The Goboof Alfa is new portable vaporizer that was just released in 2015. This vaporizer is compatible with dry herbs, is extremely discreet and has some unique features.
The Goboof Alfa normally retails for $200 and is available in our store at the discounted price of $179.95. This price puts the Alfa in the middle to upper-end category of hand-held vaporizers and makes it a considerable investment. There are many different options available in this price range so it’s important to consider which features are important to you in order to make the best decision for yourself.
Goboof is brand new company and the Alfa is actually their first introduction into the vaporizer market. In a short period of time, they have developed a reputation as an innovative brand that stands behind their product.
This unit comes with a 2 year limited manufacturer’s warranty that covers the heating element and electronics.
The Goboof Alfa takes only 30 seconds to heat up, which is extremely quick. This is great for those who like to vape on the go as many portable vaporizers take up to 2 minutes to rise to vaping temperatures.
Power Supply & Battery Life
The battery is built internally into the device and takes around 3-4 hours to fully charge. On a full charge, the Alfa can last approx. 60 to 90 minutes depending on the selected setting and the individual usage habits. The Goboof Alfa also features pass-through charging, allowing you to use the vaporizer even while it’s charging! If the battery has been completely discharged of all its power, then it will require 30 minutes of being plugged in before use.
The quality of vapor produced by the Goboof Alfa is very good and on par with the most of the handheld herb vaporizers in the same price range. It has a hard anodized herbal chamber with a unique, innovative heating-pin in the center that provides even heat distribution and maximum vapor production.
Additionally, the Alfa has been engineered with the heating chamber on the opposite side of the mouthpiece to help reduce the vapor from feeling warm as you inhale it. This helps a lot on the “LO” setting. When this herb vaporizer is set to higher temperatures and runs continuously though, the rubber mouthpiece tends to get hotter while the vapor tends to feel harsher.
The Goboof Alfa is only 3 inches long and one of the most discreet hand-held vaporizers we currently have to offer. It fits very smoothly in hand and can easily be completely concealed in type of clothing pocket. The Alfa is also all black with a mouthpiece only a few centimeters length, making it one of the stealthiest portable units market.
Ease of Use
The Goboof Alfa is an extremely versatile unit that is relatively easy to use.
Heating and Temperature Regulators
This is where the Alfa really sets itself apart from the rest with its “Smart Puff” technology. In less than thirty seconds, you can heat the vaporizer to any of its five available settings simply changing the rotary dial. The first 3 are: “LO, “MID”, and “HI”. The LO temp is 374°F, MID is 410°F, and HI is 446°F.
The last two settings on the dial are “A/P” and “A/T”. The A/P setting stands for automatic heat by puff and in this mode the vaporizer will initially heat up to 374°F. After each puff, it will gradually increase in temperature until it reaches the maximum temperature setting. This allows for full consumption of your herbal material.
The A/T setting stands for automatic heating by time and will also heat up the vaporizer to 374°F where it’s ready for use. After that, the temperature will incrementally increase every 3 minutes until the maximum setting is reached.
If you are looking for discreet vaporizer with innovative features and quality vapor production, the Goboof Alfa is certainly a choice to consider. This vaporizer for dry herbs is very fairly priced and made with quality materials built to last.
