Flowermate V5.0X MiniLast update: October 3, 2018
The V5.0X Mini is the little brother of the Flowermate V5.0X. Powered by a 1,800mAh battery, the V5.0X Mini preserves similar features of its predecessor but heats up slightly faster. Moreover, it can also be used as power bank and charge your phone for example. There's always something to love about Flowermate!
Flowermate V5.0X Mini Review
Big things can come in small packages, even miniature ones. That’s how it is with the Flowermate V5.0X Mini, one of the smallest dual-use vaporizers ever produced by Flowermate. It’s a bit more advanced than some of its counterparts in the Flowermate lineup, featuring more temperature presets and better battery life and power. It heats up fast and it’s a breeze to use, trademarks of the Flowermate brand. What’s more, Flowermate has made it completely adaptable to its wide range of accessories. This includes joints that allow it to be used with water pipes to make your vapor that much cooler and flavorful. However, its incredible portability is what makes the V5.0X Mini a top item on the market. Weighing next to nothing and fitting into the palm of your hand, the Mini is a go-to item for vaping on the go and in any situation where discretion is key. There’s nothing small about the performance of the V5.0X Mini.
Mini is the X Factor
If it is not clear already, the V5.0X Mini is the smaller version of the popular V5.0X vaporizers from Flowermate. Recently, Flowermate has made a point to create smaller versions of their more popular vaporizers like the V5.0S and the V5.0S Pro. There is nothing particularly large about these products in the first place but mini’s are stealthier, less expensive options. Don’t worry though, they still have all the great features of their larger brothers. The Mini X, for example, includes pre-packing tanks to keep you vaping on the go. If you leave with a full chamber, you can always pack a pre-loaded tank to extend your fun. Even with a shorter draw stem, the glass mouthpiece does a great job of keeping your vapor cool and flavorful.
Smaller, Better, Faster
Everything about the Mini X is meant to be swift and easy. The operation of this device is as simple as any common appliance and is a great choice for those who are just now picking up vaporizing. You must simply press the single button five times to begin the heating process. After about 30 seconds, the flashing light on the front of the Mini X will go solid indicating it is time to start vaping! You can adjust the temperature presets by holding the button down and waiting for the lighted indicator to change. For as simple a device as this, it is packed with quality. It uses a fully ceramic heating chamber that is heated by diffused air jets and even has a 6-minute shutoff timer to keep users from forgetting to turn it off. Featuring a sliding-door cover, the Mini X hides the strong borosilicate glass mouthpiece in a chamber at the base of the device and the heating chamber on the top. There’s so much value in the Flowermate Mini V5.0X that it’s hard to believe their engineers packed it all into such a small frame.
Power Bank function
The most unique feature of the V5.0X Mini is that it can operate as an on-the-go power bank for any of your other electronics that you bring with you. Using the power of the included 1,800mAh lithium-ion battery, your Mini X becomes your best friend either on the subway or out in the woods somewhere. The battery can last for up to 1.5 hours of use on its own, so for a normal day, this will get you as far as you need to go. You will need to keep the Mini X’s charger nearby, as it relies on a DC charger to operate. However, it will charge anywhere in the world, so you have that going for you.
Pick a Preset
The main advantage of the Mini X over its less expensive cousin the Mini S is the added temperature control. The Mini X features 6 different presets that are all accessible using the single button interface that Flowermate has perfected over the years. The range of temperatures are more than enough to vaporize both herbs and concentrates without risking combustion at any point. The range consists of these six temperatures:

In a world where it seems like everything electronic is ballooning in size and cost, the Flowermate V5.0X Mini is a breath of fresh air. I particularly like the hidden mouthpiece design, as well as the sliding door on the loading chamber. If you’re the type to carry your vaporizer with you all day, the power bank makes the Mini X a no-brainer. For someone like me that spends a long time away from the house, it’s a perfect complement to a home unit. Although, considering the solid construction of the Mini X, this could also be used as your main vaporizer with no issues. If you want a portable unit that you can count on for a long time, look no further than the Flowermate V5.0X Mini or the regular Flowermate V5.0X.
