Cloudious 9, makers of the renowned Hydrology 9 “bong vaporizer” have entered the portable dry herb vaporizer market with their latest release the Atomic 9. It is a super lightweight & compact portable herb vaporizer with a body reminiscent of the original PAX. The Atomic 9’s biggest draw being the price. It is an okay vaporizer at an even more astounding price.
The Atomic 9 is constructed of Aluminum Alloy with the standard Plastic Ceramic Herb Chamber. This build is the standard for most entry level portable vaporizers and holds up very well over time to provide you with solid vapor
Cloudious 9 claims this to be a dual function hybrid (convection/ conduction ) vaporizer. while there are components of convection that power the heating element, most of the vapor created comes from direct contact with the heating element.
The Atomic 9 Vaporizer is ideal for discreet sessions on the go where you just need to get the job done. Since it heats up fast and has a larger chamber you can fill it up, take a few hits and turn it off. This is not a party vape or something you will be having multiple sessions with a day.

Bang for your buck
At $59.99, the price is the first thing the Atomic 9 does to set itself apart. There are alot of comparable vaporizers that would try and squeeze another $20 or $30 markup out of a vaporizer like this one, so it’s good to see Cloudious 9 be honest with the pricing. This is a $50 range vaporizer for sure.
The Atomic 9 is the first budget vaporizer to offer both convection and conduction heating in a long and narrow chamber that does an excellent job of evenly baking your herb.
On their own website they state using this non- conventional approach to convection heating makes it the “smallest and most cost-effective convection heating vaporizer currently on the market.”
The Atomic 9’s internal loading tool is yet another nice feature given the deep and narrow shape of the herb chamber. This chamber shape is often difficult to load and unload and at least Cloudious designed the Atomic 9 to make the loading part easier.
Small and Compact
Where the Atomic 9 wins is size. At roughly 4” inches in height and only 1.5” in width, it’s an herb vape that fits like a concentrate pen in the hand. The weight is only 2.5 ounces as well so it is easy to pocket and take out on the fly.
The chamber is rather large relative to its size. You can fit around .25 grams in, but we recommend starting with about .2. The pack is super important as the sessions with a firmly packed chamber were leaps and bounds better than those with a loose pack.
With the smaller size the Atomic 9 heats up much faster than other herb vaporizers. It can be ready in as little as 30 seconds if going for 356 °F and under a minute to 428 °F.
The Atomic 9 comes with 6 preset temperatures ranging from 356°F to 428°F. Changing the temperatures is one of the biggest pains and downfalls of this vaporizer. I really wish it had something I could just change the temperature in a linear manner instead of having to screw around with the home button sequence.
Single Button Sequence
You turn the Atomic 9 on by clicking the home button 3 times. You can see the LED light on the unit blink and when it reaches green you have reached your temperature and are ready to inhale.
To change temperature hold the home button down when the unit is on, for 5 seconds. From here hit the power button to cycle through the preset temperatures, holding down the home button again at your desired temperature
Draws & Sessions
From a fully packed chamber you can get about 11 quality hits. Around hit 7 or 8 the herb starts to taste a little spent. And a single charge will give you about the same in a number of sessions; Around 10.
The Atomic 9’s battery can go a tad longer than other comparable budget vapes with an auto shut off which powers down after 2 minutes. To burn through all your herb if taking your time simply retriggering the home button three times will power it on again. In my experience I was able to get through a fully packed Atomic 9 session in 4-5 minutes. From this you can extrapolate you get about an hour of continual use.
