ALD Amaze has recently released the updated version 2 (V2) of its popular WOW portable vaporizer.

We have been testing out the new device and if you are interested in what’s new and what’s changed in version 2, keep reading, we’ll go through the updates one by one.

We’ll compare the new V2 to the original ‘old’ version. The black device on the pictures is the V2 and the silver one is the original WOW.

The packaging has been updated although the ‘old’ box (on the right) looks just as good to me as the new one (on the left).

The device itself has gone through a design change as well. Looking at it from the front, the most noticeable is that the buttons have been moved to below the screen on the V2.

Looking from the side, the air intake opening grills have been removed as you can see below.

The air intake is now on the bottom, fully isolated from the electronics. You can see the air intake holes of the new model in the below pic.

The magnetic charging dock has been replaced with a 5 pin USB charging cable, making way for the isolated air intake path.

To expose the charging inlet, you just have to flip that little hatch door on the bottom.

This is an awesome update in my opinion for a couple of reasons.

First of all, the magnetic cable can become a bit of a pain if the cable breaks. When you use the cable a fair a bit, they tend to break down after a while. When the magnetic charging cable dies, you have to source one and until you receive the new cable, you can’t charge your device.

With the new 5 pin USB cable, you can simply use a Samsung phone charger or any other micro USB cable. They are pretty popular and easy to get hold of.

The second reason why we welcome the change over to micro USB charging is that in my opinion, it is more reliable and lasts longer.

The other change that we like is the simplification of the screen.

The original version displayed the temperature in Celsius and Fahrenheit, which was unnecessary.  You either use Celsius or Fahrenheit but you don’t really ever need both. It was taking up space on the screen for no good reason.

Showing only one temperature unit made space for the set temperature to be displayed in a larger font, making the display a lot more user-friendly in my view.

The puff counter has been removed as well. I didn’t mind that on the screen, it is a nice little feature to have to be able to keep track of the number of sessions that the device is used for.  However, even though it’s gone, I still much prefer the new screen.

The chamber remained exactly the same ceramic baking oven, no changes there.

The user’s manual has also been updated in line with the new box design as you can see below.

The last significant update to mention is that haptic feedback has been added, so the new V2 WOW vibrates when it reaches the set temperature.

This brings the new WOW in line with most vapes these days by letting you know when its good to go.

The inclusions in the box are very similar, although you get a tweezer-like packing tool and some pipe cleaners as well.

I don’t think you’ll have to clean the air intake path a lot, however, you get 5 of those pipe cleaners in the box.

The temperature range is between 100 Celsius and 260 Celsius just as it was on the original WOW device.

Conclusion:

The ALD Amaze WOW V2 performs very similarly to the original WOW, however, the improvements are welcomed to the device.

I find it easier to use the screen and appreciate the vibration feature as well. I’ve got used to it with other devices and I believe it is a handy little feature to have.

We are also very pleased with the change to USB charging. Ultimately, it is going to mean fewer problems with the charging cable and the charging dock.

Overall the WOW V2 is a great entry-level vaporizer that is reliable and does the job at a very good price.

I have been vaporizing herbs for many years and working for VapeFuse in Australia and Europe. I try every vaporizer and fortunate enough to have this as part of my job. I feel like I am living the dream. I love to hear from other vapers, so always feel free to comment on my posts. Keep on vaping.

  1. Hello, What would you recommend instead of this around the same price? its nice to hear that is easier to draw, didnt try the firts version but the one from cigGo. that was quite hard to draw. was looking thr replica of the mighty on ali express but still 4 times more expensive than this one… thanks for your help in advance!

    1. Hello Sam,
      Thank you for your comment and welcome to VapeFuse.
      To be honest I am not sure if I’ve come across any alternatives that has similar features and come close to the price of the WOW.
      It is currently US $41.40 as of today and for that you get a huge range of temperature, digital display, dosing capsules and so on.
      Most of the herbal vaporizers in this price range don’t have a screen and don’t work very well.
      Sorry I couldn’t help and please let us know if you find anything for around this price that is close to the ALD Amaze WOW. Thank you.

  2. Hi
    I’m willing to give vaporizing a try but I wanna make it good from the first step as I had an unpleasant background with vaping and I don’t wanna do that again. So, I know it’s in another price class but is this nearly as good as Pax 3, Nebula X, Zeus, Utillian, Arizer, Davinci and so on?
    Do you have some chart including these more expensive products?
    Thanks!

    1. Hello Laurentiu, sorry for the late reply.
      Entry level devices like the ALD Amaze often do a pretty good job at vaping herbs and some others do a very bad job at it. Higher priced vaporizers usually do a better job at vaping but not always. Here is an article when one of our reviewers compared the ALD Amaze WOW to the PAX 3 – https://blog.vapefuse.com/why-ald-amaze-wow-better-than-pax-3/ I hope this helps.

  3. my vaporizer has a strong chemical taste when inhaled! My lungs hurt for the second day (. I used it only a few times, running it with a new clean cassette, I realized that the vaporizer itself gives a chemical smell. I think it is dangerous to health.
