The Ploom Vaporizer is the newest technology on the market available to consumers looking for a smoking alternative. For those smokers who are interested in “Switching, not Quitting,” or if you are looking for a smoking alternative with most of the same benefits as well as a few others e-cigarettes have, but want something that isn’t an electronic cigarette, the Ploom ModelOne Vaporizer is just what you have been looking for.
The Ploom Vaporizer combines clean vapor technology and all natural tobacco “pods” to deliver nicotine into your system without ever actually burning the tobacco or producing smoke. Ploom is set apart from electronic cigarettes because Ploom does not require a battery for operation (it uses butane instead). The model One’s users can choose between 100% REAL US grown & cured tobacco packed into tiny packages called “pods”, or from an expanding line of “Herbal Pods” which are nicotine free and contain a blend of herbs and natural flavorings that can actually freshen your breath like the intense Peppermint included in their “Kick-Ass Mint” Pod. We thought it would be a great idea to introduce Ploom to ECR’s visitors to reach out to those that submitted user reviews claiming they have tried e-cigs but they just don’t taste enough like an “analog” or traditional tobacco cigarette. For these people that want that authentic taste of real tobacco, we think Ploom will be an excellent alternative.
The Ploom model One Vaporizer is about the size of a pen, or a tipped cigarillo, and operates with a patented technology which uses butane to heat the tiny pods through Ploom’s proprietary catalyst system. When the Ploom Model One is filled with butane, it lasts for 2 hours of use before needing to be refilled. To quantify that, a regular tobacco cigarette takes 4 minutes to smoke (on average) and if you smoke 20 a day, that is an hour and a half. So the Ploom Vaporizer needs to be refilled with butane after the time you would have spent smoking 30 cigarettes. For those who smoke a pack a day outside, you can now switch to the Ploom Vaporizer alternative and have an extra hour and a half indoors :).
Each Ploom Pod lasts between 5-10 minutes, depending on the individual’s habits after getting accustomed to using the Ploom. Another bonus is each Ploom Pod is 100% recyclable so after it loses its flavor, you can recycle the Ploom Pod anywhere you recycle other metals, certainly this fact alone sets the Ploom far apart from tobacco cigarettes that produce a cigarette butt after each cigarette is smoked. We all know that cigarette butts are anything but recyclable and sight for sore eyes when littered throughout our cities and roadways.
Ploom offers two types of Pods with a current total of 7 varieties:
- Naked – taste of 100% pure tobacco
- Rocket – adds hot cinnamon and mint to natural tobacco
- Cafe Noir – a hint of cacao taste
- Gold – a hint of honey-cognac
- Orchard – natural tobacco combined with peach flavors
- Kick-Ass Mint – natural peppermint flavor with breath freshening appeal
- Blue Tea – English Breakfast Tea and berry flavors
Using the Ploom model One is simple, affordable and quite enjoyable! It is made right here in the US in San Francisco, CA to a high quality standard. Ploom now offers a starter kit that comes with a choice of a 2-Pack Black Case or a 2-Pack White Case that will hold everything you need to take your Ploom from place to place and is small enough to fit into a pocket or purse. The only accessories you will most likely need are extra mouthpieces and butane, which are both offered below $5. With the cost savings and the flexibility of places that the Ploom Vaporizer can be used (anywhere e-cigarettes can be used), ECR.net highly recommends it to our readers. This is a unique product that is the only of its kind, and after being an avid e-smoker for nearly 2.5 years now, I didn’t think anything could lead me back to real tobacco! However, the cleanliness and robust flavors produced by the Ploom vaporizer are a perfect treat for me when I want to take my taste buds to a place I’ve not yet been able to find with ANY other product, including the many e-cigarettes I’ve tried and ALL other forms of tobacco.
NOTE: This product is NOT an electronic cigarette. You are still able to use it everywhere you can use an e cigarette, but it is based on hookah or shisha technology and is classified as a pipe tobacco product. Electronic Cigarettes and the Ploom model One Vaporizer each have their own distinct and unique advantages and one is not better than the other. They are both great for their various applications and preference can only be obtained by trying each of them for yourself or reading the feedback by your peers below.
