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.

Atmos Vicod 5G Background

After hearing that the Vicod 5G was finally released, I was eager to try it out to get a sense for myself about how this vaporizer could compare to my previous Atmos vape. It didn’t take long for me to see that this was a big step up.

Atmos Vicod 5G Key Features

  • Rubber Grip
  • Temperature Adjustment by degree
  • Easy to clean Mouthpiece
  • Long Battery Life

The Vicod 5G kit comes with:

  • USB Charger Cable
  • Cleaning Brush
  • Packing Tool
  • Glass Mouthpiece

Atmos Vicod 5G Design

The Vicod 5G has a build that’s commensurate with its functionality. If you’re looking for utility, you’ve found your vape. It’s lightweight, portable, and inconspicuous when walking down any city sidewalk. The Atmos Vicod 5G’s exact specs are a compact 3.45” inches in height by 1.57mm in length by 0.78mm in width, making it a perfect handheld fit. You’ll more than likely also take notice of dual air vents on either side, creating a stylish symmetrical balance to a typically bland function.

This vaporizer has a sturdiness that only a certain type of vaper will fully appreciate. I don’t necessarily see it in a high-end club, but I do see it on picnics, bike rides, and hiking trails. The secondary stainless steel mouthpiece certainly contributes to this aesthetic. Although I could see this vape on Home Depot’s shelves, I recommend taking the trip to vape-smart.com instead and saving your money there with coupon code TVG10 for 10% off.

The rubber grip and coloring on the body make this vape feel like it’s part of a tool belt, not out of place next to a hammer or screwdriver.

Vicod 5G Mouthpiece

Using the Atmos Vicod 5G Vaporizer

Fill the chamber with your *desired herb* by snapping off the mouthpiece – it fastens securely back on just as easily as it comes off. The material should be closely and neatly packed together, but not too tight – 3/4ths has been my rule of thumb but it’s still effective when the heating chamber is nearly full.

Coming with a simple 5-click turn on, you’ll notice the Vicod 5G’s up and running when the temperature rises to your desired heat. Adjusting the temperature involves selecting either up or down with illuminated arrows from a range of 300-425 – that’s right, the temperature flexibility allows you to tailor your vape to the exact degree.

0.5g of herb should do the trick, depending on how tightly packed the vape is.

Vicod 5G Performance and Vapor Quality

Somewhere between 360-380 has consistently been the most effective for me, but to each his (or her!) own. Try not to stretch past 400, the vapor quality quickly falls off beyond that point. You’ll be able to take several drags before, to conserve battery, the Vicod 5G powers off and cools back down. The adjustment for single digit temperature comes in handy for those who are meticulous about their gear. I find that I’m getting the most out of the Vicod 5G when the mouthpiece is hot, but make sure it doesn’t overheat!

I notice that packing it once can usually last more than one session if you’re vaping alone. The right temperature means no irritation on the inhale which results in longer and more effective drags. You’ll know it’s pulling when lights on the face of the device start to blink and flash like you’ve just won at the slot machine. The best part? Little to no odor left behind, even in a confined space like a bedroom or office.

The device turns off when the temperature rises too high, which happens with repeated use, so keep your drags spaced 20-30 seconds apart.

Atmos Vicod 5G Maintenance and Battery Life

I haven’t had any trouble keeping the Vicod 5G clean, even after multiple uses. Condensation will build up in the mouthpiece but can be cleaned using a Q-tip or cloth with relative ease.

The Vicod 5G goes from dead to fully charged in less than an hour with a standard USB charger cable. How long does it take to die? 4-5 separate uses is the most common I’ve seen, but some days I’ll find myself at the 6th, 7th, even 8th use after the most recent charge.

The Vicod 5G comes with a 2200mAh Lithium battery with an average lifespan of about 90 minutes. That’s largely what makes this such a handy device for travel and outdoor use, as you won’t find yourself chained to an outlet for constant charge. The cherry on top? The manufacturer offers a 5-year warranty with the Atmos Vicod 5G which adds a ton of value to the deal. The Vicod 5G 2nd edition has rightfully earned its title of Best Vaporizer for Beginners on our list of Best Dry Herb Vaporizers.

The battery life will decrease faster at higher temperatures, so if you plan on being in a place without a charger, try your best to keep the Vicod 5G below 400 degrees.

    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. “

    I just received the 5g as a gift. I have tried to charge it. Left it on the charger over night. I have tried pushing the on button 3 times and 5 times. It won’t turn on. Help?
