XVAPE Vista Mini 2 Review: A Truly Versatile Oil Rig

The XVAPE Vista Mini 2 is a way of reimagining a powerful bubbler vaporizer into a compact yet gorgeous design.

As concentrates continue to grow in popularity, the methods you can use to consume them expand proportionally.

When concentrates first hit the market, many people were confused by what to do with them. Most of us probably thought they were some kind of edible.

Then we learned that concentrates could be vaped just like any e-juice on the market. The only downside was that the devices that allowed us to do this were not the most convenient designs. 

Oil rigs were once heavy inconvenient tools meant for home use. They were made of glass (like a bong), big, bulky, and required the use of a blow torch. If you put all of that together, especially the blowtorch, it’s not really a piece of equipment you can carry around easily without turning a few heads.

But times have changed:

Companies like XVAPE have launched entire product lines of a device called an ‘e-rig.’

A design that fulfills the same function as a traditional oil rig but throws out all its predecessor’s inconveniences. No blowtorches, easily transportable designs, and rechargeable batteries.

What Is An E-Rig?

Traditional oil rigs are bong-like devices constituted of three main parts; a mouthpiece, a water chamber that often has a percolator, and a dab nail or ‘banger’.

The water chamber (main body) is where your vapor will build up, and the mouthpiece is where you’re expected to inhale the vapor. The banger or dab nail is the oil rig’s version of ‘bowl.’ 

Only this time, it is not packed with freshly ground weed but used to hold and evaporate your favorite concentrate.

The dab nail is heated up with a blowtorch, and once it’s hot enough, you will take a dab of your concentrate and drop it in. The accumulated heat will evaporate the concentrate quickly as you inhale on the other end of the mouthpiece.

An e-rig like the XVAPE Vista Mini 2 works pretty much the same way.

An e-rig does not require the use of a blow torch. E-rigs can heat up the banger or nail electronically powered by a rechargeable battery located at the main body’s bottom. 

This makes the whole dabbing experience much more convenient because it eliminates the need to own a blow torch and opens up a world of possibilities for portability.

The XVAPE Vista Mini 2

The Vista Mini 2 is a sleekly designed, and extremely portable e-rig. It features a heat indicator for a total of 4 heat settings. Which enables you to set up the temperature to what fits best the type of concentrate you will be using.

This allows you to optimize your vaporizing experience and ensure a quality dab regardless of your concentrate choice.

The carb cap on the Vista Mini 2 is made with a one-of-a-kind glass design that makes it perfect for viability. The ergo-blaze flared mouthpiece is extremely comfortable and ergonomically designed for your lips. 

The overall design is completely detachable for easy maintenance and cleaning, while the seals between joints are made with silicone to ensure there is no leakage of water or vapor. 

Perhaps the most significant design features on the Vista Mini 2 are its ability to charge wirelessly and the dimensions of the piece. The size of the Vista Mini 2 makes it the perfect device to keep on your desk, on your coffee table as a nice centerpiece, or on-the-go in your backpack.

Another advantage of the silicone seals is that this enables your device to trap the smell and avoids smelly bags and uncomfortable conversations.

We personally found the Vista Mini 2 to be very well-priced for a device with the features this piece promises.

What’s In The Box?

XVAPE includes a portable carrying case with an outer hard shell that protects your glass and battery parts from unwarranted falls and clumsy hands. The inner lining of the carrying case is filled with custom-cut foam inserts that secure all the loose parts perfectly. 

Using The XVAPE Vista Mini 2

The 4 heat settings on the device are differentiated by color. White for the lowest, blue, red, and green. The temperature range goes from 280 Celsius and all the way up to 400 degrees Celsius. The banger will heat up evenly throughout the surface in a record-breaking 20 seconds. 

There isn’t really anything negative to say about the XVAPE Vista Mini 2 user experience. Although the price can seem a bit expensive, the reality is that you get what you pay for; thick clouds, long-lasting battery life, and a cool-looking design.
