While the AtmosRAW (now called the AtmosRX) set the standard in terms of herbal pen vapes, there are now a slew of other vape pens that have been released to rival the now-immense line of Atmos Vaporizers in terms of compatibility and performance. Atmos has got a pretty good bead on the bigass herb vapes and the small elliptical vapes, but there are a whole bunch of other vaporizers for wax and oil that I’ve tried which are currently flying under the radar. So I’m writing this article to shed a little light on vape pens currently for sale online that are similar to Atmos Vapes but with slightly different atomizers, glass globes, and other distinguishing characteristics.
We picked up the Atmos Liv a couple days ago and testing has been going very well. The Liv has made its way onto the market just ahead of the highly anticipated release of two new Volcano portables, so this looks like their effort to provide a comparable vape at a more reasonable price. When you get the Liv out of the package you should probably charge it before loading it with buds.
This will elongate the life of the battery and ensure that you’re able to get the most out of the heating element. We dig ours so far. It’s been way more efficient with the ganja than our Atmos Rx, and that wasn’t terrible for the concert or picnic use. The Liv is way more efficient, you can taste the flavor better and still enjoy a super tenacious buzz.
As you can see in the picture, the Liv is really slim, kinda looks like the DaVinci, but it’s alot smaller and heats up faster. The little antenna is cool and it doesn’t get too hot in your hand even though the exterior is made of anodized aluminum casing. Ours is the green one, in the middle there on the picture. Comes with all the necessary trinkets you need to have a great vape experience too. Can’t really go wrong buying the Atmos Liv especially with the $89.95 price tag, when you consider that these new Volcano vapes are going to be somewhere in the $3-400 range.
Atmos makes the best vaporizers because they are committed to going above and beyond. Most pen vaporizer manufacturers refuse to put in the extra effort or go the extra mile. Atmos made sure that everyone in their company had tried the vaporizer before it was released, they listened to the feedback and adjusted accordingly. Probably the most important factor in the production of Atmos vaporizer pens is attention detail they put into the design process.
While some of their pen vapes for weed have gained more notoriety than others all of the Atmos pen vaporizers are pretty amazing. The most popular of all their vapes is arguably the Atmos Rx (formally called the Atmos Raw), this is pen was designed specifically for dry herbs so make sure not to try and load your wax in it. The Atmos Rx is a great vaporizer pen for people that are looking to travel often and need to medicate on the go. It is very easy to transport and since the heat up time is so fast you can virtually vape with it anywhere. [Read more...]
For those of you who have been longtime readers of my blog, first of all, Thank You! I appreciate your support and interest in the pen vaporizers we talk about on Atmos-Raw.com. Today is a watershed moment for the site, as we will be debuting the very first non-pen-style vape for dry herbs. Up til now, my favorite portable for herbs was one that worked great but was a little bulky in my pocket.
The guys over at AtmosRx have cooked up a brand new line of stylish and sophisticated vaporizers for home or travel usage. These vapes are not only incredibly effective, but easy to transport.
Allow me to unveil…the AtmosRx Transporter, the newest handheld vape from Atmos!
It’s not quite ready for public consumption just yet, but I got a demo model from the manufacturer to test out and whet your appetite. Let me tell you, I’ve put it through the paces and it has yet to disappoint me in any way.
If you want to learn more about this brand new weed vaporizer, read on after the jump.
Some people are able to make the switch to vaping faster than others. I used to smoke a lot of spliffs and loved how easy it was to roll up a bunch of joints and head out of for the day fully stocked. The first few times I tried vaping the process seemed to slow down my routine a little bit and after a few days found myself back to rolling. Every few weeks I would give my vape a try again but I just couldn’t make it a staple in my medicating regiment. Finally I had vape session with one of my friends and right away they started laughing at my sub-par vape pen. After going out to her car to grab her pen we loaded some more herbs and tried again. I could not believe the difference, what I was doing before was definitely not vaping.
The AtmosRx vaporizer pen was delivering huge rips and I was thoroughly impressed. By the end of the month I had stopped smoking completely and was vaping every chance I got. The best part was that I could still vape my favorite blends of medical marijuana and tobacco with ease. The AtmosRx Jr cost me a little under $90 and came with the following accessories – one mouthpiece, one heating chamber, one battery, one USB charger, a packing tool and a user manual. Now that I am vaping full time I have been buying up vaporizers left and right. Different vapes perform better in certain circumstances, for instance the AtmosRx is great for walking around with but does pack the same power as a home desktop vaporizer like the Silver Surfer.
