BlackoutX PREM31R – The Best 3-in-1 Vaporizer Under $100
Let me start from the end, this vaporizer is one heck of a good surprise! When I got BlackoutX’s PREM31R I was really excited to see in “first-hand” what’s all the buzz about. This is actually the first vaporizer under $100 that I can truly recommend as it actually works!
BlackoutX really had done an outstanding job with this vape. The vapor is tasty, the fixed temperature settings are tuned in accuracy, the battery is big and the price is affordable.
I got to test it with dry herbs and extracts. For my impression, it works better with dry herbs than extracts.
Tell Me More
PREM31R is a convection vaporizer. By the name of it, you can guess that it can handle 3 types of materials; dry herb, wax and oil/liquid.
The PREM31R is really simple to use. To start using it, simply unlock it with 3-click safety lock feature, the device then will blink green and will start heating until it reaches the first temperature setting.
To move on to the medium temperature setting click and hold the button for 1.5 seconds until led changes to blinking yellow. Repeat to move on to the highest temperature setting.
The 3 fixed temperatures settings are:
- Green light = 375F (190C) = ~35 seconds heat up time.
- Yellow light = 410F (210C) = ~40 seconds heat up time.
- Red light = 445F (230C) = ~45 seconds heat up time.
With a large 2200 mAh Battery, you don’t have to worry about charging while vaping outdoors. The battery lasts 120 minutes, that’s about 34 sessions (if taking into consideration that each session lasts 3.5 minutes).
With that said, I am ambivalent to the 3.5 minutes auto shut off feature. I do like it because it saves battery and gives you an indication of how long the device is being in use. But I don’t like it because it can be annoying during a long session with multiple friends.
With a chamber size of ~0.6+g, you’ll get one of the biggest oven sizes on market. While it’s big, you don’t have to worry because as opposed to other vapes this vape works just as fine when only a half of the oven is packed.
It takes the PREM31R 110 minutes to fully charge. It is advised to fully charge your device before the first use, but if you can’t wait and just have to try it out it does come with some power in the battery.
The PREM31R is made out of 2 main parts, the body, and the mouthpiece. The body is designed in style with a carbon fiber finish giving it a sleek and cool look.
The mouthpiece is made out of plastic and its tip is covered with removable rubber piece making it perfect for cleaning and maintaining the mouthpiece sterile.
The total weight of the PREM31R is 4.8oz (136g) and it stands 6.7” (17cm) tall. It feels very nice in hand, not too light, that could give it a “cheap” feel and not too heavy making it uncomfortable to hold, it’s just perfect.
At the bottom, you will find the mini USB connection for charging and an X-shaped LED indicator that changes to green when the vape is fully charged.
Vapor Quality & Taste
OK, this is where things go exciting. At first, I didn’t know what to expect from a budget vaporizer, but this device really surprised me with its super tasty vapor, one that doesn’t fall from other more expensive vaporizers out there.
As said before, the temperature settings are tuned in much accuracy, you can really crank your way up throughout the session, just the way I like it.
For me, starting with the medium temp set was perfect, giving me thick, smooth and tasty clouds from the beginning, I didn’t feel any burnt taste in this temp.
Only when moving up to the highest temp I could feel a bit of burnt taste, but that is one acceptable taste in the high temps when you want to squeeze out all the THC just a bit before combustion occurs.
Also, there are two air holes on the body of the PREM, making the airflow super-efficient and great. If you’re like me and you like to inhale large draws then you’ll like this feature. While it can handle a large draw it can clog the mouthpiece, if that happens just hit a bit slower.

Makes Me Happy
What makes me happy the most is the great value for the price you get with this vape. There are much more expensive vaporizers that perform half of this one.
Another thing you should take into consideration is that this is a 3 in 1 vape, if you’re into vaping herbs and extracts, this vape will do the job.
One last thing that makes me happy is the ease of cleaning, simply take the mouthpiece off and use the included cleaning brush to clean the chamber and the mouthpiece filter screen. From time to time you can remove the filter screen, wash it and the mouthpiece for a super clean vaping experience.
Makes Me Sad
Not much to say here. The only thing you should know is that this vape is quite big, I mean not huge, but bigger than others. It is 6.7” (17cm) and can be hard/not convenient to fit in your pocket, making it not that of a discreet vape. If that’s what you’re looking for, look for another vaporizer.
It’s a Wrap
The PREM31R delivers tasty vapor with big clouds, it’s good for multiple purposes (herbs and extracts), it’s good for vaping alone or with friends, it’s designed with style and it’s affordable in price. This vaporizer “leaves dust” on other in its category, making it a perfect buy for the first vape or as an additional one.
The PREM31R vaporizer costs only $79.95, if you want to buy it do that only at authorized dealerships, this promises you will get an original unit (no fakes) and a valid 2 years warranty. I recommend this store, it is the official BlackoutX (the makers of the PREM31R) shop with excellent customer service and free shipping within the US.
