Atmos Pillar Review:
The Pillar is a collaboration between AtmosRX and the rapper Tyga, and is compatible with both Dry Herb and Concentrate. In this review, we’ll go over unboxing, talk about the design, overview the interface, and load the Pillar with Dry Herb to test efficiency and vapor quality.
I’ve reviewed many Atmos products in the past, and they are always one step ahead. I frequently recommend them in my “Best Vaporizers” lists, as they make solid vapes, and respect their customers and warranty agreements. So I was excited to review the Pillar ?
Overall I was impressed with the performance of the Pillar; it seems like Atmos really stepped it up with their new generation of dry herb vaporizers. Here is why-
Atmos Pillar Kit Includes:
In the box, we first have the Pillar vaporizer, and we will take a closer on the design in just a few moments. We also have the instruction manual and a box with accessories.
The accessories box includes a cleaning brush, the micro USB charger, a small chamber tool, and the Concentrate insert. Atmos also includes a few replacement screens.
Atmos Pillar Design:
The Pillar is portable, pen-style vaporizer. On the top, we have the mouthpiece which can be removed with a gentle twist, to expose the Ceramic heating oven. The mouthpiece is made of heat resistant plastic and has a built-in screen.
The Pillar has sort of rings of ridges all around it; that will help to cool down the vaporizer and keep it in a comfortable to touch temperature.
Atmos Pillar Interface:
The Pillar has a very simple interface. To lock or unlock the vaporizer, click the power button three times rapidly. The LED lights will start blinking, and the Pillar will start heating up. To increase the temperature, hold the power button for 2 seconds. The next LED will start blinking to indicate the eating level. You can also press and hold the button to quickly increase the heating level to the maximum. Once the Atmos is ready to use, the LEDs will turn solid.
There are two airflow holes on the top of the Pillar, which will let air into the oven and then to the mouthpiece. On the side, there is the micro USB charging port. The Pillar feels solid and steady while holding it, and I love the rugged, rough look.
To turn the Pillar off, click the power button three times rapidly.
Use the Concentrate insert:
The Atmos comes with concentrate insert, which will allow to use the Pillar with wax. Place you wax on the little screen and pop the insert into the chamber. Close the mouthpiece and set the Pillar to the highest temperature.
Use with dry herb:
When loading the oven, you can use the supplied tool to pack it tightly. You want it nice and firm but not too tight to restrict the airflow. Loading the Pillar was easy, the herb just slides into the oven. Next, just close the mouthpiece, and the Pillar is ready to vape.
Performance and Vapor Quality:
Using the Atmos Pillar was an absolute pleasure. The vapor quality was excellent, and I was impressed by the amount of vapor the Pillar produced. The vapor was thick and dense.
The draw resistance was very low, which basically means that you don’t have to pull hard to get a large draw. Breathing in through the Pillar felt comfortable and natural. With very short draws I was able to produce nice amounts of thick, visible vapor.
I liked the ridged design, and it seems like it did an excellent job in keeping the Atmos cool and comfortable to the touch.
I was impressed. The Pillar is a solid vaporizer, and it performed well in all aspects. The oven is a perfect size and I like how easy to use this vaporizer is. This is one of the best vapes you can buy for under $150, and I especially recommend it if you are a beginner looking for a jump start with vaping.
Where to buy the Pillar:
Buying directly from Atmos is the safest option and will ensure that you get the full 5-year warranty.
