XVAPE has been on the market for a while now, and they have been a community favourite thanks to their great vapes and lower prices. We all love saving some extra money, but we don’t want the quality of our products to suffer the price cut... But that’s exactly why we all love the XVAPE FOG vape!
The FOG vaporizer is a great vape that offers simple, easy controls and produces very decent vapour. It’s actually quite advanced in its heating technology too, since it boasts the coveted Hybrid Heating we all love so much.
But enough of the formalities, let’s jump right into the features and other information about the XVAPE FOG vape!
XVAPE FOG | Features and Qualities

There’s a lot more to this vaporizer than these features and qualities listed, so keep on reading for all the info!
The FOG’s heating technology is the ultra-popular hybrid heating, and that’s one of the main reasons it’s vapour is so amazing. Hybrid heating technology combines features from both convection heating’s hot air, and conduction heating’s contact vaporization, and it works wonders.
We suggest letting the vape heat up for around 30-40 seconds, and then taking long, slow hits - that way you will get all the goodies in your product and dense clouds. Otherwise, if you vape hurriedly, you might be disappointed with the size of your clouds. The temperature settings indicated by the small LED lights are as follows:
Look and Feel
This vape is beautiful and very sleek in design, comparable to vapes such as the DaVinci IQ or the Arizer Solo II. Of course, it is much simpler, since it is a budget portable vaporizer, but it still holds up against the giants in the industry.
Its outer shell is beautiful black metal, which has an easy-grip finish to eliminate ‘dropping your vape’ from your daily routine. It also has a ceramic mouthpiece, which can swivel in a full circle for extra vaping comfort.
The inner workings of the vape consist of a stainless steel heating chamber and a small cooling vape path made from the same material. We like stainless steel in a vape, especially when it’s hybrid because it conducts heat very well and is easy to maintain.
All in all, we quite like the FOG vaporizer for its look and simple yet sophisticated design. Users can easily spot the attention to detail, and use its simplicity to their advantage during their stealthy sessions.
Battery Life and Charging Time
The usual battery life for the FOG is around 40 minutes of continuous use, which translates into around 5 sessions. This does come in a bit short in the world of powerful vapes, but the FOG has a special weapon to combat this short battery life...
This vape has a special feature, which is removable batteries. The unit itself comes with just one, but you can buy extra batteries for the XVAPE FOG anytime. Once you have extra batteries, you can charge one while you use the other, and then switch them out!
The usual charging time for the FOG is around 2-3 hours, which can be a bit long in comparison with other vapes but can also be just fine given the average person’s usage style. Therefore, we highly recommend getting an extra battery, that way you can vape non-stop all day.
Cleaning and Maintenance
The XVAPE FOG vaporizer comes with everything you need to maintain your vape between deep cleans and is also quite easy to clean when ‘deep clean day’ comes. Being easy to clean is a great quality in vaporizers, and this vape absolutely has it.
We do advise you to make sure you clean the vape out after each session to make sure the screens don’t get clogged up. But don’t worry, all you need to do is take the XVAPE cleaning brush and brush the chamber out. When the deep clean comes, all you need to do is soak the pieces that are removable (not the battery, of course) in isopropyl alcohol, and scrub the rest of the vaporizer with a pipe cleaner or cotton swab soaked in some isopropyl alcohol.
Once you’re done, rinse the soaked pieces, and run a max-temp session without any product to get rid of the alcohol vapours in the vape. Once this is done, you’ll find that everything is smooth and ready to go!
XVAPE FOG Pros and Cons
Like all good things, this vape has its pros and cons -- its strong and weak points, but it’s up to you to decide whether the pros outweigh the cons, or vice versa. That’s why we find it important to tell you all about our experience with the FOG, and tell you the honest truth about it!
