Summit Plus: Excellent Vaporizer that Doesn’t Break Bank
The Summit Plus, very much like his older brother, the Summit, is a portable and lightweight vaporizer. It feels nice in hand and is well made. With a rugged feel, great vapor quality and durability it makes this vape one of my favorites.
It’s designed to work in extreme weather and outdoor activities making it perfect for extreme sports lovers. Of course this vaporizer is also perfect for home users (that only like to watch extreme sports from their couch).
What are the main differences between the Summit and the Summit Plus?
Both models are very much the same in terms of vapor quality, durability and design. What makes the difference are some small (but yet very practical) tweaks:
The best upgrade in my opinion is the free smartphone app – The Summit Plus is now Bluetooth enabled! The app has precise temperature and session time control, information about remaining battery and the option to boost your session temp in one click.
Bigger Battery – The Summit + lithium battery is a 3300mAh charged with a micro USB charging port and has a pass-through feature allowing to vape while plugged in charge.
Built-in Stir Tool – This is a small but cleaver feature. With the built-in stir tool you can stir your herbs (dauu!) and clean the oven.
Stronger Magnet – This helps to keep the lid in place (very important!)
Splash Proof – With IP54 certification against splashing water and dust, the Summit + is perfect for outdoor use.
Tell Me More
The Summit + is a conduction vaporizer using direct draw as vapor delivery method (these can be a bit harder to draw from) but with this vape I didn’t feel it was an issue at all, I got nice draws every time.
To start using the Summit + simply hold the Go button for 3 seconds and the vape will start heating. Do this also to power off. Heating time is fast and takes somewhere from 35-45 seconds.
Use the +/- buttons to choose from 8 different temperature settings between 330º F – 440º F or 160º C – 230º C. I personally experienced best results vaping at 374º F – 410º F. The options are 320º F, 338º F, 356 ºF, 374 ºF, 392º F, 410º F, 428º F, and 446º F
You will get a vibration alert notification when reaching desired temperature (also will vibrate when switching vape on or off). Cool feature!
I like the “ergonomic design”. The outer shell is a high-strength polycarbonate and the grip is a thermoplastic urethane. In simple words – it’s very strong and feels tight in hand.
The dimensions of the Summit Plus are 4.5″ x 1.1″ x 1.4″ (11.4cm x 2.8cm x 3.6cm) and it weighs 0.3lbs (136g). Not so small like other vaporizers, but not meant for this purpose also.
With Go button in the middle, +/- buttons and LED interface that displays the temperature settings and battery level, this is a very user-friendly vaporizer.
It comes in three different colors: black, green and blue.
Vapor Quality & Taste
The Summit + features a laser welded stainless steel continuous pathway providing tasting vapor.
I really like vaporizers with a vapor pathway! For me it does most of the job in producing quality vapor. I truly like them more than others because the vapor cools down before it reaches my throat.
It’s worth mentioning that there’s no plastic in the pathway, it’s all stainless steel. Way to
I could get very good taste out of the summit and at higher temps I got great clouds, that’s the way I like it.

Makes Me Happy
Everything! From a $150 vaporizer everything is more than expected. It’s great to know that there’s a vape that doesn’t break bank but works excellent.
Great vapor quality, easy to use and of course the cool app that makes it much more fun to use.
Makes Me Sad
I really tried to find something that makes me sad, it’s rare that I don’t find anything.
The only thing I can say here is that for some people (mostly women) with a smaller mouth, the mouthpiece can be a bit big and hard to vape from.
It’s a Wrap
This review was made using the Summit Plus vaporizer by Vapium. It’s also good for the Summit (non plus) but keep in mind that both sell for the same price so why buy the old version if you can buy the new one for the same price?
The Summit + is a great mid-high-range vaporizer selling at $150. For this price this is the best you can get! I will not exaggerate by saying that there are much more expensive vaporizers that preform half of this one.
If you want to buy the Summit + vaporizer do that only at authorized dealerships, this promises you will get an original unit (no fakes) and a valid 2 year warranty. I recommend this store, it is an authorized dealership with excellent customer service and free shipping.
