Don’t you hate it when you rush out the door, get to work and realize you left your vaporizer in your car or at home? Vaporizer + iPhone = VapeCase, a new product from Lotus that combines two personal pieces of technology to make our lives a little more convenient. The case contains a separate 2000mAh Li-ion battery that accommodates popular tanks (510 + eGo thread adapter), and has four preset voltage settings from of 2.7V to 5V. The case offers standard protection for your phone, an on/off switch, a set of LED indicators to represent current power, and a micro USB charging port.
You can get one of these for about $100 for the following phones:
- iPhone 5c
- iPhone 4s
- Samsung Galaxy S4
- Samsung Note 2
- Samsung Note 3
- HTC One
I always thought a brilliant technologist would create an iPhone attachment where you could screw in your tank, and actually vape from your iPhone battery and be able to control all the voltage settings from an iPhone app, but this would take a ton of programming, although it would look pretty awesome. Although, imagine taking a stressful call while taking hits from your phone, but then spiking the current draw on your phone that might cut conversations rather brief – DOH!
The VapeCase solution mitigates eating up your valuable phone’s battery life, but the downside is having to charge both phone and case separately – not the end of the world, as most extended iPhone battery-cases also require separate charging efforts.
The case is a novel idea, and overall I think its a great effort but at $100, it will likely be viewed as a mediocre vaporizer battery, and not a great case. I suppose the next evolution could be an adjustable position for taking hits from your vaporizer without losing the talk position of the phone – who knows what obnoxious contraption may appear
