The Shatterizer was born out of the desire to find the perfect vape. The co-founders believe a portable, effective device designed for concentrates will be extremely useful as legalization unfolds. Matt Zysman, one of the co-founders, spent lots of time taking apart various vape pens on the market to understand how they worked and “Frankenstein-ing” together his own devices. He took the aspects (materials, functions, design) of the various vapes he liked, added some new things and tweeked it until he had a well functioning unit. It was further refined and mass-produced for the industry starting September 2017.
Shatterizer is a Toronto based company that has their product distributed in countries across the world including the USA, Brazil, etc. The best place to purchase a Shatterizer is directly from Shatterizer.ca (CAD) or Shatterizer.com (USA). Their websites also retail various other cannabis vaporizers if you’re interested. Don’t forget to follow their Instagram and Facebook pages!
Shatterizer Pricing & Selection:
The people behind the Shatterizer are passionate about cannabis vaping, and not just pushing their product saying, “We believe that there is a vaporizer or vape pen out there for everybody, and we respect and offer the “competition’s products” on our website – provided it’s good!” This is a very different perspective than a lot of companies have and I hope you check out some of the other vapes on their website because you never know you may find your new favourite device. As for the Shatterizer, it includes a complete Shatterizer set (base, dual quartz coil, dome, charger, magnetic concentrate container) a long with a replacement dual quartz coil and a dab tool. This complete kit retails for $69.95, (all prices CAD$) which is very affordable for the quality of product you receive. You can also purchase replacement coils in packs of 5, $34.95 for ceramic coils (CTECH) and $19.95 for dual quartz coils. (QDC) If you happen to break your borosilicate glass top, you can get a replacement for $9.95. This is unlikely though as the original glass top is still fine after 9 months of consistent use and accidental drops from the co-founders.
Unique to Shatterizer:
I really like the honest, informative approach taken by Shatterizer to inform consumers about their product, but also offer other options to meet their needs. A lot of people user the Shatterizer with a wide range from heavy consumers to people new to vaping and cannabis. People all around are using the Shatterizer, from legal age into their 80s to ingest their cannabinoids. There are some very unique things Shatterizer has included in their product: 3 voltage settings for temperature control, 15 second continuous heating option giving very big clouds, back up coil included, and a borosilicate glass top to see the vapour as you consume it. It also comes with a magnetic metal jar with silicone liner to store and bring concentrates with you. If you aren’t using this container for your concentrates your can remove it and use the magnetic end of your vape to secure it to metal surfaces. The facility that manufactures all Shatterizers is CE, FCC and ROHS certified.
Shatterizer Feel, Functionality, Quality:
I have seen the Shatterizer around the Toronto cannabis community and had perceived its’ high quality from what I had heard and seen. When I first got the Shatterizer into my hand I was amazed by how small and discrete the vape was, the whole thing can almost hide in the palm of my hand. As for the feel, it’s great! The light rubber coating allows for easy grip and isn’t cold on your hands. When playing around with the threading, everything is very well built, fastens securely and goes together easily, great job!
Shatterizer Looks & Visual Appeal:
The Shatterizer has a sturdy and discrete look to it, with a black rubber coating for grip and glass bulb. Everything is securely fastened through threads or double rubber grommet seals. The biggest visual appeal to me was how small and discrete this device is. You can easily preload it, keep it in your pocket, use it in public and everyone will think it’s just an other ecig/vape. I really like the subtle, but strong branding Shatterizer included with both the logo and name placed on various parts. I think it’s a really nice treat to have Shatterizer engraved on every coil.
My Experience With Shatterizer:
I really enjoy using my Shatterizer! When I first got it I thought I’d use it when I’m waiting for the bus or other times you’re trying to get a quick sesh in. I was really surprised by the large clouds of vapor provided along with the nice taste. This is something I haven’t experienced before with reloadable concentrate vape pens. I’ve been using this device a lot at home to avoid from having to go outside to smoke. The Shatterizer is also great for meetings or running around the city were it can be hard to sit down and have a proper sesh. I was blown away by the coil cap, I hadn’t seen any products with this before, but it stop concentrates from splattering or dripping onto the glass dome keeping it looking clean a lot longer. The Shatterizer is design to accommodate any and all cannabis concentrates (40+% THC) and 3 heat setting to create perfect clouds.
