Atmos RuvaLast update: January 11, 2019
The Atmos Ruva will likely be one of the smallest and most compact vaporizers you come across. Fitting snugly into the palm of your hand, this little device by Atmos (the makers of a well-renowned lineup of mid-range vaporizers) is likely to surprise you. The first thing you will notice is the unique outer-covering and the simple, yet effective way in which they connect the mouthpiece — the pyramid-shaped cap held in place with two large magnets that neither fall off easily nor resist removal - a necessary step if you want to pre-load this device and carry it around.
Any device that is manufactured and designed by Atmos is worth a look if you are into mid-ranged vapes that specialize in reliability. Many of Atmos’ products end up on “Greatest Value” or “Best Of” lists by the end of the year, and it looks like the Ruva is no exception. Quite frankly, their price point for the Ruva is one of the lowest in its specific realm of features and specifications. Being inexpensive is all well and good, except you don’t want your vaporizer ever to sacrifice vapor to get there — no worries with the Atmos Ruva. The vapor quality is top notch, spearheaded by its ability to get to high temperatures without overheating.
Light as a Feather
This device is and very light, the Atmos Ruva was immediately one of the smallest devices for its price range upon release. There may be smaller units out there, but it’s not likely many of them are as high-quality as the offering by Atmos. Starting with the magnets and going down, every piece of the Ruva are strong enough to avoid any mishaps in a pocket or a purse, but light and easy enough to remove that you won’t have any trouble with them on-the-go. The chamber is smaller, a necessary downfall of the compact vape, but it still holds enough for 4-5 hits, a low price to pay for elite portability.
Speaking of vapor quality, the Atmos Ruva can keep both its vapor and the device itself, free from overheating. There are a few different reasons for this, but they all start with the fact that the Ruva is cover in a grippy and luxurious rubber coating. We’ve always been big fans of rubber coatings on portable units; it can be a great way to keep your device free from scratches and marks while making sure the device don’t burn your hands. This extra bit of protection seems even more necessary once you see the temperatures the Ruva is capable of. That is, the Atmos Ruva can reach a range of 329°F to 428°F, more than enough for dry herb and with a great deal of customization to boot. You can pick any temperature in that range, which you should at least play around with because the ideal temperature for any device is dependent upon the user. Keep in mind that higher temperatures are better for intensity but worse for flavor and battery life.
Compact and Powerful
Underneath the trapezoidal part on the top of the Ruva that functions as a mouthpiece are this device’s powerful heating chamber. The power that can be reached merely by activating the unit is quite impressive. If you want to get the most out of it. Here is the process to activate the Atmos Ruva:
- Grind your dry herb as finely as possible.
- Load the Ruva by removing the mouthpiece and inserting approximately 0.5 grams of material in the chamber. Pack it tightly but not rigid.
- Replace the mouthpiece and press the Ruva’s power button three times to activate the oven.
- After your temperature is achieved, the display screen states “Ready” , then begin drawing vapor out of the mouthpiece.
- In 3 minutes, the Ruva will automatically shut off.
