind, we’re going to raise a major red flag about a pitch we received recently from a company called Qooore.
We’ve covered dry herb vapes here before, but they’re usually fairly advanced with fancy battery life, apps to control temperature, and other neat tricks. We recently tested a much simpler vape, the DynaVap M, and it blows the battery based vapes away!
As legislation to legalize medicinal and recreational cannabis moves forward in numerous states, and as CBD use continues to explode, new technologies for consumption are coming to market. The Omura Series X is a sleek device that heats, rather than burns, whole flower herbs with impressive results. It reenvisions the entire vaping process and looks like something Apple would release.
When it comes to “gear,” one of the best recent trends has been seeing how technology advances are transforming the medical and recreational cannabis business. One example is the Cloudious9 Atomic9 Vaporizer. At under $60, it is small, discreet, heats rapidly, and is a pleasure to use.
The other day we reviewed the Vessel, a line of vape pen batteries that are as elegant as they are enjoyable to use. Vessel offers two accessories that enhance the experience further. The BASE Charging Stand is a handy drop-in charging stand, and the Rover provides a safe way to store and carry your Vessel.
As someone who likes to multitask and carry more than she probably should, having wireless Bluetooth headphones is a requirement for me. However, when Apple announced the high price tag on the AirPods Pro, I wasn’t completely sold. Was the increase in price worth the upgraded features? I decided to get a pair to put them to the test.
The powers that be are often at risk of showing up in public without a suit or bodyguards. Sometimes, this is due to real security issues; sometimes, it’s just a common whim. But nothing will provide a better feeling of protection as your very own, personal armored car with proper features/characteristics and, of course, at a reasonable price.
Among the most impressive things to observe in the technology space are those times when someone comes up with a “better mousetrap” that’s far better than what it seeks to replace. This is the case with vape pen batteries from a small company called Vessel. They may be “just” batteries for 510 thread cartridges, but they are nothing short of gorgeous.
Marijuana is slowly becoming legal in more states than ever, and with that comes both regulation and increased technological improvements. Pax is at the forefront of figuring out how to navigate both sides of that coin, and they’re nailing it with the new Pax Era Pro!
As the title implies, those are just a few of the retro-feelies UNIS’s Pong coffee table will fill your home with. Alas, it is not all retro here my friends. Oh, no. UNIS ripped the classic game right out of its ATARI cartridge skin then stretched, molded, and modernized it into a sweet piece of functional furniture.
Remember the rainy days and long nights spent sitting in front of a small, glowing cube that weighed more than you while clutching a small rectangular controller? I do.
Combining quality materials, a simple but refined industrial design, and high performance, the Zeus Arc GT is a superb vape. The good people at TVape sent us one of the $229.99 portable vapes for review, and we are impressed. Anodized aluminum with a matte black finish and a gold chamber and vapor path, are key to why this is a quality product.
If you’re looking for a vaporizer that does it all, you should definitely check out the Arizer Extreme Q. It’s a vape, it’s an aromatherapy device, it’s a high-tech toy, and it’s serious business. Arizer refers to it as their “heavy hitter” and they aren’t kidding.
