SLX Grinder Version 2.5 Update

The SLX grinder is one of the best in the business thanks to its ease of use and the fact that it is completely maintenance-free. You would think that there was no way for them to make it even better but you would be wrong. The SLX version 2.5 is here to show you that it is actually possible to improve on perfection.

So how is the SLX version 2.5 different from the original? Aside from having SLX v2.5 on the top, the updated grinder now has stronger magnets that meet the N38 standard. Basically, that means that the magnets used in the SLX are stronger and more secure than ever. So you never have to worry about accidental spillage of your herbs when using the SLX.

The grinding action is even smoother and more effortless than before. That is because the manufacturing specifications are now higher than ever with each piece being QC checked to make sure that they meet the high quality standards of SLX. The coating used in the SLX now has more exacting quality control in the categories of adhesion, hardness, and cure strength. All of those upgrades mean that the SLX grinder is better than ever.

Why It Is Important To Use a Good Grinder For Vaping

A grinder is important to vaping because it breaks down the herb and increases its surface area. This is great for any type of vaporizer, from desktops to portables, and conduction vaporizers to convection vaporizers. The reason is that it allows for the herb to get heated more evenly in the oven of the vaporizer. That improves flavor quality and vapor production, which creates a better vaping experience.

The high that you get from well-ground herb is also more potent because it facilitates the release of the terpenes and cannabinoids present in the herb. A good grinder also improves the airflow of the vaporizer because the heated air can pass through the finely ground herb more easily.

Design and Features

The SLX consists of four pieces and from the outside it looks much like any other manual grinder on the market. It does have some flat indents cut into the top piece that makes it easy to grip and twist when you grind. Where the exterior of the SLX really differs from other grinders is that it uses higher quality materials than most of them do. The SLX is constructed using the type of aluminum that is used in aerospace projects like aircrafts and rockets, so the toughness and durability of this grinder is without question. 

The interior is where you’ll start to see the SLX become more distinctive. It has fifty-five trapezoidal teeth that are a contrast to the diamond-shaped teeth that you see in most other grinders. The interior of the SLX also has a non-stick, low-friction ceramic coating. Put all of those factors together and you have a grinder with a smooth, effortless action that easily grinds your herbs down to a fluffy, vaporizer-friendly consistency.

That non-stick coating also means that you never have to clean the SLX at all. Needless to say, that complete lack of maintenance is a big plus for pretty much everyone.

Performance

The SLX will perfectly grind down your herb to the perfect consistency no matter what strain of herb you use with it. You never have to use too much force when you grind because the motion is easy, smooth, and nearly frictionless. That means the SLX is the perfect accessory for every kind of vaporizer regardless of how much it costs.

The grind is perfectly consistent too, so every time you use the SLX, you can be assured that the grind will be the same as the last time you used the SLX. The improvements do make a difference, but only long-time users of the original SLX are likely to notice them.

Bottom Line

As you can see, the SLX is easily the best manual grinder that money can buy. That is because it has a smooth grinding action that does not require any effort, it grinds the herbs to a perfectly fluffy consistency every time you use it, and it never, ever needs to be cleaned. So, regardless of which kind of vaporizer you have, the SLX will be the perfect companion for it. The question isn’t whether you should get the SLX grinder because the answer is that you absolutely should if you’re in the market for a grinder. The question is whether it’s worth upgrading to the SLX 2.5 if you already have the SLX. I would say that it isn’t necessary since the changes aren’t huge game-changing upgrades and the original is already great. However, if you are in the market for a new manual grinder, then the SLX 2.5 is the one to get.
