Now and then a product comes along that you can tell it's innovative just by looking at it. That's the case with the Sutra S-Type. Sutra’s long streak of creating new and unique devices continues with this sleek, yet curvy vaporizer. But the unique design isn’t the only factor that will have you running for your wallet; the S-Type also boasts desktop-like vapor performance in a compact package.
With adjustable temperature settings controlled with a single button, you will be blowing massive clouds in no time. The simplicity of its design guarantees you will be able to operate the S-Type with very little practice and it even has the power headroom to vaporize concentrates.
Unlike some of the more fashion-conscious devices out there, the beauty of the S-Type isn’t just skin-deep. In other words, it boasts some of the best construction in the business. The outer shell is composed of a polycarbonate material that is incredibly heat-resistant and durable. It means the S-Type gets the best of both worlds: having the conductive qualities of glass while being nearly unbreakable. Inside, you can expect the best as well, because the S-Type utilizes a ceramic oven so you can taste whatever material you end up using. Combining a robust construction with the versatility of a dual-use vaporizer rocketed the S-Type to the top of many reputable “Best Of” lists as soon as it came out.
When you first catch a glimpse of the S-Type, you aren’t sure what it is. It’s a curvy vase-like device that certainly doesn’t scream “high-tech dual-use vaporizer.” It doesn’t come across as anything but decorative. And that’s a good thing. The inconspicuous design of the S-Type is one of its defining features. The S-Type packs a ton of quality into a small 5 inches-profile. But there are still some secrets to be found. For instance, the engineers over at Sutra made the silicone-rubber mouthpiece a magnet, ensuring loading and unloading the device is as comfortable as possible.
A well-built vaporizer will ultimately be judged on one thing: the ability to produce quality vapor. Luckily the Sutra S-Type passes that test with ease. This device has a powerful 2600mAh battery that evenly heats its ceramic core oven in no more than 30 seconds. You can even use the S-Type when you are charging it, thanks to pass-through technology. Plus, there is an automatic shutoff function included to preserve power and keep you from damaging your device. As a result, there’s almost no way one person can go through a single charge in a day by themselves. It would take a concerted effort even to weaken this battery in 24 hours.
Four Levels of Temperature Control
Power without control is chaos; that’s why the S-Type has four different levels of heat available with just the press of a single button. Each set will work better with a specific type of herb. For instance, if you have dry herbs, you will want to vaporize them on a lower setting to avoid combustion. If your materials are on the wet and sticky side, you can amp up the power and get the same vapor clouds you will come to expect from the S-Type.
For dried herbs:
- Low: 390°F
- Medium: 420°F
- High: 450°F
For waxes or concentrates:
- Fixed to a maximum temperature of 480°F
Keep in mind that this heat setting will likely burn herbs!
