We have been testing out the new Wolkenkraft Aris full convection vaporizer for the last 3 weeks. The Aris looks a little bit like the big brother of the Wolkenkraft FX Mini.
There is an optional water bubbler available with the Wokenkraft Aris and we cover that too in this review. Let’s get straight into it.
What’s in the Kit?
The Wolkenkraft Aris box is packed with everything you need to get started on your vaping journey.
You’ll find the Wolkenkraft Aris vaporizer, a micro USB charging cable, a replacement mouthpiece filter, a herb capsule as well as a liquid capsule, a keychain capsule carry container, a chamber cleaning brush as well as an airpath cleaning brush, a silicone hot grabber for the capsules and a user manual in the box.
Design of the Wolkenkraft Aris Convection Vaporizer
The design of the Aris carries a strong resemblance to the FX Mini, but with added extras. It is small and discreet and nicely fits into the palm of your hand. The exact measurements of the Aris are 52 mm wide, 25 mm deep and 102 mm tall with the glass mouthpiece.
What is ECA Technology?
As you are looking at the box of the Wolkenkraft Aris, you’ll notice written on it “Powered by ECA Technology”.
ECA is a patented technology that enables you to easily clean your vaporizer’s air duct. I guess it stands for easy clean Air ducts – ‘ECA’.
What it means in practical terms is that you can remove and access the bottom chamber and the convection heating isolated airpath. This makes the cleaning of the device pretty simple and effective.
There is a chamber removal tool at the bottom of the Aris you can see below.
After you remove the pin, poke it into the air path and pop the screen up.
Take the screen and attached heating spiral out via the chamber and you have access to the entire isolated airpath. You can clean any residue or debris that had fallen into the airpath.
How to Use the Wolkenkraft Aris?
Using the Aris is as easy as it gets using an electric portable vaporizer. We always recommend putting your brand new vaporizer on the charger before the first use. This process helps to condition the battery and contribute to longer battery life.
Once your Aris is fully charged, simply slide the mouthpiece upwards to access the chamber.
Pack your baking chamber with herbs making sure you don’t compress it too heavily. Slide the mouthpiece back onto the Aris.
Press the power button 5 times in a quick sequence to turn the vaporizer on. Same thing to turn it off if you ever need to.
As your Aris turns on, you’ll see that the default temperature unit is Farenheight. Press the power button and the ‘-‘ button simultaneously for two seconds to change to Celsius. Use the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons to set your desired temperature. The Aris has a temperature range of 320°F to 428°F (160°C to 221°C).
Another thing you will notice on the OLED display is the timer on the bottom.
It is set to 4 minutes (240 seconds on default) however, you can change that to 3, 5 or 6 minutes. Press and hold the power button for about 2 seconds and toggle with the ‘+’ or ‘-‘ button to jump between the 4 settings. The time is displayed in seconds.
Once you set your desired temperature and session length, you are ready to enjoy the vapor.
The Optional Aris Water Bubbler
You can add a new dimension to your vaporizing experience with a water bubbler. Wolkenkraft has made an optional water bubbler for the Aris that may be worth the try. It attaches to the device in place of the glass mouthpiece and works very well.
Many people find bubblers a little difficult in terms of getting water in and out of them as well as in terms of cleaning.
The Walkenkraft designed the Aris water bubbler with a removable top piece, eliminating all the above-listed challenges with bubblers.
Our Final Thoughts on the Wolkenkraft Aris Vaporizer
The Aris is a well designed and well-made vaporizer that performs very well in terms of usability as well as vapor quality. It gives users a fair amount of flexibility with temperature and session time control. The ECA convection heating makes cleaning the vaporizer super easy and quick.
We found the Wonkenkraft Aris to be a great portable vaporizer that suits beginners and seasoned herbal vapers alike.
