Helio Supply claims to put the power of the sun in the palm of your hand. Their innovative and clean-burning products include the likes of the SolPod Express Kit, notable for its discreet shape and size, versatility, and ease of use. In this product review, Respect My Region’s @joeyjayping tests the SolPod and gives you the downlow on this innovative new product from Helio Supply.
Who Is Helio Supply?
In 2015, the founder of Helio Supply recognized a problem with standard cannabis oil vaporizers. Before many states had legalized cannabis, the original vapes were designed for use as e-cigarettes. But e-cig oil has a different viscosity than cannabis or CBD oils. And because they were designed for burning e-cig oil, old vapes generally used a wick-based heating system, which had a tendancy to pollute the taste of cannabis oils.
The Seattle, Washington-based company was created to provide better vaporizer options designed specifically for the unique properties of cannabis oil. Helio Supply provides a new line of clean-burning alternatives to old-school vapes using premium hardware for plant based extracts. In addition to the SolPod, Helio Supply also produces a collection of handblown, USA-made glass, a handful of battery styles, a variety of cartridges, and other accessories for the cannabis connoisseur.
Helio Supply SolPod Unboxing Video
Upon opening the brown paper shipping package, a sturdy, professional-looking box provides some valuable information about the product inside. The SolPod is available in five different colors, fits 510 cartridges, and is capable of switching the power settings from 2.5 volts to 4 volts run thanks to a “smart preheat functionality.”
The SolPod itself is a sleek, smart-looking product that comes with a beautiful soft case/pouch. It’s appearance it very discreet, and it looks like an iPod more than anything. I can easily hide it in my hand, and even if someone saw it, they would probably mistake it for a music player.
A handy adapter (included) connects the SolPod’s magnetic thread to any 510 cartridge. Big thanks to Buddies Brand for supplying the cartridge for this video!
The internal 900mAh battery comes fully charged, and five taps on the convenient single button brings the machine to life. A nice, easy rip comes out smooth, and it’s not too hot. Joey can taste the terpenes which is a great indicator that the device doesn’t overpower the oil and burn the flavor.
Helio Supply really outdid themselves on this one. The SolPod’s discreet and appealing design ranks high for me. The fact that the battery came charged and the product was easy to open and operate make it even better.
The Helio Supply SolPod Express Kit was rated as a 9.75 out of 10. The only thing that really knocks any points off is the packaging did not exactly match the product colorwise. I thought I was getting the red and green SolPod pictured on the package, but the packaging contained a black one.
But aside from that, the SolPod provides a high quality experience. The things I love about this product are pretty much everything. Good vapor, perfect power, variable temperature settings, and it’s discreet appearance make this a winner. Out of 100 points, I give the Helio Supply SolPod a 97.5.
We will try the SolPod with live resin in another review. And because it provides a quality vapor and flavor experience, I’ll be using this product to review more cartridges in the future. Subscribe to Respect My Region on Youtube for more videos!
Worth noting, Helio Supply is currently giving away a free dual charge battery, shipping and handling included. There’s no telling how long this promotion will last, so if you want to try out the SolPod, you might want to do that sooner than later.
