Atmos Vicod 5G 2nd Gen Bottom Line

The Atmos Vicod 5G (v2) is the ultimate beginner and intermediate vaporizer. I was amazed by the amount of vapor I was able to produce with short (2-4 seconds) draws. With the extended mouthpiece, the vapor was smooth and crisp, and draw resistance was minimal. The oven is perfectly sized, and the interface is simple yet will allow precise temperature control. Atmos already released some of the best vaporizers I tested and it seems like the new Vicod follows the same line. It delivered in all aspects.

In-Depth Atmos Vicod 5G Review

Atmos Vicod 5G Design

I found that the design of the Atmos Vicod 5G is quite different from other portable vaporizers. Its ceramic heating chamber makes it a great dry herb vaporizer. What I really liked about this vaporizer is its sturdy built; every part feels quite solid and well built. The dual air vents provided on either side enable you to generate big clouds of vapor.

Vicod 5G Capacity

The Vicod 5G 2nd generation is equipped with advanced temperature control feature that ranges from 300˚F – 435˚F.

On the inside, it is as simple and user-friendly as it is on the outside.  The Atmos Vicod 5G is also compact enough to be carried in your pocket with ease. In terms of size, it is just 3.45in in height by 1.57mm in length by 0.78mm in width.

I found the capacity of the chamber to be around 0.5g with dry herbs; however, it may vary depending on how finely you have ground your material.

Using the Atmos Vicod 5G

To access the heating chamber, simply click open the vaporizer, load your material, shut it and you are good to go. The manufacturer provides two mouthpieces with the device – one is made of glass and another of stainless steel. I somehow liked the stainless steel mouthpiece more than the glass one. The Atmos Vicod 5G offers digital temperature control that can be altered to your individual taste by simply pressing the plus and minus buttons. The best part is that one can increase or decrease the temperature in units of 1 degree.

Vicod 5G Mouthpiece

The Atmos Vicod 5G is not exactly a maintenance free vaporizer. You will have to clean it on regular intervals. The good news is that it is easy to clean with alcohol and does not lose color or shine in spite of regular cleaning.

I noticed that the mouthpieces, especially the glass one tends to get sticky after every few sessions. Even the stainless steel one is not much immune to the stickiness issue. So, I advise to clean the mouthpieces regularly so that they don’t get stuck. However, cleaning this vaporizer is pretty simple with the special cleaning brush that comes with the kit.

Atmos Vicod 5G Vaping Experience

I’ve tried the Atmos Vicod 5G with different settings and for me, it worked best when I used finely ground herb and packed the chamber pretty tightly. Only the long, slow draws give the best of flavor and density of vapor. In terms of temperature setting, the Atmos Vicod 5G works well on 400°F. However, if you enjoy long vaping sessions and your vapor consistent in taste, a temperature setting of 350 degrees to 375 degrees will work well for you. In the beginning of the session, I did not get good vapor, but 3 to 4 draws down the line the flavor and density of vapor start building up and stay until the end of the session. But, for this to effect, you have to take real slow and long draws. Draw resistance is also very low which is nice; it’s not a hard vape to pull from. I usually do about 12-15 minute sessions and I’m averaging about 12 good draws per session.

Atmos Vicod 5G Design

I found the vapor produced a bit on the hot side. No doubt I have seen worse results but there is no dearth of better vaping sessions as well. So, I would say the overall vapor quality is average. Just like other portable vaporizers, the Atmos Vicod 5G tends to lose taste towards the end of the session.

Atmos Vicod 5G Battery & Warranty

The Atmos Vicod 5G comes with a 2200mAh Lithium battery with an average life span for about 90 minutes.

The Atmos Vicod 5G comes with a 2200mAh Lithium Polymer battery that adds to the convenience of the user. You can easily charge the battery with the USB charger and the wall adapter that comes with the kit. The battery life is good with an average usage time of about 90 minutes. However, it may come down significantly if you use the Atmos Vicod 5G on high-temperature settings.

The manufacturer offers a good 5-year warranty with the Atmos Vicod 5G which adds a lot of value to the deal.

    Did you read that manual that came with the vidod 5g second generation? The directions to turn it on as read in the manual does not work with the device. The manual instructs you to press the power button 3 times to turn the device on when actually it needs 5. The wax chamber instructions are vague The manual didn’t tell you anything about the screen or the little piece of string that came in the same small plastic bag. I own the 1st generation and second, the vapor quality is not any better but it comes with the wax cup and has a better screen. Thanks for reading.

    I contacted Atmos by email about the waxy cup and they replied:

    “The wick and screen is there to help absorb the waxy essence for better vaporization depending on the consistency of your product. The wick goes inside the cup first then the screen would go on top of the wick. If your waxy essence is thin and has movement in room temperature then it would be good to use the wick with the metal screen. If your waxy essence is hard with no movement then you can take the screen and wick out of the cup. You can use soapy water or rubbing alcohol and cotton swab to clean the cup. Please feel free to contact us directly at the number listed below if you should have any further questions. Any agent will be happy to assist you. “
