Boundless CFV Vaporizer Review

This is the Boundless CFV and it’s one of the few portable convection vaporizers that I actually like and recommend, so that says a lot.

The CFV works very differently from the other Boundless models, the CF & CFX, in that this one is 100% convection heating, whereas the other two use a hybrid of both conduction and convection in their designs. It really comes down to personal preference because both styles of heating have their pros and cons.

7 minute video review below for everything you need to know about this vape, as well as a demo clip.

These are the most important things to know with the CFV:

– It heats up fast, 30 seconds or less.

– It’s super efficient, it holds roughly 0.1g which gets you 5-7 nice draws.

– The outer shell feels a little plasticy and hollow, but it’s acceptable.

– You’ll get vapor from the first draw.

– You have to take kinda long pulls to get a lot of vapor (

– Stirring is required every few draws, it’s not a pain but you have to do it.

– Vapor quality and taste is great, definitely above average.

– Draw resistance isn’t too bad, it’s not very hard to pull from.

– It’s almost impossible to combust your herb, I haven’t done it yet even on highest temps.

– Battery life isn’t great but not terrible, I get 4-5 mini sessions per charge (5-7 hits over 5-8 minutes).

– micro-USB charging port, takes me just about 2 hours to fully recharge mine.

I was surprised by the performance when I first tried it, and honestly impressed, because there haven’t been many portable vapes yet with convection heating that I can say I actually enjoy using.

Overall it’s a decent package for the price and they also give you extra accessories in the box, which includes a loading tool as well as four different oven rings (three wood and one glass).

funny how you keep changing your opinion of course after you earned you affiliate money.

FYI This unit has been updated as of the fall of 2018! Much more impressive now. It now has the heater from the Boundless Tera which is much more powerful, a stainless bowl, as well as two 18250 batteries and full convection, it’s a staggering improvement over the original CFV, it will sell like crazy! Here is the update from Boundless: https://bndlstech.com/blog/cfv-redesigned-evolution-of-the-convection-heater/

Got it last week and I love it ! It comes in a great packaging , the tools that comes with it are really useful and the three reteiner ring add a little plus to the whole thing. The battery doesnt last very long , about 5-7 session on 225° but I can charge it anywhere on micro sd so it didnt really bothers me. The taste is really good and strong on the first three draw before it fade away slowly. Also, you won’t get huge cloud out of it but I like it this way. Right now, I couldnt be more satisfied, thanks vapecritic for your review it really help!

Peace, I just bought CFV. it’s junk. I regret buying it. I AM GOING TO RETURN IT. It doesn’t work with the USB directly. I went camping, battery died the first day! I had to miss many medicine dosages. The information provided with the manual didn’t say that it would not work directly on USB. I would have never bought it otherwise. I thought It’s obvious that it would for such a will praised product. Also the chamber size is too narrow and the cumbersome to load and only holds a very little medicine. I am going to go buy something which at least works on USB so I can run it on my car battery etc. CFV stopped working and said battery not enough when it was plugged! Vape quality is good and it looks stylish but it didn’t work when I needed it the most so what’s the point!

hey man, great review

wondering if this unit does wax, can’t seem to find anything online……what say you?

so what made you change your opinion of the CFV?

Amazing value for money vape

Will shaking it work as well as stirring the bud?

I’m planning on buying an E-nano for at home use and a nice efficient vape for on the go. Would you recommend this?

I want something that can get me to the moon while remaining very efficient. Preferably not too expensive as I’m already dropping 200 bucks on the E-nano.

Have i finally come across an honest reviewer? It seems like all I find is ones that get a commision from their reviews. Seems like Bud might be trustworthy. This review was great. I was leaning toward the CFV but there’s so much out there and you can’t seem to trust most reviews it seems. I will have to find your other reviews. Thanks!

Thanks for your help I’m an older woman and new to vaping I bought the unit but I’m having issues with LACK of any real vapour keeping working, could drawing too fast be the issue .

really want a convection vaporizer that’s reasonable and portable. This or the Arizer Air or any suggestions on best moderately price portable convection vape?

Ah that’s a tough one because there’s so few to choose from, but I personally like this CFV and the Flowermate Swift Pro the best as far as mid-range convection portable vapes. They’re basically the same vape with subtle variations: https://www.vapecritic.com/flowermate-swift-pro/

Arizer Air is a good one too, lots of happy users, just not one of my personal faves.

So it packs approximately 0.1gms and you get 5-6 drags and how long does your high last for that one session?

Depends on what temps you vape at – low temps will be lighter and shorter-lived effects, and higher temps will be closer effects to smoking (but without combusting the herb)

What’s up budd!! I have seen all your reviews, keep up the good work and vaping. I like how this product has conventional heating but should I be worry about the plastic toxic gasses ??

Hey what’s up! I’m not a doctor but I wouldn’t worry, the taste is pure and the plastic parts don’t get very hot, I still use mine a lot 😉

Is that grey washer that holds the oven rings plastic? How is the vapor leakage without taking draws, does the oven walls heat up at all?? Thanks!! Love your reviews. Most trusted!!

I would like to nominate this video review for a Vappy Award.

Does this vape resemble the Mighty and Crafty? Pretty cool if it is.

What materials is the vape made of?

Hey there, Bud. I liked your CFV review and think this convection vape is a great way to go for dry herb. My original PAX, for example, uses conduction heat, so the weed stays heated even after the PAX is off and it tends to waste what you don’t finish unless you dump it out right after. I’m one of those guys who doesn’t always want to finish the full amount that needs to be loaded in one sitting. Which unit do you prefer — the larger unit that uses both convection and conduction, or just the smaller convection unit? Where does this one rate in regard to your overall “best portable dry herb vape”? Thanks!!

Hey it sounds like this one would be right up your alley – smaller load size and you can easily take a few draws and stop, and it won’t continue heating or wasting your herb.

Each of them features convection heating, and they both have ceramic heating elements. They are different from the CFV, which uses a blend of quartz, wood, and stainless steel. All three boast immense power with long battery lives, but the CFC is different in that it uses conduction heating instead of convection. Its heating element is also made out of ceramic, each one offers different options so you can choose the one that’s right for you.

The largest difference between these 4 is their heating elements. Both the CFX and the CF are hybrid vapes, meaning that they use both conduction and convection heating. The CFV is a full convection vaporizer, and the CFC uses only conduction. All of the Boundless vaporizers heat to temperature swiftly; however, the CF and CFX heat up in an impressive 20 seconds, and the CFV heats at just 30 seconds and the CFC around 20-30 seconds. The CFV will taste a little better thanks to its convection heating, as opposed to the CF, CFC, and CFX vapes, and it is going to have a longer-lasting taste as well. This is due to the fact that the herbs are only exposed to the heat only when drawing. The CF, CFX, and CFC use conduction; therefore, they are able to provide much bigger clouds than the convection-based CFV. The CFV, as is the case with most convection vapes, will produce thinner clouds with less visible vapor as the material gets warmer toward the end of the session.

The CFV needs a lot more energy from the battery to heat your herbs with full convection, as opposed to the amount of power needed for the other conduction or hybrid vapes, the CF, CFC, and CFX. This means the CFV has a much shorter battery life compared to the other three in the line, which boast great battery lives. Even with a continuous vaping time of 30-40 minutes, you are going to notice the CFV has about half of the battery lifespan as the CF, CFC, and CFX. The CF and CFV vapes use a USB charger and need around 2-3 hours to get to 100% battery-life, while the CFX can charge with a USB or wall charger and only needs about 30 minutes to get to a full charge. The CFC, on the other hand, can be used while charging.

Boundless CFC
