In-Depth Cloud V ELECTRO e-Nail Review

The Cloud V portable e-Nail was released in the beginning of February 2016 and was much anticipated by vaping enthusiasts. Recently, this March 2017, ElectroMINI ($149 from Vape-Smart) was released – the smallest brother of Cloud V Electro and the one of the most powerful portable e-Nail. It features a fully temperature controlled system that allows you to choose your desired temperature from 550°F to 1000°F.

Cloud V ElectroMINI

The Cloud V ElectroMINI e-Nail is powered by 3300mAh rechargeable battery capacity with adjustable temperature from 550°F to 1000°F.

Cloud V, known to produce top performing units such as the Phantom and the Cloud Nova. Cloud V Electro e-Nail is a different type of a Vaporizer and is also called an “eRig” or an Electronic Bong. It features an “Aqua Bubbler” water attachment that may come with Side Arm or Straight Arm.

How to Use the Cloud V Electro e-Nail

The Cloud V eNail is approximately  11 inches tall and feels solid and well balanced to hold. To use, press the power button 3 times and the unit is ready to use. It has 2 temperature settings- 800|1000 degrees and you can switch easily between the two with a long press (4 seconds) on the power button.

The Aqua Bubbler connects to the e-Nail with a twisting motion, and the Dab should be placed on the Titanium Dish. On the Side Arm Bubbler the opening is on top of the dish, and on the Straight Arm there is a hole in the glass when you insert you Dab with a toll. I personally found that the Side Arm is more comfortable to use and the top opening proved to be easier to load and clean. It also looks cooler in my opinion 😉

Cloud V e-Nail Vapor Quality

The Vapor Quality of the Electro was beyond my expectations. The heat up time is speedy, and the Titanium nail produced some of the best Vapor I ever tasted. The water attachment does a great job of filtering and cooling down the Vapor, and it is smooth and pleasant. The Cloud V Electro was a pleasure to review and is currently my Go To Dab. Great Device.

Cloud V Electro e-Nail Temperature Option

The Electro’s max temperature is far higher than any other battery-powered e-Nail I’ve used. The first setting (signified by a blue LED light) is 800°F, and the second setting (signified by a red LED light) is 1000°F. To me, this is pretty impressive, as not even a lot of traditional e-Nails I’ve used that draw power from wall outlets are capable of reaching 1000°F.

To toggle between temps, you just press and hold the power button for four seconds. Equipped with a memory function, the Electro will automatically set itself to your last session’s temperature and start heating to that setting once activated.

The LED lights will flash while the nail heats to the desired temperature. Once that temp is reached, the LED light will change to solid, and you’re ready to dab. The Electro heats up very quickly. It only takes about 15 seconds to reach the low or the high setting, which I found kind of interesting. You would think that it would take a little more time to reach the 1000°F than 800°F, but maybe the battery uses more power on the high setting to reach temp in the same amount of time as the low. That’s just a speculation, but either way, you won’t be waiting around.

Charging the Electro e-Nail

There are actually two different ways you can charge the Electro. The first (and most convenient) is to utilize the charging base. When the battery is placed in the base, you simply connect the charging cable from the back of the base to the adapter or USB port. A small LED light that’s located on the front of the battery is visible through the charging base, so you can view the status. Red means charging, and green obviously means good to go.

There is also a charging port located underneath the base of the battery itself, just in case you misplace the charging base, or it breaks or something. I’m not sure why you would charge the unit this way, as it requires the battery to be laying down sideways, but it’s a nice backup option.

Cloud V recommends charging the Electro for at least 9 hours before its first use. This is a pretty common recommendation with vaporizers, and any electronic device really, as it helps to condition the battery for future charging. If used regularly, Cloud V also recommends charging the Electro for about 7 hours. I never recommend leaving vaporizers on the charger unattended. I always just hook it up to the charger in between uses and found that there’s always enough juice for my sessions.

One downside about the Electro is that unlike some other popular eRigs, the battery is embedded, and is not removable or replaceable. This is kind of a bummer, as there are less expensive portable units on the market that do have replaceable batteries. However, it’s trade-off, because those units can’t reach temperatures nearly as high as the Electro – so in the end – you have to ask yourself what’s more important to you.

    Overall a decent product but for what it is worth, I would take back my investment. After paying $295, after tax, you soon find out you will be having to pay an additional $20-25 dollars every 1 to 2 months for a replacement nail. I bought my electro at the end of November, having came with a quartz and titanium nail, my quartz was the first to go out. Not even a month of using it and it burned out. About three weeks later, my titanium nail burns out. I am now on my third nail that I had to purchase at my local smoke shop. I never abused and always maintained my nails. I emailed the manufacturer and they did nothing for me simply reiterating what the directions already said. Be careful with this one!