If I am not vaping my spliff blend with the Rx Jr I am usually using the Atmos Thermo W wax pen vaporizer. This pen is awesome for personal use and heats up really fast, it also has a cool little window that allows you to look in and see how much concentrate you have left. The Atmos Thermo W comes in three different colors, you can get it Black, Lime Green, Pink, Silver and White. I have a Silver one and love it, every time people see me using it they flip out and ask for hit. Over the years I have helped many people make the switch to vaping, you don’t have to preach or shove all the facts down peoples throats. I found the best way to help people make the switch is simply letting use one your vaporizers, like the DaVinci, one of the classic herb vapes. If you have 20+ different vapes like me just loan a few out so your friends can use them for an extended period of time. It took me months to make the switch but I am a glad I did. Not everyone is going to make the switch to vaping after just a few hits from the vaporizer.
If you own an Atmos vaporizer pen for any amount of time you have probably needed to replace some parts by now. Most people don’t realize just how many different accessories Atmos makes and the best part is many of them are interchangeable. The accessory I find myself purchasing the most is the AtmosRx Glass Screen. They are obviously made specifically for the AtmosRx vaporizer (formally the Atmos Raw) but I have a sneaking suspicion they will work well in other vaporizers as well. These screens are great for helping with people that are frequently experiencing the combustion of their herbs. The glass screens act as a buffer and protect your finely ground marijuana from coming in direct contact with the heating element.
The Atmos Protank Mini is a really great tank that is great for your e-juice. It was designed using 510 threading which means it will work with a wide variety of different batteries. Even though they the term “mini” the Atmos Protank can hold a substantial amount of liquid and tops out around 1.5ml which is more than enough to keep you vaping all day long. Another feature that sets the Protank Mini apart is that it is able to break down into multiple pieces meaning that if one part breaks you wont need to replace the entire tank, you can mix and match pieces.
If you are vaping a lot of cannabis concentrates like wax you are going to want to check out the Atmos Bulb Cartridge which is probably better described as a glass dome. The mouthpiece pops out and using a dabber tool to load your wax onto the coil becomes a very simple process. When I first started vaping wax I would go through the old regiment of filling the water pipe, heating the nail and dabbing some wax. Now I just walk around with my Atmos Bulb and dab instantly anywhere at anytime I please. It is pure vapor magic.
I recently had to pick an extra Atmos Optimus 510 Mini Battery because I use my other one so much that I needed to have an alternate charged and ready to go at all time. This small but powerful battery holds more of a charge that one might think at first glance. It comes in the following different colors – White, Silver, Orange, Green, Blue and Black. I like the Silver Atmos Optimus 510 Mini battery because it matches all of my different tanks but it is nice to add a splash of color sometimes and go with something flashier like the Orange or Green. Just in case you were wondering this battery will work well with the Atmos Portank Mini.
I have been bombarded with emails lately asking me questions about a number of different Atmos vaporizers so today I thought it would be best to write a short overview of each of their different vapes. Enjoy!

Pen vaporizers can be tricky, but luckily there are plenty of instructions out there to learn from. Atmos also has a ton different vape pens and not all of them operate the same way so it is important to know how to use it properly from the get. If you load the wrong the materials into your vaporizer or use in a manner that it was not intended for you can get into a lot of trouble quickly. Today we will look at some of the different Atmos pen vaporizers and talk about what makes them tick.
The most popular of all the Atmos pen vapes is the Atmos Rx, formally known as the Atmos Raw. It is a portable pen vape that uses a lithium ion battery and has no cords or wires. It is lightweight and very discreet. The Atmos Rx is also windproof making it a great choice for walking in the park or trips to the beach. The heat up time is fast and the pen vaporizer is capable of reaching max temperature in a matter of seconds. Overall it is a great pen vaporizer that is intended for use with lose leaf finely ground marijuana.
