Indica vaporizer Review
- Vapor Quality - 5/105/10
- Portability - 9/109/10
- Value - 5/105/10
Overall, the cool factor is the best feature of the Indica vape. The vape quality is not the best for the price. We recommend it for collectors or if you just fancy the Zippo style but if quality is your main focus, you could do better for $200.
Indica 2 is a vaporizer that’s so discreet, you’ll forget you’re carrying around a vape.
Designed to look like a giant lighter (Zippo lighter to be precise), this portable vaporizer is pocket sized, offers a great capacity, and is built to last.
What Makes the Indica Vaporizer So Special?
The Indica only catches the attention of those who are in the know. At first glance, you’ll mistake it for a Zippo cigarette lighter. The stealth factor of this vaporizer is unmatched.
But it’s not just the vaporizer’s sleek design that makes it stand out in the crowd: its portability is second to none. The Indica truly is a pocket-sized vaporizer that’s small enough to go wherever you go. Standing at just 3.15” tall, the only other vaporizer to rival its size is the MFLB (Magic Flight Launch Box). And its smart features make it a pleasure to use.
The Indica features an LED indicator that lets you know when it’s time to recharge, and also lets you select the internal chamber temperature.
By pressing the LED button down for 3 seconds, the vaporizer will display the current battery life.
- White/Blue: 100% charged
- Green: 20-60% charged
- Red: 0-20% charged
Using the included wall charger, the Indica will recharge from 0-100% in just three hours. Each charge will give you about 1.5 hours of continuous use.
Using the LED indicator, you can control the temperature of the heating chamber. Choosing the optimal temperature will ensure you have the best vaping experience possible.
The Indica offers 6 temperature settings:
- Cyan: 340 degrees F
- Blue: 358 degrees F
- Green: 376 degrees F
- Purple: 394 degrees F
- Red: 412 degrees F
To access the temperature control, press the LED button twice. Simply press the button twice each time you want to increase the temperature. The Indica will cycle through the above listed temperatures, so you can enjoy a truly personalized vaping experience.
The chamber capacity of the Indica is impressive. It can hold up to 0.26g of tobacco/herb. That’s nearly double the capacity that competing vaporizers offer. The chamber volume is 12.8mm. Each full chamber will give you 30-40 drags.
The Indica was designed to offer the maximum yield from each pack of tobacco. Compared to other vaporizers on the market, the Indica offers a cooler, smoother vapor with a rich tobacco flavor.
With the ability to change the temperature of the heating chamber, you have complete control over the density of the vapor. The lower the temperature, the lighter the vapor. Higher temperatures will yield thicker, more flavorful vapor without combusting the tobacco or herbs. This is a rarity as so many conduction vaporizers wind up simply burning the material, rather than vaporizing it.
When you purchase an Indica, you will receive everything you need to get started. Each Indica vaporizer comes with the following:
- The Indica vaporizer
- Cleaning kit
- Carrying pouch
- Beautiful wood case
- Charging kit
The brush and cleaning kit will keep your vaporizer working in top condition, and allows you to easily remove debris from the chamber and mouthpiece.
The ornate wood case provides you with a convenient place to store your Indica when it’s not in use, and the carrying pouch allows you to take your vaporizer with you on the go.
If you prefer not to carry around the pouch, you can always carry in the Indica in your pocket or purse. It’s small and discreet enough to be taken just about anywhere.
How to Use a Vaporizer
The Indica is so easy to use. Before your first use, you’ll need to charge it for a full 12 hours. After this initial charge, each charging cycle will take about 3 hours.
Each charge will give you about 1.5 hours of continuous use.

- Simply slide the chamber door down to unlock it, lift off the chamber door and lock it to the bottom of the vaporizer.

- Use the vape pick to push down on the mini spacer and pack the tobacco.
- Replace the chamber door.
- Hold down the power button for three seconds to turn the Indica on.

Once you have the desired temperature setting, wait until the LED blinks twice to indicate that the Indica is ready for use. Take a slow, smooth drag and enjoy the Indica’s easy vape.
After 10 minutes of being set to a single temperature setting, the device will shut itself off automatically to conserve power.