The next pen vaporizer that we are going to talk about today is the Atmos Thermo DW pen vape. It is compatible with herbs and waxes and is designed to fit easily into your pocket. It is lightweight and very easy to operate, the one button operation will make sure that there are no mistakes. With your purchase of the Thermo DW pen vaporizer you will get one battery, one dry herb chamber, one waxy oil chamber, one tank cover, a packing tool, one USB charger and a user manual.
The Atmos Bullet Max vaporizer is another pen that has been making waves as of recent. It is intended for use with herbs and nothing else, do not try to load wax into this pen it could break. This is a 510 pen that has a 5-click locking mechanism and is very simple to operate. The battery and ceramic heating chamber are above average and the USB charger allows you to charge the pen vaporizer almost anywhere. The only thing I dont like about it is that it only comes in two colors, black or white, other than that it is a handy pen that will get the job done.
A lesser known vaporizer pen that is great for use with e-juice or oils is the Atmos Optimus V2 vaporizer pen. They recently released and updated version of the pen that has new relaxed grip and wickless oil chambers. It also has a measuring scale on the side of the tank so you can easily tell exactly how much you have loaded/consumed. The one button activation is simple and straight forward and the user manual covers anything else you might want to know about the vape pen.
There are a few different Atmos pen vapes to choose from and sometimes people get them confused. After reading through a number of emails it was apparent to me that I need to write a post that details the pens individually. Feel free to bookmark or share this article with anyone that needs to learn more about Atmos vaporizer pens.
The most popular of all the Atmos pens is probably the Atmos RX (formally known as the Atmos Raw), it also one of the most expensive. For $189.95 (and you can usually find them cheaper) you will get a compact and portable vaporizer that is capable of vaping continuously for 72 hours. It heats to over 400 degrees Fahrenheit and comes with a 3 year manufacturer warrant. The heater core and batteries however come with a 3 month warranty and will usually need replacing after about 6 months, if you are very meticulous about your cleaning habits then your Atmos RX can last a while longer and deliver huge clouds of vapor time after time.
Another one of the more popular Atmos pens is the Atmos Nail, it is an oil/wax pen vaporizer that is extremely efficient and even more discreet. It has a lithium Ion batter and has a super fast heat up that will have you vaping in under five seconds. The Nail is similar in price to the Atmos RX and costs $179 but like I said before shop around a little bit before you buy it because you can usually find it cheaper.
There has been a lot of scuttlebutt around the interwebs lately regarding the AtmosRx and their array of personal vaporizers and vape pens. Atmos has been coming out with a bunch of new e-liquid and e-juice vape pens because there is a growing number of people switching from tobacco cigarettes to e-juice because these substances carry only nicotine but not the other harmful toxins.
But what if you’re looking to buy a vaporizer pen for herbs? Atmos set the standard for a powerful vape pen for dry herbs when they rolled out the Atmos RAW back in 2012 and they still make the vaporizer with the same precision, attention to detail and style. The only thing that’s changed is the name. So if you’re searching for a dry herb vaporizer pen and you’re having trouble finding the AtmosRAW out there, it’s because the name has changed. Since RAW is the brand that makes the little rolling papers, there was apparently a dispute over naming rights. Atmos has recently changed the AtmosRAW to be called the AtmosRx, which makes sense as “Rx” implies medication or a prescription.
If you’re like most people who visit our site, you may be looking for something to benefit your particular ailment such as glaucoma, chronic pain, or PTSD. If you want something that truly vaporizes without combustion, I would recommend vaporizing oils or waxes, but if you want something to take your dry, ground up buds around town in, the AtmosRx is as good as you’re going to get these days. It’s a powerful conduction oven powered by a lithium ion battery that heats a stainless steel heating coil. Some people will deride it and say it’s just a glorified “vaporizer pipe,” but for many people that’s good enough.
Lots of areas where bud is legal don’t really have a thriving concentrate scene like in Washington, Arizona, California, and Colorado. States like Illinois, Michigan, DC and New Hampshire are only beginning to experiment with dabs, buddr, and wax, so a lot of the people who want to vape discreetly still want to use dry herbs. If you’re one of those people who loves their sweet flower, I would highly recommend buying the AtmosRx Dry Herb Vaporizer Kit.
You can purchase the AtmosRx Dry Herb Vaporizer at this accredited retailer, where I bought mine.
